Who Needs Her Back?[rebelmouse-image 18360974 is_animated_gif=
My mom wants to get back into my life now after not seeing me and my sister for 5 years.
Tbh we're both happier and better off without her. But the guilt-tripping from people who don't even remotely understand our situation is making me crazy.
So, What Happens Next?[rebelmouse-image 18360975 is_animated_gif=
Last night after watching the Incredibles 2, I told this girl I've been hanging out with for a couple of months that I liked her.
The feelings weren't reciprocated and I now I have a new hobby of going through coloring books.

I like this girl, pretty sure she likes me, but I'm currently abroad for an exchange program. I'm afraid she might be over me when I come back
No Follow Through[rebelmouse-image 18350313 is_animated_gif=
A friend who has told me to my face that she was interested in a relationship with me has been leading me on for weeks. Today told me that she isn't and never was interested in me. I guess I don't blame her, but I feel pretty crushed at the moment. It's kinda put me into a depressive spiral and I've stopped taking my antidepressants because I was mostly trying to be happy for her sake.
I'm just a f_*_ing mess at the moment.

Problem Solving Like A Mother[rebelmouse-image 18360980 is_animated_gif=
I'm supposed to go to summer school tomorrow in order to fulfill a PE credit. Thing is that I live like 5 miles from the school, and they apparently don't provide busing. Both my parents work, and the only time when they can pick me up is 3 hours after the class ends, during their lunch-break. They provided busing before... why couldn't you do it this year.
EDIT: Im taking an Uber now, thanks for the advice!
No One Knows Anything Online[rebelmouse-image 18360981 is_animated_gif=
Some group of a**holes at my school created a racist social media account. They got busted for it eventually, and a couple people got maced for it. The ringleader either left the school or was expelled, but needless to say he didn't come back to school. Tarnished the reputation of our entire class.
There's also some sh-t going down with social media in the freshman class. This time it was an account posting memes about teachers at the school, and a lot of people were in on it. It was discovered eventually, and mostly turned out fine, except that our Humanities teacher was absolutely pissed about it. He's not writing college recommendations for any freshmen once they become seniors, and pretty much hates the entire class now. I've had him, and he's one of the harder teachers, so my heart goes out to their GPAs.
Good Luck, Dude[rebelmouse-image 18360982 is_animated_gif=
Gonna meet my dad for the first time in 10 years + loads of fam drama
Good Luck To You, Too[rebelmouse-image 18345825 is_animated_gif=
My girlfriend's mom doesn't want her to see any guys. She literally won't even meet me because that involves a guy in her house. She's divorced her husband and kicked my girlfriend's brother out of the house. My mom didn't know that when me and my girlfriend were hanging out with each other, it was without my girlfriend's mom knowing.
I always am honest with my parents and so I told my mom that my girlfriend's mom didn't know. Now my mom won't let me hang out with my girlfriend because her mom doesn't want us hanging out. I'm really happy with her and this is really stressful and saddening. I've always been a really good kid with great grades and sports and never breaking any rules but in about 40 minutes I'm sneaking out to see her.
Wish me luck I guess.
Freud Knew What He Was Talking About[rebelmouse-image 18349471 is_animated_gif=
Haha I just lost all of my friends because of a Freudian slip in an argument.
Got into an argument. Was having a depression induced mental breakdown. Part of a pretty broken friend group. I.E. they aren't really be able to function outside of the friend group. Said everybody in the group were sh-tty people including me and the person I was arguing with. Actually meant broken.
Saying Good-Bye Is Never Easy[rebelmouse-image 18360983 is_animated_gif=
Going from high school to college.
This is my last summer with my best friends because we're all going to different schools in the fall. We'll still be friends but it won't be the same. Also I had a realization that I won't see most of my school friends ever again and it's really bumming me out.
Again, Good Luck[rebelmouse-image 18360984 is_animated_gif=
Gonna have an intervention w my friend who's letting drugs ruin her life... wish me luck.
