Irish Mammy Sayings: Do you think this is a hotel?

Irish Mammies come out with some justifiable and hilarious sayings. My own mother was a homemaker and extremely proud of keeping the house looking beautiful. She was also very strong willed when it came to “doing things the right way”. Despite my siblings and I’s best efforts when we would occasionally try to help with the chores we would do them not according to her high standards.

Instead of learning about these high standards and replicate them, we choose to take the easy option. Beds would be made without the bed sheets straightened, dishes were half dried with soaking wet tea towel and bins would resemble the leaning Tower of Pisa before we would bring them outside. Every now and again my Mam would reach her boiling point and the sayings would flow. Rhetorical questions would be directed at us from a young age.

As we got older, we became brazen in our responses – carefully gauging what the mood was and if we could get away with trying to make her laugh. I never made this hotel “do not disturb” sign for her in my youth and thinking back is was probably my finest act of self preservation. 😬😜😂
