Mothers are the sweetest beings on Earth, but some can be downright sassy. Women in this category are known to drop some savage comments every now and then, and while some of these remarks are funny, others are just downright mean. You don't believe us? Here's a list to keep you entertained.
Savagery That Reveals a Beautiful Bond
Gone are the days when parents were just disciplinarians that even their own children could never even share a joke with. While such a conversation may never happen between some parents and their kids, we should all be intentional about forming a friendship with our folks and our children.
Although this mom was rude, just as the daughter called her out to be, we must admit she also has us in stitches. We can tell the two have a beautiful relationship, where they can openly talk about anything, which is essential, especially as the kid continues to grow and go through different life challenges. So good job, mama!
Zero Sense of Humor
Having a great sense of humor is such a blessing, but it's obvious that not everyone has that gift. Usually, this latter group can come off as insensitive and cold. A perfect representation is this lady's mother, whose sense of humor is quite questionable, and it's apparent in the way her daughter complains.
For instance, when their dog passed away, this woman changed her password to "Scruffyisd**d.” Who does that? Then, another time she wanted to board a plane, and her daughter wished her a safe flight. One would have expected the mother to respond sweetly, but instead, she said that having a safe flight wasn't up to her. It must be a lot of work, living with that kind of person.
Mother Always Knows Best
With mothers around, you can go to sleep even when there's something big coming up. These people have premium problem-solving skills, which include a backup plan. This girl had her quinceanera coming up, and rather than assume that her daughter had a boyfriend to dance with, dear mother made arrangements for a date.
The dance partner turned out to be the celebrant's cousin. Well, we think that's a smart move by the mom, way better than having no date on such a special occasion. Still, the girl felt hurt that her mother had correctly predicted that her daughter didn't have a boyfriend.
Not the Response She Was Expecting
A mother's compliment can get you on cloud nine faster than anything else. This is why we'd do anything to get mummy dearest to say something sweet. Similarly, a snappy comeback from your mom can get you in the worst of moods.
This was the case with this lady when she went fishing for a compliment from her mother. She told her mom she was her best daughter, hoping the woman would respond in the affirmative. Instead, the older lady looked at the younger and said that she was her only daughter, and she was already disappointed. Wow, what a response! That was definitely not that girl's lucky day. We hope she was strong enough to handle such a statement.
Have Some Sympathy, Woman
Mothers can be anything you want them to be —a friend, a cheerleader, and lots more. Also, no one cares for us better whenever we fall ill. So it makes sense that this lady wanted to tell her mother that she was feeling under the weather by sending a sick selfie.
Sadly, mom chose that day to be cold-hearted. Without uttering a word of sympathy, the woman told her daughter that sending the latter a makeup tutorial would make her sick face look better. Certainly not what we’d expect a mother to say to her ill child, but what do we know?
The Best House Rules Offer Wins
We may not have liked them when we were younger, but looking back, we're grateful for our parents' house rules that had us clean up after ourselves and help with the dishes. Thanks to these practices, we have grown up to be responsible adults, which is why we will maintain a similar tradition with our own kids so that they can also be reliable members of society in future.
As savage as she was, this mom was right about her children taking up a better offer than hers. It won't be long before they find out that no matter where one goes, there are things we cannot escape doing whether we enjoy doing them or not.
Anything to Silence a Complaint
If you have a child who never complains, then you need to start thanking the heavens because those are rare. No matter how good a parent may be, kids complain an awful lot about everything, from not being allowed to have junk food for dinner to being forced to go to bed rather than being left to play until they're tired.
So it's not surprising that some parents will say just about anything to silence their young ones. We're assuming this mom was having one of those moments where she just needed her son to stop, so she went in with the trash comment.
When Your Voice Is Useless
Now this, we don’t understand. Perhaps this mom doesn’t like the voice of her kid, and if that’s the case, there are several other people singing out loud, which will drown out the voice of this particular child, no matter how much they may try to project it.
We agree that a parent’s role is to guide their kid, but this rule, in our opinion, is unnecessary. The child is mostly restricted at school and home; let them have at least one place where they can be untamed, and we think a place of worship is most suitable, especially during singing sessions, to go all out.
Betrayed by One’s Own Social Media Profile
In this digital age, it's common to hear stories about those closest to someone messing around with them through their social media profiles. Some people have had loved ones posting embarrassing status updates pretending to be them, or even uploading pictures of them that should never have seen the light of day.
This mom, though, takes the crown for the most savage way of doing your child dirty via their social media profile. With this kind of a page in existence, we can't imagine the kind of unsolicited comments that this user got about her dyed hair from people that shouldn't even be giving any type of advice.
Hit Them With the Truth
They always say that the truth with reveal itself, but sometimes when we have to reveal it ourselves, honesty isn’t the best policy, especially if the other person is already feeling bad. Sometimes people will ask you questions because they need validation and not your honest opinion. Learning when not to tell the truth is a real talent.
