You Better Check Yo'Self...

You know what I'm going to say. Before you wreck yo'self. This morning on my commute which often gives me time to think I suddenly got all twitchy mad for a few moments. It wasn't the commute or some stupid driver either. It was the "busy" excuse. The "busy" excuse as I'll call it is used so frequently now. It's just that too; an excuse. We are all sooooooooooobusy aren't we? It's maddening and sickening. I am guilty of using this too. I often find that in lieu of writing what I'm really doing with my days and nights (working, gym, traffic, errands, changing numerous outfits/diapers, feedings, bottles, the list goes on)in an email I'll write, "H and I are busy with work/life as usual..." However, I do try not to say this as an excuse as to why I haven't called or kept in touch. I think I'm actually pretty good about that. Yes, life gets away from you and such. But let me just say this. It's an excuse. So I probably just wrecked myself right there by even typing this out in public. It's just that I'm tired of being told this. No one is truly that busy. And unless you are working for Miranda Priestly or some high level government faction, I'm going to say this, I don't want to hear it. If I do, you just might hear this from me.... a dial tone. Honestly, no one is that busy.

Now go call your mother or your friend that you have been neglecting.

That crashing noise you just heard is just me wrecking myself.

    I disagree with you on this one. I feel the "too busy" excuse is a valid one. For example, "I'm too busy at work today to get a chance to call our landlord, etc" My problem is that people abuse the "too busy" excuse because it is easy. Easy to cover up laziness with "too busy."


Thanks for commenting! It's always good to hear from a reader and not say, a robot.
