16 Situations You Will Never Be Too Old To Call Mom About

16 Situations You Will Never Be Too Old To Call Mom About

"Girl, you'll never believe what just happened to me today."

As a college graduate and now newlywed, you'd think I would have the common knowledge of basic things and no longer need to call or text my mother for every single thing I find myself being uncertain about.

These are just several of the non-exaggerated thousands of reasons I contact my mom for or have heard my husband or friends call their moms for.

1. "Mom, how long do I cook chicken for?"

2. "So, how do I know that the chicken is finished?"

3. "I stepped on the spike strip under my carpet, am I going to be okay?"

4. "I had a really bad dream and woke up with anxiety. I know it's 3 a.m., but are you awake?"

5. "How many Tylenol's should I take for my headache? I know it says two, but what if I don't really need two?"

6. "What's the best brand of _______ at the store?"

Enter your own item in the blank- mine changes daily.

7. "My dog is being absolutely insane, but I don't want to hurt his feelings. Tell me what to do."

8. "I'm just really bored right now, entertain me please."

9. "How are you doing? I really am missing you."

10. "Girl, you'll never believe what on Earth just happened to me today."

11. "Insert name here" just did this to me and I am really upset right now."

12. "Mom, I am driving home after work right now and my husband won't answer so what's up?"

13. "Mom, I don't feel like talking to my husband since I'll talk to him later or he won't answer me. I miss you, so talk to me while I drive home."

14. "It's storming outside and I am really scared. Tell me what to do even though you are four hours away."

16. "Mom, I left the creamer out all day on accident, soooo is it still good I really need some coffee?"

17. "My husband bought our dog a shock collar. It breaks my heart, will he hate us? Does it hurt him? Can I just keep it on vibrate?"

18. "I love you, Mom. I just wanted to hear your voice."

Of course, most of these are completely silly and not at all serious conversations, but they are actually legit reasons that either I have reached out to my mom about or people close to me have reached out to theirs about.

My mom is someone who I know will sit there and listen to me vent and then turn around and tell me what's going on in her own life. I can tell you that our conversations will never be dull with each other and will most likely begin with one of these random questions or thoughts.

10 things incoming freshmen shouldn't do to avoid being labeled as the Drunk Girl Everyone Stares At

Coming into a frat party, you are on thin ice.

353
views

To all my incoming freshmen, your welcome week behavior translate to how you will be the rest of the year, and let me tell you, it's not easy to make it out alive of welcome week. Newfound freedom leads many people to doing stupid things that will haunt them the rest of the year, so freshmen, here are a few things you should avoid doing to survive welcome week.

1. Don't makeout with the first guy that gives you attention

Because you're the incoming class, all of the guy's eyes will be on you. They're like vultures waiting for a prey. Don't get wrapped up in the first Brad you meet because I can promise you that the guys will talk about how easy you are after.

2. Don't makeout with anyone on elevated surfaces or populated areas

One of my biggest pet peeves is being on an elevated surface with my friends and then looking over my shoulder and seeing two people basically swallowing each other. You do not need to show off to everyone that you are getting action tonight. Take your man to a more secluded area to save my eyes from your nasty PDA.

3. Don't be the girl offering everyone shots

If you're the girl hanging around the bar looking for a group of people to take shots with, it's not going to end well for you honey. It's trashy to be downing shot after shot and they hit you faster than you would expect. Honestly, I would expect to see you over the toilet at the end of the night and no one wants their head in a smelly frat house bathroom.

4. Don't scream when your favorite song comes on

We know that any new summer poppy song is going to be played at the frat party to get everyone riled up, and we know that you probably learned all the words before you came to school, so you don't need to break our eardrums screaming to your friend that you love this song so much.

5. Don't be disrespectful

Coming into a frat party, you are on thin ice. The people who have been coming to this house for years have seniority over you. Don't forget that. There's no need to shove people out of the way or be rude to them just because you lost your friend at the bar. Ask politely to squeeze through and you won't get kicked out.

6. Don't pass out

One of the biggest things I can warn you about is to not go over your tolerance. I understand that some people are more experienced than others, but your're endangering not only your life but the lives of many. And its a big mood killer to have the cops show up to a frat party.

7. Don't take your clothes off

I know that frats get crowded very easily and they also get very hot, but do us all a favor and keep all articles of clothing on. Nudity is only allowed in private places and too much skin is extremely slutty.

8. Don't do "Rush Tits/Ass"

My father always told me he never wanted to see me on one of those "Barstool" accounts and hopefully your parents don't either. Rush Tits/Ass are the most regretful thing that you can do in college because once it's on the internet, it's never going away. Also, you may not know, but frats have private photo folders filled with images like that so those can really go anywhere the brothers want them to. Make the Brads wait to see it in private.

9. Don't brag about your past successes

Introductions at frat parties are hard, but please for the love of God, don't tell me about how you were a cheer captain in high school or how you dated the quarterback of your football team. It's the past and I don't care. Talk about what you are thinking about doing on campus.

10. Don't go home alone

The absolute number one rule in a woman's handbook is DON'T GO HOME ALONE! If all your friends have left with Brads and Chads, don't feel the need to find you one also. One in every four girls experience some type of sexual assault on a college campus and you do not want to be a number in that statistic. If you ever need someone to Uber home with you, go up to another girl and ask if you can join her ride or pay for her to ride with you back. It is better safe than sorry.
