I'll show my family a little game I coded or a picture I painted. My mom will make a stink face and immediately ask me how work is going. What is that?

My Boomer parents hate the fact I don't work all day outside if school. Despite me paying my own way, and paying rent, they get uppity I'm working on my car, playing videogames, golfing, shooting pool with friends etc. I'm never going to be able to retire so they can fuck off while I enjoy the small free time I have. Besides, now that they're retired, all they do is watch TV and walk. They have no hobbies, plenty of friends, money to spend, but instead nag me on Wednesday afternoon.
>working on my car
that's building a useful skill
that's pure boomer nip
>shooting pool with friends
you have a social circle which will aid your success in life. I don't get it.
On 2nd thought, it occurred to me Boomer parents are jealous. They bought the "American dream" were told to get a good paying job and life would be dandy. Even though they lived through the Reagan Era and Bretton Woods Conference, and enjoyed a prosperous, low crime, low diversity life; they look at their kids living differently and hate it. They hate the rebellious wagie because to reject their system, their sitcom shows and life, means the Boomer's life is a cursed life.
I'm hounded to clean my room, but they will leave sticky shit on the floor and spread it around.
Sorry to hear that bud, It is almost guaranteed they are jealous might I ask do your parents tend to fall towards the liberal side?
Hobbies are for homosexuals.
Start a business.
Start a family.
Something a respectable man would do.
She doesn't respect you and I'm not surprised.
The superior goy. Goy of the month
Nope actually in the past
Hobbies are for rich and millionaires. Who have free time and plenty of money
Reading books or philosophy are the same . It's for noble not working class .
The rise of middle class in cold war period are merely exception in the history
>Your entire life must be dedicated to working yourself to death for the banker class until you pass an arbitrary bank balance number. Only then are you allowed to enrichen your life with things like "thinking" and "reading". No fun allowed.
That's such a dog shit take I can't even. Hobbies were the reason most people were even able to bring in extra money in the first place when they weren't out working fields you fucking mong. Believe it or not but most professions started out as some dude taking an interest in something that wasn't "farmer" "labourer" or "soldier".
When they had free time AKA the other half the fucking year they weren't working the fields. There's a reason there were so many state (religious) holidays where people were told to stay home and chill; nobody can maintain a healthy mind working 24/7.
Lol this guy’s wife 100% fucks around
That’s because your mom is a bitch. Sorry you lost that lottery. Mine is very nice.
I have a job and I'm actively trying to date. Do I need a job and a business to be respected?
my hobby is starting businesses and families O_O
MAN UP and do nothing other than serve our so.y.ciety!
No, I don’t think I will
My Mom supported my hobbies. I miss my Mom.
I hope youre still doing the hobbies for yourself and she's standing by you
I miss your mom too
Women hate whenever you are doing things that don't gain influence, status, or money for her to spend.
they are all karens
its so boring
yeah my mom does that too. but let me opine on this for a moment.
my mother (and yours too, probably) lives a life with a massive void in it. I don't know why it's there or how it started, but it's there. she tries to fill it with everything but nothing works. she's tried
>every other meme diet under the sun
>travel (aka spending my dad's money [very common void-filler])
>"I'm spiritual but not religious" bullshit
>the list goes on just think liberal mom things
And now the most recent void-filler is tiktok. she'll just sit around all day and scroll and scroll and scroll
I think that she sees my hobbies and doesn't understand what it's like to have something that you work for which helps actually fill the void. I like hacking and video game theory but I know that she can't relate. even so, I don't get met with a "wow that's really cool anon" I get met with a sarcastic eye roll.
Personally, I think she's jealous. at least my dad will let me rant for a bit.
Do you show interest in her interests but get nothing in return? I can talk to my mom about stuff she is excited about but it doesn't seem like the favor is returned.
