Everyone has a right to their opinion even if you don’t agree.
Don’t leave your kids for a piece of ass. You may think it is love, but it is a piece of ass.
Don’t lie about your child’s other parent to get your way.
If you’re going to cheat on someone who loves you break up with them first.
Don’t bait people with your political bull shit.
Don’t pick favorites with your kids.
Don’t bring strange men home until your kids grow up.
Buck up and be a parent.
Don’t tell someone getting over a death to deal with it, or that they’ll meet somebody new, or that the departed was needed by God to be someplace else. Just shut the fuck up and be there for them.
Don’t act stupid.
If someone posts something on social media that you don’t agree with just pass on it. Don’t comment. You aren’t going to change their mind. You’re just going to make them unfriend you – and make all of their real friends mad at you.
Don’t be a troll or a jerk in online groups.
Don’t be a troll or a jerk period.
Stop getting all butt hurt over everything. Being a fucking prima donna isn’t flattering for anyone (especially when you’re an adult male.)
Wearing clothing that is too tight will not make you look sexy. It will make you look like a sausage.
Read. Something. Anything. Just read.
Don’t make excuses for what you read. If you want to read romance, or horror, or technical gardening manuals then DO IT. You don’t have to answer to anyone.
Believe in yourself. I know that is hard with everyone in the world telling you not to, but screw them. Believe in you. If you’re reading this I BELIEVE IN YOU. Do it.
Tell toxic people to either seek professional help, or tell them to go to Hell. Or tell them nothing and stop talking to them. You don’t need them. They are toxic.
If someone tells you that they blog about goats, or rabbits, or Vampires, or Chinese myths, please don’t say, “I don’t really like goats, or rabbits, or Vampires, or Chinese myths.” Just say, “WOW, that is really cool.”
History isn’t about dead people. It is about what makes us alive today.
Don’t be rude to the help.
Don’t expect Vampires to go around with blood dripping from their chins. Seriously, who the Hell does that?
Vampires can go out during the day. Get over it.
NEVER wear black stockings with open toed shoes. Seriously. Don’t do it.
You don’t have to show off your boobs to everyone. Let me say that in another way… you don’t have to show off your tits to everyone. Sometimes it is ok to wear a shirt that covers a little more. Sometimes that is the sexy choice.
Nobody gives a shit what your wedding dress looks like. They’re all checking out the level of awfulness in the bridesmaid dresses you picked out.
Cats are assholes but you MUST still love them and protect them.
Don’t tease animals.
Don’t be that asshole at the dog park who tells other dog owners that their is something wrong with their dogs, when everyone knows your dog is the jerk. The same applies to parents of human kids.
Your child is not the center of MY universe. Get over it.
You don’t have to answer the phone every time it rings.
Don’t talk to me about religion or politics.
Never brush anyone off or discount their worth because of their age. Young or old – everyone has value, and their words, opinions, and talents have worth.
Don’t say shit about the state I live in. I’m in California. Nuff said. I love it. I’m here for the long haul. Get over it. If you like where you live I’m happy for you. Seriously. Stop hating on me.
We’re Vampires, not flesh rotting Zombies. We’re not rotting. Get over it.
Watch out for Goblins.
Be there for your kids.
Talk to your kids.
Talk with your kids.
Listen to your children.
Don’t judge your teens.
Listen to your teens.
I’m going to say it again – Listen to your teens. Don’t judge them. Hear what they have to say. Hug them. Be there for them. Don’t discount their opinions or dreams.
Tread lightly near angry Vampire moms.
Feel free to share your angry rules in the comments below. If you troll anyone (including me) I’ll remove the comment. Or leave cute comments about your cats or dogs. That will work too.
