Parents in general can be so annoying. It’s nobody’s fault…it’s just the way the Universe is. Your mum is bound to get on your nerves and half the time, she knows it.

If you grew up with a Ghanaian mother and are still living with her, you will definitely agree that this is how they all apologize when they are in the wrong.

Anything but a heartfelt “sorry.”

Asking for your help for something very unnecessary

“I want to send your graduation picture to Aunty B in the US. Come and show me.”

“Oh come and close my zip for me.”

Asking if you need anything when they are going out

“I’m going to the market should I buy anything for you? It’s like you need a new shoe or that ice cream you really like.”
