Hipsters

They actually look down on the poor & homeless, so they aren’t really forward thinking nor compassionate, they only care about their $6 no fat avacado lattes & looking hip to other hipsters

Bullies forget

When bullies are young, they are mean and nasty and they just put everything down and complain constantly. They make the lives of others miserable so they can feel better about themselves at the expense of others. Bullies are selfish by nature. They don't go through what their victims went through, so they think their cruelty doesn't last because they hurt and then brush it off. But the victims feel it, and it is so jarring that it stays in their minds for the rest of their lives. They never forget because the pain was terribleat a time when they were supposed to have innocence. The bullies ruin it to patch up their fragile self-esteem. They rob from others peace and happiness. When a bully gets even a portion of what they easily imposed on others as an adult, they can’t take it at all. Well, too bad, childhood bullies. Don't dish it out if you can't take it. And yes, this is life balancing out the harm you caused others and blew off . You earned a karma nobody should wish on anybody. I feel sorry for you, both for watching you cluelessly suffer the boomerang of what you put out and for failing to empathize.

Both ways

After spending 20 years in the corporate world I've realized that organizations with mostly women can be just as toxic as organizations with mostly men.

I do not understand debt obsession

I moved to Canada from the US 8 years ago. I do not understand your obsession with debt. Debt is treated here like it's some sort of moral failing and a sin.....if you are in debt you are a bad person and must be shunned. Where I am from, debt is just a fact of life. We all have it and it's not a source of judgement or shame. Not a cause of rejection. Why is debt such a big and shameful thing here? I am legit confused.

I'm addicted to carrots.

New word

I was at the McDonald's near the Hyatt downtown, waiting with the crowd for my drink order. It was a Thursday and I noticed there were a lot of people with name badges, so I figured there was a convention going on at the hotel. Beside me, I noticed an attractive man, also waiting for his order. He didn't have a name badge, but he was wearing a golf shirt and dress pants and had a laptop bag over one shoulder, so I assumed he was one of the convention-goers. I noticed him and he noticed me, but that was about it. The next day, I happened to require another McDonald's coffee, so I was at the same McDonald's at about the same time I had been there the day before. As I was standing, waiting for my coffee, I was checking a couple of things on my phone. And then I looked up and over to the cashier for some reason and there was Convention Guy again, staring at me. He was wearing a different colored golf shirt this time so I still contend he was at a convention or meeting of some sort. Anyway, we made eye contact for a meaningful second before he got called to the cashier. Just when he got called, my coffee came up and I was off to work. My new word? I totally Vancouvered that encounter. Sigh.

I drive

I'm enjoying driving again after years of not being able to afford it. Here's to car sharing! I especially like the Toyota Prius C, the engine sounds like a Jetson's flying car taking off. Zoom!

Routine visit to the family doctor

Has anyone else got a family doctor who refuses to prescribe any form of marijuana by saying that it lacks sufficient data or research to qualify as any kind of drug they feel safe to offer? My question is, how do they account for the numerous side effects and early deaths, mishaps and damage caused by today's legally prescribed, well documented drugs that they do continue to offer to patients and often to their detriment. If you are prescribed something that causes side effects there is no way to really turn back the clock, and doctors are well aware that people have turned to marijuana and cannabis products for decades in recent times and they could actually do research on that. Thinking about all the medical scandals that take place on a routine basis, not to mention the scandals in politics, religion and government in general it seems so petty to deny average hardworking people access to medical marijuana for their ailments and to deny the harm that many common drugs do far beyond anything that has ever happened with cannabis etc. Go figure.
