Cry Baby Cover Ups

Add Insult to Injury with the Cry About It Bandages

— August 17, 2011 — Unique
Everyone has that person in their lives, whether it be a friend, family member or coworker, who likes to whine about anything and everything, and now you can let them know exactly how you feel with the Cry About It Bandages from Urban Outfitters.

The pack of 25 bandages comes with the message "Life's Really Not That Hard" and includes bandages with quotes like "emotional wound," "panda hug," and "kitty scratch" for those moments when the Debbie Downer in your life is getting to be a bit too much to handle.

So the next time your partner is overreacting about a paper cut or your best friend gets dumped by her "on-again off-again" fling, slap one of these Cry About It bandages on them and hope they get the hint.

On the bright side (literally), the bandages come in neon colors, so hopefully the drama queens in your life will look down at their not-so-severe wound and realize that things aren't so bad.
