You should know!

Today, my mom screamed at me for not cleaning out the coffee machine. When I told her that wasn’t part of my chores and she never asked me to do it, she screamed at me for not doing it out of the kindness of my heart. FML

I would think that this should depend on whether or not the kid drinks coffee. If they don't than mom is screaming at them for not doing what she, as the actual user of the machine, should be doing. It's not about "Not caring" if it is actually a case of not cleaning up what is entirely someone else's mess.

If you do your job (chores) cause you have to you do the bare minimum. If you do it because you care, you figure stuff like this out. I’d also be mad if my kids didn’t care. This will apply in marriage too

I figure the biggest user of an appliance or who who uses it first is the one who should clean up after. Sounds like your mom is being super lazy and there is no excuse to yell at you for not guessing the thoughts in her head. I had to deal with this with my mom growing up. As an adult, with a wife, I clean things because I love my wife and dont want to be a burden on her, but my wife at least tells me if she expects something from me. Not just yells at me because I dont “guess” what she wants. Best to make sure your mom spells out what she expects. Not post facto.

Hey this is op, had to make a new account bc I got locked out of my old one. I literally never drink coffee or use the coffee machine. There was no warning, she just lost her mind that one day because as usual, I did not clean the coffee machine. I honestly believe my mom just looks for reasons to be mad at me.
