    GoTD: White Out. Came a butt hair away from dumping an entire bottle of the stuff on a practically brand new outfit. If that really would have happened, I would have just clocked out and gone home for the day.

    It doesn't

    I also hate the "it's just a joke" defence of eejits everywhere.

If the guy was more useful than a piece of driftwood, I could overlook his 1970's attitude to women & his Captain Obvious style of conversation. However, he IS useless and until today, I had no idea that "dry British humor" meant "offensive stupid idiot with a pompous accent".
    No, that's "redneck West Texas" humor. i'm sorry that any of ours have made it that far east. We usually try and keep them contained. Contained as in, encased in concrete.

    People who ask you to do a lengthy and complicated task, then drag their feet on getting their part done so you can get started.

    When you flounce out of the house to the DMV thinking you're one Hot Thing and this year's photo is gonna be good.....and then you look at your new license and say "who IS this mad old woman with bags under her eyes???"

    When you finally make up your mind to leave your job to follow your dreams, and then you get the promotion that you've been promised for three years, with a good increase in pay. (yay?)

    Now I'm confused.

THEY WILL NOT FIX A BAD DIET. when people go on them simply out of curiosity, whatever i don't really care. waste your own time. but when someone i love goes on one (after another, after another) to try to help a true medical condition when a change of diet would make a HUGE impact...oh it's just frustrating.
