Now that passports will be required for all events, I’ll be saving all my cash and chilling at the beach or riding bikes or maybe hiking mountains. I’m happy I saw the places I wanted to before this new world.
I think I might turn down a job because my unemployment is more than minimum wage after taxes and travel expenses. And stfu if you're going to criticize me for being unlawfully terminated by my former employer and don't have a reference I can trust for the past 5 years of employment. This is a systemic problem. The system has failed the working class.
I met a beautiful girl today at the park. She was easy to talk to and seemed really cool. Ive been single for so long it felt really amazing to talk to someone and share some laughs. As she was giving me her number she went on some anti-vaxx rant... Im so fucking done. Ive had such bad experiences with women in this city and the one time in years that I actually make an effort she turn out to be a bloody anti-vaxxer. I know I know, there are many many good people out there. I have no doubts at all that there are tons of great people here. But I dont ever seem to meet them. I dont ever admit this but im lonely. But ive been through way too much bullshit to put myself out there again.
Good luck out there folks. I may have given up but im rooting for the rest of ya.
Yesterday I visited an old girlfriend from before. She is ill, in the hospital, and all alone. When I held her in my arms, it was like I was 25 years old again
I used to treat employers with respect and go out of my way to be thoughtful towards them and not let them down. But ever since Covid hit and I got laid off I have been through so many jobs and now I treat them with the respect and commitment they deserve for whatever pittance they feel like throwing my way. Pay me little and if a better job comes along I don't care how much money you claim to have spent training me but I am out that door quicker than a rat deserts a sinking ship and no you don't deserve to have notice. I'm not getting fooled again. Good employees are thin on the ground right now and it is time to get paid what we deserve!
I don’t hang out at pubs and bars. The music is too loud, the food is mediocre and shifty, most of the clientele are loud mouth pea-brained know it all jocks and creepy old drunks. Not my scene. I love my quiet life just the way it is and wouldn’t change anything about it.
that two people upon first sight could look into each others eyes and easily fall deep in love forever within seconds without saying 1 single word
I know it sounds contradictory but I hate anti vaxxers when they confront me in shops or even in the street for wearing a mask but I also find people who flinch when you stand near them even though you are wearing a mask also annoying and also people who jump on me to wear a mask even when I am taking it out of my pocket to put a mask on. Please don't make this pandemic even more unpleasant than it already is.
Often times when visiting my mother in her care home I would find her in her small room staring blankly at the wall. She would never tell me what she was thinking but now that I’m in a similar situation I know she was thinking about all she once had but had now lost.
Finally, I get it.
Today. With my wife. It doesn't happen all that often.
