Well, today’s edition of Confessional Thursday is a bit… different. Even though I usually write any potential confessions on my notes app, only a select few end up making it to the blog. I try to keep it light and funny even though some days the confessions seem more like rants. But, I’m feeling like a Negative Nancy today so Confessional Thursday is more like Ranting Thursday today.
I Confess… That All Of The Things Below Drive Me Crazy
+ That my husband is apparently allergic to putting the toilet paper roll in the actual toilet paper holder (I love you babe 😉
+ Wrong proportions in beauty/makeup products. Why do they always make the blush, bronzer and highlighter pans the same size?! WHY? Also, why aren’t shampoo bottles bigger than conditioners? Does anyone really use them up at the same time?
+ Getting asked several times a week if I want to “change my life” and “become my own boss” by selling Rodan & Fields, LuLaRoe or Lipsense. Also, someone please explain to me how working for a giant company and earning commissions is being your own boss?
+ Cashiers that throw around my carefully selected produce while scanning.
+ People who open and try on cosmetics at Target/Walmart/CVS/Walgreens. I’ve seen this more and more recently and all all I want to do is yell: THIS ISN’T SEPHORA at them.
+ Retractable dog leashes. Yep. The lovely scar on my leg is courtesy of a retractable dog leash. To clarify, this wasn’t our dog leash, it was some other person’s dog leash. Long story short, while walking Tuna we ran into another dog who was on a retractable leash. The other dog got overly excited and proceeded to run around me while the thin iron cord effectively burned and cut through the skin on my leg. Just search retractable leash accidents on Google.
+ Actually, I’m not done with the above. What is the point of a retractable leash? I don’t understand. The whole point of a leash is to keep your pet under control (for their safety and yours).
+ People who tell me either of the following when they realize I don’t eat meat:
1.Animals are on earth for us to eat them – Insert giant eyeroll here. If any argument about my personal eating habits starts with the bible, I’m out.
2.You are killing plants too – Yep, these spinach leaves and my dog? Exactly the same thing.
+ People who ask me tax questions because I’m a CPA. There are a broad range of occupations for a CPA other than tax preparation people. I do not do individual income tax returns. We have Turbo Tax for that 🙂
