I don't like my brother's girlfriend at all.

She's never done anything to make me not like her. She's actually really good about keeping us in touch and has been really great for him in general. She'll never know I don't as the only people I've told are my partner, co-workers she'll never meet and now you guys.

It makes me feel like an asshole because she's never given me a reason not to. I don't hate her and know I don't need to like everyone but it still makes me feel like a shitty person.

It's online safety training at work, so that means hours of lame jokes about whose gonna share the answers, then complaining about how there isn't time, then more complaining about how the computer doesn't work, then finally bitching while taking the course, then screaming about failing the course then repeating course.

It's 20 multiple choice questions.....

But I really hate her.
I'll think of a reason later.

Today's high is supposed to be 70F, 72F with the <ha!> humidity.

:hide:
I'm throwing figurative rocks at you right now. You better hide behind that couch, I could accidentally get close to you with on of these rocks.

We're having a relatively dry day, only 48% humidity. September is getting closer, and it'll get better.

Ask me how I'm enjoying the temperatures in mid-February. ;)

We're having to cancel our Disney trip.

Little things have added up, and we're looking at medical bills next year to have to cover with reconstructive surgery for Renea. I just can't make it happen.

I'm pretty sure something is wrong with me for the last two years. I think I need therapy. Sadly, that is not something easily obtainable in this city.

I understand that problem. Feel free to vent or ask for help here if you want, and though I'm certainly not a therapist and can't solve my own problems you can also pm me if you need someone to talk to privately.

Perhaps an online counseling service could work for you. https://www.google.com/search?q=onl.....69i57j0l5.4107j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Trying to say in english how I feel sounds impossible. One of these day, I'll have to speak to any of you in discord, to see if you could understand anything I say.

English is my native language and even I can't sometimes communicate how I feel.

I'm willing to give it a shot if you want to drop a message or two in Steam chat. Make me dust off my Spanish.

Got into an accident this morning on my way to work - in fact, right in front of my workplace.

She came speeding through the intersection - not sure if she had the green light or not - but I hit her right in the passenger side door. Did damage on my car's front bumper, some damage to the fender. Check her, she says she's okay, we talk about exchanging information. I call work to let them know I'm late, then try to call the police. I also move my car away from the rather busy intersection.

When I do - she's gone, daddy, gone.

So I'm in a quandary, which is why this one's going Anonymous: I didn't notice if I had the light (due to some issues that would make it obvious who is posting this), and I obviously plowed into her, BUT she sped away without any info - and I didn't catch her license plate, nor did she mine (since I live in a state without front plates). She does, however, know where I work, since she saw that at least one of my co-workers stopped to ask if I was okay.

...Now that I think about it, I don't think either one of us saw each other until the last second, because I think her line of sight was blocked. Again, reasons that would make it obvious who's posting this.

So. Police report filed, but I'm not filing a claim to my insurance right now since deductible isn't small enough. But my car now has a nice gash on the front bumper and fender.

I don't think it matters who is at fault at this point at least. Fleeing the scene makes it hers.

This is definitely the case in Quebec at the very least. When we got in our crash back in February, the insurance people explained that as long as the other vehicle flees, you could be coked off your tits and driving with your feet whike watching pirated Netflix, they're at fault. There might've been a slight embellishment on their part, but we appreciated the levity.

There are cameras near said intersection, but they're focused on something else. And the reasons for me not being able to see her probably would have obscured those same cameras anyways.

When I was driving the HHR I was in four accidents. None of them were my fault and none of the other drivers stopped. In fact, in two of the cases, their fucked up cars were forced to flee past their probable abilities to do so.

People suck.

I have a dash cam but I don't have it installed because of reasons that begin and end with the alphabet, IYKWIM

Uh... is it a weather issue? Dash cam with a super capacitor instead of a battery is what you want. Preferably one that is easy to un-mount and bring inside if you have uncovered parking.

So my whine for the day. My biological father died yesterday. I've only met the man once and he didn't say much at all or care that I was there. I found out because my cousin sent me an email telling me how sorry he was. Then I went and SEARCHED and found my brother's Facebook post.

I don't know how I feel about it. I'm not that upset. I didn't know the man and what I do know doesn't really impress me. I'm hurt my siblings didn't think enough of me to reach out, but I know they are going through a lot more than I am so I can't say I really blame them.

I don't know. I just don't know how to feel about it all right now.

Sometimes life throws stuff at you that you just don't know how to process. That's probably true for everyone in this situation.

Not to be negative, but if there's anything up-in-the-air about his estate, it may be the reason they didn't reach out. I know you certainly weren't looking for anything like that, and it might not even be the case, but after some similar things going on in recent years in my family, it's sadly the first place my brain goes to.

I'm glad your not that upset, and I'm sorry for you loss.

We have apple maggots. This means my entire apple harvest from this year is now unusable. I was going to make sooooooo much stuff with those apples. We have two varieties, one that's great for sauce and apple butter; and one that's going to be fantastic for cider - and I could easily pull another two or three bushels from each tree (in addition to the half-bushel I'd already picked of each). That leaves me with pickling cucumbers, what will likely be a whole crop of green tomatoes (bad sun exposure, late planting), a whole mess of pole beans, five cups of blackberries, several dozen jalapenos, and a gallon of wild plums; so I'm set for savory preserves, but I'm going to be running low on sweet preserves mid-winter unless I can find a cheap source of apples or pears somewhere.
