Women Are Sharing The Most Irrational Things They've Done While Hormonal And We Are Dead
Any women will know that power of hormones should never be underestimated. Imbalances in these all-important hormones can lead us into places of craziness and irrationality we never thought possible. When we come out of, it's like waking up after one too many drinks, where we ask ourselves: "Did I really act like that?!"
If this sounds familiar, you're not alone. In fact, that time you welled up at breaking a nail, got a little too angry at your colleague's annoying chewing noises, or tearfully scolded your partner for something minor is just the tip of the iceberg.
Women far and wide have been sharing the most irrational moments they've had while hormonal, and some of them are pure gold.
After a shoutout for stories on Facebook page Holy Flaps, women began sharing their real life stories of hormone-related moments of hysteria.
One woman told the story of how some flatulence from her partner lead her to cry about being homeless. Yep.
For anyone confused, she explains: "My husband once farted so loud and it scared me so much I cried. Because he laughed so much I cry-raged that I wanted a divorce, and told him we needed to put the house on the market. Then I cried because I'd be homeless. Because of a fart." Hilarious.
Another woman shared the story of how her hormones lead her to ground her 14-year-old for sneezing too loudly. We're sensing a theme against unwanted bodily functions here...
One woman shared her story of snack rage and honestly, it's all-too relatable. "Cookies come in a 4 pack!! One for me, one for him and one each for the kids," her post starts.
"I SAVED mine for that moment after work when you just need your cup of tea and a cookie (it was Terry's Chocolate Orange) I came home full of hell, put kettle on, opened cupboard door - no cookie!!!!
"I went full on psycho packed bags, went to my parents.
"Dad asks 'bloody hell what's happened?'
"'He ate my biscuit'"
Moving out because someone ate your cookie is a big energy, TBH.
Another snack-related overreaction came from a woman whose craving for cheese lead to her commit some daylight robbery.
The woman, who was heavily pregnant, explains: "Went to Sainsburys to be beaten to the last packet of Cathedral City. Fumed that much I stalked the cheese thief until they weren't looking & took it out their trolley & waddled off to the tills as fast as my fat feet would carry me!"
Another woman's disaster in the kitchen lead her to cry hysterically, which was only made worse when she saw an advert for a donkey charity.
"I tried making an omelette, f*cked it up completely. Cried hysterically, said I CAN'T F* CKING EAT THAT! 5 minutes later... I ate it," she says.
"Whilst eating it, there was an advert on TV about mistreated donkeys, so I was once again crying hysterically.
"3 years later I'm still sponsoring a donkey called Fred."
Another hormone-themed rage centre appears to be at banks.
One woman told of how she cried in a bank after she thought it ate her card. "Cried in the bank after the cash machine ate my card (7 months pregnant at the time) - they were lovely, sorted me out, pointed out my account was fine and sorted the card," she says. "Got home to find said card in my purse - machine had eaten my tesco clubcard."
Another told the hilarious tale of how a customer service agent at HSBC felt the full brunt of her hormone rage after the bank made a mistake.
"I once went postal at a HSBC customer service agent person over the phone. Admittedly they had made a mistake but I lost it," she starts. She then explains how she "told them to shove their mortgage up their arse then screamed repeatedly before slamming the phone down."
But she soon had a change of heart, telling how she "cried solidly for 45 minutes and ended up calling them back apologising, begging them not to stop my mortgage etc." She continues: "They sent me a massive bouquet of flowers as an apology and a letter which informed me because they had recorded our conversation (I knew this) they were now using it as a training guide for new customer service agents. Apparently it got played at the head office in London at a meeting.
Another hilarious anecdote read: "I'd spent all day cooking for my husband and kids, they all ate and left to get on with their lives. I asked him to do the dishwasher."
She continued: "He hadn't done it the next morning so I opened the kitchen window as wide as it would go, pulled the outside bin up to the window and threw everything away. It felt so good that I emptied the cupboards and everything too. Not a single spoon cup or plate was left in the whole house and I am still not even sorry.
"Lazy sh*t had to go and buy all new. Won't wait for me to ask next time though."
If these stories don't make you feel a bit better about that time you cried because your dog looked sad, we don't know what will.
