They laid it all out on the table over dinner. My brother-in-laws wife had been having an extended affair which had been discovered. After the admission and stunned silence at the table, my mother-in-law shoved her chair back so hard, it fell over and hit the floor. She was livid. She yelled at the adulteress at the table, screaming at her, calling her a whore and an abomination in God’s eyes. My mother-in-law went in on her in one of the ugliest tirades I’d ever seen. My sister-in-law was in tears, ran from the table, grabbed her suitcase and hid out in her car, waiting for her husband. They subsequently left (and later were subsequently divorced).
They got very drunk and I had to try to get them the mile home from the pub. This was very out of character by the way, they like a drink but would not usually get too drunk while I was there. My dad decided to walk down the middle of the road so I let go of my mother to go get him and she decided to squat and pee outside another pub. I was mortified as it was chucking out time and quite a few people saw! Why not? It’s a fun and funny app. If you’re worried about privacy put her account on private. And if you’re worried about what she’s posting make an account and follow her, she won’t post anything bad because she’ll know you could see it.
Another clear fact that has emerged is that the media panic reporting likely made the problem much, much worse. I saved many article headlines from March and April, and they gave the impression that Covid 19 was a death sentence, only disclaiming near the end of the stories that most people have only mild symptoms. People read this, and at the first sign of symptoms, many crowded into hospitals, thereby creating an instant huge infection of other patients and medical professionals that snowballed.
As an excellent recent article in the NYT times by a pulmonary ER doctor in NYC stated, most people should stay home, check their blood O2 with an inexpensive pulse/ox device, and contact their doctor. One of the key problems with Covid, as he stated, is that it can compromise the lungs without typical flu-like symptoms other than some mild breathing issues. But if alert for, the patient can do simple things like sleep on their side or stomach to let the lungs clear and recover, which is exactly what they do in the hospital, and it works very well. It is interesting to me that other than the opinion piece, the Times (or media in general) didn’t bother to report things like this in the main paper.
You say he ignores you when you ask for a favor so im guessing he does not want to give you the favor and also a text message is evidence so it can be held against him at some point should you guys fall out and worst case scenario that you start a work dispute case againt him. Maybe try ringing him instead. Myself, I am considered pretty decent at programming computers. My mother, who is now a suitably feisty 92 year old, can’t do that – even though she is a whizz at programming a VHS tape VCR to record a TV program in the future. No mean feat, that.
I have a large scar from a 3rd-degree burn on my arm that occurred when I was 9. It wasn’t the first time I cooked dinner. I was straining a large pot of spaghetti and my mother began yelling from the next room that I was pouring it wrong. I set the cauldron on the edge of the sink and tried to arrange my hand properly but the whole thing fell on me and my sweater melted on my arm. It was wonderful in a way, the small-town school sent me presents every week I was in the hospital. No one questioned the value of a girl learning to cook and I didn’t consider it abuse until I watch my 9yo son standing by a boiling cauldron of water and thought I would never suggest a child handle that!
