Oh yeah, he kept me out late and kept badgering me to drink more than one...again a DUI would destroy my career plans. I don't care how much of a loser I am, and how boring my life must be...
My oldest brother and I haven't spoken in six months or so...why is this? I was in his city one afternoon and asked if I could come over; his wife was sleeping and it was inconsiderate for me to even ask over the phone...I should've known!


sorry to hear that, but that seems to be the way of the world.

that really sucks. i have had ups and downs with my siblings as well. it really can be a hard relationship to endure.

yours seem to be very absorbed in what they have going on. just smile and nod, and know that you are doing what you know is best for YOU. and that is what is important. as to what they think about you, you cant change that, so dont let it bother you. hopefully they come around sooner than later.

Thats miserable indeed, i'm glad that outside of cats and rabbits I dont have any allergies.

Decided to check in here, there's a problem with my mail as several pieces havent been delivered, some of which are very sensitive. Now i'm wondering how much i've missed in the last few weeks. Worse part is, I'm pretty sure its the delivery guy as I know of two parties from two locations that have confirmed sending me mail, which hasnt arrived. Really got me pissed off.

sad to hear... me and my siblings were like cats and dogs when I was growing up, but now they're the only people in my whole extended family that seems normal and I get along with. hopefully maturity sets in with yours in time

too much fun over the weekend probably. get well, man.

pissing me off right now: a key employee of mine has been having health problems... few months back we let him have a couple of months off to heal and see doctors and all that and make sure he comes back all healthy. so he comes back and now after a month he's having the same issues, and it looks like the medical care he pursued was inadequate to say the least. anyway, we just talked and its looking like he really needs to go and there's no 30 day notice on this one... and I don't have a replacement for his position which is very important for me and the organization. and just when I was planning to take a couple of weeks off in early november and go to the united states for a break.

oh, and family can really really piss you off.

no joke, on saturday night i stayed up way too late with my brother. (our families were staying at the same place in toronto). spent hours involved in fierce ping pong, shooting each other with nerf toys, throwing things at each other, flinging racquet balls at each other with hockey sticks... all kinds of craziness. have not horsed around like that in a while. it was a lot of fun, but i think it was no good for my aging self.

I don't really know. on one hand I am worried about him- he's a great guy and an asset to our company, but I also have to do what is in the best interest of the company and let him go if it shows that he's not getting better. really sucks.

oh, and I was talking to my sibling about this trip I was planning in november and she mentioned that she'll be in dc mid-november and she'll be happy if I join her and her husband there if I push through. dammit!

I did repeat that for more than a decade to my wife...
Family and friends are not off limits for being shunned..
Yeah, my tolerance for BS is set low. Piss me off too much or too often and you get banned. This includes family and friends.

Sometimes siblings grow apart, particularly when there is geographical distance and major differences in life experiences. I'm not a close to mine as I once was - too many differences.

Welcome to the club, I can only say drop them, if they want to have a relationship with you they will come back, otherwise your better off without.

post #35505 of 65168
Was visiting family this weekend, they're ~6 hours away. Six year old cousin has some kind of stomach virus when we get there. The night before we left, my aunt gets sick. Then of course it hits me in the middle of the freaking drive back. Nothing like driving though the mountains while trying to hold back vomit for four hours. Also there was terrible traffic and the trip took an extra two hours or so. I haven't eaten since Saturday night and sleep like 20 hours straight when I got home.
