Stir the Pot

Stir the Pot: Verb.

To bring up unwelcome topics in an unwelcoming manner, usually by an unwelcome person. Experiences typically involve a female who you are not exactly kindred spirits with.

These unwelcome wicked witches bring up, in overly sweet tones, topics you don’t want to discuss.

  • “Oh my gosh guess who I saw the other day? Jayne! Remember how she got that internship you wanted? How do you feel about that?”
  • “Hey! I hear your ex-boyfriend is dating that cute brunette from Seattle! You guys look exactly alike…it’s weird.” 
  • “What did you get on the Chem test? Cause I saw your score.”
  • “So why weren’t you at Jessica’s bridal shower? We all missed you. We talked about you a lot and how you’re the only one of our friends not married yet. Is that hard for you?”

Where’s a bucket of water when we need one?

  1. i once had a girlfriend tell me that plus size models now-a-days wear a size 6. then in front of a group of us sitting around a campfire, she said, "so...YOU'D be a plus size model."

  2. oh. my. gosh. people say things sometimes that deserve a punch in the face.

  3. are these real? what in the world.

  4. I accidentally said to Gail at work today, "oh yeah I had a rain-jacket... kinda like the one you are wearing but it was nicer and cost more...but I lost it."

    You should have seen Gail's face and at that point I realized what I had said and I felt SO bad. I think I may be a pot stirrer. GAIL- if you are reading this I love you haha.
