5 things that this week made me go (points finger) **NT!

9 Jul

I know that some, more delicate-hearted readers might be shocked by the choice of this particular swear word, but sometimes, just sometimes, it is the only word that will do.

  • A blogger with an About Me page that read “About the enigma that is xxx”.  No mate, you are not “one of nature’s puzzling secrets”. You’re a 20-something boy with an inflated ego.
  • A mother who ranted for ages at her young daughter why she couldn’t have a Magnum icecream only to guzzle one herself moments later right in front of her daughter’s snivelling face.
  • A lazy-arsed man (well i can’t be sacked again for being fattist can i?) wheezing and sweating his way through an interview complaining (rather agressively) why it was bad for his health to stand outside a pub in the freezing winter when he wants a fag. My heart bleeds.
  • Being subjected yet again to the the world’s most smug song lyrics  “And you slipped through my fingers/No not literally but met-a-pho-ri-ca-lly”.  No, you don’t look clever for fitting metaphorically into a song line, you just look like a pompous arse (i’m purposefully not mentioning the artist by name because he is widely considered to be a God, and calling him a **NT might easily get me hate mail).
  • Carol friggin’ Malone.

    I saw someone do exactly the same thing with a Magnum icecream. Perhaps we live in the same street. (checks curtains.)

      I should have mentioned that when this woman was castigating her poor child for wanting a Magnum, and the child was (quite rightly) making a fuss (she had said “you can have any icecream you want” ), she spat at her “Everyone is looking at you and thinking what a nasty spoilt brat you are”.

    *sharp intake of breath at ice cream woman* I actively encourage my child to have an ice cream so I can have one as well to keep him company.

    As for the C word, I really, really, really try to never use it but Spanish drivers are very trying sometimes.

    You must have had a bad day?! I never use that word, or the ‘f’ word either, but that doesn’t mean I don’t get cross, I do VERY. Perhaps it’s my age, or that I never heard my dad say more than ‘damn’, I only heard him say ‘bloody’ once and that really shocked me!

    One of my most favourite words! So wonderfully expressive and vulgar. Ice cream woman certainly deserved it. Come on though, enlighten us radio 4 listeners as to whom you are referring with the smug metaphor lyrics?

      A google should do it.
      And the thing is, i really like the song.
      Just shame on him for his irrepressible smugness.

    I have just come back from Google…Carole Malone looks a right one. The big M, I pulled on his trouser leg at a gig once and he tripped over, I believe he called me the c word – maybe it takes one to know one?!

    If I could be so selfish as to add to the list ‘the woman at British Gas Home (no)care call centre’, ‘the Inland Revenue’ and ‘My ex-husband’..I thank you for the intrusion! :0)

    I love the C word. You’re right when you say that sometimes, it’s the only word that will do. That’s how I feel about it. It’s the absolute expression of disgust with something/someone when you are bereft of a whole sentence to articulate exactly how you feel. I’ve mentioned this briefly on my own blog- it’s just a word. If you are otherwise eloquent (ie: not a fishwife) dropping a profanity into your conversation is Ok in my book :0)

I'm all about the debate. Would love to hear what you think.
