No Matter How Small The Problem Is, This Is How Your Mom Will Make It Seem Like It’s The End Of The World

One of the reasons you grow so scared about getting in trouble by your mom is because she tends to overdramatize almost everything. Even if you don’t think it’s such a big deal, to your mom it’s the end of the world. Here are some melodramatic situations you’ve probably have to deal with:

Latins moms add drama to the simplest scenarios. Only they can look at a utensil and yell at you for leaving a mess. Yes, a massive mess.

To you it’s just one spoon, but to your mom it’s three weeks worth of dishes that you haven’t washed. This usually leads to the classic speech about how much harder your mom had it and she had to wash her dishes en el río. Mom, I’m sorry you had to wash dishes that way, it sucks. But it’s still just a spoon.

You can expect the same, dramatic reaction from her every time she sees something out of place in your room.

One misplaced sock looks like a landfill to her.

Even having one cocktail over dinner, raises crazy party animal flags in your mom’s eyes.

To her, one drink with dinner makes you a total alcoholic. Alcohol with food? Who does that?!

And just when you’re ready to go out clubbing in your new dress that is so decent it could almost pass as business attire, your mom will jump out and tell you otherwise.

She might say something along the lines of: “descarada,” or “you might as well go out naked.”

And be prepared for some major drama if you’re out and you happen to miss one of her phone calls. To her, one missed call means the absolute WORST THING IN THE WORLD has happened to you.

To her:

2 missed calls = you’re out doing drugs.

5 missed calls = you’ve been kidnapped.

7 missed calls = you’ve been doing drugs, got kidnapped AND got killed. By now, she’s probably making your funeral arrangements. RIP.

Even when it comes to the time of day (or night), she has to be extra.

By at least two hours.

The drama doesn’t end on weekends. ?

Monday through Friday you wake up to the same alarm at 6 a.m. You work hard. You study hard. Sleeping in a couple of hours – at least until 8 a.m. – during the weekends sounds like the perfect way to reward yourself for all of your hard work. But if you ask your mom, sleeping in past 7 a.m. makes you the laziest, most unproductive human being on earth.

No matter how hard you try to avoid it, your mom is likely to turn something small into a bigger deal. Literally.

There’s no such thing as a “small” tattoo once you show your mom.

Even when you tell your mom you’re vegan or vegetarian (which is generally looked at as a healthier diet), she will have a meltdown because this is how she sees you now:

Because food is EVERYTHING in a Latino household, news like this will break her heart.

To her, even adulting seems like the most dangerous thing to happen to you. Buying a car is just asking to get killed.

How many times have you heard “manejas como loca” all while going 50 MPH?

To sum it up, everything that you do to everything that you own and everyone that you date, is the absolute worst.

But at the end of the day, despite the drama, you know your mom is just worried about you and is trying to look out for her baby as best she can. ❤️
