I'm filling out paperwork to file in small claims court, and one of the forms states:

SPECIAL NOTE: The name of the person or business you are suing must be exact. If you make a mistake and list the wrong name, or leave out any part of any name, you may not get
your money.

I have no idea what this girl's middle name is. I searched Google, and have come up with nothing and have no other way of getting it.

You've accidentally dropped something in the toilet. Are you likely to try and retrieve it?
Would it make a difference if you've already utilised the toilet?

EDIT: Okay, first scenario you've dropped something sentimental. Second scenario, you've dropped a hair clip/tie or the button from your pants popped off and landed right in, etc. What to do?

Hotels are gross.

What is the worst hotel experience you've ever had?

I just went to bed at the Hotel Phillips in Kansas City, Missouri and the mattress was soaked with what I assume was the previous occupant's urine. I didn't notice it until it soaked through the mattress pad adn I was all "What the hell? Why is it wet? OH GOD IT IS STRANGER PEE OH GOD OH GOD."
Don't ever go to this hotel. Ever.

guys, i’m fucking sick of this. i’m 23 and haven’t been able to score a better job than a fucking cook at a local fast food joint. what makes it worse is that i live in a small town so business is pretty limited, and where i work is the only place that’ll hire high school graduates. i’d get the hell out of this town if i could actually drive too, but i’ve failed every damn test I’ve ever taken. i’m socially awkward, even my co-workers fucking hate my guts. i have repressed lust for one of my best friends too; she’s athletic, smart and a gorgeous southern bell. i love her. you know what it’s like; i’ve been friend zoned real hard. she’s my only real friend, besides this one kid, who i’m pretty sure is only hanging around me because he is mentally challenged. i guess he’s the only one that can tolerate me. my pet is incredibly needy and leaves weird slime everywhere.

how can i turn things around for myself?

My bf and I were comparing male and female orgasms, and he said guys have to wait 30 minutes after they orgasm/ejaculate before they can do it again. I had heard about this, but he said afterwards that if a guy ejaculates every half hour more than 3 times in a row, it's dangerous to his health to the point of near death.

Is this true? Is it even partly true, and to what degree? Or is it more than true, and you have a friend of a friend of a cousin of a friend, who died after ejaculating too much during a hot night?

Bonus if you have resources to back it up online, 'cause googling did not help me answer this.

there is this guy, we had drunken sex and he is from the same uni and same faculty although my senior. We had it another time after that and we does talk to me whenever he sees me but he refuses to add me on facebook and he has blocked me.. my friends say he was using me.. Was he just using me for some meat??

Edit:i was the one drunk.. he just had a couple shots..

I've never done this before...

I'm going to get applications today for my first job (yay?). Should I dress up for this, or is that only for an interview? I'm mostly applying at locally owned businesses (bakery, sandwich shops, monogramming business, etc.). When I go in, do I ask the person working at the counter for an application or do I ask to speak with the manager? Also, should I fill in the application there or should I take it home and do it?

Thanks for any help!

Question for New Yorkers...

Hi, all--I'm going to NYC for a long weekend and I'd like to know the following: where should I have brunch?

My preferences are as follows:

1. Nice-ish, rather than greasy-spoon/grungy, but not ridiculously fancy. A brunch cocktail list is a plus, a $40 omelet is a minus.

2. Manhattan is preferred but not necessary--we're staying on Union Square and know our way around New York pretty well.

3. Being able to walk in on a Sunday is a plus, although I'll probably make a reservation anyway.

Thanks! If you have places in mind that don't fit this bill but you'd like to recommend anyhow, fire away.

The funeral home

Why do they even call it a funeral HOME? Nobody stays there for any length of time, it should be called a funeral pay-by-the-hour cheap motel or something.

So my mom died a few years ago. I remember when I went to the funeral home to do all the paperwork. I just did it earlier that year with her when her husband died, so I knew the drill well enough. But this was different. Alas, this time my mother wasn't with me. This time, I was all alone.

