Title: Ranting,Rants get it all out!
Post by: Magnolia on April 27, 2012, 04:18:14 am
I thought we can start a public thread  if you are frustrated about anything get it all out.
I just saw the DM article about the poachers that killed 22 family of elephants.China was involved with Africa there has to be some sort of global movement to stop this sue these greedy nations.Pretty soon there won't be any wild animals left.Then you think these countries along with others kill woman and children also.So much for 2012 being an enlightened year.

THANK GOD!!

I just contacted an upscale events company and offered a chacne ot help them get to a few posh events. I was insulted by the owner who basically said that they wouldn't send me their clients and it ticked me off since I was offering to help them get the tickets and sell them through THEIR company.

I am also angry at companies who supposedly promise to fund businesses, but then end up saying that they don't fund this or that.

I was approached to do a fundraiser, I created a product which was deemed "not pretty enough" by the people I'm doing the fundraiser for however many other customers loved them. Then after changing everything they wanted AND lowering the price $5, they waited 4 days BEFORE the order forms were due to tell me I needed to make changes to the flier so they could send them out*   :screaming: bignono

^ One of my cinema pet peeves, along with not putting your phone on  'Silent mode' before the movie starts.

If it's really an emergency, then go outside the theatre. Don't annoy other movie-goers please.

Bicyclists in auto lanes!  The State of California requires bicycle owners to pay a fee to license their bikes that then covers the cost for BICYCLE LANES, which are aplenty.  They dodge in/out of traffic, drive between cars and turn without warning.  It is my job to not only drive responsibility but keep an eye out for these insects because it would be my fault if I accidentally hit one of them.  '*despise* their helmets, too.  A lot of good that little salad bowl on your head will do against my 3000 pound Mercedes driving over you.

The only good news is that the police can pull them over for drunk driving, which is also a major problem.

Ah, so that old german tank of yours is still running smoothly then :tehe:
Trust me I *despise* them as well
In our region we have lot's of biking clubs ( the bycicle ones not the hell's angles type of bikers)
And every darn Sunday the come together a ride in group's of up to thirty ppl in the middle of the road thinking they are Lance Armstrong riding the tour du france or something!
If you dare honk at them to make them move, they'll look at ya like "What! I'm riding a bike here can't you see that!) :angry:

Ha!  Yes, the white beauty is running just fine.  She even had a facelift!

Oh, the Arrogance Factor with bicyclists?  Don't get me going.  They look, if they look at all, at you as if you're the big pollutionist and they're all green and everything, when, in fact, factories spew out cr@p to make those streamlined over-expensive vehicles/bicycles that they're riding, too. 

I wouldn't care.  I really wouldn't, if they'd just use the bike lanes.  But, they don't!!!!!  Well, some do.  And, to top it off, a lot of them have children on the back seat.  There should be a law against that; there reallllly should.

Being a huge motorcycle fan, I hesitate to b#tch about that as well, but they are also a bunch of jerks.  They ride right down the strip between cars that may or may not be changing lanes.  It truly makes me want to sideswipe 'em.

Aaaah, road rage.  The California Condition.

Post by: YooperModerator on May 18, 2012, 01:26:30 am
 ??? well what do you need it for?
For just some short distance around the city and shopping now and then?
or do you need to spend hours in it everyday for work like a salesman?
If it's for the first: buy something that is small & low on gasoline (think Mini, VW polo or Fiat 500)
if it's the latter: you should look more for comfort and speed.(think Audi, BMW or Mercedes)

^^Gia?  Do you mean not knowing how to deal with buying a car or having the car itself?

If you need help in buying a car, holler.  I live in Auto World, which is nothing to brag about, but having never had a car payment in my entire life, I know a tidbit or two about the tricks of buying a car.  It's a lot like snagging a man.

Statistically Mazda is the car with less repairs I've read. While Peugeot needs repairs quite often.

A rule; Expensive cars are expensive in repairs.

Jus saw these thank you for your answers! It's what to do about a car that is costing a lot in repairs . It's a nightmare! We are looking at buying. But I don't know. It just looks so expensive when I set out to do it , I just don't understand that world at all. I guess I don't know where to start.

I had a neighbor who would leave his dog tied up and forget that it needed things like food and water, so everyday I would stretch my hose and shoot water over the fence in to the dish that was dry and then throw food over where he could reach it.

One day the neighbor told me to mind my own business so I called animal control out.  :snob: The man from the shelter was so surprised that the dog seemed to know me better than it knew his owner. He told me not to feed or water it the next day so he could come and find the dog doing without. He came back a couple of days later and took the dog away from the neighbor. The neighbor moved but before he did he made sure I knew he thought I was a busy body, I just laughed at him.  :P  Better people moved in after he left.  :sigh: :sigh:

 :laugh:
Sorry hon I know I shouldn't laugh with your little annoyance of the day
But I don't have kid's so I will not have that issue any time soon :P

If it happens when I'm in a shop I always feel a bit sorry for the mum/dad
Because I know that in 99% of the cases it's just a one time thing for the kid (they wana test the lines a bit)
It really doesn't mean the kid's are bad behaved and spoiled brad's they just have an excellent feel for the right 'drama-timing' lol
And it's always on a moment when you really don't need it!
Usually there's one or two older females in the waiting line who give a comment like 'if that were my kid...'

The only exception to that 99% rule that I know of is Suri Cruise now that girl is a spoiled rotten little brat! bignono

^^Ughhh, the screaming kids in the store thing.  I'd blocked that out of my memory bank for a bit.  One of my sons was notorious for that; I couldn't take him anywhere, so you have my most deepest sympathy, AVP.  I even had to put the little brat on a body leash or he'd have run out in traffic.  He learned the hard way, finally.  One day he put up such a scene that I had to bodily pick him up, throw him in the back seat and take off in such a hurry that I left his birthday cake on top of the car which, of course, slid off when I took off in the car.  He got to see it run over by the car behind us.

He never pulled a scene in public again.

I just have the 2nd part of my final exams at the uni. My favorite teacher, who is funny, clever and very kind was the examiner both times. and he was an *butt face* both times. Seriously. He even wrote for me a recommendation letter last month...
Oh and I told everything about the topic, he asked 1 question I could not answer, who was the pres of the confederacy and I said the wrong date for the Bill of Rights..and he gave me a 4. (5 is the best mark in Hungary).
I am so frickin' disappointed in that man.  :angry: :angry:

This is a vent that I'm struggling with because people have freedom of speech and are allowed to believe whatever they want, that being said, I never realized how anti-gay one of my best friends was until this past week with the whole chick fil a debacle.

My husband and I are raising our kids to believe that they can love and marry whomever they want regardless of race or gender, we will love and support them regardless.

Again my friend and his wife have every right to feel the way they want to feel, but for a week now they have been posting numerous Facebook updates about how traditional marriage was right and gay marriage is wrong and honestly, I'm about to blow a gasket.

You have my full sympathy.

Unfortunately there still is a lot of *despise* against homosexuals also here. Happily homosexuals are now allowed to get married in church here in Denmark. 

These situations are difficult. What to do?

