Annoying things your parents do

Let’s not get too heavy eh?

My dad insists on sending me emails for things that should be texts messages e.g I just received ‘what time do you want me there on Thursday’ in the title of an email with nothing in the body. I’ll get a new email for every message. He has unlimited texts :woman_shrugging:

My mum doesn’t split long things up on Messenger, she’ll spend ages composing long blocks of text.

Also: her iPad has the keyboard tones switched on

Urghhh. When I’m on site I share an office with other people That do the same job as me from other companies. They literally all have their phone and laptop key/alert tones on. :tired_face:

Moved too far away.

I do a lot of passive aggressive staring

My stepdad often tweets known bands with something like “I love your music p.s. do you know my stepson’s band…”. I would ask him to stop but I suppose it’s kind of sweet, if very annoying.

That’s awesome and cringey at the same time :smiley:

Every time I search my band name on Twitter I’m 90% mortified and 10% disappointed

Have any of them ever heard of you?

Mum tends to ask a question then interrupt you with something completely unrelated when you’re in the middle of answering it. Reckon I’d find her the most difficult person in the world to communicate with if I didn’t grow up with it.

Doesn’t look like it - one certain mouthy band member did reply, but only to call him a slab.
