Let’s be honest, nothing made us cringe more than some of our mom’s favorite sayings. Of course, we keep the rage on the down-low because respeto. But DAYUM we’re only human and our inner contestona responded in a not-so-respectful way, and if she could hear us, it would sound like this…
“Mientras vivas en mi casa, sigues mis reglas.”
If I made the rules, they would make more sense. I swear you make them up as you go along.

Wait did you just call yourself the devil and old? If I were to do that, I’d get a chanclazo for sure.
“¿No te gusta?! Pues no estas en un restaurante!”
All I wanted was McDonald’s and now you are forcing me to eat my weight in frijoles? I’m pretty sure that’s child abuse.
“¿Crees que nací ayer?”
No, of course not because you keep pulling rank on me, and I can’t get anything past you.

Here we go again! I’d love to tell you I might not have kids, but then you’ll have a patatús.

Me having this conversation with you right now is punishment enough.
“Tu prima ya hizo (fill in the blank with something you should be doing too).”

You mean the same prima you were criticizing yesterday for being a malcriada? How quickly things change when you want to make a point.

I’m just gonna sneak an eyeroll in right here and hope you don’t notice because I CAN’T with this cuento again!
“¿Te mandas sola?”

Maybe if I had the time, but I’m too busy following your orders to come up with my own.
“¿Para qué tienes que salir si ya saliste ayer y antier?”

I ate, peed and pooped on those days too, and I’m gonna do it again today, so why can’t I go out, too?
