  • My Dad wants to know how much I saved up. Is it any of his business?

    I just separated from the Air Force. I'm back home until I can find a job and start working again. My dad has had his job for 30 years and thinks I should be filling out applications door to door and looking in the paper at the want ads. He totally doesn't get that everything is by computer now.

    I just separated from the Air Force. I'm back home until I can find a job and start working again. My dad has had his job for 30 years and thinks I should be filling out applications door to door and looking in the paper at the want ads. He totally doesn't get that everything is by computer now. Even though in a week, I've scored three job interviews. First two are tomorrow. Another thing is he keeps wanting to know how much I saved up in four years with the AIr Force. His advice was to add up what I would spend on rent, and food, and since those were free in the Air Force, to bank the rest. Well that would have left me with like $12, and I needed a car, and haircuts, and insurance, and a phone, and deodorant, and razors, and shaving cream. I was able to save quite a bit. But I'm sure he won't think it is enough. I am living with my parents now until I can get a job and a few paychecks. But Dad is treating me like I'm 16 all over again. How do I tell him to back off?

  • Does my brother think he's going to die?

    My brother is 24 and in August entered the USN. He is set to shove off on his first mission at sea for nine months later this week. It is a routine training exercise he claims.

    My brother is 24 and in August entered the USN. He is set to shove off on his first mission at sea for nine months later this week. It is a routine training exercise he claims. Friday he called me and said he had a will drafted and named me as the executrices and was sending me a copy. He said he was not sick and had no foreboding about his mission but that no one has the promise of another sunrise. Then on Sunday I found he purchased a plot in the churchyard cemetery. Today I got a copy of the will. It leaves the bulk of his assets to his fiancée. The thing is it assumes he will die before he is married which is scheduled for Feb. as soon as he returns. His job has something to do with data gathering and encryption. He can't speak much about his job. He jokes that he could tell us but he'd have to kill us. Now I'm thinking he knows more than he's letting on and this mission isn't as safe and routine as he is claiming. I've been known to borrow trouble, but how many 23 yos are having wills drawn up and buying grave plots? DO I have a right to be worried.

  • Is it wrong for me not to wear a bra at home?

    Best answer: No, it is not wrong not to wear a bra. It is perfectly OK not to wear one wherever you are. Your comfort should be your main concern. If the situation at home is such that you have to cover your breasts before others, then there are many options. You can buy a robe, an oversized t-shirt, or a zip-up hoodie. If I... show more

You can buy a robe, an oversized t-shirt, or a zip-up hoodie. If I was you I would sit everyone at home and tell them you feel you have a right to be comfortable, and that you would appreciate to have this freedom. We are not in the middle ages.

  • Can I come back or did I burn that bridge when I left?

    I aged out of the foster care system. The last family I was with treated me very, very well. They treated me so well I forgot what every foster kid needs to never forget. I wasn't their kid. I had thought that there would be no problem staying with them when I aged out. I'd get a job and go to college,... show more
    I aged out of the foster care system. The last family I was with treated me very, very well. They treated me so well I forgot what every foster kid needs to never forget. I wasn't their kid. I had thought that there would be no problem staying with them when I aged out. I'd get a job and go to college, and it would be great. As the time for me to make plans was approaching, the way they were talking left no doubt staying with them was not an option. I aged out my last day of high school, and then I'd be on my own. So I entered the military. I did basic training the summer between my junior and senior year of hs so I could hit the ground running as soon as high school was over. My last day of high school was on a Wed. The next day I was being delivered by my foster father to MEPS to head out to A-School. It felt like he was delivering me to serve a four year sentence in a maximum security prison. I didn't help I would be missing graduation and all my friends' graduation parties. When I got out my foster father said probably the exact wrong thing to say at that moment. He told me that he loved me as if he was his own son. That infuriated me. SO instead of saying, "Thanks for all you've done, Mr. B. I'll see ya when I see ya." and left it at that, I instead said, "Really? So you're going to turn Parker and Jonathan out the day before their graduation to fend for themselves?" He tried to say something, but I just grabbed my duffel bag and left.

