9 Uncalled For Things Your Parents Will Say To You After You Graduate

As if having having to cope with graduate life isn’t hard enough, the people who are supposed to be there for you are making it worse with their questions and comments. Please stop.

1. “When are you going to move back home?”

2. “Isn’t it about time you got out of bed now?”
