My Mom, The Cougar - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is a photo of my mom and her new boyfriend. They like to travel and take pictures of themselves. She is very proud to be with him and makes sure to post pictures like this one all over the internet for me and my sister’s friends to see. So not embarrassing.”

    Nope I too know the guy in the picture. He’s not stoned. Just really really creepy. Sorry for ya Hayley.

  2. Scripted says:

    Wow, these people look SO familiar.. especially the guy o.O

  3. cam says:

    This guy looks like Derek Jeter.

  4. crystal says:

    Haley, you are my new hero!! This is perfect revenge!

  5. Jessica says:

    I know him. He loves the Rogers Mounties…I graduated from there. I had many awkward encounters with him.

  6. tracy says:

    HELLO! Folks, those are NOT people in the background! Look closely (and read other people’s comments before you post…it’s been answered already like 3 times!) Those look like shampoo or bubble bath bottles. Look again…

    • Brenda says:

      You do realize that comments aren’t posted immediately, leading to repeated questions, right? Now, back to the photo – ooh, uh, ick. Never mind.

  7. Eric Rudolf says:

    Who the hell are those people in the mirror reflection? I demand to know where this public bathhouse is.

  8. lizzie says:

    Oh dear.
    Ahem.
    Sigh.

  9. binkymae says:

    Mr. Bubble never intended this use of his product. Kids frolicking, sexy woman covered in bubbles in the bath….but not this!

  10. Kim says:

    Oh, she has dyed her hair recently. Believe me I know because I am 55. But this has to be totally AWKward for the girls. My children think I am bad because I do some internet dating but with men my age. I am forwarding this to them, so they will leave me alone.

    Hayley, keep all these pictures and use them to torture your mother when she gets old. Since she is torturing you with them now.

  11. Janie says:

    I think his “bunny ears” are a reflection of his bent legs and knees in the mirror behind him, which somehow makes the mental image even more awkward–if that’s possible.

  12. zipper says:

    Besides the fact that he is totally stoned, he also also makes lots of bubbles in the tub…

  13. KellyAnne says:

    You commnet under the photo is hilarious. Sounds like you have a good sense of humor. He does look as old as her. I would die if my mom did this but I think it takes a great person to be able to laugh it off. Good for you !!!

  14. Shantih says:

    I’m fairly certain this couple is at the Poconos, staying at Caesar’s Palace. What everyone is looking at, is a picture of them in the 7 foot champagne hot tub. It is mirrored all the way around. You can actually PAY somebody to come take a “professional” picture of you in the hot tub, but they obviously decided that wasn’t worth the money – just like my husband and I who have a very similar picture!

    • Jen says:

      I was going to say Cove Haven in the Poconos in one of the heart shaped jacuzzis, but either way its still just wrong.

  15. Solana says:

    The expressions on their faces look like that farm couple from the painting ‘American Gothic’.

    What happened to the pitchfork?

  16. Steph says:

    Oh, Hayley! I’m so sorry for you and your sister! But thanks so much for having the guts to post this and let us laugh.

  17. TMHergs says:

    Wow. He looks stoned!

  18. Jumble says:

    Definitely gross and humiliating but they do look the same age….

  19. sue says:

    The explanation and the comments are the best ever…

  20. HayleyLane says:

    You poor poor thing. Who does that?

  21. sprinkles says:

    I can see the pride in her eyes, and blaze of envy in the eyes of those watching. Oh, well, at least you can thank her for getting you a few laughs on here! :)

  22. Erin says:

    He DOES look Ripped…..

  23. TGIF says:

    Hayley— this guy looks familiar. What city????

  24. Sofie says:

    I wonder who took the picture….

  25. algonquin says:

    Oh dear, it looks like Marney’s “cub” failed to get a hotel room with a regulation-sized bathtub and used the store-brand bubblebath. Somebody’s getting a memo……

  26. Hayley says:

    Thank you everyone who commented! I was laughing really hard and loud at work!

