Getting Yelled At By Your Mom Is So Scary, That We Decided To Turn The Things She Says Into Horror Movie Posters

Whenever you do something to piss off your mom or whenever she’s in a bad mood, chances are she’ll start to express her anger with a few particular phrases. For instance, you’ll hear her say something like “Te calmas o te calmo,” or “Vas a ver cuando lleguemos a la casa.” And yes, sometimes it’s scary AF when she says these things to you. We wondered, “What if these scary ‘mom phrases’ were turned into actual scary movie posters?” So we created a few.

Check them out for yourself, and hopefully you don’t have any nightmares.

If you love scary movies, check out this flick about a mother who angrily refuses to call her son by his first name.

You probably hear this from your mom almost every single day.

If you’re more into thrillers, this movie will have you shaking with goosebumps.

As soon as you hear this, you know damn well to immediately relax and behave.

And things only get more intense with this scary flick:

This phrase is more common when you’re misbehaving somewhere out in public with your mom and she’s unable to punish you right then and there.

Warning: this one will probably give you nightmares.

And if you’re familiar with this scary-ass phrase, then you must know it doesn’t mean she’s offering you any hot chocolate or tea before you go to sleep.

You may not be able to sleep if you watch this movie:

You’ll definitely hear this coming from your mom whenever she thinks you’re crying for no good reason… or whenever you’re crying at all.

If you’re a fan of movies that are based on true stories, then this one is a must:

If you don’t want to hear this scary threat coming from your mom, then don’t disturb her and ask her to help you look for something because she’ll just assume you’re too lazy to look for it yourself.

If this one doesn’t make you scream in fear…

Yup, that’s a threat.

…then this one will definitely send tingles down your spine.

Tip: don’t take this phrase literally…that’s if you don’t want your mom to get mad at you.

After watching this movie, you won’t ever want to go out late at night. ?

There’s nothing scarier than coming home late at night, past your curfew, to an angry mom.

You may not want to go out AT ALL after watching this one:

If your mom says this to you, it’s highly advised that you don’t test her.

Just be prepared to be scared because this movie is no joke.

In other words, she isn’t dumb so don’t even think about trying to lie to her.

The scariest thing of all is…anything that happens in this movie can happen in REAL LIFE.

This phrase applies to many scenarios. For example, if you don’t wash the dishes when your mom asks you to, then you won’t be able to go out with your friends when you try to ask her for permission.

But no matter how scary all of these phrases might sound, your mom only says them to you because she loves you.

…well at least that’s what she says. *nervous laughter*

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Christmas is a special time of year. Families have their traditions to mark the festive year and some of those traditions are rooted in culture. Here are some of the ways various countries in Latin America celebrate Christmas.

El Pase Del Niño Viajero – Ecuador

El Pase del Niño Viajero is a pageant that happens in Ecuador that lasts weeks. The parade is meant to represent the journey of Mary and Joseph. The parade highlights the religious importance of Christmas in Ecuador and is most common in the Andean region of the country.

The biggest and most important parade is in Cuenca, a deeply religious city. Citizens near the city have all day to see the parade as it starts in the early morning and runs through the late afternoon. This gives people a lot of time to make it to the city to witness the parade.

La Gritería – Nicaragua

La Gritería comes after La Purisma. La Purisma is celebrated at the end of November and is meant to celebrate the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. La Gritería is celebrated in early December and involves literal yelling. Someone would shout “Que causa tanta alegria?” (“What causes so much happiness?”) People respond “La Concepción de María.” (“Mary’s Conception.”)

Las Posadas – Mexico

Mexican posadas are the most recognizable. Posadas take place in Mexico from Dec. 16-24, though this year they are most likely to be virtual. The posada begins with a procession in the neighborhood filled with people singing and sometimes led by two people dressed as Mary and Joseph.

Another part is the posada party. Before guests can enter, there is a song exchange with the people outside playing Joseph looking for shelter. The hosts sing the side of the innkeeper saying there is no room. Eventually, the guests are welcomed into the home to celebrate Christmas.

Aguinaldos – Colombia

Aguinaldos are a series of games played by people in Colombia leading up to Christmas. There are certain games that are common among people in Colombia. One is pajita en boca, which requires holding a straw in your mouth the entire time of a social event. Another is dar y no recibir, which is about getting people to take something you are giving to score a point.

El Quema Del Diablo – Guatemala

El quema del diablo is celebrated in early December and is a way of letting go of the previous year. People burn piñatas and effigies of the devil to let go of all negative feelings and moments from the previous year. If there was every to try a new tradition, this would be the year. Burn an effigy and banish 2020 to the past, where it belongs.
