    Angry "What the...?!" Quotes from Social Media "Friends"

    Shop Now
    Friend of mine posted this gem last night on FB:

    "Children.... when it's snack before bed time and I call you to come and get it. I mean now. If you tell me you're not hungry, I'll tell you that you go directly to bed. If you continue doing your activity through snack time and I have to cut you off, there is no "I change my mind, I want a snack..." It's straight to bed."

    His other friends reply with the typical "Can I have their snacks?" crap, and then there were these:

    "We give them a warning. Have a snack now or go to bed without one. No exceptions! After going to bed in tears a few times because they chose not to listen they got the message! Lol"

    "It's tough love, but the only way kids will get the message. You have to put your foot down."

    WHAT?? Since when are parents supposed to force more food down their kids' throats at bedtime??! WHAT IDIOT INSTRUCTED THEM TO DO THIS?? Was it Oz??!

    Share some "What the...?!" quotes from your idiot friends...go on, you know you want to...

    I don't understand what is going on in this scenario.

    First, there isn't a snack time before bed in our household. Usually it's dinner, tidy, PJs, potty and wash hands, face, and teeth, then stories and bed time. Simple simon.

    Second, if DS is feeling hungry at bed time, he gets a banana. If he's not hungry, he usually goes right to sleep.

    Who knows. I don't' get it.

    This is why I don't do facebook. Biggest waste of time ever invented.

    sorry, still doing the Super Grover "Hubba-wha?!" that parents are feeding their kids after dinner. What the? Grace gets dinner. If she finishes it, she has the option of enjoying a special treat with daddy (usually she picks ice cream). If she doesn't eat dinner, she goes to bed.

    What I don't get is why you are feeding your Nintendo DS bananas at all.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    As a kid/preteen/teen, I was only allowed PB and J and water for a week, and I had to sleep in the garage on a cot if I missed my chores- no f'ing joke. I seldom missed my chores (which included doing the family laundry and making dinner, on top of regular cleaning). I moved out the day I turned 18- no joke. A "snack" was something my mom had in her personal pantry or freezer, with her name on it- no snacks for me. Hey, at least I don't need snacks now

    I've never understood the bedtime snack for kids. Ok, even with SAD lifestyle, they say don't eat after a certain time like 7:00pm. So why would the child have a snack after dinner? If they're hungry, let them eat more during the day. It's not rocket science.

    I've never heard of snacks before bedtime! The closest I've seen was a kid I used to babysit that got a bottle of milk as he was falling asleep, which made him cough to the point of vomiting frequently. Made me so sad, but that's what his mum wanted.
