Assalamu Alaikum


i asked my mum last night if shes EVER been bored EVER in her WHOLE life! like even once, if shes ever felt restless/agitated because of doing NOTHING at the moment

and she said

...


.....

NO !

I REPEATED MY QUESTION hoping to make CLEAR what i meant by bored! she said NEVER has she EVER been bored> She made it clear! MY MUM HAS NEVER FELT BOREDOM :|





now i ask that any of you with a mother over 50 years old go and ask her if shes ever been bored in her life :|

im very curious to hear their answers !

Mum's not quite 50. She says she's never been bored either. Every time me and my sisters say we're bored, she goes 'How can you be? There's so much to do! If you don't want to do your work, at least help me with the work, if you don't want to do that, then engage in Zhikr and prayer. Never.Be.Bored!'
That's what she always says...

^^LOL! That's mums for ya!
I know I'm the most laziest ungrateful kid ever, but I love my parents to bits even though I may not show it all the time lol.
I think my dad's amazing Masha'allah, he seems to be able to explain everything about everything, and whenever he's faced with a new situation he adapts real good.
He's never been bored either..
Just goes to show, is there something lacking in our generation, where people seem to be constantly bored, always wanting to go out, see something new (no, not in the exploring sense, but just in the 'im-so-bored-i-want-something-new' sense)

well no it wasnt in the dictionary a hundred years ago, because ther was no dictionary yet! besides they only had like 3 words total, "ooh" , "aah" , and "ginsta" :p

ok im just kidding

its coz old people kno life, they kno u never be bored nd they kno u cant be bored because life is nonstop action nonstop trouble, everything u do is doing something........................i sound old :D

My mom's in her late 40's, I just asked her.
"mom, have you ever been bored?"
"yes, i contemplated suicide many times because of boredom :muddlehea"

That's my mom for ya...;D

I asked her again and asked her for a serious answer and she said "well of course, everyone gets bored occasionally".

Maybe she doesn't remember when she was bored? She can also have another definiton of boredom than you have or she might not even admit it to herself? People can have a lot to do and still be bored, maybe she thinks boredom is when you have nothing to do? Her definition of the word is the key to understand her.

I can't remember when I was bored, only when I am bored at the moment do I remember being bored. Uh...

At the age of 50, she's most likely to have lost memories of her teenage years. And it is usually during those times, that we tend to use the word 'bored'.

Well my mums going to be 61 in a coulpe of weeks, i know only allah swt knows when they will die , but i know mums more near the end of life , so inshallah i will just make the most of each day i have with her

bcuz she wants u to help her out....im just surprised a brother would clean when his mum tells him to, without gettin a big fights started :mmokay: ...
mashallah.

my mum wont tell me either but i jus guess, i go "oh issit because ur pregnant?" nd she goes "...:happy: yeh yeh thats it" ;D :p ... i dont mind, i'll clean up the world for her, nd wipe out all the people she hates, which means nobody tho coz she dont hate noone.. fine i'll wipe out all the peple who piss her off, talk bout her behind her back (i think i'v handled my aunties tho so that wont be necessary) , who stare at her without smiling :heated: how dare they! nnnd of course, nethin else she wants.
