Seriously. Every time I say ANYTHING without the enthusiasm of a small child about to go pet an elephant, my mom always takes it as a personal strike against her. Just now for example, she came in my room and said that she had washed the bedding in my ferret's cage. I said "okay." I didn't say "okay mom, I f*cking hate you." I didn't say "okay mom, get the f*ck out, I never want to see you again." I didn't even say it with any kind of attitude or anything. I just said "okay." And she starts raising hell, saying I don't appreciate her or listen to her or want to be anywhere near her.

Seriously, what the hell. She does this to me all the time. Anyone else have this problem with their parents where everything you say is taken as some kind of insult?

sat "okay, thanks" instead?


Alright, yeah, so thanks would have been better. But that still doesn't give her any right to start acting like I hate her guts and want her dead.

Yeah either that or clean your ferret's cage and completely avoid the situation.


I know where you're coming from though, I sometimes feel like people just get pissed off for no reason.

Your parents problems appear to be the douchiness of their son. When someone does something for you you say, "Thank you."

any parent who is nice enough to let their child have a ferret, and then to go so far as to clean the damn cage themselves, deserves a thank you at the end of an emotionless response.

the moral of the story is that ferrets are bastards
Vikings? What Vikings? We are but poor, simple farmers. The village was burning when we got here, and the people must have slain themselves.

show your mom some ****ing respect.....God Dam would it kill u to say thanks to the mother who pushed you out of her vagina

Why in god's name does the lack of two words constitute her flinging every sh!t she has at me?

Maybe we need a better example. A few days ago, the toilet started leaking. The bathroom flooded a little, and it got the carpet right outside the bathroom door soaked. I asked her where the carpet cleaner thingy was, and went to get it. When I came back, she started blaming me that the toilet was leaking and that it soaked the carpet. Wha? I didn't even touch the toilet or go near that area of carpet that day. Her arguments didn't even make sense, she just kept blaming me over and over, and the minute I try to defend myself (not even yelling, just saying how it couldn't have been my fault), what does she do? Grab the carpet cleaner thing out of my hands and tells me to get out. I told her I would help clean it up, but no. Now I'm just an annoyance to her, which she made quite clear.

Say "I thank thee, oh overlord of my pitiful soul."


Remember she owns your soul until you're 18.

Maybe it was that you were humping your computer instead of sparing a second of your precious forum time to even acknowledge her existence with a quick glance and a "thanks?" But instead you choose to delve into the world of computers


Nah j/k, your mom is gay

Srsly. That or speak curtly to her one day with a very good point, and hope it shuts her mouth.

aw, maybe there's more to it than the ferret cage. stop and think about it... do you really appreciate her? think about all the things she does, little things too.

if there is nothing, she's still your mom.... maybe get her something like a little stuffed animal or a flower.. something!! lol

ps. if they are your ferrets.. your mom shouldn't be the one cleaning the bedding.

Just say "Okay Thanks" as someone said.
Either that or something along the lines of "Okay, I Shall =]" or "alright mom. Wait, where are you off to?"
Something to show some interest.

I have a teacher like that.

I stub my toe and QUIETLY WHISPER TO MYSELF "ow crap"

And then she kicks me out of the class. She takes the tiniest little things personally...

My dad always comes in and wants to read every word that's on the screen when I am on the PC, so I usually minimize it so he won't. But then he's like "WHAT WAS UP THERE?!?!" even if he didn't see me minimize it. He always wants me to explain in full detail what I am doing and why every pixel is there.

Would I really be watching porn with my door wide open and everyone home?

Haha, I get the exact same **** dude.

All the time my mom will go of on how I don't love or appreciate her.
I gave up on trying to say shes wrong, so whenever she plays that card I just go ahead and say whatever and walk away. Me and my mom argue alottttttt.

No probs with my dad though.
