A few weeks ago, I texted my brother to see if he’d had a good birthday. “It was great!” he said, “I stayed home, ate some roast chicken, and watched a movie.”

“Wait, that was a good birthday?” I asked, trying to communicate my confusion without being rude. “I’m glad you were into it, I’m just not sure I would call that a good birthday.”

His response was quick and to-the-point: “That’s because women always hate their birthdays.”

At first I got a little offended by the generalization, but when I thought about it, I have indeed hated my birthday every year for the past decade or so, as have the vast majority of my friends. Why do so many women greet their day of birth with “UUGGGHH” rather than excitement? Why have I cried myself to sleep with a belly full of birthday cake on more occasions than I can count? Why do men seem immune to many of these birthday issues? After some self-reflection and polling a ton of lady friends, I’ve settled on these 10 reasons: Keep reading »

Airport Layover

Over the weekend I found myself enduring a 3-hour layover in what may be the worst airport in the world. I’m not going to name names, but it’s in Chicago and rhymes with “Bidway.” I mean, it might have been bearable if it weren’t for the sweltering concourse, the long lines for every bathroom, the astonishing lack of coffee, and frequent last-minute terminal changes that sparked frantic human stampedes. As it was, I felt like I had been banished to a particularly unpleasant section of hell for a never-ending afternoon. Here are a few ways I passed the time, and a few ways I wish I would have passed the time. Feel free to use this list next time you find yourself stuck in a terrible airport for a terrible layover…  Keep reading »

How to give advice to your partner without being annoying

Here’s the conundrum: the person who you love most in the world wants to talk about an issue. You’re honored, of course, that they’re coming to you with their dilemma, but at the same time, it’s challenging because you know them so well that you can cut straight through the BS and tell them that this isn’t really about their boss, it’s about their control issues with their father and they better address those first. But you can’t say that because they’ll probably want to punch your in the face for being so right. Being right — rather than empathetic — can be awfully annoying when your partner is having a vulnerable moment. But they need your input. What to do? Tread lightly and carry a tiny stick. Meaning, it’s all in the delivery. Here are some tips to help you master one of the most important relationship skills: how to give your SO guidance without pissing them off. Keep reading »

10 Reasons Straight Women Check Out Other Women's Boobs

If one rule holds true about human sexuality, it’s that everyone goes hogwild for boobsbig bazoongas, itty bitty titties, sideboob, underboob, nip slips, boob tricks, cleavageTits, tits, tits! chants the human race. Although we’ve known this forever because DUH, a groundbreaking new study published in the journal Sex Roles confirms once and for all that all human creatures love to ogle boobs. After hooking people up to eye censors and forcing them to look at boobie pics (the horror!), researchers discovered that “both sexes fixed their gaze more on women’s chests and waists and less on faces.” Yep, science has officially proven that it’s not just straight dudes who love to stare at boobs; gay men and straight women are also guilty of ignoring the “my eyes are up here” rule. We love to look tits, too. Why, you ask? Here are some reasons we might get caught checking out other women’s boobs. [Gawker] Keep reading »

What Happens Every Time You Log On Netflix

I don’t know about you guys, but I always have big plans when I click on my Netflix bookmark. I’m going to finally watch that documentary that will make me sound smart when I reference it at parties! I’m going to get caught up on the heavy British drama that’s supposedly really good! I’m going to check out that offbeat comedy I jotted down the name of months ago! But I’ve found that no matter my intentions, all of my Netflix surfing always plays out in the exact same way. As follows: Keep reading »

I am 4’11” and I absolutely love it. While it wasn’t always something I liked, these days I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s a part of who I am and really fits my personality. I can sit comfortably in a tiny airplane seat, I can crowd-weave like nobody’s business, and being tiny secretly makes me feel dainty (never thought I would admit that one!), The bottom line is: I like being short. But the strange thing about my height is this phenomenon in which people seem to think I don’t know I’m short. They also believe that it is now their personal job to inform me, in case I hadn’t realized in the past few decades. My height is a part of my persona, but it’s kind of old news to me. It never occurred to me to bluntly inform others of the status of their physical traits, but there is something about being short that makes me an unsolicited opinion magnet. Maybe this happens to tall girls too? Enlighten me.

The thing is that when people make cutesy “short” commentary to me (which usually isn’t meant to be rude) they honestly believe they are the first people to say it. Here are the most common things people say or do to me that they think are oh-so-original. Some are endearing and funny, some are eyeroll-inducing. ALL are overused… Keep reading »

40 Annoying Habits That Will Give Your Coworkers A Nervous Breakdown

In honor of Global Handwashing Day (yes, it’s real holiday!), the Metro UK compiled a list of the five most annoying types of coworkers. Among them were the sick person (who spreads their plague just by setting foot in the office), the feeder (who shows up every day with leftover cookies or birthday cake) the noisy eater (who slurps and sucks and licks their fingers after they eat Dorito’s) the stuff losers (who are always looking for their pen or their shoes) and the Google disbelievers (who still doesn’t know where to look for guidance about how to spell the word I-N-F-U-R-I-A-T-I-N-G).

Really? These sounds pretty innocuous when compared to some of the INFURIATING human beings we’ve worked with. We’ll take the person who brings in cake over the person who announces their bowel movements any day of the work week. Here are the top 40 most annoying coworker habits we’ve encountered. Please note: If you do any of these things, on behalf of the workforce, we beg you to stop before you drive your colleagues insane. Keep reading »
