Things That I Hate

“Mum”

Why do people type “mum”? You seriously call your mom your mum? What the heck, it’s pronounced mom. Can’t you speak English? If you can’t go back to where you came from.

  1. “Mum” is British English and completely legitimate. It is an abbreviation of “mummy”, whereas “mom” is short for “mommy”. Different pronunciations sometimes lead to different words.

  2. Amazingly, this is the second post I’ve seen on this ridiculous complaint. Are young people completely unaware of the existence of other countries?
