I have never had a fight with my Mom before where I just put my foot down but today she pushed and I responded with more of reflexes than anything else. Since this is a first for me, is it ok?
My Mom gets really wound-up with simple discussions that I, quite frankly, find adorably funny. Who gets heated over the plot of "The Haves and Have Nots"? She does. To me, thats funny and I dont take it serriously.
So we were watching Mad Men and I noticed that Don was wearing loafers to work in the back yard. I said, "Hey, he could have worn boots.... I think the writers are trying to make a statement about who he is..." My Mom then says a lot... about how men in the 50s didnt own tennis shoes and they wore loafers to work in the yard, go fishing, etc.
I stated... thats ridiculous, they had boots back then. To break the argument we asked my uncle and he said they wore boots. She was already excited by this moment but him agreeing with me made it so much worse. She started yelling at me, told me my problem is that I dont listen, and to SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP.
At that point, the record stopped. I followed her and stated, "You will NOT talk to me that way. Do I make myself clear? I do not speak to you that way and you DO NOT speak to me that way. You WILL NOT be direspectful." She keeps saying SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP. .. though, I think she got the point. I highly doubt she will do it again.
So what do you guys think?
Trivial. Yes, I know.
