Stuff That Bugs Me*

Stuff that bugs me? People who make up names for their family on their blog. They call their kids stuff like "Princess Zoot" or "Raspberry" or "Scudder." The spouse they call "Big Mama" or "The Wife" or "King Wa."

Feels contrived. You're writing about your family on the Interwebs. You really think that by giving them pseudonyms you're protecting their privacy?

(*Not a comprehensive list by any means - stay tuned ....)

Oooo, I hate this too! It really bugs me to hear people call their kids "Sis" or "Cub." I also hate "The Wife" and also "Hubby." Of course, I'm not just talking about making up names on blogs, I'm talking about people who call out for their kids (mostly in Walmart) as "Sissy," "Sister" or "Cub." Just grates on my nerves.
