Every mom knows, there are some times when you're just ready to blow. Whether it's an issue that's been bugging you forever and your long-burning fuse has finally reached its end or you're just having one of those days when every last thing goes wrong, there are lots of reasons for moms to lose their cool. And yet, somehow, moms have a bad reputation for turning into raving lunatics over virtually nothing. 

It's really not fair, which is why @thats_inappropriate made this video. She wants to show people an example of why moms might "go ballistic." She wants to show them what happens when you've been asking your husband to do a chore for over a year and he still hasn't done it and now the dog peed and the kids stole the scissors...it's kind of a complicated story, but it's also an unbelievably frustrating one.

Ugh. Makes you want to tear your hair out on her behalf! This is always how it goes when moms hit their limit...it's one thing after another after another until you just literally can't deal. The people around a mom in this state usually don't understand why the mom is so "worked up" (one especially insulting way to put it) and just want her to relax about whatever the issue is, but by the time a mom hits ballistic mode, it's too late to relax. Something needs to get fixed. 

As one commenter put it, "We don't rage over a single thing, it's the accumulation of things!" Another commenter wanted to know, "Why do they wait until we turn into the exorcist to do everything we asked?" A valid question, to be sure.

The takeaway: Moms have a right to "go ballistic," and when they do so, they're just having a justified breakdown and need help.
