I took part in this conversation yesterday:

Idiot traveller: Why won't the ticket machine accept my reservation code for my flight to Detroit? Why doesn't your computer ever work?

Long-suffering airline agent: Because your reservation leaves Dulles. You're at Reagan International.


Unfortunately, I was the first speaker  :-[.

Well, that last sentence was a big surprise! Ummm... so did you eventually get there?

Yes. Fortunately the two airports are about 20 minutes cab ride apart.

The Ride of Shame, I'd call it.

Well, 20 minutes assuming traffic cooperates.


Since when does Reagan have international flights?

Totally agree with bah12. Some people understand "pets" are family, some have no idea.

Don't react.  Just know that those are not the people you can turn to in these situations.

Life...in general / Dog....Manners?
« Last post by January Girl on Yesterday at 01:38:28 PM »
My sweet old gal will be 14 in October. She's a mutt and outside of the regular check ups, teeth cleanings and rare ear infections she's been quite healthy. I've been blessed. I'm also one of those people that animals are family. I'm her mommy and she's my baby girl.

Recently, I came home to several messes in my house. Something was amiss and an emergency Vet visit was in order. After lots of tears (and one large mommy freak out) it was determined to be  UTI. Thank goodness.

What I don't get is when I reached out a few dog parents and non dog parents, a few non dog parents reacted...harshly. Like welp. Time to put her down. Everyone, I mean EVERYONE knows this dog is my baby. I feel like if they reached out to me and said my old (relative, friend, whoever) has an illness and I need good vibes. I would never say well, time to pull the plug!

How do I react to such harsh responses?

I caught so many Geodude, Onix, Slugma, Omanyte, Vulpix, Kabuto, and my first Shuckle. I really enjoyed this event.

I was able to evolve Kabutops and Golem.

Same.  I was also able to catch enough Slugmas to get a Magcargo

How about something in between both length and pattern of the two above.

I think this one is a nice in between:

Dating / Re: Man sues date for texting during a trip to the cinema
« Last post by Another Sarah on Yesterday at 01:23:44 PM »
I think they were the perfect match.  He's nuts and she's particularly rude.  Texting in a theater is rude and in one that specifically prohibits it is just over the top.  If the date is that bad, then one text and say excuse me, I have to leave is all it takes.  To say that when he asked her to put away her phone she suddenly felt unsafe and had to remove herself from the situation is way over the top.  Suing your date over leaving early...what else can you say.
I strongly suspect someone off enough to attempt to sue over a rubbish date would be the kind of person who could make you feel incredibly uncomfortable within a couple of hours, let alone how he may have gone  about asking her not to text. He doesn't strike me as the "excuse me, would you be so kind..." type.
Texting in a cinema is rude, no doubt, but it's hardly at the level of suing your date![/b] It's not even at the level of being rude to the waiter, she was thoughtlessly, not deliberately, discourteous.

I think with the kind of event that it is, you have a pretty wide latitude to choose your outfit. Both dresses you posted would be perfectly appropriate. Undoubtedly there will be people less formally dressed than that, and more formally dressed. The middle of the pack is a good place to be, apparel-wise.

"Yes, ma'aam."

"I'll get right on it."

"I'll have this done by ___"

But add me to the list of people who think that this is an eye-roll-worthy waste of time.
