    My mom has been asking me if I wanted to go out and eat for the last 2 hours... and I was honestly not hungry... so I kept saying I was OK, but I would go and eat if she wanted to go somewhere.... but of course she was being difficult and couldn't decide where to go... so she just said to forget about it.

    She went and layed down in her room.. 1/2 an hour or so later, I'm hungry, and tell her lets go... shes like "no, its to late now..."

    Then my dad calls. tells me to meet him at Chili's in half an hour... so i tell my mom. and she gets all upset...

    Meh.

    :meh:

    She's your mom man. You should please her any chance you get. Especially if she gets upset that easily. Haha. My mom would just tell me to taff off.

    So I got her a card... And it says "Sometimes I just sit and smile and feel happy there are people like you in the world. Thanks for being you." then i added "They didn't have a card for the most kick-ass mom ever, so I'll have to write it myself.

    You are the most kick-ass mom ever. I love you.

    -Michael

    (My handwriting kinda resembles yours.)"

    So, think that will cheer her up?
     
  9. yeah it will cheer her up. be sure to sign it with your linkin park pen though.

    That will help. I don't think I would ever give my mom a card with cuss words in it though.

    My mom is the same way as yours, it's annoying as Hell. I don't see how people get so worked-up over nothing :meh:. I guess it might be because my mom has never really worked or had a career. She was a D student in high school and right after she married my dad. She's raised 2 kids, but I can't say she puts the most effort into it.
     
  13. :D
     
  14. I said this before, in another of your useful threads, Mike.

    You will truly regret the bad things you say/do to your parents once they are gone.

    Wanna be really punk?? Be good to your folks! That's heaps out there. ;)

    The ellipsis can also be used to indicate a pause in the flow of a sentence and is especially useful in quoted speech:

    That was a nice thing to do Mike. Just remember, no matter how much crap you take from your mom, your dad is taking ALOT more!
