[ - ] Posted here a while back about new neighbors who moved in next door with a dog that is barking non stop whenever they are not home. I left a polite note for the owners explaining the issue. I also contacted the management company and their response was - please let us know not the owner and this is pet friendly building. Whenever I call the management office I get a voice mail and it takes them 24-48 hrs to respond if they do at all, so obviously they will never be able to witness the issue themselves. Hate dog owners :( 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I kept the incident secret so as not to throw our entire group of friends into chaos (also to avoid looking pathetic in front of everyone). Essentially I just avoid her, but end up getting pulled into group conversations at parties. Dreading an upcoming event because I know she'll be there, and seeing her in the same room as DH makes me anxious. 22 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I agree with a couple of the comments above. She is an annoying gnat. A small puff if air blows her off course. Don't treat her with great significance. Second, keep you head up. She (and your DH) behaved badly, not you. You have absolutely nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed of. By acting confident and self assured, you signal that this crap is so far beneath you that you don't see for to engage. And then don't engage. She is no friend and you are justified in being nothing more than cordial. Let your time and manner (not words or nasty looks) make her feel about a inch tall. [ Reply | More ]

I found the place while actually looking for information about NYC schools/how much money is takes to raise a family in NYC (no, not to marry someone who can afford it, but to make sure I position my career in such a way that I will be able to afford it no matter who I marry). Sometimes I ask general parenting questions that I'm genuinely curious about but can't ask my own mother without her freaking out that I'm pg. I always label them clearly as questions from a non-mother. But mostly I've found that the vast majority of the questions have nothing to do with parenting whatsoever. [ Reply | More ]
