    Between her farting without excusing herself,

    My grandma keeps nagging

    that she wants me to get married and have a child. I'm sorry, grandma, but I'm only 18 and I just got out of an extremely abusive relationship, I don't have a job, don't go to school, and I'm clinically depressed. How do you think I will be able to get married + raise a kid???

    Can I just say, parents don't know everything.

    The moment you try and defend yourself, they automatically tell you that you don't know anything. It's ridiculous that parents can yell at us, but we can't yell at them. They don't let us explain why we did something, they just assume.
