13 Comments From Latino Parents That Legit Made Us Move Out

When it comes to growing up in a Latino household, we’re used to the chaos, the yelling, the fighting and the insane amount of love. While I’d never trade in my family for anyone, we can all agree there are times when we just want to roll our eyes at the things they tell us.

Here are 13 passive aggressive comments from our parents that every Latino understands.

1. “Oh you want to have a sleepover at your friend’s house? What’s wrong with our house?”

Everything is a constant comparison.

2. “Don’t you love your abuela enough to visit her every week?”

UGH, what does that even mean? Just because I don’t want to spend every single Sunday at abuela’s house doesn’t mean I don’t love her.

3. “You want to order pizza? What’s wrong with my food?”

Every. Single. Time.

4. “I see you decided to go to the doctor. Why didn’t you just use Vicks VaporRub?”

How do we tell our parents there are truly some things Vicks VaporRub can’t fix?

5. “Oh, were you watching something?”

Why yes, I was watching something on the television, but I guess it’s important you watch La Reina del Sur for the hundredth time.

6. “Were you really going to leave the house in that?”

Why yes, papí, I was, thank you for asking.

7. “Sorry we aren’t fancy like all of your friends.”

They always say this even when we give them no reason to. It’s like comparing our life to our friend’s life is what they want us to do.

8. “You look tired, mija.”

Thanks mom, thanks dad. Thanks a lot. 

9. “That’s all you’re eating?”

Our parents will never think we’re eating enough. Ever.

10. “Don’t you like your nickname?”

Sorry I don’t like being called “gordita” or “flaca” constantly. Whoops.

11. “Most kids never get to have a quinceañera.”

Our parents think because they threw us a quinceañera, it means we can never complain again. C’mon now. It was SO LONG AGO. Surely we’ve refilled our right to whine!

12. “I guess you want to catch pneumonia, walking around with that wet head of yours.”

Ma and Papí are convinced that you can catch pneumonia at any given moment. It’s insane.

13. “If you had good taste, you would listen to real music like Juan Luis Guerra or Vicente Fernandez and not these One Direction fools.”

Ayyy! Our parents will definitely never understand our boy band obsession.

GQ Dubbed A Selena Gomez Interview With Pee Wee Herman's And It's Weird AF


GQ Dubbed A Selena Gomez Interview With Pee Wee Herman’s And It’s Weird AF

This is so weird in the best way.

GQ just upped the weird-interview game by dubbing over Selena Gomez’s voice with the voice of… Pee Wee Herman. No, this isn’t some random fan video where they took an original and dubbed the voice for fun. GQ made the decision to have the singer’s voice disguised behind one of America’s most beloved and quirky characters. It’s like DubSmash, but on a whole other level, y’all. It’s already odd that the interview with Instagram’s most followed celebrity is taking place in a field in the middle of Texas (well, maybe that’s not so weird), but gets even stranger when she opens her mouth, and you hear the voice of a middle-aged white man with an eccentric and exaggerated accent. No matter how many times you watch it, it is still as weird and entrancing as the last.

Once you get used to Pee Wee’s voice, watch as the Latina pop star explains the reasoning behind one of her most iconic Instagram photos, including the one captioned “When they play your song at the club.”
