    The 20 Types Of Moms That Use Snapchat

    For everyone who understands what it's like to have a mom on Snapchat.

    HOT NEW TREND: Moms on Snapchat. If you're part of the growing population of children with Snapchatting moms, then you understand what I'm talking about. I'm here to help. And just remember, you are not alone.

    There are currently five known stages of MSA (Mom Snapchat Addiction).

    STAGE ONE: Introduction. You receive a snap from your mom out of the blue. You think: OK, this is weird, but whatever. This could be cute.

    STAGE TWO: Addiction. You're receiving snaps all of the time. It's starting to weird you out. Is mom OK?

    STAGE THREE: Obsession. She can't stop. You're worried. Something is definitely wrong.

    It's scary.

    STAGE 4: PANIC. She has no filter. She's sending snaps to all of your friends. An intervention is needed.

    STAGE 5: Banishment.

    1. The dick-drawer:

    Obviously inappropriate and makes you feel uncomfortable. The ball hair is really the most troubling part.

    The fact that it's on grandma is even worse.

    2. The sleeper:

    She lives for the bus, the subway, and large groups of people in confined spaces. You're worried you'll get caught and punched in the face some day. It's not safe.

    3. The mom who secretly hates you:

    She lives for the applause. If you don't snap back, prepare to be berated with single-word snaps.

    She may even bleed.

    5. The mom whose snaps make absolutely no sense at all:
