My boyfriend just finished writing out our bills for the month. He asked me to lick the envelopes. I said that I'd just use a sponge and a tad of water instead, since licking envelopes is on par with eating soap.

He fuh-reeked out, saying that I was going to 'ruin his hard-worked-on bills by splashing water all over the fucking envelopes,' and that I have to 'do my half' by licking the glue.

When I took the four envelopes into the kitchen and wetted them with the sponge, he yelled at me from the other room, "Slane! SLANE! STOP! DON'T! DAMNIT SLANE!"

During all of this, I thought he was kidding. Nope. He's dead-fucking serious. He's honestly pissed off at me that I sealed them with water instead of lapping up the glue with my tongue.

1) How mad am I allowed to be in return of his ridiculous tirade?
2) What's the stupidest thing somebody has ever gotten mad at you for?

If you had to choose, would you rather be a prostitute or a porn star? Why?

(For clarification, let's say that as a prostitute, you wouldn't need to trudge the streets in the dodgy part of town every night, but you wouldn't exactly be Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman either. As a pornstar, you'd be fairly successful, but again, not mega rich.)

Investigated?

Have you ever been questioned by the police/FBI as part of an investigation?
(Yes or No is good if you don't want to share details or whatever, although juicy details are highly preferred).

I was watching some show where a detective is going around questioning neighborhoods...and you see this in movies/tv a lot, but I've never had this happen to me before.

IF YOU HAVE: Was it in that room with a two way mirror and table, or was it just an at your door questioning?

Bus Vs. Mercedes

This morning, while taking the bus to work, I witnessed a true people-are-stupid moment. The bus takes a very tight right turn, and there are NO PARKING signs at this very busy intersection which leaves, just barely, enough room for the bus to turn. An EB in a Mercedes, however, had just pulled into the no parking spot, causing the bus driver to curse, slam on his breaks, and lay on the horn. The woman (I had the impression of medium-length curly hair) initially refused to move, but the bus obviously could not go anywhere, and was still blocking the intersection of 5 streets. Cue much grumbling from us lovely passengers and some other irate honking. After a two-minute stalemate, the car whipped out of the spot, around the legally parked car in front of her, and into the open (albeit metered, but they all are) spot ahead of the parked car.

1. a) Have you ever parked in a no parking zone to avoid paying a meter? b) Did you piss off a whole bunch of people when you did so?

2. If the Mercedes had been unattended, what would you do if you were the bus driver?

Edit: 3. What other sort of parking or bus fiascoes have you witnessed or participated in?

Pets!

1)  I just moved into a new apartment, and for the first time I am living alone.  Now, I like living alone, but I wouldn't be opposed to pet companionship.  I am pretty sure that dogs are out of the question (though, I saw a neighbor with a small dog yesterday so maybe that would change).  I am also not fond of kittens because of a previous experience with a former room mate.  I have had pets in the past, cats, dogs, rats and other small rodents - so I am familiar with them, but I would like to try something - different (boy that sounds bad). 

I've narrowed it down to something like:  Birds, rabbits, ferrets, gerbils (various rodents).  Does anyone have any experience with these types of animals?  Would rabbits and ferrets really stink up my apartment?  What do you suggest for a good pet?

2)  What would be your ideal pet?

3)  What was your first pet?

4)  Would you show pictures of past and current pets?

TQC,

My new job cocktail serving is trying to force me to work five 11 hour shifts a week, which last from 4pm to around 2-3am. I've decided to jump ship seeing as 1. I informed them at my interview that I could only work 4 shifts, 2. HR told me upon hiring that I would only be working approx. 30 hours, and 3. I am a full time student, even over the summer and the shifts they expect me to work are at times when I have class. The manager giving me the most hassle over this was one of my interviewers, so he knows! And now he claims he would never have hired me if I couldn't work 5 shifts. I am sensing some srs bullshit.

So far, my plan has been to stay there and collect my training pay while I send my resume out to other places and interview elsewhere. I will work when I can work, because now I don't really care.

