Is it just me or did there used to be something in the rules about how people asking homework questions get snarked? Because there isn't now and I feel like there was! Am I just crazy TQC or did the rules change?

And if you don't give a fuck...um...have you ever tried a neti pot? I got one today and I'm excited!

ETA: I just tried my new neti pot and it was awesome! All the pressure in my head left through my ears and I can breathe out of both nostrils now!

i'm socially inept sometimes. answer if you feel nice.

I'm a girl. and there's this guy.

He's one of the regulars at the restaurant i work at, and is a regular at the bar next door. that's where I met him (i stopped for drinks with a coworker who knew him), and for a few months afterwards I'd stop in every once in awhile after a shift. He'd always put my drink on his tab, insisting on it when i started to dig around for my wallet. Free drinks is nice, and he was convincing with the "I pay for lots of my friends! it's totally fine!" line. He knew i was fresh out of college and not so wealthy with the restaurant job, and he's making enough to go out most nights of the week, not struggling to make ends meet.

After awhile I felt like he was developing a thing for me, and i wasn't into him that way. I met him at the bar one night after work and asked him to stop inviting me to lunch, not to give me anything anymore (he had tried to give me a gift card he "wasn't going to use"), and to stop offering to drive me home (i took the bus).

He's been really great about things ever since. He still comes in to the restaurant and always likes to talk to me (I work in an open kitchen), happy to monopolize my time.

lately he's been trying to get my coworkers/bosses and me in particular to come have drinks at the bar after work. Now that I live nearby and don't have the "must catch a bus" excuse, I've been telling him that I don't have money for it (I really don't), and that I feel bad letting him pay for me (I really do) even though I don't drink much.

He says that everyone puts their drinks on his tab, and he doesn't care (the owners charge him less and sometimes don't make him pay up). He wants me to come by tomorrow, since tomorrow's some sort of last hurrah (all the bartenders got fired).

I want to go (he's amusing enough that it'd be nice to get out of the house for while to listen to him chatter). But I still don't have money, and I don't want to start building up any obligation to him. I reeeeally don't want him to think I've changed my mind about dating him (because I haven't). But I feel like "stop giving me stuff" includes "i can't accept free drinks from you", so would changing my mind about drinks on him = changing my mind about going out with him?

The questions:
if I go tomorrow and let him buy me a drink or two, would I be sending "maybe I DO like you like that" signals, or would that depend on the conversation?

Is it acceptable to let someone pay for your drinks when you've turned down their advances?

if I do go, should I bring a change of clothes? my restaurant stuff always smells like the deep fryer (not very pleasant) and it takes too long to go home and change.

Okay, you're in prison. You have to serve 10 years. Within the 1st year you are forced into a gang, and your new gang is involved in smuggling drugs into the prison. Now, even though you are trying to keep your head down as much as possible, you still know whats going on. You know who the drug mules are and you know whos dealing. You even know which guards are dirty. 

So when you've reached the one year mark,  you haven't caused or been a part of any problems. Because of you're good behaviour you're short listed to go to a better prison, with a rehilbilation program. Good behaviour there could shave years off your sentence.  But there's a catch. The warden knows you have information about the drug trade. He tells you if you don't give names you will spend the next 9 years in 'the hole', which 23 hours of solitude, in a depressingly tiny cell. You lose phone calls and visitation, too.  

But if you give names, there is going to be a target on your head for the rest of your life. You know the gang won't let that go, theres a long list of people that they've had killed for much less then that.

What do you do?
Do you give names?

ETA; The prison transfer is your 'protection'. But that goes away after you get out, obv.

my hometown has had a really huge problem with a deer overpopulation for the past several years. they're wandering onto the highways, causing accidents, ruining backyards, etc. the town's plan is to lure the deer into one area of the woods and have experts shoot and kill them with arrows....

personally, i don't think this is the best plan, but unfortunately, i don't have a say in it. honestly, do you think this is the best plan? if not, what do you think would be better?

TQC, why did my professor tell us that there wouldn't be any penalties for handing in this paper up to a week late? It's making it really hard to get motivated to finish it today.

(just for clarification: we won't get any comments on the paper if we hand it in next week, but we won't have any marks deducted either. And my marks have been consistently really high in this class, so I feel like I don't even need the comments)

Will you motivate me to finish it on time?

This is completely a 'your own opinion' kind of question, but I had an interesting discussion about it. Where I live, minimum wage is $8.40. Servers make $8.40/hour+tips, just for a frame of reference in what people are paid. I'm looking at both server & administrative assistant jobs, and I came across one that's pretty interesting, but alas, I'm not qualified. It was a "Receptionist/Secretarial" position. It required a bachelor's (of science, not art) in business, and offered $10/hour.
Am I outrageously presumptuous for thinking that, if you're going to require a specific four year degree (and require, within that degree, that it be a BS rather than a BA) you ought to offer more than $1.50 over minimum wage? And more than what a server is likely to make?

A gentleman's club is precisely what I suspect it is, isn't it?

Any of you ladies ever get a bra fitting at Victoria's Secret? Or just in general, anywhere? What was your experience?

I need to retire my ill-fitting bras and wanted to try the new VS BioFit bras. I've heard horror stories about VS fittings though, maybe I'm better off just grabbing a pile and trying them all on like jeans or something.

If your SO hits you once, do you immediately leave or are you willing to give them a second chance at the relationship, especially if they say they will seek help or whatever.