This internet user probably learned it the hard way when she asked her mother about what she thinks of her hair. Instead of the blonde highlights she was going for, she ended up with orange ones that she didn’t like. Her mother, however, digressed by saying she looked good in hats. So this probably meant that her hair was worse than she thought it was.
Cruel Parents Need to Reconsider
Some parents can be funny, while others can be strictly brutal for no reason. The problem is that their words would stick forever and cause their kids to suffer unnecessarily.
This probably happened to the person who shares a story about an ugly sweater Christmas party. When he asked his mother about what to wear for the ugly sweater party, she said he didn’t need anything ugly because his ugly face was enough. We don't know if she meant to joke, but we’re sure her kid was hurt. Words like these can make someone lose their self-confidence for years.
Your Mom Knows You Best
There are things that only your mother knows about you. After all, she’s one of the few people who has been around you since you were born. So, she might tell you things other people don’t really know.
This kid told here their mother that they accidentally took one of her cleaning rags and put it with their laundry. The mother said it’s OK because they probably won’t use it. If someone else said that, you might have accused them of insulting you; but if you’re a lazy person and you never clean, your mother probably knows this very well.
What an Unexpected Distraction
When young people reach puberty, they go through a lot of hormonal changes, and they feel that their life is turning upside down. Having some compassion from one's mother definitely helps, and this is probably what this girl needed when she was going through puberty. She asked her mother for comforting advice, so she tried to cheer her up.
She made her watch the movie Carrie, which is about a girl in a similar situation. So, this netizen had to suffer the emotional and physical pain she’s going through, in addition to the horror of the gory movie. If this was a joke, then it was definitely a cruel one.
Give It up for the Smartest Two-Year-Old
There's usually a silent struggle among siblings for the spot of the most favorite child. To keep the peace, parents have learned to treat all their kids equally so that no one’s regarded as the favorite. Apparently, not all parents got the memo because here's one mom that thought it'd be great to praise one child right in the presence of another by calling her the smartest kid.
The funny part is that this supposed genius is only two years old and can hardly speak, read or write. So imagine how the older one would have felt, being pushed to the background to make way for the baby. Wrong move, mom!
Now Imagine if It Was True
Some pranks are funny, but for some reason, the pranks your parents play on you are always extremely cruel. This girl remembers when, one day, she got her shirt stained and went to the garage with her mother to have it cleaned because this is where they kept the washer and dryer.
As she took it off, the mother said hi to a neighbor the girl had a huge crush on. She turned around, not wearing her shirt, of course, ready to faint. Yet, luckily, no one was there, but her mother thought that the joke was very funny. We think that this mom was inspired by some mean character she watched in a movie.
Some Food for Thought
It's quite common to stumble upon something that reminds you of one of your friends or acquaintances and you'd always be happy to let them know, especially if it has some sweet memory attached to it. This mother found something that resonated with her son, and she didn't hesitate to make her feelings known.
We would like to assume that this mother was teasing her son, otherwise, it would be the worst method of breaking this kind of news to him. Still, some mothers establish very cordial and friendly relationships with their children, and we think this is one of those lovely mother-son ties.
The Savage but Real Tip
One of the main goals of a teenager is to have some freedom to do what they want, whenever they want, without being ordered around by their parents or elders. The first step toward that freedom is getting a job so that they don't have to ask for money from their parents all the time.
The most obvious landing spot for a teenager looking for a job is the food sector, and it's no wonder this kid found one. She should have been delighted to serve her parent and show her responsible self, and this should obviously have been responded to with a very generous tip. Unfortunately, the parent had other ideas!
The Award for The Funniest Mom Goes to ...
Having a mother is a great blessing, and we all love our moms, but having a mother who is also capable of telling a witty joke is quite rare and special. This boy thought he was being funny when he sent this photo to his mother, but she was having none of it.
A mother comparing her son's girlfriend to a rat has to be one of the wildest responses we've read on the Internet. Perhaps, this mother was passing a coded message to her son that it was about time he got himself a real girlfriend. Whatever the intent, we can be sure the message hit home.
To More Youth and Loneliness
Some mothers have a peculiar way of communicating with their children, and this is a perfect example of that. There is no denying that this cake is made with lots of love and must be equally tasty. The accompanying message makes it even more admirable.
We are not sure whom to blame here, whether it's the mother for not giving her son siblings or the boy for not being adventurous enough to seek out some company outside his home. On the plus side, the boy has only lived 16 years and has plenty of time to make up for the loneliness and prove his mother wrong.
You Have the Right to Remain Silent
Social media has, over the years, offered a platform for connecting with old and new friends, but it's always a good idea to be mindful about what you post because things can get out of hand very quickly. This boy forgot that his mother was on social media, and shared this somewhat inappropriate post.
