Due to a power-hungry boss and abnormal circumstances preventing the fulfillment of a recent requirement at his job, my husband has been fired. Sort of. He's got two options: One, he can get his job back on a "last chance" basis, which essentially means that he's back at the bottom of the pecking order and can be fired for absolutely any infraction. This includes being sick, which he's already been written up for despite having a doctor's note, etc. Note that he'd also be going back under the boss who is already bent on firing my husband because he wants to make a point to the rest of the people under him (problem being that he actually wasn't entirely within his right to fire my husband, so HR went, "Huh? no, no, no.") OR two, he can say "fuck it" and collect unemployment while he looks for another job.
Dilemma? I go to school full time and, thanks to a nasty bout with appendicitis in May (note: he worked for ten hours with an appendix that was about [-] this close to rupturing because they didn't think he was actually sick), we're just getting back on track with bills and payments because he was out of work for a month. The likelihood of him getting another job that will pay anywhere near the same amount is pretty low.
He hates his job and they really treat the employees like cattle. I know I'm supposed to be supportive and all "do what makes you happier!" but I grew up well below the poverty line so the rest of me is quite terrified of winding up there again. HALP!! What would you do??
Do you consider yourself to be more optimistic or more pessimistic?
When you eat your pasta do you spin your fork, use a spoon to aid your fork spinning, dig your fork in and shove whatever is on it in your face, cut it with a knife then shovel or something else that I haven't mentioned?
vodka doesn't go bad, amirite?
today is my birthday and since I'm 'celebrating' it alone, I figured I'd take a swig of Smirnoff green apple vodka. it's been sitting on top of my freezer since New Years.
so y/n.. should I?
i just went to a strip club for the first time tonight! it was really fun. there were dancers (i don't know if "stripper" is PC or not), this one girl who came around to wipe down the poles after every few dancers, and a few other waitresses, who were (barely!) clothed.
so, my question is, do you think that the dancers rotate so that they're the waitresses when it's that week of the month? i should also say that this is a nude strip club, so there's no real way to hide that with no possible leaks.
What is your favorite Youtube video?
What should I do tomorrow, TQC?
How would I be related to my cousin's half-sister? My cousin's mom is my aunt, but my cousin's dad Im not related to. My cousin and her half-sister have the same dad.
I'm sure it's been asked before, but meta questions are always good fun:
1.) Which former TQC regular do you wish would post more often?
2.) Which former TQC regular makes you glad that they don't post much anymore?
3.) If you were a ridiculously large food item, would you be a 30,000lb cheese wheel, or a 14lb bullion cube?
A tattoo that I've had for over six years has become 'raised' in certain areas twice lately. It's never happened before and it doesn't seem to have to do with weather as the other day I was outside and hot and now I'm inside, the temperature hasn't changed, and yet it suddenly 'raised' up.
I googled it and came up with hammering issues and allergic reactions, but neither seemed quite right for something that's been there for so long. What do you think might be causing it?
Also, do you get the joy of smelling dog shit and human piss out on the streets everyday?
My beta fish will not eat the food that's in his bowl. In order to feed him, I have to get the flakes stuck to the glass just above the waterline. He then jumps out of the water and snaps at them until he manages to get the flake in his mouth.
What would cause behavior like this, and why is my fish a psycho?

Your help is greatly appreciated.
Edit: We live in Miami,FL. We've googled it, found one, but w/o overnight shipping, so it won't work.
It's my mom's 40th birthday today. I'm 2,000 miles away, and have a surprise birthday present trip planned for her the end of the month. BUT, today I want to call her and be all cute and whatnot. What should I say to her on the phone (besides just happy birthday)? Should I sing the "happy birthday" song?
Have you ever planned a surprise trip for someone? How did it go?
(*edit* As in, you fly someone somewhere as a present. I'm flying my mom to vegas for a week, and meeting her there since it's just a 4 hour drive for me.)
Are your parents young enough that you could celebrate their 40th with them more as friends than as "parent/child"?
Here is the scenario:
My wife had let her ex boyfriend use her credit card since he was unable to get credit(he was the boyfriend at the time). About a year and a half ago, she called the credit card company up and tried to close it. Since the statements were being sent to his address, he called up the company, pretended to be her and stopped that, without her knowledge. Since then, he has rang up a bill that he is refusing to pay. It has now been turned over to collections. What would happen to him if she called the credit card company, explained the situation and claimed the account was fradulent since the time she tried to close it?
What would you do in this situation?
1. Have you ever felt a consuming need to impress your family? Do you have stories?
2. Do you have a sibling that has done 'better' things than you and gets a significant larger amount of attention and praise from said family? Again, stories?
I'm 19 - almost 20, in college, and no one cares. I know, I know. It's "cry me a river, internet!" But, I'm asking these questions because I've done amazing things for a 19 year old and it frustrates me that my dad and his side of the family (who are, for the record, not active in my life) don't and won't support me. I love my resume, I love what will soon be on it, and I love my potential future. But my family doesn't. They want me to go into medical or business. They praise and spoil my 24 year old law-school-graduate sister like there is no tomorrow. Is this right? Am I somehow seeing their point of view wrong? Would a parent not want their child to do something they love, rather than get a secure job in a mainstream field? It's not like my future is flimsy. My Mom is the only family member who is still active in my life and who supports me. I love her so much.
3. I'm thinking moving to Vegas to work (at an actual business that would benefit me and is related to my field, not some random 9-5) and go to school, TQC. Bad idea, even if I have someone to room with?

