I was raised to say yes/no ma'am and yes/no sir, it was engrained in me and was highly disrespectful if you forgot to say it. Now that I'm an adult I find I have to break this habit because nobody likes to hear that from an adult.

WTF @ confused upbringing!

My friends mom had 4 book shelves full of romance novels. We would pull them out, look at the covers, and laugh for hours. It made her mom so mad, but we couldn't help ourselves.

**do note some of those are fake/joke titles on actual covers, and real. i thought i posted "housewives in handcuffs" but it did a double of scottie mcmullet. she blinded me with science fiction was another great one.
The titles had me in tears!!!
I was to the point of hysterical. I couldn't stop. It was nice :-/


I'm curious to see what happens today. Something unnatural is going on between the time I hit send, and the time my comments post. I will eventually read like the Swedish Chef.


I've said it before and I will say it again, DO NOT come to my day job. I drop the F bomb every 2 seconds.


Springy, I know what you mean. Sometimes you just have to chalk typically non offensive/offensive words up to word association and move on. If I say Florence and the Machine, my best friend flips the hell out. Why? Because his ex played her music until hate was born. I'll still say Florence, and the Machine. Lol

Thelio, you can get them on Amazon, but I found this in the miscellaneous section of a Japanese site that sells swords. It's only 70 cm long, which is why I wanted it. The only other one that length I found on Amazon and it's a really pretty white one. Otherwise they're all way too long for someone like me who is only 5'4".

This is so cool:

It also lets you know when you would not want to be a woman in China!

I'm hiding from someone and I'm actually very close to them right now and if I move they would notice. Its funny because oddly enough they just called my phone andnow that I ignored it if they see me LOLOLOL the dramz but if I move it will blow my position. Hmmm if they walk by which they will I will pretend in asleep I better put my phone away now so I can pretend I didn't get the call. Why am I so childish. Hahahaahahahah I feel like a spy or a pretty little liar star...ill pretend I'm hanna she's my fave.

Sort of like that science meme. Science is still true even if you don't believe in it.
I actually own a real dictionary. And according to that dictionary - 4. "girl - a man's or boy's sweetheart." 5. "a woman".
But regardless of what some dusty old dictionary says, my point is that I don't mind if someone calls me girl/babe/lady. It doesn't offend me. Last I knew I'm allowed to NOT be offended. Hard to tell nowadays when everyone is offended by everything.

My friend's friend just got engaged. She spoke with her sister. And vented to me...

Quote:
and she goes, "well apparently she was sobbing for an hour at the hospital" (she's a doctor) "because she hated the ring"
so i'm like, ok, what's wrong with it?? is it tear drop shaped or something??
and she's like, it's a square cut diamond, 0.8 carats, white gold band
i'm like, that sounds great!
but she hates it
and i was like, why?
which she didn't answer directly but basically was implying it's too small
that is so rude!!!
esp cuz that's pretty much exactly my ring except it's a round cut diamond
like the fiance apparently said "oh i figured you'd want something on the smaller side"
so she pitched a fit
COME ON PEOPLE
there are children starving!
so i said to her, "well that's about how big my ring is and i don't think it's too small"
and she goes, "well, we have big hands"
WTF
WT Eff indeed!!!

And then there are things that don't bother you (general you) because they aren't about you in the first place and don't affect you. For example, cultural appropriation doesn't bother you because it's not your culture being appropriated. Or my friend having the audacity to compare calling an annoying customer a ***** to calling a male one a dick when I call him out on it and trying to justify how he's referring to just one specific woman and not all women.
Seriously? My not being offended for being called a girl has all that historical significance? Who knew I was such a horrid person?

I give everyone all the right in the world to be offended by words and what they used to mean and how they are used.
I expect the same right to not be offended for myself. I'm not asking for a disagreement when I say that something doesn't bother me. I'm simply saying that something doesn't bother me! It's not all that deep.
