Why Beef? #SoCS


I’m not sure what I was hoping for when I made “beef” the word of the week in my prompt. Was I looking for recipes? Perhaps. A bunch of rants on what people had complaints or “beefs” about? Maybe. A throwing up of hands from the vegetarians who follow me? Diatribes from people who can’t seem to put on weight? That might be fun. I actually wanted to wait until I had my own post written before I read anyone else’s, so that’s what I’ve done.

I rarely air my own “beefs” in public. Or even in private for that matter. When people or situations (but mostly people) get on my nerves I normally first try to determine why they’re getting on my nerves. Is it just me? Is there a reason behind it? It’s not until I’m pretty sure they (the people or the situations) are really out to get me that I’ll go off on my own little rant.

There are words that get my goat. And phrases too. Most of the phrases are made up of bad grammar, but words like “portion,” OH OH and when someone describes a certain aspect of a problem as a “piece” it really pisses me off. Inside. Because I don’t actually say anything.

I suppose it’s possible that I just have a problem with words that start with a “p.” Whatever. I just have to keep reminding myself, in the words of the great Bart Simpson, “Don’t have a cow!” Or a beef.

  1. p.s. I haven’t put on a pound in thirty years.


  2. Perhaps the potential precipitous pain of posting previously perilous publications pertaining to the letter “p” has provided you with a permanent phobia.

  6. I really liked this post. One of my pet peeves (two “p” words for you) is when people say they have a B.A. or M.A. in Communications. There is no “s” in Communication. But yes there are communications fields and types for which a person utilizes their B.A. or M.A. in Communication.


  7. Oh Oh!! 🙂 my daughter hates ‘p’ words, too. I say a lot of them to annoy her though…ha…


  8. Ha ha. Linda, there is no doubt that you have a wonderful sense of humour.
    As to your ability to not rant about things that annoy you… can I just say wow! I would be lost without my Garden Gnome and two particular people at work that I know that I can trust with my rants. At least once they are off my chest, they are gone. 🙂


  9. Ah. Beef…don’t have a cow…hahaha.
    If there is such a post, they can have some of my weight as well.
    I am not a vegetarian, but I am finding it easier and easier to stay away from a big cut of beef, cow, steak…whatever you want to call it.


  10. Did someone write about not being able to put on weight? I missed that one. Now I am going to have a big fat steak. Just kidding. It is funny what pushes our buttons. I know I definitely have some things that do and it is hard not to have a cow…


  11. I would love to hear from people who can’t put on weight. I’ll send them some of mine.
