Dinner Time at a Latino Family is Anything But Peaceful
Dinner is supposed to be a pleasant time when you sit down with your family and catch up on each others day…unless you are in a Latino family.
“Ven y ayúdame en la cocina”.
Like a really hard day, but ma never cares.
And what’s the point in helping her in the kitchen? The way you do things never lives up to her standards.
Me: How’s this?
Mami: That’s too thick, mijo. Just go set the table and let me fix this porquería.
Me: I give up.
*Crunch Crunch Smack Crunch Slurp*
Because without fail, someone at the damn table didn’t know how to chew with their mouth shut and somehow you always sat next to them.
Mom ALWAYS yells at us to stop fighting.
Doesn’t that only add to the bickering? ?
Someone’s always asking if you’re going to finish that.
And mom never let you move “until you finish everything in front of you.”

Porque es pecado tirar la comida… But does eating all this make me a better person?
“Bueno, if you don’t like the meal I spent all day slaving over, just go to bed hungry.” – Mami

And there was none of that we’ll-just-order-something nonsense. You eat what your served or nothing at all because “this isn’t a restaurant.”
“¿Qué pasó, pendeja? I told you exactly what to do.”
Mom never has chill when you make a mistake in the kitchen.
The worst part was always…
You even shattered a few plates just so you didn’t have to wash them.
Share this story so your family will start behaving when you try to have a civilized dinner with them.