When What You Want Is Gone[rebelmouse-image 18360985 is_animated_gif=
already on summah break but the guy i've been crushing on on-and-off for like the past two yrs told me a week before the end of the school year that he was transferring to a boarding school out of state. he's someone i have a ton of history with and i guess him leaving isn't really drama ?? per se but i don't really know what i'm gonna do without him bc besides the fact that he's probably the person i've had the strongest feelings for, he's also one of my closest friends and i'm still kinda hung over the fact that he's not gonna be here. :/
we both just finished our freshmen year of high-school and i knew him since the start of middle school but we didn't really start talking until last year because we were both in mostly the same classes.
It Does, Thank You[rebelmouse-image 18346487 is_animated_gif=

When The People Who Are Supposed To Help Cause The Probelm[rebelmouse-image 18360986 is_animated_gif=
Teacher who's being a jerk. This is the full story if you want to read, I posted this on r/askreddit two days ago.
I was part of a two year program in grade 9 in which I took a few classes together in sequence and did a project at the end of each year. It was near the end of the year and the project was underway. We were made up of groups from years one and two of the program, so freshmen and sophomores working together. I was sick for a week and went to the teacher (lets call her Ms. Module) of the year 2 students for information about what I missed because she was in charge of the project. She told me it was on her teacher page and I thanked her and left. The next day I get a bunch of texts from sophomores and juniors that Ms. Module had complained about me by name saying I "wasn't afraid of her" and was a "disrespectful student" for not checking the website first and asking her before school. She really hurt my feelings and hurt the way my peers view me as a person. She then did it again the next year, this time telling a class of sophomores about how I was "terrible" at presenting and "got a poor grade", something which was false (I got a 92). I then noticed she set the Google Classroom we used for handing things in to automatically share every document we produced in class along with our scores on those works with a woman in Arkansas (I'm in NY) named Jodi. I asked her about it and she told me to tell nobody. I asked my friend if he saw it and she overheard me. She threatened to send me to a week of detention if I told anyone else (because she was obviously violating FERPA, NYS Ed policy, and our district's policy). The next week I took my midterm and failed (63%, lowest out of 60 students in her class). I've never gotten less than a 94 on midterms/finals/any English test. I asked to see it (she just gave me an old regents test which any English teacher could grade) because I wanted a second opinion. Apparently she throws them out after grading. Sorry that was long, I just wanted to say something.
Get It ALL Out[rebelmouse-image 18360987 is_animated_gif=
I'm seventeen, graduating high school in two weeks, and I hate my best friend.
She's the single most annoying person I know. She acts stupid on purpose so no one takes her seriously, but then blames people for not taking her seriously. She never gives proper advice when I have to talk to her about her problems, but she is constantly talking about her problems, which consist solely of "two boys like me, who do I choose."
She's extremely hypocritical, yet she doesn't realize it. There's this guy in our group of friends who likes her, and she knows that. She always invites him out to hang out with us, she shows him her Spotify playlists, and the stuff she posts on her "private" Tumblr about her emotions. Then she gets upset and thinks he's creepy for always hanging out with us, and listening to her Spotify playlists, and browsing through her Tumblr blog.
She complains about some girls in our grade jumping from guy to guy, whereas she's been in a situation where she was in a serious relationship, decided to take a break, and dated another guy for a week. Only for a week though, because she went back to her old boyfriend after that. But Guy 2 didn't like the original boyfriend, so a couple months later she wen't back to the other guy. Then she gets upset that her ex-boyfriend is unhappy with her because she thinks he left her for another girl, and that she did nothing wrong.
She's constantly trying to simultaneously become, and one-up me. If I buy an item of clothing, she'll go out and buy the same thing. If I mention I like a certain thing, she'll go out and buy it, or say that she suddenly likes that thing, even though I might've been talking about it for months. When I bring it up, she always says that she had always liked the thing, and that I was thinking too deep, even though she would never mention the thing until after I had.
She's a snitch too. Whenever I confide anything in her, it should be known that it's between us. So imagine my surprise when her boyfriend confronts me about things I told her in confidence, like who my crushes were, and what my opinions on certain people were. Sure, I might tell other people stuff she tells me, but at least I have the good sense to make sure they don't bring that up to her.
