Talk About It Tuesday – Sexist Laundry Instructions and Stalkers

It’s Tuesday!  That means getting the nitty-gritty on all the fruitious loopious people in the world.  Last week we chatted about Black Madams and Tobacco.  Yep. If you’re looking to get your butt pumped up to give it that “b-donk-a-donk” look, the Philly Butt Pumping Madam is locked up.  Sorry!

Today we’re talking about potentially offensive laundry instructions inside men’s trousers. Not sure what town this is in but an editor for Daily Media found the tag inside her boyfriend’s pants.  Below the actual wash instructions, the tag reads, “Or give it to your woman, it’s her job.”  Check the article out.  What do you think? See, I have this thing about people telling me what to do, so after reading that tag I would not have washed them.  Oh, who am I kidding, I don’t read laundry instructions!

In Washington State, a woman planned her wedding with the man of her dreams! The only problem is he didn’t know! Yep.  A 64-year-old woman had her dress and ring picked out for her big day.  Only, the husband to be didn’t find out until a court employee called him about his wedding.  The guy also received a phone call from a jewelry store.  Now, I know all is far in love and ice cream, but you got to give a guy a clue, right?

In Maryland, a 3-year-old girl was essentially abandoned at a Chuck E. Cheese’s because everybody in the party thought someone else had the kid! The kid was not discovered missing until local media aired a picture of the girl.  I read the comments after the article on this one. Some people seem to think it was an honest mistake.  Still, I have been at places with large groups of family and my children.  I am not leaving until I know specifically who has my kid. Do you have kids? Nieces or nephews?  What’s your stance on kids being left behind?

In Boynton Beach, FL a woman was attacked while trying to get her mail.   It is so important to make sure your car is parked before you try to exit said vehicle.   If not, there is a possibility of the car attacking you without any provocation.  Put it in park!  It is kind of like that movie with Jan Michael Vincent where the car totally attacks people (it was possessed by Indians or something) or Christine!  Ok, maybe not… I am reaching.

Hey, if you have a crazy story you’d like to share or see here on Talk About It Tuesday, drop me a line.  Thanks for joining me for crazy antics in the news… see you next Tuesday! :D

  1. That wedding one is . . . wow.

    Also? I’m with you on the Chuck E. Cheese piece. No way am I accepting “oh, someone’s got ‘im!” for any of the kids I love. Eeeh.

  2. Oh I read about the kid being left behind in fact there have been several and my advice to the mom that has 9 kids, you should have been fixed a long time ago. I know as a mom, that we tend to get sidetracked and frazzled at times, but we live in a world with a lot of sick people that would pray on a 3 yr old in Chuck E Cheese. At least learn to count! Please…

  3. I think Christina has the answer here… one look at that tag and they’d be forgetting the 3-year old at McDonald’s because she’s trying to get the car to attack him for not recognizing how wonderful it was that she married him in the first place…

    I know where my 33 year old kid is. I cannot IMAGINE not knowing where my 3 year old is. People ought to have to pass a test to have children. And what a nice family story that kid will have “hey, do you remember the day mom forgot you?”

  5. I’m inclinded to believe the tag is a one-of-a-kind joke from a clever prankster.

  6. Ridiculous! I know where my kid is and who has her at all times. That is careless parenting. Other than that brief rant, I loved the post. Made me laugh, and I needed that!

  7. LOL…love the wedding planner story..too funny. The only downside is she would’ve gotten married and been doing his laundry and found that darn tag with washing instructions. The honeymoon would surely have been over by then.

    Great topics today Darlene!
