    What do the little flags above a Chinese restaurant kitchen stand for?

    Are they decorative, do they give a message, or are they there to sway when the wind blows such as when someone enters it would cause a suction therefore notifying the cook that someone has come in?

  • HELP! I have a situation that I need advise on.?

    I was out having a cocktail with a very good friend of mine a few nights ago and she had someone take a photo of us using her cell phone. After viewing the picture, she sent it in a text message to a friend of hers. Apparently she sat her phone on top of my black jacket which was sitting on top of the table next to her jacket, purse & our drinks. Later, I stood up and grabbed my jacket and something fell to the floor. We both looked to see what it was and of course it was her phone. Unfortunately the screen was shattered. I felt bad and offered to help pay to have it repaired. The next day, she avoided my telephone calls and text messages. Finally, later in the afternoon she sent me a text and said that she was at T-Mobile and that she didn't have insurance on her phone and they no longer offered the same model phone as hers. She wanted to know what I wanted to do about it. So, I said we should send it off to be repaired and she said NO! When I asked why she replied by saying that she couldn't go without her phone because it is her life line. I explained that if we send it off through T-Mobile that they would offer a loaner phone while hers is being repaired and she said that she didn't want to have to learn a new phone while hers if being repaired. I then stated that T-Mobile sales refurbished phones but she denied that as a possibility and she then added that she doesn't want anything purchased from ebay either because their is no guarantee with those purchases. At that time she tells me that upgraded model is $499.00 and that I should go with her to T-Mobile to get it. I'm sorry but there is no way in hell that I was going to buy her a brand new upgraded model when it wasn't my fault her phone got broke. Actually, she is the one at fault for sitting her black phone on top of my black jacket. Am I missing something here? I mean Geez! I was just trying to be a good friend because I know how devistating it is to have such a incident take place. As of a matter of fact, I probably would have paid for half of the cost of an upgrade but now that she is being so unreasonable and bitchy about it, I'm not so sure she is as good of a friend as I had thought. So what do you think? What would you do? Should I just let it go and forget it happened and see what she does or should I purchase a used, same model phone and mail it to her and then wash my hands of it or just let her take me to small claims court? I am just baffled here. I need some good advise here. We have known each other for 25 years.

  • What has to be done to encourage restaurants to start serving more vegetarian meals?

    Sure it's true that more and more restaurants are beginning to notice that a large amount of the population is becoming more health conscious, but don't you think it should be mandatory that every restaurant offer at least one protein rich vegetarian meal? Just wondered what your views were on this subject.

  • How do you tell your sister that she needs to step up to the plate?

    My father passed away about two years ago leaving my mother all alone. I live over 200 miles away with my own family but fortunately I have two older sisters whom both live within 15 miles of my mothers house.

    My mom has been in and out of the hospital for the last two months so I've been staying with her a week at the time since she's been sick. This also gives my middle sister a break from going back and forth. My oldest sister on the other hand, hasn't so much as stopped by to visit. She didn't even go to see her while she was in the hospital this last time. I find this very upsetting as well as strange considering they have always been so very close. How do I ask her to help us in caring for our mother. It doesn't seem fair for the other two of us that she doesn't contribute her time, not only that, it hurts my moms heart that her first born appears to have no concern for her. I'm very mad about this, but how should I approach her?

  • Why don't more businesses offer Military Discounts?

    It's really hard for me to understand why so many businesses grit their teeth when I ask if they offer a discount to our Military members. It cuts deep when they answer with a big NO. My father retired from the armed services and my husband has in over 24 years of service. As the military continues to relocate us every 3 years I find it financially hard to quit my job, pack up, search for a good school for my child, look for a new home, learn my way around a new city, try to find employment, and during all of this I feel the pain of our finances suffering. Why is it so hard for a successful business to offer a small discount to our Military Members?

  • How long does it take for your body & breath to relieve itself of Garlic?

    My friend and I were talking the other night and we couldn't help but wonder. They say, "you are what you eat" & the smell of certain foods, even the scent of alcohol can come through your skin. So how long does the process take before you rid yourself of these kind of strong odors.

  • A man whom calls himself a Christian but secretly cheats people & is extremely greedy..?

    So how do you confront such a person? I would like to call him out. Face To Face. And ask him how he can sleep at night. This guy doesn't seem to realize that he is an evil doer.

  • I got hurt at work and my Boss didn't fill out an accident report. Who do I call for help?

    The accident took place last year but I am now having a whole new set of symptoms. My doctors tell me I can no longer do my job. I cannot pay my bills unless I work. The nerve damage is causing me to randomly collape without warning. After this much time has passed since the accident, who can I call for help in advising me? Isn't it against the law for an employer not to submit an accident report to the Workers Comensation?
