Oh hell, that was funny!

Fitting from someone of your caliber.

queenstella said...

Awesome!

Long time Ashley reader. The WIC entry was the best! So true. And the apology, hilarious and NOT necessary.
I didn't realize the haters were being forced to read The Closet? I could of sworn you can just click the power button and your computer turns off?
Thanks for keeping me laughing.

Jen said...

Love it!

Oh my goodness! That is hilarous!! Who was offended? The woman in there with the out of control kids?

PS - Congratulations on the new job!! I'm going to miss the 9 posts a day! :-(

Love the apology, loved the wic post. If people dont like it, then dont read it.
Keep it up!

Ashley said...

Without sinners it would be harder for saints like yourself to look good, so thank God for people of my "caliber".

Whoever is holding her down and forcing her to continue reading...please, let her go. Really. She's got a world to save.

Well, I thought that it was an interesting conversation until it kind of deteriorated...I got a book recommendation out of it, and I heard some thoughtful opinions from intelligent women.

It was too bad that it turned into a free-for-all, but no apology (sincere or otherwise) is necessary...a blogger is doing a good job if they get you thinking, whether you agree with them or not. I thought it was a good topic.
No panties wadded here!

SNORT!

Me said...

I love that form! My new favorite saying "I didn't mean to get crumbs in people's panties".

Thanks!

ps: some people take vague observations way too seriously. It's not like you posted about a blogger and said "look at this bitch on WIC buying cigarettes"

lighten up people

how charmingly prefunctory of you, my dear!

SO funny! Not that it was at all necessary.

I find it fascinating that people who so obviously dislike you continue to read your blog anyway. How dumb is that? She must have NO life at all if she has so much free time that she fills it reading blogs she doesn't like. I know I don't have that kind of time to waste.

Crummy Mommy, why don't you take your self-rightious opinions and exit the closet? It's crowded enough in here without all of your santimonious crap added to it.

I loved it and the apology was great. Seriouslyu..who is out there reading JUST to have something to bitch about?!

Melodie said...

Okay. I was curious. So, I went to the Crummy Mommy's blog and checked it out. She has NO right to throw stones at you when she herself has made negative comments on her own blog about other people based on their appearance and such.

I feel SO bad for those poor "toothless carnies" she hates. Seriously? Just because someone works for a carnival and hasn't had good dental care (probably because they are too poor to afford it) doesn't give you the right to make judgements about them, Crummy Mommy. What a hypocrite!

Everyday Stuff With Marfa said...

As a long time reader of The Closet and someone who has gained weight over the years and is now struggling to lose it, I can tell you that I am NOT offended. I also don't understand people who don't have money to buy food, yet are overweight. Or people with out of control children. Every single time that I visit Disney I start out the day with all the patience in the world. By the end of the day, after being run over by running kids and parents pushing strollers I am ready to smack a few people around as well.

Good luck with your new job. I hope you impress the heck out of them!

Jess said...

Cookiemomsterncrumbs - Go the fuck away! If you don't like it, don't read it!

Ashley - You did NOT have to apologize! I was on WIC for the first two years of my ODS's life when I was a single, teenaged mother (getting no child support) and I absolutely HATED going into that place to get my assistance. I was never so glad to get off of that so I didn't have to deal with all the bullshit anymore.

I just really wish that all of the 'negative nancys' would get the hell out of the closet. They're ruining my fun!

Pearls of Wisdom said...

Ok so as a new "reader who comments" on the closet, I feel it's important that my second comment EVER be about how awesome/funny you are, and how unawesome/unfunny the Crummy Mommy is. I'm loyal to the closet all the way! You were just making light of a difficult situation. And hey- it happened to be truthful.

Me said...

I stand up for you Ashley here or on any other blog no matter how much of a shitstorm it brings me, or how many threats I get in my email.

It's amazing to me what some people will say will they can hide behind the Internet. It takes a special kind of coward.

Face to face, I'm sure they piss themselves.

Still here with all my hair.... said...

LMFAO. You ROCK!

Amanda said...

Ashley, I love it, although you have nothing to apologize for. This is your own blog and you can write anything you darn well please! Anyone who doesn't like it can easily click the little tiny "x" up there and make it all go buh-bye. =)

Angry Julie said...

Ohh geez...

Why do people always get their panties in a wad? Is it because they are those type of people, that we are always blogging about?

I love the apology letter though, fucking hilarious!

sunny-daze said...

Thanks for all the excitement!

I hate to repeat what everyone else is saying but:

You are awesome
This whole thing is hilarious
The apology was not necassary
If you don't like The Closet, leave

But I am sure Crummy Mommy's not so bad, she just should have stayed where she was.

Marie said...

Wow I have to admit I dont really read all the comments. When I saw this i went back a read. I am going to have to start reading pretty cheap entertainment.

I love your uncensored ass Ashley!!

Heather said...

I used to work for our local clinic doing the billing. The building also contained the wic office and you totally hit the nail on the head! I called my mom and made her go read your post because I thought it was so funny! I personally liked the pacifer and bottle part.

This Mom said...

I total loved your observations of he WIC center. ANd whole heartedly agree. As far as I am concerned no need for an apology but if you felt the need to give one I LOVE the way you do it.

Kim said...

It's too bad that some people (i.e. cookiemomsterncrumbs) aren't mature enough to be involved in a discussion without it deteriorating into childish insults.

The apology was funny, but wholly unnecessary.

Mekhismom said...

This apology is hilarious! And I am glad that there was discourse in your comments because you had the courage to say what people really think. Put it out there. See what type of intelligent conversation can arise.

morewineplease said...

Like my daddy always said "opinions are like ass holes... everybody has one"

Keep it coming Ashley, you are just brave enough to say what we all think! I heart your blog :)

Tony and Michelle said...

Oh how funny! Loved the "formal" apology....and I didn't think it was necessary either. All you did was state your observations and reflect on them...isn't that what makes a good blog?

Kaza said...

Okay, you are hilarious (but you already knew that, no?), and seriously, people need to take a chill pill. Awesome way to address it, yo.

Cheeky Tracy said...

Wow! She is an asshat!

the pink putter said...

Hilarious apology, but so not necessary! This is your blog, therefore it is your opinions that should be on it.

Life, Love And Lola said...

Now that's FUCKING FUNNY!

Joy said...

Oh that is great I will now have to go get all caught up on the WIC comments even though there are so many that I didn't read.

Anonymous said...

WHY is CookieMonster (Fitting name, she is scary looking... and a fatty...) such a dumb hypocrite? Everything she says, from her posts to her comment form on her blog to her comments are full of double standards. Pisses me right off!

Anonymous said...

WTH Ashley! You spank your kids AND you're skinny. The nerve!

Shannie said...

See... These are the reasons I love you so, my friend....

christa said...

OK, I've been out of town for a few days and am just catching up. Girl... I thought the wic observation was on target!! Sometimes the truth hurts.

Catfish said...

Fucking Hilarious!

Mrs. Noonzie said...

I have to get WIC shots for my kids too, and I thought it was hilarious.
