Today, I attended my graduation ceremony. My parents acted mysteriously and kept urging me to go home, since we had to be "on time" for something. Thinking they might have planned a surprise party, I left my friends behind. I missed my graduation because my mom wanted to watch a TV show. FML

And that’s when you tear her a new one. That’s why people invented DVR.

That’s pretty selfish of your mother to think that her show is more important than your own graduation.

Was it a good show?

And that’s when you tear her a new one. That’s why people invented DVR.

This FML doesn’t make sense to me. OP, please explain further.

I was thinking the same thing. It doesn't make sense, not in this day and age of DVRs readily available. Also, why would they need the OP to go with them?

Perhaps they were her ride?

Not everyone has a DVR. My parents refused to get one as they had access to On Demand from Comcast. OP probably didn’t have a vehicle, thus had to leave with parents.

on my high school graduation I had to walk home. it was almost a 2 and a half hour walk

Your parents suck.

are you in preschool, why did you have to leave with your parents, you could have stayed with your friends and hung out, while your parents went home to watch the show

not all kids drive at the end if high school... seeing as how they dont have DVR I'm assuming the kid doesn't gave a car of their own

Did you miss the part where she was under the impression that there was a surprise?

That’s pretty selfish of your mother to think that her show is more important than your own graduation.

She could have left you behind and went about her business smh

As much as I hate saying it, time to move out! You should take the T.V. with you.

It’s not “time to move out”. In most places, 18 can’t get you shit. Rent is rising, and most countries have issues with employers paying too low for the new generation to survive on. I was tossed out at 18, and I was lucky a family friend needed a roommate. I struggled for 2 years before things started to let loose a little, and I still don’t know what I’m doing. “Move out” isn’t a good option at 18. Maybe 25.

Your parents are asses
