By Anonymous - Mongolia
Today, I spoke to my dad for the first time in over a year. I've been volunteering in Mongolia, I have no running water, freeze my ass off everyday and communication with anyone who speaks English is scarce. One of the first things my father said to me was, "out of sight, out of mind." FML

She could have visited her dad or went to a different area in Mongolia. Besides, while volenteering you don't get any thing better than the people your helping. So of course she went somewhere else. God, people use logic and think.


yah ik! i mean you've just talked to your dad in over a year, you have no heat or running water, yet you have access to a computer? just email people who speak english or something! or go on facebook...i'm calling this one fake.

If communication is hard then of course its rare that you communicate with your dad. On the other hand, you do this to yourself of course. If you don't like it you could go back home and do some voluntary work there.

I bet he still had you in his mind once and a while.

I have friends who went away for the Peace Corps, to far off countries without any means of communication, and come back and get pissed that people forgot about them.

Maybe you should have volunteered in America, where people need PLENTY of help, before going to effing Mongolia.


umm i'm pretty sure there are people in America that could help others (cough cough) and Mongolia is more rural and maybe there aren't people around to help. America has enough rich bastards to help the freaking unfortunate who are IN America. jesus and don't bash on someone who is helping others, you're not doing anything but sitting on your ass in front of your computer.

fake because:
first of all, Ulaanbaatar is the capital and it most definitely has running water. "The average summer temperature is +20c (+65F) . Winter is –20c (-13F) ." that's what you'd call cold? Mongolia is in the same hemisphere so it's summer there too.


Yes, it's in the same hemisphere, but where she's staying is also in the mountains, which will automatically make the location colder, no matter what hemisphere it's on. Besides, how do you know it has running water. Even in the biggest cities in America, there are some areas with no running water or functioning heat.

God I hate it when idiots decide to call fake.

how much do you know about mongolia exactly? she's not staying in the mountains, she's staying in the capital. it has running water because... it does?
here's an example they shut off water for 3 days so they must've had it in the first place. and that's not even the capital
go do your research before calling someone an idiot


I DID do my research IDIOT. The capital is in the mountains, look it up on a fucking map.

That is all I am going to say
