  • First day as nightshift supervisor the new guy burned himself with a heat gun 4 times and I used my dad's favorite line "do you ever use your head for something other then parting your ears"

  • a few days back, when my brother came home i told him to do his homework but he told me that his tutor was coming and that he wanted to do it then so she could help him. so i said okay but when it was almost 5 o clock i texted my mom because she never comes later than 4:45 and asked if his tutor was coming and she said no, i just thought to myself sneaky son of a bitch and i screamed across the house at him to get his homework out and that he had better start on it now. i was pissed at him trying to get away with not doing his homework but i am shocked my mom did not care that he had lied to me about his homework

  • I am in fact radically different from my parents. However it's always interesting when you realize the inspiration for some of the advice they give you. As you grow older it seem like thier favorite quotes become more meaningful as you qualify them perhaps. My father always told me to never fight fire with fire. At first it seems idiotic especially as a young child for two intangible forces to attack one another. However now it makes so much sense. Fire is a symbol for the irrational mindset that takes root in anger, so then if you if you attack with the same mindset nothing is being done to mitigate the situation. It's only you step back and maintain composure that you can properly handle a situation.

  • Last week my little brother (age 9) was telling be about some boy at school punching his female friend.

    The way I was telling him to not worrying about getting in trouble if this kid tries to punk him or his friend, showing him how to throw a punch by a little sparring session... similar to what my dad would do.

  • When i went to italy, for the first time in 9 years, they kept comparing me to my father
    Supposedly we cut our steak/food the same way, smiled the same way, laighed the same way, we even slept the same way! lol! well at least thats what they told me, they even said i had a way with the ladies like my dad, very serious at first and then overly romantic lol!

    i realized then that i was so similar to my father.
    although he looked completely different lol

  • I've never had that moment and I'm very sure I never will since me and my mother we are polar opposites, we literally could not be more different, I can't imagine having anything in common with her.

  • I don't know, my mom tells me I'm very similar to her, and that I'll probably get married at 23 like here. Physically I'm a darker version of my mama and people constantly tell me I look like her. In terms of personality I inherited a lot from both of my parents and from my grandmother.

  • I have tried my entire life to not be like my mom. Or like my dad. I guess the only commonalities i have with them are my language abilities (from my mom) and my love for books and waiting (from my dad)
