Things That Suck More Than Mondays

... Big, Fat, Mouths.

I'm talking about people who say mean things because it apparently makes them feel good, and then think they can take it back later. I'm also talking about people who speak without thinking and say careless, hurtful things, then claim innocence.

To which I say,

You're responsible for what comes out of your mouth. We hold young school children responsible for what they say, so why not adults? I don't think apologies are acceptable consequences for verbal unkindness.

"Let the punishment fit the crime," is the old saying. Anybody have ideas?

Romance is sexy, but big fat mouths, notsomuch.
