I touched on this before and you can see that here in Part I. Below is an addendum to that list.
-These kind of commercials:“If you are interested in patio awnings call 1-800-555-5555. Again if you are interested – please call 1-800-555-5555 at 1-800-555-5555. 1-800-555-5555, again, 1-800-555-5555 for patio awnings. Don’t forget to call 1-800-555-5555. 1-800-555-5555.”
I need to see the research on these types of commercials and how effective they actually are. Or better yet, I’d like to see the statistical data on the demographic these commericals sell to.. because I’m picturing someone who still says shit like “Get ‘er done!” and goes to tractor pulls at county fairs.
-When you drop your cellphone on your face while laying on your back.
-How eating healthy = more dishes. That is my biggest problem with eating healthy. I know, first world problems. But it is so much easier to throw in a frozen pizza than to get out 50 dishes and utensils to make a healthy meal at home.
-Getting peanut butter out of the bottom of the jar. I manage to get peanut butter up to my elbows during this process.
-When pasta water boils over and makes a mess of the stove top. And yes, I use the wooden spoon trick but apparently our water is extra bubbly because nothing stops it.
-How every single person I went to high school with is now selling Rodan & Fields, LuLaRoe, Isagenix, Advocare, Scentsy, Lipsense, Young Living essential oils, Paparazzi jewelry and whatever else. Are these people actually making money? If so, sign me up but I am totally skeptical that your $5 bracelet is making you any profit. I appreciate their hustle but my Facebook feed reminds me of those annoying mall kiosk people who chase you down to “ask you a question” and give you lotion samples.
-When you follow a car to the same destination. This just happened to me going to the grocery store and the woman called me out on it “Ohhh I’ve been in your way since you left your house!” Yup, actually Carol you have been in my way. All I needed was 1 lime for guacamole which should have been a 10 minute errand but since you drive slower than molasses it took 10 minutes to just get to the store. And then low and behold who pulls into the parking spot I wanted? And then whose cart is blocking the produce section directly in front of the limes…
See? Motherhood hasn’t changed me, yet.
What are things that make you stabby?
Sincerely and Sarcastically,
