Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

I hate this SM! really could this come off as any more sexist? 

As long as he asks any male in the family permission, kid brother, son... if father is not available?

Maybe she's one of TLC's gypsies?

Wonder if his intended is allowed to go anywhere without a male relative escort or without modest dress code.

Oh wow!! Yes!!!  I never saw it till now.

Ray Liotta reminds me of former U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm. Grimm seemed to have modeled himself after Liotta's tough guy /wise guy image too. From wikipedia:

  On July 17, 2015, Grimm was sentenced to eight months in prison for tax evasion.[5] He began his prison term on September 22, 2015 after a brief delay for medical treatments.[6]

And in a confrontation with a reporter:

 Grimm then threatened Scotto, saying that he would "break [Scotto] in half," as well as threatening to throw Scotto over the balcony.[69]

I had basically the same thought the first time I saw the commercial.  Plus, it was obvious from the beginning that it was going to be a kid.  I think it would have bothered me less if they had made the kid a girl, but I find the idea of asking someone else's permission before proposing to be completely ridiculous, whether it be the father, mother, sister, or whoever. 

Plus, I don't know what message that sends when you're asking a child that small.  It makes them think they have say in your relationship.  What if he says no?  How are you going to explain to him that you weren't really asking?

Same here, on all counts.  I find the asking a father's permission to propose to his daughter tradition utterly offensive, and if they'd made this "asking the kid" variation a daughter rather than a son, it might have come off a little better -- still shit on its face, but maybe you could read its subversion of the tradition as mocking it for its sexist ridiculousness.  Having it be a son, though, makes it just as gross as the original -- even though he's just a kid, he's the male, so he gets asked, not the woman actually being proposed to.  The only way I'd like that commercial is if the little kid responded with why on earth the guy was asking him, not her, and walked away from this ridiculous exercise muttering about how he hopes Mom rejects this sexist loser and things get back to normal around here.

There's a new Lifeline ("Help I've fallen and can't get up.") ad that I really want to dislike except I know someone that happened too.

My neighbor fell down the stairs. We later learned he broke his hip. He was unable to move, he couldn't call anyone and ended up with kidney failure because of dehydration. Fortunately a friend of his stopped by to visit and called 911. Those of use living around him had no idea.

I don't know if Lifeline is a good product, but the scenario is not that far fetched.

There was a commercial a few years ago (probably also for Kay Jewelers) where the guy not only asked the woman's daughter, he bought her a little ring, too. *ick*

The elderly mother of a friend of mine fell and broke her hip, her cell phone wasn't in her pocket so she laid on the floor until her grandson came home several hours later. Thankfully she ended up being okay, but she did have to have surgery.

The blonde woman in the Liberty Mutual ad who brandishes a pen & whines about how expensive it is to repair minor damage reminds me of the blonde actress in a cute red & white dress who appeared in the Liberty Mutual ad whining that only lawyers read the policies they buy.  Is it the same person?  If so, she seems to have gained weight & aged (just like real life!).

Yeah, I remembered a commercial where the boyfriend was talking to a little girl, then remembered he was giving her a ring too.  Gross.  

I guess it's an UO that I think it's sweet that the boyfriend was including the child in the decision to marry his mom.  Maybe if they had included a girl it wouldn't seem as sexist.

Progressive 'Act your age Buy your own insurance'- featuring an infuriating millennial baby-man who's being wheeled around in a grocery cart, where he pushes stuff off shelves and drinks milk out of the carton. Later we see him in a (?) daycare, where he's frightened by a pop-up book. Sadly, I know far too many guys who actually dress the way this idiot does (like a six year old) and whose behavior isn't much more mature.

Why does she always wear a top with a plunging neckline and a Wonderbra?  I can't stand her!!  She grins like a hyena.  Food Network always shows "amateur" female cooks with similar outfits and the camera zooms in on their cleavage when they're leaning over to pipe their dessert, etc.  The worst offense, though, is that no one seems to tie up or tie back their long hair on their shows.  Well, I am officially riled up now.

I had an elderly neighbor and one day her newspapers were starting to stack up, so I rang her doorbell, and she said not to worry about her because she sometimes suffered from back pain and didn't always go out to gather her papers.  A few months later the papers started to stack up again and I did nothing.  Soon there was a bad smell.  Her car was there but I thought maybe she'd gone out with family.  Anyway, it turned out she'd had a stroke and laid there for many days before dying.  I still feel really terrible about that.  I remember running around peering in her windows (couldn't see anything), and my boyfriend at the time told me I watched too many Investigation Discovery grisly crime shows.  She didn't answer her door either.

How horrific! My mom lived in an apartment community for seniors - 8 buildings, 4 units per building. The old couple across from her would wait until 11 AM - if Mom's bedroom blinds hadn't opened by then, they called to make sure she was OK. (Our entire family are night owls, sleep late.) Now that I'm getting aged, I probably need to have something like that, but my nextdoor neighbor has mental issues and frequently hides in her "bat cave" for weeks at a time. I suppose Facebook is good for something - if I don't post something daily, SOMEBODY should get alarmed & check on me. And as long as I see Ms. Bat Cave's postings, I know she's just being a recluse.

I was reading the paper today with more stories about the horrific Camp fire (I'm in Northern California) and that insurance commercial (State Farm?) came on with the very annoying woman going on and on about someone burning down her "She Shed." Seems like they could have a little more respect and pull that one from California rotation until the state is not on fire.

