I am finding myself coming onto the coffee room more often than I like, usually because I want updates on threads. What should I do? I feel like this is becoming an addiction!!!!!!
If you think I should stop coming on, say STOP!!! ✋September 10, 2017 9:26 am at 9:26 am #1359456CTLAWYERParticipant
Listen to poppa>>>>>>>>>>>>
You must learn patience, your generation expects instant gratification and you’ll not find it here.
Many members visit the CR daily, but we have lives and can’t answer on demand. We are not following on our smartphones and running to answer every ding. We have professional and business lives we live.
I am not picking on you, BUT
Motzei Shabbos you posted a new thread addressing a question to me at 11:06 PM
You bumped the thread at 7:52 AM Sunday morning when I had not answered you.
Last night, Mrs. CTL and I were out visiting friends after Shabbos and I wouldn’t be on the CR at that time.
At 7:52 this morning I was still at minyan, it starts later on Sundays OOT.
I came home saw your post and crafted an answer.
Read the CR once a day when you have time, do not let it become a diversion from study, work, family

Don’t let it become an addiction. I myself was having trouble in this field. I went totally off the CR for 3 weeks just to make myself get off it.
The Poppa (not PBA, but the Zeidy of the CR) CTL is absolutely right.September 10, 2017 9:59 am at 9:59 am #1359547GG boyParticipant
And btw thanks alot. You’ve just inspired me to get off and do something more productive for the next hour.September 10, 2017 10:14 am at 10:14 am #1359561Neville ChaimBerlinParticipant
“You must learn patience, your generation expects instant gratification and you’ll not find it here.”
Your generation is weak and forgetful and cannot figure out how to use basic technology.
I don’t actually mean what I just said, but how do you like it when the shoe is on the other foot? Do people have nothing better to do than spread conspiracy theories about how young people all think as one collective brain?September 10, 2017 10:54 am at 10:54 am #1359608☕️coffee addictParticipant

Sorry pops 😒
Didn’t mean it- I just didn’t want the thread to get lost
Sorry if you feel that waySeptember 10, 2017 10:54 am at 10:54 am #1359599
Neville- I wouldn’t be so personal,
But it does bother me that some people who are older than me , such as teachers etc… think that they were perfect “youngstas” themselves. They go on and on about the chutzpah and they don’t remember how they were when they were children
CTL- I’m not talking abt youSeptember 10, 2017 11:46 am at 11:46 am #1359640
” think that they were perfect “youngstas” themselves”
I think you are misunderstanding their point. Most comments like that aren’t people saying that they themselves were perfect, they are pointing out that 40 years ago (or 50, 60…) young people as a whole would never speak like that (act like that etc) toward older people. Whether we like it or not, times have changed and many things regarding morals and values have not gotten better. When teenagers make snide comments to an adult, it is hard to not be taken aback because it is not something that had been acceptable or present as a general occurrence just decades ago.September 10, 2017 1:08 pm at 1:08 pm #1359661CTLAWYERParticipant
@Geordie613 Thank you
@NevilleChaimBerlin There have been many scholarly studies about today’s youth and desire for instant gratification. I make no judgment when I point this out to Daddysgirl. My generation, baby boomers, grew up when news came in a daily newpaper or hourly newscast on the radio. Nightly network news on TV was only 15 minutes and stations signed off overnight.
As for technology, I learned computer programming back when computers used punchcards and have kept up.
My advice to Daddysgirl was fatherly and said with love, she took it the right way and B”H will learn from it. Patience is acquired through the aging process and life experience.September 10, 2017 1:17 pm at 1:17 pm #1359673👑RebYidd23Participant
Daddysgirl, once a CR poster, always a CR poster.September 10, 2017 1:17 pm at 1:17 pm #1359674
Yea, whateverSeptember 10, 2017 1:30 pm at 1:30 pm #1359689
” she took it the right way and B”H will learn from it”
…or maybe notSeptember 10, 2017 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #1359698
Excuse me syag…. I took it the right way so shaSeptember 10, 2017 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #1359705
but you seem to be missing a few key points about respect and how to speak to people….so yaSeptember 10, 2017 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm #1359723
Ooooh I’m so burned….. NOTTTT!!!!September 10, 2017 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm #1359759WinnieThePoohParticipant
It’s a natural outcome of an anonymous online forum- natural barriers are removed, so a teenager can be talking to a respected Zeidy like a peer, when normally that would not be happening in real life.
By the way, Daddysgirl, does this mean the welcome party on the other thread is over?September 10, 2017 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm #1359816
WTP – that’s brings up two points,
1. natural outcome sounds like something wholesome, are you saying it is inevitable and okay?
2. I think by 5th grade peers don’t speak that way to each other either.September 10, 2017 5:08 pm at 5:08 pm #1359830
Winnie- you didn’t welcome me anyhow so what difference will it make for you?September 10, 2017 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm #1359844
Syag, what did I say that you were so insulted by?
Really, I wanna know so that I can fix it.September 10, 2017 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #1359848
you answered back twice without knowing what you were responding to?September 10, 2017 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #1359861
Huh? 🤷♀️September 10, 2017 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm #1359864
Here, I’ll lay it out – –
CT said you were taking his advice and learning from it and your response to him was:
I commented on that not being an appropriate way to respond to him, and that it didn’t seem to support CT’s claim that you were accepting his advice.
Your response to me was to “sha”
so I said you seemed to be missing a few key points about respect
your response was:
“Ooooh I’m so burned….. NOTTTT!!!! ”
Hopefully you can figure it out from there…..September 10, 2017 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm #1359875
K anyways, I’m not looking to fight. I’m sorry that I said some things in a sarcastic/ jokey way but you didn’t realize…. I should’ve realized that people from older generations take things very seriously and literally.September 10, 2017 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm #1359871
When I said yea whatever, first of all I was saying it the girly way- flips hair and says yea, whatever. Second of all, I WAS TALKING TO REBYIDD who
said once a cr poster, always a cr poster.
Maybe some ppl need to look inside themselves and learn how to be dan lekaf zchus.September 10, 2017 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm #1359884
yea, whateverSeptember 10, 2017 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #1359892
Back to op: should I stay or not? If I get more than 20 stops, I’ll stop . So far I have two stops. Anyone else?September 10, 2017 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #1359890
But anyways, you made me feel all warm and cuddly inside when you screamed at me 😏Thanx I feel truly welcomed by youSeptember 10, 2017 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm #1359898

Stop!September 10, 2017 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #1359985Neville ChaimBerlinParticipant
No, “yeah whatever” is 100% the correct response.
Some older people think it’s just open season to spread all kinds of false garbage about younger generations and the second we dispute it we’re “disrespecting our elders.” They’re only proving the point. They can dish it out all day long, but they can’t take the heat. The lesson is, don’t be that way when you’re older. What’s changed is that we have internet anonymity now. What people thought 40 years ago, they can now say behind a CR username. Which brings us back to the OP, I guess.
CT, I’m not talking about you anymore, by the way. Your comment was not that big of a deal.September 10, 2017 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm #1359982
And I thought u wanted the magic hat lol 🎩September 10, 2017 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #1359980
So far I got five stops…. thanx guys🙂 Thanks golfer 🏌
I guess you’re talking from experience…
mod- i am a little scared to stop especially because I have FOMO…. but I guess it’ll be fine- I’ll live
Fifteen more stops neededSeptember 10, 2017 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #1359947NewyorkerMember
