One of my best friends up here is an absolute blast to party with but her boyfriend doesn’t like to go out and so they’ll come to parties for 2 hours max, if at all, before leaving. And maybe she’s into that now but I don’t care for it. Her boyfriend is fine, I mean, I get it, but it doesn’t mean she has to leave. I guess I just miss my friend.

Having a partner that always wants to leave things that aren’t about them is the worst. My buddy’s wife is like that. He left our rehearsal and wedding after a couple of hours because she was tired and didn’t feel well. Always gets sick when it’s his friend. Plus, they had a hotel across the damn street. What, she needs to be watched? Part blame is on him for not having a backbone. Don’t get me wrong, I get being there for your spouse, but come on

i can think of 12 reasons.

I actually thought of that, but let’s be honest here, does strat really strike you as a rambunctious, enthusiastic lover? Like, is he flipping you over for doggie and giving you a quick bit of analingus before he slowly puts it in and really going to work? Yeah, me either.

She’s certainly not unattractive, but I have no shot.

Napa I believe in you; I believe in that head of hair, and I always will. You can get her. She just doesn’t know it yet.

I'm going to take the contrarian side, but I don't think you should risk the ruination of your friendship over shooting a low percentage shot, particularly since she already has a boyfriend. You should be shooting more, certainly, but not with women who you are close friends with, who are already in relationships. Now, you could encourage her to find a boyfriend that isn't so much of a complete zero, but do it for her sake, not for dirty macking purposes.

Yeah, I have no intention of dirty macking. I don’t know who initially suggested that but it’s never going to happen. I do appreciate the confidence, but yeah, never going to happen. She’s a good friend and that’s just fine by me. She bought me lunch the other day. A burrito. There’s a casino about equidistant from our workplaces that we’ve considered going over lunch to play some blackjack but we both know if we got stuck we’d both have a hard time leaving down and then we’d end up getting fired.

I tried pretty hard to get her to agree to just let me buy thanksgiving dinner from this really nice local restaurant. It's like $25/plate, pre-prepared, customized to the number of people you choose. I don't care, say it's five people, I just don't want to eat shitty food like last year (it was at a different relative of hers'). I didn't say it like that. She insisted on her mom cooking. I relented, and it now sounds like it is being built up into a Big Deal with more attendees. I just wanted this dumbass holiday to pass uneventfully.

Last thanksgiving, her mom said something to me in reference to me being a "higher up" at my company, and now the whole situation just bothers the shit out of me. I make a positively middle class amount of money. I will never own a house that includes a mother in law suite. ****. Stop.

This is a dumbass holiday, that’s for sure. Should be Chinese food and family poker games. The turkey bullshit is beyond me.

Christ, I hate a lot of stuff, and don't have a large family that ever subjected me to awful holiday get togethers, but I find it hard not to get behind Thanksgiving traditions, whatever they may be. It's just: Eat lots of food.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.

it comes from my family experience. growing up my mother would cook all day and then complain all night that no one properly thanked her for cooking. then we'd go to my grandparents and each grandma would the same. just non stop bitching about how long it took to prepare and how thankless it was and every year i'd say i hate turkey and would prefer to go out for chinese or pizza or anything else to just relax and people would say it's a tradition and family time and i'd think why do i even want to be here.

after my parents got divorced my mom was pre complaining about the work and i flat out said you arent cooking a turkey and all that shit. I'll bring over a frozen pizza and some ice cream and we'll relax then go to movies. totally changed the holiday around. my dad, on the other hand, loves turkey but the bitching never stops with my step mom. it's a horror show that makes me consider skipping it. if my grandfather wasn't 85 and doing well i would, but i'll regret it forever if i dont see him when i can.

We hosted Thanksgiving last year, and it is a lot of work getting everything prepared. I never felt like bitching about it, but if I were older I could see it being kind of a pain. As with any situation involving family, alcohol helps.

I think all the BBQ places do catering on thanksgiving. You should do that.

I made way too much food for a party of two.

Leftovers, I guess. I just want the turkey breast and ham for sandwiches. The rest, meh. Oh, my buttered carrots were delish. The rest was cooked well, but I was over it.

Not doing it again next year unless it’s for a group. I like to cook to show off
