Unfortunately we need those people to be on the job. They also get compensated better than the average cashier/retail clerk.

If I was working in a hospital I would be glad to try and make the patients holiday a little better which (IMO) is better than ringing up more crap that will be forgotten the day after Christmas.

People are free to shop away Thanksgiving and spend their money any way they choose, but the average retail worker isn't always being given the choice to give up all or part of their holiday.

My daughter has a combination of OCD, Toutette's and dyslexia. So yes, she was a challenge bringing up, but I love her dearly (as I do her older sister) and she is rapidly becoming a best friend. Just mentioning those challenges did not translate into hatred (bitching) for motherhood or my kids.
People on here use OCD as an insult, but the reality is that it's an anxiety disorder, not exactly what is depicted on TV shows.
I'm sincerely glad for your granddaughter because I think having passion for something is important for adding quality to our lives.
People learn about Tourette's the way they *learn* about many things...through TV shows. Tourette's is not always that obvious and diagnosing it can be challenging. Many parents, because of misconceptions perpetrated by TV, miss the actual signs.
Like in anything else, accurate information is very key.
Yes we have OCD issues too. As she gets older, she deals with it better. Good luck to you.

What's hysterical is her saying that people have to go outside the country to adopt. That's ridiculous.

There is a long waiting list of couples wishing to adopt these babies.

Keep up.

Why can't folks use their common sense and realize that some professions are required to be covered 24/7 for emergencies but getting a deal on a TV isn't. Why not do your big sales some other day and close the stores. I bet they wouldn't loose a dollar in the long run.

IMO the faith-based "traditional marriage" arrangement DOES pressure women into having children, sASSy, and it also places the husband in the position of being the woman's BOSS. Why any woman would want to be part of such a marriage is beyond me, and thank goodness I have the ability to REJECT it.
You're just pissed that I criticize "traditional marriage" by saying I think it's a bad deal for women instead of praising it to make YOU happy. Too bad. You obviously don't "get it" either; I'm not interested in making you happy. Maybe you'll figure it out this time.
What exactly do you mean by faith-based trsditional marriage? Is there such a thing? Is it that you get married only to have children? I got married because I couldn't stay away from a hot husband.

Not every young couple wants to jump right in and be the parents of a teen. From experience, that takes some getting used to. Not all the children that you are talking about are adoptable. Most are entangled in the courts. If you want to adopt a really young child, many times you do have to leave the country. All the really young American babies are dead before birth.

"As I said both of them had good interactions with my children especially my youngest. They even took her into the city to see the Nutcracker at Christmas."
Oh, so now, suddenly, it's BOTH of them who "borrowed" your child? So, why didn't you mention that she ALSO would have been a good parent, like you did the hubby?
And while we're at it, you said you didn't know what the husband thought, yet not knowing you STILL let a potential "baby murderer" take your child out. AND, apparently, the ACTUAL "baby murderer" we now know.
What kind of insane, neglectful, parent allows someone they think murdered her own babies to spend time with their child? None.
And you'll notice Sassy hasn't answered that question yet, of whether or not SHE would. You know why, Ink? Because she wouldn't.
Would you let Susan Smith, provided she got out of jail, take your child places just because the two of you had "interests" together, and she "interacted well" with the child? Of course not.
Put the shovel DOWN, Ink.
I trusted that they wouldn't murder mine. They seemed to like her.

She made her choices which she has a right to do but I would personally say that she was wrong and shortchanged her life. How sad to not be able to sacrafice any part of your life for a greater good. She had more to offer than she did and that's a shame. I think of her once in a while and wonder if she has any regrets now. I wouldn't be surprised if she does. Having no family when you're older can be depressing.

Oh, what melodramatic crap.

Oh, yeah, the truth refutes your arguments, that's why.

Makes one wonder why she wanted to find out the sex of her "useless wad of cells" or to feel that "useless wad of cells" kick and move.
Psst...I bet she even PROUDLY displayed an ultra-sound picture of that "useless wad of cells" on her fridge.
What a PROUD Grandma. I am sure that she just lovesssss and spoils that former "useless wad of cells".

Right. Sure. I still call bull on the whole story.

I'm sure Susan Smith "seemed" to like her children too, just before she killed them. You never answered the question, would you let her take off with YOUR child just because you "shared interests", and she "seemed to like her"?

You keep contradicting yourself, you know, going back and forth between sympathy for her and lack thereof. And by going back and forth between implying that you didn't know her that well, yet trusting her with your child. IOW, a tall tale, told to bolster a an argument, and then elaborated on so much that it's falseness became clear.

Put the shovel down.

Yes, THAT is what she said. YOU dishonestly left off the keywords there "in conversational usage".

I have never claimed that they can't be synonymous, but that they aren't always.

You keep telling these lies, but no one is fooled.

I haven't contradicted one thing. Ba ck then women weren't so casual about talking about abortion. It may be dinner table talk for you but not for the people I know.

You are ridiculous and still trying to make this something it isn't. What is wrong with having someone around who has had an abortion?

Take off where? A movie, the theatre, out to lunch? Yes, why not.

Sorry, but you have contradicted yourself, several times.

What wrong with it? I didn't say there was anything wrong with it.

I DID say that no sane parent would allow someone they consider to be an unrepentant "baby murderer" "borrow" their child, especially one they claim they didn't share much of their personal life with, just had "interests together". And I stand by that.
