this phrase bugs me..how about you?

When people say "put on your big girl panties and deal with it" first of all I get grossed out because it reminds me of granny panties..and second of all I think it is just strange..what do you ladies think?

  • I think it is cute. Or we say cowgirl up, or suck it up and move on!

  • I guess if you have heard it too many times it gets tiresome and trite and corny. Just as bad as hearing "Get a life". Anything overdone is annoying,.and sometimes way too tacky. So,it does bug me.