    Okay, so my dad basically got me a camp counselor job at a tennis camp for 5 year olds that starts literally the Monday after school ends (school ends on a Friday) and lasts until September 8th (two days before school starts) the hours are from 9am-3:30pm. He's already emailed the manager impersonating me and basically singing me up for a job I don't want RIGHT AFTER SCHOOL ENDS. I'm 15 years old and in 10th grade. Plus my mom is forcing me to a stressful SAT prep class every Tuesday at 4:15 (so right after the camp ends), and my mom has also signed me up for an internship at her work where I have to do sell sheets every week and a second internship where I have to make 15 second videos twice a week for my mom's friend's business. PLUS I'm being forced to do volunteer work at a store for poor people every Wednesday from 4-6pm AND I'm being forced to help out at a senior home every Friday from 5-7pm. My mom is also planning to make me read for 2 hours every day as well and I hate reading... I never get a break. And my parents have already accepted all of these jobs. I've never had a job in my life so this is A LOT to spring at me all at once... I don't even get a frikin day off over the summer. This is more stressful then school... I am SO bummed... Summer has always been my time off. HOW WILL I DO IT?

    My daughter in law controls everything to do with my son and grandchildren. Everything has to be done on her terms and her rules. On Monday I received a text message from her inviting me to my grandsons birthday party which will take place next month. I did not reply to her message, instead I called my son (the children's father!!) To ask about the details. I don't think I need to speak to her talking to my son is enough When I called my son to ask about the details he said "to be honest mum I don't know much about the party, I'm so backed up with work, it would be better to talk to mt wife. She is much more involved with the kids than I am. You always talk through me. I think it would be good if you learn to speak to my wife directly" THAT ISN'T MY SON SPEAKING. That's her!! She has put that in his head. I said that "I don't think it is necessary". He then said "mum no-one is asking you to speak to her everyday or anything and i can't force you to do anything that you don't want to do. I just think it would be beneficial if you started to speak directly regarding the kids, events and emergencies. It could just be a few words doesn't even have to be a full on conversation. Think about it" The truth is I don't want to speak to her ever. She has disrespected me in the past and I am not prepared to re invite that into my life. Now she is controlling everything. My son and now my grandchildren. What should I do and should I attend my grandsons birthday party

  • I caught my 13 year old daughter masturbating, what should I do?

    Just a day ago, I walked into my daughter's room and found her rubbing herself to porn. I've never had this experience with any of my other children, so I'm not sure what to do. She saw me too, and got all embarrassed. She hasn't talked to me since. What should I do?

    My mother is 60 years old and I live with her to keep an eye on her. She has several medical problems (COPD, Depression, and an unknown problem at the moment where they found spots on her lungs in am xray). I run every little errand for her, attend college, work at home as self employed, my fiance lives with us to help and buys food, pays rent, etc. I buy household items, buy my mother stuff (razors, socks, basic care essentials, etc.). My fiance works at a grocery store part time and is going back to college. The problem with my mother is that she has constant mood swings, demands restaurant food (even though we are by no means rich, and wastes her widower pension (rent and pay places, her new boyfriend, etc.) My fiance had to pay the last electric bill as she didn't have the money when she draws close to $1,000 a month. She is very irresponsible and acts like a child sometimes. She will pay the car payment, car insurance, and lot rent but that's all! She only keeps the car to run her boyfriend all around town and buy him things. We help out all we can and I feel like she is not doing her part. She doesn't work but won't let me use the car to go to college or get a regular job, even if I offer to put in gas and such.Do a lot of elderly act like this?

  • My mother is fat and ugly. How do I stop feeling embarrassed of her?

    Best answer: Look at your own attitude first. Whatever she is or isn't it doesn't mean she deserves your scorn or embarrassment. If I were her I'd be embarrassed too by your attitude.

    Hey guys. I'm a fourteen year old girl. I've been feeling quite down lately. I always help my mum, whether it be cleaning dishes or cleaning the house. My mum is a single mum, my dad lives somewhere else but visits at times. Earlier today my mum told me to wash the dishes and I was quite tired and told her to 'wait, I'll do it later'. Which I was going to. But my mum went to the kitchen and literally broke everything - she threw the cups and plates and they all shattered. she ended up injuring herself and there was blood. it was very disturbing. she was screaming a lot too. she then told me she didnt want me anymore and that she wanted me to 'go and live with my dad'. I didnt know what to do. i locked myself in my room. i can hear her complaining about me to my dad. if everyone is doing this to me, i want to run away from home or jump in front of a moving car. i dont want to go school tomorrow. my mum is alwaysviolent and for the smallest reason she goes crazy. ive had enough. shes thrpwn a vase at me before and it shattered beside me
