My mother is/was a Grammar Nazi.
Me: “Ma, can I have some more ?”
Ma: “MAY I have some more? And don’t call me ‘Ma!’, I can’t STAND it. Call me anything but that.”
She did not stop correcting me until I was around 40. I’m saying I couldn’t express a single thought in multiple sentences without her harshly correcting me (there was always something I did or said incorrectly) until I was 40 — meditate on how that shaped me over four decades. As awful as she can be though, I am truly grateful that she taught me that doing things correctly and properly really does matter.

“I never should have had kids!”
To be fair, this wasn’t said to me, she was bitching with my “Uncle” because our oven was falling apart, a hanger held the door on, and my wild lesbian linebacker clown girlfriend ripped the door off when we were goofing around, we were maybe 13. So mom was freaking and completely drained, I get it. But I was lurking after I hid in my room, and overheard her say it. Shit like that sticks with you forever, even when intellectually you understand the person doesn’t actually mean that, it was just them having a very low moment.
I had a therapist who I shared that story with....she told me that she had a client who had a brother who drowned when he was quite young, maybe 8. He was there when his brother drowned, and when the adults finally came, his father was so hysterical and shocked, that he turned to his son and said, “this is YOUR fault! You should have been watching him!”
Many years later, father and son discussed that, and the father had zero memory of saying that, and apologized to his son. The moral of the story from the therapist was that this man carried his father’s words from that day with him for decades — and the father had no recollection that he said something so awful, we must face these experiences so we can move on from then. We carry these wounds with us, and they will never heal unless we face them. Words have power, especially when they come from a parent.

My mother,, who suffered from poor health on and off for as long as I could remember used to say 'If you've got your health, you've got everything'.
Of course, as a prissy little gayling I thought she couldn't POSSIBLY have been right, but as I wheeze into old age, I can look back and definitely appreciate what she was saying.

You could paraphrase anything Faye Dunaway said in Mommie, Dearest and get the gist.
Except for the wire hangers. For one thing, my mother got wire hangers for free. Like boxes of them. She could have started a scrap metal business. Even though I have no wire hangers, I have inexplicably developed the habit of hoarding hangers. Teal colored plastic ones are my favorite.
Trust me, when I die, whoever is stuck cleaning my place will say, "WTF is up with these teal plastic hangers?"

R105, my mother was the same. She emitted a continual stream-of-consciousness monologue all the time, with no filter whatever. She had no compunction about saying the most wounding things to a small child.
Her theme song was, "If I hadn't had children, I could have been a star." Never mind we lived in a cultural capital, she never worked, and she had live-in help, so there were plenty of opportunities notwithstanding our obnoxious presence. Also, she could nether sing, dance, nor act.
To meet the definition for clinical narcissism, you have to have something like 5 out of 9 criteria - she had all of them. And this was before narcissism was ever a thing.
And yes, there was the "Go get my cigarettes." I was 12 when I finally started refusing. I fucking hate smoking.
She used to slap me hard across the face and I had to stand there and take it. When I was nearly 17, I hauled off and slugged her back. My father gave me a hell of a lecture, and told me I wasn't allowed to do that, and I told him I had a right to defend myself against assault. She never hit me again.
She was quite beautiful. And died in immense depression after my father died and there was no one to prop her up.
