people who ask you to end your ebay auction early and sell right away, and they will insta-pay, and then dont pay. assholes.

I made something for a guy two years ago, and part of it recently broke. I offered to send a replacement part at absolutely no cost, which he accepted. Now, he buys something else (we're talking $24 here) and asks for a discount because the other one broke. I'm thinking of offering him the choice of a discount or the free replacement part.

Since you already offered to ship a replacement part for free I'd offer him a choice between "no" and "fuck no."

I think that it is clear that the English, the Italians and the French have been making shoes, at least the shoes coveted and purchased by SF members, for much longer than Asians. But isn't there some other way to espouse the quality of something, without appearing to, albeit subtly, putting down something else?

I'm generally not so bothered about PC-ness but, regarding the above, am not sure.

And what about the excellent Japanese shoemakers out there?

What do y'all fellas think?

our company just bought out our competitor's assets since they closed down end of last year. now it looks like I'm gonna spend days commuting between their danky dirty grimy workplace and my nice comfortable room to oversee the removal and transfer of their machines for the next week or so.

I just caught myself singing the acapella backing vocals to Billy Joel's "The Longest Time." Even the "ooh-ah-ooh-ah" part. Just awful.

Just a it's time to leave for the office I need a massive shit. Two options:

1) use the bathroom here and have an enjoyable commute, but be late for work.

2) out in a plug until I reach the office and then start the day with some relaxation.

I think the way you would answer that question tells you a lot about your job.

The world is wrong. Roma is right. This proper response to "thank you" is now so rare that I have actually thanked people for saying "you're welcome".  Sadly that tends to elicit a "oh, no problem".

The discount thingy is just non-sense..
