Driving around this place sometimes makes me ragey about the things stores choose to put on their signs out front.
My number one most hated meme: your husband says it’s ok for you to make independent choices. Or spend “his” money, I guess. Wow, awesome.
Actual signs: “Hubby called, says ok to get $30 manicure!”
“Your husband called, he said buy as many beads as you want!”
It’s so wrong I don’t even know where to start! You can’t communicate in your relationship… the two of you have control issues… your husband has to send a note to the teacher because little you can’t be trusted… ew ew ew ew.
In addition, I got all ragey at V-day advertising and told my partner he is NOT ALLOWED to get me chocolate or flowers on or around Feb. 14th. Any other time of year is fine, but not for Valentine’s day. The expectation of it grosses me out more than usual this year. I mean, I like flowers. I like roses. Of course I like dark chocolate. I like getting gifts and cards. But the one-day doing-it-cuz-I-have-to thing is grating on my nerves in an entirely sandpapery way right now. [#2 does not celebrate v-day with her partner, but it also doesn’t particularly bother her either. Christmas is really the only commercial holiday she celebrates. Mostly it’s the benefit from celebrating these holidays doesn’t outweigh the costs for her. #2 also hates cut flowers, so her partner is not allowed to get them ever, v-day or not.]
Grumpy readers, what makes you see red?
