Unpopular Opnions Anyone?

My UO: I love the idea of having a cleaning lady, but I would probably never get one b/c it grosses me out thinking about someone washing our clothes or cleaning our toilets.

Ick!

     There is nothing better than coming home to an absolutely clean house, and you didn't do a thing.

    Like having to spread your legs for your husband just to get him to pick his dirty underwear up off the floor.

  • We have a cleaning lady but she does not do our laundry.

    I have no problem with her scrubbing our toilets!!!!

  • I call total BS on my SIL's "fibromyalgia." She works 12-hour shifts as a nurse, on her feet all day. Then she comes home, flops on the couch, and demands to be waited on. Literally.

    I would pay a cleaning lady to wash floors, clean bathrooms and kitchens, vacuum, dust, clean mirrors, but I would not want someone washing my clothes, because it would not be cost effective for one thing.  Washing and drying clothes is easy, and if you do a load a day or every other day and fold it right away its a good way to keep the mound of laundry under control. 

  • Mine UO is that I think people who have children before marriage shouldn't have big, prettyprincess weddings with the whole nine yards of showers, bachelorette/bachelor parties, etc. Really tacky in my opinion.

    That's obnoxious.  On the upside, at least she isn't sponging off the government.

    Maybe she should just quit her job and go on disability or live off gov. There are a lot of people who have fibromyalgia who work full time jobs...most dont have a choice.

    Why? What if it is their first marriage? Popping out a kid doesn't automatically mean that you forfeit a nice wedding with all the trimmings?  I am not in this position, but I know many women who have been.

    They got KU by a douchebag they thought was going to marry. The douchebag cheats on them leaves them all alone to care for the kid. Why does that automatically mean that they have to go to the JP?

    If you think they shouldn't have wedding/shower, etc. because they did things "out of order" - I disagree.  However, I do agree that having an unnecessarily and ridiculously expensive wedding is selfish when children and their needs (college fund) should come first.

     You could technically say that about everyone who gets married and is planning on having kids though. Following that line of thinking, no one should have a big wedding because they might get sick, or they might lose their job in a few years, etc, etc... It's all a slippery slope.

  • I get grossed out by pregnant bellies--especially when it's a tiny girl and a big beach ball bump that others find cute.  I literally feel nauseous over them, especially a side view.  I have no idea why.  I think it's because it looks painfully distorted and I feel sorry for the woman.  It looks like it hurts so much to be stretched out to there!  I know, I'm weird.

  • My UO is that people should grow up and stop going out and getting drunk all the time. I don't get why some adults can't just have a few drinks and be fine. I have some friends that have to get black out drunk everytime they drink. You are 30, why are you doing this?

    As someone who had an oops while planning a fall wedding that I ended up moving to the next year so that I could enjoy the event along with my guests, I don't really get why having a wedding to celebrate becoming husband and wife would be tacky. Why should we not get to have a big celebration because we had a baby?
