Driver's License

Dear TQC-
I'm 18 and I do not have my driver's license, yet. I have a major anxiety problem and I freak out any time I even try to practice driving (I am not talking about just being nervous, I'm talking about panic/anxiety attacks that render me helpless). I told my parents that I want to wait to drive and they are okay with that.    [The biggest inconvenience is that I can't "identify" myself, which is just plain annoying.]

Do you have your Driver's License?
At what age did you get your license?
Why did you get your license? (independence, need, just because you turned of age?)
Any ideas of how I can try to work myself through the whole driving thing?

You're at a baseball game and it's kind of slow. You opt to go on a food run for the group and everybody gives you their order and money. After purchasing it all, you're surprised that there's more food then you previously expected. You're walking back to your seat with 2 arms full of food and drinks, which tally up to more than $20. As you're descending the stairs, there's the crack of a bat and the crowd around you gets quiet. They start to 'ooo' and you look up out of curiousity. There's a fly ball flying out to your section. Wow. It looks like it's going to land really close...OMG IT'S HEADING STRAIGHT FOR ME!! You have one second to decide what to do. Remember your arms are full. So, what happens next?

I drop everything and dive for safety
I drop everything and try to catch the ball
I try and use the food as a shield from the falling ball
I try and catch the ball in my mouth
I close my eyes and pretend it's not happening and let destiny march on

Tongue piercing pain

I've had my tongue pierced for five or six years, I can't remember exactly how many. It's not unusual for it to hurt every now and then on the underside of my tongue, I think I tug it a little too hard sometimes and once every four months or so (just grabbing an estimate) the underside will hurt for a few days. This time it hasn't gone away though. It hasn't quite reached a week yet, but the underside of my tongue hurts quite a bit and it's really starting to bother me. I've tried changing my tongue ring, rinsing with mouthwash, and rinsing with hydrogen peroxide and water.

* Is there maybe another reason that it's hurting?

* Would it be safe to take my tongue ring out for a day? I've never had it out more than fifteen minutes or so.

* I'm not sure which of my metal bars is the one I initially got, should I go get a new bar from the piercer? (I've been wearing decorative metal or plastic ones.)

I'm hoping to avoid joining a piercing community just to ask them questions so I figured I'd try here first.

You find out from your mom or dad that your birth certificate is wrong. There was a typo when it was made and they just didn't get it corrected. The year of birth was wrong and you're actually 3 years older than you think you are now. How do you feel?

So my sister just gave birth to a girl! Her husband wanted to name her "Emma Grace", but his last name is Shin, and they finally realised that it'd be a bad idea to name their daughter "immigration". What other terrible 'shin' names could she have? We thought up Anna May Shin and Felicity Shin already.

Hey TQC,
Tomorrow I have a job interview and it's really important. So what are some good "end of interview" questions to ask? Should I even ask about how much they pay? Or is that rude? What is a good way of saying I am desperate for the job without sounding it? LOL

I love Hulu. Its great, I think its the best thing ever. I know they need the advertising to keep the site up, but I am so tired of seeing the same ads over and over and over and over. I would be willing to pay a pretty penny for an account if it meant not looking at the ads. They could still have free accounts with commercials, but for those of us willing to pay, perhaps they could work something out? Does anyone agree?

After looking at my credit reports yesterday, I realized that I should probably look into getting a low limit credit card or some sort of small signature loan to spend and pay back, so I can establish my credit a bit more. The only credit I have is my car loan, and I'm in good standing with them (no late payments, no missed payments).

1. What was your first Credit Card?
1a. Do you still have it?
1b. What was/is the interest like?

2. Aside from my bank, where should I go for my first credit card?

3. Any other good ideas for building credit?

4. If you don't have credit cards, care to tell/show me what your computer background looks like?

5. When was the last time you went to the dentist?


I'm going in for a job interview at 2pm today (it's 10:35am right now) and I've got my hair done and a nice uniform ironed and ready for when I go.

Any tips?

Edit: Thanks for the advice, everyone! I'll do what you say and be myself/smile a lot. :D

I have a dilemma. This weekend is the 100th annual Drake Relays (a HUGE track and field competition but also a HUGE HUGE party for Drake Students and Alumni). As an alumnus I have lots of friends (my whole group of friends plus others) going for the weekend. I'm not a huge drinker but I love seeing my friends, many who I don’t see very often. BUT I haven't seen my boyfriend since March 12th and he's trying to get off work for the weekend but I won't know if he can until close to the weekend. I've thought of having him come down from Minnesota with my friends and meeting me in Des Moines, but I’m not sure if he'd be up to that since he likes to spend our weekends together just him and I. What should I do????


