People Are Using #SorryMom To Confess Their Hilarious Sins On Mother’s Day

“Sorry for all the dead insects you found in my pockets as a child.”

Mother’s Day is a time to spoil your mother. Take her out to breakfast, buy her something nice, and post a cute photo on Facebook.

But it’s also a great day to apologize for those times you were a little shit when you were younger. Or maybe still are.

Using the hashtag #SorryMom, people are reaching out to their mothers on Twitter and saying the things they probably should have said a long time ago.

Mothers put up with SO MUCH.

Like pockets full of dead insects.

Car accidents.

#SorryMom for that time I 'borrowed' the car when I was 13. Who knew the R on the gearshift actually meant reverse.

— J.A (Julie) Kazimer (@jakazimer)

And the literal reality of giving birth.

#SorryMom I tore your vagina asunder when you birthed me #ThankYouMom

— Truck mememan Barry (@Barry_Niswander)

There’s the classic hair-dye confession.

May or may not have just dyed my hair.. once again #sorrymom #happymothersday #pleasedontcrythistime

— Aydan Williams (@WilliamsAydan)

The tattoo confession.

I got a tattoo. #SorryMom

— Nathan Baine (@bainenathan)

And the “I didn’t actually spend the money you gave me on the things I said I needed it for” confession.

I spent $60 of the $100 you gave me on alcohol and the other $40 on food #SorryMom

Sometimes you just want to clue your mom in on the ~lingo~ and it backfires terribly.

#SorryMom I explained to you what a MILF was and you now strive to be known as one - actually I'm sorry to myself

— Skeeter Jones (@skeetsonyoface)

But also, no matter how uncool you think your mom is, she knows what pot smells like.

When you said, you smelled what you smelled, and knew what you smelled, and I said, no, never, not me, it's not pot. It was pot. #SorryMom

A lot of people reached into the past for times they had lied, or been rude, or just plain annoying.

I called my mom her name till I was six. I was the most irritating toddler ever. #SorryMom

— Miranda (@miranda66613)

#SorryMom I did spill a coke on your grey cashmere sweater then hung it back in your closet.

— Laurie Brown (@lbrown1213)

While some apologized for having nothing to apologize for.

#SorryMom for being such a dull child that I have nothing juicy to confess now.

— Tracy Keller (@TracyKell)

And others said sorry even though their mom would never see it.

I joined twitter and won't tell you my name #SorryMom

— Kate Astrophe (@Kate_Astrophee)

#SorryMom I had to block you.

— Marcoe Polo (@Marcoe_Polo21)

Some people chucked good hard truths into the mix. TAKE THAT, MOM.

#SorryMom but professional wrestling is scripted, rehearsed and staged.

— Al B. Junior (@itsjusmebong)

And others knew they were doing the wrong thing, but did it anyway.

#sorrymom I left the car on empty again....

— Demetrius Henson (@lifeisgreat47)

There’s also a lot of moms not getting presents this Mother’s Day, if Twitter is anything to go by.

I didn't get you a gift #SorryMom

— #kuwtf (@Bekahface18)

#SorryMom I didn't buy you a proper gift.

— Rachel C (@rchilds9)

#SorryMom no gift

— Inglwoodswgn (@WillFck4cream)

And we’re guessing this attempt at breakfast in bed didn’t go so well.

#SorryMom for the burnt toast

— Michelle Whelan (@BanjoPatty)

But some of the #SorryMom tweets were just really sad.

#SorryMom for causing you years of sadness

— No Chill Django (@KingOfTightEnds)

#SorryMom for being so far away this #MothersDay

— Jason Caceres (@jasonscaceres)

And a lot tapped into a fear many of us share: not living up to what our mothers might want for us.

Cats TOTALLY count as grandkids. #SorryMom

— elsiebrown (@msbacktalk)

With kids, and grandkids…

Not having kids. I hope you like our pug. #SorryMom

— Tommy Campbell (@MrTommyCampbell)

My ten cats will count as your grandchildren #SorryMom

— Alicia Macias (@_aliciamacias_)

…and jobs, and degrees.

#SorryMom looks like that political science degree didn't work out. I'll be in the basement.

— Huntley (@NotAHuntley)

You helped pay for 8 years of university and I don't have a job in any of those fields. #SorryMom

— Mollie Smith (@MollieOneechan)

I make memes on the internet. I wasted the life you gave me. #SorryMom

— A Fucking Cat (@ACatIRL)

But this person sums up a lot of the #SorryMom tweets.


— Luke Hemmings (@aliciavicente5)

We’re sorry, Mom. But we love you.
