@mpritchtobe1984:  Nope, I live in the Midwest too and in a major city. My sister texts me pictures of things that say it just to piss me off 😂

@bouviebee:  totally agreed on the earrings and mostly agreed on the photos. We post a limited number of flattering photos with strict security settings. Yes I know I could email them but that feels spammy to me. If you want to see them then go look and if you don’t then don’t follow me on social media – I place the choice in your hands. No potty/tub etc photos though! I’ve seen tub photos of children of old acquiantances that I have never met IRL and that is weird. I also always listen if my daughter says “mama no photos”. Ok kiddo – phone’s away I won’t take your picture! Most of the time she loves to ham it up for the camera so it’s not like I have a shortage of photos anyway!

@mayblueskies:  It may not make sense to you and that’s fair enough. You do you. You have the wedding the way you want and other people will get married how they want. Nothing wrong with doing it differently and there’s often enough a trivial and/or practical reason why it happens a certain way.

Weddings come in so many forms all over the world and laws pertaining to weddings and marriage are different all over. So, if people get married at court before having a wedding party at a later date there’s often a reason for it. In lots of european countries a civil ceremony at the court is a requirement for a marriage to be legal. Religious weddings only serve to give religious recognition and have no legal basis. Neither does a non-religious ceremony. That’s why there are often two ceremonies, if the couple don’t manage to book the same date for both ceremonies. That can happen easily, especially if certain dates are popular and very quickly booked. There are lots of other reasons too that have nothing to do with guests. Weddings have happened this way since before the pandemic ever happened and it’s common enough that guests in european countries don’t think that the wedding ceremony happening at a later date is a “lie” like I’ve seen people argue on WB. At the end, people just don’t care; they’re just here for the party, the food and the booze.

If you’re not prepared to train your dog to behave well and be obedient then you shouldn’t have a dog.

If you walk your dog with a long, extendable lead so that you have no control over your dog, then you shouldn’t have a dog.

If you buy a dog for its cuteness rather than its likelihood of having a cooperative personality then you shouldn’t have a dog.

If you are not prepared to pick up the poop then you shouldn’t have a dog.

If you work such long hours that you know you will barely see your dog and will have to depend on an army of dog walkers and dog sitters then you shouldn’t have a dog. 

If, when I’m having a picnic, you tell me that your dog will eat my sandwich but you don’t act to prevent your dog from eating my sandwich then you shouldn’t have a dog.

If your dog behaves badly multiple times and you continue to look surprised then you shouldn’t have a dog.

If you tell your dog off using complicated words and appealing to its reasoning, its conscience and its sense of fair play then you probably should have a child and not a dog.

There, I’ve said it all. So cathartic!

@katebluestone:  a family member stuck in a MLM scheme used this word waaaaayyyyy too much on his pushy posts and now i cannot use the word “blessed”. 

I am so blessed to live my life with financial freedom selling this face cream

spending time with my family in the middle of the afternoon #blessed

Stop wasting your time and money working 9-5 and get blessed like me #sothankful #makingmoney

I am truly blessed the company seems to have fizzled out and I no longer see those posts

Cyclists that cycle on main roads in packs and don’t move in when there are cars. People that don’t understand how to drive on country roads and don’t understand how to use passing places. 

People that say boys will be boys to excuse shitty behaviour. 

Entitled people who push and shove in shops and on busy streets even when there’s room to pass without shoving. 

Parents that judge dog owners when the dog is young and in not fully trained and tell you how to train a dog when they’ve never had one, and those same people say I’m not allowed an opinion on parenting SMH. 

People who think they know better on a subject that you’ve literally spent a decade at university studying when they are using their own anecdotal opinion based solely on their experience! Argh! 

People who think that men and women must obide by traditional gender roles or there’s something wrong with the relationship and maybe your husband is gay because he likes being bought a bunch of flowers every now and then.

@Supersleuth:  Say it louder for the people in the back!

However, I’ll make a small exception, because I love my small army of dog sitters. They make it possible for me to avoid leaving my dogs alone for more than 4-6 hours at a time and that makes my heart happier than them having to endure a standard 9-5 on the days I can’t work from home, even if they technically could make it the 8-9 hours.

@botanistbee:  lol I majored in anthropology and once got into an argument with a guy on the second date over “survival of the fittest”. He thought it literally meant strength and couldn’t understand the concept of things like camouflage being an evolutionary advantage. He asked me what made me the expert and I told him I studied anthropology for four years. He went quiet. There was no third date. 🤣🤣

@peach11:  That’s interesting, because I’m one of the ones who didn’t live with my OH (or have sex) until we married, and sometimes I feel like that makes me a creature with 3 heads on WB!!!  (To be fair, it also makes me like a creature with 3 heads in real life.)

@anotherb33:  Ooh I’ve got an opinion that’s certainly unpopular here on the bee but here goes,  I think in laws should be treated equally to the blood relative.  For example if the spouse gets their birthday acknowledged with a birthday dinner, cards, cake, and presents so should the husband/wife of that person.  To me being engaged/married but especially marriage signifies the joining of a new family there fore your in laws become your family.  The son/daughter shouldn’t get ten gifts on their birthday/christmas while the spouse gets two or even worse just acknowledged by text for their birthday  With that being said I’m not referring to situations where you don’t get along at all or with the in law or the in law is toxic I’m referring to cases here where you get along with your in law but you are excluding them just because they are in law and want them to know that they aren’t “real” family to you. But it shouldn’t be based on principle of they are an inlaw. 

 

If you do this i’m going to assume you are a shit person who doesn’t really know what it means to be family.  Without your child in law you wouldn’t have your family expanding giving you grandchildren.  I just find that if everyone does their part to make their in laws feel welcome into the family and treat everyone equally everyone will get along better.  There are definiely blood relatives who are toxic as well or who stopped speaking and even cases of divorce where the person still continues to talk and have a close relationship with their ex in law.  

I know this opinion is going to ruffle some feathers but it’s honestly how I feel and it’s just food for thought so you can take it or leave it.

I get totally sick of people thinking that mental illness isn’t real and suicide thoughts/depression are just made up for “attention.” (I am a psych nurse and I hear this from family members all the time.)
