[ - ] We do a name out of a hat swap in our family where each uncle and/or aunt buys 1 gift of around $50-75 for one niece or nephew. BIL (DH's sister's husband) drew our 15 yo son and asked what he wanted. He wants an M rated XBox game (which we have no objection to). BIL said "I'm sorry but in good conscience I cannot buy this for him. I will never buy my children games with this rating and it would be hypocritical to buy them for your son. Can you suggest something else." Okaaay …. 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Technically true but not really in the spirit of buying for someone else's kid when you've asked what to buy them. You don't say "what can I get them" and then say "no, I'm not going to get that, what else?" [ Reply | More ]

I see his point a little. But not much. It's not his job to decide what your kid does or does not need. What if you did that? "I know you said Justin wants a football but I don't really believe in boys playing football it's too dangerous. What else can we get him?" [ Reply | More ]

op. There is no real problem. Obviously this is what will happen. It was just one of those absurd things that I wish I could put on FB but can't. Very like him, however. He once heard DS say "shit" when he was like 13 and literally sat him down and gave him a lecture about what kind of man he wanted to grow up to be, and it wasn't a man who had to resort to using words like "shit." DH and I heard about it later and just rolled our eyes. All these things are so easy to say when your oldest child is five years old. [ Reply | More ]

PS 29, PS 58 are great. Rents are high but IME you get a much better quality of life. Subway ride is a little longer but you can walk to everything you need including a lot of really good restaurants, the people are friendly and there is a good sense of community and you can have a car and use it to drive to whole foods/fairway and places like Ikea as well as to get away. I would never want to live anywhere else, only thing it lacks is a lot of green space but Brooklyn Bridge Park is awesome and a quick walk [ Reply | More ]

super dark wood floors are definitely on the way out, trend-wise. I think it all depends on your other furniture/decor. Like the suggestion to look at Houzz and see if you like it when well-styled.

A parent showed up at a school performance wearing her fast food uniform with visor - obviously she had come directly from work - and Visormom posted about how disrespectful and awful she was. In the best UB spirit, Visormom was ripped up one side and down the other. [ Reply | More ]

I've had this happen where nanny arrives early and says she is saving seats. I smile and scoot on in. It's first come, first serve. I waited on line to get in so if you are not there the seat is mine. If you are a dw or dh saving seat for spouse that is different imo. [ Reply | More ]

This happens all the time, not sure the older women are even related to the kids. I wish schools would appoint someone to verify that attendees are family members or invited friends. Crazy. And they're belligerent when you ask them to move. How do they even know about these performances? so, so strange. [ Reply | More ]

^^ not talking about nannies; just older women who show up and you've never seen them before; happens a lot when the school performance is held in a church in the afternoon. The church doesn't invite the congregation. Doesn't even list the performance on their online calendar. Calendar might say "reserved" for the block of time but doesn't state why. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Met a guy at work who is married, we became close friends and admitted that in different circumstances we would have pursued a relationship. He then mentions that he was already planning to leave her.. Okay. Great. I went on vacation for a month and he was going to leave her blah blah blah. He calls me the day I'm back to say she's pregnant. Obviously I won't be having anything to do with that guy anymore but I've spent the whole week ready to rip someone's head off. I am so angry and I'm not really sure who it's aimed at. How can I get past this rage? 52 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
