The first time I swore in front of my mom, she nearly keeled over.
In the heat of an argument (you know, one of those fights that tends to follow teenagers around), I said, “GO TO HELL,” to my mom and immediately regretted my decision. She was stunned. I was stunned. The dog was stunned.
If I happened to be Jason Bateman and not a teenager from the pits of hormonal hell, this would’ve been me.
After a nice week of grounding, I went back out into the world knowing that I should never test my mother like that again.
However, I did it over and over again because teenagers are genetically awful. That being said, I think what this mom did to her son when he jokingly swore at her via text will make him change his ways.
