I know from time to time I can go in pretty hard on men in my posts, but don’t worry though, I’m an equal opportunity meanie. Observing folks, just like with men, I’ve encountered both really admirable, inspiring and uber-friendly women, as well as extremely “ratchet” and disrespectful ones too. The latter type of woman is what inspired my list for today. If you’ve done these things, I ask you to do just a tad bit better (or a lot) because the following public behavior is NOT cute. The title says “SOME” so if you’re not one of these ladies, please don’t act a fool in the comment’s section.
Being Proud of Ratchet Behavior
As a woman, fighting another woman is not cute if you don’t have to. Hell, men fighting isn’t cute if it’s not for a good reason. So I’m trying to figure out what’s up with young and older women running through the streets talking talking loud on phones and in public about whose weave they will or have pulled out someone’s head, whose a** they are going to beat, and muffing grown men in the head talking about what the brotha won’t do back. First of all, why are you talking at that volume??? And why are you cursing so loud, embarrassing both you and I? Everyone gets pissed from time to time, but the women out here screeching for attention because of their short fuse have got to stop. That’s not hot. WOOOSA!
Playing “Too Cute” to Dance
Are we in the fifth grade again? Really though, not that you should be in the middle of a dance floor face down, butt up talking about “This my jam!!!!”, but what’s going on with all the women who act like they’re too cute to dance at parties and at the club? I’ve noticed that a lot recently, and who knows, could be the too tall shoes or the fact that you need to keep your dress (or hair) in place, but it’s just weird to me. Why stand off to the side with the same chicks (and sans the company of a man) you see every other day, paying good gas money for drinks when you could have done the same, but sitting down at the house for a lot cheaper? If you’re not trying to converse with new people or at least bust out a two-step, why bother?
Letting Your Man Do Whatever to You in Public
So a friend and I went to the West-Indian and Caribbean parade yesterday in Brooklyn and it’s safe to say that there were some characters out there! But nothing shocked me more than to see a man and his girl, moving through the crowd of people, with his ENTIRE hand in the back of her shorts. I know about booed up folks back in the day putting their hands in each other’s back pockets, but I’ve never seen it go THAT far. Mind you, this young woman did NOT have underwear on, so her boo had his hand all up and down her butt crack. AND it was hot as that “thang” outside. It was the most gross, inappropriate thing I think I’ve seen in a VERY long time. The fact that she didn’t care about how his hand made her look in public to all the folks that were laughing or staring in shock at her was amazing to me. What’s worse though? The fact that her man shook hands with a friend with the same dirty hand he had in her pants. EWWWWWW!
Ignoring a Child’s Bad Behavior to Shop
This sucks for both shoppers and people who work in customer service, mainly because a child allowed to run wild can tear up some stuff, and a child whose cries aren’t contained can give anybody a sick headache. I get it. It sucks that you can’t ever find someone to watch your child for a few hours while you spend some money in the mall, but don’t take it out on the rest of us by letting your son or daughter act a fool. Act a fool how you ask? By pulling down clothes, running into people, opening and eating food YOU won’t pay for, wasting lotion by pushing pumps repeatedly, and giving everyone a heart attack as they balance themselves on things NOT meant for balancing. Same goes for crying, especially in the case of a child old enough to know when to stop. You don’t have to give into what they want, but for the love of God, do something!
Wearing Shower Caps in Public
Did you run out of the shower into public with a shower cap on because a fire alarm went off? No? Then you have no excuse for walking down the street with a shower cap on your head. I understand you want to avoid the humidity as much as possible when it rains, but we all have to make sacrifices. Shower caps on women well-dressed on their way to work (or play) is extremely crazy looking. Invest in an umbrella please, and leave the shower caps for bath time. Oh yeah, this goes for men too. Okay Snoop!?
Overprotective Girlfriends: Giving the Stank Face for No Reason
Have you ever been introduced to a woman AND her man while out with your own friends and found her demeanor to be…a little icy? Granted, you haven’t even had the chance to say boo to her other than hello. If this has happened to you, don’t trip, you’re not the only one. I don’t know if these kind of women think you’re going to try and jump their man’s bones underneath the table when they’re not looking, but giving people the cold shoulder just because you’re threatened for no reason is not cool. Something worse that proves a chick like this is “mucho” petty is if you pay her a compliment and THEN, only after that compliment is given, she warms up to you. Talking about, “It was nice to meet you girl!” Was it!? Seriously?
Talking About People in Your Company
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard of women hanging out with other chicks, being annoyed by a certain one, and then trying to send a text about how lame that person is to another friend at the table. However, that text ends up reaching the person you’re talking about. While that’s a funny story, it’s really bogus. You know it. I know it. You can take it back to the “treat people how you want to be treated” mantra for this one. Just as you wouldn’t want someone talking about how tacky your outfit is in your face on the low or texting someone about how they wish you would shut up, you shouldn’t do the same…or at least wait until you get home…Kidding!
