My parents just had me so I could scrub their sinks and toilets. Basically I was child labor, brought into the world to do all their dirty work. At least that’s what I thought when I was your age.

Calling all second born children. Does this scene sound familiar?
OLDER SIBLING: Hey, Mom and Dad. I microwaved a Hot Pocket all by myself.
MOM: (oohing and ahhing). Wow, my amazing first born child, that is so wonderful. You're the smartest child in the entire world.
DAD: You didn't burn down the house or anything. Let me grab my phone and take a video to share with all my friends.
YOU: Hey guys, I just found a cure for cancer.
PARENTS: Not now. Can't you see we're busy praising our first born for this amazing accomplishment?
YOU: But I'm about to save millions of lives.
PARENTS: But did you microwave a Hot Pocket? Without ANY help?
