I first read that as Jerry Lewis and I was like “wtf that’s random.” Then I saw the “Lee” and it automatically made more sense.

Speaking of Jerry Lee Lewis, he’s (yes I used present tense because he’s still alive, somehow) a fucking horrorcow. Dude married his 13 year old cousin.

Sid vicious and Nancy Spungen would’ve been great lolcows. Both were massive junkies who enabled each other and often engaged in lengthy physical fights. Sid was pretty unhinged and violent due to his drug abuse and wasn’t even a particularly skilled musician, but was popular amongst the punk subculture because he nailed the attitude. He really cared about Nancy, with his whole world seeming to revolve her. Nancy was manipulative and would constantly suicide-bait. Anons here would probably callNancy a pickme for being a groupie and a ‘sex worker’. The whole court case about how Sid might’ve killed Nancy would’ve been on the same level as the Depp vs Amber Heard trials. Idk if anons would side with That being said, I feel like I would see Sid being posted in the unconventional male attractions thread and at least one anon caping for him by saying that he wasn’t a misogynist, despite him being a psycho junkie

I used to idolize them (especially Nancy) when I was a teen but looking back I really don't know why. Easy enough to get yourself hooked on drugs and stuck in the gutter with some dirtbag who can't play for shit. I feel bad for her though, she was a schizophrenic and tried to perform an abortion on herself because she was convinced she was pregnant.

A thread for anons to tell stories and complain about the treatment and conditions of being a service worker, whether it be retail, food, or customer service. Have you got a horror story about a terrible customer? Is your boss a slimy piece of shit? Are your co-workers lazy good-for-nothings? Put it here! Service workers experience some of the most deranged of the population in their time, so expect some really crazy stories as well as the more mundane aspects of the job.

this is absolutely nothing compared to most of the stories ITT, but i am unironically triggered by people asking where i'm from after years of hearing that question working in food service/retail. it usually went like:
>have completely normal cashier interaction with customer
>they cut me off as i'm ringing them up with a "so where are you from?"
>answer with birth city (large US city)
>"no I meant where are you REALLY from?"
>then i am put in the awkward position of either insisting that i really am a natural-born burger or explaining that i have immigrant parents because apparently my sperg voice and general social awkwardness seems like a foreign accent
>not even a POC, just a weapons-grade autist

the funniest/stupidest examples of this were this old asian guy with a heavy accent asking me if i knew how to speak english because i couldn't understand what the fuck he was trying to order, and me answering some old scrote's annoying accent question with "it's a speech impediment".

Hello fellow hotel nonnie. That's horrible and disgusting. Hotel work is really just never ending horror stories and so much money gets lost from people soiling linens and mattresses. I also had a designated poo room that was always blocked off. Anyway here's one for the road:
>Guy is freshly out of jail and his mom won't let him back home, so she gets him a hotel room
>Girlfriend stays with him, she is drunk off her ass 24/7
>Police need to be called nearly every day due to domestic arguments between them
>Guy never leaves the room but has to be brought to the hospital a few times
>Housekeepers go to clean and the sheets are covered in shit
>Find out guy is dying of liver cancer and is just drinking his life away with his gf
>Look him up
>He's a war veteran with PTSD and a huge violent criminal record, including an incident where he killed his mom's cat
>Woman keeps drunkenly calling the front desk trying to order pizza and telling me to pay it for her when he arrives, but she passes out before she can give me her money
>Delivery dude shows up and I just turn him away
>Keep finding the woman's credit cards and ID by the ATM, she probably dropped them while drunk
>She keeps talking to me and saying how she's a model and for me to look her up
>I do, she's been arrested several times for drunken misconduct

You over-inflated what I was saying a great deal. I’m not pick-me just because I’m pointing out an actual phenomena among women ages 50+ in menial jobs that try to monopolize the entire small fishbowl they work in. That’s an actual thing. She specifically referred to older women who favor young men but treat young women like shit and I was commentating on that. I was never referring to or mentioning all women or making a blanket statement, you chose to misinterpret and get offended by what I said and that’s not my problem. You can criticize women who engage in behaviors that actively alienate young women and deliberately make them anxious. They aren’t strawng independent girlbawses for that kind of conniving and pathetic behavior.