I have been in a similar situation where close family always insisting on debating their *despise* against muslims. I always participated in the discussion because I don't want to be a passive bystander. But other familymembers has with tears in their eyes asked me to turn the other cheek. So now when the issue once again turns up at dinners we all look away and talk about something else quite demonstratively.

I don't know what is best.

If I had my way I would speak my mind whenever discriminating people use their freedom of speach.

^^ and ^ I hear ya.  Our family holiday get togethers used to be a minefield of conversation with everybody split right down the middle on everything.  Drink Heavily was my Holiday Motto.  With all of the things in the world worth getting worked up about I never understood the problem with gay anything.  Not my business, not my issue, more worried about starving children/people.  That usually shuts things down.

But, my pet peeve is when people thrust their spiritual, political, what have you, beliefs down my throat and judge me for my own.  This is America and they're allowed to do that, but I was raised to not discuss things like money or religion in a group setting because it's none of my business.  Take it out in the voting booth!!!

I'm so fed up  :bat:

There is one in my family that always stir up trouble. And again this year he is doing his "trick" again. As always after a family get together he tells to some in the family that other familymembers thinks he or she did this or that.  :bat:

This year he starts a rumour that everyone is talking about one cousin neglected to talk to another cousins wife. Last year is was me - rumour has it that everyone was talking about I didn't help enough  :bat:

This troublemaker is such a vicious person. He will end up in Hell - but in the meantime we have to endure his presence at least 2 times a year.

But every time we meet she just has to rub in that last amazing trip to Sri Lanka and her 400$ shoes she just bought last week in London! 'rolleyes'

I remember when my great-grandmother died, her daughter-in-law was telling my mom (who was the Executor of the Will) to go through her pockets to see if she couldn't find any spare change, and kept hasseling my mom about the will, to make absolutely sure she got her share.  Also, my mom's half-brother (who I've never met) only called and talked to my mom until he got his part of the estate as well.  After that, he never called her back :angry:

When my Sister died we were all gathered in the hospital room and as soon as the Doctor pronounced her dead her DIL said "Give me that coat of hers because she won't be using it anymore" then when the will was read the same DIL had a fit in front of everyone because she was married to the eldest Son and my Sister divided her estate equally between her three children. The ugly cow wanted it all.

The family told my Nephew that he would be invited to all family gatherings but he could not bring his woman with him, so we never see her any more.

One person greets another followed by another soon the aisle is hard to navigate because people are standing there absent-mindingly chatting away. Make a hole people!

animal abuse of any kind makes me crazy - but bird hunting in the UK is the worst!  They have killed the indigenous population of birds so they have to import them from factory farms in the US - they get shipped chicks with plastic to keep their beaks shut so they can't peck each other (they are so crowded) - many die on the trip to the UK - then they are kept in pens til they mature.  Essentially tame now - incapable of living wild because they do not know how to find food - then are released - then beaters scare them into the path of the shooters.  They can't even fly.  Hundreds are killed in a typical shoot - and then the carcasses are not even used for food - they are left to rot in piles in the woods or burned. 

PC and his sons routinely do this - yet they will then talk about living sustainably - hey PC - let's think about all the greenhouse gases released by flying thousands of birds to the UK!!  There is a carbon footprint for you.

47 million birds per year that are farm raised for the so called sport.

Here's what I'm sick of:

Men moaning and complaining about not finding someone decent, but they waste all their time with trash and go figure, end up miserable and cynical. I get sick of this idea that responsible women who have careers are bashed, but since no men are coming along and marrying, well, what are we supposed to do? Sick of it.

Responsible women like to have fun too.

KF,

This might come off bad, but I think when dudes go looking for trash and end up with it, it is kind of like social engineering for the smart gals.  By getting rid of the idiots  (men) to the idiots (party girls), then that leaves the good and smart dudes for gals who really want the good and smart dudes.  Someone who looks like Alfred E. Newman and is a good egg, is highly preferable to the Adonis who has the character of pond scum.  JMHO

Oh, and my rant, I am so sick of how this season seems to bring out the absolute worst in people.  The stories of people waiting outside for a day to be the first one in to a store the day after a holiday is sickening.  I went to Whole Foods yesterday, BIG mistake, I was pushed, a nasty little carpet crawler put his grubby little hands in the free cheese samples (yes, I am irked, not to mention grossed out, Whole Foods does not sell cheap cheese), and that psycho who kept talking TMI on the next stool at the bar in Whole Foods  :o egads, just drink your Reindeer Brewsky and watch the game on TV.  The story of the complainers of UPS, uh hello, stop procrastinating and you will not have those problems.  This is why I dread this time of year, you cannot escape these miserable old coots.  Civilization is in a downfall.   :bat: :bat: :bat: :bat:

^I love Whole Foods (guilty pleasure).  I'd be ticked off, too.

My rant, and God forgive me, but it's people bringing one and two year olds to Christmas Eve service, which is a major Holy service in my church, that falls on the quiet and meditative side, our local chamber orchestra was there, the music was beautiful but the screaming infants drowned out the whole thing.  I get it that there may not be a babysitter available but there has to be somebody who would be willing to switch and attend the Christmas service and allow the majority of people to at least hear what's going on and focus on the purpose of the night of nights.  Or take the baby downstairs!

For me, a Christened infant doesn't belong at service at any time; there are volunteers downstairs.  I know.  Big grinch here.

OOTP - LOL - exactly - I say this about the guys who are trophy wife hunters - what they get is a girl who is hunting a trophy husband - so great - let em marry each other so the rest of us are spared having to mistakenly marry any of them !


In desperation I once took my two year old to Easter Mass - she sat there the whole time - singing out "Alleluia" in that very loud squeaky voice that only a two year old has.  My hubby actually moved away from us - I think he was trying to pretend he wasn't with us. 

My rant for today - home heating oil prices - please tell me why we now have to pay 4.30 per gallon?  The stuff used to cost less than 2 per gallon - I have this old farmhouse - leaks everywhere for the heat to escape - it is costing us a fortune!

^Rant-worthy, cate.  Among many, many other things, home heating was on the Top Ten list of reasons why my husband and I moved away from Michigan to go to California.  We had oil heat and to replace it with gas was an impossibility.

It was horrific and no amount of 'weatherizing' was going to help an old antique home be efficient.  We always said we were heating the outdoors more than we.  This was back in 1999 or 2000 and our Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar heating bills each topped out at over or above $400/month. Total utilities with the darkened winters were over $150/month. I can only imagine what it all is now.  My home that I'm in now, I built or more accurately, supervised the building and I made sure that cement was poured into the walls and major insulation in the roof.  Tall chimney and copper piping everywhere.  SO expensive, but so worth it.

About all I can say and get completely annihilated for it is Drill Baby, Drill.  Or, as we did, if one can, move.  My hubby just about fainted when we received our first utility bill in California and it was $35 and that was ALL utilities combined.   Oh, don't get me started.  Sorry!  Too late! But, for another vent, if anybody thinks it's inexpensive living in a winter climate, they are super, uber wrong.  Winter tires, roof care, auto underbody rust protection, weatherizing, plowing, clothing, lousy medical care, wear and tear on vehicles, higher auto insurance rates, blah, blah, blah.

