What do you think of a landlord giving their bank account number to their tenant and asking their tenant to deposit their rent check into their (the landlord's) bank account?  Is this semi-common?

Inspired by a friend's facebook post talking about how her landlord did just that.

thanks

Quiet, you.

What's a nice but firm way to ask people to keep quiet about a birthday invitation because not everyone in the class will be invited? We're inviting 5 kids. One of the mothers has a big mouth. We want to avoid hurt feelings.

I received two job offers this week. Both put me on their rotas.
Obviously, I now need to decline one. I'm a total wimp, how do I word the e-mail?


I manned up. How much responsibility do you have in your job? Do you enjoy it? Do you believe you should do a job that pays the bills and just live for the weekend?

Lame-o question, but there's this website where you can get book/movie/music recommendations. It asks you 3 titles that you like and makes the suggestions based on that, mostly... Does anyone know what the website is?

So I am hanging out at home alone, and for some reason I got really afraid, so I went to the front door to check it was locked, and just as I got there, someone hammered on it.

I am shaking so bad.

It's just the landlord, checking for a leak from our bathroom.

When was the last time you got stupidly frightened over nothing?

Comedy tv-shows

Can you recommend some funny comedy tv-shows?

I love Modern Family, Chuck and Arrested Development. I've tried New Girl and Parks and Recreation but didn't like them all that much.

Random attraction stuff

Have you ever suddenly been attracted to someone who was previously just someone you knew, because of something they did?

I can't think how to word this properly, but I suppose what I mean is: have you ever known someone who isn't remotely your type, and not really that good-looking, but then they do some tiny thing and suddenly your whole perspective shifts and you're attracted to them?
