Tantrums and bitch fits




So yesterday must have been a slow news day in the US because one of the biggest news stories to come out was Suri Cruise threw a bitch fit over her mummy not buying her a puppy.


(We've all been there sweetheart, we've all been there)


It is a horrible lesson to learn that tantrums don't get you anywhere in life Suri,


and trust me when i say that if they did I would be covered in diamonds (and Matthew McConaughey)


Tantrums. Cute on 6yr olds, when you can still send them on a time out (although not so cute in the middle of Asda. Little...... cherub) not so cute on grown men and women.





I've seen it with my own eyes, grown women pouting or stamping their feet to get what they want (No, there wasn't a mirror in front of me at the time, so NER)


Not cool, but sometimes SO damn funny to watch.


So please share with me your stories of tantrums and bitch fits that you have witnessed (or thrown)


And let me know if they worked. (I'm taking notes here, Mr McConaughey is looking FINE lately)

    1. No tantrums or bitch fits here about the Cosmo awards, but search the #cosmoblogawards hashtag, there will be enough there to keep you going for a while ;)

  2. As I am slap bang in the middle of a mid life crisis (yep bought an old sporty car, been snogging unsuitable young men, falling out of bars etc) I am attempting to perfect the art of the hissy fit. So far, I'm not doing terribly well because it doesn't come naturally to me. I'm generally an Avoid Confrontation type of bird. However...its a work in progress. It appears to work for women who throw tantrums...and when I've commented on them before, people say things like "Oh that's just Jessica, she's a drama queen" etc etc.

    So I will be throwing myself on the floor of an Asda near you soon.

    1. Can't you start somewhere a little quieter, like M&S where people will just step over you and build up to Asda? Baby hissy fits darling, baby hissy fits

  3. I once watched a woman throw a tantrum at her boyfriend so that he would buy her a expensive bag. I don't know if I was more disappointed with her for doing it and letting the sisterhood down or him for falling for it.

  5. Missed all the Cosmo stuff *living in a bubble clearly* but my husband can be the king of the strop if he doesn't get his own way. Think he learned it from his Mum who will sulk like a school girl if she doesn't.... The first Christmas after we got married even we said no visitors still leaves me cold now. 10 years on... but I stood firm against the tears and tantrums and strops and we had no visitors...

  6. I have been throwing a tantrum for years now cos my hubby refuses to buy me a pygmy elephant, a camel,panda, a goat, a pig, another puppy, a parrot.. In fact he has put his foot down and is refusing to let me have any more pets at all whatsoever.

    SO I'm getting a rabbit next month. If I don't get a rabbit I WILL have a huge tantrum, again, and he will point and laugh at me then go and make me a coffee :D

    My tantrums are of the I am taking the mick out of tantrums variety ;)

  7. I can't ever remember seeing an adult woman throwing a hissy fit, which is probably a good thing! Isla Fisher in Wedding Crashers comes to mind, do women ACTUALLY do that?! Oh that hashtag is a revelation, lots of thinly veiled digs, staying well away from it. x

  8. My friend threw an enormous fit travelling in India once. Having spent 14 hours on a train he arrived at his hotel after midnight to discovered someone else had taken his room. He screamed and swore and demanded the guests be dragged from their beds. He was hastily offered a tent to sleep in at a cost of $200. Cue more swearing. The poor, hapless receptionist took him outside and showed him the 'tent'. It was a luxury marquee with carpets and a four poster bed put up for a recently visiting Maharaj who had been in the vacinity buying camels. He got the whole thing for $20 a night, plus they opened the restaurant for him at 1 am. Moral of the story? Sometimes it pays to rant.

  12. I lived with a girl at uni who threw fits all the time to get what she wanted, from her parents or boyfriend, the rest of the housemates soon told her where to go though.