I have a fantasy that every single dumba$$ that took out huge a$$ loans to pay for a lifestyle or pay for a worthless university degree ends up being denied a passport to vacation. I am sick of idiots taking out insane loans to go overseas and turn the rest of the world into their little playground. I am sick of seeing Jenny and Jeremy Jerkoff spend all the time and money in the world (money that isn't even theirs in the first place) living it up, but when the crash comes, ends up dragging the rest of the entire nation down with them and then demand complete amnesty, no matter the cost to the rest of wider society.

In my view, if you can't afford university, you should just become more resourceful and by the time later in life that you hit university, you'll actually APPRECIATE having the money to go earn a good education. Instead of wasting four years and then whining about not being allowed to get a 'good job' with the degree in Final Fantasy or Lord of the Rings.

Jus saw these thank you for your answers! It's what to do about a car that is costing a lot in repairs . It's a nightmare! We are looking at buying. But I don't know. It just looks so expensive when I set out to do it , I just don't understand that world at all. I guess I don't know where to start.


look at leasing - you can get leases in the 100 a month range if your credit score is good - but even leases for 150 a month are not uncommon - the advantage is that there is no big down payment - after usually 3 years you rbing it back and get another one - so typically you are not having repair bills

we leased and love it - we bought the car I have now - and I will lease the next one

They are going to take out your tooth and then put another one there? I recommend you that you think it through before you do it.

Maybe having an space in your mouth is not the most beautiful thing but an artificial tooth is very painful and also a long process. My father has two and after seeing him going through it I wouldn't do it.

One of the peasants they made it look like it is an easy process but it is not. They have to put bolts in your gum so the teeth can be stable. And not everyone accepts the bolts so you may pay do it and then get an infection or god knows what in your mouth.

It also hurts a lot. A LOT.

My Rant: I have nowhere to write this so I am just going to post it here because I'm really frustrated and I don't know what's going on. So, I think everyone knows I live a life that's almost crazy and different from normal. Basically, I experience dreams about anything and everything that becomes reality. Well, late last year I went to America and met a man I recognised from my past lives. Even the psychics I visited described him perfectly - down to the T. It didn't work out and I am not even talking to him anymore and yet I am still dreaming of him. And it is driving me insane!!!

All the dreams I've had since January have been of him and it's really annoying because I don't think it would work out between us and I just wish it would stop. Last night I dreamt of being with my high schools friends. We were at a psychic convention and we were in a store looking at Spells. I didn't buy anything though I wished I could get a psychic reading. However, my mum was leaving work early to pick me up so we left the convention without purchasing anything. Then the dream changed, and I was meeting the man in a shopping mall outside a particular store. I love sales and specials, so he was waiting for me at the store. He had just finished with a client and it was obvious he was tired and that he needed a "break" and he preferred to go through his emails than going shopping. I didn't mind and in the end we didn't go shopping, instead we went back to my hotel room and I gave him a hug and told him everything would be okay and that whatever trauma he is going through would stop.

^I think the dream is trying to tell me that he needs a "break" because he is such a hard worker but we're not even together so what am I supposed to do about it? I've had other dreams as well about him. I've already talked to a psychic about it and she told me I would have a choice between this man and another man that I will meet within the next 6 months. But what I find really frustrating is that I keep dreaming of him!

Disgusting Danish zoo killing a giraffe along with other animals with some lame excuse about his genes.If he didn't want him to reproduce why didn't that zoo neutered him instead of savagely killing him.That zoo is recycling animals the giraffe was fed to the lions so they wouldn't have to but food.This shouldn't be called a zoo is should be called a slaughter farm and it should be closed down.But that Danish gov are allowing a lot of cruelty towards animlas in that country from dolphins been butchered to live animals being used as target practice.Mother nature you are good and well as tough go and do your stuff!

Yes why have them there reproducing then killing them makes no sense.There was a story a long time ago of zoos in the US the older animals were so sold to damn hunters for profit and were butchered in the most despicable way.

I have a special place for resentment in my heart for the dumb-nut ditz-bunnies known as credit union accountants. I ordered them to NOT allow the bank to allow overdrafts to cover bills and the dumb-wits let it happen again! For the second time! I now have to pay a $30 bounce fee and the dip-wits apparently let it happen once before. They fixed it the first time (yet while it was happening I was having a heart and panic attack) and now again, it happened. They said PayPal allowed it (I'll deal with them later!) and yet THEY are supposed to ensure that this doesn't happen. *fools*. This is why I dislike credit unions and banks; they let overdrafts happen and then soak the customer. Frankly I think overdraft protection should be banned.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lone_Dr%C3%B8scher_Nielsen

Lone Droscher created a project in Central Kalimantan to deal with the swelling numbers of orphaned orangutans. The sanctuary is designed to hold up to 100 orphaned orangutans while they go through rehabilitation. In addition to quarantine cages, medical clinic, and nursery, the sanctuary has a large area of forest in which orangutans can learn the skills needed to live in the wild. Many of these orangutans are only weeks old when they arrive, and all of them are psychologically traumatized.The sanctuary not only saves the mostly orphaned baby orangutans from the local farmers and illegal pet-traders, but has developed a process for their gradual re-introduction to the remaining Borneo rainforest.

I am going to be upfront and say that I dislike stay at home mothers. It's not that they are demons (although their empty spaces where their brains should be would make a perfect vessel for possession), but that they view raising kids as a job, a hard job, instead of something they enjoy doing. First, you agreed to get pregnant and have the little spud. Second, you wouldn't have that huge house if your husband weren't paying for it and working like a fiend to be able to afford it.

These are the women who can't understand why their idiot teen ends up committing a crime, bullying someone, or ends up drunk driving. They are also the ones who like to 'raise awareness' of realities that others are fully aware of thought "Mommy Blogging" and various other stuff, like drunk driving. They have all the time in the world, but choose to ship their kids off to summer camp, school during the day, and then decide to declare the importance of holy motherhood all day.

First, if your husband makes enough to afford a huge house and support a family, you should be homeschooling your kids and giving them the best education possible. Not farming them out to substandard education and then teaching their little precious Polly how to land a man and terrorize the other girls. If I ever get married to a man who wants to be the sole breadwinner (and I wont'), I wont' farm my kids to the public schools, I'll be teaching them at home and on my own time.

Second, the minute you quit, your husband will likely reach a breaking point, that will end in divorce; you might get something, but these days most women don't get much. You have got to plan for your own life. Third, most men will cheat if you don't maintain your looks; you have all day, look a lot more presentable. Don't look like a slob (never wear sweatpants) and do not gain too much weight. You have time on your hands, maintain yourself and your looks for your breadwinner's sake.

Now, the real inkling I got towards resentment was the 9-11 upper class housewives who got a huge chunk of change, but were completely ungrateful. They complained that the amount they got was only a few year's salary. Of course, it never occurred to them that they should downscale their lives and start getting back into the workforce and it's not like they wouldn't be able to afford school for themselves and selling the house would have netted them a lot as well.

How on earth do housewives get fat anyway? There are good meats they can buy and there are a lot of fresh vegetables. It's not like it's impossible to find good fruit as well that can have a mild laxative effect and help melt that fat away. With all that time, why not exercise? Housework isn't majorly time consuming, not these days and frankly husbands need intimacy, but these women are uninterested after they gain the ring and ten extra pounds. Lazy wenches, all of them.

