    For years my wife has has this thing to where if you text once then you should be able to text all day. And she gets mad when you don't or can't reply when she expects a reply over something that can wait till you both get home. I recently started a new job a few weeks ago and right now I'm still in training. Yes, I have a desk, computer, phone, etc but knowing how my wife is I have not yet given hr my email address because I don't want her emailing me about frivolous things. Again, things that don't need an immediate reply. Well, Mon, during some down time I sent her a text and we had a little conversation. Tues I didn't text at all until later in the day when she sent me a series of texts saying how it was funny that I could text Mon but I'm quiet today. I explained to her that I was working and training and didn't have time. She wasn't hearing that answer. Her reply was basically, "oh, so weren't you training Mon? It's funny you could text that day." Ok, yesterday, Wed, wasn't that big of a training day BUT I was still at work and again, during some down time we had some back and forth texts. Last night in the store she made the snide remark. "Oh, you weren't busy today because you seemed to find time to text." I can't get my wife to understand that some days and times I'm available to text her but others I'm not. She even made the comment that I had time to go one Facebook and like one phone but couldn't text her.

    For years my wife has professed to being a cook. Yes, she can cook some things but that doesn't make you a cook. Me, I love trying new recipes and have just about ever appliance known to man. Well, several years ago I bought myself a nice KitchenAid mixer that I always wanted it. My wife has professed to not even knowing how to turn it on. Well, last night I get home from work and she was fixing some sort of corn dish to take to work for like a pot luck thing and I noticed my KitchenAid mixer bowl in the sink. Thinking she wasn't baking anything I asked her why my bowl was in the sink. She said she used it. I asked for what and she said to mix her dish. Again, think she wasn't baking anything I asked to see the recipe. She wouldn't give it to me but she did say that her recipe called for her to put the corn in a blender or food processor (which we have both) but she decided to use the mixer. I told her we had a food processor and she had a startled look on her face like "Where!" I pointed it out on the counter right behind her. I told her the difference between the mixer, the food processor, and the blender is that two of them had blades which is why the recipe called for one of those to be used. She had to puree the corn. At that point she refused to take the dish to work. However, my wife is one of those to where when I say "my kitchen" she gets highly offended. She feels that as a woman it's her kitchen. But she didn't know the

    My twin brother and I use to talk all the time. Constant text message back and forth. That was until he did the unthinkable in my mind. Well, several years ago he was made a deacon at his church and that seemed to go to his head. Little did his church know, he was openly cheating on his second wife. The pastor knew but he assured the pastor that he had stopped even though he hadn't. It wasn't like he was having an affair with one woman, he was actually paying escorts for sex. Multiple women a week. Well, there when our dad left my church where he had been a member for all of our lives to join my brother's church that really hurt me. There was a program at my brother's church to welcome my dad as a new member and I was very hesitant to go but since the entire family went so did I. Yes, I had a scowl on my face the whole time and refused to talk to anyone. After the program my brother sent out a group text to all the brothers and sisters thanking them for coming then decided to rip me a new one during the text. He basically sent a novel about how he would never invite me back to his church, yadda, yadda, yadda. Well, several of my other siblings got on him about that. Since that day I've refused to speak to him and that was months ago. We still get together for family gatherings and things but I keep my distance from him. In the past month, him and his wife have split and he's now going through his 2nd divorce.

    I recently began a job with a company but the 20 mile trip takes me about an hour both ways because of traffic. I applied to Wells Fargo as a customer service specialist and the location is only about 10 minutes from my house. Yesterday I had a phone interview with a guy and I think all was well because he was going over the training schedule and start dates. I mentioned to the interviewer that I had a few upcoming events that were already on my calendar. My daughter will be coming home from college for Thanksgiving break in a few weeks so I would need time off to go get her and also, one of my nieces is graduating from college in Dec and I'll be out of town for a few days. These dates have been on my calendar for almost a year. When I mentioned the the interviewer of this he completely did a 180 and informed me that I could not miss one day of the 8 weeks of training and informed me that I could reapply in Jan. Well, with a college aged child there are multiple dates where I'll have to go pick her up or take her back to college because of school breaks. With my niece, we've already made reservations and she's expecting us there. My wife doesn't want to drive that 4+ hours by herself. I know some jobs can be very strict on attendance but did I lose this possibly job simply because of prior engagements? Was I supposed to tell my daughter "get home the best way you can"?

