I'm skeptical of the parental tape measure, myself.

Try as I might, I'm taking a half-foot off of any figure printed.

Well it was the doctor’s office measuring tape, if that makes a difference.

The doctor had just finished congratulating him for being brave, staying behind with the nurse to have his height and weight measured without me, his mum - we were all sitting down at that point.

And then realised that the boy he was congratulating was in fact a few inches taller than he was, and his voice wavered a little bit and he launched into an analogy about how cars come in different sizes too but that doesn’t make one size of car better than another

the doctor was congratulating a 13-year-old on being brave for having his height and weight measured without his mum?

Yeah...I think he was building rapport and trying to build up what he knows must be a fragile early adolescent male ego, desperate for any kind of praise to break up the constant stream of criticism from his mother you know, “You’re big” “you’re brave” to counteract the “you’re lazy” and “you’re rude” that he gets all day, otherwise lol

It just backfired a bit...

These two people board an otherwise sparsely-populated bus with many free seats. They sit several seats away from each other, one near the front of the bus, one somewhere in the middle.

Then they proceed to have a conversation with each other.

Why the fuck didn't you two just sit next to each other? Don't you know anything about how space works?

Maybe next, they'll board two separate buses, and still try to talk to each other. No, not with phones.

erica, i feel like you might be a netphorian who gets this......in my online class we were assigned to groups that we will work with for group assignments (we also have individual). i emailed the group (two other girls) and said, hey, the assignments total up to 6 multi-part questions. let's take two each. but one girl had started one all by herself and i had started the other and the 3rd girl was silent.

but i spoke with the girl who started the other assignment and i said i was leaving one question in my assignment for the 3rd person and maybe she should do the same but it was too late. I told her I would write her name on my assignment even though her hands wouldn't be on it and she did the same for me.

So the girl who actually did work emailed what she had done asking me to upload it cause she was having issues but the girl who didn't do shit got the email first and uploaded the work. I had also sent both of them my work and told the laZY yotch of the group to do #2, which she did and uploaded. I was actually super pissed last night that this girl who did hardly anything to contribute got her name on both assignments and was the one to upload them in the end making it look like she was involved. that smooth pissed me off.

Today I sent an email assigning them to problems for our next group assignment and gave the lazy girl the longest/most complicated. Someone has to lead the group so we don't do double work or one person doesn't get out of doing shit.

When I was 15, a girl in my music class at high school asked me to help her with her composition, just throw some ideas on a page for our composition teacher because our first draft was due in a few days, and despite her parents efforts and best intentions, she just wasn’t particularly musical - didn’t have a good ear for pitch, or a good imagination for sound. She’s a crown prosecutor now, if that gives you a better idea.

Anyway, she wanted to write a RECITATIVE based on an A.A. Milne poem about Christopher Robin. I said uh no can do, but I can give you some notes that I think will go with these words. She said thanks.

Anyway, I should mention, she is beautiful. She is tall and lean with beautiful skin that tans easily and pale blue eyes that sparkle and hypnotise most people. I never noticed because we were friends since we were little and to me she was just a friend.

We had a male catholic middle aged Head of Music then, who taught our class. He was infatuated with her I guess. She was old for the year, so she was 16 when I was still 15. He took the notes I wrote for her and was overjoyed to find that the class beauty was also a hidden composer. He lauded her in front of the class, gave her an unprecedented 100%, then praised it again, in great detail, in front of the school choir. I was in the school choir. My friend wasn’t. She was a second violin and then a violist, in the orchestra. He had the school choir learn the composition and we sang it at a concert featuring one of New Zealand’s most famous opera singers. I sang my own composition, along with the choir, to great applause.

By then, word had leaked that it was actually my composition, and I was encouraged to go and see the dean and report the situation. We had a meeting with this girl, my friend.

Her reply, in response to taking all of the praise for the composition, the performance...was that she had contributed to the project too, it wasn’t just my work. After all, she reasoned, she had in fact written it out in good copy, and that was the work that had been handed in, after all. I might have conceived of all those notes, but the composition handed in had been written by her, technically speaking.

We grew apart, after that.

And the fact that I had written the composition, rather than the Class Beauty, meant that it was never again performed by the school choir. The music teacher never gave me a single word of praise for it.

My own composition, a four-part setting for women’s voices, for a Robert Frost poem, was never sung by anyone. It received 80%.

So. The world isn’t fair. Just don’t expect it to be, and everything will be that much easier to stomach.
