1) assume you are 19 years old. you are at work, and your 30-ish supervisor (who is a member of your preferred sex) is randomly saying "ho ho ho ho ho". a nearby coworker says something like "that's not a very nice thing to call him/her, you don't know if they are or not." the supervisor then goes, "well, maybe i wanna find out."

what would your reaction be?

eta: the supervisor rarely says stuff like this, and you (the 19 year old) are on very good terms with everyone at work, including the sup.

2) do you work with mostly people of your gender, or of the other gender?
3) are the people you work with normal and boring, or are they all complete characters and awesome to work with?

Is there someone you want to tell "get over it" or "move on already" regarding something fairly trivial that they spend too much time dwelling on or bring up for the least little reason?

If so, what's the issue, and why do you think they can't let go?

The Safeway by my house only has one checkstand open in the mornings, when I stop and get my Sugar Free Rock Star and bagel for my commute. I'm not one of those people that looks at what the person in front of me is buying, but this morning, the woman ahead of me had TONS of cleaning supplies. I wasn't even irritated that she was taking FOREVER, but who gets up at 6:45 in the morning on a Monday to go to the grocery store to buy cartloads of cleaning supplies?!

So... what is your usual grocery shopping time?

I usually go once a week, right after work.

Presidential material?

So, we're playing out several "when will this happen" in the current US Presidential race.

Now or Later

My mom and step-father are going through a stupid, retarded, utterly GAY DUMB divorce (this crap all lays at his feet, and I'm not just saying that because she's my mom). My step-father has 180ed and become some sort of unreasonable beast, who now has some unsavory traits. My mom has some stuff she wants me to have, and she's stated that she wants me and my husband to come get it ASAP (she recently had hardcore surgery and can't bring/send it herself) and part of the reason it's a priority is because she's afraid he might try to sabotage (some of) it in order to get back at her through me or something. Childish, yes; unheard of, no.

Anyways, I bought her a nice handbag not too long ago with the intention of sending it to her so she could have a pick me up in this time of woe and financial crappery. Then she said not to buy it for her, to save my money and all that. I got it for her anyways because I found it on sale for only $80ish. I've been hemming and hawing as it is about sending it to her now, when she's depressed, or saving it for her for Christmas as a big surprise. But now, with her thoughts about my step-father's current mentality, I'm more at a loss. It's probably the only bag worth $100+ she'll ever have in her whole life because those sorts of things don't matter to her, if that's important to know.

Should I send my mom her handbag now, or save it for later?

PS - If you're curious why I bought my mom a sort of expensive handbag when she told me not to and doesn't care about it, it's because A) after I asked her if she'd like it and sent her pics, she asked about it later which made me think she would like to have it and B) it's a Dooney & Burke bag with bees all over it and her name is Bea - I always buy her bee stuff, LOL!

ETA: I did not mean to imply all things gay = stupid, for the man in question is straight and clearly a dumb ass. My apologies for my horrible misuse of the word in this context.

A nice Uncle...

Say you find out you had an unknown rich uncle who died.  He left you a monthly allowance of $300 a month for the rest of your life.

But his gift has one condition--you have to decide NOW whether you will spend the $300 on:

1. Clothes (for you, or your kids, or your husband, or for charity.  You can only buy clothes)
2.  Food (eating out or grocery store...you can treat your friends, kids, or give it all to a charity)
or
3. Entertainment (movie tickets, musicals, DVD rentals, plays, amusment parks...you can take friends, or donate tickets to make a wish foundation or other charities).

You may not use this money to MAKE money (such as, you cannot buy tickets for face value and then scalp for a lot more)

What would you choose?  And why ?

Ok time for a real "typical 16 year old" question!

How realistic is it to think that a guy and a girl (if straight) can go to a dance together and have NEITHER assume there is something "more than friend"-like going on? I mean I know they can be just friends, but I don't understand why two people would actually GO together "officially" (like asking "will you go with me?") if it's not like a date thing. It seems to me that everyone I know who has gone "as friends" with someone else really did have deeper feelings than that.

Or am I wrong?

2. What is one trait that you require in someone before allowing a close friendship with them?

I found out through my husband (who ruined the surprise for a good reason, I promise) that my mom ordered me a new laptop for my birthday (a pink Dell, too! yay!).

