Then get off your butt and get it yourself. After, of course, you thank your loving mother for buying groceries, you ungrateful swine
@Mineshack, I had a long day
@ParadoxBacon, dont apologize. Youre damn right!
@ParadoxBacon, Yes, we know it's cool to settle for the minimum amount of work your parents are supposed to put into you, and never ask for anything ever. Single grocery item? Yeah, forget about it.
@Atomic Lance, precisely right. Be grateful you have parents that provide for you and don't demand more. Not everyone is so fortunate
@Captain TR8R, Wrong, we live in a reality where most of us on this app have parents who have the extra cash to treat us every now and then. Obviously be grateful for the bare necessities, but there's nothing wrong with asking for something sometimes. And there's nothing wrong with feeling bad if they don't get that tub of ice cream you asked for.
@Atomic Lance, consumerism at its finest
@R2 LSD2, Are you telling me you live (or lived if you're moved out) in an empty room with nothing but a bed in it, belly half full with bread and water, having gone to school with your one of two choices of outfits... with your parents that most likely have the money to provide more than that?
@Atomic Lance, I actually didn't say a single word you said. Like literally not one. Lol
What I am saying is that you probably live (or did) in a room with a rather large bed, a dresser and closet full of clothes, a gaming system/computer and a personal cell phone, went to bed with a stuffed belly knowing there is extra food for a mid night snack, and went to school with the "latest" backpack/shoe/etc and you have the gall to demand a tub of ice cream and feel bad when it isn't brought to you?
@R2 LSD2, When you claimed consumerism against my argument of "Asking for extra things is okay" I made those assumptions accordingly. I apologize.
Anyway, yes. (Asking, not demanding) for a tub of ice cream is entirely okay, and feeling bad is also okay. And yes, I lived with most of those things. However, I bought almost all of them myself. Whatever was in the pantry was entirely dictated by my parents, and they didn't mind picking me up a few things I asked for. It's called being a not sh!t parent.
@Atomic Lance, then since you bought most of that yourself "then get off your butt and get it yourself". Your parents are required to feed/house/cloth/entertain/raise a functional human in society. That's it. As you said, they didn't mind picking up a few things for you, but they are by no means required to do so. If the ice cream isn't, don't get upset if they don't get it for you.
If your parents got a divorce (*knocks on wood*) or one of them lost their job (*again*) and couldn't to buy excess stuff, would they be sh!t parents for noy getting it for you? Do they really need to give you stuff to be good parents?
@R2 LSD2, All fair, but yeah, obviously there are exceptions to my last statement (which was admittedly pretty harsh) but c'mon, you got all this stuff for your kid, you can get him/her a friggin ice cream tub
@Atomic Lance, I mean, from a practical stand point you are correct. I'm just saying that that is the say kind of logic kids having tantrums in grocery stores have. And that if parents don't bring home ice cream they aren't bad parents or love you any less. It just means that if the Apache helicopter breaks up with you, you'll need to find a new comfort food.
@R2 LSD2, Then yes, I see your point. Good talk :)
@Atomic Lance, yeah good talk :) FP is getting better at this haha
@Atomic Lance, and just to be clear, i meant that asking out expecting for more isn't wrong, but passive aggressively punishing them for forgetting one thing amongst all the necessities they were buying is just plain rude. Sorry about that
@ParadoxBacon, You're cool c:
@ParadoxBacon, (Gets off butt, gets into car)
Wait, I don't have my license, yikes....
@R2 LSD2, what does knocking on wood mean?
(it's not a phallic joke, is it?)
I hate when my mom forgets to bring home the weed
It sucks when mom forgets the Jussipussi
Related (kinda): One time my brother and I were out shopping with my mom and grandma. We stopped at a grocery store and my bro and I were tired, my mom and grandma went into the store. They said all they needed was sour cream. 2 hours later they come back with two cart fulls of stuff and, I shjt you not, FORGOT THE SOUR CREAM!
Comon mom you know I need the extra small condoms!
