    Movements! The Twitter gangs of over sensitive brats who will attack anyone who doesn't agree with them, Movements like the million mom's or whatever that are offended by n1pples, curse words and sex.

    Also those who persecute someone, ruin their lives or careers based on someone else's tweet.

    Is that what that is? I think there may be a few of the million moms here!🤣

    Parents avoiding any conversation about puberty, menstruation, bodily changes, sex, etc, with their children until years too late.

    I know this still happens, and that's what I'm referring to.

    But I hope it happens less than in my day (Gen X). Seriously had to explain all this stuff to 80% of my female friends when we were in middle school, and let my mom fill in the gaps because all of their moms were horrified to even mention childbirth or using pads. Ridiculous.

    This happened to me. I had my period at 15.5 and my mom still hadn’t had a talk with me about it. What’s worse is that she pulled me out of the health class that goes over these topics in 5th grade and 7th grade. It was so embarrassing.

    I hate this for you. So common, even now. I don't think we had in-depth health classes over these topics until 8th grade, when a lot of people (disturbingly) were sexually active and a couple of girls WERE PREGNANT already...

    That’s scary. I remember in middle school a few 12 year olds were sexually active then. My Mom just didn’t want me to know anything. She is extremely old fashioned.....

    People going to the shops in there PJ's it is so wrong recently even in a housecoat and slippers

    I feel like this could be a weakness for me, maybe idk...

    just wear your cowboy hat with the robe....

    I'm going to make it my my pp 😂...
    People that smoke inside with kids there. Absolutely no cares about it whatsoever. It’s bad enough to do it inside anyway but doing it around kids is just extremely selfish imo.

    When my grandmother who smoked for many years, passed away from cancer years back...

    I went up to speak at her funeral and joked about how all her grandkids now have asthma...

    😂... We're that kind of family

    and those who knew your family obviously were cool with the joke. my own grandfather smoked like a chimney and my grandmother died from emphysema. well...nobody made the connection way back then.

    Oh man wow, I'm sorry to hear that... That doesn't sound like anything anyone would joke with him about...

    For us it was all good humor tho, sometimes the best thing you can do is make fun of the circumstance...

    i understand the humor element for sure. my husband,kids , and i joke like this all the time :D
    this was the early 70's though - so there's that!

    Another from the Gen X files: Raising up females to believe they can't do repairs of any sort and not teaching them the several tricks to open jars that are stuck. I still see it. Women at the gas station who don't know how to put air in their tires or change their air filter. Imma show you. It takes 5 minutes.

    I theoretically know how to change a tire, oil, put air in the tires but I’ve never actually had to do it. I’m torn between thinking it’s learned helplessness or that delegating is an equally important skill.

    Changing the tire can be difficult if the person who put the tire on used air tools to tighten the lug nuts. Get a can of Liquid Wrench and a cheat bar to improve your chances and keep them in your trunk with your other tools. Blast stubborn lug nuts with liquid wrench, give it a few minutes, insert cheat bar into one of the ends of the lug wrench for leverage, and stomp the cheat bar. If this fails, call AAA. Also keep a crowbar on hand. It's good for leverage and it's good as a creep deterrent.

    The air: super easy. unscrew the valve stem caps, put your pressure gauge on there and see current pressure/how much air you need. Put the coins/credit card in the air machine and pump until it hits that pressure. Modern machines can be digitally set to the pressure you choose. Inside the driver's side door of your car it probably states the ideal air pressure or you can find it on the side wall of the tires. Machines are set to default at 32 psi. put back valve stem caps before driving away.

    Changing oil: I still have a hangup about this. I have an irrational fear that the car is going to fall and crush me. Trying to get past that.

    I have a credit card.

    A credit card you say? Let's go empty that sucker 😃

    I’ve maxed it out already.....

    But I have a couple of checks left in my checkbook!

    Easy Fix

    Get yourself an aerosol can of room freshener and spray your way through the nicotine gauntlet.

    .... they’ll get the message.

    What kind of bars were you going to??

    ...... and can I have the address?

    It wouldn't matter, you've got to have the bait to catch the fish, and desperate guys usually don't have it. And don't forget to...

    See what you made me go do? I was just trying to be a hoot like you. Now I feel :'( for joking about a serious topic and perpetuating the normalization of misandry.

    Wait.

    It’s a serious topic?

    Who Knew ??

    Oh this would irk me...

    What really drives me nuts are all the parents that stand right in front of the classroom door so they can watch their kid until the door closes... Omg stop coddling your kid and move out of the way so my kid can get through the freaking door 🙄...

    And on another note... It really irks me when I'm running and I come across someone smoking outside on the sidewalk... All this effort and fresh air interrupted by a cloud of tobacco 🙄

    How is anal sex normal behavior? Im lost on how you even thought of writing that. No sexual behavior are normal. Laughing out loud

    I never understood the logic of people finding *kitten* sexually attractive... like 💩stools come out of there. Is it normal that people are ok with sticking their thing where *kitten* comes out of? IDK🤮🙂

    I guess you'd have to ask the millions of people who've been into it over the last 4,000 years.

    Omg I hate this too, my daughter is tiny for 4 and the parents just stand in the way as she squeezes through 🙈

    You know what else irks me for that matter?

    Pedestrians that stand right at the edge of the curb when waiting for the cross signal 🙄, and double if they have a stroller sticking half-way out in the street 🙄🙄...

    It's like, you don't have to be standing right on the edge so you can cross the very microsecond the cross signal appears... Oh I'm getting worked up just thinking about it 🔥... 😂

    I know why they like it I just can’t understand how they can look past that fact and be ok.