Ok, everyone knows all the bad things that happen when you smoke...let's move past that for a minute.

i really can't conduct my life without the input of others, and my mom is at bible study

Earlier this year, I dated this guy I really liked, and we had a nice little thing until he decided to shit all over everything by doing everything he could to make me as upset, degraded and miserable as possible.

However, we have some very close mutual friends and while avoiding each other has worked so far, it's his birthday this weekend and his roommate (who is awesome) is throwing a party. Like, everyone is going. I do not want to go, because I don't care to wish him a happy birthday, but I feel like everyone will think I'm a bitter bitch if I don't go. I've already been instructed to attend, I have no choice. plus, there's going to be a keg of fine ale.

So, how the hell do I conduct myself?
Can I bring some other hot guy I'm hooking up with and look really hot?

I guess this is an etiquette question, and I'm hoping it doesn't turn into a shit storm like so many wedding posts do.
I'm unemployed and broke, a close, long time friend is getting married next month in our hometown, 1500 miles away. She knows I'm unemployed and broke, and we've talked about my job search for the last month or so, and that my attending her wedding was contingent on finding a job. My mom offered to split the cost of the ticket with me, which means I could go - but if I'm spending $125 to get down there, I can't spend money on a present. I know it's not *required* to give a gift, but I feel like it's kind of expected.
Given that my friend knows my financial situation and isn't the Bridezilla type, would it be in poor taste to attend but not give a gift?
What would you do in the situation?

what do you do about a roommate who has no respect for a sleeping person and insists on talking (very loudly) to her mother on the phone at 10:30am when she could very easily go outside considering it's a beautiful day?

i realize that 10:30 is not very early, but it seems like that kind of behavior should be avoided at any time of the day if someone is sleeping in the bedroom.

i want to kill her, but i don't think that's a very constructive solution.

EDIT: I've talked to her about it several times and i asked her kindly if she could take her conversation outside today and she flatly refused. It's gotten to the point where revenge seems to be the only solution.

what was the last thing that someone complained about that made you want to tell them to shut the fuck up?

I went to the movies on Friday night. Their credit card machine was not working. I ordered tickets online with my card, and what they usually do is swipe the card to get the tickets.
They are very good about taking the money, but it's not showing up as taken out in my account (my account recognizes that it has not been taken out, thus my available balance is at the correct sum). Should I call them or wait a few more days?

Do you find blowing ones nose in the shower to be gross?

When BF and I moved in together I heard him do it and called him out on it, I thought it was gross. Eventually I found myself doing it and now find it to be wonderfully convenient! However, I've caught myself doing it a few times in the gym shower and am horribly embarrassed and feel I should not do it at the gym. What's your take?

Service dogs?

Is there any legitimate way a dog carried in the arms/in a purse could be a service animal?

I know there are service dogs for a lot more than just blind people, but my impression was that all of them included the dog either leading or doing things that the owner has trouble with.

(Backstory: We have a HUGE problem with customers bringing dogs into our store; we have it posted on the door that animals aren't allowed with the exception of service animals, but EVERYONE is claiming their Bichon/Chihuahua/teacup poodle/tiny mutt/large rat? is a service animal. My manager told me that if the dog's being carried in their arms, is riding in the cart, or is in a purse, I can call shenanigans, but I'm not entirely certain about that)

So I was browsing youtube and I came across a video called "How to do nothing at work and still get paid."

Do you have any tricks you use when you want people to think you're working when you're not?

When I was a manager at Hardee's, I would go in the office, pull up random pages on the computer (drive-thru times, labor etc) and when I heard someone coming I would start mashing buttons on the keyboard so people would think I was busy. Once in awhile, I would venture up front with a concerned look on my face, unlock the register where we kept the extra drawer, and shuffle money around before going back to the office. It worked surprisingly well.

tl;dr maybe

So, I have two options for where to live in Austin this summer.

Option 1 is house-sitting by myself for a friend of my flute teacher's in a pretty nice house in a good neighborhood.  I would have to pay them for utilities, but that's it.  It would be not too far away from where I would be taking classes at the community college.

