Arab moms are everything. They're sweet, kind, loving, fickle and also maddening.You can't help but love them and get annoyed by them at the same time. Dealing with them can drive you nuts because much of what they say or do just doesn't make sense to you. It makes you wonder, because their way of thinking overlaps with the rest of humanity.
These cat gifs pretty much sum up our reactions to our Arab moms.
1.You're a girl: Don't hit, curse, scream or breathe
Don't tell me what to do!
2. Everything is eib
This is how you end up with e'ad nafseya.
3. She constantly compares you to your brothers\sisters
Doing that makes me hate them.
3. She worries and panics way too much
4. She throws a slipper at you because.. hek!
5. She abuses the word Inshallah
Oh my god, does that mean she might say yes?
6. When she does make up her mind, she tells you to go ask your dad
Eno lesh el nakad?
7. She says no for no reason
Annoy me and I'll find a way to annoy you back
8. The "Ha warriki" hand gesture she does indicates that you're going to die very soon
10. She starts useless conversations at the door
11. She still talks on the phone loudly with relatives
Lower your voice! This isn't 1999!
