Fight Back Friday

So it’s been kind of a crazy/grumpy week for the Punching Bag, so to express my frustration I thought I would write a few open letters…

Dear mother nature,

March is the start of spring.  Please be advised that you have NOT been following through with this.  It’s time for everyone to put away their winter coats and quit with this snow and freezing rain stuff.



Dear pregnancy,

Why didn’t anyone tell me in my sex education classes that there is NOTHING fun about being 8 months pregnant?  Everyone says that you can eat what you want, wear big clothes, and how exciting it is to see your child move.  But what they don’t tell you is that you don’t sleep the last month, almost everything will give you heart burn, and eventually you stretch out your maternity leggings.  If you could be over soon, that would be awesome.

Uncomfortably yours,

Mama Magan

Dear person-that-asks-too-many-questions-or-comments-on-everything-class-or-meetings,

Yes, we all know that you are intelligent and are sure that you are great at what you do, but PLEASE just put your hand down for two seconds so that we can all get out of this class or meeting and go home.  I’m sure you can talk to the instructor after class if it’s that important.

Really-wanting-to-get-the-heck-out-on-timely yours,


Dear retail businesses,

Please stop going out of business and only giving me a short notice.  What if I have gift cards that I want to use?  What the heck am I supposed to do with my free movie coupons?  If you would have just let me know a month ago that I would need to use them soon I would have rented THE SOCIAL NETWORK sooner.

Giftcard-hoardingly yours,

Mrs Vee.

Dear Mean girls,

High school is over.  Making fun of people for your own gain just makes you look petty and silly.  Do you really need to sit and gossip about things that aren’t that important like what someone is wearing or how their hair looks?  I’m sure that all the problems in the world can be solved by you sitting on your butt and complaining, so maybe you should put that to use and call up some foreign leaders.

Geekingly yours,

The punching bag

Yeah they may be snarky, yeah they may be random, but someone has to tell these people and things!  Do you have any open letters that you would like to post?  What do you want to fight back?


  1. Sorry your week has been rough :(. I hope the weekend is better.

  2. I think we could all write a few letter like these...
    Sorry on the 8-month discomfort! I had horrible reflux too. I'd point my neck and tell my hubs, "You know those nachos I ate? They're right here!"

    It totally grossed him out and that was kind of entertaining.

    Hope you have a good weekend!

  3. Loralie- I try, I try.

    Kelsey- I think life is just crazy? Maybe I can escape to a Pirate island?

    Lydia- That sounds about right! My husband looked at me yesterday and goes, "You haven't had heartburn have you?" Men...

  4. I love your post and I wish you well :)

  5. Sorry about all the discomfort! I hope you have a better upcoming week.


You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
