Moms that drive you insane

    I've been spending time with my mom (along with other family members) every hour for the past week. & although I miss her very much for the past few years in college, being around her is driving me insane. It's been 2 years since we last seen each other and each day I'm rediscovering some of the things she does/say to me that drives me madness. Just to give a little insight; She rants about me in front of other people, keeps telling me what to wear, and today she wanted me to fight my aunt for the restaurant bill. What are some ways your mom (or dad) drives you insane? Do you have any coping mechanisms?

    I get on best with my family when I don't see them very often.

    Except my dad. My dad's just a cunt.

    I think you should be thankful you have a relationship with your mom. Some guys (after coming out) no longer have relationships with their moms because the moms refuse to accept their sons are gay.

    Yup. Sounds about right. I abhor being around my parents for that and many other reasons.

    Just be glad your mom doesn't bring up Jesus and God and Hell every time you talk to her.

    I know we're supposed to honor our mothers and fathers. My mom makes that difficult to do, but I work at getting along with her. God knows how hard I work to get along with her. We have coffee a few times a month and as long as we stay off certain subjects, we're pretty much okay. She claims to be fine with my sexuality, but I hear differently from others about what her true feelings are. I politely put up with her unpleasant comments and just let them pass. Otherwise, we'll have war again followed by long periods of solicitude.

    My mom and I got along great. My relationship with my dad was a bit strained at times. Sadly, they are both gone now. Be grateful that you still have your parents. Work things out now before it's too late.

    Reminds me of the old saying, "You can choose your friends but not your family."

    You kinda hafta forgive your mom for being a pain in the neck sometimes when you think back to how, at one time, you were a great big pain in her vagina.

    My mom thankfully doesn't drive me insane, she's cool

    oh except, since I'm the youngest and I've been away for so long, she sometimes gets emotional with me when i come visit...but that's about it

    on the other hand,

    my boyfriend's mom- gave me a bible the first time I met her, i'm like "wait, wha..."

    The only time mom & I didn't get along was during my adolescence, age 17/18ish. But after I went off to school, I came back to my senses and we were good again.

    I had the best mom. I feel so badly for guys rejected by their moms because of their sexual orientation. I don't know how you survive that.

    For anyone accepted by their moms but still giving their mom a hard time: cut the crap already. Accept her for who she is too. You're not going to have her in your life forever. You're going to miss her one day.

    My college girlfriend had a mother from Hell, because she was a chronic alcoholic. In fact, she was committed by her husband for treatment 3 times.

    Among the standout moments: when her daughter was getting married, the mother insisted on controlling the entire 300-person guest list. When the daughter said she & her fiancé wanted at least 50 invites set aside for friends, the mother replied: "You two don't HAVE 50 friends."

    I avoided her parents house when I could because of the abuse I myself received. One time we dropped by, and her mother asked me what was new. I answered: "Not much." "Well then what's OLD, Bob, besides YOU"? she replied. She didn't like the idea I was 6 years older than her daughter, though both of us were in our 20s.

    Another time I paid for her daugher's tour of Florida with me, including reservations at Disney World, visiting the Keys, the Everglades, etc, a complete vacation itinerary of several weeks all at my expense. Half-way through it the mother phoned and said her daughter had to return to New Jersey immediately, there was a family emergency for which the mother needed her.

    I was dubious and argued against going, but my GF, with tears in her eyes, said she couldn't refuse her mother. So I canceled everything and arranged transportation back for both of us, losing quite a bit of money over it. Needless to say the parents refused to underwrite the added expense and lost money, saying since I had brought their daughter down I should bring her back.

    When she got back home it became evident there had been no emergency, other than a reception or something the mother wanted her daughter to help out with. And the mother could barely remember her call to Florida, having been so drunk as I had suspected. But I felt more sorry for her suffering daughter than I did for me.

    Be thankful you have a mom and one that's in your life. My mom means everything to me and I only get to see her once a year because she lives far away.

    And the older I get, the more I realize how much she did for me and my siblings while growing up and how many sacrifices she made. Even tho she can nag sometimes (that's how moms are), I still love her. Yep, I'm a big momma's boy and darn proud of it too icon_wink.gif

    Parents are supposed to drive you insane. That way you move out quickly and they turn your room into a rec room for themselves.

    My mom is WAY to overprotective.

    My mechanism has always been to go with the flow. Worked great, but now she doesn't respect me. Just another "quirk" of hers.
