    Not really, after all you might not always be asexual or aromantic, or you might find a person that works. And frankly if it's only a couple weeks, you didn't really have "girlfriends" and you weren't at the stage where you should really have been feeling a great deal of attachment (unless you're somebody who latches on really quickly).

    Real Confession: Back when I was a teenager during my school basketball days I finally made my first shot and I start dancing all over the gym. My assistant coach told me to stop dancing and so I did. My team won of course and it was a scrimmage against a public high school which is next to my old school. My dancing causes so much attention to the other team cheerleaders. The cheerleaders ask me to dance with them and so I did. My dancing with the cheerleaders causing the other players (their boyfriends) to be jealous at me. So this was my cue to leave. Best confession ever.

    There's a chance you could find someone else who is asexual and aromantic whom you like enough to be with for the companionship, if nothing else.
    Avvie by yours truly.

    You only need a few good friends in life; and you absolutely stick by them no matter what.

    I don't use the registry on this site, ask me if you need more info about my charries.

    - In 5e D&D healing is less important. I actually enjoyed healing being more of a resource, and I enjoyed playing a cleric.

    - I am an insurance agent and I looked the other way when a co-worker stole a customer as he needed some sales.


    I am not sure if I mentioned these in the past:

    - In my 20's I accidently asked out several girls on dates. I even showed up to on "date" with a date. I had lots of slashed tires.

    - In high school I was perused by the girl voted most attractive in the class. I would have gone out with her if she asked.

    - I married my best friends little sister. I married way out of my league.

    - When I was about 25 my wife inherited $144,000 as a 100% complete surprise (I never get to talk about money stuff).

    - After a big lay-off I was offered a position "in the field" and turned it down thinking it was climbing up poles . . . I think I was dead wrong.

    - Sometimes I wear overalls so that store clerks do not approach me (they are also comfortable).

    - I am shocked when I see someone other than me in overalls, especially grown men.

    - I stopped a Chinese tourist in her tracks wearing overalls once. I also think that she stopped to gape as she thought that I had two wives (we were with a female friend, and her child).

    - My 401(k) went up about 40% to 50% under Trump investing in Aerospace and Defense (I never get to talk about money stuff).

    - Taking my wife's pension into account (converting 75% of her current pay as an asset), we became quizi-millionaires this year. Kinda-sorta . . . as long as she remains at the job and retires in 15-20 years.

    Confession: I feel like optimized all the Non-Tier 1 classes in Dungeons and Dragons Version 3.5 games is very meaningless and doesn't have any good reputation to shine unlike the Tier 1 classes.

    I do that too. It doesn't even necessarily matter what the movie is about or how emotionally moving it is. I've always wondered why.

    About two years ago the eye doctor told me I had something going on with my tear ducts, especially if I stare at a screen for a long period of time without blinking or otherwise looking away. I guess I have my answer now.

    I accidentally started a grease fire in my kitchen last night while trying to prepare dinner. I was going to stir fry some beef and vegetables, so I put some oil in my pan and cranked up the heat. I went back to chopping vegetables while the oil heated up, and I guess I left it a bit too long because suddenly there was a fire in my pan.

    I was able to grab a fire extinguisher and put it out quickly, then called the fire department to come look it over and clear the smoke out of my apartnemtn. No one was hurt and nothing was even really damaged (except possibly my stir fry pan, which I dumped in the sink to sort out later while I cleaned up everything else).

    I'm torn between feeling proud that I handled the fire quickly and calmly, and feeling monumentally stupid for letting it happen in the first place.

    The worst part is, I didn't even really want to cook last night! I wanted to get a pizza, but I convinced myself to be responsible and use up the veggies in my fridge before they started to spoil.

    Okay. Back in October I walked away from my job with Wal-Mart. I worked there for just shy of 15 years.
    I have been living off of my 401k and plan to do so for at least a few months more. I'm going to use the time to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life.
    At least, that is the plan. So far, I haven't come up with anything solid. I've thought about security work, but I'm not positive I have the temper for it. I have also considered working at the airport doing baggage loading. It is similar to unloading a truck trailer, but I'm not a young man any more.
    Alternatively, I could go to a trade school to learn plumbing or electrical. The thing is, I'm petrified of spiders (even the word makes my skin crawl) so that isn't a good idea either.

    So here I sit. Day after day with no clue where I am headed.

    Don't feel stupid. My dad is a retired firefighter, so I feel pretty confident in saying that kitchen flare-ups can (and do) happen to anyone, and handling it well is a rare and valuable skill.

    If anything, use this as a chance to learn. Oil will smoke before it ignites, so try keep a closer eye in the future. Make sure you have a (metal) pot lid that you can throw on top of your stir fry pan to smother it, as that's both quicker and safer than the extinguisher.

    (Also, if it's a non-stick pan, make sure the coating isn't damaged before you continue to use it. If it is, I'd replace it.)

    Dude, you've got 15 years of loading dock experience? Look into manufacturing plants and warehouses in your area. They all do pallet loading and shipping/receiving to some degree, and with 15 years you could go for supervisory roles easily.

    The coating is indeed messed up, so the pan is ruined. It sucks because it was a birthday gift and I haven't even had it for a full year. I bought a replacement online a couple days ago and should have it in about a week.

    I read most posts in my own voice or my wife's voice, except when I imagine the commenter sounds like Slim Pickens, Christoph Waltz, Patrick Stewart, Anna Kournikova, or Helen Mirren - because why not?

    But my own voice becomes either Liam Neeson or Samuel L. Jackson - again, because why not?

    Depending on where you live you could look into other trades than plumbing or electrical, there's a lot of them that don't involve that much spider stuff, such as: Operators, Piledrivers, Carpenters (most of the time), Ironworkers (some of the time), Painters (though they make less), Outdoor Linemen (who make the most and probably don't deal with spiders that much, but it's brutal work). Heck, you could look into the teamsters, where you could probably just buy a book and be in, and they're basically the exact same job you were doing.
