Will you tell me about something weird that has happened to you at work?



One time when I was running the self check out, this older man (maybe in his 50s) was reading a weight lifting magazine and he calls to me and points to a picture of a super ripped dude and says "What do you think of this guy? Do you think he's attractive?" and I answered honestly and said "Actually, not really. I'm attracted to chubby dudes." and the guy was like "Oh man. You've hurt my feelings!" and I was like "... why?" and he says "That's me! 20 years ago!" and I was like "NO WAY!" and he showed me his license and it sure as hell WAS him. He thought my answer was so funny he called up his friend and told him the whole story.

It just makes me laugh to think about.

witholding credits/transcripts from a newly accepted college

i have applied and been accepted to my second 4-year university after going to community college. i only submitted transcripts from the community college because i fucked up at the 1st 4-year university, and was wondering, even though i have been accepted, sent transcripts, sent fafsa and registered for orientation, if i could be penalized or dismissed because I did not tell them about the other school? anyone had a first hand experience in this? thanks.

My sleep schedule is fucked.

Yesterday, I went to bed at 5am and got up at 2:30. Now it is 3:40am and I am not tired at all. I can see this getting out of hand pretty quickly.

TQC, should I stay up all night to try and get back on schedule? That way I'll be able to fall asleep early? Or, should I go to bed when I'm tired and just try to get up really early?

does your belly button stink?
do you collect lint in there?
what else do you find in there?
are you scared to touch the inside of your belly button?

for me, mine never has a smell or lint. sometimes i may find a string that my belly ring snagged. i freely touch the inside of my belly button but then again it's pierced.

my BF belly button stinks, collects lint and hes scared to touch the inside of his belly button. hes reccently been using a q-tip to get rid of stink and clean it out. he refuses to stink his finger while hes in the shower to clean it.

what is he scared of?

roomies

Im moving from my current home that I shared with a friend and her girlfriend/cuntbag. Whenever I get a little sad about leaving I think of shit the bothers the hell out of me.
Some of the things they do is call each other mama and daddy, and use the phrase "I know, Right??" and "Really, (insert name), Really?" and I hate it. It's constant around here!!!

Question, what do your room mates say/do that just annoys the living crap out of you?

My boyfriend and I are celebrating our 6 year anniversary today. His band is playing at the South Park Music Festival this weekend, so I won't get to see him at all. Would you be a little bitter in that situation? He was gone on our anniversary last year, too.

When did BBC American start turning to crap? They play the same MAYBE 10 shows now, and they're all reality TV. :(

How would you describe your neighborhood? Do you like it where you live?
The only way to describe mine is as Little Mexico. It's alright. Fits my budget.

Should I be offended that my SO interpreted my misspelling of 'ton' (in the 'I love you too' context) as a 'who'? Or is he just stupid?
i.e. I sent ' I love you ton' and got back 'who is ton?

Have the other persons past experiences ever influenced elements of your relationship?
My SO was cheated on at 17, and I feel like he's just waiting for me to do the same.

Song question, and I do not like wwto.

I heard this song last night and I couldn't make out, like, any lyrics. But I can tell you it was a female, slow piano song, and something in the chorus sounded like "flying... fly-y-ying". It was really pretty but the stupid jukebox decided to break when I went over to see what song it was, and I couldn't figure it out from looking at the selection. Oh and for those who know anything about music, it was in the key of G.

WHAT SONG IS THIS? It sounded like if Regina Spektor, Anna Nalick, and Norah Jones had a baby. But I don't think it's RS because I just checked a bunch of her songs. Halp?

What was the most confusing city you've ever driven in?


For me, it was Kansas City. Fucking hell, there's SO MANY FUCKING HIGHWAYS, the state line isn't where you'd assume it to be (I thought it was along the river, but noooo), the whole loop is the same highway number, and without mountains, I couldn't find ANYTHING that would help me figure out what direction I was driving in, HOLY SHIT. And people think Denver's a confusing place to drive in...

My cousin is graduating from high school tomorrow, and we will be giving him cash. Later this summer my aunt is making him go to some culinary school. Would it be cute or lame as fuck if I gave him a chef hat? I bought one yesterday because I thought it would be cute, but my dad says it's stupid.

On one of our early dates, after he had paid for everything for me, I offered to split the check with my sortofboyfriend. He agreed but said "I really don't like this". Since then, he has asked me to split the bill with him on every single thing we've done/gone to/eaten since.

Does he think he'll offend me if he pays?
He's not cheap, so do you have any other theories as to why he can't buy his girlfriend a meal or a drink?

I mean this question in the least moochiest way possible. I'm just genuinely curious.

1. Mustard lovers, what is your favorite type and/or brand of mustard?

I am trying to spread out my taste buds.

2. My computer is broken. The store I bought it from says that it's still under manufacturer's warranty. I called up the maker and they are telling me to go to a local computer tech. That is, they are not going to pay for it. However, it is still under warranty for them.

Looking for Shipwreck songs.

I'm trying to write a book. My characters have ended up in space (long story) on a gazebo (another long story, hey it's fantasy, not sci-fi). They have to stay on for about nine days.

One of the characters asks about music. I wanted another character to go into "The Ballad of Gilligan's Isle," but that would require paying for the rights, and I'm not sure a publisher would spend the money for a first-timer, so I changed it to listing songs you wouldn't want to hear in a gazebo in space. Problem is, I can only list three, and one of them was made up. I can't make up the rest of the list.

So, TQC, do you know any songs you wouldn't want to hear while you're in a gazebo in space?

ETA: I was going for more of a "reminding us that what we're on could go crazy and crash" theme than a "really, really annoying" one.

I have one that is ALWAYS writing us passive aggressive notes about things that aren't her business. The latest note complains that we had a basement door unlocked. We had it unlocked for 1 day because we were moving stuff in and it's to OUR part of the basement. Her part is locked off so I don't know why she cares.

What kind of camera do you have, and is it a good one?

I'm thinking of getting a new camera, but I'm not sure what I want. I have a Sony CyberShot that I got maybe four or five years ago, but I'm taking a lot of pictures lately and the places where I volunteer (or just hang) want to use the pictures in books and newsletters, so I want something that'll give me better quality pictures; the one right now makes things kind of grainy, no matter what setting I put it on. Any pointers?

Help!

My flatmate/best friend Paul was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. And I don't know what to do.

The anger & cruelness he's displayed in the past 6 months have really made me dislike him & I want to move out but at the same time he's still my best friend & I want to be there for him. Our other friend/ex-flatmate moved out because he couldn't handle Paul anymore & I know that hit him hard. He took it as though our flat mate was leaving him & I don't want him to feel I'm doing the same at a time like this.

I'm so conflicted because I've never been in a situation like this before. I know the horrible behaviour he's been displaying these past months haven't been entirely him but the anger I still hold towards him is hard to get over.

Help! Has anyone been in a situation like this before? Any advice you could pass my way because I'm lost at the moment.

edit: I should add that he's not in any treatment at the moment. He has an appointment on Monday with someone.

Pennies from...HELL

Do you think it would be a good idea to get rid of 1 cent coins (pennies)?

In Denmark the lowest coin we have is the 50 øre, so if someone's groceries ring up to 90,24 or whatever the customer ends up paying 90,50.

Would eliminating pennies make customers angrier at being "ripped off" a few cents, or would it be more convenient for everyone?
