Do you remember you mom changing from chill to woman with a stick up her @#$! adult content

is it just my mom or does this happen to women who are jaded, already had kids, and are unhappily married?
what do i do to help her!? shes obsessed with the law and is soo uptight about everything
she never used to be this way about 2-5 years ago

  • like yesterday for example we are rusty's pizza and we got an all you can eat salad
    we had 6 people and got a family meal that came with 4 salads, so in total we had 5 salads (only one of which was all you can eat)
    so i asked the lady if i could share with my SO who got the all-you-can-eat kind and she said sure!
    i offered the salad bowl to my mom and said here you can have it, im just gong to share with him. she made a huge fit and said "what you can't do that! thats lying, its not yours, his salad is only for him, its not right to share it!" (she was yelling this and embarassing me) so i said "WOW" and my mom forced my dad to driver her home
    it was very childish of her to just leave and not enjoy the dinner as a family (since my cousin was in town from puerto rico)

    this is just ONE example of many of how she makes HUGE deals out of FOLLOWING THE RULES TO THE TEE EVEN IF WE GOT SPECIAL PERMISSION.

  • Is she going through menopause or something? My mom was like BeachyBabe's....she used to be super strict and everything had to done in a VERY specific way and if it wasnt done the way she wanted it then there was hell to pay lol...she's SO much more laid back and relaxed now and alot easier to get along with lol
