So, did you find the Missing Items?
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

I had an email from a woman, in her 30s, maybe early 40s.
She signed off with She/Her.

What does that mean?
Is she just confirming that she's a female, or does one acknowledge her with one of those pronouns?
Did any of you receive the memo?

Here is idea:
Save those amazon boxes and reuse them, place junk you want to get rid of into the box and place it at front door.
Sure enough someone will probably steal it. :biggrin:

Junk is gone

I used a cleaning service yesterday - felt all fancy! Damn they did a fab job... wish I had the coin to become used to having it monthly.

Tried that and it worked but a few days later they came back with all my stuff and all of theirs!

Now I have twice as much junk! :-X
Sadly my Wife recently passed away so I purchased a bottle of 20 year old scotch and poured it on her grave.

I did filter it through my Kidneys first.

Oh well, I guess go back to the exploding box of glitter. As thieves reward for stealing.

It's the thing that people do nowadays to show they support the "I don't like regular pronouns" group.

Because it can be hard to tell by email who thinks they're what, you have to let people know, now.

Not something I do. I do it the old-fashioned way, signing off with "Mrs"

All items accounted for! Except for the ones that shipped late, now I just hope they arrive here in time :/

I usually keep all my gifts in an older suitcase, so I don't lose them. They didn't all fit this year. I had a cute mug for my coworker, left in a gift bag tucked away beside my dresser. I relocated that bag a few times, apparently. I did eventually find it.

A word of warning, don't look when you flush. :200:

Uncovered toilets shoot out aerosol plumes 'like a rocket'.

You've been warned, flush and run.

I was told this video featured Catsumi and GordonH, but I don't believe it because GordonH doesn't swear.
