    Who Are These Kids?


    Inconsiderate Of Your Consideration

    | BC, Canada |

    (My mother, my father, and I are going out to see a popular film in the theatres. My father enters the door first, followed by me and my mother.)

    Dad: *looks at me angrily when we get inside*

    Me: “What?”

    Dad: “You should have held the door open for your mother!”

    (I’ve had a problem with this in the past and he’s right to be ticked off.)

    Me: “Sorry, Dad.”

    Dad: “You need to be considerate of other people!”

    (The movie is very popular and the theatre is busy. It is so busy that they are doing reserved seating, and there’s only one block of seats left: a group of five, in which we can all sit together.)

    Cashier: “Would you like the middle three of the five?”

    Me: “No, thanks. We’ll take the three that are closest to the center of the row.”

    (After we’ve paid for our tickets…)

    Mom: “Why’d you pick those particular seats?”

    Me: “Since the theatre is so busy, we should make sure there’s another group of two seats, so that a couple can sit together.”

    Dad: “Why go to that effort? I don’t care about other people!”

    Mom In The Hood

    | Australia | Parents & Guardians

    (I am a gamer. I live in a very small unit with my mum. We can only fit a TV in the living room.  The living room is connected to our kitchen and dining area. Often when I’m playing games she’ll being doing something nearby. As I learn, she takes in more than I initially thought.)

    Mum: *walks in wearing a hoodie with the hood up*

    Me: “Why have you got your hood up?”

    Mum: “I’m just cold; I’m not trying to look like Alex Mercer.”

    Me: “Did… did you just reference Prototype?”

    Mum: *surprised* “I pay attention to all this. I could’ve referenced Ezio but I’m kind of sick of watching you play Assassin’s Creed.”

    Me: “Mum, I’m so proud!”

    Mum: “I know how to make my daughter happy!”

    (She does. I was beaming for the rest of the day and we still talk a lot about games!)

    Good Moms

    This Isn’t Going To Be A Piece Of Cake

    | Jacksonville, FL, USA | Siblings

    (My older sister has called me for my birthday. I’m not a big birthday person, so she is trying to get me to tell her what I want for my birthday.)

    Sister: “Oh, come on! You have to want something.”

    Me: “The only thing I want is cake, and I’ve already bought the stuff to make it.”

    Sister: “Ooh! I know an awesome bakery that delivers! I’ll get you something!”

    Me: “I’m making my own. You don’t need to buy anything.”

    Sister: “I’m buying something whether you like it or not. They make yummy red velvet cake. I’ll get you that.”

    Me: “No, don—”

    Sister: “Stop being cranky! Red velvet is delicious.”

    Me: “You mean the red velvet cake with the red dye that I’m allergic to, or the red velvet cake with the cream cheese icing that I can’t have because I’m lactose intolerant?”

    Sister: “… Right. I don’t know how I keep forgetting that.”
