  • Do people often walk away from you when you're in a conversation?

    Because, often, people walk away from me when I start talking about the topic, or try to add something to the topic, or try to say my side of a topic. You get the idea. Like for example, today at work, a coworker has a cast on his hand. I ask him what happened and he tells me the story of how he cut his hand and... show more

He even shows a pic of his would on his phone when it happened. I asked him few more questions like does it hurt, how deep was the cut, etc. Then I thought it would be interesting to bring up how I almost lost my finger from a deep cut, years ago. His response was "yeah" and then he just abruptly walked away.

  • Why are people (strangers) so rude in telling me what to do?

    Best answer: Please allow me to disagree: on a public place it is their business. They might not necessarily try to behave like your father but you should not feel that you can do whatever you want in public places. For example you should leave a public place as you found it. On the other hand it is human to drop for example a... show more
    Best answer: Please allow me to disagree: on a public place it is their business. They might not necessarily try to behave like your father but you should not feel that you can do whatever you want in public places. For example you should leave a public place as you found it. On the other hand it is human to drop for example a tissue by mistake but other people should give you a chance to clean behind yourself and otherwise point that out to you with tact and respect. but when you drop trash and have no intention of picking it up and expect other people to be your servants and clean behind you you are wrong then and will never get ahead as long as you do not change!

Was it rude of him to decline? It just means he doesn't have any interest in my children at all.

    I don't want it to be known by anyone that I was the one to have complained. Interestingly, this is a female and I am female as well. I am very uncomfortable around her. She is loud and does not respect personal boundaries. She either is dumb or plays dumb. Everyday, she makes sexual comments to a number of coworkers. She is touchy. She went around asking today who wants to be her boyfriend and then asked if I wanted to be her boyfriend (again I'm female)...she went on to ask if I was jealous. She had something nasty on her finger once and told me she'd pay me to lick it off. She once wanted to "boob bump" me. Something is very off with her. She is friends with people at work. People frequently say she's obnoxious, annoying, etc, but they do overall act like they are friends.... She asked me earlier today if I don't like her. She's asked a number of times when we're going to hang out (while we obviously don't like each other) or why I don't talk to her. She calls me nicknames that she knows I don't like. She plays dumb. I really try to not say much to her. I don't want to talk to her. I don't want to work with her. I would love if a manager could at least sit down with her and tell her to stop behaving this way. I just don't want anyone (managers included) to know that this complaint is coming from me.

    Well my parents have been divorced for 17 years now. & today is my 17th birthday actually. I’ve been ignoring my Dad because about a month or two ago he promised he would come see me for my birthday. Cause I haven’t seen him in a year. But the day before my birthday is him & his wife’s wedding anivarsary. & so last weekend he called me & told me he wasn’t coming to see me because he had to pay child support. So instead of him coming he would be taking his wife to California for there wedding anivarsary. I mean that never made sense to me. When I used to live with my Dad I was always put last. His wife’s kids were put first & my brother (my dads biological son) was list second & his wife was the main in his life. I never really had that father daughter relationship , my dad & I really never spoke. Maybe about how to do something or hi & bye from school & back. But now that I’m here with my mom things are a lot better because I’m closer to my mom waaay more than I am with my dad . But it is what it is 🤷🏽‍♀️

Then she said, "I don't know why you can't just give me the other shirt, it's only $8". I caved and said sorry and gave her the shirt for free. The problem is we're not supposed to do this and I felt like I acted like a pushover. Also, giving her the shirt for free brought her purchase down to $42 from $50 and I forgot to tell her you get a gift card if you spend $50...

  • Would it be offensive if I ate meat in front of a vegetarian on a first date?

    Best answer: well you sure can survive a meatless meal to be in sync with her, and it would be a nice gesture that removes any doubt or awkwardness. if you share mealtimes in the future you can work out what is comfortable for you both along the way.

    Best answer: Not really a polite way-- as a nonreligious person myself I can say that I find it kind of annoying or intruding for someone to ask me that question. I don't ask other people if they go to church or if they are Christian or jewish or anything. Not really anyone's business what I believe, and your acquaintance may feel the same way. His life and his lifestyle includes his viewpoint on religion. Now if you are closer friends then that subject can come up and often be discussed at more depth but to just be nosy as it would come across to someone you barely know-- nope, don't ask.

    Every time I see a mud puddle or a bum pukes on the sidewalk right in front of us I always do the right and gentlemanly thing - I take off my coat and drape it over the offending obstacle- lest her shoes become besmirched with something foul. I've done this so many times now, its costing me hundreds (or is it thousands) of dollars. I would like to ask her to kindly buy me a jacket, since my birthday is coming up but I'm not sure if this is out of line. And she is kind of mean and would probably kick me in the face again with her unbesmirched shoes if she thinks I was crossing some kind of line... So...any advice appreciated. Thanks. I need it. G
