I'm starting to hate hanging out with women my age.
Advertisements [?]
I don't want to hear about how you micromanage your teenage kids. I don't give a rat's ass if your kid wears designer clothing. The fact that your kid bought their way into school doesn't impress me.

Shut the hell up and talk about something real. I am not impressed. Aren't there any middle aged women who don't care about superficial crap?