My current laptop is pretty sweet, still works well, and wasn't cheap. It's about two years old, though. I'm upgrading because I'm a photographer and want more space and memory.

1) What's the best place to sell a good-condition, two year old laptop for the most money?

2) What's a good place to find out in general what I could get for my laptop?

3) What's a good company to use for my web design? I want a new website that uses basic flash but dont want to spend $2309582039850293.

Why do people care about the answers to these questions

So many times on sites to find penpals, or even just when people are asked to describe themselves on networking sites or dating sites (like myspace, facebook, okcupid, etc etc)...

There are two questions that seem to be on EVERY site (These are not my questions, you don't have to answer them.)
1. What are your favorite bands/musical artists?
2. What are your favorite movies?

MY QUESTION(S):

Do you really think these things tell anything about who the person is, or their personality, or whatever? I mean, just because someone likes a different kind of music than you do, or hates a movie that you absolutely love... does that really say anything about whether or not you would like them or get along with them? If so, how? And if not, why do they keep asking these questions?

I need to make an "artistic" cover page for some stupid assignment I have due tonight. I am probably the least artistic ever. I was thinking of using MS Paint and creating a collage, but paint sucks.

1.  Do you like babydoll dresses? Why or why not?
2.  Do you like skinny jeans? Why or why not?
I guess, I like some babydoll dresses, i've never tried one on, and can't imagine it looking too great on me. they kind of remind me of what I used to wear in elementary though..
I hate skinny jeans. I haven't tried any of them on either, but I think the selection of jeans out are tight enough as they are, without women's bodies looking like an upside-down triangle.

3.  Also, any old or recent trends or styles that you absolutely hate? why?

Give Us This Day Our Daily Potato Bread

1) Do you like white bread?
2) Have you tried Martin's Potato Bread?

Personally I never cared much for white bread, and I always preferred wheat bread, pita bread, or other types of bread. But my new roommates have gotten me hooked on Martin's Potato Bread and it's the only "white" bread that I actually like. It's made from potatoes, so can you really call it white bread even though it's white? Whatever you call it, it's now my favorite sandwich bread.

UGH I was gone for the weekend (though several of my housemates were still here) and when I came back our house was like, under siege by fruit flies. They're everywhere-- even in the bathroom! We guessed they came from the (small, covered) compost bin on our front porch, and we've thrown that away now, but how can we get the rest of them OUT? It's so gross.

EDIT FOR NEW QUESTION
Also-- lately my Firefox keeps doing this really annoying shit where suddenly it stops letting me switch to a different tab (that is, I can only stay in my current tab and I have to close it to go to a different one, and then I'm stuck on that one until I close it.) Also, when this happens it stops letting me open gmail-- it'll take me as far as the word "Loading" then just nothing happens. If I open up Internet Explorer (ugh) though, gmail and tabs all work. I think I recently updated to the latest Firefox-- should I uninstall it, or uninstall then re-install it, or what? (And if so, how?)

time off

Dear TQC,

Am I wrong in thinking that when one or both partners ask for "time off" in a relationship, that they are in fact actually breaking up without calling it breaking up?

Does that hold true with your own experience, or do you have experience with taking time off of a relationship and then coming back and having the relationship be even better?

Weight question

I used to weigh 130 pounds. I lost 10 pounds over the past month due to personal issues that caused me to lose my appetite. (Long, uninteresting super-personal story.) The point is that I would like those 10 pounds back. I liked the way I looked before better. Somehow, I feel like evenly re-gaining weight is a more complicated process than eating tons of doughnuts and ice cream, which I imagine would all go straight to my stomach, which is no good.

How do I go about this? Any tips/ideas?

I wasn't sure how to answer the question "did school prepare you for the real world" a few posts ago.

First instinct is to say "of course not," but then again, I'm here, aren't I? And obviously I use stuff I learned in school every day, because duh, I'm a teacher, but is that the norm?

I think if the question had been "did the content you were taught in school prepare you for the real world," the answer would be more straightforward. But you learn a lot more in school than the content.

So, here is my question:

If it wasn't school that prepared you for the real world, what was it?
or,
Were you just entirely unprepared for the real world?

Is is common for the guilty party in a car accident to completely lie and proclaim innocence?


