39. Joke’s on you
Parents know their children better than anyone else, and so it’s no wonder that this mother knew exactly how to get her child’s attention. Her kid found it to be cruel, but we acknowledge she simply did what she had to – desperate times call for desperate means.
This is another reason why kids might be bothered by having their parents use smartphones and texting – it’s another way for them to give them chores. If you think about it, though, it’s a pretty useful tool to give orders, and so I don’t see parents giving this up any time soon.
