Chutzpah: Mommy Blogger

Chutzpah. This is a word that is used often by myself because sometimes I just can’t believe what people do. I mean really! I thought it would be fun to share our Chutzpah moments. The only rules are no names of stores, people, or events. You may also not use inappropriate language. Leave a comment listing your favorite Chutzpah moment! I mean laughter is the best medicine.

chutzpah Or khutspe. Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption. In English, chutzpah often connotes courage or confidence, but among Yiddish speakers, it is not a compliment.

Dear Advertisers,

I am a business woman. I am very good at what I do in fact I quite my “real” job to run my business. I am many things I am not a mommy blogger. When you go to work do people say hey “daddy or mommy” marketing representative. Do they hi Mr. Dad Denist or Mrs. Mom doctor? Do they ask you if you can handle your job because you have kids? I think not. I can not only handle my job but excel at it all while having children at home. I would love to see you run a business and run a house. I would love to work with you based on my abilities and the fact that I can close deal and promote a contest. I study my craft and I refine my skills just like any professional would. I think it is time for people to recognize that this is not something I do because I have nothing better to do. It is actually something I do to help pay for our expenses in fact. I figured out a way to have my sidebar pay all of my personal bills so I never have to sell anything to my fans to make bills. Yes, madame or sir I am ready to run your event or write your post but I am however not ready to be called a “mommy blogger” because I am a mom who happens to run a blog.

Sincerely,

Amee

    I never thought of the term “mommy blogger” that way, but it’s true; you wouldn’t say “hey, mr. Daddy President!” Thanks for the new perspective!

    I was at a large store when this lady with WAY more than 20 items was getting into the 20 or less lane. Normally, I would let it go, but the place was packed, and we all had to wait in long lines. There is no way that she could have mistakenly thought she had 20 items or fewer. There must have been 80 items in her cart. So I said, “Excuse me, but we all need have to wait in line, and I think you need to count your items again.” She glared at me, but got out of line and went to the regular line.
