I can’t believe this is still a thing. I can’t believe there are still so damn many men who can’t get why #NotAllMen IS a problem. 555 more words

A naturall foole that could never learn by heart the order of numerall words, as one, two, and three, may observe every stroak of the Clock, and nod to it, or say one, one, one; but can never know what houre it strikes.

Wedding Wednesday: How Much Food To Serve

Cherished readers, two of The Lady’s correspondents in the past few weeks have asked this question (not a carbon copy but the general idea) so it must be a timely topic. 329 more words

When Captain Yale drinks his coffee, he slurps it. Suhhhhluurhp, suhsuhsuhlurrrrp. This happens three times a day. When I drink my coffee, I tip my cup to clear off just enough foam so that when I drink out of the cup the foam does not hit my lips. Treat the foam as a decorative layer. By the time I get to the end of the cup, there is a layer of foam with either a heart or leaf shape, depending on who prepared the coffee. The leaf is definitely executed with more care. The person who prepares the coffee with the leaf looks like he should be from Salt Lake City. I think I annoy Captain Yale a lot because I can't sit still at work. I mean I get it. Blank I hate me at work too. | I spent 5 hours of the work day on some project of mine which involved worrying for an hour about whether Super 77, when dried out between two layers of _, would cause an explosion when run through the _. A tangible sort of worry. A sweat through my poplin shirt sort of worry as I hit Print. No explosion, but the worry was enough to make me reconsider adhesives. Silicon it is. When I see the word silicon I think of those children's toys, those weird infinity wiggle tubes--what exactly was the point of those / the things have nothing to do with silicon / what I am writing has nothing to do with anything. / At 11:30, my phone apes out and rings and vibrates: It's time to go to bed! Stop whatever the blank you're doing! You better not be staring at a screen! | The slurping really bothers me. It's the sort of shit only men who don't put the toilet seat down at an office where everyone shares the same wc do. It is rude. There should be a Seat's Up! alarm in the office wc. Thing'd be going off all day. Tuck yr junk in seat down wash yr hands u fuck. | I got so much done at work today. I responded to all emails within 5 minutes. | Phone says it is time to sleep. Peace Out!

Workplace Musts (and then some)

The workplace….so many behavioral problems can pop up in the workplace.  The office refrigerator, microwave, and copier can become major sources of conflict.  Don’t even get me started on the rudeness of LOUDLY clicking keyboard keys during a staff meeting!    401 more words
