“I am sad to see him go. There should be a way to keep guns out of the criminal's hands. I do feel that responsible people should be allowed the freedom to own guns and should go through training on safety and consequences.
My only conflict with him was his talking against our President Barack Obama, and actually instigating arguments. I've seen him ride two waves of being kind and considerate and also being quite vicious. I did see a clip of him making a little girl cry when he sounded the buzzer on her performance on a talent show, and then he laughed that she was crying. A compassionate person would feel for her sadness.”

“It is a small percentage of America. It is not representational of America, just as the horrible TV shows like Maury Povich and the other one shows a hideous side of a small percentage of Americans. How about our great artists and poets, entrepreneurs and fantastic people?”

“I have been able to break up a fight between a large dog and a smaller dog several times, but when I broke up a cat fight, my finger was in the back jaws of one of my cats, the less aggressive one, and when he chomped down, I got bitten deeply. Still have the scar.
But your solutions are very good. Never thought of the air horn. I recently broke up a fight between my chicken and my little dog, when he had his bone and she came to peck on it.”

“Excellent!!!!! To be honest with you, I have been carefree, keeping my handbag open when I go shopping, I realized that doing so, then has store detectives (regularly clothed) following me around, and I am white. I have been zipping up all pockets of the handbag and it has stopped. But, I will also do as oyeller has suggested, show them my card and money. When one is ethical, it is annoying to not be trusted.”

“And I am a senior citizen, shopping alone, 4 blocks from home. I understand their job and that anyone can be a thief so I like you don't do or make suspicious moves. I speak to everyone have lived and used that store up to this day for the past 15 years.”

“I was recently at a large clothing store in NJ and observed a young beautiful African American and either a sugar daddy or her actual father being stalked in the store by one of the white sales women. I engaged the sales woman in some discussion to change the spirit of the situation. It worked and they were able to shop with less suspicion.”

“This situation is not as unusual as you might think. A few years ago I was shopping at my local target store during the day and was being followed by the store security. I stopped walked up to him showed him my target card, money in my wallet and told him I was not there to steal. He let me alone after that.”

“So, you are saying it didn't smell like fuel? I only looked into the fabric composition because of the toxic diesel fuel odor coming from them. They must have used some wild concoction to spin this yarn. The gray pair smell very powerful of fuel, and the green pair is less, but has the same smell, and two other people smelled the same thing I did.”

“Yesterday, I put on a pair of leggings made by Wet Seal, and they smelled like petroleum. It says it is 73% polyester, 24% cotton, and 3% spandex. I suspect there are recycled plastics in it. I just asked my friend who reluctantly complied with smelling them, and he said they smelled like fuel. I'm going to research this further, because they smell toxic.”

“I don't know anything about Wet Seal or their manufacturing but have found that clothing manufactured outside of the US does have an odor. It's in the dyes they use and washing it has gotten rid of it every time I've done it. Now I've developed the habit of washing everything I buy before I wear it, probably a good habit for all of us to have.”

leavesbound on Oct 13, 2013 at 16:30:26

“Were they packaged in plastic? While there may be legislated standards for the fiber content of garments, there is no such standard in the packaging and I have noticed some plastic packaging has a very noxious odor reminiscent of petroleum. That odor can infuse throughout the garment and would require multiple washings to eliminate.”

“Some years back before the ability to take digital videos, I had ordered a taco from Taco Bell and luckily I was standing so I could see the worker's space. This skinny white guy, (I'm white too) had both of his hands down his pants touching his genitals. He then went with ungloved hands to make the tacos. I asked aloud of the manager whether this person was going to make the tacos I had just ordered and he said yes. I told him that he just had his hands down his pants. He apologized and made them for me. I reported it by phone to Taco Bell. I believe I was sent some coupons.”

“Emotions can appear to be what they are not if a person is doing their best to 'hold it together' when in the face of traumatic situations.

This man reminds me a lot of my (now deceased) father-in-law and I can definitely see the emotion he's containing while trying to related a highly emotional experience.
