Caps off for the dead, gentlemen.
Well your mom might get mad, but the wife might actually tear your dick off if you did that to her.
@Jesus Chrysler, This legit happened to me, except I DID talk to my mom on Sunday. FaceTimed with her and my grandma so they could see my kids. Then I got a scathing text from my mom the next day about how it was the worst Mother’s Day ever. I live three hours away, what else could I do? And my brother sent her chocolate covered strawberries, and he got the same shît. Dude, Mother’s Day sucks ass.
@Berntley, that's not a holiday problem, that's a person's expectations not being met problem (no matter how reasonable or unreasonable they are)
@Salem, Yeah. She’s apparently been having a very shîtty week, and has been plagued with some emotional issues for some time. I get it, and can usually diffuse the situation (I work in mental health, so it’s pretty much all in a day’s work), but my brother is pretty goddamn stubborn. Last I heard, he blocked her number and Facebook. So now I DEFINITELY have a holiday problem, since that’s the only time I go back to my home town...
I'm sorry, but I don't think it makes sense to do stuff for your wife on Mother's Day. She's not your mother. I've been married 6 years and I am no stranger to expectations but I just think it's stupid and selfish. I don't want my wife to do anything for me on Father's day, but my 3 year old is welcome to draw me some unintelligible blob to put on the fridge. Let me focus on my mom on Mother's day. And you focus on your father on Father's day. Anyway, rant over. Upvote, downvote, reply, ignore. Just make sure you wipe and wash your hands first.
She's the mother of your children, and your significant other. Apologize to your mom (duh) and make up for it with dinner on a day all for her rather than a hallmark holiday.
