@41, I am fairly sure that few, if any, in this thread feel you need to keep explaining things.

OTOH, the LW would probably love this trait. You wouldn't be the one who asked for his email, would you?

I didn't bother reading the comments to CLOSURE's original letter, but in light of the new one, if there is exactly one thing CLOSURE takes from this, it should be:

"Next time around, you should make a greater effort to shut up and listen, rather than always trying to score your own extremely valid points. "

jesus horatio christ...the kid is EIGHT and she's going on and on about this?

LW is playing a shitty passive aggressive game with her husband (although he doesn't seem to know it), and trying to get the kid to side with her on a decision she agreed to years ago but regrets. That's super crappy. If the kid ends up having issues later, it's more likely going to be because of these mind games rather than his name, which seems to be fine with everyone except Mom.

WTF is wrong with this LW? She sounds like an entitled brat. No, slut-shaming isn't cool, but neither is flaunting your casual sex life and weed usage in front of your mom/landlord. LW may have made it through college, but she sure hasn't matured.

@24 has it right

@8 I was confused about that too, but re-reading the letter it's not totally clear (plus, if it was just a weekend, would LW have said it was a weekend getaway?). Regardless, I think the scenario Dan puts forth is possible even if it's just a couple days, and the LW would likely be more likely to eat the cost/forgo the trip if it was just a weekend.

Dan gets it totally right here. LW needs to do it right away, and bow out of the trip.

@1 - exactly. That's just embarrassing.

Come on, Rich. I know you're new(ish) here, but it's not like 7 Year Bitch was some obscure unsigned act that never got any coverage.

I like DOUG.'s idea. I don't think jail time is appropriate - but I would also go ahead and put a big old view-obstructing wall on the properties (that the owners have to pay to construct).

And if the arborist companies have any responsibility for checking that appropriate permits are in place, they should face some sort of fines as well (although far lesser).

No shit more than millenials are using AirBnB - but suddenly that means looking at the 60-90 demographic? Gen X gets no love, even from a Gen X paper, sob......
Sep 7 genevieve commented on Today in Stupid: Video Shows Assholes Destroying Instagram's Favorite Oregon Rock.
@8 that last Instagram is a parody account. The one right above it, however, is a perfect example of a social media "brand" that takes itself way too seriously. And there's a glorious fight going on in the comments, as the IG commentariat either condemns or defends the idiotic statement of Laura Whatsername condemning those who didn't stop the vandals while basking in her own recklessness on the rock.
