Living with a teenager!
A collection of one liners; the manic musings of a single parent confronted with one of these strange modern phenomena....
Live, and dangerous, I suppose. A selection:
School days are the best days of their lives. So why do they not want to get up to enjoy them?
Look Dad, telling me what time it is will not get me up any earlier.
Dad! School is never going to be open after that storm! Well, yes, it is actually. It’s rainproof, you know.
You know the waking up process has stopped when the music starts
So? What if it does take me ages to wake up? It takes me ages to go to sleep, so that’s a life balance, right?
Dad, wake me up early tomorrow. I need to start revising for a test. When is it? -Tomorrow.
Dad! My phone didn’t charge! How can I possibly go to school when my phone didn’t charge?
Waking up a teenager only produces an inarticulate noise. Where does that come on the evolutionary scale?
Yes, you still go school if you have a cold. Catch up sleep in your free period: and turn Facebook off earlier tonight.
See, Dad, I told you we’d catch the school bus. – Chasing it two miles down the road to the next stop doesn’t count.
Why do they want to blag a day off school when healthy, but go in when they are ill?
Look, I get up at this time every day. We run out of the house, you drive like a lunatic to the bus stop. I catch the bus. I see no problem here.
