If You Grew Up In A Latino Household, You Know These Items Were Never Used For Their Main Purpose

We’ve probably all searched a thing or two in Urban Dictionary to find out what the slang definition is for something. In our culture, there are so many things that have a double meaning, that’s why we created our own version of a slang dictionary with household items. We’re sure a few of these will take you back to your childhood…

When you look up the definition of an oven, you might find something along the lines of: “a kitchen appliance used for cooking and baking.” BUT, in a Latino household, an oven has quite a different meaning…

You probably rarely used your mom’s oven to bake because it was already being used… as a storage bin. When was the last time you actually used the oven to bake something?

Even the kitchen sink, which is meant to wash dishes, is actually used by Latino parents to wash something, or someone else…

How many of you have pictures of you like the one above? Your mom probably thought you were exactly like washing a dish, except that this dish cries, moves and splashes water at you.

And when it comes to food containers, such as butter, you already know it’s never butter.

If you had 15 butter containers in your fridge and were looking for actual butter, GOOD LUCK.

Same goes for this Doña María Mole, which you guessed it, also isn’t mole.

Pretty much any food product that came in a glass container, turned into some sort of cup or Mickey Mouse Tupperware.

So if you ever think that these food items have just one purpose, think again…

You were trained to use a tortilla as an eating utensil. This is exactly why some meals are almost impossible to eat without a couple tortillas.

Because even something as small and delicate as an egg, has a much larger and powerful purpose.

Who knew eggs had so much power, like the power to conquer evil.

And the same goes for quince centerpieces, which might seem harmless, but can lead to drama and disaster.

If you had more tías than centerpieces, you were asking for trouble.

By now you’ve probably realizing how deceiving Latino household items really are.

Because if you’re Latino, you know sandals are not just cute summer shoes…HA.

And while all of these different definitions might make things a bit confusing…

This is actually genius. Wastes a bunch of energy, but genius idea nonetheless.

…you can also learn A TON from them.

You couldn’t let kids use the water hose for the entire day, that would defeat the purpose of saving money. But using a hose to cool down during summer days didn’t have a price.

This Latina Mom Forces Dog To Pick Up Its Own Poop

This Latina Mom Forces Dog To Pick Up Its Own Poop

@raquel___r / Twitter

Latina moms aren’t about animal life. They’ve told you a million times, why would they want an animal in the house who will undoubtedly destroy the yard, poop all over the place, and ultimately end up having to clean up after them? Because as much as you declare that you will clean up after the pet, you never actually get around to doing it. It makes no sense for an animal to take up space, be a burden on the household, and cost extra money that you don’t have. Yes, we know, no pets in the house. We also know that moms have a sweet spot for the vulnerable. So let’s just say you bring a dog or cat home, there’s no way in hell your mom will throw it out on the street (we hope not anyway). They will, however, demand, the house remains clean at all times no matter what. Case in point.

This little doggy named Maxie accidentally left his poop on the couch and mama was not too pleased.

Her daughter Raquel caught the whole thing on her cell and her mom is going off on their dog Maxie. “Para que no lo vuela hacer,” she said as she’s making the dog pick up paper towels with both paws and carefully pick up the poop without ever once getting it on her own hands. So brilliant, and yet how did she manage to do that? We’re so impressed.

You can hear Raquel laughing the entire time, and the mom proclaims that Maxie the dog can’t even bear to look at his own poop. 

Credit: @raquel___r / Twitter

Poor Maxie looks ashamed as he’s being dragged to the bathroom. Yes, she took the dog to the bathroom so he could flush it down the toilet. “Cochino” she tells Maxie. “And don’t do that again!”

This wasn’t the first time Maxie got in trouble for making a mess. A while ago he got reprimanded for tearing up tissue and leaving it all over the place.

“I’ve had enough with you,” she tells Maxie, and once again makes him grab his own mess, with her help of course. Maxie again looks guilty as charged and won’t look at the trash but understands what he did wrong. 

People on social media could relate to poor Maxie because their moms forced their dog to clean up their mess too! We had no idea this was a thing.

Now that we’ve seen at least two dogs forced to pick up after themselves, it doesn’t look too hard. 

This dog had it rough though.

