A List Of 7 Nevers…

Why? Just cause it’s fun.

1) Never put your TV in front of a window: I don’t care how oddly shaped your room is, there has to be a better place for your TV than in front of the window. We don’t want to see all your wires, and you should want to see the sun shine through your window!

2) Never ask a newly or long-time, childless married couple when they are going to start having kids (especially with a wink of the eye or an elbow to the ribs): Its irritating! You don’t know if the couple has been trying to have kids and this is a source of great heartache. You also don’t know if there are personal reasons as to why they have not started yet or ever will. Whatever the case may be, it’s just none of your business!

3) Never yell or get angry with anyone behind a desk: This goes for most places; the bank, fast-food restaurants, customer service (anywhere), receptionists or anywhere else that involves someone standing behind a desk. They are just the messenger! They most likely have no power to make your commands reality. So save yourself some time and ask for a manager, because yelling at the messenger will get you nowhere.

4) Never let your dog poop on a sidewalk and then leave it there: If you want the dog, then pick up after it. There is a reason I don’t own a dog…because I don’t want to pick up after it. I also don’t want to pick up after your dog if you choose to be lazy!

5) Never start giving uninvited advice to a full-term pregnant lady as how to induce labor: The poor pregnant woman has probably heard it all before. Also these conversation always end up being incredibly awkward, especially when had with strangers. Just leave her alone…she’s tired.

6) Never ask a woman if she is pregnant unless you are absolutely certain she is: This should be a no-brainer, but oddly it happens all the time. If she is pregnant it will most likely come up in a conversation. But don’t assume a large belly equals pregnancy. I know a woman who has a big benign tumor in her stomach, which makes her look permanently pregnant. Assume nothing, and save yourself and others the embarrassment.

7) Never ask a new mother if her child is a boy or girl, especially if the child is wearing all blue or all pink: Again this should be a no-brainer. If a child is wearing all pink, guess what? It’s probably a girl. If the child is wearing all blue, you can safely assume he’s a boy. But if the child is not wearing distinctive colors, don’t ask. Let mom bring up the sex on her own in the conversation. New mom’s are sensitive and believe there child is the cutest child in the whole world. Asking her if her new baby girl is a boy will be very upsetting to her.

Consider yourself informed! That’s all for now…until next time!
