[ - ] I posted a while ago about hosting my husband's midwestern family for thanksgiving. It's hour four and they've already put down the fact that I ordered food...well fuck you. Also, "I don't know how you live in such a small space for SO much money! This is why (home state) is so great! You get so much space." We have 3,300 square feet, so it's not like we're stuffing them into a tiny box. Ughh... not drunk enough for this. 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Affirmative action was set up to justifiably help families impacted by slavery. But in a rush to get black faces, HYP instead is importing blacks directly from Africa to fill the affirmative action slots. This badly hurts black americans, and they are starting to protest against HYP. [ Reply | More ]

be cordial and treat him like a roommate. be constantly gone from the house and develop your own hobbies. if he loves you he will miss you and be hurt. If he doesn't love you then he won't care and there's nothing you can do to emotionally hurt him anyway, and on the bright side you will have developed new hobbies [ Reply | More ]

Good response. This is exactly what I am doing, not to hurt my husband but to find something for myself outside of a difficult marriage. Consistently being cordial is helpful as well. Replaces resentment and anger. [ Reply | More ]

Bear the children of a large, well-hung Negro. Don't say anything until you're giving birth to a mulatto. When your husband is reeling in shock, tell him he should get checked for AIDS. [ Reply | More ]

I have had a perfect, relaxing time the last two days and just decided to not bother with horrible stressful cooking this year. DH is getting Indian take out. We have no family here and I don’t feel like pretending. This is a family holiday and it’s just us, no other family members. [ Reply | More ]
