Don't you just hate it when your parents get drunk? When they start talking rubbish and pulling out your baby photos?
We all feel awesome and like we know it all when we are under the influence of alcohol, so why should it be strange when our parents act this way. I am sure when I get drunk I become boastful, loud and generally obnoxious. Though when you are in that state of intoxication what you doing/saying seems right.
Getting back to my original point. I have been the sober driver for many nights out and when my mates get into their drunken state, the stuff that comes out of their mouth doesn't bother me. I put it all down to the fact that they are drunk. On the other hand though, when my parents get intoxicated the stuff that they say annoys me.
Why do we get frustrated with our parents when they are doing the same thing as us? They put up with our nonsense when we get drunk? Surely everyone is entitle to 'relax' and "let their hair down" once in a while.
Any thoughts on why this is the case?
