Have you ever had to do any DIY home remodeling?

What was it?

What type of budget were you looking at?

Did you cut corners?

If you haven't done it yourself, have you ever had to hire a professional contractor to do remodeling for you? What was that budget like?

Inspired by cherry_pizza 's post.

Have you ever not left a tip to someone who expected it?
I did that once to a Chinese delivery guy. I felt like a douche after he left.

Why did you not leave a tip?
I didn't have enough money, and then he called me a cheap bitch so I told him to fuck off.
It was an epic fail night.

I've never understood why the classic "nerdy" things are nerdy. Glasses, braces, being smart. Why are they so nerdy? They aren't. I mean, anything can be nerdy. What is nerdy to you?

For me, it's a personality that's nerdy. I'm not good with words so I can't explain but there are personalities that I consider straight up nerds...and they aren't the ones depicted or talked about as "nerds" in general.

And it seriously annoys me that having a lot of knowledge is nerdy. Seriously? gtfo.

Snow for the Snow-less

Where is the closest place to Atlanta,GA that has gotten a significant amount of snow recently? Bonus points if the snow will still be there this coming weekend. Extra bonus points if it will actually be snowing there this weekend.

You walk into your bathroom and there is an empty cardboard tube on the spindle/toilet paper holder. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much does this piss you off?

If you pick up a new roll and put it on the spindle/TP holder, how do you do it? Loose end over, loose end under, just balance it on top of the TP holder? (Why the fuck do people do the latter, anyway?)

There's a branch of christianity that hoists up some members on strings, where they soar about the church, acting as angels to the other members. I think this is dumb. To counter this dumb act, I want to start my own christian sect that's void of any strings.

Wanna join?

Wanna engage in no-strings sects with me?

 TQC, I have had some drinks.  As a result, I am  making a food that is rice, sour cream, sriracha, and soy sauce.  It has a delicious flavor.

What are some things you do that make you think "Wow, nobody else in the world probably does this"? Inspired by all these "Become a Fan" of pages on facebook, like "I listen to my voicemail messages just to get rid of the little icon".

My 24-year-old cousin is engaged to some guy she met four months ago. She's from a very conservative family and he's pretty much her first boyfriend. They met through friends/family playing matchmaker for her.

Do you believe the concept that sometimes you just *know* someone is the one for you and thus can have a speedy marriage? Or do you think that a marriage like hers is destined for failure?

Background info:
I have never been in a relationship. I don't flirt very well, and not good at the whole, meeting people thing. But I am just fine around my friends (i.e: they think I'm funny, I'm not substantially awkward)

I have tried internet dating for a while and think that I may have found a pretty nice guy. He seems to be into me, and has yet to raise any serious red flags. I dig him for the most part, except sometimes I find myself making up excuses to not like him (If he texts me something cute or too soon, he's being too clingy.) Just stupid things.
I basically do this with everyone. Make a long list of cons that I make up...

Why am I doing this? Do any of you do this? Whats wrong with me?

If you don't care:

Did you file your taxes already?
Were they e-filed or paper?
How long did it take to get your refund if you already received it?


Been a long time QTC, TQC my question is...
anyone from Vancouver Island, British Columbia?
Near Comox/Courtenay?

I'm moving from Ontario to B.C. in a few hours, for work... never been on a plane, never left home, would love to know people!

catching a cold

Several of my friends have had this nasty, horrible, spluttery cold for the past couple of weeks. Sneezing, big ugly cough, very congested etc. I have had lunch with one, given one a short lift to work in my car, had breakfast with one, otherwise spent time with them and of course then we have my office co-workers, who are all sick with it to varying degrees. And yesterday I started feeling it--itchy throat, tired, stuffy etc. So last night I hugged one of my cold-suffering friends and told him to get better soon, and someone opined that I had just infected myself. I said, "Whatever, my throat has been scratchy all day, I figure I'm doomed." And I added that I hug my child when he's a lot sicker than that and I don't worry about contagion. But seriously, this was a casual hug, not kisses. It was dry and faces were not involved. I'd worry more if he had wanted to shake hands.

Do you avoid hugging someone with a cold, lest you catch your death?

Snow Day?

It's reasonable to not go to work when the highways are snow covered, it's expected to snow 5cm more, work is 45 mins away and you're 7 1/2 months pregnant - right?

I just called into work and I'm feeling mighty guilty. I know I would feel worse though if I got in a car accident and hurt the baby.

It's a snow day here, and I am home with my children (ages 11, 9, and 8).

