T-shirts that annoy me beyond belief
I shouldn’t get this irritated when I see people with stupid T-shirts. Yeah, I said it. STUPID T-shirts. And mainly worn by guys. Apparently they never took the Dwight Schrute route, which is, “When I’m about to do something, I ask myself, would an idiot do this? And if so, I don’t do it.”

T-shirt I Hate No. 1
“The Game Over”

What self-respecting woman would let her boyfriend/fiancĂ©/husband wear this shirt? It really offends me to see a guy wearing this shirt. Not only do I just want to smack him in the head and ask, “Do you really think that marriage is a game, or are you trying to be cute? Either way, EPIC FAIL!” but I also want to find the lame chick he’s got wrapped around his finger and tell her that life is more than getting her MRS degree. NEXT!

T-shirt I Hate No. 2
“Can You See Me Now”

I saw a motorcyclist wearing this just this week, and, I’ll be honest, it was all I could do not to roll my window down while we were waiting at the red light and yell, “YEAH! And my best friend’s husband was in a motorcycle wreck!”
Here’s the thing. Sometimes, people aren’t paying attention while driving. This is REALLY bad, but it happens. And the lady who hit Dustin literally said, “I just didn’t see him.” Some neon orange shirt with a smart-aleck saying is not going to change that. It’s just going to make me want to ram you.

T-shirt I Hate No. 3
“Booty-licious” (apparently)
I don’t have a picture of this (because, frankly, I was a little nervous about what might come up when I typed in a keyword on my work computer) and it’s not a T-shirt. But why are little girls (anyone under 15) wearing super short shorts with words such as “booty” or “fine” or whatever the heck people have written across their rear ends now. Why? WWWHHHHHYYYYY?
Now, I also will admit that I have a pair of shorts with words written across them. They were free and they are not worn outside of the house, for multiple reasons. For instance, I do not wear them in the mall. Or at school. Again, WWWHHHHHYYYYY?

Now, however, there are some T-shirts that I super heart.

T-shirt I Love No. 1A
“The Dogfather”

Oh my gosh, who DOESN’T love the idea of a Chihuahua Godfather? Too precious (and a little scary).

T-shirt I Love No. 1B
“Real Men Love Chis”

Of course, they do. I don’t know why they added that disclaimer at the bottom, though.

T-shirt I Love No. 2
“The Lost Geek”

I know you’re out there…

T-shirt I Love No. 3
“This is not a pipe”

Sigh…Oh, I can’t wait for June 1, when I will order this shirt and wear it Sunday nights as Hubby and Hubby’s friend play Super Mario while Rebecca and I watch.

my mom has pictures of her and my dad when they were younger (she looks 12 but was probably about 18 or 20) that say "slave" and "master". seriously. she's appropriately ashamed now

Lol!! I think sometimes I get too easily offended over some things...maybe I should drink more coffee...? =D HAHA!

I am so with you on "hate #3" Little girls should not have anything that encourages boys or men to look at their bottoms. I do not understand that one AT ALL!

Those are some stupid t-shirts. I wonder about people too sometimes! You had some good ones too!

I've never been one that's offended by someone else's clothing. Yeah, I might think it's stupid, but I'm sure others thought the same of me. In college, I was the kid of the silly shirt: "My mother says I'm special"; "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted and used against you"; "Super Student" with the "ent" crossed out; "Make 7UP Yours"; etc. Sure, there are shirts I never would have worn, but it's all about individual expression and the freedom to do so, which as a journalist, I figured you'd be all for!

The motorcycle shirt really got me. My experience, having almost hit motorcylist twice, has proven it's them driving dumb, and thankfully God alerted me to the blur that was dashing in and out of small road spaces at speeds much faster than everyone else was traveling. GRRRR

I'll admit, Bret, this was more for humor than actual anger. Most of my stuff is. ;)

Real men DO love chihuahuas! :)

Love the LOST shirt! And according to it...I am a geek fa sho!

Jill said...

I also hate that first shirt you mentioned! What self-respecting woman would marry a man that thought that way, much less wore a shirt expressing his opinion!?

Kim said...

I have to admit that I just bought my boyfriend a dumb t shirt. haha. I guess it wasn't that bad. I said "You had me at bacon."
