Chaos reigns. Three goals with the goalie pulled.
I’ve had friends whose parents literally made them pay for anything extra they wanted. Their parents would buy them basic necessities like food and toiletries, but they had to buy literally all their own stuff aside from that. One of my friends parents even refused to help her get a car so she could drive to work and she was forced to walk to work every day just so she could get a car.
No, you’re not “making them responsible”. You’re just setting them as far back as possible in life. You’re gonna kick them out when they turn 18 and they’ll have nothing because you didn’t want to help them. Usually kids in this kind of situation are forced to work dead end jobs for the rest of their life because they couldn’t afford to go to college to get something better.
I just think, don’t have kids if you aren’t going to care about them or are going to force them to almost fend for themselves and constantly struggle through life.
I HAVE THIS CO-WORKER WHO AT FIRST IMPRESSION TOLD ME THAT I AM QUIET AND "LONER" HER OWN WORDS. SO I TRIED ADJUSTING AND SOCIALISING WITH THEM I BECAME COMFORTABLE. BUT THEN I FOUND OUT THAT SHE THINKS THAT THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME BECAUSE OF MY HUMOR SHE DON'T GET. THE WORLD WILL TELL YOU TO BE YOURSELF BUT WHEN YOU BECAME YOURSELF THEY WILL JUDGE YOU OR MAKE FUN OF YOUR THOUGHTS. SEE? THAT'S WHY I DON'T SPEAK.
Last Friday I suffered a nasty fall at work (I’m a chimney inspector) and broke both tibia and fibula and totally severed my ankle ligaments. I’m always in dull pain right now, and can’t even stand for more than five minutes on my crutches without my ankle pulsing.
The reason I’m happy is because my fiancé is a fucking soldier. We are actually closing on a house and this badass of a woman went to the final walkthrough herself, has been helping me get better, and working while doing all that. She’s been killing it with everything, and has just been awesome.
She’s been keeping my spirits up, I’ve been joking with her to keep hers up, and she’s just made me realize that I really am cared about, and that she cares so heavily. I wouldn’t wanna give up this woman for anything in the world and by god I’d fight a bear with this broken leg right now for her.
I just wanted to share that this woman has basically been closing on a house by herself, doing her regular run of the mill stuff around the house, and helping me with menial tasks like getting to the bathroom and washing myself. She’s a trooper and I can’t be happier to have this person helping me fight any fight that life takes on. I’m getting her something nice to show my appreciation and just want her to relax and enjoy herself for a few days. Just wanted to share. Thanks all

Me 28F and my husband 32M been together for 6 years we have a six months old baby boy, Whenever we take our baby out we use the stroller that my mom bought for my son before she passed away three months ago, she had an accident while coming back from work and ended up colliding her car with a drunk man, it was absolutely devastating to me because my mom and I were super close and her death was so sudden, I lean on my new family for love and support and that's how I go on.
This stroller holds a special place in my heart because mom gave it to me as a gift, my mother in law made so many nasty comments about it saying it was "ugly" and it looked "cheap" knowing that my mom was the one who got it for us. She kept saying she didnt like it and will try to get us a new one despite being told "no, thank you we like this one".
If she's so worried about her church friends seeing this "ugly" straller maybe she can get her own after she get her own baby.
Last week She finally did something about it, she called me and said she just purchased a new high end stroller and I needed to come see it, I was not interested in her nonesense, I said no thank you we don't need a new stroller when we already have one.
She tried to call my husband but couldn't get a response.
Yesterday, She stopped by asking why I don't return her calls and her Facebook messages and asked about the pictures she sent of the new stroller , I didn't open Facebook and I didn't see anything, she got upset because I wasn't giving her the reaction she expected. I went straight to work and told my husband to entertain his mother.
After I came home from work, I walked into my son's room and found the stroller was gone, I rushed out and asked my husband about it he said he didn't see it either.
I looked everywhere and there was nothing, I knew mother in law took it, I immediately called her because I was so worried she'd cause damage.
She picked up and said she took it to replace it with the new one she bought, I told her to return it immediately, she said no and insisted it was "ugly" and that i should get rid of it, I lost it, I literally yelled at her and told her to bring it back, she told me she dumped it at xxx and that I need someone to get it because she wasn't going back to that area.
I told my husbad to go get it because he apparently helped her remove the stroller , there was no way he couldn't have seen her taking it and putting it in her trunk. But still, he... keep reading on reddit ➡
