Lazy: A Definition

1.09.2012

in media,ranting,things that make you go argh,Uncategorized

People who are lazy:

1) Anyone who buys pre-washed salad greens*

      *That would be me

2) Able-bodied adults who take the elevator down one floor.

3) Screenwriters employing the line, “looks like we’ve got company…”

4) TV producers who run tired stories pitting working moms against stay-at-home moms to guarantee a pathetic little ratings bump.

 

People who are not lazy:

1) Stay at home moms.

 

I hope that clears things up, Anderson.

If the package says “pre-washed” I don’t wash again.

True story: Anderson asked me to come on a few months ago to discuss my life as a former internet mean girl.

I turned him down.

He’s a shit-stirrer.

Granted, a very sexy silvery fox shit-stirrer, but still.

An internet mean girl?

Sadly, yes. On TheBump.com message boards, I was pretty sharp with my words. Not one of my finer moments in life & one I regret horribly.

Then I had my kid, grew up & grew a little perspective on what really matters in life. (see also: compassion) Bitching about how other people feel about their pregnancy really doesn’t top my priority list anymore.

I say he’s a shit-stirrer, though, because it was something I had already apologized publicly for & even spoken privately to many of the girls who I hurt. He wanted me to be on there & pull other people on & turn it essentially into Jerry Springer from the sounds of it.

I totally take the elevator down one floor. But only because Jumbster’s wheelchair doesn’t do well with stairs. And it seems kinda wrong to send him in an elevator by himself while I go jog the stairs.

I also buy pre bagged salads.

But it all balances out since I never watch Anderson. I like my journalists to be less doltish.

As someone who was a “guest” on Anderson’s show I can tell you either he has a) NO CLUE what the hell his producers are scheming behind the scenes in the green room or b) HE has EVERY CLUE which means he’s NOT the journalist with integrity that we’d like to believe he is but I signed an NDA which I didn’t have a real chance to read- because they shoved it in my hand seconds before I was escorted to my seat and so I am not allowed to regale you with what REALLY goes on in that green room

Stay at home moms lazy? Wow. I generally like Anderson Cooper so I’m sad to see him discuss this crap. I’m a stay at home/work at home mom. I do most of the housework, most of the cooking, I run 2 businesses, and I homeschool one of our kids while the other attends public school by choice.
Now I do buy pre-washed salad greens. I think I at least deserve those ;)

Ah geez. Did he really say that? I’m sort of glad I missed that. Anyone who thinks a SAHM is lazy has never taken care of a child.

I buy prewashed salad greens AND pregrated cheese (since my 4.5 year old wants to sprinkle grated cheese on EVERYTHING). I came across someone railing away about how lazy you must be to use pregrated cheese… and I thought about how I generally only have 30 minutes between walking in the door and getting dinner on the table, and I just laughed. People judge on the craziest things.

I’m sure he didn’t say it. I’m sure it’s the teaser copy for a good ol’ debate that he’s moderating on his show. I can only hope that cooler heads prevail. Even Dr. Phil took down a well-known mom blogger on his show who insisted that working moms were child abusers.

Portia January 9, 2012 at 10:06 am

You know, normally I like Anderson Cooper. Love his international coverage and his coverage of crises like Katrina. This is why I will give him the benefit of the doubt this ONE TIME and assume some dimwitted junior producer’s idea was greenlighted because all the more experienced and creative producers were on vacation. Complete BS.

Oh, and I used to buy bagged lettuce all the time but found that it went bad a lot faster (plus it was so much more expensive) than just buying the whole leaf stuff, spinning it in my spinner and bagging it in Zip Locs. I do it once week and it lasts all week. I do still take the floor down one level because I’m scared of office stairways. I’ve seen one too many Law and Order SVU’s, I guess.

Paul S. Gumbinner January 9, 2012 at 10:19 am

Stay at home moms are definitely not lazy. When my kids were little, everyone in the house got sick, so I stayed at home to take care of the family. Two sick small children and a wife who was too fluey to mind the children.

Two days went by. I was exhausted. At the end of the second day, when everyone was still sick, I announced that I didn’t care how much it cost, but that we had to find someone to come in and take care of the kids.

I never complained again. Anderson Cooper and the other idiots on the show should spend the day taking care of children; they would change their minds.

This crap is insane and I don’t understand why it keeps coming up…oh wait, I do–because here we are all again talking about it.

