You might think your parents are the most embarrassing people on the planet, but after you read this Twitter thread started by @Sinclair1875, or Jamie for short, you might actually appreciate them more. Jamie asked his followers, “Is there something trivial that your parents say that really f*cking annoys you for no good reason?”
Then he shared his example, which was “my mum accidentally calling Pets at Home ‘Pets City’ for the past twelve years is right up there.” I have no idea what that is, because it seems like Jamie and most of the people in his replies are from the U.K., but yeah… that sounds infuriating
Is there something trivial that your parents say that really fucking annoys you for no good reason? My mum accidentally calling Pets at Home ‘Pets City’ for the past twelve years is right up there

Or it would if she were MY mom. You see, the little quirks that drive you up the wall about your own parents would be funny if it were someone else. That’s why everyone’s answers are so hilarious. Scroll through to see all the annoying things other people’s parents do and thank your lucky stars that your mom doesn’t scream-sneeze.
my mom refers to the band Bombay Bicycle Club as One Man and His Bicycle despite repeated corrections. also she misread Peaky Blinders once as Pesky Blinnders (???) and now refuses to call it anything else

Actually, aye, instead of calling it ‘pepperoni’, my Dad says ‘peperami’. Could be at an Italian restaurant and my Dad will legitimately ask the waiter for a ‘peperami pizza’. Send help.

Instead of saying “take a chill pill” my dad says “take a chill-out tablet”

My mum will always ALWAYS call KFC “Kentucky fried chicken” and I know that’s what it stands for but where’s the need to call it it’s full name, or even just “Kentucky” sometimes???? Why????

Writes ‘lol’ at the end of every message, no matter how sad or serious. Thinks it means ‘lots of love’.
Mum: Just texting to say your cat has been put down, nothing they could do, it’s for the best. LOL x

My mum says ‘ohhh pimp my ride’ every time something shocks her and I can’t even begin to understand why

Instead of calling it “The Simpsons” my Mum just used to say “Bart Simpson” and it really got on my wick
