Man, A2... I hope you can hold your breath until you get to "moving out" age, cause uh... your parents are retards - no offense. Undecided I'm sure they mean well, but they just seem ignorant.

Ignorance is not a bad thing as long as one accepts the responsibility to escape it. Consider But I guess one wouldn't know that if one were ignorant. Always do your smarty pants justice by escaping ignorance. Wink

Oh well, I guess they are paying the bills... appreciate that while you have it... and try to stock pile whatever money you can - you'll need it. Although I would normally tell you to pay no attention to Lord Erxy with his evil green influence... I have to admit to my curiosity or I wouldn't be a true Atheist.... sooooo....
Is she hot? Dodgy

RE: Ranting corner
I'm an asshole, I get it. No one is aware of this more so than me. But I like to think I'm a considerate asshole. Someone who thinks of other people as well as themselves. Why doesn't anyone else seem to have the ability to consider other people? This morning me and the wife and the old stroller bound kid are at the local timmies enjoying a cup a joe. When the kid is in the stroller we try to find a nice out of the way place to squat while we eat or drink. You know so people don't have to go around us and so people can use any other seat they wish. So it's early, not busy at all, then a group of older men come in and firstly one of them gets all up in my kids face, not taking the hint that not only does she not think he's adorable but that I'm getting angry and trying not to grab him by the collar and slap him. Secondly they all group around our little spot and pull up chairs to a 2 person table, completely blocking us in. Completely. All the other tables are fucking empty. All of them. Then the one old guy gets all creepy and in my kids face again. Like seriously people. Not your kid. Look at the daddy. Look at me, so you know how close you are to swallowing teeth.

Or how about walk blockers? I walk everywhere. I am a considerate walker. By that I mean, if I am going too slow for the people behind me I move to the side and let them pass. ( I am typically a fast walker but sometimes it's too nice out. ) People never seem to reciprocate this. Instead it's more common for you to get one or more people that walk slowly and also some hoe manage to block every means possible of passing them. They will even look right at you, and just carry on. I might live in an exceptionally rude town or something but I've had almost no success with the magic words Excuse me. Or Pardon me. It's like people have never heard those words before and know not of their meanings.

On the subject of words of kindness, whatever happened to please or thank you? No one seems to use them anymore, instead replacing them with the out of place scowl or grumpy grunt of thanks. Every day someone comments on how great my kids manners are and I think it's because of how uncommon they are in other kids. Or adults for that matter.

Also if you are driving and are approaching a crosswalk without a light, you don't look at me, slow down and then when I start to cross speed up and almost hit me. If you've done this to me before you know I will cuss you out and memorize your car for later assaults to occur. If you do this and you happen to get stuck nearby I will come up to your car and tell you to get out. Friendly reminder. And when you get out (if you do) I will punch you square in the face, and it will fucking hurt.

How many kids do you need to almost run over in a day to make it worth getting home an extra four seconds earlier?

Wow, I have been left home alone since the age of about 11. Video games and books make great babysitters.

And then it was again, and now it's not again, and in a minute it will be again.

Why is the ranting corner not pinned anymore, one would like to know.

The tapatalk app doesn't work right with moderators and admin so anytime erx posts in a stickied thread it unsticks it. And i'm left to clean up the mess Tongue

Behold the power of the force!
