sometimes I really hate Asian parents

I'll probably regret making this post, but here goes...

I had an extremely bad argument with my father last night. The incident began with him ranting about how I never seem to study. Finishing my homework quickly is apparently a bad idea because Dad will think I have too much free time. To make matters worse, he had just come back from a long business trip and was very stressed as a result of the jet lag.

But the straw that broke the camel's back was when I called him an idiot for not understanding what "I already finished my homework" meant. He totally lost it at that point, and let's just say things turned ugly afterwards.

Believe it or not, my father was actually sober the entire time. One could only imagine the chaos had he been drinking. It's been a rough night; I'm just glad nobody called the cops on us.

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

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