Things you don't get

135

Re: Things you don't get

  • I eat mashed potato sandwiches and grits/eggs/cheese on wheat bread.

    But, cookies and milk or cornbread/cake and milk wig me out.

    I only use my Ebrake on hills in the automatics. In the manuals I never use it, just park it in gear.

    I only say good things about DH online. I try not to just gripe about him. I have a couple of older, trusted, married girl friends who will tell me if I'm being difficult or if he's wrong, otherwise I try not to air our dirty laundry. He's a good guy most of the time.

  • I like putting mashed potatoes on rolls! But I am the girl  who has mashed potatoes with mashed up crackers mixed in for lunch like once a week. Mashed potato tacos are a specialty in my house! Stop judging me you whores.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Things you don't get : That's what I do.  I have yet to find a technology that can properly convey my point without having my tone, volume, and glowing eyes of doom there to warn DH when he has officially gone too far, ya know?

    I KNOW! 

    Also, apparently there are technology companies limiting email use to force people to talk face to face or on the phone.  It's more productive than electronic communications.  Says a lot.

    I dont get coloured jeans. They just look... really unflattering to me. Especially coloured skinny jeans.

    Guilty.

    But they make my ass look so good, so no jury will convict me.

  • I like the trendy things but I get really pissed that none of them would look good on me. I went shopping the other week and almost left crying because all of the shirts were like 20 sizes too big and they made me look like a whale. But a model sized girl can wear an oversized shirt and look even tinier. How the hell does that work!

    I hate when people try to talk to me in my office when I'm on the phone.  My boss is guilty of this all the time. 

    Or when people come to the door when I'm on the phone, and keep hammering on the doorbell.  There's a window between my office and the porch.  You can look in and SEE that I'm on the phone.  Don't ring the fucking bell.  I will get up and answer it as soon as I can, ringing the bell only makes me crazy.

    Posted by wadingmoose[/QUOTE]

    I listed texting because if they will only communicate via technology and won't talk (like they've stated during their wall of comments) texting is better than FB comments, IMO.

    <div>I think they look cute on little girls, and some of those super thin teenagers that don't have a lot of hip. I don't think anyone outside of high school should wear them though. </div>

    We have a wooden door at work and sometimes people just knock on it and dont come in for a minute or so. Its an office, you just walk in. I dont get what they knock for, cause im certainly not getting up to answer the damn door.

    Ha I saw something like this too on one friends status. She just put a random status update and some aunt said "You should go see your mom, she doesn't go to work until 1" then like two days later it was "I see you didn't take my advice to go see your mom" What the heck aunt? Leave her the fuuuck alone, she doesn't want to visit her mom!
  • I don't understand ballsacks on pick up trucks...or on vehicles in general.  It looks stupid and makes me want to punch something.

    I want to get a pick up truck just so I can put balls on mine. I think it would be awesome if my truck had nuts. Bigass brass ones.

    I know right? I've bee very tempted, on several occasions, to just block the lady, but she posts some really cute stuff that I love to ogle, and hope to be able to afford soon. :p

    Posted by rachers1017[/QUOTE]

    I love mine too.  Too bad the trend will be completely over by the end of the summer and I'll have to stop wearing them eventually.  sigh.

  • I have an aunt like that, she's always in my business, I have finally just hidden her from my status updates, it's ridiculous.

  • Another FB I don't get.  It is possible to create a business page on FB, it drives me crazy when people devote their entire page to their Mary Kay or Pampered Chef products.  Mostly this is because I usually only look at FB on my phone and it fills up the entire screen and takes far too long to scroll by.

    Because fashion hates you if you aren't as thin as a string bean.

    I ADORE my body most days.  The days I don't adore it - when I'm shopping.  I think I have fantastically awesome tits, a bangin' ass and a nicely shaped waist.  I put on a top and I look like a fuckin tank?  Thanks, designers.  That's funny.  Hil-ar-ious.

    Another "i dont get", old navy sizing. I wear an XL pretty much everywhere, but somehow fit into mediums and larges at old navy. That just seems like a HUGE disconnect to me and I dont really get it.

  • My mom has this super annoying friend that she's stopped texting. She then sent me a FB message saying "Tell your mom to text me!!!!!!!!!!!!" How awkward is that? Leave me alone, I don't even like you. I only fb friended you to avoid hurting your feelings.

    Third Anniversary 100 Comments 25 Love Its Name Dropper

    My beau hates facebook or any kind of technology really. I still roll my eyes when I think about his fifteen minute rant on directed advertising on google (I never searched it on this computer HOW does it know?? is the government accessing my computer???? Continued paranoid nonsense!!). He uses me as his facebook as he gets on maybe once every six months or so and I'm FB friends with a bunch of his cousins and aunts. He asked me the other day when his godson's bday was. WTH isn't that something you should know since he's your godson? ugh. And when he does get on, he tends to post asshole comments. 

    edit - another FB 'i don't get' -- people who post aggressively christian comments. I don't mind scripture but there was one that this guys was talking about why shouldn't you lecture other people about the evils of their ways since you're in the right? and so on and so forth. keep it to yourself man.

    Oh, another thing that I don't get. Men that hit on married women, or specifically men that hit on their friend's wives. I've been with DH for 5 years, and have known dude in question the entire time, and now that DH an I have gotte married, he seems to think its appropriate to tell me what he thinks of my boobs. Um, no. Not appropriate. I see this happening a lot, with several of my married friends, and I don't get it, AT all.

    [QUOTE]Lizzie - those are stupid. And it reminds me. I don't get why people feel the need to get a GIANT decal of like "FORD" on the back of their windshield. I'm pretty sure I can figure out the make and model of your car without you plastering it in giant letters on your car. What's the point?
    Posted by rachers1017[/QUOTE]

    <div>I also don't get the in memoriam window decals, especially the ones that take over most of the rear window.  Or the virgin of guadalupe ones.  Really, anything that impedes your sight like that should be against the law.</div>
