Of course if I ever said any of those things to him, he'd call me ungrateful....but my mother knows the truth, as would his father if he was still alive.
luckily he and I get along for the most part these days. I love my dad, but....that's about where our relationship ends.

It's too bad my mom can't stand me either. I don't think I like both of my parents because of their arguments all the time.
All those little snarky comments I make come from this.
Parents these days generally suck. They key is for future parents to understand how that behavior effected them....and to be determined not to repeat the same mistakes.
And "cool" parents....are the worst of all.
Lifetime member of the "specific element" and proud of it.
And my mom too. Both my parents. I wish people cared about their children more.