So TQC...my birthday's today, and I have an unopened box of presents sitting at the foot of my bed (promised my roommate i'd open the box with her, plus it seems kind of sad to be opening birthday presents by yourself, hehe). What do you think is in there? I'm hoping for a digital camera and some interesting CDs, but I really have no idea what the 'rents got me for my 20th birthday this year, hahah. Any last-minute guesses???
Fairfax county department of taxation is trying to make me register my vehicle in the state of virginia. I am an Alaska resident, serving in the military, and the vehicles that I have are registered and titled in the state of Alaska. She quoted the sailors and soldiers act as the reasoning behind it. I am smelling bs.
Is what fairfax said true?
Alsdo, why was she so rude when I was talking to her? I wasn't rude to her till towards the end of the conversation, after she was for so long.

Who do you think is the greatest bass player ever?
is revenge sweet?
short back story: at my work, we've been getting faxes from this company offering cheap trips to cancun. i called a while back and asked to be taken off the list, but we still get faxes from them. i called again this morning and was treated to a horrible conversation with an exceptionally rude woman who kept insulting me, repeating what she had said in spanish and following that with "in case you don't understand english" (in the rudest possible way). when i asked if i could speak with her supervisor, she said "no, he's busy talking to some old lady." she ended the phone call with "don't call here again, since you don't want to buy anything."
so, my question is, will you guys call this (toll free) number and say whatever makes you happy? even if you just call and hang up, that would be great. the number is one eight hundred four one nine five four three one (i don't want them googling and suing me!).
I know it's really early, but my friends are weird and are throwing a Halloween costume party in September. My boyfriend wants to go as a couple, but I don't wanna go to the store and buy like a $60 costume. Does anyone have any suggestions for easy couple costumes?

If you know it, Jonathan Coulton's song 'Rock and Roll Boy' where he took the tape of the 6 year old boy singing to himself and turned it into a song, what do you think of it? I think it's surprisingly catchy and very clever, though strange.

2) Liquid Paper or White Out? You have to choose between those two.
3) If you've ever had a job where you had to page over an intercom, have you ever gotten the urge to scream something unprofessional over it? Like what? Have you ever actually done it? If so, what did you say/what happened after?
4) Do you prefer spending money on things for yourself, or your place of residence?
What is the strangest thing you ever brought home when you were a little kid?
eta - Also, if you're a parent, what is the strangest thing one of your children has brought home?
1. How do people screw up your first name? (ie, pronunciation/spelling)
2. How do people screw up your last name?
So I read somewhere a while ago that using hand sanitizer from an early age ultimately causes you to get sick later in life because babies and children should be exposed to natural germs so they can build up an immunity to them. Using hand sanitizer prevents that exposure and so later in life, when they eventually do become exposed, they get sick much more easily.
1. Do you think this is true?
2. Do you use hand sanitizer on a regular basis?
3. Would you make your kids (if you have or want kids) use it?
4. Would you stop using hand sanitizer regularly if this were proven true?
To the best of your ability, how would you pronounce "ennui"?

What is unresolved sexual tension?
How do you resolve it when having sex is not an option?
Do you have a name that is commonly spelled different ways? How often do people misspell your name? What name do they always try to spell it as? Do you know anyone else with the same spelling of your name?
for example, my name is Kaycee. pronounced Casey. people misspell my name constantly. and it's always assumed that I spell it Casey (which is understandable, so I don't really mind) and sometimes KC, Kaci, Kasey, etc. and I've never met anyone in real life with the exact same spelling as me.
This is so going to be tl;dr, I know it.
I have two main groups of girlfriends. They don't blend. No worries there.
I got married in March and I had a "bachelorette" party with one of the groups. The other group all had stuff going on. No biggie.
A friend in the group that didn't participate is getting married in October and I'm helping to plan her bachelorette shindig. She wants all of us girls to wear matching shirts that say something like, "Bachelorette Party in Progress" or "Bachelorette Support Crew."
She wants my shirt to say something different (she wants to combine her bachelorette party with a belated bachelorette party for me)to reflect my recently married status.
What the hell should my shirt say? Funny, offensive, sarcastic, all suggestions welcome.
I thought about something like,
"I tried to talk her out of it, but she won't listen" OR,
"one penis for the rest of my life. I didn't think it through"

