10 Things Working Mothers Do Not Want to Hear

I don’t care if you’re a child, a co-worker or a spouse. There are some things you should never say to a working mother. Ever.

Here’s my short list:

  • The carpet feels wet.
  • I said you’d make cupcakes.
  • The garage door looks a lot wider than it really is.
  • No, my concert is tonight.
  • Your mute button doesn’t work. 
  • Did you mean to include a Happy Meal on your expense account?
  • Let’s host Christmas this year, honey.
  • I like you in flannel.
  • Toss me another six pack.
  • I thought you did the taxes last year.
