Post your random thoughts/feelings etc

Congrats, Sarah! :applause:

Was anyone with you when you bought it? Car salespersons can be very devious when they cotton on that it may be your first car that you're purchasing.
Thank you! My brother-in-law works there, so they treated me very well. My sister and brother-in-law were there to help me - I even got a discount. I'm so lucky to have gotten it because they never get these cars in with such low mileage.
 
when you're too nice people take advantage of you. people judge you. I'm glad not everyone's like that but it's hard to find.
I know what you mean, lily. Sadly It happens quite often too. :sad:
There are a surprisingly large amount of selfish people on this planet. Some humans are just as predatory as wild animals.
 
Sometimes I wish my brother would just disappear.

He's 39 and living with my mother, he doesn't work, he doesn't help out around the house, he keeps his room in a horrible state, and he's constantly hitting my mother up for money.

If anyone asks him to do anything he throws the biggest fit you can imagine and storms out of the house.

Not to mention he's gotten arrested about five times while he's been staying there and he never repays any of the legal bills. He owes me a thousand dollars and he also begs my 87-year old grandfather for money as well.

I wish he'd just vanish.

you can choose friends but not family.
 
No wonder why lol

I'm curious, why does he think people should lend him a single cent when he aint doing shit?

Btw WHY did the autocorrect try to correct "aint" to "amputado" (which means amputated lol) its not even close! One day i'll make a post just like It wants me to haha
He's taking classes at a technical school in a neighboring county, so he pretends he's got this busy schedule, though he's only gone for about ten hours a week. Half the time if I drive by my mother's house on days when she's at work and he's supposed to be at school he'll be there, though. I only tell her if she asks, since he's broken her heart so many times over the years. She's in denial about him and he takes advantage of it because he knows she doesn't want to be disappointed. He pretends to be doing something with his life and she pretends to believe it. The curriculum he's taking was only for a year and he's already stretched that into two, going on two-and-a-half years when it's all said and done. Eventually it'll come to light that he hasn't been going to class and there will be a giant fight but ultimately, nothing will change. He's an addict and she's afraid that if she kicks him out of the house he'll end-up dead. So they'll have a big blow-up, things will be very contentious around there for a while and then the whole cycle will start-over again for the one-hundredth time.

You may be wondering what his end-game is. Well, my grandfather is wealthy and my mother is inheriting houses when he dies, so my brother feels like if he hangs around until my grandfather passes-away he can force her to let him live in one of the houses (and sadly, he's right); so he's just spinning his wheels and making everyone's life Hell until then.
 
I was browsing through old thread because...uh, well, I don't have a good reason, I just was, and I was looking at the ones I posted in, and came across one that was titled "what would just make your day?" I wondered what my posts were, so I clicked on it. I also wondered who would make a thread like this, and if I remembered them. I scroll to the top.

It was me. I made that thread. I was reading my own thread from 8 years ago. :eek:mg::blushing:

That is gold, vj! :applause:

I know I have read some of my old posts in old threads and have no recollection of ever writing them >.>
Apparently the memory fails spectacularly when you are in a considerable amount of prolonged stress.

That is a tremendously sad and tragic situation, Fountain.
Your brother is a human-parasite, and your mother's maternal instinct (which nature has designed to be extremely powerful, to protect the species) has her tied up in the position of being his enabler. :sad:
I can't think of any way a situation like that can be fixed, I just feel very sorry for your mother.
However, you should be very proud of yourself, because despite being brought up in the same environment, you have not ended up like your brother. :thumbup:
