Re: Biggest Pet Peeve

I hate with every fiber of my being..when men think because Im 5'5" and a woman, that I am weak, helpless or incapable of doing such things as lifting a heavy garbage bag, "Can I get that for you sweetie?" "Dont hurt yourself honey" ughhhhh

It will be a sad, sad day when you can't even shake a man's hand anymore.

And might I add that any man who's THAT afraid of anything probably lacks enough testosterone to even produce children.

Too many people have asked me the same thing, and given me the same response. "Oh, is there any way to do it without having to lift weights?"

My sister actually just texted me that she saw a guy on the elliptical at her gym...doing a crossword puzzle.
The other day I saw a woman on the treadmill with sudoku. Needless to say, she was walking at QUITE the brisk pace. /sarcasm
