Why does the area around my right eyeball hurt?

Have you ever gotten halfway though a heated argument and then just completely lost steam and been like "aw fuck it"?

Will I feel better enough to return to work tomorrow? I was home sick today :(

Do you use any sort of hot iron hair styler? What kind? How's it working out for you?

I bought an Amika wet-2-dry styler, only to discover when I got home that the girl gave me a different styler by mistake! I'm sad, I really wanted to try it out :C guess I have to head back to the mall tomorrow.

Yoga question

What type of yoga would you guys recommend if someone wanted to improve their posture? Would being fat be a factor?

The studio I'm trying out has Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga, but you can name others so I know. I want to try hot yoga too, someday.

Thank you!

~moral~ dilemma

So basically, my friend has been working a lot of overtime and yesterday his boss told him that over the course of 2 months, he has gotten paid an extra $750 because the accountant screwed up his overtime pay rate. His boss said he didn't really have to pay the money back since it wasn't his fault but my friend fears that if he didn't pay it back it would pretty much alienate him from his boss and the rest of upper management (he works at a small, locally owned restaurant so $750 is actually a lot to them). His boss also offered to take some money out of each of his upcoming checks to make up for the extra money.

So what would you do? Take a pay cut from each check for the next few months while paying off the $750? Keep the money and potentially piss off management? Something else?

Say you have a 1000 texts on your plan.

Does this include received texts as well?
As in you can say, send 600 and receive 400 texts and that uses up your texts?

If so, once you use them all up, can you not even receive texts?

Hey TQC, I need some help because I fail at using google today.

I know that merchants can't charge more than the listed price for using a credit card to pay for something.

Now, my issue is with "government agencies" or whatever. Can they do it? I'm not finding a 100% yes or no. The husband went to pay the water bill with his Visa since I forgot to leave him a check to pay it. When he told them he was going to use his card, they told him it would be 10% more.

So can they do this without violating the TOS? I'm in Illinois if it helps.

I'm bored...what should I do for the rest of the afternoon? I have 3 hours until work is over and nothing much to do.

When you're talking to someone who has a better social standing or more money or whatever, do you feel shitty?

Do you especially feel shitty when talking to these people when you yourself are unemployed or work at the grocery store?

How about dating these people who have these things?

I feel like a poor loser cuz the guy I'm dating hasn't even finished his bachelors but has a really well paying job and is going to to be CFO of the company he works for.

Me...I graduated in May with a Finance degree and I'm working part-time at the grocery store barely making ends meet. I've been trying since before I graduated to get a real job but haven't had luck yet.

I've been subletting in an apartment with a friend of mine all summer. though we don't always agree, it's been a positive experience.

last week, I tried to get tickets to a concert of a band that probably won't be playing for a couple of years after this show. since i failed to get the tickets, i assumed the weekend they were playing (22nd-23rd) would be open for whatever. when i talked to my friend, he suggested that maybe we could do something the last weekend i was going to be here (22nd-23rd). i gave him a tentative maybe, and told him i'll think about it.

however, tickets just opened up and my friend who i'm going with the concert bought the crap out of them. when i told my friend (excitedly!) that i was going to see one of my favorite bands play for the last time in what was probably going to be a little while, he was like "oh, so... i guess we're not doing anything then."

TQC, am i a huge flake? i think i'm a huge flake.

what can i do to make it up to him, short of not going to the concert?

edited for clarity: after the concert, i'll be driving back home to new jersey, not back to massachusetts because my sublet ends that week.

Sorry for the long story, but;

For the last two years, I've been living in a condo that has so many parking spaces for so many cars. Yes, it's a little crowded but still workable. Last night, I parked in my usual legal spot only to wake up to the sound of hammering. I looked outside to see that some guy was putting up a "No Parking. Towing Enforced" sign right where my car was! I went outside and asked the man what was all that about. Turns out the property manager for no real reason wanted that space suddenly off limits. Not only that, the man told me that it was a good thing that I had come out then because he would have hated to see my car towed because it was now illegally parked.

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being "meh" and 10 being "livid", how angry would you have been if you went to bed with your car legally parked only to wake up to find it towed because someone decided over night to make that an illegal parking spot?

