Realizing that you've become your parents is one of the scariest things about being an adult. Whether that be good or bad, that moment you discover that you've gained your parents' morals and traits is a huge one- one that may not be so welcome.

itsDaco asked: What's the most "I'm turning into my parents" moment for you?

Spooky.

"Sometimes I will say certain words and I'll turn around because I thought my mom said something. It's really scary how me and her share 98% of seemingly random idiosyncrasies.

We both talk to ourselves. Full on 45 minute conversations with ourselves

We both do this counting this when some of the numbers turn breathy as we count

We both shake our heads and point our fingers the EXACT same way when we're yelling. Sometimes I'll stop mid fight because I can see my mom making the exact same motions and it freaks me out."

Mom's always have the best intuition.

"My mom used to find things for us in a minute after we had been looking for hours. My siblings and dad sometimes lose things and ask me to help because "I always find it magically"....I'm actually very excited about the mom touch to finding things."

Not the worst thing to have.

"I started enjoying looking at grocery ads for discounts and have 3 discount cards."

No BS here.

"I repeat stories. Every time I go home to visit, I'll hear things from my dad that he's either told me by phone already or stories I've heard 100 times. I found that I have also started telling people about stories from my past that I've already told them.

Convenient that I don't make up bs, or I'd have to remember all my bs."

As long as the restaurant isn't crowded.

"So I'm at IHOP one day, already finished with breakfast, on my second cup of coffee, and the waiter comes with the bill. As I pull out my debit card to pay it, I put my wallet away and think to myself, "Just let me sit here and enjoy my coffee..."

Which is a phrase that my mother has used so many times at breakfast that she could patent it. I'll admit it does feel nice to just relax and enjoy it instead of rushing out the door as soon as you're done. Now it's something I do routinely."

Grown-up taste buds.

"Over the course of college, I went from milk and sugar in my coffee to straight black with an espresso shot. I went from ketchup on a lot of things to simply salt and pepper. The sweet tooth turned into a salty/savory tooth."

Not wrong.

"The first time I told my kids to "shut the door, we aren't heating the outside!"

I finally get why they said it too. It costs money to heat/cool the house!"

ratacid

Oof.

Giphy

"I wake up, no alarm, everyday at 4am to get ready for work. Just sit up like clockwork at 4, never thought I would get to this point."

Google.com

"I say the names of things I see while in the car. Like: "Oh, a Burger King" and "hmmm a new Wawa. Interesting". My mom does this and it used to drive me nuts when I was younger.

My husband actually types google.com into the search bar, even though our default search engine is google. It's a classic dad move."

pupperfan00

That's kinda nice.

"While driving in my car, I will put my arm out to protect the passenger if I suddenly stop...even though they are wearing a seat belt....just like my mom.

As the passenger in the front seat, I will step on the brake, even though there is no pedal. The old fake brake, just like my mom does!"

Your home should be sanctuary, which is to say that we hope that nothing bad ever happens once we move in. Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out that way, and sometimes things happen that unnerve the hell out of us.

Is there anything more creepy than being alone at home... only to get the feeling that you're not alone at all? What if you were being watched?! It's the stuff of nightmares, isn't it? And I haven't even touched on the possibility of paranormal activity yet...

People Describe The Moment They Realized They've Been Doing Something Wrong For Years

It can be very embarrassing when you pronounce words wrong. Let's face it, the English language is super complicated, especially if you're learning it for the first time. You can't always trust yourself to pronounce things phonetically either because of all the different rules!

Recently, a relative pronounced the word "epitome" like "epi-tome." They were embarrassed when I corrected them. I told them that it wasn't a big deal, though they did note that they love that word, have used it for a long time, and that no one corrected them until that moment...

Ouch.