No. Getting off is not the bad part, that's more for religious tards. The issue with real-life porn is that it is created using women who are exploited. Since you're consuming erotica, aka literature, no one is really being exploited. You could only really call in to question how that erotica enforces peoples beliefs about women, but personally I think it's harmless, especially since men rarely read erotica so it does not effect how they view women on the overall. Reading erotica doesn't really hurt anyone (only yourself if you become a coomer who can't get off due to repeated over stimulation, but that's a lot less likely to happen with women, and it's a lot less likely you'll get addicted to written work because it requires mental exercise in imagining the described scenarios).

Anxiety disorders are one of the most irritating ones for me, or maybe i have just met only people who make having anxiety their whole personality. Every group chat i have been part of that has had people with any kind of anxiety always turns into "oh no i'm so anxious about x!" complaining with others going "you can do it!!" like you're a fucking adult so you should be capable of meeting a doctor or doing your taxes or whatever without the constant need of encouragement and uwu validation uwu. Add some insecurity and low self-esteem in the mix and i'm at my fucking limit. Please shut up about how scared baby you are and learn some coping mechanisms.

ADHD, especially hyperactive presentation. I am diagnosed with combined presentation and I do get it, but I just feel like at some point we are forced to find ways to cope, and people who go are almost 30 who still haven’t even tried to manage their symptoms have been coddled. It’s embarrassing and makes me feel like admitting to having ADHD means admitting that I’m shamelessly irresponsible

I went to visit my dad's family who they cut off years and years ago. My dad is a narcissist so I assumed they were the sane ones. I was so, so wrong. They're the exact same as he is.. the whole time I felt on edge. They just associated us (as children) with our father and cut us out as well which was so, so wrong. They blamed me and my sisters for not reaching out earlier. (Wtf? We were kids.) I was expecting a great reconciliation but no such luck. Guess I'll have to live with it.

Just wanted to let you all know what helped me the most. I used to be so stuck in an emotional state where I believed I was worthless and unable to function like other people due to my past abuse. I was seeking counseling / therapy for ~9 years and still had this inner wound that controlled my entire worldview and view of myself. I changed it up and seeked therapy specifically for trauma. 2 years of trauma focused therapy changed everything. Now I have done things that I once thought was actually impossible for me. I have had more progress in the last 2 years than I have ever had. CBT helped to an extent with self awareness and recognizing harmful thoughts, but I needed something more. Get the help you can afford as anything is better than nothing, but if possible get a professional who specifically treats trauma.

My neetdom is nearing its two year anniversary but I'm moving into a new city soon and want to get an entry level job and friends but I feel quite anxious about interacting with people. It definitely feels like being neet has worn down my social skills into the mud. Is there any remedy besides just going out there and doing it?
Current plan is to get a service job and find friends in sports clubs.
Is this realistic for someone who hasn't been working/socialising for two years straight? I'm scared about not being able to stick to a schedule because my time management is so horrible. Not to mention my awkwardness.
I also wanna go to therapy but I feel so weird about it. Do I just write them an E-Mail?

idk if this is good advice but i was in a very similar boat. something I’ve learned though is that for a lot of people, they are in the same boat as you. one big thing that i found helps a lot if you are worried about over sharing/talking about yourself is to develop your listening skills and just try to keep conversations focused around the other person you’re interacting with. a lot of people’s social skills really degraded during the pandemic so don’t be so hard on yourself. listening to others will also make them want to come around you more, so it’s easier to get to know people. though it sounds like you should really work on being kinder to yourself - it is really hard when you’re a neet to not be so focused on your own thoughts, but please start being nicer to yourself anon. hate to shill but maybe if you haven’t invest in some healthier habits and see how you feel before you consider therapy (which sometimes can hurt you if you are in a really vulnerable place). basically the only thing that truly helped me through my grief over my twin sister passing and neetdom was taking a stupid multivitamin and forcing myself to go outside. having a job also helped to set up a defined routine (even though it does make you feel like you wanna kys for like four months if you aren’t used to it but it’s worth it). getting perspective from others helped too. but it’s a process. Your life isn’t over at 20 and it isn’t over at 25 and it isn’t over at 30 - you’ll live through this. don’t give up on yourself, you have time.