Lastly, I dislike their smug "I am holy and good because I managed to get a nice wallet" sanctimonious patronizing of people they deem beneath them. They aren't good because they got a supportive husband, they are lucky, that is all. That ring they gained could have easily gone towards someone else with them slogging away at some low end job (something that can still happen after the divorce) and tired of how they deliberately evade any adult responsibility in any area.

There is no way that housework takes more than just a few hours and realistically, after the kids start being trained in housework, they will end up having even more time on their hands. Once the kids are sixteen, even more time is granted to them, so why on earth is there any real work? Men do housework in their apartments before they marry and so technically should women and so men know it's not that big of a deal/chore/drama.

Becoming a housewife is basically obsolete and the majority of the women who want a man to pay their way should just become a mistress. All they're good for. I'm really surprised that it still stands in this time; women who have careers are not harlots and a lot of women killing their spouses are housewives who want money.

Wow.


My sister is a stay at home mom with her three children, while her husband works at a job where he barely makes over minimum wage. 

They got married when she was 20 and he was 21, and they were both in the Air Force.  Their first child was born when she was 27, and she was still in the Air Force. My brother-in-law had gotten out a couple of years earlier, and was working for a landscaping company.  After my sister turned 28, she "retired" from the Air Force, and she and her husband moved to Tennessee to be closer to his family.  She then had my niece, who was born in December of 2012, and then her youngest was born just this last January (neither pregnancy was planned, and she is now getting surgery done to make sure she doesn't have any more kids.)

They don't live in a big house.  They live in a rental.  They both drive used vehicles.  My sister went to school and has her Bachelor's Degree, and will be going back for her Master's Degree.

So how dare you say that stay at home mothers have "empty spaces where their brains should be" and just assume that all stay at home mothers have husbands who have a lot of money?

Most of the time, women stay home with their children because daycare is too expensive.  Most of the time, it costs a minimum of $500 a month for childcare, and most of the time it is much more than that.   A lot of times it comes down to the mom working just so she can pay for daycare, and it's not worth it to some moms.

Being a stay at home mother is a life choice. It's not a life choice that I would have wanted but I appreciate that for some women it is a life choice.

When you make a life choice you have to accept that there are some aspects that will not work in your favour, For example, income in retirement will be effected if you have not worked since having children.

Kuei Fei, you said in your original post that you disliked stay at home mothers.  Now you're saying you didn't actually mean real stay at home wives and mothers, but what does that even mean?  Women who live in suburban areas who stay at home with their children probably do so for the same reason women in urban areas do. 

I'm sorry, but you made a generalization about a certain sect of people, and that's something that I have an issue with.  Do you even know any women who are stay at home moms?

^That's beyond cruel. 

My rant is over one of about 8 fire alarms that are in my house but the one built into the wall and over 15 feet up near the ceiling that is beeping only when I sit down and I can't reach it with a ladder so I've been beating it with a broomstick which is meaningless but I have no idea what to do with it!!!!!    :bat: :bat: :bat:

I went to a dinner once. The firealarm beeped every 5 minutes due to lack of battery. My hosts were older people and they didn't hear the constant beeping. At the end of the evening I got new batteries in the damn thing.

Also, I'm an idiot with my digital clocks and the time changed while I was gone so I'm all screwed up looking in manuals for everything.  Rant!!!!!

KF I understand your opinion. If you have kids you should enjoy them, although it isn't always easy.
My sister is a 'housewife', not because of the children but simply because she doens't want to work. The eldest goes to secondary school next school year and the other one will be in the last grade of primary school. She used to bring up the kids as an excuse, but the kids are old enough now, but she still won't search for work. It's annoying, because she can't afford a lot for the kids, but expect us (especially grandpa) to buy things for them.

I think feminism is equel opportunities for men and women.

As such there should be free daycare, because if the daycare is too expensive one of the parents have to give up working.

And we all know that it is not a solution that one is rich and one stay at home. 50 pct end up divorced. The typical scenario is the husbond cheating and marrying the young secretary. Then the wife finds herself at the age of 40 without any work experience, without any work and children leaving the nest.

^In my case, I did the mother/housewife/work triad in all manner of ways.  Home schooled one child, worked full time for a good portion, stayed home when they were older and contracted work and for me it boils down to using your education and being responsible for your own way. That goes for both sexes.  If I hadn't, I'd have been in big trouble after my husband died.

Frankly, I was envious of women who could stay home.  Depending upon the situation and how many children there are, running a home can be a big job.

I myself, I plan on working and maintaining a private business on my own so I can give my kid priority. This is why I'm working like a fiend all the time and worked hard during my twenties (supposedly prime breeding years). There's nothing wrong with working through your twenties and certainly, it helped me avoid making several major mistakes in relationships. A home business with occasional trips and it'll help me work around my kid's needs and they'll know that Mommy wants them for who they are, not just as a ticket reason to stay at home. Any husband I have in the future will appreciate a wife who won't begrudge them baby time and if hubby wants to come home and watch the kiddos for several days, I'll be all for it.

It's the sense of entitlement; it's no longer wanting to be a wife and mother (as I hope to one day), but about making a big deal of it.

A lot of women who choose to do this act like they expect feminists to start persecuting them via burning them at the stake. They act as if they deserve a medal for their heroic choices and act like they expect to be persecuted or face persecution.

It's a choice, but not one that deserves an Olympic medal; they're not at all facing persecution that women who wanted to work faced.

Chicago is the closest and that's a full day/night drive but how does one get there with a dead battery?!!!!!

Luckily, I know the good people at San Diego Mercedes and she said she'd wave a new battery if I do it myself but not with a licensed mechanic; it will show up on the records.  So, when I get back to SD, it'll be fine but I've wasted all day messing with this because it's the end of the blasted world and the winter will never end and a winter storm alert is on the horizon so we'll see if I can get the heck out of here tomorrow or Monday - Monday might work.  So sick of the weather affecting my every day life.  It's ridiculous.

Emma Watson: This woman is getting on my nerves with her asinine pronouncements about the evils of the fashion industry and I am sick of her being held up as a paragon of womanhood. She got lucky with Harry Potter and could have just as easily lost that chance. She isn't smart; she isn't different than most students and the only reason she's held up as a holy paragon is because she is an actress who hasn't gotten a tattoo or as far as anyone knows, acted out inappropriately. I get it: she's drug and tarting around free, but that does not make her some kind of role model.

She shows plenty of skin and I don't think she's above the casting couch. She is an actress. She's not unique and there are plenty of non-celebrity young women who are drug and alcohol free who live clean lives and actually go through school without taking three breaks from university studies.

Her latest spouting off:

Emma Watson: Fashion perpetuates an image that’s ‘dangerously unhealthy’

Quote
Emma Watson has criticised the “dangerously unhealthy” image projected by the fashion industry and said the pressure to look perfect has taken its toll on her. The actor has also described her doomed attempts to merge into the background as a student at an American university, where she found herself being trailed everywhere by British photographers.

I have just had an invite that does not included a plus one. Some years ago I had a very embarrassing experience at the wedding of a friend who sent a single invite to me.

I vowed after that I would only go to weddings where I could take a plus one or where I knew a lot of people (family weddings).

