My mom has been insisting that I spend a couple grand to buy a new mattress (she’s worried mine isn’t firm enough…even though it IS extremely firm). She raised me to sleep on a board (yes, literally a wooden board) with a 1 inch foam cushion on top of it. My fiance bought a really nice new FIRM mattress 2 years ago when it was on sale from Macy’s…so I told her I didn’t want to spend the money. She keeps telling me “it’s only a couple grand” to buy a new one instead of hiring a wedding photographer. Sorry, but a couple grand is a lot of money…and I’d rather spend some of it on a photographer!!
Somehow this month long conversation escalated today into her shrieking at the top of her lungs at me how the mattress my fiance bought is super cheap, he’s super cheap, and he will never buy me anything nice and expensive in my life. Then that turned into how he bought me a cheap ass engagement ring (i.e. it’s not like a 2 carat perfect solitaire that she pictured).
URGHHH MOMS. I love her but she is super cray cray sometimes. Also, I call her and my dad separately 1-2+ times a day (they live together but apparently I have to tell them things separately…they are babies) and she emails me so I get to hear about things like the mattress a billion times. If I don’t call them every day, apparently it’s assumed I am dead and hell breaks loose.
Feel free to post your own silly arguments you get into with your mom over nothing.

@rawrrawr: Mom’s are crazy. I have a Japanese Mom, super crazy. She just gets and idea in her head and cant let go. Her current one–I cant get pregnant because my house is dirty. sigh…

My mom and I almost never fight, or even disagree about anything. Literally, I can’t remember the last time we had a disagreement about anything. Probably in high school. She is so laid back and go with the flow, and just wants me to be happy.
@KoiKove: The dirty house thing is nuts! haha

My mom is SO nutty sometimes (both of my parents are, but I think my dad is getting calmer as he ages, and my mom is getting kookier).
Today she called all mad because apparently like 3 days ago I told her I would call her later, and then I never did. We normally talk every day, but I am super busy right now. I was like, “You couldn’t pick up the phone and call me?” and she was like, “Well you said you would call me back and I was just waiting for you to do that!” For three days. So that now she can be all mad about it. Omg.
She also gets insane ideas in her head and can’t let go of them. We’re having a family reception after our intimate wedding that she is basically planning. (I pretty much said, I’ll take the actual wedding, you can have this party. Just leave me alone about my wedding!)
For this party, she (for some insane reason) does not want to use the catering that my FI and I absolutely love. It’s not expensive or anything, it’s just that we would have to pick up and drive the food ourselves. She’s like, “But what if you get in a car accident on the way to the party?” Um, if we get into that bad of a car accident, I don’t think there will BE a party!
She also complains about how expensive things are, but is choosing to take off work the Friday before the party and the Monday after. She also asked if I wanted a band! (This is for, like, a casual BBQ.)
Oh AND she said she was going to ask my 83-year-old grandmother to sew 100 tiny muslin bags for the flatware because she’s not sure “how to display it.” I was like, seriously, mom, no. That is not cool.
