[ - ] I did something in front of DC that I'm really embarrassed about. Downstairs neighbor keeps complaining about piano noise and I am so tired of it. Last week, my DC practiced a total of 30 mins the entire week. She practiced two days a week for 15 min each day. Yet this woman complains. I was so furious that I started purposely making noise downstairs so she could see what it's really like to have nuisance neighbors. I did it in front of DC and immediately felt guilty for losing my cool. I told DC that what I did was not ok and I will try to control my anger. Thoughts? WWYD with a nightmare neighbor? Tia. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My neighbor practices her piano 1/2 hour every night. She's apologized to me, for no reason. I told her I love hearing her play--it sounds very cozy and nice to hear this. (I studied music in HS and love the sound of practice). Sorry your neighbor is a nut. [ Reply | More ]

Op: now my dd isn't good enough that it sounds soothing but she also doesn't practice enough to really be a nuisance to her. She literally practices 3-4 days a week for about 15/20 mins so the fact that she complains boggles my mind. Thank you for your response because it validates my thoughts that she's the one that's nuts. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] One thing that is very interesting is that Trump is desperate for Kavanaugh not to withdraw his nomination. There are many right wing justices who could replace him. But it seems only Kavanaugh has pledged fealty to Trump and I suspect promises to make Trump above the law. That's why this nomination is being rushed despite the kind of truly abhorrent behavior that has led to other nominees being withdrawn. If Clarence Thomas had been caught writing nasty sexual innuendoes about a woman publicly, he would have had to withdraw. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No, it's because there is a chance a right-wing nomination replacement would not be confirmed by a Democratic-majority senate after Dec 2018. Even if they try to confirm him after the election with the lame duck Senate, they lose in the media when Dems say this isn't legit when an election took place removing Republicans from the majority.

[ - ] DD(17) is in an arts magnet school in Texas. There was an online discussion on Gonzales v. Raich, where the Supreme Court cited the commerce clause to validate confiscating someone's crop's even when those crops were grown for personal consumption in a state where such consumption was legal. DD was agreeing this was constitutionally appropriate and said the decision reaffirmed Wickard v. Filburn, where the Commerce Clause was cited for fining a farmer for wheat he'd grown to feed his own cattle. DD got a response she'd downplayed whether or not government should be regulating this. She got told her responses didn't follow good etiquette. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

She responded that she'd only wrote about what government could do instead of what they should do because this was a constitutional discussion and not a moral discussion.

Our 3 year old STILL isn't in bed b/c husband came in, liesurely took off his clothes, then sat on the toilet for like 12 minutes. Then took his sweet ass time finishing 3 year old's bedtime routine (which I already did half of) .
