I should clarify that I'm all for teaching kids responsible drinking by letting them drink in moderation. My siblings and I were allowed a small amount of like wine cooler or whatever on special occasions. And when we grew up and the other kids were all like "yay alcohol", we were like "smeh, whatever". But this dude in my office was going on about how his dad gave them big glasses of blue curacao and lemonade onna regular basis and what an awesome idea that is. He was getting totally drunk at like the age of 10. Sure, it gave him the same "smeh, whatever" reaction to stupid teenage drinking that I'd had, but only because he'd already done the stupid teenage drinking, just at a younger age. Letting kids drink, cool. Getting them drunk, not cool.

You're not going to get thrown in jail for giving your kids a taste of alcohol unless you live in some dire theocratic middle-eastern hell-hole.

Traffic-based things that should be obvious but apparently aren't:
- You do actually have to stop at stop signs.
- "Right turn only" lanes aren't the same as "Right turn oh crap I need to go left" lanes.
- Don't tailgate a car with good brakes. Especially if you've already pissed them off.

But hey. We've already established that the world's problems are caused by stupid people.

Can I add "If you're turning right at an intersection onto a road with mutiple lanes of traffic, turn into the right-most one...especially if you have a red light and there's a car in the left lane doing about 40...or better yet, don't turn at all if you have a red light and there's a car crossing the intersection"?

Good thing I already had my foot on the brake because the speed limit drops right there.

  • No, your computer isn't malfunctioning because of a virus. I checked. The software is just crap.

  • No, your computer does not need replaced.
  • No, I'm not going gaga over the iPad or whatever else just came out.

Preferably before you actually commence the turn, not as an afterthought when you've almost completed the turn. Also, your indicators are not just to let other drivers know what your intentions are - they can be useful to pedestrians as well.

I live right near a T-junction, and I tend to just walk onto the road if the car at the head of the junction isn't indicating. Generally, I'm willing to wait for the car (I realize that getting out of my street can be painful), but if they can't show me some courtesy, I'm happy to reciprocate. :)

Updating a computer system should make it better, not worse. I'm not sure why anyone would think that removing the ability to select multiple items at once would be a good idea. Likewise changing the inventory system so that if the inventory is ever empty, it is impossible for a standard user to put anything into it. The only solution we've been offered is to add a fake item to it and leave it there forever.

Just because I have long, pretty, hair that I take care of and I am quite happy with does not mean I am female.
Went to a store today, one of the big ones with samples, and question after question of "Ma'am, would you like to try...?"
Come ON, people. There's a few other signs that I'm male, such as masculine face and hands, legs covered in thick hair, and my Adam's apple. Most ladies don't have an Adam's apple.

Devil's advocate: hair is one of the biggest indicators of gender, especially viewed from behind. There are some very butch women out there, and some very feminine-looking men. Mistakes happen, and sometimes it really is impossible to tell so you have to guess.

Maybe the store has a trans-friendly policy & the clerks haven't been trained properly. Or they tend to err on the side of caution.

Yes, people making mistakes about one's gender / sexual orientation can be annoying, but it can be a lot worse than a simple mistake which is probably based on a desire to be polite.

How times have changed. Forty-odd years ago (and less in lots of places), you'd be more likely complaining that guys want to beat the crap out of you for having long hair.

It's not terribly hard to simply remove any gender assumptions from interactions with a customer. "Ma'am, would you like to try..." can just as easily be "Hi, would you [...]" or "Excuse me, would you [...]". I learned that lesson right quick doing retail.

Things I should not have to say:

Yes, I play a lot of videogames, no, I am not fat, and I do not ever plan to be.
ALTERNATIVELY:
Yes, I play a lot of videogames, no, I don't want to kill people in real life.

Yes, I do listen to a very specific genre of hip-hop(nerdcore). No, I don't know (or care!) who Shit Nizzle and Jiggy Joe and whonot are. No, I don't like many other types of hip-hop. No, really, get it away from me.

Yes, I am very good at anatomy, but that's not because I want to kill people. (I don't even)

Red octagon means stop, regardless of it's border.

Though I really haven't ever noticed it's border. :oops:

In France this is clearly a rule, and you are supposed to stop before crossing the border. When driving I think I am more likely to notice a border like that than a sign. Because I have to watch the ground I drive on.

Ditto. Though to be honest a great many stopsigns in my area have no marking on the pavement.

Don't know about elsewhere, but in Florida, the law says that the solid white line near the stop sign is where you officially have to stop. If there was no line, I'd pretty much guarantee a traffic lawyer could get you off for running it (just thinking out loud, btw).