I find myself vacillatiing on this because I feel like the first time a guy hits me would be the last because I'll teach him what it means to hit me. But at the same time, suppose he really never does it again?

I'm interviewing with a company I really want to work for next week so I'm hoping to get that and bail on this. The owner had me come in for an interview and then in for a training. We spoke after my "training" and she asked me if I would be able to come in to work on Friday (today) if she needed me. I told her yes. The tutoring center opens at 3:30 and it's now almost 1:30. Do you think she's going to call? Also, she didn't have me fill out tax forms yet, is that weird?

Friday night

My husband and I are in a rut. Our evenings are pretty much spent watching movies or playing video games. Together, yes, and the conversation is always great, but I want to do something OUT of the house. He doesn't want to go to the movies. Sure, we could get coffee, but that takes like, half an hour. We live in Austin, for goodness sake, and we can never think of anything to do. We are not intersted in SXSW and he hates bars.

You would pick an event or activity, we would pay for tickets plus other expenses plus your fee, and at some point one of you would get tired of doing whatever it is and you would bring him back to our hotel room and hang out with him until we got finished with all the wedding stuff.

Level of difficulty: No hookers, no blow. The hotel has a dress code requiring business casual or dressier. The boy looks more like 14 or 15 years old, but acts more like 8 or 9 years old. We can't afford ransom or even bail.

tl;dr

so i'm browsing okcupid for girls who like girls and 75% of the results are bi chicks and must be skipped over. of the remaining few that are gay, the majority are obese or look like gay men. the 2 or 3 attractive (imo) ones are like into kinky shit and porn.

throughout my life i've only dated pure gheys out of fear that a bi girl would eventually leave and settle down with a man cause it's the "easier" path. also, a lot of the bisexual girls that i know are only into sexual things with girls and not relationships.

however, i'm finding that the percentage of good-looking femme lesbians is very slim. this means that i might have to broaden my horizons to include bisexuals. i'm not into transpeople or anything remotely masculine at ALL.

so, i guess my question is for the bisexual females of tqc.. do you plan on ultimately being with a guy at the end of the day, or are you open to whatever life brings?

I am alone in my school's radio station. It's kind of dark, and empty, and on the top floor of our campus center so it's pretty remote.

The radio station is haunted, y/y??
What kind of ghost do you think it is?

Awhile ago I had a co-worker asked me questions about my husband. I told her that he's Welsh (she gave me a confused look) so I just told her that he's from England. Immediately out of her mouth she asked 'How do you talk to him?'. I stared at her for a while and said that he spoke English. She was embarrassed and made a quick escape.

Well, yesterday I have a new co-worker that sits next to me. We were talking about our family, etc and I mentioned that we were going to England/Wales again. She asked me why, I explained again that my husband was Welsh (blank look) and she said 'but how do you communicate with him?'

The next time this happens to me should I say pictures and sign language or something completely different?

Birthday Dilemma

My birthday is in 10 days.

I have NO (zero) money.

I don't want to celebrate my birthday in any expensive way, obviously because I can't afford to.

1. What are some suggestions?

Also, my family keeps badgering me about what I want for my birthday and I don't really know.
I reaaaally want a G1 (the phone with T-mobile) but it equates back to money, since I can't afford to add internet to my plan, so I'm not going to ask for that, and I probably won't ever get it.

What should I ask for my birthday? They wont stop asking me.

TQC, I need your fashion advice. My mother does not know how to dress herself and will NOT take my advice.  She's short and stocky (5'3, around 170 lbs and curveless) and because of her shape she finds all shirts/blouses to be horribly unflattering. She has a small chest, and no waist which only causes more problems for her when shopping for shirts. What kinds of tops would you recommend for a woman built like this?  i have my own thoughts but would like to hear other's opinions.

If the U.S. government created a stimulus package to put thousands of dollars in the hands of U.S. citizens where more goes to those with the least and ignores people making more than 250,000 dollars a year, do you think it would make prices rise so much they'd have to put $500 notes into circulation?

What is something that your parents (or other adult family members) have said in public that completely embarrassed you for them?

for example:
* When we were visiting The House on the Rock, my Mom started to freak out because she thought it was too big and you can't get out... Out of no where she just yelled "GOD, IT SMELLS LIKE OLD PEOPLE" right while a large tour group of senior citizens were walking by.
because we couldn't get out until the end of the house--we kept running into them. it was horrible.

* I was driving through a parking lot with my parents and there was a family of little people. My mom actually started yelling "THERE'S A WHOLE FAMILY OF MIDGETS... DO YOU SEE THEM? ERIC (my little brother), LOOK, LOOK AT THEM. DO YOU THINK THAT'S THE FAMILY FROM THAT ONE SHOW?" My Brother's window was open-- so I'm sure they heard. It was horrible.

(BTW my Mom is really not an insensitive person--she just says things without thinking sometimes...)

TQC, should I take a shower and go to sleep early? Or should I make delicious brownies?

I have a class at 8am tomorrow (need to be up by 7 at the **latest lol) and it's almost 10pm now, but the brownies won't take too long... IDK WHAT TO DO GUYS



okay, I've decided that I'm gonna make the brownies. Now my new question is, should I add some peppermint extract in with the batter, or would it be gross? I'm using the Joy of Cooking recipe here.

how can you tell if a guy is just a looky-loo or if he's likewise doing the flirty eye thing people are so fond of?

dog owners:

does your dog like to chew their chewies, like bones, rawhide, etc. on you? my beagle is currently chewing something and using my feet as a plate.
