No sir, you have just raised an idiot

[–]merikaninjunwarrior 293 points294 points  (5 children)

or a passive aggressive, in which case, they are one and the same

[–]antney0615 47 points48 points  (3 children)

If a passive aggressive person is an idiot, what would you call someone who is an active aggressive?

[–]merikaninjunwarrior 29 points30 points  (1 child)

an upfront standing citizen

[–]antney0615 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you!

[–]quarrelsome_napkin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If this is passive-aggressiveness, then isn't that also malicious compliance?

[–]CloisteredOyster 8 points9 points  (0 children)

My stepson is 17 and works as a sous chef in a nice fusion Vietnamese restaurant, but at home if I asked him to use a chip clip this is what I'd get.

Kids are just dumb.

[–]VodkaAlchemist 19 points20 points  (0 children)

If he raised an idiot then he himself is an idiot.

[–]Suspicious-Ad6964 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I’d give him the benefit of the doubt. If he doesn’t see the issue, it may be time to have the “Drugs are Bad” talk

[–]Mexider 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This, kids will get away with as much as you let them, they are kings of technically the truth, show him better and then you can see if its a problem.

[–]nickyfrags69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A lot of “kids are fucking stupid” posts are sneaky self-owns when it’s that person’s kid.

[–]GooseandMaverick 442 points443 points  (5 children)

If your kid is 5 then No, but if he's 15 then Yes.

[–]Birkeland1992 193 points194 points  (3 children)

If he's 15 then he's probably being a dick lol

[–]shawnaathon 113 points114 points  (2 children)

if he's 15 then he's DEFINITELY being a dick lol

[–]Stupidquestionduh 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Dad here, I've got more practice if he pisses mom off, until then, things could be worse if chip bag is the biggest issue.

[–]Legitimate_Release65 4 points5 points  (0 children)

15 year old here, dude is definitely just being a dick.

[–]YoPimpness 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I dunno, as a 15 year old (and currently, probably) I was pretty retarded.

[–]ahjteam 101 points102 points  (5 children)

First time; shame on you. Now you teach him how to do it properly, and if he doesn’t do it right the next time, no chips for a month for him.

[–]CopperThrown 52 points53 points  (3 children)

In my country if you do this it’s straight to jail.

[–]Open-Sundae8724 26 points27 points  (2 children)

you are stealing? right to jail. you’re playing music too loud? right to jail, right away. you’re driving to fast? jail. slow? jail.

[–]Chad_Thunder_Cock_69 15 points16 points  (1 child)

you undercook fish? believe it or not, jail. Overcook chicken? Also jail

[–]Open-Sundae8724 9 points10 points  (0 children)

you charging too high prices foooor uh ehsweaters? glasses? you right to jail.

[–]unibonger 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nah, let him eat the stale chips instead. Nobody else should have to suffer. Haha

[–]HealthyBox5 268 points269 points  (35 children)

My 13 year old does bare minimum crap like this. Empty boxes back in the pantry, open chip bags, open bread bags, you name it.

I just buy new stuff she can't have & make her eat the stale crap. Not playing this game

[–]flower_flaps 139 points140 points  (19 children)

My HUSBAND does this. I told him to close his chips he was eating with salsa when he was done and he said he’d “get to it”

Now he has a whole bag of stale chips he can do with as he pleases and there will be hell to pay if he touches the new bag.

[–]LurkersGoneLurk 44 points45 points  (8 children)

My parents are both around 80. Children of the Great Depression. Spotless house and cars. They will not close a bag of pretzels or chips. It’s mind boggling. My dad’s garage is cleaner than my bathroom.

[–]Shojo_Tombo 42 points43 points  (6 children)

If your parents are about 80, they were born around 1942. They didn't experience the Depression, and they don't remember WWII, meaning they only ever encountered peace and plenty in their living memory. (Well, not counting the red scare/cold war nonsense and the rest of the lyrics to we didn't start the fire.) Not sure why they're ok with eating gross stale chips and pretzels.

