    Wipe The Floor With You

    | CA, USA | Siblings

    (My brother has just lost two very tiny screws and is now searching for them. His room is carpeted. He has just walked out of his closet with a large and very strong magnet.)

    Brother: “This is it, floor. Today is your day of reckoning.”

    Not Sweet On Your Dinner Choice

    | VIC, Australia | Parents & Guardians

    Dad: “Get yourself something to eat, anything.”

    (I get some chocolate from the pantry.)

    Me: “Anythiiiiiiing?”

    Dad: *without looking* “Anything.”

    Me: *waves the chocolate around, making a noise* “Anythiiiiiiiiiiiing?”

    Dad: *starts to go outside* “Yes, anything.”

    Me: *gives up and holds the chocolate in front of his face* “ANYTHIIIIIIIIIIIING?”

    Dad: “What’s this? No! Get some food!”

    Me: “Technically, it’s food…”

    The Force Is Strong In My Family…

    | Fife, Scotland, UK | Parents & Guardians

    (I have just got home from university for the weekend. My mum and I are in the living room making quiet, idle conversation. It’s quite late, and my dad has gone to bed. I’m a bit of a nerd.)

    Me: “So, are you looking forward to the new Star Wars film?”

    Mum: “Y-”

    Dad: *loud, somewhat disembodied yell* “YES! I CAN’T WAIT!”

    Me: *exchanging surprised looks with Mum* “Looks like The Force isn’t the only thing being awakened.”

    Family Love Is In The Air

    | West Sussex, England, UK | Sons & Daughters

    (I am lying in bed with my two-year-old daughter, having a cuddle. I look at her, thinking how much I love her, what a good little girl she is and how adorable she can be.)

    Me: “I love you, [Daughter].”

    (She then looks back at me, raises her bum and back off the bed, and farts. Loudly.)

    Daughter: “I love you, fart.”

    (She takes after her dad.)

    I Tire Of Your Antics

    | USA | Parents & Guardians

    (I am driving with my dad. We are looking to pull over for a break, when we see a car on the side of the road, near our intended exit. My dad is driving, while I’m navigating.)

    Me: “Yeesh, I’d hate to be stuck that close to the road while changing a tire.”

    Dad: “Yeah, that sucks…”

    (The driver comes into view. It’s a young woman, around my age, wearing bright pink, tight-fitting yoga pants. She’s bent over the tire, her pink posterior sticking up in the air.)

    Dad: “Oh! It’s a female! We have to help!” *immediately begins to pull over*

    Me: *entirely bemused as I’ve never seen him act like this*

    (We pull up in front of the car. As I’m on the safe side I get out first.)

    Me: “Hiya! Need help?”

    Driver: “Nope! Just finished. Thanks, though!”

    (She then proceeds to take her equipment and put it away. My dad has just now come over.)

    Me: “S’alright, Dad, she’s finished.”

    Dad: “You sure?”

    Me: *giving him a “You serious?” look* “Yeah, Dad, she’s good. Get in the car and let’s go.”

    (It should also be noted, I’m a female and Dad taught me how to change tires so I wouldn’t be stuck in this situation. He denies it, but I’m pretty sure my sixty-year-old dad just wanted to help out because he saw her a** in yoga pants, especially since I have never seen him leap to help someone so quickly. Still haven’t decided if I should tell Mom yet…)

    I Have A Background In Defunct Websites

    | Newark, DE, USA | Siblings

    (My sister and I are browsing the kids’ section at a retail store. She spots a bright, multi-colored girls’ winter jacket covered in stars, nebulas, and other cosmic designs.)

    Sister: “Wow! That coat looks like somebody’s MySpace background threw up on it.”
