PETTY..PETTY..PETTY..PETTY

Published May 10, 2016 by chellebooker

 

Ok how many times have you heard the phrase or phrases

“Stop being so petty”

“Oooh you’re just so petty”

“Petty is as petty does”

 Well if you’re anything like me you’ve heard an overuse of the word but also guilty of using it yourself a time or two. Since I know we as people have our own version of what every word in the “urban” dictionary means I decided to just research it for myself and here is what I found….

 1. When someone takes a small subject & blows it out of proportion

..Basically making a mountain out of a mole hill.

 2. Being deliberately nasty or rude for no reason

..Basically being childish.

 Now with all that being said & reading the meaning of the word I want to say this, it’s bad enough that so grown women are going around being all petty, especially on social media but when you run across a grown man that’s doing it, it’s a major turnoff. There is nothing appealing to a grown woman about a petty man, the same way I’m sure no grown man likes a petty woman & if they do then they both have some growing up to do. If you find yourself acting out of character all because of what someone else has done or is doing then you’re really making a fool out of yourself & not even realizing you’re actually pushing that person away & not drawing them to you, being petty is the worse thing a person can do in a relationship. So while you’re sitting back thinking “Bam I got them”, what you’ve really gotten yourself is a single status.

 If you’re confused as to what I’m talking about let me explain it real quick…..

1. Don’t call me, I won’t call you {petty}

2. Won’t answer my questions in a timely fashion, I’ll ignore you {petty}

3. Won’t like my stuff, I won’t like yours {petty}

4. Your phone is locked I’ll lock mine {petty}

5. Won’t help me, I won’t help you {petty}

 Now back to what I was saying, I hate a petty female but since most females are naturally jealous of other females for no reason it’s kind of to be expected, but I truly despise a petty man/boy. You see I feel men are supposed to be strong, show strength & stand their grounds but when they resort going tit for tat then that becomes a major turnoff & will push a person away from them quicker than cheating will. Changing your actions to become petty all because you think it will draw the person to you is a sure way to get yourself 1st place in the singles line.

 But to those who choose to act petty here’s a little something from me to you….

Helping Another..Burning Bridges

Published May 9, 2016 by chellebooker

I’m sure if you’re reading this at some point in your life you’ve lent a helping hand to someone who needed it, I’m also sure that someone has extended that same courtesy to you so therefore you should truly understand what I’m about to say.

If you’re going to do something or offer help to someone you should just do it without making demands or expecting anything in return, that even includes a simple “Thank You”, you shouldn’t expect someone to jump through hoops just to receive your help if your offer to help is coming from a good place. If you’re going to offer help then it should be between the two of you unless they choose to tell someone of the “blessing” they received from you. When helping someone it should be done from the heart & not from expectancy, you should never throw back in their face what you’ve done for them because in doing so it shows that you may have had an ulterior motive to begin with, which is why you offered it in the first place.

 

Now if someone has ever helped you, if they have ever stepped up when everyone else stepped back & out of the blue you get angry with them because things didn’t go your way or you just decide to cut them off for whatever reason you should at least extend them the common courtesy as to why. You should not leave them in the dark & have them guessing, I’m mean surely they deserve at least that from you.

Bottom Line Is This: Just because you feel you’re in a better place at the moment you never know what each day holds so you may want to be careful of the bridges you burn, once burnt there is no rebuilding. You have to be mindful of the people you help, because no matter how much you may want too it’s not meant for you to help everyone.

The Great Snap Debate

Published May 7, 2016 by chellebooker

My oh my where do I even begin with this one right here, guess the only thing to do is just jump right to it.
I’ve been seeing certain stupid post {yes I called them stupid you will soon see why} then after seeing a YouTube video a few days ago where a lady was literally in line at a store berating & cursing a young father out not only in front of his kid but also hers & the words that were coming out her mouth was just pure ignorant & I feel sorry for her son because of the things she’s teaching him.

Now in case you haven’t figured out what I’m talking about I’ll tell you, there seems to be this BIG misconception about the use of food stamps, I see all these ignorant pictures like this right here….No Job Groceries

Now correct me if I’m wrong but if a person has kids, no job & they’re receiving food stamps then those stamps only last for so long. What do you think the parents do when the food runs out before the next month comes, now tell the people what do your hardworking self do when your food runs out? See you have more income coming in & go out and purchase food items if need be but a family receiving food stamps don’t have that luxury, they have to “get by” the best way they can. I’m not really sure how much people seem to think a person gets monthly in food stamps but I’m sure it’s way less than they make working where they may get paid 4 times or month or twice a month. Also people would be surprised at the people who work but still get food stamps to try & help subsidize their minimal income so their kids can at least have a decent meal during the week.
I don’t seem to understand why the food stamp shaming is taking place, I’ve spoken with several people on both sides of the spectrum & I can assure you that those who get stamps would gladly trade places with those of you who unlucky people who have to pay for your food with cash. They would trade places with you because they feel they would have a sustainable income where they can better provide for their kids & they wouldn’t have to rely on so many processed foods just to make their food budget stretch month to month. How many of you would be willing to try & make it an entire month off of the amount of stamps that they get & yes you have to take in account the amount of  mouths they have to feed oppose to the amount you have to feed? I’ve seen several “celebrities” take the “food stamp” challenge & many of them have been honest & said they don’t see how it’s done.

See I’ve been on both sides of the spectrum & I can honestly say that I prefer working & buying groceries every pay period oppose to once a month, I can honestly tell you that I bought more groceries with cash every month than I did with food stamps. So if you’re feeling some type of way about the buggy on the left & think it’s so unfair because you’re a hard-working tax payer let me leave you with this small bit of information to chew on while you’re being pissed off about someone actually using their Snap benefits for feeding their kids…….

EBT

Now about the woman {and others who think like her} that was berating the man in the store for using food stamps & claiming that she pays so much out her taxes for people like him, since she’s so smart she might want to fact check herself & realize that $1 of every $5 spent to purchase items on food stamps is spent at Wal-Mart. And because of Walmart’s low wages, even full-time employees often still qualify for benefits. She would also know that the amount of taxes coming out of her paycheck {if what she’s saying is true about her paying taxes}for the snap program amount to only around $0.10 cents a day, which when added up is only $36.50 a year.
So next time before you repost one of the ignorant “memes” about anything you may want to fact check yourself so you won’t end up looking like a donkey’s backside in the long run.

You never know what someone’s story is, so why bully & shame them for trying
to feed their kids the best way they can, which happens to be Snap benefits, also you may want to know posting & doing videos to this effect is a form of bullying.
Try thinking before you post or repost such foolishness.
