Not the real world

I don't know why in the world they don't take that "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and all them old shows like that off the TV. All it is is a bunch of old hoes teaching kids how to act. And how they act is not how you act in the real world. It's just a bunch of rich hoes acting out. Who cares about "Keeping Up with the Kardashians?"

I don't know why in the world some people have phones, house phones or cell phones. They don't ever answer them. They turn them off so nobody can call them. I don't know why they just don't get rid of them. They are just stupid are too lazy to answer them. What if it was a big emergency and they had their phone shut off?
