[ - ] Facebook etiquette question. I just joined FB and within a day friended several dozen friends and old college buddies. Some of them have children between age 18 - 25 who have sent me friend requests. I haven't responded because I'm kind of uncomfortable with that. Am I being uptight? Also, the mom of one of my best friend's is one of my 'friends' and she keeps on sending me requests to play stupid online games, links to online gambling and other stuff I cannot stand. It would rude to unfriend her, yes? 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] s/o horrible doctors, can everyone reading this PLEASE take a note to themselves and tell there friends to not ask doctor acquaintances anything outside of the office. We go to work and get paid to do our work properly and with the aid of nurses, a patient history, note taking and a proper work environment. Most of you have insurance so can go to the doctor and for those that don't it is even more uncomfortable when I suggest something and you can't afford it. A dinner party, park, or via email for you to talk about your changing mole, bowel problems, a change to your medication, or your relative's sisters condition and if I think the doctor did the right thing is inappropriate. And please do not take a picture of and x-ray or rash and forward it to your doctor friend or friend's spouse for a second opinion. We do not work for free and do need a break outside of work in addition to the fact that it is bad medical practice. I don't ask you to design a label or for attorney advice during your free time and it is a major medical malpractice liability. Please stop asking the doctors you know to call in for prescriptions for bronchitis antibiotics, migraines, Viagra, propecia, valtrex, anti-fungal meds, depression meds or any emergency refill of x,y, or z. Please stop putting your doctor acquaintances in an uncombortable position. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The writing is not clever. If you read other plays written at the same time, you'll see a lot of the same writing. Shakespeare was a bit more creative than some of his contemporaries (coined some new words/phrases, more true to iambic pentameter than some writers), but there is no real reason to read his works over those of dozens of other writers of the last 100 years.

We are currently separate but he keeps pushing me to get back together and have another . We don't really get along but love our dc so much it has been 1000x worth the bad judgment. I always thought people like this were so stupid but both of us are older and I am no way going to have another with anyone else ever (or even a DH).

How much does he make? Unfortunately, in many jobs like Ibanking, medicine and law you cant just work 40% less for 40% less money.
