Today my sister and I fought with our parents in public. It was heated and loud and probably necessary. Our parents have such a different travel style to us- they like things planned to the minutest of details and we’re more flexible and don’t care as much when things don’t go to plan. The tension had been building all day and it finally broke, right in front of the Merlion haha. The other tourists there trying to innocently take some nice photos got a bit of a show.
I wonder if it’s a generational thing or if it’s just specific to our parents- are older people in general just more inflexible? Or is it that our parents have deep anxiety and need to control everything?
