Man Cold vs. Mom Cold Video

Mom's Viral Video Hilariously Explains the Difference Between a Man Cold and a Mom Cold

Have you ever thought to yourself, "Wow, I handle a cold so much better than my boyfriend/husband/male friend?" You're not alone, and one mom made a hilarious video explaining the difference between a "man cold" and a "mom cold" based on her experience. Meredith, the mom behind the blog That's Inappropriate, posted the video back in 2016, and it quickly went viral — it's at 1 million views and counting — thanks to its spot-on humor.

In the video, Meredith and her husband both have a cold, but the two handle the situation vastly differently. Her husband is lying around in bed while she's taking care of laundry and dishes, looking after the kids, and checking on her husband every few minutes to bring him things he wants (including chicken noodle soup that needs an ice cube). Meredith plays up the exaggeration often associated with a "man cold." "I know that you feel like you're going to die, but you're not going to die," she says while holding a tissue to help with her own runny nose. "I can't lay down and pat your back. I have things I have to do."

We're not saying this is how every guy acts when he has a cold, but we bet you'll relate at least a little bit after you watch it! Prepare to laugh and nod your head as you watch the all-too-familiar scenario above.
