C’mon, man. Why would ANYONE waste the time to pin these things, much less actually follow through? These pins remind us of one of our favorite Weezer songs – Why Bother?
Here’s a summary of our top three frustrations.
1. “Bedazzled” things.
Have a perfectly fine piece of electronic equipment or nice pair of high heels, and want it to look like a kindergarten art project? Then these pins are for you:
Bedazzled iPhone charger
DIY glitter high heels
2. Homemade versions of things you can buy at the store.
True, we are kind of guilty of this one ourselves because of our attempt at making homemade Thin Mints, but to our point, Girl Scout cookies are only available for a limited time each year. These things are available ALL of the time, already taste great, are CHEAP, and it would take you less time to drive to the store and purchase them than to physically make! We don’t get it:
Homemade Cheez-it crackers
3. Baby reveals & announcements
We’ve never been there, so we don’t know for sure, but aren’t you supposed to be like really tired and nauseous when you’re pregnant? Ugh. Who has time to get gussied up and photo-shoot ready, or do some elaborate baking, OR throw a party? At the risk of sounding like an old clodhopper: “Back in my day, we used to call people on this thing called a telephone and tell them we were having a baby.”

And on a related note, preggatinis? Who wants to go to all the trouble of making a cocktail when there’s no reward of alcohol?
