Things I Don't Understand About Teenagers

Knitwits Yarns

1. Why are they happy to spend an hour weight-training/circuit training in the evening but pulling the bath plug out is just too much effort?

2. Why are they physically unable to turn lights off when they leave a room?

3. Why do they need the computer, play station, stereo and laptop on all at the same time?

4. Why can't they turn any of these off when they leave the room?

5. How can they get dirty washing to the floor around the dirty linen basket but can't get it into the basket? Is lifting a lid really that hard?

6. Why is it so easy to get the bread, butter, ham/chicken/pate/cheese out of the fridge but absolutely impossible to put it back?

7. Why is it so easy to finish a pack of biscuits but impossible to put the empty pack in the bin?

8. Who told them that wet towels are best stored in a heap on the floor? Hint: It wasn't me.

9. Why is cycling 60 miles on a Sunday a doddle (or, indeed, cycling from John O'Groats to Land's End) but popping 3 miles down to the local shop for a pint of milk absolutely impossible?

10. Why is lifting the toilet seat and using the little silver handle to flush so unbelievably, impossibly, difficult?

11. Why do really quite intelligent people find putting a duvet in its cover nigh-on impossible?

12. Why is it absolutely essential to shout, argue and (often) fight prior to emptying the dishwasher?

These and other questions will, no doubt, be answered when they have teenagers of their own (and, oh boy, how I'm going to enjoy watching that experience!).

  1. My husband hasn't been a teenager for many years, but this fits him to a T. How sad is that?
