The Life of Bon: 28 things no 20 something year old wants to hear

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

28 things no 20 something year old wants to hear

Every once in a while my brain goes totally dead with this blog.  I can't think of a single clever or funny thing to say.  That's usually when I email Taylor and beg her to send some inspiration or motivation or some kind of -ation my way.  She never disappoints.

When things get really rough I beg Taylor to write a post with me.  As if I can live parasitically off of her wit and humor.  She always says yes because she's nice like that, and that's when we get a little bit of blog magic.  And so, Daily Tay and Life of Bon present to you...



1.  Did you see that your ex boyfriend got married?  His wife is smoking hot.

2.  Do you ever get tired of throwing so much money away on rent?

3.  Oh you are majoring in (insert semi-impractical-but-you-totally-love-it major here)?  What kind of a job are you going to get with that major?

4.  I always used to think of you as a little girl, you suddenly look so old to me... (Thanks, Grandma!)

5.  Are you the last of your friends who is still single?

6.  When are you going to get married?

7.  When are you going to start having kids?

8.  No one is going to buy the cow if you give the milk away for free.

9.  Oh, you’re single?  I know someone of the opposite gender who is also single.  I can set you up.

10. Don't you think it's time you find a "real job?"

11. You know, if you fixed yourself up a little more it’d be a lot easier to meet a guy.

12. Aren't you at the age when you should stop eating crap like that?

13. How much money do you make?

14. Did you go to school for the job you have?

15. Have you thought about putting any money into retirement?

16. Do you have a 401k?

17. You’re being kicked off your parents’ insurance.

18. What kind of benefits do you get?

19. Your credit card statement is late.

20. Are you where you thought you'd be in life right now?

21. You don’t even know what it means to love until you have a baby.

22. So… what do you do all day?

23. Is that still your same car from college?

24. Did you hear Laurie is buying a house?

25. Oh don't worry about it, no one stays skinny after high school!

26. Well, heavens knows that if Janet got married you can too!

27. How long do you plan on living in this apartment?

28. What are your investment plans for the future?

What did we leave off?  What is the one thing you absolutely hate to hear?

  2. Hahaha, let me tell you, those are things, a 40 something wants to hear even less!!!
    Nr. 25 would be " Oh don't worry about it, no one stays skinny after a baby!"

  3. omg if one more person questions the practicality of my major... I will throttle someone!

  4. My favorite is: "You're so cool. I don't know why you're single" - said by guy who has no interest in making me un-single despite my "coolness." Uh duh - there's your answer!

  5. Great collaboration!!!

  6. Hahaha too funny. My whole office tells me EVERY SINGLE DAY when they see me eating junk food "Enjoy it while it lasts, because one day you wont be able to eat like that." One woman even grabbed my waist one time and said "Just taking measurements, so in a year when you are 300 pounds I'll remember when you were skinny."

    ReplyDelete
  7. Also, "when are you getting married? All the good ones get taken by 30-35 you know"

    Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  8. My additions: "You're young, can you fix my phone?" "This was probably before your time... (followed by an 80s or 90s reference)" "Most kids your age live in their parents' basement."

  10. I went through the college major questions too--- Mine was journalism!!! But I had certain family members feel the need to tell me "newspapers are a dying industry.... get out of that field now!" lol :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. oh this is so true! brilliant list. I hate when people will ask me what kid of job I will get with an English degree! And I hate when people use the words 'real job' or welcome to the 'real world'...i was unaware the last 24 years of my life weren't real lol

    ReplyDelete
  12. Haha great list!! I am there with you on the "you can't eat this crap forever!" I eat like a starving child and can't put on weight and cant put on weight--everyone swears that I'm going to wake up one day weighing 800 pounds!

  13. This is hilarious and accurate and I love it

    ReplyDelete
  14. Bahaha this is hilarious and so so accurate! As a 21 year old college student who isn't married, has zero kids, and a major that always gets a bad response all of these rang true! I absolutely hate how when I tell people I'm a secondary education major to be a high school English teacher, they say "Wow, you're brave." or "Good luck with that." Someone has to educate your kids people!

  15. "Why aren't you and [significant other] married yet?" Uh... only 2 possible answers here. Either I'm not ready or he's not ready. Either way, probably not a great topic of discussion, y'know?

    Lol - great list! #1 would enrage me and #8 is just silly and old fashioned (but I could totally picture my grandmother saying it).

  16. And, unfortunately, those questions and statements don't stop when you get to your thirties...Especially if you're still unmarried and childless...

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've been married for 6 years and have 2 kids. My mother *still* mentions my ex-boyfriends. Oh, someone I have neither seen nor talked to in the last 11 years got married, divorced, remarried, and had babies? That's nice.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I get those ALL the time. the worst one is "So what ARE you doing with your life ANYWAY??!"

  19. As someone who just turned 31, but still feels like a 20-something, this is equal parts funny and depressing! :P

    ReplyDelete
  20. I guess at 30 I don't quite qualify to fit in to the '20 something' bracket anymore :( but I still feel like I do so that's the main thing. I loved reading this, oh how true some, no, most of them are. Two of them I can relate to more than the others, the baby ones, as someone who is struggling with infertility and done numerous IVF cycles the next person to ask me 'why haven't you had kids yet' or tells me I don't know what real love is until I've had a baby might see my fist, in their face ;)

  22. How To Stop A Divorce And Save Your Marriage?(Dr.Brave).

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly email this wonderful man {bravespellcaster@gmail.com},i f you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, Thanks..

  24. WOW!! This is indeed a shocking and real Testimony i have ever seen..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH OF MAY 2014, after my husband divorced me and my marriage of 8 years was broken and i was completely heartbroken and all hope was lost because i have tried all means to bring my husband back to me after much begging and did everything possible to make sure that he comes back, but nothing worked out for me.... And i saw a tremendous testimony of this mighty and powerful spell caster called Lord Lugard on the forum.. And i saw how Lord Lugard reunited a marriage and brought the Husband of a woman back to her in just 24 hours..I never believed it, because i never heard nor learnt anything about magic before..Nobody would have been able to convince me about magic spells, not until Lord Lugard did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me and brought my husband back to me in the same 24 hours just as i read on the internet..i was really surprised and amazed when my husband came to my house and knelt down begging for my forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I am indeed short of words, and i don't know how much to express my gratitude to you Lord Lugard.. you are indeed a God sent to me and my entire life and family.. he did his work just as he guaranteed me in 24 hours and it yielded a positive result to me and i was able to get my Husband back. right now my Husband has falling so much in love with me and my kids like never before. This spell casting isn't brain washing but he opened up his eyes to see how much i love and needed him, i really don't know how best to appreciate you Lord Lugard for bringing joy into my life and family, and now i am a happy woman once again.. here is his website: http://miracletemplespells.webs.com Email: miracletemple@live.com... Mrs Shirley Brett from Texas City..

  34. I am 50 years old and my husband is also 52. I had a surgical operation and one of my ovaries was removed and the doctors told me that I would only be able to conceive by a divine miracle. God intervened and I gave birth to a baby boy who later died. After seeking for help through prayers from Dr ABU FATIMA, the gods intervened again and I conceived and to the glory of gods I gave birth to triplets, two boys and a girl. Dr ABU surprised me because one of the babies looked exactly like the one that died.” thanks to Dr Abu Fatima. contact him if you are in the same situation i pass through via email abufatima77powerspellcaster @ g mail . com or call him direct +2348164210522.
