    Eyes Wide Shut

    | Porterville, CA, USA | Children, Sons & Daughters

    (One time when my sisters and I were younger we were in our bedroom listening to the radio while it was raining outside. The rain turns into a storm and all of a sudden the radio stops and all the power goes out. My youngest sister jumps up and runs down the hallway screaming.)

    Sister: “DADDY, HELP ME! I CAN’T SEE!”

    Dad: “Well, open your eyes, then!”

    (My sister had run down the hallway with her eyes closed!)

    Mom Gets Very Animated About It

    | England, UK | Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (My brother and I enjoy watching anime and we are currently watching a film that is most definitely not aimed at children. Our mom doesn’t understand; she sees animation and just assumes it must be meant for children.)

    Mom: “I just don’t get why our children are still into kiddie stuff.”

    Me: “It’s not kiddie stuff!”

    Mom: “You would never have seen me sitting there watching cartoons when I was your age.”

    Brother: “Yesterday you were watching Shaun the Sheep!”

    Grandma Will Be Pet Peeved

    | Easton, PA, USA | Siblings

    (My sister is helping me search for a job on several Internet classified sites.)

    Sister: “Okay, so what kind of job should we look for?”

    Me: “How about a pet store? I like animals.”

    Sister: “Okay, let me try the keyword ‘pets’…”

    (After a moment, she bursts out laughing.)

    Me: “What’s so funny?”

    Sister: “Come and look at some of the results!”

    (Only about half of them were pet related. The other half were looking for positions in nursing homes.)

    Me: “If I had known old people were now considered pets, I would have just started a grandma walking service!”

    Dad Is A-meusli’d

    | Tulalip, WA, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (My dad had just gone shopping and was explaining to my mom what all he got:)

    Dad: “And I got some granola. You should like it; it’s got… crap in it and stuff.”

    Being Complete TV Nazis

    | Allentown, PA, USA | Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (It’s 1999 and my sister and I are seven and nine respectively. My dad just got the video game, ‘Medal of Honor,’ and really wants to play it, but my sister and I are hogging the TV.)

    Dad: “Come on, you have to let me play now! If I don’t, the Nazis will kill everybody!”

    Me: “Nice try, Dad, but it’s a video game! It doesn’t work when you don’t play it!”

    Sister: “Yeah, Daddy! Everyone knows that Nazis aren’t real!”

    (The best part? We were hogging the TV to watch a VHS collection of World War II-era Looney Tunes cartoons.)

    Wear Your Air

    | OH, USA | Grandchildren

    (My four-year-old grandson and I are playing a game when I belched rather loudly. My grandson just stared at me for a moment, and then took a step back.)

    Grandson: “I stepped back so none of the burp got on me.”

    (He then looked all around him and checked out his clothing.)

    Grandson: “Yeah. It missed me.”
