  • I judge DH for knowing that he wont be open minded when the time comes for us to buy our forever home. I have no desire to live in the area where he grew up, yet for whatever reason he does not seem to grasp the concept that there are other just as good, if not better areas that could work for our family.

    I judge myself for already mentally preparing myself for this fight, which will be a doosey, but not for another year.

  • I judge my mom over "fat anger". My friends and I call it that, we all have very overweight moms. My mom recently found out she's prediabetic and every time I see her she's eating something terrible for her and she blames it on us: "We NEVER eat this type of stuff, I just bought it because you guys are here." I also judge her pinterest. She'll pin a bunch of low-carb recipes and then a series of brownies and enchilada casseroles.
  • I judge my coworkers for making me wait for 25 mins for a conference call to start. WTF are you guys doing at the office? Don't you know I have to poop?! (apologies for the TMI)

    I also judge myself (again) for getting sucked in to the WM vs SAHM post yesterday. I didn't contribute, but found it interesting in various ways.

  • I'm judging myself for not losing all of the baby weight before the end of my maternity leave.  The advantage to being sick for the entire pregnancy was that I didn't gain nearly as much weight as last time, and I lost all but 12 lbs in the first week.  And then everything stopped because we were moving and I ate a ton of crappy takeout.  And I refuse to buy any more new clothes, so I've got the same couple of dresses and one pair of pants on rotation. It's totally my own fault.  I could have lost the weight.  I just didn't try.  Hence the judgment.

    I'm judging the previous owners of my new house.  They were disgusting.  The house was filthy.  Bugs everywhere.  Kitchen cabinets, microwave, lights and fixtures are covered in grease and dirt.  Cabinets full of rodent droppings.  Outside, they let the beautiful landscaping get all overgrown.  The yard is all poison ivy.  They didn't close the pool correctly, so the mechanical system is shot. It's a beautiful house, and they wrecked it.  And they lied about everything.  It's going to take a lot of work to get it right.

     


  • I am full of judginess today.

    I judge my DH for accusing me of being controlling and saying "if we have a second child you will have to let go a little." Wanting to know at roughly what times my daughter ate and napped so I can plan our evenings together isn't micromanaging.

    I judge my friend for posting on FB many times about how much she wants to return to her 2 hours a day, 6 days a week gym routine after w week in the Caribbean. Sorry, lady, I love you but I don't really believe you missed the gym and clean eating THAT much.

    Finally, I judge my old classmate who took out piles of loans to get a Masters in a field he doesn't work in years ago and is now complaining constantly about the need for "student loan relief" even though he has traveled internationally at least twice a year since then. Pay your bills and limit the pricey vacays! There is a need for loan reform but not for you, douchecanoe.

  • I judge people who get their feelings hurt by what strangers write on the internet, and who expect that their posts will only get supportive responses, especially when they post something controversial (my BF and I want a baby, I'm 19, I live at home, I don't work-isn't this a great idea?).

    I judge people who use questionable child care when they *know* there are issues.  I can't imagine any reason why you would continue to send your infant to an unlicensed daycare that has 3-5 infants and toddlers PLUS 3 older children, depending on the day, being looked after by one person, that refuses to tell you what your baby ate, that only goes through a few diapers a day (and LO consistently has a wet diaper and diaper rash at pickup)....  I get that childcare is expensive-we pay a ridiculous amount to our DC.  But if it's a cost issue, I would cut any and every expense to send my baby to the very best care I could.  I can't imagine any other expense that's more important that your child's care. And if it's not a cost issue, WTF are you sending your baby to a place that isn't caring for her properly?

    I judge myself for caring about the stupid scrape on the side of my car.  The car is perfectly functional.  I know fixing it isn't a good use of money.  But it still bothers me.  Grrrrr.

    Thank you!  We keep uncovering crazy things - stuff that would never come up in an inspection.  For example, we wanted to swap out the ceiling fans.  DH got up there and removed the old fans, and it turns out that the ceiling fans weren't ATTACHED TO ANYTHING.  They were just resting on the sheet rock in the ceiling.  Who the F thought that was a good idea??

  • I judge my neighbors who have stopped paying their mortgage since their house will never be worth what they paid for it. She sat their and bragged about it to our group of friends.

    I get people fall on hard times, but this is not the case for them since she just posted on Facebook about how she is going on yet another vacation. Oh, and last year she had a ton of plastic surgery done. I am not judging plastic surgery, I am still judging that she did it when she should be paying her mortgage!!!

    I wanted to punch something. I slept maybe three hours last night, had to send DS2 to daycare even though he is clearly feeling a little under the weather bc I am swamped at a job I have to PAY my mortgage, while this biitch drags down the value of my home and go on a vacation every other month.

  • I judge the yeller moms at DC. There are 2. I don't think I've ever heard either not screaming at their kid. You've been at work all day and are just picking up your kid, don't take the days frustration out on them. Not surprising that DD says both of their kids hit. I really feel bad for those kids.

    Also this new mid drift top fad should be reserved to teens, college age girls, and those who have killer abs. Not women with rolls over their waistline. I just don't get why?