I find that unless you are in a LTR then the invite will only be for yourself. Weddings are very expensive but people should realise how daunting these events can be if you don't know any of the other guests.

^Unfortunately, their minds may not necessarily be on each individual guests needs and comfort levels  :hug:



Here's my rant.  Back in 2005 I attended our local community college for one semester.  Later that year I moved to VA, and became a resident of that state.  I've since moved back to CA, and waited a year to establish residency here.  But, as it turns out, I wouldn't have needed to do that, except when the college imputed all of my information from 2005 into their new system, it listed me as having been an out-of-state student (even though at that time I had never lived outside of CA)

Okay, so I have to prove my residency.  Get them a copy of my driver's license, no problem.  Get them a copy of my state tax return?  Well guess who didn't print hers out because she figured she wouldn't need it?  Yep, that's right. So I have to mail my request, along with a copy of my driver's license, and a $20 money order, and hopefully it will all get here and I can establish residency with the college before summer classes start.  :angry: :nervous:

^It's the winter, y'know, deG?!  When I'm in CA or anywhere else on earth but this endless snow pack, I don't get the comfort eating binge.  I surf, swim, walk, go to the gym, eat kale, ahi, but here?  This endless grey does me in.  BUT, I did buy good food yesterday so those extra pounds are going to go.  This place will not consume me (or the other way around - HA!) 

Awww, that's the saving grace here.  The people are the kindest most helpful people anywhere.  They just talk your ears off but he gave me a daddy hug and said everything will be ok with the robin but it was symbolic that the winter will never come and kills everything.  Bright way to look at it!  Oh boy.

@Lowthen - I'm with ya sistah.  I'm stuck in this godawful place to establish residency and know exactly your frustration.  I went to the local village office to pay my taxes and they'd never taken my name off as homesteading my house so I never had to come to this godforsaken place to begin with so I was all ticked off and cried... HOWEVER, the IRS looks at it differently so it's, well, endless.  I hope things work out for you and you get your status in a timely fashion.  One thing that might help is to go to your advisor at school and explain the situation.  Sometimes, they'll accept your application as a resident if you have copies of your letters and paperwork to the gov.  Just a thought.

As for the wedding invitation, there is NO excuse for not addressing any invitation as So-and-So and Guest.  The only way a person should ever do that is to include in the invitation that this reception is for intimate friends only but that should be used across the board and good luck to any bride and groom who can get away with it.  In this day and age there are far too many unknowns in a person's personal relationship and it's social suicide not to be considerate.  I did restrict my wedding invitation, tho, to say, "Please indicate how many adults will be attending".  No kids screaming at my reception, thank you very much.  I know, I know but not happening.

My vent for today?  We are getting another storm warning. That means WINTER storm warning.  Up to 8 more inches of the ghastly stuff is supposedly coming our way and people have lost their minds, yours truly included.

I was able to talk to the counselor in charge of changing residency and she said I could use my paycheck stubs because I've been at my job continuously for one year, so I'll be faxing those to her on Monday.

So my rant for today is about bathing suits.  Specifically, the tops.  The trend right now is for them to be either the "bandeau" style, or the "Triangle" style, neither of which is flattering when you've got a larger chest size.  Oh, and don't even get me started on the "push up" bra styles either

^This one's easy.  Be true to your own body and never be a slave to fashion.  Fashion. Style.  Two different animals.  Make yourself comfortable and know your body strengths.  Bathing suits are probably #1 on that Rule.  Good luck, tho.  Bathings suits are such a nightmare.  I gave up years ago and wear a rash guard and bikini bottoms.  To heck with it.  It's comfortable, keeps my body safe from the sun and scratches (I do snuba and body surf) and looks nice/different.

Post by: lothwen on April 27, 2014, 05:27:11 pm
Thanks Yooper  :thankyou:



And I know that I should find things that flatter my shape, rather than just go with what's in style.  My issue was more that there weren't very many choices. But I think I'm going to see how the rash guard looks on me.  I already have a pair of black bikini bottoms.

Post by: YooperModerator on April 27, 2014, 05:49:39 pm
^You're more than welcome and it's quite true that the manufacturers push certain styles without consideration.  The rash guard is a standard and very popular look in beach communities so it's a win/win.  Worth a try!  And they dry like a dream.  Try Nordstrom for the best quality and really not outrageous pricing unless you're near a surf shop.  :flower:

That's super cute.

I'll look around and see if I can find anything.  Sometimes they have things at places like TJ Maxx, or Ross.  I'm sure I'll find something.  I don't really need anything until June anyways, so I have time.

Maybe they can be used as a home fragrance too? I have one of those with wood sticks from Zara home but it could a done at home thing.

What I use but feel a bit guilty is this http://www.amazon.co.uk/repeller-Ultrasonic-Electronic-Control-Deterrent/dp/B00A1LB0T8 but less professional. Although it doesn't work with every kind of insect.

In any case I love oils. I use almond oil everywhere, even though I have oily skin it works wonders.

blue dawn original dish detergent is fantastic too - dilute it with water and use it on plants keeps bugs away - mix in vinegar and Epsom salts and it actually kills weeds - my supermarket runs out of it every year at this time -

I used to post at Associated Content, a self publishing place where you could put anything.

Yahoo has ruined it.

Instead of posting pretty much whatever I want and being able to get paid per post, Yahoo now takes their snotty editors who reject pretty much every piece of salacious gossip I would like to post.

I lost my last account because I couldn't arrange the account to match my email or connect to my email and they refuse to do it themselves.

So now, no self publishing and no fun making mounds of money from my work.

F-U Yahoo!

Let me start off by saying that I am not a parent, so what I am saying is via observation only.



A lot of my friends who are parents will post things on Facebook about how kids today have no respect, and are spoiled, and bratty, and blah blah blah.  And I just want to say to them "And who do you think made them that way?" 

If you don't want your kids to be spoiled brats, then don't give them every thing they want.  If you want them to have respect for you, then give them boundaries and rules, and discipline them when they break those rules. 

I had a co-worker who had to go buy her daughter new shoes for school.  This woman worked as a waitress, where we got paid $2.13 plus tips.  She had her rent and utilities to pay, along with groceries and other expenses.  But she had to make sure she could spend $300 for a pair of designer shoes for her daughter.  Her daughter, by the way, who was 8 years old. The woman's reasoning for spending so much money?  Her daughter was "spoiled."  Well, of COURSE she was spoiled, if mom was dropping $300 on a new pair of shoes every year. 

Drives me crazy


Title: Re: Ranting,Rants get it all out!
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 24, 2014, 05:48:18 am
Amen!

No one should work to buy designer gear of an eight year old and I am tired of this designer culture where kids are expected to flaunt their latest. In the Eighties kids dressed in whatever they threw on and that was that, none of this insane idiocy. Kids are being spoiled because their parents are spoiling them.

This goes especially for hosiery.  Infuriates me.

It is so frustrating! I've only had one good match with eharmony but the relationship couldn't endure the pressures of a long distance relationship because he was in the Army and the differences in our schedules. Since then, I have been searching Eharmony and all my matches are Pastors, youth ministry leaders, Pastor Assistants, and bible/religious students.