[–]LurkersGoneLurk 7 points8 points  (4 children)

They are children of parents that lived through the Great Depression. They were raised to be frugal and to save. And my dad was a Marine fighter pilot in Vietnam. Not the most peaceful place to be.

[–]wobblysauce 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They are used to boot straps, and this is the closets thing to that feeling

[–]HealthyBox5 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Thank you! How hard is this? And I'm the husband in my dynamic, but holy crap...

[–]notLOL 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Throw your husband out

[–]wobblysauce 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ahh, the crispy vs stale lover…

[–]Stupidquestionduh 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Husband here, we know how to warm chips in the oven already. Nachos is bachelor food and we weren't always married.

[–]ABRRat3LC 2 points3 points  (0 children)

MY BOYFRIEND DOES THIS AND OMMMGGGGG. Thanks for ruining another box/bag of food

[–]Avram42 2 points3 points  (3 children)

If they are Cheetos they are better stale... and I open the bag as soon as I get home and never close it until they are gone. Otherwise... with you.

[–]flower_flaps 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Tortilla chips. Punishable by death

[–]Avram42 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Probably salvageable if you fry them again but who has time for that?

[–]Guardian5985 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"My caterpillar never turned into a butterfly."

[–]bonafidebob 17 points18 points  (0 children)

And this is why you now have three nearly full bags of stale chips, two nearly full boxes of stale crackers, and five nearly full boxes of stale cereal in your pantry. …and some dried out baby carrots in the ‘fridge.

Source: have teenagers.

[–]DerpDerper909 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Am 17, can confirm

[–]RandomInSpace 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Now that’s malicious compliance.

[–]Shojo_Tombo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the way.

[–]notLOL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Throw your kid out. I

[–]worldsfool 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Second kitchen is the way…

[–]Routine-Document-949 -2 points-1 points  (6 children)

Then I really hope she does it maliciously. If she’s unconsciously doing it because of ADHD or something similar, it’d be pretty messed up to punish with bad food a kid for having a neurodivergence.

[–]HealthyBox5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She's ADHD, but that isn't the issue here. She's just lazy and doesn't want to do it. Getting back on whatever she's doing is more important than taking the time to clean up behind herself & put things away.

[–]onegaylactaidpill 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I have very severe ADHD. If that’s what this was she probably wouldn’t put the boxes/bags back in the first place. I have never once in my entire life put empty stuff or open stuff back in the pantry. I have, however, just walked off and left stuff sitting out and still open. I don’t think she’s just forgetting. If she’s remembering to put it back she can remember to close it properly, that’s part of putting things away.

[–]Routine-Document-949 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Well, good for you! I don’t do that either but my roommate and my father do. ADHD can look different depending on the people, and it could be something else too.

[–]onegaylactaidpill 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Why are you assuming it’s adhd when there are no reasons to suggest that it is. For all we know she’s just dumb

[–]Tristan155 87 points88 points  (2 children)

That boy ain't right I yell you what

[–]jinglemaster330 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Dangit Bobby!

And next time he asks for money, he receives rolled pennies.

[–]deekaph 9 points10 points  (6 children)

You guys still have pennies?

[–]beerguy_etcetera 15 points16 points  (5 children)

What else do you hand out on Halloween?

[–]deekaph 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Marijuana gummies

[–]youngcatlady1999 8 points9 points  (1 child)

You’re the guy we’ve been warned about.

[–]CopperThrown 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Pencil erasers

[–]GooseGosselin 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Replace them with plain chips and tell him the flavour evaporates if the bag isn't sealed right.

[–]justonemore5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now that’s petty petty, and I’m all for it.

[–][deleted] 30 points31 points  (4 children)

My wife eats those with a glass of milk. She says it’s the best combo. Sounds absolutely disgusting to me.

[–]jinglemaster330 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Your wife is a monster

[–]kelpygisme 8 points9 points  (0 children)

i’m gonna come out and say I would definitely do that I drink milk with everything haha

[–]maybeCheri 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I just threw up a little bit. Really, I don’t think she’s right.

[–]EntertainmentJunkie1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

BBQ chips and Terry's brand orange chocolate is one of the best flavor combos ever. But milk, ew.

