We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the most savage thing their mum has ever said or done. Here are some of their responses...
1. The Smart Alec
"My mom was talking to me about my 2-year-old baby sister and she said 'she’s the smartest kid I’ve ever had'."
– Submitted by cassidyb488dd7874
2. The Morbid Mum
"My mom has a tendency to be morbid. For instance, after the dog died she changed her passwords from 'Scruffy1234' to 'Scruffyisdead'. Anyway, about a year ago she was boarding a plane to go on vacation and I texted her 'Have a safe flight!'. She responded with 'It’s not up to me' and turned her phone off."

5. The Side-Eye
"I told my mom that I was the best daughter she was ever going to have. She stopped what she was doing, side-eyed me, and told me that I am 'her only daughter and she was already disappointed'."

6. The Helpful Suggestion
"My mom asked how I was feeling after battling a severe sinus infection. I sent her a pic of my 'sick' face. She responded by saying she could send me a 'makeup tutorial to fix that.'”

9. The Holy Hush

10. The Silent Songstress
“You’ll never get a boyfriend if you don’t stop breaking into song.”
– Submitted by ladyknitsalot
11. The Facebook Page
"When I was in my tweens, I went through a phase of dyeing my hair constantly, with box dye that would stain anything it came into contact with (sinks, doors, towels, the bath). One evening I made the classic mistake of leaving my Facebook page open and logged in, and so my mum created a group called 'Stop Chloe Dyeing Her Hair' and invited every single friend I had on Facebook."

12. The Joker
13. The Compliment
"I was upset about a dye job that made my blonde highlights look orange and my mom didn’t even attempt to say it looked good and just went, 'At least you look good in hats'."

"My mom tells me my cat is my only friend."

15. The Christmas Sweater
"I told my mom I was looking to buy an ugly sweater for Christmas. She just turned her head and looked at me for a while and said 'Why do you need one? Your face is enough'."
– Submitted by pearll482beb7d3
16. The Horror Film
"When I was about 11 years old and just got my first period, I was in pain and sad. So my mom wanted to cheer me up and let me watch a movie about someone else ‘in my situation’.
The movie she let me watch was ‘Carrie’…

17. The Neighbourhood Crush
When I was in the fifth grade our washer/dryer was in the garage. One day I stained my shirt, and we both were in the garage so I took it off so she could spray it. The garage door is open, and my mom yells, “Oh hi Jake!” (The neighbor I have a huge crush on) I turn around mortified and topless while my mother is dying laughing. There was no one there. She still cries laughing every time she thinks about it.
