"That's... so... sad. I'm sorry to hear that. Most people I know who have a bad relationship with their parents, they are usually at least close to their siblings because they usually bond with each other and team up over it. So your scenario is very unusual, it is surprising to me. Aww... "

I was told something like this by someone earlier today, when we talked about siblings and how I told her I am very distant from mine. I've always tried to not think of it and take it in stride, but of course... I can only fool myself blissfully and internally suppress so much. 馃槄

"Never say or make a negative comment about someone, especially when you realize the same thing can be said about you in return."

^^ Something I need to have more discipline in. Even when everyone else around me are doing so as a tool for bonding and mingling.

I guess there is a supply shortage of Flaming Hot Cheetos. Saw a small mob of shoppers racing to dump dozens bags of them into their carts in excitement just as the stockers restock them on the shelves.

Meanwhile the Takis were fully in stocked and none of them batted an eye on them. Personally I thought they are much better. And the trader joe's version are even better.

You should try Paqui Ghost Pepper chips if you haven't. They have real peppers.
I don't think I've ever seen those. Will keep an eye out. Thanks.

I have tried some other brands with the ghost pepper flavors, they are good indeed, but I think they're too hot for me.馃敟 As much as I like spicy stuff, my tolerance of them is rather low.

Aha, I see! :ROFLMAO: Everyone changes their profile picture every once in a while.

Still... I can't help but pay too much attention to the fact that you currently don't have a blue dinosaur as your profile picture when your name is Blue Dino.

Nothing to worry about though!
I did for years (surprise surprise). And I realized predictability is boring. 馃槢

My car tires are always a bit under inflated being older tires. 3 consecutive different gas stations I got gas at, I fail even to get the attendant (likely owner) to let me get air for the tires. The first two simply mumbled the the air machine doesn't work. The 3rd flat out ignored me and tuned me out, until he eventually stared at me in utter confusion and then annoying yelled "No! no! no air!" and shoo me away. Minutes later, I saw another guy tried using the air machine to no avail. So he walked into the gas station mart, gestured at the attendant, walked out seconds later and the air machine got activated and he used it no problem. He didn't even get any gas, just drove up to the air machine. No clue what I was doing wrong. Drove by on my way afterwards passing one of the previous gas stations, spotted two cars are getting air for their tires there. I can't even get something as simple as this done. 馃槴

There are some people I always cross paths with very consistently, or even near daily, for years. I will know them by their full name and know their personality pretty well just from observing them or overhearing them talk. But for some strange reason, we never once interacted. Not even a single word or a hint of a mutual acknowledgement. And I will never realize or notice this until after said person have announced they're leaving for good soon. And my initial reaction will be to say goodbye to this person before realizing I never once talked to this person, and dunno this person at all. Doing so, it will just be awkward. Not doing so, others will notice and they will see me as rude, thinking there is no way in heck we have never interacted once over all of these years.

This person and I walked by each other today as she's leaving probably for the last time. Everyone said their farewells and hugs to her. While I tried making eye contact with her wondering what should I do, and she glanced back at me. Just before I let out a polite slight smile and nod, she instantly glanced away comfortably and walked past me. Another odd thing is I did sign her farewell card, and she probably saw my name and wondered "who tf is dat?!" 馃槅

Even in school, I've had many people like this in my social circle as well. Friends of friends, I've always been around with for years, but never once have we acknowledged each other for some strange reason. Even times I will notice this, I will figure that must be a reason for it on their end, so I go out of my way to avoid interacting with them out of respect.

Me: They're all catching up to me, people are just getting faster. Even the slowpokes.

Reality: I just got a huge head start. No one is getting faster. I've just always been the slowest. Slower than even the slowpokes. And I'm sprinting while everyone else are just brisk walking.
