My mom once told me she actually gets impressed when people stand up to her

She’s a very stern and very intimidating woman. She’s nice most of the time, but she’s not one you want to get cross with. I should know. 😅 Anyway, I always figured she’d be the kind who doesn’t take kindly when people clap back at her, but she says she actually admires them for it. Because she’s so bad-ass, everyone’s always afraid of her that when they show they’re not scared of her, it leaves an impression on her. 😯 Which is pretty bad-ass within itself, lol.

I'm pretty much the same.

My mum is pretty intimidating to a lot of people. She does have a few chips on her shoulder, which she's aware of, but she'll stare anyone down. Doesn't suffer fools [i]at all[/i]...

But if people stand up to her - and I've heard more than one person say [i]'Martika, you are talking shit, girl!'[/i] - she will respect that. Maybe not at the time - LOL! - but she will, eventually.

@Ducky there will be times where your mum is totally out of order and wrong and needs too be told so

@smiler2012 She’s logical. She has been wrong before and she always owns up to it.

Not trying to be mean to your mom, but I can't stand people like that lol.

@DearAmbellina2113 I don’t get it, lol
It is possible to stand up and still be respectful. Maybe that is what she admires.

I will tell people if they're being an idiot. Otherwise I'm too bored with them to care.

@Jenny1234 It’s not like she’s mean, she’s just serious.