On any other day and platform, this could easily pass as a simple typo, but not on social media. Nevertheless, his mother was eager to sarcastically tell the world that her son was actually not very familiar with the topic he was posting about. We're not sure how old he is, but it's certainly been a long time since weaning.
Mother’s Love in a Word File
Parents have various methods to show their love and encouragement for their children, but the modern ones are a step ahead of the rest. They not only use their words and actions to show that they believe in their child but also incorporate technical ways to depict how much they care.
Here's one such parent who used their child's computer to leave a simple yet impactful message to encourage them. It's nothing fancy or cheesy to make any child put a password on their computer to protect it from their parents, but it's an important message that we believe the kid needed at that moment.
Simple Way to Get Your Way
Kids think they are smarter than their parents. They might be in terms of technology, but not all parents have given up on it. Some know how to use their own devices to get their kids to do what they want.
This mother knew her child wouldn't be able to ignore the text and would definitely go to the kitchen to get the phone. She used it to her advantage and asked him to bring her some snacks. We would love to know what the kid's reaction was to this clever move!
Didn't See That One Coming!
Moms have great comebacks for situations where the child seems to be getting the upper hand. Usually, most arguments end with an "I made you" statement, which is accurate, but the word-play here is hilarious and must have made the child proud too!
The one-liner must have won her the argument and left her child speechless because who can think of a single word after hearing something like that from their mother? We hope the kid learned a lesson that day—not to mess with the woman who bore the pain to bring you into the world.
No Help, No Picture
Moms are always willing to cook delicious meals for their babies and other family members because it makes them proud of their work. They also add a lot of love with each dish, giving it a unique taste that we call "mom's cooking."
All they ask in return is a little help around the kitchen so that they don't have to do all the other things besides cooking. When no one helps during the cooking phase, no one gets to be part of the picture in which the chef and her food are the highlights. She deserves all the praise she got for this picture because, look at those dishes!
What's the Point of This?
Single-shaming is way too common among parents who, for some reason, think they are doing their children a favor by pointing out their flaws and helping them get their perfect match. Having said that, we understand most parents have their children's best interest at heart, but what does that have to do with singing?
We don't understand why this mother would say something like this to their child. Maybe she was only having a bad day and took it out on her son or daughter, or may be it was her way of helping her child. Whatever it is, this sort of behavior isn't helpful at all!
The Joke's on You
Honestly, if we don’t play pranks on our mothers, who can we prank? The expression on their faces is always priceless, and suddenly we start thinking of more ways to make them laugh. If you’re out of ideas, you might try out what this young lady did, but be prepared for the kind of remarks your mother will dish out.
This girl made a habit of recreating family photos with their dog Dixie and placing them in strategic places around the house. When her mother was done pleading with her to get rid of her practical joke, she commented that the dog’s graduation shot even looked better than her daughter’s. Yes, that table turned very quickly. Ouch!
Raising Potential Business Moguls
This little boy impressed us for having a different approach to asking for gifts. Christmas was around the corner, and he wanted to ensure that he got a great present. Instead of throwing a tantrum like most kids his age, he employed a very effective business tactic—manipulation.
He is still young, so his strategy didn’t pan out. Though the parents spending a fortune on cameras might not exist, this mom still got upset that her son would compare her to another parent. So, she simply made a similar comment about her little boy’s character. "Maybe they’re better kids" is a classic one-liner that is bound to get any potential business mogul to keep quiet.
Take Your Chores With You
This mom’s creativity is on a different level. Instead of using sarcastic one-liners to communicate with her son, she simply sent him a care package. It might not be the most effective way to get him to do his chores, but it does show how furious she was that her son forgot to take out the trash.
The solution? If he wouldn’t get his chores done before leaving for college, then she would send the trash directly to him. We can only imagine the look on his face when he tore open the box to behold last week’s trash. One thing is certain: next time he visits home, taking out the garbage won’t be a problem.
This Mother Spoke Out
As a parent, when something is troubling you about your kids, the best thing to do is to voice it out before it is too late. This woman’s daughter seems to be a very nice person, but, sadly, there aren't many people in her life. The truth is, she seems to relate better with her cat than actual humans.
We bet this girl also recognizes this sad fact about her life, but we doubt she appreciated the way her mother spoke on the matter. Still, we’re hoping her mother’s hard truth prompts her to make some changes in her life because, in her time of need, she’ll require the support of people.
The Mother-Daughter Selfie Contest
People share pictures on social media to get great responses from friends and also to feel good about themselves. There’s nothing wrong with doing that, and neither should it be a reason someone is bullied, whether by their mother or a stranger.
