Dad jokes are having a moment right now - understandably, since lame dads are hilarious.We love talking about the kinds of "dad stuff" stereotypes - like freaking out if anyone touches the thermostat and wearing weirdly tall socks with some New Balance sneakers. One Reddit user pointed out that we're all knee-deep in dad stuff, but moms have just as many quirks! They wanted to know what some typical "mom things" people could think of. The responses were too much fun!


The initial question:

We always hear about "dad" things, what are some "mom" things?

The comments had people laughing, feeling nostalgic, and bonding over the sorts of mom things that seem to be pretty much universal.

Here are some of our favorite replies, edited for clarity when needed.

Mom's A Magician

Mom: "Go find XYZ item".

Mom enters and item magically appears

Mom's Timeline

Mom 1 min ago: "Where are you??"

Mom 2 min ago: "Why aren't you picking up my calls?"

Mom 3 min ago: "You are normally home at 5:32pm on the dot, it is 5:33pm, are you home? Where are you?"

Then you call her back less than a minute after the last call/text and she doesn't answer.

Before You Go

Be sure to use the bathroom before you go anywhere. You never know when you're going to find the next one.

I live 2 minutes from work and still use the bathroom before I leave.

"Expert" Knowledge

Hearing a 'fact' from an 'expert' on the news once and believing it forever.

i.e. My mom still thinks I should be getting nine hours and fifteen minutes of sleep after hearing that figure on the Today Show over a decade ago.

Rage Vacuuming 

Vacuuming when they're angry so everyone knows they're angry and everyone is super uncomfortable and it's loud and scary and I just want to die.

Mom Strength

Moms are freakishly strong when they need to be. I remember my wife running away from a pissed off skunk, one kid in each arm.

Good Ol' Brake Arm

While driving with you in the passenger seat they throw their arm across you if they have to hit the brakes.

Jacket

Temp might get down into the 70s. "Make sure you bring a jacket" - A jacket is what you wear when your mother is cold.

There is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

But even those who don't practice an organized religion tend to believe that there is a Heaven, a happy joyful place where our souls will remain for eternity.

No two people share the same idea of what heaven would be like, but everyone who believes in it probably has an idea of the first thing they'd do after entering the pearly gates.

Redditor WeDidItGuyz was curious to hear what would be top on everyone's list upon entering the afterlife, leading them to ask:

"If heaven exists, what’s the first thing you’d do?"

"Fun facts" generally refers to a tidbit of information about a specific topic which the general public might not have otherwise known about.

But the first word in that term can be misleading.

Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.

Redditor Alternative_kachocho was curious to hear some "fun facts" which were anything but fun, leading them to ask:

What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"
