Here’s what YOU had to say! Thanks for telling me what bothers you, girls! Nice not to be the bad guy for once.
Stop taking pictures of your food and posting it to facebook. Nobody cares what you’re eating, where you’re eating it and if you like it or not. Your lame attempt to look cool and make me feel like your life is somehow better than mine backfires every time. You bore me and all of your other “friends”.
Could this be any more true?
This is going to sound shallow. My pet peeve is folks who live in a neighborhood with a Homeowner’s Association and then don’t follow the rules. They pay dues, they live next to people who care for the lawns, trees, paint on their houses, etc. and then don’t mow, let their roof look like an agricultural experiment with moss all over it, have peeling/chipping paint, weeds, don’t trim their trees, leave kid crap all over their lawn, never put their garbage cans away, let their mailbox lean over and look like it’s going to fall in street, don’t wash their windows, etc. This makes me crazy. If you want your house to look like crap – then move. Get the hell out. Leave. If you can’t pick up and take care of your home, move to a trailer park. I don’t care where you go, but I don’t want to look at your mess. My house looks great. That’s what you have to look at every day. Aren’t you LUCKY?!?! I have to look at your piece of crap house that is dirty, peeling, no color, beige, white, tan, brown and I hate it! It’s your biggest investment. Take care of it! Okay, rant over.
thanks to the person that sent this one! think i might print it out and tape it to my neighbors dilapidated front door. f’ing lazy jerks!
No. I don’t think your baby’s cute. In fact, not only do I not want to look at it, I don’t want to talk about it. My unsolicited advice is call a relative.
the life list reminded me of something i’ve been thinking for a long time: my advice is-don’t stay together for the sake of the children. you have to give yourself the best world in order to provide them with the best world.
I’d love to know what people think about this UA!
my unsolicited advice is- your cats dead. stop with the “lost kitty” posters and knocking on everyone’s door to see if they’ve seen it. has anyone ever “found” a lost cat? no. it’s been eaten by a coyote or hit by a car. it’s dead. move on.
my UA is- If you don’t put yourself at the top of the list- no one else will.
The people you hate, hate you just as much.
Such a true, true, true slap in the face.
Just because “she’s” your mom doesn’t mean you have to like her.
Aren’t we all really busy? Who really has time to grab a coffee or meet up for a barbecue in 2012. I have a tribe of kids, a traveling husband, constant home improvement projects underway, not to mention my efforts to stay connected to my professional network for that one day it might be about “me” again, yet when I invite friends over for a casual barbecue or a Sunday brunch – I am just striking out. I use to think it was me or my personality or maybe my kids drove their kids nuts. I no longer think this way. Dwindling “yes(es)” and last minute cancellations DRIVE ME CRAZY. Is it that I am more organized, have my shit together or just care a little bit more about my family and friends than they do about me? I get wanting some down time like the rest of you out there and a clear MS Outlook calendar is like a breath of fresh air that happens as often as a historical eclipse. I get taking time out from the rat race to do yoga, meditate and put your priorities first. BUT I still want to nurture my relationships and have some fun memories to look back on, so why is it so difficult for people to commit & stay committed to a few hours of fun.
After decades of trying to answer this question, I am constantly told by close friends, bartenders, and therapists that I have set my expectations too high for the human race. I might be better off getting a dog. (NOT THIS LADY!) I should frankly have no expectation and by default be constantly rewarded and surprised when anyone does or commits to anything. BUT the question still plagues me. And more importantly, why do I still care?
My unsolicited advice is to prioritize who and what is important in your life and make sure they know it as much as you humanly can. Make seeing and spending time with those peeps a priority and quite possibly they will do the same in return. For the rest of them, well – they’re probably watching the Bachelor while texting their “no(s)!”
I hear ya, girl. sigh…I hear ya.
And here’s my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!!!!!!!!!!
My unsolicited advice is to you Chrissy: Hurry up and finish The Unexpected List! I need to know who’s baby that is on the cover of the book.
The only thing i can tell you is to EXPECT the UNEXPECTED!
