"Mothers Call At the Worst Time"



You MUST see this video! It hits so close to home for me...I have called my son and told him to read this post and watch the video!  It is a TV commercial for GEICO Insurance.  They always have funny ads these days although I must admit I do miss the gecko with the great English accent! (And I even know the actor behind the voice, he is Max from "Eastenders"!)

Here is the video....as I say, this could have been modeled after us! (And by "us" I mean MY family, not ALL mothers!)  Geico calls the ad, "Moms Call At The Worst Time".


I have a great talent for calling my son when he is trying to record something!

    1. It was the squirrels that made it most like me, I really need to do a post about the little rodents!
      And thanks, I might have taken that photo, I usually take photos and leave the very top of the head off!

    1. I wasn't sure if you would be able to see it (I know sometimes you can't) so I am glad you could see this one!

  5. I've told all of my children that since they are so much busier than I am that they should call me when they want to talk. They have homes, jobs and families that keep them very busy. I on the other hand am not busy at much of anything that can't be interrupted.

    1. I am pleased to tell you that I have now learned to send a text and that way, he knows he needs to call me and I don't call him and bother him at busy times! YAY, I will someday catch up with everyone else!

  6. I love this commercial, she's so calm, matter-of-fact and of course the son is in a mess.

    1. Yes, and please notice the SQUIRRELS in the background! That is just how they run around our fence in the backyard AND we have had them in our attic too! So, you see, it really is just like us!!

  7. I find this commercial hilarious. She is so oblivious to her son being busy and he never mentions that it is a bad time for her to call.

    1. Yes, but that is why it is just like us too! Our son is like his Dad, very polite and he wouldn't tell us if he is busy, just try to speak as well as he could. He really is a nice guy even if he isn't 007!! That is, as far as I know...hmmmm. :-)

  9. In our family, it's my Sweetie who always calls at the worst times -- usually just as i'm heading off to use the facilities!

    1. Speaking of that, does it surprise you to hear women on their cell phones when you are in the Ladies' room, or is it just me? :-)

  10. I had absolutely no idea that the Geico Gecko was Max from Eastenders. Talk about a small world. I suppose we just don't get those ads over here. Or I never see them.

    4. Oh! And really, the real reason it is so funny for our family, is that we also have a problem with SQUIRRELS!! :-)

  12. That commercial makes me laugh every time I see it! It reminds me of one of our Docs who has had an ongoing fight with squirrels since he bought his home years ago. I miss that little Gecko too!

    1. We have had the same battles with squirrels and that is another reason why it is so funny to me, it really hits close to home! Score another point for the gecko! Some of the ads are just not that funny!