The real kicker though, is that we aren't real best friends. I never tell her anything important about my life, because I've learned my lesson. She never has any real input to conversations, because she'd rather discuss my life with the boyfriends she keeps jumping between. I've known her for ten years now, and we've never hugged, because she "doesn't like affection," even though she has no problem showing affection to the other people in our group of friends. She doesn't refer to me as her best friend, only as her "person," because she has this strange superstition that any person she refers to as her "best friend" leaves her. But that's just because the only three people she's ever referred to as her best friend were the two guys she dated, and this one girl who's a severe narcissist...
...She's likeable, but not a good best friend by any means. I can't just stop being her friend though, because her other three best friends did, and that was horrible for her self-esteem, and she already suffers from anxiety, and I refuse to "seem" like the asshole in this situation, even though I know I'm not. This September I'll be moving three hours away for University, and I won't be the one to keep this friendship going if she isn't willing to make the effort to. If we fall out, that's on her. I've dealt with this long enough.
The Family Trip Is Riding On The Line[rebelmouse-image 18360988 is_animated_gif=
Sister is an anti-vaxxer and is begging my dad for money while simultaneously trashing us on FB.
2 of my 4 friends are dating and they're in a rlly toxic relationship where one threatens to break up with the other basically every day, guilt trips, stuff like that.
Like friend one asks the rest of the group "hey should I break up w friend 2" on a weekly basis. Makes it rlly awkward. They've broken up about 2-3 times already.
We're all going on a trip in two weeks so basically we have to hope and pray that their relationship is strong enough to last until then bc if they break up the whole trip is essentially ruined.
People Break Down Which Major Historical Events Many Folks Don't Realize Happened Around The Same Time
History is fascinating, because while we're busy thinking about important events, sometimes we lose context of how long ago that event actually happened.
We might forget that two important figures in history were alive at the same time, or we might picture an event as if it happened 100 years ago instead of 20.
Remembering the context in which these events happened makes them all the more powerful.
Redditor drichm2599 asked:
"What are two historical events most people don't realize happened at about the same time?"
Diary of a Young Girl
"Anne Frank was born the same year as actor James Hong, who attended the Oscars [this year]."
Oxford May Be Older Than You Think
"Oxford University is older than the Incan Empire."
"It sounds crazy until you know that the Inca were from late medieval and early modern history, rather than ancient history."
Galileo at Harvard
"There was a six-year period in which Galileo could have taught at Harvard."
"Hitler, Stalin, Trotsky, Tito, Freud, and Archduke Franz Ferdinand all lived in Vienna in 1913."
"So a communist, a socialist, a fascist, and a monarchist walk into a bar..."
"Freud: Clearly all their thoughts dwell on their mothers."
The Guillotine Isn't So Outdated
"The last execution by guillotine in France and the release of the first 'Star Wars' movie took place in the same year (1977)."
Meanwhile, 'Toy Story 3' Was Released 13 Years Ago...
"The most recent execution by firing squad in the U.S. took place the same day 'Toy Story 3' was released in 2010."
The Samurai Address
"There was a 22-year period when Abraham Lincoln could have sent a fax to a Samurai."
"The fax machine was invented in 1843. The samurai were abolished in 1867. Abraham Lincoln died in 1865."
"Wooly mammoths were still around when the Egyptians were building the pyramids."
"Cleopatra was born closer to the moon landing than to the pyramids being built. By a lot."
"We generally do not appreciate how long the ancient Egyptian civilization was around. Narmer, Pharaoh of the First Dynasty of the Early Dynastic Period, lived over 3,200 years before Pharaoh Cleopatra VII Philopator died, ending the line of the Ptolemaic Dynasty. And there are Pharaohs before Narmer, such as Iry-Hor, a candidate for the earliest person whose name we know."
"Egyptian culture existed for over three millennia, evolving, changing, sometimes enduring massive fractures, collapses, and invasions. Either via conquest or being conquered, they had an uncanny ability to absorb the cultures of other peoples into their own, creating this mutable yet eternal cultural identity."
