Women who change their names when they get married - haven't they heard of equality? It's not the dark ages any more...

So carrying your father's name is somehow more empowering than carrying your husband's? Equality is about CHOICE, my friend. And if a woman chooses to take her husband's name, than a true feminist will defend her right to make that choice, not belittle her for it.

When people take a shit in a public restroom...and dont wait until its empty or wait until you get home..I dont want to sell your shit!
I know thats what a toilet is for...but C'mon


Um...I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Trust me, I would LOVE to be able to wait until the bathroom is empty or until I'm home. But sometimes, when I have to go, I have to go RIGHTFREAKINGNOWOHMYGODWHEREISTHEBATHROOM!

I DO always flush, however. There's no excuse for THAT.

Nothing wrong with taking your husband's last name OR keeping your maiden name OR hyphenating it. If you want to get into the whole feminist thing then wouldn't getting married in the first place be a "dark ages" thing?

Ah Facebook, what did we do before you? I hate it when people take 100s of photos of the same thing with only slight variances, of say their kid, and then they upload ALL of them on to FB. How fucking boring. Just select the 1 or 2 nice ones. Or the people who take the most boring holiday photos-"this was our hotel", "this was the street just outside our hotel", "this is the other side of the street just outside our hotel". BORING.

Oh my oh my where do I start. Ok first and foremost I absolutely hate when people slurp out of a cup. Do we need to go back to sippy cups. If the liquid is hot, simply wait for it to cool down. I also dislike it when you're having an argument with someone and they find everyway to debate with sarcasm and arrogance towards you only to find out that they were wrong from the get go. People who act "kindly and helpful" out in public for eyes to see but act the total opposite in private. I'm with Phoenix on this one, people who look from me to my husband and then to our baby and then back and forth....YES HE'S OUR CHILD...lol When you drop something on the floor pick it up, don't wait for me to do it. Oh boy the list goes on and on and on...I'll be back. This post is long enough.

I hate when my son sleeps all night and I think he's dead so I check on him and the sound of the door opening wakes him.

I see this so frequently that at this point I don't CARE if the trashcan stinks of shit. I'd rather the shit be IN the damn bin than UNDER MY GODDAMN TIRES! Can I tell you how many times I've run over a shitty diaper?! TOO MANY! You can't see them in the parking space until it's too late and then you get out and see shit smeared all over the tires and you're about to step in it...I HATE PEOPLE! I HATE THEM WITH A PASSION!

Fuck. I need a twinkie or something.

Kate- or wrap it in a plastic bag and take it with you! i have scented nappy bags for when Marshall does a poo so that when we do throw it in the bin we're not stinking the whole place out

I just thought of a new one today while out shopping a Wal-Mart: people who change their kids' diapers and LEAVE THE NASTY, USED, SHIT-OOZING DIAPER IN THE PARKING LOT!

If you do that: Fuck you! How damned hard is it to walk 50 fucking feet to a trashcan and throw it away?! UGH!

@Jenn thats really all you can do and your right your son will realise why his dad is the way he is and he will apreciate everything you do! When i was little i didn't understand why my dad was a looser and wouldn't come see me i thought it was my moms fault but when i was about 14 i realized my mom was the one who did everything and my dad was just a sperm donor :)

Thanks Meghan - it just infuriates me that he has no conscience whatsoever! I know that one day my son will see the truth with his own eyes, so in the meantime I just keep that smile on my face when he talks about his Daddy and say things like "oh really?" "wow" "neat" even if on the inside I'm screaming.

I have come to the conclusion that ex's do stuff like that because they aren't taking care of the kids...they have nothing but time to figure out ways to push our buttons. Chin up ladies, you're doing a great job!
Speaking of buttons, I hate when J (or anyone for that matter) touches my belly button...makes me sick to my stomach lol

I hate it that my ex can get out of paying his child support because he hides behind his Native status and knows that they can't touch him and then tries to turn it around and say that I'm keeping my son from getting his child support because I went through FRO (Family Responsibility Office) ARGH!!!!!! Why do I let him upset me? :(

My ex is like that too Jodi - only comes around about once every 6 weeks or sometimes longer (once it was 3 months) is habitually late, and doesn't pay child support on top of it all - oh but yet he went on a fucking vacation to MEXICO recently!!!! WTF is that!?! How do people like that sleep at night? UGH!

Anyway - after shopping on Christmas Eve I have another one I thought of - when people give up their right of way. I appreciate the thought of being nice, but if you let me go when you should be going and you suddenly decide to go and hit me - then I am at fault - so just drive and I can wait!!! Or how about when someone turns onto the road in front of you and they go slow - yet there are NO cars behind you so why couldn't they have just waited 10 more seconds to turn?!?

