Parents had quints....check out these names.
In keeping with family tradition, the babies' names all start with the letter "D." Deniko, Dariz, Deonee, Daician and Daiten each weigh less than 3 pounds and were being cared for in the neonatal intensive care unit.
Geez ....would love to see their teachers' faces when they go to school. Can't even tell genders.
When they have to spell every one of those names out at school registrations and the doctor's office they might regret it.

Heck, the Iowa couple who had a toddler when they got pregnant with SEVEN babies, shortly afterward, the mom said she wasn't opposed to having one more, so the toddler would have a sibling who WASN'T one of the septuplets. Dad ixnayed that right away in that interview. Shut it DOWN.

Ladies, your uterus isn't a clown car.

Crazy. And no fertility drugs! I can't imagine it. Twins would be difficult. Quints? Shoot me.

Jeez. Yeah, you've already not done that kid any favors. Throwing more babies into it is not the answer.

Bought up every bottle i could to last me the year.

I agree. Shoot me. And the mom of the septuplets in Iowa took only the most minimal amount of help she absolutely needed. By all accounts, she's extremely organized, type A, and a total control nut. You'd kind of have to be in order to keep things under control in a household with eight kids under 3!

Ha, yeah. I need to develop a drinking game. Chug anytime:
--somebody says "man cave"
--somebody complains about not having granite or stainless steel in the kitchen
--somebody complains about the paint color
--when being shown the enormous master closet, the wife is like "Where are you going to put your clothes, honey?"
--"open concept" is mentioned
--the realtor shows them a house that's 50K over their max budget
Love it. I'm going to send this to myself in an email so I have it handy at home.

Oh, so true. Drives me nuts. My favorite outburst is "f@#king idiots." I mostly watch HH Intl. Americans whine that there is no open concept or rooms are small, which is the way it is in Europe, especially on a small budget in dollars. Euros would seem like less.
And they always prioritize entertaining in both shows.
There are lots of houses around here about 1000 sq.ft. that people have raised 5 or 6 kids in and they turned out ok.
They must tell them to complain about most everything. They're my favorite "yell at the tv" shows.
One HH went into an unfinished and kind of scary basement (sort of like mine) and carried on saying she couldn't go down there and do laundry.
I could'nt believe my dad likes that show....Wife and i love the one's with the 26 year old couple...with a budget of $1.5 million...lol.....Saw one in Europe, where the bathroom was on the roof....

wow. I do know a few people who need handicapped parking but don't seem to need it on the surface. While I HATE people who use the spots when they shouldn't, I"d not confront someone over it.
I have. Mom on her cell with baby in hand and I had to stop and ask her what her handicap was (she did have a decal though). She blubbered about saying nothing and I casually stated she hadn't answered my question. She confessed in a hurry it was her mom's but she was only running into Best Buy "for a minute."
Later in the store (much more than a minute), she passes me by and literally screams, "I'm leaving now!" I scream back, "The real handicapped people thank you."

I would've given her leeway if she had looked/acted even a bit remoresful but hey---socipaths walk among us, as many as 1 out of every 25 people who feel no guilt over their actions.

I would never destroy property though. I like to push in side mirrors. That's my vigilante justice. I feel better and I didnt destroy anything.

<quoted text>Cider is not an ale. It has a very different taste spectrum running from apple juice left too long in the back of teh fridge to ones that come very close to a crisp dry white wine where you wouldn't know an apple was involved.
There is no grain used in cider.
her post immediately followed a post that mentioned both woodchuck and redd's.

Woodchuck is cider.
Redd's is an apple flavored ale

Speaking of side mirrors, when Chris was 2 and I was 26 I had one, for me. Someone who thought I didn't "look disabled" thought it was amusing (or justice) to break one of my side mirrors. It's better now, but people still look at me sideways because it's not obvious...no wheel chair, apparently. I refuse to answer anyone's questions if they demand an answer.

My opinion is that unless proven otherwise I have every right to use it to park wherever I like for as long as I like. If someone doubts my veracity, call a damn cop. I have a card in my wallet with my name that matches the placard number. I have been asked for it twice leaving a city parking lot. Not so much any other time, and those were both official city employees doing their job. If you park in a city lot there is no fee.

I don't care what anyone thinks. I have more issues than I want to think about it. My entire team of doctors (I have six specialists that keep me alive) thinks I need this, the state agrees with me. Who the FU(K does any person who doesn't know me AT ALL think they are to demand proof? Call a cop. I'll wait.

Not directed at you personally, but when someone has asked me what my disability is (are, they are multiple) my response has always been some version of GFY my medical information is private. OTOH I know someone who uses her mom's thing like the person you are describing. Or at least did. I haven't seen her in 15 years, but I have no reason to think she would have stopped on her own.
