People Share The Minor Things Their Parents Do That They Find Extremely Annoying

It's not just what they do, but what they say as well.

Every time my Dad phoned me and I mean every time he would say 'wait until I turn down the television' and disappear for about 20 seconds. Why the feck no turn it down before phoning. Wish he was still doing it today mind you.

My mum can’t pronounce Arnold Schwarzenegger’s name AT ALL & instead every time she tries to say it she says “Arnold Schwarz-n-ham-n-egg-burger” for absolutely no reason other than she finds it hilarious.

Writes ‘lol’ at the end of every message, no matter how sad or serious. Thinks it means ‘lots of love’.

Mum: Just texting to say your cat has been put down, nothing they could do, it’s for the best. LOL x

Every time I would get off the phone with my mom she would say, "don't forget to lock your door tonight." Every. Single. Time. My friends started to do it to me. Drove me nuts. Funny thing is, I miss it now that she's gone.

And also, calls texts, faxes. “Has your brother faxed you back yet?”

My mother, who died a few years ago, would call all computers, iPads, and mobile phone ‘Da da dahs’ and mimed pushing buttons on the keypad. If age hadn’t killed her, I might have.
