Thanks for correcting me on the autosomal DNA thing, curlybat.  I should have looked it up to make sure I remembered it correctly.

I just got an unexpected blessing because of a DNA match. Someone on Ancestry matched with my mom's DNA.  He was looking over our family tree trying to figure out the connection, when he recognized some other names.  (We still don't know how we're related.)  He had inherited a bunch of family pictures and some of them included my family members.  His grandparent/great-grandparents were friends with  my great-grandparents/great-great-grandparents.  When he offered to give me the pictures, I figured they would be of family events from his family that my family had attended. No! He had two pictures of a huge wedding party in front of my great-grandparent's boardinghouse.  It was my great-grandmother's sister's wedding.  So it included my great-grandmother and her siblings.  He also had portraits of several of my grand-uncles that I had no/very few pictures of. There were about 9 pictures that were basically just of my family members.

One of the pictures was of a 3-4 year old boy who was my grandmother's cousin. I just recently made contact with another DNA match who is  that little boy's granddaughter.  She is visiting him next week.  She is going to show him all the pictures to see if he can name any of the unidentified people. How crazy is that!?!

And our floors are now a mess, because that happens every single time outsiders come to do any kind of work at all.

What kind of floors do you have...wood, laminate, carpets???

I would never lie for anyone either, it was more of a case A and B being friends, yet A and C blaming B for a certain decision to me and when I told this as a reason for me excluding B from the final decision making o she wouldn't get more accusations against her (and the responsibility for the desicion making was on D anyway and on me to be the one between coaches and parents). When I told B about the accusations of A and C together,  A very soon also spoke with her and put all the blame on C as if she had not said anything negative of her friend B and all the time putting blame on C also. And together they blamed of everything D, even though all of the blame of the mess was on A from the beginning because she had not gotten enough players to come and then because she made it clear we need to give her one player, but at this point denying it all and saying she didn't ask for a player but was offered one (by B, who had consulted about the matter D, because A was already so mad at us and making it clear we need to give one even though she didn't say the words could we have...

I thought I did point out clearly what A had said, but I suppose being friends with her, B just chose to ignore it and think I had misinterpreted it all.

Just a mess. But luckily it was only for that one night,no one spoke of the matter later, and we won the tournament  ;D

I think when there are actual factual lies it is easier to call out on them. When it's you said I said, it's harder. And I realized maybe A doesn't even realize what's she's doing, kind if agreeing with whom ever she is with... When we were leaving we were to get everyone together at lets say 10.00. I was planning to go get the girls 5 to, just from dowstairs to upstairs. 10 to she told one of the girls to go tell all the girls come up right now. When they did I stood with them waiting and she said how come everyone's up already. I said you told them to come up. She said I only told them to start coming up slowly, soon... which she did not. But I do believe she really thought she did...

There was a bribe. But the first part of the installation is done. And our floors are now a mess, because that happens every single time outsiders come to do any kind of work at all.

I hope it comes sooner than expected and without the expectation of a bribe!

The reason we are doing X is because I heard Y and F say that is what they wanted, and B and G didn't seem to object ---- have I got that right?

But do it (tell the full reasoning) when announcing the decision and ask if anyone can think of another possible solution.   That way all the two facedness isn't possible without everyone knowing that is what it is.

Fiber internet came to Sri Lanka in May 2015, and we applied for it then. Applying for it included giving the phone company a deposit, which was paid for at the time. Although, as it turns out, there were two payments for two separate reasons to the phone company - the second one was in cash and it never appears on their accounting, so it was pocketed by whoever took it. We didn't know that because the phone company created a second account in the husband's name, and that's where the payment and the fiber installation request went. We expect we'll have to make this payment again. This is a side story.

Fast forward a while. The phone company, despite so very many phone calls to them by the husband, finally started sending out crews to inspect the apartment building and decide how things could be done a few months back. Today, one of those crews showed up to install the fiber. We suspect there is a bribe in our future, which is another side story.

So the wiring is being done today. Finally. But this is not the end. We will still have to wait for the phone company to come out and install the box and set that up. That could be another... month? Two? More?

We foresee the possibility of high speed internet in our future... sometime.

I lean towards calling people out. I absolutely will not lie for anyone else.

I tend to call people out.  I'm not a fan of covering people's disingenuousness.
