It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Troubles. I’ve said it before, but this should be named “things i’m annoyed / confused / want to complain about”, however I couldn’t figure out how to make any of those into a snappy title, so Tuesday Troubles it is. And yes, I do realize that these aren’t true “troubles”. I know that many of these for sure could be defined as first world problems!
~I’ve always been annoyed with this, but it’s gotten worse lately. I’m talking about when a company / website / your work, whatever, asks you to make a password, so you make one and then it tells you nope, that’s not going to work because it needs to be eight characters and you need both upper case and lower case letters, numbers and non-alphanumeric characters. You know what would have been easier? Letting me know that these were the requirements in the first place.
~In one of my dumber questions, I would like to know what shoes you pair with shorts for your boys. We usually do flip-flops, but I have a feeling those aren’t playground approved and won’t work for school. And I don’t know what it is, but I’m not feeling sneakers and socks with shorts. Maybe I just need to find the “right” sneakers? I don’t know. Are crocs my only option? Am I over thinking? Do I need ankle socks with sneakers? Help!
~This is something that I thought was a trouble, but turned out not to be. I have a Green Toys Stacking Cup Set, which we love. Only somewhere along the way (in the Target parking lot actually), we lost the “1” cup (aka the smallest one). I rarely lose pieces to toys so it drives me nuts when it happens. Anyway, I mentioned it to a few people and they were like did you call Green Toys? Umm, no? So last night I called and after a 2 minute phone call, they are shipping me a new “1” cup. I am troubled no more! And I’m a Green Toys customer for life. Amazing customer service.
~Ugh. I went to return bottles with the boys yesterday and was super annoyed to discover that they didn’t accept many of the brands we were returning. It’s a gross enough task as it is (*) and was made even more annoying by the fact that while we BOUGHT that beer at Kroger, we can’t get the bottle deposit back at Kroger. I just said screw it and left the bottles there for them to recycle some other way, but come on now!
~And finally, Miley. Oh Miley. First of all let me just say that I am glad I do not need to explain what happened to Hannah Montana to my daughter like I am certain many people do. Second of all, what? Janet Jackson’s b**b pops out and it’s all crazy, but Miley twerking all over, well, everything, with her tongue out doing “things” with a foam finger is all good? And those teddy bears? I don’t get those at all. Is she dancing with molly? What’s going on here????
That’s it from here for now! What’s troubling you today?