"The gods of Egypt were old by the time Hatshepsut sent her expedition to Punt. They were even older when Ramesses II fought the Battle of Kadesh. By the time the Roman Republic was founded, they were ancient."
"Ancient Egypt existed for a really f**king long time."
The Dinosaur Timeline
"One that trips me out is that T-rexes are closer to being alive with us than they would be to the Stegosaurus."
“Tyrannosaurus lived 68 - 66 million years ago, and Stegosaurus lived 155 - 145 million years ago. That puts the gap between those two, 77 million years and 66 million years between the Tyrannosaurus and us.”
"Insane, as I always think of dinosaurs being around in the same basic time period."
"Joe Biden was alive when Nikola Tesla died."
"The founding of the capital of the Aztec civilization in Tenochtitlan (which would become the foundation for Mexico City a few centuries later) and the beginning of the 100 Years War over in Europe are only about a decade apart (~1325 vs. ~1338)."
"In fact, the major civilizations of the Americas that were ultimately taken down by European conquests and diseases all roughly rose and fell over the course of the 11th through 16th centuries."
"I always find it funny if someone refers to the Incan, Mayan, or Aztec civilizations with words like 'ancient', considering they rose and fell during the same periods as the Mongolian and Ottoman empires, and we don't typically call those ancient."
The Summer of '69
"In 1969 in August Hurricane Camille hit the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico, the rain storm at Woodstock was part of that storm, and Manson’s group had just gone on the murder spree. The US was as crazy as ever."
"The iconic cover photo of the Beatles' 'Abbey Road' album was taken on the same day as the Manson murders."
Take Me Out to the Ballgame
"Fenway Park opened the same week that the Titanic sunk."
Kind of Wild
"We are more years in the future from the release of the movie 'Back to the Future' than the movie traveled back in time."
"If we traveled back in time the same amount of years they did, you could still get a VHS copy of 'Back to the Future' in a bargain bin."
While we may know these different pieces of history, it's fascinating to think about how they all fit together into the world's timeline. Some of it's interesting, but some of it feels mind-bendingly surreal.
People Share The Real Reason Why They Eat Pizza With A Knife And Fork
Pizza is one of those foods that nearly anyone can agree is good, even if we can't find a middle-ground on toppings.
However, one phenomenon that confuses a lot of people are the pizza lovers who choose to eat their pizza with a fork and a knife.
But the cutlery fans argue that there are good reasons to skip picking up that slice of pie next time.
Curious, Redditor Ok-Treacle-9312 asked:
"People who eat pizza with a knife and fork... Why?"
"I eat donuts with whatever I can pierce them with, whether that be a fork, knife, chopsticks, or whatever. I just hate getting my fingers dirty."
"Pizza barely gets a pass because you can hold the crust."
"But if grease drips onto my hand somehow, it's irritating."
Protect That Keyboard
"Typically I'd do it because I'm working at my PC and don't want to have to wipe my hands off every time I need to type something."
"I use a fork and knife to slow me down."
No More Overeating
"Using the fork and knife slows me down, it gives me more time to realize I'm filling up, and I end up stopping before I overeat."
Depends on the Pizza
"Depends on the pizza, if it's thick and unwieldy absolutely laden with toppings, I might reach for a fork. But if it's a standard slice, I'm picking it up."
Beating the Heat
"I'll use a knife and a fork when I want it right now, but if I bite into it when it’s too hot, the cheese will slap itself onto my chin, and I’ll scream."
"I don't have a single freaking tooth left in my head. Just about anything I eat requires a sharp knife."
"I've got plenty of teeth, but the ones in the front don't do a good job of meeting. So if I try to eat pizza without a fork and knife, my first bite doesn't go completely through the toppings, I pull the pizza away from my mouth... and all the toppings on the slice fall in my lap."
"You ever tried to lift a slab of deep dish to your face?"
"That's the normal way of eating a traditional Italian pizza."
"I just watched an Anthony Bourdain episode, and everyone at this Naples pizza place was eating with a knife and fork."
"It's a perfectly valid and convenient way to consume pizza."
"Source: I'm Italian."
Listen to Seinfeld
"How do you eat it? With your hands? (scoffs)."