Several years ago they built a house from ground up and shortly after that she found out that he had been cheating on her by paying escorts to have sex. They went to counseling and he felt that if she would have continued to give his sex 3 or 4 times a week like it was when they were dating he wouldn't have had to go look elsewhere for sex. Even with my master's in counseling I tried to explain to him that most married people in their late 40s don't have sex that often in a week. I told him that he was showing the signs of sex addiction. Paying random women for sex. Bringing several into his home. Countless visits in his back seat behind buildings or going to their hotel rooms for 15 or 20 minutes. Mind you, I didn't say all, I said most. Well, he felt like the counselor they were seeing wasn't on his side. Many times I told him to stop but his response to me was, "you don't sign my paycheck." So I left it alone.

    My wife has this idea that we're suppose to share EVERYTHING and anything she doesn't know she feels it's a secret from her. Several years ago I bought a used Mercury Mountaineer that I love. It is based on the Ford / Lincoln style that come with the keypad on the driver's door to lock and unlock the vehicle. When I bought it the keypad didn't work. Some 4 years later I decided to look into it. I discovered that some wires inside my driver's door had broken and I spliced them back together yesterday. The keypad now works great. Ok, I found the code in the truck so now I don't have to worry about locking my keys inside. There's a 5 digit code and I told my wife what the code was just in case she locks herself out of the truck. I think saw online that I could change the code to something more familiar to me. BUT, the factory code would still work. I told my wife I was going to add a second, more familiar, code and when she asked was I going to give it to her I said, "why do you need the new code when the old one will still work?" It's not like I am hiding the code from her but I've already given her the factory code and she knows it will still work but she now wants my special code. We're not one of those couples who has log ins and passwords to each other's accounts but she thinks I don't want her to have the new code. Why, when the old one still works.

    I have an issue I can't seem to get my wife or step-son to understand. My 23 year old step son has a 2.5 year old daughter by a girl. He gets visitation with her every other weekend. My wife and I get along with the girl and a number of her extended family. Her father, mother, and aunt. Well, lately, we have been hearing that they don't want the grandma to see the baby. The girl's dad has called me a few times saying not to let his ex-wife see the baby. When I pick up my granddaughter for her weekend visits me and the aunt will always talk. Very friendly, of course. And she will tell me that her sister has some problems. The baby's momma has even said that she doesn't want her mom to see the baby. It's not my place to find out why. That's their family drama. For a while grandma was allowed to see the baby and spend time with her but for some reason now they don't want her to. Ok, my step-son has been in contact with the grandma and he said that he doesn't have a problem with the grandma so when he gets her for his weekend visit he's going to allow the grandma to come get the baby for a little while. I told my wife that I didn't think that was the best idea. We shouldn't get involved in their family drama for what ever reason. My wife thinks it shouldn't be a problem if he wants to let the other grandma see the baby. It's his weekend and he can do whatever he wants.

My granddaughter was calling me last night to remind me that the event was in the morning. All my wife hears was "Ok, what time again? 8 AM? Alright, you know I'll be there." After a little more conversation we hung up. Right now my truck is in the shop and as convenient as it can be, my wife told me yesterday that she had taken the day off.

I'm suppose to pick up our granddaughter for her weekend visit today and my step-son said that he was going to allow the grandma to come get the baby tonight and return her tomorrow since her daughter is keeping her from seeing her. This morning I get a call from her other granddad telling me to keep the baby away from his ex-wife, the other grandma becuase his daughter doesn't want her to have her. Now, I think my step-son has already arranged for the grandma to come pick her up from us tonight and keep her till tomorrow but I'm not sure if I / we should. Do we go against the mom's wishes by giving her daughter to her grandma or should we just stay out of it and let them solve their own problems first? I don't think the grandma will harm the baby but at this point I'm not sure I'm willing to take that chance. What would you do?

    One thing people know about me is that I love to cook. I'm always talking recipes with people at church and I'm working with my mom to get her recipes before she dies. One thing I love to make and eat is guacamole. Last week I bought some avocados for fajitas but didn't use them all. To keep them from going to the bad I decided to make some guacamole. Once made I placed a sheet of plastic wrap down on the surface of the guac so it would stay fresh longer. Well, yesterday I opened the fridge to see that the plastic wrap was resting on top of the bowl and the surface of the guac was starting to turn brown. When I asked my wife if she had some she looked at me and asked "why?" When I told her that it was now brown because of the air that was in it she said she had gotten some. I tried to salvage it by stirring it up and replacing the plastic wrap down on the surface of the guac. Today I open the fridge and again the plastic wrap was on top of the bowl and the surface was again brown. I knew I had just had the conversation with my wife and unless she just didn't care or she's just that forgetful I seriously doubt she did it again. I sent a group text to her and her two sons who had been here this week asking who had some quac and her oldest son replied that he did. When I explained to him that the whole batch was now ruined because he didn't put the plastic wrap back down on the surface of the guac he told me that he had gotten some the other day as well.

