THE STORY

I'm planning a move for my elderly mother from her residential home in Baltimore that she has lived in for the past 45 years to a retirement community that has independent living options as well as assisted living. She needs to downsize considerably and perhaps put some of her larger furniture and odds and ends into storage.

I SAY
I am going to find a brand name national moving company who can take care of the move. I can then find a storage facility for the stuff that won't fit into her new home.

THEY SAY
My friends say find one company that is local and who can do everything for you.

Update: My friends were right. I hired a Baltimore mover, Von Paris Moving & Storage, who has a Senior Move Management department that specializes in providing assistance to seniors who are transitioning into new living situations. Since Von Paris maintains a robust portfolio of relocation and moving management services, their experienced and highly skilled team of relocation management experts handled everything from the initial planning through the move. Plus they have a state-of-the-art 100,000 square foot storage facility with climate-control capability and the latest warehousing technology. My Mom was in good hands. I was able to not stress out about this new transition in her life.

I say, he is just letting me down easy, that he is just saying that im attractive etc. to cushion the blow of ...well blowing me off.

THEY SAY
They say, that he seems interested, he may be dealing with some personal stuff and that he says that I'm "incredibly" attractive. . . that he is trying not to burn a bridge bc he may find time later on. That he didn't HAVE to say incredibly attractive.

THE STORY

My roommate assaults her boyfriend, who also hits and steals from her and has been living with us. After she returned from jail and got back with him, I told her I was uncomfortable with him staying with us and asked them to go elsewhere to hang out if they insisted on being together.

I SAY
I dont want him to steal from me, and it's unfair to put me in the middle of all their fights, not to mention how it can affect my own rental history, since she is now getting evicted because of the arrest

THEY SAY
He is a guest of hers and I have no right to dictate who comes over until I decide to pay the entire rent.

THE STORY

My co-worker says that "Spanglish" words like "troca" (for truck, instead of the traditional "camioneta") aren't "real" words. I say, if people use it, it's a real word!

I SAY
Language is constantly changing-- every word came from somewhere.

THEY SAY
There's a reason that every slang term isn't in the dictionary.

My neighbors pick up dog poop with a newspaper and drop it in the garbage can. I think this is totally disgusting.

THE STORY

He told me he liked her before we started dating. Had some issues with that in the few few months together. Now, 2 years later, it still bothers me when he talks to her online and invites her along to group stuff. I've told him it bothers me, but she still gets an invitation even though she doesn't live in the area anymore. Seems like the perfect time to let that friendship fade. "

I SAY
He should respect that it makes me uncomfortable and stop inviting her

THEY SAY
He understands why I'd be upset, but she's just a friend.

THE STORY

Pizza Pizzazz is a kitchen appliance made specifically for cooking pizza without having to preheat an oven. The pizza turns out pretty good when cooked on it. It costs around $50. The catch to the Pizzazz is that you have to turn the cooking dial past 16 minutes or the heat does not turn on and the pizza will just spin without being cooked, as was learned several times (some pizzas only cook for 12 minutes or so)

I SAY
Pizza Pizzazz is unneccesary: I have a perfectly good oven already and don't need to spend $50 on a specialty pizza cooker.

THEY SAY
Pizza Pizzazz is perfect for cooking pizza, there is no need to preheat the oven, and it is definitely worth the cost.