Today's pet peeve - ex husbands telling their kids they will pick them up at 9am, and the poor kid is sitting on a chair looking out the window at 9:30am wondering when the fuck his dad is going to get here. A phone call later..."oops, slept in, maybe an hour or so". You'd think things would have changed in 11 years, but it appears not......and sorry, but the rest of us can't put our lives on hold because YOU can't get yours in order........

@Kati - Oh and because our toilets don't fill so much in the bowl you can't really tell which way the water is turning. I know, I looked after that Simpson's episode.

I'm in New Zealand Vicki. And we have moved on from pull chains LOL All I know is the first few times I used an American toilet I thought I'd blocked it because the water rose SO high. NZ toilets only do that if there's a blockage.

[deleted account]

anika are you EU or aus? I think (now that I think of it) it has to do with the older pull chain toilets. I was always getting shit (yes, no pun intended) from my husband for not scrubbing the shit left in bowl but I thought it was too gross to use a scrubber each time for that. the newer toilets that have the push button for reg water force or extra actually didn't leave marks. my italian friends remember always clogging the n.amer toilets as kids. man though, sure miss the bidet! once I figured out that you didn't use it like sitting on a toilet (duh) I loved it!

maybe the water swirling backwards has something to do with it, LMAO!! you guys are all screwy down there!!!

[deleted account]

so it doesn't leave a shit mark that needs to be cleaned with a scrubber each time. I hated that!

[deleted account]

I heard you should put a ping pong ball in coz they float. But our toilets may be different to yours - the US toilets seem to fill a lot more with water than our ones. Don't know what that's about.

oooh just thought of another!! i live with 4 boys. anybody ever been in a boys bathroom? fucking stinks cause they pee EVERYWHERE!! both of my bathrooms stink like piss, and i can't seem to get it to go away. not only that, but they manage to pee all over the toilet seats too, so when i sit down my butt gets wet! the other day i was giving my youngest a bath, and my oldest decided he was going to go pee, next thing i know the back of my leg is getting peed on! maybe i should work with them, some sort of target practice?? lol!

well, that usually doesn't happen with us katherine, BUT when people don't get what you tell them to get, and end up getting the same thing you got your kids. it happens to me every year with my husbands dad. he doesn't listen worth a shit!! i know i should be grateful, and it shouldn't matter, but gah!! why bother asking what the boys want if you aren't going to get what i suggest???

i happily got rid of my maiden name, i don't want anything about that man, and getting rid of any ties was perfect. plus gipson is an annoying last name. everybody would misspell it and call me giBson, drove me fucking batty.

[deleted account]

ANother pet peeve.... Being told to leave someone alone they want nothing more to do with you and then all they do is harrass you. Drive past on a daily basis, prank calls you name it it's happened and i have had enough! :(

If I took Chad's last name I'd be Dana Ross and it just reminds me too much of Diana Ross....

"That's actually a really old tradition, isn't it, Iris?"

Yes it is.



My brother and I have the same mother but different fathers. But you are right, his last name is the first name of his father and then son, so Gestsson.



Edit: I can hardly say my full name after few drinks...

j/k!



Sorry for getting off topic.

I'm not taking my fiance's really easy to pronounce anglo name just because in my career it's taken 10 years for people to know who I am and I don't want to fight trying to get yet another, less memorable name in their brains.

However, I wish I could. I'd love to have people not stutter when they read out my name. That's why I really pushed giving my daughter her Dad's name and leave mine out of it. She'll have an easier time on that front...of course she could marry some guy whose last name is as clunky and hard to pronounce as mine...and I'd be cool with that. I wouldn't think she was subjugating herself.

Another PP: the word "irregardless" and schedule pronounced the odd Brit way.

I have a friend who took his wife's name. Modern times mean you just go with whatever's right for you in your situation. He wanted to take his wife's name...so he did. Bully for him, I say. :)

I agree with Kate. It is a women's choice what name she wants to use. For me, taking my husband's name makes me proud. I love him with all my heart. We joined our lives together. I honestly don't think I would feel married if I hadn't. To me it just goes with being married, but to each their own. My sister in-law actually went through being unsure if she wanted to hyphenate (because she loves her maiden name) or take her husband's. In the end she took her husband's name because that is what felt right to her.

Marina: I can honestly say I've never had that problem. Eww.

However, for some reason my daughter's morning breath at the moment is bowling me over. Sweet Jesus it's horrid.
