    What's Your Excuse ?

    Some of the best relationship advice you can get is to stop making excuses. To the one making the excuse, it makes perfect sense to offer an explanation for not being responsible. To the one listening to the excuse, it sounds like the same old story with a new set of words...

    Ugh.

    I don't care if you think they're "cute." I don't care if they're comfortable. Uggs will always look like lumps of lamb some Chinese kid sewed up. It's just true.

    You Are Not Excused

    I don’t like meanness, nastiness and hate, some were brought up knowing nothing else, yet that only explains their behaviour, it does not in any way excuse it. I have encountered all of these from people in my life, and I have heard, but you know how I was brought up. Or...

    I Am Tired of Excuses

    I don't believe is death penalty, but sometimes there is no excuse for what has happened and no explanation can undone the brutal result. Maybe a life time imprisonment!
