“I am sure Ms. Adams has never been told not to return to a business establishment because they don't serve "breeders" there (I used that term because the restaurant was just as rude with their wording to the guy couple).”
“I am a woman and I find this article to be totally biased and rather sexist. It goes both ways and my son's father's family recently had a shakeup when a female member cheated on her husband and ended up pregnant while he was deployed. I was also tempted to cheat on my husband when he became unavailable in every way and took that as my cue to divorce him.
Also, looking at porn is in no way comparable to chatting online with another woman, let alone having sex with another woman.”

“For many, it is comparable. You are lumping all people in the same group.”

“If you had a spouse who preferred porn to sex with you, you would consider looking at porn as a form of cheating. It can be as insidious and destructive to a marriage as chatting, cheating or sexual activity that doesn't involve your spouse.”
“Due to this job market there have been more and more educated people having to work jobs like this to keep ends meet.”

“Kim a job market that for every 3 coding jobs available only one will get filled? A market where companies are begging for many different types of trade workers? It's not an issue of a lack of jobs. It's an issue of people who are not educated for our jobs market.”

“In those cases those people should be looking at moving to areas where the job market has more demand for their particular skill set.”

“So why is that now McD's issue? Their corp structure has nothing to do with the current job market. They have a need ot answer to me and othe rinvestors. Supply and demand also dictates their pay structure, so if you have zero marketable skills how do you demand anything?”

“Not really. The overwhelming majority of adults working at McDonald's thought school was for chumps. McDonald's managers don't like hiring overly educated people because they are far more difficult to control than high schoolers and the chronically undereducated.”
“I was also adopted by alcoholics that both drank themselves to death by the time I was 27. The thing is, alcoholic and otherwise bad parents happen to biological kids too and not every adopted kid has it as bad as we did.”

“This one came up twice. I'm a wolf raised by sheep. I knew no one in the world like me until I saw my first episode of STAR TREK TOS and saw the character of Spock. Until then I was completely lost in the world. When you're in your family of origin there are usually people with traits like yours. I was truly a Stranger in a Strange Land. I was always telling my adopted mother about my feelings. She ignored my cries for help.
I think I have Asperger's Syndrome. I asked for help again and again and it never arrived. Parents are supposed to provide for their kids. (I am working on this issue, BTW.)
Then I was doubly legally blind but I didn't get glasses until I was nine years old. The optometrist berated my father at length for this. Doc Gilbert couldn't believe that I'd walked to school for years without being run over. I'd told them repeatedly that I couldn't see anything. My needs were NOT met in any way, medically, physically or emotionally. There are too many to share here.
Some people weren't meant to be parents. My adopted mother was one of them. She was clueless.
Still, thanks for reminding me that there are good adoptions. Sometimes I do forget that...but remember, for every infant it's a roll of the dice. A birth mother is trusting her progeny to unknown people forever. I would never do that.
“This can backfire. My son's paternal grandmother had black hair in her "younger" days and colors it now. Honestly, it looks too black, if that makes sense, and is unnatural-looking. If anything it ages her more. My mom started going grey in her early thirties and my maternal grandmother was completely white by her sixties and neither of them colored their hair and both looked wonderful. I hope I can embrace it the way they did.”
“My two did something similar except they crept a lot closer to the ground (their heads were up but their bodies were low) and approached him very slowly and never got that close. My son is two now and they still try to avoid him but will tolerate him petting them.”
“He needs to lose his license and be charged with animal cruelty and some kind of theft because he did not render a service that the pet owners paid for. The sad thing is that the theft will probably have a stiffer penalty than cruelty.”
“I wore a halter-style ball gown by Jessica McClintock for my senior prom in 2001. The bodice was black velvet and had some corset-style boning and the skirt was forest green taffeta with black velvet flocking in a lace-like design near the hem. I loved her dresses back then and I was so thrilled to wear that one. :)”
“My "crowd" has discussed this too (geriatric practitioners in different disciplines) and I don't buy it either. It's more a case of "I'm old so I can say whatever I want." Maybe he thinks he has little left to lose after being exiled so he can just spout off whatever he wants.”

“He's been saying and doing whatever he wanted all his night. One does not become suddenly racist.”

“No, it's "I'm richer than Croesus and I can say and do whatever I want."”
“I agree. I was interracially adopted by white parents and raised in predominantly white medium-sized towns, one in California and one in Texas. My parents downplayed or outright invalidated me when something "racial" came up and some of it was very blatant. My son is tri-racial (Japanese from his father and Samoan/white from me) and I sometimes worry about what things will be like for him when he gets older. Some of his paternal relatives are already making remarks and he's just a toddler.”
“Maybe this can be used to make foundations that match skin tones better?”

“You can go to Sephora and have it done now. They use a Pantone tone camera and they take samples from your face and neck, let the scanner do it's algorithm, and it give you the results as well as the name brands and color that match your skin tone. It worked great for me, and I just have tried 3 of the 5 that were the top of the results.”
tessaz32 on May 9, 2014 at 17:14:23
“that would be awesome.. take a picture of your own face and then get a perfect match for your skin tone!”
“I moved from California to Texas. We finally have In-N-Out and the water in the Gulf is actually a lot warmer than the Pacific. The rest of this, though, I can totally relate to. If it weren't for the astronomical cost of living there, I would have gone back.”
“It was the hardest thing I have ever done, but when my cat of over 13 years had to be euthanized, I was there with him on my lap. I was also with my son's father's Boston terrier when she had to be euthanized.
When they are with you through thick and thin like that, it is good to be there for them. It is terribly hard and heartbreaking though so it is understandable if someone can't do it.
This vet needs to lose his license.”
SandraGermaine on Apr 30, 2014 at 19:23:41
“He needs to go to jail too. Losing his license is a given. Ugh, I'm so disgusted by this story... I can't imagine going through the pain of having to put your beloved pet down, the grieving process, and the healing process only to find out later that this happened. I would probably have beat that man to death.”

“When I put down my dearest Basset Roxie, I couldn't be in the room when they put her down. I stayed with her for a while and cried but I couldn't be in the room when she passed. It would have been unbearable. The 2 times I had to do that to my babies, I couldn't be in the room when it happened.”
“During my marriage to a Chinese man and another long-term relationship with a fourth-generation American of Japanese descent, I noticed that the only people asking what kind of Asian they were happened to be Asian themselves. Same goes with people asking me about my son's ethnicity because he has his father's Asian eyes. Every time I have been asked about what kind of Asian my son is, it has been from another Asian.
I always get the sense that there is a right or wrong answer to that question, too, depending on who is asking it.”
“That is not federal. It is state. If it is a one-party state, only one person in the conversation must give consent to the recording. Since she was a member of the conversation and recorded it herself, she gave the neccessary consent.”
