It's listed at the top of the page: News:[IT'S THE 2ND ANNUAL GUATEMALA LIBRARY PROJECT BOOK DRIVE!    LOOKING FOR DONATIONS OF SCIENCE BOOKS THIS YEAR.    Check it out in the "Extending the Hand of Kindness" folder


The OP probably didn't remember which folder to use to ask about it.

Wasn't this something the Ehelldame was organizing?  I doubt it would get locked.

OP, are you in the U.K.? I thought it was traditional in the U.K. for the bride to purchase the dresses for the bridesmaids.

How is the book drive going?  I'd like to hear an update if possible on such a worthwhile project.

How is this etiquette related? You might want to move this thread to the Coffee Break folder before it gets locked.

Hi all, thanks for the feedback, it's a lot to think about.

Also I kinda think you were out of line saying she couldn't bring her bf to your engagement party. Unless he is very new. Significant others are usually invited and how many times your DF has met the family is irrelevent to if your bridesmaids should be allowed to bring boyfriends.

I didn't say she couldn't, my mom did. He was never invited, it was a family only party which my mother and aunt(not her mom) organised and paid for. They put it on so my grandmother(who is too old to travel) could be a part of the wedding celebrations. My cousin announced she was bringing him to the party so he could meet the family. My family viewed it as her trying to upstage us, our visit was for them to get to know my DF, who they see as becoming a part of the family.

Why can't all the bridesmaids order thru cousin's chosen website to save $30?  The way you describe it sounds like the discount you're getting at your shop isn't as good as what cousin's website is selling at.


The savings my cousin can get only applies to the USA, which would work for one other girl. The other 3 are in the UK and Hong Kong, so the cost to order and ship would be greater than ordering through the shop and I post it to them. I felt ordering from the shop was the best option and my mom was going to take the dresses back to the USA for my cousin and other friend when she came to visit. I did ask the girls if they liked the dress and when I went to look for them, I tried to look for one they could wear again. I actually picked one of the convertible ones where you can change the top based on what looks good/what you'd like. I did run by the cost of the dresses with the girls, none of whom had an issue. All the girls actually make alot more money than I do, except for my MOH. My MOH went with me and we tried to find a dress that wasn't too expensive.

For now, I'm just going to leave it and I'm looking at alternatives for the other girls. I do agree that yes, I am regretting asking her. I suppose a large part of it is I know the history, which I don't want to get into because it's not 100% relevant to this, other than yes, it does colour my perception of alot of what she does.

My friend would write the following for her orange cat named Leah:

Dear Leah,

Why the sudden fascination to do a #1 in the bathtub while I do my #1 in the toilet especially in the morning.  I am glad you don't do #2 in the tub.  Perhaps I should look up stuff and teach you how to do #1 in the toilet LOL

Love from your human slave "C"

DH has a phone number that is for immediate family only, we never use it at any other time.

It has been ringing this week, and he finally got a voicemail, and it was from someone asking about a 2013 pickup for sale.

We don't have anything for sale and never use that number.

That might be a wrong number in the ad or they might've dialed wrong, though. Some car dealership goofed up and used our hotel's 800-number in their ads and emails. I was very perplexed by the sudden rash of calls to the dealership I got until someone said "but this is the number in their email!"  Yes, I said, but they put down our hotel's by accident.

The company I work for gets people calling us for help with a product we don't even sell.  We found out that the service offering misprinted the support phone # for help on their product box which is for my company's customers.  We have to give out the correct number at least a few times a week.   Some people have gotten angry with us when we explained the misprint and then after going back & forth they finally take the correct number to call.

Years ago my family went on a vacation with another family, we were in the same hotel - different rooms.  We went to the beach together, or the hotel pool, ate some meals together but not all.  I thought that the 4 days went really well and had a terrific time.  So a month or so later asked them if they wanted to reserve rooms, rent a beach house, or make plans for the next summer and they said no.  They already had plans with other friends.  Ok, not a big deal but disappointing for us.

What I felt was extremely rude was that the other friends were acquaintances of ours and when we would be at a party, or a school function or even out for a walk in the park the vacation plans would always be brought up and discussed in detail down to the last grain of sand.  When it got to the point of my wondering how any conversation would lead to "oh - and speaking of school lunches ......  on our vacation we lunched at the Crab Shack every day!"  I decided that it wasn't my imagination, this was being done by grown women on purpose or with total lack of insight.  It didn't matter, but what did was that I was uncomfortable and felt excluded.

Norad tracks Santa started when a Sears ad accidentally put the Norad super top secret emergency phone number in its call Santa ad instead of the correct 1 number off Sears number.
