Döner is the meat. I wanted it with meat and cheese. kalf = calf. Apparently döner comes from a calf. So when she said "kalf", she meant the meat called "döner" and when she said "speciaal", she meant "with cheese", because it appeared to be the special is the one with cheese added. So I was supposed to translate it.

It's like you're in a MacDonalds and order a Big Mac. Then someone says a few minutes later "who ordered two slices of bread with cow and salad?" Would you say "yeah, that's me"?

There are a lot of issues here, but the most important is that I don't have any of these dishes in front of me right now.

Condolences. I once waited 3 weeks for ISP to restore Internet...
But it could actually help to focus on movies or games.

That said, I haven't been gaming at home for over a year. :/

I have to agree. I always prefer everything to stay the same. If you dont believe me, I'm still using the older IMDb and ICM version every time I can. Is there an option here to revert to a previous version, preferably even the one before that?

At least how can I make it darker? As a vampire any amount of light kills me a bit.

Dear Flicker Alley,

Thank you so much for your recent email in which you promote your Friday Hanukkah Sale with "20% Off". I regret to inform you that offering 2 movies at 10% off each does not constitute "20% off." Percentages simply don't work that way. If I offered 10 titles at 10% off and you bought all ten titles, you wouldn't end up with "100% off", but rather 10% off your entire order.

Sincerely,
Knaldskalle

I hate the ‘normal’ social rules that come with relationships. My boyfriend hasn’t met my grandparents or come to any family events, because either he has been busy or hasn’t wanted to, but every time I’m with family ‘where’s bf, whyyyyy isn’t heeee hereeeee’ and my dad yelled at me when I said only I would be there at Christmas. We like to keep our lives pretty separate but everyone else wants us to merge into one empty blob. He’s dating me, not them, there is no reason for him to meet them or hang out with them. It’s so annoying.

And there was an AskReddit today asking people the best thing about being single and people were like ‘doing what I want, when I want, with who I want’ and ‘being able to participate in my hobbies’. Are they prisoners dating their prison guards, wtf?

The grass is always greener ...

A relationship is always going to take time away from your own schedule and there will always be a need for some compromise. But some relationships are going to be worse than others.

There's a guy who has been at my work since before I started (nearly 9 years ago). I liked him initially but he has gotten increasingly aggravating over the years that it makes me want to leave when he turns up for a job, or at least I go out of my way to avoid him. He is gay and very flamboyant, which is fine, but almost everything he says is a joke about him being gay. I've heard the same stuff over and over for nine years. Being gay is not funny :/ just stop plz.

That was tolerable enough though until a few years ago when suddenly he started making jokes about me being pregnant/having just been pregnant and now raising a couple of kids. I don't know why this started, we've never been close and there was never an incident or discussion where this could've come from. For a while I thought it was fat jokes, but then I lost weight and he has still been doing it. Last night example: "Lauren, you're pregnant. Drive home safe". The other night: "Oh I heard you were pregnant and now have two kids". WHY. I hate it so much seriously. If he gets the location next to me, my heart sinks and I just dread the moment he realises he can make another pregnancy joke.

He also does another thing (to everyone) like, "Oh Lauren I'm so not into you, you're not my type you know". LEAVE ME ALONE

Do you think there's room to have one of those uncomfortable adult discussions, with or without a superior/HR rep present, in which you explain that his jokes are not appreciated?

That's a difficult one but to me it seems like he's not aware it is disturbing you. If you are able to, I'd just tell him one on one, no other people involved.

Oh, one thought: Mighty would have to feel comfortable (and safe) having that discussion one-on-one. If not, blocho's is the better choice though that carries a different set of risks since now someone else is involved and they may or may not do a good job.

It's not really worth the hassle. Everyone else seems to think his jokes are hilarious (and he has 'in-jokes' with a number of people, but he's friends with them too). He's very well-liked and if I complained about it I think it would make me look stupid and it might cause issues. We also don't have any kind of HR. I've put up with it for like 5 years, I think I can wait it out a little longer until I finally leave.

He doesn't seem to lack confidence...

Being gay is not funny :/ just stop plz.

That was tolerable enough though until a few years ago when suddenly he started making jokes about me being pregnant/having just been pregnant and now raising a couple of kids. I don't know why this started, we've never been close and there was never an incident or discussion where this could've come from. For a while I thought it was fat jokes, but then I lost weight and he has still been doing it. Last night example: "Lauren, you're pregnant. Drive home safe". The other night: "Oh I heard you were pregnant and now have two kids". WHY. I hate it so much seriously. If he gets the location next to me, my heart sinks and I just dread the moment he realises he can make another pregnancy joke.

He also does another thing (to everyone) like, "Oh Lauren I'm so not into you, you're not my type you know". LEAVE ME ALONE
Sorry you have to deal with that, it sounds really obnoxious and uncomfortable. I can't say I've ever been forced to spend much time around anyone who was specifically like that, to my knowledge, but it sounds awful. Whether he means to or not, he's upsetting you and that's not cool.

Why is hair so expensive :( I found a hairdressers that did a woman’s cut for a flat $50 which is amazing but it was booked out so I went to a pricier salon. $130 cut. Decided to get foils as well since it’s been a while. About $400 for the whole thing. Costs my boyfriend $25 max any time he get a cut.

I haven't had a haircut since October, but my friend dyed it two weeks ago at the salon where she works. With a $30 tip and a bottle of expensive shampoo, I got out of there for $120.
