Sorry - but being a working mother was no big deal back in the 90s. I don't know where younger people get this idea that somehow their generation revolutionised everything. It was the mid 90s not the mid 60s.

The thing is - it's not about her 'ageing gracefully' and then being told to shut-up and now go away and take your medicine.  She had a procedure that went wrong - it was a botched procedure. I think some people take some kind of secret delight in a former supermodel having has this done to her. 


We all know our bodies change as we get older - but she should of had this procedure and this shouldn't of happened. It's bit like having breast implants and it going wrong and just saying 'oh well...you deserved this because you are so vain'. Negligence is negligence is negligence. This could of happened to anyone. 

She deserves compensation and validation. Not mockery.

And I might add Guest...alot of these people I deal with run associations or clubs and when I suggest they send us an email they won't do it - if you want that kind of responsibility you have to start living in 2022 not 1975.

@guest2 Sure - that's true - but you cut yourself off from pretty much anything these days if you don't get on board. You have to go with the flow.

Oh god yes!!! I'm a receptionist and it drives me to absolute distraction when you get people who are in their 60s/70s and refuse to use the internet or email to do stuff. You are not that 'old'. The internet/email is about 25 years old - you've had plenty of time to get used to it. It's not a new fangled invention that you wish would go away.


You know...don't bitch about a world you think you don't understand and wish for the 'good old days' when you actively refuse to engage in it.

Kookai are bad as well - they don't stock beyond a size 12 - 14.

I think some of them look absolutely fine - I especially like the black dress number. Anyway...these girls should count themselves lucky - I had to wear my debut dress for my Year 12 formal. I looked like a teenage bride.

@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. 

lizbette February 4, 2021

@fightofyourlife Okay - whatever.

lizbette February 2, 2021

@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.

lizbette February 2, 2021

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.


I've had some woeful experiences - like this bloke interviewed me on the phone for about five minutes and I only lived up the road from the work place. It turned out this place was a disaster.

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. 


Workplace bullying is real. I'm in a low level position because I have been that traumatised that I won't go for new jobs now.
