Book Description

Should you need a license in order to become a parent? What’s wrong with calling people Ms. and Mr.? Why is casual day at the office insulting? Why should you take down the flag? Is women’s fiction really women’s fiction? Should we have professional jurors? Why shouldn’t athletes take performance-enhancing drugs? Why should you boycott marriage? And let’s talk about the weather report…

Philosophy with an attitude. Because the unexamined life is dangerous.

5.0 out of 5 stars what annoys Peg Tittle also annoys me October 19, 2011

I've read and loved Peg Tittle's essays before but I wondered... I would I be as p***ed off by the same topics as her, with this new collection? AND I WAS! I find Peg Tittle to be a passionate, stylistically-engaging writer with a sharp eye for the hypocritical aspects of our society. Congrats!

4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed by Read2Review February 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was unsure on taking this book on for the use of language in the title, however I am glad I read it as some very valid points were made. I will tell you a little about my favourite bits of the book.

Drugs and Sports - What's The Problem: A subject which has been brought to the front for many who enjoy wrestling like me. We support the wrestlers and they, out of their own choosing, take drugs and get suspended. So do we still support them? For me I am choosing to support one particular wrestler still as they, I have to say, are little and cute and make me smile with their in ring abilities. If he gets suspended again he will be thrown out of the company he works for. I do not condone drug taking in the slightest and for me the discussion in this section was a topic that I have been thinking about myself.

Women's Fiction: A very good look at calling Women's Fiction "Women's Fiction". I agree with what was said here. Men enjoy women's fiction too some even write what would be classified as "Woman's Fiction". Maybe the category of "Women's Fiction" needs to be addressed.

Bang Bang: This addressed another subject that I have been following closely. A shop opened in our town centre which was called the "Kids Army Store" selling toy guns and war toys. I have been on the side that doesn't agree with this kind of shop at all! Do you remember years ago when people blamed the Power Rangers for all kinds of trouble that children did; fighting amongst others? Isn't it the exact same thing with selling toy guns?

If I go into too much detail in my review I am at risk of telling you the whole book and the discussions in it. But I would highly encourage all to read the book. It brought to the front some subjects that a lot of people have views on and I have to say that I agreed with a lot of them.

I would give S*** That Pisses Me Off 4/5.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good rant December 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you want a book that touches on a lot of the things in life that tick you off, this is it. It's like a good rant with a few points thrown in to really make you think. I really related with the author and actually got her other books in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars She read my mind November 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For a great majority of this book, I felt like she is my psychological doppelganger! About 98 per cent of this shit also pisses me off, too! And on a regular basis.
