phone mam

This comic sums up your annual Mother's Day phone call perfectly

Or perhaps every phone call home, to be honest.

DID YOU RING your mam yesterday, on Mothering Sunday? Then you’ll know exactly what’s going on in this comic by Irish artist John Cullen.

Somehow ringing your mam to wish her a happy Mother’s Day turns into a laundry list of things you simply need to do, probing questions about your job, and reminders to ring your Aunty Mary and say thanks, for god’s sake.


All you want to do is phone your mam. You end up questioning your life and your choices. We know that feel.
