Re: “Cry Me a River of Jello-y Cranberry Sauce

What I can't make sense of is this:

The reason people say that this is an issue, is that the workers are too poor to "quit if they don't like their schedule." So, the solution is to boycott the stores until they close on the holidays, giving these people some forced, unpaid days off.

Personally, if I was in a situation where I felt that I couldn't quit a job that was an affront to my dignity because I was too poor, I think I would like the option to work as many days as possible. And that's doubly true for days that have a pay differential.

If you live a life where $100 can make a big difference, then working Thanksgiving can make that difference. And, the people who are least able to say "no," are exactly the people who will get the most relative benefit from that money. I just don't see how this is so obvious a problem as many assert it to be.

Re: “i Don't Know What to Call This Shit

Why do you get to decide what they should want or get from their relationships?

Re: “Hollow Beauty

You typically offer your seat to women? Why? You get my seat only if it looks like you might have trouble standing. I'm pretty sure that's the new (post-90s) gender relations standard. You're not punishing her by behaving as expected. If she expected someone to give up their seat for her, she better get some broken legs.

Re: “Fuck AMC

It's easy to hate because it's so much less risky. Why don't you tell us a few of the things you like? I'd be happy to pick them apart and tell you what a stupid asshole you are for liking them.

Re: “Dear Child Un-Protective Services

If your plan is to take all the kids away from all the bad parents, I suggest making sure you've got some place large enough to put them all. Maybe Nebraska. Good luck convincing DHS to fix all that ails the human race. They've barely got the resources to help the ones that get locked in a closet for weeks after being beaten with a tire iron.

Re: “"Service" Industry

Meh. Don't like it, don't go. If they're actually bad, then they'll go out of business. If it's just you, then they'll be fine. Either way, all is right with the world.

Re: “I Honked at You. Get Over It.

Frank, was it too flowery? I thought that might be the case. Creative writing was never my thing. Here's a more Merc-friendly version:

Honkers are stupid, useless shit-fucks who should move back to Gresham with all the other stupid fucks. If you honk at me, I'll throw a bag of dog shit into your window. Bikes.
