Okay. Think of this as an intervention. Stop the madness, people.

Remember when someone came up with “Throw Back Thursday?” And everyone thought, “How fun! I want to post old pictures, too!” And all the little soldiers fell in line and started posting old pictures every Thursday.

Now this shit is just getting out of hand. Now we have “Flashback Friday” and “Way Back Wednesday,” too. WE GET IT. You like posting old pictures of yourself! I don’t blame you. I was younger, skinnier and apparently having more fun in the past as well, but that doesn’t justify inventing stupid names for every day of the week! (Whoever started “Man Crush Monday,” “Woman Crush Wednesday” and “Selfie Sunday” deserve a public flogging. Also, we should bring back public floggings. And “Selfie Sunday?” Really? I have a 20-year-old daughter. EVERY day is “selfie” day. Which is why I nicknamed my daughter Vanity Smurf.)

Vanity Smurf

Here’s a thought. If you run across an old picture you are certain will delight the Facebook/Twitter/Instagram masses…post it! <GASP!> How can I possibly post an old picture if it isn’t a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday??? Figure it out, Rebel. Time to forge your own way in the world.

Welcome to “This Shit Has To Stop Thursday.”

    I am sooo on board for This Shit Has To Stop Thursday…..I’d even go for a little Fuck You Friday too

    • September 4, 2014 at 4:21 pm

      Perfect. Pretty sure I’ve got a photo for that.

      Thanks. I get the feeling other people have had this thought as well πŸ˜‰

    Reblogged this on Truth Shall Set You Free So Don't Be A Crybaby and commented:
    So we’re going to officially start TSHTST better known as This Shit Has to Stop Thursday and maybe a FUF aka Fuck You Friday. Erin is a genius

    You are my new hero. And can we start a petition on bringing back flogging?

    • September 4, 2014 at 4:59 pm

      Thanks and yeah – that’s long overdue.

    Utterly agreed! Sometimes, something is overdone – or overplayed in the case of songs on the radio.

    • September 4, 2014 at 7:50 pm

      Totally agree with that as well. More is not always better, people! πŸ˜‰

  6. September 4, 2014 at 8:36 pm

    I’m agree completely! Seriously, what the hell is wrong with people? And if we get public flogging, can all these people who feel that spelling is no longer relevant be the first floggees?? Please? And I am fairly certain I am the last person on earth that refuses to take selfies…

    • September 4, 2014 at 8:38 pm

      Hahahaha…I, too, am anti-selfie. We should start a support group.

    Social media at its worst…..people seem to be losing any ability to think for themselves! Thanks for stepping up to the plate of sanity!

    • September 5, 2014 at 2:47 am

      Yep. Here to bitch for the greater good.

    I love the Vanity Smurf πŸ™‚

      Seriously. Teenage girls.

    I think you have too much free time to be upset over hashtags… I expected more from you Erin, I expected more.

    • September 5, 2014 at 11:04 pm

      Oh, you have no idea the depths to which my pettiness goes. And it’s actually a gripe about creating theme days…not hashtags. Which either makes it more justifiable or more pathetic – I’m not sure which.

    I’m-a-gonna start Spare Me Sunday! That’s when I lie in and pretend the rest of this crazy world doesn’t exist! πŸ˜›

    • September 8, 2014 at 3:21 pm

      That’s pretty much my goal every Sunday…I just didn’t know what to call it πŸ˜‰

  12. September 10, 2014 at 9:17 pm

    I think of just downloading people’s selfies, going on Shutterfly and making them an album. Give it to them at Christmas and go, “there you go you ass-hat, hundreds of the same pose…now knock it off”

    • September 10, 2014 at 9:20 pm

      hahahahahahahaahahahahahahaha. Oh. That made me so happy.

    I could throw my support to a Friday Flogging but I’d hate to limit us to just one flogging day per week.

    • October 29, 2014 at 4:45 pm

      Floggings should be optional every day of the week. I agree.

  14. November 4, 2014 at 1:59 pm

    TPT: Throat Punch Thursday. My personal favorite.

    • November 4, 2014 at 4:58 pm

      See? An idea I can get behind. πŸ˜‰

  15. December 10, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    great post. May I include “Transformation Tuesday” for the workout junkies? But I must admit, I’m guilty of participating on Sunday’s…SMH

    • December 10, 2014 at 5:25 pm

      Well, I’m more of a Wine Wednesday kinda girl myself, but whatever floats your boat πŸ˜‰

    Okay, that was great. I googled WTF is FBF and I got you! I don’t usually follow the bloggers.. I get it, but I don’t follow it, but I’ll give it a shot with you. I appreciate the candor and your sense of humor. Thanks for the chuckle.

    • December 4, 2015 at 3:49 pm

      Well thank you! 😊