Option 2 is living at a student cooperative close to the University of Texas campus with probably 14-16 other people in the house.  I'd share a bathroom and living spaces, but I would have a private bedroom.  There would also be five meals per week + a stocked kitchen included in the $530, and I would have to do four hours per week of chores/services for the house.  This is the house I would live in.

For a long time, I thought Option 1 wasn't going to work out, so I got really excited about Option 2.  Since I normally don't live in Austin, I think that #2 would give me a lot more opportunities to meet and interact with people, as well as put me at walking distance to a lot of cool restaurants/shops near UT.  But the rent of #1 would basically be free, and it would be nicer and more private.

Which one should I choose?

Hey TQC. I'm procrastinating. One military question and one clothing question.

A.  My boyfriend will be joining the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) within the next year, most likely a combat unit.. I'd like to give him a nice gift before going away but I'm not exactly positive what I should give to him or what is allowed. I know they are allowed to bring things though. I just want to buy a bag (that's appropriate for a guy, maybe a backpack) and fill it with stuff he'll need or like, like razors, socks, a notebook, books, cds.. etc. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for this gift/is this a good idea?

2. Want a babysitting job? It's this Saturday night, 4/25, in Manhattan, New York City, for my 11 year old son while me and my wife attend a wedding. The idea is that you'll go out and doing something with him (like see a movie or go to an arcade or something else pleasant that you'll suggest) and be paid for your time and expenses, then go back to our hotel room and hang out with him until we are finished for the evening.

He's a special ed kid, which will be reflected mainly in his nonstop chatter, and possibly getting tired out sooner than you'd expect.

You'll have to be dressed at least to a business casual or evening wear level, because the hotel requires it. You'll also have to "interview" with my brother or his fiancee in the next day or two, which basically means showing up to one of their offices and not appearing unsane.

Why am I asking TQC people? Because you're one step up from Craigslist people. Don't knock it.

I am filling out an application for a job that I DESPERATELY want/need.  I must complete their online form.  The question is this:

Have you ever been convicted of a crime, including traffic violations? Be advised, you are not obligated to disclose sealed or expunged records of convictions or arrest. (In most circumstances, a conviction or indictment will not automatically result in your disqualification from employment. Rather, except as otherwise required by law, convictions and indictments will be considered only to the extent they relate to the specific job for which you have applied. However, failure to disclose a conviction or indictment and/or mischaracterization of a conviction or indictment automatically will result in your ineligibility for employment and/or termination of employment, even if the conviction or indictment would not have resulted in your ineligibility for employment had it been properly disclosed.)

 I house sit fairly regularly for a few friends. Basically keep an eye on the place, feed the animals, water the plants, etc.

No matter how many times I have been to that persons home I still get some sort of creepy feeling like I'm being watched during my time alone there. Like they installed nanny cams so they can watch me walk around naked, use all their shampoo, and eat all their food ..... I don't really do those things but you get the point.

What was the last great Craigslist ad you read? Will you share it with the class?

We have one cantankerous chestnut agouti Jersey Wooly buck for adoption (sorry-no pedigree).

He grumbles a lot, smells a little funky, and is generally unpleasant. Will occasionally nuzzle on your hand, and once you are convinced of his agreeable nature, will mount and molest your arm with the speed only a bunny with extremely malicious intent could muster.

We call him "The Wooly Bully," and love him dearly, but it's time for him to find a new home.

$10 gets you a box, feed, hay, answers to any and all bunny related questions you may have, and one darling rabbit whose offensive ways could have the power to melt your heart and warm your soul (or ruin your life; no guarantees).

Why would we charge a person $10 for such a devious creature? Well, even though we are re-homing him we don't want to see him end up as food for another pet. Feel free to put the $10 towards a donation to your favorite charitable organization (just provide us a little proof that you did, perhaps a receipt or invoice?).

On the plus side, this disgruntled bunneh is litterbox trained, doesn't mind being held, and [sadly] won't run away.

if you could combine any animal species/breeds, pick the size it'd grow to, and have it be all ready to go for domestic companionship, which would you choose? what characteristics from each? (what's your ideal pet?)

Class is scheduled from 6p-9p.
I have a group presentation to give, and my group goes first. I'm all set for that.
American Idol starts at 8p.
Game 3 of the first round of hockey playoffs starts at 7p.
(Priorities: I has them.)

I'm planning on leaving class at 7:30p tomorrow.

What excuse should I give my professor for leaving early tomorrow? Should I just walk out of class during the break without an excuse?