And why would I not be surprised if the insurance companies wind up NOT paying ASAP for all those poor souls' lost homes due to the sheer volume of claims with those infernos? All of which makes the timing of the ad even more infuriating. I guess time will tell though.

By that measure, with the frequency of major fires in California, they'd have little chance to advertise. The woman in the "she shed" ad is saying that her shed was deliberately burned down. Homeowners insurance generally doesn't cover arson, so I guess the point of the ad is that theirs does, although I'm not sure what viewers they're targeting for whom that would be a concern.

The lack of evidence of rain would suggest that's a lie, so he probably just wanted to be sure the damage would be covered. Since she told the agent "it finally happened", she was apparently expecting it, had discussed the possibility with the agent, and already knew it would be covered.

I originally thought the husband torched Sheila's chi-chi she-shed (along with a bunch of other people I asked about it), but I think it's clear (after seeing the damn thing too many times) that it was supposed to be lightning. I doubt they are actually paying for advertising promoting insurance fraud.

If one or both of them had said no (for some invalid reason, not because they knew something horrible about him), would you not have married him? 

In addition to finding the tradition offensive, I'm stumped by the pointlessness -- if the male being asked for permission/blessing says, "No, you cannot ask my daughter/mother to marry you," what then?  Dude skulks home and never sees her again?  Presumably, no, the two people who want to get engaged do so (and if it's her father who said no, tell him to get stuffed, and if it's her son, help him deal with his jealousy/fear of abandonment/whatever issue he has going on), so what was the point of asking him?

Becoming a stepparent is a commitment on top of the marriage, so I would have found the commercial cute if we met these two after the woman had been asked, said yes, and told the little boy what this was going to mean for the family, and we were seeing the man have some sort of special moment with the kid, saying he was just as excited to become his stepdad as to become Mom's husband or something.  That I'd find sweet.  As aired, though, not at all.

On top of the big issue, I - like the original poster - am annoyed by the obviousness of it; it plays like it's a big reveal that he's talking to a kid rather than a father, but I knew the first time I saw it that it was a kid.  I was just waiting to see if it was a girl or boy so I knew how loudly to grumble.

It's not fraud if you don't have to lie about the cause because insurance is going to cover it either way. It might be cheaper to pay off a few extra claims than be investigating each one.

Actually, the tradition of asking a parent (or other loved one) for a women's hand in marriage was always done AFTER first proposing marriage to the woman.

My husband is first-generation American.  He proposed to me and then days later asked my mother (my father is deceased) for my hand.  She was charmed by it, and so was/am I.  I don't know what you find so offensive about this.  To me, marriage is the joining of two families, and this is illustrative of that.

I couldn't stand the commercial where the guy asked his girlfriend's daughter for permission to marry her mother only because the guy talked in a breathless, panting, serial killer voice.

Because it treats the woman like property to be handed off from one man to another (there's a reason it's the man doing the asking), and that's made all the worse in this commercial when the "man" being asked is her young son.

But what happens if he says no?  The timing doesn't change my confusion -- if they still get married, then it's pointless for him to have been asked (and if he has veto power over her decision to get engaged, then we're back to the offensiveness).

I would have been pretty surprised if either one had had said no, so I honestly never thought about it!  To answer your question, I would have married him anyway.  (See either way I think a person answering this is screwed - you either listen to your kids OR you say yes to the dress.)

He asked them after he asked me if that makes any difference.  They were like, "Uh, sure.....you guys ARE adults, right?"  It was kinda funny.

I do believe the asking for a hand in marriage in years past is based on property,  but in reality no one today thinks of women as property, it is just a nice thing to do.  I am 53 (52 when I wed for the second time) self supporting, own a home, car, etc, no one thinks of me as property.  My kids weren't "handing me off" to a man, just like my dad (had he been alive when I wed the first time) would not have been "handing me off."

I think the commercial is cute although I would never buy a Neil Lane ring from Kay Jewelers.  I do not like Kay!  "Every kiss begins with Kay" is waaaay more offensive than this ad, lol!

I think a "no" is supposed to be accompanied by some compelling reasons that the couple may not be aware of (e.g. she's his sister) so that they can reevaluate whether to continue with their plans.

There are several wedding traditions based on that premise; e.g., the father "giving away" his daughter.  Obviously, women can propose marriage, too, and no one thinks the man is someone's property to be handed off to the woman.  Do you find it offensive if a man holds a door open for you?  Do you suspect he thinks you're too weak to open the door yourself?  There are lots of old-fashioned traditions that still crop up from time to time, and while I find some of them amusing, I don't think I could say any of them offend me.

Looking for different avenues that offer better insurance, but finding it hard to find one that pays well.  If it gets to the year that I have on the freebies, we decided I'm going to use a credit card to pay our way to the deductible, and let the insurance cover it after that.  Then I'll have a year to pay off my deductible.  Sucks that you have to even consider that.

We were at a restaurant with a buffet a few weeks back, and a middle school age kid decided to give an impromptu dance recital in everyone's way.  Anyone who pushed past, said "excuse me" or was visibly unamused got an ugly look from her mom, who thought it was adorable.

Looking for different avenues that offer better insurance, but finding it hard to find one that pays well.  If it gets to the year that I have on the freebies, we decided I'm going to use a credit card to pay our way to the deductible, and let the insurance cover it after that.  Then I'll have a year to pay off my deductible.  Sucks that you have to even consider that.

I use a broker at Health Markets, have been ever since I couldn't get the website at the Exchange to work for me. It's free and they shop all the different plans for you. I love it.
