    I'm on the bus right now and a baby is wailing. I dont blame the little tyke. I'd like to cry my fucking eyes out too and scream because I can.

    What if we lived in world where adults expressed themselves as openly and readily as babies? IS it strange to cry in public? What would you do?

    thankfully I work remotely now, but this happened quite a lot in my office also. We are all nurses, and I was the only male on the team. Sometimes a coworker would come to me crying, looking for advice on some of the stupidest shit. Girl is literally 300 pounds and being cheated on regularly. After a few episodes of breaking down like that, over the same guy, it is hard to feel sorry for her. And she does not have a thyroid problem like she claims, I see what she brings for lunch and to snack on. Fuck that.

    Shitty cardio but if she gets you down, that GnP looks insane. Looks like a prime Sakuraba with the two hand technique.

    Well there’s people that use Sherdog to cry openly about things. So there’s that.

    You sound poor. I don't read threads made by poor people.

    If you're on a bus you probably should be crying

    Her and our manager would take a morning snack/breakfast break, pretty much first thing after our morning meeting. A typical breakfast for her at work would be a pack of chicken sausages (4 per pack, each about 150 calories), plus 2 flavored oatmeal packets, another 150 or so each. That is 900 calories just there, in one sitting. Not to mention the absurd amount of coffee creamer (empty calories) that she puts in her coffee. I also assume she had some breakfast before even coming to work.

    In addition, every morning a pharmacy rep, rep for a med supply company, rep physician groups or other insurances stops by and drops off a dozen donuts or box cuban pastries. There are 5 people in the office, and the pastries/donuts all get eaten, and I never would have one.

    For lunch, she normally got something delivered. Usually a big sandwich with fries or chips, or like pizza. Of course, the amount of mayo she uses is near incalculable.

    As for snacks, she had a drawer full of candy, cookies, chips, etc. And probably have 2-3 cans of regular soda/day.

    When I still worked in the office, she would invite me to Zumba exercise classes (provided at our work), followed by happy hour. She would always get the worst stuff to eat, like nachos, negating any help Zumba did. And before anyone calls me teh ghey for going to a Zumba class, I was single, and it brought me to room full of female nurses, doctors/residents, among other health care professionals. Good networking for friends and dating.

    I was on the subway when I got a call from my mom telling me the only grandparent I've ever known had passed away. I shed some tears.
