MOMS SAY THE DARNDEST THINGS

I've grown up as a Momma's boy. During my teenage years, my mom was always protective about me, and always telling me what to do and what not to do. But I never complained. I kinda liked the attention and the thought that someone cared so much about me.

Today, I'm in my early thirties. I became a Father of a handsome lil boy this November. But I realise that I'm still Momma's boy (or so she thinks). She still says things to me that she would when I was a teenager. Some of these things are really embarassing, especially when said in public.

The following are some things that, although some bystanders might go "aww" listening to, moms should NEVER EVER say to their grown-up 'kids' in public:-


  • In front of a guest whom you've already greeted - "Did you say hello to Uncle?"
  • Before you sit down for breakfast - "Did you brush your teeth?"
  • When you're sitting among friends in a casual setting - "Comb your hair"
  • At dinner time during a wedding reception - "ENOUGH!!! Don't eat more! You'll become more fat."
  • At a New Years' party, in front of a friend of hers - "Did you wish Aunty Happy New Year?"
  • At lunch with relatives - "Wash your hands before eating."
  • While you're talking to your bachelor friend on the phone, she might exclaim in a not-so-discreet tone - "Is that Rohan on the line? Why isn't he getting married??"
  • When you're struggling with a runny nose at a get-together - "Don't sniff like that! Go blow your nose!"
  • Anywhere there's half the human race gathered - "Come ___________!" (fill in the blanks with the most embarassing pet-name that your mom calls you by.

Has anyone been through worse? Awaiting your comments. Maybe it'll make me feel better :p

Cheers

  1. Hahahaha... yes mine does things too! Some years back i used to ask her if she will scold me in the same manner when I will grow old, "ofcourse "she said, "You will always be under my hand." I am 30, and things are still same with a lil variations :-)) We both keep on exchanging mother daughter roles, and i still get scoldings on not drinking milk....

  12. hahahaha :D Poor Guys..We can never grow up for our Moms..Congratz for the baby :)

    My mom's most embarassing name of me is PUCHKU :P

    ReplyDelete
  13. That is how moms are. But at least then you are used to it. It gets worse when your mom-in-law tries to patronize you just because your are her child's husband.

    1. Haha. Moms get obsessed about about our susus and cacas when theyre dealing with small kids. I guess it even during adulthood, as your experience suggests :P

      Chintu? I thought Chintu was a boy name. Cute nevertheless :)

  15. I guess no one can compete with moms on this one!

    For ME the most embarrassing one was when i was standing in front of my favorite teacher at the test centre for my boards exam, and my mom was like 'sara syllabus theek se pad liya na, beta?'
    And I was like "mom! Ofcourse! That is not a question you can ask here. of course i have." i took it as an offence, that she doubted if i have covered the whole syllabus!
    Anywayz i just laugh at it now with my mom :D

    and the pet names... well lets not even go there. she makes up a new one alwayz!!! And they are not just chunnu munnu, they are pretty creepy yet damn funny

  16. Hehe. That was cute, actually!

  26. I was worried that I may be making my children 'momma boy" or 'momma girl', but after reading your post, I am assured that I am not. I haven't even one of those sentences ever in my life! In fact, some of those sentences have been used on me by my kids. LOL.
