@pippa but unfortunately the way society is set up men are conditioned to behave this way - ALOT of men. A few pearls is not a necklace make.
I know that Pippa...but unfortunately they are in the vast minority.
You know...this just leaves me so sad...this isn't even funny. Another reason why I'm glad I'm single and out of a relationship. The selfishness and the child-like behaviour of these men validates and affirms my decision to stay single.
I read his ex-wife's autobiography - he basically groomed her from the age of 16....and this was a 32 year old man corresponding to her from that age - the letters he wrote to her were creepy and nauseating. But he gets away with it remember because he's a 'genius'...or just another songwriter who wrote a bunch of good songs.
mmmm...no...alot of these cheaper fragrances don't last all that long - well the Zara ones don't. The Elizabeth Arden Green Tea might be a different story - just be aware cheap perfumes are cheap for a reason.
Oh god...these are so boring and bland. They are all variations on the one thing that has been done to death - Scandi - yawn. Like Rush I prefer lots of colour and interesting things to look at. It's like no-one really took any risks here. Next!
Yes!! my mother used to say messages but she wasn't Irish. I think it's a generational thing. She would say 'I'm going to get my messages'.
@bluebear11 Yep...I'm hearing ya. I go to Just Cuts and do my colouring at home. I feel going to the hairdressers or beauticians can be an exercise in shaming. Like you are using the wrong products or if you really cared you would invest in yourself...blah blah...it's so comes from a place of privilege.
@fightofyourlife Okay - whatever.
@fightofyourlife yeah....that's obvious...but even a couple of days isn't that much - I've gone a couple of days without a wash and gone to the hairdresser. That shouldn't be a big deal.
If you find washing dirty hair 'disgusting' then you are in the wrong job. Why would you bother washing your hair that day when you are going to the hairdressers later? You don't actually touch the hair until it's wet anyway and you are using shampoo - so I don't understand how you find that gross. I find going to the hairdresser's intimidating also - no wonder I get stressed asking for a boring cut and blow-dry.
or...one woman asked me (and this was only a couple of years ago)...at a top university was I married and did I have kids.
Where do I start? I've had a number. One throwing an item at me and calling me a 'little sh*t', another one thought I had a hearing problem and pressured me into getting my hearing checked, another one completely ignoring only to talk to me to be given an outline of the job.
It depends. If it's an exxy restaurant - no - just leave the kids with a babysitter. It's not fair on other people who might have spent some time saving up for a special occasion. Children need to be socialised - and this means restaurants settings. But that isn't permission for kids just be kids - they also need to be reined in.
I'm studying a course at the moment and someone created a What's Ap group - it was a nightmare! just constant comments, mostly whines about people not getting their sh*t together study wise and expecting people to feel sorry for them. I had to get out of there - it was doing my head in.
On the proviso we can retire the term '....as a mother'. As if any non mother couldn't understand anything that is child related.
This scares the hell out of me - it's so sobering. I thank god I have my own apartment as well through an inheritance. But that said...with all the qualifications in the world age is a huge barrier. No-one can see past 50. The world is unfortunately made up of 30 somethings making all the hiring decisions who seem to think they will never get old or somehow 40 plus is light years away.
I know what you mean. I remember having a 'mentoring' session with this woman who ran her own home organisation business and she flat out told me she wouldn't have me tidying her home (you guessed it married + kids) because she said that I 'wouldn't understand the needs or what was needed to be done' because I didn't have children'. Her suggestion was just stick to tidying units for people like myself. Okay...gee thanks.
So much better! such an improvement...interesting places with interesting people - not something out of a home interior mag or Insta or something you've seen a thousand times before. Keep it up Mamamia!
I agree with Rush. I could buy a mag and get the same thing. I would really much rather see people's places as they are - you know with a bit of personality - not someone's reno job which you have seen a thousand times before - there is nothing new in this -it's lovely...but a little dull. I love the earlier pieces where it showcased people's quirky spaces...their interesting books they have read, or their fav daggy lounge etc - you know...things that tell a story - I thought that was the spirit of the piece?
