Day 2594: People you’re stuck with

Yesterday I stuck this up on my white board at work:


We then made a list of people we were stuck with, including  family members, co-workers, neighbors, and the current President of the United States.

Who are the people you’re stuck with?  How do you deal with them?

Does it help to know that

  • you’re not alone being stuck with people?
  • you can try to limit your contact with the challenging people you’re stuck with?
  • those people are stuck with difficult people too?
  • you can focus on self-love and self-care even when you’re stuck with people?

Now you’re stuck with my other photos from yesterday.







I don’t mind being stuck with my husband Michael, who sticks healthy and delicious meals on our plates.

I also don’t mind being stuck in traffic listening to Bernadette Peters singing “Some People” from Gypsy:

Now I’m hoping some people stick some comments, below, about this “People You’re Stuck With” post.

Thanks for sticking with me, people, through so much!

  1. I don’t mind being stuck in bed under a pile of comforters, with a cup of coffee in my hand and a book on my lap

  2. The people you feel stuck with probably have the same feeling about you, so I figure it’s a wash, Ann. Be careful on our east coast snow. Don’t get stuck, my friend.

  3. Carla Coco

    I like that quote by, Martin Luther King. We all have the same fundamental desires, but pursue them in different ways. We’re all stuck with that person in the White House ( I’m not rewarding him by calling him president), so whenever I see him on TV , I just change the channel. I would like to know more about this encantation he has over the Republican Senators. Other Repulican presidents were not this sinister/ OR, is he threatening their lives, like the Godfather towards his soldiers?? I just would like to know./ Have a nice day, Ann

  4. I know some people can get you into sticky situations which is why one of my favorite sayings is that a good friend will bail you out of jail in the middle of the night, but a really good friend will be in the cell next to you saying, “Well, that was fun.”

  5. I’m stuck with being a Rat, and I’m happy with that!

  6. I am thinking of the song “Happy to be stuck with you” which is how I feel about Tim

  7. Oh, rats! I’m stuck with my annoying hubby! LOL! ˉ̶̡̭̭ ( ´͈ ᗨ `͈ ) ˉ̶̡̭̭

  8. I have a feeling that you might write a song about being stuck with a certain person you were hoping not to be stuck with. I bet the person you are happy to be stuck with will cook you a really lovely supper while you write it.

  9. I remember that song. 🙂

  10. I laughed at your reference to the President. Dear God! I practically stop breathing when I think of him. BUT, if I take him out of the equation, I don’t feel too stuck. Being retired after years of cooperative learning and working environments allows me a better chance of being quite selective. Now I have to just hope other people don’t feel stuck with ME! 🙂

  11. Interesting reading this now with what’s going on in the world now. I’m glad I’m stuck with the man I love and he loves me. At the beginning of all of this social isolation my husband jokingly said ‘it’s a good thing we like each other’. Isn’t that the truth. I can’t imagine living with someone you don’t like especially in these trying times.
