Feb 7th 2008 1:02PM There are worse things than having to give up an armrest. Try sitting in the middle where you have to have your arms in front of you because the people on either side want to use the armrests and one of these has an infant they want to pass back and forth between seats and the other wants his laptop and drink with room for his briefcase between his and your legs. Try that for comfort. I request aisle seats because of both my weight and a bad knee and God forbid you have to go potty.
Feb 7th 2008 12:43PM I see myself everyday in the mirror and cry about my weight. I have been on more diets than I can count. I gained weight on Slimfast. Yes, I would definitely love to travel to a place that would have me without all the comments about my weight and at the same time accepting my money for hotel and food and entertainment. The only places that don't comment are the casinos 'cause thay know what side their bread is buttered on. Those so-called beautiful people are usually cheap. They don't spend or TIP like some of us fat people do. They're too busy looking for that rich guy or girl that's going to pay their skinny ways. Sometimes I think these companies make turnstiles, chairs, etc. smaller so they can aggravate us. Anyway, I always patronize the place that takes care of fat me.
Jun 7th 2007 3:34PM Damn if you do and damn if you don't. So, if yiu try to stop a thief you get fired and if you don't you get fired. That's why the prices go up, isn't it. We see those signs all the time about shoplifting. Well, maybe they should look for stores with Home Depot's policy, they could get away with a houseful of goods and more. No one's going to stop them now....let the execs take care of the thief....why should you endanger yourselves. Home Depot will be going out of business soon anyway with their policy when all the thieves get wind of it and bad news travels fast. The Gypsies especially will be there. Hope they rethink their policy, hire the employees back and give them a reward before it's too late.
Apr 10th 2007 5:35AM Brain farts....that's what they're called. We all occasionally have them. It's just that some farts turn into poop. Even dogs know better to not poop where they eat. I think Imus should also have to pay a hefty fine, maybe to the school where the girls are from. Maybe that's what should happen to others who do the same thing. Hey, how about the black comedians, etc. who makes cracks about whites and get away with it.....oh yeh, i forgot, that's supposed to be funny....ha ha....we have to take it
and like it.
Apr 4th 2007 12:43AM Supersmart little girl...watch out world! We have some smart little ones here too but they don't always get put on camera. The next generation is going to have to be smart so Mothers stop talking babytalk to your babies if you want them to be brainiacs.
Sep 25th 2006 8:56AM I found that after my third baby, putting the child on the potty about thirty minutes after they eat and giving them a book to read usually worked. And it works with my grandchildren, too. All eight of them.
Sep 25th 2006 8:50AM We've travelled all over with up to five kids and even took a nephew with us sometimes. And we've always had a great time. Even the time when our son claimed we "forced" him to go to Disneyworld and Adventureland when all he wanted to do was stay home with his other 13 yr old friends. Babies are easier than teenagers, believe me. But, I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.
Sep 25th 2006 8:36AM I had a friend in school that was paralysed on one side of her face due to an ear infection her parents couldn't afford to get treated.
Sep 25th 2006 8:34AM I used to get earaches when I was a child and my Mother used to blow cigarette smoke into my ear till the ear stopped hurting. I stopped getting earaches when I was about eight. I don't know if it was her warm breath that did it or the nicotine in the smoke that did it. But it helped. We couldn't afford running to the doctor's then. My kids went to the doctor, I don't smoke.
Sep 25th 2006 8:17AM A gun is a gun. Toy or real. When our kids used to play cowboys, we told them never to point the gun at anyone or anything unless they were going to shoot it. They never took these toys to school. They were never allowed to take any toys to school unless we got a note from the teacher saying it was "bring your favorite toy to school" day. Two of my sons were in the Marine Corps and learned more about guns. One is a law officer now. Please sit down with this young man and explain to him about guns. Don't penalize him for his parents' ignorance. Ten days suspension isn't going to teach him about guns, it's going to teach him hate, disrespect and vengeance. I dare you to teach him respect for guns and show others the same in school. Guns are used to hunt for food and protection in time of war. Put that Psychology Class you had in college to work now! I DARE YOU!