Perhaps you placed a little too much emphasis on your spiritual beliefs when you put your preferences/ideal matches down. Write down things you would really like and appreciate in a potential boyfriend's character (without sticking too closely to what you originally said) and then communicate them to Eharmony, telling them that you aren't happy that you have been given all those matches with similar men that haven't suited you.

Dating these days is a landmine.  I feel your pain, Dark_Destiny.  I've tried 'em all:  eHarmony, Plenty of Fools Fish, took a Singles Cruise (what a story that is), been on tons of coffee (tea in my case) dates, Match.com, OurTime and I managed to find, among the dung heap, only ONE guy that was sort of kind of ok and he ended up asking me for money.  I even PAID for a rent-a-date because I had to have an escort which really ticked me off but the company picked up the tab.

What ended up happening in my case was I simply gave up.  Didn't care.  Blew off everybody.  And, then?  They show up.  Now, I have two (maybe 3 - he's a tough nut) guys that naturally don't live anywhere near me but they can't get enough and it's kinda nice.  I'm still not interested and it's like bees to honey.  So, my best advice is to keep busy, focus on yourself, keep in good shape, figure out what YOU like to do and the rest will come when you aren't looking for it.  It's an adage as old as the hills, but it's True.


Title: Re: Ranting,Rants get it all out!
Post by: Kuei Fei on November 18, 2014, 07:26:55 am
Thing is, even men reach a point where they want to find someone nice, but stupidly, men keep chasing after one skirt after another and no matter what, the fools then complain about getting burned all the time.

After I broke up with my first long term boyfriend, I decided to abstain and it's the best choice I ever made. I've been chaste for a decade now and I revel in it.

I'm not preaching, but let me tell you, all young women should just work on a career and spend time on themselves and spend time busying themselves with life while men run around with the tarts.

I get ticked when men complain about being burned, but to be blunt, you mess around with bad types, you go out to bad places, what do you expect? With all the stories about women offing their husbands for money, why don't men be smart and simply date and marry women on their more organized level?

The main problem I have with men, is that they want to sleep with everything in sight when they are young, but then whine about not finding a nice girl, but when you sleep with everything that walk, there won't be too many nice girls left!

As for shrieking about career women, well, men aren't proving themselves to be reliable. Stories of men ditching their wives of several years to marry a secretary, it's no wonder that women have learned the value of putting off marrying young so they can support themselves. Is it any wonder women don't trust men?

In regards to Jodi Arias, I do think that Travis never should have used Jodi, all the while making it clear that he wasn't going to marry her. If he had followed his Mormon rules and also called the police the minute Jodi started stalking him, go figure, he would be alive. He was a complete hypocrite.

Sick of hearing about how men suffer all the time in the West, but really, what exactly are women supposed to do? If men figured out what they wanted out of women, women would likely conform and everyone would be happy and likely very relaxed.

I'm sick, as an American woman, for being viewed as someone who will ruin a man's life if I marry him, despite the fact that a lot of American men are not at all making things easy. They need to stop creating baggage for themselves. I for one am NOT going to marry a man who has been married, divorced, and has to pay his ex-wife alimony and deal with the likely unresolved baggage that they'll bring with them. I don't need that kind of drama in my life.

Now, as for people encouraging women to find a man and marry young, they're a special target of my loathing for things in general. Young marriages don't work anymore and these days, most young men won't want to marry until they are in their thirties. Young women have no business forcing young men to be a new father figure, taking care of them and children. Establish yourself first and then marry, but don't do marriage, kids, then work on a genuine career. You'll ruin your health from all the stress of having and raising  family and building a career while paying off student loans.

Frequently, young women just want that magic moment of being the bride and then get bored being a wife and often are not good mothers. They are still kids themselves practically, not emotionally mature or responsible enough to have and raise children. So realistically, it doesn't make sense to marry that early in life.

Frankly, I believe that the only thing that stops a woman in her thirties from getting married to someone nice is if she carries a huge amount of baggage and doesn't live in any independent manner. The only thing stopping a man from finding someone nice is if he is for one reason or another unstable or unestablished. Dating isn't easy anymore because there are no established rules and no established, realistic things we are told to expect.

Now, talking about infidelity, how many stories do we have to hear about men offing their wives to marry their mistress, or perhaps the mistress killing the wife? More than I care to share and put bluntly, I am sick of men putting their wives at risk for murder all because of some worthless tart. Just watch episodes. I do believe that this is why women are becoming wary of the dating game as well and prefer to stay single for the rest of their lives. Modern women aren't able to win either.

I am a woman who is working a full time 40 hour job per week and I love it. I only have the weekends for leisure time and I'm always out doing something whether it's chores or meeting with friends. I have no trouble attracting men when I am out but I admit I'm very picky! I have come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with the personalities of the men I'm meeting on eharmony. So far, I count 2 out of the hundreds I've been matched with that I like and consider well rounded in personality.

Fair Dinkum, I love Jesus too and I would like to be matched with someone that shares my faith (or at least has no issues with me practicing my faith). But these men that I am being matched are fanatics who want me to change my religion, join their Christianity, quit my job and serve their community. It's crazy! And then, there are the men on the other side of the spectrum who only care about how much money I have. No Way  :snob:

I hope you find the one you are looking for Ariel. I've not had much success with Eharmony and I'm not going to renew my subscription. I miss the old days when people used to meet on online chat rooms. There use to be chat rooms on different topics and interests, and you would enter the chat room and talk to anyone in the chat room in general. Those were normal conversations and you would meet them if you really liked them.

I'm with you, Yooper. I would prefer that method too of meeting someone normally through everyday interactions and just living. I think it's wonderful advice especially with my experience of online dating. It's difficult for me to explain everything but I think you all understand that I'm a little psychic? So, my guides are telling me this the right path and that I will get a positive outcome. It's just very difficult because of all these complications. I'll just continue for now and see what the outcome is. I'm still hopeful something will come up since there is one month left on the subscription but if not, then I am definitely not renewing!

And I agree with you with everything you said about men, Kuei Fei.

from where I stand it's not about being picky - it's about being deserving. if i have invested my time in worked towards and earned a certain stability in life - i do not see anything wrong with expecting to be compatible with people who have been determined to achieve something in life and who know what they want and can provide for a family. like attracts like. if  i am not the type of woman who can ever accept to be someone's emotional garbage can or to be the breadwinner of the house (i.e. carry the pants in the house), then certainly i cannot find attractive a man who want to be the princess and be taken care of.

Dark_Destiny - so nice of you to be able to be in touch with your guides. Can you tell me a quick way I can send them a message? A few months ago I wished for a white french buldog with heritage and passport but could not afford it cause these dogs are expensive. And I remember saying to myself that I believe in Christmas miracles and I've wished for my perfect dog. How my guardian angels are going to make it happen - it's totally up to them. And last week there was a lady who decided to gift one such doggy. And she specifically wrote in her memo that the doggy is protective and lovable. Exactly what I wanted. I'll take it home this Sunday. But I was thinking - is there a way to contact them, even though I do not have psychic powers and thank them for doing all this for me. and for having my back as i feel supported.

Thank you!

