The point of your post is very true. But you'll find it's not a wise idea to make sweeping statements involving an entire group of people. You are doing exactly what you are claiming we ugly Americans are doing.

Go buy your own if you're that broken up about it.
Ok, I know we aren't supposed to respond... but are you referring to your exchange student?

Maybe she doesn't realize that it's not an open sharing environment. She may just be used to just sharing everything and if that 's the case I hate for her feelings to be hurt and "broken up about it".
Sorry - I wasn't ignoring this, I just didn't see this until now.

Yes, I am referring to her.
She knows that she's supposed to be buying her own, and the only thing we're "required" to provide for her is food along with a place to stay. This was made clear to her when she got here by my family, and by the exchange student coordinator.
The first few months she was here, she bought her own, and everything was fine. Until one day, when she starting using the stuff that I had in the shower. I didn't mind at first, but then more and more conditioner was disappearing each month, to the point where we were buying (rather large, mind you...) bottles of conditioner every 2 weeks. She must have been eating this stuff, by how quickly it was disappearing.
My mom spoke with her nicely about not using so much, and that if she didn't cut down, then she'd have to start buying her own. She didn't stop.

I wrote "if you're broken up about it" because she started glaring at me the first day that I took it out of the shower, like I was doing it to spite her, or something. Which I wasn't. I can be juvenile sometimes, but not THAT juvenile.

Of course, not keeping it in the shower seems to be backfiring on me, because I keep forgetting to bring it with me.

And it will steal your innocence

Guess what--we didn't invite you to stay at our house for 5 days. You invited yourselves!! That is RUDE and in BAD TASTE!! The only upside is that I don't feel guilty about not bending over backwards to make you comfortable.

I can't wait until the new baby is born--then his or her room will be the guest room and you won't have a place to stay in my house. Boohoo.

There's so much I wanna say....so much I'm feeling. I'm a fighter, but I'm not going to fight alone. I'm respecting your feelings but don't expect me to wait around for you to realize that I'm the best thing to happen to you since having your two boys.

You don't block your blessings because of you having unresolved feelings concerning your past(love). You can't recapture what you never had in the first place. But maybe this is a lesson you'll have to learn the hard way....for the THIRD time. You're almost 40. Time for you to seriously think about what you want long-term and not get caught up on what once was, or what you once wanted it to be, but never was.

Either way, I'm going to be fine. I love you SO SO much, but I love myself more, and if you can't give me what I deserve, there are men who would be more than happy to take your place.

A terribly heavy load has lifted. I feel a million times lighter and happier right now. I feel relieved.

Why can't we get along? Why do you take everything I say as an insult? Why can't you understand that we are different? I know you think that people other than yourself are the scum of the earth, but don't get mad when I say you're racist. When you judge somebody based on their race, it's racist.

Don't hate me because I want to work, make something of myself. Don't laugh when I tell you my future goals. Stop telling me to try to look prettier and when I get a B, it's not because I haven't studied or don't care about my grades. It's because I'm human. I work as hard as I can.

You still don't know that I cry myself to sleep sometimes, and I went through a bout of anorexia. You don't know that sometimes I worry about my mental health and want to just run away from it all. Please try to accept me as I am.

Why do I have to make your decisions for you? I'm not going to be here forever, I want to move out.

Just because someone has a red slash of hair colour does not make them a bad/evil/violent person. Male models have facial hair it's fashionable, get over it. It is not the 1930s anymore.

Please tell me what it is that you are giving me that I can't give to myself or get somewhere else because I don't know anymore. This weekend was the first time I asked myself this question and couldn't think of an answer. I'm not afraid of being single, so fix this or I'm gone.

Who is grazing on my seedings?!

Listen. I didn't start plants from seed last year. So I decided to do it right again this year and grow the varieties I like. I purchased my special seeds. I purchased sterile growing medium. I have my grow lights going. Little sprouts are coming up and everything is beautiful!

Until you come along and chomp off the first leaves. Thanks for leaving behind the stubby little stems. Oh, and the turds are a nice touch too.

I'm starting to see how humans evolved to be so brutal and bloodthirsty. Take heed, little rat ba5tards: My seedling trays are not a salad bar!

I am so glad you're gone. But it was pretty crappy of you to first give only one week's notice, then up and quit a day early after literally throwing a temper tantrum, and THEN start telling everyone that you were fired so people will feel sorry for you.

WTF? Aren't you almost 30? Grow the hell up. If you had to leave us in the lurch, then at least own up to it.

If no one responds to your posts, maybe you should take that as a hint.

To you: at this point, I believe I just wish you would leave me alone. I don't even want to be your friend anymore. Yes, a long time ago, had I had the chance and been in the position to be, I would have wanted to be with you. No, I didn't admit that to myself and I didn't act on it but I know I had feelings for you for years ago. I don't anymore. You fixed that. You forced me to stop caring and to lose any hope, and NOW you want to come around and bug me about it again? The answer is no.

And to YOU: you need to break your pattern of cheating on people, stringing someone along until you find someone else, then dumping them. And to insinuate that we should get together despite you having a SERIOUS GIRLFRIEND... WTF is wrong with you anyway? And when I said that was insane, that if you wanted to be with someone else, you should not be with her, you actually said to me that it may not work out with us, so you should give me a try for awhile first? You think I'm just dying to be the next in line to get cheated on, huh? Dumbass.
