When You’re A Grown-Ass Adult But Still Need Your Parents


At some point when you weren’t paying attention, it happened: You grew up. Moved out. Started paying your own bills and crying about having to pay your own bills. But just because you’re grown doesn’t mean you don’t still need mami and papi, right?

1. Cooking

Sure, you can try following a casserole recipe or somehow burn water while trying to make a grilled cheese sandwich (don’t ask), but when you want to know how to do real cooking — the kind that doesn’t use any measurements at all — you gotta call up ma or pa (or even abuela) to get it right.

2. Laundry

There’s no feeling quite like standing face-to-face with a washing machine in a giant laundromat and realizing you have no idea how your mom managed to make your clothes smell like a field of violets and yet your laundry now comes out feeling like cardboard and somehow still stained.

Or any car help, really. Don’t call Triple A; call mom and pop.

Broken shower? Don’t call a plumber; dial up mom and dad, and learn how to fashion a whole new shower head out of a soda bottle and two band-aids.

5. Balancing Money

Your parents had coupons for coupons and reused the same plastic bag for 15 years. And yet here you are scraping together couch change to try and pay for ramen noodles. Learn from them. Let them teach you their frugal ways.

6. Cleaning Anything and Everything

Because your mom knew how to make a thimbleful of dish soap last for decades, and your dad has a trick for getting blood out of any fabric. (Don’t ask how he discovered it.)

7. Dealing with Sickness

At no point do you need your parents most, even as an adult, than when you’re sick and just want them to hold you and feed you sopita and Sprite.

8. Dealing with People


Your parents know how to deal with comemierdas better than anyone else. Dealing with an ex? A one-sided crush? A difficult boss? A rowdy neighbor? Ask you parents. They’ve been through the same thing, 17 times over.

9. Making Up Any Excuse, Just To Hear Their Voices

Are Trump's Small Hands The Reason He Slanders Latinos?


Are Trump’s Small Hands The Reason He Slanders Latinos?

Trump has been called small minded when it comes to things like immigration, bankruptcy, civil rights, gender rights, educational fraud, etc., but only recently has the smallness of his hands been called into question. The Americans Against Insecure Billionaires with Tiny Hands PAC has demanded that the candidate submit his hands to a measurement to prove that he is physically fit to run the country. Trump, to this point, has refused. While this might sound like a joke, the implications are astounding. While Trump has gone around wagging his finger at undocumented workers, it is he who has been traipsing around this great nation with undocumented hands.

And now it all makes sense. Trump’s fear of Latinos comes from a deep-rooted fear that our culture will expose the world to the true diminutive stature of his hands. Let’s take a look at a few examples.

Guayabera Shirt And Its Many Pockets

In the wild, pockets are the natural enemy of small hands. So, it’s probably this guayabera shirt here that brings out the most anger in Trump. Maybe having deep pockets and tiny hands explains why Trump is so bad with money?

Donald Trump never drinks. Maybe that’s because the size of his hands makes it impossible for him to grasp any bottle with confidence. Any time he sees a party-sized bottle of tequila, it must send him into a rage.

Talking With Your Hands


In my family, everyone talks with their hands. If Donald Trump were to talk with his, it would only come out as a whisper. No one would be able to hear him over the shrieks of my Tía after her fourth drink, which she holds with her normal-sized hands.

Pinky Rings

Popular among all of my uncles and Hector Lavoe, Trump can only wear these as bracelets. Surely this must be what fuels his anger towards Latinos.

The Phrase ‘Mano a Mano’

For someone who likes to anger so many people, it seems weird that he should have so many body guards. Maybe that’s because if he were to ever go hand to hand with someone, it would expose the fact that he has micro hands.

Mexican Food

I have normal-sized hands, and I’m barely able to eat Mexican food without making a mess. Notice he’s using silverware. That’s because his miniature hands (obviously Photoshopped in this pic) are not dexterous enough negotiate his dinner.

The Chihuahua

It could be that Trump’s anger towards Latinos stems from the chihuahua. It’s puny size clearly mocks Trump’s infant-sized hands.

Praying Hands

Here we see two things that threaten Trump: women and normal-sized hands. Maybe this is why Trump can’t tell the truth. His hands are so small that placing them on the bible doesn’t count as an actual oath.
