ARGH!











  1. My kids (7 and 9) have to earn screen time. Everyday, before games/screens, they have to read for 20 mins, do math flashcards for 5, and do their daily chore. On weekends, their "chore" is to play a game (non video game) together without fighting, lol!

  2. I want to add that the big multi packs of crayons may have several "reds" for example. When teacher says "color the apple red" and your non reader grabs a pinkish red or red orange because they can't read the color name and the wrappers all look red, suddenly there is frustration and confusion when his work doesn't look the way he or his teacher intends.

  3. You could have called the police, or called a family member, or told your sister you would call the cops, or taken care of the kid and gone nc or put sister on a timeout. You had options! Instead you chose to harm a defenseless baby to prove a fucking point. Piss/shit your pants and sit in it for four hours to see how red and raw your skin gets. And that doesnt even account for how scared and confused this poor baby, who had done nothing wrong, must have felt. Of course your whole family is against you on this. Its monstrous! You don't have to love kids to not want them to die/suffer. What you did was disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself. You sister is a gigantic ass for dropping her kid off without permission, but you managed to top her is assholishness. Congrats, YTA.

  4. Grown ass adults get bangs which look awful and they regret. Adults will make this mistake multiple times!!

  5. What should one do if they clarify what they meant? For example:

  6. My brother told me that since they made those comments outside work it didn't matter they were unprofessional, i disagree because they should at least be polite

  7. But the taunts continued at work! This is absolutely worthy of a report to HR.

  8. Nta. Remind him that you don't want to mooch off "his money" so you separated the accounts to protect his assets. Then tell him getting a job, like he said to, is your #1 priority, so you'll need YOUR car back for job hunting. If you don't want to leave someone who is manipulative, verbally cruel, and financially irresponsible, then please at least continue to keep your finances separate. He has proven time and again that he can't be responsible or respectful.

  9. Even if the affair wasn't the death blow, the refusal to take responsibility should be. If he's not owning it as his choice and his fault, then he's 100% going to repeat the behavior and it'll always be "your fault."

  10. Mil does NOT get kiddo until she acknowledges you. You turn your body away so she can't grab the baby and repeat your greeting until she responds, then she can be handed the baby. Same when she comes to your home. Just like training a dog, she doesnt get the treat (baby) until she performs the trick (basic human decency).Since MIL likes her husband to follow her around as some sort of defense, then DH stays with you, too. If she ignores you, its DH's job to say "Wow, mom! Maybe its time to get your hearing checked, because it seems like you didn't even hear my beloved wife and mother of my child when she politely spoke to you. I know you wouldn't disrespect my wife in her own home, so what else could it be but your hearing? Don't be embarrassed, it comes with advanced age." At the very least, DH needs to see how often this disrespect is happening. In a perfect world, he would return the biased baby book and request one that features you, and directly state that you are an important member of the family and he is hurt that MIL cut you out. Again, he can phrase it as though it were an accident "I know you're probably embarrassed about this colossal oversight, to I wanted to give you an opportunity to fix your mistake."

  11. The fact that he doesn't have $300 dollars is one flag. The fact that he wants to spend money he doesn't have is flag 2. The fact that he wanted the account info and not just the money is flag 3. The fact that he yelled at you when you wouldn't pay for an unnecessary purchase by doing something that made you uncomfortable is flag 4. The fact that he is punishing you with silence for having a reasonable boundary is flag 5.

  12. Yta. The painting is a one of a kind, thoughtful, personal present which took more time and skill that any of your "all out" store bought gifts. What is more half assed? Scrolling online and spending some cash, or spending hours and hours making something that can literally not be found anywhere else on Earth? When those shoes you bought your bf wear out, or you toss that sweater which goes out of fashion, or you upgrade that tech, that "all out" gift is just trash. That painting, however, will never stop being meaningful. It can be passed down in the family and may exist and be cherished for multiple generations.

  13. This is abusive behavior. You need to stand your ground. Never tell him the time. Sleep in a different room if you have to. If you want to play nice, buy him a big clock. I have one in my kids room that projects the time onto the ceiling. If he STILL wakes you up, then you can know without a doubt that this is him deliberately messing with you. This is a big deal and you are right to be upset.

