    Awful drivers who park like dogshit. How hard is it of a task to not take more than one space? Really?

    The ones who park like jerks on purpose so you don't park near them also infuriate me. I have a better car than you and I don't even do it. No one is gonna hit your Mazda bro.

    Craigslist buyers who ask you to negotiate and go down on your price, then ask if you can deliver it to them.

    That's one of the side effects? My wife already had a small bladder and was wondering why it felt like if she drank anything she'd have to go pee almost immediately.

    We're in WA state but she has a very strong aversion to marijuana. One of the 'old people' things where she thinks that it's just there to make you high, nothing more. I can't convince her to even try anything related to it.

    Yes. I pee so much more now than I did before starting on gabapentin 11 years ago.

    As for marijuana, it’s hard to convince people. My now deceased friend also refused to try any marijuana related options to treat his cancer until it was way too late for those options to help.

    Maybe try and see if she will test out CBD oil first? Typically, you don’t get high from it especially if you choose a hemp based one (as opposed to the stronger marijuana based ones).

    I'm considering CBD oil really strongly for my own shit (depression/anxiety/stress, not pain) ^^

    It helps with anxiety as well, so I’ve heard.

    Hmm. The last time I went in to a shop here they're like, "We can't recommend anything for pain" so that wasn't particularly helpful.

    And the anxiety thing could be a Godsend for me since I've been going a little crazy these past few weeks. Can't sleep, no appetite, all over stress of my new job.

    Based on many recommendations of cat rescue friends online, and now my own pet sitter, I’m going to try CBD oil for my cat. !!

    It’s everywhere. The CBD oil for pets is a special formulated tincture.

    @allegate , the benefits of CBD don’t require anything illegal in it to be highly beneficial.

    See this article: https://hightimes.com/health/cannabidiol-cbd/

    I’ll PM you a reputable site that was referred to me, “full spectrum” is described to me as “eating the whole fruit vs. just the juice.”

    My cousin had back and shoulder surgery for a work-related injury many years ago and has permanent nerve damage and constant pain; but he refuses to use opioids; he has a medical marijuana card here in Illinois. The shitty thing is that he’s a guitar tech for a blues guitarist so he can’t take his “meds” with him everywhere while they tour.

    I smoked a TON of weed back in the day and now I don’t WANT to get high, I’m in that group that gets increased anxiety from weed; but growers have created strains that WAY reduce (or eliminate) the properties that get you high and increase the medicinal properties; cannabis is the FUTURE of medicine.

    Big Pharma is terrified of it.

    Opioids are derived from the poppy plant but strayed WAY too far from its organic origins and are far too physically addictive.

    Cannabis is not physically addictive and the possibilities are endless. It’s helping people with M.S.!!



    @Louie_Cypher “DUI” means you can be under the influence of Benedryl. Cops are trained subject matter experts, I’ve seen the field reports and the data they use; there are so many people driving under the influence of PRESCRIPTION drugs, now, the field tests include THAT! “Influence” means anything that would affect the operation of a motor vehicle. Their field tests include things like pupil response, eye response, eye-hand coordination, balance exercises, there’s a whole list of them.

    Thanks, I'll check those links out when I get home.



    Crossing this post from the "Cheers you up thread" from two months ago:

    Also I leave my boss and his insanity behind. I mean, when he said he wrote me a reference he said, "And you're lucky I'm writing it now because six months ago I wouldn't have written you one at all."
    Why is it here now? I found out that the place I left is creating a position that is basically a hybrid of the job I have pined for since 2012 plus some other duties that are really exciting to me. On top of all of that, it would be a promotion of about $6,000 over my current position. Why does the universe hate me this much?

    I spoke to my wife about it and she says that she likes having me home more and that she likes coming to see me during lunch and playing ping pong (there's a gym here). I like this too, but I also like career advancement to something that interests me and could sustain me until I retire. I have at the very least 15 more years of this, and opportunities don't open up on some kind of schedule that I could take advantage of later.

    She has a good point though: I'd be working for the same person who was terrible to me before. (Though it got better when he finally came out to everyone. Seriously. He was working through some things I guess and took it out on us?) The thing is, I have heard multiple rumors that he's leaving at the end of the summer. On top of that, both of his assistants really like me so I have a good shot at hitting a lottery here. I think my best course of action is to talk to one of said assistants and find out the deal. It would look really weird, me going back to the same place I left a couple months ago.

    fucking "video gamer" culture. I stupidly joined some groups on FB around games that I really like, and I've never seen such a rampant outpouring of homophobic, juvenile, sex-starved, pathetic, cowardly, unfunny, ignorant, misogynistic, socially awkward (but arrogant), sad (but narcissistic), craven little men prance about and congratulate each other for nothing.

