Yes, because it's now independents' job to vote against their conscience and rescue the system from the calamity the Democrats were active participants in creating.Just vote for them this time, and next time will totally be the one where they decide to deign to let people outside the "mainstream" colluders' parties have a voice.
Weird. A family with a special needs kid just moved out of my cul-de-sac this week.
Oh yeah. Been there. I've also gotten rejection letters weeks after the hiring manager contacted me to let me know I didn't get the job. HR is bad on its own, but government + HR = next-level ridiculous.One day, when I have time, I'll start a thread like FLMM's "Pat" thread and talk about the ridiculous stuff I've seen, often from HR. My favorite one that doesn't require much background is the story a boss once told me about how HR wouldn't let him fire someone who'd faked...
I have to take my ring off every day. If I don't, the skin under it gets really irritated. That said, my ring is totally a social norm thing for me. I wear it because that's what you're supposed to do; it doesn't have a lot of value to me other than the fact that it's how our society signals marriage.

Personally, if I can't find a way to rationalize tapping the C just to avoid the D, I'm probably (somewhat reluctantly) taking the Johnson.
The leaky dishwasher is a good example. It's also harder to clean up, which is a problem given the nature of what goes on in the kitchen, and it's exacerbated by the fact that I'm kind of a messy cook and have small children who are prone to spills. I feel like I spend a lot more time cleaning every time there's a spill than I would with another flooring type because I have to do stuff like clean in the grooves.Also, I worry a lot about durability.
