obviously im not saying parents should never drink in front of their kids, me and my wife enjoy a daiquiri with dinner from time to time lol. Im talking about the "it takes a village raise em, and a vineyard to tolerate em" kinda mentality. First of all, publicly and frequently blaming a drinking habit on your kid is horrific, and I see wayyyy too many people doing this. It spurned the creation of entire aisles in the decor section at stores being dedicated to wine/parenting jokes. its a whole infrastructure. it fills some peoples homes. You cant tell me that kids don't see this stuff and feel like shit.
Second of all, it romanticizes female alcoholism. How many of us know women who drink merlot and drive the kids to school immediately afterwards? or tip into a bottle the second the kids leave home, on an almost daily basis? And instead of it being seen as addiction or a problem, its just heralded as mom culture, which means neither mama or her kids get any help
I don't know how niche this is, maybe its nothing, but its something I've observed, it seems like a disturbing pattern.
I just won't. There's a local sandwich shop that is pleading people to come in and buy their food because they're running out of business and may have to shut down if they don't get enough customers.
Guess what? This place charges $17 for a grilled cheese, no wonder they aren't getting any customers. I don't care how good the sandwich is, I'd much rather by a mediocre sandwich from Panera or Jimmy John's or something for $10. I see this too often living in a less-populated are with more small businesses: just because you're local doesn't mean you get to jack up the prices and expect people to pay, then cry when your business model is run into the ground and it's "the people's fault".
Edit: this post isn’t crying about the way the world works and how I don’t understand economics. Let me rephrase it to “$17 is too much for a grilled cheese.”
The internet has done more harm than good and we should seriously consider deleting it. everyone is a worse version of themselves when they are online.
it’s a breeding ground for hate, and misinformation. most people are completely different or made up versions of themselves online. hardly anything authentic gets produced here.
let’s delete it.
I’ll start off with my experience in high school. I did sports all year around and was part of 2 clubs. There would be days I wouldn’t get home until 7pm. Despite this I still got all my homework done and even studied for exam if I had any the following day. If I got sick and fell behind on stuff or just simply had a hard time on a subject, I would tell my coaches/club supervisors that I would be late to practice to have a teacher help me. I’d likely have to run an extra 20 minutes at practice but education comes first. I’m not special, anyone can do this and some athletes in my school did this with all AP classes which is insane because even senior year I only had half my schedule AP to lay off some stress. The point I’m trying to make there is no reason for a student to be failing, even if you have a 75 average at least it’s something. However, to be failing high school is just pure laziness. (This statement obviously does not include people with disabilities)
Assume that you work Monday - Friday. Yeah yeah yeah, we all say it - Monday sucks; it's the first day back and it snaps you out of the weekend. Sure, lets all hate it as we always do.
To be honest, no... Sunday is the worst one. Friday you work but hey, you get to have an evening to yourself! Saturday is truly your day to do whatever. Sleep in, stay up, whatever. But as soon as Sunday rolls around.... It's your day off but you know that bitch Monday is rolling around the corner.
It's a day off that doesn't feel quite like a day off.
You can do a bit, you can have that day to yourself... but within reason - remember, tomorrow you're back to work. So if you went on that roadtrip Friday evening, you better be back on Sunday!
Saturday is the meat in a sandwich, Sunday is some mouldy crust on your very last bite of the sandwich.
At this point I know Monday is the first day back at work so it doesn't even matter. The fact I have a day off but know what's around the corner is probably worse in all honesty.
Edit: I'm hearing "so you hate Sunday because you really hate Monday?". Nope. I hate that I have two weekend days but one of them naturally requires preparedness for Monday. Again, it's a day off that doesn't feel like a complete day off.
He's just not funny. He makes the show worse. I just thought about this while watching on TV because I finally started laughing and thinking the show was hilarious, for the first time ever. Then my husband pointed out that these are the last couple seasons and that Steve Carell was gone. Husband claims that I'm wrong but honestly I've always found Michael's character irritating! What does everyone else think about this?