I'm planning a wedding for next year and trying to find a location is difficult and dates are filling up fast. There's one place we're looking at and they have one July date and two August dates open. One of them is July 19th, my sister's anniversary. This is around the time we'd like to have the wedding.
Do you think it's lame if my sister and I share the same anniversary?
We're 11 years apart and she's thrilled about this whole thing. I think she might like it and think it's a neat coincidence, but I'm not sure.
For those with fish tanks, what kind of fish do you have in there?\
Edit: I'd like to see pictures too if possible!
So, tomorrow, I have to put together and mail out over 500 statements for the reps in my office. This will mean sitting in a small windowless room for 7+ hours with no form of entertainment, even though it's a mindless, boring job. I figure I'll bring my son's MP3 player to keep me busy. But I don't want to listen to music, I'd prefer something more distracting.... so I need to find other things to put on there.
I was thinking either stand up comedy or books on tape. So, TQC, what would you recommend? And where can I find such things- free or buyable with Paypal, please...

Do you have a habit of pulling out your eyelashes too, (sometimes 5 at a time leaving huge bald spots)? How would you say I go about getting rid of this ugly habit?
thank you for your help
You're alone for the night and don't feel like making yourself anything to eat, so you decide to go to your nearest fast-food restaurant and be completely unhealthy, you'll work it off later. You sit down with your food, look out the window, and notice a family of five. Mom, dad, and three little boys. They're standing on the corner holding a piece of cardboard on which they've written, "Need Help - Food Water Shelter - God Bless".
What do you do?
I didn't have any cash on me and saw no ATM around, so I bought them five bottles of water. Another lady bought the kids happy meals.

I was home schooled and received my GED; I've had no problems with just using my GED scores, but I found a college I want to apply to that requires SAT scores. Is there a website that has sites for adult testing for SATs? I know nothing about taking the SATs unless you're in high school. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
What type of (general) advice would you have given to someone (or DID give someone) when you were:
1. Age 4?
2. Age 8?
3. Age 12?
4. Age 16?
5. Age 18?
6. Age 21?
7. Age 25?
You can do 30, 40, whatever, too, (those commas were properly placed!) or you can make up your own increments.
Also keep in mind this is YOU at that age, so it's something you found important then or something you felt everyone should know/do or something you learned at that age.

Who is your favourite comic book character?
For me, it's a competition between Rogue of the X-Men and Deadpool.
I was in a relationship for 4 years so I'm new to the dating scene again. I met a guy a month ago. Schedules didn't mesh. Another guy I liked asked me out. Said yes. Had one date with him. I'm having my second date with him this weekend. First guy called and asked me out for the same night. Said I already had a date. He basically turned my rejection into major drama and informed me that since I was now dating someone else, we cannot go out at all now. Nor can we even be friends. That if I were a nice person, I wouldn't have even considered dating someone else. Keep in mind, this was the first time he had ever asked me out. Now, this is an adult here.
Did I miss something? If someone expresses interest in you, are you then in a committed relationship until you actually go out on your first date? Did the rules of dating change and someone forget to tell me? Did I do something wrong? Or am I just a freak magnet?
*edit* The only reason I told the first guy about my date is because it turns out his band is playing the club my date and I are planning on going to. Any ideas on how to get my date to go somewhere else without creating more drama?
I always forget to ask my doctor this potentially silly question, so here goes....
As you know, there are many countries where you're not supposed to drink the water or even eat the food unless you've been given a shot for things like Hep A and diarrhea and etc. But the people who live in those countries...are they immune from constant exposure to these things? Do they already have Hep A or B and just live with it? Can people who live in Mexico drink the water, for example? If you decided to move to one of these countries, how long would it take until you could drink the water, or is that even possible?
I know I'm a month early, but I'm collecting ideas for a Halloween movie party, so:

We're going to have a fun school year this year (I work in a school).
Some of the female teachers have decided to gang up on one of our male teachers and play practical jokes on him all year long. Except, we can't think of anything to do.
Last year, my partner-in-crime took another teacher's stapler and keys, took them home with her one night, and put them in jello. She then set them out on the other teacher's desk in the morning.
We're looking for things that are easy to clean up, but that can be set up at school or overnight if we take them home.
We share desks in a very large office, but we don't have our own phones or anything there. He does have a desk, filing cabinet, and locked tall cabinet.
What are your ideas guys?
Why is my roommate such a stupid bitch?
Also, what did you have to eat today?

