If You Tell Your Mom You Want To Move Out, She’ll Laugh And Tell You These 9 Things

The more you mention the idea of wanting to move out, the more your parents will try to convince you that you shouldn’t… especially your mom. And this is how she goes about trying to convince you that moving out is the worst idea ever:

Your mom’s strategy begins with the mention of her delicious home cooked meals, which you will miss out on if you move out.

Unless you’ve mastered your mom’s cooking skills, the only type of sopa you’ll be having when you move out is Cup-O-Noodles. #ByePozole

There’s also a *not so subtle* mention about how she’s always taking care of you when you’re sick.

Who will take care of you when you’re living by yourself, lying in bed sick with a cold?

If it’s not about how she takes care of you when you’re sick, then it’s about all of the other things she does for you on a daily basis, such as laundry.

Be prepared for piles and more piles of dirty clothes to appear. 

Next is your mom’s scare tactic: she starts doing the math on how much money you would be spending on rent, utilities, and personal necessities if you were to move out.

Well, there goes all of your money to travel the world.

You can expect to hear something like, “Instead of moving out and renting an apartment, you can stay here and save your money to buy a house!”

And chances are, your mom also won’t want you moving in with your significant other until you two are married.

And since you wouldn’t be spending any money on rent, your mom reminds you of all of the other things you will be able to use that money for.

This is where you start to second guess the idea of moving out.

As part of her “sweet and caring” strategy, your mom reminds you that this is your home and that just because you’re older than 18, it doesn’t mean you’re obligated to move out.

You will always be her baby no matter how old you get.

To make her argument even stronger, your mom then guilt trips you by saying:

This is where you start to feel bad for even thinking about moving out. 

Even though all of this could get a bit annoying after a while, your mom only says these things because she wants what’s best for you.

She’s just preparing you for the real world.

Vanessa Bryant Forced To Respond To ‘Beyond Hurtful’ Comments Made By Her Own Mom On ‘El Gordo y La Flaca’

STEPHEN DUNN / GETTY

Within just nine months, Vanessa Bryant has (like all of us) had to deal with the stress and uncertainty of a pandemic, racial crisis and injustice, and the threats of unstable political leadership. She has also had to deal with the almighty devastation of losing her husband and daughter on the same day. You think this would be enough to ensure that she receives only sympathy, support, and light during this time but not so.

Recently, the wife of the late basketball great Kobe Bryant is dealing with negative claims taken to the press by her own mother.

In an interview with Univision, Bryant’s mother Sofia Laine claimed her daughter had kicked her out of her home.

Appearing on “El Gordo y La Flaca,” Laine claimed that her 38-year-old daughter had forced her out of a family home and made her return the car she used.

In a statement to People, Bryant defended herself saying “My husband and daughter passed away unexpectedly, and yet my mom has the audacity to do an interview on TV talking negatively about me while shedding tears about a car and home that wasn’t in her name.”

“She has removed all her diamond jewelry, emptied her apartment that I provide, and put the furniture in storage to appear as though she is without support,” Bryant went onto claim. “My husband and I have financially supported her over the past 20 years, and I continue to do so, in addition to her monthly alimony.”

Bryant went onto add that “contrary to previous reports, she has not been physically present or emotionally supportive for my daughters and me after my husband and daughter passed away. Going forward, I see what is most important to my mom and it is beyond hurtful. I hope this public airing of our personal relations will stop here.”

Bryant lost her husband, the late NBA star, and the couple’s second-oldest daughter Gianna in a tragic helicopter crash in January.

The crash claimed the lives of seven other people including Payton Chester, 13, Sarah Chester, 46, Alyssa Altobelli, 14,Keri Altobelli, 46, John Altobelli, 56, Christina Mauser, 38, and the helicopter’s pilot Ara Zobayan, 50.

Plants

A curved shower rod

“A curved shower rod. Seriously. $10 for a tension rod, or $28 for a curved one that takes a bit more effort to install, but your showers are suddenly 33% larger and feels like you’re in a hotel every day.” – xixi2

A back scratcher

“I bought a $1 back scratcher from an Asian market in town.
Best $1 I ever spent.” – matthewsmazes

A new pair of socks

“New pair of socks. If you’ve been wearing the same pairs forever like I typically usually do theirs nothing like putting on a new pair of freshly bought socks, you can totally feel the difference, I never realized til was an adult sadly but I appreciate the feeling of new socks all the time.” – Spider-Mike23

An alarm clock

“A decent light wake up alarm clock. Completely changed my mornings. Don’t think I could ever go back to using my phone or a simple alarm clock.” –ringolennon67

King-sized bedding for your any-size bed.

“I got a king for a double bed. Best decision ever! The double sheets fit the bed, but I couldn’t snuggle completely under them without curling up. Now. I can hide completely under the duvet stretched out. Best thing ever in the winter!” – Zanki

Sharp knives

“Sharp knives for the kitchen.” – trendz19

A weighted blanket

“In my opinion definitely a weighted blanket if you have a hard time sleeping at night or have anxiety. They have some at Target for $25 currently.” – stupidveganbaby

A vibrator

“I strongly recommend the Satisfyer to any lady such as myself that requires more external stimulation than internal. Its top tier, all of my other toys gathered dust and then I eventually threw them all out.” – Anilxe

A good pillow

A cast-iron skillet

“A good chef’s knife and a cast-iron skillet. When you have tools that are satisfying to use, cooking becomes less “chore” and more “hobby”. You’ll end up eating healthier, cheaper than takeout/restaurant, and ditching the dull Walmart knife and scratched up nonstick aluminum skillet are the best place to start.” –eric_1115

A good showerhead

“A good showerhead. I cannot stress enough how a high-quality showerhead can turn getting clean into an utterly zen, 30-minute self-healing, and relaxation session.” – Phleed

A rice cooker

“Rice cooker. That fucker kept me fed during depression when I barely had the energy to get out of bed. Takes less than nothing to get some rice in there and flip the switch. Want something sweet? Throw coconut and sugar in there. Want flavor but can’t be fucked to make anything? Get some Spanish rice or saffron goin. You can throw tofu in there with it if you need. Yeah, it’s not the best for you but hot food is better than no food.” – HotTopicMallRat
