How about a big box of shut the hell up?


Angry? Me? Actually no. But this search term that landed a reader on my blog just kills me. Wendy, you challenged me to write a blog post on this one, so here it is. 

Ask my family. This has overshadowed my need to sing Kung Fu Fighting daily. (yes, I really do that) I don’t know why I find this so funny. I love when something can make me laugh like that, even if it is completely ridiculous. Oh, that’s right, I love the completely ridiculous. In fact, I might have to say that is the mission statement of this blog. (are mission statements still fashionable?)

Over the past few days I have found that I have given this advise to people more than once.

What, you have a client that just changed the complete direction of a project you are working on? (you know who you are). Well, just send them ‘a big box of shut the hell up?’.

You say that a social worker you hired to help you navigate the horrific sandwich generation task of handling your elderly parent’s healthcare issues just threatened to quit? (you also know who you are). Well, my friend, get her on the phone and let her know she is getting a special delivery ‘big box of shut the hell up’.

Ok, one more. Your teenager is arguing with you, over text message no less, and you have had enough? (you surely know who you are). Tell her case closed and when she gets home she can carry that ‘big box of shut the hell up’ to her room and remember who’s the mama in your house. 

I am thinking of putting out a product line. (nobody steal this, ok) If you would design a big box of shut the hell up, what would it look like? Seems I have already started on the logo.

Haven’t had enough of me yet? You can also read me at Mid-Century Modern Moms and at 50-Something Moms Blog.

    How about ( nobody steal this either) pre -printed colored post it notes with
    “Shut the Hell Up!” written on them? This way you can carry them in your pocket or pocketbook, or maybe just a few in your wallet, and hand them out in times of need…………. anyone know a good printer? (you know who you are!)

    I’ll take 10 to go, please. How abt a button that lights up on command when you’re in the company of a blow hard.

  4. I am so in need of a box of this…I’ll be waiting for you to ship it to me…lmao!

    On a good note, you can get a box shipped to your house with something good in it if you come enter one of 3 contests on my blogs and you get 4 chances on each blog…
