I bought a medical product from a website. It expired in 2 months but it’s supposed to be around a year (think like an epi pen, you carry it with you long term for emergencies). I contacted the company to complain and ask for a replacement but they ignored me. So, I waited 2 months, ordered a new one, and then told them it was expired and would be doing a chargeback knowing they would ignore me. Fair’s fair.

I tried doing nail art because of the whole "Stuck inside" sort of thing. I found this really cute Mickey Mouse design and screwed it up. Now my nails look like they have little dicks on them.

I've been distancing myself from my best friend over the past year. She's become a hardcore republican Trump supporter and has some major ego issues. She and I just don't jive well anymore and I'm at the point in my life where I want authenticity. She recently found out that a girl from my job came over to hang out and ended up losing her shit at me. She hangs out with different friends all the time, and I've never cared, but apparently, when I do it I'm Satan. Safe to say this friendship is over.

I wasn't trying to say ageism is as dangerous as racism, I was trying to point out that adding "the people *I know*" to "the people in this demographic do X" is still a problem because is propagates a stereotype. But yeah, I see I lit a match when I didn't mean to. Sorry everyone!

Also, it's such a cheap dirty trick to pull the race card when we're talking about age. People don't get beaten up by cops because of their age. People don't get refused service because of their age (unless it's someone trying to buy something they're too young to buy.) You aren't at more risk from everything from poor treatment in hospital to poor housing to environmental racism because of age. People might be rude to you about your age, although I'd argue that's kind of a ridiculous statement to make when the people in positions of power are older and many of those people are currently trying to squash the movements of younger people to change things with regard to equality, the environment, etc etc. You are not systematically discriminated against because of your age. Completely invalid comparison.

In response to a confession. My quote "but I also think the idea that age confers wisdom when every boomer I know posting racist memes on Facebook kind of bucks that trend." That's an observation. Not a value judgment. I didn't even call these people racist, just said that they were posting racist memes, which they are. Comparing that to calling Mexicans lazy, man, I hope you didn't pull any muscles making that reach, because those two things are NOTHING like each other. So no, it's not problematic. If every Mexican I knew didn't get up until after noon and I said so, again, that's an observation. Saying "every Mexican I know is lazy" is a judgment. Do you really need that difference spelled out for you?

I lost about 35 lbs a couple of years ago. It is slowing creeping back on. I still exercise as usual but my eating is super out of control. I just started going nuts about 2 weeks ago, eating everything I can get my hands on. I'm not sure why? It's not due to the coronavirus, I'm not depriving myself of snacks or sweets and I'm definitely eating enough calories and drinking tons of water. I just eat until I'm so full and miserable all night. Nothing stressful going on either. I really have no logical reason, but I do know I need to reel it in before I gain it all back again.

In response to a confession. You were saying we shouldn't judge people based on age, and yet you feel every person of a certain age group had a certain behavior. I get it is just people you know, but that is still dangerous thinking IMO. If I said "every Mexican I know is lazy", that is pretty raciest. Not as raciest as "every Mexican is lazy"? OK, but you can see why that first thing is still problematic, right? I do agree with your point that there seems to be a generation war going on that doesn't benefit anyone, and that wisdom isn't based on age.

My mom is so creepy sometimes. I started limiting contact with her bc I finally realized how insane she is, but anyway. She keeps commenting on other people's posts about their kids, saying that I helped her get over her PPA by keeping her away from MY kids. (Which I don't, i just limit). She keeps trying to weasel her way into "helping" homeschool my kids this year. And just now I got a text "I really enioy watching such and such TV show bc the actress looks just like you and it makes up for not ever getting to see you." At some point, you gotta let your kids live their life. You can't be in it every single second. Go find a hobby, ffs. It will hurt like a bitch, but it's part of the process of parenting.
