We asked the Hardcore Nation on Facebook to, “Name something your mom hit you with when you were little.” We took the famiglia’s top answers and created this list.
As most of us know, old school generations of Italians may have used other methods of punishment than people would consider appropriate today! Although at the time we did not really prefer it, now we can look back and have a good laugh. We always remember that it made us the person we are today!
1. Back Scratcher
The item that was meant for pleasure… but ultimately used for pain! Who has been hit with the back scratcher more times than they use it?
2. Rolling Pin
The classic rolling pin.
The weapon that your mom probably learned from your father… The belt is never fun!
4. Her Shoes/Slippers
When we tend to get hit with all these objects… We soon learn how to run pretty quickly. Lucky for your mom, she has an arm like a Major League Baseball pitcher! Sometimes there is no escape!
5. Her Hands
Not only do they know how to talk with their hands… they know how to use them as weapons too! Just because there is not an object around does not mean you are safe!
6. A Paddle
Wooden objects always do the trick… unfortunately.
7. Anything Close to Her
This one always leads to some great stories. It is amazing how many different house hold objects could be used as weapons! Let us know in the comments which ones were used on you!
8. And of course… THE WOODEN SPOON
Last but not least, probably the most common weapon of ass destruction has to be the wooden spoon! It is funny how many memories can come from this one. You could act up and get whacked with it, then an hour later your mom would be stirring up the Sugo for a nice Sunday dinner!Thank you for viewing! Remember that this post is all out of love <3
