Let's make it good as yesterday's unpopular opinions!

Re: FFFC

  • i am using recent experiences in my life as a way to filter out crappy friends without having to confront them. i am too chicken to address the issues and am glad to be able to use this as the straw that broke the camel. back. i am fully aware i am acting like a total chicken shiiit and should grow a pair.

    If this worked with family I would be golden, LOL.

    Hmm... FFFC. I am constantly giving myself crap about being a good parent. I know that can be a good thing, because it means you really do care about being the best you can for your child.... but it doesn't make it any less stressful. Even though my father sent me the sweetest email the other day about how great it was to see me with my son and how I look like such a great mother, I can always find something to nitpick at. I have gotten much better at letting things go, but it's a process.

    I may have something better later..

    I think sometimes it's best not to confront people if you want them out of your life. If you will get the same result with out confronting them than why burn those bridges? You're not being a scaredy cat, you're maturely avoiding a confrontation and taking the high road.

  • I have a great friend that is in one of the most retarded relationships I've seen.  I love her to death, we get along great, have very similar personalities and interests but her boyfriend is immature, selfish, has no motivation and I'm pretty sure is just going along for the ride (she's highly driven and quite successful).  Lately, they've been fighting like crazy with all out screaming matches and huge drama at night.  They're neighbor texted me about it, asking if I had any advice on how to handle it.  I told him to call the cops!  I know that it will go over horribly, the boyfriend will probably freak out and might get in trouble but I'm secretly hoping it will make them break up.  I'm trying not to meddle but I'm so so so tired of him and how he treats her.  Ok, flame away...
  • H and I were up pretty late last night, fooling around. I'm now exhausted and debating going home early, even though I have two meetings today that I should go to this afternoon. But I really just want to go home and sleep.

    Wouldn't have had anything to flame here if you hadn't used the word retarded to describe a relationship. 

    People who use the words retarded or gay like that need to be slapped upside the the head.

    TTC since October 2011. PCOS, single fallopian tube. HSG showed tube was blocked (this is but one reason why you undergo testing BEFORE starting fertility meds, kiddos). TTC on hold due to DX of Stage IV lung cancer in August 2013, non-smoker. Cancer found due to blood clot in leg (WTF?) DX Stage IV adenocarcinoma of the lung, with liver and bone metastases. Genetic tests of tumor showed positive for rare ALK gene mutation (only 4% of lung cancer patients have it). Started Xalkori (oral chemo) 9/13/13. Scan on 10/30/13 shows lymph shrinkage (yay!). Hospitalized over Thanksgiving (12 days) due to fluid around heart. Underwent surgery to install pericardial window. Xalkori resistance confirmed. Started clinical trial for a new (3rd gen) ALK responsive drug on 12/13/13. Scan on 2/3/13 showed marked improvement. Lymph nodes are shrinking, right lung is opening up and the lesion on my liver has shrunk by more than 50%. CT scan on 3/31 showed marked improvements in both lung and liver, YES! PET scan in two months. 

     
     
  • My brother and his wife live right beside my parents. They have three boys and my sil is a sahm but she never has the kids they are always at her moms or my parents. I love her to death but they dont do anything as a family. My mom and dad have the boys at some point in time every night. My parents both work full time and should be at a point in time when they can have time for themselves, my mom says she doesnt mind and loves having th boys but I know at times it makes my dad nuts. I just think my Bro and SIL are missing out on time as a family I just dont get it! They even let the kids stay at her mom's on Christmas eve without them!!! You would have to pry DD from my cold dead body on Christmas eve.

  • My FFFC is going to be that I've only been on this board since October..... and that I'm already bored with it. I mostly just check out BFPs and the waiting threads. Even the flaming is boring because it's always the exact same question/responses.

    It makes me wonder how certain people have the time/energy to respond all day everyday like they do and how boring their real lives are. 

    (I'm probably just bitter to be back..Sad..)

    How is it that grown adults still do not know that the "R" word is offensive in.all.instances, and DEFINITELY should not be put out there on the interwebs with total strangers? I see it on FB often as well and I go straight to defriend. ::shakes head::

    You are welcome to flame me for the used of the word retarded.  I used it appropriately for it's definition (to make slow; delay the development or progress of, hinder or impede) to describe their relationship.  

    I grew up with special needs children and adults in my family and close family friends.  The word retarded was never used to describe them or associated with them because it's derogatory when used in that context.

    I completely agree that using the words gay and retarded to describe something that is bad or lame is completely inappropiate and offensive.It is really offensive to use the word retarded to describe a person as well.

    My FFFC is that I used to use those words that way when I was growing up in the 90s. When I got older, and realized how offensive my statements were, I had to work hard not to use these words as slang. I'm really glad that most children today don't grow up using these words as negative adjectives.

    I needed new jeans due to putting on weight from having a desk job. I bought maternity pants with the validation that I hope to be pregnant soon and didn't want to have to buy new jeans just to have to turn around and buy new jeans again in a few months.

They have treated me like crap since that loser got fired. Like I did something wrong.I didn't even get him fired. His own actions got him fired. I just want to make them feel like the complete asses that they are.

  • Yesterday at my routine Ob/GYN appointment right when the doctor came into the room I needed to fart. It took me about a minute to decide whether to ask her to step out or just ride it out and hope it wouldn't come out when she was doing her exam. *they're usually the silent but deadly kind* so I just rode it out and prayed. Luckily we were both saved from embarrassment.

    You are not using the word appropriately for its definition. (By the way it's is for it is, its is possessive). If you were using the word appropriately you would have said that your friends boyfriend has retarded the progress of the relationship with his bad behavior.You used the word as a really offensive slang word. Own up to it.
