Do you think it's rude to talk on a cell phone at a bookstore? I was at Border's and this guy was having a loud and long conversation on his cell phone (mostly about fraternities) while pacing around the entire store. The weather was really nice outside so he could have gone outside to do it.

Where is cell phone talking taboo, according to you?

I'm filling out some "Selling Skills Basic" sheet for my now job and I managed to complete all the questions minus the following:

What is an example of a merchandise greeting when approaching a customer who is looking at bath hardware?
How about the gadget wall?
What is an open-ended greeting when approaching a customer carrying lavender paper?
What is an example of a appropriate greeting when approaching a bride?

I partly get some but then the other half of the question confuses me.

Have you heard of the ClearPlay DVD player?
What's your opinion of it?
Would you ever buy one of these or your family?
What would your kids say if you brought that home? What would you have said if your parents had brought that home?

How do you watch Silence of the Lambs with no references to sex or violence? Or The Omen? Wedding Crashers? Could you watch any of those movies edited to remove all references to sex and violence?
What kind of filter could they possibly put on Ratatouille? Charlotte's Web? Muppets from Space?


I think it's disgusting. If you don't want your children getting the wrong idea about language, sex, and violence: talk to them. Explain why you don't want them watching the movie. You can't keep them in a bubble forever and they're going to hear about it from somewhere eventually. Plus it ruins any artistic integrity the film has.
What cute little hats you guys have!

I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters scatological.

1) Would you eat off a dish or use silverware which you know had been fully immersed in fecal matter of some kind (doesn't really matter, just something sufficiently nasty, so no earthworm poop), but had been cleaned with no way to tell had been previously unclean?

2) Would you use a miracle cure (not too miracle-y, something that makes you look ten years younger, or fully regrows bald hair, or permanently cures flatulence, etc) that you took by mouth, had no taste, but was composed entirely of puréed pig anuses?

3) Let's say your best friend in the entire world is an alien, and you're out at dinner one night when it suddenly begins choking. The Heimlich maneuver worked, but they've passed out and aren't breathing. Would you give it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation? Please note that this particular alien species eats and defecates from the same hole, kind of like an owl, but much messier. Also, their poo tastes like cherries.

   - Would you encourage or discourage me from having it done? 
   -  Why?

 

2 - Do you, personally, know anyone who has had a self harming problem?
[ This can include yourself and a simple yes/no answer will suffice. ] 



3 - What song should I download right now?

For me, it's figging, which is when a person gets off on having ginger inserted into their vagina or rectum. It creates an intense burning sensation that would be torture for most people, but if you're masochistic you might enjoy it.

We rent our house and our landlords expect us to take care of the lawn ourselves. One day, I came home from work and the grass had been mowed. My husband was at work at the time, so it wasn't him. My husband mowed this past Sunday. Today he had the dog out before he left for work and some old dude with a riding mower came to our house, asked my husband if he mowed the yard and then left.

The house next to us has a mowing notice in their yard because the grass is seriously over one foot high. We think that this old guy is supposed to be mowing that yard but is too senile to realize it. He doesn't come a lot, so if he IS supposed to be mowing our lawn, we'd have had grass a foot high as well.

Is this old man senile? Did my landlord hire this guy and forget to tell him that someone moved in?

If there were a business that catered to the release of stress and frustration in a safe way, yet allowed you to throw things and yell and scream, would you?

Say if there were all these rooms set up for this, all of them padded, and soundproofed, with a stuff that you could throw around (yet not do damage to yourself or the room with them), as you screamed and yelled and stomped, would you use it? There would be no danger to you with what you did in there, no one would lock you in and leave you, you could get out at any time, but you could stay in there and just get it all out. Do you think that something like this would help society at all? Or would it encourage more angry behaviour?

Is there anything that can be done to fix a laptop monitor that looks like it's having a seizure? It goes all wonky and turns into blocks of color, usually flashes different random colors a few times before it settles on a color block scheme it likes and stays like that. It fixes itself if I touch the screen in any way. It's an old laptop, so I'm not surprised this is happening. I just want to know if there's a cheap quick solution to make it stop because it's really annoying.

