Introducing WTF?! Fridays

Please welcome WTF?! Fridays. I decided I need a way of venting at the end of the week so have come up with this series to let out a few the things that made me scratch my head or made my blood boil in the recent days. Most of which consist of everyday grievances and bad parenting . So if you've found that this week was a bit stressful and want the blog world to hear about it then by all means join along with me.

1.More rain!? Literally two weeks ago we were hammered with rain. There was major flooding in some areas. Electricity was lost. Trees were uprooted. Squirrels were displaced. Do we really need to suffer through this again? On top of that it’s going to be in the mid to high 70’s so that probably means humid and gross. If it’s going to rain it should at least be nice and cold so I can bundle up and drink hot cocoa. WTF, weather?!

 2. A kindergartner brought his mothers crack pipe and meth to school for show and tell. Not only is it ridiculous that she’s a mother and doing drugs but the fact the child was able to get a hold of these items is terrifying. Makes you wonder how many kids are living under these circumstances that we just don't hear about. What's even sadder is that she's probably too high to even care and too addicted to seek proper help. WTF, mothers?!

3. I was researching what to pack in a hospital bag for when I have the baby. On that list was nutritious foods for your labor partner. This was written for the expecting mother. I love my husband but I think he can fend for himself on that one. Also, Doritos aren't really part of a balanced diet. It also suggested cassette tapes to listen to to help you relax. I think the article was a little outdated and confused. WTF, whoever wrote that piece of information?!

4. People would seriously rather stand on the metro then take the seat right next to the big fat pregnant lady? I know I look hungry but I'm not going to eat you. It's nice if you respect my space but my ass does not need that much extra room and it makes me feel like a leper or homeless person when you refuse to be beside me. WTF, strangers on public transportation?!

Nice feature and good way to get things out your system :)
When I packed my hospital bag I included dry snacks like crackers and cereal bars. I figured they could sit in the bag without spoiling, and I could pick up fruit when the time came.
Then during my labour I needed certain meds that meant I wasn't allowed to eat or drink. I could just about cope watching my Hubby eat while I felt hungry. But then, during a painful contraction, he started loudly crunching on a cereal bar whilst rubbing my back!
I'll just say my reaction was not the best, so he immediately dropped the snack and didn't eat in front of me until my labour was done :)

Lol, love this. I heard about the kindergarten story...pretty crazy.

And I totally agree about packing the husband snacks. Maybe I'm selfish but he's NOT allowed to eat infront of me when I give birth. My rule is: I'm not allowed to eat, so he's not allowed to eat infront of me.

hahaha! I just found your blog through Secret Confessions of a Young Wife and boy am I glad I did!

This feature is awesome! I hear you on the rain though. I live in Richmond, VA and everyone had massive flood warnings because the ground can't hold anymore water.

Love your site *follows*!

Preach it, girl!! I should really get in on this! Brilliant idea. Sorry the weather sucks to the max, but if it helps any, I'd sit next to you on the metro- hahaha!! As always, you have managed to have me laughing my head off again. Have a great weekend, friend! :)

I have to say I think I am going to love WTF Fridays. It is so terrible about the mother.

The Presutti's September 24, 2011 at 6:29 PM  

This post is hilarious!

In my country pregnant women are so previlaged that they can ask for any food and any kind of comfort and they will get that within a wink.

marie September 25, 2011 at 12:18 AM  

Consider me enlightened. Crazy. I would for sure sit next to you on the metro because having 3 kids I know that all pregnant ladies carry food at all times.

Denise September 25, 2011 at 12:42 AM  

hahaha I love this! Fridays just became my favorite day of the week :)

I have missed you this week, but I'm back now!

Holly September 25, 2011 at 1:45 AM  

Wow, that's really sad about the little kid and the drugs, but I am laughing about the cassette tapes in the hospital labour bag! I wonder how old that article was!?
