This is Friday-Flip Offs, "my way of ridding myself of weekday angst and frustration before heading into the weekend. I virtually flip off whoever is on my last nerve. It’s very cathartic. The theory is that I don’t take anything out on my husband and kids."
Gigi at Kludgymom is the brains behind this brilliant idea.
So, without further ado, let's begin this VIRTUAL DETOX. Ahem...
(And be forewarned: It's been quite a week here.)
To depressing movies that wreak havoc on my emotional state. Do you not know that I am a fragile flower? And struggle with insomnia without any help from you.
To insurance companies that refuse to pay for out of network providers even when they are the only one of their kind in town. And their ridiculous ploy to confuse by changing their policies every other week, making it impossible to ever really know your own plan. And could you please make one card per family? My wallet is bursting at the seams already.
To skin conditions, and more specifically, pityriasis alba that prevents the skin from accepting pigment, causing my beautiful baby to be made fun of by other mean little girls. It is not her fault. Bugger off.
To money. I hate you. I hate that you are so popular these days. Everyone wants you and there is never enough of you to go around.
To restaurants that keep the AC so cold in the summer that you have to resort to buying hot chocolate to prevent from shivering to death.
To fast food employees that say gross things about your onion ring selection while you are ordering. And then continue to talk about how it tastes and smells like BO in spite of the fact that you are not saying anything and are obviously grossed out. Eew. Grow up.
To the word mom that was used 284 times today. Ok, maybe not. But it certainly feels like it. I understand that is my name and all, but come on. I just need a vacation from that word for like one day. But I’d take an hour. Please?
To those ridiculous machines that make you press a 1 if you speak English. Really? I live in the US of A. Isn't that our first language here? Why must you ask me every time?
To this funk that I am in… it is sunny outside and there is absolutely nothing to feel this crappy about. Knock it off already. Snap out of it. It’s a holiday weekend and you heart holidays? Remember?
ALL OF YOU-- FLIP OFF!!!
Ok, Much better. I feel like I might just survive the weekend.
Now it's YOUR turn. What is bugging you these days? If you are in need of a great vent, try Friday Flip-Offs. It's free and so therapeutic and I'm sure you already have plenty of material.
