I'm not sure I believe the story.  It just seems off to me.

I went everywhere before DD was born so I could see being in a theatre.  I personally wouldn't have asked for a refund, I just wouldn't be bothered by the $20 loss.  If my water broke I would have or DH would have offered to clean it up.  For most people, water breaking doesn't not mean going to the hospital immediately.  My water broke at home and I stayed home for about 5-6 hours after until contractions were stronger. I was able to shower, etc. as well.

That said, I worked at a theatre for years, I would have given the refund just for business image.  It is bad for business if customers have negative stories.

That's really horrible.  Just plain awful.

That lever of racism isn't even NSFW... it's Not Safe For Mealtime.

Here's one from notalwaysrelated.com that shows how standing up to a special snowflake can have fantastic consequences  ;D

Maybe you can plant some tall, leafy bushes along the side of your house this summer.
Actually we are across the street from each other. But we had a conversation. It turned out well


Neighbor - Um Did I storm over here and yell at you a couple of days ago


Me - yes


Neighbor Sorry about that - sometimes if I'm jolted awake I don't fully wake up and I sort of sleep walk. I wasn't sure if I had or if I had just had a dream I did.


Me- Laughing we might be related (I have a long history of bizarre conversations after being started out of sleep. At least one time involved me leaving the house coming back and not realizing it till a neighbor said something.)


Further conversation revealed she thought I was playing very loud music before I left. That is a different car and they leave a couple minutes before me. She is going try a fan or white noise machine.

Ah!  A reasonable person, after all!  What a good outcome.

Talk about control freak.  If the happy couple is paying, no one has a say until invited to do so.

It sounds like they are doing a *great* job of setting boundaries and holding to them, though.  I bet that sister won't take any guff when she has little ones, and won't hesitate to deny privileges to her mom (if the mom even gets any to begin with) to make sure the mom follows her rules for the baby.  She's also setting a great example for her sister, the OP, in how to manage things, and that the world will NOT come to an end if the mom throws a fit.  Good for her!

The most amazing part, to me, is that this idiot apparently thought everyone in the world would be on her side when the video hit the web. The Dunkin Donuts worker may - or may not, let's be honest - have forgotten to give her her receipt, which gives her a minor but legitimate gripe. But in her mind it justified a vile, racist rant and she honestly thought she'd be the hero of the recording. Who thinks like that?

RE: Dunkin' Idiot

How does not getting a receipt entitle you to ANYTHING but a warm fuzzy feeling that you saved paper?

Common sense: so rare it's officially classed as a super-power.
