Today, I had dinner for the first time with my boyfriend's parents. It was awkward enough without his mom asking, "So, what do you do for fun, besides my son?" FML

Proper answer: nothing. Proceed to put on sunglasses, and moonwalk out of the room.

If his mom is already that cool with you, it will be an easy relationship for you OP.

I'm sorry to be that guy, but it should be "you're".

The very definition of epic parenting.

we knew what he was trying to say

I don't see anything wrong with his mom's comment.

Unless she didn't say it as a joke and said it disapprovingly. I really hope she was joking though and trying to lighten the mood.

I agree with 41. If OP says it was already awkward she was probably just trying to break the Ice. And she did. And it was awesome.

why can't people use 'you're' and 'your' 'then' and 'than' right? i mean after all the years on the web? you're = you are. your = possessive. come on people, except you're not a native english speaker. gee whiz *rant over* OP at least it's better than parents who'd like to point a shotgun at anyone their kid is going out with. Plus, it's hilarious.. where'd your funny bone go?

#22 -- When people say they're sorry or they hate being "that guy", it's usually a blatant lie. Ease off, if he posted it from his phone the autocorrect might have screwed him over, rather than helped him.

Well 51, I don't think it's fair to rant about grammar when you aren't putting capital letters in correctly. Plus "except you're not a native speaker"? That's missing a word.

Awwwww c'mon we don't need the grammar/spelling police here, lighten up!

Cheers to that 76!

Honestly joke or not a joke I wouldn't want my boyfriends parents saying that to me. Awkward and embarrassing. I would also be a little offended. I feel like they should respect my privacy. I don't talk about their sex lives. I would think that would be disrespectful. I know I'll be thumbed down but those are my views on the subject.

That's not exactly a good conversation starter.
