Well, this is kind of a sad story, if I do say so myself…
What kind of a mother wouldn’t want their little child to call them “Mommy”?
I guess they’re out there, as you’re about to find out. Take a look at this story from Reddit and stick around to check out how readers responded.
Don’t call me Mommy? Okay.
“Apparently this happened when I was about 3 years old, but my mother has held it over my head for the last 20 years.
My mom was on the phone with my grandmother and I wanted to get her attention for something. I did what any 3 year old would do and tugged on her leg and called “Mommy” out to her. She gave me an annoyed look and kept on with her conversation. Whatever it was I needed it must have been really important and I kept at it. After a few more tries, she eventually shouted at me “Stop calling me mommy!!”
From that moment on, my first little malicious compliance switch went off in my head, and I only called her Mom or Mother from then on. She was always heartbroken for years after this and often brought it up. I was her only kid and it embarrassed her to no end being called mother in front of other people when I was so young.
And to rub salt into the wound, I still call my Father “Daddy” to this day.”
Now let’s see how Reddit users reacted to this story.

And lastly, this mom had it thrown right back in her face by her kid. Ha!
