The other week, I was in a car on my way to a destination
嗯 显然汽车不是目的地 是去目的地的工具
Well, obviously a car is never a destination. It’s a tool to go to a destination…
不管怎样 我赶上了红灯 停在一辆SUV的后面 在后玻璃上
Anyway, we hit a red and we’re behind this SUV and on the rear window
I see a sticker that says “mother of a stanford alumni”,
and I was like “what what is that?
What what does that mean?” Okay, I knew what it meant,
obviously the drivers son or daughter graduated from Stanford University
It’s just that I usually see the actual graduate students bragging about it on their own vehicles,
for some reason this one, bothered me, just a little bit too much…
You know why because that parent did not put it on for their friends and family
And I speculate this because if they had that much level of pride
their mutual’s wouldn’t need a sticker to be informed of that matter
They would have been called on the phone or have been sent a text or been updated in person at a party
“嘿 弗兰克！猜猜怎么着？我儿子 研究生 毕业了”
“Hey, Frankie! (ya d*ck bag), guess what? My son is a post Secondary Graduate.
不是 他们的贴纸是给全世界的人看的 而我就在其中
No, they put it on for the world to see, and I was in that world
I didn’t like it…
Syndical Dom 刚出门就讨厌这位家长（哦 我的天啊）
Syndical Dom just just came out and immediately HATED this parent (Oh my)
From who he knows nothing about the fact that they’re Very proud of their offspring,
they might have been first-generation immigrants
who had to start from the bottom and their family faced through many hardships of
受到歧视还有一些说不出的事情 我不知道 这就是一种修辞性的冒昧的言论
Discrimination and whatnot, I don’t know, this is just a presumptuous and rhetorical rant!
BUT yeah! This was a parent shoving their kids achievement into anyone who was, unfortunately, behind them in traffic
And I found it hard to believe if anyone in the world would care
Do they expect someone to just be walking by and be like, (Highly exaggerated GASP)
Congratulations on being a parent to your son. You should be very proud,
“Oh my God,”
Thank you the stranger in the supermarket parking lot.
I spent $20 on this sticker. It’s about damn time someone noticed.”
I mean congratulations to your kid of course for his or her or their hard work and being in debt
But I didn’t care. Should have saved that $20
unless they changed the world by finding the cure for cancer
or they invented a teleportation device at which
They should have probably had a sticker that read,
“Mother of cancer destroyer”, or,
“Mother of the reason your long-distance relationship is now easy”
但是 我见到它的方式 读起来就像是人们初次见面时的自我介绍
But, the way I saw it, I read it as if it was how they introduced themselves when they first meet people.
“Hello, I’m Dominic.”
“Dominic 很高兴见到你 我是斯坦福校友的母亲”
“Dominic, pleasure to meet you. Mother of a Stanford Alumni.”
“Shut the f*** up!”
They might as well have stuck on a dick pic on their car! (Oh my)
I mean of course it’s more obscene, and I guess it wouldn’t make sense if they were a mother
但是这确实像在说“嘿 孩子 看看那儿 呵呵呵”
But, it’s like they’re going, “Yea boi, look at dat, HEHEHE.”
“好吧 祝贺你的大狗屎 但是没有人问过……”
“Okay, congrats on your huge dung, but NO ONE asked…”
I’m not discouraging parents from being proud of their kids
我想说的 难道这不是我们去学校学习一半的人完全不感兴趣的东西的原因吗 哈哈 哈哈
I mean, isn’t that the reason why half of us went to school for things we’re not fully passionate about, haha haha.
但是对 不是的 要骄傲 但要冷静 你知道吗？
But yeah, no. Be proud, but calm down about it. You know?
他们毕业了 他们成功了 很酷
They graduated, they made it, cool.
Throw a celebration, show them personally that you were proud of them!
你不必到处走对每个人说“嘿 在这儿 这个孩子在这儿呢
You don’t have to go around clarifying to everyone that “Hey, this, this kid right here,
This university graduate,
这位硕士学位获得者 对 是我的孩子
This Master’s degree owner, yeah, I made him.
He came out of me.” (What about Dad?)
“Partial credit.” (There he is)
I’m sure they wanted to make you proud, but they probably didn’t intend for you to shove it down everyone’s throat.
And if they did then okay, I guess their do-she-pride runs in the family.
To me, personally,
Kind of makes it seem like that’s all your kid is to you.
Again, a presumptuous rant.
I just feel like parents need to chill a little bit with the career pressures on their kid,
If you push them to pursue a path that was for their own good,
Then push for that cause.
Don’t push for your own pride.
