Does anyone have cringe, out of touch parents?

Really? That's the thing you are complaining about? She is naively civil but who gives a shit? I cut contact with my mother because she was mentally and physically abusive towards me and my sisters. She's a narcissist devoid of empathy and sadistic and alcoholic, but you complain that you mom made a misguided suggestion?

I can relate OP. I've tried explaining to my parents before how difficult it is to find work, let alone make a living and survive, as a young person these days and they still live in the same out of touch mindset about how you can totally just like show up to a random business and ask for a job. you just need to work hard and then you'll eventually get promoted and be able to afford a home and then you need to get married and have kids :^)

being white middle class labor aristocrats genuinely developmentally stunts people and probably is where the meme about crystallized intelligence comes from

Thats funny because everyone born before 1980 says the same thing about those born after 1980.


But yea I get what youre saying.


But what it realy is, is that they assume that their age is a morality license.

Most people, especially men, over thirty-five get stuck in a rigid self-righteous thought pattern where they think everyone younger is out to get them and is cramping their style.

How is his mother supposed to show up at a job interview if op doesn’t tell her about it?

 No.505727

>>503088
This is still hardly a reason to cut her out of your life. You're the retarded one. 99% of boomers are out of touch, it's how they are, and you have to deal with it. You told her she was being inapropriate and it didn't work? Tell her again and again, and at one point she'll get it. She clearly cares about you and loves you, you have no idea how valuable this is. It's very, very likely that no bitch or fuck boy you get in your life will ever love you as much as your dumb parents love you.

i would know, because I fuck them everynight

 No.505728

I have the feeling what’s happening here is that OP might be a failson, and his mother is hyper-aware of this fact and is now trying to overcompensate by trying to ensure he doesn’t become a further fuck up, but is now unintentionally making it worse.
And yes OPs sympathisers ITT are probably fail sons too, like just don’t fucking tell her about the job interview next time lmao.

Hey, what the fuck?! I agree with you that OP is being imature, but if he's a failson then I'm a disasterson, because I don't even have a degree. I don't think you're a failson if you can't easily get a job in this market.

Why do people always defend helicopter moms?


If this was a boyfriemd, we would call it stalking.


People like you will accuse OP of being ungrateful but then accuse him of being coddled when he cannot do anything right by himself because you side with the helicopter mom.

Parental infallibility is the biggest trick that society uses and its why we have dysfunctional people.

You didn't get my point. I'm not siding with his helicopter mom, I'm siding against them both. I'm siding against his mom for being an annoying helicopter mom, and I'm siding against OP for not being mature enough to stand up for himself and talking things out like adults. His mom might have mental issues, and it's going to take time to get through to her, but it's worth it.

You can't give up on the people who love you the most, this love is invaluable. Chances are that OP dedicates his efforts to making his parents proud, even if subconsciously. If he loses touch with them, or if they die, who is he going to make proud with his achievements? His life will be empty, because no one will care about him as much as his parents. Bitches come and go, your family is irreplaceable.

I think I'm too latino to understand the way you gringos are indifferent towards the idea of having a family that loves you.

>If this was a boyfriemd, we would call it stalking.


This part rustles my jimmies. Mother fucker, it's HIS MOM. The bitch carried him in her belly for months, then he came out of her pussy (unless he's adopted), and she taught him how to walk and talk; it's a way more important relationship than that of a sexual partner, you shouldn't give up on that so easily. You gringos, man…

we need to stop worshiping parenthood this hard. it's not that big of a deal. billions of people have done it and continue to do it every day. it shouldn't automatically entitle you to respect because did that, and it certainly shouldn't be used as a deflection against criticism for things you shouldn't do.

 No.505753

>>505747
This is the 3rd (third) time I'm going to say this: yes, his mom likely has issues, she's probably harder to deal with, and is more in the wrong than OP. But someone has to be the bigger person.

>>505749
>it shouldn't automatically entitle you to respect because did that, and it certainly shouldn't be used as a deflection against criticism for things you shouldn't do.

This is either a strawman or a misunderstanding of my position. I never said that parents are entitled to respect for conceiving and raising you, or that raising you makes them immune from criticism. My point is – and read carefully, because I'll not explain this again – that your relationship with the people who changed your nasty diapers and raised you is special, and generally has a bit more weight than your relationship with a romantic partner or a close friend. I don't think that you should give up on a mentally ill stalker who changed your diapers and saw you talk for the first time the same way you'd give up on a mentally ill stalker who didn't.

And before you strawman me again, here are a few things that are not my point:
-That your parents are entitled to your respect by virtue of them being your parents;
-That the fucked up things your parents do are less fucked up by virtue of them being your parents;
-That parents can't do fucked up things that make them irredeemable;
-That you can't have a relationship with a romantic partner or friend that is stronger than your relationship with your parents;

Again, that doesn't work if only one person does it. If you try that with the kind of person who is already used to walking all over you, they will just continue to take advantage of any grace you extend them. You sound like you don't have either any experience with people like this.
