I think I just need to get this out of my system.
I’ve posted before about the issues I’ve been having with my sister. How she’s not very responsible and well, just a straight up dumbass.
Well, I live in Minnesota. Last night we got well over 10 inches of snow, underneath this snow is a good solid 2 inches of ice. The STATE said “If you DO NOT have to drive, DON’T!”. Us Minnesotans know how to drive in bad weather, but this… this is extreme. Not to mention, I drive a full size 4WD pick up and I still almost called into work!
I’ve been trying to mend things with my sister, pretend like our fights never happened etc. As I was texing her today, a picture of a Semi-truck jack-knifed on the highway she was telling me how “bad the roads were” on her 60 mile drive…. TO SEE HER BOYFRIEND! She wants to be treated as an independent adult but yet makes decisions to risk her life just to see her boyfriend. AND if he “LOVES” her so much… WHY ON EARTH would he let her drive honest to God- risking her life just so they can spend a few hours together.
I’m a protective sister. I love my sister, even though she is a complete idiot and if anything happened I’d of course be devistated. BUT COME ON?!

@Katie918: Some people have NO common sense. I have come to realize this and accept it. There’s not talking them out of things, theres no sense rationalizing with them… they just don’t get it.
I had an old roommate/friend (very smart – worked in the financial world) and she was the biggest DUMBASS I had ever met when it came to common sense. She actually caused a car crash (texting) and then asked the tow truck driver to take her on her first date even though her car was totaled and the police wanted to call an ambulance to have her checked out.
Well..she went on the date, the guy drove her home and then I spent 6 hours in the ER with her because she had a BROKEN sternum. That’s right…broken sternum and still going on a date instead of to the hospital…like…what?!?!?!

@weatherbug: Its good to know that she’s not the only dumbass, but that almost makes it worse to know that there are more of them out there! She was so book smart in school but even now at 21 she doesn’t even have the common sense to look both ways before crossing a street!
Good grief, I know I can’t talk any sense into her and I think thats why I had to post something to vent.