I believe that I try to. whenever she's got a new meme diet I like to ask questions about it. When she was on keto I was asking her how she knew she was in ketosis and what she's eaten and stuff (she didn't know the signs of ketosis, furthering my suspicion that she doesn't really care all that much & just wants to identify with something she saw on the Internet). I like to ask her where her and my dad have traveled (iceland recently, good reviews from them) and what trails she'd hiked. I see my parents a lot so I get lots of opportunities to talk to them
>I can talk to my mom about stuff she is excited about but it doesn't seem like the favor is returned.
okay cool, so it's not just me. I mean I like to talk about stuff I like of course, as does everyone, but I also want to learn about other people and the stuff they like and do. I dunno, I feel like that's not reciprocated by the overwhelming majority of people. even when I was a kid I loved video games but instead of my parents being involved and using that as a vehicle to further my understanding of computers and shit, it was always "3 hours a day anon that stuff rots your brain"
I dunno. I feel like I'm curious but they aren't. I wonder if that's just got to do with getting old and set in your ways
You're right, many people are like that. I think people like that feel morally justified in shutting you down because they think they have discovered what things are important and what aren't. So if you bring up a diet they value they are compelled to promote it and discuss with you. If you bring up something they think is bad like video games they feel a moral imperative to shut you down.
>they think they have discovered what things are important and what aren't.
totally agreed. I've even seen that behavior in myself as I've matured more and have become more resolute in what I value. I really have to take a step back and say "alright, they value this thing and I don't, but there's got to be some reason that they value this thing even if I think it's silly." like my mother's buddhism phase. she didn't act on it, didn't know anything about the literature or teachings other than "peace my brother we are all one with the UnIvErSe." it was a shallow understanding and a shallow approach to the ideologies. but she liked it. So I asked myself why, and I came to the conclusion that she's bored as hell and is shopping for religions to get behind so she could have some sort of identity
it's like on principle, if the value something provides is to put a band-aid over a gaping void, it's not going to work and it won't solve your problems. but I didn't shut her down at all, I encouraged her to read more of the literature and learn more about the teachings even if I wanted to roll my eyes at yet another of her inane and fleeting interests. I mean shit, at least she'd learn something new
just wish that sort of encouragement was reciprocated. oh well
Anon, sounds like your mom has Narcissistic Personality Disorder; NPDs will go on and on about the most trivial shit in their lives but HATE anybody else being in the sunshine because it's all about THEM, THEM, THEM.
Case in point:
>" I can talk to my mom about stuff she is excited about but it doesn't seem like the favor is returned."
>make a stink face
this is ur issue soft boy
Its because youre a do nothing loser with a shit job (or in reality, no job).
Hobbies are for people who can afford free time.
If you cant support yourself- you dont have free time. Youre mother is showing you her disgust in your time wasting bullshit. This is why asians are successful - they react appropriately to their families shaming and derision.
>actually, you cant support yourself! Actually, you have no job!
You sound schizophrenic
No, my mother supported me playing music. She still shows pictures to people of me opening shows for George Jones twenty years ago.
I live in another country and see my mom maybe twice a decade. I don't think she cares either way.
She's a bitch because of the stink face.
At the same time, you shouldn't need mommy's approval as a 20 something male.
>speaking to your mothers after age 17
wtf why? you got some inheritence waiting or something
Sad how the israelites have destroyed the American nuclear family
i really would love to know if this is by design, if they carefully calculated the exact effect of media and goyslop and peer pressure to slowly grind down families. i dont even understand the whole thing, my parents shared nothing with me about themselves my whole life, they just encouraged me to make money and consume mindlessly and tried to shame me for resisting. my mother is heavily catholic too and her religion brings her absolutely no peace. america has bred very strange relationship problems revolving around nobody having the interest or energy for it. everyone is too stimulated and occupied by too much making them retarded animals that just want to fight to maintain their addictions and shame anyone that doesnt do the same. no emotional development. no personal growth. no wisdom. nothing of value being shared or handed down. just a weird endless over indulgence and contempt stream of demonic satanic influences
There's a redpill you haven't swallowed yet. Your mom is a woman. She is vile, shallow, and manipulative. You think she's "not like those other women", but she is. There is no difference. And there's no reason to cozy up to her because she'll railroad you to save herself at the drop of a hat. If you haven't realized it yet, it's because the opportunity hasn't presented itself.
sucks to have a trash relationship with your mother and grandmother you fucking homosexual, but you are entirely wrong. we could argue generalizations but you are touching on narcissism and ur mother having a trash upbringing. This could be due to your location or simply trash genetics either on either parents side, please share some info and we will discuss.
There's way more examples of mothers sacrificing themselves, instead of their children.
How sad of a life you live to be dishing out this gloomy advice.
