My wife’s privileged upbringing

Me and my wife are educated professionals that can support ourselves. She was brought up in an upper middle class home by highly educated and wealthy parents while I grew up poor(homeless father, neighbourhood stabbings and no dentist poor). Normally it’s manageable but recently the disparity is becoming more apparent(and vexing). We want to install 2000ish square feet of hard wood flooring and she is furious that installers won’t guarantee a finish date or that they won’t give a discount if the job takes longer than expected. When I tell her we will most likely have to pay extra or hand the workers a few hundreds to make sure the job is finished on time, she can’t accept it. She can’t accept that in a wealthy city reliable trades people are more in demand than masters educated professionals. I am getting tired of trying to get this Reno done. All I keep thinking is letting her continue to piss off installers and carpenters, so when we miss our deadlines she will hopefully wake up and realize it’s not how educated you are but rather what you can DO.

Hard Choices

Humans have finite awareness. Did you know that automobiles kill more people in BC every year than hate speech, even if we include "hate" motivated violent crime? Which do we hear about as a "serious social ill" more often, hate or automobiles? If we banned hate, we'd still hundreds of preventable deaths in BC from automobiles, if we banned automobiles, we'd have far fewer deaths. But free speech is just some luxury good, automobiles, those are necessary, right? Or do we have restrictions on speech because if people really started speaking and acting freely, they'd shut down the trans canada because it causes cancer?

Funny story

I'M DONE

ACTIONS, MY STUPID FRIEND SPEAK WAY LOUDER THAN YOUR SHITTY WORDS. I'M DONE WITH BOTH. YOU READING THIS. DONE WITH YOUR BULLSHIT. DONE!!!! You are out of your mind.

Is it just me?

Or have the SJWs finally mellowed out a bit after the public started calling them out for being crazy nerds who haven’t contributed anything to society?

Somewhat

In just the last few years, I've noticed that the words "at all" have suspiciously arrived in the retail world. They serve as a form of sheer redundancy or outright confusion. I hear them at the grocery check out when all I've bought is four litres of milk: "Will you need a bag at all?" What is the option being offered? One bag or no bags. There is no "at all". There's no option for less than one full bag, like four tenths of a bag. Why end the question with this weak modification? "Will you need the receipt at all?" I'm sorry, is this not a yes or no question? Are you offering me half the receipt? Why not just ask: "Do you need the receipt?" The "at all" seems to suggest there is a degree of desirability in obtaining the receipt of purchase. There isn't. I either need it or I don't. "Would you like the two-year warranty with that at all?" I don't know, will you charge me less if I'm undecided? When this superfluous phrase is tacked on to any question, my new stock answer is: "Somewhat." Sort of throws them a curve ball.

Random Goal

A flying beetle just hit me in the side of the head and bounced off right into a cup on my desk. 2 points?

Bewitched

I'd sabotage my marriage, job, life, apartment, etc just for a single kiss from a certain person. What the f*ck is wrong with me.

Goodnight cookies

I’m gonna order some pot cookies to help me get good night’s sleep. Wonder if they’ll go good with a glass of milk?

University of Beautiful Condos

I can not recognize the place I lived less than a decade ago. The buildings, the cafes and restaurants, the atmosphere, the people - all replaced or sanitized, packaged, refined. Thank god for wreck beach and the regulars who have preserved the culture.
