It’s starting to get to me. My FIL apparently thinks my son is a wussy and plays extra rough with him whenever they roughhouse. He’s already rough in general. All the grandkids (the oldest is 10) end up getting hurt half the time they play. But he is so rough with ds that he ends up crying every single time. AND half the time fil is the one who starts shit with ds. I am always reminding ds that if he starts it expect to get hurt, but fil will often poke and prod until ds starts playing. At what point does a grown assed man realize he’s not “toughening up” my kids, he’s being a fucking bully. Btw my son is not a wuss, I just didn’t raise him to act like he’s dead inside like previous generations have raised men to be.

How do you swap parties? I live in a small town, and the poll people have always just handed me the republican ballot without asking. Which was fine, but now... i don't want to vote for Trump or Biden. But I don't want to vote for Trump. He's certifiable. I wish they would just hand you one ballot with everyone from all the parties on it and leave you to it. Or are presidential elections different from the other ones? I can't remember, tbh.

I ordered some Clorox wipes today for delivery. The wipes being in stock was already great enough, but when they arrived, I had gotten an extra canister of them and wasn’t billed. It’s the little things in life!

I just found out you can sprinkle crushed up bay leaves in your pantry/kitchen to repel mice. I am totally doing this so mine don't come back anytime soon. I got rid of them all with traps, but I'm not taking any chances. I thought there were a couple other people on here who had mice problems, so I thought I'd share.

DH and I don't eat out at restaurants much. I guess I always figured we were on the low end of restaurant-going, but I talk to a lot of people at work and I swear we are mutants or many people eat some sort of takeout, restaurant or gas station food at least 3 times a week. DH and I eat out at a restaurant (including fast food) maybe once every other month. Are we really that weird? Or do other people out there not eat out very often either?

A year ago, I was working a menial p/t job making about $14K a year. I did that for 7 years after being a SAHM for 7 years. Got a f/t job that paid way more than I ever thought I'd make, but was laid off when COVID hit. I got a new job last month, but had to take a pay cut from the job I was laid off from. Well, after only a month, I was offered a promotion. $20K more than the high-paying job I was laid off from. My total compensation will be close to $100K. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could do that after being out of the workforce for so long. And I'm not like an engineer or something. I do admin work. Dh has never really come out and say it, but he's made snarky comments along the way. First about how I don't contribute anything financially, then insinuated that I was laid off because the job was over my head, not because of COVID. This promotion shut him up and he's suddenly supportive. F him. This promotion means I can afford to leave him now.

In response to a confession. This is actually an abusive tactic- they talk you up to anybody and everybody and then treat you like shit when nobody's looking. This way nobody believes you if you do tell them how shitty you're treated, and you wind up looking like the bad guy. Classic abusive tactic.

I'm an introvert. I totally accept that there are people in this world who just love to go out and constantly be around people (even though every extrovert I've ever known does not respect my introversion). I don't understand them, but I've always respected them. Until now. Fuck these assholes who just have to go out, even though they run the risk of spreading a killer virus. Fuck those assholes with a rusty pipe. These super extroverts are literally going to be the death of us.

I'm so sick of people fighting the mandatory mask rules we have in our state. I work for a company run by Trumpeteers and they told us they won't enforce the rules. I HAVE to be onsite for work and this makes me livid. I'm going to ask my boss if I can do anything about it but I think I'll just try to hole up in my office alone as much as I can.

Out mowing the yard and saw a snake and of course freaked the fuck out because SNAKE. Called my dh, thought it was a mocassin, not brave enough to run it over. Snakes are one of my only phobias. That and small spaces, really. So I drove past it a few times and it never moved. Just laid there with its mouth open. After my 6th or 7th healthily distanced driveby, it hits me that the stupid thing is dead. I still can't convince myself to run it over, or throw something at it, but Im pretty sure it's dead. Now I feel dumb. But I just cannot with snakes. Waiting on my dh to come home to deal with it.
