Going to bed with *so*

When your *so* goes to bed, do feel the need to follow?...even if you are not sleepy?
While they are in bedroom and you are out and about, do spend a little too much time wondering if you should join them or do you relish in the (left alone time)?
I am on my laptop in the kitchen watching t.v and loving it, he has kept the light on in the the bedroom, so I know he wants me to join him, but, I will go when I want;)

Do you find this sweatshirt offensive?

If so, how?

Collapse )

I wore it to work[call center] and someone complained to a manager. They said they're "deeply religious" and they were "offended" or something.

Odd, maybe. Offensive? I don't see how. Bones are 'offensive'? I think maybe they shouldn't turn on the TV or really leave the house if that offends them.

I asked the sup who told my sup someone complained exactly what they said and he just told me they were 'disturbed and offended' and I said "Well if they are offended by skeletons they shouldn't watch tv or like ever leave the house!" and apparently he went and told the boss. I thought that guy was cool but now apparently i have a "negative review" waiting for me or something. My sup said I shouldn't have asked him about it. Am I not allowed to ask questions or have an opinion?!! The boss never came to see me or anything so maybe its nothing, but still. Gimme a break. Apparently my call center is in East Germany. No opinions you will do as told, schwein!

For the past three weeks I've been taking a dance class. There's a guy there who is reasonably good looking, seemingly nice and funny, and a good dancer. I have no idea if he is currently dating someone. I don't know him very well, but I would like to.

The problem is that I'm shy and I have no idea how to approach people, especially guys, especially guys who have dating potential. I am very afraid of social embarrassment, so I would really like to be able to indicate that I might be interested in him without making a fool of myself. Can anyone help me?

I dyed my hair earlier, and it came out much darker than I thought it would. It makes my hair look like a helmet :( I've decided I like the color, but now I want to go and get a haircut to make my hair look not so helmet-y. Any suggestions for what I can do? I usually just get layers to make it easier to manage, but at this length will it make my hair too mullet-y?

For example there is a movie coming out in a few weeks that's being advertised on TV as opening in select theaters only, usually this means a 45 minute drive for me however I'd like to know in advance if possible so I can plan a trip better.

Potential housemates

We will soon be needing a new housemate. I posted an ad on the Australian equivalent of Craigslist, and have received eleven replies, all but one of which sound really quite good (I put that down to my being specific in my ad.) But now I will have to choose between them! I'm sure we'll end up with someone good, but I'm a bit anxious at having to turn up to nine people down - I know it's hard to find somewhere good to live and I'm starting to feel bad!

TQC, how do I choose between multiple potential housemates?

General tips, specific questions, what-not-to-do's?

Note: We haven't met any of them in person yet, I only posted the ad a couple of days ago, I'm just asking this in anticipation.

I mentioned Alvin and the Chipmunks to my girlfriend and she started hunting for a song that they did. It was about a stray kitten that they took in and then it got out and hit by a car.

Was this song something before the Chipmunks got a hold of it?

Wikipedia lists an episode:

70. "Cookie Chomper III"
Theodore encounters a stray kitten that entered through an open window in the house. He and the boys take an instant liking to the kitten, and after some compromising, they name the kitten Cookie Chomper III.

    * First appearance of Lilly, the Chipmunks' puppy.
    * Many fans of the show dub this the saddest episode of the series since it dealt with the accidental death of a kitten.

Asshole just hung up on me..

What's the worst customer service experience you've had?
Did you do anything about it?

I recently canceled an impulse buy that I made online.. but the customer service guy was SUCH a dick about it. After grilling me about why I wanted to cancel (what's it to him, anyway? shit.), he promptly ended the phone call with "Ok, ma'am." *click* Wtf? He didn't even tell me if he cancelled it or not. I was being really polite for the entire phone call and I get THAT attitude for it? Mamma must've not raised him right.

I didn't do anything about it though. Because 1) I'm bad at being stern with people I don't even know. and 2) I'm a weenie.

I was in a good mood until SHE came in. The office troll. The wicked witch of the midwest. She who lacks all scruples.

Is there anyone that you work with who just makes you angry before they even open their mouth? (Because you know that as soon as they do, some vile filth is going to pour forth from it?)

