Ever get the feeling you wasted 20 years of your life? I have. Worthless wife, slob. House is so cluttered nobody ever comes to visit (for about the last 10 years). Two kids, who are the only reasons I have to not have either killed myself or gone out for doughnuts and never come back. Love / hate. Love my kids, hate the rest of the package. Dead end "career" in engineering, which is now sold out to India and China (fat lot of good a degree and 20 years of experience is when your shit ass government sells you out). Damned if I do, damned if I don't... I'd say I felt screwed, but I haven't had that, either, for several years (if you saw my fatass wife, you'd know why - enough to make you want to give up sex). But I've got a job right now so I guess I should feel "lucky"! Why don't I? Oh well. Another 20 years of this shit an none of it will matter. Hope my kids have a better life than me and don't marry a worthless partner. If I make sure they learn anything from my low earth orbit existence, it will be to avoid that life-ruining mistake. Wish I had all those years back. All you 20 somethings out there reading this: Don't make the mistake I made and marry a burden! You're better off single! Bleh.
