[ - ] UBers with a better vocabulary than me: I need help coming up with one word to describe my religious POV. I care about people as much as I do this planet and all the other species here, and that's about it. I don't spend time or effort contemplating what happened before me, what might happen after me, and the only interest I have in religious services and structures is the culture and art. What am I? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

"I suppose I'm an agnostic because of course the circle of the things I do know is vastly smaller than the things I don't know about out there in the darkness somewhere maybe there is a God. But among all the things I do know in this world I see no evidence of a God whatsoever and everybody who claims to know there is a God seems to use that as an excuse for exercising power over other people, and historically as we know from looking at the history in Europe alone that's involved persecution, massacre, slaughter on an industrial scale, it's a shocking prospect."

[ - ] Black attorney here. Want to hear about how racism is still alive in NYC? I walkes back to the parking lot behind the courthouse to pick up my car and the street was partially closed due to a huge truck parked at the corner w workers on ladders trimming down tree branches off 3 trees on 1 side of the block. The parking garage is in the middle of the block and the other side was clear. White NYPD officer sees me walking across the street toward parking lot and stops me at corner, tells me to walk around the block due to safety even though the side of the street I was on was clear. I tell him the garage is literally 5 steps from the corner where we are both standing, but he waves his hand at me and tells me to walk down the parallel street and all the way around to reach the garage on the other side. Fine. I make the 6-10 min walk around and when I get to the parking lot, i look down the street and see the same officer standing in the same spot letting 3 women and men through. The truck is still trimming on the other side and no danger of ANY branches falling. I tell the other parking lot customers that the officer told me to walk around the block because the street wasnt “safe to walk down due to the tree cutting” and they looked shocked. Parking attendant just looked at the cop and said “wow what a jerk”. 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] My DCs really enjoy playing with their cousins but we rarely see them as SIL, DH’s sister is such a pill. She’s a really immature, draining and negative person. Her poor husband is a saint and she yells at him constantly. It’s really draining to be around them but if she comes on her own with DCs then at least there’s less conflict. MIL and SIL are really close and usually if we invite SIL then she invites MIL to join and all of a sudden a short visit with cousins becomes a week of family conflict. WWYD? Every summer I want to invite them and if we do or we don’t we end up regretting it. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My dad is probably rolling in his grave as I type this (changing the oil was the first car repair he taught me, and he'd call to make sure I was changing oil regularly--he actually wanted me to keep a written log, but I shut that down fast :) Check your owner's manual for your car (although my dealer was the one who told me it's now about 7-10,000 miles).

I'm a complete introvert, and I had to learn how to be social early on. Although I dread this type of situation, just remember that virtually everybody likes to talk about themselves to a person who seems genuinely interested. So, as above poster said, ask about summer plans, whether they're from the area, where they grew up, etc. I hold off on asking about spouses, kids or work until I get a better feel for the person, although I'll do it if it seems to be appropriate in the conversation.
