Things I Am Over

"That awkward moment when..." - Nine out of ten times whatever follows these four words isn't even awkward. "That awkward moment when you forget to turn your blinker on." That isn't awkward. That's just rude and makes other people hate you.

YOLO - As opposed to...what? Living twice? And furthermore, you can't just use this as an excuse for everything. You may only live once, but you still have to deal with the consequences of your actions while you're doing that living. Grow up.

Summer - It's hot. It's humid. It's summertime in the South. And. I. Hate. It. I have NEVER liked summer. It's sticky, it's gross, and it does terrible things to my hair. The only time it's tolerable is when a body of water is involved, but even that is questionable. Is it Fall yet?

Mason Jars - Holy crap. Some of y'all go bat shit crazy over Mason jars. And I'm willing to bet most of you have never even done any canning. Can we move past this "trend" already and leave the Mason jars where they belong? In the memories we have of our Memaw's house.

PBR - When did this become the "cool" thing to drink? You know who drinks PBR where I come from? Old men who drink a case a day and don't have the money to afford anything else. Just stop it.

Arm parties - I get that it's cute and is just the thing to do now days, but do you really have to show us the same thing day after day after day?

Pictures of feet - Summer time means pictures of feet. Feet in sandals. Freshly pedicured feet. Feet in the sand. Feet as we gaze off at the pool beyond while you tell us what a lovely day it is. Stop. Just stop.

Novelty Nails - I'm not going to say much here because I know so many of you lovely ladies love the paint-the-third-nail-a-different-color or have a funky design look, but I'm not a fan. To each his/her own.

Phone / Car Temps - For the love of all things good in this world STOP STOP STOP!!! In the past two days ALONE I have seen no fewer than 75 pictures of screen shot forecast temps or car temps on Twitter. It's summer. It's hot. WE GET IT. And I'd also like to point out that most of the ones doing this are the same people who were just so glad summer was here. New rule: I'm going to start @'ing every single person on my timeline who does this once an hour with an updated temp picture until they stop the insanity.

Year End - It's driving me insane. I'm over it. Done. It has taken over my life. It cannot be over soon enough.

Hate Reading - I do this WAY too much, especially on Twitter (bet you couldn't tell since most of my rants are Twitter related...). I have to stop. Namaste.

Rant with me! What are you over?


  1. Ha! These are too funny (I know rants aren't supposed to be funny, but they all made me laugh... especially because I agree with almost all of them).

    The temperature complaints are the WORST -- all these people who bitched all winter about how they couldn't wait for summer and now complain that it's too hot. I'm with you - hate hate hate summer. I'd take 30 degrees over 90 degrees any day!

  2. I believe I may have Tweeted something once to the effect of "Can't we all just live in the moment? Why are we all 'BOO FEBRUARY IT IS COLD I CAN'T WAIT FOR SUMMER'" - kinda plays into the temperature thing. YES. SUMMER IS HOT. Me Tarzan, you Jane. Asinine.

  3. I am going to have to agree with you on the Mason Jars, PBR (whats next keystone light), pictures of feet and the Hot Summer's! Its already 91* in middle Georgia and its not even noon yet! BLAH, that is exactly what my hair is saying today! Funny, but such a true rant, thank you!!


  4. I love these.

    I am sick of those paper striped straws. I mean, after being in liquid for 2 minutes they get all mushy and don't even work.

  5. I totally agree on the PBR. I don't get the pictures of feet. I have a few mason jars around from using up stuff my grandmother put up and on occasion i feel the need to drink out of them. I don't feel old enough to start putting up food yet.

  6. "YOLO - As opposed to...what? Living twice? And furthermore, you can't just use this as an excuse for everything. You may only live once, but you still have to deal with the consequences of your actions while you're doing that living. Grow up."- - - hear hear. Well put.

    What are “Arm parties”?

  7. This seriously just made me laugh. Sorry, I know it's not supposed to be funny, but I agree with so many of these things that I had to laugh. I mean seriously, "that awkward moment" needs to stop. Immediately. My cousin uses that phrase all of the time and it's always about something stupid. I like wearing lots of bracelets when I'm dressing up, but rarely share photos of my arm party and when you go to work, they just aren't practical. YOLO? That's another dumb phrase.

  8. The only thing better than an arm party is someone taking pictures of their "daily stacks". Like, are you a rapper with piles of money? Nope. Just say, "I wore these bracelets with this watch". Doesn't require a slang term or "party" of any kind.
