re: Preppy toddler clothes - Benne Wafer
Some people really do. My kid has been at a private preschool since she was an infant and there is a family that sends their kids in every day dressed like that. The girl is always in a smocked pillowcase type dress with a huge hair bow and her brother is in those toddler john johns. Everything they...

re: Garage sale finds Saturday 5/8 - not a great day - Benne Wafer
[img]https://i.imgur.com/VOw35po.jpg[/img] Vintage Trifari is a good thing to look out for. Looks like one of these necklaces sold recently for $72 but too bad the matching earrings weren't there. Necklace/earring sets could go as high as $300+. What are the other earrings? I'm guessing the gree...

re: Teacher sounds off on school board’s $5 million dollars cubicles in classrooms - Benne Wafer
If I wanted it clean, yes, I had to clean my own office. We had a cleaning crew but all they did was empty the trash and half arse vaccuum. Once a year they washed the windows and sills. We also rented conference rooms and did corporate trainings for other companies and if we weren't busy at set up o...

re: What’s the lowest salary a young person would need to launch their adult life? - Benne Wafer
That was my starting pay years ago with lower rent, no car payment, no vacations, and very low key going out. It was very tight back then but doable. I don't think I could have swung a car payment though without a roommate. ...

re: Have any OTers had to deal with a biting child? - Benne Wafer
My youngest was a biter when she was two, it seemed like I was signing an acknowledgment form every other day. My oldest was in a daycare that would kick a kid out of the program for bitting too many times so I was terrified that was going to happen to my youngest. When I asked the teacher how many ...

re: Biological fathers should have zero rights or responsibilities - Benne Wafer
Men have control until their sperm is released at which point they are at the mercy of biology and if conception occurs, the mother. Assume EVERY sexual encounter will result in conception and if you are not ready or want that, wrap it up (which still has a [very small] rate of failure) or don't pen...

re: What is a nice stroller? Maneuvers well, storage space, etc... - Benne Wafer

re: Is anyone here actually in favor of squatter’s rights? - Benne Wafer
I don't agree with it and support the property owner's right to remove them but have some compassion for those doing it as a temporary measure for survival. Now the people who consider themselves sovereign citizens who squat in empty million dollar homes while attempting to steal them by filing ...

re: “Crafty” presents aren’t presents. It’s cheap crap and you’re trying to save a buck. - Benne Wafer
I'm a crafter and one thing I notice among other crafters is that they will give their handiwork as gifts because it is about THEM, not the gift recipient. They want people to fall all over the amazing thing they made. Or they found something that they do well/easy to make/inexpensive so they give i...

[quote]Often it’s a third party that handles the data and generates a generalized statistical report to the employer. [/quote] This.

I'm 42 and let's just say I didn't own any sort of medical brace a year ago... I now own six. :lol: Don't feel like healing is any slower but the injuries are much easier now. Stretching and strength training core muscles make a big difference. ...
