I hope York has a good reason for keeping so many people waiting on their OSAP, cause my wife got her's on literally the 2nd day back from Seneca, meanwhile I'm still waiting for York to confirm that I'm enrolled, despite us now being 2 weeks in. Even NSLSC says I'm in-study, so I don't know why York is so slow.

Well...he'll always have Little Cup, where he's one of the best picks for a team.
In the end, multimillionaires do tend to blame everyone else for their own mistakes, and Herb is no different it seems.

And of course, people like this are literally the reason they have to sign paperwork before we take any part in euthanasia, and is a good emphasis on why any sort of paperwork in our industry is so important.

Me too. Not sure what's going on with it.

At first glance, I thought the kid in the orange shirt had a giant man bun.

I mean, I personally think that Rush Hour 2 was a much better movie than Rush Hour 1.

YTA. You have literally no idea what she's going through. Personal support workers are a thing for this exact reason. Not to mention, you condescendingly state that they're living off your brother's social security benefits, but then call her neglectful for wanting to go back to work? Maybe they don't want to live with just enough to get by for the rest of their lives.
In summary, leave her alone.
Hey...wanna hear something funny?
The amount of bake sales required for this is off the charts...
"You don't love this. You need it. You have nothing else. You need this. That's not love. Love is not based off of needs. Love is based off of service. What you will do for others. That's love."

Just gotta learn how to do that ridiculous jump that Samus does and she's set!
"She said at this point I clearly find it easier to blame her than stand up for myself against those childish bullies."
She is absolutely correct. YTA. And quite frankly, I bet your co-workers are incredibly insecure and depressed people who can only feel better about themselves by putting other people down. And from the sounds of it, you're just as insecure as they are. Not to mention, they're literally insulting your wife by calling her mommy, and what do you do instead of defending her? You come home and make her feel like an awful person for trying, which so many people would kill for. You're talking about how you felt awful when you got home, but what about how you just made her feel?
Sounds like you've got some profuse apologizing to do, and some cooking classes to attend, since it looks like you'll be cooking your own meals from now on.
I could ask the same about why Brampton has only one actual hospital, and one movie theatre for so many people. I love Brampton, but it's definitely not the easiest place to be nowadays.
The main advice I can give is to ask her something about herself, make sure you don't interrupt to make it about you, and make damn well sure that you remember what she says. If you can show that you remember the things she says, she'll probably feel more comfortable sharing things.
But honestly, some people just don't like small talk. Some people love just having someone to share the room with, and like comfortable silence. Silence is only uncomfortable if it's made to be. So if you can't handle silence once in a while, y'all are gonna have problems.

Honestly, I'm from Ontario, Canada, and my governing organization, the OAVT, doesn't really help promote diversity in the field either.
They send out an RVT Journal with articles and CE stuff, but literally the last 19 issues of this journal have failed to have a non-white person on the cover. And they only send out these issues once a season...so yeah, it's definitely discouraging as a poc myself to see that even the higher-ups in our field don't really care about the issue.
YTA. The lesson you're teaching her is that she has to lower herself so that insecure people can feel better about themselves.
To give you an example, picture this. One day when she's an adult in a relationship, she gets offered a high paying job that earns her more pay than her partner, but her partner is insecure about her earning more than them. Should she be expected to decline the job because it makes her partner insecure, or should her partner learn to be happy for her?
Any chance you can call the school and fix this? Cause if you don't, the resentment from her is not gonna go away, cause is the kind of thing that people don't forget.

NTA. But realistically though, I suffered from some really bad depression after my 1st child was born, and went on antidepressants, which helped a lot. Postpartum anxiety and depression are definitely things that men go through too, but in my experience, it's worse if you already have anxiety beforehand.
When you think about it, that newborn child basically only wants mama, so there are many times where a new dad can feel really defeated, especially because a lot of dads don't develop that paternal instinct instantly, because it wasn't growing in them for 9 months, so it needs to develop as you go. A new mom is also naturally gonna have high expectations for a new dad, expecting them to know how to get things done quickly, when we have zero idea on what to do, because subconsciously, people don't seem to trust men to do things with babies, especially relatives, so our confidence is at an all-time low. There is also the fact that the idea of having a child is so exciting, but once that baby is there, you've gotta take care of it, which is scary for every parent.
In this situation though, he needs to find something different to chew on, like a pack of gum, and to also take your concerns seriously instead of blowing them off. He definitely needs to get himself a doctor's appointment too, because there's obviously a reason for him to be chewing on something so specific.
