How do you deal with a guy who is always flirting with women and leading them on, and then constantly complains that women are "stalking" him? What kind of personality disorder does this person have? And what if he is constantly asking you to be his girlfriend?

Doctor Thank-You Gift

TQC, what are your thoughts on thank-yous and gifts for doctors?

I will be having my final appointment with my physical therapist soon, and although of course she was doing the job she was paid to do, I’d like to make a point of showing my appreciation because I'm happy with the outcome of my treatment and all along she has been one of the most professional and effective doctors I’ve ever had.

I figure anything too expensive would be unethical for her to accept (and, uh, not really in my budget anyway), but what about something like a thank-you card and a gift card to Starbucks? Or baked goods that can be shared with everybody in the office? (Since the office staff was always so nice, too). Or just a card?

Or is it most appropriate to just give heartfelt thanks in person before I leave the final appointment?

George W. Bush
A department store Santa

A cat in a cage, who cannot be removed from the cage, and who will be yowling loudly and plaintively the entire trip

You have to travel 10 miles by car. Which of these transport options would you sooner take?

On foot, but you'll be the hindquarters in a 2 person horse costume. You have to stay in the costume the entire way, hunched over and unable to see anything

Fun at workplace

We had an annual general meeting at work, and the big boss said "I can't give you a pay raise  but I can give you a liberty to have more fun at work."
Do you have any fun at your workplace?
What do you do for fun at work?

Thoughts on *********?

What do you think about censorship? When is it okay? When is it not okay? What types of speech do you believe the government SHOULD regulate?

For example, I'm against most forms of government censorship, but I'm generally in favor of self-censorship (people choosing not to use offensive words, knowing when to shut up/not get involved).

[US-centric] How annoyed do you get when people yell "first amendment!" with regards to private venues and/or when others are disagreeing with what they're saying?

Can you think of examples of things that people are "expected" to do, but you've consciously chosen not to? A few examples in my life are: making my bed, wearing makeup, and washing my car regularly. I don't mean things that you wish you had time to do, and stress about the fact that you don't do them, but things that you've let go and feel fine about it.

Social anxiety whatdooo

For people with social anxiety/phobias: How do you deal with it while traveling? I applied for an internship that would mean traveling across the country alone and as someone who gets shakey just from using the telephone I'm kind of kicking myself for applying.

celebrity plastic surgery

So I was just looking at yet another gallery of celebrity plastic surgery horror stories. You know, the usual giant balloon lips with no edges, weird tiny noses, permanently surprised eyebrows etc. It got me to wondering: are there any celebs who've had successful plastic surgery that actually looks good?

Attn shoppers of TQC!

My mother needs a new winter coat, and preferably one that will last a while.

I found this one which is more or less exactly what she wants, shearling, boxy cut, single-buttoned.

The only problem is that it's plus size and my mother is, well, tiny.

So, do any of you know where I can find a decent quality coat that looks similar to the one I've linked to available in normal adult size or petit?