"Maybe because they want to?"
"It looks neater, if you are in a setting with people you want to impress and want to come across as super tidy then a knife and fork would look okay."
"Sometimes I have a little too many (inconvenient) ingredients on my pizza that make it hard to eat it with just my hands."
Signs of Aging
"Because I instinctively take unmanageable bites if I'm manhandling food. That was okay before I hit 40 and my metabolism lost its sense of adventure."
Enjoy the Food
"Mainly, it forces me to slow down and appreciate the pizza instead of just shoving it in."
"Also, it makes eating pizza more of a sensory experience. I can feel and hear how crunchy or thick the crust is by cutting into it. I can tell how much sauce is on it by how much I have to spoon it up after cutting. I can also see how stringy the cheese is by having to twirl it around my fork."
This just goes to show that we all have our preferences, even when it comes to how we want to eat our pizza.
Now, the most important thing is to respect everyone's choices here... and maybe go grab a slice of pizza for lunch.
People Who've Spent Time In A Psych Ward Describe The Strangest Things They Ever Witnessed
Patients who have severe mental illnesses can pose a physical threat to themselves and to others, which is why they are often sent to psychiatric care facilities.
Those who have visited these institutions or individuals who work in one know firsthand how intense some of these patients can be.
Curious to hear examples from those who've witnessed extremely unusual behavior at these facilities had plenty to share when Redditor N3SSDOGGDOGG asked:
"People who have spent time in a Psych Ward what is the craziest thing you’ve witnessed?"
One thing is certain. There is never a dull moment.
Consequences Of Enabling Drug Addiction
"In our tiny community some kids are smelly because typically the parents are addicts who either didn't pay their water bill, don't own a washer/dryer or are too brain dead to care. The nearest laundromat is now 30 miles away because the local one got broken into and robbed too many times by. Our school is awesome, there are staff members who do laundry for these kids and make sure they get showers. It's discreet so they're not ridiculed. I hate how our society enables addiction and even celebrates drug use, but I don't know how we can fix it at this point. It's gotten completely out of hand."
Taking You To A Live Commercial
"My brother-in-law had a stint in a psych ward a little over a year ago, and on a particularly manic day they were in the middle of the community room and started singing."
“I have a structured settlement and I need cash now”
"This was then met by about 40-50 psych patients shouting back."
“CALL J.G. WENTWORTH!!! 877-CASH-NOW!!!”
"After getting a few verses in the orderlies stepped in and kindly requested they stop, which was kinda a shame since it sounded like they were all having a good time."
"I've worked in one for about 2 years now. The staff are just as crazy."
"Here's some highlights"
"Patient got into the ceiling, couldn't get them down for a while."
"Patient milked themself into their coffee. Did you know some anti-psychotics make you lactate?"
"The entire adolescent unit escaping because maintenence forgot to lock the gate. Don't worry. They all came back eventually."
"And myself getting a concussion from a patient trying to escape, they weren't successful, but at least I didn't work for 6 weeks."
"The funniest thing I ever saw (spent total of about three years in in my teens and early 20's): a kid in seclusion who was having a genuinely good time making staff's life a living nightmare while he was in there, took apart the plastic mattress, tore the foam inside into small pieces, donned the empty mattress and started yelling 'I'M GUMBY, DAMMIT!' while tossing the pieces of foam around like confetti. Even most of the staff were laughing about it."
Physical violence seemed to be a common occurrence.
He Had A Violent Streak
"Not a patient but an employee. Had a 16 year old kid come in who was about 6'2 220 pounds. Built like a linebacker. I found out since he was technically a child he somehow ended up at an autism school for children with very little security. He ended up inflicting a TBI on one of the teachers and got sent to us. The kid had a violent streak the likes I hadn't seen before, he knew he was stronger than most and liked to fight unprovoked and it always took 4 to 6 people to restrain him. I never seen a patient spend more time than him in the 'safety room' an incredibly small padded room with nothing in it. His parents wouldnt authorize his move somewhere else and they wouldn't take him home either. We were not equipt for someone with his level of violence. So there he sat... For one and a half years..."
