Social Skills Tip of the Day

When someone tells you to "Piss off," they don't mean that literally.  Really.

Social Skills Tip of the Day

There is NEVER a good reason to pull on or otherwise "fix" your underpants in public, even if someone just gave you a wedgie.

Social Skills Tip of The Day!

When someone says something that you KNOW to be incorrect or inaccurate, it is impolite to interrupt them and tell them. Wait until they have finished speaking before calling them an idiot and pointing out their mistake.

Social Skills Tip of the Day

When a police officer asks you to do something, just do it.  He has a gun and other various devices that can hurt you, or worse, make you pee your pants in public.

Social Skills Tip of The Day

Fair does NOT mean that everyone gets the same thing.  Fair is when everyone gets what they need,  Not everyone needs the 57in television with the kung-fu grip.  Except my husband.

Social Skills Tip of the Day

When you are somewhere such as a long meeting, it is not a good idea to roll your eyes and say, "Great God Almighty! Is this EVER going to END?"  No matter how long you've been sitting there.  It is also not a good idea to fake a seizure to get out of that same meeting, either.

Social Skills Tip of the Day

When you are talking to someone and suddenly notice that they have a large hairy mole on their neck or some other oddity in the facial area, do NOT stare at it, or comment on it, or crack jokes about it, no matter how badly you want to do this. The other person will not be happy about your attention to their flaws, even if you are a plastic surgeon

If you are over the age of three....

If you are over three years of age and in the stall of a public bathroom, it is not considered polite to begin singing loudly to cover up the sounds of "going". Not even if you're singing Frank Sinatra.

It is Not Considered Polite...

...to stick your fingers in your ears when someone is singing.

In Conversations...

Do not interrupt the person who is talking to tell them they have something in their teeth.  This is considered rude. Wait until they finish their sentence first, then talk. 

Before You Leave the Bathroom...

Check your shoes for the random piece of toilet paper, and make sure that your skirt is pulled down instead of stuck in your underpants.

Driving Distracted?

It should be legal to punch you.  In the face.  Put down the damn cell phone, sandwich, drink, newspaper, etc.! 

And if you've got children in the car and you are doing all these things, it should be legal for those kids to punch you in the face, too.

Why is it not legal...

to punch bad drivers in the face?

I am still learning

If I have the time, I like to 'tinker' with computer stuff.  I don't mean that I take my computer apart, just that I like to press this or that button just to see what happens.  I tend to take an intuitive view of computers and what they can do, and that is how I go about trying to figure things out. This is why I am not good at math, of course.  Math either is or it isn't.  Nothing intuitive about it, at least not at the most basic levels.  2+2=4.  Which is not how my mind works.  I sometimes think that I would have learned a lot more about math if the teachers would have shown me the end result of a problem and asked me to work backwards.  I have never seen any teacher try this, but I definitely think that it would work for some students as a way to get them to think about a new concept.

I'm probably speaking heresy....

American Idol

Apparently it's just me, but I haven't been impressed with ANY of the singers.  Nobody has  been particularly talented, lots of pitch problems, etc.  It's like a horrible middle school talent show.

Craptacular Drivers

Please tell me what part of the brain shuts off when people get into their cars.  What makes usually normal people turn into raving idiots who do stupid things like read the newspaper while driving?  Why do normally rational people begin screaming profanities when they get behind the wheel?

It drives me crazy.  Stop it.

Bah.  I spent 30 minutes sitting in the car waiting for my husband after he texted me saying he was ready to go home.  We do this all the time.  His 'ready to go' means at least fifteen more minutes.  Geez.

If Zombies are dead, why do they need to eat people?  They don't digest anything--they're dead!  So whatever they eat just stays in their stomachs, rotting.  After they ate enough, they would explode--end of Zombie. 

Also, if Zombies are dead, then if they killed a person, that person would become a Zombie, yes?  So their little bits and pieces would be moving around trying to 'eat' the Zombie who ate them.  Which would be the end of that Zombie, right?

I hate staff meetings

Apparently this didn't work yesterday when I was trying to use my cell phone to post.  I'm still learning this stuff!

What I said was that there is much said in a staff meeting that could, and should, be sent out in an email instead of having a meeting.  Most of our staff meetings are long, repetitive affairs where our boss basically tells us we are horrible and have to do better, we argue about stuff that isn't debatable(like the law), and the same fifteen topics are the agenda.  My butt falls asleep about 30 minutes into the meeting, and the rest of me follows suit about 40 minutes after that.
