When I was younger, I was obsessed with watching Saved by the Bell after school every day, and my mom would always, without fail, call it Who Rings the Bell?
And, when I used to watch Headbanger’s Ball on MTV, she would call that show Harvey Wallbangers.
Dammit, Mom! Get it straight.
We all have trivial little things that our parents do that drive us nuts. And people are sharing their hilarious stories on Twitter. Let’s take a look.
1. Getting angrier…
Is there something trivial that your parents say that really fucking annoys you for no good reason? My mum accidentally calling Pets at Home 'Pets City' for the past twelve years is right up there

2. Pesky Blinders.
my mom refers to the band Bombay Bicycle Club as One Man and His Bicycle despite repeated corrections. also she misread Peaky Blinders once as Pesky Blinnders (???) and now refuses to call it anything else

3. I kind of like that better.
My mum calls I’m a celebrity get me out of here “celebrity jungle” and it proper gets on my nerves for literally no reason

4. Peperami pizza.
Actually, aye, instead of calling it ‘pepperoni’, my Dad says ‘peperami’. Could be at an Italian restaurant and my Dad will legitimately ask the waiter for a ‘peperami pizza’. Send help.

5. I like this a lot.
Instead of saying “take a chill pill” my dad says “take a chill-out tablet”

6. Why? Whyyyyyy???
My mum will always ALWAYS call KFC “Kentucky fried chicken” and I know that’s what it stands for but where’s the need to call it it’s full name, or even just “Kentucky” sometimes???? Why????

7. Lots of love.
Writes ‘lol’ at the end of every message, no matter how sad or serious. Thinks it means ‘lots of love’.
Mum: Just texting to say your cat has been put down, nothing they could do, it’s for the best. LOL x

8. The Bart Simpson Program.
Instead of calling it “The Simpsons” my Mum just used to say “Bart Simpson” and it really got on my wick

9. This is amazing.
When I was 16 I wanted puff daddy’s album my mum went in to the shop and asked for puffing Billy…… I just turned and walked out.

10. Still thinking about it
Yo one time my mum said ‘fantastic beasts and where to get them from’ and I’ve never stopped thinking about it

11. That is disgusting.
my dad calls salad dressing “lettuce lotion” and it makes me feel sick every time he says it.

12. The one and only website.
My mum says ‘it was on the website’ like the whole of the internet is just one site and I can’t stop thinking she’s right.

13. A bit of a difference.
My mother in law calls antihistamines, hysterectomies.

Boy, do those bring back some memories…
Did your parents ever do this? And did it drive you up the wall?
