You're Wrong About Voicemail

My mother is untrainable. At least, as far as voicemail is concerned. We'd repeat the same song and dance over and over. Me: Stop leaving me voicemails. Her: I don't understand. This went on for years, until I figured out she was right all along. » 10/14/14 11:28am 10/14/14 11:28am

Get Pissed: You're Still Paying More Than Men Do for Deodorant

Dear Faceless Overcharged Everywoman: Did you know you are still paying as much as 30 cents more per stick of deodorant than a man "version" for no good reason, when, if anything, a dude's deodorant needs more of the anti-pit stink stuff in it?

The Internet has spoken: Quit with the bullshit. Your diet is not fun. You didn't eat that donut you posed with on Instagram.

Cosmo's Guide To Sex In Cars Actually Ruins Having Sex In Cars
