    So there's this girl, right? She's pretty cool, really smart, and generally awesome. I have tried bringing her around the group of friends I hang out with, which has gone well when guys are around, but every conversation if there's a girl involved wraps around to us liking each other. It's annoying frankly, even if it is the truth. We both have feelings for each other, but we're keeping things platonic until we both have the time to actually do a relationship. and even when we both are like "no we are friends right now" it's always this or that you should date or y'all aren't really platonic. A couple of the girls know her and me from an old class we took as undergrads, and went on and on in front of both of us about how I had feelings for her then, too, since we hung out a lot then, neglecting that the reason was she was in engineering and also choir too, so seeing her in a creative writing class was unexpected, and we found common ground. I dunno guys, maybe I'm getting all out of my box about this, but it's been grinding on my nerves so much that I don't bring her around a few of my girl friends any more simply due to the fact that it's ALWAYS about the two of us, as if there's some secret relationship going on that we don't want anyone to find out about. I don't mean to be down on women or anything, but it's happened with women exclusively, that's why I say it. Long story short, I'm pissed off. You don't get to tell me how I feel, and you certainly don't get to question these decisions. I mean if there was a right or wrong sure, but this is entirely subjective, and I won't stand for it any more. I love these girls, but they've generally been disrespectful to us both in this regard.

    Have you had a frank conversation with these girls about what they're doing and saying? And I don't mean the "hey, cut it out" in the heat of the moment, as if you were just frazzled by the whole thing. I mean one on one, straight-forward, "I don't like it when you do this." Explain that you feel disrespected. I am sure it isn't their intention. There's a possibility that they might be sweet on you themselves. Or, just being assholes and teasing you about her (which is probably the category I fall into, which I apologize for). But being very blatant with your feelings is the best way.

    So, my girlfriend for her mothers day present requested that I take her and her children primitive camping (think something between camping at a maintained camp site at a state park or something and back country camping.) I agreed as I like fishing and hunting which involve camping and besides it's a great way to spend times with the kids. So I get the four back backs ready, get a thing of dogs and marsh mellows and fueled up my dads diesel and away we went. We arrived at the trail head and I went down about a quarter of a mile where I planed to camp to see if it was occupied. I found out it was not occupied and started trudging back up to get the girls and I saw the oldest coming down to see where I was at and I hollered at her to let her momma and her sister know to get their back packs ready to hike down to the camp. She went back to the truck and that's the last that I saw of her for 5 1/2 hours.

    The oldest went to the truck and got her back pack and started down the canyon side towards where we planned to camp. Her momma told her to stay by the truck and she ignored her momma and went down the hill, and that was the last her momma saw her for 5 and 1/4 hours. We wound up having to call the cops and the cops took 2 hours to get there (it's a 44 minute drive to where we were) for the cops to show up and I wound up having to stop searching to go out and lead the cops back to where we were parked.

    During all this time my girlfriend had to call her ex-husband and let him know what was going on. Think of the laziest, mooching loser you can possible think of and that's her ex-husband. He's 35 years old and still lives with his mom, does not work, isn't hurt but has disability benefits, an absolute loser!


    By miracle the oldest child was found nearly 2 miles from camp cold but alive. After I helped search for her for 5 1/2 hours going up and down steep assed canyons caller her name at the top of my lungs till the bottom of my lungs were scratchy and I was coughing up blood I go to where the cops were waiting on the group with the oldest and the first person to hug her was the feaking loser! and he made this whole fake show "OOOOHHH MY PRINCESSS! OHH I WAS SOOO SCARED!" He went one to tell any one who didn't car about having asthma, high blood pressure, a trick knee (he even had a cane that he only uses in public) and how he had a panic attack the cops even rolled their eyes.

    All the above only annoyed me. What really hacked me off was when LOSER told the oldest that she was a good girl for not listening to me or her mother (which caused the entire situation in the first place.)

    Sounds like you need to conveniently shove that "trick knee" into one of those said steep canyons.

    Or just straight mafia and lead pipe them into Jiff's Chunky.

    I hope there is an SAS unit armed to the teeth somewhere silently black bagging ISIS members and erasing them from existence.

    I'm not one for getting over emotional but to bomb kids as young as 8 years old at a gig?

    There are no words. Right on my cunting doorstep too.

    There are just no fucking words.

    Gordon was back from work as a half day today and we spent some time looking at some (there are a lot) of the videos associated with the bombing. It is incredible what happened, with hostels offering free rooms for the night, taxis offering free rides etc. All thoughts with you and everyone in Manchester. We found out our other friends there (the ones you have met a couple of times) are safe. So sorry to hear about it all, thoughts with you and all your friends and family xx

    Me vs Client.

    Client: "Chris, how are we getting on with working out our VAT reclaim on our startup costs?"

    Me: "As I said to you in our last meeting, i'm afraid we can't give you the VAT position until we are satisfied we have all your supplier statements and invoices. Did you get them for me? I emailed you last week."

    Client: "Oh, I still need to do that. Can you give me a figure soon?"

    Me: "No, because as I said, I need to make sure we have accounted for all of your transactions to your year end date first. That's why I need the statements."

    Client: "Oh, ok. Well can you just give me the figures for the reclaim position and we will sort the rest out later?"

    Me: "I can give you estimates but they won't be reliable."

    Client: "Why not?"

    Me: "......because I need the statements to verify we have claimed VAT on all of the invoices and that your year end balances are right."

    Client: "Oh. Why didn't you say so?"

    Me: *puts on Balaclava and fits 9mm with silencer*
