Sarcastic Parents
Posted 9/18/11
Is it really needed? Come on now.

Do you think when your parents have a sarcastic tone out of nowhere with you that they are being immature?

This thread is the best thread ever. This sincerely needs a freakin' medal! IM TOTALLY FOR REALLZZZZZZ.

To answer your question, I must agree with you. Then again, I'm probably the more sarcastic one compared to my dad.

Sarcastic old fart is my dad's third name, but I usually laugh when he's being sarcastic though. It's funny how parents are sarcastic because that humor is awesome.

Bring this question up again 25 years from now after you've raised your own kids a few years. If that's too long a trial period for the learning curve to set in go out and sign up with the local contractor in your area that shuttles grade school kids from their homes to school and return. Insist on busing the middle-school kids, not the elementary ones who are easy to train or the high school kids who have other concerns on their mind besides tormenting the driver once their butts clear the bus doors for the ride. If you remain stern and authoritarian, set and maintain the boundaries you expect chances are you and your psyche will survive the first year and many more should your threshhold for pain be set very high.

Now, juxtaposition your feelings, musings, trepidations, worry from the experience you gained handling all the mini-dramas, psuedo in-fighting, disrespect, ignorance while doing this with the added responsibility of juggling time-management between life career choice, monthly house and car payments, child rearing, food budget, spouse maintenance (believe me, either gender is high maintenance in a nuclear family setting), social and societal demands. Maybe the diety or God can meet a 19-year old's expectations 100% of the time but I sincerely doubt any human living on this planet can.

I suggest you forgive them and give 'em another chance. They'll come around eventually.

Both of my parents can be sarcastic occasionally, and my grandmother is almost always sarcastic, but I like it. I don't think it's a sign of immaturity, it's just a character trait.
