'Worst Parents Ever' Compilation Will Make You Feel Better About Your Own

As the holidays approach, many of us will take the pilgrimage to see the sadists who brought us into this cruel world, otherwise knows as our parents. At this meeting, whoever your parents may be, there is a very high probability that at least one parent will say or do something that you will find absolutely moronic, irritating or offensive. This will in turn lead to you:
  • Roll your eyes at them
  • Sob uncontrollably
  • Scream at the top of your lungs
  • Lock yourself in your childhood bedroom and refuse to come out for the rest of the trip
  • Some combinations of the above

Amazingly, there is another option, one that doesn’t involve another year filled with guilt over all the “missed” calls from your family. If you feel yourself starting to lose control while visiting with parentals, simply excuse yourself for a few moments and watch the above video compilation of seven parents (who in all likelihood are) worse than yours. Then calmly go back and try to fool everyone into believing that you’re a mature adult for the rest of the night.