Does this sound like a good plan to you? Should I just leave?

Rocket Robin hood Question

I don't expect most to know what I am talking about.

I have a vivid memory from my childhood watching the Mighty Hercules and Rocket Robin hood adventure hour and that during the opening sequence, there is a scene of Friar Tuck sitting on a speeding rocket, taking a bite out of various food items, like apples, and a turkey leg and then throwing it behind him.

I went to Youtube and watched the opening sequence posted, but it didn't have that in it, I also don't remember it being in colour.

The Question.

1a. Was there a scene in Rocket Robin hood of Friar Tuck riding on a rocket eating stuff and throwing it behind him?

1b. Can you find a link to a video of it?


Question 2: Hercules, why did he only have the strength of 10 ordinary men, why not extraordinary men? why only 10 men?


Question 3: Am I dating myself for having actually watched these? granted not in 1969...

Stain Removal

Today I was sitting at my boss' desk, checking his e-mail (he's on vacation), and doing some other work on his computer. As I never wear my glasses, I was leaning over the desk to see the screen better.

When I left his office, a co-worker exlaimed, "Woah! What is that!"

I had a large, rust-colored stain on the front of my shirt. It's paint. From my boss' desk. It was painted to match his furniture, and it doesn't look like the job was quite "finished", because seriously -- that should NOT happen.

Anyway, I now have this fist-sized rust-colored paint stain on my shirt, and I want it GONE. What would be the best way to remove this stain? I've done nothing with it so far. It's not soaked in or anything; it's literally just a rubbed-off paint stain, not from wet paint or anything (though my shirt may have been slightly damp because of the lame faucest we have in the bathroom, which probably didn't help much at all).

So, suggestions on how to remove this damn stain?

I'm traveling to Boston from NYC in two weeks and I need to bring my dog with me. She's a 4-month old yorkiepoo who weighs less than 5 pounds and I have a carrying case for her (that's approved by a bunch of airlines). The bus (Greyhound) and the train (Amtrak) both say on their websites that no dogs are allowed.
Anyway, is there another way using public transportation that I can get from NYC to Boston with a dog? Or, is it possible to sneak a tiny dog onto the bus or train?
The train is ridiculously expensive but probably cheaper than boarding my dog for a week or so. Speaking of, do you know of any discounts for the train? I'm a student and I have a student ID but not their student card.

How many days should I book off?

This is a question aimed towards those of you who have had thier wisdom teeth out!

I just found out that in a few weeks, I need to go in to have 2 of my wisdom teeth surgically removed.

I'm not sure how many days to book off from work though. I originally was thinking only two, but some people think I should take off more. To those of you who have had the surgery, how many days do you think would be reasonable to book off?

ETA: I waitress as a job. The teeth will be surgicalled removed, as they are still under the gums, and I will be prescribed tylenol 3 as a painkiller, which make me nauseaus (i've had to take them before)

Ageism...or something like that

TQC,
Here's one for you.

1 - Is there an age limit (as far as older than you are) to who you think you could hang out/socialize with?

2- If  so, what is it and why?

3-  On the other side of things is there an age limit (other than legal) as to how much younger than you are the person could be?

4-   If so, what is it and why?


Here are my answers:

1- I don't think so.

2-  Because anyone older than I am is bound to have some good ideas as to how to get through the rest of it.  Can't put a price on that.

3- Probably.

4- Under 25, mainly because I'm in my mid-30's and the life that you experience under 25 is so much different from the life you live in your 30's.  I have made exceptions of course...there are some extraordinary people in that age group with a larger world view.

Calling customer service

Or as Clark Howard like to call it: "customer no-service." I have had to call a variety of corporate customer service centers lately, from fixing a car insurance problem to student loan issues. Most have been OK, but the Comcast customer service and SallieMae were two of the offenders: both I assume routed me to call centers outside the US to people that did not have the best grasp of the English language, making the solving of my problems harder than it should have been. I just wish that large corporations would keep their customer service call centers inside the US, with primary language English speakers. Is that too much to ask?

