I don't get to make anything this year because we are going to my husband's family friends' house, and they keep kosher. My In-laws do not and do not have a kosher kitchen in which I could cook a dish to take. I have no idea what the family friends will serve, but at least it is not at my vegan, sugar- free, gluten-… » 11/26/14 12:36pm Yesterday 12:36pm

My mom can never find clothes she likes around where she lives, so I always buy her a pair of pants and a couple of sweaters or tops to match. This year, I also got her two pairs of shoes because she is also pretty picky about shoes and I saw a couple pairs I knew she'd like on sale. » 11/26/14 10:42am Yesterday 10:42am

My dad is a manual laborer. My mom is a receptionist. I grew up with other working class whites and working poor whites. It was a horrendously racist and classist area. As I grew up, it seemed more and more that everybody wanted to be above somebody else. I don't know whether that is a compulsion of human nature that… » 11/26/14 12:00am Yesterday 12:00am

My school addressed their fraternity problem in the 1980s by banning frat houses, not frats. The fraternities can use their houses for meetings and alcohol free social events. The houses are dorms for everyone and the fraternities do not live there. This cut down on hazing, except when the members had idiot dads who… » 11/24/14 3:26pm Monday 3:26pm

I am sitting beside a couple breaking up right now.

I am in a Pret a Manger downtown, so they are clearly meeting on their lunch break. He is telling her that he need to take 10 days to think about things and SHE needs to decide what she wants. Obviously the break is contrary to his interests, but he thinks it just makes sense for them to take these few days so she can… » 11/21/14 2:45pm Friday 2:45pm

NO. My former BFF found herself in this situation at least 3 times I can recall. She told the wife or girlfriend every time, and every time it went badly for her. At first the wives would believe her and almost bond with her a bit... But the they'd go with the guy they had known and trusted for a few years, especially… » 11/21/14 12:55am 11/21/14 12:55am

Oooh girl, awkward. I would respond as though you assume he is making a joke and he is aware that you two work together. Something like, "And here I was hoping I wouldn't run into anyone from work on here! Hope you get to take some time off for Thanksgiving even though it's always crazy at the office." » 11/20/14 9:12pm 11/20/14 9:12pm

Get it looked at! I know a dude who popped a large ingrown hair down around his junk and ended up hospitalized with a staph infection! It was a serious situation, apparently. Better to be safe! Especially because yours was so old it likely is a cyst and may be pretty deep! » 11/20/14 4:45pm 11/20/14 4:45pm
