You know it's all in good fun. I have a lot of respect for marathoners, like you; I just don't understand why some have to brag and have multiple "13.1" stickers on their cars.

 

Absolutely.  I was cracking up when I typed it.  I also agree with the 'need' for less stickers.

Nice.  I hope you have a "hot key" for this one.   I think it'll be frequently used.

Yeah, a thread on the main board about OJ may be my first recipient.

It's not about him.  It's about our new owners doing a little redecorating.  And whatnot.

I have this one too.  Many people are incredibly rude and inconsiderate when it comes to personal space stuff.

 

 

Have you been following the whole "manspreading" brouhaha... On New York subway.  Look it up if you never heard of it.  What a disturbing trend!

I hate when parents I work with (I'm an educator) tell me how hard it is to work with their children at home because they didn't graduate High School.

"Yeah, your kid is 5 and it's called like THE ALPHABET, dude. Spare me the sob story."

This is what I say to them in my "inner dialogue" haha.

How about this one?:

"Wanna come with?"

Is there really a need to drop the "me"?

public flatulence, especially in elevators.  come on, we all know you did it.  you appear perfectly healthy and totally unfazed.  not funny, not cool and definitely not the way to gain power and influence.

It depends on who else is in the elevator. Under the right circumstances it can be screamingly funny.

Misuse of the words take and bring.  If you're transporting something to another place, you TAKE it with you.  If someone is transporting something to your location, they BRING it to you.

 

Jesus, America, grow up!

Thank God that's been cleared up. Thanks.
