If you missed part 1 click here: Some things and Dude.WTF (Part 1)

I figured it was high time for a little ‘bitch on my blog because I can’. I realize that in the grand scheme of things; the things that do make look twice are the “little things” in life but nonetheless they still make me say WTF:

1. Inappropriate use of UGG Boots

Now, I love my UGG boots. They are comfortable and warm, and especially useful in our cold New England winters. Lately I have seen UGGs being the main focal point for some ugly outfits. Specifically wearing UGG boots with shorts:

Um, this not only looks sloppy but all around ugly. Uggs are meant to keep you and feet warm. Not to be thrown on in the middle of summer just because you are lazy and couldn’t find your flip flops. I also have seen Uggs with sweatpants. Ok, this just makes you look like a homeless person. Uggs should NOT be paired with: shorts, sweatpants/tracksuits, and formal wear.

2.  Fall Fashion: Fur

What is up with all the faux fur? Especially the fur boots. I can 100% say that these boots that are taking over the fall/winter fashion trends are the ugliest things I have ever seen. They kind of remind me of something I would use to clean my floors.

3. Pointless Facebook Groups

Some of the Facebook groups and pages that have been popping up are just straight stupid. Like the Facebook page titled: Napkins. Really, who deemed it necessary to make a facebook page about napkins? Or how about the group about people who hate when one of their hoodie strings is longer than the other? The fact that someone had the time in their day to create this group makes me question the human race as a whole.

Of course, that is only the tip of the iceberg on the stupidity on Facebook.

 

WTF.

First, I must say that I am uber excited that it is a lot warmer outside today and it even seems that Mr. Sun may make a guest appearance! For an area that has been doom and gloom for what seems like forever .. this is good. Very good. I even got to go outside on our porch veranda and just enjoy the weather without freezing my ass off in the rain. It’s the little things in life that totally make my day that much better…

Alas, it is also other ‘little’ things in life that totally urk me – not a day ruiner but more like a WTF moment maker…    And since ya’ll know how I love lists; what better way than to bitch about a few of these things that have left me a bit perplexed lately than with a LIST. I couldn’t think of a better way either; so let’s get started!

Dude. WTF (part 1):

1) INTERNET/TEXT SHORTHAND:

The first on my list is coincidentally in regards to those three letters above: WTF. Now, it is not the actual words that causes me to lose my mind because ask anyone who knows me I have the mouth like a truck driver, it is the whole internet and texting craze with using letters as shorthand for expressions etc. It is getting a little lot out of hand. Some examples that I have seen on the internet (ala Facebook, obviously) and via text:

WTF: What the F**K               SMH: Shake My Head          LML:Love My Life         FML: F**K my life              ATM: At the moment             IMU: I Miss You                    STFU: Shut the F up      LOL: Laughing out loud

Now, I could probably go on and on with this list and still not cover all of the annoying shorthand out there. And, don’t get me wrong, I am all for saving a bit of time or a few chracters in your text message but this is getting out of hand.

2) Recent Restaurant Trends:

I love food. I love going out to eat with my BF to a resturant and just get some “me and him time” over a drink and a good meal. Lately, our experiences going out to eat have been sub-par at best…

I am in no way a picky diner. I am pretty chill and usually do not have any crazy demands – the only exception is that I am a plain kind of person. Usually if I order something I do have make a change or two to it,by omitting something I don’t like (like tomatoes or onions – blech) One thing that I have noticed lately more and more is that servers aren’t writing orders down, and instead just thinking they can memorize it. Now, if the waitstaff could actually do this and get my order right, things would be fine and dandy…but they suck; so they can’t. Therefore, almost every single time I go out to eat something with our order isn’t correct. Then, when we have to send our item back, our super-waitress who was too cool to write down our correct order in the first place, gets snippy with me. Really?

Other trends that are just plain annoying in the restaurant business:                                                                                               *Having to play tag with my waiter just to get a glass of ice water  *Having to pay for a bread basket  = LAME.

3) REALITY TV

Yup. I am going to go there. Briefly, of course because I am just as big a fan of some reality shows as the next American however I feel like the content of some of these shows is really pushing the “someone actually gives a shit?” limit. I think it is bad enough that the Jersey Shore Cast makes more money for one season than most hardworking Americans yearly, but to each their own and clearly people are watching. But when I turn on the tv and see a reality show that follows some Rock/Flavor/Daisy/Real Chance of Love show (I mean, seriously, 4 different version of the same show?!?!) I can’t but help but roll my eyes. Of course, not all reality shows are created equally…

I couldn't help myself posting this...

Some are just dumber than others.

Well, now that I feel purged of my little annoyances I think I am going to take advantage of the sunshine today with a walk to the gym. It is too beautiful outside to be stuck inside!

Q. Anything leaving you saying WTF lately?
