Things you dread your parent saying
“Have you ever watched Jeremy Kyle?” – hint – even during unemployment… no.
“I hope I’m not on The Facebook! The internet is just for perverts and weirdos. They get at your information through the wires”
“I love you and your brother dearly, and I wouldn’t be without you, but if I had my time again, I wouldn’t have had children.”
“Have you been keeping up with Coronation Street? [Insert recital about a particular storyline as if it’s a real situation]” – particularly amusing as I’ve never watched it out of choice, and have never watched it at home
“You’re not fat, you’re just heavy built, like your nan. And you do like your pudding. Not like me, I was Miss Pelsall 1962, I have very fine bone structure. LOOK AT MY WRISTS!”
“The gays wear leather caps. It’s part of their uniform.” – Yes, she was being serious.
“They can’t both wear dresses! One of them has to be the man!” – my mother upon realising that there was a lesbian couple getting fitted for their wedding dresses the same time as me.
“Promise me you’ll never marry a black man”. – I was 11 at the time.
My mother is ace, it’s like there’s no gate between what she thinks and what she says!Posted 4 years agometalheartSubscriber
‘Your dad’s just had a pulmonary oedema and has been rushed to hospital…’
Followed a couple of weeks later by:
‘The doctor thinks mum has had a minor stroke, can you come and take her to A&E for a scan?’
(Mum seems to have recovered, dad had to have heart bypass surgery and is still recovering).
It was a rough couple of months though.Posted 4 years agorogerthecatMember

You have a Brother called Mark, he lives in the Huddersfield area.
New keyboard please!! 😀
Moved to Cornwall with the future MrsCat then got a call from my Dad to say Mum had been rushed into hospital (in Rotherham) with multiple bleeds into her brain and suspected sub-arachoid haemorrhage and unlikely to live.
20 years later and the dotty old bat is still with us.Posted 4 years ago