“You don’t do that!” mom tells the dog. We think he learned his lesson, however, that whole house looks sort of messy, so who’s really to blame?

By the way, cats can pick up stuff too.

So to all the moms that pretend to hate pets, we know the truth. You’re a softy!

Credit: @Gabzillaax / Twitter

That goes for dads too!

For any kid (or adult) still living at home, if your parent says they don’t want a pet in the house, just bring it on by. They’ll be part of the family in no time. 

We do have some sad news to report. The video that Raquel posted of her dog Maxie was kind of old, and she informed her followers that Maxie died late last this year.

Credit: @raquel___r / Twitter

The video is an old video fo the little pup. While Maxie is no longer with us physically, he has made a mark on everyone who has seen the video and we have to thank him for that.

People on social media weren’t too thrilled to hear this kind of sad update.

Credit: @sealionceline / Twitter

We were surprised about this stunning news as well. 

Looks like people got attached to Maxie pretty quickly.

Poor little guy. Do you think the trauma of having to pick up his own poop is what made pass away?? That would be horrible and probably not something you could prove anyway. Plus, we doubt Raquel’s mom would want to know that he suffered from PTSD from mortification of having to pick up his own poop. 

We’re pretty sad about this too. 

Credit: @thechynnabee / Twitter

Oh, Maxie!!

We’ll always have these sweet memories of you having to face the humiliation of having to pick up your own poop and throw it in the toilet.

Never forget.

A Young Latino Confronted His Mom For Liking His Ex’s Post And She Clearly Doesn’t Care

@MamonNalgon / Twitter

There is something about your parents staying friends with your ex that drives people crazy. Like, they also made connections with those people and they might really like them. However, should they take your side and just cut them off? That is the debate raging right now after on Twitter user confronted his mom about liking one of his ex’s Instagram photos.

Here is the moment Alan Zamora confronted his mother about liking his ex’s photo on social media.

He confronted him mother with a, “WTF?!” She responded simply with, “Terminó contigo, pero no conmigo.” She added: “She’s my friend.” Now, that is just some cold honesty about the importance of making sure your parents don’t get too attached to your novios and novias.

Her insistence on being friends with his ex led him to ask for new moms.

Who wants to give this man the mom he clearly wants. Obviously, he is looking for fierce loyalty and a mother who will never side with his ex over him. Also must be able to be filmed for Twitter at a moment’s notice.

She even invited his ex over to hang out and we are all dead.

Credit: @MamonNalgon / Twitter

Honestly, we all love when our ex’s parents want to stay in touch with us. They clearly love what we have to offer to the world. However, have you ever been on the other side of this? Have you ever seen your parents try to hangout with your exes while liking their social media pics?

Some people saw this and thanked the universe that their parents can’t do the same thing.

Pro tip: Make your parents social media illiterate. If they don’t know how to do social media, they can’t break your heart like this. Imagine your mom having an entire Instagram just to stay connected with the exes she liked from your life.

Some moms came through to explain what is happening from her perspective.

It is kind of unfair for us to ask our parents to just cut someone out of their lives just because we couldn’t make it work. should they put their lives and hearts on pause just because our lives fell apart? It is a question that some moms legit want us to answer.

There were a few examples of parents taking it too far.

Credit: @cachacci / Twitter

Like, who does this? How does your mom take a trip with one of your exes then send you photos of the trip? This is the ultimate betrayal. There you are just living life wanting to take a trip with your mom then she takes the one who got away. Shady.

Or how about coming home and seeing your ex straight chilling with your folks?

Suddenly, your safe space is gone. You can’t come home and just relax because suddenly you have an ex hanging out on the couch. What a disaster. What a life they must live to do this to their pride and joy.

Yet, some people think that it is actually a sweet reminder of how much your life impacts your parents.

Credit: @GuevaraAshlee / Twitter

Try not to cry thinking about how much you mean to your parents. They love you so much that they love everyone you love. That is true unconditional love. What a wonderful thing to think about.

Oh, and Zamora wants you to know that his mom is one of the most beautiful women despite the original video.

Credit: @MamonNalgon / Twitter

What a great son. Even when he is betrayed by his mother, he still supports her unconditionally.
