Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be rude....

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen seriously!  So I have a little reminder in my TO DO list every two weeks to do a blog post and as the time gets close, I seem to be searching for a good topic and then LO and BEHOLD, one presents itself.  :)

So, yes, it is another bus riding story.  I seem to get some good material there.  So the other day, I was sitting in the bus shelter waiting for the bus to arrive.  And a group of three teenagers came in.  And they were being typical teenagers, loud and obnoxious.  I kind of ignored them...since they are teenagers.  One bus stopped....TOO FULL.  SMB doesn't like to stand on the bus (can't, in the heels that I wear).  And the three boys waited as well.  So the next bus approaches, and it is fairly empty so I stand up.  Two of the teenage boys literally PUSH me out of the way to get first in line to get on the bus first.  I am literally standing there with my mouth open.  They both get on the bus and I am standing there, the third boy finally realized how rude they were being and he stepped back for me to get on the bus.  I did stay thank you to him.

This isn't just about the fact that these are boys and chivalry sometimes seems to be dead.  This is about common courtesy, I was there waiting for the bus well before those boys.  So here is the point ladies and gentlemen seriously who are parents, please teach your children some manners in public, even if you aren't there to supervise them.  There is no excuse for rude behavior and children should be taught appropriately.  I know that my sister would never let her son act like this in public.  And additionally ladies that are moms to boys, teach them to treat ladies appropriately and how to act like gentlemen.

And just on a side note, ladies and gentlemen seriously who are parents, not everyone in the world thinks your child is wonderful, so be mindful of them in public, letting them scream and run around in a restaurant, isn't cute.  Well behaved children are much cuter.  :)

Everything else here in my world is status quo.  RCH Jr is good.  Work is great.  Jazzercise is good as well.  Heading to Scottsdale for a sorority conference next week.

So it's summer time, remember sometimes less is not more ladies seriously, keep everything covered up appropriately.

Are you really wearing that to work?

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen....already making good on my mid year New Year's Resolution and am posting regularly.  YAY ME!  Happy to report that everything is back to normal after having been gone for almost a month.  Also happy to report that I am back teaching regular Jazzercise classes.  YAY ME!  Cuz there is New Zealand and "relationship" weight that needs to come off quickly.  BOO ME!  The good news is that my classes are literally 1.5 miles from my house.  And now my whole life....Work, Home, Jazzercise, SBUX, Walgreens, Dominicks, Nails are all within 10 miles of my house.  I think this is the first time this has happened since I graduated from college.

With my office being so close to my house, I have been taking the bus to work, which as you can imagine does create lots of great ladies seriously blog material.  First of all, let me say to the people that ride the bus, stop being so EFFING rude, don't put your bag on the seat so one can sit next to you, don't put your suitcase in front of a seat so no one can sit in the seat.  And gentlemen, I am sorry, I do not believe chivalry is dead (right Mattie?)....get up and offer your seat to the ladies, even the not so attractive ones (my RCH Jr would always offer his seat to the pretty ladies).

Second of all, and for my regular readers, you know I preach this A LOT.  LADIES!  Dress appropriately for work.  I have a pretty casual office so I am lucky, and can wear open toed shoes, sleeveless tops, ETC....but I am sure most of you can guess that I am still appropriately covered up at the office.  Some of the things that these women wear to work, I wouldn't even wear to the club on a Saturday night (much to RCH Jr's chagrin).  Case in point, I saw a young pretty woman the other day wearing skin tight skinny pants and a open weave top (so think very open crochet patten) with ONLY a bra.  I could see the full pattern of her bra and her belly button.  Is that appropriate for the office?  I don't think so.  Come on, put on a tank top underneath.  Ladies seriously, what they say is true....dress for the job you want.  And to the cute lady on the bus, the job you are telling me your want is stripper.  So there you go.

So summer and festival time is upon us in Chicago.  Although you wouldn't know it from the weather! So stay tuned for more fashion advice from me.
