Tell them that there's more than two genders and that you feel it is discriminatory if they are assigning their child a gender before the child's even discovered it for itself.

That should get you off the hook.

Fucking hell. That's a new one on me. Just an excuse for a party.

Is this another yank imported thing?

my friends are having a baby, and they're having a gender reveal party.

I like my friends, and I'm happy they're having children, but I'm struggling to find much enthusiasm for going to a party specifically to watch them pop a baloon.
If ever proof was needed that the world has gone mad, this is it. I'd refuse to go and tell them not to be so bloody stupid. Total nonsense. In fact, this irritates the hell out of me. It shouldn't but it does.

This is everything that is wrong with todays society. Nobody gives a fuck - they pretend they do as that is what is deemed socially acceptable and polite - but the truth is they don't.

A pregnant colleague - you know the type - sits with one hand permanently on the bump - came up to me and asked "guess what we are having? My reply - "18+ years of misery ?"

I blame facebook. The insistence that every minuscule aspect of people's lives should be scrutinised on it winds me up no end.

'Look at me, look at me, I am at the cinema'
'Look at me, I am eating a cornish pasty'
'Look at me, my kid has put his yoghurt pot on his head'
'Look at me, isn't my dog/cat so cute'

I don't use it anymore but I am really tempted to start questioning why people are posting such inane drivel and sharing this stuff. Do people really 'like' or care?

Just stop it, now.

*Caveat. I actually put my holiday photos from my phone on FB to clear up space on my phone.

Spot on.

I was once asked by a colleague if I had had a nice weekend - mid way through my reply he stopped me and said "to be honest I don't really care and it's only social convention and politeness that made me ask"

I loved this. And it is so true.

I know there are people on here with pets so i don't mean to cause offence but i don't understand why people refer themselves as mum or dad to their cats or dogs.

Haha, this is very true.

On a slightly different note, a women in the office was speaking to someone and clearly talking to someone about an upcoming holiday. That utterly ridiculous question 'Are you going somewhere nice?' came out.

'Nah, I always book holidays to absolute hovels.' i'm sure wasn't the answer!

I loved this. And it is so true.

We have friends who had a birthday party for their dog and even bought bloody cards for it!
