    I have great parents who I love. They've both been through (and continue to go through) some stressful shit and deal with it well. But it seems like all parents have quirks or preferences that their kids just DO NOT identify with... and I'm sure I do (or will one day) too.

    What weird/crazy shit do your parents do or think, that you'll never get?



    ...and if your answer is "my mom/dad is dead", my response is "Guess that's why she/he didn't move around much!" :c

    My dad has a "let it mellow" policy regarding toilet-flushing.
    (I do not abide by it when I'm there and I tell my daughter she doesn't have to either.)

    He refuses to purchase a cell phone or air condition the house because he didn't have those things when he was growing up, so they're not necessary.

    Because of the lack of A/C he often wears nothing but a towel around his waist in the Summer. Even if his live-in daughter/her friends are there.

    He'll come in and bitch at you if you sleep past 10am "you gonna sleep all day??!"

    My mom won't drive in cities or on the turnpike, and turns the radio off in any kind of traffic.

    She is super religious and believes that addiction occurs because the devil is literally living in hard drugs/the addict's body after taking the drugs.

    She's extremely cavalier about nudity (with her daughters anyway)... I've seen her 100% naked multiple times in the last 2 years when it could have been easily avoided. She'll even open the bathroom door to talk to me while she's pooping and say "It's ok, I don't mind" (but I do!!!).

    She washes and reuses plastic utensils and has a stash of twist-ties from bread bags as well as rubber bands from veggies, etc that she also saves. The piles just keep growing. Why do you need all those twist-ties? You get a new one with every loaf of bread!!

    She also brings creamer and condiment packets home from diners and fast food restaurants.

    My folks were both Jesus freaks growing up. They've both mellowed out though since divorcing after 43 years. I'm pretty sure my pap is trying to get all the pussy he can before he takes a dirt nap.

    We might have went to the same church. Were there any white people there?

    See mine are the opposite. They made us go to church and shit as kids, but were still laid-back about it. They'd drink beer and listen to rock n' roll.

    But over the last couple years, my mom particularly has started taking that shit waaaay literally and has gotten super up-tight. She'll try to read me scripture when she knows I'm feeling down. It seems like she only does church-related activities/hangs out with people from church/listens to preaching CDs or gospel music.
    She bitched at my dad for wanting to join the local fire house. And I'm certain she'd divorce him if she ever found out that he looked at porn.
