Humour: The Struggle of an African Child

Hey, everyone! 


Today's post is about disrespecting parents, taken from a blog I did last year, as a challenge.

Now, I am African. I have African parents. Nope! not African-American/British.....AFRICAN. PURE BRED 110% AFRICAN PARENTS. 



I know this topic is about disrespecting parents, but I thought I'd change it up a little, and talk about the struggle, we African children face on a daily basis. 




And I'm sure all parents from all over the world do some of these things :) 




Note: This is purely jokes :) 





1) LECTURES 



Kid: Mom, can I have a sandwich? 

Mom: You are asking me for a sandwich? 
Kid: uhhh. Ya.
Mom: Heeh! *claps once* This child! You know, life is hard. When I was your age, sandwich was a luxury, I had to walk 4km to school everyday, and we'd eat beans.



HOW do the simplest  requests turn into lectures about life? I don't know. But they just do. And they always have to mention how far they walked to school.

2) CHORES 


If two hours pass without doing a chore. Prepare to be called lazy.. 



Meanwhile:

3) OVER-PACKING WHEN TRAVELLING




You should see what my mom makes me pack when I'm going on a 2-night school trip. 


Our Last Trip 

4) SCHOOL 

Don't even get me started on this! Why is it that they were always the smartest in class? They always got top grades? 

Kid: Mom, I got 97% in my test
African Parent: What happened to the other 3?  When I was in school, heeee! I was top of the class! I'd get A's in all my subjects. 100 PECENT! 

Really?.....Really?



5) GETTING IN TROUBLE: 

Parent: Why didn't you do the dishes? 
Kid: -
Parent: Answer me! 
Kid: Because-
Parent: Don't talk back at me! 

 And you're just like...




6) WE AIN'T GOING NOWHERE IF THE HOUSE ISN'T CLEAN



7) DADS 



8) MOTHERS ON THE PHONE 

Why do they have to yell like the phone's in the other room?



9) YOUR CAREER

Parents: Study hard, do what you love!
Kid: I want to become a singer or a dancer.
Parent: *stares at you*




10) DATING 

Rules: 
  • No dating till you're done with school and you have a secure job as a doctor/lawyer.
  • Be married by age 25. 


See, most people finish school at 22/23...Maybe get a job at 24, which leaves 1 year, if  you're lucky....





Now who's with me on this? 
Like I said, this is purely JOKES, and obviously some things are over-exaggerated. I'm blessed to have such awesome parents, and I wouldn't trade them for the world! 


Peace and Love.
