• Is it right to be mad about this?

    So I drive a car that my stepdad bought a year ago for himself. He doesn’t really use it because he works and he has his own truck for his job .

    So I drive a car that my stepdad bought a year ago for himself. He doesn’t really use it because he works and he has his own truck for his job . So my point is the only reason I’m allowed to use it is because I drive to where I work and my mom convinced him to let me use it . I only use it for a couple minutes a day and when he uses it he takes it for more than a hour . So he’s basically using up all the gas . I’m just saying, yeah sure he pays for the car insurance. The car is pretty old cause it’s from 1998 . So he paid it off. I get mad cause when I use it and use up all or half the gas I refill it and he doesn’t seem to care about wasting the gas he leaves it to almost empty. But I mean he is using his car so why have to be mad about refueling your own car . I use it to get to where I need to be and I still will refuel it to use it again. I’m just mad cause he thinks that because I work or earn money, I may have all the money in the world. I don’t know wheather I should confront him or just let it be .

  • My new boyfriend won't let me talk to my family?

    So my new boyfriend stopped letting me talk to any of my family or friends. He took my iPhone away from me and even changed the password on his phone to keep me from using it.

    So my new boyfriend stopped letting me talk to any of my family or friends. He took my iPhone away from me and even changed the password on his phone to keep me from using it. When I asked him for my phone back he told me that he sold it. He says that he's just doing it to protect me. He's much older than I am and more experienced in relationships so I want to trust him, but I really miss my mom and my sisters. I was going to sneak out to visit them two days ago but he locked me in the bathroom and braced a chair up against the door so I couldn't leave. I haven't even been to school in like two weeks. I borrowed the neighbor's phone and called my mom to pick me up but I'm really worried about what he's going to do when I eventually go back home to him. Is this normal behavior in a new relationship?

I used to torment and tease him all the time (he was ten years older than I), but we had some really great times and he knew I was just being a brat when I would bug him. I don't expect answers I just miss my big brother and want him back.

They allowed me to attend Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga concert with out even hesitating. How do I ask my parents to allow me to be around blacks more, learn black culture and to trust me more?

Also why the 200.00 is being taken (pretend rent, forced savings/investment, help cover cost of other siblings, mom's personal fun fund, etc) and your age, are helpful to understand if/how much you should be bitter about this.

    Well congratulations with getting your second paycheck ever but managing to get a bonus where you can send 5K to your mom. I assume medical and/or IT related. Yes you can be annoyed and frustrated with your mom. With what you have shared. You should talk to your mom about this. At this point why does your mom even have access to your funds?

  • Why did my sister marry a white man?

    I'm so angry at her. In our community, we don't date outside our race. My parents worked so hard to send her to America for an education. Then she ran off with a white man and got married.

    I wouldn t say that my brother and I have ever had the best relationship but recently it has gotten a whole lot worse. I am 16 and he is 13 and honestly right now I feel scared to be the house. He is constantly verbally awful to me but today he physically attacked me and my parents were right there. He was kicking me and screaming at me and I was crying and when my parents broke us apart my mum just said "go have a shower" and my dad just stormed off to the study room. Its not fair he always gets away with this stuff. I have been sitting in my room crying for the last half hour and no one has come and he will for gods sake get way with this and I will get the blame as apparently I was provoking him. I just feel so alone right now. I love my mum and dad and 2 sisters but I just have no love for my brother at all. Is anyone else in this situation or has been? Does it get better? My brother has my parents thinking that he is a nice person by honestly after today I don t think I ever want to see him again/ vice versa. But if he were to die I reckon I would feel sad but I reckon he wouldn t care if I died.

  • I can't stand my "stepdad", UGH!!?

    Best answer: If it helps, he is not your stepdad. That term applies to anyone your mom marries. Instead, he's mom's boyfriend who also happens to be a lazy slacker.

    I don't know why your mum is putting you in this position, but there's just nothing you can do until you're ready to get out. Also, don't compare yourself to people to have it worse, as if you're being whiny. You have a legit gripe here, because nobody wants to live with some boyfriend.

    So I'm 16, in higher education, not yet moved out of my mum and stepfather's house (mid-terrace, 4 bedrooms, on the small side but not cramped), and I'll be honest, the state of it is disgusting. Mould or some sort of limescale growth underneath the shower screen, in the tiles grout in the loo, thick layers of dust in every corner. Wallpaper half hanging off (from the time mum decided she wanted to pull half of it off for no reason), missing tiles from the kitchen which show the repulsive powdery plaster underneath. The stove is gross, the toaster has NEVER been cleaned, and I won't begin to describe the state of the fridge. I desperately want to point out the gross-ness of it all, and I am HAPPY to help (on previous occasions I have offered to clean and scrub and hoover, but my offer is turned down.). However, I don't want to be rude to mum (who cares about the stepfather lol). I'm willing to spend days at a time cleaning the layers of filth in my house, but they just won't let me. What would you do?? (I have to resist the urge to bleach our entire bathroom every time I go for a pee. I can't eat the food from our fridge anymore. Help!!)

    Best answer: "Your turn."

    I actually got on a form of birth control that has a far lower dose of hormones: the Mirena IUD. But when I said I'd rather not use any hormonal birth control between having kids, it wasn't an issue. We just got condoms and used them until we were ready to try for a second child. No convincing necessary.

    Did he need to convince you to use birth control in the first place? Any good guy would understand that putting on a condom for sex is a lot less invasive than you having to deal with the side effects of the pill ALL the time.

    Once you tell him you just don't want to have to deal with these side effects any more, it should be a no-brainer for him to respond, "Then we'll just have to get condoms instead."

  • My Dad is an ignorant man who was abusive to his elders. How do I get justice for the emotional hurt he has caused me?

    Best answer: Rather than seeking "justice", seek safety from further abuse , if you feel he has harmed you or that its unpleasant to be around him,etc. Be self protective, and forget about "getting justice",which would only keep you involved and cause you further stress.

    When I get in a fight with my mom it always results to her saying "What you say hurts" "Do you know how much you hurt me?" and she makes me feel guilty and says those things if I say something she doesn't like.. When we're in fights if I don't sit down or stand whichever she says she yells at me and once when I accidentally hurt my brother it was eating me alive and on the way to school she told me "Do you know how much your brother cried last night because of you? He was up till 4 in the morning crying because of you? You're a cold person." It seems like I'm turning out to be my father I think in her eyes.. If I try to apologize to her she says "You're only apologizing because you want to shut me up isn't it?" and if I say no I'm not she says "yes you are." I'm usually afraid to say something cause I want her to be happy and I'm afraid if I say something wrong I'll ruin her day.. These fights happen a lot if I say something she doesn't like but it's not disrespectful either I love my mom very much but sometimes it seems like she doesn't love me..