1) If you are religious/spiritual/believe in God, do you look down on those who don't? Does it bother you when people look down on you for believing?

2) If you are not any of the above, do you look down on those who do? Does it bother you when people look down on you for not believing?

1) I do believe in God, but I really don't care if other people do or do not. It's a personal choice, and I have no reason to try and convince people otherwise, or care that they don't. I do get bothered when people look down on me for believing in God, because I don't think they have any right to. But I feel the same about people looking down on those who don't believe.

Lets say money is not an issue and I provide transportation to and from the party - to prevent drunk driving.  Would I be responsible for what someone does after they're dropped off?  I guess my real question is WHEN does the responsibility end for the host?

This is obscure: For those of you in college, have you ever attended an informational meeting about studying in Chile? (I'm not looking for information, just wondering!) What area of Chile?

What was the best game to play on the playground when you were young?

Sorry to add to the influx of phone questions but I've been driving myself insane with researching tonight!

Basically, I want a new phone but there are too many brands and models to choose from!

Which are the loudest and clearest phones in terms of making calls? Does it matter if they're flip as opposed to normal "candy bar" shape?

Stupid being hearing impaired and not being able to just choose a phone based on the "oh purdy" factor alone :P

I haven't had a cigarette in three days and I think my body hates me, but it just might be me getting sick.

My whole body hurts and I just ate a full meal and I feel like I'm going to puke everywhere. Ugh.

So, I guess my questions for the smokers/ former smokers are
1. How many times have you tried to quit (or how many times did it take you before you were succesful?)
2. How did YOUR body hate you?

Inspired by a comment to a post below...

1) Do you have a height 'limit' for the people you date, either up or down? Why?

2) Do you prefer curly or straight hair?

3) Dark or light eyes?

4) Any other requirements/preferences, be they strange or not? (Besides the basic :sense of humor, nice guy, etc, etc)

5) Good road trip music? I leave after class tonight.

Q ownership: no, that's MINE!!!!! and a "news" Q

hey TQC,

this is inspired by an earlier post [about liking various shoes];

(1) do you feel like certain topics or types of questions belong to/should only be asked by certain TQC members?
(2) do you only ask certain types of questions in TQC?
(3) do you only respond to certain types of question in TQC?

finally,
(4) do you watch your local news show? (like KTVU Channel 2 News)
(5) do you watch "national" news shows? (like on CNN, MSNBC, Daily Show)

moreso,
(4/5b) if so, do you prefer one over the other?
(4/5c) if the news shows give conflicting info, do you trust one over the other? why?

as always, entertaining answers/snark is expected.

Vegan food?

I'm going out to dinner with a vegan tonight and because of traffic their running late and we can't go where we had originally planned on. I'm trying to look for other options for us and I'm not entirely sure what type of food is ok or where we can go? The original plan was to go get Thai food, but since they might not be here till 8 or 9pm most of those restaurants will close just then. So yea what types of dishes should the restaurant serve so I can know what places to look for?

Hi, TQC!

Ooookay. I'm a writer and I'm planning to create a journal strictly for posting my work stuff on. Anybody have any clever ideas for a writing-themed username? (Pirates are good too!)

Books is stupid. They is too intemalektual.

I've got some books here that have caused me a lot of pain, thanks to a certain special philosophy class of mine.
Their pages are covered in highlighter, underlined all over the place, and have been angrily written on. They can't be resold or donated to a library. Truth be told, I'm pretty set on incinerating them as a thank you for all the headaches they caused me.
But... I feel somewhat guilty about just burning them. It's just soo unoriginal!

So, horrified bibliophiles and the rest of TQC, how should I destroy them?
(As an alternative, they'd be free to anyone willing to suffer their presence.)

What was the last thing you thought about in order to approach orgasm?

Do you use your front teeth or corner teeth to open things like ketchup packets?
Edit: I mean, when you DO use your teeth as tools, do you use the front teeth or corner teeth?

