Three Stupid Things


Yes, I know - there are WAY MORE than three stupid things in the world - oy!  But as it's Three on Thursday with Carole and Kat, and I was in the mood to write a post, but didn't know what to write about, here are three things that just this morning are stupid.

1.  This sweater and others like it.


Look - it's either a sweater with sleeves or it's a tank top with no sleeves.  This is one of the worst examples of this trend I have ever come across, and if I saw someone wearing this, I would be tempted to trip them walking down the street.

2.  The story about the actress Rose McGowan's Twitter account being suspended.   I barely know who she is, except that I know she is one of the people who spoke out about that dirtbag Harvey Weinstein.  Apparently something she tweeted "violates the rules of Twitter."  Frankly, I can't imagine what that might be, as a certain party who is an alleged leader of our country seems to do a lot of insulting, bashing, accusatory, and otherwise inappropriate things on Twitter multiple times in one day, without consequences.  I mean, he's threatened nuclear war!   This is just another example of why people who have been victims of physical and/or emotional assault don't speak up. 

3.  OMG this commercial, which I saw this a.m. before I left for work, during a break from the local news.


NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO x a bazillion!!!  It is currently October 12; Halloween hasn't happened yet, and Thanksgiving comes after that, and THERE ARE RULES PEOPLE.  (Granted, they are my rules but they make complete sense and should be imposed on everyone.)  You may say, well, they threw in the pumpkin flavored pancakes, but no no no no that doesn't mean it's OK.  When you show "holiday" stuff with a tree, red and green decorations, and the "Nutcracker" playing in the background, you are not talking about Halloween and/or Thanksgiving.  Retailers start putting up displays early because they are selling THINGS.  Denny's is selling FOOD, and that's a whole 'nother ballgame if you ask me. (And you didn't, but also know that my rules specifically state no Christmas decorations until Thanksgiving is over.  I completely ignore them anywhere until then.)  Even if they wanted to pop this up around Thanksgiving, I could live with it.  BUT THERE ARE NEARLY THREE WEEKS LEFT BEFORE IT'S HALLOWEEN!  Granted, I don't know the last time I visited a Denny's (there are none near me), but that's not the point.

Stabbiness ensues.

I'm glad to have gotten those things off my chest.  Feel free to return to your regularly scheduled day.

The Christmas Season officially starts when Santa appears at the END of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and not a second sooner! So said my mother and so sayeth I!

I HATE those peep shoulders outfits. I saw a lady on The Weather Channel wearing one the other day and thought how inappropriate it looked-not to mention just plain ugly.
As for the Rose McGowan issue, I know I've tweeted worse at Trump than she has about the Weinstein mess. I should have been banned a long time ago. I went crazy on him just this morning over his threat to PR.
Also...I went to get Halloween stuff for the Grands last weekend and it wasn't easy because.....yes, it's already Christmas out there. Yuck.
Gosh. You really triggered me today!

Ugh...the Christmas thing. Just. Too. Soon!

I agree wholeheartedly with your stupidity assessments (even though I don't really know who Rose McGowan is). If he-who-shall-not-be-named isn't banned, Rose certainly should not be. I've naively held out hope for decades, but the world is not made for practical and reasonable people. :-(

Ah... the "cold shoulder" sweater... just as stupid as buying pants that are already ripped!

Vera said...

So true, so true...all of it. So many stupid things and idiots out there!

Kwizgiver said...

Ok, I'm wearing a "cold shoulder" shirt (blouse type shirt, not a sweater). The sweater is stupid. But I do like the blouse.

Tweets and tweeting seem idiotic to me - enough said!

I was just in a Denny's last week and happy to report there wasn't one holiday decoration in sight. Commercialism has gone manic in our society. I'm weary of the blurring of holidays.

I hate those open-shoulder styles. They look so uncomfortable.
Pretty soon they'll be advertising for Christmas in July. It kind of ruins the season!

Okay, I love every single stupid thing here! Haha! You made me laugh and decidedly less stabby at the moron-in-chief (who's tweets I will continue to report for there massive inappropriateness!)

Thanks for the chuckles!

Bridget- When they are selling Halloween candy in July- there's something wrong.

I enjoy Halloween and the spooky leading up to it! Then I love Day of the Dead. Then Thanksgiving.
Although Christmas knitting is underway, thats it. I start carols on the way home from Thanksgiving dinner. Then IT begins. Gleefully

I can't believe Twitter banned her, I mean really. I love that other famous women suspended their accounts in support. I am not on Twitter and have no intention of being there, and this might be one of the reasons why. As for that sweater I have to admit I can't stand the whole open shoulder thing. Not in summer clothes and certainly not in winter ones. It is not a good look, it will be a very dated look, like wow remember 2017 when everyone had their shoulders out!

From what I heard, the inappropriate tweet contained someones phone number, a no-no. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
