    My favorite is when I get emails that say "Let me know if you did not receive this." This has happened more times than I can count! How the heck am I supposed to know if I didn't get the email?

    Being a patient in a hospital bed with visitors and having the nurse come in and ask if you had a bowel movement today can be quite stressful and embarrassing. Are they not taught about tact? lol refer's to Scott and Ally's expertise...what say you?

    ...I say, if the nurse can't tell by the reek, that you've "gone poopy"...then they need to find another vocation...

    I love my local butchers, it's always busy. It always makes me chuckle when customers ask our jolly butcher (resplendent in red cheeks, jaunty striped hat and riddled with gout) "ooh, I'll have some of that Sirloin, is it good?".. I'm LONGING for him to say "nope, tastes like sh1te, but I'm selling it anyway!!"...

    It's called 'retail face' and you are afflicted with it! It happens to me all the time. I've worked retail all my life and every once in a while I'll be in a store somewhere (not where I work) and someone will approach me and ask 'Do you work here.' hate it!

    I dated in a guy in college who kept telling me I could be a model if I would just lose weight. He was a triathlete, very into health and exercise, and I was a reader who liked to eat Snickers. I was that way before I met him, after I met him, and am still that way. But still, he kept trying to change who I was. So we broke up. Five years later he looked me up again. Can you guess what he asked me?? Can you believe a person would call up another person and ask them if they were still "overweight?" Had I said, "Why no, as a matter of fact I lost 25 pounds," do you think my next statement would have been "Sure, come on over!!" What I wanted to ask him was, "Are you still in your twenties and balding and living with your mom?" But I was nice, and kindly let him know that yes I was still chubby and still pretty but no longer interested in dating him.

    You were too nice. You should have asked him if he was revisiting his decision to opt out of charm school.
