A mother of four has had enough of being told she asks too many questions.
The mother known as Mummy Buck has taken the drastic move to cease all lines of career/life/general questioning concerning her daughter Pippy, 16 nearly 17.
Speaking to The Daily Grief after the school run this morning, the former ‘80s chick’ said:
‘it’s like walking through a bloody minefield. Just as you’re about to get somewhere BAM there’s an almighty explosion. I literally can’t do right for doing wrong” she complained.
When challenged, she did admit her line of questioning can sometimes be, well, a lot, “but how else is a mother supposed to know what’s going on? Sit back and wait for my friends to tell me?” she howled.
She went on to reveal what brought this drastic decision about.
“It all started this morning. We were driving to school as normal when Dippy (teen son) asked Pippy what she wanted to do when she left school.
It was at this point, I made my first mistake, I answered for her. The second mistake, I divulged she wanted to become a Paediatric nurse. Well, that was it, she went off like a rocket bellowing the following:
‘that’s why I don’t like telling you anything, I haven’t said I WANT to be a paediatric nurse, I said MIGHT, now you’ve taken it as gospel and probably told EVERYONE”.
Well, you can imagine can’t you, the car was rocking with the backlash. Dippy was hanging his head in shame in the back especially when the Lollipop Lady starting pointing her lollipop at us.
That’s how loud our car was.
Fortunately, I managed to reassure the kids by pointing out the shouting will just be mistaken for the usual din, heard coming from our car, they love radio station ‘crap-that’s-rapped on 103.7’.
It seemed to settle them.
And it’s that word ‘everyone’ who is ‘everyone’? Both my teens use this word, a lot but usually for just a couple of people maximum! If I say, everyone, I literally mean everyone I know……..yet I’ve hardly told anyone about her career choice!
Sources close to the Buck family claim, that Pippy 16, nearly 17, took to Snapchat later that day to bitch about Mummy Buck and what happened in the car. She raged about how Mummy Buck butted in with a load of bullshit even having the audacity to put Pippy in her place when challenged.
Apparently, Snapchat went mad with thousands of her teenage friends sympathising , virtual hug emojis were downloaded several million times over. The sympathy for her was overwhelming.
It caused such a stir Snapchat temporarily went down due to ‘teenage overload’ causing mayhem. Pippy was seen wandering around the house in further distress, shouting ‘come on, come on, work’.
Recent ‘parental crime figures’ show Mummy Buck is just one of million+ Mum’s worldwide committing the same crime ‘asking way too many questions’.
‘No matter what she asks it’s the same’ a close friend revealed, ‘Pippy is either, on rare occasions really chatty and open or she’s on complete answer lockdown.
A local teen expert Dr. Sum Ting Wong told the Daily Grief:
It’s all about timing. It’s all about catching them in the ‘right’ mood and NOT as a lot of parents classically do, ‘push’ it. He went on to say if you look at the recent teen ‘bugbear’ survey, it shows parental questioning at no. 2 and how its starting to spiral out of control, especially when teens are in Year 12 at Secondary School.
Pippy 16, nearly 17, was asked for her side of the story. She refuted her Mums claims, complaining:
“Mum always ‘over-eggs’ a situation, it’s always my fault. She went on to say “I’m literally fed up with it, as soon as I get in the car the questions start……
“How was your day? What did you have for lunch? Blah, blah, blah”.
“Worse still, she doesn’t listen. Often, she’ll ask me the same question twice, even though I’ve already told her the answer”!
“I mean how would you feel when as soon as you get in the car, after a hard day at school, your mum started showing an interest”?
When asked about the eye rolling, tutting and attitude, Pippy denied all knowledge. It’s nothing more than Mummy Buck misreading signals, confusing them for ‘rudeness’ when in fact it’s Mummy Buck who has the problem.
Asked to explain what she means by this she said ‘I can’t win. It’s never her fault!!
It’s like when I’m on my phone, she’s always asking who I’m on my phone too, what I’m talking about. It’s so irritating. It bugs me, why does she need to know what me and my friends are doing?
I don’t ask her about her text messages, or who’s she on the phone too. Well, maybe I do sometimes, but that’s different admitted Pippy 16, nearly 17.
Finishing up, Mummy Buck explained that she and Daddy Buck have discussed possible questioning strategies. They are now certain they have a plan which allows them to move forward.
Mummy Buck said: ‘It gives me hope I’ve never had before.
