Things I Don't Want To Hear...

"I know this is a chain letter but please read on..."

"Mom, we accidentally broke something downstairs..."

"It's time for your pap smear..."

"Did you cut your hair?"
(a nice way of someone not complimenting you on it)

"But Mom, it wasn't my fault!"

"The writer's strike sees no end in sight..."

"Oh sorry, the sale ended yesterday."

"Hi, this is the school calling..."
(ugh - never, never a good thing out of this call)

"We're out of toilet paper!!!!"

"George Clooney is dating (insert model name here)..."

"Oh, it looks like we have these shoes in every size BUT yours."

"Is that what you're going to wear?"

"I have to pee!"
(3 mins into a 2 hour car ride)

"But I didn't MEAN for it to happen...."
(yeah, but it did)

"Hi, I'm calling from ABC Company, would you be interested in purchasing..."
(no! and especially not at dinner time!)

"But Moooooommm, I'm not tattle-taling!"

"You need a complete overhaul."
(can be referred to automobile or self!)

Stay tuned for the next list..."Things I love to hear!"

Add "I forgot..." (uttered by children and men alike) and this list is complete!

I can't wait to read your next list!

I have a fun one for those annoying calls from solicitors. Next time one calls simply say, "If you will give me your personal HOME phone number I shall return your call while you are having your dinner, watching your favorite tv show or sharing a special family moment:)" Works everytime:-)

What NOT to be thankful for?

Oh Joy! How funny! I agree with you exactly! One of my new favorite things I don't want to hear is;

"Now that you are over the age of 50, you need to schedule a "colonoscopy", bone density test, etc.......
