Time For a Coffee Break! / Re: Blackhead/Whitehead Removal Tools?
« Last post by PastryGoddess on Yesterday at 03:22:00 PM »
I'm really just looking for tool recommendations.  For a number of reasons, including severe skin allergies, I'm not willing to give creams and masks a try due to past experiences.

You can get a comedone extractor from Amazon.  You can pick one up at your local pharmacy or big box store as well.  It's not really about the brand name, but more about making sure you're using it properly.

There are many videos on youtube showing how to use one correctly.

Honestly, I could understand her outsourcing some items due to limited kitchen equipment, but to be defensive when called on it is extremely unprofessional.

Also, you have requirements to be able to list ingredients and possible allergens to your customers, and I am not sure she could do that with either the Popeye's chicken or the gumbo she buys from someone.

She further admits they don't make the jam they call house made, they don't make the biscuits that are listed as house made, and they don't make any of the pastries or desserts. Wow.

So she's less of a cook and more of an aggregator?

I use a clay-based face mask. Just a little bit on the zit or blackhead before bed and they're usually dried up by morning.

I suffer from severe migraines so have been doing this for a bit.

For those who know I use, "I'm sorry. I need to slip out now. Bye." And go. Anyone trying to talk more gets, "This is the best way to handle it. Talk to you later."

For those who don't know I warn them a head of time that I might need to leave quickly due to my health and if I do that I will say goodbye and then slip out. When the time comes, I use, "I'm not feeling well. I need to leave now. Thank you for understanding." and something about how I enjoyed my time.

When I am at home and need to take a break from the get-together, I use, "I'm going to slip out for a few minutes. I'll be back in a bit." or if I am done, I use, "I have enjoyed this but my body says I need to stop. I'm going to give you your goodbye hug now and disappear. I'm so glad you came."

It was so hard at first since I felt the pressure to stay from my own head's social rules and well meaning people who kept talking or questioned whether what I was doing was best. I learned to do what I needed to do which was make an advanced reminder that I might need to leave, say goodbye when I needed to, and leave.
Once I got myself in a pattern, I noticed that those I spend the most time have fit themselves to it. They don't question me and they let me go quickly.

A California restaurant passed off a chain restaurant's fried chicken as their own. The owner insists she's not "reselling" the chicken, she's just using it as an ingredient  ::)

She couldn't have been making any money off the chicken...what an idiot

Did you see how much she's charging for it? If memory serves, that was $12.50 for chicken & waffles - if she's actually making the waffles in-house (even if she uses a mix), she's making money. If I'm paying that much, though, I expect that chicken was house-made, and fried to order, and the waffles scratch-made as well. If she's serving Popeye's chicken, I wouldn't even bank on those waffles not being Eggo.

Don't assume your parrot's $120/mo liquid medicine bottle is tightly shut before turning it upside down to draw the syringe.

Pardon me while I go cry now.

Along these lines - when drawing up your cat's prednisolone, turn the bottle back over before you remove the syringe...

I live in LA.  There's alot of self-important "snowflakes" here.  A couple of little things they do really drive me up the wall.

1) Your pretty fluffy bunny rat dog is NOT a service dog.  Don't leave her in a hot car, but don't bring her into the supermarket or restaurant either.  Some people are allergic and I know darned well it's against Health Department regulations.  It says so right on the door on the sign you decided to ignore so you didn't have to go three blocks out of your way to bring Fifi Snuggles home before going to the store.

2) Bike lanes.  Well, not the bike lanes themselves.  But the cyclists who decide they don't have to use them, they can drive their bikes the wrong way up the street, against traffic lights, in the middle of the road, on the sidewalk...in short anywhere the whim takes them, because the laws of the road are for the rest of us...and if they get hit while doing any of these things...it must be the motorists' fault, because of course, we all have to make way for them.

I know these are both "1st World Problems," but, they bug me just the same.

I suppose, if one was feeling a bit peckish, one could say think, "Well, if doing freebie thing means more customers for me who are just like you and expect just what you are asking, then that that seems to me a very good way to ensure I go out of business and file bankruptcy."

But of course nice people wouldn't think that.    >:D
