Today, I made 2 beautifully decorated cakes for Mother's Day. One was for my mother in law and the other for my mum. I came down to pack my mum's and found they had both been half eaten. My brother in law decided he wanted to try a bit of both to decide which was better. FML
mancuneanway tells us more :
Ok OP here. Thanks for turning this into a funny situation. My brother in law is the baby of my husbands family. By 'baby' I mean a 21 year old man who eats, eats, eats! I didn't feel the need to tell everyone not to touch it until they had been given it as I had written Happy Mothers Day (Mum… and Mum…) on them both. They were both red velvet cakes decorated the same way to avoid any jealousy amongst both women. I ended up just scooping the writing off and playing it off as a random cake I had made. My brother in law still doesn't see what he did wrong but I shall be breaking his hands if he touches my birthday cake this month lol.

you could if you wanted to #13 Happy Loss Of Land Day! No no you're right it doesn't have the same ring to it.
In all seriousness my newsfeed on Facebook was filled with Happy Mothers Day and I about leaped out of bed scared that I forgot mothers day (and a little bit offended that I was forgotten) before I Googled and realized it's still March.

As an American born in England with English family members, I'm super jealous of Guy Fawkes day. I tried to start a similar holiday with my buddies, but it turns out my fellow Americans aren't as into burning effigies of our slain enemies. *Sigh* Well, at least we have Independence Day, which I love and always go all out for.

I like how #4 went in fully gramatically correct and all stern complete with a full-stop at the end, as though she has the upper hand and was just that confident her comment would bang

Right because when I see 2 beautifully made cakes that don't look store bought, I'm going to definitely think my sister in law totally slacked off while doing it.

Even if he didn't think she worked hard on them it's a complete asshole move to do. Especially if they're for his own mother. The guy just has no respect.

#23 No I agree it's silly to assume everyone is from the US but just FYI not everyone can see country or gender so people can stop with the "are you blind there's clearly a gender symbol" or "it says UK right there" because not everyone has that option.

In Australia we use the word "Mum" rather than "Mom" (like the UK) but celebrate Mothers' Day when the United States does. It's all very confusing really!
