#CubanWaysToDie has been trending on Twitter this week, finally bringing awareness to millions of Twitter followers around the world that the struggle is real.

If you're the child of Cuban immigrants, then you know what we're talking about. The chancletazos. The "eyes" from your abuela when you're misbehaving at Sedano's. Being able to steal a kiss from your boyfriend because your mom finally decided she couldn’t hold the pee any longer and left the couch for exactly 1 minute and 17 seconds.

In case you missed it, we've rounded up our favorite Cuban ways to die. Join the support group and tell us your favorite #CubanWayToDie below.

Do Cuban parents really threaten to beat their children with flip flops and belts? Yes, yes they do.

You're a heartbeat away from el sinto, mijita.

QUE SE PIERDA because he's as good as dead.

Because Cuban girls don't have sex before marriage, and leaving the door open is the best way to ensure this.

Your mom has been calling you since 11:15 to find out if you were on your way home yet.

Consider yourself lucky if your mom let you go without a chaperone, bro.

Your mom flashed you the "eyes" and now you're IN FOR IT.

OYE, what happened to your shoes???
