If anyone has any general pointers for how to handle Thanksgiving interactions when one of your parents doesn't like the person that you are dating/living with.... I would love to hear them!
This is SO interesting. Please keep us updated!
@Josh Michtom@facebook I think this is why I don't like "ma'am"! I only hear it from people who don't know me and are mad at me for some reason, like, I parked badly. So it doesn't feel like a term of respect, although obviously it's more respectful than "asshole."
@OllyOlly that's awful! I would not have felt guilty at all if he'd lost his job over that.
@jjjsmith I cannot explain why being called ma'am bothers me so much, and I couldn't suggest a better alternative, but, ugh, it really gets to me....
@dromeda Same here! I did not end up in library school, but I do think about the possibility from time to time.
@Allison that's def strange and sounds like she needed pasta lessons
@ronswansonluva whoa congrats!
I'm going to a food festival type thing on Saturday and estimating that I'll spend $20 there. I also need to buy snacks and wine for my book club which is meeting on Monday, as well as some other groceries for myself, so I'm estimating $60 on groceries? I don't know, I've never done this before, and estimating is hard!
@Christy Right, so that's the dilemma! I could make money selling them to myself, or I could give them to the library so that they can make money selling them. Obviously, I want to support the library, but, like Ester, I could certainly use that money.
