We have to admit, these interactions are downright entertaining and thanks to this community, we have a a treasure trove of comedy gold that any parent can either relate to or learn from as you can see below.

JoNo: I don’t understand how a parent isn’t at the school or on the phone to the school the very next day after their child arrived home without their glasses. They may well think “the glasses could be anywhere and we’ll never find them” but it would be worth a try, surely?

Dumb teenager: Can I just say that once it gets to a certain age this crosses the boundary from secure peranting to just plain creepy. I’ve still got this $hit hooked up to one of my google accounts! I’m 17 for fu(ks sake! I’m legally old enough to have sex, quit school and drive independently and yet my perants still think they need to moniter every image, word and video that crosses my screen online. Good thing they don’t know about guest mode…

lenka (edited): We called the police when my little brother, then aged 5, went missing. He went upstairs to go to bed. Mum went up to tuck him in and turn the light off about 15 minutes later and he was gone. 5 hour police search covering several km radius from our house. Found him when the sniffer dogs were called in. He had pulled the mattress ever so slightly from the wall, slotted himself in the gap and pulled the blanket over the top of himself and gone to sleep. Legit looked like an empty made bed.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
