My mom followed

Her:what's wrong baby?

Me: i had an argument with Olwethucan you believe he wants me to learn house choreshe practically said im only useful in bed nothing else

i couldn't hold back my tears i just cried

Her: well baby men are differentif that's what he wants the do it for himyou don't expect him to cook?

Me:but ma i am not made for domestic thingsyou also know thatwhere would i even begin to learn all those things

Her: come on no one is made for domestic choreseveryone learnsyou can buy recipe books

Me: but ma i'll never be like Okuhleits like she has a manual of everything

Her: aisuka you will learn and then you will persuade your husband to hire a maid it won't be hard you are a woman

Me: ma sex won't make him say yes to a maid he made that clear

Her: you know what if sex doesn't work then do the house chores to a point that he gets boredgive him a little in bed and tell him you are tired if he fights just tell him you can't be good at everything

WOW my mom is a geniusif work a lot around the houseand give him lil in bed then he won't have no choice but to hire someone because men want to be satisfied 

Me: ma you are the bestthank you so much

Her: not to worry dearnow we will go to that useless girland she will teach you the traditional dishes just so you can balance your meals

Her: she is my sister's child so that practically makes her mine

Oh my God i don;t believe she is painting herself like thee best step mom everif only people knew the real person she is
