Job Issues

If you feel like you've been getting screwed over by your managers at your (part time, minimum wage) job and you are preparing to quit, would you be "responsible" about it and put in your two weeks, or would you basically tell them to fuck off and just go in and tell them that you're done and not coming back?

Any tricks for making a hot and humid apartment less hot and humid? There's no AC or fans and we can't open the windows. I'm thinking of something like burning peppermint oil to deceive myself into thinking it's cooler. Would that work?

My friend is going to Paris this summer, and offered to bring me something back. I have no idea what to ask for! Suggestions? Must be small & fit in her carryon.

How often do you have sex?

Are you in a monogamous relationship? If so, how long have you two been together?

Bonus pts:
How often would you prefer to have sex in comparison to your partner's preference?

Nostalgia

TCQ, what is something that you miss? I'm not talking a person, I'm talking about something from your childhood (or for us old folks, your teen years) that either isn't made anymore or you haven't had in a while.

I personally miss ice cream with little chiclets mixed in. My mom worked at a gas station when I was a kid and, when I was old enough to cross the street by myself, I used to walk to the store where she worked and get a dish of it. Great during the summer.

I'm 22 years old and I work 60+ hours a week as a fast food manager. I work 2:30pm to 1-3:00 am. When I get home I can't fall asleep. I've tried sleeping pills but they make me feel like I didn't sleep at all. I sleep half the day on my days off and have really low energy. How do I get into a regular sleep schedule and all that when I work such long and shitty hours?

If someone paid you 500 bucks would you wear assless chaps to school/work? No?

How about 1,000 bucks? Still no? You're crazy!

How much would someone have to pay you then? Your ass probably isn't even worth it anyway!

important question: "wtf is this"

i just found this picture on tumblr, and i need to know what it is/what it's from so i can determine whether i need to worry about it coming to fucking kill me or not.

i'm just gonna put the link instead of embedding it because, real or not, it's kind of a disturbing picture. warning: this is probably not SFW because it's nasty and fleshy and weird and "D:"-inducing. http://i44.tinypic.com/rh8r2h.jpg
DEAR GOD. WHAT IS THIS. WHAT. IS. THIS.

seriously, wtf. is this from a movie? because if it is, i do not want to see it. the "x-ray" on the side, is that even real? the result of some kind of nuclear testing? oh my god it looks like a huge rotted face. i just don't understand. please help me i need to know whether or not i should start crying right now.

Tea Time

I'm considering buying my mother some Dragon Pearl Jasmin tea for Mother's Day and would love opinions:

Has anyone tried this type of tea? What did you like/dislike about it?

Is there a better advantage in taste/color/texture of the tea when using silk teabags over paper teabags?

What are your favorite types/flavors of tea?

I don't drink tea very often so I'd love to see what other people have to say.

Following this little problem from yesterday, I decided to go knock on their door. There was no answer. Thankfully, I didn't bake a cake or brownies to take over there because now my husband and I would be eating all of them.

So, I decided to call the police. What did they find? The house is unoccupied, not lived in for a good while though still fully furnished, and the smell was coming from a meat freezer that was no longer keeping its contents frozen because the house has no electricity. What? Who would do that? All that wasted meat.

Hey TQC,
Are any of you asexual?
Do you know anyone who is asexual?
I understand heterosexuality, homosexuality, pansexuality, bisexuality etc, but asexuality is something I'm still trying to wrap my head around. I know the basis of asexuality is the lack sexual attraction, thus having no interest in or having a sex drive. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible for asexuals to have relationships. From what I've learned in psychology, humans are in need for intimate physical contact (which does not necessarily pertain to anything sexual, ie kids want to be hugged and want to be close to their parents), but to what extent does this contact run? Or is everything based more on an emotional level than physical when it comes to asexual relationships?

How soft or firm do you like your mattresses?  How big is your bed?   Do you share or sleep alone?

If you share, did you get a new bed with your partner or did you just use one of your preexistant beds?  If you got a new one together, did you agree on the type of bed? did it matter? 

My SO and I are "big fellas" apparently (according to some dude on the street) so my double bed and his twin are kinda small for us.  His is also SUPER soft and it bothers me. So we're talking about getting a new one in the future if we move in together but I really don't want a super soft one like that.