And what do you do to distract yourself from the ugliness?

First let me say that I am going to call Verizon today and get this resolved, but I was wondering if this had happened to anyone else.

If you have the Samsung Gleam, did you have a problem with the battery when you first bought the phone? Mine was on the charger most of the day yesterday, and had 3 bars (battery) when I went to sleep at 2am. When I woke up at 8:30 (I was SUPPOSED to wake up at 6:30, so it didn't even last 4.5 hours for my alarm to go off) it was dead.

Thank you for any input :)

1- My neighbours that like to have loud raucous sex are being really loud again. Thing is, the noise/banging has now created a CRACK in our adjoining wall. Should I just kill them already? Do you have a better idea? (ETA: We're in a townhouse. I've got to pay rent in a week anyway, so I'll just bitch if it gets worse. The cat seems to be able to hear them through the crack, cuz she keeps sitting there and yowling. o_O)

2- If you live on your own, how long did it take for you to learn how to eat 'right'? Or did you never learn? If you still live with your parents (or whatever guardians) do they feed you right?

I just had my first motorcycle ride... my first experience with a motorcycle at all actually, and unfortunately I wasn't warned about the muffler.

Sooo, I now have a couple burns on my leg. The entire burn pretty much covers my calf, the worst of which is just a 5in x 2in section, which is starting to blister around the edges.  I really don't think it's serious enough to go to the hospital, I'm just looking for first aid tips

I kept my leg under cold water in the shower for awhile, and I'm not sure what to do now.  I've got a cold towel on it at the moment, but it's starting to hurt again.  Should I just hop back in the shower?  It didn't hurt at all under the running water... But I don't really want to be in the shower for hours.  How long should I stay in?  

Edit:  Okay, question part two.  I'm new to this state, and haven't found a doctor here yet.  Should I just call up local clinics and ask if they're accepting new patients?  Or do I just tell them I've got a burn and need to be seen?  I do have insurance through my parents, but I've never had to find a doctor before... Not sure how you do it.

If you drop a $20 bill without noticing and someone points it out, do you:

a) Thank them and put it back in your wallet.
b) Give them half for letting you know.
c) Give them the whole thing because you would have never noticed.

I was at an airport and a man in front of me dropped a $20 bill. I pointed it out to him and then sat down at a table with my husband. Much to my shock, he came over to us and tried to give me $10. I kept refusing but he wouldn't let it go. He said he was so surprised someone told him that he wanted to repay me. I never thought of doing this in the past when other people pointed out I dropped money. Just curious to see if others do this as well.

1) Can you leave a tip with CPS with a vague description of what's happening or do you need to provide details of specific incidents?

2) Assuming that you need to provide details about specific incidents, would CPS investigate without telling the parents what they know?  Could CPS say that they're just investigating a tip (so the parents don't out that you're the one who ratted on them)?

3) What if you don't know their address?

2. My roommate will be moving out at the end of next month when I thought I'd until the end of April to find a new person. What unexpected life altering event has happened to you recently?

3. What are your roommate horror stories? I got lucky with my last one as she's been fairly awesome, but I've had bad experiences in the past. I'm curious to know how bad it's been for the rest of you.

4. Would you rather be the one moving in or the one already there?

5. When was the last time you moved and how far did you go? Why did you leave?

What's the longest flight you've taken alone?

Have you ever traveled to another country alone for pleasure (rather than business)? How was it?

EDIT: If you haven't traveled to another country alone but had the means to, would you?

Did you know that a Nevada business paid its employees with gold and silver U.S. legal tender coins and successfully won a tax evasion case?

If you didn't know, can you infer the argument which won the case for the defendants?

Why is it that on shows like CSI, they never look for a light switch when going into a dark room and instead use these tiny little flashlights?

Is that normal police/csi protocol? Or is it just show for TV?

Do you find it weird that though there seems to be a lot of assholes in the world most people would describe themselves as nice goodhearted people?

Also how old do you wanna be when you get married?

Say you make a lot more money than your significant other. You live together and they don't pay rent or utilities. You always pay when you go out which often includes hefty bar tabs, mostly rung up by them.

The agreement was that they do housework, chores, and errands in lieu of rent, but this is not happening despite many conversations about it. What do you do?