I braced myself with a stiff drink or two (at 11:00 a.m.) and gave myself a good stern talking to about NOT crying in the funeral home. I am pleased to say that I had enough self-control to not cry during that whole time although I was crying in the parking lot minutes before. Ah, us stoic Scottish bastards; I come from strong stock, I do. The funeral director made it sooo much easier than it could have been with his dry macabre sense of humor (not unlike my own). First things first, I made him take me through the casket selections on display even though he knew damn well that my mother was to be cremated without any frills. I had never been in a casket show room, indeed never caressed a casket before and trailing my hand along the different textures in the room, I dreamily wondered if he ever snuck in there late at night and crawled into the rubber gasket-sealed, scrolled metal model number 892 with the removable gilded angels mounted on each corner (so that each family member - up to a maximum of four! - could take a piece of casket home with them) and the extra plump satin pillow and lining. I was enamored. If I worked there myself, I certainly would have crawled in one at some point during my tenure. Perhaps even with a loved one, preferably alive.

As he went off to do the paperwork, I went back into the casket viewing room by myself and opened the child-size coffin sitting forlornly in the corner - it was a white lace motif on the outside and frothy pink frills on the inside - and thought about how these people could prey upon the bereaved day after day like that. When he returned, I asked the funeral director how he managed to do it for a living and he assured me that the field was an acquired taste and one that took a bit of wall-building in the beginning so that a person doesn't bring their job home with them at the end of the day. He said he would show me out and walked me to the door. And then out across the parking lot. And then right up to my car and held the car door for me. Do you think it inappropriate that he asked me if I wanted to get a drink with him sometime? I was half-tempted because secretly, I really wonder what that casket would feel like to lay in it sipping a mint julep when that rubber gasket-sealed lid came down.

Another boss question

I'm working a temp job (for the summer) where I'm expected to get a certain amount of work done every week. I always meet my deadlines, and it's very hands off. I don't really ever see my 'boss' but he just came in to talk to the coworker next to me (who he's pretty good friends with) and didn't acknowledge me at all. I haven't even talked to my boss in like two weeks, though I haven't really needed to, since the work is so hands-off and can even be done from home. Does he hate me? Am I just paranoid? Was it rude to not acknowledge me?

DK/DC Have you ever worked a 'temp' job? What was it like? Any temp job horror stories?

Two of your closest friends have hooked up (had sex) after having just met each other once. They haven't used protection, though she is on the pill. He has been sexually active with multiple partners in the past year (and has on occasion not used a condom). She has had one partner.

As their friend, should you raise concerns about the lack of safe sex and try to encourage them to use protection? Or should you just not say anything and stay out of it? (they are both adults).

1. Why? Why not?

There's this girl I go to uni with. I've known her since second year (now in fourth) but we've never really been friends. No reason, we're just both kind of socially awkward.

Anyway, it's Facebook! We've started talking recently, which is great, and we've hung out (and gotten drunk, and she fractured her ankle, heh). Point is, I've kind of got a crush on her.

Being all awkward as I am, I haven't gotten the nerve to ask her if she's seeing anyone. I've kind of gathered that she's not, but I don't know. Anyway, we chatted until about 3am this morning, and I woke up and had this crazy idea: tell her I like her.

I figure she can either reply positively, which is great, or negatively, which is also okay because at least then I know and we can be friends properly. She is a lot of fun, so being friends would be rather awesome.

I had someone do this once, and I really admired it. Of course, I was interested, so I didn't see what happens when the receiving party is not, but I figure people get crushes all the time, so it'd be no big deal.

Anyway, TQC, what do you think? Could I totally ruin my chances at friendship and be alone forever, or is this really going to work the way I think it is? Should I send the email?

TQC, I am tired all the time. I do have a messed up sleep schedule at the moment, but even when I was in high school and getting up early every morning and going to bed at 10 pm, I was still tired all day, every day. And it's not just the tired where you can push yourself through it to do something--I seriously am so tired that if I can, all I will do is stay in bed or on the couch all day. Horrible, I know. I exercise, but afterward, I feel like dying. I don't have the energy to make it through even a short walk.

