  • Is it necessary to wear clothes while one is alone at home?

    Best answer: Not really. Just make sure you can't be seen from any public sidewalk, or you could be charged with indecency.

  • Would you confront your maid if something is missing?

    I am not accusing anyone in stealing. We invite maids from time to time. Recently I bought a huge bag of Xmas decorations - collectibles worth over $200. That bag was put on the sofa in the basement. I know 100 per cent that we put it there since my husband remembers it as well. I looked through the whole house for... show more
    I am not accusing anyone in stealing. We invite maids from time to time. Recently I bought a huge bag of Xmas decorations - collectibles worth over $200. That bag was put on the sofa in the basement. I know 100 per cent that we put it there since my husband remembers it as well. I looked through the whole house for this bag and could not locate it. I am afraid that they could throw the bag away in a trash can by accident. I do not want to accuse them or hurt their feelings but after the cleaning the bag is missing. I doubt they would take it for themselves lol Anyway would you ask them politely if they put it anywhere..?

  • How to deal with impatient people?

    Like a friend of mine, if we're at a restaurant and literally 1 minute after we order, he's bitching about how long it's taking (full service restaurant mind you)

  • Lady at gym who boxes, in the cardio room instead of in the empty classroom: would you be annoyed?

    Best answer: It's not your right to demand anything, but you could always ask them if they wouldn't mind using the empty room, as you find it distracting. But they have a right to refuse. You could always go at a different time of day - just 30 minutes later or earlier? But why on earth would you say that she is... show more

    You could always go at a different time of day - just 30 minutes later or earlier?

    But why on earth would you say that she is encouraging violence against women by boxing? How is that encouraging violence against women? It's the opposite - she's learning to defend herself.

  • How can I ask one of my Facebook friends to block or unfriend my cousin?

    I work as a mentor and opened a website in my area of specialty. I have been earning a lot ever since I opened my website because I am sharing many tips and sell specialized items.

    I work as a mentor and opened a website in my area of specialty. I have been earning a lot ever since I opened my website because I am sharing many tips and sell specialized items. My cousin in Spain ended up unemployed and I told him to open a website on something he loves and in spare time blog about it. Well, turns, after all the free help and coaching, he is copying my ideas and opened a website on the exact same topic I blog about even though he has 0 experience and there are zillions other topics to choose. He is now even blocking my IP so I cannot see what he is doing. Anyhow, on top of that, he has asked friendship to one of my clients. I think he is stalking me and wants to create his own "following." I would like my client to unfriend him because of all he has done.

  • I don’t have to give you a wedding gift just because you think I should. Nor I’m obligated to do so. Also, don’t ask for cash gifts...?

    I have been invited to a relative’s wedding and I declined the invitation due work schedule. The bride however, (distant cousin) requested a gift. When I told her a wedding invitation was not an invoice, she took offense and proceed to tell everyone in the family about my lack of etiquette. Etiquette or not, I... show more
    I have been invited to a relative’s wedding and I declined the invitation due work schedule. The bride however, (distant cousin) requested a gift. When I told her a wedding invitation was not an invoice, she took offense and proceed to tell everyone in the family about my lack of etiquette. Etiquette or not, I believe a wedding gift is not an obligation. If I have to pay for my seat at anyone’s wedding then might as well just go to a restaurant where at least I’ll get decent food and no gift requiremts. How wrong am I?

  • As a teacher, do I have to offer my student condolences if their family member dies?

    A student emailed me that he would miss class due to a family member's death. Do I have to offer condolences in the reply email? Would it be seen as very disrespectful of unprofessional if I simply wrote "thanks for letting me know"?

  • Why is being honest and straight to the point considered so awful in today's society?

    I have a terribly nosey neighbor who always makes comments about me/my children when we are in our back yard playing. One day she made a comment that infuriated me, so the next time I saw her, I told her that I did not want to talk to her again, ever. Why is that so bad?

    I'm a barista. A day ago in the middle of a huge rush I made a frapp for 2 kids. The blender was making a weird noise and I was like hmm weird. I go to pout the drinks and some plastic thing that goes in the top of the blender seemed to be floating around. I think to myself "no big deal, found the noise" poured the drink and gave it to the kids. The mom comes back 2 minutes later with a sharp piece of plastic in her hand saying it was in her kids drink. I knew right away how dumb I was. WHY DIDN'T I THINK ABOUT THE PLASTIC GETTING IN THE DRINK? I ended up remaking the drink and giving them 5 bucks worth of free stuff. I also said sorry many times and the mom said it was fine but she seemed pretty passive aggressive. Should I tell my bosses what happened? I have checked the Facebook page and have found no reviews from her so I feel like if she would have left a bad review she would have already. I am however afraid of her coming in and talking to my bosses about it, just mentioning it or whatever. Should I just pray it slides under the radar or should I tell my bosses what happened? It's all I've been thinking about since it happened. I don't know if I'm making it a bigger deal than it is but it seems like a big deal. Help.

  • Should I reply this email from my prof?

    Best answer: I usually send an email back saying 'thank you, see you at such and such time'. I feel it lets them know I value their time.

  • Do you think this is fair?

    Best answer: Yes. I think it's fair. YOUR husband is responsible for bringing a dish. You have no direct ties to the event. I fail to see where this is making all the wives do the cooking. It is a case by case and relationship by relationship basis. Just because most of the wives do this task for their husbands, still... show more
    Best answer: Yes. I think it's fair. YOUR husband is responsible for bringing a dish. You have no direct ties to the event. I fail to see where this is making all the wives do the cooking. It is a case by case and relationship by relationship basis. Just because most of the wives do this task for their husbands, still doesn't obligate you. Feel free to tell your husband to do it himself. Or you will do it if he cleans up the garage or whatever. But in some relationships that would be getting a bit petty.

    On the other hand, I am single. I find it unfair when they invite spouses to such functions. Not only is the company putting twice the expense into my fellow employees as they are to me. I also have to put up with jealous spouses, and couple arguments. Also going to a work event where I should know everyone, and really end up knowing half.

    There are 4 members of the Administrative Staff and each year the office manager spends $25 dollars on us each... (She gets us a gift card). We always go in on a gift together for her. The one member doesn't want to spend more than $5 a piece for her.... I said “well can we at least bump it up to 10?” But she doesn’t want too. I told her if need be I’ll just pitch in more, and we can act like it’s from all of us. I just don't feel comfortable getting something of $25 value, and pitching in $5 towards that person. Christmas is once a year, can’t we open the pocket books a little? I hate cheap people, she brings in McDonalds Breakfast everyday, I feel like telling her to skip a day and then she’d have the money.
