Ten reasons whyI find parents sooo confusing.
1. For the first four years of our life, they tell us to speak up and walk. Then, until we're eighteen, they tell us to shut up and sit down. What's up with that?
2. They tell us to stand up for what we believe in. Well, I believe I should have a sleepover tonight, my parents say no, I stand up for myself, and then I'm grounded.
3. They yell at us when we curse, then a guy cuts them off and they start cursing like there's no tomorrow.
4. Mom wakes you up for school, you ask for five more minutes, she says no, you do downstairs and find Dad snoozing on the couch...
5. They tell us not to care about if people think your pretty or not. Then you find them in the bathroom putting on 800 tons of makeup.
6. They tell us that we don't need to follow trends. Then their smart phone rings.
7. They tell us that we're perfect in every single way, so why do they get us premium touch-ups on picture day?
8. They tell us that we should ony wear clothes that feel comfortable. Well, this tank top is very comfortable so why can't I wear it?
9. When we mess up, they yell at us. When they mess up, they say "Accidents happen!"
10. They say we can't use knives, then they tell us to make our own bagels.
