When a relationship isn't the relationship you should be in, what are the warning signs that pile up? Well, most of the time, they're small things that maybe you don't notice until they've gotten huge. And then maybe, sometimes, they're as huge and awful as being sick and your partner literally refusing to help you.

Society is completely based on people taking things for granted. Legit, half of society would collapse if everybody's clocks ran a few minutes off from each other, or gas stations put diesel in the wrong pumps.

Any job in which you are dealing directly with other humans tends to be....unpredictable. Yet you can only be so prepared for what you cannot prepare for. Get ready folks, this one is going to be a bumpy ride.
