to wonder why some people take exception to certain things that are NOT that important?

For example:

1. Shared email addresses are nauseatingly smug symbols of stifling coupledom. And no-one in their right minds would choose to be friends with owners of said addresses.

2. Non-manicured feet are signs of utter moral depravity and unacceptable laziness.

Two things that would never have occurred to me before this year.

What would I do without MN? hmm

I have found all sorts of things to be outraged about, thanks to MN. wink

No. 2 is an odd thing to worry about at this time of year - your feet are hidden in socks and shoes so who cares whether they are manicured or not?

Well they do edam. I have it on good authority (MN)

What would you do/ You'd be a doormat to your OH and have the feet of a yeti.

Don't you find all the heaving bosoms and harumphing entertaining?
I do, but then I am a lazy and morally-depraved individual who used her feet for walking rather than an art forum. grin

YABU for starting a thread about other threads.

Hey knickers. I don't peel my feet and we only have one email address betwee 5 of us (plus a cat and 3 rats). So I am obviously unreasonable hmm

Is there another thread full of traumatised women full of PTSD after having to see my feet during parents' evening?

My email is my dh's name because he set it up 8yrs ago.I didn't take his name when we got married so it is a little confusing, but surely only other computers worry about email address details?

My heels are terrible and my nails could be spades.

I wear socks and rarely email - so neither of these things bother me and YANBU - I prefer to fill my head with mindless crap that doesn't involve worrying about the state of other people.

I often paint my toenails in a hurry to avoid them being seen bare and orangey coloured from old paint jobs... yes I take exception! feet can be gross..

Shared email addresses - whatever...
