To my parents, it's just terrible to accept and its somewhat fairly unfair. (reddit.com)
Look, I know I deserve this, but I just want to be selfish for myself every once in a while. I'm exhausted of being perfectly kind. I'm the chocolate thief in the house. Whenever my parents has brought a large bar for desserts, I take a piece from the fridge and they're like, "Yep, they did it." Today, dad ticked me off, saying the box was empty of any Toblerone and guffaws like he was undeniably correct but I swear I didn't finish them all, and return to prove a few measly ones still deep in the triangular box, and walk off muttering about how unfair that was to humiliatingly assume me of being a pig (since they know I still leave some behind, which is why this particular time got me real pissed.) They've heard me, and now they say that's disrespectful to the nth degree, like, raised and angry voices from their deplorable joyous voice within a second. I say "but dad started it" and they say "don't talk to me like I'm your brother" in stride and rambles off with how ungrateful I was. I kind of get that these days, where are moods would be always so opposite of each other. Anyway, I didn't answer back, just saying "Yeah, yeah..." then our mood improved. Then he told me to paint a part of our new wall. I genuinely ask where should I paint, and he still commands me like he didn't hear what I said. I ask two more times but his gaze was off and he still thinks he can't hear me when we were in the same room? Despite mom and my bro talking at the time as well, he would never miss that. Seeing as nothing is happening, I did what he commanded, get the paint brush, then sat near, pissed once more. Than he repeated something from the TV, saying "5 hours only!" (About a place they were gonna visit), and I repeated him with a mocking voice. Oh, now he hears me? And now he grounds me from using the computer for, not one day, but one week. Along with my phone, although I know he wouldn't do that for some reason. He drones how when he comes back from work from night shift at 5am, I sit at at the computer (which, mind him, I simultaneously balance chores with). When he wakes up to leave for work at around 8pm, my ass is still on the computer. Where does he expect me to be, then? I work my ass off cooking rice, eggs or any other breakfast food available for my siblings since the start of the school year since my morning sched forces me to wake up earlier than anyone around the house, I make sure to assist with all the chores and volunteer to help mom insteas of letting her do things herself, and he has the nerve to say his exact words as if I'm a lazy good for nothing? I'm an excellent performing student, mind him, I do more stuff than my big bro actually as well. Yeah, I have an attitude, but I get whatever crap he demansa? Oh, my problem is only grounded for a week, oh, he's a rebellious teen. I get it. I think about it. I'm in a much more pensive state as of current, and it helps if to know that... things are still very difficult to accept, but currently also a bit less one-sided in views. I might miss a few details, as all of these previous words have been typed on my phone in a fit of rage and detailed just how I remember them as fast as I type them. I'm currently shut in the bedroom like the loser I am, but I just need to vent hard. Some points, like comparing my brothers work to mine, is unfair, but I'll still leave whatever felt to me thatjustifies things I did, even though it doesn't. Rebelling takes a serious hit on your thinking, huh. Anyway, glad I vented this all out. Good evening to you all. It'll be a week, or just until Monday when mom talks some sense into him. Mom knows how to console everyone, this wouldn't be the first time, well, actually the first time dad did something like this, but mom is always so caring. TL;DR A falling-out between my dad and I, and for me borne of unfairness, led to a week-long ground. May deserve it, but still. Week-long grounded from using gadgets. Not cool. Edit: oh, I was really only finding a subreddit to vent, but felt like this wasn't a rant after posting. Y'know, a rant about a famous topic, as I've seen some on this subreddit? I shall put this down if ever, like ignore this. submitted by /u/FrostMagus [link] [comments]
