I bet, with girls, it's more the social and hormonal stuff. My parents tell a story of how we were all having dinner one night and my dad said something in conversation and I burst into tears, stormed from the table and ran to my room and he had NO IDEA what happened.

I dread my daughter's teen years...

I never said their aren't issues and challenges of both. It's a comparison. My sister who has 3 girls and 1 boy would disagree. My mom would disagree too. They have both told me and my wife this. Many folks have made comments to me about how much more difficult boys are. I wonder how many people make such comments out of the blue to folks with all girls. Boys are much more active when they are young.

Yeah, I think the teenage years are when they decided that the boys were easier.

My mom once said to me that she always knew when my brothers were lying, even if she didn't know what about. With me, she just couldn't believe a thing I said. I wasn't a bad kid, but I was sneaky. Lots of teenage girls are.

Who are "they"? I must have missed a link or a convo somewhere. That's nutty thinking.
It refers to another thread that probably started as part of an Search Engine Optimization (SEO) effort but has degenerated into some very nasty trolling amgst a group which has been particularly bad.

I agree! I can totally see an argument being made that boys are harder when they are younger and girls are harder when they are older.

Why would Aldi be anything like Whole Fodds? Aren't they 2 totally different kinds of stores?
It wouldn't. The people in that forum are the downtrodden and disenfranchised martyrs who expect more than they are willing to pay for.

Will you knock it off. People can post wherever and as whomever they like. It's a public forum, and anonymous at that. Quit acting like our goddam kindergarten teacher. Screw Aldis, you gotta bring your own bags and pay to use the shopping carts, they're only hurting themselves, there's plenty of more convenient competition out there. I haven't shopped at an Aldis in years, and don't plan to anytime in the future.

The risk is getting flamed and followed around by trolls.That's the friendly heads up.

What you say and how you say it is your own, Sam's own business, anyone's own business.

You are free to ignore anything anyone says around here. If I want to be a g-d kindergarten teacher , hoochie mama, or roaring beyotch, its my problem. Not yours. Bug off.

You don't pay for a cart - you do get your quarter back, you know! And I just keep a bag of bags in my car.

And she's just trying to point out in an effort to be helpful, not to be a "kindergarten teacher". People can becaome strange and trollish sometimes.

Geez, dog. Soft bite!

WHat's the saying?

You can have something cheap and fast, cheap and good, fast and good, or fast and cheap, but you can't have all three.

i heard someone (perhaps a comedian) say that boys are easier because parents only have to worry about one pen!s, whereas parents of girls have to worry about every single pen!s in town...

Uh huh. And I remember why Ang became Red.
Sam may eat nails for breakfast. I can't say, but the trolls and stalkers have been pretty tame since she has started coming around and that Aldi's thread has some very hard core people

Oh no! Can't have raging trolls following us around! God forbid we'd have to IGNORE their posts!(See, it works both ways.) I'll "bug off" when I dam well feel like it and there's NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!! Bwahahaha!!

Last time I tried to use it, it swallowed my first couple of quarters and never gave them back to me anyway! And I usually run to the store on a whim when I get off work, I don't normally have the presence of mind to take a handful of quarters and a bag full of bags just because I crave some potato chips and ice cream! Thanks, Aldis! Way to turn a random run to the store into a chore requiring precognitive planning! Screw you!
