I’m in the US and haven’t spent much time working in food service, but I spent many years working retail. Every place I worked at very strongly instructed me that I was not to try to argue with thieves or think my way into something clever, but should instead just give them any money or goods they asked for without… » 4/25/15 4:40pm Yesterday 4:40pm

I can and do wear very similar dresses with black tights to work. I have a professional position, but the company explicitly has a casual dress code, which means that all of the men wear jeans and varying sorts of shirts (we occasionally have to send around a memo about not wearing beer-themed ones to work) while the… » 4/25/15 4:23pm Yesterday 4:23pm

My understanding is that there’s a rift in the family with Rob, but that it doesn’t really have much to do with Bruce. I’ve heard he’s been dealing with depression, and there have been reports that Kim was a huge asshole to him about his weight at her wedding. I think this may just be a case of unrelated family… » 4/25/15 3:57pm Yesterday 3:57pm

Like others have said, the park has a special rule that lets visitors take home their finds. That’s actually the main tourism appeal of some of these sites. My parents used to pan for sapphires in a similar one elsewhere in the country. My dad got the nicest of the bunch when he was by himself and had it made into a… » 4/25/15 2:58pm Yesterday 2:58pm

The fact that his children and former partners are supportive of him seems like an important and positive part of his story, especially given that the stereotype is that trans people are rejected by their loved ones. The public can’t see that they’re supportive if they keep it entirely private, and given that these… » 4/25/15 1:05pm Yesterday 1:05pm

I’m so confused. Why would someone choose this rather than that site for sugar daddies and babies? I mean, fine, I get that there’s an active market for sex work that isn’t labeled as sex work. But it seems a lot less scary on both sides to exchange money for sex and companionship when you have the option of meeting… » 4/24/15 4:23pm Friday 4:23pm

You know, I can understand the criticisms of the beachline and the water. No, that’s not really something that’s within whoever might be operating the boardwalk to change, but it might affect a person’s decision whether it was worth it to travel to that beach and perhaps pay to access it. The product here is access to… » 4/24/15 2:50pm Friday 2:50pm

They’re shielding the identity of the child for his privacy, but you know, its not out of the question that this child does have developmental disabilities. Lots of kids do. It’s also possible he was acting on a dare, was bullied into doing it, or all kinds of other things. I don’t really see the point in scrutinizing… » 4/23/15 12:05am Thursday 12:05am

It also seems like it’s a lot more off brand for the Olsens than for Stamos. He’s still a working actor who can be seen doing yogurt commercials, but I think it’s pretty clear that neither of the twins has any interest in that sort of thing. They have their own money and it seems like as much fame as they’d like. » 4/22/15 8:42pm Wednesday 8:42pm

On the other side of the spectrum, Russell also managed to make the relatively relaxed-seeming George Clooney so mad (also over the way he was treating other actors on set) that Clooney punched him. It seems like he has a talent for pissing off people at all points on the chill spectrum. » 4/20/15 9:22pm Monday 9:22pm

This is a church, not a funeral home, but the priest at my grandmother’s funeral chose to give a sermon on the topic of the evils of abortion. She’d been a member of the parish for decades and had a number of family members planning the funeral, and with even a little effort, he should have been able to find something… » 4/17/15 2:06pm 4/17/15 2:06pm
