My parents have done this before, so I am not just harping on The Man’s parents in the following story.

The Man’s dad calls him today and asks if he can come over for lunch tomorrow. He says that he and The Man’s mom want to talk to him. The Man asks if everything is okay. The Man’s dad says everything is great actually, but did not go into more detail.

Now why in the heck do our parents do that? Why can't they just tell us over the freaking phone or just say hey can you come over for lunch like they want to hang out with us so we aren't all paranoid and in anticipating the worst for two days. Jeez.

His mom has been out of work for months now and we are hoping that they are great because she finally got a job. But the only way I’m not going to be pissed that they did this to us is if they won millions of dollars and they are giving half to us.

I think they're the last
face-to-face generation and we're the first electronic generation. For
them, it's like a matter of respect. And, for us, we care about our time
and would rather know now via phone or e-mail. I'm not defending them or
anything. It was just a thought.
