8 things your mum probably told you as a kid

For some uncanny reason, it seems that mums around the world say the same things to their kids.

In celebration of Mother’s Day, we gather some of the phrases your mum may have uttered to you at some point in your life.

1. “Wait for me in the queue here.”

Don't leave me mum!
Worst. Feeling. Ever.

2. “What’s this I found in your room?”

What is this in your room?
Nothing…

3. “Have you brushed your teeth? “

and if she insists on checking.
Show me your teeth.

4. “BE QUIET!”

Be quiet!
Being not able to adhere to this command usually leads to…

5. “Wait till your father gets home.”

Somebody's gonna get hurt.
When dad steps into the picture, things are gonna take a turn for the worse

6. “Next time then you know…”

Using the Mum Language Translator, we know that this means, “Don’t do it ever again.”
But “next time” always comes sooner than you realise.
I regret my decision.

7. “Who made this mess?!”

Followed by, “You should be ashamed of yourself.”
Who made this mess?

8. “Did you do what I told you to do?”

Did you do what I told you to do?
