"Because you're always on your phone."

Posted on

1. Since the dawn of time, parents have never understood their children.

Because you're always on your phone is a standard parent answer to all your problems

2. At least that's how it feels from the child's perspective.

Dad: does your neck hurt? Me: no why? Dad: because you're always on your phone. Me: it's because I don't have a life. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘

3. But then, things got complicated when technology entered the scene:

My mom blames everything on my phone. Like I could tell her I'm hungry and she would be like because you're always on your phone

4. Even when we're actually in true pain, parents just don't understand:

me: "my knee hurts again" mother: "maybe it's because you're always on your phone"

5. Well, actually...maybe, nope, you didn't even have your phone with you.

I just fell down the stairs And my mom goes "it's because you're always on your phone" I DIDNT EVEN HAVE MY PHONE WITH ME I'm okay though

6. The struggle of having good skin:

Mom my hands are really soft *mom not paying attention* "it's because you're always on your phone" ... What no?

7. I'm sorry, last time I checked, body injuries weren't exclusively related to phones.

๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญRT @FelixYSL: Me "I think I pulled a calf muscle" Mom: "because you're always on your fucking phone" Me:

8. Just no, mom.

mom:you don't smell that? it smells me:no I can't smell mom:you know why u can't smell because you're always on your fckin phone BRUH

9. And sometimes they can't even take a joke:

me: mom i think i have ebola mom: ya because you're always on your phone

10. I don't know โ€” for this one, he might have a SLIGHT case.

I told my dad that my vision was going blurry and he was like "Yeah because you're always on your phone" lol

11. And if you think this problem is specific to you, it's not just your parents, it's everyone's:

Arab parents find every way to blame technology for your troubles. "Mama I'm sick" "It's because you're always on your phone ya hmar"

12. Even "crusty old people" are taking issue with phone use:

me on my death bed: what did i do to deserve so cruel and tragic a fate? crusty old person: it's because you're always on your phone

13. OK now this response is just getting a little ridiculous, parents.

when your parents say "it's because you're always on your phone" after everything you say ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

14. In this case it really seems like the phone isn't the issue at all.

"The reason you get bad grades is because you're always on your phone" Still wouldn't study if I wasn't.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ฃ

15. Substitute teachers aren't an exception to the rule either:

When substitutes assume you're a bad kid because you're always on your phone but you're really smart as fuck...

16. Even when you're just trying to get some advice:

*tells mom life problems* "It's because you're always on your phone."

17. OK, now this is just getting out of hand:

To my mom everything I do is because of my phone. Oh the dog died? It's because you're always on your phone.

18. Being on the phone while in the car and being on the phone while driving are two completely different things.

My dad: you don't know how to drive because you're always on your phone and never pay attention ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

19. Even when you haven't stood up all day:

Me: My ankle hurts. My Grandma: It's because you're always on your phone.

20. They definitely can't have it both ways:

parents yell at you because you're always on your phone, and then they yell when you don't answer. can't have it both ways. ๐Ÿ˜’

21. But where will I go?

MY MOM JUST PULLED THE "your grades are bad because you're always on your phone" YOU CAN GET OUT OF MY HOUSE NOW

*Sigh.* Maybe one day, they'll get it...