    I don't post often but I need to judge today:

    I judge the former board members of a club my DD is a member of.  Remember the reason the club exists: for the benefit of the kids not to be your personal political ego building.  Because of all the infighting and backstabbing the club will probably not exist anymore.  New board members were elected with the hope of restructuring the club and moving it past the issues that occurred.  Except the backstabbing continues and now the club has no president and vice president and no one who is experienced with the sport is willing to run because they don't want to be raked over the coals.  Someone who was experienced was willing to run but some parents are trying to sabatoge the election and get people to not vote her in.  WTF!  Just take your toys and go away and let people who have the kids in mind take over. 

    Sorry - I judge these people hourly over the past two weeks since this all happened.

    I know two couples who did this. Both under no financial stress, both with wives who don't work and could make decent income if it is a matter of paying the bills, one who did it twice. Twice!! And one couple's credit is already clean. It makes me ragey.

    This is one of my biggest peeves.
    Our house is worth a good 60k less than we paid. Yet I still work and pay our mortgage. So many neighbors have jumped ship and bought bigger homes by letting the homes in our neighborhood slip into foreclosure. Then investors buy them and rent them. The whole street is now mainly rentals. I wish my own moral code would let me step away from our mortgage
  • I hard core judge the smoker who threw their butt out the window of the car this morning.  There are 5 fuckings wildfires in this state right now!  WTF is wrong with people?

    (I hope this is not a UO but I had to vent about it - it seriously makes me see red)

    My DH literally said the exact same thing to me. Frustrating.

    How can this be a UO?  I super judge people who treat the rest of the world as their personal ashtray/trashcan.  GROSS! 


  • I meant to post this last week, but missed the thread, so here goes:

    I judge the mom at the doctor's office with the really sick toddler.  My 15 month old was there because she has an ear infection.  Not contagious, not really all that serious.  But while this other mom was on the phone in the waiting room (very loudly) talking to her boyfriend about how her daughter has a 103 fever and has been puking all night, her 3 year old was all over my daughter.  Trying to touch her and give her kisses and I can't freaking get away from her!  

    I understand that it is hard to keep kids still, especially when the doctor is backed up and you've been waiting for an hour.  My kid wanted to wander around, too.  But my mostly well DD should not be exposed to whatever crud your kid has because you're too busy talking on the phone to control her!  

    My DD didn't get that crud (thankfully), but it still bothers me.

    I judged a mom at daycare that flipped out over a minor thing.  She needs a nanny if she wants to micromanage her daughter's care. 

    I also think there is a benefit in being flexible and easy going with your dcp.  Obviously you want regulations to be met and standards.  But it pays to befriend your dcp and being "that mom" won't get you there.

    Yes

    I'm judging a friends SIL's and this is completely bias based on my friends side of the story.

    SIL1: has a son with serious medical issues and is on welfare. She wants another child and is trying to get pg during conjugal visits with her H. He's in jail for molesting a 6 yo girl. I didn't realize these visits were allowed for that offense.

    SIL2: is pg w/ a sex offenders child. He was 18 (now 23) and molested a 13 yo boy. She is carrying their son and has found txt messages leading her to believe he is cheating on her.

    My house was like this too.  When I looked at it looked clean and had some awful paint colors but that is just a little TLC.  Backyard looked a little overrun but it was January so no big.  Inspection had some minor stuff and the bigger stuff I had them fix. Moved in and it was a total nightmare.  Dirt, grim, carpet that was in pieces on the floor and not tacked down. backyard was their own dumpster.  It was like after the inspection and sale pending they let it go to pot or just stopped cleaning.  It took me weeks to get it cleaned up after work and on weekends to move in.  Now 7 years later I still am unearthing trash in the backyard when I dig.  My neighbors are so happy now as I take care of things and after I moved in told me horror stories about the trash build up and having to call the city due to stuff.  So I totally feel for you.  Try and see if you can get some friends to help you clean on weekend or even watch the kids so you can have it all to yourself.  good luck

    My favs are the criminal defendants when I was a prosecutor which would show up with shirts sporting such gems as "420 it's time" or very clearly gang attire .
    Or when I worked for a domestic violence shelter, per lawyer days, and abuser would show up to their restraining order hearings wearing what are commonly known as "wife beater " tanks
  • I judge my neighbor who drives around the neighborhood in her golf cart with her 9 month old sitting in her lap.  These are city streets, not some gated country club community.  I don't understand why she thinks this is safe when I doubt (hope) she wouldn't do this in a real car.  At least put a helmet on the kid!!

  • I judge my DH for sleeping through the night every night for the past 9 months, no matter how many times I get up or how little sleep I get. I judge him for sleeping so soundly that his snoring keeps me awake the precious amount of time I actually get to try and sleep. And I judge him for sleeping in for an extra couple of hours after DD and I start our day and then getting up and tending to his needs first, like breakfast, shower, newspaper etc....

    I judge myself for never getting anything done during my mat leave and for not being better at all this...
