The Loop

I couldn't resist introducing you to Bar Refaeli.


Perhaps I'm out of the loop, but I think that calling a 13 year-old a "little bitch" is out of line.

It's not going to happen in my home again. I don't think it's one bit funny or cute. And I promise that I'm going to stand up for her if it ever happens again in my presence.

I defended her over and over these past few days. I complimented her. Told her that she was a perfect house guest. We sat on the bed upstairs chatting and laughing. She's a lovely teenager and caused not the first problem while she stayed with us.

I hope she doesn't know that her grandmother calls her that.

I certainly hope she doesn't know. One of the last things I remember my grandmother telling me was that when my mother got home to tell her she will never amount to anything, nor will her children.

C U Next Tuesday.

Bina said...

Poor thing. My ex friend calls her kids all kinds of REALLY bad names that I would never call another person, unless I really, REALLY hated them, and even then, not to their face! LOL

I think the correct term for a 13 year old is "little shit." ;-)

I'm kidding, I'm kidding. Sheesh you people are a tough crowd.

No, I don't think "bitch" is an acceptable word to use to describe a 13 year old. Especially by a parent or grandparent. If you call kids names or put them down over and over, at some point they're going to believe you and then you really will have a problem.

And, I've already been introduced to Bar Rafaeli. Not in person though. That would be awesome!

Me, I'd be bitch slapping Grandma but good.

PS I really just stopped by for the pictures. You are killing me with your daily tease of flesh here, you realize that don'tcha.

I call my adored granddaughter "the Kylie monster" and have been known to tell her she's EVIL (to which she replied, "No, you're EVIL, Grandma"), but I'd never seriously say things to hurt her self esteem.

Where's the good in that?

Her grandmother calls her a bitch? That's really awful. I think we know who the big bitch is.

That is completely uncalled for. A certain grandma needs to "grow up"!

A poor choice and a poor application of a word, methinks.

I'd like to call grandma a bitch and see if she likes it. Or I could flip her the f*nger and tell her to **** off.

In my most sweet and charming Southern accent of course. :)

ciao baby doll.

Sighs. You need to tell the old gas bag off. I refuse to let anyone call my girls names like that and I refuse to do that to my own girls either.

My first thought is what kind of woman is the Grandma? Is she the type to call her Grand Daughter that unprovoked? We don't know how the GD treats the GM when you're not there.

Scarlet said...

That's not right. How would Grandma like it if you call her an old...never mind! She should know better, seriously.

Tell grandma that "little turd" is the preferred perjorative.

Travis said...

I'd shuffle up to that bar.

James said...

That is definitely not on. Yet I think that is more common than we realise. There is a woman lives two doors away and she screams abuse at her kid sometimes, real bad words.

Dana said...

We had a come-to-Jesus moment here over a similar statement - "You are acting just like your little CU*! friend Melissa." He claimed he didn't call step daughter the "C" word, but in her mind he certainly did!

Not OK - NEVER OK!

Bond said...

Her attitude is, most likely, based upon the attitude and reactions she receives from others.

You treated her with respect...her grandmother (even if the girl does not hear the words) treats her horribly...

Grant said...

Keep defending her. In five years she'll be totally legal.

Ashleigh said...

Good for you. Glad you're there to back her up.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

words like that become so generic and people use them so matter of fact lately.

Can't please everybody...and some insist on forgetting what 'tact' is all about...
