Group Prompt #24: Family is Those You Love
Teen: I’m sorry.
Father Figure: What for?
Teen: I’m sorry that you have had to deal with me all this time. I’m so useless.
FF: No you’re not. And you know what? I don’t have to deal with you. I choose to because I care about you.
Teen: Could you be any more annoying?
FF: Excuse me?
Teen: I’m sorry. It’s just… nevermind.
FF: No, please do explain.
Teen: Well, it’s just that the way you’ve been talking to me feels like you’re talking down to me.
FF: As your father, I would never do a thing like that to you. My job is to teach you. I would never belittle you for having to do that.
FF: Can you explain something to me?
Teen: *groans* Why can’t you use youtube like everyone else to learn how to do new stuff?
FF: Young lady, I taught you how to drive a car! I expect the same amount of patience you got while driving when you teach me about electronics.
Teen: Oh, so no patience then?
FF: Can you bring me a beer?
Teen: Only if you let me have a sip.
FF: … don’t tell your parents. They’d kill me.
