sometimes I really hate Asian parents

I'll probably regret posting this, but here goes...

So my father and I got into a bad argument after dinner. He was ranting about how I never seem to study for my classes. Finishing my homework quickly is apparently a bad idea because Dad will think I have too much free time. It didn't help that he was very stressed after coming back from a long business trip.

But the straw that broke the camel's back was when I called him an idiot for not knowing what "I've already finished my homework" meant. He totally lost it and became really mad. Let's just say things turned ugly afterwards. It was a rough night - I'm glad nobody called the cops on us.

Granted, this was partially my fault because kids shouldn't really be calling their parents names. However, given the circumstances, I don't think "idiot" was entirely inaccurate. Sometimes Asian parents can go fuck themselves. I know I shouldn't be posting this stuff online, but this is something I had to get off my chest.

Friday update: I hope people won't think my father is a terrible person. Though he has hot temper, he's really one of the nicest people you'll ever know as long as you don't get on his bad side.
