This Is Why Grocery Shopping With Your Mom Is One Of The Most Stressful Experiences Ever

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 at the store, you might as well find an aisle to take a nap in because there goes at least another half hour.

So. Annoying.

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.

A Doorbell Camera Captured The Terrifying Moment A Neighbor Saved A Family From Their burning home

A Doorbell Camera Captured The Terrifying Moment A Neighbor Saved A Family From Their burning home

A family from Arizona has tragically been without a home since New Year’s Day. Fortunately, however, thanks to the swift efforts of a neighbor, they still have each other.

On New Year’s Day, the Salgado family was asleep in their home in Avondale, Arizona when they heard a frantic knock at their door. Nicole Salgado’s husband, who lived in the home with their children, opened the front door to find her neighbor shouting at her to get her family out of the house. It was on fire.

The Salgado family woke up New Year’s Day to find their house in flames.

“We were all asleep,” Salgado explained to CNN in an interview. “Then all of the sudden around 7:30 in the morning, we hear banging on our door and our doorbell is going off and we kind of get scared.”

Their neighbor, Carolyn Palisch, was there telling them to get out of the house. Footage from the family’s home security video shows their neighbor running past flames to get to the home.

“He opened the door and all I heard was our neighbor Carolyn saying your house is on fire you have to get out,” said Salgado.

Salgado, who is a mother to four children, hurried to gather her children. Together, all of them escaped the burning home safely. “It was just kind of frantic at first, making sure we got everyone out and the dogs out,” she explained. “Then once we realized the full extent of it we were just in shock as we watched our home burn.”

Sadly, the Salgado family lost all their belongings in the fire

Salgado explained that the roof of her house collapsed moments after they escaped. According to CNN, firefighters at the scene claimed that if the family had still been sleeping at the time the roof had collapsed they would have inhaled the smoke and likely passed out immediately.

We are so thankful to just be alive,” Salgado explained in a post to her TikTook page. She also included doorbell camera footage of the moment their neighbor came to the rescue.

Salgado’s video has been liked nearly 7 million times on TikTok.

“Never did we think it was going to blow up the way it did. But we are so grateful,” Salgado explained. “We are so glad it did for Carol, to show how amazing she is. If it wasn’t for her it’d be a totally different story. We feel so thankful to her. We’re always going to consider her family. She not only saved us, she saved our kids.”

Salgado says that the cause of the fire is still under investigation and shared that her family has created a Go Fund Me account to help them rebuild their lives.
