To those of you living with your parents... (in Off-topic)


good ol]Newmcyo May 4 2006 7:11 PM EDT

The following is a conversation I had with my mothe two nights ago. It was about 3:22AM. I was listening to Disturbed on my DVD Player/TV.
Keep in mind my room is right next to the bathroom and we have paper-thin walls in my house. But my mom's room is halfway across the house...
My mother opens the door and the conversation Goes as follows:

Mom: Turn that [stuff] down!

Me: Its not loud at all, I'm 4 feet from it and can barely hear it...

Mom: I don't care either turn that [music] down, or turn it off!!! It just woke me up!!!

Me: I doubt that. You got up to go to the bathroom, didn't you? You know good and well that you can hear ANYTHING in my room from the bathroom. But I guarantee if you close my door and take 3 steps away from it, you won't hear anything...


The conversation ended at this point when she slammed the door and stormed off. About 2 minutes later, my room went black and silent. The circuit breake is in her room and she had turned off my power.

The moral to this story:

Your parents may be wrong at times. But you are DEAD WRONG if you point it out to them :-)

Real moral of the story: invest in headphones.

Can't say that ever happened to me, when I still lived at home. It was actually pretty common for my father to tell me to turn my music up!

Yeah, my parents are cool.

Dudley Dotson May 4 2006 7:38 PM EDT

Bah I don't listen to music

The other moral to this story:

Don't tick off the people who own the house. ^_^

Moral of the story: If you are old enough to be arguing music with your mother at 3 a.m., you are old enough to be living elsewhere. :P

How about you maybe..... pay some respect to your mother who raised you and turn your music down a little for her sake.

This has happend many many times to me. My dad always say to turn down the radio or the tv to me and my mom. Even when we can barely hear it. Then other times he plays his music extremly loud so we can't even hear each other talk.

The moral to this story:

when living at home with your parents, mind their rules and not just your own...

Phrede May 5 2006 2:07 AM EDT

I had a similar situation (many) years ago when living at home. I just argued that would she prefer me to be taking drugs or listening to Hendrix and Floyd.

She went out the next day and scored for me.

Only kidding. I do not condone the taking of any form of drug.
Apart from caffeine and alcohol (in moderation of course)

The thought of living with my parents again terrifies me. I moved out nearly 20 years ago and never looked back. I got on so much better with my Mum when we didn't have to share the same living premises!

Dudley Dotson May 5 2006 1:12 PM EDT

Wow don't your parents miss you?

babbler May 5 2006 1:44 PM EDT

Scary moral:

Laugh at the supposed idiocy of your parents now. In 20 years(hopefully not 5) you will stop when you realize you are just like them!

/my 6 month old wont turn her music down when I holler from my room either O_o

Dudley Dotson May 5 2006 1:45 PM EDT

O_o spells for bad future :P

Next time, turn it down. When you hear your mum go back to bed, turn it up again. Simple. Your happy. Your mums happy. And she doesn't flip the switch.

YOU May 5 2006 3:02 PM EDT

MOMMA ALWAYS RIGHT

Heh, pretty much what I was thinking, but that would be making a compromise. And as a teenager, that is just not allowed! lol

I have been out of my parents house for nearly 5 years now and I couldn't imagine moving back... But once your gone and do go back to visit, you realize just how much your parents actually tolerated while watching your siblings ^_^
