Forum: Gossip
Hey bubbers,

Gossip is definitely something that makes a lot of people uncomfortable. Daniela makes a good point though, that gossip isn't always bad. It's just sharing information that not everyone knows already.

The thing that really bothers me about gossip is when someone talks bad about another person that is supposedly their friend. It makes you wonder what kind of friend they really are, and if they are saying things about you.

Gossip is something that will always happen, whether you're young or old, in school or working, single or in a relationship, and a parent or not. It's a part of life.

Great topic, thanks for the forum!

Forum: Should kids be able to choose what to eat?
Hey Grace,

I'm with Kasey on this one: yes and no! I will give them a few choices to pick from, and then what they decide is what is made for dinner. And then they have to eat what's made, soccer they helped pick it out!

I was like you as a kid, never had a problem eating the vegetables. I'm still like that today. You give me a veggie tray and a cookie tray, and I'm going to stick to the veggies!

Thanks for the forum, have a nice day :)

Forum: Have you removed your wisdom teeth?
Hey there,

I have had all 4 of mine or at the same time. The bottom two were filly impeached, they were actually laying sideways in my gums! I was very nervous beforehand, just as you are. But I have to say, I'm thankful that I didn't back out of the procedure. I have not had any issues since then. My mouth hurt for several days afterwards, but it was manageable with pain meds.

My biggest advice: follow directions with the medications! I was prescribed a few things, including ibuprofen, and I forgot 1 dose of the ibuprofen on about day 3 post-surgury. Man did I wish I'd paid more attention and not missed that! I didn't realize how much it helped, but once I took it, I was feeling so much better with a half hour.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

Good morning!

For those tackling exams today, I wish you luck! I've taken the day off to spend with my daughter, since I was gone for 4 days last week due to work, and then was gone all weekend too. We're baking m&m cookies and going to see Santa today!

My question for you today is a pretty controversial one. I'm interested to see where people stand on this topic.

In regards to abortion, are you pro-life or pro-choice? Does it depend on the situation?

Disclaimer: your response will in no way change my opinion of you. I am genuinely curious as to your thoughts.

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to your response! Have a great Tuesday!

Subject: Re: How do you feel after a fight?

Forum: How do you feel after a fight?
Hey bubbers,

This is a great question, one that I guess I'm not too sure of the answer! I have a feeling that the answer would be different based on the type of relationship you have with the person you've gotten into a fight with. No one likes to admit they are wrong, but if I realize after the fight that I was in the wrong, then I will most certainly go and apologize.

One thing to remember is that not every fight needs an apology. Many fights are because the two people involved need to get something off their chest, and there is nothing wrong with that, so no reason to apologize. Sometimes you just need some time to cool down and let some time pass.

There are times that I will apologize, not for the content of the argument, but for how I talked to (or yelled at) the person. Or maybe some words that I used that I regret saying. Even though you may not be in the wrong, it's still important to make sure the person knows that you understand you could have used better choice words, or not yelled at them as much as you did.

Thinking back to arguments I've had though, I would say that most of my arguments with my husband, its a pretty even mix of who apologizes first. But the apology, regardless of who it's from first, is always for the way we talked to the other person. We are both entitled to our opinions, and have the right to express them.

Thanks for the forum, and have a nice day :)

Forum: Do you use your given name or a nickname?
Hey Katelyn,

I have always used a nickname. My given name is Elizabeth, but I have never gone by that. I've always gone by Beth. I don't even respond when people call me Elizabeth, mainly because I don't realize they are talking to me when they call me that!

Thanks for the forum, have a nice day :)

Subject: Re: Pumping gas

Forum: Pumping gas
Hey Seth,

I see your point with the gas station getting free labor; I never thought of it that way!

I do remember the days of being able to drive up to a full service gas station and not have to get out of the car. Living in the north where it's very cold in the winter, it was a lifesaver on those frigid days when you just wanted to stay in the warm car.

However, I think that part of the reason this is not common anymore, is the increase in using credit/debit cards instead of cash. There is a lot more liability when you hand your card to a gas attendant who then takes to put it in the machine to pay for the gas. Someone could say that the attendant took the card number and used it. Or if they are using the card as debit, the customer would have to get out anyhow to enter their PIN number. When people paid for so much with cash many years ago, it was just more common and convenient to have someone else pump for you.

To be honest, it doesn't really bother me to pump my own gas, except those freezing cold days, when I try to plan when I get gas for a time my husband is with me! I just think of it as one of the things you have to deal with when you have the luxury of owning a vehicle.

Thanks for the forum, have a nice day :)

Forum: Grades or teacher's feedback
Hey there,

It's been a while since I've been in school and getting graded, but I think that I first anticipate the grade. I want to know that I passed and that I did well. Once I know my grade, and how it affected my overall grade in the class, then I'll look at feedback to know how I could have done better, and what to do next time to improve.

Thanks for the forum, have a nice day!

Subject: The ultimate dinner guest?

Forum: The ultimate dinner guest?
Happy Monday morning!

I can barely keep my eyes open this morning. I'm ready to crawl back into bed for a nice long nap!

We all dream of that one person that we would love to sit down and have a wonderful meal and/or conversation with. For some it might be a relative they lost a long time ago, or never got to meet. For others it could be a best friend living thousands of miles away. Or maybe it's someone famous, be it an entertainer, politician, athlete, etc.

If you could invite anyone in the world, who would you most like as your dinner guest? Would you make them dinner, or take them to a high class restaurant?

Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy your Monday!

Forum: Holiday Traditions
Hey Joey,

That's quite the tradition! I've never heard of anyone do such a thing, and I bet you guys really look forward to that all year!

The biggest reason in my family is with my mom, sister, and I. We get together for a weekend and bake so many cookies we don't know what to do with them! I actually just got home from that a couple hours ago. It's a long and exhausting weekend, but we enjoy it and always make me memories.

Thanks for the forum!
