Say Anything...Really?

Excuse me a moment while I take a swig out of my sarcastic sippy cup and ask you all…

Is there anything more deserving of a double-eye-fork-stabbing than walking into a business meeting, with a room full of people and a co-worker screaming at you from across the room…

Hey! New shirt? TJ Max $12.99 right?

Is there a court in the land who would convict me?



Oh, and I think I just did my first and last interview over at Say Anything AND got the date mixed up on top of it!!!!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure nobody will ever ask me again after this.

OMG, really??? Who says things like that????

Liz Mays on May 6, 2010 at 3:34 PM said...

Did you fire one back at her? You have a new goal to embarrass that fool.

Robin on May 6, 2010 at 3:37 PM said...

That is just tacky...but i cant wait to read your interview..Im going ova...Um if its there...wait what is the date...Im not sure if you did it yet...Im going to check..Wooo Hooo..!!...LMAO

I read your interview and it was hilarious! You're awesome.

Joann Mannix on May 6, 2010 at 4:19 PM said...

What an assbag! Seriously. I'm never on the spot with the quips, I always dwell on it for days and then, suddenly, a snappy comeback hits me. I would have said something to the effect of, "No. Mine came from_____, (insert name of fancy store). But, it was a few months ago, so it's probably made its way to the discount stores. So, I guess you shop discount, then?"


Read your interview this morning. Loved it. Except the part about the left hand lane. I'm the one behind you.

LOL!!! Oh my goodess! I can't beleive that coworker! That's justifiable homicide.

Simply Suthern on May 6, 2010 at 6:13 PM said...

I'm curious. Was she right??

Sounds like she should be working the red carpet at the grammy's. For the National Enquirer.

Would it have been as bad if she had guessed Neiman Marcus $150??

Jayne Martin on May 6, 2010 at 6:51 PM said...

I LOVE T.J. Maxx. That $12.99 shirt probably sold for $75 at Nordy's. Screw her.

And I had to visit your interview and tease you a bit because what are friends for... ;)

Bossy Betty on May 6, 2010 at 8:10 PM said...

That woman must go. Must go now.

Soo are you going to seek revenge??

Alexandra on May 6, 2010 at 11:00 PM said...

Yeah. I had some rich snooty lady call me out at a teacher's luncheon, she didnt' even precede her remark with a hello.

At the first sight of me, she says, "I saw your shirt at Target. My teenage daughter bought one in every color."

And I am sooo not a teenager, so, yeah. thanks for that.

Amanda on May 7, 2010 at 1:29 AM said...

Good reply: "Ew. Like I shop there" Would've loved to see that face. ;]

Sent over here by the Wifey. Following and took button. I'm new to this blogging thing. Come by my place!

People Who Know Me Would Say: on May 7, 2010 at 7:17 AM said...

You should have told her you stole it off a dead hooker.......or, uh, something..... :)

Tracie on May 7, 2010 at 7:30 AM said...


We're getting a TJ Maxx at the Hillbilly Mall and I'm pretty excited.

Moooooog35 on May 7, 2010 at 8:20 AM said...

I like the, "HEY! I just dropped off the same shirt at GoodWill!"


Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip on May 7, 2010 at 8:34 AM said...

Yup. That qualifies for a double eye fork stabbing for sure. She's lucky she made it out alive.

Sheila on May 7, 2010 at 9:06 AM said...

Double eye and a pitchfork up the ass!

Although, it would have made a great set-up. "New face? I saw that one in my toilet this morning?"

Jack and Alex Manning on May 7, 2010 at 10:28 AM said...

Oy! I do have a friend that has no filter and frequently does stuff like this. I like to think of it as a medical condition - poor tactless thing just can't help herself...

On the other hand there was my mother, who would buy her clothes at K-Mart and Walmart and then when someone complimented her on her outfit at one of Dad's company cocktail parties she'd proudly crow, "Why thank you, I bought it at ***mart and only paid $9.99 for it!" This was when she and Dad were really starting to hate each other and she LIVED for these moments pre-ugly-divorce.

I would've retorted "You bet! At least it's paid for already."

One Photo on May 7, 2010 at 11:12 AM said...

My response to this would have been, in my best of Absolutely Fabulous accents "Dahhhhling....this is haute couture, Marc Jacobs no less, I bought it in the fall, cost me an arm and a leg but I am so worth it. It's amaaaazing how quickly the runway fashions end up being copied so quickly these days. Of course the quality and style are nowhere near as good but I'm sure YOUR TJ Max shirt looks so right on you."

I'm with blue violet!
Destroy that idiot!

Linda Medrano on May 7, 2010 at 3:22 PM said...

What a fool! TJ Max? $12? I think NOT! That person just was trying to be funny! We know your people dress you in Queenly garb every damned day. You should have just commanded the "off with their head" and let it go at that!

Unknown on May 7, 2010 at 4:28 PM said...

What a piece of work. Pun intended. Her brain must have been a discontinued item, 70% off (I don't know who would pay for it), left on the shelf in the back collecting dust with the other irregulars. It will probably end up in an EBay auction netting a dollar, if that.

Um, first off, I do shop at TJMaxx and love it when I get a bargain. It shows how savvy I can be, especially to the hubs. Then I can stuff the loot I paid way too much for in the bottom of the bag. By then he's bored and never looks.

Claudya Martinez on May 7, 2010 at 9:47 PM said...

Totally justifiable to whip out the fork under the circumstances.

Unknown on May 9, 2010 at 7:32 AM said...

I am following back! I would totally distract the others while you go to work with the fork!

Grab An Award-see below

Finally, you do not need to be a recipient of an award to give an award!

Grab An Award – My way of awarding it forward. The only rules are: THERE ARE NO RULES (Only rule is no rules? Rule for rules? Is that a rule? I’m so confused)

And what is nicer than giving an award with no strings attached just because?

So in the spirit of fun blog awarding and ‘cause I think they’re a great way to connect and share the blog love with our awesome fellow bloggers (without the chain letter affect-they give me the willies), I have created The Divine Blogger and Rock Star Blogger Awards to grab-I know, fancy right? -(o.k. so I won't quit my day job)

Grab it and let the lucky recipient (s) know that you have given them a rule-free award and not to be afraid to pick it up on your site. Once they grab it from your site, they are free to pass it along to others (rule-free of course). And anyone can grab it from their sites to pass on as well.

Hope you all enjoy awarding it forward!

Now hurry! Go make room in your closet for all that good karma. And please get rid of those old sweatpants while you're at it! (-:

Award Love Received

Thanks so much to Lisa at (the Grandma sites got it going on yo) and Robyn at Simply Delightful and Tamara at homespunheartscandlesand Jane @agingmommyblog for this award. You guys are awesome!

Okay, here are my 10 honest things about myself:

1. I am an extremely well balanced individual

2. I am easily distracted

3. I don’t take rules seriously

4. I lied about number one (number 3 made me do it)

5. I have a short attention span

6. I often don’t finish what I sta..