All three of you are wrong, but the simps/cucks are the most wrong. Here’s the simple truth: in nature, some mothers are good mothers to all of their offsrping; but in other situation, the mother will reject one or morenof her offspring. This often involves brutally cannibalizing the offspring, and not just leaving it to die of exposure.
Human women are animals, not people. They don’t have souls like we do. They follow natural instinct; and sometimes that is to raise the offspring and other times it is to brutally murder it. My mother was a wonderous mother who gave me everything, but it looks like yours is trying to eat you.
My cat gave birth to litter after litter. Each time, she would cannibalize some of the offspring in truly bloody fashions; she would wait until the kittens were about 3 weeks old, and then gouge out their eyes with her claws, leaving them howling for days. In the meantime she would chew out their tongues. Then, finally, she would sever each limb at a time until the poor creature bled out; then she would consume the kitten leaving nothing but patches of fur behind. It was truly terrible to human eyes, but to animal mothers this is merely nature. And one musn’t fuss about nature.
yall are fucking nuts
this is a reasonable take. letting kittens bleed from the eye sockets and have no limbs for days is fucking retarded.
Are you from texas?
Mine send me random fishing lures, and fly fishing books. Same goes for camping stuff. Love my mom.
whatever my mom hates about me she has to keep to herself while i do my best to remain a part of her life.
My mom wants me to get an arranged marriage to a traditional conservative girl, and gets annoyed I play video games
>Stop wasting money on games you should be saving up to open a business to support your future family
No thanks I'm not becoming a slave to a woman who wants me wrapped around her finger
She does this for almost everything I do so I stopped caring.
They won't eat my cooking except to be nice.
i can't even begin to describe how hideous it has been trying to see this stupid family dog to the end of it's life while my mother stomps around as though her only purpose in life is to expel as much malignant misery into the environment as she possibly can. her entire life has been an endless seething session over fucking everything. adults that have emotional structures of toddlers are a blight
>while my mother stomps around as though her only purpose in life is to expel as much malignant misery into the environment as she possibly can. her entire life has been an endless seething session over fucking everything. adults that have emotional structures of toddlers are a blight
You too? My mom does that on top of being a cartoon character version of a Karen. At least she says nice things about my drawings however
Blame feminism and cucks for giving then rights/enforcing them. You’re in a war, and cucks started it.
every female hates a man with hobbits on a deep level. why? cus girls dont have the luxury of having a hobby. they have a biological clock.
Boomers literally, unironically, not even joking, are so buck broken that all they care about IS work. Work is their personality. What work you do is how they decide whether they respect you or not. All they live for is to work. To answer your question yes, they could not give a fuck about anything outside of the tv and work
life was a party up until 9/11, i don't blame boomers for being all fucked up. they lived an amazing dream that nothing may ever be able to measure up to again. here's to hoping and doing what we can to try and make life enjoyable or w0tevar lmao
Your mom isn't a great, clever or interesting person, but she had a pussy and your dad wanted some.
That's how most boomer relationships work.
My mother teaches at an academy of art uni, so If anything she's the one to always show me pictures/paintings and shit, and I'm the one with the stink face.
bruh same lmao. it has been that way for me since i was 16 or so. boomers have no problem sitting in front of mindless cable tv for 4+ hours but i read a book in my spare time and they throw a hissy fit over "wasting time" or "do something useful". I have grown extremely secretive of my hobbies to the point I don't even talk to my parents about anything except for work.
I told my mom about crypto bsck in the early days and how is help her invest. She just told me I was an idiot for buying a scam. Then I became a millionaire and bought a porche gt3 rs and drive it to her house to show her my new toy. She didn’t know anything about cars and didn’t believe me that I paid 220k for a car. Then she asked me why I wasn’t working anymore and if I planned on getting a real job again. Now despite my cars and house she thinks I’m a bum living off welfare lol.
>and bought a porche gt3 rs
Even if this is a larp, unlike most people good choice
If you have more money to burn may I suggest a Singer 911
Your mom just dislikes you and wants you to fail. Serious.
you're circumcised, aren't you?
your mother hates you
is this the definition of a fucking slide jessusss i didn't realize what they actually met by this. get out while u can boys. slide threaded slide
My parents are extremely supportive of me despite me being a massive loser, I pay bills and don't leech off them but idk, I think they lie to me, I have asked them on various occasions if they are ashamed of me or something and they adamantly say no and that they love me etc
My boomer parents destroyed me because they couldn’t get to each other.
