    Should I feel ashamed for working at Walmart?

    It's the only job I can get. I have applied to hundreds of jobs and went to so many interviewers and no one else hired me except Walmart who hired me on the spot. I like working here.

    Is it appropriate to ask someone this?

    You’re about to wash dishes in about a half hour. The sink is pretty much filled with dirty dishes (ie silverware, plates, bowls, cups, etc). Someone has an appetite for cereal, so he starts to take a bowl from the cupboard and a spoon from a drawer. When you see him doing that, you ask him to use a paper bowl and a disposable plastic spoon instead, so you’d have less dishes to wash. Would it be appropriate to ask him that?

    Was this rude?

    My coworker was like "Are you shy?" I said yes. She said, "I noticed that. Why?" I said, "I don't know. I'm just like that." She said, "Are you anti social?"

    What would be the appropriate amount to tip on a $135 for good service at a Sushi place? ?

    Some go by what they think they deserve instead of percentage. The amount for $135 at 15 percent is $20.25 Now if this person is paying for themselves shouldn't they pay percentage but when it's a group and one person pays for them all, should it be by what they think they deserve?

    Did my mother ever love me?

    Did she ever love me at all that she would do this to me and abandon me all my life? 

    My first breath was the last of hers. I wish I could say I have celebrated a single Mother's day with her, or have felt, at least once, a mother's love, a mother's touch, a meal cooked by mom, but it will never happen.

    Is this a nosy thing to do?

    Favorite Answer:

    Yes it is.  If the guy with the photo wanted to share it with you, he would have.  Your demand to be included is sticking your nose where it isn't invited.

    Did my coworker cut her hair because of me?

    I used to talk to her and she would always hug me every time we saw each other. She had long dark curly hair. She would get mad if I gave my attention to someone else and if I did not hug her. Then I stopped talking to her. She cut her hair before to neck length but it was still dark. And then she cut it again, and it is so short like a boy's hair and is shaved and grey.

    Sometimes I glance at her and I remember back when I talked to her, she was always happy and smiling. Now she looks miserable. Did any of this have to do with me? Like she doesn't want to have long hair because it was a reminder of when I used to talk to her?

    Why are Hispanic people so good at everything?

    I've talked to them and asked them if they knew how to do things, like cleaning the house, the bath tub, the refrigerator, laundry, etc and they know how to do everything. They know how to work and talk to people. They are hard working.

    How come they know how to do those things and I don't and I am even older than them? Were they forced to mature at a young age?

    Was I rude to my acquaintance?

    Favorite Answer:

    Nope.  You answered his question that you didn't feel like answering questions appropriately.  

    Maybe ... just maybe ... you could have apologized that you weren't in the mood or had time that day, considering you have before, but because he was asking it of you, an apology wasn't required.

    How to deal with roommate who won’t abide by the rules of the house?

    I live in a townhouse owned by my university. (So we don’t have a landlord or an RA). I live with two other girls who don’t clean at all. One of them will help with the household chores, but she’ll let things pile up for days before cleaning anything. The other one just doesn’t do anything. So we al sat down and came to agreement on a chore chart. One person does the dishes and takes out the trash for a whole week, then the other person does the same, and so on. I don’t have a problem wi  try the first girl, but the second girl... whenever it’s her turn to do the dishes/take out the trash, she’ll let the dishes/trash pile up until the last day of her assigned week to do chores. So we change weeks every Saturday. This week, it’s my turn to do the dishes/take out the trash. However, the girl left a huge pile of dishes in the sink (and didn’t empty out the dishwasher either) from two days ago. Even though it’s my turn this week, I feel like she should do the dishes since she didn’t do them during her week. So how do I talk to her about this?
