Pay Attention Princess!

4 Apr

Do you own a baby tee with the letters P-R-I-N-C-E-S-S emblazoned across it? Does it include the optional blinged out tiara graphic?

If so, I have a question for you.

You do realize that you are not, in fact, a real princess right?

Should I repeat that? You are NOT a real princess. In America, there


Do you need a moment?

Remember to breathe.

Inhale.      Then exhale.


Having trouble coping? Here’s a tip: Get over yourself. You’re annoying and not as hot as you’d like to believe.


Now, I’m not talking to the cutie-patootie little (like 10 and under) girls who like to dress up in fake pearls and poufy skirts. They’re adorable.

I’m talking to the woman on her phone, ignoring the cashier. Rude. I’m talking to the 40-year-old proudly sporting her Hello Kitty tattoo. Really? You’re serious with that one? I’m talking to the woman with her nose turned up at the nail lady. Forget the stick, this woman’s got a whole tree trunk lodged where the sun don’t shine. She wears about about 10 layers of make-up (I guess I should consider that a favor). She walks and talks like she’s better than everyone else. She has no problems cutting you off; her time is more valuable than yours. She thinks she’s royalty.

If you are that woman, do me a favor. Think about a real, modern-day princess. Diana comes to my mind first. If asked to describe Diana (or at least her public image), you’d probably come up with words like:

  • Gracious
  • Charitable
  • Modest
  • Humble
  • Reserved

Words you most likely would not use:

  • Arrogant
  • Trashy
  • Obnoxious
  • Rude

Do you see what I’m saying?      No?
I’m not surprised. You don’t strike me as the brightest crayon in the box so I’ll break it down for you.

Real princess:      nice, caring, well-liked
You:                         a jerk

There is a difference between self-confidence and self-absorption. Learn it.



I have no idea what this has to do with weight loss, but I feel better.

        She definitely sounds like she qualifies.

      This broad I saw while grocery shopping. I think the fact that she had her young teenager in toe made it even worse. You could tell she was just like mama. I think I’ll start a campaign – Stop Princess Cloning!!

    I agree!! Yeah what happened, did you run into a “princess” at the Target?

      Even better – she was a Food 4 Less. Because, you know, that’s *the* place to grocery shop. ::eye roll::