"It wasn't like a single incident that was crazy, it was the entire situation."
David And Wendy
"I was in an adolescent inpatient facility for 30 days. One kid named David who was very tall for his age, I think he was only 13. He insisted on watching Friday the 13th movies on movie nights and everyone was afraid to disagree with him because of his violent nature and frequent homicidal fantasies. He hated taking his meds, and probably 2 or 3 times a week he'd brawl with the psych nurses over it. No joke, it took 5 to 6 large grown men to overcome this kid. He was scary."
A Mother's Experience
"My mother worked in an asylum in Ireland when she was about 15. This was in the early 60s. She loved working there, despite the fact that some of the patients would physically try and kill her. One patient always stuck out to her, every day he would tell my mum he was going to kill her when she finished work. She knew he loved music, so would tell him she was out dancing that night, and could he wait until the next day, which he agreed to. The next day he would forget what he had said, and would threaten her again, and she'd say the say thing again. This went on for a couple of years that she worked there."
Turns out some patients weren't seeing a change of scenery any time soon.
Fighting To Stay
"I work inpatient and we had someone who was in for 2 1/2 years. They would try to take him out but he would start fighting immediately and eventually said he preferred it."
I was a social worker at an institution that had a hall for what we called 'lifers,' it was essentially for people who had no hopes of ever being released due to their conditions. Anyway, my hall had 14 beds and it was full. There was this one guy who was huge. He was 6’7 and about 350. His name was Simon. He suffered from drug-induced schizophrenia and had bipolar disorder. He talked to himself all day, but never talked to others. All the other men in the ward were scared of him."
"It was my day to do first shift. I got there early to start on some paperwork I needed to finish. When I got my keys in the door, I heard Simon hit the door with his fists. I looked through the tiny window on the door and he and the hall was covered in blood. I panicked and called security for backup because I thought he had killed somebody."
"Turns out, Simon was in the throes of an extreme manic episode and had managed to walk the literal soles of his feet off. Other medication he was on thinned his blood and led to him bleeding all over the place."
"We checked the camera footage and he had walked and talked all night. The orderly (who was fired that day) had slept through his whole shift and never heard Simon walking back and forth."
Some of these examples sound like they could patients in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, without Nurse Ratched tormenting them.
But props to the real humans who are compassionate and look after those who can't function alone in society.
Even before these far too frequent cases of violence in schools, not all students felt safe going to school every day.
As bullying continues to be an ongoing problem, with students being bullied by fellow students and teachers alike.
Sadly, bullying has become so commonplace that many students and teachers might witness it and not think much of it.
Every now and then, however, people will witness something happening within the presumably safe walls of a school which still keeps them awake at night.
Something so shocking or horrific that should simply never happen anywhere... let alone in a school.

"Also, we had computer class where we were taught stuff like paint, word, PowerPoint."
"We had about 20 pentium 1 computers."
"One day, all the computers were gone, disappeared."
"And so was he, the candy giving nice dude."- EastOrganization2392
Strangest Thing About This Was That He Wasn't Watching It...
"Some guy in college sat in front of me in a studio."
"We were on stools so there was no back to the chair."
"He had his phone in his back pocket, screen facing out with porn playing on his phone, he had his headphones on."
"I wasn’t the only one who noticed, but I certainly didn’t want to break the silence by telling him."- ireallyamtired
Some Would Say They Deserved Much Worse...
"A bald girl crying as she walked to class."
"Someone had stolen her wig and run away with it."
"They knew she had brain cancer and couldn't chase after them."
"The wig was only returned after a popular boy made the girls give it to him."
"The girl died a few months later."
"Only bright side was that the girls who stole her wig had to change schools because no one would let them forget what a bunch of monsters they are."
"Play stupid games win endless harassment because you bullied the quiet dying girl who was nice to everyone."- godwins_law_34
So Much Wasted Talent
"We had a teammate drop dead mid-run during basketball practice in 8th grade."
"It turned out he had an undiagnosed heart defect and he just had a sudden heart attack with no warnings."- fightwallace
Everyone has at least one or two unpleasant memories from their time at school.
