You'll wonder when you see this bizarre pic if anyone survived. I have good news for you.

Ex-girlfriend. Or soon to be.

This is a really bizarre story. A 46-yo woman is accused of stalking & bullying three teen boys & their families, friends, & others connected with them, for years. This includes not only direct harassment, but also defaming them to others & impersonating them on-line to get them in trouble. They actually had their lives ruined by these activities. A lot of details are not given, but it sounds like a girl who was close to the suspect (daughter or niece?) was romantically involved with the boys & the adult woman retaliated against them. The girl is referred to as “underage” & a “co-conspirator,” so did she actually sic the adult on her past bf’s, or did she go along with the bullying once it started? No mention of charges against her.

If Mama or Auntie (if that’s the case) did all this, it sounds like ASPD & she needs to get serious mental help as well as time in prison, because this behavior is definitely both criminal & sick. And the young girl who was her “co-conspirator” needs to get straightened out too, because she was taught some terrible attitudes & activities that she needs to unlearn before she has to live & act like an adult.

Here is what some people do out of love.

It isn’t enough for smitten parents-to-be (or is it often the doting grandma with the “rabies”?) to invite everyone over for cake & ice cream for The Reveal. This time it was 80 lbs of explosive in a quarry, cuz the family thought that was the safest place... but the blast was heard for miles, some people thought it was an earthquake, & at least one reported a cracked house foundation. At least no one died. Other such absurdities have ended with a plane crash in Texas, another recently in Mexico that was fatal, explosions that have killed people, a huge wildfire in Arizona where the father was a Border Patrol agent who you'd think would be more safety-aware, & a more recent wildfire in California.

Couple has a fairy-tale love story where they met in high school but were reunited 30 years later, by divine intervention they said. They plan their wedding at their “dream home and estate” which has 9BR, 15 BA, a movie theater, ballroom, bowling lanes, tennis court, gardens, waterfall, & “resort-style pool.” They send invitations calling themselves the Royal Couple & invite guests to the ceremony, “Red Carpet Happy Hour,” & a reception lasting until 2;30 a.m., then brunch the next day with live music. On the big day, the groom & the vendors arrive at the mansion to set up… so guess what?

Everyone knows that Hitchcock movie, right? One of my favorites, & I have a hard copy & watch it now & then when things are slow around here.

And this is why (for one example) parents are advised to supervise their kids' computer use, to know what sites they are visiting, who they are in contact with.

I guess all's well that ends well, even if the family is stuck with all that sugar. It's understandable that Amazon won't take it back, because food items out of their control, there's no such thing as excessive caution.

Did you know that a goldfish's size is limited by the volume of water they live in? The little fish in your home aquarium stay small because their habitat isn't big enough for them to grow much larger. The carp that you see in ponds in Japanese gardens are related to pet goldfish but are raised to be bigger. If you give them unlimited space, this is what might happen.

A dog was left in a car at Walt Disney World for hours while the owner had a fun afternoon. A passerby heard the dog barking at 5:00 p.m., saw an empty bowl & a parking receipt for 11:48 a.m., & called 911. Sheriff’s and fire personnel got the dog out & gave it water, & estimated it could have survived just one more hour confined in the car.

And now read this:
Quote
After the dog was removed from the vehicle with the help of the Reedy Creek Fire Department, the owner was located in the park. The dog was returned to the owner, who left the park. No charges were filed."
 
WHAT ? ? ? ? When that poor creature ends up dead from some other abuse, the Orange County, Florida sheriff's office will have its death on their hands.

This is what happens when an 8-year-old child is more sensible & responsible than someone who is supposed to be her parent. Child tries to stop DUI mother, mother looks right at the kid & does WHAT? Bystander tries to intervene, & what happens? 😬 😬 😬

We know restaurant employees are having a tough time with entitled or short-tempered customers during the pandemic, but this one is over the top. Sheesh. 😣  I think this guy's future in the food service business is burned to a crisp, unless he behaves well enough to get assigned to the prison kitchen.

Maybe they should keep him in the pantry or prep section or just have him washing dishes, far away from the deep fryers. ::)

Something I've noticed the last few months is as the employment crisis steepens--that is, it's harder and harder for employers to find good workers, particularly in lower-skill jobs like fast food--the quality of service has plummeted. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and that includes hiring and keeping on any warm body that will actually show up. I've seen this at all levels, but most especially at fast food, or phone/internet customer service. Just really horrible service.

It makes me think hard about how entitled and undisciplined we have become as a people, and how that is contributing substantially to the tribulations of the last days.
When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we're brave enough to see it
If only we're brave enough to be it