Ok...so, for my mom's 50th birthday, my dad and I want to get her a '66 Mustang convertible... preferably red. We want the car to be in great shape since we we're not mechanics and it won't be a project car nor a daily driver, but since it won't be a daily driver, it doesn't have to be like, totally perfect. We've checked out a few cars online and went to a car show, but we still don't really know what we're doing.

1. Any tips on buying vintage cars?

2. Any tips on dealing with old Mustangs?

3. If anything, how should we present her the car when we find it?

relationships!

So my friend has asked my opinion on a guy she wants to date. This guy has been head over heals in love with her/wanting to be with her for a few years at least now. She was always not so single. Now that she is, they are talking, hanging out ect. He wants to date, she wants to date him too but doesnt trust him. Yeah. 

See, 90% of his friends are FEMALE. about 80% of them he has had sex with/kissed/dated or some form of sexual contact with. He also is a compulsive heavly flirter.

Im worried he will continue on with these female friends (some of his ex's he still has sex with) or do something to hurt her with one of his friends. I want to tell her not to date him. (she asked my opinion)

What would you tell youre friend to do? Would you trust/want to be with someone who is like this, and someone who has been known to cheat in the past? Even if they claim they will *change* and wont do it to you?

Which would you rather choose?

a) a career that interests you and offers a lot of mobility in the sense that jobs are pretty much always available somewhere in the country. This career option is also very stable and comfortable in the sense that almost every day is fairly the same.

b) a career that seems a bit more exciting than career choice A, but its market is very unpredictable. you'd only make tons of money if you became the head or started your own business. May have to work some weekends, and not as mobile in the sense that this career path is really only big in huge cities where the cost of living is high (NYC, LA)

TQC, please advise:

Is it a fashion faux pas for a girl to wear men's board shorts not only at the beach, but in public on the way to said beach? I want to play in the waves and you'd have to kill me to get into any kind of women's swimwear. I find board shorts cute, but would people look at me strangely if I wore them?

Edit: I'm looking at women's board shorts, but they all seem to be way too small (you don't want to see that much of my thighs, srsly) or too form-fitting. I need baggy to be comfortable.

And yes, I'd have a top with it. Just a t-shirt.

Also, completely unrelated:

Okay--a few months ago, I pledged to donate some money to the ASPCA each month. Unfortunately, I can no longer afford to do so, but I don't know how to cancel. I went online to their website, but I couldn't find any details. I even tried Googling it, but that didn't help either.

Has anyone managed to cancel from donating to the ASPCA? Could you tell me how to do it?

And for those who have never donated to the ASPCA, have you ever had similar troubles with another charity? Or even had trouble unsubscribing from an e-mail or mailing list?

The other day I was driving to work while being annoyed by all of the birds in my apartment complex. They shit all over my truck and I'm becoming more inclined to pay $15 more a month just to have a covered parking space, and I wouldn't be surprised if the apartment complex feeds the birds purposefully to encourage the extra money they make from their inexpensive one-time investment. So on the way to work one of them was in front of my truck on the road. I thought to myself after speeding up, "There are all these birds, and no matter how hard I hit the gas, I still never hit the bird."

The person in the room next to me keeps having these marathon rock band sessions (I'm assuming it's rock band). He's the only one, and he keeps playing the drums. It's been going on for over an hour now. Last time it lasted four hours. And he was singing part of the time. Do I shoot him, or just keep playing baroque music really loud?

I ran across this drama mess some stupid teen romance many years ago: Girl meets guy some sort of pen pal thing. They start to hit off, and imply that they both want to date, but no promises are made. Then girl meets an old friend whom she hasn't seen in awhile, and they start to get involved. She goes "ohnoez, turmoil!" and proceeds to worry and not want either guy to find out. She is also putting off meeting Mr. PenPal. What would you do if you were her?
I think I would just tell Mr. PenPal I didn't want a relationship, and hope that things with Mr. OldFriend would just go back to normal. Then I seriously consider removing myself from the gene pool, because I obviously don't possess the common sense God gave kumquats.

When you think of barbecue do you think of...

Pork or beef?

If you have had both, which do you prefer?

Where are you from?

A girl on my friends list was telling a foreigner to "get out of her state" in a Texas community for asking where to get pulled pork barbecue in Austin. I lol'd because she wouldn't accept that people outside of Texas generally think of pork as barbecue, not beef. Which is why I'm asking, of course, to see if my assumption (about other states) was correct.

