Jan 27th 2011 11:00AM MacD - I had a good chuckle at your comment, especially since I first read it as: My vet married his dog, bit the new bride... I quickly realized my mistake by the end of your comment. Thanks for the laugh (even if you didn't intend it that way!).
Jan 15th 2011 11:57PM Debbie - are we the only ones who realize these Shout sheets have been around for a long time? I've used them for at least the past three years and haven't sorted a load in all that time. What's all the hype about a "new product"? I even checked the date of the article, thinking perhaps they had rerun an old one. Also, I agree that using cold water doesn't eliminate color transfer. I use the sheets in ever load, almost always in cold water, and always find some color has transferred to the sheet (instead of onto other clothes in the load).
Nov 6th 2010 8:35PM Millie - Yes, what I said could be considered mean and unkind. Then again, to me, Jennifer's plan to have her two chows euthanized for her own selfish desire to keep them with her forever is beyond mean and unkind. Why should two living, breathing creatures die for her own satisfaction? True, I don't know Jennifer, nor do I think I would want to. As I said, she comes across (at least to me) as a very sick, twisted individual.
Nov 5th 2010 12:53AM I cannot believe no one has replied to your comment!! You LOVE your chows so much that you would rather they be euthanized (how would this continue their existance???) than make arrangements for someone else to care for them after you die or are otherwise unable to care for them? Is this the provision you will make in your will for their CARE? You come across as a very sick, twisted person. Kind of makes me hope that someone who LOVES YOU SO MUCH has made the same provisions for your CARE when they pass, since I would bet there is no one else who could "understand all the odd and unusual ways" that make you happy.
Oct 26th 2010 11:58PM How do you figure she's just as much at fault as the man who punched and beat her? What, in your opinion, does SHE have to apologize to her fans for? Way to blame the victim and not the perpetrator!!!
Oct 23rd 2010 1:17AM I've only seen one poster (whose husband had mental problems) mention anything similar, but have you considered the possibility that your wife might have a physical (or mental) condition/problem that has lead to this? It could be anything - sex was painful for her, there's a hormone imbalance (that even she may not be aware of), she gained weight (either with or without the pregnancies) and no longer considers herself attractive so it's easier (for her) to avoid intimate physical contact, or she may be suffering from long-standing depression, which some people can hide for a long time. I'm certainly not medically qualified in the least and I'm not "making exuses" for your wife, but if there's any way you can convince her to see her doctor for a complete checkup/evaluation, it sounds like at least a starting point. Also, it sounds like her staying up late may be a diversionary tactic that succeeds in eliminating the chance of intimate contact. Just my thoughts...
Oct 20th 2010 9:38PM Seems to me like just one more thing supporting my decision to not do Facebook. This is in addition to all the privacy and other problems with Facebook that have come to light in the past couple months. You want to be on Facebook? OK by me. However, regardless if you're my sister, my niece, an old friend, or even my fiance, just honor my request to not put my name or picture or any mention of me on your page. While I have nothiing to hide, anything I want to share with others in my life can be shared easily by other means.
Oct 13th 2010 7:32PM As the old saying goes, "Opinions are like a--holes, everybody's got one." That said, I guess you're entitled to yours. It's for sure nobody else seems to want it...
Oct 12th 2010 3:03PM After one on my sisters either look forever or never fully repaid loans I made to her (on only verbal agreement), I responded to her next request agreeing to the loan only if we both signed paperwork spelling out terms of the loan and repayment (how much paid back and when, interest, late payment penalty, etc.). Her response was to the effect that "gee, I could get all those requirements by borrowing from a bank." I then told her to go ahead and do just that, knowing that she was unable to go that route. She wanted the loan badly enough to agree to my stipulations and eventually fulfilled the repayment obligation. A few years later, she and her husband borrowed money from me(with the same paperwork and stipulations), made 1-1/2 payments out of ten scheduled, and I've not seen a dime since. It's been almost 15 years, so their amount owed (due to interest, late payment penalty, etc.) is now astronomical!! Due to a separate matter, I cut off all contact with her about 2-1/2 years ago, and can honestly say I gained more by doing that than I would have gotten back by their repayment of the last loan!!
Sep 23rd 2010 2:53PM Apparently you don't have kids!! You would expect a 3, 4, or 6 year old to read what was on a paper around a sippy cup??? With lots of younger children, everything goes directly to/in their mouth. A sippy cup is something they probably use, would recognize instantly, and know just what to do with. It probably wouldn't have taken much of the contents to poison a toddler. Also, what's your point about her letting her kids run on the floor after chemical treatment? The sippy cup was found outside her front door, not inside the house. imho, this constitutes pure carelessness on the part of the Okin man. Whether or not he knew there were kids at this house, why was he using a sippy cup for dangerous chemicals? If I were the mother, I'd be less concerned about a refund for the treatment, and more concerned that Orkin took action to insure that the pest control technician NEVER does such a thing again. Hopefully, Orkin's action against the technician will do that.
