• Was this the best move?

    Best answer: It's the right thing to do to keep good mental health. We can't change others we can only be aware of how we respond and letting it go is the best way.

  • My professor called me inconsiderate?

    Alright so my coordinator at the university's disability office sent an email to my professor saying I was being inconsiderate for requesting that he look for an take-home exam, as an email attachment for a course which he gave me an F because I didn't submit it before the deadline.

    Alright so my coordinator at the university's disability office sent an email to my professor saying I was being inconsiderate for requesting that he look for an take-home exam, as an email attachment for a course which he gave me an F because I didn't submit it before the deadline. She also said that she cannot 'force' him, which was not what I had intended. He had said he didn't see the email because of how fast things roll down the screen, and then said he would submit a grade appeal. But I'm convinced that he was just saying that because he was angry only to rant at me when the day he suggested comes. And my coordinator said that there are these things called "rules" for everybody to follow. I may be misreading her facial expressions and mannerisms but that day she came up to me three times when I had an appointment with someone else and said "Do you have an appointment with me?" when I didn't. I do have some mental illnesses, but that doesn't exonerate what I had done. And sorries always worsen the situation I believe I have started a process of deteriorating relationships with other people. Sorry for being a waste of your time

  • Why would someone I'm not that close with confide in me about some personal struggles but not go to her friends or family?

    I'm one of the only ones who knows and she doesn't like telling her friends and family. Is it fair that she asked that the conversations be kept confidential and private? I'm older than her so maybe she feels more comfortable?

    There are about a dozen.children living on my block. They play outside a lot, rain or shine. I suppose their mother's kick them outside during the daylight hours, and lock their doors. These loud & rowdy kids play with different types of balls, toy airplanes & water rockets, boomerangs, flying Barbie dolls, and rump ropes & whatnot. They used to march up my driveway, bang on my door & ask me if they can.go.get their toys. I always say "No!" & scare them off my property. Now they've taken to sneaking into my backyard to retrieve their §h!tTy t0ys themselves. I grow pot back there & do not want any brats running around in my yard. I have thrown bricks at them recently. But a little. red haired punk who was looking for his kickball informed me his daddy is a cop & he'd snitch if I continued to throw the bricks. I threatened to tell his mommy anout his behavior, but the kid ran off. Who is in the rigjt here? Can I throw the bricks at the brats, or should I just let them take over the neighborhood?

    My partner and I regularly throw/attend dinner parties amongst our peers who are wildly regarded as culturally and intellectually sophisticated. Most of the people who attend our dinner parties have impressive jobs, interesting hobbies, are cultivated and well traveled. However, one of our dear friends has now got a girlfriend who is a bit dim. Last time we had a little get together, she started talking about how she likes the books of Ayn Rand. Everyone else was so embarrassed and I was blushing so hard I could feel it. This woman is obviously an idiot and we're thinking of throwing a dinner party next month and her boyfriend is funny and smart, but if she comes with him, we'd rather not invite him. Can we invite him but tell him his girlfriend is not welcome because she is an idiot who likes Ayn Rand? Also she is an Australian.

  • 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.

  • 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
    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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

So should I report this elderly freak as a drunk so the cops will do something about this crazy guy?????

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

    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.
