getting a refund due to the incompetence of a cashier shouldn't be this difficult or take this long..
"20% off" doesn't mean you ADD 20% TO THE PRICE, YOU IDIOT!! - Big Joe Silence

Picking raisins out of tropical dried fruit mix. They try to trick me & pretend they're dates.
Raisins are the most unnecessary filler in the world. - Anika

I like raisins. In fact, oatmeal raisin cookies are my favorite kind of cookie in the world. I'm in the minority. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
If you offer me a warm oatmeal raisin cookie I will gladly eat it and enjoy it. Other than that, I'd rather not cross paths with the things :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I would pick the raisins out of that cookie :) - ellbeecee
Y'all just send me your raisins, k? - Kirsten
I like raisins, but I don't like them in that mix either :/ - Jennifer Dittrich
I can pick the raisins out of anything, cookies, salads, trail mix. I'm a raisin eliminatin' ninja - Steve C Team Marina
Hurray for softish oatmeal raisin cookies, but as part of dried fruit mix, not so much. Also dunno what's tropical about grapes... - Walt Crawford

I like raisins but I wouldn't think they'd belong in the tropical dried fruit category. - bentley
THEY SURE DON'T. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'll take raisins in three formats: in my gorp, in my panettone, or in my Raisin Bran. Beyond that...NOPE. And rehydrated raisins? Who invented that little corner of hell? - Hookuh Tinypants
Raisinets. Had a handmade chocolate once with sultanas and an espresso bean. Those raisins are good raisins. Because chocolate. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

the central library in my city is closing permanently on the 23rd. oldest is pretty upset about this and i am none too pleased myself. she made me promise to bring her back this week with a camera and take more photos and let her say goodbye.
Oh geez, that's awful! Can you get library cards for another city or will Arlington just not have a library? - Jessie
we have loads of branches. supposedly they will build and open a new central library by 2017, but it's a bit like W saying we're going to the moon and then gutting NASA. the old library site will be a new commercial real estate development and will likely stand empty like the rest of our dead downtown area. - Big Joe Silence

Ah, that sucks. Poor kiddo. Hopefully she'll love one of the branch libraries just as much. - Kirsten

This Greenpeace Stunt May Have Irreparably Damaged Peru's Nazca Site -
This Greenpeace Stunt May Have Irreparably Damaged Peru's Nazca Site
Show all
"The Peruvian government is planning to file criminal charges against Greenpeace activists who may have permanently scarred the Nazca Lines World Heritage Site during a publicity stunt. As The Guardian reports, the Nazca lines "are huge figures depicting living creatures, stylized plants and imaginary figures scratched on the surface of the ground between 1,500 and 2,000 years ago." The figures, which can only be seen from the air, are believed to have had ritual functions related to astronomy. The ground around the site is so sensitive and so sacred that Peru has even forbidden presidents and top officials to walk where the Greenpeace activists went. Peru's Deputy Culture Minister told the BBC: "You walk there, and the footprint is going to last hundreds or thousands of years." Tourists generally get to see the site from the air, or, on rare occasions, are equipped with special foot gear." - Big Joe Silence from Bookmarklet
"Several Greenpeace activists entered into the prohibited area beside the figure of a hummingbird where they laid big yellow cloth letters reading: "Time for Change! The Future is Renewable." They were also sure to leave a signature. The message was intended for delegates from 190 countries at the UN climate talks being held in Lima. Peru is planning to file criminal charges against the activists before they leave the country." - Big Joe Silence
They weren't. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!

so ... trying to empty out my Mom's condo. My SIL is helping a bunch. She's also chosen a few small pieces of furniture that I was actually hoping to keep. Tomorrow is my day to work on this with my brother (her husband). Do I mention that I was eyeing those pieces also? Or do I just let it go?
I always feel like they did so much to help my mom that I kind of owe them whatever they want. I just felt miffed about the way she snagged them. Felt like I tried to mention that I was also interested and it went wooosh over her head. - Laura Norvig
Tough one. I'd say something to my brother just to know I did so and not have the risk of a lingering resentment. Then if it's something you can work out amenably all the better, but if not let it go. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
it's really not that big a deal, she's just a bit of a tough one to deal with sometimes. I'll probably be better off picking new furniture at home - not like these are sentimental pieces, they were just nice, useful, end/side/bedside table thingies. - Laura Norvig
You want I should talk to her? *cracks knuckles* - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
feeling good today - my brother KICKED ASS helping to empty the place. Tomorrow I'm pondering the books. Several thousand books. - Laura Norvig
luckily books are really easy to pack. If you don't stop to open them all and get lost in reading them! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Did you make a decision about the furniture? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
My mom metnioned that when she and her brothers wanted something and more than one person wanted an item, names went into a hat. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Even if it's not a sentimental piece, it may become one in time if it brings back memories. It wouldn't hurt to mention that you'd like to have something. - Anne Bouey
No, I am letting them go because although one of them is pretty nice, I want to be more deliberate about furnishing the new place. I'm taking two unfinished pine pieces, a dresser and a small cabinet, that will be useful. Taking enough sentimental art, china, knicknacks. Rudi, I can't bear to take the books. Feels like it should be all or nothing. I don't know. Will try to pick a box full tomorrow. Writing some blogs posts about it. - Laura Norvig

