Are you really that dense? I voiced my opinion, unlike you who expressed your view as fact.
please grow up, or hold your tongue.

You think your fiance might be cheating.
Radio show will call them up and and offer, for free, a $500 couples spa package.
Couples massage followed by 1 hour of alone time in the room.
Just need to book right now. Ask for when you want to come in and guest's name to put in the system.
Does he give fiancee's name or some hoochie mama?
So this woman is concerned cause her fiance is meeting a recruiter after work at a bar. Recruiter's hot. They call and offer him the deal. He give's his fiancee's name as the person he's bringing. So she gets on the air to say he's on the radio, and they hash it out.
I felt like slapping he hosts(who I normally love) cause they were trying to read into everything to find dirt that wasn't there. The dude is trying to get a new job. Meets recruiter after work. HE chooses to go to a bar cause he does not want to meet in a coffee shop. Woud rather have a beer after work. Fiance feels like that is too close to a date. One of the hosts is saying crap like meeting in a bar is not very professional, then goes on to recognize that lots of people meet in bars to discuss business, thus invalidating her non professional assessment. And he's like wtf. Have I ever given you a reason to not trust me? During the discussion where everyone is talking over each other, he's asking for how he's supposed to proceed. Can't meet her at my job when I'm trying to find a new one? He's asking for suggestions and her first one is that she just wishes he didn't have to do business with her. And rightfully so, he's like WTF?!? So I should only ever do business with men or ugly women...and then the hosts jump on him for getting defensive. I'm like wtf, it was a stupid request. Then she's like I just feel like you could find time to do it some other time and place so its not like a date. Basically meaning using up his lunch time or taking time off from work during the day just cause she's too insecure about the time/place.
They were talking all talking over each other so no one caught or questioned 2 other things she said.
1) Why aren't you friends with her on Facebook? WTF? Why would he be FB friends with his recruiter?
2) There are plenty of rentable office spaces...So she expects him to RENT AN OFFICE to meet her.

I'm friends on facebook with a female recruiter, who I met in person. I don't post much on there. Usually pics of the kids or family and check in here or there.

The wedding would be off if I were that guy. 1. She's insecure, like bat shyte crazy insecure. 2. She tried to embarrass him on a radio show. Your number one bestest side kick shouldn't be out to get you or make you look bad in one of the most publicly ways possible. It would probably be really hard to break up with a girl once you'd gotten that far along with her that you proposed, but she'd have to be so gone.

I bet she's also one of those people on facebook who everyone can't stand ... the type who's always bringing what should be private arguments and disputes up.

MY definition of a "thug" is someone who commits violence to others, and steals, loots, and riots

Me neither, and I can't believe I didn't think of that! Share a coke with the Captain doesn't have the same ring.

Not for nothing folks, but please at least try to act like you know how the justice system works.
The DA decides on what charges to press, and the jury decides the guilt or innocence of the person on each of those charges.
Now, how the DA determines which charges to file is the really icky part, dealing with race,wealth, politics, and occasionally the facts.
It is called prosecutorial discretion.

Carry on.

he bought a plane ticket. That gives him a seat on the plane. That seat is designed to recline for the comfort if the passenger paying for it. However far back the seat reclines is his space. You are free to use that space when he is not reclined, but he need not ask your permission to use his space.
Additionally, I meant to ask you to elaborate on your incident yesterday. You claim that his seat knocked your laptop off the table and it came crashing down on your knees. I can't picture it. If your tray table is down, your knees are under it. The worst I could see happening is the laptops slides off onto your midsection since even your lap would be under the tray table.
The seat hit my knees, not the laptop.

And I reserve the right to have a sudden sneezing fit on his head. He may have a right to recline, but it doesn't make it less rude. I can see doing it on a long (2.5+ flight), but not for a quick one.

like I said, if you have a problem with the person in front of you reclining, you need to ask them not to. He should not have to ask permission. He's not being ride at all. He's using a comfort feature that's part of his seat

Unless asked not to, I recline the moment I am allowed to. Granted, i don't fly often, but in 42 years, I have only ever had ONE person ask me not to and I've never even considered asking the person in front of me not to.

It's really simple. If the airlines didn't want people to be able to recline their seats, they wouldn't give people the option. If you are unusually large and way bigger than the normal person, it's not the person's job in front of you to subsidize your comfort at the cost of theirs ... just so you don't have to pony up money for a seat with more leg room.

It's all about who should have to deal with the inconvenience that comes with being abnormally tall. Should the person who has the condition have to deal with it or should other people have to deal with it.

These people who whine about it are cut from the same cloth as people who are hypersensitive to smells and cologne and who feel that their problem is actually not theirs at all, but really the problem of everyone else, who should be expected to live their lives as if the person with the hypersensitivity is the center of the universe.

Ever email your significant other with some very specific questions that you need answered and they respond to your email to tell you all about something else...but don't address you questions at all?
