There’s some magical force that immediately makes women ALL start doing the same “mom things” once they have kids. And sure, some moms skip a few of them, but no one is totally immune.
A new survey asked people how many of these classic “mom things” their mothers did when they were growing up . . . or still do now. Check ’em out:
1. Leaves you in the grocery store line while she goes to grab one more thing . . . 90% of people’s moms have done that.
2. Texts with just one finger . . . 83%.
3. Won’t get you a snack when you’re out because you “have food in the house” . . . 82%.
4. Gets into never-ending conversations with people she runs into at the store . . . 73%.
5. Still holds grudges against kids who wronged you years or decades ago . . . 69%.
6. Tells you that you look beautiful or handsome even when you look terrible . . . 68%.
7. Holds her arm out in front of you when she slams on the brakes . . . 58%.
8. Calls celebrities by the wrong name . . . 55%.
9. Literally always has tissues on her in case you need one . . . 51%.
10. Hands you mail that was addressed to you that she’d already opened . . . 49%.