UGH. Flight booked. Two weeks away, and I am already dreading the holiday airport experience. I'm not keen on the airport/long flight adventures to begin with, but adding some of that Holidays sauce on top of it? Help me, Rhonda. :|
I hate holiday airport travel too. I hope it goes smoothly and amusingly. :-) - vicster: hon. canadian
thanks, vicster. I forgot to add that I've turned into a bit of a weirdo-germaphobe freak in my old age. So, I'm certainly not helping the cause. #cootiesonthepane! ;) - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Haha that's me everywhere I go. Because people are nasty! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Gloves are wonderful things for a germaphobe. No wish you a stress free travel. - Janet from FFHound!
TY, Janet! :) - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Hope it all goes well for you! - Anne Bouey
So tired of repairs. I swear if it's not the house, it's one of the cars. The repairs are going to cost almost as much as the car is worth. Wish I could just buy a new car but it's not in the cards anytime soon :(

violation of the CAN-SPAM act. - Laura Norvig
worse, though? using the cc field for mass emails. unbelievably, I just got an email from my new mortgage servicer, that had a bunch of patrons emails in the cc field! Which I never would have noticed but somebody called them out on it by using reply-all and demanding that they now pay for identity theft protection for us. - Laura Norvig

Do NOT even try to tell me you didn't receive any emails from us since we track them and I can see that not only did you click the email, you opened it as well. I'm not going to call you a liar since you're a customer but you are quite wrong. And if you're going to contact us from different emails, BE ABLE TO ACCESS BOTH WHEN YOU COMPLAIN!
*calming breaths* Leave the reply for later. Although I don't like how you responded by typing in all caps. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I need a ruling from the hive mind. I work with a person who complains constantly, busts everyone's balls due to personal vendettas and is generally a negative and depressing force. I need a word in my brain so when it goes "GAH, SHUT UP ______" but I don't want to use "bitch" because this person happens to be female.
What's your best non-misogynist word I can use? - Johnny
............sorry. Cunt is the only other alternative for me, and I apply it liberally to all forms of gender identity and gender expression when needed. So. I'm not very helpful. But I love you, bro. - Hookuh Tinypants
Biznatch? Nevermind. - Rodfather
It's just in your brain? Hmm. Not sure I would worry about this too much, but I appreciate your sensitivity. In similar situations, I often replay the scene where Violet Beauregard yells "Can it, you nit!" to Veruca Salt. - Corinne L
Shut up you giant asshat? fucking tool? douchebag? (Love Corinne's suggestion.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Oh geeze. So, she's not just a 'Debbie Downer'? She's angry too? - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Corinne, if I set it in my brain now, when I explode in a rage rant in the future, it won't come off as misogynistic and dilute the fact she is just all the things listed above :) - Johnny
Good looking out, Johnny. My other go-to is YOU DUMB WHORE, but I mainly use that when I'm driving, and like Tinypants, I apply the term liberally. - Corinne L

They were lucky indeed. It was a girlfriend of my neighbor's grandson. I went off on her, scared her I think and then Unique ran up apologizing profusely I went off on him too because he knows better and asked him to apologize to the girl for me, for cussing at her. Then I cancelled the call. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Yes that's really his name. His first name is Mister. His middle name is Sir Unique. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

I fucking HATE thieves. My younger brother in Kentucky, one of the best people I know, had his 2000 Jeep Cherokee stolen. He went out to his Jeep before work and it was gone. He locks it religiously. He bought the Jeep off Mom & Dad and he's babied it, worked on it, painted it. I hope the thief gets his testicles chewed off by a large dog.
I am not even kidding. - Jed from iPhone
Man, that sucks. Yes, thieves are fucking shitty. Sorry this happened to your brother. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
I can understand how you feel. My previous car was stolen three times (once as a joyride, and twice stripped). - imabonehead
Thanks, guys. Brother just texted. Police found Jeep on a tip. He sent me pic. Busted steering column and the Jeep is dirty as fuck. Glad they found it, but I hope the police finds whoever did this. Barring that, again, I hope the thief gets his testicles bitten off. - Jed
