Xtra Bad

Really? Was there NO ONE in this woman's life to encourage her to reconsider? This is from a woman's signature block from a message forum I sometimes read:

Proud [My Husband's Employer] Wife of 18 years! Mom to FIVE eXcellent kids: DeXter, BraXton, MaXlin, JaXson and NiXon!

I'm all for funky names. In certain circumstances I can even be semi-tolerant of funky spellings. But this just seems all wrong to me.

That is about as bad as a gal from here years ago who named her daughter "Fe molly" (Female) because she misread the wrist band and thought it was a nice name for her little girl.

I hate that I'm so jaded that this barely phases me. Don't misunderstand me, I think it's all kinds of wrong, just not surprising.

I was recently speaking with your neighbor whose husband just returned from his RLBT. The stories she has make you wonder how some people function on a daily basis. They seem to lack such basic life skills not to mention common sense.

Vicki's story is made me laugh...
