Parents know that kids can be a real handful sometimes. Well, maybe even all the time. But good parents would never do anything to harm their children, even at their worst.
However, Mom has every right to blow a gasket when her kids do something utterly destructive or dangerous.
Kids know that Mom has a tipping point when it comes to her patients. They get away with things all the time, but when something really, really terrible goes down, they know that they’re in for at least a good grounding.
Of course, the fear of punishment is usually much more intense than the punishment itself. And now, 12 Reddit users are sharing the hilarious times they really pushed the envelope as kids and were left saying “Mom’s gonna kill me!”
By “kill me,” they clearly mean that they knew they were in for a huge amount of trouble, but the phrase reflects exactly how much trouble they knew they were in.

“My mom told me not to put my feet up on the foldable table in our living room.

I seriously contemplated running before she got home.” — SheZowRaisedByWolves

Well, 7 seconds to 0 it exploded and blew the door open and me being the window licker I was at the age of 8 had my face like 3 inches away.

“My cousin and I thought we should make some baked potatoes because we were super hungry. I ask if he knows how and he said we just wrap them in foil and put them in for twenty minutes cause that’s what his mom does. We decided we better go to the store for sour cream and to throw the taters in and they’ll be done when we get back. What we didn’t know was you’re supposed to use an oven for that particular cooking method and when we returned we had an obliterated microwave waiting for us on the counter.” — Batmanstarwars1
“I dared my little brother to light a bottle rocket in the house. He didn’t want to at first but decided he would do it but he was gonna shoot it into the toilet.

The priest quickly ran to stop me and my mom was mortified.” — HoosierDoc
“Typical ‘just watched WWE’ wrestling with the brother in the ‘ring’ that was my double bed, had my brother in a headlock ready to fake some move or another, he spun around in an attempt to get out of it, his head went into the wall, through the plaster, nice brother shaped dent in the wall, did the only right thing and put a poster over it to delay my death.” — fury-s12
