D-BAD aka DON’T BE A DOUCHE. Each week I get to call out someone/ someplace or something for being a total DOUCHEBAG. Its when I get to vent and take out my frustration on whatever makes me nuts each week, are you in? Feel free to share your D-BAD’S anytime!
Dear Noisy Cell Talking Lady:
Just when I thought my week might be lacking in D-BAD inspiration, I ran into you in the store today. The conversation you were having on your cellphone appeared to be riveting. Not that I was eavesdropping, we merely entered the shoe department to your verbal assault. I’m sure whoever you were talking about would love to know your thoughts and opinions on their new relationship and be thrilled that you let me, my 7 year old and half the store know that they “hadn’t had sex yet.” Awesome. I was actually dying to know… and so was my 7 year old frankly.
It was great to bump into you a second time in the lingerie department while I was searching the discount bin for bargain dainties. I was riveted to hear your thoughts on the state of yet another poor couple’s relationship as you bellowed across the racks “Why don’t they get a divorce? I mean, gaaawd, why doesn’t he just break it off?” Because my dear heart, whether he does or does not initiate a divorce with someone is one thousand percent (and that’s not even real math) none of your business or mine or (again) my 7 year old’s or for that matter the old lady shopping for a girdle. None of us want to know. But we didn’t have the choice. You didn’t even give us a choice.
I’m all for talking on the phone while shopping. Its a lonely business and a ripe opportunity for multi-tasking. But please, for the love of all things good and holy, don’t be a douche and shut the f%$k up. Especially if that’s when you feel the need to play the role of Relationship Judgy Judgerson. The rest of us are not living some Real Housewives of Somewhere life and simply don’t want to know!