I don't have kids from any in or out of wedlock relationships and as for being deserving, or picky, I like to think both picky and deserving. Thing is, I dislike dating services mainly becuase anyone can claim to be anything online. I prefer to just leave well enough to God and then leave well enough alone.

Maybe picky is the wrong word for me to use because I'm only picky about the situation in how I meet a person. I don't like clubbing or going to bars especially at night. But my friends will drag me along and I don't like meeting men from these scenes. It's just not my thing. I prefer to get to know a person really well before meeting them and I like to know that we share the same interest. But I have to agree with what Kuei Fei mentioned in her post. These boys I am being matched with on eharmony are losers! It's obvious why they haven't found a special someone yet. These men are so picky and demanding about what kind of woman they want to date and I get the impression that they want to change who I am. I'm more than willing to date someone without conditions but these guys are so arrogant.

Hi Ariel! Some people will say mediation will help you to get in touch with your spirit guides but I think it's more to do with trusting your gut instincts and being open to the possibilities. Everybody has spirit guides or Angels taking care of them even though they can't feel them or communicate with them. Spirit guides are always communicating in other ways such as using the environment around you to send you a message. It's different for everyone. For me, I communicate with my guides through my feelings and dreams. And for others, they don't realise they were communicating with their spirit guides until later in life. I think your spirit guides know that you will take great care of the puppy and are thankful that you are taking the responsibility. Communicating with your guides will grow stronger as you get older  :hug:

I'm not interested in meditating to get in touch with spirit guides.

You never know at all who you're really in contact with and frankly too many demons are running around just waiting to get into contact and mess your life up.

As for men, well, I'll meet the right one when I do. Certainly the biggest problem is how to find one who isn't burned badly or divorced or gay.

I resent how sex is pretty much expected upfront and how if you don't, you can't compete with those that do.

I do believe that contrary to what ultra-conservatives think, waiting until your thirties will not destroy your fertility and will not leave you a spinster. I for one personally believe that men who are in their twenties are still growing and will be prone to leaving their wives and kids behind to realize they want something different out of life.


Title: Re: Ranting,Rants get it all out!
Post by: Ariel on November 19, 2014, 01:46:09 pm
imo, if a man asks for sex  upfront - he's not serious, no matter how he justifies his wants. I've dated a few men in the past couple of months who are serious about finding the One and starting a family and they were all at no hurry at all when it comes to sex.

Dark_Destiny, what you are saying is so interesting. I sometimes have strange conversations with people I have never seen in my life while dreaming and they seem to keep telling me what I should do in different situations. The only person who has repeatedly visited my dreams and I know her is my grandmother - I loved her more than anything in the world.

good luck girls on finding your man  :flower:

Thank you Dark_Destiny.  There's no doubt that focusing on you and your life and the things that you enjoy attract more than repel and there was nothing wrong with reaching out.  A lot of people have found success through dating sites so I can't dismiss them all but in my case it worked best when I switched my way of thinking a bit but at the time I was in a low place and, well, it was worth a shot, I thought.  And it is if you learn something!

The very best to you.

I can't stand that my local news station has sent a certain reporter to two different major car shows. Because it's obvious she doesn't know anything about cars. The biggest things she can come up with are "There's a variety of cars" and "Did you ever go to one of these shows and wonder what magic makes all these cars so shiny? I'll tell you the secret." Especially annoys me since I enjoy car shows + taking car pics is one of my hobbies. Tell me something useful about the cars and the show, not generic platitudes to bluff your way through the piece  :thumbsdown:

Post by: Kuei Fei on February 06, 2015, 09:38:27 am
I am so sick of American men blaming women for the problems in this country.

The main reason women get careers is because:

1. Young men don't want to get married and since not every woman has a big trust fund, they have to work to support themselves or end up living on welfare. Apparently men don't want a woman on welfare (as far as I know), so frankly women have to work to live comfortable and avoid poverty.

2. Men often leave their wives and frankly I don't think there's a problem with a woman wanting money of her own in case of her husband walking out and of course, dying before she does.

3. Women are not preventing men from getting jobs. Yes, there are problems, but the deck isn't stacked against just men in this world or national economy.

Men blame American women if they go to school, if they don't go to school, or if they lead independent lives, or are eager to be homemakers. Second, men are just as much social climbers as they claim women are.

Look at how George Clooney vowed to stay single and then eagerly married Amal A., but it was her career (grossly inflated) that is so hyped. As if women who work as waitresses and other good stuff is somehow beneath him, no matter how honest the work.

When men stop rutting around in their twenties they'll find there are decent people out there. Yet, they choose to mess around with every single women they can get their hands on and end up broken men in their thirties, bitterly cynical and whining about how women are all lowlife skanks.

Then, while married, they sometimes cheat on their wives, getting their wives murdered in the process by the lunatic mistress or end up stalked, or perhaps decide to kill their own wives themselves and run off with the mistress (until the law catches up with them of course) and then the mess is revealed.

It's not the fault of women that men are acting like sex freaks while young, making it difficult for nice girls to even form a relationship and go figure, spent their fertile years either messing around and being labeled skanks, or spend their fertile years quietly working on a career, since men made it clear they aren't interested in marriage/commitment/kids. There is no such thing as a war on men mainly since a lot of women are avoiding dates and other drama.

Look at how Prince Charles messed around in his twenties and had to marry an adolescent since he had messed around with the women his age.

Apart from that, my dad said it was more important for women to be educated. Not AS important. MORE important.

Why? When the *crap* hits the fan, it is usually women who have to clear up the mess. Whether by nature or nurture, women tend to.

So if someone is ill, women tend to become the carers. When they get divorced, or split from their partners, they are "left" to bring up the child/ren and in raising them, they sacrifice their careers to care for them. And suffer financially in the process.

So it is more important for women to be educated and have a good job as a kind of insurance against life's events. And men can, and I'm not meaning all men, but some men would rather women were dependent upon them do not want women to have that independence that an education and career can bring.

But since as has been mentioned, they don't/won't commit, then what are women to do? Wait? No, not when bills have to be paid.

But not all men are like this, as I know only too well. My brothers and best friend are "modern" in their attitudes.

To me, a HUGE red flag is when a man says he wants you to drop your career aspirations. It often means that he wants you to mommy him while he runs his own aspirational way of life. Then once he no longer needs mommying, he will leave mommy, meaning, wifey. A huge amount of statistics show that a housewife is likelier to end up abandoned rather than a wife with a career.


Title: Re: Ranting,Rants get it all out!
Post by: Dark_Destiny on February 07, 2015, 08:41:36 am
I think it's hard for women to build their career when men are so bias in the workplace. For example, where I work, employees are ranked from level 1 to 4 where the lowest employees are 1. There are alot of women at level 1 but almost none I see at level 2. And there is a woman at my work who is more than qualified to do the managers duties as she knows so much about the job, but she is always overlooked.

And the reason why she will never become manager (level 2) is because the men at the top think she will have to sacrifice her career for a family later on, down the track. It's so hard to climb the ladder because it's the boys club up there. It's sad in this modern day and age, that corporations cannot provide equal opportunity for women.

Generally, I find men are very supportive of women working and having a career. And men are willing to support their partners if they have a children or if they are out of work, for a short amount of time. Men know the benefits of a woman working is good for the family because a couple can achieve more together.

