That's awful, surely it wouldn't have been hard for them to check and be sure that hospital COULD in fact help you.

My sympathy... My only ER visit involved terrible pain and had to wait a while. Not something I'd want to repeat. Hope the second place was/is able to help.

Not even once as in "I wouldn't want to do that even once".

I've suffered my fair share of waits.

Man, even when I was the only person in the ER during my Swimmer's Ear Infection From Hell, I had to wait. And that was at the peak of pain.

My Mac's sensitivity to power cuts grinds my gears. I only slightly moved it back and apparently the wire must have been loose, off it goes and..... it's broken again.

I'm having less issues with my mac itself, but my iPad wasn't cooperating with some homework. By some miracle, the instructor extended the date so we could work on it over the weekend, so that's good at least.

We were putting Dad back in his bed yesterday and when I went to lift his feet so Mom could lower him back down, he lashed out with his left foot and almost kicked me in the face! I had an urge to just hit him back and next time he tries that, I will.

I ... still have no words.

What the hell happened to the Sonic The Hedgehog franchise? I used to REALLY be invested in it, but now ... I'm just filled with disappointment.

Pathetic. Just pathetic.

I had to go to A&E when I was sixteen because of an extremely deep cut and we were waiting for several hours. Still, as it was in the middle of the swine flu epidemic my sister and I spent time scaring people by faking the symptoms and discussing our fictitious recent holiday in Mexico.

just out of curiosity..

how many husbands on your facebook feed are taller than the girl that they marry, AND have a decent beard on them?

women these days definitely seem to have a type. and it seems like everytime I see a married couple photo, the guy always looks the same.

Asperger's Issues:
When the only friends you have who share your special interest, found by enormous strokes of luck, need to take a break/have long-term business in their lives and then you're left alone with that special interest with no one to enjoy it with...again. Which is worse when they're online friends.

It sounds petty and selfish I know. But I pretty much spent most of my childhood with "special interests" that none of my peers shared, which would make me a "target". Which obviously made things worse.

Wait, are you seriously hating on average height men with beards?

Why do men without girfriends/so's seem to focus on the most shallow girls they can find and hold them up as the "typical" girl?

I've dated tall guys, short guys, fat guys, thin guys, nerds, atheletes, rich guys, poor guys, different races, all types.

You guys are chasing the wrong girls.

Height and looks should only be a portion of what you care about. What you need to focus on is whether you treat them right and they do the same for you and if you have something in common with them. See if you have a rapport with them and go from there. I just get so sick of people who always go for looks and feel that if they date someone who is taller or shorter than them that it's a bad thing. My ex was taller than me and I didn't care about that in the slightest. All I cared about was that we had a good rapport and interacted just fine together.

Sometimes you have to focus on personality rather than appearance.

That's just one of the many problems with "nice guys". They think that because they're simply nice, they deserve the cream of the crop.

I have dated women taller than me. It's really not all that difficult.

Oh yeah, I know. Always punching above their weight class. They always think the deserve 10/10 girls but poo poo an average girl, who would be more likely to date them.


.....if she could get by the nasty personality. Most "nice guys" are the most egotistical self important jerks I've ever met.
