More ads mentioning parental status when it's irrelevant.

Now I notice how every commercial is totally focused on (usually single) Parunthood. The latest one I noticed is for Home Advisor dot com.

The man in casual work type clothes goes"I'm pretty handy around the house, but the last thing I wanna do now that I have kids is spend a Saturday Afternoon putting in a toilet" Well, I disagree dud. Put the toilet in yourself so you can save money toward your kids college fund instead of having a fun day out w/ the bratz. Let your kyds have their own friends and play free ranged so they have their own life and you have yours. Also, you putting things in and fixing the house is being a good role model for your kids, teaches them how youre self sufficient so maybe they will be too one day. Once the bratz get a bit older, they could help u with that toilet and that teaches them something about home ownership and fixing things, and saving money. Family time doesnt have to equal fun time all the time, it is living and fixing your goddamn house. Being an adult is being responsible, not shitting kids out and amusing them all weekend.

I mean they will squeeze parunthoood in absolutely everything where they wouldnt before. Debt Stoppers the single mom wants to get her debt status in better control so she can focus on being a better mom. EVERYTHING is about being a better parent. The only reason you should get super cheap car insurance is you dont want to get pulled over and go to jail, because you have kyyyds. Not because you could kill someone w/ your car and need the coverage to cover the deceased bills, etc! The only reason you want to be in a good mood when you come home from work and have a good dinner on the table isnt for yourself but for your kyyyds, so go get an education at the local business school so your kyds can have a better life. Funny thing is when I was young, those business school ads focused on young slackers watching TV(springer) and playing video games all afternoon, now they seem to be directed to the young, usually minority, single moo.

just so sick of it.
How about he uses the time installing a toilet as quality time with the shitlings and teach them how to install a toilet? I spent the summer between second and third grade building a new patio with my dad. It sucked at the time, but I'm glad for it now. Maintenance and DIYing are things generally not taught in school; either you learn at home or have to take extra-curricular classes. Teach the kids how and when to do a cost-benefit analysis in terms of doing the labor yourself or hiring somebody to do it.

Or you can just pay somebody an unnecessary $300 in labor + parts to do something you could've done on your own, but going to the park with the kids just couldn't wait for another day.

- Dr. Yi Suchong, Bioshock

"Society does not need more children; but it does need more loved children. Quite literally, we cannot afford unloved children - but we pay heavily for them every day. There should not be the slightest communal concern when a woman elects to destroy the life of her thousandth-of-an-ounce embryo. But all society should rise up in alarm when it hears that a baby that is not wanted is about to be born."
- Garrett Hardin

"I feel like there's a message involved here somehow, but then I couldn't stop laughing at all the plotholes, like the part when North Korea has food."
- Youtube commentor referring to a North Korean cartoon.

"Reality is a bitch when it slowly crawls out of your vagina and shits in your lap."
- Reddit comment

"Bitch wants a baby, so we're gonna fuck now. #bareback"
- Cambion

Oh whatever. Abortion doctors are crimestoppers."

I've heard installing a toilet is easy. Think it is always a great idea for kids to know how to clean everything and do basic maintenance once they are old enough. If for no other reason than they may not be able to afford calling a specialist to take care of every problem and better to learn from parents than when you're clueless and alone and something in your house breaks or stops working. Some adults can barely sort laundry.

If he is decent at replacing the toilet and they start early enough they can go to a park together afterwards.

I see the ones with the single moos or duhs on the bus saying they have a car, but it was either pay the car insurance or feed the sprogs. In real life some of them would just keep driving with no insurance.

Why not install the toilet, it's better than having to take them to park with all the Pampers they will still be wearing when they're 3, 4, --- 6?

I'm so happy that I cut the cord forever on TV and got addicted to kindle books instead. I see a lot of drug commercials at work. Sometimes I fantasize to take a hammer and destroy the TV at work.

My dad watches the news mostly, so I don't mind listening to it while on my computer.

Edit: I forgot to mention that many of my non-fiction books such as camping, hiking, kayaking, finance/budgeting, minimalism, and going back to college ALL talk about the famblee unit and kyds. I guess despite my ethnic background being an asexual, single, virgin, wannabe forever alone, childfree woman is a true minority.

I haven't had cable since it was free in college. Also noticed the drug commercials anytime I'm near a TV. What is with those? And more disturbing is how NORMAL regards them. They make me feel outrage. And that is without the added message most of them have about how important the adult breadwinner's health is because of....kids or grandkids!
and the additional wonder about the constant drug ads is the ambulance-chaser ads that come after. Where the lawyers solicit you to sue the drug companies for your injury "or death" (an amusing picture) from the drug!

My hubby says "stop all the expensive drug ads and lower the cost of the drugs"

Those ads are annoying. If a dr knows you need the freekin' med then let them prescribe it. Now we have all these people asking their dr about all these drugs... and probably insisting they get an Rx for them. Then they get side effects and get meds for that...and another side effect and another med. These ads are pushing legal drugs IMO. Most people hate them, laugh at them, and some will become scared that they have ailments they don't have... because they want to feel like all those people in the commercials who are dancing around with their kyds and grandkyds after taking the stuff.

This shit is not legal in Europe but I have seen those commercials on visits to the states. I think Last Week Tonight or perhaps it was the Daily Show did a segment on prescription drugs in the US. Some huge amount of money is spent on advertising, and advertising to patients accounts for some small percentage of the total costs...most of it is spent bribing and pressuring doctors.

Anyone see the e-harmony ad aimed at single moms seeking love not just for themselves but for their child as well. And what kind of guy goes on online dating sites specifically looking for a ready made family? I'm not painting all of these men as pedos, but it is still kind of icky to me.
yeah, just the endless "I'm not doing this for me, but for the KKEEYYUUD(s)!" And it is creepy, because any man or woman who is LOOKING for a mate with kids, well, I don't know? The cliché of the pedo or otherwise abusive/neglectful/scornful step dad are there for a reason. And then there's the deadbeat ad re: some either finance or lawsuit company that says "I needed this money to pay bills and buy food...(uh)..for my kids" And the broad is , ahem, rather heavy. So, she's not eating this food or what? And the other guy at the end says what sounds to most people (read the comments) "They killed a man to get me [what I was owed, or something]". Apparently, he is actually saying "they killed it, man" but the website has dozens of people commenting on why he says they killed someone.

Some of the best times in my life were spent with my dad doing chores. We maintained my grandmothers lake cabin in the winter and had to put new flooring in the kitchen. At 10 years old I was walking on floor beams. So many things he taught me. I was not allowed to learn to drive until he had me change a tire. And if we had a problem fixing something and his temper would start to flare, he would stop what we were doing and say "We're being Polish." Then he would crack a beer and think about it. After a couple of minutes he would have an Ah HA! moment and we would continue on the project with the better idea he came up with after slogging down a Genny Cream Ale.

I really miss him.
