Trash Talk in Today's World

I recently was looking for some carafes on the internet for a luncheon I wanted to give so I perused several websites finding them. In my search I found one that offered mugs with what I consider filthy language. The mug was stamped with "Have a f*ing good day". There were other mugs with trashy talk on them also. I was stunned because this is a very popular store—both at malls and online. I'll not be shopping at any of their stores again. We don't use that kind of language even though it's commonplace among adults and teens today. We're pretty clean mouthed and I refuse to talk trash even if most of the population does. It's getting ugly out there! What is happening to decency any more? Someone has to stand up for right and tell people they won't tolerate that kind of language. Hubby did.

Back when we lived in California, he was working with a man who was a customer of hubs' large computer related company. The man called him one day and started spouting obscenities. Hubs warned him if he uttered one more obscene word, he'd hang up on him. He did and hubs hung up the phone. The customer called the head of the company and complained. The head of the company came to hub's office and tried to get him to call the man and apologize. He refused and said he'd quit before he would do that. The customer must have been informed because HE called hubby back and apologized for his language. It just shows you how they realize they're in the wrong. But hubs will not tolerate filthy language around him and will walk out of a conversation that includes it.

Stand up for right!

Off my soapbox so on with looking at delicious pictures.

See how those little hanging lanterns teamed up with a lace tablecloth can make a delightful tent for an afternoon, either for you or the little munchkins.

That BoHo look again. I'm not a devotee of it though.

I like this little pink tin and have looked all over the internet trying to find one with no success. If you know where some are, please let me know. I think they're adorable.

This is an adorable living/family room.

Another "cool" looking living room. Looks like it might be in Florida because they have a lot of tile floors there. Californians like their carpet!

Another innovative tent hideaway. How do they think of these darling ideas?

If I have stairs, I'd do this exact same thing. It's darling with that shelf displaying what would be empty space in most homes.

  1. Three cheers Connie, you are right, language like that is disgusting. We once had a very good builder who blasphemed in every sentence. We had to ask him politely not to, telling him that it hurt us to hear the Lord's name profaned. He was quite thoughtful about it.

  2. I was in dream land looking at some of those pictures.
    I really like those 3 tins with the poka dot lids are they just a picture or are they yours?

  3. I am with you on the obsenity they print on things these days and get away with it...not to mention the ones who use it. I like to add cute little cartoons to my facebook page, but as I have gone through several sources of them, I am appalled at what filth they print or show on there! I am just thinking of getting off face
    book for is getting so ugly......
    Now..that said...I loved the pictures you posted. Those living rooms reminded me of MINE so I loved them!!!
    All of the pictures you posted were charming! I look for them every day on your blog. And now I have found out I CAN leave comments again, under my Google account...for a while I could not leave any for you!!!
    Have a fun up-coming weekend....

  4. I don't use those type words either and cringe when relatives do. I have cousins who swear every other word. It drives me crazy. Good for hubs for hanging up. I would have done the same. When I worked at the Miss Dig (they send the utilites to flag lines in property) I was told that if a person is using bad language we were allowed to ask them to stop or we would hang up and then we were allowed to hang up on them! I found that to be a great policy. I got lucky, I never had a bad mouth customer.

    I love the pictures of the tins. We have stairs in the house but I have a trilevel so the stairs are next to each other and no room for such a lovely shelf.


  5. Connie,
