I met my DH when I was 30 & he was 23. I held back for a long time bc he was so much younger than me. Thank God he thoroughly convinced me he was worth the chance. It's amazing how many ppl judge us but an OM/YW wouldn't even get a second glance.

Am I the only one noticing that my husband's 14 yo nephew is using alt right slang on Instagram? Or am I the only one who cares/thinks it needs to stop?

On my way into the 3 yr old Pre-K class I overheard another mom telling her daughter to be nice to another boy "because we know him". Uh, wtf? You're part of the bullying problem.

Been very open w/ H about how unhappy I am in our marriage. Hasn’t done a damn thing to change his behavior. I’ve mentally checked out, pulled back, very stand off ish. He asked me if I was up for sex tonight. WTF?! How does he think that’s on the table?

I absolutely hate the fact that I still have feelings for him and I am so turned on by him even though he basically treated me like shit.

Starting to think DH doesn’t have a brain in his head. He never checks the settings or status on the appliances before starting them - dishwasher, washing machine, coffee grinder, vacuum. just press start and hope for the best I guess.

Saw a mom today deal with a fight and screaming tantrum from her toddlers in the quiet library. She did great and I wanted to tell her it would get better, but I chickened out and left her alone. You’re doing great, mama. It gets better.

I need to up back to working part time. I have zero time for myself and it’s making me a very bitter person.

DH buys me sex toys then gets worried that they’re replacing him during the day when he’s at work. Yes, yes they are.

My coworker is a self absorbed slob who needs a wife to take care of him. This is actually pretty much the norm I’m learning and it really sucks.

I work for the state and am horrified of how little we do. The majority of the employees are very lazy. They hate on other ineffective people but bask in their entitlement.

I love sex, but if a man wakes me out of a dead sleep, I WILL shank him with my toothbrush.

I remember having an anxiety attack when I was 18 and my mom trying to give me an Ativan. No thanks, I don’t want to become a prescription drug addict like you.

Sorry not sorry, I am suspicious of a teacher who is failing more than half her students, and then offers tutoring to those students for $30/hour.

I hate the assumption people have that, because I'm a mom, I like kids. I don't. I love my babies but most other kids drive me nuts.

Sometimes, I like hearing from my exH, because I like the chance to tell him off for the 80 millionth time. I never initiate contact, but if he chooses to, he can deal with my wrath.

Really want to know what people think of you, or what kind of people they truly are- elope. Not one single congratulations, just a lot of bitter/pissed of family members and friends who're giving us shit and the cold shoulder. We made the right choice.

Coworker finally put work email on her phone. Then has some stupid 80's song play each time she gets an email. She has volume up on loud. I have made comments about how annoying it is, she is too clueless to catch a hint. Gtetting stabby!!!

Literally the day after moving in with SO I knew it was a mistake. This is his place we just live here. I don’t know how I’ve lasted this long. But I’ll tell y'all. This is the last. I can’t do this. I don’t want this &I don’t care what he does anymore.

I've been in a drunken stupor for the better part of a year....realizing how out of control my house, cars, children have gotten now that I've been sober for a week. Never go back to that crap.

Have a friend that calls me daily. In 10 years she has NEVER said a kind word when I tell her good news. Not a "congratulations" or a "way to go" or even a "that's nice". Just uncomfortable silence until I change the subject. I really want to ghost her.

I'm so glad i spent 5 hours of my only day off cooking for H, for him to come home in a foul mood and pick a fight with me before he even sat down to the table. Do all husbands sabotage nice family dinners?? The asshole can make himself cereal next time.

Got a pedicure at a nail salon today. When I went to pay there was a man in front of me paying for his wife's nails. I felt a twinge of jealousy & sadness. My DH would never do that for me.

Honestly thought SAHM’s should keep everything spotless/have dinner waiting. I’m not that old fashioned, thought it fair since the other partner is commuting & working 8 hours. Haha dumb bitch. Joke is on me... SAHM for 4 years. Didn’t factor in the kids.

One thing I've learned is to drop those friends that aren't TRULY happy for you when you have good news. We all have those friends that pretend to be happy but are passive aggressive, make barbed comments & are only happy when bad shit happens. DROP EM!

I enjoy sex and it feels nice enough, but I can't relate to the "I'm so horny I'll do anything" feeling.

H says I never listen to him when he needs to vent. Really? Who listens to me? Certainly not h because no matter what I say he turns out back around to talking about himself and his perceived problems. I need to vent too

I fucking hate being a mom. Mainly the bullshit about non stop appointments and obligations, resolving petty ass arguments and trying to make EVERYTHING fuckin fair

I find it off when women I work with say they think SAHMs should do everything around the house. I can't even imagine thinking about asking my kids nanny to do everything and I pay her well. She would laugh, smack me, laugh and then send me to work.

I'm not sure if my throat hurts more from being sick, or from my husband choking me out on the ground in front of our kids the past night. What's wrong with me?

I feel guilty for wanting to divorce DH. He's done nothing wrong, and other women would think he's a great catch (they'd be right), but I just fell out of love w/him. Now that the kids are gone, I just want to be with a lover - not a friend and roommate

I hate people with perfect memory. I've known 3 of them, and each was a pain in the ass because she expected everyone else to remember EVERY detail of EVERY event - forever. If you're not, you're condescended to as if you're both stupid and lazy.

Had a friend who, before I was a mom, got divorced and pretty much handed her kids over to her exH and didn't come around much. Didn't understand how she could do that @ the time, but 2 kids later I completely understand.

My husband may have to pass on an amazing job due to some crap he signed in a current job. So pissed! He deserves this opportunity!
