Tons of websites require at least a little bit of this every time you want to look at your bank account or something like that, and it’s getting annoying. Yes, it’s absolutely for a good reason, and we’re glad that no robots can get to our money, but it still drives us up the wall if there are two or even three layers of captcha or “click to confirm you aren’t a robot” pages before we can see our important financial information.
Plus, what if you find out that you ARE a robot? It hasn’t happened yet, but we could be heading in that direction.
Despite how many people moan about the number of divorces going on, most people only get engaged once. And guess what, there are always going to be more people making their way to the aisle. People are excited to show off that fancy new ring or some fun engagement pictures because they're excited!
Dude, are you really trying to tell people not to be excited about getting engaged? We can't cross that line with you, Dude, we just can't. Do you expect people not to get engaged to make you happy? It ain't gonna work, no matter how many cardboard signs you hold up.
That's a Really Good Question
We love nicknames here. Rob for Robert, Gabe for Gabriel, Dave for David, Mike for Michael, and so on and so forth. There are a bunch of choices of nicknames for Richard, but one of them tends to stand out. Yes, it's Dick. You could have gone with Rick, Ricky, or Rich, but you chose Dick instead. How does that even make sense?
It's like having a nickname for Elizabeth to be something like Seth. It just doesn't track. There's also...you know, the additional connotations that come with the word. It's really fallen out of favor in the last few decades, and maybe that's for the best.
Dude! Come on! It kind of is, but we can see where the Dude is coming from. Sure, maybe you didn't bite off that side of the food you're double-dipping, but it's still a faux pas no matter what. If you're just hanging out with friends, you might be able to get away with it, but if you're at a fancy party, stick to the single dip.
It can spread germs, it can mess up the dip, and you don't really need to do it. That's the main thing – just grab a different chip or carrot or whatever. Don't use the same one twice.
A Piece of Classic Advice
Ah, something that has been passed down through the ages. It has never skipped a generation. Maybe you don't know, or maybe you do, but it's always a better idea to go shopping when you aren't hungry. If you're hungry, your brain will slip into a little bit of panic buying. You'll end up buying a lot more food than you need, which isn't good for either your waistline or your budget.
Try to go shopping after a meal, or at some other time when you aren't hungry. This can be difficult, but your budget – whether for calories or dollars – will thank you for life.
