When you were growing up, what one rule did you always disagree with? I mean let's be honest...our parents were unreasonable and just mean...OK?...lol But we all had rules and limitations and for the most part it was either for our safety or our own good. But was there one rule your parents enforced that you thought was totally unfair?
I wasn't allowed to date in any way until I was 16. That was fine and I understood. But the silliest thing was NO drive-in movies at all! I mean really? If teenagers were going to park in a car and do 'adult' things, why would they go to a drive-in with other people all around and actually pay for the parking space? It just didn't make any sense to me.
But there was this one goofball who I went on a date with mostly because my parents wanted me to. He was a very distant relative of kids they grew up with. I thought he was yucky...<shudder> but I agreed. He told dad we were going to a movie theater and get something to eat. As soon as we pulled out of the driveway he announced we were going to the drive-in because my parents would never find out anyway. Yes, he knew I was not to go there but didn't care one bit. I didn't tell my parents when I got home but I never talked to or went out with him again and they never asked. See, he was one of dad's students at school and I was afraid if I said something dad would have a fit so I kept quiet. If I knew then what I know now I would soooo have ratted him out! What a creep! And yes, he did try to pull a few 'moves' on me but I made him stay on his side of the car...lol
What rule did your parents have that was unreasonable....at the time?
Play fair. Don't hit people. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
