I'm the child of an affair between my dad and my mom. My dad stayed married to his wife and sees me at my grandparents house every other weekend. I also do my summer visits at my grandparent's house and my dad stays for the two months to spend time with me.
My dad's wife and her kids (my older siblings) hate me and don't acknowledge me. I'm pretty mad about it but I kind of get it now. My parents did a shitty thing and while it's unfair, I'm getting punished for it.
So i gave up on having a relationship with my siblings. And I gave up on having any financial extras from my father after finding out his wife was preventing him from spending any extra money on me other than child support.
But my grandparents do love me and always invite me to family gatherings.
When I go, it causes my dad's wife and my siblings to make a scene and leave.
It honestly ruins the whole vibe but I feel like I'm going just to spite them because I'm pissed off at being treated so badly.
My dad obviously feels upset by it but to his credit, hasn't made me feel unwelcome himself.
Our city is at stage three and I found out there's a family gathering happening in a park. I'm thinking of going.
AITA for going?
I don't drink simply because I don't enjoy alcohol. However, I still enjoy going to bars to socialize with friends. If I am clearly just drinking water, I am always inundated with questions about why I'm not drinking. People get very nervous drinking around a sober person. I learned this trick from a friend who is a recovering alcoholic and it has made my social life much more enjoyable! I typically ask for a seltzer with a shot of grenadine. A lot of times the bartender won't even charge you, which is another nice benefit. But remember to tip them regardless!
Edit: but don't go to bars or social events during pandemic
Edit 2: I have gotten the comment many times that you shouldn't be friends with people who judge you for not drinking or pressure you to drink. I 100% AGREE. However, this is really a problem in large social circles with acquaintances, at family events such as weddings, and especially at work functions. This tip is just a way to avoid being harassed about why you're not drinking in those situations. It's particularly bad for women, who will get asked so many times if they're pregnant. Sometimes it's more worth it to just fake it than to be confrontational, especially if you want to just relax and enjoy yourself!
Hey retards, I missed you all. Glad to be back online after my year long hiatus. I've been to rehab, I've lost custody of my kids, lost my house. However I still found a way to play. I've been shoulder to shoulder with all of you through this mess. I've been hammering way OTM weekly calls in volume. This is the most fun I've ever had.
Through the madness of this past week of trading I've managed to claw my way back from oblivion. $GME has done a couple 10 baggers for me this week alone. I love you all and I'm happy to see you all again. So many new faces. I'm proud of each and every one of you.
I'm currently holding about $50,000 in calls on $SLV ..and $15,000 in OTM weeklies on $GME. Rookie numbers I know, but I just got my legs back. I'll be running again in no time.
LETS FUCKING GO! GAMMA SQUEEZE UNTIL THEY BEG FOR MERCY!
EDIT: Thank you for the outpouring of love and support, It is actually giving me goosebumps reading through the comments. I feel like I just came home. I'm going to bed but I'll try to keep up and respond to everyone. God speed and have a BEAUTIFUL FUCKING FRIDAY!
Closing thoughts: My calls on $SLV (Ishares silver trust) are going to be the biggest fuck you to the entire banking sector when Precious metals squeeze and bring down fucking JPM and all the fucking twats who are trying to hide inflation behind the curtains while they raid your fucking pockets. FUCK THOSE FAT CAT MOTHER FUCKERS
