My Life is a Gender Stereotype-Reinforcing Sitcom

I walked in on my dad assembling two umbrella strollers for the boys so that we didn’t have to lug the MegaStroller around the block. He struggled trying to get the damned things to unfold. He struggled for many minutes. Many. Finally…

Me: Dad, did you read the directions?

Dad: (Gives me dirty look) No. There are no directions.  (Continues wrestling with strollers)

Me: What’s that in the back pocket of the stroller?

Dad: Directions.

Three minutes later the strollers were assembled.
