    This isn't really pissing me off, so much as it's an odd and slightly amusing (from a :facepalm: kind of perspective) story and I didn't know where else to put it:

    On Xmas eve I headed to the main suburban mall on my side of town, which I knew was going to be a total train wreck for parking and crowds and whatnot, but I actually sort of get a kick out of shopping on Christmas Eve. (It's especially fun at closing time, as the last desperate few stagger around in dazed panic) I posted to that effect on my FB page, saying I was headed "into the teeth of it."

    This guy I knew from high school, who had a baby with this chick, then married her, and now they're divorced and he lives with his parents, posted on my page:

    "lazy soccer moms too dumb to shop online despite having 4 computers and 10 credit cards each."

    I wanted to post something like "but we're not bitter, are we [redacted]?" but I didn't want to compound the situation.

    Whew.

    There are several reasons I am not in touch with friends from high school. That I am an asshole is only one of them.

    I understand. Even when I was a little kid I found it mildly depressing to get gifts which I didn't want or need.

    This Christmas my mom sent me a check for $50 with a note instructing me to take my wife out to dinner. Sharp gift, no waste.

    I see the Holiday Spirit of kindness has infected you. for now.

    Side note, I may use [redacted] in random and completely inappropriate posts.

    not pissing me off, but an update to a previous post.

    the girl at work who was in a car accident, caused by a drunk driver, is doing much better than we thought, and she returned to work today. she is in some pain, and we are sending her home, but she is a trooper to shoe up after only a week, and turned out to be far less injured than we thought. good news. thanks for all your kind words, guys. she appreciated all the support.

    Stopped by allergy clinic for Mrs. Piob to get her allergy shot. Place is overrun by out of control germ carriers. There is no parenting these days.

    I'm sitting in my parents house working...Got on a call at 10 and have been sort of working since. Lot of procrastinating/distraction (symptom of other people being up and about and not having any real workspace) but it's not how I meant to be spending my vacation.

    Now I'm trying to keep track of work I gave to some employees who are in the office. There's a skeleton crew in today, but they found me two people to work on my menial project (just fetching a bunch of documents from a web portal).

    One of these people started on this project 2.5 hours ago and is only done with 2 sets...I did 8 of them in an hour on Sunday night.

    It sounds like you're in a management role? That's pretty sick.

    Will you be reviewing them for their performance?

    Are we still talking about the shirty marriage(s) our parents have/had? How fucked up they were and how fucked up they made me have slowly sank in over the years. I think one of my greatest personality strengths/weakness is a great derivative of this. I've learned to detach myself from human interactions. I've turned them into an observation and science. Fuck, it's how I make my living. I've covered up the detachment with a keen sense of what doing the right thing is. I'm not socially retarded, far from it. The downside is that I don't let people get close to me. It's hard for me to form meaningful relationships. I have lots of "friends" but very few people I really care about. Easy for me to cut off people. I haven't talked to my sister in years. I went a year without talking to my brother until my dad insisted I do. I'm drunk and rambling.


    My FWB chick is fucking putting heat on me. No interest at all. Spent x-mas with her, was probably a huge mistake. God damn I hate being alone.

    Members who are meant to be 'senior' yet act like children and flamebait newbie members like myself, who probably get away with it anyway - trolls that accuse new members of trolling basically... Little ironic don't you think?

    im sorry, B. that is rough.

    i hope its not wrong of me to say this, but you are a good dude, and i know that you have a good heart. forgive me if i am overstepping me bounds. i dont think that it is an uncommon problem to have, being detached that is. it is a fairly common response to feeling pain or separation from a loved one that a person was attached to as a child. one defends themselves from being hurt again, by not allowing themselves to get attached to begin with. its understandable no doubt, it is even natural i think for most.

    as you said, it does provide certain benefits, but unfortunately, with severe drawbacks as well. i think that a person can separate the two. that is to say, to employ that ability when beneficial, like at work, but to also allow themselves to develop real interpersonal relationships where appropriate. like an SO, family member or friend.

    i dont think though that it is something that can be accomplished without help. its good that you recognize this trait within yourself, that is a huge step in and of itself. and i think you could greatly benefit from talking with a professional and learning how to really form a deep relationship where you (and the other person) would benefit from it.

    again, sorry if its not my place to say that. not trying to get in your grill, brah.
