Today, my son displayed an interest in chess, and asked me to teach him to play. Five minutes in, I captured his queen. He screamed "SCREW THIS STUPID GAME", slammed his fist down on his pieces, and started crying because of the pain. He's fourteen years-old. FML

Same thing different taste


This is why you play chess on the Internet.

That would be smart if OP wanted a smashed computer screen and an even whinier son and possibly a trip the emergency room.

Your son sounds like a little punk.

Sure. Because slamming a fist into a computer is much less damaging. (Oops, a minute too late. Sorry.)

The good part of it on the computer is that it shows you where you can move and how many steps you take.

But the OP's son sounds like the type of person who would exit out of the game just when the opposing player is about to win. (Technically) no losses = no injured fists and computer screens.

And you can set the level of play low enough that you can beat it. Once you get better, you can increase the level of play.

And you can be best friends with the info button when your queen gets taken!

Yeah, that would definitely go SO much better. "oMG ITS NOT CHECKMATE U FUKEN N00B!!1"

Obviously! When I get my queen captured, I can cry all I want and no one can tell.

I have never been able to beat the computer on hard without cheating. I swear it's impossible.

91 move the CPUs pieces around when the computer isn't looking

#91, I secretly bring in the Scottie Dog from Monopoly and call it The Duke. The Duke can move once during your move or three times during the opponent's move, and it can pee on any opposing piece.

91 - It can tell you what the best move is, or you can undo a move.

No #1, then someone would capture his queen on there and he'd punch the screen

Especially chess with live players. Reference to Community or Harry Potter, take your pick.

46- The most insane chess is when it uses human lives. Reference to the Norway killer.

Live Chess in Doctor Who :) (I'm probably the only Whovian here... But wtv)

2 - That reminds me of that Geico commercial where the loud announcer is narrating the chess game (I can't remember his name)... he can make anything more intense.

Understandable. Chess is a frustrating game. I would probably have grey hair if I played constantly.

have you tried introducing him to tic tac toe? ( I hear it is much like chess, but without pointy/sharp objects..)

Sounds like something my family would do ..

I used to do that, but not since I was four or five.

You mean your daughter and it's her "special time of the month"

No. She said son but maybe it's his special time of the month.

It was a joke because guys can't get a period smh

Technically speaking, men do not menstruate..... But we do go through a couple of days out of the month when our hormones are all out of whack.... It isn't pms, but it is along the same lines.

Ahhh hormones. The moon does all that stuff to them.

Because calling their son a girl is really funny.

Hahahahaha come on always u haven't won once

My sister is 17 and she has temper tantrums.

I'm 14, but really? Some kids are ridiculous. Makes me wish there were better parents put there.

you can't blame it all on the parents because kids have small fits of rage. hormones happen, also disorders and many even mental illness. consider taking some blame in life.

I wish 6 had made this comment lol

Haha yeah that would go perfect with his picture.

Hey everybody it's ALAN! Wait a minute, he's not Alan. PHONY, big fat phony!

He should get some help for his anger issues! He shouldn't lose it over a game of chess.

amandajlucas2015 2

He's probably very competitive and a sore loser.. I happen to be like that and they aren't always the best combination.. I have just learned to win but however when I do lose I usually just walk away angry lol never really slamming my fist he's just a really sore loser lol

50- I think it's a little bit more than just being a sore loser when he's slamming his fist and stuff... Sounds like he has some anger issues.

Check mate. You probably had to clean up...
