I just cringe when these dumb ads come on. I am in the prime of my child bearing years right now and would like to have children at some point but when these ads come on..... I'd slit my own wrists before having a kid. The kids are obnoxious,screaming and dirty. Not to mention they try to make the kids funny by saying things like "that's disgusting!" When talking about mom and dad on a date night. When that kid says that line my irritation levels rise to maximum capacity. And you want me to go online and pick a person to watch my kids??! Are you insane, who actually would use this service. I know they do background checks blah blah blah but there are plenty of pervs or other deviants out there that have nothing in their background because they have never been caught. Just for fun I searched my area for babysitters, disturbingly half of them were middle aged men. Its a pedophiles playground if you haven't been caught yet. It blows my mind that someone would ever use them when looking for care for their kids or pets.

It always bothers me how the CEO/spokeswoman always laughs whenever she first speaks in her commercials. It sounds like: "At Cahare.com..."

My personal most-hated-to date commercial is a care.com spot. This gem:


There I am, minding my own business, watching a movie on cable, fade to commercial and I get just enough warning to know it's coming but not enough to get to the remote... screaming baby. Complete with extreme close-up of the little pink toothless ear rapist. Everyone even remotely involved with care.com can burn in a special place for even once, if even briefly, thinking that this shrill shrieking snotgoblin would be welcome in anyone's home. This commercial runs about 5 times and hour during the afternoon, and just like the "your brush bar is clogged" warning system on the gen 1 Dyson upright, it gets you every time.

Now, the other side of the coin is this; the little girl at the end doing the Force Choke.. I love her.

Kids are alway hilarious when they aren't yours and you can give them back - this I know.

My kids.. your kids.. Billythe Kids.. I don't care.com whose kids, I'd rather listen to a lion try to climb a chalk board for an hour that listen to baby shriek for 10 seconds. It's just a sound that grates on me, always has been.

Yep, baby screaming is one the most annoying and irritating sounds in the world IMHO.

The kids outside my apartment make me want to feed my uterus to African wild dogs instead of having babies. They are at it right now. I don't even think they ever go home for dinner or something.

You know what's really great birth control?  Seeing screeching kids throwing tantrums in the front of the store when they want candy or toys as you ring up the adults in the family for paper products, milk, and eggs... I think, "I am so glad I don't have kids."Disapprove

LOL  The kids were screaming at the time. I can hear them on the third floor with the AC on and music blasted. It is SO unfair! Maybe if I sicced African wild dogs on them, but that would not be very nice or legal. Angry

I cannot stand the sound of a shrieking child. It is an irritation that is on a whole new level. I hate the way the parents look at you after their child has shrieked to the high heavens...they smile like oh he's just going through a stage isn't it funny? No! It isn't funny. What stage might that be? The annoying stage that lasts from 0-18? Unless you want me to "accidently" hip bump your kid into a row of cereal boxes when I walk by in return for that blood curdling screech then I suggest next time you want to take junior on an outing you strap a muzzle on that mouth and save everyone from losing the highly valuable sense known as hearing.

Oh yes the shrieking child that roams in the vicinity that we like to call our home. Relaxing place of peace and quiet? Not here...we have incompetent parental figures that either don't care or think it's cute. My fav is the long shriek down the long hallway. It gets all the dogs barking and I am convinced it is a call to all obnoxious children in the area to come join in on the game. Syn my dear, those wild african dogs will be well fed tonight as I am going to have to join you in donating my uterus to the cause.

0-18???  Hell, I've heard women in their 40s shriek with excitement when they meet up, just because they hadn't seen each other for a few months.  And if one of them got a new hairdo in the meantime---forget it!  "Ahhhhh!!!  It's so cuuuute!!!"

I decided long ago not to have kids, and the crying babies in these ads just reinforces the wisdom of that decision (just for myself, not commenting on anyone else's decision to breed)

Oh yes...the over 40 scream is pretty annoying as well. I mean really do we all need to hear you shriek about your bff's hairdo b*tch? No..no we don't. Yes annoying comes in all shapes and sizes it unfortunately does not discriminate. Sigh...if only annoying could be more discriminate...we would have a shred of peace.

I am in my prime of child bearing years, but have not felt any "ticking clock" or craving to give birth. Let's see give up late nights aimlessly wandering the internet, afternoon naps, being "in shape", and just plain being able to do whatever the hell I want when I want to do it...and in exchange I get a screaming human that you have to take care of FOREVER! No thanks, I am way to selfish for that. Not to mention how absolutely disgusting giving birth is in itself. Most of my peers cannot comprehend why I would not want a two legged monster and why I refer to them as it instead of he or she. No thanks....tootles to my ovaries won't be needing you any time ever!
