Read the rules here. I think that will help answer your questions. I think I would pay extra attention to Rule 2, if I were you.

Ok. Stop. No more complaining about insults in this thread. Syd, if you really have a problem please PM one of the mods and we will take care of it in one way or another. Complaining in this way is simply adding fuel to the fire and will not help. And you simply must stop calling people names and lashing out. Ignore them, if anything.

I have a bit of a dilemma. Our family is trying to come up with a present for my neice who is turning 18 soon.

The only problem is, she's....useless, in the nicest term possible. The only things she does are

1. live on the phone
2. whine about 'tendonitis' from her job (more from being on the phone)
3. complain about the Two chores she does in the household (laundry for two and microwaving some dinner Once in a rare while...maybe after watching the Food network.)

It's so hard, cuz all she wants are either gift cards or money. For a while she wanted to get her driver's license (mostly cuz a boyfriend mentioned it, I think), but now she doesnt want to do much of anything. She barely works at her job, and she claims to have physical problems whenever she's there (She can't even push carts for crying out loud!).

I love my neice, but dammit, she's totally braindead in the terms of Reality. she lives for tabloids, gossip and celebrity ********. I honestly don't see her making anything of her life at this point.

Gah, I'm supposed to be focusing on her birthday right now, but all this stuff going on right now is driving me friggen nuts. Can anyone give me some Worthwhile ideas for her birthday? Nothing nasty, if you please.... her mentality's something more of a demented middle schooler.

She's still a minor? Well there's still a WHOLE LOT of time for her to wake up. I'd say take action NOW, as it's probably the best time to start.

What's the problem, then? If that's what she wants, get her that.

In a nutshell:

You post, no one understands, they ask, you retort in obnoxious fashion, you get insulted, you insult back, things snowball, you get warned.

You want your status back? Hold thy tongue.. or keyboard, rather. If people react to you in a way you don't like, just restrain yourself. If it bugs you that much, do what Jo said: PM one of the moderators and they'll take it from there. Keep that up for about a month or so and you'll get a yellow box instead of two orange ones. Then, after another amount of time, you'll see those silver stars again.

Okay, dude?

i'm so glad the long time remained misunderstanding is today simplely explained off so finely,thank y KROW.

actually,i've been thinking about this already,but for some part i got a different opinion from y.y kno,i do really don't s much difficulties in my posts,but the fact is thoes grumbled they never asked.and at this point i intend to present y a entire course of asking from my view:what do y mean by saying [quote],[quote],[quote],or [quote]--what the heck is that? or the like.but instead of doing that correctly,what do they usually do to express their confusion about my posts?"shut up!!","wtf r y doing?!","it's unintelligible!" now may i ask y how on earth could y kno what r their problems with what y write and what's wrong with yr posts according to thoes obscure responses?and all the ironies is here i'm the one that actually don't get a damn clue,not them.ox0
and to expand on that point,either had i asked some of them where bothered them in my posts or already brought out that point of mine in the past threads,i'm so here to repeat my only challenge:do i really deserve all the punishments fell on me up to now?
i'd better make it brief a litttle or i'm gonna get accused of digressing again.

Hey, the only reason I have any problems with you is the fact that for some reason you think that I'm out to get you banned or something, which is not the case. At all. As for the "do I really deserve all the punishments" thing...well, that's not up to me to say. I'm not a judge, I'm not a god, and I'm not a mod. All I know is that most of your 'punishments' revolves around fights that stemmed from giant misunderstandings, and about 75% of the time we can barely make out what you are saying which causes said misunderstandings. That's it.

For the present, definitely go with a gift card. How much is up to you. Maybe perfume? Make-up, earrings (if she has her ears pierced), a watch, shoes, a handbag, a biography about her favorite celebrity...things like that. If you need any more suggestions, I'll be happy to name off a few more.

And don't worry about her mentality. Either she was born that way, or she just needs a year or two to grow up. Give her time...she should come right in the end.

Perhaps it's just me, but I sense that you enjoy confusing people and wasting their time. From that lengthy post, the only necessary idea is that you need people to specify what they don't understand from your posts. That's why people are running low on patience for you. You had one point to make, and you turned it into a poorly-worded essay.

For the record, I DID tell him to shorten his posts. I wish he'd follow that advice...

Syd, if you would just type readable words, and maybe tone down the reactivity level, there'd be no problem.

EXECTLYYYY*point at*That's what I mean!That was what I mean!Thank you gobo,I feel much better now.XDDDDDDDDD

For that part you mentioned,I decided that I won't blame anyone.You know I may not be very accustomed to give my point directly,'un I know the most western people usually do,but that's just the way I am,who basically feel kinda difficult to express opinions directly,I can't change that,I was born that way,it's just in my blood,inheritance.I don't know whether does it sounds crazy to you,but sometimes I really find it a little hard to give my point(uh...what's my point now...?),'un sometimes I find i've missed the point until I finish my whole speech.I think perhaps many people have the same problem as the latter one,but the difference is I'm the sorta do it more frequently than them.Maybe that's why they don't get it,I think.

Why is it that some people have the pure ability to hurt you... And they are always the ones you care for most. Why can't this person say, upon knowing you are upset, that they're sorry?

Why can't I say things right over IM and end up sounding like a bad person. Why do I ruin things.

Why have I been crying for a half hour and unable to stop.




And it's at these times that I hate what my life has become. Endless medical bills with no results. Feeling crappy every day of my life. Being no fun because of it. Ruining plans, talks that revolve around my health for the day or hour or minute...

You're harder on yourself than I am on myself. Were I constantly stressed with medical crap like you are, I would make no apology for discussing it. If you want to stop making that the main idea of all your conversations, ask people to help keep your mind off of it for that reason. You're allowed to do that. You're allowed to feel bad too. Just quit beating yourself up for it. It's distressing to others... even moreso than the reasons you keep worrying about. Now, go watch some House.

Gobo's advise brought to you by the Great Trash Heap.


Just kidding, Gobo's got a point. Don't apologise for feeling lousy. and if you need to take your mind off it that's definatlly what friends are for.

Yeah. Except he's my only RL friend.

And it was over IM, so we all know how that goes. And I never seem to say things or explain things right. I look like the bad guy. I look like the unwantable person.

I hate that I ruin my chances with him so much. I seem to do everything wrong. I wasn't like this before. He liked so many things about me that I think he thinks the opposite of me now.

I am so sorry for being me sometimes.

And, that's the problem. You can't change the past, but the future will only get worse if you dwell on it.
