Life is tough, we all know that.

And it’s even tougher when you feel like everyone in your family, from your parents to your siblings to your aunts and uncles to the family dog have extremely high expectations for you and what you’re going to do with your life and career.

And the folks you’re about to meet were nice enough to share how they think they’ve disappointed their families…and they did it in only 5 words! Hey, I think that by itself is pretty impressive. So I say if your family doesn’t at least appreciate that, then the hell with them.

Let’s see what these people had to say about how they’ve let down their loved ones.

1. What kind of doctor, then?

Well, we’re all waiting!


2. That’s a job?

Can anyone tell me if this is really a job?!?!

3. That’s it, you’re out of here.

What the hell is wrong with you, mister?

4. Ouch…not sure what to say about that.

The look on everyone’s faces says it all.


5. You just broke your mother’s heart.

Are you happy now?

6. What do you enjoy reading?

Comics? Reddit? Or maybe you can’t read?

7. Don’t tell them that!

Just pretend you’re still going. They’ll never know.


8. Come on, don’t do that!

No one should say this.


9. And you are The Strange Man, I’m assuming?

Now I’m kind of intrigued.


10. Everyone just lost their appetite.

Nice effort, though…

11. How bad did it hurt?

Looks kinda painful.

You know the drill…now we want to hear from you!

In the comments, tell us how you’d disappoint your family in five words.

Let’s see what you can come up with!
