Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Grinning Cat, the video is adorable!!! lol

Joan, I guess this couple who owns the restaurant just walk around everyday causing havoc.  The owner even told some crew who came to take pictures the wrong time the restaurant opened!  They just accuse people of things, make rules up on the spot, don't know just how things are run daily, etc.  It bothers me more than it bothers my daughter.  She likes her job and the staff.  She certainly isn't being singled-out.  I just know who they are in our city, and they think they are the upper-crust just because they own a lot of businesses here and are rich.  I just think people like that are jerks.  My daughter said each evening, when they leave, the staff just breathes a sigh of relief, and gets on with their jobs.

That monopoly cat video was made by Parker Bros. as a promotion to advertise the fact that the cat game board piece is a new addition to the game.  It won in a popular vote.  I thought it was a cute video.

Carl, thanks for the giffs and Monopoly cat. Clever.

Mindy, I hate what your daughter experiences and feel for her. False accusations, especially when so blatantly placing blame on her with no evidence, would really get my goat! There comes a time when she will look for work someplace else. If she has been accused twice for no reason, she is entitled to an apology and has the right to issue an ultimatum. She doesn't benefit by people not showing her respect.
This situation is what I call the "Oh Well ... !" syndrome. Receive an insult or put-down or discount one time and just shrug it off with an "Oh Well!" and she receives another insult ... and says, "Oh Well!", pretty soon her life becomes "Oh well!".
I can't think of a better way to become depressed and self-loathing.
I know, she wants a job and to become independent. That is a noble goal. What price does she have to pay to keep that job? Is it worth it to her?
A first step might be to discuss her reaction with her supervisor or boss and set some ground rules. To be accused without evidence and to not be trusted and supported by her co-worker, is an insult, in and of itself. It is up to them to prove her guilt, not her to prove her innocence.

Grinning Cat, splendid training that cat gave his/her owner. I wonder how long it took? I trained rats during my undergraduate work and I must say, those rats had me as well trained as this cat!

Grandpawrent's cats are so cute.

Don't envy your husband at all Melinda!!!

My youngest son is the same way with honesty & can't stand being accused of not being so. He eventually walked off a job when it happened just one too many times. He was not going to stand for it anymore, he's never been without work either.

Love the cats Carl and Patricia! It was almost 100 degrees here today! I went swimming at a friends house, and she had a few other ladies over. It was nice! My poor husband was totally wiped out after work. You can actually see the dried salt from sweating on his uniform. Ugh. My daughter's rich boss and his wife blame their employees for everything. A waitress left her purse out and open. My daughter is the hostess at their upper- end restaurant. First they accused my daughter of it being her purse, then asked her why she Let the waitress put her purse where it shouldn't have been. Also someone put a laptop on one of the tables. It left a scratch. They asked my daughter why she scratched the table. WHAT?!?! People are jerks! And she hasn't even been there a month yet! Her boss told not to worry, they accuse everybody of everything. My daughter prides herself on her honesty, and she was really insulted when they act like she's a liar. My husband told her that's just life, you've got to play the game. Well the game sucks!!!!!
