Depending on what kind of family you grew up in, the expectations from your parents and siblings can go a lot of different ways.

You can either have immense pressure that stresses you out and suffocates you, or you can have laid-back parents who just like to go with the flow. And, of course, there are some inbetweeners as well…

But I have a feeling that all of these folks who took to Twitter to disappoint their families in 5 words have been feeling their loved ones breathing down their necks.

Let’s see what they had to say.

1. There’s no shame in that!

But maybe your family feels otherwise…

2. You’re stuck with me.

For the looooooong haul.

3. You did an excellent job.

I bet everyone was very happy about this.


4. Ouch. That one hurts.

It can’t be that bad. Can it?


5. You’re not alone, my friend.

Get in line, buddy!

6. Grandma will be very happy.

What does that say on your forehead, honey?

7. Teach Mom a lesson this year.

I don’t think she’s gonna like that.

8. Are you sure about that?

Why don’t you try accounting?


9. Maybe you should leave that in the past.

Just a thought…

10. Them’s fighting words!

You just made a lot of enemies.

11. You did what?!?!

Well, dinner is ruined. And so is 2020.

12. Now you have to explain it to them.

This might take a while.

13. Yeah, I noticed that, too…

Get it together, people!


Well, I guess you could say that it’s pretty easy to disappoint our families, huh?

And now we want to hear from you!

In the comments, tell us how you’d do it in five words! Please and thank you!
