Things teenagers say to parents vs what they really mean

What they say: “Whatever”

What they mean: I’ve lost the argument/can’t get my own way and am trying to pretend I don’t care. WHICH I DO!

What they say: “I’m bored/ this is boring”

What they mean: I am feeling agitated and annoyed for no good reason – thanks to hormones. Also, nothing – and I mean nothing – would seem interesting to me right now. You could open a portal to another world and I would find it as dull as watching soaps with Nan.

What they say: “You don’t understand”

What they mean: I am feeling misunderstood and even if you do understand or are trying your hardest to understand, I will get annoyed at you for even thinking you could fathom the problems of such a deeply, complex soul.

What they say: “Yolo”

What they mean: I’m about to do something without thinking about the consequences. Something I am bound to regret.

What they say: “I was just about to do that”

What they mean: I was never, ever, ever going to do that. I don’t know why you even bothered asking me to do it in the first place.

What they say: “Their parents are really cool”

What they mean: But their parents have let them do that thing you won’t let me do, so I am going to try and make you jealous until you change your mind.