Has something like this ever happened to you? What was it?

I  work in a clothing store that's aimed primarily at women aged 45+

We have bonus cards that we offer people, the bonuses being the more frequently you shop in our store, you will recieve discount vouchers in the mail. We have targets on how many people we can get to sign up for the bonus card.

I usually ask them once, if they say no, I'll ask if they're sure and explain the benefits etc. If they say no again, I leave it be. Yesterday our manager told us that we have to start 'not taking no for an answer'

How the hell am I meant to do that? If a little old lady doesn't want one, she doesn't want one. It's not like we can force them to take one.

How do you go about planning meals and grocery shopping?

Do you plan every single thing you'll eat for the next however many days and then go buy just the ingredients you need, do you grocery shop everyday to pick up things you're in the mood for that day, etc.

I think I need to fix the way I shop because I've been at the grocery store 5 out of the last 7 days picking up extra stuff I needed. I'm thinking I need to plan better.

Looking at my cousin's wedding registry at Walmart and Target. They have registered for THREE HD flatscreen tvs, and TWO computer moniters, and car mats, three cd player/ipod docks, a couch and chair, tents and garden gazebos (they have no yard)...... are these normal wedding registery??!! Or is it just par for the course for this idiot cousin of mine? Wedding registries are for linens and kitchen things like mixers and whatnot, right??!!


BTW: this is the cousin who is getting married Friday, Sept 11 at 3 in the afternoon and everyone gave me such grief for being amazed about that too :)

Do any of you have any favorite seamstresses on Etsy who do custom (easy) orders? 

I had one make me a dress that I love earlier this year. She's agreed to do (and says she's excited to do) another dress and a simple costume for me. But, while she's awesome and nice and I feel guilty, she's very busy with her regular job (she's very new at Etsy) and is SLOW AS HELL to respond and I'm about thisclose to hiring someone else because I'm tired of having to keep hound her (which I also had to do for dress #1). So, recommendations welcome :)

Did your high school have an "incoming freshman orientation?"

Before the new school year started, incoming freshman had to go to the high school on a Saturday to pick up class schedules. They offered tours of the school so students could figure out where all their classes were so no one was wandering aimlessly when school actually started.

What grade did high school start at for you?

Did you go to a school that followed the traditional 9 months of school, 3 months of summer break? Or did you go to year 'round school?

I went to year 'round school so I was in school July & August, on vacation September & October, in school November - february, off March & April and in school May & June.

I liked it except that there was no break between grades. I'd finish 10th grade on Friday and start 11th grade on Monday.

Hand broken month and half-two months ago, never got a cast

I broke my hand about a month and a half, two months ago when I got drunk and punched a wall. I went to the hospital and they gave me a splint. I wore it for two weeks and took off of work, but when the swelling was down i returned to work.... TYPING. without scaring me, can someone tell me whats going to happen to my hand if I dont see a doctor? Maybe there are some doctors or cast people in this community. Is it too late for a cast? I broke it around like June 23rd or something. I avoided going back to the doctor to get a cast because i have to work, or else ill be homeless. Help?

Having 2 step-brothers move into my house suddenly, there's really very little I can complain about, especially when one hears horror stories about step-families. However, they have a bad habit of leaving loud music on when they're not listening to it (for prolonged periods of times) and hogging the TV/front room. All i've been able to watch the past 2 months is football and crappy old comedy shows. I don't know them well enough to start an argument over it like I can with my brother.

I was never one to plan out my wedding as a kid and I feel like I'm the only one O.o I don't even think about it much now that I'm in a relationship. I think it's either cause I don't want to jinx it or be disappointed if it doesn't work out. I'm only 20, and I love my boyfriend, but I know he thinks about it more than I do. Am I the only one who's scared?? Be my therapist, TQC.

Work Etiquette.

TQC, I work as the shop manager at a tattoo parlor in Charlotte, NC.
We are open until 9pm Sun-Thurs and 11pm Fri & Sat.
Since I am the manager, I am the one that opens and locks up,
Keep in mind that I commute an hour every day to get here and another hour to get home.

