Irish Men And Their Mammy's Coddle!
# 1 : Friday 3-2-2006 @ 13:04
What is it with Irish men and their attachment/fear of their Mothers? I just text a friend there asking him if wanted to grab a bite to eat after work.
He text back saying that his Mam had made his dinner and would freak if he ate elsewhere. He's 26!

This isn't the first a man has said something like this to me about his mother. I have heard all sorts from their mother buying there bus ticket every week to applying for loans for them.

Is it an Irish thing or all men like this?

Nah I think it's just Irish men! My mam makes the best coddle around and if that was on the menu wild geese wouldn't keep me away. But now that I've a squeeze I'm spending less time at home and am not relying as much on the homestead as usual. It takes time Penny for a fella to leave his mammy's apron strings. Sure look at Daniel O'Donnell!

thats a bit sad, but i think in most cases its the mother who is at fault with being over protective, some guys just dont want to upset them.

Forget about that it's his mother who is cooking him dinner just for a moment.

You call him asking him to go for dinner with a few hours notice and he says no because he has already arranged with someone else that they are going to cook him dinner, That doesn't sound unreasonable to me??
