Today, I casually mentioned to my dad that it was the Chinese New Year yesterday. He accused me of insulting his intelligence by "making stupid shit up." I explained that it's real, and that we just use the Gregorian calendar, hence the different dates. He responded by grounding me. FML

I live in China and believe me, it's very real. It's not every day that you wake up with firecrackers going off on the building in front of you.
OP's dad is really ignorant, he should come here and see for himself.

It's not necessarily ignorance or 'dickishness', parents in general just don't enjoy it very much at all when their children pierce through their facade of infallibility; imagine if you created something that subsequently turned around and challenged your intelligence - the creator will never accept criticism lightly from the created.

78, what? Why would a parent not be happy to realize their child is growing up and learning about the world? "parents in general" are not like this unless they are extremely insecure and immature.

They'd love for their child to grow and learn; they just hate it when they feel that child is using their knowledge condescendingly against them... I know mine do, even when that's not the intention.

That's a relatively easy lesson on how to deal with stupid people who are in a position of authority over you. Once you got pushback on the Chinese New Year fact, you should have abandoned your Gregorian calendar jibber-jabber.

If you know about Rosh Hashanah, you might just want to keep that to yourself.

After reading several of the recent FML's, it seems that not only this dad, but many other parents were born in this most unfortunate time period known to most scholars as "ass."
