What a gorgeous woman; smart, poised, outspoken, beautiful, self-aware, sexy, healthy looking, and more. A bonus is her short fingernails.
CBC reports that Wal-Mart is charging more for plus-sized women's clothing, but not plus-sized men's clothing.
While that inequity between the sexes is unreasonable, I have a different take on this issue.
I am a small-sized person. For years I thought it inequitable for me (and other small-sized persons) to subsidise the clothing pricing for larger-sized persons. The cloth and labour components are greater for larger clothing, yet I paid the same price for my smaller clothing.
While I do not applaud Wal-Mart's sex discrimination, I hope to see a wide-spread correction to the injustice that I experience.
over the last 40 years i have had sex with about 5000 different women (2 or 3 a week). some women have been gfs or wives, but most were hookers. i have never been loyal to anyone i went out with - even if the time with that person was a week. i crave variety. i crave strange. i can't stop myself and i don't want to stop. i have yet to be caught even tho there were close calls. in all these yrs only one sti - lucky since i like risky sex.
Now that my partner and I are living in a condo I can definitely relate to the number of complaints about smoking. We are vegan and are in a same sex relationship and in the processing of having a surrogate carry our child. Due to the extra expenses we cannot afford a detached home and live in a condo which we thought we could handle but there are many reasons why this place is not working for us and smoking is one of the worst. We would also prefer if our strata would ban the meat barbecues as we feel that these are generally unhealthy and the fumes are toxic. We do not smoke or drink and we have a church we attend so our preference is always clean living but we feel that if people were required to live up to these standards they would soon grow to embrace them. Non smoking neighbors are always going to get our respect but we have learned who the smokers are and we are applying some subtle social pressures to their lives as well in this building. We have to fight for our rights somehow when the rules do not change fast enough
I have been renting out my apartments for years and have seen a huge shift. About 10 years ago I had a lot of difficulty finding tenants to the point I had to offer free cable and internet to just get people in. A lot of the time I would only have 3 people to choose from and most were sketchy at best. Now I get hundreds of emails and can pick and choose. The last couple I rented to both had great jobs. One was a teacher and the other was an engineer. In the back of my mind I kept thinking why are these people renting and not buying. In my day these kinds of people would be living in Kitsilano or the West Side.
I am a groundskeeper by trade and it just shocks me how the world has changed. Young guys I work with live in their cars and shower and shave in the community centers. I am just lucky us old tops got in while the getting was good or we would be in the shits.
Something is wrong if two people with good jobs can't afford houses in Vancouver.
My mother told me before I got married to keep a nest egg for myself in case my marriage went bad and to always work and never depend on a man for anything. I have been saving $100 a paycheck and putting it away for 10 years. This amount is now over $15,000.
I have never told my husband about this nest egg even though we have seriously struggled financially at times but its my money.
Because I like their foreign policy and I want to support their culture.
The only thing I really look for in a potential spouse is someone that is a Christian and loves God, and always puts Him first in their life. I could never fully trust someone that doesn't.
I have holes in my clothes, I’ve declined attending weddings, I’ve missed out on live entertainment, pub nights, overseas vacations and pricey dinners out... but I did it, my mortgage is paid off. I cut coupons, I collected bottles, I shopped on sale or not at all to stretch my dollars. Took the bus to avoid gas and parking fees. I definitely feel for people who pay high rent in Vancouver without building any equity over time. I now know that when I retire, my government pension cheque will NOT be going to rent. I can relax now and pick up the things that I avoided for so long in order to pay off the bank. I don’t regret skimping all these years because now I have Financial Freedom!
And you’re unable to help me because you do not understand English you’ve lost me permanently as a customer.
I deliberately sit next to people on the bus who take the outside seat on purpose. You are not special and transit is shared seating.
Thankfully that means that we no longer have to be tortured with men going shirtless when the last thing any of us wants to see is a big hairy gut and some man boobs! Don’t even get me started on the hairy backs....
Take away straws, stand against a pipeline (yet not realise it will still ship by rail), recycle this, compost that. Yet the single biggest thing you could do for the environment with the biggest impact, is to stop eating meat. It is water intensive, land intensive (habitat clearing or more crops dedicated to feed the livestock). Don't give me your local, grass-fed, free-range bullshit you scientifically illiterate hipster fucks. The right is right about the left, super biased and just like all blind partisans, only believe in ideological truths.
Go plant-based, or shut the fuck up about pipelines and straws.
I moved to Vancouver from Regina about 3 years ago and I was a good guy when I got here. I was a hard worker who had this view that there was good in everyone.
That got me nothing with women and my career. I looked around and realized everyone is lying and a big phony so I need to be as well to keep up. I tell women I am some type of big shot with tons of money and that gets me laid. I lie non-stop to them and since I say things with confidence they eat it up.
At work I am a jerk and that got me a promotion. Yeah coming to work on time and exceeding all work expectations got me nothing but being a total jerk gets your noticed.
If someone isn't performing at work I call them out on it and I am not nice about it at all. No more walking on eggshells. I fire people who aren't performing and don't give a #%$@# about it. You think you aren't paid enough then go get another #$@$#@ job and don't complain to me about it. My boss promoted me to Manager and said I have a take no prisoners type of attitude and am willing to do anything to succeed.
Vancouver has brought out the worst in me and maybe this is who I am and I can't go back now.
I am going to become a late-in-life lesbian. There is something dreadfully, terribly wrong with men. How difficult is it to be decent? To be considerate? To call, to pay a compliment, to make breakfast or dinner once in a while (once out of every twenty times that I do it), to write a beautiful letter, to admit you're wrong when you are, to show romance or chivalry? I am not even asking you to have a ton of cash--I just want to be treated nicely. I've dated guys from the ages of 24 to 56 these past several years (not exaggerating) and for whatever reason they are just lost. Just lacking in decency and sweetness and consideration.
Dad, you are the only gentleman I know.
