PARENTS of young adults across Britain have been acting sheepishly this week, it has been confirmed.
Their actions have become more and more furtive as the week has progressed, leaving the younger demographic puzzled and suspicious.
No cause has been identified but those in their first decade of voting eligibility report receiving apologetic smiles and small, inexpensive gifts.
Engineer Tom Logan said: “The last time dad was acting like this was just before he decided to spend my university savings on a conservatory. I distinctly remember him being really nice, but also acting guilty as sin.”
Nikki Hollis said: “Mum and dad have been behaving pretty strangely this week.
“They’re normally keen for me to get up and look for a zero hours job on Thursdays, but this week they’ve bought me twelve beers and said I should stay in bed.”