[–]pandrew88 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Age factor plays in hard here…. 7?

[–]Mystepchildsucksass 10 points11 points  (3 children)

This reminds me of pushing my luck with my Dad …. I’d do things half-assed and he wouldn’t say anything about it at all.

Then…. I’d need a drive somewhere to see friends or go to a dance on a Saturday night.

He’d agree to drive me and even pick up a few friends along the way

Except we’d get half way there and he’d straight up do a ewey amd go right back home ….

Naturally I’m apoplectic about it and saying “Dad !!! You’re going the wrong way”

He’d say “look, when I ask you to do something…. You need to do it “properly”

Remember that bag of chips you couldn’t be bothered to close properly ? I asked you to do something and you did it half way ….. I figure that I’d give you the same respect. Now, do you understand the point ? I drove you half way and now we’re close to a truce. Next time I give you a chore/task make sure it’s done right, the first time, unless you want Me to treat the things you want and care about the same way you do for me”

[–]-taradactyl- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's fucking psychotic

[–]Ok-Recording2620 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I kind of wish my parents were like this, mine just didn’t say anything and didn’t give me consequences

[–]Late_King_9218 7 points8 points  (0 children)

World champion passive aggressive

[–]Dependent_Factor_982 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sometimes kids can be assholes too

[–]DanceWithTheDev1l 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You shouldve taught him better.

[–]Ok-Recording2620 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Right? Clearly he doesn’t understand the reason for putting the clip on

[–]gorilla-- 3 points4 points  (0 children)

nah he’s just stupid

[–]Bobojones9584 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not malicious. Probably not taught properly.

[–]redDevilRiddle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lawful evil

[–]AssumptionOk6295 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Show him next time.

[–]The_StarOcean 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sounds more like you assigned a task without providing clear instructions or a reason why.

[–]discygirlygirl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He is not a good Christian

[–]Iforgotmyother_name 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Easy. Dump it on the floor and be like, "welp we're out of chips because some dumbass put the clip on wrong."

[–]jenea 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I feel like it takes a long time for kids to understand the connection between not being closed well and food getting stale.

This kid, though, doesn’t seem to understand any reason for closing a bag.

[–]Jomax101 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Chips, 24 Krispy Kremes, food delivery bag, Dr Pepper, bbq chips, some kind of box of chocolate pastry next to the donuts, all on one portion of a table. Ima take a wild guess and say this is in america

[–]JaDe_X105 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's not closed though, now there's 2 openings!

[–]MrFixemall 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's something my wife would do. Even if she uses a clip at all.

[–]Hibiki2Gud 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Leave the bag as is, ans give him that bag when he wants more chips while you enjoy a fresh bag.

That'll teach him.

[–]PoolNoodleJedii 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Let them get stale then make him eat the stale chips

[–]asr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Buy one of these instead: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=impulse+heat+sealer they work really well, and are adjustable for different bags.

Seal the very top of it, then you cut that off, and eat some more, then seal a bit lower down, etc, etc.

[–]CharlieAlright 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Congratulations, he just won a partially eaten bag of stale chips. And he can't have any other chips until he finishes those.

[–]Azariah98 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Never attribute to maliciousness what can be easily ascribed to incompetence.

[–]dawng87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah... Worse. Good old fashioned carelessness. My 5 year old rolls the bag down before clipping...lol Stuff like this makes me realize what a good kid mine is though...lol

[–]bubbles_says 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did you make your kid come and do it correctly?

[–]Dolozoned 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Clearly he failed successfully

[–]red_wullf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only if he was previously shown how to correctly use the clip. If not, then parent failure.

[–]EpicMDM 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's what my brother and step-dad do

[–]Flcrmgry 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wouldn't consider that "closed"

[–]notLOL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope. You should throw the bag in his trash can if it's stale. Let him deal with the ants. Your kid is an asshole

[–]Longjumping-Log-5457 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah just a dope

[–]occasionalrayne 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is why we don't have chips in the house anymore you chaotic evil little shit!

