You are here

Open letters

Seeing as we've got confessions and problems and issues springing up in threads all over the shop, I thought it might be interesting to have an open letter thread. Cathartic, perhaps. From your mother ruining your wedding, to your boyfriend who can't stop peeing on the toilet seat, or even that guy on the bus who kept making that annoying noise with his mouth, get it out here.

I'll get the ball rolling.

To my dear darling boyfriend,

Just because you are technically 'clean' when you come out the shower, it doesn't mean that I am okay with using the same towel you've been rubbing all over yourself for a month. I know you have others. I bought you two myself. Drag them out from the murky depths of the laundry basket, wash them and allow me the temporary use of a clean one.

Love, Cat

Dear Courtney,
I want your life for one day. Srsly, you are doing what I wanted to do and didn't have the moxie. Me, I wanted to study Egyptology. But that implied making the cut into Cornell or something (I could have) and living alone in the big city (I couldn't have). I admire you from the bottom of my soul. That comes from the heart, not from the mouth.

Dear Vegwebbers:  :)>>>
I am still feeling fragile today but better than yesterday. Crap, yesterday we were watching an episode of The New Sherlock (The Final Problem) and DH looked at me and suddenly switched it off. He thought the episode was scaring me...nah, it was tense, but it was just too much on top of everything else.
What I love is that you love me even though I'm me. Which right now I wouldn't wish on anyone else, even a seal hunter.

Dear Amy,
You can do this. You will do this.

I love you all.

Dear Mum,

Isn't it a bit early to start asking me to give my vote to whatever asshat wins the republican nomination?  Do you recall how well this went over with me last time?  Do you recall not speaking to me for nearly 2 months because I refused to vote for that moron from Texas?  If you really want my answer now it's NO, you cannot have my vote.  Feel free to stop talking to me until the election.  I'll miss you but at the same time, I won't.  Also, feel free to stop the barrage of liberal-bashing emails. 

Ta ta,

Dear Storm and YG,
That is exactly why I refuse to talk politics with my family.

Dear Dr. B,
You suck.  Out of all the doctors there, why did you have to take my case yesterday?  You just make me feel awkward and crappy about something that a) was completely out of my control, and b) I already feel crappy about and don't need to be made to feel worse.  And for the love of God, you're a doctor; use the actual terminology.  "This will make it easier to deal with...what we're dealing with."  Yeah, thanks for explaining things clearly.  I don't even know what the first medication you prescribed is, or what it's called, or what it's supposed to do, and the only reason I know what the other one is is because I've taken it before.  I hope the pharmacist will actually answer my questions.  You suck you suck you suck.

Go suck somewhere else,

ETA:
Deal pathologist yesterday,
You suck too.  I've had my blood sucked many many times in the last few years and this is only the 2nd time there's been trouble.  I have excellent veins.  You just stabbed me wrong...and then you twisted the needle to try and make me bleed faster.  And now I have a sore arm, thanks to you.  The pathologist who took my blood today had no trouble and it only took her about 5 seconds, start to finish.

Dear John Hunter Hospital,
Your parking system is stupid.  Really, really stupid.  Please fix it before I have to go back this afternoon.

Dear Permanent Grin,
Always talk to your pharmacist about meds if you have any doubts. They actually know what goes with what, what doesn't, and how to take them. I have had my local druggist look at my scrips, go  :o, and say "You can't take this with that, you'll never blink again in life."
She proceeded to call the doctor "for clarification" (unheard of here) and basically told him he was endangering his patients out of ignorance. And she did it so well that he took the advice on board.
I feel you.
Love,
YG

Dear PG,

not sure if you know but I'm a pharmacist with years of experience.  If you do want advice about anything, PM me.  I'll keep it confidential, but if you don't want to discuss with me I completely understand.

PS I'm off on holiday the day after tomorrow, so won't be online for a week and a half after that.

Dear yabbit,

thanks for understanding us pharmacists.....not many people understand we do more than just count pills. Even though I work in hospital and don't even dispense medication, everyone thinks I just count pills.

Dear Shell,
I know you're a pharmacist and I probably would have asked you if I had any idea what the drug was even called.  I didn't see Dr. Idiot yesterday, just the pharmacist and the nurse, and they were both very helpful and gave me an information sheet so I knew what I was taking.  So I don't need your help now, but thanks for offering.

Love,
PG

P.S.  I also realize you're much more than a pill counter.  Thanks for the important work that you do. :)

Dear VW,
I am in for a really bad weekend.  Good vibes/thoughts/prayers/whatever would be appreciated.

Thanks,
PG

PG,

Glad that someone could help you!  And I wasn't trying to imply that anyone here thinks I just counts pills....but that's what most people think : /

Hope your weekend isn't as bad as you fear.  Thinking of you <3

Dear M,

I know that you are not the best listener when it comes to hearing what I need you to hear, but this is really an issue that comes between us and almost more than anything I wish we could resolve things that arise from it without arguing the way we do. I love you too much to be this mad at you.

Dear bf,

Thank you for the wine and dinery skillz you exhibited tonight and just for being all that you are. I'm sorry I'm not being present in my life lately. I will make it up to you with kisses and being the best that I can, and many more trips to big sur.

Dear Hubby,
Setting the table does not mean "put two glasses on the table and walk off to do something else". And yes, when I ask you to set the table, I mean now. That means the food is ready to be served.
By the same token, clearing the table does not mean "put your own plate in the sink and leave everything else where it was."
You had a responsible job for 45 years, I know you're not stupid.
Irately,

dear roommate's boyfriend,

um shut the fuck up you have no idea what you're talking about. yes, dogs are natural omnivores everybody fucking knows that. however, i have done my research and you have not. dogs can thrive very well on a vegan diet. and obviously a dog would rather eat a steak than a strawberry because evolutionarily, all beings need the fatty foods that is calorically dense so we can store energy because we never know when our net meal is coming.also dogs wouldn't eat strawberries in the wild. but don't tell me i'm wrong when i know for a god damn FACT that im right. also, i know you think im dumb for being a vegan but fuck you, my health is impeccable and your doctors told you that you're gonna die if you dont start eating vegetables because you've said you dont like vegetables and havent eaten them in years. yeah, but you're the expert on nutrition. for humans and dogs. right.

Message from Semiveg through me:
I lost total access to my vegweb account 3 days ago.  I can not log in and when I try to reset the password, it says to log out and try again later.  A few days before that, it showed no posts in the "new posts since last visit" link  although I could access them by other means but if I tried to respond, I got a message timed out response.
  Please tell everyone I "said hi".

So Hi everyone, if anyone's here.
