NBR: Do you ever... — The Bump

NBR: Do you ever...

want to rant to your friends here about a certain situation in your life but are afraid to because what if the person you're ranting about somehow stumbles across the bump, finds your post, etc? It's a totally irrational fear but when that person accesses your computer, it becomes a little more real.

23 hours to go. I think I have a Xanax somewhere around here...

  • I don't. Not too much stuff to rant about and, if I were to let loose on the few IRL situations that are bugging me, I certainly wouldn't put it on the internetz. Not because I'd worry about the people involved reading about it, but because I wouldn't want it out there... for the whole world to see.

    Ya, I know...that's sort of my deal, too (although I do worry about the people reading it because I'd hate to cause hurt feelings). Say I am having a bad day and *** about DH...it's disrespectful to him and in all honesty, probably unfair because whatever was bugging me was probably half my fault. PS. DH is not the cause of my current turmoil lol :)

    Um, apparently this doesn't bother me anymore.  I put it ALL out there.Embarrassed

  • I don't think my DH peeks or cares, sometimes he comes and sits next to me while I bump. That is the extent of his interest . His family (female members) might if he has told them, but I doubt they are checking and some probably don't know how. I don't worry about other IRL people  - I figure it's a public forum and I can see their posts and they can see mine. If they are curious, they can see, if not, then they can ignore them. I would never call them out in a post (or post any response in a post I happened to see) like I see sometimes on the other boards. They were posting IRL pictures (with actual names, ect) the other day. I skedaddled right the heck out of there.

    I hope you don't get *outed*.

    (Edited) because I realized it wasn't "at work"...DOH!

    guilty here too. i don't worry simply because i have nothing to hide -i am an open book to anyone who cares to read. i never say anything to anyone about someone else that i wouldn't say directly to them on here or IRL. 

  • Yes - I have a few holiday rants that I'm dying to get out, but am too afraid of being "found" here.  I guess I need to wait for IRL girlfriend rant time!