Here's the situation:

If a tattoo artist starts a piece that he believes will cause him (and conversely me) to stay late, he is supposed to ask for my permission AS WELL AS compensate me for any time I have to stay over. We already work ten and twelve hour days, and the last thing I want to do is stay late.

Inspired by an awkward response on my previous post-

Do you think it is okay to boo a performance that you see as poor quality- especially if you paid for it and expected something decent?
(By booing I mean vocally expressing displeasure in a brief fashion "Boo, this sucks!" - not throwing tomatoes and attacking the person on stage)

If you don't think it's okay, why not?



As I see it, people have the right to approve or disapprove of anything- and to express it in a relatively non-intrusive and completely non-violent fashion.
And if you don't like this post, go on- boo me! I encourage that shit.

Can you suggest some for me?

Do you use an online dating site?
Why, or why not?

Do you think it is amusing or annoying when people purposefully put incorrect information on Wikipedia?

I was mildly amused to see on my old high school's page that the principal is listed as Mark East when he is actually Mark West.

validation post. sorry.

I'm a bookkeeping assistant. The bookkeeper decided to only come in two days a week for the next two weeks. On Friday she said that a tax check had to go out as certified mail on Monday. So, I took the signed check and mailed it. Today she came in and asked me if the boss approved for it to be mailed. (He didn't specifically tell me on Monday to mail it, but the office manager knew that it was going out)

Wouldn't you assume that he had approved it if she told you that it needed to go out?
Do you tend to stand up for yourself at work or just let things slide?
What was the last work situation that annoyed/upset/baffled you?

If you worked or is currently working or will be applying for banks, how would you answer this?

"Please tell us the area of banking of interest to you and why."
(You can indicate more than 1 choice)


Not interested?
How would you answer, still? (serious answers or not!)

How do you force yourself to essentially "get over" a crush you have on someone? Have you ever tried to do this? Did it work? Stories, please. (serious and non serious answers are always welcome)

To give my own example: I have a really inconvenient crush on my boss. He's a great person who is easy to work with and gets along with everyone. My concern is that I have found myself getting all awkward and nervous around him lately. I just want to get him out of my head. I don't want to jepordize my position, nor do I want to screw up the pleasant "working relationship" that we have.

anyone?

When was the last time that you were disappointed about something that, in the grand picture of things, wasn't really that big of a deal?

I was supposed to get my first tattoo today. I've been waiting two months and was a huge ball of excited/nervous jitters all day at work, until I finally got off and went over to the parlor only to find that my artist hurt her hand this morning and couldn't tattoo me. She was super apologetic and is letting me come in on Monday, her day off, to get it done then, so I'm not angry or anything. You know, shit happens. And I got to see the finalized sketch, and I'm completely in love, so that's cool, and Monday isn't far off (much better than another two months from now), but it feels like all that excitement from earlier has no place to go, and I feel all mopey and anxious for no real reason. :/

mouse trouble

I'm currently using the new Windows 7 and am having a trouble with my mouse. Every time I am typing, the mouse clicks over where ever its hovering and begins to type there. Its really annoying and makes typing difficult to do. I'm ready to freak out. I've tried everything I know of and google isn't helping.

TQC, how do I fix this?

So...I'm going out dancing/clubbing...whatever with my friend. I've only gone once before and I'm sort of at a loss. What do I wear? If you're feeling extra helpful, pictures are appreciated. I'm sort of chubby with big boobs and not amazing arms so please no tube top suggestions.


Oh and I went to look for a fondue pot in four different stores and no one hand one. So I ask, aside from a plunger, what were some things that you realized you forgot to bring when you first moved into your own place?

You have a brain tumour. Your life saving surgery is scheduled for 2 weeks from tomorrow. After the surgery you will be significantly less intelligent.

How do you spend the next 2 weeks of your life?

Why the hell are there ants in my apartment?

We're watching Apocalypse Now in film class. If you've seen it you gotta tell me, does that puppy die? We stopped right after they found it on the boat. I would read the wiki page but I kinda don't want to spoil the rest of the movie, but if that damn dog dies I'm not going to class.
