Entire countries have fallen apart due to the inability of citizens to openly bash people they hate. For an overwhelming majority of history, talking shit had to be done behind closed doors and out loud. My cow did the funniest thing yesterday! No wonder everyone thinks the Amish are so polite and proper: It was only a matter of time before ladies got together and decided that if we were smart enough to create a legitimate institution that revolves around shit-talking, we wanted our right to vote to talk shit about the first lady to be expressed on the ballot.
The telephone: We imagine telegrams at the turn of the twentieth century looking like this: Obviously leaving something to be desired in the details department.
Thank God for the telephone. How else was the news going to get around about other women in the neighborhood and why they sucked? The phone made shit-talking way more detailed. Many people are confused by the distinction between talking shit and gossip. OMG, did you hear Julie fucked a seventeen-year-old prefrosh last week? Cell phone: Cut to seventh grade, when you got your bedazzled Nokia so all the bros-in-training could text you. Welcome to the greatest phenomenon not only for shit-talking but also the Game.
You can bawl Sarah out on her own phone line! The cell phone also facilitated the onset of shit-texting, which has pretty much continued to dominate our lives to this day.
Now we can talk shit without ever having to talk out loud! I mean, can you imagine how the Potsdam Conference might have gone differently if Winston Churchill and Harry Truman were able to text under the table about what an idiot douchebag Joseph Stalin was?
The modern age of shit-talking has been a revolution that we are taking advantage of to the fullest extent. Now I can send all my besties the gross picture that Jenna decided to make her FB default in our group thread. Seriously, our biggest fear at the death of Steve Jobs was that shit-talking might never become holographic. People, especially girls, will always find a reason to talk shit.
So, like they say, there are three lies that you can be certain of: While our shit-talking tendencies may be obvious to outsiders, the language in which we do so is more elusive. Enter Abbrevs, the chicest new dialect since the Tower of Babel. You might wonder how learning to speak in abbreviations will help you win at anything other than pissing off the village grammar Nazi. Fuck this fascist. If you already know how to speak in Abbrevs, you can skip this chapter.
Abbrevs is to English as English is to Olde English. As Paris is to fashion, the thinking goes, so are young women to linguistic innovation. Somewhere, someday, someone wrote something that ended up in the New York Times ever heard of it?
If you take this historical evidence to the furthest logical conclusion, you could even say that we invented words. But we digress. To all those who are unfamiliar with the language of Abbrevs, try not to dismiss it as just another example of stupid girls being complacent with their own stupidity. The standard abbreviations that everyone uses are pretty straightforward, but every once in a while you may come across a girl who speaks in her own special tongue.
Her entire life sounds like one huge instant message from She will actually say these letters in conversation, and usually no one will acknowledge how weird it is. Shoshanna from Girls for a real-world example.
Triz story. Anything can be abbreviated. Get with it, betch! Side note: Sometimes abbreviations become a hybrid between a nickname and an abbreviation. See what we did there with CVS? The most quick-witted among us will know how to cleverly abbreviate things that are already abbreviated.
Last but not least, there is always a caveat. But when betches take over the Supreme C. Adios, ESL! Why put forth the effort to give people a second name when they already have one? Simple answer: Is this book for real? Dec 23, Kate Haddigan rated it did not like it. I found myself skimming chapters because the content was uninteresting and old hat. I understand that it intends to offend 'nice girls' and a lot of the advice should be taken with a pinch of salt.
However, there are a lot of impressionable young ladies out there who I really hope don't start following this 'How-to' manual to the letter. The book relies a little too heavily on movie references. I love dropping a Mean Girls quote into conversation when the timing is right, but the amount of lines borrowed from movies in lieu of original humour suggests that The Betches aren't quite as hilarious as they'd like to have you believe.
As if the book needed anymore fluff to pad it out, they've crammed in lots of superfluous text boxes and pie charts that really do not work in black and white, thus all of the intended hilarity is lost in paperback poverty. Should have waited until you could afford a hardback, full colour copy, Betches. Feb 07, Kayla rated it did not like it Shelves: Could not continue to read such a horrible book Absolutely ridiculous; it made me want to gouge my eyes out.
Don't be fooled by the 4-star rating, I hated this book, it left me with an acrid aftertaste, like vom. Precisely because it is so totally well written and designed.

By privileged, I mean like rich, white, pretty, and groomed to become alpha females in a Chimp world, as opposed to a Bonobo world. The whole book is in that vein. Ok, need like one more proof? The 14th of Feb is for flosers: Throughout the book, there isn't any hint of irony, or any trace of humor, compassion, or any feeling actually; then in the last chapter, the authors let the mask slip a little bit: This " This is about ruling your world.
It's about being the most desired, powerful, manipulative woman you can be. Many people will hate you. Why shouldn't they? You only look out for yourself, you're hotter than them, you know you're better than them. Do they envy you for being happier? Because you're not — that's just not part of the fucking deal. The last word of the last page is "rage", nuff said? Wonder if we must expect a sequel in like 20 years milfezlikethis.
View 1 comment. Disturbing, juvenile, and narcissistic. I kept reading, hoping for the figurative Ashton Kutcher to jump out and tell, "You got punk'd! Should anyone take this book seriously, it is a disturbing social commentary on our generation. Jan 15, Marina Z. Ok, I will judge you if you read this and love it. Yes, this book wasn't meant to be taken seriously.
It's suppose to be funny and entertaining, but goodness I couldn't even laugh my way through it! May 11, Ashley rated it did not like it. I read so much excellent stuff that is self-published, but this is what a publisher is willing to put their money and resources behind. Ok so the people who posted indignant reviews of this book clearly failed to see how obviously tongue-in-cheek this book is.
Hello, the authors call themselves "The Betches"! I really enjoyed it - silly, sure, but laugh-out-loud funny. One of my favorite parts is from the chapter on college: On girls who choose to study abroad in Paris: You'll learn throughout your semester in Paris that French people really fucking hate Americans and wil Ok so the people who posted indignant reviews of this book clearly failed to see how obviously tongue-in-cheek this book is.
You'll learn throughout your semester in Paris that French people really fucking hate Americans and will do whatever possible to ensure that you have a miserable time in their city and never want to come back. If you aren't busy fighting off pickpockets while your garc,on refuses to serve you iced coffee 'I'm afraid zat is impossible.
Le ice is out of season! Oh man, they're everywhere. Whether they're interrupting your outdoor meal to sell you a fucking leaf, or they're hurling their baby at you so you'll drop your purse and they can steal it, there's only one way to stop these crazy nomads.
And that is by demanding that they give you their tears. Feb 11, Claire G rated it it was ok Shelves: The only reason I'm giving it 1. Even though they really shouldn't have been. What possessed me to download this title from Edelweiss?
I have no freaking idea. Before I saw this book I had never heard of "The Betches" or anything to do with them. I am also not one to care about having a "celebrity" body.
Or, really, any of the matters presented in this book. So, maybe it is my fault I don't like this book. All I know is that this book annoying, headache inducing, kinda boring, occasionally funny, and always offensive.
Or at least it was offensive to me in parts. I just I just can't. I don't even know what to say about this book really. Jan 04, Lee rated it did not like it. Satire or not, this dialogue is unacceptable. Jun 09, Amanda Brooks rated it did not like it. From the title of this book, I assumed it would be a funny, lighthearted, and an engaging read. I was sadly mistaken Instead it was pointless, contained not one actual "life lesson" unless you count their continual suggests to become anorexic to get drunk faster a "life lesson" and had a swear word every 5 words.

Wrong, because then the next chapter would discus finding tricks to never having to work a day in your life and how you had to marry someone hot and rich.
