- mollyd9 + "Trevor Noah Still Doesn't Get It"
Fight Club is the only movie I need.
Hate to say it but, I get so tired of vegetarians and vegans whining on the internet. I am a meat eater and I try my best to get my meat from responsible sources (we get a quarter cow a year. It has a name and we use everything we get from the cow) I live In a city in Oregon where being vegetarian/vegan/gluten free is a a norm, nobody really gives it a second thought. That said, I imagine there are many other places in the country with peolple who are really confused by those who don’t eat meat or animal products, and that sucks. Vegan food is just as delicious as any other kind. I love me some bacon, but don’t knock the veg dishes until you try them!
If anyone made a cutesy joke about a family tragedy the way her opponent did, I would hope to take them down as fast as Rowdy Ronda did.
My now husband was very reluctant to even tell his parents he was seriously dating someone when we got together over 8 years ago. It really bothered me that he didn’t ever aknoledge my existance to them after 4 months of is seeing eachother (we all live in the same town but, I’ve since learned everybody has different relationships with their folks). He eventually told them he was seeing someone and his mom immediately invited me over to have dinner with them for his birthday. My family has always been very middle class and his family lives in upper hills/aka wealthy part of town. My dad has been an engraver/jeweler when he wasn’t doing janitorial work as long as I have been around. When I told him I was going to “meet the parents” I panicked and asked “can I please wear all the jewelry you have around here for this?!” He had a bunch of stuff he hadn’t yet sent to his sellers yet so I put on everything he had. I showed up looking like the daughter of a Czar or like I was ready to battle the armies of Mordor. His mom kept giving me the “lean back in your chair side eye” and mentioning how lovely my jewelry was (seriously, the cuff bracelets were stacked up to my mid forearm). Moral of the story: When you meet the parents, be your most polite self and don’t cover yourself in metal unless you intend on fighting an Ork afterwards.
I can’t wait until conversations about her 5 years from now look more like this: “Oh hey, remember that uppity chick with the pony tail who was on the Disney Channel?”
“Ya know, the one that licked the doughnuts”
“Ooohhhh yeah! What did song did she sing anyway?”
“I can’t even remember. ‘Call Me Maybe’ or some crap like that probably.” Don’t worry, she’ll go away soon, we just have to be patient.
Response to This 17-Year-Old Was Told By Her J.C. Penney Boss To Change Out Of Shorts She Got At The Store:
Glad there is now room for a person who needs a job and isn’t going to bitch about not looking cute while they work. Dress codes are a working norm in whichever field you are in. Not saying she looked inappropriate for walking down the street and enjoying the day, but she was working at a chain department store. She was asked to change and come back, not degraded or insulted, just asked how long it would take for her to come back to work after putting something else on. Hope she enjoys her new found “freedom”/lack of employment. All 17 year-olds who love posting cutesy pictures of themselves on instagram CLEARLY understand what women have had to go through, and still do, in the work place in general.
