Nah I was just trying to say men aren't that complicated. There are not usually layers of subtext to anything I am doing.

A kid can't get a 4 for effort? Emailed to ask about the grading and was told DD did the best she could and tried really hard. So what do we get ... a 3 for effort.
More educational stupidity.

We probably do it more here than other places. That is because the other boards have idiots who just want to fight about everything.

I have already been instructed by my spouse that I can say hello, good bye and thank you only at the meetings. I guess I am usually not very pleasant when things don't make sense. Go figure.
We have the 1-4 system too. The most frustrating part of it is that it's very arbitrary. You used to be able to take a test and you could tell by how many you got right whether it was an a b or c. WIth the 1-4 system you can do everything perfectly and still come out with a 3. I don't like any measurement system that is based on opinion rather than fact.

Excellent wisdom.

Well in this company, the supervisor is the highest position outside of being the owner, so after this no advancement but could lead to another position at a different company in the future
Don't get your underoos too tight over the drama comment.

What type of phone is she getting (or can we ask with your better half monitoring your posts?). Make sure it has unlimited texting, that's what they spend most of the day doing.

Both of the children have asked for iphones, but we have held strong so far.
No smartphone. I added the unlimited text plan when i had to post all Ron's pictures.

I've found some good buyers already for it.

I am hoping we can keep any loans for them as low as possible, but DS is talking Harvard or MIT so we'll see.
Paid my way thru school, which was under $1000 under a semester. I told my dds they can go anywhere, but if they want me to pay for it, have to go to my university for free tuition. I could save a lot of money by not going to WDW.

When I told you to break a leg running the 5K, I was kidding.

Seriously hope it isn't a fracture.

No fish pictures to post today. The seas were rocking and we decided to not go out. Going tomorrow though. Did decide to go out and have a nice lunch. Spent the afternoon at a bar overlooking the ocean. Yea I know, my life sucks.

That lingerie shop scene is one of many good ones. I haven't had any clerks like that show me their pantyline. I liked seeing her on the diving board at the pool as well.
