Let’s talk about low standards. Let’s talk about how Pinterest quotes teach you that low standards are kind of ok. Let’s talk about how Pinterest quotes teach you that low standards aren’t actually low standards at all and you’re really a very difficult person, you bitchface.

Girl, if you are a bitchface, I sympathize, because I am a bitchface too sometimes, but lowering your standards to the point that all you’re looking for is someone who can put up with you? Well. Let’s work on that, shall we?

Still, I know I can be difficult…


(Nothing like a fart joke to lighten things up, huh?)

        I’m so lucky that my man knows I’m not “done” until I fart.

        • ChickieD November 18, 2013 - 11:59 am Reply

          You are doing it wrong, hon.

          • Catherine November 18, 2013 - 12:06 pm

            How do you figure?

          • ChickieD November 18, 2013 - 12:11 pm

            I don’t think the big ending is supposed to be a fart. Or maybe I’m doing it wrong?

          • Catherine November 18, 2013 - 12:13 pm

            Well the big ending is the big O. Considering that it’s all the same muscles sometimes the big O equals a fart slipping out. But hey thanks for trying to make me feel stupid. I appreciate it.

          • ChickieD November 18, 2013 - 12:33 pm

            I wasn’t trying to make you feel stupid; just making a joke. I got where you were going with that.

          • Catherine November 18, 2013 - 1:01 pm

            Well, your “joke” was pretty condescending.

          • ChickieD November 18, 2013 - 2:23 pm

            Sorry. “You’re doing it wrong” is a thing that people say in comments as a joke. I guess you were unfamiliar with the saying. I was not trying to make you feel stupid. It’s just possible to misread what you wrote as meaning that the big ending to sex is a fart, and I thought it was pretty funny to imagine someone who thought a giant fart was the “touchdown” so to speak in sex. That’s all I meant, not that I *actually* thought that you really thought a fart was the same as a big O.

          • Catherine November 18, 2013 - 2:35 pm

            I’m familiar with “you’re doing it wrong” but ending that in hon is condescending. I guess I should say you’re doing it wrong about making jokes. See? It’s totally not about you!

          • ChickieD November 18, 2013 - 3:42 pm

            Okay. I really didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. I’m sorry.

          • Catherine November 18, 2013 - 7:06 pm

            Thank you.

            We were talking about trigger words in school last week. I guess hon is one of mine.

          • Veronica Wolfe November 18, 2013 - 6:36 pm

            @disqus_9Yv8Y2Ng3M:disqus Clearly you don’t share the same humor as @ChickieD:disqus but sheesh, could you be any more of an ass an apology was offered, should she cut off part of her pinkie to atone for hurting your feelings? Would that be better for you ? Also find it odd your reaction to a joke you didn’t like because it made you feel stupid is to try and make the other person feel stupid.

          • Catherine November 18, 2013 - 7:05 pm

            1) I didn’t see an apology. I saw a non-apology. A sorry you were offended type thing until 3 hours ago when ChickieD actually said “I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. I’m sorry.”
            2) I guess I could say it was a joke. Apparently all it takes to make a condescending comment okay is to say it was a joke. Why does condescension work as a joke for one person, but not another?

          • vvwolfe November 18, 2013 - 10:35 pm

            Eye for an eye then, two wrongs do make it right after all silly me. I find it hypocritical when someone is offended by something then uses the same tactic to re-pay the offense.

          • Catherine November 19, 2013 - 9:18 am

            My line saying “you’re doing it wrong at making jokes” was to show that just by saying “it’s a joke” doesn’t make it any less personal to the person it’s being said to. Honestly, I don’t see any way to take “You’re doing it wrong, hon” as anything other than personal.

        OMFG! I almost had an asthma attack laughing so hard at that one.

        • kittentoes November 12, 2013 - 3:57 am Reply

          You sure it wasn’t fart-induced asthma?

    All I can think is that is a fucking excellent way to end up in a relationship with an abusive jackass, because they generally don’t like to let willing victims go. (‘Oh, honey, you put up with me!’ “I do. But you fucked up! *slap!*” ‘Oh, you’ll never leave me, so I’m gonna stay too!’) I may be reading waaaaay too much into this, but this shit does NOT sound healthy to me.
    Also, I tend to think — and, please keep in my mind that I am a badly controlled pile of neuroses on a GOOD day! — that being dumped if you’re an asshole is generally a good thing, because you may just reconsider that assholish position of yours (er, general you). Plus, being dumped for certain things may make you realize you demand WAY TOO MUCH in a romantic relationship (which, ironically, may include ‘stay even if I am a bitchface’). Anyway, this was all a long-winded way of saying, “I’m a badly controlled pile of neuroses, and even I think this is a fucking awful idea!”

      Exactly what I thought… and for some damned reason Disqus won’t let me log in.

    All I need is someone I can abuse.

    Omg! I love it with the fart thing on it! I kinda sorta have gas issues. Somehow, I fart in bed every night before I go to sleep. It wouldn’t be an issue, except that I’ll move or something and it wafts right up to my face.

  • Rachel November 10, 2013 - 11:23 pm Reply

    It’s kind of ironic, because I’ve always wanted someone who knows that if I’m making it “hard to be with me,” you should probably leave me the hell alone.

    We are humans. None of us are “easy”. Even low maintenance is high maintenance so everyone just needs to man up, put on their big boy/girl panties and realize the shit only gets more difficult from here. All we really need is someone who just gets that sometimes we suck, sometimes we are awesome, and sometimes, if the other person is really bad we just need to bolt. All I need is someone to bring cookies. To my mouth.

      Big boy panties. Hehehe.

    What Pinterest really needs is someone to teach them where a fucking period goes. Next time you do one of these, I think you should red pen the shit out of grammatical errors.

    Does a comatose 95 year old man count? Or, an inmate; they really don’t have a choice to leave do they?
