  • Why did this woman say this to me?

    Best answer: Thats actually pretty funny.
    Maybe you should have told her she was right. You WERE looking for the toilet..

    It made me uncomfortable when that happened during a filling appointment when the dentist yelled at assistant for not having all the equipment ready.

  • Am I "Soft" If I'm Offended By This Comment?

    I was at work with my boss and while I was training, we saw an old lady drop a pair of earrings.

I turned around and saw her, already leaning over, her fingers a half a centimeter from the earrings. So I decided that she got it. My boss looked at me like I was crazy and annoyed said, "Can you help her...." I then asked if she needed any help and she replied, "No, I'm all set". I feel awkward about this situation and can't stop thinking about it.

    There is this guy in my apartment complex who moved in a couple weeks ago. I met him at our monthly get to know your neighbors event. He seemed friendly enough and I friend requested him on facebook. He accepted. He doesn't post to facebook a lot. I've only seen two posts from him, I might have missed one. One was where he said he'd be gone for the weekend doing his National Guard Duty. I replied "stay safe" . and re responded to my comment with a thumbs up emoji. Then Monday night I posed a meme that said "Only 24 weeks until Christmas!" He replied with a GIF video that has the guy from House saying OH SHUT UP. I thought that was kind of rude. My roommate said not everyone likes Christmas. If someone posts something I don't like or agree with, I just ignore it. I wouldn't tell them to shut up! It kind of hurt my feelings. I'm thinking of defriending him.

  • Don’t kids do a simple “thank-you” anymore?

    Best answer: It really is not the "child's" fault as they were not taught to be gracious with a "thank you". However, the nephew is 18 years old and not a child any longer, but a teenager who is self absorbed, as many of them are at that age.

    Best answer: It really is not the "child's" fault as they were not taught to be gracious with a "thank you". However, the nephew is 18 years old and not a child any longer, but a teenager who is self absorbed, as many of them are at that age.

    I would stop gifting things to people who cannot take one moment to send a simple "thank you".

    I recently sent a $150.00 check as a wedding gift to my best friend's son and new wife for their wedding gift. This friend is a good, long time friend. I watched her children grow up and they were taught great manners. The groom is no kid anymore. He is 39 years old. He thanked me for the check in a lovely voice mail that was genuine and sincere. But, I will admit that I did expect a written thank you because that is the proper way to thank someone for a gift. But, in today's day and age, electronics win over paper. I guess I have to adjust my expectations.

    But, not to receive a "thank you" at all is maddening, especially when it takes just a little effort. Certainly less effort than it did for you to send him photos of his T-shirt choices. He at LEAST had your contact info to send a "Thank you" text.

  • Should I say anything to a person who is ignoring my friend request?

    Best answer: No. They are a colleague, you have to work with them.. Maybe they want privacy? Maybe they don’t friend colleagues? Maybe they don’t know you well enough? Maybe they just don’t want to be your friend, and that’s up to them... I recently had a colleague unfriend me for no reason, no arguement, nothing happened, and... show more
    Best answer: No.
    They are a colleague, you have to work with them..
    Maybe they want privacy?
    Maybe they don’t friend colleagues?
    Maybe they don’t know you well enough?
    Maybe they just don’t want to be your friend, and that’s up to them...
    I recently had a colleague unfriend me for no reason, no arguement, nothing happened, and we still work and speak ok, no bad feelings.
    Don’t ask them, you’ll embarass them and you.

I made the mistake of rushing into a job, at Ruby Tuesday's. I got trained for 4 days, and everyone was helpful. On the 5th day, my first day, everyone seemed to be against me for some reason? The hostess tried to get me fired, and the closer tried to make me miserable?? On top of that, I finally had my appointment with the neurologist and he told me I shouldn't even be working like that.... My first day I worked my but off for almost 5 hours, and only got paid 20$$$!!!! So I wrote an email and just stopped going to work , citing medical reasons which is true, but even without that, that job is horribe

  • Why do people “offer” to help if you are sick or feeling down, when they don’t mean it?

    If you did contact them and ask they’d make an excuse or freak out that you asked or think you were needy.. Which you aren’t. You are human and need help like us all. Why even bother offering?
