Sarcastic Parents

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.



I already knew some parent would post on this thread saying "Oh, wait till this happens to you and this and that."

But listen here, there are many ways to be sarcastic, some is to be funny, getting on someones nerves, annoying them, or being completely rude.

Yeah I have never brought it up before, i don't care if they are sarcastic. Put yourself in someone else's point of view then. What about a father that does nothing but sit on his ass since he has a alcohol problem and was laid off from work because of it?
I don't see the point of being nasty to people around that are cheerful and loving to you everyday.
Hes just a cranky old man. To be honest.

Don't tell me to lay off my emotions because you feel sorry for the parents. Don't feel sorry for anyone until you actually know what your talking about.

You think that I don't know what i'm talking about because I am just some 19 year old girl writing a forum because you probably think I was pissed off and not forgiving them. I wrote it for other reasons, maybe for just a new topic on the forums, maybe it was because i was bored, maybe i just wanted to know what others thought of it.

Anyway thanks for that weird response. Lol I feel like I just read about your life.

I had a neurotic parent. Not sarcastic. Those were the days.

We'd go shopping and my twin and I would run around the trolley then my mum would go wham and slam it into our feet. We'd get hit by her then she'd say, 'Who hit you?' She'd say, 'Hey pay attention to your mum.' Id' say, 'I'm doing my homework.' She'd get up and rip my books.

Oh the nostalgia.

A part of the issue might be that you have a rather "strong" image of what an adult it. Plenty of adults are more childish than you think. Think of the ways you like joking with your friends. Are you suddenly going to disrupt your favorite mode of humor because you need to act like an adult? The average response is "no". That's why you can find adults laughing at fart jokes.

I admit, it was a bit emotionally distressing a decade ago when I chose being mature over living out my childhood, only to realize I was vastly more mature than many so-called adults. They have nothing to regret as they enjoy themselves; a child is easily amused after all. So it is actually pretty socially ideal for an adult to remain immature.

Some of them just talk too much. I'm surprised my dad still hasn't knocked out my mom yet. Life is a bitch until you marry one.

My Mum is never sarcastic nor is my Dad.


I am pretty sure that you will be one hell of a sarcastic dad one day.
Now that's sarcasm.

I didn't grow up with my parents, but the rest of my family mainly 'spoke' in monosyllabic grunts.

"Oh, yes. Watching more of your "Pornime" shows, I see. Those japs really know how to reel in the nerds, don't they?"

"What? You say they're cartoons, not porn? I'm sorry, I couldn't tell the difference. I was far too distracted by the voluptuous bouncing breasts. Carry on, son. I won't mention this to your mother. Of course, I'm going to need you to run down to town and get me a pack of tobacco, as should be expected. Mm-hmm, I'll supply the money, don't worry. And no, you can't use the truck. Yes, yes, I understand that the car has a broken window, but it's not THAT cold out there. So what if it's raining? Use an umbrella!"

I am an otona and i am falling in that category sometimes....of sarcastic adults

so i could say its because they think they know everything and that they are right , its a pride thing...and then you think others are dum or clueless or wrong.

At times you are right but

one has to watch what and how you say stuff or else you will hurt the people around you especially the one you love the most. And denial is one of the negative trait in it.

I advice the young ones to voice record your parents sarcasm and let them listen to how they talk, and tell them that they are hurting you deeply.They have to realize what they are really doing.

If that doesnt work , hang in there until you are an not a minor anymore.

Life is a challenge.
