I was telling him that I had a good chance to get in the university I wanted, since they calculate your GPA on the last 30 credits, not the whole 60.
This is great for me, since I had no idea what I was doing the first year of school, since I never did anything right in high school, and I didn’t know what courses to take, etc.
Then I figured out how to be good at school, and started getting all A’s & B’s. GPA went boom.
How does my dad react to the good news?
“Well that’s not fair to the people that work hard the whole time and don’t slack off for the first year.”
“Dad, I wasn’t slacking, I just didn’t know how to do school yet…I was still really trying.”
“Well that’s not fair to the people that work hard all the time.”
I’ve never been a fan much of the commercial stuff…but the homemade stuff is AMAZING.
Yeah, your dad sounds like my dad! It’s astounding the shit parents can say. This really says it all.
I’ve got so many other stories like that. Like when I was in grade two I hated my school picture, so I scratched it up and wrote ‘ugly’ all over it, and my dad walked in after I did it, and yelled at me for “wasting his money”.
Or the time it got out that I was throwing away my lunch at school, so I could lose weight, and be accepted- when he freaked for ‘throwing away food/money.’
Thanks though. It helps to hear there are some people out there that get it and are supportive. <3
the season of not being able to leave my windows open because my neighbours are constantly getting high on their balcony!
Right? obvs anon cannot read. we should start a centre for assholes who can’t read good (and who wanna learn to be good people too) for such poor unfortunate souls.
So yeah, the CEO of A&F is a total douche.
But why is everyone acting like this is so unheard of?
As a fat person I can tell you this is just one of the hundreds of stores that don’t want fat people to buy their clothes.
They just don’t always release statements speaking blatantly about it.
I’m just sick of hearing about this.
And then seeing everyone on facebook applaud this guy.
Without realizing the harm done in that campaign.
I do kind of like it enough, but it just doesn’t feel like me.
Although it would be nice to be blonde so I could add some colours in there. It’s kinda impossible to do that with red. ;)