The Journalist should have done her research in my opinion. It's most likely they assigned her to the job at a moment's notice and she didn't get time to put her story together.

GF received a notice from the elementary school that a child in the school may have measles.
The school is required to notify parents & guardians when a communicable diseases has been
reported for any employee or student. The notice did not divulge the gender or grade of the
child but the mommy network got to work and figured out who it was. Family has 3 kids in the
school. Family is anti-vax. Many parents have decided to shun the family. GF says that 1 of the
kids showed up to ice skating lessons after the notice. Kid did not get a chance to take their coat
off in the locker room. The instructor and the students left the rink (including GF and her kid) and
there was no lesson. The manager was left to deal with the problem. GF says there is no excuse
to be unvaccinated for the very contagious diseases like mumps, measles and polio. If you are
anti-vax, home-school your kids. No childcare facility will accept an employee or a child without
up-to-date vaccinations. Exceptions are babies who are too young for vax. When old enough, must
be vaccinated or can't come to childcare anymore. GF does not think it is wrong to shun the family
because, even if you are vaccinated, you can be a carrier and not get ill yourself. Her kids are
up-to-date with their vax and feels that she doesn't want her family to be the carriers because
they associated with those that might be infected. Thoughts?

Title: Re: Ranting,Rants get it all out!
Post by: Little light on February 10, 2015, 10:32:19 pm
Even though I have had all my vaccinations, I still contracted sub-clinical measles, from my brother who had it - he had had all his vaccinations too! -  and was very ill for a week.

So it is a smart thing to avoid those who have communicable illnesses, as you can still contract the disease, albeit not as sever as those not vaccinated.

Measles is really, really contagious too. I heard a statistic from a Dr on the news the other day that if you're sitting next to someone with measles and you have no immunity (through vaccination), your chances of getting it are over 90%.

My kids are vaccinated, but my friends son just spent a month in the hospital and was in a coma for a week, he came down ill the day he got vaccinated, so I can understand where parents can be scared. He was healthy at his appointment and then had a horrible reaction.

I am constantly second guessing myself because there are risks and I am reading books on both sides of things and always talking to doctors. I'm lucky enough that my kids have never had any issues other then fevers and crying, but having several friends whose children have had horrible reactions and having had a febrile seizure myself after having the pertussis shot as a child, I can understand why some parents are scared to vaccinate....

I hope you don't mind me typing this here, but I need a place to release my frustrations. I'm feeling very disappointed right now and I don't know what to do. I really don't like it when a guy promises you something and he doesn't deliver. For example: this morning he promises me that he will call me when he gets home from work. I've been waiting almost an hour now and he hasn't called. And I've noticed as well that recently, it's mostly been me contacting him. I seem to be the first one to call, text or say hi.

It's really annoying and frustrating because he doesn't seem to be displaying any interest in me. Even in our conversations, he doesn't ask about my welfare or doesn't enquire about me in general. It seems to be me asking all the questions and me following up on issues and threads of conversations. And I'm feeling disappointed because I thought I found myself a nice guy. And he was the first one to change his facebook profile status to be in a relationship with me.

I could be wrong and his behaviour could be explained by pressure at work or family commitments, but there is a voice at the back of my head that is telling me that he is no longer interested in me and that I need to break it off.

Dark_Destiny - take it as a challenge to test your feminine power. don't call him. don't text him. if he texts you - text him back in 3-4 hours and with less words than him. do not chase him or he'll stop having interest in you. instead - try to find everything about him very interesting, listen to him. men love to have someone listen to them and to tell them how strong, clever, amazing they are. then - test your reactions to him - treat even the smallest thing he does for you as if you are 10, it's Christmas morning, you unwrap the presents and you see exactly what you've been dreaming of. also - NEVER talk about feelings. this will end any relationship faster than you can imagine - unless you're in a relationship with a therapist. men imo will understand you better if you show them that you need their help and you show them that you are grateful for it. and also - look at the 5 love languages site and find out how he understands that he is loved.

I don't know how to deal with this anymore. Like now that I'm getting so much better than I was, after 8 years battling a depression it looks like my mother is trying anything in her power to make my life a living hell.
She tries to control everything I do, the minute I don't do what she tells me to, she goes in "you shall obey my because I am your mother" and if I try to confront her and answer to what she's saying she either implies that I'm lying, she says I'm not "right in the head because I told her this/I said I was going to do that" (when I know I haven't quite exactly told her those things, for instance she'll insist that I told her that we'd go to a certain place tomorrow and I only said that "we should go there sometime") or she'll get in a rage, say horrible things (I sometimes reply in kind, I've been slapped for that on several occasions, once she beat me with a broomstick) and if I answer she'll order me to shut up and don't dare to answer or she'll "destroy me". I've been reading about parents with narcissistic personality disorder and I feel like she could fit in the classification, I don't know what to do but I'm tired of living like this, I'm 26 years old and anytime I'm near her it's like she sucks joy out of my life, I feel emotionally exhausted...I love her but I can't stand being in her presence for more than a couple of days. I don't know what to do I'm so tired of all of this, I'm tired of crying my heart out. I'm so sorry, I can't post about this anywhere and I don't dare to talk to anyone I know about this. It shames me.

You live in a toxic situation and your mother is toxic. I don't know if she is mentally ill but it doesn't matter. It's not your fault and it's no wonder you felt depressed all those years.  :hug: :hug:

I think you should go to your normal doctor in the social security services and tell what's going on with your family. I don't know if you were also going to a psychiatrist if you were check with him again if possible and tell him what's on. You need to get out of your house as soon as possible and they will probably know lots of services that can help make that happen.

Seriously get out as soon as you can  :hug: :hug:

And the attacks continue.  Hm, doesn't seem to be working, boys.  Maybe you should try a different tactic.  Here're a few suggestions: How about kindness, honesty and respect?  Try talking to me to my face and asking for what you want instead of just taking it.  You'd be surprised.

I'll go you one better, if you acknowledge me privately, and tell my mother the truth, I will publicly support you should you ever decide to tell the world.  That's a hell of an offer.  I'd think about that very carefully if I were you.  Consider the optics.

And, no, this is not a threat in any way, shape or form.  It's an attempt to find a solution to this mess you made.  Isn't that kind of me?

^ I like honest support. It's great. A genuine bond can form between people who have suffered through the same or similar horrors.

What I meant was a particular person who convinced herself that she is like me and that she, too, suffered kidnap and torture. She is claiming the VERY SAME and I do mean THE EXACT things that happened to me also happened to her. THE VERY SAME THINGS.
The same torture, very specific. Psycho chick.I would feel sorry for her but the pain was too great for me to be that kind to her. It's bizarre as fyck. And creepy. I want to tell her to give it a rest already but I stay far clear of fhat one. No telling what she is capable of. She even sent me messages to read. Sick. And it's so not cool to hurl this shyt at a true victim. It's not.

I'm very sorry you suffered so much sadness in your life YooperMod. Sending you virtual hugs and positive thoughts. :hug: :flower: :hug:

^ :hug: back to you!  How kind.  I have much for ehich to be grateful and if you live long enough things happen or something.  Everybody has a cross to bear.

But!  You have this psycho person figured out.  Now I get it.  She sounds looney.
