Still going to help them retire but this shits me to no end and it's almost too late for them.
>>1046860 Just some shit from childhood which they weren't even technically right about, I just agreed because fuck arguing with them.
Dad literally unironically said "It's completely logical that if we were right about one thing maybe you should listen to us for everything else" and he says this when I bring up facts and logical arguments against something he says.
Pretty annoying desu.
>"Anon we're not forcing you to do anything ,we don't want you to one day accuse us of coercing you into anything" then >Gets mad if I say I don't want to do something/have other opinion on something
>Mom: "Anon can you teach us about investing and what stocks mean and all that stuff?" Literally a few hours later >Mom: "Anon did you know that the economy is in terrible shape and you shouldn't be studying Finance because no one needs any of that when the market is ruined? Watch some news sometime!"
I followed my parents bad advice way too many times.
They fund my studies, which is cool. But a condition was that I chose the shortest path to my master degree. So after negotiating I decided to leave some subjects out. It reduces my career perspectives, but if I put down enough money I can always follow those courses at a later date I guess. >get my degree >dad says he finds it very disappointing I didn't follow those extra courses >say it was his idea >he denies it You motherfucker. Now I have to pay like 20k to get those extra subjects, while I could've done them for 2k before.
>>1046836 My parents are the polar opposite of lazy and unsuccessful, but they do give bad advice sometimes. >don't know what you want to major in anon? Just do Liberal Arts, you can take a bunch of different classes and you're bound to like one of them. 2 years down the drain
