What I love about my mother is, she totally expects me to learn how to say all the words on the right, in every language just in case someone insults me.
Funny story about my mother.
When my mother first came to this country as a refugee, she didn’t speak a lick of English. She knew how to say basic things, like hello, please, and thank you, and she liked to recite old school romantic poems in english, but she didn’t know what they meant.
So anyways, she was mad malnourished from the war, which stunted her growth for a while, so at 21 they thought she was seventeen and sent her to highschool. So she had to deal with really obnoxious immature assholes that made her look super mature by comparison.
One of these assholes figured out how to say the equivalent of I think…”suck my dick” in Khmer, and proceeded to bombard her with that phrase. (I think he learned how to say cunt too but I’m not sure)
Back in Cambodia, mom would cuss her way out of a storm and haul ass, but in this case, she was stuck. She didn’t know what to say that wouldn’t involve this guy laughing at her. She merely attempted to say all the stuff her ESL teacher taught her, (aka all the stuff written on the left here) and of course that didn’t do shit.
He just laughed at her and kept saying “Suck my dick cunt!” over and over and over again.
Eventually she got so pissed she punched him in the face, and her friend pounded him with her biology textbook. The bus driver didn’t even bat an eyelash and snickered, since my mom and her friends were the only well behaved kids on that bus that were nice to him. (again classic spit balls and punching and kicking occured on this bus)
The guy stood there stunned, and when they arrived to school he waited for her at the bus entrance.
“Hey, what’s your name?” He asks, “Want to be friends?”
Mom merely says okay and they go on their merry way.
So my mom has always told me, “If you dont’ want to punch a guy in the face learn all the insults you can in different languages so you can cuss them out!”
And that is why my mom can be awesome sometimes.
EDIT! What he said was essentially the male equivalent of saying cunt. So he was insulting her using the masculine word instead of the feminine, he couldn’t even insult her properly lol.
