I would definitely say that money posts are the most frustrating. The ones about how horrible credit is (like

Also, the TTC ladies. I just want to get this wedding over with so we can have babies!

@Bridey77:  Those with big diamonds. Even though I dont’ want one, it would be nice tobe able to afford to get one if i did!

Bees who have no student loan debt. I have so much. I didn’t get any help from parents and they made too much money for me to be eligible for grants. So I had to finance undergrad and grad school via loans. Going to be in debt forever.

Oh yeah I remember a thread recently where a Bee was bragging like “We did ALL ON OUR OWN” meanwhile they don’t seem to calculate the financial support of their parents who helped them out with.. rent (by allowing them to live at home rent free), paid for college, gave you down payment for home and wedding fund. 

But yeah okay you’re suchhhhh a self starter. *rollseyes*

I get jealous of bees who live in affordable areas with solid/good careers and have bought houses in their early 20s. I live in a prohibitively expensive area (NYC/Northern NJ) and plan to move out this year, but at 30, home ownership is still rather far away for me especially since I’ll be changing jobs when I move (looking to buy by 35).

However, I know that there are those that are jealous of me of spending my 20s living it up in Boston, Los Angeles, and now NYC. So it works both ways.

I get mostly jealous (and slightly eye-rolly) when bees start saying “so-and-so said I’m so pretty, so I couldnt possibly do (insert totally normal thing here)” 

or the “people tell me all the time I’m pretty, but I don’t see it” etc. etc. 

anything to do with woman boasting about how beautiful (or thin or fit or whatever)  they are makes me jealous as a skunk.

@FleeSircus:  Glad I wasn’t the only one irritated by that, only I was jealous I was just straight up annoyed.

Those who have jobs they love and make enough to be comfortable. We’ve been living paycheck to several days before the next paycheck and I can’t find a job.

Those who are photogenic. I look like crap in all my pictures. Not to mention my skin is red, dry and ridiculously flaky. No make up will fix that.

Those who are skinny (been busting my ass for months and haven’t gotten much smaller). I lost a little over 20 pounds without much issue, then suddenly, nothing.

People who get to have babies!!

I’ll never get my husband on board until everything about our lives is absolutely perfect.  I’ll probably be dead before it is.

@bluegreenjean:  My Fiance was the same way. Keep at him that nothing ever can or will be perfect, and even if things were muraculously perfect when you get knocked up, they sure as hell wont stay that way. Who puts their life on hold until evrything is perfect? Surely he didn’t wait to say, graduate high school, get a first job, get married etc – when everything in his was absolutely perfect?

I have to say, reading about Bee’s wishing their parent was alive to attend their wedding absolutely put my petty jealousy trigger in perspective! From here out, I’ll be focusing on what I DO have 🙂

@FutureLadyL:  +1

I’m grateful to have my parents and my family still with me.

That being said, bigger boobs and a higher paying job would be nice.

Bees who live in places where a 100 person wedding for 10k is feasible, or where 20k – 40k is a down payment on a home.

I feel you ladies without moms. My mom was killed 10 months before my wedding. I see the posts with Bee’s complaining about their mom’s (not that I may not have been one of them if circumstances were different) and I think- ‘If you only knew what you had!’

Also, Bee’s who get pregnant by simply thinking about it and Bee’s who NTNP. I’ve been actively TTC for 7 months with no luck. It’s begun stressing me out, but due to health issues I can’t just NTNP- I either have to try or be on the pill so my body doesn’t ruin itself any more than neccessary.