I have automatic payments set up for my car payment. Last Monday, my payment did not get taken out of my account. I didn't think anything of it, and just let it be, expecting it to get taken out the next week. This Monday, they didn't take out a payment again. I decided to call the dealership, and the payment lady wasn't in so I left her a voicemail, alerting her that the last two payments were not taken out and if she could give me a call to see what the issue was.

I wake up this morning, and my account is overdrawn because she took out both payments, without calling me back. I called her, twice, and it went straight to voicemail and I asked if she could refund one of the payments. She never got back to me, and now I'm going to get charged an overdraft fee.

I took a drug test earlier this evening (I'm renewing my permit to own) and my doctor just left me a voicemail letting me know that I had "passed, except [he] found a trace amount of THC," indicative of smoking pot around 25 days ago.

I haven't smoked pot since I was a teenager, almost 15 years ago. Even then, I only smoked it maybe half a dozen times.

The only other thing that popped up on the test was hydrocodone, which is from over the weekend -- I took 4 x 10mg pills on Saturday and 3 x 10mg on Sunday. I haven't taken any other medication in at least the last 6 months -- Tylenol/Advil included -- and I've ruled out food, since I hadn't eaten anything at lease 24 hours prior to the test and only drank water and a frappuccino this morning/afternoon. My doctor wants me to come back for a retest next week (he's not turning this one in) so I need to figure this out before then.

Guy + girl ---> friends?

Sorry, I wrote this in a girl's point of view, but do you think this could work out?

Say you and a guy friend previously had sexual energy with each other at the beginning of your relationship. But then things didn't work out because you guys had different values regarding relationships. But you guys truly do love each other as people and aim to keep it as a big-brother/little-sister relationship, and you know that you want to be there for him through his troubles and he for you. You weren't originally attracted to his good looks but rather his personality, if that matters. Also, he mentioned that he genuinely wants you to continue being in his life, and you yourself want this, too, but you want him as like a best guy friend.

Do you think this could work? Why or why not? You can write about personal experiences, too, if you want. Also, mention if you are female or male.

Today I was sent to a message saying that his phone is either off or he's out of the service area. He does not have a car and we live in a fairly small town. Where is he/what happened to him? Srs/non srs, doesn't matter.

ETA: I looked at his Myspace and it says he hasn't logged in since 5/11/2010, but in his feed, he became friends with someone 2 days ago. WTF?

It's been so crazy hot lately that it's hard to eat during the day and I hate eating too soon before I go to bed. What do you suggest?

One of my co-workers keeps freaking out and screaming over things and randomly talking to himself. Should I be scared that he is going to go postal on all of us?

When was the last time you felt super hot?

Yesterday and today at work when I was dressed up (I had to wear my big girl career clothes for my summer temp job) and everyone--including my boss--told me how great I looked and how I always wear the best clothes and shoes. The guys staring at me didn't hurt either! One guy even told me that if Donald Trump saw me in the dress I was wearing, he would hire me on the spot!

Have you ever applied to go on a game show/reality show/dating show etc.? How did it work out for you? Or if you know someone who did how did it work for them?

I applied to go on the Apprentice but never heard back. I also made a mock audition tape for The Bachelor with me pretending to be a pirate but never sent it in. (We were REALLY bored one weekend!)

Has anyone applied for a job with NBC Universal? I keep checking my status and it keeps saying my resume has not yet been read. How long does it usually take for it to at least be checked out?

What sorts of questions would be on an English placement test for college? Math?

Edit: My program is baking and pastry arts management, if that will have any bearing on your answers.

I have those tomorrow. I don't know what, if anything, I should refresh myself on. I haven't even looked at English since January. :x

When you eat quinoa, is it the main dish or a side dish?

If it is the main dish, what side dishes could go with it?

If it is a side dish, what is your main dish?

Isn't dish an odd word? I've typed it so many times in this post that it doesn't mean anything anymore. Dish. Hmm.
