AfD must be the "Alternative for Germany" party my German friend talks about lol. She says they are far-right extremists or something, and that she is afraid of their influence growing. Sometimes I think she may be exaggerating but I don't have enough information to give an opinion. I am ideologically opposed to the right, so my opinion about this kind of thing isn't impartial either.

Ah yeah I've seen in the news they gained ground and are now the third largest party I think?

Not worried though. I trust Merkel with the free world so I'm pretty sure she'll manage her country well.

Hate to tell you, but so far, Merkel has made exactly one decision by herself that I know of, and that was a very backwards and damaging decision (which I prefer to keep vague because my choice of words could offend some people). Otherwise, she pretty much just nods and agrees with whoever is currently speaking. That said, all the potentially big parties are full of issues. I really wish the Pirates had a chance. :/

I may have already mentioned this, but my house gets raided by ants every summer. This year was no exception. The worst of it ended a while ago, but there's recently been a resurgence in one of the bathrooms. I suspect they actually have a colony somewhere inside the house's walls. The reason for said resurgence may finally have surfaced: termites. A while ago, I spotted a bunch of strange winged insects, larger than the ants, but similar in shape, hanging around in the bathroom. I suspected at first that they might have been young drones or queens that had just left the pupa stage. My image searches failed to find any ants that looked like them, though. Eventually, my mom got a look at one and said they might be termites. Sure enough, when I did an image search for termite queens, I found a picture of some insects that looked exactly like the ones I saw in the bathroom, meaning my house might have termites and need to be fumigated. It's still only a possibility, though. All of the termites I saw had wings and were colored in a way that is exclusive to kings and queens. This means there might not actually be a colony in the house yet. One can only hope that it stays that way...

And then the head of the AFD, Petry, decided that now that she has a seat in parlament, she wants to abdicate and turn into a Fraktionslose. You know, I'm thinking if more people do that, the AFD's number in seats will decrease and their influence will lower... So, still a dick move she did. But if it means less AFD having a say in matters, I'm fine with it.

Because listening to him/talking to him is the most frustrating thing that exists. It is even worse than watching TV.

See, the problem is, my family will never understand me. They will live and die, without knowing 1/4 of who I am. I can understand who they are, just by looking at them. I know more about them than they will ever know about me. My father doesn't get life, he only sees everything at surface level. The person he thinks is me, isn't really "me". Or it is just a tiny fraction of "me". This is why it is useless trying to communicate with him. It is fruitless. It is like talking to someone who speaks a language you can understand, but they can't understand yours.

To be honest, I was pretty annoyed, and probably overestimated the conflicts I have with my family. I still love them.

Perhaps it is my fault. I don't know. I don't want to sound whiny, but I feel cronically misunderstood by people. It is frustrating. Maybe there are one or two people who get me on a deeper level, but nobody else besides them. It is a problem I have, and I'm trying to work on it. I wish I could be someone else at times.

Hmm so it's that you think you know them pretty well but that they don't know you and only understand things on a surface level? Plus you think they never will be able to understand you properly?

What makes you think they'll never learn to understand you?

Little girl? ...Juniper?

Lately my bathroom paranoia has really been on edge. I've been looking around carefully for any critters- rats, lizards, bigs, and so on. Spiders are fine as long as they aren't nearby. I guess I really dislike the idea of being so close to pests like that. That's why I try and clean everything before I leave. It's very tiring, though.

@Pierre Because trying to communicate with them, always leads nowhere. They never get what I am trying to say.

My worst relationship is actually with my father. To him, I'm just this dramatic/out of reality/impulsive person, and everything I ever do or say is justified by the fact that I am "dramatic". He doesn't try to understand emotions. He is extremely indifferent to everything, dry, and passive towards life. He is the most emotionless person I know. I've never seen him pissed off, very sad, or very happy. Just this endless sea of indifference. How do you even deal with someone like that?