This woman ran a red light and hit my car a week ago. We had a ton of witnesses (at least fifty), but only got one person's information. There's no doubt this woman ran the red. She was trying to bribe me not to go to insurance- claiming she'd pay me to fix my car plus more. She was completely admitting fault. However, when she found out that I had reported it, she changed her story. She's now saying that her car was past the line when the light turned red. She is also claiming that the witness is prone to agree with me, because my witness is black, and my boyfriend is black. So they're going to "stick together."

I'm really upset and stressed over this. I have a ton of voicemails she left me- saying she wanted to not go through insurance and pay me cash. Obviously I'm going to save them and hand them over to the insurance company. If anyone here has had experience with this, how did it work out for you?

(Also, no police report was taken. The accident happened in San Francisco, and they don't send anyone out unless an ambulence is called. We were all okay, and didn't need to call one)

So, I have really long hair, like down to my mid-back. However, it's really thick, and naturally curly. I want to cut it sooooo bad, because recently it's become a nuisance to wash. It takes me 45 friggin' minutes,and I need to wash it in sections! Except, I havent had short hair in 8 years.

- how short should I cut it so it doesn't look totally dyke-y? I don't want the ability to put it up.

- Should I cut it in layers? currently, my hair is straight-across-all-the-same-length, because that was a requirement for a straight-perm which I got 4 years ago. What will layers do to my hair?

Me:
1. I don't know (aside from the old Atari PS2 one I have), but I have a lot of time on my hands and I lack the energy/skill to play anything too complicated. Hoping someone has some good suggestions.
2. (a) Not at all for emotionally stable adults. (b) Young children, somewhat. Older teens...no, unless they really lose touch with reality. Even then...I don't know. Verdict is still out for me.

I remember this question popping up ages and ages ago in this community, but it's a good one that bears asking again.

So, everyone remembers the Ghostbusters movie where the guys are told by that ancient Sumerian god, Gozer, that the next thing that one of them thinks of will be the form it takes to destroy the world? And Ray accidentally summons a 100 foot tall Stay Puft marshmallow man because he thinks the Stay Puft Man could never hurt anybody?

What would you accidentily summon?

And my own addition for added spice:

What would pop into you head first if you wanted the world to be destroyed in the COOLEST manner possible? The one that you think would give you the best story to tell everybody in the afterlife?

What if something random popped into your head, and that random thing ended up being what destroyed the world, what would it be?

What if you really, really, REALLY fucked up and thought of something truly terrifying, what would that be?


My answers:
1. Hello Kitty
2. Tom and Jerry
3. Probably something to do with World of Warcraft, another video game, or anime. That would suck. I mean, who wants to be known in the afterlife as that Stupid Motherfucking Otaku Who Destroyed The World?
4. Pyramid Head. Man, people would be pissed. Not for long though, unless you can carry a grudge over to the afterlife

Odd request for techies

So I burned this CD for my SO recently and sent it to him. I burned it on my windows media player and of course, like an idiot, didn't write down what songs were on it (well I did, but thinking I wouldn't need it again, I threw it away). So he asked me who the artist of one of the songs was and seeing as how I don't remember what songs were in what order, I have no idea.

Is there anyway that windows media player keeps like a backup file that I can access of that burn? Or anything that could possibly tell me anything about it?

I have an idea which song it was, but I'm not entirely sure.

1. Probably $8.00, because it's a lot higher than I've ever gotten paid.
2. I signed up in December of '05 but didn't really start using it until just a few days ago, and haven't won anything. I'm just doing it for fun, really.

When an artist gets limited edition prints of their art made, where do they get these prints made and what steps do they need to follow? Is it as simple as professionally documenting the piece, having prints made, and signing them, or is there more to it?

Everyone hates iTunes questions but...

I just downloaded a skin for iTunes, and when I try to reopen it (itunes) I get this error message:

"The procedure entry point RegEnumValueW could not be located in the dynamic link library MPlugin.dll."

What the heck did I do?
How do I fix it?


EDIT:
Would you be pissed if everyone kept telling you that you were dumb for not going to the ER because of a Q Tip in your ear, or am I just butthurt because I did more damage because I didn't go, and they are right?

For my Ethics paper

A psychiatrist has a patient who was referred to her as being near a nervous breakdown. After a few sessions the patient confesses that he murdered a child months ago.

Is there a patient confidentiality law that prevents her from telling the police or is she allowed to?
