I have a love/hate relationship with social media. On one hand, it helps me keep in touch with people I’d never speak to again without it. I also shamelessly promote my business for free. Oh, and sometimes, it’s downright entertainment.
The white-trash s*** that half the people post is actually better than all of the sitcoms on television right now. I’m sorry, girl-from-high-school-that-I-never-talked-to, but trying to keep up with your multiple baby daddies and drama is the only reason I still follow you. Thank you for providing me with endless scrolling laughs.
It also gives people a platform to b***h.
A lot of times, I wonder to myself if I’m the only one going against some of these opinions. Am I seriously THAT b****y or do people just need to shut the f*** up every now and then?
For example, the latest thing that made me say WTF was in a local group of mostly moms. A lady on there was complaining about how offended she was at the doctor’s office. I’m assuming that she can’t or doesn’t want to get pregnant because she said something along the lines of “How dare the nurse ask me if I’m pregnant or planning to get pregnant?”
Well, Sherlock, let’s sleuth this out here for a second.
You’re at the doctor’s office getting a physical and the potential growing of a human is brought up. It simply couldn’t be because the nurse was wondering about birth control, a healthy sex-life, normal periods, etc. She had to have asked because she personally wanted to attack your infertility or obvious hate for children.
An outpouring of loving and supportive comments flew in. “OMG, I’m so sorry that happened to you! How awful! She had no right!” “Bless your little heart! Nobody should be subjected to such insensitivity!”
As a woman who can’t bear children, I have the right to say that the patient needed to calm the f*** down. Honey, if you’re that offended by a nurse asking you a question, you need to seek help. Like, I get it. Not being able to have kids sucks! I’d love to have a kid of my own, with my husband’s huge-a$$ ears and my chubby, chubby cheeks. But that’s just not in the cards.
Reproduction is a normal part of life so questions about it should be expected. IT HAPPENS! “I can’t or don’t want to have children” is the only response needed. Getting upset or crying over the questions will do NOTHING to help your situation. NOTHING. My ticker is just plum broke so there ain’t no babies coming out of me at the moment. I’m not going to let that stop me from living my life and neither should you!
I’m so tired of walking on eggshells all the time as to not offend someone. So, here I sit, b****ing about people b****ing. But my point is, scroll past, y’all. Let it go in one ear and out the other. If you don’t agree, great! But nobody f***ing cares. Well, at least not me.
PS: You should really re-evaluate what you post on social media.
