  •  Stop with the excuses (0+ / 0-)

    There is no excuse for the way they live.  None.  They couldn't even clean their fucking house.  Cleaning is free.

    •  I guess (0+ / 0-)

      everyone has their own relationship with people who are kind of fucked up.  For me, I know that if I spend too much time in a fucked up context (lots of people who can't do stuff like clean their houses or make good judgements) then it is a wee bit contagious, right?  And I've had tough times in my life where I've been around it and pushed off it, "I'm not gonna be like that, damnit" with some poor messed up friend or roomie as examplar, that I can hardly pretend to be free of the perception or emotional response.  But to me the most painful thing about watching really dysfunctional lives -- like many things -- is that shy some important part of my brain, there go I.  

      Mileage varies.  

      ...j'ai découvert que tout le malheur des hommes vient d'une seule chose, qui est de ne savoir pas demeurer en repos dans une chambre.

      •  I used this family as an example (0+ / 0-)

        of a mindset that takes hold when there are no consequences for action, or inaction.  They are, sadly, not unique.   So, I understand where the support for some of the harsh "ideas" comes from.
