Titty Babies

“Cry baby, cry baby suck yo mama titty”

If you grew up in the south, you either heard those words as a kid or you used them to taunt another kid.  Nobody, I mean nobody wanted to be called a Titty Baby.  But just in case you didn’t grow up in the south and you have no idea what a Titty Baby is, let me explain.  A Titty Baby is an adult who continues to get rent money, grocery money, cell phone money, etc from parents, friends, co-workers, any source other than their own. This person makes poor decisions with money because they know they have other people to bail them out.  Titty Babies complain about everybody and everything.  They blame others for whatever is going on (or not going on) in their lives.  Parents who have a titty baby will likely never be able to retire as they will continue to support said titty baby well into their retirement years. By the time the parents die, there is no milk left and therefore no inheritance for the other children.

Take a close look at the picture.  You will notice that not only is this dog nursing her own pup,  she also has two tigers at her tit.  So not only does she have her own cry baby to take care of, she is caring for someone else’s cry baby as well.

We all  know someone who complains about everything.   Titty Babies tend to think that it is their job to point out all the problems with the world, while it’s your job to fix them. Most Titty Babies appear helpless and do not understand even the first step in the problem solving process. The trick in dealing with a Titty Baby  is to get them to think as problem solvers without allowing them to draw you into their constant complaining.  In other words, allow them the opportunity to solve their own damn problems without offering them your titty.  Cause believe you me, if you offer them the titty, they’ll suck you dry AND leave teeth marks.

Here are a few tips to assist you in the weaning process:

1. Never try to solve their problems. Any solution that you propose will only be met with more complaints and the thousand reasons why nothing ever works.

2. Never verbally agree with them. Even if you do agree with them, never admit your agreement. They usually take agreements as an invitation to complain some more.

3. Whenever they grumble, ask them open-ended questions designed to get them thinking about the problem and the problem solving process. Open-ended questions include any question that cannot be answered with a yes or no. The best open-ended questions usually begin with who, what, why, where, or how. These are questions like, “So what do you want to do about it?” “So what do you think caused it?’ “So why haven’t you spoken to the people involved?”

4. Most importantly, resist all of your natural impulses to offer them suggestions. Every suggestion you make will only be met with more reasons why suggestions never work. Instead, respond to everything they say with a question. Put the responsibility for changing their situations squarely in their laps.

5. If you want to end the conversation, but they keep talking, try setting a time limit. Tell them something like, “I need to go in a few seconds, so what exactly do you need to tell me before I go.” Usually after this, you can gently disengage the conversation.

I’ll leave you with a bottom line for handling Titty Babies. 

DO NOT OFFER THEM YOUR TITTY!!!!!!!

Resist offering them solutions, or answers. Every solution you offer will only be met by more excuses, grumbles and complaints. So respond to everything that they say with a question. By continually asking questions, you can sometimes get them to start looking for answers on their own. Who knows, they might even come up with a solution. But more likely, they will simply shake their heads at you before going off to complain at someone else. Either way, at least they are no longer complaining to you and your titties are left intact, supple and full of milk.  Not to mention the money you’ll save by not having to go through breast augmentation.

Light, love and blessings,
