Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)…

I am a woman. Therefore, I sure know how to rant and bitch and moan about something or someone. Since meeting my Mr-Nice-Guy Husband, i have learnt how to stay calm and see the good in most people or not let it bother me and forget about them. But this post gives me good reason to have a quick rant. A rant about a certain group of people that have been irritating me of late, because I have noticed more and more of them…
Attention-seeking chicks.
Disrespectful chicks.
Chicks is a horrible word – sweet for little yellow, fluffy, baby chickens but mot to describe a woman. But this is the nicest adjective I can find to describe these irritating women. We all know the kind…
Arrogant and proud, and love the sight of their own reflection in the mirror.
Is normally quite attractive on the outside.
Confident and opinionated, and very much in your face.
Manipulating but very easily plays dumb.
One of the boys. Or trying to be.
Doesn’t have very many girl friends but has plenty of boy friends.
Complete disrespect and dosregard for a marriage, relationship or union of any kind.
Complete bitch but acts sickly sweet.
Usually dressed in very little (as this enhances the reflection in the mirror).
No morals or values.
Definitely not a faithful follower but may still be found in a church.
Almost always a member of the gym as this is fertile ground.
Loves and cannot resist a selfie.
Haha, I sound like a super jealous green monster. I am not.
I just know right from wrong. I know good from bad, I know to respect people and relationships. I have morals and values.
And my sweet Father has taught me all these things. He may encourage me to love my neighbour but I am sure he will agree that I don’t have to like these people, and I certainly don’t have to have time for them or entertain their behaviour.
Lucky for me, I have a husband who has the same morals and values as me, and doesn’t have an interest for girl friends (except mutual friends), therefore limiting his involvement with the above type – although a few of these “chicks” have crossed his naive and friendly path on the odd occasion.
I am also a loyal friend and I will stand by any friend who has had the displeasure of either befriended one of these chicks and been let down, disappointed or hurt by them or been caught in a tangle of betrayal due to one of these chicks targeting their ‘other halves’.
For any chick reading this, I reach out to you in the nicest possible way… If you have noticed any qualities or traits that you may have that constitutes being a “chick”, change. Change for everyone. But most of all, change for yourself. Because ultimately you are the one person that this will affect the most. You are going to end up sad and lonely with no partner or friends because no one will be able to trust you. And trust is a tie that keeps all marriages, relationships and friendships together.
You don’t want to be THAT CHICK.
Ok. Rant over.
