A Trippin' Mama

It's funny how phraseology evolves through the years. 

When I was a kid and my mom would get upset and vocal about something she was not pleased about, I would say, 
"Mom had a fit!" 

When my kids were a little younger and I was displeased with them, they would say,

"Mom was freaking out!" 

Today, as I talk to college students and they discuss how their moms react, they say, 

"My mom was trippin'."

What other descriptive words and phrases have evolved through past generations?
