On Thanksgiving Estimate/Open Thread

@LookUponMyWorks Me too! I kind of love it, though--it's so quiet and no one is bothering me, plus I feel productive because I'm At Work (even though I am doing very little actual work.)

On Thanksgiving Estimate/Open Thread

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!

On Honey, Sweetie, Chief, Boss: How We Talk to Strangers

@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."

On Honey, Sweetie, Chief, Boss: How We Talk to Strangers

@OllyOlly that's awful! I would not have felt guilty at all if he'd lost his job over that.

On Honey, Sweetie, Chief, Boss: How We Talk to Strangers

@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....

On Are You What You Wanted To Be When You Grew Up?

@dromeda Same here! I did not end up in library school, but I do think about the possibility from time to time.
