It ‘Ain’t Half Hot, Mum

Small Town America

Why is that I can express anger about my ex but when my mum does it totally riles me?


My friend – let’s call her Tina – can dis him (she doesn’t even know him but she’s emotionally bright) and I don’t mind but when my mum does it sounds mealy-mouthed. She doesn’t actually say anything negative about him, it’s more her tone of voice. That disapproving, small town, victim-like whine.
