Dating: The Oh No, No List

Happy Friday! I am in great need of humor this week so I want to share this clip from NBC’s Parks and Recreation. It is funny…and kind of true!

The clip shows the character, Tom, talking about his Oh No, No list. If someone he is dating does anything on the list…it could result in an immediate breakup – harsh, but FUNNY.

Single people are notorious for having outrageous, ridiculous, – completely not based in reality, dating lists. We convince ourselves that some things just prove or disprove compatibility.

I can think of my top offenses to put on my Oh No, No lists but I will wait to read yours first. What quirky, totally unique things do you secretly judge dates on? Would you say Oh No, No to someone who hated jazz? Would it be an instant break up if they couldn’t use chopsticks?

Keep it light and fun. We can all act like “judgey jerks” at one time or another, may as well laugh about it!

I remember looking through my mama’s purse asking if I can have “stuff” to put in my purse. An ink pen, candy, loose change…that kind of stuff.

“Mother’s must’ve been getting us prepared to start carrying feminine napkins at a young age or something. What’s was up with all of us carrying tissue?” – too funny. Never looked at quite like that, but I like your spin on it. :lol:

In my LV change purse right now are my license, brown gloss, a five dollar bill, 2 debit cards, a Maggiano’s gift cards, a couple of business cards, keys to my drawer and laptop, Zantac, Neosporin (don’t ask..every since my kid was born, I keep a tube), brown gloss, .96 cents, libary card.

In my handbag is a small notebook w/pen, about $820 bucks, 2 pads, a pair of earrings, ear plugs, eyeglass case, checkbook, binder w/my healthcard cards and corporate card, a pencil, and a stack of numbers in a binder :) :)

I’m grown and to this day my purse won’t win any “what’s in your purse” contests. I never understood women who have some of everything in their purse. one of my aunts once pulled 3 cellphones, two chargers and a plastic champagne flute out of her purse. needless to say we cracked up. she had a “let’s make a deal” purse. my family cracks jokes on another aunt who once carried around pork chop sandwiches in her purse. granted she was pregnant and pork chops must have been her thing but still. i have a small wallet, small makeup kit, lotion, eyeglass case, altoids and an afro pick in my purse right now.

celisea – we were both doing inventory at the same time.

disco – I see..lol You got me on the lotion…I never carry lotion. I need a small tube. I keep a big pump lotion on my desk. I’ll grab something on clearance form TJMaxx for my desk. I aint going over $3.00 either…for my desk lotion cause folks be using it when you ain’t at work.

disco – What’s up with the altoids???

Without looking??? Hmmmm…..

My wallet (with nowhere near $820 in it!!), change purse, make-up case, sunglasses, reading glasses, Kindle, hand sanitizer, travel pack of tissues, cough drops, Advil, just-in-case feminine products, and a purse hanger because I REFUSE to put my purse on the floor!!

she always carries those big A purses and there is never any telling what she might pull out of that bag.

as for the altoids – I’d expect that question from one of the fellas. I do mints because I am not a gum chewer. I pop altoids/mentos/tic tacs whatever like they are candy.

W/O looking, in my bag is my checkbook, 2 blue squared mints, lipstick, eyebrow pencil, Cash 4 and Cash 3 slips, h.s. transcripts (I always keep on me in case I need to mail somewhere for her), wallet with a bunch of crazy stuff in it, but I know I don’t have $820. And in the zipper part, a handful of toothpicks. A must in all my purses, car keys, mirror, and some junk stuck in the corners.

Cel – usually if I’m with wifey I just look where she looks. She spots the fine ones b4 me. She thinks she knows my style. Problem is she always points out the chicks similar to her (tall n Red). Bless her heart she just don’t know.

Purse- wifey has dayum near everything in every purse. She has bout 6-7 and jus changes out the wallet with license and necessities.

My wallet is very very small. License and credit cards bout it.

@Cel…I’m not even sure the different ones I have tried. It’s been a long time. I kind of gave it up a long time ago. I can wear a bit of a chunky heel for a short while, but they still hurt. I also have bad ankles and knees from years of playing softball…

WillieD – You ain’t never told her dark women are you kryptonite? Why do we do that as women. I can spot a fine one in a minute. Think subcousciously it’s a competition thing?

Jake what’s in your purse/wallet?

Celisea

Bluzgirl – Start with some sexy 2 inch heels, slightly pointed. That will get you a skinny heel more than likely. Get a really good solid pair that can take the hard walking or up and down on the ground/pavement. Practice practice practice

Girl, put down the chunky heels and move back…lol I’m kidding sort of.

I’m not kidding, stop with the chunky heel. Makes your legs look like tree trunks!

No man purse for me Cel…but in wallet ,
CARDS-Liscence, 2 Insurance, Fishing Liscence, 3 Debit Cards, 1 Credit Card, Building Access Card,and a bunch of Business cards(some filler, some I need), about 4 receipts that I do not need that are just hanging in there until I get sick of them

@Bluz: Or you could do a platform. If you choose one that’s monochromatic, it “hides” the platform and you have the illusion of wearing a 4 inch heel, when really you’re in a 3 inch.

I do like a cute wedge, especially and open-toed one with sundresses for summer.

Leggs-there is a reason, some things should be purchased from sources,

There’s more…First Aid/CPR Cert, Dental, Medical..couple of Store Cards…and if you let me tell it, even the stuff I don’t need, I need in that wallet….lol.

y’all stil at it? i carry 3 cards. everyday visa, back up card because some places don’t take visa and one debit in case i go someplace like aldi that doesn’t take credit. i also have asst’d cards like sams club, costco, library, AAA etc.

willie – during the day my weapons are in the car. can’t risk losing a job because of the weapons policy though let the courthouse tell it my afro pick is a weapon. security at the courthouse won’t let me in because of it.

Jake – I got a little system. My debit cards have the last digits of the account on the back so I don’t get mixed up. They’re all at the same bank. CANNOT have any slip ups or boo boos…lol

jake – speaking of other other accounts. i tiraded recently re a bank telling me my account was dormant and inactive because i hadn’t used it to spend money. i was HOT because i put regular direct deposits into the account every payday (now how is that inactive?) needless to say, i’m pulling out of that bank. old busters.

disco – Speaking of weapons and company policy, a chick got fired about a month ago for bringing a taser. Don’t know how it got out she had one but a chick tossed her straight under the bus and called the exec over their team to report and said she felt threatened. No she didn’t. She bypassed the managers on that floor and took it straight up the letter. Chick had been here 22 years.

Me either. I don’t believe in doing that kind of stuff. I figure though it’s around the corner waiting on her…payback that is

Granted the chick they let go (on a different floor) was always in some mess and the queen of gossip and confusion but I still wouldn’t have done that. I figured if I have to eat and pay bills, so does everyone else.

You’re right Jake…which is how she’s gone. I don’t think I’dda delivered the blow of telling. That would eat away at my conscious.

22 years and another threw her under the bus, in these trying times. Speaking on carrying crazy things to work, a few years back I walked into the breakroom to make some tea. What do I see on the table? A bag of weed. Yep, about a quarter’s worth. Who puts weed down and forget to pick it back up? Not only that, why do you have it out in the first place?
