    That's so annoying. I once saw a woman at one of the 5th Ave. Sephora stores putting her cosmetics into a Bergdorf bag. Get a life lady.

    We do that all the time when we're out shopping. Don't waste another bag on me--just put all that in this other bag where it will also fit. One bag is preferrable to two.

    In Milan I saw an old man carrying a very worn Hermes shopping bag, so worn, in fact, that he had used duct tape to repair the sides where it had worn through.
    On eBay, you can even sell excellent examples of designer shopping bags. It's slightly ironic given that these bags are actually made in China.

    I once saw a girl using a well-worn Emporio Armani shopping bag.

    Yesterday I used a very beat up YY shopping bag and was seen in public with it, but i have an excuse as i needed to take a pair of boots and another pair of shoes to the cobbler for repair and that was the only disposable bag that was convenient enough to carry both.

    People who think public spitting is ok.

    Yesterday I was on a break from class and gave another student a dirty look when he did this and he gave me a dirty look back. He should have turned red faced.

    At least you have Tango classes in your area; the closets' Tango class I could find is in Miami, which is far too far away. I could take a crash course in Bs As, but its not the same.

    Jon.

    Miami beats Buenos Aires for tango classes?
    Yeah, I guess I don't see the disadvantage of learning tango in BA.

    b


    i think jon was referring to the fact that the buenos aires class would have to be a crash course, since he doesn't live there.

    why the main stream hip hop is so full of bull shit gangster rap and why groups like ATCQ, de la, organized konfusion are not richer, more famous, more powerful than mediocre kids like $.50

    +1 just blows my mind

    People who sort their Outlook inbox by name and not by time received.
    About 3-4 people I know do that and would save their time replying to an email chain/group if they saw the order of it.

    1. Why this ^ bothers SoCal enough that he posted it in two threads.

    2. Why it affects me enough that I would mention it

    I dont understand adults who go to the zoo and stand in front of the animals for long periods, blocking off kids.


    I don't understand people who take pictures of the animals in the zoo - I can understand taking a picture of yourself or your friends/family in the zoo, but some proffetional has taken pictures of that animal before, pictures much better than the ones you will take, and they are available on the web for free. so why? I just don't understand. and while you are taking pictures of the animals, some 3 year old is standing behind you, trying to see the fucking mercat. move!!

    The use of sunglasses indoors.

    i think i once came across a facebook group titled, 'the sun never sets on being badass.' I totally agree with that statement, so in that respect i have no problem with people wearing sunglasses at night, indoors, or the two combined.

    Meh, he's still stuck in figurative art. When he gets to abstract, let me know.
