Mother's Day is just around the corner, fellas! Time to return the favor to the greatest woman in your life with gifts or by being extra good! Labyu, Nay!
Here’s an idea for those who want to go the proverbial mile: click CONFIRM REQUEST/FOLLOW now on your mom's friend request on Facebook, Twitter, and other social-networking sites! "Not cool, bro," you might say. Yes, it's not—but she'll really appreciate it.
Adding your parents on social media is a no-no for many of us. It could be because you’re afraid of being nagged online, or that you don’t want your pals to tease you about being a momma’s boy or a daddy’s girl. “Hoy brad, nag-comment nanay mo, tinatanong kung nag-lunch na ang little boy niya. Ha ha!” Kahiya, men!
We tell you this however: Having your mom on your Friends List actually isn’t all that bad. And if you really think about it, it could even be great! Below are five very simple reasons why!
THE “THIS GUY’S SENSITIVE” ANGLE
We don’t know about you but we think many girls will find the fact that you’re friends with your mom on Facebook somewhat adorable. And when you follow that up with a reasoning like, “Hey, my mom’s the bestest girl in the world and I’m proud of her!” they’ll instantly know that there’s a sensitive, sweet guy beneath that entire macho, papogi facade. Expect the “Awws” to come when you play this card.
SHE'LL BE YOUR BUILT-IN STUPID POST FILTER
As in real life, we also say stupid things on social networks. And once you do it, wala na, iyak na. You can’t turn back time, but if your mom can see what you post, at least you’ll have something additional to think about before hitting the Submit or Send button.
This, dear friends, could save your ass from a buttload of regret. Nothing like the thought of your angry mom asking WTF is wrong with you to force you back into your senses.
