On WWYD: Bring Bottles In Yourself Or Leave Them for the Less Fortunate

@Christy that's not always true. We used to go through and put into circulation any that were in good condition, popular enough, and weren't already on our shelves or that there weren't enough of, and put the others to sell.

On I Don't Believe in Psychics Strictly Speaking But Also I Am Afraid I Will Give Them All of My Money

@Katni To be fair, I definitely laughed the first 1 or 2 times this was offered. It lost its appeal after being repeatedly put in my face. Also, I am pretty sure the sign says palm readings are $5, so I really could do that without being too upset with myself. I’ve never consulted any of these types of people (psychics, hypnotists, palm readers…), but that just made me realize: how many times could you really get your palm read? It doesn’t change, right? Seems like a dead end market.

On I Don't Believe in Psychics Strictly Speaking But Also I Am Afraid I Will Give Them All of My Money

I walk by a palm reader every day, it's literally just a house with a sign that says PALM READING. The (I assume) husband is always trying to convince me to come in. He has gone so far as to, several times, offer that his wife (?) will also read the dog's paws for no additional charge. I mean. That's like yelling to me that you are not legit.

On The Uniform I've Chosen for Myself

I have spent so many recent mornings spending too much time staring at my closet at a complete loss for what to wear, so right now this sounds like a great idea. It’s also this in-between weather that’s making it difficult. Has anyone else noticed in other cultures that wearing the same item for a few days in a row is the norm? For example, a woman might wear the same pants 2 days in a row, and then on the 2nd day pair it with a shirt that she wears on the 3rd day as well, and so on. I realize people could have multiple of the same piece like the author here does, but I’ve seen it enough to think it is a thing. (People from countries I’ve noticed it in: Italy, Russia, India, China)
