A genuine expression of thanks and acknowledgment doesn’t need to take a ton of effort for it to be appreciated.
Do people not do e-cards or emails anymore? It doesn’t take a ton of effort to do a bulk thank you email to everyone who was there. It doesn’t have to be personalized for every gift given to acknowledge people’s presence and their well wishes for your new marriage or baby or whichever event you’re celebrating. I just… Read more
My dog overheated under the covers last winter. He’ll usually get out from under the covers if he’s not feeling it but I don’t know if it was because he was deep in sleep or what but I could hear him struggling so I pulled him out and he was so warm to the touch and dehydrated. From that point on if he wanted on the… Read more
I have a package coming in tomorrow which I know I’ll receive on Saturday. I’ve taken their delivery confirmations to be when the post office scans it in and not when it’s actually at my door. It really sucks.
Ah yes, the guest gets it vs the host gets it vs I made it argument. If you’re always the one picking up the check, just take it.
The older I get the more I want experiences instead of just things.

When it grinds down to… Read more
They could have all gotten together to get one or two big toys or an experience or something or even a charitable donation in the name of the kid. It’s really weird what some parents encourage.

I remember what it looked like but not what it smelled… Read more
My cousin won’t buy toys for her kids. Any toys they have they have received from family and friends. They still have plenty of toys to play with but nowhere near the amount that some other kids have so I think it’s a great way to approach it. I don’t know how other parents do it who cave in all the time rather than… Read more
All of them. Efforts are simply limited by the financial ability of each piece of shit family.
The one good quality that Satan’s butthole (aka my most hated boss) had were the chocolate bourbon balls she would make every holiday. They really got you buzzed which is exactly what I needed in that horrid office. I’ve seen a lot of rum ball recipes but never bourbon so I’m definitely going to try these without the… Read more
LMAO I can’t wait to read the hysterical posts from my Australian cousin-in-law because the royals are taking attention away from her wedding weekend.
This one actually shocked me.
