The Room 101 Meme – 3 things I would banish

Room 101 meme

I have been tagged to take part in the Room 101 meme. Do you remember that fab show?

The idea for the Room 101 meme is simple:

  • Pick three things/people/whatever that you would shove in a room never to see the light of day again (Room 101)
  • Explain why should they go in there
  • Tag three bloggers to carry the meme forward
Are you ready for my 3 things?


First of all this is a funny meme for me to do because those of you that know me will know I am a problem solver and a positive person on the whole. Its not like me to be grumpy. In fact I really really dislike grumpy moaners and they  are the first thing I want to dump in room 101. Grumpy moaners will moan about anything and everything. They don’t move on from what they are moaning about until they have thoroughly made everyone else miserable.
They don’t change things or make them better and they are just being selfish and self indulgent. banish them to room 101 and they can happily grump and moan at each other and leave the rest of us alone.
The second thing I hate is meanness. You know mean  as in unkind people like Katie Hopkins whose mean spirit prejudice leads to kids being bullied and ostracised because of hair colour and names (oh and its so damn funny  if it’s not you or yours that’s affected isn’t  it!) Meanness where one child says to another you can play with us or where a child is left out of a birthday party that the whole class attend because of their special needs. Yes meanness that sneers at people for their weight and or lack of sophistication. I’m banishing you bitchy, mean, nasty, meanness you have no right to infest and affect our lives.
The third thing I want to ban is typos. Bain of my life.

    Hi my dear – thanks so much for doing this, and I can’t possibly disagree with any of those things, particularly the first one. Though sometimes I might meet myself coming out of the room to put myself back in! 😉

    Oh my. I would put in mine – pens without lids, dirty toe nails and huge handbags.

    Meanness and typos should definitely go in, couldn’t agree more!! Too much meanness in modern life it seems, although I do sometimes find myself in the grumpy category, so best make sure I don’t descend from grump to mean – oh dear!!
