‘Meanest Mom in the World’ Stories are Making Headlines
Two stories surfaced recently on social media about parents who have both been called "the meanest mom in the world."
As a kid, I can remember calling my mom "the meanest mom in the world" about 100 times. As an adult, I can see that my mom wasn't trying to be mean, she was just trying to teach me life lessons. Hindsight is always 20/20!
The first story making headlines is from "meanest mom" and reality star Jamie Primak Sullivan. This is the post from her Facebook page:
The second is from a Minnesota "mean mom" named Amy Adams. She was fed up with her 15-year-old daughter being disrespectful, skipping school, and running away from home, so she decided to do something drastic: put her daughter's car up for sale on Craigslist. The original ad read:
"So, because I’m the World’s Meanest Mom, and my 15 year old daughter has decided that her grades don’t matter, that she can disrespect myself and her siblings on a daily basis, and that she has the right to skip school and run away from home, I currently have every teenage kid’s dream vehicle up for sale (because it’s titled in my name, I can do that, you see).
1998 Dodge Ram club cab. SLT, 5.9L V8, 158,xxx miles. Runs and drives decent. Lifted, and on 35’s, and comes with a full size matching spare. Previous owner cut off exhaust behind catalytic converter, so unless you enjoy breathing exhaust fumes, and migraines on a regular basis, I’d suggest replacing that. I was quoted $350 from John at Forest Lake muffler about six weeks ago.
It also needs a windshield, was quoted $250 from Greg’s Glass in North Branch. Has typical Dodge body rot meaning the rocker panels are completely gone for the most part, but has a brand new battery and alternator. I’ll even throw in the brake pads that I have sitting here, since that was my next project on it.
Heat is hot, ac is cold. Shifts smooth, and drives as well as anything lifted on 35’s. Kelly Blue Book in fair condition is $3321, so my price reflects windshield and exhaust quotes. Feel free to make me a REASONABLE offer, snd we’ll talk, but I don’t want your XBox, or your 80cc dirt bike that’s currently sitting in milk crates because you bought it as a project, and only got as far as taking it apart…
If the person driving the truck on a daily basis will be attending North Branch high school next year, you will get a $300 discount. Why? Because I AM the World’s Meanest Mom, and would love for her to be reminded every day next year of all of the mistakes she made…"
In honor of these two tales of parenting, we want to know: why were YOU the meanest parent in the world? Let us know what your child's complaint was in the comments!
