Mother Bear is on the prowl

So my November TOUV column came out yesterday and I’m sharing the link. I know, you’re probably just dying to hear about who I’ve offended this month. Who could it be, the community public works department? Librarians? How about grocery stores in general?

While these were all top contendors for my Let Me Yell In Public column, I ended up finding something that I’m darn right passionate about. And considering the fact that you’re a mother, you probably are too.

Here’s the link.


  1. Loved it! And the only people you could possibly offend here are the speed limit offenders! And in my oh-so-humble opinion… they deserve to be offended. 🙂 Great article, and keep on writing!

  2. (BTW- I used the last sentence of your article as my status on FB today. (I gave you full credit- I promise!)

  3. You go, girl!

  4. I’m sure he did have an accident….better him than your kids!

  5. LOLOLOL!!!! Love it, Mama Bear!!

  6. Way to go, Annie! I’m glad you gave that biker the what’s what. Mommy Bear Syndrome is a powerful thing. I’m usually a gutless wonder but when it comes to my kids: claws out, fangs out, rabies ON. Proud of you!

  7. read it yesterday, direct from the source. Loved it!

  8. Love it.

  9. Good for you! I will actually yell LOUDLY at anyone, even next door neighbor if I have to, when they drive too quickly down the street. Especially when they speed by the kids who are on the way to the bus stop! There are some really stupid, oblivous people out there.

  10. LOL! That was awesome. I am happy I’m not the only one that gets my dander up once in a while.

  11. Great article. I remember that story! You make me laugh and want to be a better mother bear 🙂

  12. Kudo’s to you Annie! That was a great article.

  13. GOOD FOR YOU!!!!! We used to have drag racers on our street. As much fun as it was trying to get their license plates while spying through the blinds with binoculars, I was very glad when it stopped.

  14. Oh yeah. I can see it all now. I read a book once by Stephen King and in it was a saying (I have a book where I write things down I like from books I read )——-anyway
    That was a lesson well learned that day by that young man.
    In our cul de sac when my kids were young, we had a neighbor who basically sat and watched for people going to fast in and out of our circle.
    He’d throw things at them and chase them down.

    Way to go Miz Griz

  15. The thing is, I never saw anything offensive in what you wrote…
