    Love At First Sight...

    In the mid 1990s I had a roommate who kept hopping from one short-lived fling to the next, on an almost monthly basis. She suffered heartache after heartache. When I told her she was jumping into all these flings too fast and getting emotionally attached too quickly, she said, "I...

    Actually My Friend Did But It's Still Funny

    One day ,back in seventh grade, my friend and I were in our respective study hall rooms: mine with the Social Studies teacher on our academic team, and my friend with the English teacher. One kid got a pass from my study hall teacher to go to my friend's teacher and when we...

    Ignorant *****...

    Ok. So I worked at an animal hospital and my boss was prejudiced...not that he'd ever admit it. One day, he illustrated just how much of an ignoramous he was and I'm going to share this moment with you today. ;)    It was around Martin Luther King Jr. day and, because...

    The newest member of the team is a young, very "pretty" guy in his mid 20’s. He seems some what Innocent and hasn’t learned to hang with the big boys yet. We were talking about ebay and his baseball card collection and he said he was going to sell it. I...

    Unfathomable Sexism

    I hear a lot about how men are "Ignorant, greedy, dirty" and any other nasty (that one too) adjective in the book. Why? It's unfathomable how everyone is judged upon how they were born. Is it how someone of African descent feels when the 'N' word is used against them? They were...

    A Vegetarian Duck.

    A stupid yet funny thing I heard at my mom's work: Co-workers: Chicken is healthy food. If you remove the skin, it's not much fat at all. Duck on the other hand is fat. Stupid co-worker: Duck? Duck's not fat, it's vegetarian!

    Familial Ignorance

    My sister, I'll be the first to admit, listens to shoddy music. If the prepubescent lead singer screams about the loss of the love of his life, or of another prepubescent girl who did him wrong, my sister's ears become opposite-polarity magnets. Granted, she's 17 and confused...

    And the Man Has a Phd....

    Today, one of the classes for my graduate program met for the first time. About 2/3 of the way through the 3 hour lecture, the professor said "What if we was..." I don't remember the rest of the sentence, but that was plenty. Later, he used the phrase "more deeper...

    *Read an ignorant statement* Just found an

    experience called "I Hate Fat People". I am shocked... I consider myself to be fat. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I strongly believe that people's beliefs are coloured by experiences and emotions. Only the person with the experience knows the full extent of how it...

     As I was walking down the hall at school, "All white people are racist, man, all of them are out to get us."  Nobody said anything either. I swear if I had said the same thing about any other race I would have been stoned to death. Egh. There's racists...

    Yep...People Really Think Like This

    I used to know a young woman who was very conservative in her views; political, religious, etc. Well, one day we got into it over womens' rights... Her: "Well, women are supposed to serve men." Me: "Really? Says who?" Her: "The Bible"   W...

    Hahaha. So, I'm re-adding experiences

    because my main account got suspended, and what do I find?(In this very group, the post right before this one.) Someone talking **** about me. The funny thing is, that person only dislikes me because I've made her look foolish on multiple occasions. LMAO!

    Breathtakingly Ignorant

    My Grandmother has always blown me away with her ignorance. She is very close minded. Before anyone says "That's just old age." my Grandmother is in her 60's. I was in her car when we got into a major argument. I was talking about one of my friends when I mentioned that she was a...
