This never fails to piss Haitians off…

Disrespecting one’s mother! 
Any sentence directed at a Haitian that ends with “langét manman’w” will start a fight.  Mother is never, ever, to be disrespected within earshot of her “child”.  It is really of no moment that you and Mother never really got along since birth, (I am being dramatic …), that she always preferred your baby brother Dick-Anson to you, and that you have not called her in ages. 

It is the principle of the thing period! (as far as Haitians are concerns)
