Running errands with your mom can be a bit exhausting, especially when one of those errands includes grocery shopping. And grocery shopping with your mom can either be quick and easy, or stressful and exhausting…and this is why:
As soon as your mom asks you to come with her to the grocery store and says, “Nomas voy a comprar una cosa bien rapidito,” you KNOW you’re getting yourself into some trouble.

“Una cosa bien rapidito” MY ASS.
The first impossible task she asks of you is to push the shopping cart and follow her in the store while she’s speeding her way through a swarm of people.

And then she gets mad at you if you’re not right behind her. But HOW are you supposed to stay right behind her when she’s squeezing her way through all of these people and you have this big ass shopping cart to push?
It only gets more stressful when you lose her in the store and she doesn’t answer any of your damn phone calls.
And since she doesn’t answer any of your phone calls, you have to bear with the embarrassment of searching for her from aisle to aisle, calling her name out loud.
So if you’re a person with no patience, then good luck because your mom will spend 20+ minutes picking out perfect fruit and vegetables.

She will do everything from smacking, spanking and smelling each vegetable and fruit, just to make sure it’s ripe.
And since she’s all about los especiales, it will take her another 15+ minutes to look for every coupon she needs.

Grocery shopping just wouldn’t exist for your mom without her coupons.
But once your mom starts talking to a friend or comadre at the store, you might as well find an aisle to take a nap in because there goes at least another half hour at the store. ?
You would think all of the grocery shopping stress would be over once you’re in line getting ready to pay, but then this happens:

And all you can do is just stand there and wait while the cashier and everyone behind you in line impatiently stares you down.
On the other hand, if your mom is the one who’s waiting in line and she asks you to go grab something, but you take too long, then she gets MAD AS HELL at you.
Like wait, you do the saaaaame thing!
And once the grocery trip is finally over, you discover that your mom has bought everything at the store, except the two things that she had originally gone to the store to buy.?
But hey, you can’t complain. All of those groceries are for you and your family, and that’s just one of the ways your mom takes care of you all. ?
