Dear Teenager

We might have been over this before, but just to recap:

It is your turn to dry the dishes.  We both know you are perfectly capable of this simple task.

When I come into the kitchen and watch you place dripping dishes into the cupboard using the explanation "I couldn't find the drying cloth"  is not going to be acceptable.  TO ANYONE.

Getting angry AT ME when I require you to pull the wet dishes out of the assorted cupboards and actually DRY them because my expecations are "totally unreasonable" is not going to earn you bonus points.

Your future wife will one day thank me for being "so totally mean and RUINING your life".

Love,

Mom

PS  You have the art of a pout down to a science. I am sure there is a future in dramatic arts for you.

I'm living with the same nonsense. Except that my two are not even teenagers yet! I'm using your future wife line from now on--but changing it to future husband.