They've requested that I make them bacon, eggs, and toast for breakfast. I requested that they go shovel out the driveway so I didn't have to do it later. They have whined and refused to do so. Am I a bad mom for telling them to just eat cold cereal? I don't think it's right that I have to cook for them when they refuse to help me out.

Edit: Just a little bit of clarifying.

1. My husband and I spent all afternoon yesterday and half the night taking turns shoveling. There's maybe an inch of snow in the driveway to be shoveled. I'm more than willing to shovel again when I have to go out later.

2. I'm not allowing them to NOT do chores, there are some that they still HAVE to do no matter what. It was a simple request I made to them in exchange for the request they made of me. They're free to say no, but they do so at the risk of not getting a special breakfast that is usually reserved for weekends.

3. They're not starving, there's plenty of food in this house that they can prepare for themselves, and they get to play and do whatever.

My mom argued and pleaded with me to call out of work due to predicted poor weather conditions (all the schools are closed, but there is no snow yet) I called out and my manager was being a bitch and is really annoyed at me and now I feel like shit.

Have you ever felt guilty about something so stupid?

What if you knew your work was cutting hours for people trying to save money and you think they shouldn't be mad at you, especially if you being out doesn't make anyone's life harder?

How can I feel better?

Dr. TQC, today is Day Four of having a sore bottom-right wisdom tooth. I has no moneys and no dental insurance, so I can't go to a dentist. It hurts to open, chew and swallow, but I've been coping so far by taking double-doses of ibuprofen (800 mg at a time) and surviving on soups and oatmeal. It doesn't seem to be getting any better, or any worse, so far... but, people don't DIE from having infected wisdom teeth, do they? D:

What should I do?

keep on chowing down ibuprofen and waiting it out
go to the ER, baby in tow, and get a prescription for antibiotics

My mom was telling me a story about one time when I got in trouble in elementary school, because out of my brothers and sisters, it was the only time she's ever had to have a parent teacher meeting.

A girl asked me if I had a staring problem and I asked her if she had a bitch problem haha.

Have you ever got suspended in elementary school?

Will I Die?

yesterday after work I picked up some frozen hamburger patties at the store and when I got home I took my bags in and put the stuff away but totally missed that there were no hamburgers. later that evening I did remember and I checked my car and the hamburger were sitting there in the back seat. The temp outside was under 40F and they still felt frozen (not soft and squishy)So tell my TQC are my Hamburgers safe for lunch? or will i die?

I like my burgers just this side of crunchy if that matters.

How do you like your meat cooked?

Home Depot Service

I'm going to buy a Hotpoint refrigerator from Home Depot and I'm trying to decide if I should get the extended warranty. I know that extended warranties are usually a bad deal, but this is a "repair or replace" warranty on a fridge that will be used in a rental property I own. I'm thinking of getting it so I can give my tenant the contact info and she can go ahead and work out any fridge problems directly with Home Depot.

I'd like to hear from any TQC folks who have an extended warranty from Home Depot and have made a claim. Was the service you received satisfactory? Do you have any complaints or complements about your experience? Warranty war stories are welcome.

Dear TQC,

It really bothers me that I can't tell the difference between Mandarin and Cantonese just by listening to them. (Of course, the fact that I don't know any Chinese at all is doubtless a contributing factor.)

If you had the resources to learn one or the other, would you study Mandarin or Cantonese?

What languages do you speak, and if you want to learn any more which order would you cover them in? If you don't want to learn any other languages... why the hell not?

I speak English, passable Spanish, and basic Japanese. Realistically I'd probably cover German next, then Arabic, then some form of Chinese.

It says on the job description, I "must have knowledge of cooking and cutting techniques." While I have no professional cooking and cutting experience (besides chopping off the heads of trout at my volunteer job) I cook all the time at home. I know how slice, dice, julienne, mince, chop, sautee, pan fry, sweat, steam, boil, bake, and roast. And probably a few other things I can't remember.

Should I put this on my resume? If so, where? Or should I put this in the "Enter any other comments here" box?

mind the rules

Every time I ride in my friends' car, she doesn't put on her seatbelt or if she does, it's late. Every time. I put mine on first thing because it was always drilled in my head, but not her. Her car will make the warning noise the whole time until she either reaches the place she's going or she puts her seatbelt on, which is usually like 10 minutes or so later. I've warned her about it, told her that it should be the first thing you do, told her that it's not safe, said accidents can happen... it never works. It's annoying.

