But not as out of control as a drunk white girl trying to Gangnam style dance next to you.
It's bad enough when your mom shares stories to her friends about your childhood that still haunt you to this day. But today, she went over the top. She's been posting embarrassing baby photos of me (and my brothers) on Facebook for all my friends to see.
But since the cats out of the bag and there's little to no available self worth after these postings, I may as well share them with you.
Family photo of my brothers and I. They too were not safe from the onslaught of childhood photo bombings from our mother. Check out those knee high socks!
*We hear the Annoying Coworker from across the office*
Coworker #1: So annoying! Coworker #2: Oh my god, bro. It's nuts. Me: Can you hear it? Coworker #2: What is wrong with her? Mad loud. I hear it all the time. At least like ten times a day Me: fml. Coworker #2: She does that loud ass annoying laugh. WTF kinda laugh is that? It sounds like she choking
As a licensed driver and having your mother in the passenger seat, there's nothing more annoying than this. We've all been there. The constant nagging, the "this is my last day on earth" mentality whenever she sits in the car with me, the constant reminder to stay 50 mph below the speed limit. If my mother and I were in a rally car race, and she was my navigator, this is how it'd go.
Mother: Turn by that tree stump thingy. Me: There are a million stumps out here! Turn which way? Where? Mother: Chris, why are you driving so fast? Me: Did you not realize this is a race? Mother: Look out for the puddle. Me: It's just a puddle, don't worry. Mother: Do you really need to be going this fast? You're going to hydroplane! Me: UGH! Just tell me where, not how to drive! Mother: Pull over, let me drive. Me: No! We're in the middle of a race! Mother: Pull this car over now! Me: NO! UGHHHHHHH! Mother: Don't listen to the GPS, I know a better way, I drive here every day. Me: You drive on a dirt road through the woods on your way to work? Mother: I packed some sandwiches for our little trip, do you want PB&J or tuna? Me: *Sighs in defeat* Salami.
Tell me I'm not the only one who hates every minute of their car ride with their mom sitting as a passenger.