    Gamers, in general, are fucking horrible people, and I feel sad now that I like video games.

    EDIT: Just to be clear, I think video games are nifty... I just think I've hit a realization that most of the people who play them are the worst people on earth.

    Have to agree. There are some great people, but most of them (i've met during various online games) are horrible, pathetic people. I have found more decent people from the chat in some Twitch streams (from streamers how aren't dicks but just decent people wanting to play games with other decent people) so there is some hope...

    yeah, but no one who will see it.
    it has to do with my asshole cousin (the one who tried to fucking kill me.) i will tell the story later, if you're interested; i've got to head to denver.

    While i'm at it: here's another little thing that pisses me off: family drama in general.
    My aunt, for instance, is a TOTAL BITCH to my mom and will barely talk to her.
    My two faced cousin is her son, so it makes sense.

    Oh hell's bells, @eversonpoe , i've got to get to denver, but now i have to vent a LITTLE.

    Not only is he into snitching, he is into saying things happened that didn't happen. So i guess that's also false accusations. When he lived here, he was apparently fucking RECORDING my mother and i talking. Now, he has fucking EDITED IT and provided commentary to create a fucking false narrative to try to get us in trouble for drug bullshit that ISN'T TRUE.

    What's even more infuriating is that before this shit went down, he was trying to manipulate my mother into forgiving him and it ALMOST worked.
    He's a fucking psychopath, literally, and he wants revenge (for the case he caught for trying to kill me, if you remember that insanity. i signed a fucking affidavit of non prosecution and he only wound up being in jail for like 12 hours; if anyone should be seeking revenge here, it's ME. but i'm an altruist.)
    I don't know if you remember this, but his father, my uncle, literally shot someone at point blank range with a shotgun and killed him and claimed self defense, but it WASN'T self defense: he has admitted as much and brags about it regularly.
    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
    My cousin: while he is a whiny ass bitch, he's also INSANELY dangerous.

    I will tell more of the story later if you like (preferably via PM; i don't want to clog up the thread)
    it's fucking nuts, and it's still going on.
    i try REALLY hard to steer clear of these people.
    Furthermore, my cousin has been COMING TO OUR HOUSE AND RINGING THE DOORBELL. i know this because we have a camera. and he lives a couple of hundred miles away.

    I swear to god, if i wind up dead, it WASN'T an accident. and if my cousin kills me and claims self defense, it WASN'T self defense.

    in fact, if someone comes and murders me, my wife or my mother, i would like to leave this here: it was my cousin Jason.
    This whole thing is getting scary and i don't think him killing me is that far fetched.

    i really don't know how to do so!
    he doesn't live with me or even in this town.

    i think the best thing to do is keep all the doors locked (which is sad, because this is one of the VERY few places left in the US where people don't lock their doors.)
    We also have a killer security system (which is how i know he was hanging around here: remember, he lives a couple of hundred miles away.)

    And as much as i hate to say it, we may need a gun.
    never in my life have i wanted a gun until the day i saw video of him on my porch a few weeks ago.

    Last time we got into this on ETS, in this thread in fact, it went on for multiple pages.
    and i don't want that to happen again.
    it's not fair to other board members.

    a few more posts will be ok, but i don't want this to turn into the "elevenism thread" again.
    i already post WAY too much as it is

    A forum is a place for people to articulate their thoughts and feelings.

    There used to be an expectation that a forum post should contain insights into what was on someone’s mind or what their feelings were more than 1 word long.

    But we have LIKE AND FACEPALM. NOBODY GIVES A FUCK ABOUT WHAT YOU LIKE OR DISLIKE.

    Maybe try explaining WHY you like or dislike something.

    In my opinion, the like and facepalm features should be removed from this forum.

    Cue the facepalms (I can already predict who will be included.... starts with an E...ends with an E).

    i told you exactly what i didn't like about your posts. you contribute nothing to the conversation and just troll in an attempt to amuse yourself and alienate others. how is that conducive to being on a forum? you don't articulate thoughts and feelings, you act like a jerk and expect people to find it funny. and then you get angry when they don't. so explain that.

    I am cracking up all of these irrationally strong feelings about the facepalm button. It is fascniating, but in the worst way.

    Yeah, it almost feels like Twitter on here today!
