Valentines Day blows

I want to hear a shout out from everyone who hates this stupid excuse for a holiday. Seriously, if you read this blog, you need to post so that I know I'm not the only one who hates it.

5. Crappy songs on the radio

I don't often listen to the radio, but since my cd player...er.. I mean tape deck... er.. I mean 8 track doesn't work anymore, I've been forced to listen to the radio lately. And even though it's not valentines day, there are a ton of ads for it already, and even worse is they keep playing depressing crappy songs. Even bands like the Backstreet boys are getting air time... I hate today..

4. Gifts

The only reason I'm glad that I'm single on valentines day is that I don't have to go out and stress about buying that "perfect gift". Listen guys, no matter what you do your girlfriend is going to be annoyed with what you get her. It might be "too cliche'", or you "spent too much money", or "that engagement ring should have been given to me on a day that wasn't already valentines day, are you trying to get out of celebrating our love an extra day a year!!! What is the matter with you, you are so insensitive, I'm ONLY GOING TO GET TO DO THIS ONCE IN MY LIFE AND YOU GO AND DO SOMETHING AS STUPID AS...... (insert random angry girl comment here)

3. Mushy couples

It's bad enough that those of us who are single have to be reminded of this by the commercialism of this holiday, but now we have to walk around watching everyone who is in a relationship, instantly fall in love, even if they met each other more than five minutes ago. If I see one more couple smush their nose together, or stare into each others eyes, I'm going to vomit... on their faces....

2. The Flower shop

Guys have you ever tried to find flowers on valentines day? It seems that every guy (no just the ones who have forgotten, or couldn't tear themselves away from sportscenter until the last minute) is in the flower shop at the last possible minute. I remember the last time it was valentines day, and I didn't think it was a big deal because I had only been seeing the girl for a few weeks... turns out it was a big deal. So I rushed to the only place that was still open at 7pm.... yep... Shoppers Drug Mart. There had to be at least 50 guys in there fighting over cards, chocolates.... fake flowers, whatever. It was amazing, I wanted to stand back and watch, but instead I ended up arguing with a fat guy over a box of 20 dollar chocolates (marked up from 99 cents).

1. Happiness

Call me a cynic, call me a jerk, call me whatever you want. But if you're happily married, happily in a relationship... happy in general... then I hate you. I hate you and all that stands for happiness in this world. Let the flood of angry comments begin..

Well Hendy, I am in a relationship but completely agree that Valentine's is a crappy made-up holiday. In fact I told my boyfriend; no flowers, no supper out, no gift; that a card is more than enough! I have a lot of like minded friends, so based on your last blog i'll see if any of them have a urination fetish and let you know! Anyways, maybe you should celebrate an Un-Valentine's day and get yourself some good old McDonald's, whatever makes you happy!

First of all, respect for not jumping on the chance to call me a gay/loser/cynic/whatever you might want to insult me with. Secondly, I have to ask you this, and hopefully you want turn on me like so many anonymous posters before. But are you going to be a little upset with your boyfriend if all he does is give you a card. Based on my experience, it seems that when a girl says "don't do something", what she actually means is "dont' do any of those things, I want something better, and if you dont' do at least that then I know how much you care about me". Just a thought.. feedback is always nice.

Actually Hendy I am rare breed, I honestly don't want anything more than a card. I know he loves me, he shows me in so many more ways, that I don't need him to go crazy about some made up holiday. In fact the only reason I even say a card is that when everyone else asks what we did, then I can say we just exchanged cards. It is also from a frugal standpoint, we are trying to save money, so why would he buy me flowers that are $40.00 on Valentine's, that would be $10.00 any other day. I remember being single and completely agreeing with the whole crappy Valentine's idea and now that i'm attached I still think it is pretty hokey! Some day you'll find the right girl, and you'll want to treat her like everyday is Valentine's and that's when it's the good stuff! Good luck and maybe we'll see you at Mcdonald's on tuesday! Take care and you really don't have any reason to be so hard on yourself, you'll make the right girl very happy someday!

Haha.. well I have to say anonymous, you've reduced me to being nice to someone for once. Normally I would probably verbally attack whomever wrote anonymously on my blog, however, I feel that would be inappropriate considering you've just said nice things to me... you're ruining my fun and my image that all women are evil.. this can't be good

I'm glad to hear it Hendy, and truth be told i'm not actually totally anonymous to you. I just don't have any cool screen names, and i've only met you once or twice but have heard lots of great things about you! I also hate to tell you but not all women are evil. There are definitely some who are, you know the saying "a few bad apples ruin the whole bunch!" I just think it is unfair that a good guy like you has come in to contact with more than your fair share of the bad ones. Keep the faith, love truly works in mysterious ways! A piece of advice from one of the good ones, "when people (insert evil women) show you who they really are, believe them, and don't make them show you again." Remember you deserve good things!!

aww.. now that's not fair. I know who you are but I can't even find out. Thanks for the piece of advice there, it's nice to know someone believes in me.

I just reread that statement, and for clarification, that wasn't sarcasm.. for once I was actually being sincere

I appreciate your sincerity, and no offence taken. If only your buddy eljam could be as sincere, but the world wasn't built in a day.

 
At 9:34 PM, Blogger Hendy said...

haha, can I know who you are?

 
At 9:58 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm gonna guess that eljam knows who I am, so if he wants to tell you he can. However, be sure before you ask that you want to know. I wouldn't want to ruin the mystery, plus it may be better to have an anonymous acquaintance that can offer relatively objective advice as needed! It's up to you! Toodles.........

Hendy you are fucking lame!

Thanks Steve, real classy

Bah humbug, please refer to #1

Oh Henderson, someday a nice girl will come trotting along and you'll get twitterpated and be declaring your love all over the internet.. and it will be a triumph of the human spirit...:D.. no but seriously, you will. On a side note, I love Valentine's Day, I don't care what anyone says,I always have. And this one will be like the only time I've had a boyfriend on Valentine's Day. Showin the love is fun regardless. If you can't beat em, join em.

It seems that everyone has advice to give me on here. I didn't realize that my anger filled rant would warrant everyone feeling sorry for me. That wasn't my intent, however I do appreciate the occasional piece of advice, regardless of how vain it may be

I was aiming that comment at anyone who was building me up, however it wasn't meant to tear anyone else down. I was simply stated that building me up had no point, lol. Sorry for the confusion, I'll keep to my policy of not insulting anyone who is nice to me, unless of course they are happy, see #1.

 
At 10:39 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Hendy, i'm confused?! I thought we were on the same page, and then when you find out who I am suddenly i'm vain?? Assuming that comment was aimed at me, if not....carry on, there's nothing to see here! P.S. Steve you are rude!!

For some reason it keeps putting my responses to comments ahead of the comment. I'm not really sure why.. but in case you're wondering why I haven't responded to your post then look at my comment above, perhaps that will make sense.
