[ - ] My SIL is hosting Thanksgiving this year. It rotates all the time. When I called her to let her know we'd be coming, I asked if there was anything I could bring. SHe said, she couldn't think of anything, but she would let me know. Tonight she emails and asks me to bring a very specific dessert with an ingredient I am allergic to and mashed potatoes. I've already purchased wine and some very expensive chocolates to bring. Can I say no? Or just try to get it delivered from somewhere near her?? Does that exist in the suburbs? 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

She's annoying for sure. I hate it when people make demands at the last minute. But can you keep the wine and chocolate for a different occasion and humor her?

I am shocked that people would not have asked "can we bring anything?". It is your problem you didn't take them up on it beforehand. The only thing I can think of now is reaching out to a few friends and saying "Oh man so I am a bit in over my head! I did not realize this would be so much work! Is there any way you'd be willing to bring a sweet potato dish" or wahtever else you can pass on to others. [ Reply | More ]

Get an invoice book. Keep track of how many glasses of wine they drink each and charge $5.99 for a 4 oz pour, but in the name of Thanksgiving generosity and all, you should consider the meal an all you can eat special for $9.99 per person. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My aunt, who raised me, is looking down on me because my engagement ring is not a diamond. She has professed that her friends will think it is weird, as she has told them so much about my fiancé. She even asked if something was wrong. It is an emerald, and a beautiful one at that, for god's sake. They are making me feel like the outsider, like my worth is based off of my fiancé and apparently if he doesn't have money I'm still her castaway? 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

but she does it while smiling and has quite a few people convinced she is a feminist doing the best she can in a corrupt system. Which may also be true. The girls who come to her after rape feel like she is their friend. If i were 18 and traumatized I would look for the easiest way out, too. When I grew up however I would see I had been cheated out of justice and how this system enables sociopaths and predators. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I know UB is anti Christian so take this story for what it is. This morning on the train I noted an old Hispanic man reading the bible. He was obviously poor. An African American woman sat down on the seat next to him. She was also obviously poor, or perhaps LMC at best. She noticed him reading the bible and they struck up a conversation -- about their respective churches, their favorite scripture passages, their lives and the plan God had for them. It was just so apparent to me how much comfort each of them got from their faith. A few stops later, the woman left, but before she did she told the man to have a "blessed" day. I know UB is secular (or Jewish) and loves to look down on "ignorant" Christian who believe in "a fairy tale", but in your contempt you miss the beauty and grace that many Christians derive from our faith. 22 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Op - these two people faced more adversity in a week than most of UB faces in a year. I heard in 5 minutes problems about money, health, relationships, family, jobs.
