Re: Appropriate or inappropriate? Multigenerational dust-up

You said something inappropriate about someone's father and they called you out. Being 19 doesn't mean they cannot call out someone who is 40 and making inappropriate jokes.

You apologized to your friend, so I am sure you'll be forgiven (it's not like you fucked her husband, after all). The daughter was right in correcting / scolding you, so you'll just need to deal with being corrected by a youngster.

Tell her the 'Aristocrats' joke and have the daughter her and the husband in the lead roles, you'll need a 4th so If I were you I'd add....ohh lets say....Jack Valenti.

And end it like this..... "X#$%#$##$##$%[email protected]#@$^%$$#@@....The Aristocrats!!...oh and your daughter gave your husband a bj" Then drop the mic! or act as if you dropped the mic.....PROBLEM SOLVED!

It's OK, she only recently started blowing the Saints

As a person raised in a Mormon offshoot, I find this visual extremely unsettling.

Bullshit. I hate when people post these "personal" concerns on Facebook. "Mary...is worried about her hubby who's visiting tornado city." Seriously? He doesn't have a fucking cell phone? You actually don't know whether he's fine or not at the very moment you're writing this message? And if you, for some reason, really do NOT know...what the hell is the point of posting a Facebook message about it? Oh, that's right. It's because you're an attention whore and want a cavalcade of, "There, there, everything will be all right" posts. It's fishing for attention, nothing less.

I applaud you Vibiana, for not only not taking the bait, but making a mockery out of the inanity. And any friend that doesn't understand the fact that you're a smartass, shouldn't remain a friend for long. After 40 years, I'm quite sure she's used to your style.

People post here asking for medical advice when they should be in an ER. I don't think it's that far out of the realm of possibility that someone, especially without many friends, would post their worries on FB of they can't reach a loved one. Sometimes, people just need to get their feelings out. Just look at all the (IMO pointless) "My xxxxxx just died" threads.

Let me guess, your dad grew up in a boring house with a constant draft?

Re: Appropriate or inappropriate? Multigenerational dust-up

Wow, I'm surprised at how many of you freely admit to not having friends.


Then again, come to think of it, after reading some of these threads, I'm not actually surprised...

Re: Appropriate or inappropriate? Multigenerational dust-up

UPDATE: We are cool. Went to the movies tonight with my friend, her daughter and another friend (our age) and everything is cool, she wasn't as upset as I thought so it's all good.

Thanks for your input. I'm going to remain my smartassed self but be more careful about how flip I get in the future.










P.S. Not here, though. You bitches know you're gagging for it.

When I was a younger I told off adults, and never felt I owed them any kind of special respect just because they squirted out of a vagina a few decades before I did.

The simple fact is, most people are idiots, regardless of age. Facebook is proof of this.
Yes....the irony of your post is not lost on me.

The difference now is that her 19-year-old daughter scolded me on her mom's Facebook page, and try as I may, I just can't swallow the pill of being upbraided by someone who's young enough to be my daughter. I can't imagine ever doing that to one of my mother's friends, although to be fair, my mother was of a very different generation than mine and she was quite a bit older than me in comparison to the mothers of my friends.

A few weeks ago my friend scolded her daughter in front of me about something she and her husband were upset with Daughter about, and I told my friend afterward that I thought that was kind of not cool to do because the daughter was obviously embarrassed by having it brought up in front of someone outside the family. Now I wonder whether the daughter is striking out at me in misplaced anger over being reproved so publicly.

Anyway, it's a big ugly mess and I'd appreciate input.
40 years means the kid has known you for almost 20 yrs so I dont think she would give a rats ass being scolded in front of you and I cant believe you told your friend she shouldnt have,......also, your friend is making WAYYY to big a deal about it anyway.....also, you two are women so.....it figures

Tell me, how do you manage to fit in time with all your friends while averaging 500 posts a year?
