1. Anger is protective and righteous. It is THE appropriate response to being mistreated and not getting the care, support, and love that you (everyone and you in particular) deserve, especially during the formative years of child development.

  2. Not OP, but will speak for myself. I have taken good care of myself. I got myself educated, spent a lifetime working on my career, and financially secure and live in a nice home. I have done yoga and exercised and eating well. I have good medical and dental care. None of that makes up for not feeling loved and not feeling lovable.

  3. I absolutely do not mean to diminish that or take away from that feeling. I am both someone who experienced significant neglect and someone who is hoping to enter the helping profession in regards to mental health.

  4. Thank you for your thoughtful reply. I think you're going to be a wonderful asset to the mental health field. Your compassion shines through, and I, for one, will take your words to heart. 💓

  5. Waah, waaah, waaah! Try paying thousands of dollars a year in taxes to educate other people's whiny, entitled kids when you don't have any of your own. That's something to complain about, not the type of FREE chicken you're getting fed, or that you're not getting FREE band while you're getting a FREE education.

  6. "You know how you're behaving right now? That's why I don't want to bunk with you. You're not respecting my boundaries."

  7. That's exactly what I was thinking when I was reading this. I have no idea why op doesn't feel comfortable with this person, but for me, their pushiness would make me uncomfortable.

  8. King st/Old town Alexandria is a fun place to spend the day

  9. If you’ve never been to DC then I suggest checking out National Mall and Smithsonian. Lots of cool things to see

  10. Thank you! I've been, but honestly, those are go-tos that I could go-to again. They never get old.

  11. So is this for the downstairs? And if so how much a month?

  12. Just point a hand to your mouth to indicate that you will give them a considered answer upon finishing chewing and swallowing the mouthful of food you're eating. Then give that answer, and after that ask them to respect your eating boundaries by putting their unimportant questions on ice until the end of the meal.

  13. I think it's the pointing. I can't think of any situation where pointing is the correct response.

  14. i can see why they threw that hideous rug in the dumpster

  15. But like no one even talks at the table... we all literally eat for 10 mins and dad takes about 20 mins.

  16. We moved here two years ago (we’re from Los Angeles) and we love it. Not too big, not too small. University town makes it super appealing. Close to so many places on the east coast. We’ve made some great friends, and post COVID are just starting to get out. Not one disappointment so far.

  17. Sigh, I moved here from L.A. 1.5 years ago. I kinda love it here, the GREEN everywhere, better traffic, and reasonable housing prices. But recently I have been bummed by the religiosity and Trump supporting hypocrisy. It's difficult for a middle-aged person to find her people.

  18. I’ve made a great circle of friends at the dog park, and we’re all of the same political viewpoint. And our ages run from early 20s to 80s. Come and join us, even if you don’t have a dog.

  19. Awww, thank you. Been thinking of giving the local shelter a visit anyway. Maybe it's time to see who needs a home.

  20. children with shitty parents will run their mouths off like this thinking that they are safe. Your kid isn't going to need your vigilante justice as long as they are being respectful. If you don't discipline your child, the world will do it for you. The teacher is wrong in this video, but so is that kid. A classic case of everyone being the asshole.

  21. He's saying "you say that shit bro." Or something similar. He's antagonizing the teacher.

  22. Thank you. I couldn't make out his yelling at the end either, but knowing what precipitated the smack down had me really curious.

  23. I immediately checked to make sure you’re the lady who posted in offmychest earlier lol. FR I hope you talk with your husband about this, the way he treats you is 100% unacceptable. You are a partner, not a breeding machine built to fulfill his fantasies.

  24. Aslong as its sealed it's fine :) Canned good are the best finds aswell as the packaging is so sturdy it's more guaranteed to be safer. I've had beans, chick peas, canned fruit etc and never had a problem !

  25. Just tell her you think her name is "good, but not great" and that your child needs a great name.

  26. One would think that the author of this article would have mentioned where the cross streets for this are.

  27. I sure will, come on over. I’ll make a deposit of my foot up your ass as well.

  28. I noticed that you did not have the courage to DM me your address. Keyboard warrior, huh?

  29. Why would I DM you my address? Especially someone with the IQ of a donkey. That’s obscene.

  30. Well, of course you wont DM me your address. You're some badass 12-year-old who thinks you're really tough when you're hiding behind a keyboard. In person a total milquetoast.

  31. I can attest holleyrooke is a great and huge neighborhood. I lived there from 1987 to 2003 . The neighborhood is mostly made up up split foyers and colonial type houses w a nice pool located upfront . Oh the memories!!

  32. Except when it's perfectly legal shit like horse auctions or livestock. I'm all for blocking puppy mills, but it's ridiculous the amount of hoops people have to jump through to say they're selling their horse.

  33. Horses and livestock are sentient beings. I certainly would hope that there is more scrutiny over buying and selling them. Now, if you're selling a china cabinet, feel free to do so without examination.

  34. Kinda interested in seeing if this could work out, but Reddit would not let me DM you. Want to try DM-ing me?

  35. There’s no tweak that makes it passable, the entire premise is corrupt which you already know. I would probably request no gift solicitation on the invite and, if that’s a battle which it sounds like it would be, then I’d distance myself as far from it as possible and tell my husband I’m very uncomfortable with what his mother is doing. He can fight her or y’all can just let it happen, poor etiquette and all, and hope those who will judge rightly judge her and not you.
