I have two accounts that I'm trying to get merged and then once I do that, I'll be able to list all 5 volumes as Jen Mann. It's confusing because I started out writing as Jen of PIWTPITT and then changed to my name. I'll keep trying. (less)

“Excuse me?” I asked. I always say “excuse me” even though I heard perfectly well what the person said. I feel that by saying “excuse me,” I’m giving them a chance to realize they’re being an asshole, and they can change their attitude for the second attempt.”
Jen Mann, People I Want to Punch in the Throat: True(ish) Tales of an Overachieving Underachiever

“The thing about marriage is that it requires so much compromise. And, naturally, someone is going to come into the marriage being better at The Yield. In fact, I say a lengthy marriage requires it. Someone is always going to come in with horns down and nostrils flaring. That requires that the other person run away as quickly as possible while waving the white flag. Certainly not the red flag, because I don't want to be that poor woman who accidentally ran over her spouse sixty-five times. Someone is the bull. Someone must be the china shop. We all have important roles to play.”
Jen Mann, I Just Want to Be Alone

“I let my kids make decisions for themselves, but some things are not up for discussion. When it's cold, they wear a coat.”
Jen Mann, People I Want to Punch in the Throat: Competitive Crafters, Drop-Off Despots, and Other Suburban Scourges

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else's happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you're not sure what the right thing is...and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.”
Donna Ball, At Home on Ladybug Farm