Do you face towards or away from the water in the shower?

What is your favorite kind of tamale?

Would you laugh at somebody if you saw them using an outdated iPod Mini? What about a Discman? What about a walkman?

Do you know anybody who wears a toupee or a wig? Do they think nobody knows?

1.  Where do superheroes/villains get their mad spandex (or whatever) suits? I'd reckon they wouldn't be the easiest thing to sew.. Or is there someone who sews the costumes for them? Do you have to kill that person after they have finished the suit in attempts to hide your true identity??

2. This has been bothering me for like a week now.  Am I thinking this too much?

uninstalling aol on vista

I just got a new computer that uses Windows Vista. How do I uninstall all the AOL crap that came preloaded on it? I tried going through the control panel, but there's nothing AOL on the programs and features page at all. Also, when I open program files, there's an installer, but not an uninstaller. And, no the installer doesn't have an uninstall feature on it.

I work at a day care. We close at six.

There was a little boy this evening that, when I drove by work at seven o'clock this evening, was still there. (His teacher's car was still parked there...)

Would you worry that something awful happened, and that's why his mother wasn't there?

Or would you get pissed off at her for (allegedly) not taking care of her child and taking advantage of the fact that we wouldn't leave her kid alone to go do her own thing?

I started to dislike this online friend because he said things that pissed me off. I didn't talk to him for a long time, and today he spoke to me. He said I didn't initiate conversation with him and yada yada. Okay, so I spoke to him for a bit, half-heartedly with lots of one line answers. after 4 hours or so I talked to him saying something along the lines of hey I am talking to you now and he thanked me sarcastically. Now I feel really bad for being an asshole but I don't feel like apologising.

Should I let this go?
What would you do?

PS: I suspect part of the reason why he spoke to me was to flaunt the fact that he got a girlfriend.

I've just found some fabulous icons (of a liberal, leftie, anti-war, snarky-towards-religion type nature) which are bound to upset a certain portion of my f-list. Should I bugger the consequences and use them anyway?

What would you do if someone on your f-list was using a politically motivated icon that got you hot under the collar?

Do you ever run into problems with people on your f-list whose political or religious opinions are completely at odds with your own?

I'm taking the SATs for the first time tomorrow. (I took the SAT 2s before.)
I stopped reviewing now but don't know what to do with myself till I go to bed. There isn't anything good on tv here.

Should I start studying for finals?(that start thursday)
Should I just read a good book?
Should I waste my time online?
Or something even better? What?

Does anybody here watch TLC's What Not To Wear?

Have you ever nominated anyone to be on it?

Do you know anybody who should be nominated?

If you were nominated, would you go or would you be pissed that your friends think you look stupid and decided to use a national tv show to tell you?

I don't drink alcohol but maybe twice or thrice a month, if that (there's some months where I don't drink anything), and even then, I drink maybe only one (or on very rare occasions, two) glasses of something.

But when I do drink, I get abdominal pains. Is there a reason for this? It's usually with stuff that has a harder liquor, not so much with wine (unless I drink more than one glass).

I ask because I just had a marguerita at a friend's birthday dinner but my abdominal area is hurting like a mofo. It's rather uncomfortable. :(

i. What's the proper salutation to use when writing a letter to a nun?

ii. Does anybody have any creative employment or money-earning ideas for someone who hates retail/customer service and phones, is a musician with no gigging/band/recording experience, a music teacher with two and a half years of experience, and is an undergrad teacher ed student with a passion for special ed? I'm looking for seriously off-the-wall but still feasible ideas, and no I'm not going to sell toast art on ebay. Running away and joining the circus isn't an option either. (Although I did get a call one time from a circus act looking for an organ player. True story. Paid well, too.)

iii. How do you de-stress after an exceptionally shitty day, knowing you're walking straight into a mess you have to straighten out tomorrow? I find that I fall asleep very stressed out during my work week and toss and turn all night.
