Today, I was having a conversation with my mother during which I described something as being pungent. She thought I had made up the word, so I grabbed the dictionary to show her that I hadn't. She then became enraged, threw the dictionary at my head and told me never to talk to her again. FML

Mizzaroo tells us more.

Actually, I was trying to show it wasn't a made up word. :)

Can you imagine playing scrabble with that nutter? It would be so vapid.

Maybe she should have looked up the definition of "overreaction"


Smart mom ya got there op...

Yeah, think we all got that. The post wouldn't be here in the first place if the mom was normal.

In this case, the good qualification is "hysterical bitch".

It seems like this Fml has a serious case of literal Facebook.

Knowledge is power.

sticks and stones may brake my bones but so will a dictionary

Can you imagine playing scrabble with that nutter? It would be so vapid.

Vapid, eh? THAT WORD DOES NOT EXIST! You made that up!

Spare me from your projectile dictionaries, PLEASE! I implore that you extricate me from this cerebral-cracking badness!

Everybody! Dictionaries ready! Aim.... FIRE!

Dear old vapid! Stil remember that FML...

Hmm.... What's worse, a single blow to the head by the Websters Unabridged dictionary (please not the OED. That's instant death), or 100 small tile projectiles from a scrabble set?

Webster's it'll hurt a hell of a lot more than those measly scrabble tiles.

Unless you throw them really fast like a BB gun. Death by a 1000 cuts.

My mother has accused me of making up words during Scrabble... She just misspells them. =/

Oh I've played scrabble with her in the past. I stopped after a while.

Well hello OP. dwelling among us now? :P

Not really how vapid is used, but nice try.

momma in this case is not a real smart lady"

Is she a fake smart lady?

Maybe she should have looked up the definition of "overreaction"

Ops mom definitely overreacted but I have to admit that I absolutely hate being corrected or made to look stupid. I don't agree with ops mom going as far as she did because there comes a point where one has to admit they're wrong but some people can't do that.

You hate being corrected? Would you rather have people laugh at you behind your back because you "hate" being corrected instead of learning and having it only be a one time thing? Grow up. Personally, I hate people who are so insecure in their intelligence that they have to accuse others of making stuff up. Just because YOU don't know something doesn't mean it's not true. Suck it up, verify the facts for yourself, and move on. If you can't handle being corrected, you deserve to look stupid.

As I like to say: when in doubt, Google to find out!

Coming from someone whose name is Iknoweverything. Tehe.

Freshberries - I totally agree! Who the hell are these pompous asses who troll around correcting people? It's so annoying! Oh, and by the way, OP's* overreacted,* OP's* wrong,* Understand this: if no one ever corrected you, you would continue making the same mistakes over and over again. Truly intelligent people know that everyone makes mistakes, but the smart ones learn from them. Not understanding that is what makes you look foolish.

However, in this case, OP was not really correcting his mom. The mom was attempting to correct him by indicated he'd made up a word and he was just proving his case.

Dear 57, I am a she. ;)

43 I don't understand why so many people are jumping down my throat all I said was I didn't like to be corrected but there comes a point when me or op's mom have to admit they are wrong and some people have difficulty accepting when they are wrong. I don't understand how my comment was so terrible.

This is a real FYL (sarcasm)... I doubt it was one of those heavy dictionaries, because if it was you would have had time to dodge when you saw it coming. Also the big ones don't have a great range. God forbid your mother ever throws a pocket dictionary at you.

Dont you know not to mess with Mama Bear OP?

Example: Your mother's stupidity smells pungent.

Well that just makes a ton of sense. I think you tried a bit too hard to be clever -.-

I think her dying brain cells are starting to become pungent

Stupidity can't smell, stupid.

If stupidity could smell 7, your comment would be reeking of it

Oh well, I am sure it does.

Maybe you guys can bury the hatchet and overcome this. Try inviting your mom places so you two can spend time together. My suggestion: an English class or a game of scrabble.

Pungent: The antonym of vapid.

Antonym: The homonym of cinnamon

it's not your fault she has a limited vocabulary
