Today I received a junk email called Women over 40 Rules! I went ballistic. There was a lot of F***U. I trashed the email unread right away. I have just heard about my limit of ten ways I’m not cutting it and Bleep, Bleep, Bleep Emergency Bikini season, the world will end. Now, I have rules for women over 40. Well I’m over 50 so … What is the sound you make when you stick out your tongue and do a raspberry? UGH!
Who the hell thinks they have the right to make up rules like this? Stop making up rules and start living your own life! Yeah I know they are just trying to sell something. Wrinkle cream or plastic surgery or whatever. The sad thing is I used to read these sort of articles for many years because they were going to tell me how to become beautiful and how to be better. I was just one trick away from getting there I was sure. After a while I was all “Yep read this article before I’m pretty sure” and “heard it, heard it, heard it already” nothing new. For the most part I stopped looking and listening to the messages but, every so often I have stupid commercial and dumb ad overload.
My pet peeve right now is a commercial for women’s razor’s I don’t know which company but, one of the lines is “Women just know how to buy shoes”. I tried to find the commercial online but all I found was a controversy about women using cheaper men’s razors which Gillette feels will ‘cause damage to their legs.
Anyway, I started to get curious about “The Rules” so I dug the email out of my trash, because this could make a good blog post as I trash each rule.
Ahh! It’s Women over 40 RULE!! Oops, YES THEY DO! In my defense they were selling hair colour!
