    To the woman who saw me walking around campus with my baby in a snugli and one year old in a stroller-(they were 13 mos apart.)and told me, "It gets worse." (she looked of an age to have teenagers) 1. I was getting no sleep, we had no money and I never saw my husband because he was either in class or working. If I believed you I would have gone and jumped off a bridge. 2. I ended up having four daughters. They are now 21,20,18 and 16. And their teenage years have been just great. They have been a JOY to have around. So there!

    To parents-children want and need boundaries. They need friends their own age, not for their parents to be their friends. Discipline (of a reasonable nature) is not evil and will not make your children hate you-no matter what they say. Try to remember what you wanted and *needed* when you were young-it's a good reference for what to do with your children.

    Leave me out of the middle of a fight. I dont wanna hear it... I want to be left out of the whole thing.

    Don't brag that your chest is bigger than mine... mine is already big enough, why would I WANT a DD??

    I hate when anyone, atheist or christian, tries to ram their beliefs down my throat. It only makes people hate you and the God you represent. And no, I don't want to study the Book of Mormon. I'm secure in my religion, so leave it at that and go away.

    I hate when people elevate politicians to the levels of gods. They're HUMAN like the rest of us. Whether you're in favor of Bush or Kerry, neither is perfect... and they both have an agenda of some sort. Get over it.

    Yes, I graduated second in my class... so stop hovering over me, waiting for me to mess up. It's not funny.

    I know I'm a little chubby. So don't whine that you're fat when you weigh much less than I. If you're fat, then what am I?

    I hate when people whine about cell phones in public. Who cares?? How is it any different that having a conversation with the person sitting next to you?

    Kids need to dress their age. You aren't Britney. Enjoy being a kid.

    Don't whine about my SUV. I feel safer in it. I don't take up 2 parking spaces when I park and I drive courteously. It's my RIGHT to own one and I will. I'M paying for it, NOT you.... so hush up.

    Don't yell at me for using products that are tested on animals. Exactly what do you propose they should be tested on? If you are so worried about it, why don't you volunteer?

    Get off my backs, enviro-nuts. My car isn't killing the wildlife and CFCs do NOT destroy the ozone layer.

    Don't take advantage of me because I'm nice. I won't write a paper for your college ETHICS class because YOU think that I think you're hot. Give me a break.

    Stop hating people with wealth. They worked hard to earn it and who do you think provides jobs? Everyone wasn't meant to have equal wealth in America, only equal rights.

    Women, you are NOT the same as men. You are physically the weaker sex. And there is nothing wrong with being a stay-at-home mom.

    I respect your opinions, SIR, but if I chose to date an older man, it is because I desire a little more maturity. I don't like you, as the "mature" one, rubbing my age or lack of experience in my face. How do you expect me to earn it? And if it's SUCH a big deal, then why are you dating me??

    I am a virgin because I CHOOSE to be.

    I like listening to talk radio in MY car. So don't try and change my station. I WANT it there, thank you VERY much.

    Anyone who hurts a child deserves to have the book thrown at them. You are truly disgusting.

    I am in support of the death penalty. If you did something that horrific, you deserve to die.

    I am against abortion. It's not your right to kill an innocent baby. If you don't want it, don't have sex. It's that easy.

    Don't tell me my views of the world are "idealistic" or "old-fashioned."

    I like my long hair... don't tell me that I should cut it because I have a "fat face."

    If I am grumpy, DON'T tell me to smile. If I refuse to talk about it, leave me alone!

    Don't dress like a slut at church then complain to me that the older people are calling you "Jezebel." Yes, they shouldn't call you that, but you brought it on. Leave the mini skirts and halter tops at home.

    Whew, that was longer than I thought it would be... LoL

    To my sister::: You're a psycho **** and I will never forgive you for the things you have said and done.
    Mom's dead and now suddenly you expect me to go back to the way things were years ago and act like nothing happened, when we all know it did.
    The things you said hurt me. You took advantage of mom, when she was well and in her right mind you said mean and hateful things to her. When she got Alzheimers and you could control her, she was your life. How odd.
    Kiss my ass. I can't stand you. Take the money that you think might make you happy and stick it.
    I know that money doesn't make a person happy.
    I hope that every f ing day of your life you remember that you lied to family, friends, and strangers about me. You lied to mom.
    Delete me please. What I considered a nice honest place to find good info has now become one big advertisement.
    Have a great day!

