You know you've raised your kids right when they hit their teens & they treat you like this but all the other adults in their lives tell you how polite and responsible they are. Teen years are full of emotions, drama, and angst. They have to vent it somewhere.

Well #1 maybe you shouldn't be such an arse? Parents work extremely hard and I bet it kinda hurts to get yelled at that way by your own flesh and blood. Teenagers are stupid but we love them anyways...maybe you should watch your mouth. The family could be going through some hard times.

Well considering my mom has 4 daughters, all different personalities, and not one of us has spoken to her like that, I believe that its all a matter of parenting.

I'm a teenage girl and I know better than to say stuff like that. If I were to yell At my parents, I wouldn't be just grounded. I was raised to be respectful to adults.

Being a teenager is no excuse to act that way. Yes, we all have heightened emotions and go through extreme changes, but that should be no excuse. I wouldn't dare talk to my parents like that as a teen, and I certainly wouldn't now that I'm an adult. Making excuses for other peoples actions only makes the problem worse.

I'm childless ATM, but I have a couple nieces in their teens (plus I kind of went through it myself) and I think it's pretty common. Your body is going through a lot of hormonal changes and you just have to learn how to deal with it. Some kids have it way worse than others - some kids just show a little attitude/angst/whatever, but others morph into little monsters. And while it's never good to be that much of an asshole to your parents, the teenage years just kind of suck for parents to deal with. Fuck the "terrible twos" the teen years are a bitch. Any actual parents out there who have experienced something else, please do correct me if I'm wrong.

90- I am a teenage girl, and I was raised to respect my parents. However, sometimes it's hard not to scream at someone in my family. I have to live with them through them being annoying, stupid, goofy, and loving. The difference is a teenager's relationship with their parents. Certainly it isn't okay to yell at one's parents, but it is extremely common with teenagers. A teenager with a good relationship with their mom/dad should be able to appolagize after yelling and just try not to yell again and vent some other way.

116- I'm not saying teens shouldn't/don't vent their anger/angst/emotions; I'm simply saying that it shouldn't be excused and go unpunished. They need to learn that they can't talk to people like that; otherwise, when they're older, they'll get themselves into a heap of trouble. I'm not saying OP didn't do that, I was just surprised that some people were shrugging it off as the norm. I'm probably wrong and overreacting, but that's just how I initially thought.

127- I'm not saying it should be excused as the norm either. But it's hard to understand why a teen would be severely punished for a simple little misshap. No matter how great a parent is with their teen, this may still happen. The relationship between the teen and the parents is what will make or break a person in the long run. If the teen freaked out like in this FML and later apollozised and just had a talk with her/his parents about what's wrong and why they are grumpy, everything would be solved. I find that parents get though to their kids better when they talk to them vs. punishing them right off the bat.

Wow amazing, you get the "Special Achievement" award, for failing to realize that everyone was or is a teenager at some point in their life...you know what teenager means? Its those years that involve the word "teen" when saying your age...really, how could someone not be a teenager? What are they under 12? How the hell are they on F My Life anyway? <---This would be an example of what not to do as a parent...exposing children to adult content before they can process and handle the content...sometimes the stupidity of mankind is blinding...

#171 Its not just about hormones, either. The brain undergoes both an extreme purging of connections that were developed since babyhood, and an overall developmental process. If I'm correct, the last part of the brain to develop fully is the rational part, roughly at the age of 18. While I agree that behaviour like that shouldn't go unpunished, some kids are wholly incapable of dealing with what is happening to their bodies. We were all/still are teenagers at some point of time in our lives - I certainly was. I was rebellious, disobedient, and sometimes my mother and I got into vicious fights. But at the end of the day I still loved her, and would make it up to her. Personally, I think the whole 13-18 years of anyone's life turns them into a wholly different species. Its a trying time for any parent.

I've never had an outburst quite like that, but I'm 22 and still have days where my mom can make one little comment and it sets me off. Some girls are just more emotional and hormonal in general.

I've had enough with the "the customer is always right" bullshit. ESPECIALLY when the customer tells me that. I've started asking them who the 15th president of the USA is whenever they pull the "I'm the customer so I'm right" Most people don't know who the 15th President was and it proves that the customer is not always right. just my way of dealing with stupid customers...

135- It would be asked in order to prove that the customer is indeed wrong. In case you missed the beginning if the thread I had brought it up in the first place. So no, I didn't miss the rest of the thread. I was asking why they would ask to see your manager for simply asking who the 15th president of the united states, and if they did I could care less. A manager isn't going to fire someone over asking such a simple question.

158 - no they would fire you for trying to be a smart ass with your "simple" question. I can see you are just being obtuse and refuse to see the reason why you would ask that question in the first place... You're a damn cashier, don't be acting like you're a teacher or have a teaching degree if you did you wouldn't be in such a petty position to have such types of customers...

Yep, when people f*** with me at work, I really wanted to go back in time, and give their parents a lifetime supply of condoms, and a handy dandy picture manual on how to use said condoms, in case they were too stupid to know how to use one...I was a cashier once, at McDonalds...good times, good times...

165 - Nope, it's one of the most annoying things when customers are convinced that they really are always right. I work behind a bar and my god you should hear some of the wastes of sperm you get moaning at you. Personally I treat them like they're not doing anything wrong because it makes my life a little easier, but I fully understand why someone would ask a question like that. And if their manager was to fire them for it without even warning them, I'd rather not have a job. Petty wouldn't even cover it.

I'm probably going to get thumb downed into oblivion for saying this, but augustburnstoast you are adorable. Every time I see you comment I think it so I figure why not tell you. That is all.

Get a room. Funny how if a man expresses attraction to a woman on fml, no matter how respectful, the comment gets moderated. The other direction? No problem. Be consistent mods.

There is nothing more to the story. Teens are just that way. My daughter does that all the time. I just laugh. Well, sometimes I tell her that is my job - when she says, "Don't tell me how to live my life" after I've told her to go to sleep or something.

Sorry, but I never thought of speaking that way to my parents. None of my friends or family members are like this either. It's this stupid stereotypical teen image that makes people think that this behaviour is okay. I think it's pretty ridiculous to be honest.

*There* (I'm a little embarrassed about that). I wouldn't have ever talked to my mom that way either, which is why it seems there could have been some provoking. There are three sides to every story, I just don't like to judge too fast.

Not all teenagers go through their teenaged years the same way. Just because you would never talk to your mother that way, and you were able to not to during puberty, doesn't mean that Susie-Jay over yonder is a terrible person because she does. Hormones effect people differently: case in point, PMS - it effects every women's mental state differently. Stop generalizing over anecdotal evidence.
