Jon & Kate......

OH MY!!!! Now these people have a book. They live close by. I do not like them one bit!
Update: I am also not a fan of liver... do not like it one bit!!! Does that sound mean and hateful too. We are all entitled to our own thoughts. I wrote nothing mean or hateful here. Even promoted their book!! If you have a real comment to make, please have the nerve to at least state who you are!

Just curious what you don't like about them?

Way do you not like them? Do even know them? I think they are great!!
I mean to me you have to have it together with so many children to get anything done other than just feeding and dressing them. Don't bitch about them until you have walked in their shoes for one day.

We all have neighbors we're not particularly fond of. Negative attention can sometimes make people want to buy their book or make them want to more about them, so by posting this you're just going to make your terrible neighbors richer by selling more books. Other than that, I love your posts and visit your site frequently. I think you do a grat job.

Why such a mean and hate-filled post? It would have been better to not mention anything. I will not be visiting this site again!

Frugal Finds said...

Well, I never said anything mean or hateful. I just simply stated I do not like them. I am sure you all have people you do not like too and it may be these people if you would know more about them. Funny how all the comments are anonymous!

I don't see why eveyrone is getting so upset about this. So Carol doesn't care for them...what she said is not mean or hate filled just HER OPINION. We all have them. I personally do not care for the way Kate treats Jon a lot of the times. There are other things too that I dislike about them and I will not get into that now but I still watch the show. I too live nearby and have even worked with Kate before she had the babies. I just don't see why everyone is getting on Carol's case for her putting her feelings on her blog.

funny thing is, I dont like teir show or liver. I love your website.

Kimberly said...

Why don't you like them? I don't know them and I'm cool with you not liking them I'm just fascinated by a couple with all those babies so I was curious :) I do watch the show occasionally, my husband can't stand it (but he's got baby phobia, lol) ...

Amanda said...

I think the article you link to says absolutely everything I would say about why I dislike that show. I liked it once upon a time, but lately, everytime I watch it, I go away disturbed.

Carol, I'm sorry people took your opinion so personally and weren't adult enough to own their bad attitudes. Girl, it's your blog, and you don't have to like that show even if you were related to the people. I'm sorry such childishness was exhibited here because of your differing opinion.

I'll take some of the heat. Here are some of my opinions:

** I don't like J&K+8.
** I don't like LOST.
** I don't like Survivor.
** I'm not sure if I like scrapbooking anymore (but don't tell my husband because I may have to give up my scrapbooking room).
** I do like liver (until I think about what it is I'm eating, and then I don't like it, until I smell it cooking again and remember that I do. It's a vicious cycle, really.)
** I really like your blog and appreciate all your hard work in compiling such good deals.
** I dislike people who behave childishly behind the guise of anonymity and say mean and hateful things about someone's opinion posted on their own blog. I think (1) that person should own their behavior, and (2) all anonymous comments -- unless they're glowing comments -- should be deleted promptly and permenantly.

Amanda said...

permenantly = permanently...

Please forgive that, and any other missed misspellings. It's way too late to be up stalking blogs.

Lisa said...

Carol: I like J&K+8. I found nothing mean or HATEFUL about your post. Here's something HATEFUL:
I HATE anonymous commenters. To me they are chicken sh.... well you get the point!

Ok I need to defend myself. I was the first person to post asking what she didn't like about Jon & Kate. It was anonymous because I don't have a google acct. My name is Annette. I did not think her post was negative or any of those things I was just curious as to why she didn't like them. You know it isn't a rule that you have to like everyone, liking not liking that is what makes the world go round. So anyway Hi my name is Annette and yes I do like this show but to each their own

Frugal Finds said...

Annette, I appreciate your introduction and I welcome your comments! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I like when people have their own opinion instead of going with what everyone else thinks. The problem came when others said how hatefull i was just because i said I did not like them. What I said in that original post was not mean or hatefull. Today's post did contain for details. The ironic thing is the show is on my tv right now cause my kids like it. My son is watching while waiting for his lunch. I watch each episode several times and the more I see, the less I like. I feel the same way about Barney too. He has his good qualities but man does he annoy me sometimes! Know what I mean?
Anyway, Welcome Annette!! I hope I see you more often!

First time to comment...I have said for months that I couldn't stand to watch that show b/c Kate is so bossy and just seems to be a pain to live with. Sounds like there are plenty of others that feel the same way.

Elizabeth F. said...

I've only seen the show once, but once was enough. I was completely unaware of what others thought until this post and reading the article...but when I saw the show I thought she was very rude to her hubby and very harsh on her little children. I will not watch again for those reasons. Glad to know I'm not the only one who feels that way.

Jennifer said...

Well, here's my 2 cents. :o)
I have no idea who these people are. They have their own show? Is that right? Good grief.
I love your site and honestly, I think the only rude & mean comment you made was that you....may....not....like......scrapbooking.....awww!!!
LOL
j/k.
I'm glad to know that you have a backbone and speak your honest thoughts. I linked your blog to my site a couple of months ago, btw!
:o)

Ah Jennifer, I fought the scrapbooking phase for many years hoping it would go out of style soon. Then my DD begged to try it so I took her to a free class at our library last year. Now I am hooked and my DH even ordered a Cricut for me!So.. at last I ahve seen the light. It sure is not a cheap hobby!!

Hi Carol. I have no clue who you are talking about, but certainly read nothing hateful, and whatever else people have said. I am sure if I knew what the heck you were talking about I could come up with lots of nasty, hateful things to say because gawd, if you don't like them, I probably really don't like them-after all , you like that family with like 8 dozen kids from Arkansas that I just hate lol.
It's your dang blog-you can say whatever you want about whatever you want.

Frugal Finds said...

LOL!! Diane, that is why I love you so much!!!
By the way the woman from Arkansas with all the kids, just announced on the Today show around Mother's Day that she is pregnant with number 18!! At least that family pays for their own lives.
The thing that put dislike for this family in my head was when they scolded the county I live in (they used to live here too) for not yet purchasing them a passanger van when the babies were a few months old. Buy your own damn van is my opinion!!
