Quick Rant...Just Sayin'



This one is only for people On Face Book, because that is the only place I ever run across this little quandary. And the quandary I speak of is this: using the phrase "Just Sayin" after another, questionably offensive, phrase. Examples to follow.


1. It is not summer so not even Spring yet, so if you are already wearing flip flops you're an idiot. Just Sayin.


2. Dook sucks and Carolina rules forever. Just Sayin.


3. People that park in the Person-with-Child parking places at Teeter to use the Redbox are jerks. Just Sayin.


These are just a few examples of what is the most annoying thing to happen on Face Book, second only to those life affirming virtual posters that I am pretty sure would be better suited for a Guidance Counselor's office in 1994. If you say something rude or disparaging it absolutely DOES NOT negate that comment to follow it up with a "Just Sayin". It only makes it more annoying and offensive. Because you obviously really mean it and you are trying to soften the blow a little so people don't go off on you. But we all know what you mean. "Just Saying" is the "Bless your heart" of our generation. Except not nearly as endearing. Own your comments people, or don't say them at all. I'm just sayin'. 






[Note: The examples are not really from people's updates but they are the kind of thing I see on a daily basis. The first two things I could care less about. The last example I feel passionately about. I used to think those spots were redonk, but now that I have a child, I have changed my tune. So if you are parking there for any reason and do not have a child under the age of 5 with you, prepare to get the death ray stare down if I see you.]


Update: For my girl Jenn, everyone please refrain from using the phrase "at the end of the day." That one is killing her. Thanks.

  1. Oh my god! I can't stand it when people say just sayin! It annoys me so much! That and at the end of the day are the most overused, annoying things that people say or write on fb. Hope everyone reads this!

  2. Well it is what it is. And I must cop to occasionally still snagging the With Child spot if the place is crowded, despite my kids advanced age. A thousand pardons. Ginny
