why does this bother you...?

Did you know, that right this second, hundreds of millions of people around the world are debating whether Goofy is an animal or some strange, mythical messiah-like disney creature. And that argument, whilst wholly fabricated, is about as relevant as this thread.

I say Mum. But when I'm calling her it usually sounds like MAAAAAAAAAAM. Or Mother when I'm being extra nice. And sumtimes Mwmmy. No not a typo - Mwmmy. But never EVER 'Mom'.

My mum sometimes calls her mum 'mom' (brummie)
my dad calls his mum 'mam' (welsh)

Mum is the norm around here, nobody says it differentely.

Even though Stoke is technically considered the west midlands, but I think it was just some high up person who slipped when they were drawing up the county borders.

In the North, they say pants instead of trousers, too. Horrific!
What's that got to do with the price of fish?

Also, in my case (and Im a north-westener) it's Mum and Dad. I've never heard Mom used in the UK.
