Like I tell my kids..."My parents annoyed me so now it's my job to annoy you which in turn when you have kids, you will annoy them". Like it says in the Lion's the circle of life.

It's parental payback for all the times we have to repeat ourselves. lol

Clean your room. Did you clean your room? Why is your room not clean? Didn't I ask you to clean your room? Please dear G-d, CLEAN YOUR ROOM!!!!

My dad did it again this morning.

I got up this morning and my dad just got home from shoprite and he said *look what i got you* *frozen pizza* he takes it out of the freezer to show me. i was like...okay..

Then hes like...did you see the cat food i got for your cats? i was like....yes, i put it away in the food closet.

Tonight he made dinner for us. He set it up in a baffet style.
So he points out to the food. You have chicken,frys,macoroni salad,dressing...etc...

i was like...we can see the food. no need for show and tell.

Sadly there are people like my brother who take one look in the fridge and call it a day.. so maybe the food fashion show has it's up sides but I certainly don't need it unless it's frozen meat (that's always hard to identify lol)

Sounds like he's fishing for some appreciation. Maybe you could try to gush over the things he does for you now and then to show him that you appreciate those trips to the store, and the meals he makes. It gets discouraging as a parent when you hear lots of 'there's nothing to eat' or 'we're out of cat food'. It makes us old farts just about desperate to hear 'thanks for dinner dad, it looks great!' or 'thanks for picking up the cat food, I put it away'. Just a thought. :)

LOL this thread is too funny!

I am well into my 30's and my folks still do things that annoy me. We are 30+ hrs. Drive away and I don't see them them all but once or twice a year or ring them once or twice a month.(none of us are phone talkers).
But I think its kinda cute now when mom tells me the same "home town gossip" she did the last three times before just to keep me on the phone a little longer....or when I come home dad buys me dry salami and Grolsh beer in glass bottles with the fancy lids and has to tell me all about it because he knows its my favorite. LOL

Aww, I think your dad is cute, OP. Sounds like you and your mom have the barn thing, I think he wants attention too, something to bond over. I agree that if you tell him next time he shows you all the food, "Awesome, looks great, thanks dad!" it'll make his day. It may be annoying now, but I promise you will look back on this later, realize how cute it was, and maybe even feel guilty for not showing more appreciation.

As far as annoying parents... mine weren't that annoying, lol. I'm 22 and my mom and I are very close, she's basically my best friend. I was the kid with the "cool mom." Don't let that fool you though, I never got away with anything! Haha.

Yup, Dad just wants to be shown some attention.
As the parent, it's my goal to totally annoy and embarrass my kids!! But, only when they deserve it.

Yep, I agree with the pp. Put yourself in your dad's place. You and your mom have the barn and horses to talk about, and I bet you talk about it all the time. He is left out. I bet if you started being interested in the stuff he gets it would make his day. And if you really want to make him smile for weeks, go shopping with him or find what his hobby is and do that with him so you have something in common you can talk about other then cat food.
