Unnecessary comments

parents drive you upset on unnecessary comments

It doesn’t matter where you parents were born and raised cause all parents drive you insane. They speak one universal language and that is the language of guilt trips no matter what you do how good you have been the whole day. Your mother just can not end a sentence with an unnecessary comment.

For instance:

Me: Mama I’m going at Mahnoor’s funeral

Mom: I know your friends are more important than me (seriously MAA)

Me: I’m so tired I’m going straight to bed, I have had the longest day..

Mom: I know this home is like a hotel for you anyway

And then THE TYPICAL I’M GOING TO DIE REALLY SOON

Airport rush

parents drive you upset when they take complete family on airport

If any of your 3rd 4th cousin is coming from abroad your parents will make sure that they take the whole family to the airport cause why not and then they will force you to interact with them. If their flight is at 8 am then your parents will reach the airport around 6 am cause just in case they would be late and if you are going somewhere with your parents they will ask you to print the ticket. No matter how many times you will tell them that it is totally fine if you do not print the ticket they just would not understand they would consider it a heinous crime and think that they would be sent back if they wont have the ticket printed in their hand. Parents will drive you insane. LOL !

Technology

Our parents had their childhood without technology so its new for them and also it is hard they would ask you teach them how to forward A GOOD MORNING MESSAGE  and why aunty Saima is not replying to them when in reality she has blocked them so it is hard for you to explain it to them this would cause chaos in the family like how SAIMA blocked your mum on WhatsApp, who does she think she is, Queen of Liyari? They refuse the capabilities of technology. They would not use GPS cause they think it will take you to wrong way and it will take way more time.

Cooking obsession

Moms are obsessed with cooking and now you guys must be thinking that I am being a spoiled brat. Complaining about my mom feeding me all the time but guys chill, too much of everything is bad. My mom will harass me to the point where she wont care if I’m on a business call, zoom meeting or on a diet she would just want to feed me all the time..

Video call

The whole experience with your parents is like a spinner. They would rotate their screen and then complain that you are holding the phone in the wrong direction and at times you would only see their cute little double chin and that’s it. The whole video call would be you just talking to your parent’s chin.

Torona Pirus break

parents drive you insane during lockdown work from home

It’s not a vacation MOM. I kid you not once I say that any of my mother’s friends who have called her she has told them that “Mahnoor got a holiday”. Being within the middle of a skype meeting when my mum comes up to me and says help me in the kitchen. I check out her all confused and ask her “What?”. She aggressively says “Shabash utho and Help me”. Then I ended up saying that I’m within the middle of working. I can’t help her immediately, therefore the emotional mother says: “What’s this shitty holiday if you continue to need to work?”. For the love of God, someone needs to tell her that it is not a holiday. Parents at times really drive you insane.

NEVERTHELESS, ALL PARENTS ARE AWESOME AND THEY DO A LOT FOR US. HOPE THEY NEVER DIE CAUSE THE LOSS OF ANY ONE OF THEM IS UNBEARABLE. NO MATTER HOW ANNOYING THEY ARE YOU GUYS WERE 10 TIMES MORE ANNOYING IN YOUR CHILDHOOD. THEY LEGIT TAUGHT YOU HOW TO POOP PROPERLY, SO CHILL.
