    Stay strong!
    Look for aisles labeled "family friendly". No candy, and no Cosmo. If you have a weakness for earbuds, iTunes cards or hair elastics you're out of luck, though.

        So that's what that sign means.

        GotD: My office has been having construction done, and today they're painting and staining. It freaking reeks in here! At least it's an extra incentive (and an excuse if the boss asks) to go walk around outside.

            To be fair, I have never gone into best buy and said, "Huh, I would really like a box of candy to go along with this new router." I am sure they looked at some kind of market research that said, "Sell candy. They will buy it." So it is a two way street of blame - them for sticking it there in teh first place and people in general for buying the crap.

                  Agreed. I am not arguing that, but sometimes supply creates the demand. At least that has been my experience. Not that there is anything wrong with that but if one is assigning arbitrary blame some goes to the supplier.

                      • I accidentally spilled a mixture of butter, olive oil and steak juice on my sheets when I tore through a particularly difficult chunk of meat.
                        My head went up (with a mouthful of steak), my hands went down and my plate went splash.
                        In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                            I once shoved someone into oncoming traffic for that.

                                One of the best by-laws passed here in the last 5 years has been to ban smoking within 3 m (about 10 feet) of any public doorway (including restaurants). It's cut down a lot on people "just stepping out for a smoke" into an area where there's a lot of foot traffic.