    I'm sorry you thought the MANDATORY evacuation drill was a joke and waste of time yesterday. You work in a high rise in midtown Manhattan. Why don't you take this seriously. Perhaps next time if management takes your suggestion of "at least giving us something for doing it", you'll take it more seriously. Knowing that you can actually haul yourself down the 43 flights of stairs should have been enough reward, but what do I know. Silly me. How about if someone dangles a sandwich in front of you next time? Yes, we notice that you're always first in line to eat when there's an event.

    God forbid there actually is an emergency, none of the people who actually took it seriously and participated - even if they didn't want to - should be put in jeopardy because of your cavalier attitude and laziness.

    To all you "people" who feel the need to knock on my door or approach me while I'm shopping, walking , or sitting on the train, do I have "Save my soul" tattood on my forehead? You have no right to impose yourselves on anyone and start pushing your beliefs. Trust me, you'd have better luck if you just sat back and be available to people who have questions instead of coming up to randon strangers and harassing them. The belief that you need to convert the heathens is one that I don't even pretend to respect. It's incredibly arrogant to think that you can "save" anyone, if that's really your intention. Or is it that your running low on members and you need more tithes?

    OK Here's some of mine...

    -Public displays of affection. Come on people we dont want to see you tongue swapping while in line at the grocery store, in the car in front of me at the light, etc. I'm all for being in love but crap there is a PLACE for this crap.
    -Hypocondriacs (spelling?). People who are ALWAYS freaking sick or have some ailment. My gosh, its a wonder you are still alive.
    -Butt kissers at work. PULEASE!!!
    -People who look you up and down to see what you are wearing. HATE THAT-Get over yourself!
    -People who interrupt me when I am talking.

    Thats a few..... :x

    Well, I'm on the verge of madness right now, so I have a lot...

    To the girls - I made our flight home from South Beach early in the morning because I have to work the next day - you guys are all teachers - DEAL WITH IT! I'll even put your comfy clothes and gym shoes out for you to ease the pain.

    To one of my bridesmaids - I don't care if you don't like the bridesmaid dress. I lived with you for 4 years and have had much experience in your closet - style is NOT your forte. Your opinion at this point is moot.

    To my parents - I'll be the good daughter and will be ready to talk when you come to your senses. Until then, don't even try. And it won't ever again be about my sister - those conversations are over.

    To my future mother-in-law - I'm sorry you've been dealt a rough deck of cards in life and I understand your pain, but your son is getting married and it's a happy time - just try to be the happy mother of the groom - you'll have so much more fun that way.

    To one of my best friends - I'm sorry that you had to move out of the city into the sticks and I really miss you. But, I can't keep bandaiding your financial issues - you need to figure it out on your own. Working sucks for nearly everyone...that's life.

    Everyone - I don't give a crap what anyone thinks for the next 2 months. Talk to me after Aug. 28.

    Kind of a different direction here, but this thread is for whatever we want to say so...

    I love munchkin and bounce. You guys seem like you would be great friends to have. munchkin always says what I want to say, but she says it much gentler and more articulately.

    I love this site too. I love reading about everyone's life, I even enjoy the political and religous discussions (but I wish I could learn to keep myself out of political ones). This site has changed my hair completely and I always find out the news first here.

    Thank you Gretchen and Michelle for starting this board.

    Hey Mar - I was actually following your lead. You had said nice things in your earlier post. Might as well tell you that I really liked your rsponse on the life goals thread. I think too many parents first worry is whether or not their kids are happy and not whether or not they are decent human beings (of course I stole that from Dr. Laura but I totally agree). I also think decent human beings on the whole are happier than those who aren't.

    If you steal a car and instigate a high-speed chase, forcing police to chase your reckless behind through city streets or on the highway, putting innocent people's lives in danger, then YES, you deserve the beatdown that the adrenaline- and anger-ridden police end up giving you. If you forced me to chase your sorry ass, I would beat you down, too.

    My eating and coffee drinking habits are none of your damn business.

    We work on the same floor but just because you ask, I don't have to tell you how many cups of coffee I have per day, whether or not I have trouble sleeping, if I have a "caffeine addiction". I don't care that you think I "drink the most coffee of anyone you've ever seen" or that you think it's "weird" that I use Equal, yet also use Half & Half. Don't you have anything better to do than be the coffee police? Dude, I don't even know your name, so why are you watching what I do?