Anyway, I like pork better, and I'm from Texas.

A friendship question

This is something I need to clarify for my own sanity, because it's bothering me like nobody's business.

My best friend plays this videogame. It's an MMO on a server, so it's multiplayer. Now, this friend is ADAMANT that I not buy this game - even though it's out in public domain for anyone to buy and play - because he says it's "his private space" an he doesn't want me "interfering" with it.

This bothers me for two reasons. One, because it's a pretty dumb thing to tell someone they can't play something that's out there for everyone to enjoy. That's like banning your friends from playing DDR because it's YOUR workout routine, and nobody else can take that away. It's dumb and irrational.

The second reason his excuse bothers me is that he won't tell me WHY it's "his private space". I asked if he just didn't want me to catch him cybering or anything, and he said that wasn't it, so I have no freaking clue what huge secret he's got about that digital world that he can't allow any of his real life friends to join.

It makes it even more confusing when he sings praises about this game when we hang out, basically making me want to try it, but then he gets all snide and bitchy when I say I'm interested in playing it. The last time I asked him (nicely) to explain why he considered it "private", he called me a "pain" and acted like a total dick to me for the duration of the conversation. I have no idea what's going on.

Am I out of line for thinking his excuse is dumb and irrational? It's not like I'd be playing WITH him, I just want to try out the damn game. But he doesn't even want me to do that. Can anyone give me some plausible theories here? This is driving me batty.

Thanks.

How would you feel about that?


I personally hate reading online journals (for uni). I much prefer it when they're printed out. Also, I hate the idea of reading a novel online. I love curling up with a book on my bed and to have no books, no paper would be really awful. Plus, books look nice on my shelf.

Airport

I'm Canadian and I'm doing some travelling through the US this summer.

I've got a couple of flights to book that require me changing planes, since I cannot get a direct flight.
Any idea on how long I should leave between each flight?

Some have me landing at noon but the next plane takes off at 12:45.. is that enough time or should I wait for a later flight?

Thanks for your help.

What sounds better for dinner?

Steak Salad

or

Whole Grain Spaghetti with Meatballs?

edit::

This is a step towards eating better and a healthier solution to my normal everyday routine. If anyone can remember my previous posy about leaving someone that disgusted you, I told the guy to get off my back about it. I haven't talked to him all day.

I went with the salad!

Where is the best place to buy a 20" or 22" bike for a 24 yr old woman who is only 4' 10?  The few bikes I have found look like little kid bikes! :(

sleeping

Do you prefer sleeping alone or with another person?

Do you thrash in your sleep? Snore? Talk?

Will you tell me your favorite sleep-talking story?

Are you a tummy, side, or back sleeper?


Strange thing for me is I like sleeping with someone, but I thrash a lot so people hate sleeping with me. I also do this thing where I'll cuddle, then I'll push, then I'll cuddle, then I'll push again. But I swear my boyfriend is magical, because I'll go to sleep on his chest and I won't move the whole night.

Edit, I forgot my story. I was in New York, and I had to share a bed with my little sister. We were taking a nap, and I woke up before she did. As I was lying in bed, looking at the ceiling, she smacked me in the face. I sat up and was all, "WTF?" but then she started singing "I'm a Little Teapot."

My google-fu skills are failing me today. I am looking for an article where parents don't want thier kids reading Lord Byron because thier kids like the aesthetic of the Bronic hero. Can you help me find it?

How many hours of sleep do you get every night? Is that ideal to you? Do you want more? Are there not enough hours in the day?

Hey TQC!

I donated plasma and got a tetanus shot today. They gave me an extra $5 for getting the shot, but my arm feels like someone hit it with a sledgehammer haha.

Did you do anything interesting today? What was it?

What's your favourite book you've read this year?

Or, if you're like me and obsessively keep track so you can be like the cool kids in 50bookchallenge, feel free to tell me exactly how many you've read and link me to your list. (I like reading other people's book lists.) I'm currently on my 28th book of the year. My goal last year was 50 and I read 67, so my goal this year is 60, but I'm secretly hoping to pass 75.

So I'm going on a trip next month, and I want to make as much extra money as possible.

So, TQC, how can I make money in the next month?

I have a job, but no car, and I don't really have much of anything to sell.
