do you guys remember that one post about how men feel entitled to take up so much space and women have to deal with a lot less?
This is actually a documented thing. You always see men on the subway or tube or whatever using both armrests while women sit with their arms hunched together into their laps. That’s why I always make a point to take up at least one if not both armrests of the tube so men can be uncomfortable for once.
^ again, for all the people telling me posting this picture is complaining too much.
In my college classes (and high school too) guys were always stretching, sticking fists and elbows in my face, leaning their heads back over my desk, over my work, spreading their legs out, kicking my bag with their dirty shoes. And let’s not pretend they were in other guys’ space as much as they were in women’s.
It’s so true, this happens to me every day on the train. Same with the walking thing, women will weave out of the way whereas men just walk straight and plow down anything in their path. I always end up playing chicken with men on the sidewalk now, because I refuse to move out of their way.
I love playing chicken with dudes who hog the sidewalk. BODY CHECK! Fucking assholes.
“NOT ALL MEN ARE LIKE THIS!” FUCK OFF.
“AS A MAN, I THINK THAT…” FUCK OFF.
Men always have the same defensive bullshit to spout every time they get called out on their shit. AND IT IS BORING. They remind me of those toys where you pull a string an they have like 5 phrases they can say. Over and over and over.
same here with playing chicken, its hilarious sometimes because they get this flash of realization in their eyes that says ‘holy shit, she’s NOT going to move/??? what do????’ because THEY ARE SO USED TO EVERYONE MOVING FOR THEM
when i was younger my grandpa drew this on a piece of paper,
and he asked me how i, as the red circle, would get around the two people (black circles) if i was walking down the street.
so of course i came back with
moving out of the way for them as i walked.
he asked me if i thought men would do the same and, at the time, i did because i thought it was just common courtesy. but he told me that men would barrel straight through without giving a shit and that i should do the exact same. because i was the one walking and they were the ones in the way. so that’s exactly what i do.
Michael and I were talking about this concept the other day.
On the plane to CA I had to deal with a guy like this. Part of it was because of the small space, but the other (bigger) part was because he thought he could take both the arm rests (seriously, his elbow was practically IN MY SIDE) making me, and the lady on the other side of him hunch and be uncomfortable. I was practically out the window because of him.
Of all the times I’ve been on the plane, I’ve never had to be PRESSED UP AGAINST THE WALL. And I have sat next to all sorts of people.
A couple of year ago I was taking the Greyhound and had a very long lay over in Memphis, Tennessee. I was walking through the bus station and a man barreled right into me. Even though he body checked the shit out of me and because I am a polite person I said “oh, excuse me” with a friendly smile to which he replied ” You’re excused”. I couldn’t believe what I’d just heard and my face went from friendly to fuck you in 1 second flat. Then he walked away. Almost 3 years later and I’m still pissed at that man. I now refuse to apologize to someone for bumping into ME when I’m walking. Fuck people who do that. I make sure I don’t plow people down and I make sure I don’t invade someone else’s personal space and you should too, assholes.
I accidentally threw a giant cup of water on my mom. It was a world of warcraft cup that she got for me so it was probably extra insulting. She so doesn’t believe me but it was an accident I promise. LOL I guess it doesn’t help that I can’t quit laughing but it was pretty damned funny. This year is full of firsts for me…
Can you believe that I’m 27 years old and I am just now finding what it feels like to be happy with myself? Last night I sat here trying to describe what I was feeling and I couldn’t believe that I did not know what this feels like. Happy. Just happy. I am now happy with myself and apparently I have never had this feeling before. It’s fucking amazing.
I just found tons of glitter in my nieces art supply crap for school work….MINE. And I’m so doing my nails with them tonight ^.^ Sooo many colors….sparklyyyy.
-10 in the self esteem department
I just lost some self esteem thanks to my 8 year old niece. I was taking pics of myself so I could use one as my bio pic and she said it looked “silly”. Wtf does that mean? I thought the picture was nice. And the little brat won’t tell me what’s so funny about my picture. Sigh. Oh well. Looks like you guys don’t get a pic after all. :(
For some reason I find it extremely necessary to wear a neon tutu and fishnet stockings. I just have to. So I’m browsing materials so I can make one for myself. Then I’ll find a rave to go to. I live in atlanta, it can’t be that hard to find one, right?
I’ve become one crafty bitch lately :D
Change of plans..I’m going out tonight! This should be an interesting night :D
My niece just said ” I ate a butterfly of funniness.”
Today I’m cutting my hair, doing my nails, cooking a big ol’ pot of homemade chili, and I might try to finish one of the scarfs that I’m knitting for my nieces. If there’s any time left over I might get to level 90 on my mage but really I just drag my ass around when I have to quest. I hate it so much.
Tonight I may or may not be getting drunk….by myself….and playing wow. Idk it could maybe happen and if it does, well there’s nothing wrong with it.
Playing wow and eating ravioli.. Wondering if i should put some cheese on it
Elvis was effing hot. I would have banged him :D I think my eyes do the sexy eyes like his does ;)
I’ve been having a wow-fest and neglecting almost everything else in my life but I’m about to take a Jimmy John’s break because I’m so hungries! MMMMMMMMMM Jimmy John’s. I think I will marry a Jimmy John’s sandwich in the morning and eat it sometime during the day then I’ll marry another the next day. This will happen every day and I’ll never be alone again :D OK I’m delirious now, so what.

So I inadvertently made plans to see my friend Kat BEFORE I realized the only day she could come was today. You know what else is today? Mists of Pandaria. I cannot miss it for you. I don’t even like you that much. Sure I haven’t seen you in 2 years but you can wait and wow cannot. Sorry. On second thought I’m not even that sorry. Easy decision woman.
