His mother (my Dad's sister) married very poorly and she and the husband, after having my allegedly learning-disability-riddled cousin, promptly fled the area. Personally I don't think my own family's attitude towards their disapproval were helpful (nor obviously were the apparent shortcomings in my aunt's upraising that led her to these poor choices) but the assessments of the situation were not off the mark. My uncle has claimed mood and other disorders that make working too stressful for him; he has not worked for more than 20 years. In the meantime, he has had 2 failed suicide attempts ("attempts") that have them $200K in medical debt. Her son is 27, hasn't ever worked on a proper payroll, and has a live-in girlfriend (after a failed marriage, at 22, to a 16-year-old girl). My aunt theoretically supports all four of them on her residential real estate career, which, needless to say, is a shambles in southern FL. The reality is that they have been nearly completely supported by various gifts from family; my 96-year-old grandfather sends tens of thousands of dollars a year. In the meantime, my cousin drives a Jaguar (albeit a used one, but expensive to repair - more on that later) and my aunt drives a sporty Infiniti SUV. My enabling aunt has, more or less, stolen money intended for my cousin to keep the family afloat, while buying his marijuana because, according to her, it helps soothe his own mood issues (no doubt behavior inherited or learned from his father), and my assumption is at least partially because he has a possession bust.

They all blew into town for the holidays (extorting sympathy money from various family members along the way) and now apparently my cousin wants to stay here and work. He seems earnest and perhaps even with a very naive and nascent understanding of how his own family has really fucked him but honestly I don't know what to believe. Unfortunately, I have been thrown right into the rehabilitation effort in ways I'd rather not get completely into, but in the meantime, he's already got $4000 in car bills on the Jaggy, which broke down. Naive other members of the family are already ponying up to pay the fucking bill, instead of making him sell it and go lease a fucking Hyundai. In the meantime, there is all sorts of acrimony and bullshit flying through the whole family (e.g. me and my dad practically catatonic with the dipshit members of our family who are paying this kid's bills already - I suspect, despite a general family agreement to the contrary, they are about to plunk down for his apartment with the girlfriend, who, oh by the way, is in her 20s but has no driver's license and claims she will work but ???).

tldr version: my supremely dysfunctional, user family has blown into town and they are bringing all their dark clouds with them.

That sounds awful, best of luck.

Lawrence, I've had my fair share of bruised backsides. Avoid stairs at all costs.

That is a pretty shitty situation, douglas. Good luck navigating through it.

New office is like a panopticon and I'm afraid to open the forvm. That is my sole complaint thus far.

Goddamn nosebleed. Got blood on my shirt and my bow tie. The amount of blood I lost was ridiculous before I could get it to stop. Was like someone just turned on a damn hose.

Those are the worst, especially first thing in the morning getting ready.

It's funny, when Z first posted that, I was going to say something like "I never get nosebleeds. I think they are nature's way of telling you you are a nancy little turd weakling sissy." But then I thought, "no, hey, maybe anyone can get a nosebleed."

Then:

I should have gone with my gut.

It's funny--I was going to say, "I used to get nosebleeds all the time when I was younger, but I was a fatass back then. Maybe managing one's weight is linked to preventing nosebleeds." But then:

I am glad you outgrew your sissiness, ETO. Too bad you are still dumb.

Back when I was sitting in an open room (and when the forum was the old vBulletin design which was a lot less busy), I installed ad block on firefox and then flagged the SF logos and banners for blocking.

Then I was just browsing some random red forum. Still looks like a forum, but you don't know what forum it is...maybe it was an excel tips forum.

Heck...I bet you could set up your browser to change the SF logo to "Steve's Advanced Excel Forum"

Despite having sinus troubles since my early 20s, I've never in my entire life had a nosebleed.

I've had the blood-when-I-blow-my-nose thing, but never a full-on bleed.
