    I'm not a hop fan either. The other one that I got on this trip was Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate stout which might be the richest, most flavorful beer I've ever tasted.

    Today's rant.

    I don't think I can be around all my in laws at the same time anymore.

    Every goddamn dinner it's the same conversation.

    For background, Husband has a degree, and $40,000 in student loan debt. He couldn't find a job in his field (pathology assistant), so he got his old job at Coca Cola back (which is where his dad worked for like 30 years). BUT, his job pays $15 an hour, has really good health insurance, paid sick days, paid vacation, basically all the things he wouldn't have if he worked at a lab somewhere for $10 an hour, which is all he can find with the current job market.

    So every family dinner, his dad, his step mom (who's a lawyer) and his grandparents all ride his ass about not having a job that would require his degree. Then ride his ass about not applying for a masters program, and taking out more loans (so at least another $50,000 in loan debt).... even though he already applied to all the schools that he could continue his education through (they didn't accept him, which lead to him saying fuck it and working for Coke).

    So of course I stuck up for him. Off the top of my head I know at least 10 people with degrees who said fuck it and do other work. Like my pal with a masters degree who washes dishes. Or his friend with a degree who's some kind of manager for H&M (with 6 weeks of vacation a year, gets to travel to set up new stores, benefits, and makes $25 an hour). Or my cousin with an art degree who works at a restaurant. Or my friend who "followed her dreams", got a zoology degree, can't do shit with it, and is now working herself into the ground to get into an accelerated nursing program because she doesn't want to go back into retail.

    Seriously old people. The shit we got fed all through elementary "middle and high school about getting a degree and getting a high paying job just doesn't apply anymore. The market is flooded, and any high paying jobs that require an education are either not available, or have been broken down into lower paying jobs with less educational requirements.

    And of course they didn't listen. Then went on about how our plan for me to get my vet tech certification, get a job, and then husband going back to school after that if he wants to "just isn't feasible and would take too long". Really? 3-4 years is "too long"?! So we can pay our fucking bills, car payment, property tax, save money and keep the animals alive rather than live off my part time job and ramen and whatever is leftover from his student loans?! OH AND FIX OUR FUCKING ROOF?! We're 26 for fucks sake! We have YEARS AND YEARS. Oh, and we both really like having health insurance, especially considering the rotting wisdom tooth stuck in my jaw, manface's therapy, and my messed up shoulder which I'm sure will separate itself any day now.

    Then his senile grandpa kept calling me "Indian Princess" INSTEAD OF MY FUCKING NAME.

    Obviously I flipped the fuck out, and sat outside chain smoking until it was time to go.

    Went to the ATM and it stole my money. Now I have to go through a big song and dance to get it back and until then I'm pretty broke. FML

    I've been waiting to post about this here but now seems the appropriate time. On Friday I had to assist my roommate for the third time, in the past...hmm...5 months? break up a fight between his 2 dogs because he can't do it himself, including giving him explicit directions. Except this time, I was in a towel. By the time all was said and done, I had to drop my towel and flash everyone driving by because he couldn't hold onto their collars or properly use a breakstick and I had to do everything by myself. I also had to clean up both dogs because he made a production out of the small puncture he got before I made my way out there (before I stepped out of the shower and happened to hear the familiar noises.)

    Really at the end of my rope with his BS, but I have to stop now because the forum will sign me out in the time it takes me to finish griping about all the reasons he is an unfit dog owner

    The moment where your bf's 16 year old daughter LOOKS as old as you are... And older than you.... Sooo... -__-

    Haha, damn. I sort of understand... People think that my boyfriend is my older brother. :/ I have a baby face and he's 7 years older with grey hair...

    I'm really.... Not sure if this should be part of the Rant thread or part of the Good thread... But right now it's a rant. My bf is also older than me and this bothers me. I could also never tell him about it :lol:

    Lol! I think it would be more for the good thread if it were the men posting. :P

    Lol!! No way!! I mean, his gf looks the same age as his daughter.. I feel like she would have to hate me by default :(

    As long as you aren't actually near the same age, lol! I can't handle when people have significant others that are the same age as their kids. My friend's in that boat with her dad right now.

    Maybe my boyfriend's just a weirdo, but he's stoked for when he's middle aged and I still look 20. Hahaha.

    My bf also loves it... But sometimes, like now, it bothers ME.. I mean he's always like "Look at me, I've got this young, hot thing while all these other guys have fat old chicks." He loves it..

    How old are you vs your bf?
