    Damn, I'm sitting here chuckling because this is me too.... I had to sit in 9 HOURS of training this week on our latest product release. Well, we hired an internal trainer who doesn't know the product like the tech staff does.
    Ok, that's fine--- she'll eventually learn it, no big deal.

    But what pissed me off was catching her making up the answers within the first half hour, whenever she was asked something she didn't know. Then I spent the rest of the 8.5 hours finding every little thing she was bullshitting about, grilled her on it.... just because I was pissed about being forced to sit in this stupid training while having to work late to get my other stuff done. By the end of the first day, she was so frustrated her voice was shaking and I think she was almost in tears. Then I went to my VP to "critique" the class (with examples of the issues) and by the time I got done, the trainers VP was asked to spend the rest of the time attending the classes too so he could see for himself.

      OMG Betsy I think you are my long lost twin! I tell FI I'm "turning off the lights and checking the doors" so I can check BDW one last time before bed! LOL!

      If I'm ever in IA or you are in KY let me know! FI bought be a table top wine fridge that holds 6 bottles for Christmas. I'll be sure it's stocked!

      On and my real name is Erin. I've been thinking about changing my screen name. You always have to be careful of the crazy people on the internet, but here, I'm probably the craziest so it's ok!

Yes, I know they have behavior disorders so there are going to be behavior problems. Yes I know they oppositional defiance disorder so they are going to be oppositional and defiant. Yes, I know they have ADHD so they are going to be hyperactive...But DAMN where do you draw the line. I don't care what kind of initials they have naming their disorders, if I get hit with one more chair, or spit on one more time I am going to go apeshit on these kids. I confess that I envision throwing chairs at their heads. I confess that I can't wait till I am pregnant, for many reasons, but one of them is so I can tell my principal that I refuse to put my baby at risk by being locked in a room with these animals. I confess that I wonder if I should stop going to school for a Master's degree in behavior analysis because I don't know if I can make a career out of working with behavior problems if I'm burnt out already.

        Whew! That felt good sorry for the long confession.
        Yeah, you can only deal with the BS for so long. I understand. And I certainly understand not wanting to risk your baby on the fact... You poor thing

          I confess that I have very mixed feelings about my future-in laws.

          Most of the time they drive me nuts as they are overly opinionated and way too involved in my fiance's life. I feel like they judge me every time we meet and I sometimes feel out of place when I'm with them since I grew up in a different environement. I hate that they can hold our loan from them for FIs tuition over our heads and I hate how they use money in general to manipulate my FI.

          However, I also confess that I am jealous of my future-future SIL (my FI's brother's fiance) relationship with them. I fear that I will never be a daughter to them like she is due to the fact we live so far away. (They are in Toronto and we are in MN).

          I sometmes feel I'm missing out when I hear people talk about their FMIL being involved in different wedding plans.... however other times I'm greatful I don't have to deal with it.

            I know- I'm a freak of nature.
            My FI won't let me make him a PB&J because he doesn't think I will adequately cover the bread like he does. So, no, you're not alone.

              my confession:
              For as long as I can remember I have had an unhealthy relationship with food and secretly battle an eating disorder. I love food, i obsess about food, I am always thinking about food, I have even dreamed about food. I go through secret stages of intense over eating followed by periods of disgust and self-induced starvation.

              My FI doesnt know....shhhhh!
              Mel, as much as you don't want him to know, he will figure it out eventually. Let him hear it from you rather than find out on his own. But do it in your own time.

              Also, you can take medication for this. It's the same stuff you can take for OCD. Check it out.

                I confess that when I do the laundry and I put the clothes in the dryer I put one dryer sheet on the bottom of the clothes and one on the top and when my FI does the laundry and only puts one dryer sheet in I cringe

                  Ok this is really hard for me to say. But sometimes I truly hate my sister. I'm one of seven children. She is the favorite. She has 2 children (3) and 7 months. My whole family adores her because shes a "great mother" and knows all about kids supposedly. My dad always says "You should talk to Sarah she's so good at that." "You should be more like your sister."
                  I was best friends with my other sister. Then I got engaged and moved and she got angry at me b/c I was moving and she wanted me to watch her new baby. But I want to start my own family. And I have reproductive issues and we're hoping that I can actually get pregnant. So now she spends all her time with little miss perfect sister.
                  So the real rant is I've decided to have my child at home and I'm very natural parenting anti-circ, anti-vax, cloth diapering way to go. I've been in childcare for 12 years. I may know a little tad bit about kids. But everytime I mention anything about TTC or plans I'm immediately compared to her. It is getting on my last nerve. So she called today and say "Really you should read this your child could DIE!" WTF?!?!? Would I really risk my childs life?? And I'm NOT EVEN PREGGO YET! I want to slap the smirk off her face.
                  Ok I can't believe I said this. But I am just exhausted of it all and just want to be pregnant already. *SOB*

                    I confess that ever since my co-worker pissed me off a few weeks ago, I've been doing everything I can to get under her skin.

                      I wish FI was more interested in his appearance! It drives me crazy! He is physically clean, but cares nothing about his clothing or hair. I don't want to have to fight for the bathroom mirror, but I shouldn't have to stop him on his way out the door like a 4 year old!

                      We went out to lunch on Saturaday with friends and he wore his favorite shirt- which was dirty and it holes EVERYWHERE! It is really frustrating and sometimes a little embarassing! I can only imagine what will happen when we have children!
