I liked this very much! Your last paragraph is something important to keep in mind
This is pretty awesome
@Bill Fostex If this is what the mention of biscuits will get us, they need to be mentioned more often! Mr Biscuit 4eva
I loved this piece. I absolutely don't want four children, but you can tell how happy his family makes him.
This piece, as well as the three posts written by the women harassed are all super wonderful for expertly explaining the insidiousness of this type of inappropriate behavior. Thanks for the link!
As of this year I can definitely relate to this article. Relationships are only good with the right person, and there are so few of those out there! Really proud of myself for coming to this totally obvious realization, but it does mean that I'm done dating for the sake of dating, and have a totally awesome single life planned out for myself.
Loved this so much!
My parents are in a decent place, I think. They definitely haven't saved enough for retirement, but they have some savings, along with other things. They have a small business I know they will be working at basically forever (it only requires a part time commitment, so they are lucky to have it). My dad also has several rental houses, so they'll be able to get income from those. I still hope to be able to help them out in some way when they retire, even if they don't strictly need it, since they've always been there for me financially. It's very possible I'll wind up taking over the family businesses for them at some point, actually. I'm more worried about what will happen if/when they get sick and need end of life care. I really don't know what the plan is for that, and I don't know how anyone pays for it or what will be required. It's scary to think about.
I dunno, I feel like if I routinely hung out with people who required the playing of this game, I'd just find other people to hang out with. I'm definitely not a huge cell phone user while socializing, but I like to check it during downtime (while everyone is out smoking, going to the bathroom, while I'm waiting in line at the bar). Having that taken away from me because other people suck just sounds like a major bummer.
