• Why are people so sensitive anymore?

    Best answer: People aren't sensitive. Endearments, pet names and the like are inappropriate in the work place. Touching someone without their consent isn't appropriate either. If you want to thank a veteran for their service try Thank you for your service Sir/Ma'am, not thanks buddy and don't touch them.

  • Should I report this senile old man as a drunk driver?

    Every day this weird strange old man drives around the neighborhood. He drives 25mph on streets with 55mph posted limit and often swerves off the road if you get close to him. He also drives by where I work out very slowly then U-turns and drives by slowly again. He also stops his car in the middle of the road... show more
    Every day this weird strange old man drives around the neighborhood. He drives 25mph on streets with 55mph posted limit and often swerves off the road if you get close to him. He also drives by where I work out very slowly then U-turns and drives by slowly again. He also stops his car in the middle of the road whenever I drive by which is freaking me out. So should I report this elderly freak as a drunk so the cops will do something about this crazy guy?????

  • Do you agree with what this counsellor thinks and said to me?

    Best answer: Yes, most people do know how they are supposed to treat others and
    it does boil down to they just choose not to. The choice they feel to
    treat people rude or badly give them a power. So she is right.

  • How to stop a guy from messaging me?

    Best answer: Well, acknowledge the fact that HE'S being rude by non-stop texting you like this. So I wouldn't be so afraid of being rude to him. Maybe try spelling it out for him "Hey, I'm not interested in you so please stop texting me all the time like this", or "if you don't knock it off... show more

Maybe try spelling it out for him "Hey, I'm not interested in you so please stop texting me all the time like this", or "if you don't knock it off I'm going to block you!" or "You know you're being rude by blowing up my phone like this when I don't answer back" If he says something like "Well, I just like you so much" you say "Well, when you like someone you respect their boundaries and take 'no' for an answer." Or just block him. Whatever you think is best.
    I'm not sure if he'd keep doing this forever without a response from you. But at least in part, the behavior's continuing because you're allowing it.

  • How do I tell an employee with OCD to stop rearranging things that I was assigned to do?

    Our job descriptions include setting up refreshments for meetings. Naturally when I set up the bottled water and canned soda, I line them up from left to right.

But when I came back to dispose of everything after the meeting was over, I noticed that the sodas and waters were both lined up like bowling pins. I understand he has a problem, but I don’t like the fact that he has to touch and change what I’m doing.

  • Do you tip at Starbucks?

    Best answer: No, because their job is not one for which tipping is traditional. I will follow the traditional tipping system as long as it is in place, but our eventual goal should be to replace the system, not expand it.

  • When an aquaintance or colleague assumes you are older than you are, what to say?

    Best answer: Don't say anything; she was probably already kicking herself for the gaffe, and the least said soonest mended. But you don't say how she came to tell you her guess in the first place. If you asked her how old she thought you were, or in any way encouraged the conversation down that route.

    Best answer: Don't say anything; she was probably already kicking herself for the gaffe, and the least said soonest mended.

    But you don't say how she came to tell you her guess in the first place. If you asked her how old she thought you were, or in any way encouraged the conversation down that route. I'm afraid you got what you deserved: "Go on, guess how old I am!" is the kind of game that routinely ends badly, and one of the (many) advantages of being over 40 ought to be knowing not to play it.

    If she, out of the blue, just blurted out "You must be 50 or so" without any encouragement from you; why, she is clearly just a tactless, foolish young thing who we must hope will learn better manners when she grows up. Graciously pass over the silly child's misstep in silence. See what I mean about the advantages of maturity? Being over 40 is nothing to be ashamed about, so don't be.

    Best answer: I guess that's the reason most second hand stores do not have price stickers which easily fall off. Often it's written with a marker on the item.

    But prices can surely be negotiable in a second hand store. It would be more straightforward to actually bargain.

    And yes, price estimation can vary pretty wildly depending who is doing it. Nevertheless a significant number of stores will not even sell you an item without a sticker, unless the person who does their pricing happens to be available.

    How wrong it is depends whether the original price is fair and whether it would have sold for that price.
