Every Time You Hear Your Mom Say These Phrases, You Immediately Fear For Your Life
Latino parents have a way with words. And you always know they’re not too happy with you when you hear any of these phrases…
When you hear your mom say, “Síguele,” it doesn’t actually mean “continue doing what you’re doing.” It means *stop* whatever it is you’re doing… or else.
My mom says it with that exact facial expression as well.
And if your parents use the “I’m going to count to three” technique, then beware, because they are not playing games.
Once they finish counting, you better run or hide.
Also be careful if they say, “Ven aquí, nomas quiero hablar.”
It’s never that.
And when you start crying because you can’t contain your fear, your parents will ask you a very important question.
Or resort to the all-time favorite phrase.
Which is also kind of a question.
But you know mom is really annoyed when she says this:
You already know what “que te hago” means.
And when your mom or dad tell you “No me quiero levantar,” it actually means they’re very close to getting out of their seat.
My clap back is always, “Well, don’t get up then.” It’s simple.
Nothing sends chills down your spine like when you’re in public and your parents say, “Vas a ver cuando lleguemos a la casa.”
That drive home is the most nerve wracking thing ever.
But Latino parents always remind you how much they love you… even after a good regañada.
Of course, this phrase doesn’t make you feel any better, but at least you know it’s true. If your parents scolded you it was because they wanted you to be a better person.
