      I didn’t realize Italian Catholics ate fish cuz they couldn’t eat meat. I’ve worked as a supermarket seafood department manager for 8 years, obviously I know all about the feast of the seven fishes, but only this year did someone tell me they couldn’t eat meat. I’d offered them some bacon wrapped sea scallops. I’m only partially Italian, and grew up Lutheran. On whichever day we can all get together (This year it was Christmas Day) we carb it up w/baked ziti, my mom makes Stromboli, my uncle brings sausages, meatballs, and usually Chicken francese, and we all drink and open gifts, and some of us younger members (all well over 18) smoke some Christmas reefer.

      Pathetic singletons need to find some self esteem. I am single again, and I’m all about spending the extra dough on myself, and I don’t anticipate my family commenting on my lack of a love life, but if they do, I’ll gently (only cuz of the holiday) put them straight. Maybe it’s the nagging societal stigma that one must have “someone” to share their life with…I share my life with the people who want to share it with me, and maybe I’m an enigma, but I have just as many coupled friends as single ones. (The trick is to make sure your friends are smart enough not to date douchebag and/or losers) I’m more likely to tell a friend that I cannot stand their S.O. and not to bring them around me than for them to leave me out for being single. I have no shortage of people who would like a date with me, but for one reason or another the feeling isn’t mutual and I would rather live a fulfilling single life than a life after settling for whoever would take me. I make a shit ton of $$ so I certainly don’t need a man to financially support me, and I’m not scared of a little heavy lifting or paying for the service of having heavy lifting done for me. Maybe this list is geared toward 20 somethings? I was a lot more dismayed to be single in my early 20’s than I am at 32.

      I didn’t even read this whole article because nothing annoys me more than people who expect me to figure out their hand signals because they’re refused to learn English. It’s not entirely their fault, this country should declare an official language and it should be English. This isn’t to say that I care if someone speaks another language, but for service industry jobs. If I can’t help you or you can’t help me it is a problem. This includes the deaf man who came into my store and excitedly/angrily was waving his arms and making angered grunting noises motioning to the case. Idk what the hell he wanted, and if he’s not gonna bring a translator, hems got no reason to be pissed at me! Speak whatever language you want at home, on the streets, but if you come up to my counter and can’t say you want a pound of salmon with the skin removed, I’m gonna make it clear that your shitty sign language is bothering me.

      It is one thing if you both are alcoholics. My parents met in a bar in August 1975, got married in. November 1980, and have been together ever since. They are both social alcoholics, and it wasn’t always smooth sailing and isn’t to this day. Thankfully no violence, mostly annoyances. It’s also one thing if one person doesn’t drink and the other person does with moderation. It is also sad if you fell in love with someone who became an alcoholic after you were deep into a relationship. However, if you go into a relationship thinking with your dick or your vagina, pushing all colored flags aside cuz you’re physically attracted, or you think you’re the magic key to “curing” (changing) their behavior, you’re a fool and you should cut your losses now and save yourself anymore trouble and heartache. IT IS NOT GOING TO GET BETTER UNLESS THE ALCOHOLIC WANTS TO HELP THEMSELVES AND IS GETTING SOBER BECAUSE THEY WANT TO AND NOT JUST BECAUSE THEY’RE NAGGED INTO SOBRIETY!!!

      Maybe some are saying it’s ok to attack Muslims, I am not, but since they are the ones who are targeted by ignorant people, it would be worse for someone who only “looked” Muslim to be attacked. Not that it’s worse over all, but as a white “Christian looking” person, I don’t have to fear my small minded American cowards attacking me for “looking Muslim,” but a Sikh person might, or any other “Middle Eastern looking” person does. To them, after their attack, it must feel EXTRA shitty that they were victims of senseless violence for looking like something people are afraid of.

      It’s not just a joke, or at least it shouldn’t be and that is the point. I doubt you read all the responses, but someone made a very good point. If there was a meme of a black man hanging from a tree captioned “You just can’t hang with Tyrone.” Most people except white supremacists (which maybe you are. Idk you are too cowardly to have a picture next to your handle) would be crazy with how inappropriate that “joke” was, but because these days Americans hatred is directed toward the Middle East and Muslims, a joke featuring someone who is Sikh is cool even though whoever posted it was too dumb to know the difference. If someone went out and killed this US citizen because of this joke, I’m sure you’d still be laughing, because you are an ignorant asshole.

      I’ve always been a loner. When I was younger, I was a weird kid, and had no friends. Now I have plenty of friends, but sometimes I just like my alone time. I am never alone wishing someone was with me, and sometimes when a friend calls, I’ll ignore it. I’m not usually doing anything, but sometimes I want to do just that. I go out to eat, or to the movies by myself, I don’t care. The stares don’t bother me in the least, but to the person who wants to be on their phone in Starbucks, no one is going to approach someone with their face in their phone. I’ve also always been single. If I get a boyfriend, that’s cool, but I never feel like a 3rd wheel when out with my coupled friends. I just spent a weekend with my two friends who are married. As one of them put it, I’m not a 3rd wheel, more like a spare tire. You don’t always need me, but it’s always nice to have me around.

      This must be written for 20-somethings or for people who’s friends only date douchebags. My friends who have others were smart/lucky enough to get good ones, and I have a fun time with ALL of them, because I have a fun time with myself.  When someone asks why I’m single, it’s annoying because for the most part it is by choice which a lot of people can’t seem to fathom. I’m a straight woman, but men annoy me so much, I don’t think I’d be able to tolerate the dumb shit they do from anything other than a friend. I make my own money, pay my own bills, come and go without having to ask if I have plans, and can still get laid if I want to. I don’t think motherhood is something I’m striving for which is another thing people can’t seem to wrap their minds around. I know a lot of people will judge me as an angry scorned woman, but I’m not a man hater. I just dislike compromise. I’m 31, I like what I like.
