In school when we had to fold our papers the teacher would say hamburger style if we were to fold at the horizontal center.
Or if was hot dog style we would fold it from the vertical style.
Sorry if I don't make sense, just woke up and curious.
ETA I've been out of school almost 20 years.
ETA part deux I'm really stupid, I never really thought it was strictly an american thing.
I'm going to edit this last time to ask, does anyone know how to turn of the inbox replies on this because it's a lot. I've learned quite a bit today!
So the build up to this fuck up...
I work out at home and have done since my child was born. I like to work out to music and there is one particular song that for some reason really helps me get in the mood to squat. It's a song that I'd played for some time without question until 4 months ago because it has a few swear words in it.
My child had been listening to the song a lot more because they recently got into dancing to my music, I realised this when they repeated some of the lyrics and I explained to them why sometimes there are words that we don't use and why ect.
My child is very emotionally in tune and can express themselves very well. So after this conversation they were very alert to any 'naughty' words, so if they hear anyone swear now they will tell them it's not okay.
Let's fast forward to a few weeks ago, my child is now having a lot of big feelings that are resulting in big tantrums. Tantrums where they start lifting their fingers up and crossing them over into the shape of an X, and then saying 'off mummy, off' while moving this little X made of fingers in my direction. That confused me for a bit I must admit.
Then came the realisation.
We were sat down eating dinner and I said the dreaded word that every toddler hates - 'no'. That one word started something that let me know how intelligent my toddler really is. My toddler lifted their fingers, crossed them over, stared at me and said 'x off mummy'. I sat there for a minute while it dawned on me.
I composed myself, and then I asked if 'X' meant something else? My toddler silently nodded while staring at me... I asked what it meant and I was met with 'I can't tell you, it's a naughty word mummy'. This was all the confirmation that I needed but I knew I still had to continue to address this issue.
I asked if 'X' was the same word from the song. My toddler broke out laughing, smiled at me and said 'yes mummy'. They had been telling me to fuck off in their own very unique way during tantrums for a few weeks now, and I didn't have any idea until it dawned on me that X had another meaning.
TL;DR Toddler repeated a swear word, and got told not to use swear words. Toddler then created their own swear word in response and had been swearing at me for a few weeks
Little edit: The question was regarding the mechanical/chimical aspect, not economical.
I'm one of those people who constantly find themself up at 5am watching some men build a swimming pool out of dirt. I used to try and fix my sleeping schedule by going to bed early the next day but obviously I couldn't sleep because I had slept late previous morning. It then took me several days and potentially and all-nighter to fix my sleeping pattern.
Recently, I've discovered that the best way to recover from this is by setting an alarm for the morning. Yes you may be a bit tired during the day, but it means you will fall asleep earlier that night and hey presto you are back to being awake in the day time.
Edit - thank you for the awards! I didnt expect my first big post to be about sleep deprivation but I guess it does make sense.
Getting into your bed to lay all over the sheets and soak in your sweat and oils from the day is gross. You should be showering at the end of the day to get all the dirt and stuff off your body from being out and about.
I (5'11") stand just a few inches taller than the average guy. A standard bathtub length is apx 5 feet and thats not even counting the hangover shelf or the slope. The actual length of your bathtub is just 4 feet. Odd you'd find it difficult to find that number on any search engine but go get a measuring tape and give it a go.
As I've gotten older, I've been fortunate enough to have continuously upgraded my living conditions. I have found that bathtubs directly correlate w/ social class!!!! What the absolute fuck, I dont remember being any shorter when I was broke and its not like adding a foot of length to a tub wouldn't be a welcomed trade even if it meant a foot taken from a closet or towel rack.
I know this will seem like I'm cracked and maybe I am but its this sort of shit that makes me want to turn this "social class cold war" into something far less passive. Been oppressed my whole life and thats fine, in a lot of ways I'm better for it but when the simplest of pleasantries like this are so smugly withheld...it doesn't make me want to "Hustler harder to get what I want", it makes me want to teach high society how short they are when tipped over.
Anyways, bathtubs em I rite???
Edit: Seems like a lot of people hate their tubs too! Follow up question for my fellow 'miniature tub' owners...if a bigger tub wasn't an option, would or wouldn't you rather the standard to just be a stand in shower, with that bulky tub removed for optimal space?
Edit 2: I don't get out much so imma reply to all 600 comments, so don't get all fussy when I respond a week from now on "a dead post". If thats "so cringe", then maybe you shouldn't talk to strangers...cuz they might just be a weirdo
Edit 2.5 A: For the love of God, stop 'following me'. You dont want this. This train goes nowhere really fast, makes disappointing whistles and the conductor is just 3 trench coats in a child suit. Seriously, just look at my history, half the time I'm rambling like a mad man and the other half is symmetrical
Staying up late feeling like you got all the time in the world the night before a day off is 10x better than the actual day off where you need to be asleep by a certain time to get up for work the next day
As a kid I was constantly told things like ‘just wait until you’re an adult’ when I would complain about life. Now that I’m an adult, it’s so much easier. Everything doesn’t feel like the end of the world and a 9-5 is so much easier than the stress of high school and college. Kids have it pretty rough and I think most people would not want to go back to being a kid, especially back to being a teen. I’ve found adulthood to be freeing and while I am responsible for more, it doesn’t feel like it. As a kid it always felt like my problems would never go away, as an adult you learn quickly that nothing is permanent. (Obviously this post isn’t everyone’s experience)
Edit: holy moly I made this post hardly awake. I’m reading as many responses as possible. To all those teens out there: yes it gets better. Also seeing a lot of struggling people out there. Hang in there and stay healthy. PLEASE STOP GIVING ME AWARDS I DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT THEY ARE FOR
