A COUPLE do not know what they did wrong in raising their daughter for her to have opinions which diverge from their own.
Roy and Margaret Hobbs are appalled to witness their daughter Charlotte growing into a woman who contradicts them to an upsetting degree.
Mr Hobbs said: “Who does she think she is, showing off her critical thinking skills? I didn’t put her through university just so she could tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about.
“In this house, we’ve always believed that unions are communism and you can’t trust a Frenchman. Now she’s telling me that’s wrong? Where the hell did that come from?”
Mother Margaret agreed: “It’s such a shame to see my sweet little daughter thinking independently. We raised her better than that.”
“You feed her, provide her with a home, give her love, and then she says this foreigner she’s dating isn’t a foreigner because he was born here and so were his parents and his grandparents? It’s ignorant.”
Daughter Charlotte Hobbs said: “It’s true that voicing intelligent, thought-through opinions isn’t the way I was brought up. As I’m reminded whenever I go home.”
