Oh brother.

Commercial crap aside, take the one bloody day and be nice to your mother for crying out loud. Make her breakfast or take her out to eat somewhere. Jeeze.

Okay who pee'd in your corn flakes this morning?

Wow, it is the one day a year that Mom'* actually get recognized for all they do!
Yes it is important to celebrate and tell those around you that you love and appreciate them every day, but does that happen....NO!!! So as a mom, who does EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING, and sometimes get looked over, or swept aside, dude SHUT UP!!! This day is special to all moms. No we do not need fancy gifts, and meals out. You know the best presents I got this year, was the card I got from Andrew, and the "I love you Mom" from Jessica. Oh and that I know that PDad is going to get Bone Evil ready for me I know I am supposed to be moderate, but this makes me mad!!!
How dare you! Moms are the ones who tell everyone else around them they are doing a great job, even the men. We are the ones who kiss things better, and put everyone else ahead of ourselves. Ad we don't mind doing it, but it is nice to get a little nod once in a while.

Sorry to all those wonderful people in this club to appeciate their moms, and dads for that matter, which I must say is 99.9999999999999% of the people here.

if you think i dont appreciate my mom, then you need to re-read my posts. i love my mom and have nothing but respect for her. she was a single mother of two children and took three sometimes four jobs to raise us as well as she could - even thought that meant she had to put her own life on hold for 17 YEARS. she means more to me that i could ever express.

point is, she deserves more than one day a year. the fact that some poeple dont give more, doesnt give anyone the right to expect it on one random day. its like if i were to say to someone "look. next tuesday. i want to be appreciated for everything i do for you. i expect you to treat me nice because I AM MAN." id be laughed at by any woman. i agree with you pontiacmom. mothers deserve to be appreciated for all they do.

if a father tries to say "this is my day to relax and be appreciated for everything i do" on fathers day, yeah, most people go along with it. but its still scoffed at. instead of saying "thanks", the reaction ive heard is mostly along the lines of "oh shut up. you dont do nothing around here. why dont you go mow the lawn?" its scoffed at, and i call b.*. pick up the pile.

as for how dare i? how dare i have an opinion and express it publicly? or how dare i speak out against the woman for oppressing men? ( ) mothers deserve constant appreciation, not ONE DAY A YEAR.

you guys act like im one step away from burning crosses in peoples lawns because i actually talk about these things.

as for fathers day... well see what i have to complain about that day. for reference on that day (to make it easy to point this out to me), these are my complaints on mothers day:
expectation of gifts
complaints of having to work on "mothers day"
one day gives the impression that is enough

i think thats all. i miss any?

I feel that women are never satisfied Typically because they feel that they have had it bad for so long with men dominating the workforce and getting paid more than them.

Now its equal opportunity and women are still complaining about us men!! Go figure.

I used to buy my GF flowers here and there, but now it just doesnt happen. So my GF reminds me of this and asks what happened? you dont buy me flowers anymore ( I do, but only on occasions) So I said to her, "wheres MY flowers?" Why dont you buy ME anything just for the heck of it?"

She became very quiet and subject was changed.


Goes to show ya, women, IMO, are never satisfied!! and you know who we have to blame? Society!!! It shapes our world!!

For the record, my mother does not expect gifts or a meal or anything special like that on mothers day. However, I bought her a really really really nice 5 absolutely paid by me spa visit, she almost Died when she saw it. Plus we all went out for supper on Saturday. If one day isn't enough, then suprise your mother or grandmother on more than just one occasion, that would be the thing to do, if you don't already do it, I don't know many people who don't.

I think it is pretty safe to say somewhere along the lines you had a bad experience with Mother'* Day. Nobody would rant about it unless they had...

With that said, everyone is different. If you have witnessed this bi***iness on Mother'* Day (if you haven't this thread wouldn't exist), clearly you would have a different outlook on Mother'* Day. I would say my mom didn't skip a beat yesterday. She still cleaned, painted, etc. I am 99% sure she wanted to. We got her a couple small gifts, and I know she appreciated them. But I know for a fact those gifts did not make her day...more or less it was the thought of being thought about that she appreciated most. If she only loved the gifts for the gifts that would be rather materialistic. More than the gifts, I am pretty sure she liked the hugs and what not more. This was no different than any other day. For the record, I hug my mom several times a day
