    My grandma flew back to Virginia from San Francisco rather than ride back to Washington (state) with us and fly out of Seattle; My parents may have in fact taken turns driving and drove all the way through rather stopping at a hotel on the way back...

    My mom told me that we likely drove to California because we didn't want to put the dog in the kennel and brought her with us; We have NEVER brought any of our dogs on an airplane (and I honestly don't think I've been on an airplane since before we got Mandy); Also, in case anybody forgot...

    She's not garbage, she has mental severe mental problems and needs help that I can't give her. I've known her since 2009 and briefly dated her in late 2009-early 2010; She was kinda whacko then...

    We drifted apart and I hadn't seen her since the end of 2012 when she contacted me like a month ago wanting to try dating again; She'd just been kicked out of a house in the Poconos where she's been living with some friends.

    I figured she's kinda cute and wants to try it again so I we started dating. We went to car shows and stuff, and I even managed to get her into bed once during our 3-week courtship (to be honest, she wanted sex more than I did, and this shoulda been another red flag).

    She started showing her true colors after she threw an empty soda can out of my truck while I was driving her home for a date; I understandably got annoyed at her for littering, and I got a bit uppity. She pulled the "I have PTSD/Don't yell at me" card and kinda started a getting a bit aggressive; Her excuse was that "there's nobody around"...

    I was able to make it clear that she wouldn't be riding in my truck anymore if she continued to do shit like that. She agreed, but this was the second of three times where I kinda snapped at her because she either did something stupid that warranted snapping at or started giving me an attitude because she didn't like something I did.

    So, we decided not even a week ago to just be friends; Yesterday morning at barely past 8am, she sent me a link to something she found on Facebook Marketplace. I was barely awake and didn't respond; She didn't contact me the rest of the day. I realized that evening that all of her recent likes of my posts had disappeared and then I discovered I could let message her or find her profile, which means she blocked me on Facebook; She also blocked my number so I can't call her.

    So, as I told John, it's like the garbage taking itself out; I am not calling her garbage though...

    @ABA180

    She has bipolar, and she's also on the autism spectrum, and the combination of those two can obviously lead to serious issues; I have Aspergers and anxiety, but I don't have bipolar. To put it simply, my issues didn't prevent me from getting a concealed carry permit; This girl has been institutionalized before (though voluntarily) and I would not want her around a firearm.

    This girl claims that some truly awful shit has happened to her between 2009 and 2015 (including before I started dating her the first time); I've talked to my own therapist and some other trusted confidants, and I believe she's stretching the truth with a couple of those stories, but I really feel for her and hope she gets help.

    She's also very immature and, as stated above, resorts to playing the "I have PTSD and you can't yell at me" card whenever she is called out for doing something stupid (like tossing a soda can out the window of her boyfriend's Tacoma at 50 MPH) or just being constructively criticized.

    She has a very dysfunctional family as well, but for lack of a better way of describing her...

    Even if I had Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos money and could afford a kid at this point in my life, this is the last woman on earth I would want carrying my child; She has diabetes, she has a few other health problems, she's mentally ill, she's lazy, and she's immature. I've got my issues, but I've got a job and I didn't end up with diabetes so bad that I lost a toe...

    I found this sitting curbside in my girlfriend's neighborhood and it seemed to have a "free" vibe rather than a "ready for the landfill" vibe...

    It is a Frigid box fan, likely from the 1960s or 1970s; Box fans of today just can't hold a candle to this thing in terms of quality. However, there's no sign of life in this old bastard whatsoever; I'm thinking (hoping) that it's a simple fix so I can get it running again instead of trying to get what I can for it at the scrapyard...

    @shakerhood
    @Taco critter

    So I went to the UPS located in the same shopping center as the bagel place where I flattened the wheelchair ramp (I was attempting to return the taillight guards that don't fit); Guess what? The clearly damaged ramp that I drove over with my truck is still there and in use, in the same spot!

    :rofl:

    The owner of the bagel shop has my name and phone number, and she never got back to me, so I don't know what's up with that...
