Yeah, exactly.

I've emailed the lady in charge of the practical skills lab and the videos (she didn't make them herself). I just wanted to be triply sure I was right before I emailed them and put it on facebook as a PSA.

Hopefully the exam should be fine - we are literally given videos of the four things we have to do, and got time to practice them with all the kit. But I never as do well in practical exams (fine with not an exam situation, nervous as hell when being examined).

Look! Transgendered people.

Most move from being male to being female.
This shows 'Penis Envy' to be a Wrong guess.

Women really did not want a penis.
They wanted rights and money.

It seems a lot of men want vaginas and pretty clothes.
I hope fashion changes to allow men to dress pretty.

I think manly men look good in dresses.
Like kilts, bathrobes and Asian robes.

Had a large tumour removed from his chest yesterday.

He's doing fine. Was very dopey yesterday (can be difficult to tell the difference). Now trotting around getting his cone stuck on furniture, clothes, etc.

So, I had some contractors in my house today doing some work, and it seems that one of them ate food from my fridge. This doesn't seem right to me, but I've never had work done on my house before. I've looked online and some people apparently think you should leave donuts and coffee and breakfast for the workers. Did I breach some unspoken etiquette by not doing that? Am I going to look like the asshole if I say something?

Edit: So apparently it's kind of a big deal. I let the guy who runs the company know, and he informed me that the workers who were in my house today would not be coming back. Unless he's got backup crews I anticipate this will push the project completion date to the right, but I'm ok with that if it means getting a crew in that I can trust.

I'll admit that I'd never heard of leaving food out for a crew working in or on your home, but whatever - if you don't tip the valet, it doesn't mean the valet can take the change out of your car seats. Same principle.

I'll offer drinks if they are there for a long time or working in the heat. By which I mean ice water, tea or coffee.

I suppose, but this feels somehow a perverse definition. Perverse, I tell you.

Also you should always offer any people who are infrequent visitors/new to being in your house beverages (coffee/tea/water), at the very least, but they can't just go around taking stuff if you don't.

Yeah, I'd offer tea or something, but only if I was around - I'd probably forgot to leave stuff out for them if I wasn't in. Generally not food though.

AS someone who does work in folks houses on occasion, that is very not ok, with a serious underline. We aren't supposed to take food or drink if folk offer them to us (though occasionally we do, as stated above, on really hot days or if they bring us coffee or tea, to be polite).

And if I have someone working on my house, same thing - I offer them coffee, tea, water, etc. but taking without asking makes me wonder if they took other things without asking - and bringing it tot the attention of their boss is probably the best way to handle it.

Well, this just gets more and more exciting. Apparently the guy who he fired, he's now discovered has absconded with the money he was given to purchase materials, and can't be gotten a hold of. I've done an inventory of my house and nothing else seems to be missing, thankfully. So weird.

There's even a phrase in the UK for the way builders drink tea. It's builder's tea. It's not a very imaginative phrase. Very strong, very milky, and very sweet. Just... more of everything, really.
