13 THINGS I HARDLY CAN STAND

"That's completely normal" meauws Pookie Image Hosted by ImageShack.us with "friends" !

1. When I go with one to an Exposition and she talks for an hour about her intestines and the troubles she has with her constipation, describing everything in details, while I look at the paintings.

2. When one talks all the time about her skin and body and what kind of cremes she uses, while we are sitting in a cinema and waiting for a movie to start and everybody listens.

3. When one praises her son and what an important man he had become and the wonderful studies he had made, forgetting that the guy had spent 9 years at University payed by the parents of course.

4. When one starts to speak with a group of youngsters having fun on the street and just wants to behave the same, and they are making fun of her, which of course she doesn't realize.

5. When one behaves like a foolish, giggeling girl when she sees some young men. (and I cross-eyed, behind her, looking to heaven have to excuse her).

6. When one makes big sweet cow eyes to seduce a young man and he doesn't know what to do not to be unpolite.

7. When one absolutely wants to convince me to stop smoking and tells me horrendous stories about people she know and died from lung cancer

8. When one is talking about her weight all the time and has no other conversation. For example I talk about the world's end and she still finds a way to direct the conversation to her weight.

9. When one asks me to do the shopping for her and always forget that usually when you buy something you have also to pay.

10. When one spends a nice week-end in my house and then disappears for months without even saying "thank you" and then suddenly shows up as if she had seen me yesterday

11. When one talks about her wonderful husband all the time and I know that he makes eyes on every skirt passing by, me included.

12. When one says that her daughter is telling her everything, I think that is so pretentious, and I know that the daughter doesn't say everything !

13. I have to say that none of these belong to my real friends !

I saw this note this morning :

End of Thursday Thirteen. "Regarding the questions about continuing the Thursday Thirteen, no interested parties have approached me to discuss purchasing the rights to it."

I don't know if TT is protected by copyright. But to avoid any problems why don't we just continue as before and call it NEW THURSDAY THIRTEEN or THIRTEEN 1/2 ? I would do it, but I think I am too new and not enough experienced. What do you think about this idea and who would be interested to do it ?

You are stronger than me. I could not have endured 5 minutes of even one of those encounters. I would have split and run. I love the cartoon.
Thursday Thirteen has come to an end.
I have enjoyed my visits here and consider us friends.
Thank you for sharing your thirteens with me.
The comments you left me filled me with glee.
It is hard to believe it is really true.
I am trying very hard to not be blue.
Happy TT'ing!

Hehhee, I love that little cartoon! :) Nice list :)

Thank you for sharing. I always like to chuckle.

Take care.

DellaB said...

hahaha - very funny cartoon - Gatina, I think I have met every one of those people on your list - not my friends either, of course ::smiles::

Christine said...

I too know people like that. Great post. Great cartoon. Thanks for dropping by my site. Take care, XINE

tvaddictgurl said...

I know a few who done at least one or two of those.

Happy last TT

Shoshana said...

I'd probably have an urgent reason and disappear. I only sit there and listen if it's a really, really good friend!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Oooo - you have a furry good idea...Thursday Thirteen 1/2! We is furry sad to see this happen too - we was just gettin' started!

mar said...

Glad to know the list doesn't refer to your real friends!! Your list was fun to read.
I have no idea about copyrights but I love the idea of continuing the TT somehow...if it's not illegal! I have enough problems outside the blogging world, lol!!

mar said...

I took the day off from TT today and look what happened!!

Tink said...

Great list!
I like the idea to continue the TT in one way or another. I hope someone can take over. Copyrights and such are to be talked over with Leanne of course. *fingers crossed*!
Thanks for visiting my TT. Come back to give it a try!

Melli said...

I am ROFL! I can't even believe that she would EXPECT someone to PAY for the rights to TT!!! How OUTRAGEOUS is that??? Good grief it's a blog game -- and people can continue doing it regardless of if she's running it or not! Sheeeeesh.....

As for your list... these all sounds suspiciously like true to life stories... and yet you say they belong NOT to your friends... hmmmm... who's friends DID do these things??? LOL! Your list got me wondering this morning... I wonder what I do that drives MY friends crazy! (that they are of course too courteous to tell me about!) Do you wonder THIS too now?

Claire said...

Great list, i have friends, well ex friends like some of them!
How about Thursday Thirty minus 17?

Carmen said...

you say your real friends don't do these things. Unfortunately, mine do! :(

Maribeth said...

I am laughing because I have known people like this. Maybe it's why I prefer my animals to people sometimes!
Mine is up.

happy and blue 2 said...

I didn't know the TT was for sale. I think I will buy it and start charging a huge fee for people to participate..

Darla said...

LOL! I'm glad to know those aren't your real friends!

Joy Renee said...

ah yes. i know these people too. i'm related to a few. i might have been one a time or two... but i tend to wear out the ears of my family with doom and gloom...the sky is falling, the dark ages are coming...no they say that's just snow and the libraries locking their doors is just politicians putting the squeeze on...and homeless vets and babies orphaned by bombs that's just history loving the sound of its own voice and recycling popular plot lines. there are only just so many and stories with no conflict are boring afterall...

my final TT is 13 ways to support the troops. not a bump sticker, magnet or T-shirt among them. if i'd known this was to be the last TT i might have tried to go out on a lighter note as you did. you might prefer to visit last week's 13 giggles instead.

i will find reasons to keep returning. i get such a kick out of your kitty kats' shenanigans.

re: #7, folks only say those things to friends or family because they love 'em and don't want 'em to die or end up sick and unhealthly later in life.

Great list ... your number 8 could be talking about my mother ... she is obsessed with her weight (she looks great, and isn't overweight ... just obsessed !!). I can be talking about something important, and she starts complaining about how her clothes fit, or what she shouldn't be eating. Sigh, it is very frustrating !!
Shame about TT finishing ... I've never participated, but have enjoyed reading everyone's lists.
Take care, Meow

Gela said...

Great list! I was feeling bad for you...until I got to the end! Thirteen 1/2 sounds like a great idea. I just got started and hate to see the party end!

TorAa said...

Love the cartoon and missed
#14 I hate people who think they can copyright everything.

Make it only: TT (2, 3, 13, 10, 20, 1000, trillion). Second T stands for Torsdag:)

My Fun Friday is up (ooops):))

Have a funny weekend.

btw. Fatness now considered more dangerous than smoking. Overweight kills. Sugar kills. War kills. Life kills. Human kills. Animals kills.
And on every cars dashboard: Speed kills.

Mrs Lifecruiser said...

I cut off "friends" with that kind of behaviour at once. Can't stand it. Maybe that's why I don't have any friends....? *LMAO*

Except Miss Ass Lifecruiser, my best friend, but she is as crazy as I am.... *lol*

In the blogosphere though, it's quite the oppposite, very nice friends - and funny too - like you :-)

About the TT: could be difficult to keep up since we're so widespread. I hope, but doubt, that any one want to take over in the real meaning of taking over. Selling TT? hm. I didn't know that there were such copyright on things like this. In that case it could be difficult to go on, we can be violating the copyrights...? Where to draw the line?

Irish Church Lady :) said...

I was feeling sorry for you too with all these 'friends'! LOL

Apparently TT is not ending after all. I really don't understand it. There was no posting about wanting to end it, and then suddenly it was retired, now it is back on but under someone else's ownership. I think I am a little jaded about it all, like you seem to be.
