    Had to give the ol' pubes a trim this morning. I think I've chosen the laziest path for facial and ball hair. Let it grow until it starts bothering me then cut it all off.

    I’m having an “Am I the asshole??” Moment

    Someone posted a GoFundMe for a couple who lost their newborn as a still birth. They’re trying to raise money to cover the medical and funeral expenses. The photo on the GFM is them with a newborn that’s swaddled and wearing a cap like most newborns are in the hospital. You can’t tell but if that’s the still born child - what in the fuck?

    I’m not judging how people grieve but posting a photo w your still born child seems so strange to me.

    Lots of people do it. I would not say you are being the asshole unless you won’t move on. I think it is more that you didn’t know that this is a pretty common practice and it is hitting you out of left field.

    yeah I had a similar reaction the first time I saw this, but thought about it some. If you consider how much some do before a baby is born making a room, clothes, picking out a name, simply carrying it for that long etc etc it makes more sense. There's an emotional attachment and when you think about it if there wasn't a funeral and pictures and the common things people do with newborns it would honestly be more weird in a lot of ways

    The foster-to-adopted daughter of a family friend recently left their home to go back to Arkansas at 18 and got pregnant then lost the baby at some point. She was posting pictures with the gray rotted baby corpse for quite a while after the still birth. It was pretty dark. It also sounds like there was a lot of meth and likely incest involved. Sad.

    Goddammit. I pulled off to grab a Turtle and move it off the road. Was all the way off in a driveway with my hazards on. Truck comes by going to opposite direction and runs it over. Felt intentional since the Turtle had made it into the double yellow lines. Fucking assholes man.

    This is the McD order with large fries and a single McChicken.

    Eaten plenty of McRibs over the years but now see it as a pork nugget smothered in sauce without the crispy outside texture. Don't need to eat another.

    I know several people who have had still births and a lot won't post pictures like that for fear of making people uncomfortable but it's a deal where ultimately they feel like they lost a baby and they have to pretend it never happened because it makes people feel bad or weird. Makes it harder to grieve :twocents:

    As I've gotten older I've tried to avoid judgment on grief if at all possible. People do weird things sometimes but for the most part they have their reasons.

    Community wet wipes are gross. Something about the fact that someone has been digging around in that pack of wet wipes grabbing another after previously cleaning their ass is gross. Someone at our office insist on buying tons of them and leaving them in every bathroom.
