Women Griping in Panera

Pet peeve: I hate listening to women complain about their husbands. I was in Panera ages ago and listened to four women who appeared to be in their 30s and 40s complain about their husbands. They were stupid, neglectful, absent-minded, and buffoons. Perhaps the women didn’t use those words but there was lots of sighing and eye rolling and laughter.

I really wanted to pop over and say “well, at least they’re alive.”

If you don’t like your husband, don’t be married to him. If you do like your husband, don’t bad mouth him in public. Probably not in private either.

I know we often vent about things to our friends to help us feel better but let’s not make husband bashing into a recreational activity.
