Especially the women who freak out if they don't have those toilet seat covers in the restrooms. I once overheard a lady complain to her friend in the next stall about having to hover because there were no toilet seat covers. And then when she came out of the stall, she didn't wash her hands! SMH, what goes through these peoples' minds??

When my friend sound out she was pregnant, I was one of the first people she called. She was really excited, so while she was waiting for her first doctor's appointment, we did an online due date calculator. Apparently that's all it took, because I've been getting samples of and coupons for baby stuff ever since. And that was five years ago, and I still get stuff. You think they would have at least figured out by now that the kid is no longer a baby and really doesn't need formula or diapers.

I once got an influx of free samples of all things baby as well as tons of emails that were baby related and magazines. Turned out my grandmother who had been on my case non-stop about having a child signed me up for all of it. She thought that since I didn't want a child getting all that free baby stuff would change my mind and make me want a kid. Grandmother logic!

On the subject of washing hands: I am APPALLED at the number of women who don't wash their hands after using a public restroom! I actually have to clamp my hand over my own mouth to keep from berating them for being so damned nasty!

In response to a confession. My mother also refuses to wash her hands prior to cooking, etc. Now I realize why I was sick so much a a kid.

I don't have kids. Somehow, I got on a mailing list and got free samples of infant formula. What is the best thing to do with it? I want it to go to someone who can use it and who needs it.

In response to a confession. His dad, Stormy, is my sister in law. She wants him to have the My Little Pony too. She even said maybe she would buy him one and just not tell my BIL. I told her I'd help her hide it from him if she wanted because to me, it's ridiculous that any kid should have to be boxed into any one gender toy. When I was 4 or 5, I had GI Joe action figures, all the Transformers, and HeMan figurines and an Erector set and I turned out just fine. My parents probably just didn't make the connection that playing with certain toys would either make you gay or turn you into the opposite gender. People these days are so dumb about that stuff.

In response to a confession. DH's cousin doesn't allow his boys to walk down the girl toy isle in stores. They get in trouble if they do. They were appalled that DS played with a doll house at my Aunt's everytime we visited. He loved it and also carried around a baby and took care of it. People raise boys to be un-nurturing and scold them if they have any affection towards having emotion for dolls and parenting them then wonder why some men grow up to be distant un-emotional asses towards their children and spouses.

In response to a confession. Poor kid, having to grow up with a homophobic, closed minded father.