TQC, I think I have a fifth wisdom tooth coming in. The back of my jaw hurts, and if I feel around back there, there's a small tooth-like growth back behind my regular wisdom teeth. I haven't had my regular wisdom teeth taken out because they don't bother me, and they didn't hurt when they were coming in. Has anyone had this happen to them? I'm due for a cleaning anyway, so it's time to go see the dentist: y/n?

Related question: Do you know of any awesome dentists in the Raleigh area? I'm here for college and don't have a regular dentist down here.

Do you like throwing parties? The planning, the hosting, all that? I hate it because then I can't leave when I stop having fun and then you usually have a huge mess to clean up afterward. My mom wanted to throw a graduation party for me and I said okay, only because she seemed really excited about planning the party. And it's been great because she's really enjoyed it and it's given her something fun to put her planning skills towards after have to plan her mother's funeral and such a few months ago. But, to be completely honest, I'm not terribly excited about it. I'm just not a party-throwing person.

Also, if you get an invitation to a party that is held someone other than the party-throwers house and it is addressed to you and possibly your spouse, do you assume that your children are invited as well? Actually, let me answer this one for you: they aren't.

TQC, I'm graduating with a BA on the 21st. I've made the decision not to go to graduation. I don't have any friends here and honestly I feel like shit about the whole experience. My family keeps asking me about the graduation ceremony and I have no idea how to break it to them that I don't want to go to it and would prefer no celebration of any kind over it. I have a history of agoraphobia and all of my mental issues are untreated right now. It's making me sick to think of being in some HUGE ceremony with thousands of people I don't know and then dragged out somewhere. I don't really like talking about mental illness with my family, so what's a good way to break it to them that I just want to be left alone about graduation?

Walking distance

How close does something have to be for you to consider it within walking distance? A friend of mine claims our apartments are within walking distance, but IMO they so aren't. They're about three miles apart. Personally, if I can't walk there in about fifteen minutes, it's driving/riding distance.

loans?

Hey TQC, I need a loan. I don't have any credit history. I've had my credit ran twice today, by a credit union and my personal bank and a score won't even show up. So far, I need a cosigner for everything. I don't have any negative things on it and am in good standing with my bank. Unfortunately, I don't have a cosigner. No parents, no siblings. I'm 24, live on my own and I need a vehicle because my car is about to die! I'm looking for a loan around $1400 to $1700. Is there any hope?

This is probably a long-shot but maybe someone out there has an idea.

Thanks!

I went on vacation with my boyfriend's family a year ago. One evening I was flipping channels on the tv and happened to land on Oprah. I'm not a devout Oprah fan....nor do I despise her. I'm actually fairly indifferent, but the topic that day was something interesting. My boyfriend's Grandpa got cranky and asked me if I liked her. I told him the above and he just goes, "Oprah is so liberal, she squeaks when she walks!" And also muttered something about her being the Anti-Christ.

Do you think Oprah is the Anti-Christ?

WTF does being "so liberal she squeaks when she walks" mean?

Two Very TMI-ish and Target-Audience-Specific Questions...

1) Question for females who've had surgery:

Did your menstrual cycle get delayed/messed up after the surgery? If yes, how so? And how long was it affected?

Edit: FWIW, I had laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery two weeks ago and I'm seven days late so far.


2) Question for males who're allergic to latex:

What symptoms have you suffered after putting on a latex condom? Feel free to venture into TMI territory — trying to diagnose the boyfriend.

Edit: He hasn't had any major symptoms like a rash or anything, just an itchy, uncomfortable feeling that makes him lose wood whenever he puts one on, so I'm trying to figure out whether I'm on the right track in thinking it's a latex allergy before we go to a doc.

TQC, how do you feel about ipod nanos?

I need a new music player. My current ipod (the 'classic' one that plays videos) only plays on one side of the headphones and I can't deal with it anymore (I've tried with multiple pairs of headphones, and it's definitely the ipod that's not working right). Since I don't want to spend $200, I was thinking about going for the nano with the highest amount of gb. If you have an ipod nano, will you tell me about it? I trust most TQC opinions, and I don't want to just go out and drop a bunch of money mindlessly.
