But it doesn't because I am a moronic piece of shit who cannot do what a god damned ten year old can do.

this is a side of you i have not seen before. cold[1].gif

My mom has some weird sort of early onset dementia - not Alzheimer's, but it has some things in common with it, and I can totally relate to the sense of cognitive dissonance you get from having to parent your own parent. Good luck.

sorry to hear that.

thanks - she lives in canada, and while she gets great treatment for a lot of stuff, this isnt something that they are good at, they won't test for anything that isn't obvious, and every time she goes to a clinic she sees a different doctor.

I still have not found my stamps, which means I have to buy more. If this happens even one more time, I've decided that I am going to try to leave the United States and move to a country that does not respect basic rights and liberties. That is because I do not deserve basic rights and liberties if I cannot even keep track of my stamps.

dude, put your stamps in the top right desk drawer, and get on with your life.

Apparently that is easier said than done.

^ these days business class is still no guarantee to avoid the screaming baby/child/annoying people.

is she staying at the new slmc hospital? I know you'd be busy and kinda awkward, but if you wanna grab a beer lemme know.

re: biz class... I take cattle class... although I understand that majority of the people at manila bound flights are as excited coming home as a12 year old looking at his first porn movie, the cramped space, plus the loud noise, plus the tendency of a lot of them to just strike a conversation with you is too overbearing for me. you'll way better off there.

3. her going out on walks alone - the weather is changing now, and if she gets cought in the cold she could be in trouble. she has gotten lost in my nieghborhood and she can't use a cell phone. but of course she sees this as my trying to keep her locked up
seriously, you think having to deal with a crying child is bad, try talking to a crying mother when you try to talk rationally to her
I ended up growing my market 24% last year. I only got compensated for the first 8 %, and now I am in a huge hole for next year, pretty much guaranteeing that I won't make bonus next year. fuck. fuck. fuck. I am so fucking hosed. the problem was, I was so close at the end, and so I put out squeezers to get in more sales, and closed a huge amount of business in the last 2 weeks. now I am going to be worried about the whole next fiscal year. I haven't even started my year, and I am going to worried about it for the next fucking 12 months.

sorry to hear that, z.... this sounds exactly like my parents' household ever since my grandmother moved in. except the relationship between my grandmother and my father has deteriorated for a lot of avoidable reasons.

and why are they only compensating 8%?

People who advertise their belief that God exists to grant their every wish or save them from their own stupidity. No matter what kind of deity you subscribe to, he/she/it does not hang around like some divine help desk to wait for your prayer to find your phone or save yourself from an F because you didn't turn your paper in on time. If you want to catch the bus, have some personal accountability and get your ass to the fucking bus stop.

^She's at a Chinese Hospital in Cebu. But funny thing you mentioned SLMC....
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Because thats where medical knowledge was inserted into my cranium. I was finished before the shiny new money making 2nd ivory tower was erected though...

I'm actually doing JFK-HKG-MNL then catching a domestic flight to CEB. I'll be in MNL for 3 hours, but have to transfer terminals so times going to be tight.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Two years ago I actually went through Manila then spent 24hrs there before going to CEB - ended up hitting the poker houses with old poker buddies and didn't sleep at all after 18hours in a plane. I did make some money but was fucking haggard by the time I flew home and my wife's parents saw my face and assumed that I was whoring/partying it up before being in their presence.

I'm flying Cathay Pacific - which actually has an excellent economy class, but yup I'm flying business only I have to keep it secret because if the siblings find out that I flew business while they flew Economy (even though I paid the fucking tickets and we're all on separate flights) they'll be slighted facepalm.gif

^ yeah, cathay pacific's great. just takes too long for me to get to and from the west coast if I use them. cebu's great! love that city.