    • TC says:

      Oh gosh, I would be mortified too! That being said, if I ever find myself
      single, it might be fun to visit Cougar Town!

  27. ephercat says:

    I was kind of thinking that the two little light patches above his head look like devil horns, just sayin’

  28. NoCapes says:

    Calgon, take me away…from this photo.

  29. Chris says:

    Jeez. It is just a photo of a couple of people in a bubble bath. There are no people in the background. Why is everyone scrutinizing this perfectly normal couple? Lets relax a little bit before ripping people to shreds for absolutely nothing.

    • Melistopher says:

      Are you the guy in the picture?

      • Ginger says:

        @ Melistopher bwaa ha haa haaaaa….ahem. And to Chris uh…you do realize that the woman’s daughter posted this photo because she finds it incredibly awkward? You got that, right? No one’s ripping anyone to shreds, we’re commenting in the spirit in which the photo was posted.

        • Haylwy says:

          Yes my mom has done something. She doesnt care about me or her grandchild. But she puts this loser before everyone including her family!

          • KellyAnne says:

            Aww, I am sorry to hear you say that about her. Be strong & one day be a better parent to your own childrne if you have them. Hang in there kid.

      • scrapbookgirl says:

        Great reply, Melistopher! LOL

  30. Erin says:

    There are plenty of more pics where this came from. I’m Hayley’s best friend and roommate and we almost peed our pants going through these pictures. Just FYI, her mom is in her 50′s and the boyfriend is in his 20′s. He always looks this stoned I promise!

  31. NannaLee says:

    Cougar???? They look the same age?!!! creepy photo to share….

  32. Laura says:

    He looks older than her. I’m very scared for you and your sister. Therapy is probably in order although laughing AT her is probably the best medicine. Thanks for giving me a dose today!

  33. treva says:

    Mom doesnt seem to look proud, like the caption said and the bf looks a smidgen stoned…yucky haha

  34. Alan says:

    So mom’s the cougar,but why has the boyfriend got little pussy cat ears sticking out of the top of his head?

  35. DeeDeeDeeDee says:

    Oh gee thanks Hayley for sharing this gem with us, I’m soooooooo glad you did.

    NOT!

  36. Yesteday's News says:

    Good looking couple, for sure.

    Perhaps they just forgot to close the windows at the car wash.

  37. Suzanne says:

    I think there are motorcycles and people in overalls in the background… I’m so confused.

  38. Petros says:

    I’m almost afraid to say, “Next slide, please.”

  39. Jeeps says:

    I’d be embarrassed too, I mean really? couldn’t they smile?

  40. stef says:

    lol they both look like they could use a good night’s sleep if you ask me! i hear a sublime song playing in the background… reeeefeeeerrrrrrr

  41. Lily says:

    Yikes. I wonder what other types of pics they like to take together.

  42. Marco Torres says:

    Wow, looks like she found the bow staff!

  43. amy says:

    and this is why you shouldn’t be friends with your mom on facebook.

  44. Abe says:

    Hot Tub Mom Machine.

  45. Virginia says:

    Wow, that would be very embarrassing.

    • Cynthia says:

      She looks the same age as him, but that is not the point of the picture. I’m not sure exactly what the point is, either. I am at a loss for words. I can’t kick someone already down, and all I can say is I’m so sorry, Hayley, I’m so, so, sorry.

  46. Barb says:

    It would be sorta nice if they SMILED… at least we would know they are having a good time! I mean, the look on their faces makes you think they are soaking their hemorrhoids or something :)

  47. magi says:

    omg.. were they in public?? look in the mirror behind them! it’s full of people and lights..

  48. rachel says:

    oh man… all I can say is oh man… or oh boy, rather.

  49. jillydoll says:

    maybe I am seeing things but if you look in the mirror behind the “mom” I can see the reflection of some one else. Were they bathing in front of an audience? Creepy LOL

  50. kay says:

    Cougar?? he looks as old as her…are they at the laundromat?