  14. So your husband has moods, will snap if you try to address them positively, will make rude "jokes" that you have to make up for , has to be specially handled to defuse situations, spoke horribly enough to you that it offended your mom ( but you just accepted??), turns a bad moment into a massive argument, YOU apologize to end an issue HE starts, and he then gets to kick your MOM out of a shower she paid for??? Because he was embarrassed by his embarrassing behaviour?

  15. Yta. Stop making excuses for your rude, thieving girlfriend, and start being an example worthy of your daughter.

  16. Yta. What alternatives did you offer? How did you help?

  17. Yta. Even your bf admitted that HE stopped HER. Who stops someone while they're dripping wet? Easy. Someone who wants to stare at a naked, wet girl. Your bf is sketchy. 7 years is a big gap for a 19 yr old, and I can absolutely see why college girls don't want to live with a 30 yr old creepy man. You're worried about your boundaries, but are so casually dismissing your roommates very reasonable boundaries. I think the reason you are so upset is because you know your bf is untrustworthy. Why don't you stay at your bf's place?

  18. So, if youre really able to grab anything off his tray, as he states you are, then you should have had the right to grab your mayo back, right? The fact that he's mad about you taking "his" mayo is proof that he IS NOT OK with you having anything you want of his. So its reasonable to assume that you should have equal right to being upset when your mayo was snatched. He was wrong not to ask. He was wrong not to explain why he was upset. He was wrong when he stated that you had right to his stuff as an excuse to take your stuff, because that's obviously not true. Also, its one packet of mayo. If he can't let you have one tablespoon more of something than he gets, you have bigger problems than mayonnaise.

  19. I have to vote Moose. We have a rescue that came to us named Max but we call him Maximoose, Moose for short. He's a giant goofball who is a yellow lab mix and Moose fits him perfect.

  20. Yes! But be careful!! I smoked on a beautiful fall day, and went for a run. My Disney station decided to play "Paint with all the colors of the wind" from Pocahontas while a breeze rustled the changing leaves and they fell all around me.... And I WEPT. I had to sit down because I was crying so hard. Just sobbing on the curb because everything was just too damned beautiful.

  21. Kids have stages. Maybe he just doesn't like the baby stage? Maybe he'll be able to bond better with a walking/talking kid, or a potty trained kid, or a school aged kid, etc. I'm not saying he will, but its a possibility. I hated the newborn/infant stage, but loved my toddler so much that I had a second kiddo. Still hated the newborn stage, but now I have two school aged kids and its amazing. Does he have any positive relationships with other kids, like nieces or nephews?

  22. Nta! You didn't get him kicked out. You expressed a concern, the gym investigated and THEY found that there was a valid reason to ask him to leave.

  23. Nta at all. His reaction was way over the top. I can't say based on this one example that you should leave him, but this reaction is so insane that I highly recommend you take a good hard look at other issues you may have in your relationship. Does he call names often? Scream a lot? Is everything "your fault"? Do you tend to walk on egg shells around him, avoid upsetting him, fear/dread when something doesn't go according to his plans? Does he do anything else that results in you feeling bad about yourself? Does he have to control every situation, including your actions (clothes, hair, friends, events, etc)?

  24. Yta. She needs to see that YOU are a suitable partner, so start cooking, shopping, cleaning and generally taking care of yourself instead of letting your mom do it for you! Get a damn apartment, and grow up a bit before starting to accuse others. I notice you said your mom told you to question your girlfriend, maybe its time you stop letting mommy drive your life. By the way, its everybody's culture to have partners that don't suck, so don't try to cover your rudeness by claiming "culture." You made nasty assumptions about a girl who has her shit together way more than you currently do. If you can't see how stupid that is and grow to try and change it, then do this girl a favor and let her find someone who values her, appreciates her achievements, and can be her teammate.

  25. "MIL, if you are not well enough for a dinner out, then we should reschedule your trip. If you can't sit in a car for 10 mins to get to the restaurant, then a x minute car trip to us is out of the question. If sitting for a meal out is too much strain, then surely spending so much time away from home would be even more difficult. Etc. ( List out allllllll the contradictions you can!) Your health is too important to risk. You are precious to us! We'll schedule something for when you are well enough to enjoy your trip."
