I was listening to Charli Delaney on the radio this morning and she was talking about this list.
So naturally I googled it and found the list on frisky.com.
This list is shamelessly copy and pasted from that site.
There are some silly childish behaviours that some woman are still doing well into their 30′s – and beyond in some cases.
here is the list:
- Buying clothes from the junior section.
- Forgetting her parents’ birthdays.
- Making out with her BFFs at bars for attention.
- Making out with her boyfriend at bars for attention.
- Filling her bed with stuffed animals (really, even one is too many).
- Carrying a torch for anyone she hasn’t seen in the last five years.
- Rebelling against her parents for the sake of rebelling against her parents.
- Declaring an entire gender “all jerks.”
- Holding a grudge against anyone who wronged her in high school.
- Skipping regular gyno exams.
- Going to bed without washing and moisturizing her face.
- Being “that person” who had a bit too much to drink at the office party.
- Crushing on Justin Bieber.
- Thinking she’s got it all figured out.
- Calling her father “daddy.”
- Engaging in sibling rivalry.
- Trying to get by on her looks.
- Living paycheck to paycheck.
- Expecting a man/knight in shining armor to swoop in and save her.
- Aimlessly jumping from job to job.
- Using MySpace to pick up guys.
- Expecting a man to do all the wooing.
- Wishing she had someone else’s life.
- Expecting everyone to drop everything because it’s her birthday …
- … or because her “boyfriend” of two weeks dumped her.
- Measuring her self-worth by a number on the scale.
- Being cheap.
- Quitting a job without having a new one lined up first (especially in this economy!).
- Blaming her mother for all her issues.
- Romanticizing her 20s.
I would like to add more names to the list of people not to crush on at number 13. I think if you are “crushing” on anyone after the age of 30, you should grow up. This includes anyone from twilight. “crushing” is a word best left in the teen years. You may have a healthy appreciation for a celebrity, even only aesthetically – but no crushing.
Number 8 is a personal pet hate of mine. Declaring all men to be jerks or idiots is stupid and sexist and childish. There are no boy germs and if you married him then he’s your problem – don’t blame the whole male species for your husband’s failings. I have an awsome husband and guess what? he’s male! and so is my son so stop perpetuating this myth that all men are losers and get the hell over it! I don’t want to live in a world where the constant oppression of males is ok. It’s not feminist either. It’s wrong and just as stupid as racism.
number 29, blaming your mother for your issues – infact stop blaming your parents full stop. All parents (including you) will manage to &%$# up their kids. It’s what happens. But by 30 you should have dealt with it and moved on. You are now a grown up and responsible for your own issues. If you haven’t dealt with residual baggage from childhood then it is your own fault and not your parents.
I understand that for some people, living paycheck to paycheck is not a choice. I think that should be changed to “being irresponsible with money”. I remember paying for my boozy weekends but not the power bill – these days I have a colour coded budget and am saving for a house.
I could go on – I have something to say about most of the list. But basically it should be the new bible! Except for the use of the word BFF – that needs to go too.
What would you add to the list? What are your thoughts?
Or do you disagree with everything and believe that you should still be able to hate all men and cuddle your collection of beanie babies while staring at a picture of the ever so dreamy Edward?
