Only wear armored jackets to ride? Really? When did the Merc become the safety Nazis? What no mention that the sell 3/4 helmets? Did you actually read the Hurt report or do you just mimic what your ATGATT friends say? Had you actuall read the Hurt report you would know that 21 % of all helmet damage is to the front of the helmet meaning those cool cafe brain buckets will do little to save you. Do I wear a 3/4 helmet? Sure sometimes... Because motorcycling is a habit with some built in danger and we all have to make our own choices as to how to mitigate those dangers. Safety granny rant off.
I think the writer should just put on there big boy panties and deal with it.
Shit happens, deal with it. Completely ignore her and either she will come around or you wan't have to think about her. A win-win solution.
I think he totally fucked up on DMSIG. Like some dude will wait around for 2 years while his ex parties it up 3 hours away. If he is smart he will have a good drunk then move on.
Look at it this way- if you are a good person (male or female)dating someone who needs to be treated badly to fall in love- what the hell are you doing pursuing someone with such serious issues?!? Just do what the rest of us do DTMFA, have a pity party with Mr. Daniels (or Mr Beam, or your old Grandad for all I care) and get back out there. BE HAPPY you found out how fucked up they were before you were married to them with a couple kids.
My other favorite slumlord trick was the "non refundable deposit" WTF... that isnt a deposit if I dont get it back. Just call it a fee and get on with it.
I feel the authors pain. For years I dealth with this shit- scumbag landlords who charge a pet fee, jack the rent for whatever while refusing to fix windows, broken fridges, or deal with a rat infestation in the basement that they keep as their "shop". A good landlord will usually make a little money with month to month, but really make their money when they cash out. Landlords who live off their units do so by getting as much from you as they can while fixing as little as possible.
While owning a home may not be all the rage right now- if you are a dog person that is what I did and I have never looked back. My advice- get a five year plan for home ownership together, and get on it. Whenever I go by my last slum house in portland (which I moved out of ten years ago and it still hasnt been repainted) I just smile on my way home.
