I agree that kids shouldn't have to do anything different based on a "maybe." I meant that the accommodations should start when a kid with a severe allergy actually enrolls.
I think I've mentioned my cousin before, with tons of self-diagnosed issues for both herself and her son. Well, now he is starting kindergarten and she is having lots of problems with the school because they are refusing to make special accommodations (like banning everyone from bringing PB sandwiches) without something from the kid's doctor. PB is a fairly cheap, nutritious choice for lunch and it could possibly make an impact on people's budgets if they are forced to find a replacement. I'm fine with that if it is legit, but don't see why others should have to make changes like that just to satisfy her constant need for attention.

Banning something that has a lightning strike chance of hurting someone is far more than cautious. Now, don't ge tme wrong, if there were definitely a kid with a severe allergy at school, for instance, I'd be on board with that. But a blanket rule for an off chance of something happening?

OMFG. I just got this email:

So it’s the longest story ever but one of the guys we got a bid from for the backyard (patio, reshaping, sidewalk, etc.) apparently just showed up at our house with his crew yesterday and destroyed our backyard, including the sidewalk and everything! We haven’t talked to the guy in like three weeks and the last time we did we told him that we would keep him posted on our plans, that we weren’t sure we were even going to do it at all (or with him). our yard is destroyed. We came home to two bobcats and I almost fell over. It is so sad. No more grass back there, no more anything. Ugh. It was a night of dave and I taking turn being angry and then being a cheerleader. Haha. anyway, dave is home today dealing with “frank.”

***

I told her to sue his sorry a$$ for every penny they can get, then hire someone else to fix the mess he made.

Two examples. Out of three hundred million people? Allergies THAT severe are extremely rare. Not common enough for the rest of the world to alter their eating habits.
And one word: Darwinism.
I have two words for you: F*ck you

It is my child and husband you are speaking about and I don't think taking a few simple precautions is too much to ask.

I think it's STUPID to tell an entire school they can't have pb&j sandwiches in their lunches because a kid MIGHT be allergic. Now, if there's a kid in school who has a serious allergy that is so bad, he can't be in the same room with a pb&J sandwich, then fine, make a rule.

But until then, no school has any business banning them just to be "safe." It's on the parents of the allergic kid to make the school aware.

Now go away. YOu're not wanted here if you're just going to be such an idiot.

You obviously can't read because most of us have said that we agree that precautions should be taken if a kid has a known allergy but that blanket rules shouldn't be arbitrarily made for the heck of it. Clearly, I am not the moron here.

It's too bad this fktard stumbled onto our group. He made himself unwelcome immediately. And he continues to prove that our assessment was correct.

Reading comprehension isn't their strong suit, that's for sure.

They aren't wanted anywhere. It's a sock. It comes here and plays games to build a post count hoping we won't realize it's a sock but since they lack self control they can't help making premature comments. If you want to see where it goes after adding absolutely no valuable input to your threads I will gladly share.

And today I couldn't withdraw any money with my ATM card! Kept saying I exceeded my limit. Having not withdrawn anything for about two weeks, I call the bank almost frantic that my account has been hacked! They said it was an issue on THEIR end. I feel better, but yeah, what's all this about lately?

Don't get me wrong -- getting new people in here would be GREAT. THe more the merrier. BUt only so long as the new people are actually, well, merry. At least to some degree.

There's an unwritten protocol for joining already established groups on the internet (says someone who's been online for 18-19 years now). You lay low, stay neutral, get a feel for the vibe and the personalities. But this guy just came out swinging (starting with Race) and hasn't let up.
