[ - ] Does anyone have experience with Baruch AP? I'm pretty sure my ds is going to end up there since his 1st and 2nd choices were long shots. Do kids often move form AP to SP? Is there really much f a difference? How do kids like Baruch? Is it a fun place to be or is it a drag? Ds hated it when we toured, but I kind of liked it. His feeling was the only reason we didn't put sp down as 2nd choice and now I am regretting it. 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP again & I was not really joking. We have a really small lot & you have to find street parking sometimes so it sucks when someone takes up two spaces so I was just trying to keep it light but say something. His response just felt to flirty to me for what was just a reminder to stay in one parking spot. And I do like him as a coworker and I am not reporting anything. Just will be more direct & matter of fact with him in the future. [ Reply | More ]

He was shocked that you have him grief over not parking correctly, something a lowly woman should never comment on, cuz teh womez are the worst drivers ya know.