Tomorrow when I wear a dress (red plaid), should I go with footless tights and flats, or normal tights with boots?

When was the last time you felt really sick to your stomach because of something you found out/something someone said? (Not a gross image, but something upsetting).

Should I have Mango Passionfruit tea, or sleepy time tea? Both are decaf.

Okay, TQC, here is the situation:

So what should I do? Murder is not an option.

Note: Yes, I am aware I was stupid to trust her, I need better passwords and was an overall moron throughout. Reminding of this will do none of us any good.

An issue with my husband's brother got me thinking...

If your SO became paralyzed from the waist down, would you stay? Would you leave him/her? Or would you just start getting some on the side?

I bet my husband $50 that if my brother-in-law becomes paralyzed, within a month his girlfriend will either leave or start cheating on him.

Me? I'd stay. I didn't marry my husband because of his penis.

Oh....and as for my earlier post:


We saw I Am Legend. It was good except for the little bastards talking on their cell phones in the theater.

I saw this dog today and I can't figure out which breed it is. It looks similar to a pug except with no wrinkles. It is kind of tan/light brown in color and has an all black snout and a tail that curls up at the end. Sort of like a miniature boxer but not really. I'm fairly certain it wasn't a puggle or other mixed breed. Do you know what I'm talking about?

I've been browsing dog breeds and I can't find it!

After having my third blowout in less than a month last night (the first two were of tires that were six months old, the latest one was one of the week-old replacement tires), I'm wondering:

Why are tires inflated, and not made of solid rubber? Weight? Nobody wants to make a two-piece rim?

How do you solve (x^2 - 1) / (1 + x)? I know how to use the distributive property and FOIL for multiplication, but don't know how to divide 2 binomials that don't have a common denominator. Do you still use FOIL for division?

Does your *so* make you feel fat? Even if you're not.

What color nail polish do you wear the most?

Any photographers out there want to check out my page and give me some tips?

1. Should I go to a soccer game in February? I have never been to one before, don't follow soccer, and have no idea what to expect. It seems a little pricey, too. It's Roma vs. Reggina.

2. Have you had a point in your life when it was difficult making friends? What did you do?

3. The yam post made me want yams. Do you think I could make some of those desserts using just a microwave and two gas burners?

4. What is something about you that always surprises people when they find out?

What is up with all the racist Hayden Icons (you know the girl in Bring it on! and Remember the Titans)? like the N word is used in one and the other refers to another girl as being a mexican cleaning lady

I have also seen some of the Spear's girls that are surprising to me...Why?

What would you do if someone you didn't know was sending you slightly creepy online messages?

Some guy from (I believe) the Netherlands started messaging me on last.fm and then requested to be my friend. He sent me some messages talking about music and I responded to them because they seemed harmless, but now he's asking me about my personal life, saying that he wants to hear me sing (I mentioned that I'm a singer), giving me creepy compliments, etc.

Even though I haven't responded to a lot of his messages he keeps sending more. I don't want to be mean but I kind of want him to leave me alone. What do you think I should do? He's mostly just a nuisance -- I don't think there's a very big chance that he'll fly to the US and start stalking me -- so should I just ignore him?

serious umbrellas

I had an umbrella that I bought from Brookstone for $35 years ago and I loved it. It recently broke so I went back to get a replacement and now they SUCK SO BAD. They've changed the metal that they use for the wiring and it's so flimsy, so now I paid $35 for a piece of crap.

Can anyone recommend a place to get a very high quality umbrella, one with a vented canopy and is sturdy enough to withstand wind? I don't mind paying a lot of money because I do a lot of walking.

I'm desperate for friendship. I'm depressed. My SO and I have been having a lot of problems lately. Everyone in my family lives like 900 miles away from me. I don't know anyone here, even though I've been living here over a year. I go to school, but no one talks to me. I feel inferior to everyone. I don't know why, but I do.

What is a good way to make friends in college?
I'm really, really shy around people I don't know.

If you're in a loving, commited relationship, do you 

have little crushes but don't act on them (your SO is way better)
do you only have eyes for your SO and never have feelings for anyone else?

Do you think it's human nature to have crushes even when you're in love with someone else?
