'Get a better job': Terrible mother borrows car from son and shames him when he wants to drive it to work

The support of your parents can be extremely determinant of your own success—the trade-off being that their support in raising you out of diapers will be repaid when they return to them. It's a fair trade—when the parents uphold their end of the deal and aren't depraved and selfish narcissists—or otherwise toxic and destructive to be around. Now, we're all complicated people, and none of us are without our flaws, but some people are better off far away… and out of your life. Take this delightfu…

'He looked at me with shock ': Jerk father-to-be gets owned by his own father after giving silent treatment to his wife over the gender of their child

It's ok to have feelings; they're only natural and not something that we can always control. Still, it's not ok for you to take those feelings out on other innocent people in your life who have done nothing wrong to cause the situation. That's the mistake that this father-to-be made when he decided to take out his “gender disappointment” on his pregnant wife. The two had been expecting their first child, but upon learning that the child was to be a girl, the father-to-be began giving his wife t…

"Dramatic" nanny quits after insane parent demands they come into work after being hit by a car

Caring for other people's kids can be an enticing career for those who like working with children; the only downside is that—well— they're other people's children. This means that you have to deal with the often inaccurate perceptions of other adults, who hold tight to their wildly inaccurate beliefs, with these same adults also holding the final say over what goes with their children, no matter how damaging their decision might be. When working as a nanny, these problems intensify. Long and of…

'My son is clearly resenting us': Parents give one child $4k for Christmas and give the other $800, wonder if they're wrong

The sibling relationship may be one of the most complex: two individuals who have interacted and competed throughout the entire duration of their challenging developmental years. These years of ever-shifting emotional conflict can foster incredibly strong, near-unbreakable bonds; or can form two individuals who can't stand to be in the same room as one another. Jealousy is one of the main contributors to the latter result; oftentimes, one sibling may begin to feel resentment toward their family…

'Why do I have to go?': Deadbeat dad-to-be skips pregnant wife's doctor's appointment for Fish n' Chips with the boys

I love Fish ‘n’ Chips. They're one of the main pillars of that make a continued existence on this planet worth it. There's nothing quite like a juicy flakey fillet battered in golden breading and deep-fried to succulent perfection. Serve that up with your choice of sauce and a side of chips, and you're talking some serious joy in edible form. Without Fish ‘n’ Chips, where would we be as a society?.. I'd rather not know the answer. Well, this deadbeat dad-to-be clearly shares the same passion fo…

This couple hired me, a complete stranger, to watch their kid for a date night. Now they’ve practically abandoned me with their kid. What do I even fucking do? I need to get paid and I also can’t leave their child home alone. They are just ignoring my message. Put DND on after I texted them.

Parents ditch babysitter with kids and put them on "do not disturb"

Parenting is exhausting; at its worst, it's like a marathon that you run uphill for 18 years with no water stations and no end in sight. That's why it's a godsend when you can find someone (whether a bribed family member or paid caretaker) who can take your child off you for a few hours. Of course, for some parents, this whole time is spent worrying whether or not the child is alright and being adequately cared for — others still might be able to enjoy their time but be relieved when they retur…
