In case you didn’t know, I forgive you for bullying me. All those remarks and fights are long past and really don’t matter anymore. If you’ve ever felt guilty about anything that happened between us, it’s absolved. All of it is water under the bridge. Actually I don’t even remember who these bullies are, only that I was bullied.
Dear those I might have bullied,
I’m sorry. There’s really no reason to accept my apologies but it’s how I feel and I just wish I had known then what I know now. Thank you to those who forgive me, and to those that don’t, let me know how we can get past this. Let me make amends. This isn’t part of a step process or anything. Just get a hold of me and let’s talk.
And finally, dear Karma,
I know it’s not my place to say this but I think it’s enough, isn’t it? My next step may be to give up most of my possessions and not eat for 3 weeks or something. Please don’t tell me it has to get to that point. But I’m thinking you can just forward me that million dollar check now so I can at least live out the rest of my life with my wife in peace. It’s not much to ask. Is it?
This goes for anyone in any house. I’ve had a few friends and one girlfriend who had an issue with not closing the bathroom door when they were doing their business. I’m not sure if that meant they were that comfortable with me. If they were, then that’s great but honestly, I don’t need to see them doing their business. Especially my ex-gf. There were some mysteries I didn’t want to know about. (Like whether or not she actually pooped or not. But I know, everybody poops.)
And that goes the other way too. I don’t need someone bursting into the bathroom while I’m doing my own business. This has happened once. But only once and I’m no longer with her.
So what about you? Do you leave your door open or closed while going to the bathroom? I don’t count showers in this though, only because you can hide behind the shower curtain and there are usually no embarrassing sounds involved.
This may actually be one of my biggest pet peeves. People must have been sleeping through English class or just plain didn’t pay attention on how to use contractions and knowing what words to use in what situations.
I think the biggest ones are: there, they’re and their. WTF is so hard? How can you not tell the difference between the three? There is a directional word. It has nothing to do with people and possession. Well unless you’re saying “there’s my friend.” They’re really means you are saying “they are”. See the difference between that and “their”? Totally different meanings.
Another one is your and you’re. Again this is easy. You’re means “you are”. Can you see how that would be different from “your”? There’s so many more offenders that it’s not even funny. Why do people make these errors and mess ups? I just don’t get it.
What are some examples of bad grammar you hate?
2. Toilet Paper should roll over. If I go to a friend’s house or am in a public bathroom and they have the toilet paper rolling under, I will fix it. Seriously, this should be done like this. I just don’t see how rolling it under can possibly be right. It touches stuff when it rolls like that people! At least tell me the rationale for it. I just don’t get it!
Must. Roll. Over.
Because Danalyn tagged me in some crazy meme, I thought this was interesting enough to do. I think it was supposed to be 10 books.

I’m not finished reading all the books I’ll ever read yet.
