This hilarious mother/daughter texting fight has turned into all-out war

“You are an awful child. You know you’re killing me. You’re killing your mother, Elizabeth.”

Ordinarily, a message like that would be cause for alarm. But in the case of 36-year-old Ohio resident Liz Hammett and her dear old mum, it’s just one of many messages that sums up perhaps the cruellest and funniest mother/daughter text war of all time.  

First off, let us acquaint ourselves with ‘mom’. Here she is in all here shrieking glory:


If you've read her texts but don't know her.... this is my mother. I apologize in advance for the foul language.

Like a military pincer movement, not only does Liz torture the woman that brought her into this world through the medium of video, but also via text message:


Oh mom. Don't be so dramatic.

Yes my dad sat down in the kitchen but I'm told the remotes wouldn't work from there. This message came after his valiant attempt to make it work to keep my mother calm.

Feeling sorry for ‘mom’ aren’t you? Don’t. She gives just as good as she gets.
