"I've been out at work all day while you've been lying around doing nothing."

Sound familiar? The old folks might help us out, but don't they let us know about it. If these phrases sound all too familiar, then why not try your hand at a round of #ParentBingo? At the rate your parents grumble, you'll have a full card in no time.
