My mom doesn't understand that you can't pause an online game...

How do I get this point across to her?

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.

Grow up, move out, and get your own place. Then you'll never have to hear her yap again.

Meh. As difficult as it may be for you, you're just going to have to accept that you'll have to go without dick for awhile. - Steamster to Little Zardar

Well if you can't put it on pause, just save it.

Ask her if she can just pause the other cars when she's driving. Or a live sporting event while she's in the stadium.

Then when she says, "No, of course not," you then say, "Same principle applies to online games."

Just don't forget to hold down reset when you power off!

WoW, like all video games, has to be played in moderation.

If you are going to be playing in a raid for four hours, explain to her that a certain night of the week you will be busy raiding, or doing whatever you'll be doing for an expanded period of time. Otherwise, you can always fly up high in the air and AFK for a bit to abide to your family's needs, or take care of your family's needs before you play.

In short, get off your dead ass and take out the damn trash.
