I ordered a small pizza for lunch from Dominos this afternoon, and threw in an order of breadsticks to eat with our spaghetti dinner tonight. When it arrived, I put the breadstick box in the microwave and thought nothing of it. Cut to tonight when we open the box of breadsticks, and discover they are cinnamon bread. 

We ate them because why the hell not, but my question is this: is it too late to call Dominos and whine tomorrow? The box clearly had cinnamon in it, and the side of the box says very plainly that it's meant to be breadsticks and marinara. The possibility of free breadsticks has me wondering.

Do you think parents are right to punish their kids for things written in a diary? I don't mean: "Man, I got so drunk last night..." I mean: "Mom is such a bitch!"

I'd say no. A diary is your personal space, no matter how old you are.

tqc... if you & your partner made a decision to start trying to conceive a child, would you announce it to anyone? post it on facebook? call your mom?

do you have friends or acquaintances who've told you that they're going to start trying? do you ever think this info is a bit too personal?

Why is it that an ignorant, arrogant, egotistical, selfish person has a bunch of friends or acquaintances, even when those people don't like the person in question? But they keep him/her in their lives anyway?

For example, Jim thinks Bob is the most ignorant, arrogant, obnoxious, and egotistical person he's ever known and doesn't like Bob all that much, but Jim still talks to Bob and does things with him.

Like that obnoxious dickhead in a group that no one likes, but still gets invited to go out with the group.

I've never understood this. Am I missing something?

I have reached my breaking point. I'm ready to pack my bags and move far, far, far away. I want to move where I know NO ONE. Start over.

I had a miscarriage (Ya know, after I went through the terrifying act of telling my parents I was pregnant) and haven't heard from my 'boyfriend' since. Or anyone for that matter. It's like everyone is mad at me. Awesome.

If I move away, change my name, don't leave a forwarding address... how long do you think it will take for my bills, responsibilities, stupid being an adult to catch up?

i texted my ex Tuesday night asking if i could come get my records back and he hasn't said anything. things didn't end messy or anything, they just kind of.. ended. really anticlimactically. from what i can tell, there's no reason for him to feel negatively towards me. and he has a girlfriend now.


so, save him having gotten a new number and not told me, why hasn't he texted me back? how long should i wait to text him again? i've never had to get stuff back from someone i was involved with before, so.

So, now that I'm 18 my dad is pressing me to learn how to drive a car. I'm terrified of driving; the cause of being in a few accidents. Then I thought about scooters or mo-peds, b/c I'm far more comfortable riding a bike than driving a car, and I wanted to know: What are your thoughts, TQC, on scooters/mo-peds?
If you have one, do you like it? Are they dependable? Do they get good gas mileage? Are there any certain brands I should be wary of? What is a good price-range for a brand new one or a used one?

Your SO embezzled 50k from his/her work and asks you to lie to the police and corporate investigations about it afterwards. Your lie would put him/her in the clear and remove suspicion and you guys can enjoy the money...but if you get caught in the lie, he/she will go to prison and you will face charges. If you tell the authorities the truth, your SO goes to prison and you're totally in the clear. What do you do?

Your SO has a good job at some corporation, and it hires your SO's ex. Not in the same department. One day there's a major promotion in the works. One of the factors that contribute to winning the promotion is learning about these new industry changes being taught at this seminar in another state. Your SO says the only people vying for the promotion are him/her...and the ex. The corporation will put them both in the same suite for the weekend. Separate beds, of course. Policy is no family can accompany, as attendance at the seminar is limited and each seat costs a great deal and the corporation isn't paying for anyone else but those 2 people. Your SO asks if it's ok to go to the seminar and possibly get the promotion. What do you say?

Go. You're going to get the promotion, baby

 college grads: when you're asking a professor to write you a letter of recommendation, do you tell them what kind of job it is for so they can write about the particular skills you have that relate to that job? because, what do you do if you're applying for more than one type of job? do you have to keep asking them for different versions of a letter of recommendation? or do you just ask them to write one and not tell them anything about the type of job(s) you're applying for?

Is it really true that women who don't shave under their arms have problems with body odor?

I mean, I find it suspicious that women are supposed to shave under their arms because otherwise they stink, but nobody cares if men don't shave under their arms. That sounds like a double standard to me.

I get close to a lot of men, and I almost never think that they stink. I am quite sure that most of these men do not shave their armpits.

So why are women expected to do so? Why are women told that they're going to smell bad if they don't shave their armpits? Can't we just be honest and say we don't like the way it looks?

I honestly think it's stupid that we women are expected to shave our legs and under our arms, but men aren't. I mean, we can all have our preference over what is attractive, but it shouldn't be some sort of taboo if we don't. I admit to liking men with smooth faces, but that doesn't mean I'm going to see a guy in a beard and think that looks gross and rant about how nasty it looks and how I would never ever date a man with facial hair.

Can someone tell me where this idea that women smell worse than men if they don't shave their armpits came from?

I've been in several stores today and noticed that feathers are a new thing right now. That got me wondering if they actually plucked the feathers from real birds or if they're synthetic. What do you think? Serious answers only plz. I want the truth!

Crocheters of TQC, I need your help!

No matter what I do, I can't seem to properly transition from one row to another. I always end up accidentally increasing or decreasing. I just get all confused when I get to the end of the row and I can't figure out where the last thing I crochet into is, or the first thing I crochet into for the next row.

I know this sort of thing is next to impossible to describe over the internet, but does anyone want to try their hand at explaining what I'm supposed to do?
