In Topic: First Take Discusses A Woman's Responsibility To Avoid Being Beaten

If someone says "if you ever try to leave me it will be worse or I'll kill you," at that point, is your queue to leave. You just do it, it's not hard. Sticking around would literally be the definition of insanity, which in that case maybe the crazy couple is meant to be afterall. But, if you're not willing to play an active role in your own future, and allow some barbaric neanderthal to continuously have power over you, then really you have no right to complain.


I wish it was that easy. It's not. A very close friend of mine was in an abusive marriage. It took 6 months of planning to get her out. We (several friends of hers) had to get her completely off the grid and that takes time. New job, new identity, new everything. He followed us trying to find her. By some complete accident of chance, he was in the city she had moved to and saw her at a light. He got out of his car, pulled a gun on her, and tried to kill her. She is alive,he is in jail for attempted murder. It's not always so simple to just walk away from an abuser. Restraining orders are a joke and so is the law most of the time when it comes to protecting yourself from an abuser.

Had to watch this preview in the theater this past weekend. It's even worse on the big screen.

Hannibal Lecter.

Not sure if any other acctor could have pulled off that character as well.


Also thought Redd was a better played character than Andy in Shawshank though both were done extremely well.

I would tell her where you were going and send her a couple selfies from where ever you are. Sounds like she really doesn't trust the people you're going with. I would suggest to bring some cash with you so if you are driving someone elses car and end up somewhere you aren't comfortable being at, you can call a cab and get out.

In Topic: Why I will never work for a corporation again

Not to say this occured in this instance, but I've done some irritating stuff to employees just to see how they react. What I am normally trying to accomplish is to see how they react to conflict or bad situations. I'm looking for supervisor/management potential or to see how little it takes to set someone off. What I hope for is that the next day the employee will approach me calmly and with a well put together thought out solution. Maybe you should talk to your boss about it and let him know that next time he calls you in, you expect a full shift. If you aren't going to get it, then you won't pick up any more shifts to help out.

But that's just what I would do.