It was a one time hook up with a girl I was chatting with online. Several months later my wife was going through my phone and found out. Well, we went to several counselors and, at least I thought, we worked through it. Some 6 years later we're still together and still doing things together and having fun. Vacations, family gatherings, etc. Well, my brother and his wife are now going through a divorce because he just can't seen to stop going to see escorts for sex. I have a master's in counseling now and when I tried talking to him about it he pretty much told me I don't sign his paycheck so I can't tell him what to do with his money. Anyway, when I brought it up to my wife she seems to always turns the conversation back on us and gets mad about it. I told her that by now, some 6 years later, she should have managed to be able to talk about someone else's situation without getting mad thinking about ours. I thought we had gotten past it. Yes, I know it will always be a part of our history but that's what it is, history. At least that 's what I thought. Here's the kicker, before we got married my wife cheated on me with a guy she was in the military with. They met up at a hotel and . . . . . But she feels that since that happened before we got married that doesn't count.

Well, I'm not sure how we even got on the subject but she made the comment that She got all emotional when Robin Williams committed suicide. I guess because one of the characters in the TV shoe committed suicide. I looked at her like, WTF are you talking about! She then goes on to say that when he died she was highly upset. My question to her was "why, you've never even met the man?" Then she turns it around on me and says, "Oh, so I can't get emotional over Robin Williams dying but every time we're in the car and one of your favorite gospel songs comes on and you tear up I'm just suppose to understand."

    My wife is one of those people who feels that she knows everything but is always asking you questions. Questions that she can find out the answers to herself. She can remember everything you said 6 years ago but can’t remember anything you told her 3 months ago. You’re supposed to remember everything she told you about her co-workers but she can’t remember the name of the teenage girl you have been picking up for church for the past 3 years. This morning I’m on my way to work and she send me a text asking do we have roadside assistance or we need to get AAA. Thinking she may be on the side of the road I ask why. This was her reply, “Why ask Why? Why ask this??? Because we need it is why.” Several months ago I switched our auto insurance policy to GEICO and had her download the app on her phone so she could have access to the policy and insurance cards. All she would have to do is open the app and the policy details are explained right there. No, she decided to send a text asking that question. I’m the type to where if I want to know anything I find out for myself, not reply on someone to answer the question for me. My wife will be 49 years old soon and it puzzles me how she claims to be smarter than me I’ve always liked learning for myself. 3 degrees and not wanting to rely on anyone for anything. My wife, on the other hand, claims she’s so much more smarter than me but can’t remember which side of the car her gas tank is on.

Last Tues I had to go pick her up ahead of Hurricane Florence because the school closed and as of right now there's no telling when they will open back up because they have no power. Well, when I picked her up all she brought home was a bag of clothes and her bookbag. She left everything in her dorm/apt. That included the TV that was in her bedroom at home which she took to school. For the past 3 or 4 days my daughter has been laying on the sofa watching TV in our living room, simply because the TV that was in her room is now in her dorm at school, which she didn't bring home with her. Yesterday morning my wife tells me that she doesn't want my daughter lounging on the sofa all day long. When I asked why she said, "just cause." She thinks that makes the house look messy to have someone just laying on the sofa all day watching TV. I explained to her that she doesn't have a TV in her room and it's not that big of a deal. In the living room there's a sofa and a TV, what else are you suppose to do with it? No sooner than 30 minutes later goes by than my wife's 23 year old son wakes up, goes in the living room, and crashes on the sofa watching TV. Here's the catch. He has a TV in his room. Ok, she didn't want my daughter to lay on the sofa and watch TV who doesn't have a TV in her room in our house but the minute her son does it everything is fine.

    My wife and I currently have a 50" tv mounted on top of an entertainment center with a pole up the back for the stand. We've had it for a few years and it's been fine. We can see it clearly and there's little distortion when you view it from the side or even a sitting position. We decided to upgrade to a new 65" LED 4k UHD TV but this one I want to mount on the wall because I'm not sure I want to put a larger TV on that stand. I've been doing a lot of research on TV mounts and I'm torn between the flush mount or the tilting ones. My question is this. Do we have to tile the TV on the wall? I've heard that you do that for optimal viewing but we have several flat screen in our house and they are all standing upright. Our TV in the bedroom is set up on the base stands that come with it and we don't have a problem seeing it. It's not tilted a few degrees forward. I plan to mount the new TV at about the same height as the one we currently have, maybe a few inches higher but do I have to buy a tilting mount or will a flush mount suffice? Honestly, is there really that much of a difference between the two?

