    Thanks For Nothing

    | OH, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (My mom and I are leaving a store and are on our way to my cousin’s baby shower. We are almost to the car when this happened:)

    Mom: “Thank you.”

    Me: “You’re welcome.” *realizing that I hadn’t done or said anything to prompt a thank you* “Umm… what are you welcome for?”

    Mom: “I don’t know. I was hoping you weren’t going to ask.”

    (We couldn’t leave for another five minutes because we were laughing too hard.)

    Trying To Make A Belieber Out Of You

    | IA, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (I am not a fan of Justin Bieber. Quite the opposite, in fact. I will make a point to actively ignore the music if a public place has one of his songs on, and am just very against him as a person in general. I’m in a store with my dad when ‘Baby’ comes on, but I don’t recognize the intro, so I subtly dance to it while walking.)

    Dad: “You do realize this is Justin Bieber, right?”

    Me: *stops dancing immediately* “OH, MY GOD I THOUGHT IT WAS TAYLOR SWIFT!”

    This Prank Is Pregnant With Potential

    | MI, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (I’m shopping with my mother. She sees a shirt she thinks I’d like.)

    Me: “Yuck! That style always makes me look pregnant.”

    Mom: “I’ll buy it for you if you promise to wear it next time you see [Boyfriend]’s mom!”

    1992 Called, They Want Their Phone Back

    | CA, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (I am out shopping with my mom at a popular store.)

    Mom: “I need an old fashioned phone cord.”

    Me: “Old fashioned?”

    Mom: “Yeah, like for a landline. I may have to go to [Popular Electronics Store], though.”

    Me: “Yeah… or 1992.”

    A Formula For Realization

    | Germany | Siblings

    (My sister and I are at the store buying a few things. Note that she is not interested in children and therefore doesn’t know anything about them. We pass the baby food aisle and I notice she looks really confused.)

    Me: “Hey, what’s so confusing?”

    Sister: “It’s just… I never realized there were THAT many different brands and types of baby food and formula.”

    Me: “Oh, yeah. There’s quite a lot.”

    (As we walk away…)

    Sister: “I now realize how men must feel in the feminine products aisle.”

    Didn’t Know You Were Trouble When You Walked In

    | VA, USA | Children, Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (My little sister and I are at the store. A woman comes up to us and starts talking to my little sister.)

    Woman: “Hi there! What’s your name?”

    Sister: “My Mommy calls me ‘Trouble!'”
