Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

OMG these are too awful!!! thanks for all your contributions guys!!! i will add them to the list!!!


I went to see Jerry Seinfeld last night in Toronto and it was the absolute best. He touched on some of these phrases, the ones that have the same word twice in them, and how they are so stupid. It was hilarious.


Business is business

It is what it is

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes, the two word ones! Hilarious! Smiley Very Happy @Smeegle

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594  That always makes me think of Game of Thrones... "Power is power" lol.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Tamara76April can't come quick enough.  I cannot wait to see how Cersie reacts to Daenerys Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 I always think of this picture whenever someone mentions "knowledge is power" Smiley Very Happy



Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Knowledge is 'Wikipedia!'


These kids today will NEVER know the joy of having an entire set of Encyclopedia Britannica sitting on their book shelf!  


That was my childhood even if I just enjoyed looking at the pictures! lol!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

LOL That is fantastic @prti!! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Where I work, tons of people parrot/copy  any catchphrase that they hear executives use.


The current "catch phrase of the month" is "no kidding."  Everything is the "no kidding last option" or "no kidding right thing to do" or "no kidding best solution,"  etc....   It is super-annoying and I don't think anyone realizes how silly a room of grown adults parroting each other looks.  


A coworker and I have started a bingo game of sorts to tally the use of various catchphrases in meetings... Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Welp. I am guilty of saying about half of the things on this list! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 - you probably don't say it 8 million times in a meeting/converstion though. So you're cool Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hahaha true!! I only annoy my family with it! Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy @niki172

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

A window of what exactly? A window of opportunity, a window to throw a pot of pee out of????

And let's not boil the ocean - but what if I want crab legs?? These people are just so inconsiderate I tell you. 

Seriously though if I had your brother's job I'd probably start screaming at people Smiley Very Happy.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is like my hatred for the word "curate". Outside of a museum or library, don't use this word. I especially hate it in regards to food descriptions. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh my gosh - me, too! I forgot how much I detest that word. I love when it's used to describe beauty subscription boxes. As if there's some wizened old man in a dusty room carefully selecting things for each individual box..."and this one shall have... the Porefessional" Ugh.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

You must be talking about Ulta's 'dusty room'.........with all the universe's supply of Porefessional.......hahahahahhah! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Don't forget the stockpile of Smashbox primer foils!  😉   @wheeeee

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2



When people get offended by word ASIAN? And started bullying you! I feel sorry for them. No wonder, girls are considered mean like. Ignore me if u want, don't care!


Let me define bullying for you 


"use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force him or her to do what one wants."


Bullys don't want me to use the word Asian LOL!!! Next time, you are all will be beep if I use the word black? My goodness. I don't give a beep. Keep reporting me. An Asian is an Asian is an Asian. IF I had stated something else, I would have felt bad but I only describe him. You all can think whatever you want. I cannot help you and your disgusting mind. I don't care about politically correct words. IF you WANT to be offended, I don't care. Its not my problem, if you are extra sensitive. 



Keep reporting me, even those who have previously called someone d word LOL. I am NOT dying to be here! In fact, I don't want to be part of such lame, easily offended forum. 



Ya ignore me, do whatever you want.


Like I said, I am not posting here in THIS thread again. So don't even bother tagging me. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I feel sorry for the situation, that's why I did not want to pile on. 


As a foreigner and a female, I see and experience those things. I was in a group called " Women in Science and Engineering". One thing I get taught is to stand up and make a difference. So when I was asked to ignore the post and move on, I can't. 


I said what I said in an as respectful way as possible. I was careful with my wording, and was not calling names or pointing fingers, like many others. 


Thanks for all of you guys who contributed to make the world a better place. 



Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is probably just another reply to a brick wall, but..


I saw your initial post (prior to seeing the replies) and my first thought was that the use of Asian wasn't warranted in the venting you were trying to get off your chest. A poster politely pointed out that it wasn't necessary, which in turn you went on the offensive in all of your subsequent replies. Your vent about customer service is welcome, but the need to use such a description of the service provider, especially when the point was clearly made without it, was not.


No one is telling you not to use the word Asian to describe something, they're telling you not to use it in such a negative way - especially on a public forum that is a safe haven for most from the ugliness occurring in the world.  Your reply could have simply been "sorry, my mistake!" or acknowledging that it wasn't necessary, but you continue to post hateful, defensive posts that just magnify it by 1000 and make it pretty clear you were meaning to be harmful and derogatory.  


Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@AmdSeph  Why do you keep changing your post? And if you don't want to be part of the community why do you keep posting in other threads? Is something bothering you that you feel the need to lash out here? I know you can't tell my tone from written words but I am being serious. I'm not being b!tchy or sarcastic. I'm asking. As much as your posts angers me and frustrates me I'm trying to be nice... because I don't understand how someone can't understand the meaning behind all of it. Especially when txcatx shared her thoughts... and what she had to say about her life and what's going on around her hurts me. It hurts me to my core... I recognize that I am extremely sensitive and that most people won't feel deeply as I do but I would hope they'd understand something from it.
