one simple job whilst the weather was nice wash the bedding it's been a long time since the weather was good enough to dry a quilt. And clean bedding every now and then would be nice one simple job yeah right first the spin cycle stuck at 9 mins on quilt no error message just a quilt going round and round and round and round....
Switched the power off in hope that it would reset and the door would open nope.
So in vain I googled the problem and cleaned the water filter and then the door unlocked but my quilt was covered in little brown dots so back in it went and left it came back the kitchen was flooded a inch of water turns out when I screwed the filter back in I crossed the thread Image so I have spent much of the day mopping and I stink of fabric cleaner

There's worse you could stink of.

Sorry to hear of your washing problems Ghost.

Aw darn washing machines! They do it on purpose, I'm sure of that! Glad to hear it's all working again.

I'm a bit frustrated because when it comes to growing backbone, I am among the people who probably have a groth deficit. :icon-rolleyes: Why can't I talk normally to people on the phone? Or just like... actually talk to someone properly? I was supposed to ask for a pay raise for some private person me and a friend are making flyers, folders and booklets for (because the amount they're paying us now is laughably small, especially since we are going to be fully qualified graphic designers in four weeks time, damn it!), but I couldn't stand in for myself and demand they give us a raise, but instead turned into a little scared mouse and stammered my way through "You know... we were thinking... it would be nice if we... well... got some more.. money?". :doh: As I always do when I'm supposed to stand up for myself. People who have a gift with words are so lucky. :) Like my friend. She then had a 10 minute long phone conversation and the deal was done. *sigh*

If there is a class for handling conversations with other human beings, please sign me up! :roll: That is by far the most difficult thing about life when you're socially awkward. :oops: And I mean 'awkward' in a sense of genuinely being scared of face-to-face conversations. And then people accuse you of being arrogant because you're too scared to show emotions in public. And that makes you even more scared.

Or is that just a teenage thing?

Funny thing I noticed aswell is that my self-confidence takes a leap when I speak English than to when I speak German. Is that weird? Does anyone else get that when they're not speaking their native language?

Cheery, I know exactly where you are coming from there as I used to be the same. I actually cured it by joining my local philatelic society (I was a stamp collector in my teens) and members regularly gave talks to the club about their collections and we had visitors from other clubs. They also had a night called '5 sheets' where lots of members each put up five pages from their collections and spoke to the club about them for a couple of minutes. I decided to have my first go at this when I was 14 and managed my couple of minutes and everyone was so kind about it even though as a teenager I hardly had the sort of collection that would interest senior collectors, most of which had built up highly specialised collections over many decades, and frankly I was pretty bad. From there I built up slowly over the years until in my early twenties I became the youngest ever president of the club and was faced with the challenge of Presidents Night where I had to present on my own for over 2 hours which I'm glad to say went well. I eventually joined the list of national speakers and travelled all over the place giving talks on my speciality.

That early and continuing encouragement from the 50 or so club members all of whom were much older than me was so important and hopefully you will find your own chance to learn confidence within a supportive group whatever that may be.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
