[ - ] I have a friend who is a nice person but she has her own business and keeps calling me in the middle of the day while I am at work. She tries to dominate my time every weekend and just doesn't seem to understand that I have other friends in addition to wanting to spend time with my own family. She is a nice person but is just too much. She is going through a hard time so I don't want to drop her but I can't handle the amount of attention/socialization she is constantly seeking.

I'm one and done too. I think there are several things going on: percentage of people think it is a duty to have as many as possible (for religious reasons); there is a myth that only children are weird and that still persists today; people think that siblings are beneficial (which is true in a lot of cases but it is not a general rule in my opinion); the idea that with more kids, there's more love to go around, including caring for parents in their elder years; and finally, people want more kids for whatever reason, and expect others to have the same wants/desires and just can't "understand" why you would stop with one. Those are my thoughts. [ Reply | More ]

It's such a silly association. [ Reply | More ]

We chose 33 over 11. I think you just go with your gut- people have such strong feelings about it, but I don't think it really matters. 33 was closer to our home, which was a plus. We liked that it was a much smaller school than 11 (although we definitely liked 11's vibe, principal, and afterschool programs). We also liked the academic and enrichments in the G&T classrooms at PS33. In the end, PS 11's principal told our tour a number of times that the G&T program was no different than the Gen Ed program there (which may or may not have been a good thing- who knows). But for us, our zoned gen ed was already good, so only made sense for us to go to a G&T that was different than gen ed, so we chose 33. I think both would be great choices. [ Reply | More ]

I don't think she's asking you to write her essays but perhaps some guidance. I have a friend who went through the process this past fall and is kind enough to pass on all her notes and suggestions to me. I will be going through it this fall. If she truly is a dear friend, you could at least guide her. [ Reply | More ]

You sound like a crappy friend. It's stressful and she's trying to get an objective opinion. [ Reply | More ]

+1. If she's an acquaintance, I get your complaint. If she's a DF, then you aren't being a good friend. [ Reply | More ]

There is really no way to know so don't stress about it. If there is no room over your seat the flight attendant will help you find space. [ Reply | More ]

It won't be lost if you check it at the gate. [ Reply | More ]

This. So much more reliable to check at gate than at check-in. [ Reply | More ]

Unlikely as your bag will be hand carried from the door to the cargo hold. Last on, first off. [ Reply | More ]

No if they gate check it goes from the flight attendant to the baggage handlers and directly into the belly of the plane. That's where they put strollers. Won't get lost. What causes luggage to get lost is the long route to regular baggage claim [ Reply | More ]

I don't get this refusal to check baggage thing. I hate seeing these bumbling fools on airplanes trying sloppily to lift and squeeze their shit into the overhead after looking around all confused looking for space. Check your shit. [ Reply | More ]

I hate when that happens! I have way too many days when I am literally forcing myself to wait until 11:30 to eat. I eat breakfast so early, and don't usually have time for any kind of snack, that I am starving by then. [ Reply | More ]
