• What features would you include to make the most pleasant motorway service area ever?

    Best answer: First thing I would do is reduce what are in many cases, sky high prices for food and drink. I've noticed that some Motorway service areas do not provide a creche area. I think these are essential, as journeys on some motorways (I'm especially referring to the M6 here) are very long and tiring, especially if you have to... show more
    Best answer: First thing I would do is reduce what are in many cases, sky high prices for food and drink. I've noticed that some Motorway service areas do not provide a creche area. I think these are essential, as journeys on some motorways (I'm especially referring to the M6 here) are very long and tiring, especially if you have to battle through road works. Another thing I would consider is rest areas on the inside, somewhere to put your head down for a nap. Some service areas do offer hotel services, but that usually means staying for the night, and having to pay a premium if a prior booking has not been made. Now I'm not saying don't charge people for putting their head down for 2 hours or so, but if a charge is to be made, it has to be reasonable. This I feel would be a welcome alternative to having a nap in the car, which is often uncomfortable, and not an ideal way of getting rest, especially if 40 ton lorries keep passing close by, or if the rest area is close to the motorway. Move existing rest areas well away from the motorway and where lorries and coaches pass. Information booths need to be regularly maintained and leaflets stocked up. All service areas should provide internet access by coins as well as credit/debit cards. Too many provide card only access. People should not be hurried to finish their meals during busy periods. More space should be built to cater for this.

  • There are someone from Belfast in this community? I´d like to talk with a person from there?

    Best answer: I'm from Belfast. I don't know of a shop called Agair anywhere in Belfast, and have looked on various websites. Is the shop name in Gaelic? If I'm able to help, I'll need more information. You can e-mail me, and I'll try to help.

  • I'm cheating on my husband and I cant stop it help!?

    Best answer: Hi. It seems that you may be trapped in an abusive relationship. Abusive relationships can take different forms. It doesn't have to be violent, but can take the form of emotional abuse such as the kind that you are describing.

    Best answer: Hi. It seems that you may be trapped in an abusive relationship. Abusive relationships can take different forms. It doesn't have to be violent, but can take the form of emotional abuse such as the kind that you are describing. Talking down to you is a form of emotional abuse; not letting you have your say is a form of emotional abuse, always having the last word in an argument is a form of emotional abuse; getting you into debt is a form of emotional abuse; having no friends because he wont let you go out without him is a form of emotional abuse; getting at you through your son is emotional abuse. I could go on and on.... He got you into debt? Does he work? Does he pay for anything, or do you have to fork out for everything? What your 2 friends and his family say are absolutely correct; HE IS A CONTROL FREAK! I really cant say it any louder to you. Telling you he hates your son and calling him a little ****. Does your son hear any or all of this? Have you considered the possibility that your son could be seriously affected by all this? Even though your son calls him "dad", could it be possible that this may be because your partner is trying to be the control freak on your son as well? And of course, although you dont mention it, it could be the possible "But you do know I love you, don't you?" syndrome. Do not be fooled by that. I DO NOT CALL THAT LOVE! I CALL THAT EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL! From someone else I know personally who was in a violent relationship, that's what her then husband kept saying to her. She kept going back to him, and it wasn't until he left her for someone else before the abuse finally stopped. He has since been imprisoned. My fear would be that if you stay with your husband, it's only going to get worse. As for his brother, if you both love each other, go for it. From what you say, your husband does not seem to care about you, otherwise, none of the stuff you mentioned would have happened. I take it that you provided everything you have such as the car and the house? It seems to me that he cares only about himself; in other words, it's all him, him, him, and nothing for you. Personally, I'd rather have nothing than go through that kind of hell (for that's what it is) your husband seems to be putting you through. If you get a moment alone with your son, ask him how he REALLY feels about your husband. If your son says "It's hell", or something like that, or starts crying, I would suggest getting out of the relationship. And if you do leave, seek legal advice from a lawyer who specialises in domestic disputes about how to put a restraining order on your husband. Try and get that moment alone with your son as soon as possible. Going to use some brutal language here. It's time to stop being pushed over by your bully of a husband, and start fighting back. I wish you the best of luck, and hope it all works out for you. :-)

  • Continuing on from my last question, where can I go?

    Best answer: I didn't see this. Perhaps time to cut your losses and run. It will be hard. Speak to your family and tell them of your situation. Even if they are 300 plus miles away, and they cannot help you, I'm sure there are various support groups who could help you out. There is no shame in seeking help. But I repeat what I said.

If you do leave, take legal advice, and get that restraining order placed on him and move as far away as possible from him. LEGALLY, HE CANNOT FORCE YOU TO COME BACK. As I said before, time to stop being defeatist, stand up to the bully, and move on.
