In response to a confession. For the answer to what I think to this question, please read the response below. I got to "Rosa Parks" and started laughing so hard that for the first time in my life, I think it's time to start doing kegel exercises.

In response to a confession. Businesses aren't directly asking people if they're vaxxed. People aren't really lying since they're not being asked. Just because people go in a building without a mask doesn't mean they are saying they're vaxxed, they're just not following the rules. Rosa parks didn't follow the rules either. I go to doctor appts without a mask, they know I'm not vaxxed and all tell me I don't need to wear one anyway. I'm at the doctors about twice a week. The facts about the vax are that you can still get Covid with the vax and you can still spread covid with the vax. The only person the vax helps is the person who receives it. It's purpose is to protect the receiver from death or hard effects from Covid. Funny since those are also side effects of getting the vax. The survival rate of Covid is about the same as the survival rate of the vaccine.

What do you all think about someone who refuses to get vaccinated, but lies and says they are just so they can go maskless in restaurants, stores and bars?

In response to a confession. OMG I feel this. H brings home $5300-6000+/mo, which includes $1000 for meal allowance. The bills he's responsible for (mortgage and car payment) come to $2200, and then he has some credit card debt he pays each month. I make considerably less, but pay the utilities, car insurance, my phone (his is company-issued so no bill), my credit cards, groceries, toiletries, pet food, Netflix, Hulu and Peacock. Somehow I'm able to put money in savings, mostly for my child's college tuition. He currently has less than $600 in checking, and $21 in his savings. Earlier this month his schedule got messed up and he didn't work for almost two weeks. And he's stressed and angry that his check is going to be low and might not be able to pay the mortgage. I have no sympathy and am tired of bailing him out.

I was waiting for tea at a bougie coffee shop and saw this book was a decorative piece next to an old school typewriter. It was 1934 2nd Edition of Webster’s Dictionary. I totally geeked out and had to read through it. The last time I held a physical dictionary was decades ago. Anyone else a closeted bookworm?

Husband- *Spends all of the money* Also my husband- *completely surprised and pissed off when we have no money* Like, wtf did you expect to happen? The money isn't there just because you've mentally told yourself it is. You need help. Thank goodness I've been saving every penny I can sneak past you.

It bugs the shit out of me when people upload videos of them filming their animals doing stuff that's "funny," when basically they're actually mistreating them. Like when people put rabbits on their back and the rabbit "freezes" it's not cute, the damn thing thinks you're about to rip his insides out. I watched a video of a girl "dancing" with a raccoon. The raccoon was swaying back and forth in a repeated fashion. It's not fucking cute, it's a thing caged animals do when they are stressed and bored (like tigers pacing at the zoo or horses biting their stable door.) There's even fake "rescue videos" where they put the animal in the situation then rescue it. It's so fucking gross that people use the general public's love of animals but also the fact that most people are ignorant about animal behaviour and think something is "cute" when the animal's stressed. And if it's a dog or anything else big enough to hurt you, good luck when it's had enough teasing.

In response to a confession. Wow, that is like saying people who are depressed should just snap out of it. Hoarding is often an unusual attachment to everyday objects, so 'just get rid of that thing' is like saying 'just say goodbye forever to your dog'. It is heartbreaking for them to get rid of something that hasn't fulfilled it's purpose. If you want to understand the disease better, I recommend the book 'Stuff'. It isn't terribly technical, but gives some insight to what professionals where discovering not too many years ago. There is very little research around hoarding, compared to other mental disorders like OCD or addiction, but it is also far more complex.

I sold my house, I obviously got a nice check from it. But the state where we moved to, homes are 2.5x as much so I have to hold on to it until we can find one to buy here. I'm having surgery soon, I'm not wanting to start looking until after I'm recovered. My DD13s stepmom is trying to volunteer my money for things for my DD. Things that are not necessities. I tell her I can't afford it. Every time, she says "But you have all this money from selling your house, we're struggling". Mind you, she & my ex make more than 2x what DH & I make, plus their bills are less since her dad buys them new cars & pays their phone bill on their family plan. They are impulse buyers, their money is gone the moment it hits their account then cry broke. DH & I are savers. Their poor planning is not my problem, they should save to buy the items, especially since I buy all of DDs necessities for both homes.

In response to a confession. It's hard to see mental illnesses like hoarding or any sort of addictive behavior as something that isn't their fault. The whole problem is apparently caused by decisions that they made, after all. It's almost impossible to see it any other way when you feel personally victimized. I know from experience. I have a really hard time having any patience at all with drug addicts/alcoholics/hoarders because I've personally experienced the frustration of these people refusing to change, even when it's hurting the people they love. Even when it was hurting ME, from childhood through to current. I've washed my hands of several family members. I'm not saying they don't need help or that it's not an illness. It is. I just can't help them and it's not worth my mental well-being to try. I'm over it. Find help elsewhere.
