Things that just need to stop right now

Please, I beg of you, stop it.  If you are guilty of one of the crimes below, please know that I ask you to stop out of love.

  • Giraffe print bags.  OMG these are EVERYWHERE.  Listen up, if you are carrying the same bag as every other woman in the mall, then it’s time to get a new bag.  fuchsia-large-vicky-giraffe-print-faux-leather-satchelI was out at lunch having the soup/salad/breadsticks deal at Olive Garden with a girlfriend and we counted 7 of these bags within sight of our table.  THAT’S TOO MANY!
  • People who ask themselves questions and then answer them.  Ugh.  This gets on my nerves so badly.  Does it bother me?  Why, yes it does!
  • Facebook profile pictures that aren’t of you.  As we all know, FB is a virtual high school reunion.  When I get a friend request and I can’t quite place the name I’ll instantly look at the profile pic.  If the pic shows a child or a dog or a sports team’s logo and you are NO WHERE to be found in said picture, I click ignore.  I understand that people love and are proud of their dogs, children, teams, etc.  But we want to see your face!  So annoying when I want to see a long lost friend’s face and I have to dig through albums on their FB page because their pic is of a mountainside!  Look, everyone is a little self conscious.  This isn’t a beauty pageant. No one’s judging. Find the most flattering, RECENT, photo of yourself and stick it up there!
  • Speidi
  • Jon Gosselin
  • TV shows about people who have 49 children.  Hooray!  You gave birth a bunch of times!  Lots of people do it.  All over the world.  Not impressed.  Now, go adopt 23 kids (most with special needs) like this family and I’ll watch your show. They don’t have a show.  They should, because that my friends, is  IMPRESSIVE.
