really sorry ed.
Thanks dudes. I legitimately believe that she is not that insidious but because she has no ability to read social cues or settings, I think she doesn't get why what she does is so hurtful. Like, there is probably some narcissism or whatever but I think the main thing is she has less than no grasp of what she does.

One has gone to live with the dad but still gets dragged into the BS and the other one is to young. At times I think we should just offer to take him and let her go live the single life.....
Yeah, I was talking to my mom about her last night because she's been pretty bent out of shape over my sister and the thing we both agreed on is that its a godsend my sister does not have kids.
But yeah, my mom is the only person I feel sorry for in this situation. She told me she feels like a failure when she sees how my sister has (not) progressed over the years, ruins all her relationships etc. She was pretty well shaken by it all and she really doesn't have anyone to talk to about it. I guess what really worries me is that she too honestly thinks the stress and worry of my sister will kill either my mom or my dad. My mom said now after my sister's blowups it takes her a week to lose the stress and physical tension it creates in her.

I'm not paying $16/lbs for salmon when I can get nice fresh stuff for $6 at the ethnic grocery place. My wife loves the idea of WF, and not surprisingly she's never aware of relative prices.
I like Traders Joes, but mostly for treats
So I have to be pretty frugal with my money and on many, many things, WF is cheaper than Publix. For example, I buy tofu every week for breakfast and it is usually 70 cents cheaper to get it at WF than anywhere else. For the quantities I need, spices and seasonings are the same price at WF. Most produce is the same price. What is different is meat. However, considering I usually buy the same items every week, I know exactly what to get at WF and what to get elsewhere. My apples are the one exception. I usually pay about $2 or $3 extra for the variety of apples at WF (fuck Red Delicious). Basically, my point is that its a mixed bag, at least what I have to buy. If I go see a movie on sundays there is a Publix next to the theater and I just shop there so often the point is moot, anyway.

Why are you still "friends" to begin with?
I am aging really quickly looking at photos of me from this time last year.
