    My parents biggest fear is that they’ll become a burden to me or my siblings. I tell them they won’t but until I’m in that situation I can’t begin to think how my view might change in any of the described situations discussed. The last thing I would ever want to do is put my folks in a home but if I’m ill equipped(abilities or financially) I wouldn’t really have another option. Currently I’m the most helpful and active of my siblings in my parents lives, so this could be a soon to be occurrence.

    I have not. Nor is it anything I've ever witnessed.

    I've seen more recent posts and I hope all is well.

    The overuse of the word "gaslighting"

    My hell. The way it is used in relationship terms I understand. The way it is being used in political terms... It can apply, but please don't just substitute it for the word "lie." Gaslighting does not mean lie.

    Man, recently, I cannot relate.

    More specific to the thread, holidays where people don't understand little kids aren't always going to be pleasant. My wife and I are the only kids/grandkids that have kids on her side, and if I have to hear her sister or her sister boyfriend complain again about how our 3 year old won't smile nice for the millionth picture, or how they can't be quiet and eat nice, or how they're just too wild, I'm gonna rip her a new one.

    There is nothing worse than traveling to a slightly unfamiliar place with young kids, and then people wondering why they aren't acting like normal. Can't wait for her to have kids. Bah.

    Errors in close-captioning of TV shows, especially when it's not just an isolated error or two. I was watching some new show over the holidays and in the course of maybe 3 episodes there were probably 20-30 errors in the captioning. It was almost enough to make me stop watching the show.

    All is well, thanks. Just sucks I can never drink recreationally again. If I ever get around to a week long cruise with my wife it will be followed by a week in rehab jail. Such a ****** place, staffed by angry, underpaid employees constantly putting up with b.s., seriously messed up people, bad food, and nasty chicks who want to hook up after we get out.

    Having children does that.

    You know how to get good sex? Threaten divorce.

    See rehab isn't all bad. Friend of mine from Uni was from Vancouver before he came to Australia to study teaching he was a drug and alcohol councilor, never me a dude who loved to party more. I asked him why he left working in rehab and he said "man **** rehab, nobody is having fun there.'

    Good memories from my cruise of my sophomore year on Spring Break to the Bahamas. Hooked up with some hotty from Clemson. Then the second to last night I hooked up with her friend on the dance floor of Waterloo (I think that was the name of the club) for a little bit as Rapper’s Delight played. Girl was pissed. Whatevs.

    If you cant get laid on spring break just out of high school there is something wrong with you.

    Chick in the room, went to get her friend for my friend, got pulled into her room by two of them, then back to my room. Told my friend to bang her while I was gone if he could but never asked.

    That sorta environment. 5 from 1 group from SC.

    Another pet peeve: when I learn that I taught my students in a previous semester something that wasn't actually correct. Sadly this happens to me every couple of years, and just did today. This time it was because a textbook I quoted to my students last year (not our usual textbook) used a non-standard notation, so the equation I quoted for them was actually about a different symbol than what I had told them. I realized that just now as I was reviewing that textbook in preparation for the upcoming semester.