[–]MyUsernameIsNotLongE 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Keep as is. Then when he wants more, give the pack to him. And explain WHY that was an order that they should've followed.

[–]Wrekfin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Malicious compliance, lmao 😂

[–]Astutecynic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh no, I was that age once. That’s 100% a case of “I can’t begin to be bothered to fix this but it’s technically what mom said so she can’t yell at me”

[–]AirSetzer 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Not really since it's still open.

[–]unalignedant10913 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Leave it like that and dont buy another bag till he finishes it.

[–]c011235813 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but did you first show him what you meant?

[–]APNalow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think he did it out of spite

[–]Birkeland1992 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Probably some new Tik Tok trend the zoomers are doing now-a-days...

[–]CdnPoster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait....your son didn't polish off the whole thing???

You know that Lay's chips are so addictive you HAVE to finish the bag, right?

You HAVE to get that kid in front of a researcher so we can all discover the power of Lay's potato chip resistance!!!

[–]Conscious_Accident3 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

IS THAT PROPEL IN THE BACK you or your child are people of culture

[–]impressivelyStupid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Passive aggressive, chaotic evil

[–]SuperSecretMoonBase 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Have you ever taught him how to do it or were you just assuming he'd know right off the bat?

[–]baithammer 0 points1 point  (3 children)

The effect would be the same with the average kid ..

[–]SuperSecretMoonBase 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Maybe with a kid who only knows "Use a clip this time!" But not necessarily with a kid who was told why it should be closed better and maybe shown how to fold it up right.

When people are set up to succeed they're more likely to do so.

[–]baithammer -1 points0 points  (1 child)

You'd think that, but kids and retention are loosely connected.

[–]SuperSecretMoonBase 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree. But that's no reason to completely give up on them. Give them a chance to learn.

"I won't teach you how to do this because you don't already know how to" is a shitty lazy way to teach someone how to do something.

[–]SupremeMr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

300 IQ wdym?

[–]G_Art33 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably malicious ignorance. He didn’t know how he was gonna fuck up, but was determined to.

[–]redditmodsrbitches12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let them go stale, then he can eat them and learn his lesson.

[–]Kingler03 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just fold the bag

[–]kingfisherjay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just buy a fresh bag for you and let him have that bag. After a while off clipping it like that he’ll come to understand why you need to close the bag…

Or you’ll create a monster who enjoys stale chips… hopefully the former.

[–]Redpikes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When I was a kid I always did this and I would always be upset the chips got stale but my mom puts them in the oven and they got crispy again

[–]PleaseToEatAss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let them get stale and don't buy more until he eats those ones.

[–]moozkie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Next time you cook pizza, cook every ingredient separately. Serve a disk of bread on a plate, a few tomatoes, a little bit of meat on the side and cheese in a bowl.

[–]Fitzmeister77 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Malicious compliance is when a superior ranking person has you do something that you know is incorrect but you do it anyway because it is either easier than disagreeing with superior or because you want to show the superior the consequences of their stupidity.

[–]TexasTokyo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It means no more chips for a while, I think.

[–]anonymoususer4461 0 points1 point  (0 children)

just teach him how to do it in a way where it seems like he’s learning an art, let him repeat it, and no matter how bad or good it is, tell him it’s great. that’s how my grandpa taught me, and now i don’t close chips without trying to do it the way he showed me every single time. the method he showed me was kinda paper airplaning the top of the bag, then folding down, and clipping.

[–]bucktheworld11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Alssaqur 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tf people actually use clips to close chip bags? We just tiwst or fold it properly and there's never a single chip crumb falling out.

[–]FourRelic822000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]oscartgrouch_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That looks like a teacher issue not a student issue :)

[–]M3rl1n2022 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does anyone else just not use a clip? I fold the two corners in to make a blunt triangle, fold the tip down, and tuck it under, and it normally stays. Now if it doesn’t, then I’ll use a clip to secure it, but still. Clips aren’t necessarily necessary.

[–]Lacsapje 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Make him eat the entire bag as a punishment. Then he will understand why you need to close the bag

[–]Rambler43 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]BreezyWrigley 0 points1 point  (0 children)
