7. We’ll See
One person shared, “We’ll see, which means, ‘No, but this way, you can’t argue about it.’ I always hated this when I was a kid.”
“Not to be confused with ‘I’ll think about it,’ which usually is a yes depending on how many siblings you can get to plead with you. The likelihood also went way up if you had a friend with you,” another suggested.
6. Put On a Sweater
“Me: I’m cold. Mom: Go put on a sweater,” someone replied. Another added, “Oh gosh, my mom is like that! She’s always cold, so if she’s cold, everyone is cold!” A third said, “Me when I ask my mom to increase the heat via the thermostat.”
5. Do You Know or Remember So and So?

“She held you once when you were two months old. – Meanwhile, you’re in your early 20s, and it feels like this is the first time you’ve seen this person in your life! Hello, every holiday party.
4. Have You Looked for It?
“When you lose something, there are three questions:
- Have you tried looking for it?
- Have you looked everywhere?
- Well, it didn’t just get up and walk away.
“I credit George Carlin for all of these.” Another added, “And when it turns up, she says something like ‘It’s always in the last place you look.’ Like, well, no, duh, mom. That’s always the truth.”
3. Stay In Line
“When at the billing counter, every mom has the maternal instinct to say – “Stay in the line. I need to grab a few more things,” one user confessed. “The anxiety that falls afterward. What am I supposed to do if the groceries get to the end? How??? I am eight, and I have no money,” another explained.
“My mom did this the other way around. Whenever she’d forgotten something, she just sent me to grab it,” a third person replied. Finally, someone joked, “Nope, that’s the wrong marmalade. Bring the one with the blonde farmer on the sticker.”
2. Call Or Text Me
“How is this not number one? Please call me or text me when you get there,” one user stated. Many people agreed before one shared, “I’m 31. My grandmother continuously checks the weather on my work days in the winter.”
“Even if she’s in Aruba (I’m in NY), the weather is not a problem for her, and she will have me text her when I arrive at work/home safely and describe the road conditions to her.”
1. Regarding Friends
One user shared, “Me: mentions a friend of the opposite gender Mom: Is she pretty?” Another elaborated, “Or as a gay guy! Me: mentions any of my friends. Mom: Is he gay? Me: No, he’s just a friend. Mom: Okay, I was just wondering. Are you sure? Me: Yes, mom. 95% of guys are not gay.”