Can anyone recommend a female comedian that isn't Sarah Silverman, Kathy Griffin or Roseanne Barr and who gets laughs because they actually put some thought into their act?
Many thanks for your help :)
Anybody know of any good Spanish language podcasts?
(I don't know a lot of Spanish, I've taken classes, I've studied on my own, and I really think I'm better off just jumping in with what I know and asking questions along the way.)
I have a makeup question. Usually I use the Bare Minerals loose powder as a foundation, and then put some lighter pressed powder from Clinique or I think Maybelline on top of that. But I just ran out of the Bare Minerals stuff and I don't want to buy it anymore, because it's kind of expensive. Can you reccomend any less expensive makeup that would serve the same purpose as what I use the Bare Minerals for? Also, can you reccomend good pressed powder as a top layer, because I don't like the two ones that I alternate using that much, but I don't want to waste money on something that I have no idea about. Preferrably something that you can get at a drugstore, but if it's a department store brand that's somewhat cheapish, that would be helpful too.

If so, what's the school like? What are the kids that go there like?
I heard it was a stoner school, and then I heard it was a really nice school.. Not expecting much, but anything you have to say will probably help. Even the funnies.

For those who are married:
Did you plan anything exclusive at your wedding reception that wasn't traditional (to religious/family/society's standards, or just something not typically found at a wedding)?
What was it?
Did it go well?
What did other people think?
I just heard of someone who had a laid back wedding, and they had room at their wedding reception with hookahs, which was separated by curtains so they wouldn't be completely isolated, and they weren't Indian or Middle-eastern or anything like that...do you think that's too untraditional?
I was channel surfing today and I flipped past a cool music video. There were a couple of people walking around, and they were both wearing t-shirts. The t-shirts had graphics and text on them that changed and interacted as the people were walking. It was obviously computer animated. This seemed to be a techno song, and the name of the song was one word with dots between the letters, something like "x.x.x.x.x". Do you have any idea what I'm talking about?

I'm in serious need of a job and the job hunt has not been going well. I've applied at 25+ places and not one has called me back. So this is where you all come in.
1. How long does it usually take for a place to call you back?
2. Should you call them? Should you even bother if it's only fast food? What about a clothing store?
3. What exactly should you say when you call them?
Is there something at the base of a cat's tail that I don't know about? When I scratch Conan's back, he purrs and lifts his tail, so I scratch at the base and his eyes go super wide, he meows loud and different than usual (but not strangled or hurt in any way - just different) and his purring gets 10x louder. Sometimes he'll do really weird/funny things like suddenly roll around, put his butt down and scoot in circles, reach back and give me a play bite (definately a play bite, I know his play bites and he's never done it in a way that seems vengeful) and once he even pee'd a little. I don't get it! I've looked around on the internet but maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing. I'm not sure if he's really enjoying it, or I'm doing something mental to him.
He's sticking his butt in my face right now, expecting a scratch. Help?

What is the best (safest, most reliable) way for a 62 year old woman to look for a romantic companion?
(I wish my mom would find a companion. She's 62 and doesn't belong to a church or club of any sort, so meeting people is difficult for her. She's attractive for her age. She says it's a waste of time since all the good men are taken anyway. I would like to help her think of a way to meet some of the "good men.")
My mom and I talk about this sometimes. She WANTS a companion, but she's scared. I am in no way trying to force her to start dating. Actually, I've never even brought it up. She's the one who has brought it up. I'm posting this to see if there are any ideas that she or I have yet to think of. Please don't assume I'm trying to force the situation on her. In fact, if she didn't seem sad about it at times, I wouldn't care one way or another. I'd just like to see my mom happy because I love her.

Is there a good way to make my two dogs get along with a new kitten I have in my house? He's in a cage right now,and can only take him out when my dogs are outside, or they'll eat him.!They've already tried a few times to bite him when I get him close to them. :( Is it impossible to get them to get along? Do you know of a way that can help?

Two years ago I had one of those sugar-screened pictures of My Little Pony on my 21st birthday cake as a silly change of pace.

Do you know any really good/difficult/thought-provoking riddles? And not just the typical couple that always circulate like "What's greater than God, worse than the devil, the rich want it the poor have it, and if you drink it your die?" But something that's rarer than that.
If so, will you share?
