How Much of a Mammy's Boy Are You?

How often does your Mam did your washing for you?
I have my own washing machine, thank you very much.
Ah sure, she'd do it the odd time.

My Mam always does my washing for me. Sure, I'd just make a mess of it!
How often do you call your Mam?
Every day.
Ah, a few times a week.

I don't call her. She calls me.
Can you cook at all?
Ah no, I'm useless. FEED ME, MAM.
I try my best, but it's not like Mam's.

Of course I can. I'm a grown-ass man.
Your socks: who buys them for you?
My Mam, every Christmas :)
My significant other.

I do.
You visit your Mam's house one evening. Do you expect:
A quick chat and a cup of tea.
A bit of supper.

Tea, supper and a lunchbox filled with dinner for the next day.
Has a significant other ever explicitly accused you of being a Mammy's boy?
Yes, but I think they were joking?

Your Mam buys you a shirt that you know in your heart of hearts isn't very nice. Do you:
Wear it in spite of the fact it isn't nice.
Keep it in a drawer for ten years, but refuse to throw it out in case it hurts her feelings.

Tell her outright that you're not mad about it. You're both adults, after all.
Do you feel personally offended if anyone else suggests that they have the best Mam? (i.e. better than yours)
I wince a bit, but I get over it.

Pick a Sex and the City character.
Pick a Mammy.

You're an out and out Mammy's Boy.
You're basically Daniel O'Donnell. Not only do you love your Mam, but you basically wouldn't survive without her buying you socks or making your supper.