    My wife has this thing to where no one ever invites us to anything. Simply / possibly because she's a bit unsocial. Anyway, last week I mentioned cooking out for Labor Day weekend. The first thing out of her mouth was, "just us, right? We're not inviting anyone!" Well, that meant my god-daughter and her three kids whom I loving call my grand kids. I helped raise this girl when her father was killed when she was about 3. Ok, Sat night we were talking and my wife mentioned that she had told her son and his girlfriend to come over. Ok, I can't invite my daughter and her kids but you can invite your son and his girlfriend? Her thinking is that her son still lives there so she didn't see a problem with it. No, he stays with his girlfriend at her parent's house 5 or 6 nights a week then one day a week he'll come home. To me, technically, he doesn't live here. He just keeps his stuff there. We were cooking out Sunday and I told her that we've never invited him home for a Sunday dinner because he's always with his girlfriend and her parents so why now would you invite him to Sunday dinner / cookout? And, on top of that invite his girlfriend to come over. I enjoy cooking and inviting people over. We had our 2 year old granddaughter with us because he dad still lives with us and I was going to set up the big blow up pool and let her play in the water. My god-daughter has 3 kids of her own now and I thought they'd have fun playing in the water on a hot day.

    The title may be a little misleading so let me explain. I currently have been withing a contract assignment for a company at a bank in the mortgage dept. There are about 8 other contract employees helping out the full time home loan advisers. Every so often the company will buy lunch or have it catered for the employees. Most of the time it's a free for all and we all eat. But other times they'll send out an email to say that the regular employees need to eat first then the contract employees can some get what's left. That's happened a few times in the past. I'm just one of those who feels that if I can sit side by side with you and work with you all day then I shouldn't be treated less than you. Today, lunch was catered in again and the word went out that the regular employees need to eat first and the contract employees can have what's left. My question is this. How would you feel if your company brought in food for everyone but told you you had to wait to get what was left after everyone else had picked over it and gotten most of the good stuff? I personally bring my lunch in everyday but there are some contract employees who complain about this. One contract employee didn't wait. He was in line with the regular employees. Today is his last day so I guess he figured who cares.

    My wife's oldest son, 23 years old, has a 2.5 year old daughter whom we love with all our heart. She's a precious little girl. People just love to see her. Well, last year when her son fell out with his granddad and he put him out my wife allowed him to move back in with us. I told her then that with him being back with us that meant his daughter would be there for weekend visits. I negotiated with the baby momma and her son to allow every other weekend visitation and that's been working fine for months now. Well, we didn't have her last weekend and this is his weekend again. I text the baby momma to ask if we could keep her an extra day since Labor Day was Monday and she said fine. I wanted to grill out and pull out our blow up kiddie pool for her to play in the water for a while. I just text my wife to let her know she'll be there an extra day and she nearly cut my head off. Her argument is that she doesn't really like having kids around. I told her that with her letting him move back with us that his daughter is a part of that package. She's complaining about not having any time to herself without kids being around but our granddaughter is only there 2 out of every 14 days. Then she says that I don't need to be talking directly to the baby momma without her knowing about it. Why? Am I not adult enough to arrange extra visitation or is she scared that I'm going to try and hit on this little 19 year old girl.

  • Does stress cause seizures?

    My wife's oldest son from her first marriage has suffered from seizures all his life. He's 23 years old now. When he turned 15 he started getting into trouble in school and eventually started getting arrested. He now has a lengthy criminal record which includes a felony. He also was a 2.5 year old daughter which my wife and I support and then a new born that was born recently. He's been back home with us since last Nov. and has worked all of about a month. I told him that he had till the end of the month to get a job or get out. My wife doesn't like that. On top of that, his first baby momma is now hounding him for child support. He thinks buying a pair of shoes every now and then or an outfit is support. This past weekend he had 3 seizures in the span of about 24 hours. My wife thinks we're putting too much stress on him and we're, me and his first baby momma, is stressing him out. Leave it up to her, she'd leave him alone for his health and continue to support his first child. His second baby momma hardly lets him see his new baby because he doesn't bring any money when he comes to visit. This is a kid who drinks and smokes weed but stress is causing his seizures for the past week. He's on medication for it but I don't think the stress of getting a job or supporting his children is that much on him to cause him to have seizures. Could it be the combination of the medicine, weed, and alcohol?
