Friday Flip Offs

Posted on August 27th, 2010 by Jean

Friday Flip Offs is the brainchild of my friend, Kludgy Mom. It’s my pleasure to take part this week.
 
To my husband, flip off! I can no longer store the cocktail glasses you are intent on collecting from casinos. Our cabinets overfloweth. Did we really need the complete set of Fat Tire glasses? Or the Dos Equis ones? We don’t even drink those beers!
 
To my housekeeper, flip off! That might seem insensitive, especially since you are recovering from a heart attack, but why can’t you return my calls? I am calling to see how you are doing, not to lament over my filthy house. Are you feeling better? Put your feet up. (Call me.)
 
To the lady in line behind me yesterday at The Cupcakery, flip off! I wanted to try that orange julius variety, but not after you told everyone (ok, maybe just your friend) how disgusting the flavor was, and how it didn’t sit right with you. I couldn’t bring myself to order it with you eavesdropping behind me.
 
To the sudden burst of wind and rain in Vegas yesterday, flip off! My gawd, couldn’t you see I just had my hair done? You tousled it every which way and back. Not to mention the show you forced me to give as you got all up in my wrap-around dress. Geez Louise, you suck.
 
• Who or what are you flipping off today?

  1. I know the feeling. Before we were married my husband collected mugs and shot glasses. We don’t have half of them anymore! Happy Friday!

    Hi Danielle! Happy Friday, flip offs and all!
    Let me know if the comment I left on your page was eaten. Although I was distracted by those darling baby feet, I did comment. 🙂
    I’m wondering where to hide half of these glasses. Cannot blame you for getting rid of yours.

  2. LOL! With Carl, it’s mugs. A crapload of them, from everywhere. Every now and then, I sneak a few out and into a box of stuff for donation. Anyone who shops at any of the Salvation Army stores in the greater Chicagoland area has probably seen a goofy coffee mug that was once in my kitchen cupboards.

    BTW–I LOVE the idea of Friday Flip Offs! Would it be okay to steal it, um, join in on the fun?

  3. Just a list of the people/things I want to “flip off” would eat up all you’re bandwidth, so I’ll try to restrain myself.

    Ahem, first, to my hubby as well, Flip Off! Do we HAVE to have a stinkin’ party EVERY night of the week?

    Flip Off! to all my lovely neighbors who like to mow their lawns at 6:30 a.m. WTH people?!

    To the start of the new school year down the street and return of Mommy Madness in the morning – Flip Off I say!! Someone is gonna get hurt by your rocket speeds and one-handed-coffee-cup driving. Puh-leez! Slow down for chrissakes!

    Whew! Thanks Jean! I feel a lot better 🙂

  7. Do you feel better? It is nice to let the steam off every now and again. Now that you have done it, fresh start, fresh perspective. Life is short,try to spend as much of it as you can smiling.

  12. Haha Jean you always make me smile with your cute and clever posts. I’d like to flip off our office manager who incidently works at another office upstate and sends the whole office her negative Debbie Downer emails on a daily basis.

    BMW drivers…. ( you drive one right ? ) SORRY.
    Well I suppose the thing is roundabouts, that I know you don’t have in the States, but if you use a roundabout, you have to indicate to come off of it….. well maybe it is British BMW drivers who seem to have lost the indicator function, which can be a tad dangerous .

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    LOL! No, Gareth, I don’t own one. I drive a Dodge Magnum with a hemi!! I’ll be sure to signal if I ever encounter a roundabout. 🙂 I think I’ve seen 2 here in the states. One was in Florida, and the other in Maine.