    And, if I want to have microwave popcorn at 11:30 in the morning, I'll have it. I don't care that you think it's "first thing in the morning". I don't remember asking for your permission or approval. I get up at 5:30 a.m, so it's far from "first thing" for me. If you don't like it, don't look m'kay?

    Uh oh, I feel a "food issues" rampage coming on...

    I don't make comments on how much *you* eat, don't make comments on how little *I* eat. Got it, Clueless?

    Why is criticizing or otherwise making inappropriate comments on someone's eating habits any different than making comments on thier choice of birth control, religion, or choice of spouse? Why is it OK? Is it because it's cloaked in a disguise of motherly concern? Puhleease. It's a basic, personal choice that everyone one of us has as an individual. How much and what I choose to put into my body is MY business, not YOURS.

    So I let you know what I'm gonna be doing, expecting to be dissected. 'Cause you do that. You take my ideas and pick them to pieces and "suggest" things that I should do instead. You know what? If I've told you what I'm doing, then it means I've THOUGHT about it first. It means I MEAN what I say. I'm so sick of people thinking they can cut up and criticise my words because they think I don't mean them and won't care.
    I DO IN FACT MEAN WHAT I SAY. LISTEN TO ME.

    And while I appreciate that you do in fact support my decision, and I'm surprised that you do, could you PLEASE not take credit for it in front of me when your friends are over? It was MY idea. You never "always said I should do this." Please don't act like you were guiding me towards this decision, I know you want bragging rights, but this decision wasn't made for you, or by you, in any way shape or form. There WAS someone who helped me to make this decision. But it wasn't you.

    To my supervisor Samantha:

    You annoy me so much, in fact you annoy everyone. No one likes you, I think you have just realised this and it's about time. You are a supervisor, not a manager quit thinking you are one. You will never be a manager in this company, you don't have the right nationality. Stop talking down to us. WE ARE NOT STUPID! You think you know everything when in actual fact you know very little, why you are a supervisor is beyond my comprehension. We did not sign something to say we would work 9 straight hours in a shift, in the UK this is illegal, we signed a contract saying we would work more than 48 hours a week - BIG DIFFERENCE! Quit strutting around the bar, you are not all that. If you don't like your boyfriend, do something about it don't lead him on it's not fair. Get a bloody transfer to another site, no one will miss you.


    Damn, I really needed to do that!

    I feel better that I let some things out...but it is time for me to move past those things. I cannot allow myself to be stuck on those subjects, because I don't want to build on anger or negativity.

    I pray for me and I pray for you---I wish no ill will on you, because you are a person just like me. I do believe that what goes around comes around, for us all. You had your motives...and I am sure one day the next person will have motives against you.

    I am who I am...all I can do is be me, so if you don't like it---I can't help that. I know I am not a bad person, and I know I also don't have motives to do people wrong---I am very blessed if you ask me.

    Get some peace from within, and you may enjoy life a whole lot more.

    :lol: few more minor ones...

    yes,I love my son to bits and no...he doesn't get on my nerves.

    No--I don't want another one right now. That's fine you wanted kids back to back, that's your choice. It is a serious job, parenting, and I am loving it...right now one is enough. If I have another one are you going to pay for it,room and board it,baby sit it and do all the parental things for it? No... :roll: then why are you suggesting folks have more kids? Oh===cuz they are cute.

    Yes, I REALLY had a baby. Yes, I really have a 2 1/2 yr old. I am sorry I don't fit your jacked up impression of a mommy/someone with a toddler. No, we don't all blow up,wear sweats or dirty tees. I think your views are limited. I DO look like a mom--I AM a mom.

    No. I am not mixed. No. I do not have a perm/relaxer. Yes, this is what my hair does. WTF does it matter to you? Why should someone lie to YOU about their hair? If you like it next time cut to the chase "you have nice hair" is better than "are you mixed..do you have a perm...is that all your hair..." :roll:

    To the stranger Black dude who smacked his lips, looked me up and down then groped my pony puff and said "mmmm---you got you some indian in you, huh?" :? I said "what makes you ask" ( :roll: cause gee...it wasn't waaay obvious buddy). he goes "you got dat goooooood hair and sht. real curly and wavy." I told him that yes my hair is good, because it is healthy and cared for. The curl pattern doesn't make it good or bad.

