yeah, i definitely see it as a cat tail in the front, instead of the back... and maybe with kitty balls? the 'penile' play-doh extruder, however, was definitely a 'crazy parental outrage over nothing' thing.

i'm pretty sure this is what leads to incredible brand loyalty when it comes to ladies picking an undergarment vendor brand... once you go through the heartache/headache of eating the cost on ill-fitting or incorrectly sized pairs (because no, you do not return undies! gross!) and find a style/size that fits from a particular brand, it's not uncommon to buy every single possible color and stock the hell up. haha

i'm 100% sure feeling 'pretty' helped those two girls feel confident and better-aligned with their classmates. it won't necessarily stop the bullies from tormenting, but if they were walking a little taller they might not have seemed like such an easy target. middleschool girls are the absolute WORST. (generally speaking) they're so mean and catty, desperately trying to tear each other down. i wouldn't at all be surprised if you had also told me it was her 'friends' that were bullying the girls.

it's a clear indication of the slew of applicants clamoring for 'underemployment' because the economy is still recovering... ...which in turn is why the min wage should be increased, because obviously not only high school kids 'with minimum skills' are working food service.

GN: a lot of delivery 'standards' are based on your area or zip code. if an area has had too many reported thefts, they won't leave packages. but for most zip codes and for packages not requiring a sig, like books or if it's under a specified total value, they can just leave it.

a salesperson at a car dealership is going to shake your hand. actually, i'd think it was weird if they didn't at least try. buying a car is an intensive process, unlike...say...picking out a sweater for your dog for xmas. there's lots to discuss, like credit history and warranties as well as family/lifestyle discussions to help aid the sale. everyone has access to the KBB online, and you can clearly see what going prices are for various cars. if it sounds too good to be true, it likely is. i mean...come on, folks. FWIW: i'm pretty sure no one can run a credit check without a soc sec #. so, giving your name and phone number isn't a big deal...at all. carmax is the one to watch out for, though. if you let them 'run a credit check', they run it with like 6+ different places at once.

maybe he's allergic to some chemical they use to finish the leather on the shoes? i know that for a while, some dark wash jeans from american eagle smelled like someone set a tire full of used diapers on fire. like rubber, but not 100% just rubbery smell...definitively much more acrid. i'm sure others didn't smell the same odor, otherwise they would have been pulled from the shelves.

they're a HUGE thing in japan. hell, my 64 yr old mother owns a 'sock monkey' set. the hood flips over and makes a 'face', and she can remove the footed bottoms if she so desires. though, my mom's pretty bad ass.

i'm surprised about the DC comments, as Marvel is typically noted as being the "weirder" brand of comic publications. as in, the characters are more twisted, whereas DC's are fairly straight forward. these are a little obnoxious, sure. as a lady, they make me wince a little. but, i also think it's super creepy to print anything about dating/marriage/MILF on baby clothing. but had they been at spencer's instead of target i don't think anyone would have batted an eyelash.

...how does the return label get turned into 'profit'?

it's not uncommon for something like that to happen. postpartum is a very real and scary thing for women. my friend's sister delivered WAY too early (approx. 5mo) and they went through the whole delivery process as well as the burial. my friend's coworker miscarried at 3.5/4mo, and still routinely visits the site, even when she got pregnant again very quickly and has since delivered a 100% healthy baby. people grieve differently, for sure. or, she might have just been his crazy sister.

a 5 yr old?! she could have handed her ANYTHING to just carry it around, and she would have been occupied. like, spend 10min and pick out some book for her (that you will then purchase) and hand the book to the tot while you browse. or get them one of those 'lap desks' (beanbag filled underside with a solid top), throw a box of crayons and a notebook in your purse, and the kid would have been plenty happy sitting down nearby and just coloring for a minute or two. and hell, new cell phones all have a 'kid mode' where she could just lock down her phone and hand it to the child to tinker with while she browsed. that lady shouldn't reproduce.

my sister has two little ones, both still in diapers, and she always has a changing pad in her diaper bag or car when she leaves the house with either of them. that's specifically what those changing pads are for...to create a reasonable barrier between the floor and the baby. WORST EVER- i was on a flight where some asshat parent changed their baby IN THE AISLE OF THE PLANE. so so so not okay.

i wonder if netflix uses a weird association algorithm that pulls from the reviews/comments on movies.

child trafficking and identity theft/fraud might count? (the conditions at the orphanage were terrible, and that carol burnett and tim curry tried to pose as annie's parents to get that cash reward.)

i usually do a round-up plus a buck or two for carry-out orders...unless they're really lagging behind (hadn't even put the order in when i show up) or are remarkably rude when i arrive. also a bonus dollar if they had to do any extra silliness, like splitting an order, substituting sides, or allergy/diet-related restrictions.

it's not illegal, but it's creating a hostile environment that includes having large sums of cash around.

walgreens used to do it that way too, but only for meds containing pseudoephedrine. if they've seen you before, they likely thought "i don't need to stare them down like a hawk". but now, they simply ask to swipe your id to log the info.

actually...when i worked at the buckle (about 10 years ago, now) it was policy that you could only compare signatures. the CREDIT CARD COMPANIES would forward any complaints about checking ID's, when enough customer complaints would file in. so, lets say 20 suburban moms across the US complain to visa about buckle associates checking ID's. corporate would get pinged by Visa, and then the slaves would get yelled at. but, should the customer file a claim against a possibly-fraudulent purchase, the store eats the cost of the stolen goods.
