*I* still love ya, Pe. You were just ill-timed and too soon. That's why I'm trying not to post about my two girlfriends while jam's going through a break-up. But her low self-esteem friend is reminding her why it's not so bad to be single.

Okay, I've looked but no luck -- in which thread was Tonka talking about the hoarder who collected her waste in bottles all over?

Naw, P, you were not an as$. Your heart wasn't in the wrong place; I know this. You were just trying to be funny. Even the best comedian drops a bad one every now and then. It happens.

Better to try to be funny, than to never do so, which I can say of one who was critical of ya. Boring...

THank you! I was sure it was this morning, so I wasn't look back far enough. Iwanted to share your posts with Nick. Last time you guys talked about it here, I told him and he was laughing out loud over it. I remember someone posted about baggies of poop being tossed on the stairs to the second floor, and you were incredulous.

I'd heard parts of that story earlier this week then forgot all about it. I think the teacher sounds clueless, and rude and mean to this girl. To bring other people in to add to the teasing remarks? I'm all for teasing, but a person in authority, with a heated topic like politics involved, getting others to mock the student?

I don't know that that's a person who deserves to be teaching.

That may be too harsh. I wonder what the teachers here think.

She's 16, not even old enough to vote. Teachers like that suck. Reticent of some of my junior high teachers.

Did you read some of the things written in the comments section? OMG, my head hurts from the idiocy in our country.

That letter is not even an apology. The teacher fails to acknowledge any wrong doing and chalks it up to joking around.

She should be fired, but she won't because of the teachers union.

Oh, this one was worse than the "stairway to poop attic" episode. Sh1t literally everywhere and the shrink guy says "Can't you smell that?" and the woman is like "I know it's a little musty from the dust and mold, but..." and "Do you really think I'm a hoarder?!"

She did not return to the house. Group home or something like that. Glad of that...

First time I've ever seen the shrink determine that the subject is unfit to live alone.

And did you notice that the poop problem was so bad that they did not focus any air time on the hoarding aspect of it? Usually there's all this drama about gettig rid of "their stuff", but they hardly touched on that...other than the bad food she still wanted to eat.
