Off-Topic / Having a stroke and cheating spouse.
« on: December 20, 2011, 08:54:55 am »Message ID: 463396
Not sure how I wanted to title this. The short of the story is my best friend had 2 anuerysims which caused a major stroke at the end of September. We nearly lost him that night. They had to cut half of his skull off to remove a baseball size blood clot. His wife stayed with him non stop the first week in the hospital. As the weeks went by the less she was with him until the last week he was in there she was not there at all. He was only there for a month. I had to quit my job to take care of him because he needs some one there 24/7 until he can get his skull replaced. When he came home she only came around once a week for a few hours and hardly talked to him at all. Found out for sure Thanksgiving she had been cheating on him for at least a month. Sad thing is she just got out of jail back in June and he stood by her and supported her the year and a half she was in there.

Once her family found out what was going on they moved us in with them so I could get a job and some one would be with him while I was out. Now she tries to talk to him every day. Only thing is she is always wanting something from him. I know he is hurting because of all if this, but I can not understand how you can say you love some one and will never leave or hurt them but as soon as things get bad you take off on the first gravy train that accepts you.

Any thoughts on this?

Off-Topic / Quotes and sayings!!
« on: August 05, 2011, 08:01:54 pm »Message ID: 397229
I do this on FB everyday so I thought maybe we could all join in here at FC and do the same. I know everyday there is someone who either needs a laugh or to be up lifted. The quote I felt was very inspiring today is:

Spare yourself from seeking love, approval, or appreciation - from anyone. And watch what happens in reality, just for fun. - Byron Katie

I hope someone else finds this inspirational as well.

Off-Topic / New Puppy
« on: September 21, 2010, 03:52:50 pm »Message ID: 241245
Ok so here is the idea. We decided to get us a new puppy she is at 5 weeks right now. I asked my boyfriend to name her and he said Artemus knowing I would not go for that lol. He says I need to name her. Only problem is I am not good with naming pets. I have 2 cats right now named Angel and Gracie.  Any one have any ideas? Her temp name is Heart because it looks like she has a heart for a collar lol. I am not comfortable with that name. We know she has border collie in her but do not know what father is. Any one have any good name ideas that my man and I could possibly agree on? lol

Off-Topic / What kind of job do you have?
« on: September 16, 2010, 06:20:22 pm »Message ID: 238552
Got this idea from Jor talking about his job in another thread.  ;D

I am in essence what most of you call a tele marketer. My formal title is Marketing Consultant.

The two differences with what I do and what you all deem as telemarketers is

1. We mainly do our business with business owners.
2. We only call businessses that have done business with us before.

Debate & Discuss / Locked Post caught my eye!

Anyone with any real experience with internet message boards has at some point come across a person, or a group of people, who are rude, full of attitude, or even just plain cruel. The question invariably follows: why are people so mean on message boards?

The answer is very simple. People are mean on message boards because they can be.

In real life, confrontation and abusive actions may very well be met with physical retaliation (i.e. they'd get a good smacking). Online, they are nice and safe behind their computer monitor.

In real life, they'd have to see the hurt or shock on the face of the person they'd just attacked or belittled, perhaps causing them to feel shame and/or embarrassment over their behavior. Online, the person they shot their virtual mouth off at is just a screen name; colored text in a little box, not a person.

In real life, people's actions cause other people to think a certain way about them. Reputations are made and consequences of behavior are deal with in a very real way. Online, screen names and email addresses can be changed at a whim; in essence, a reputation can be discarded at the drop of a hat.

With no consequences for behavior, some people choose to leave tact and decorum at the door, using the internet and its users as a virtual punching bag. Perhaps it stems from an inability to assert themselves in real life, or maybe they are simply incapable of realizing that there are actual people with feelings behind the colorful screen names. Either way, a person's online behavior is very telling about the person behind the screen.
It may be that those who are cruel, heartless and pompous online deserve the most sympathy. It takes great strength of character to extend courtesy and politeness even when it's not "necessary" (i.e. no fear of retribution if it's not extended). Pity is well deserved by those who fall short of that simple attribute

Some people can be cruel yes. It takes all types of people to make the world turn as the saying goes. A lot of times you have to take what some one says with a grain of salt other times what they say is what they mean. There is no need to twist what other people say. You should not have to be careful with what you say. We are all suppose to be adults.

No one can really say how a person is when the are in RL versus online. What you see with me is what you generally get with me be it online or RL. If I seem mean some times it will mainly be because some one has pushed that one button way to many times. With me it is having a certain religion being forced down my throat or some one constantly talking about stuff they know nothing about even after they have been shown the actual or some one who does not want to listen to what others may actually be trying to say.

My main question though with this post is this:

Is a persons online personna really different than how they would be in RL with the same person or situation?

Please no naming names or name calling to me that is uncalled for.

Ok my man has the flu right now and we are having a debate as to who is worse when sick the guy or the gal. I say guy just cause they can be big babies and get pampered. He says the women says I turn into Lusiezilla when I am not feeling good but as I pointed out that is only once a month for a couple of days lol. What are your takes on it?

Off-Topic / Deleting Threads
« on: August 27, 2010, 01:13:20 pm »Message ID: 227408
I am not to crazy about the idea of threads being deleted because it does not work out the way a person thinks it should. It is not fair for those of us who posted our opinions.

Off-Topic / Nosy Neighbors
« on: August 27, 2010, 01:54:47 am »Message ID: 227042
Just curious as to every ones opinions. Here lately one of my male neighbors would come over for about an hour and we would sit and talk. He is single and my boyfriend is in GA, and every once in a while company is nice right? Ethough nothing ever happens one of the neighbors started a rumor that he and I were an item. Well I am planning on letting a close friend of mine "who is also male" move in so that we both can save some money, both our cars really need worked on an it is hard to save up money for the small stuff these days. I know a rumor will be going around that he and I are an item. Usually I dont let other peoples opinions bother me and my boyfriend trusts me. Would this bother you if you were me?