Ugh. Besides, don’t we all get to be lazy sometimes? I’m sure Anderson sits on the couch and watches a game every now and then. Getting to be lazy is a reward for any parent–working or staying home. It’s a perk we all deserve.

I don’t even understand why people need to keep debating which is harder. I’ve done both. When I had my first, I left teaching for 6 years (& had a bunch more kids). I went back to work when my 4th child was 9 months old and managed to have one more child in the meantime. Staying at home and working both have pros and cons. Neither is easy. While I didn’t have a job during my SAHM phase, I surely didn’t find time to be lazy. In either case, I’ve yet to conquer the laundry. Maybe when the 5 kids are grown??

On the other hand, you have more pull than I do, so maybe he’ll step up to the plate. I’m starting to see a trend on his show of very lazy, sensationalist stories about women’s issues …

I am really disappointed by Anderson’s dirty tricks, does he think women begin watch his show by this kind of negative advertising. That is so hostile towards women, does he not know any substantial women who have a healthy message for the world. Most famous women that he interviews are ones that perform in their underwear. Now he is bringing up prostitution in a very insensitive way on twitter. We should report his tweets and inappropriate.

Oh for heaven’s sake, are we not past this shit yet? I’m a SAHM, and I adore my life. I’ve had to draw a paycheck working outside the house and I hated every second. As far as I am concerned, I think working moms either need the job or are overachievers. I admire those women for their sacrifice and/or drive.

I have to believe these women have no friends. I say that because, not one of my friends does their parenting just the way I do it. But what I do realize is that they parent the kids they have and I parent the kids I have, and I bet if we swapped our parenting would change too. That these women can’t imagine other families have differing needs is just idiotic.

What I really don’t get is…so, what if someone else is lazy? How does that affect some stranger’s workload or kids or marriage/family?

What’s it to you, lady on television?! I mean, if someone at work is lazy, sure that might affect me directly in that I have to do more or resent that they make the same money and do less or the like. But generic other person with no link to me?

Is it really just “think I work really hard, so you should too?” You know what? I think everyone has to read the same books I do, cook the same meals, do their laundry in the same way, too. Or they’re LAZY.

Do we want people who aren’t currently in the PAID workforce coming in to take away jobs from people already there right now? (If they can find a job to take away.)

Or do they just think that if they point out someone who they think is leading a lazier life that person will come and clean their house, cook their meals and watch their kids? If this the case, I’m on the hunt for someone lazier than I am to come and clean up this place.

But otherwise? What’s it to you? People can choose to live however they manage to get by, eh, and if you hate how much/what you do, change YOUR life not someone else’s!

You know, these endless attempts to stir the pot of divisiveness between moms (SAHM is better, no WORKING is better, no make your own babyfood and homeschool and skydive for fun is better…) they make me crazy. I mean, maybe the AC show(s) are just the brainchild of a loser junior producer, but then I get paranoid: if we keep squabbling over the crap that doesn’t matter, then we don’t have the time or energy to think about the stuff that DOES matter, like, say, universal healthcare or paid maternal/paternal leave or good public schools in EVERY neighborhood or…(it’s a very long list). Of course, changing this big issues would require a deep re-evaluation of cultural priorities, and god knows THAT isn’t good television. Better to get some parents on the show who will scream at each other. Yeah, that’ll boost the ratings.
Sigh. I’m going to go sit on the couch and eat bonbons for the rest of the day, because god knows, as a mom, I’ve got nothing but idle time on my hands.

I will admit to having lazy days (like when I got the rest of the Hunger games trilogy and did nothing but read it cover to cover – except for doing the dishes, the school drop-off and pickup and making dinner, that is.)

#2 has always gotten to me- why someone cannot walk DOWN a flight of stairs (provided, of course, that they don’t have health reasons that prevent them from doing so) is beyond me. In fact, it seems like a waste of time, since by the time the elevator arrives, you could have already walked downstairs. I hate time inefficiency.

I have been a working mom, and a SAHM, and I believe that they are both equally difficult. I’m a teacher, so I consider myself both- during the school year, I am a Working Mom, but during the summer and other holiday breaks, I am a SAHM with my kids.

I will tell you that before a holiday or summer starts, I am usually stressed beyond belief and cannot WAIT to have time off to spend with my kids.

On the other side, by the time the holiday or summer is over, I am usually more than happy to go back to work!

One is not easier or harder than the other, and they both have their highs and their lows. But the fact of the matter is that they are both JOBS and require a huge amount of work, energy and organization.
