"Suppose a man makes unwanted social advances to a woman in, let’s say, a restaurant or theatre, and she eventually has to tell him loudly or angrily to get lost. She is the one who will be perceived as rude, hostile, aggressive, and obnoxious. His verbal aggression and invasiveness are accepted and expected; her rudeness (or mere curtness) in getting rid of him is noticed and condemned. One of our great myths is that a “real lady” can and should handle any difficulty, defuse any assault, without ever raising her voice or losing her manners. Female rudeness or violence in resistance to male aggression has often been taken to prove that the woman was not a lady in the first place, and therefore deserved no respect from the aggressor or sympathy from others."
A client called me on a national holiday…
Client: I need you to send the ad we’re working on to the newspaper right now so they can run it Tuesday.
Me: I didn’t think we were finished with the ad. Besides, it’s a holiday and I’m not at the office.
Client: What’s wrong with you? You should take your work home in case I need something.
Me: I emailed you the latest draft before I left the office last.
Client: I don’t have access to my email right now, I’m on vacation.

My mothers ex-boyfriend lives in the extra room. Paying rent and whatever. But anyway, he has insurance people come over so he can get unemployment insurance.

Fact 27: I absolutely hate the sound of a dog licking.
Any dog- just that sound.
and they just keep doing it.
the smaller the dog the less noticeable it is- but if i can hear it, it makes me just as annoyed.
Normally i cant hear cats. but when i can then its annoying.