So, am I wrong to keep on warning her? Should I just resign myself to the fact that she's 21 and should be in charge of her own safety and stop warning her?

Do you always wear your seatbelt no matter how long the trip? (Not like moving a car around, but going someplace a few minutes away.)

And earlier this week in a genetics class (or more, philosophy of genetics) someone asked "what is a chromosome?"

Reminders and Clocks

So I'm trying to work/study from home, and this whole business is quite new for me. I'm bad at managing my time. Who isn't right? I'll just sit for 5 hours straight working on it, but then I am all burned out. So I want something to remind me to stretch every hour. To eat every 3 hours..etc etc.

Okay, okay, question: Does anyone know of a good free online/downloadable alarm clock (or other reminding device) that can handle multiple settings? For example I want it to ring every hour, two hours, 4 hours..etc. So an alarm clock that can handle multiple settings, without me having to set it every hour?

I just won't notice the clock for hours and when I do I realize I'm sore/hungry/miserable because I lost track of time.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Sarcasm is a way of life? y/y

Should I complain?

TCQ, if you received really bad customer service, would you complain?

I was at the grocery store using the self-check outs. I bought 3 muffins in bulk and keyed in the code... then entered the quantity of 3. The cashier froze the screen and yelled, "You have 4, not 3!" Then she added an extra charge. I was so confused so I showed her that there were in fact only 3 and I was not trying to scam the store out of 99 cents! She came over and checked and mumbled, "stupid" before returning to her little station. Then she left the charge on and went to go harrass someone else. I was in a hurry and didn't want to deal with her so I just paid the extra for the muffin I didn't have. It's only 99 cents, whatever.

As I was driving home I started thinking maybe I should write a complain letter. It just makes me not want to shop there anymore (but I don't have a lot of other options). Will someone actually read my letter or will it fall on deaf ears and be pointless?

Thanks for any advice!

Also, will you post a picture of the cutest animal in the world?

So I technically have a date tomorrow as long as classes remain un-cancelled, I think. We're going for sushi, and this will be a first date. My original goal was to attempt to look pretty nice, but with the snow all over the city, I am thinking wearing my cute new shoes will mean disaster for them. This means I probably will have to resort to wearing my doc martens, which I love but are not especially attractive, or for ultimate snowproofing, a pair of snowboots I have that really aren't cute at all but keep my feet really really warm and dry.

Should I wear the outfit I originally had planned even though it went with the black dressier shoes and not the (brown) docs or the (brown) snowboots? I really hate wearing black with brown, so this option seems terrible to me, but I was in love with this outfit.

Should I find something that goes with brown shoes in either situation? If so, would you wear the ugly warm snowboots or the non ugly, but casual shoes?

Should I suck it up and just wear my super pretty shoes with the original outfit? My biggest concern with this is that I literally just bought them three days ago, and really would prefer not to ruin them, and I feel like that'd probably happen in this weather.

Don't care - What kind of sushi should I get? I've only had it twice before, and haven't had anything super adventurous, but I like tuna a lot so I'm thinking maybe something with that. This is the menu, if you'd like to make suggestions of deliciousness.

How can I get this garlic smell out of my hands?  
I've tried scrubbing with salt and rubbing them on stainless steel (both several times) and it hasn't helped.  Other suggestions?

Can you chop an onion without tearing up?
I thought I could, but tonight was horrible!  My eyes stung so badly.

So after 2 weeks of tooth pain, i'm pretty sure it's my wisdom teeth coming through and causing the others to become overcrowded, in turn pushing one at a funny angle.
When will it stop hurting?!
I can see myself having to have the wisdom teeth removed, if not the one thats being pushed out. Can you tell me stories about how easy and not scary it is to have teeth removed?
If I do have to have them pulled, I should do it in my Easter holiday when I don't have any work, y/y?

1.) So there's this guy in my university Model UN club who is exactly like my first boyfriend in nearly every way, shape, and form. Same voice, same physical appearance, same mannerisms, same personality quirks, similar interests. I can pretty much accurately predict this guy's every move by thinking about what my ex would do. They have never met, and most likely never will. It's really really really fucking creepy.

Has anything like this ever happened to you?

2.) Who's a celebrity you've been told you look like?

3.) Who's excited for the Olympics?

4.) Toque or scarf?

If you happen to have the Blackberry Curve 8900 of the T-Mobile Dash, would you tell me about it? Pros, cons, just anything in general. I've watched a million [exaggeration] reviews and I am still undecided.
