oh if i had just stayed in school

Have been in school for a month as a 33 year old and I realize 18 year olds think the same way as I do. Again I realize how mentally behind I am... we share the same thoughts! Or... what is it?

YVR transport woes

This is what frustration with tedious transport policies looks like: you land at YVR after mid-night, rush to the train station to be told that the last train just left - (why these trains stop running for like 4 hours is beyond me), then you wait for 40 mins in a taxi line-up for a $45 ride back because we're the only city in the modern world without any ridesharing service!


Everyone comes here and bitches about things that their friends say. think or do. My question is - if they don't like it so much, why do they still have anything to do with these people?

No Brainer

Sure, everyone has their own opinions on bike lanes, but to spend even more money to take them out is just asinine.

You were my oldest friend

But you've ghosted me for the last time. I swear you get the period dude. It's cyclical, friendly, you start arguing with me about internationally known scientific fact, you are a pessimist, negative all the time. I've had a change of attitude recently. From now on its all about me. I'm the smartest, funniest and best looking dude in any room. You are about as Impressive as a garden slug. Good luck, leave me alone.

If we go out on a date

And you expect me to pay, then I'm going to ask how many dinners you expect until I get laid. And just to be fair, this post isn't aimed at any gender. Just an overall statement.

About apologies

I confess that I’m big on apologizing. I’m one of those people who spends an inordinate amount of time thinking. I rehash things I said and did, I recall events and wonder how I could have done things differently in order to change the outcome. I obsess over criticism from others who were involved in the situation as well, wondering if I was wrong and they were right. I play it over and over in my mind; the situation as it happened, what I said, what they said, and trying out various versions of everything to see if perhaps I owe an apology. So many times I’ve come to the conclusion that absolutely I could have made better choices in terms of what I said or how or when, or what I did or did not do. I’ve then reached out to the other person involved and I’ve offered a sincere apology for what I believe I did wrong. To date I’ve yet to have one of those people reciprocate! Not one. I’m talking about situations where I was more than justified in being upset or angry. Situations where the other party (ies) were equally (if not more) at fault for what took place. My apology was, in every single case, either enthusiastically accepted without any acknowledgement of their own part, or else completely ignored. So I’ve finally come to the conclusion that the majority of people have no ability or desire to examine their own behaviour, and find it so much easier to lay 100% of the blame for anything that goes awry on anyone other than themselves. I’m more than willing to be accountable for my own part, but I’m damned if I’m ever again going to offer an apology to someone who has demonstrated a total inability to be accountable for theirs.

Hot daddy dude at Colony tonight

Our eyes met a number of times, before I noticed your wedding ring. I lost interest immediately after that. Afterwards, I saw you on the street passing by wth groceries, obviously for your family. Get your shit together.

Can't Deal

My girlfriend has a kid and I just don't get along with him at all. He has had no discipline in his life and has no manners. He is 14 years old and I have caught him with drugs and alcohol. He cusses to my face and his mom and knows I can't do anything about it. He has fistfuls of cash which leads me to believe hes probably selling drugs or stealing. I am not his dad so I don't discipline him and this leads to a lot of animosity with my girlfriend. His dads in jail and I am fairly certain hes heading there as well just the way hes going. So last night I made mac and cheese for dinner and he says he doesn't want it and just throws the bowl on the floor and then his moms scrambling to make him something else. This is what I am talking about. He has no rules or responsibilities and his moms just catering to this. I am just tired of this and I just can't be in this relationship and am pulling the cord.

How to be a friend

I must confess that had it not been for my best friend at work I do not know where I would be today. When I first started working there my position was a new one requiring a level of education never previously required. My new friend was so supportive of me that she encouraged me into leaving the department for another position that paid better, aw what a pal. A little bit later I realized that I was not going to be able to rely on any references from that department and realized that what had been happening was real in terms of workplace bullying but still trusted my friend. Then a few years later when I was afflicted with some chronic pain she was selling marijuana at work so she sold me some and encouraged me to do more, even asking me to smoke with her regularly and then inviting people who were senior to me to join us. I had to stop her from that nonsense, silly friend. They did not smoke anyway. As time went by my credibility at work slipped but my friend said she was not involved in office politics any more. I had to fight for my rights a few times and she made sure to be absent and excused herself based on her health. Of course friend. Now a couple of years have gone by and although I am still employed it is like no one has ever heard of me but they are sure hearing about my friend. Wow, she has the same job as I do and she has not even tried... all she had to do was show up for her job and she became as qualified as I am and more. She now has plans to get back into the swing of things and is reconnecting at work, now that I may have to leave. She doesn't ask me to go out any more, does not talk about work with me and hardly seems interested in our friendship any more. She only comes over if I offer her something special like dinner out or free marijuana. She is doing so much better at work than I am. How that happened must be an accident. She would never deliberately sabotage me. Right friend?

I use marijuana to treat my mental health

I used to be depressed, an emotional eater, and an alcoholic. After having enough of useless pharmaceutical drugs and diets to treat my mental health and weight loss, I decided to seek help from a natural healer. He guide me to marijuana and which strains I need and dosage. When I am not working, I take CBD oil and THC oil (indica and sativa). It is almost 2 months now and I am now seeing the positive effects on my health and the decrease of eating. Marijuana save my life.

Rich kid adults with time

They do not have to work, invest in their future, and just go to burner festivals and pretend to be a working class hero.

A wandering eye.....

What does a girl do about a wandering eye, her boyfriend's in particular? Should she turn a blind eye, is it serious, what if it extends to looking at others' profiles online, does it lead to other things.....? Asking for a friend.
