Why are you calling your little sister a chick?

I can't think of any way that even sounds appropriate.

My grandson is eight and like any other boy when watching TV or playing a video game he tunes everyone out . I found a way to get his attention. In a deep voice I yell "BOY". It was instantly offensive to both of my daughters and my mom .

Their position was the word boy was racist and offensive . So I asked the logical question. Is he a boy or a girl ? Looking back I never should've asked that .

The room exploded with three women telling me how awful I was .

It kind of pissed me off so I made my stand . From there on out when I wanted my grandson's attention I would use the word . I use it inside, I use it outside, I use it in a crown, I use it at the playground, I use it at football practice pretty much I use it whenever the hell I want.

It's still ruffles their feathers and I get plenty a dirty looks . But screw them I am old and I am set in my ways. I won't change because of outside pressure .

Unfortunately it's become a sign of the times!
The whole world is going bat ship crazy!
Why are people who are so anti gun, so easily 'triggered'?
Wait for it...in 3, 2, 1... Sorry, I had to!
:
Their heads would explode if they saw how it was back
when I grew up! And yet, there wasn't the anger back then
like there is now! Why?

One that I get called out on by my kids, is pronunciation
of people's last names! We live in a fairly small town. Have
gone to school with & known these people our whole lives.
Now all of a sudden the kids tell me that their friends don't
pronounce their last names like that! Excuse me??? That's how
their parents, grandparents & great grandparents pronounce it!
Now all of a sudden it's different! I wonder how they say it in
front of their parents? And did they correct them?

I read a good one somewhere last night!
Think about how dumb the average person is anymore.
Now stop & realize, that means that half of the people
are even dumber than that! That's a scary realization!
I cringe everytime they do on the street interviews!
What happened in basically one generation's span of time?

People don't know basic geography, can't tell a city from a
state! And forget about basic math. I've gone to yard sales
where a teenager couldn't add up a few items with pencil &
paper! One called over her grandma who must have been in
her mid 80's. She did it in her head! The young one couldn't
figure out how to make change either! They aren't being
taught life skills anymore!

But they can tell you everything about certain reality stars
or fantasy show or movie. So it's not memory problems.
More that they just aren't interested in learning life skills.
That's boring! We were taught manners, sticks & stones,
about getting along, if you can't say something nice don't
say anything at all, how to discuss/debate without arguing...

Is gotten so bad that it seems like nothing is PC anymore!
Dumb the people down, get them arguing & disagreeing on
everything. Then when they aren't paying attention, walk
right in & take over!

My sister wanted me to put some stupid show on after dinner that I had ZERO interest in so I told her that she is a “chick” and me being a “dude” didn’t want to watch it. That is how it started.