We don’t know if we should find this funny or just petty of this mother. Though she might not have intended to offend her daughter or anyone else with her actions, we’re hoping she doesn’t use such remarks again in the future. In our book, her daughter looks amazing, and no one should make her feel otherwise.
Touché Mom, Nice One!
This post confirms that parents have a sense of humor, and even if they don't show it often, you'll be rocking with laughter when they do. Moreover, youngsters get to a point where it's safe to banter with their parents; however, most do not know that when you give it, you should be prepared to take it back. This individual learned the hard way because the last thing high schoolers want to hear is a joke about their bad results.
We must commend this mom, too, for coming up with a savage comeback that sucked away her daughter's confidence. Now this kid has failed both at school and banter.
We Hope That Was Autocorrect
Autocorrect has a way of creating confusion only avoidable by profuse apologies and loads of explanation. We also believe that you've been in this situation countless times, either trying to figure out what the person meant or apologizing for your mistake. Regardless of your efforts to convince them that it was a mistake, understanding is critical, or the communication will get pretty awkward.
Thankfully, this person and his mom must've had mother-son memories good enough to convince him that the mischievous autocorrect was at work. Besides, he sounds pretty chill, mentioning the incident.
When Mom Wants to Be Left Alone
While this mom has decided to go MIA on her daughter, the little one isn't having any of it. Her daughter is doing her best to live up to the notorious title little kids have of being pestering brats. We can understand the mom; it's okay to want some me-time away from her "obsessed" child.
She counters back with a funny Mean Girls meme, which is the perfect reply to the barrage of messages she's gotten. Also, this mom has proved that maturity doesn't come with age and that being an adult doesn't mean you should lose your sense of humor.
When the House Pet Gets All the Love
Of all the savage replies we've looked at today, this must rank as one of the most unexpected, making it super funny. It comes with a sting that makes you read the sentence more than twice. We're sure we aren't the only ones who find it weird that Katie's mom mentioned her name in full and called the cat "baby."
We understand the rivalry between most kids and their parents' furry friends, but this girl looks happy with the pet. We still feel for her; it doesn't look like she's topping the "important people's chart." Katie will definitely have difficulty convincing her friends on social media that her mom doesn't love the cat more.
The Right Way to String Words Together
A gift and a piece of subtle advice are one of the most ingenious ways to keep a grown child in check. It almost always works like magic! This savage message from this mom to her kid isn't all that bad, though, since it's the truth.
It looks like sewing is this mom's hobby, and she's found the perfect way to communicate her thoughts. Unlike the needlepoint work most mothers use to make specialized gifts, this throw pillow design is unique. The simple patterns on the piece also make it very beautiful, and we hope the child keeps to the life lesson written on it.
There Are Better Ways
Confidence is one of the greatest things a parent can give their children. Hence, parents are to do everything in their power to increase self-esteem and make their children feel like they are the best in the world. This mother decided to do the opposite, and instead of saying something positive, she said things to hurt her child.
The mom said her daughter looks like a clown, and we are not sure she truly understood how much negative effect this might have on the kid. There are better ways to comment on someone's looks especially when you are a parent to them.
Get Your Kids to Do Chores
The question is, should parents pay their kids to do their chores? Well, this logic has been around for a while and it has been a means to persuade kids to do their chores more thoroughly. If they don't carry out their assigned duty, the parents get credited. Many find these tactics useless as they feel kids should contribute to the household without any monetary gain.
The purpose of this logic is to help kids have the consciousness to stick to rules and behave in acceptable ways. Many people, however, believe that crediting your kids at the slightest opportunity seems ridiculous and not a proper way to raise them.
This Isn’t Good Enough
There is excitement in our hearts each time we see parents engaging themselves on social media. While some use it in meaningful ways, others see it as a platform to do nasty things that could hurt their followers. A child's relationship status is never an issue to joke about as it could be heartbreaking.
This mom used her social media to mock her child's lonely state instead of her being the best companion. We feel sorry for the kid, and we hope he doesn't get back at his mom. No child deserves this from their parents, even though the mom probably meant it as a joke.
I Only Wanted Mom’s Validation
While it is essential to compliment your child's abilities and appearance, some parents would rather say negative things. If you are finding it difficult to believe, this message is a prove that parents who badmouth do exist.
This lady was so excited about the good comment she got from her colleagues concerning her look to work. We could tell that those sweet words would go a long way to make her day. Sadly, she reached out to mom for revalidation and got roasted on the spot.
Mum Went All the Way
Being a mother and watching your kids fall in love is a beautiful thing to witness. We have a lot of mothers who are concerned about their kids' relationship life, and sometimes they go out of their way to help them find love. This mom couldn't matchmake her boy, but she was willing to give him a book for guidance.
Self-help books are never hard to come by, which is why we wonder why this person has to share this chat online. Anyways, this could look embarrassing, but we are certain the child is trying to portray his mom as a caring and concerned mother.