    Lady at work who put here hands in my hair when it was flat ironed and wore down--look heffa, please don't run up on my, stick your hands in my hair down to my SCALP them move them around like I don't know wtf you are doing. NO, it isn't a friggin weave. Some of us have hair, and although I am not the only one in the compound with healthy hair and without a weave. Okay, yes we realize most of you do wear weaves but so what! How come when you see us with our hair down (out of the usual buns or ponytails.) it has to be checked for realness? If you stopped bleaching your hair while it is in microbraids, stopped perming it with braids IN and just learned to deal with your hair, maybe yours would have some health and length and thickness too.

    Metra--it was really funny that when they sang happy birthday to me, you were on the other side of the charts talking ish, then rolled your eyes and said "so what, who cares!" :roll: Ummm, maybe the group that bought the cake and threw the pot luck??

    Girl, stop acting like you aren't bilingual---lots of us know you really are.

    Payroll, I didn't ask you to stop my direct deposit, and I appreciate the bounced check fees I had to pay last month because YOU messed up and my pre-arranged debits got fkd up. Thanks a bunch!! Can we just get it right this pay period?? I don't have money to throw away or credit to ruin.

    Don't ask me if I can see you dating so-and-so. And don't ask me if I think you'd make a better couple with Guy A than Guy B. I'm not the one freaking out about, nor will I be the gal dating him, so my opinion DOESN'T MATTER!

    Don't ask me if I think you're pretty. You know you are, so quit asking. I'll be the best friend, but get some self-esteem and chill out so that I can joke with you and tell you the opposite when you ask me that again. You're 18 years old and high school is now officially over. It doesn't matter. LIVE!

    I don't care how multi-talented you are; no matter how coordinated you're feeling, it's NEVER safe to smoke a cigarette and talk on your cell-phone while you're driving down the road. Did you grow an extra arm or something? No, I don't think so. Drop one of them. Preferably the cigarette, and don't you DARE throw it out the window. If you have to smoke, make your car a filty mess, not the street.

    Fine, I know that I have a trivial job working for the City. It's a summer job, and I need money. Painting gas meters may be boring, and it pay seem completely ridiculous, but I'm doing my job and it has to be done. Why don't YOU get a job so you can freaking earn the right to be called an adult. Don't you want the satisfaction of spending your own money and preparing yourself for college? No? Then shut up.

    I don't care if you don't like soccer. It's my passion. Don't tell me soccer is for wusses. I don't see you running 7 collective miles over a span of 90 minutes. Don't even tell me that it's a stupid sport, because I do believe that ribbon twirling is now considered an Olympic event, so don't EVEN accuse me of playing a stupid sport. Go back to your recliner, eat some more chips and sit on your butt all day while I go out and work my rear off trying to chase a dream that I have. I don't care if you're sitting around doing nothing, but don't say that I'm dumb for choosing to train every evening.

    WHEW! Thank you.
    Peace, all.

    I do not stab people in the back, and generally mean well. If you think that I mean ill, look at yourself instead.

    At least until you start stabbing my friends in the back. At that point, I will no longer work with you, and will do my best to make sure your bosses see clearly how little work you do. And, yes, they have known me longer than you, they trust me more than you, and they asked me what was wrong because they could clearly see you were messing up somehow while you were kissing their behinds.

    If you're supposedly the boss, and you see this backstabbing and horrible work going on from one person, but do nothing about it, don't be surprised when I leave, along with every other competent employee you have. I am not going to stick in a position with someone who will try to ruin my career simply because you have no leadership skills.

    Don't ring my doorbell before noon on a Saturday. And if you do, don't do so incessantly. And if you ring it incessantly, don't then run away so you're gone when I get to the door. Or leave an ad for your company. I guarantee you won't be getting business from me after that!

    Ok, time for a positive.

    To my friend who smokes:

    Thank you for admitting you were young and stupid when you started, rather than trying to convince others they should, too.

    Thank you for asking before lighting up near me, and making sure the wind is blowing your smoke away from me. Thankfully, your brand doesn't give me asthma attacks.

    Thank you for never leaving your butts lying around, but making sure you collect them.

    And thank you for the laughs when you talk about how your obsessive compulsive cleanness and smoking are at odds!

    (See, even smokers can be cool sometimes-this from a nonsmoker. :wink: )
