@14 - LOL, nice catch. And, we should treat those children just like normal people....

I spit when I have a cold or some other congestion, and no I'm not going to carry around a tissue to spit into. I think spitting in the street or in the grass is fine, which is what I do and I'm no going to stop - bwahahaha hock'a'too

@1 - I really enjoy this column and for a second I also thought that this iteration was about her pretending to like Nickelback, for which I would have lost all respect of the author. There are somethings you just cannot and should not fake. Instead, I'm now interested in checking out Nickel Creek. Keep on rock'n Kathleen.

One word of caution. The person that mailed the package probable knows the returned address he/she used. If they are unsavory enough they may come looking for their package. I'm guessing it's probably a neighbor. Use an address that close enough that if it is returned you have the potential to spot it and retrieve the box before the home owner is aware. That being said, I'd take out whatever portion you're interested in giving to friends and give the rest to the police, if they live close enough they will see the cop car and leave you alone, or, if it's legal, give it to cancer coop.

I could be wrong, but it pretty much appears that she is talking about Seattle, not a person. She isn't wishing drug abuse on someone, but found it as part of the overall fabric of how she remembers the town that she loved and accepted as is.

LW2 - I think that answer rolls right into what kind'a films/videos do you do?!?!, if the person hasn't already figured out what an independent contractor doing videos at home probably means. I would work on that line and say something like "I work as an independent contractor with digital content, which really means I can be doing lots of different things/jobs in a given week." Then redirect. I think that's way better then what was suggested. :)

It you cannot really see/appreciate why other people might not want a mouse running around their work place, then you're probably the wack job in this scenario.

Sounds like you have a self imagine problem you're projecting onto others inaction. People do not need to engage you or acknowledge your existence. In fact doing so can initiate unwanted interaction. Some people take a smile as simply a smile saying have a good day and leave it at that. Others see it as an invitation to interact on a deeper and potential unwanted level. Relax and enjoy your anonymity.

@31 Again on you. I didn't say "don't resist," I said "don't yell" -- Like "get the hell out of my bed," which would be punching down, as she noted. Her and some other posters thoughts on the matter were all about understanding and empathizing. I mean really, the victim shouldn't yell back even if the thief is yelling at you, and she appreciates the store probably has "a strict policy on stealing." Yeah, they need a policy. It's a hilarious anon. Also,If you didn't notice my response wasn't an angry "I hope they cut your head of and rape you dead body," but focused on just opening yourself up to the community at large, be giving and understanding yourself. I was laughing and imagining a person just wanting a little love. I was actually thinking snuggling, and perhaps you wouldn't have rushed to rape if I had said that, but that's the only measure I will give. I don't equate "a little love" to rape and don't think rape is funny, which is the only reason I have responded. So, yes, seriously.

@28 - I was thinking spooning not rape. A little love does not equal rape, that's not love. You took it there, so look to yourself for insights on that. You could have at least said "if I was referring...". Otherwise we seem on the same page, it's a bit obnoxious to ask the victim to worry about the thief's feelings.
