My sister isn't big on having kids, she's 33.

This woman I work with was with a guy for a few years that didn't want them.  She's not with him now and has a new guy, he's in his early thirties...  seems like she has her claws in deep already so I'm sure It Won't Be Long now.

It's so funny how your perception changes as you age, or at least mine did.  When I was 18 I thought I would have kids by 25.  At 25 I thought I would have kids by the time I'm 30.  That's 5 months away and there is no way.  Maybe by 40 or maybe not at all?  I am just grateful that my husband is on the same page as me.  heart

When I was in high school I hardly dated. I was much too busy with work and school, plus I thought most of the guys were immature. Good friends, but immature. A year after high school I met my husband. Even after living with him for a few years, we thought "Oh, we'll get married later. Its just a piece of paper. As long as we love each other." Here I am a few years later, married. Who knows what will happen in the next few years maybe I will have kids or not. I'm not in a rush. After working at McDonald's as a teenager left a bad taste in my mouth about a lot of kids. People think they are little angels, I got news for them. A pet peeve of mine is people letting kids run a muck and then blame someone else. ahdn_paul_01

Also, when people purposely drown their kids in clothes way too big. My dad and his wife used to do that to my sister and I hated it. At two weeks old, they were dressing her in clothes that were 3-6 months. Putting her in clothes that actually fit made them nervous. 

My parents did that to me. That way I could still wear those clothes the next year and after that my little sister would be big enough to wear them. My mom always bought me very expensive clothes though, so I can see why she wanted them to be worn a few years in a row. That's another thing that seems so awesome and fun to me, buying clothes for your baby. Ohmygod the things they sell nowadays, so cute!

Also, sometimes you can't help getting more children than you originally wanted. My mom was shocked when she found out she was expecting twins after me. And that's just twins. Just think about octomommy!

One of my pet peeves is the "no partner = cat lady" stereotype, although my aunt never married and she hasn't had a boyfriend for a long time, and she's always had cats...

My sister calls me the cat lady 'cause she says I'll never marry anyone. I should be offended really, now I think about it... And, yes, I hate that too. And also when someone gets to a certain age and it's like ''oh, she's not married. Is she gay?'' I don't know if anyone else has ever heard that but I have, a lot. So insulting.

Yeah that's a stupid insult. Well, not an insult, but you get what I mean. There are probably tons of reasons why people don't get married

My sister gets the lesbian thing a lot, because she has very short hair and often wears hoodies with shirts and not exactly the most femine shoes. Stupid thing is we're very close and I don't look 3 years older. In fact, I often hear she looks older than me. So when we're somewhere and we poke each other or something, people often assume we're a lesbian couple. GREAT.

^ Don't understand why people are so judgemental. I never make my mind up on someone without getting to know them properly, and definitely not just at a glance.

People can be assholes.  I was called a lesbian for many years, and I'm straight as a board.  I'm totally supportive of gay rights, but that shouldn't give people the invitation to judge you.  It's because I'm not "girly".  I have tattoos and I'm from a small town and tend to swear like a sailer sometimes, I say "dude", I don't wear pink...  whatever, that's just me!  a-hard-days-night-john-1

I don't wear pink either, a lot of girls don't. Is that a reason to be so offensive? I don't think so.

I am girly. I've got long hair, like make up and fashion and all but they only called me that because I was walking next to my sister who supposedly looks like a lesbian. Like, really? Ever heard of brains, people?

I hate it when people judge based on looks anyway.

Again, people who let the phone ring and ring. I do not live in a castle, I am never more than 20 steps away from my phone. If I haven't answered by the fourth ring, I AM NOT ANSWERING IT!! HANG THE &%$@ UP!! The only reason I would have for answering the phone after more than ten rings is to scream in the ear of whoever insists on calling me! And I'm not doing that. I'm not answering: Deal with it.

What else do I hate? Any and all flying insects. Wipe 'em all off the planet. Except maybe dragonflies and butterflies, if those are even insects.

I detest mobile phones. My phone is such a piece of crap that unless you press the right button, which is the smallest one on the screen nearest the bigger decline one, or swish the screen in the right place it turns any incoming calls off. If seems like to get anywhere on it you have to go thru 30,000 menus and everything is kept in a daft place. The only thing its good for is its torch and as a back-up music player.

I hate folks who insist on having a one-sided phone call right in front of you for any period of time, go elsewhere and conduct it, i dont want to hear you saying yes, right and all other stuff that makes no sense. And no you dont have to answer the damn thing immediately right in the middle of a conversation and start talking to them for ages - have some bloody manners and either ignore the call or tell them youre busy. All supposed funny ringtones should be banned - they are not funny. And no i dont want to see an email, app, photo, hear a song or whatever.

And folks who send 30 texts to arrange anything or say anything remotely important. If anything has to be arranged phone and get to the point instantly otherwise dont bleeding bother.

Grrr, I hate when Irish people use American expressions, it grates me but the worst one is calling their Mam "Mom".. oh sweet Jesus don't get me started. IT'S NOT MOM!!! THIS IS IRELAND NOT AMERICA FOR CHRIST SAKE!!! I have no problem with Americans/other nationalities saying "Mom" but if it's normal everyday Irish folk...I just...no. You say "Mam, Ma or Mum" in Ireland not "Mom". The phrase "Mam" comes from the Irish word for "Mother, Mathair or Mam (pronounced wam) which is pronounced in  English as Ma'am there is an expression in Irish:

"Is fearr Gaeilge briste na Bearla cliste"- "It's better to speak broken Irish then fluent English"

 And thanks to American television  over here we now have American-accented 4/5 years old running around the place with their "Moms, pacifiers, soda and soccer" and Irish expressions are being lost for the next generation a-hard-days-night-paul-10 I obviously have no problems with Americans saying it but Irish people *shudders*

And that's my daily complaining done

You should be happy there's even a "bearable" accent. Some people here are trying so hard to speak English. It's really intolerable you can barely understand them, I don't have anything against accents but their grammar is really broken. What's worse is that they code-switch between the local language and English, the local language is slowly dying out.

I hate it when people here try to speak with a more western accent. Because in Holland there's a huuuuge different between accents if you look at north, south, east and west. Our accent is often made out to be ''a farmer's accent'', because our o's and e's are so overdone and we ''swallow half of the words'' and our R is different. In the west they speak more..British like. The R is the same and their accent is just so different and sounds more posh or so.

I think I could derail this thread.  The clue is in my first post here way back when.

Most of Britain's accent's are non-rhotic, meaning the rhotic consonant is not pronounced, meaning "r" is not pronounced unless followed by a vowel. I don't know if most people would notice that but... I also hate it when people can't be asked to improve one's speech. Inter-racial relationships are prevalent here, there's nothing wrong with that (imo) but I find it hilarious when they talk to each other.
