Ever hear that? Um, how annoying. No I SHOULDN’T be more like ANYONE! First of all if you’ve ever said that to someone and actually thought it would help them in some way – hate to break it to ya…that doesn’t help anything, and furthermore, it pisses people off. No one likes to be compared to someone else, much less be expected to be like someone else.
Besides we have enough of that, people are already following the latest commercial, watching what the commercials tell them too, etc. We are an automated people with no stimulation to our brains and intellectual side unless we seek it out.
Screw following the crowd and blending in. This is my town baby and I’m striping it green!
Sorry I got a little carried away there. I swear, had I been born in the times of the Great Janis Joplin and Woodstock and bras being burned and women talking back to those men who used to think being abusive was “laying down the law”, I would have been some kind of Hell raiser!
I want a Bentley Lord, won’t ya please buy me one?
Don’t be like anyone else and give a dirty look if someone ever says that to you because they deserve it. However if you hear someone pretending to be you, based on the situation it could either be flattering or insulting.
Example…My sister in law came over Sunday and her son and daughter came too of course, during the course of them playing with my son, Alexis, my neice in law was not allowed entry to the bedroom – it was some sort of game they were playing. Anyways, I hear Alexis say at the door, “This is Sabrina, ya’ll are going to get a spanking if you don’t open this door.”
I almost fell out of my chair! I told them I was mean so they wouldn’t act up, which worked of course, but apparently came back to bite me! I really thought that it was hilarious, I am a strict mom but come on I don’t spank other people’s children! But I did go say something to her about it, because she was lying to the kids on the other side of the door and trying to use intimidation. Ha! Me intimidating. I guess to them I am. LOL.
So yeah, I thought it was cute so I wasn’t insulted. But being like someone else is ridiculous and all you’ll do is lose yourself, and not like Eminem.
