I need to get my hair cut, but the hairdressers in my usual hairdressers have all changed and they've not very nice people. So that means I need to find a new one and that fills me with anxiety because I hate random people getting to know me. I seriously need to learn another language so I can pretend that I can't speak English. Well, I probably just need to learn some social skills, but I like the language idea better.

I don't know the reference (had to look it up) but, yeah, sounds about right just without the women :/

It's The Peter Principle:

"The Peter Principle is an observation that the tendency in most organizational hierarchies, such as that of a corporation, is for every employee to rise in the hierarchy through promotion until they reach a level of respective incompetence"

good question. Is the wider world of work like this too, you wonder. Full of people who float along basically doing as little as they can get away with...

Thinking - wondering - where is Mo?
Has she come back from her doggy sitting? I'm missing her daily updates.

I think she said she was sitting the woofer until today.

^^/^

I haven't on the forum for a week? or so. My car died, (had to steer it whilst being towed to garage, eek!!), had a loan car briefly so decided to take much of my stuff (heavy stuff like my laptop home as I was worried about getting everything back, suitcase and the like, without a car! It's been exhausting running about Everything in the last week I've touched seems to have been a problem, I even got attacked by a sodding seagull

Still the dog is fine, the cottage is fine, and the owners seemed pleased with it all. Jez, (the dog) seemed to be clingy with me when they got back which was strange. I suppose they get used to who there with. I'll miss the silly sod.

^ Ah glad you are okay Mo - a week away and folk start to worry here

Sounds like you've had a particularly active week. Cars choose the most inappropriate times to break down don't they, but I'm glad you got yourself and all your stuff home safely in the end
It must have been sad for you and the doggy to have to say goodbye but I guess as it all went well you may have the opportunity to sit with Jez again in the future?

Aww. Thanks Consolida Tho I'd imagine a week without me posting drivel is probably quite nice for most folks

Tell me about it. Sadly my car is 'orf to car heaven

Yeah, I will miss him, though I won't miss the constantly having to rush back to make sure he was alright. It's quite stressful when your not in the local vicinity.

Yeah I think they seem quite keen. Mostly cause i'm local I think. They were saying they were quite keen on going up to London for shows and the like but because of jez they can't. So i think they will be in touch. She also told me to pop round and see him/walk him if i wanted too.

I very rarely work on a Sunday but today I made an exception and everything has been a pain in the arse, I would have been better off to bang my head against a brick wall for the day.

Honestly want to move out but I don't know how. I know I accepted my current job as permanent then decided to turn down the offer as job seemed to make me depressed and then other stuff such as the colleague I work with. It just doesn't seem like the best work environment for me.

Main reason I want to move out is cause I feel it would be easier to feel more confident or good about myself if I moved out. Idk if I have aspergers though one of mum's old friends, who was a teacher, did suspect it but my mum didn't check with the doctors. Times were different then though.

I grew up with her telling me certain things I did were wrong because people would think I was crazy or not all right if they saw me doing it. She uses the line "I will call the mental health team" as a threat. Like being mentally ill is wrong or rude. She suffers from mental illness herself but doesn't seem to have fully come to terms with it or isn't comfortable with the fact. But then she is estranged from family. But I also feel the fact that she isn't comfortable with her mental illness had probably led to her losing all of her friends, being unemployed or not being able to hold a job for long.
Today she accused me of banging something which I wasn't doing and told me off for it. I stim to music though, but wasn't doing that either. It just made me think that I can't really feel good about myself in my own house as my mum doesn't seem to accept mental illnesses and disorders.

My skin is so unbelievably angry today.

It's super dry, has been for ages but nothing I seem to do helps. And now I've started breaking out like never before and nothing I seem to do helps this either.

Time to tie a bell around my neck and move to the leper colony, me thinks.

Whether there's a greater example of poetry in domestic life than not being able to find your invisible socks in the underwear basket.

^ I feel exactly the same D1662. I hope you feel less frustrated one day.

I'm thinking, I wish real life was more like this forum. SAUK has loads of interesting people, having fascinating conversations.
In real life, so many people hide behind a mask, and most conversations seem to be bland small-talk. I don't really enjoy talking to people or listening to people IRL - but on this forum, I'm so much more interested.

I am always nostalgic to this era of music cause people say times use to be simpler without all this tech and the music also sounded simpler.

I am well aware though that it was far from simpler and there were more limitations when it came to typical music production. However by simple I mean that the song isn't trying to show off or asking for attention in fact it's trying to sound quite typical. The opposite of most music today, which I also like, which sounds more overly stimulating or machine like. And not necessarily always more complex but is made to sound more complex. Guess it's a product of the times though.

I feel mental disorders, being misunderstood for them, makes me emphasise when a person who went School in the 70's or so speaks of racism that happened then and the fact that they still may seem affected by it.

I wouldn't say I am around that many people, including those of ethnic minorities though IO notice the head chef, who is Ghanaian, and the boss in a previous job, who was Indian, talk so much about racial stuff. It seems that the older generations, ethnic minorities, are more affected by racial issues as they probably dealt with more open racism than the younger generations. They are also more likely to be migrants I guess.

I feel I am deeply affected by being misunderstood so would care about equality towards people with neurological and mental disorders like they do about racism.

I think I'mm going to the more political toxic side of Twitter. Saw a guy who posts news on racism, not bad I suppose, it's needed however it's also toxic I believe to constantly be angry. I believe too much anger can cause literally cause illness. So I wouldn't follow this guy or if I do, put him on the mute.

I'm crap at spotting "famous" people yet my Mrs can spot them from half a mile. When I say famous... she saw (and approached) Marilyn (80s one hit wonder singer) in a pizza restaurant last night, and then spotted (and definitely didn't approach) Daniella Westbrook at a service station Burger King about 2 hours ago