@Student, you remind of myself when I was younger.. Nowadays I laugh at my past attempts to be more "independent", but I totally understand the feeling of being annoyed at people who want to control you/tell you what to do. I think the most annoying thing, is when somebody wants to impose power on you without a good reason. "You have to obey me because I'm your mother/father, doesn't matter if what I say doesn't make sense". This kind of thing pissed me off a lot.

Yeah it sounds like you believe you have a far greater grasp of emotions than he does. Could be a generational thing, I know my parents have often been a bit emotionally dulled and tried to scold me when I've became frustrated at things before. So have you never been able to talk to your Dad and be understood? And that's the same with the rest of your family?

@Pierre I don't think it is a generation thing. Well, this could explain a part of it, but I think it is mostly a "his" thing. Like, his personality. I've never met another person like this in my whole life, no matter the age.

Nah. My relationship with the rest of my family is not as bad as it is with my father, tbh, but it isn't good either. I've always been the "weirdo", the most misbehaved/troublesome kid in my family, etc. I don't think I'll be ever fully appreciated for who I am by my family, but I just learned how to deal with it as I got older. It is something out of my control, and I can't let my self-esteem be affected by this anymore.

So you think its more something innate to your dad? How does the rest of the family work with him?

Also its good that you aren't allowing your family to tackle your self esteem but I doubt it will be easy. We're often conditioned to want to please our parents and family early on in life and those chains are hard to break.

I must confess I acted caustic and had a couple of bad mood swings around somebody who has been terribly helpful/generous to me, and I don’t think I’m good enough to say “I’m sorry”. Anyway this person definitely doesn’t deserve this treatment. I feel kind of guilty around innocent/pure types of people because I’m not like them, and will never be. I feel almost monstrous around them. I don’t like to deal with this guilty conscience, etc.

I love when customers yell at me for things beyond my control. I don't control prices. I don't control sales. All I do is ring up your purchases and send you on your merry way. I got yelled at by a customer because she was accused of stealing and we went to the LP office to look at the cameras and sure enough... she walked out with two bags that had items she didn't pay for. As per her, the "cameras are wrong". After that coworkers got snippy because I shut my light off. Uh... it's time for me to go home. I guarantee when it's your turn, you'd do the same. Yes, I see lines, but I'm scheduled for a certain amount of time and that's how long I intend to stay UNLESS I'm asked by a higher up if I want to stay.
I hate the first two weeks of the month. Customers are too ignorant and messy. They bring 2-3 carts and then end up having me void out half of the purchase because they
"didn't want to spend too much". You have a phone... use the calculator. FFS!

The problem with this kind of subject is that a lot of people go to short-sighted and fanatic POVs very easily. Some people are “everything a man ever does is evil and oppressive in nature” and some people (like this woman) are “oooh poor men, all those anti-abuse laws are harming men”.

Anyway, f*** this woman. She’s likely a very unintelligent person, or ill-intentioned. Maybe both.

Weinstein is a huge PoS, but as I said before, what makes me concerned is that I think he is being bashed because he was found out. There are hundreds of rich people like him we don’t know of. :shoe:

Haha reading that article and they have a point about something:

A lot of French cultural stereotypes are going to get treated much harsher in a western culture that strongly denounces sexual harassment.

Made me think of Pepe Le Pew. Seduction and romance they argue are French cultural values but perhaps they'll need to rethink where their stance lies and also whether any of the sexual harassment they talk about qualifies as 'romantic'.

Pepe Le Pew is basically the face of several generations worth of sexual harassment. He's basically the first one most kids have seen. Because, haha, how funny. :will: The cat keeps getting mistaken for a skunk like him, so he holds her and wants to kiss her and sweet-talks her and... Oh my God. :beef:

I think what offends me the most is how she said that people should have a right to get persistent if their initial flirting is rejected. Uh. No. If someone makes it perfectly clear (let's say preferably with very basic, direct words - just so nobody can pull the excuse of 'well, your bodylanguage was different') that they do not want to flirt with you, and do not want you to continue flirting with them... well, then you stop. End of story.
One No should be enough.
