Things That Shouldn’t Have To Be Said

  1. The first line in an email to a company you want to work with probably should not read “Hello, I write a world famous blog.”
  2. Related: some people are truly clueless.
  3. Also? If you want to work with a company as a blogger, don’t be upset or unprepared to share your stats with them.
  4. An author really needs to learn to accept criticism if they want to sell books. (you’re gonna want to read the comments on that one for full effect)
  5. Working mom, stay at home mom, doesn’t matter. Some people are just bitches, no matter what.
  6. Babies are funny:

I read about that author on Regretsy. What a NUTCASE! And I bet she’s kicking herself now as it works it’s way through the internet.

The sad part is, a bad review is easy (ish) to overcome. What she’s done? Man, she’s just totally wrecked her career.

That review is cracking me up. It started out great from the first “I’ll just keep my five star and four star reviews, thanks” and just got better. Wow, people are nuts!

Olivia thinks that video is hilarious.

Jackson was rather unsure about that video himself. He kept shaking his head and then looking at me with this worried look. I don’t know what he thought was going on, but he wasn’t really a fan.

The daycare thing is annoying. I was at a baby shower once where someone asked me what I did for a living, and was then SURPRISED when I said I worked and sent my kid to daycare. Apparently anything other than “I’m a stay at home Mom, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!” was the wrong answer. (Not that there’s anything wrong with being a SAHM. Just, seriously, women, live and let live).

Someone actually told me, to my face, “well, I just love my kids too much to work.” Uh, thanks lady for insinuating that I don’t.
And yes, I don’t have a problem with SAHMs. In a perfect world, I myself would be one. But crap like that? That’s where we get into this whole mothers tearing mothers down.

“Hello, I write a world famous blog”? Rilly? Oh my.

Ginger April 1, 2011 at 4:18 pm

Yes, these are real words a blogger wrote in an email to my company. Who ARE these people and how do they not know how they come off?

That review is cracking me up. Ridiculous.

Also, I cannot even begin to tell you how many people sent me the link to that video. I think it was at least 50.

I just fell down the review rabbit hole, Ginger, so thanks for that. I went to see what the fuss was about, and then I just couldn’t stop reading. People amaze me…and not always in a good way…

But the babies talking? HILARIOUS 🙂
