My dad asked me to make him a sandwich the other day…

 I don’t really like making sandwiches for my family members who can make their own sandwiches because 1. It’s not fun 2. I’m lazy 

 I don’t like making sandwiches very much 

 My dad likes to talk while he eats and ruins the TV show that we were watching 

 Sometimes I just don’t want to be bothered with dealing with them 

The list goes on…

So anyways, I didn’t really want to make the sandwich

 so I told him his sandwich was in the microwave for him. And he said back “Is it heated up?”  

I said “um…well the microwave is heating it up…so yes.”

And he was like “Well can you check if it’s warm or not?”

And then I couldn’t resist it anymore and said sarcastically,

 “Okay dad haha” So then I took it out of the microwave because at that point

 I didn’t want to deal with this conversation any longer.

 And then I laughed out loud because he looked so serious!
