Yeah our conversations on this thread keep running aground on the shoals of differing vocabularies on the opposite sides of the Atlantic. There are tons of other examples differing words for things. We drive "trucks", but Brits drive "lorries", potato chips/crisps, and so on. Ev...

I had one yesterday, at the dentist. A specialist I'd never met before came in and treated me terribly: poor dental care and disparaging verbal treatment. He even chipped a tooth that was otherwise healthy. He didn't know how to read me because I wasn't making eye contact, I'm not a good communicat...

Thank you . I’ve noticed there are people who you least expect who will be there for you. So it’s best to just go for it do things which make you happy don’t be afraid to do something new. You usually meet interesting people when you attend something to do with your interest you were afraid of or e...

I'm remote, withdrawn, clingy, not a good combination, no wonder everyone runs a mile. Because I'm so good at using humour as a self defense barr...
