    So... have you sat down with your boss and asked him for suggestions to help you improve your job performance?

    I'm not sure what to think of your initial post. You write: How many jobs have...

    Apparently, I'm difficult to annoy? I can't relate to your examples. Neither the toilet seat or a window arm smudge would even ping my radar.

    Now kids... If I had a dollar for every time I...

    Even that isn't necessary with a basic, well-made design that can be easily tailored. Men's business wear is often designed with adjustment in mind. Women's clothing isn't.

    Case in point, DH is...

    This is exactly my impression, particularly given the use of "dressage tricks". What means trick? Jigging sideways is a far cry from asking for and getting a proper half-pass... if you follow my...

    I've always preferred a tailored look. It's almost part of a uniform for engineers, but it is so difficult to find well-made, fitted button downs and pants. I'm not into sheers. I don't mind...

    I've exclusively breastfed my DS, but I'm going to honest. It hasn't been any type of easy, fun, or magical experience. I completely understand why some women get discouraged and give up. I've...

    Pappadeaux serves a fried alligator appetizer that is amazing. But my favorite Cajun fare is boudin. DH is all about crawfish, but that's just too much work.

    People need to stay in their own lane. What difference does it make to them if your BFF doesn't breastfeed? It's her kid, her choice.

    It is more "mean", IMO, to be inconsistent. If three days per week, you're content with mediocre, but two days per week you're driven for perfection, what is the horse supposed to conclude about...

    Well.... There is always more than one approach to solve any problem. Personality of the rider/trainer does play a part in selection of the method, but I wouldn't necessarily say it dictates the...

    Leprechaun? What?

    The Elf on the Shelf creeps me out. Entirely too Chucky-esque. I'm actually surprised no one has turned it into a horror film yet.

    If you want another horse, then there's no harm in contacting the mare's owner to discuss her.

    However...

    It doesn't sound like you want another horse.

    Just because there's a free horse...

    Licking and chewing does coincide with thinking. Lip flapping, teeth grinding, and apparent "tics" coincide with anxiety and can be indicative of ulcers, particularly if they occur during work.

    Not that it matters, but I'm curious to know what the lie gains... or what these folks sought to gain. Are they not competitive in their own breed, so they masquerade as another (smaller playing...

    Our particular trip made headlines for days as the fogged-in cruise out of Galveston. There were no hotels available on the island due to some large conference, so...

    I took piano lessons as a little kid and not my choice. My mother played and was determined it was a skill I should have. She gave up fighting me over it when I got myself effectively "fired" by...

    It probably runs in her family. I normally chaff at the whole "it takes a village" thing, but sometimes, it really does take a village (complete with blunt co-workers!).
