A story came out of the States recently, and I’d like to take a few moments and talk about it.
First of all, Rest in Peace Jamel Dunn.
Second of all, if you have not heard, there were 5 teenagers who were hanging out by a pond, when they saw 31 year old Jamel Dunn walking up to the fenced off pond. They watched as this 31 year old disabled man, walk right into the pond. And then they decided to start videotaping. They were seen mocking and laughing at Jamel as he was seen drowning. Then, they heard a scream from the background, laugh and say “he just died”
Jamel was pleading for help, all the while these guys were laughing and having a great ole time.
I can’t even begin with this. I read an article today about how the teenagers didn’t have a “legal duty” to help this man. And what is astounding to me is that, that is even a point of contention. If they had no intention on helping the man, they should have just left. How heartless do you have to be to watch someone die and laugh and joke about it at the same time? I hope the Judge presiding over the case makes an example out of these teenagers. They chose to act like adults and should be send to adult jail. Where in my opinion, they should just stay.
Anyone into them?
These guys are hilarious. They play video games but their commentary is absolutely golden. I’ve watched them for years off and on.
And they never fail to make me laugh.
IF YOU OWN A DOG, PICK UP THE DOG POOP!
It’s simply not that hard. If your dog takes a shit, just pick it up. Don’t leave it for your neighbours, be a responsible dog owner.
This is seriously just being lazy. If you can’t properly take care of your pet, don’t have one. I’ve gotta clean my cats litter box, so you should have to clean up after your pet too.
Twice now, I’ve had to pick up somebody else’s dogs crap. Because I don’t want to step in it, and I certainly don’t want my daughter to step in it.
Sometimes I feel like a failure.
Most times I feel like I’m a failure as a mom, so much so that I wonder sometimes why she even smiles and likes me because I don’t see myself as a good mom.
Sometimes I feel like a failure as a wife. Sometimes there just isn’t any winning.
I just feel like I fail in every aspect of my life, and sometimes it all is just too much.
Well, Friday is almost over, and I have accomplished almost nothing today.
I haven’t felt well all day so I’ve been hanging out in my bed for the day.
I’m hoping to feel better this weekend so I can get some much needed laundry done.
I hope everyone has a good Friday and a good weekend 🙂
So we currently have a shared yard. I’m not a huge fan but we got what we got.
So one of my neighbours has decided that our yard is a perfect yard for their dog to be tied up in.
And I’m not ok with that. They don’t even watch the dog, so it goes to the bathroom where ever it wants to. And because they don’t pay attention the dog craps, where my daughter plays.
How are people so inconsiderate. It’s a shared yard!! Where kids play!?!?
I wish people thought about these things.
For years, I have had people in my life who either made fun of my problems, joked about them, minimized them, showed no effort to lend a helping hand, called them “ridiculous”, or blame them on my pms, or was told I was being brainwashed.
It’s really no wonder why I have issues expressing and even believing my own feelings.
After all of these years, and after all of the people who couldn’t get passed their own feelings to see mine, I’ve been managing on my own.
Sometimes it’s hard. Sometimes, I struggle so bad internally that I’m exhausted at the end of the day. Because sometimes there are issues that you can only share with a select few, but even then. Sometimes I regret saying anything at all. Sometimes it’s easier for me to pretend that I’m fine.
