I'm a college student who is currently working part-time at a grocery store. The majority of my coworkers are middle-aged women who have worked there many years. The other day, a coworker mentioned sometimes feeling embarrassed about working at a grocery store, as it's obviously not the most luxurious job. I don't think she should feel ashamed or embarrassed, as a job is a job.

Labryinth - bedroom scene with the goblins
What was your area of expertise?
How much did you charge?
Is there any subject area that you feel you could tutor if you wanted to? Non-serious answers welcome.
edited because this question just occurred to me: I'm doing some work as a writing tutor/editor, and I'm charging $20 an hour. Is this too much/not enough? If it makes a difference, I have to drive a half-hour to where most of my clients live in order to meet with them in person.
what are you doing today?
I use Franklin Gothic Medium for now but I'm getting bored of it.
How are you today?

What word(s) do kids say that mean something unconnected that only their mother or family members understand?
I mean, yeah, 4% interest is great....if you are buying a new home. But if you can't afford the mortgage you have, and want to refinance to take advantage of the low interest, it is highly likely that you owe more on your current mortgage than your house is worth right now. And no bank in their right mind is going to refinance that. So now what?
Any economics people want to clarify this for me? I don't understand exactly how this is supposed to help the people that need it most.

My company asked me to write an article for our magazine. It's the first thing I've written since college, which was some time before the birth of Jesus. Before I hand it to my editors to rip it to shreds, I want someone else to rip it to shreds -- you.
Will you tear me a new asshole on this article?

I don't really believe in spending lots for it, but don't want to receive and not give.
ETA: I think I might be getting quite a large gift....I only have a students budget, but want to get something nice.
Do they have stylists for common folk like us (vs. celebrities), and where can I find one? (I live in Chicago if it matters.) I know basically what kinds of shapes/cuts look good on me because of magazine articles and my amateur seamstress mother, but I'm very curvy (large bust and hips, very small natural waist/rib cage), and therefore a difficult size to fit. I can't just walk into any old department store and find something off the rack (...unless it's a t-shirt).
I can't afford a lot, but I would really appreciate some professional advice on where I can shop and what pieces I should stock my closet with...and I doubt "What Not to Wear" is going to come knocking on my door. :P
For those who don't know, what's your biggest body feature problem/annoyance?
For me, not only is my extreme hourglass figure a problem (no blouses for me!), but also my feet are. I'm 5'8" and have (barely) 7, double-wide feet. It's hard to find shoes that fit me and still look nice (no grandma-shoes, thanks).
And to put a positive end to this post, what's your favorite body feature?
I like the shape of my face. It looks good with several different kinds of hair styles/cuts.

...I was born the 24th of November.
My birthday was blissfully uneventful other than a near chocolate overdose of goodness.
Still seeing the combinations though. Marvel Comics character Richard Ryder's Nova Corps number starts with 1124. I'm watching this past Tuesday's episode of Fringe and the lead female character lives at 1124 Strathmore Blvd...
...and, I just realized, the 4 digits add up to my favorite number which is 8.
Just for the sake of my insatiable curiosity, and a building case of paranoia, is there any significance to the number 1124 that any of you are aware of?
do you think that the other apartments in my building are using our oil tank without our knowing, and that's why it's going so quickly? Like, the landlord failed to mention we all share an oil tank, and we're the only one filling it for 3 families? or something equally ridiculous?
or do you think that the rate of usage is normal?
any other ideas?

Edit to add my answer: My grandpa died the day before my 20th birthday so I spent my 20th birthday on a plane and at my grandpa's funeral instead of playing in Disney World and going out to dinner with 20 or so friends. I had to text everyone and explain that dinner was canceled, and almost all of them asked so many questions.
And I forgot my 18th birthday, when I invited a bunch of people to go to the midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and about 15 people said they'd be there. I ended up there alone, waiting.

I'm trying to remember a one-liner, I'm pretty certain it's a Bill Bailey quote, but it was in the context of something very weird. And it was something along the lines of "it's like trying to imagine a giraffe..." and then it was doing something with a something (non-sexual) that produced a really, really weird mental image. And then he (if it was indeed Bill Bailey) said "go on, imagine it! isn't it kooky?" (Or something like that.)
Can anyone help me out and produce the quote?
Also, to any dancers, I've forgotten the name of a step. That one which usually goes across a stage, with a step ball change and then you sort of throw yourself into the air and do a scissor-kick kind of jump turning, then land one leg, then the other, and end up going in the same direction you started in. If that makes any sense.
Finally, what's the best - or worst, if it's a groan punchline - joke you've ever heard?
((Sorry for the the very messily written first two questions, but I can't get my thoughts together on them.))
It has to be healthy-ish, but I'd like to not be boring.

So anyway, one 17yr old girl takes an ecstacy pill before she leaves to go to this event. When she gets there, she freaks out thinking there are Police officers there with sniffer dogs will sniff out the remaining 2 ecstacy pills she has in her possession, so she takes both of them. (Initial reports stated there were dogs, the Commissioner of Police has since stated there were no dogs at the actual event, only at the railway station) She goes inside and goes on an amusement ride and an hour later collapses, is taken to hospital and later dies from a (suspected) overdose. It was also relatively hot day being 36c and very humid.
People are now blaming the Police presence for the girl's death. So my question is, what is your opinion? Do you believe the girl is to blame? If not, who do you believe is to blame? Why/why not?
Do you think the Police are to blame? Why/why not?

I live in a small mom and pop hick business town. There is a couple of small downtown business and I want to be banned from one of them. These stores (not even in strip malls -more like houses) last a year tops. They are : Pizza places, barber shops, gift stores, and a exercise place. It is a immature post but I want to mess with their heads and maybe even get a police file stating I am not allowed in this store ever again. I know I could piss or crap on the floor, but I dont want to have to pay 100 + dollars to clean up my own crap. What is a way I could get banned and have proof for my online fellowships?

So my question is: should my mom contact the principal, or do something else? She wants the situation to be looked into but doesn't know how to address it. My brother doesn't want her to do anything. Obviously a teacher belittling a student like that is unacceptable and my mom isn't going to just let it slide, so what should she do?
Has something like that ever happened to you or someone you know?
