Awww X3 Well, to avoid conflict, that's a good way of doing things.
I used to be like that, and it's caused me to have the worst anger problem in the history of anger-ism. X___X Now I'm just so outspoken, it's RUDE. To which---when it gets to that---I apologize for the rudeness!

B'aw! If it means anything coming from a stranger, I don't think you're bitchy. XD At least, not from what posts I've seen of yours on the forums. :3

It's good to have opinions, even if you're a bit more expressive than others about them, lol.

I swear, these days even the sweetest of people get flamed for posting an opinion that even mildly disagrees with the popular opinion. @_@

Reads the two above asks the guy she is in a relationship with how to describe her:

"Uou are april, brutally honest sometimes to a fault but you are you can;'t really find any other way to describe you other than that. at least you aren't a total psychopath which would be so easy to do with the idiots you have to put up with.

I think this brutal honesty from boyfreinds can be most amusing. But in honesty we can somtimes tend to act differnt to the people were supposed to be in a relationship with. We can either be fake, or more real with them then our friends or casual aquatances (sp?).

On another note, b--ch of a supervisor stole my TP! If she wants non desinigrate paper that sticks to your - then she can buy it herself.

I was listening to all the previews for Owl City's next album... and I'm not sure if I like it at all. Up until now, Adam Young has easily been my favorite artist, but I feel like he's drifting more towards typical pop. :/ I don't know, these songs just don't seem as original as songs on his prior albums. I can't say I'm super excited about this album even though I've been waiting for it. .....I'll still probably buy it though.

So that made me sad.

I know i'll probably get criticized, be seen, viewed as less of a Man, I know it's tradition, but I hate, despise, loathe on how we guys always have to do the approaching, starting conversations, initiating, etc.

No, that doesn't make you less of a man. That's make's you upset that our culture is dictating that you are expected to behave in a certain way and that if you don't you are punished for it.

Trust me, there are plenty of women who loathe that if they are the ones who approach the man that culture see's them as 'too aggressive' and as proper ladies we're suppose to wait for the man to approach us.

There's one important thing to keep in mind, if you DO all of the above; approaching,starting conversations, and initiating some kind of interactions but are met with a woman who isn't responding to them that has nothing to do with our culture's expectations but is just a girl who really isn't interested in being around you.

To be fair, this is assuming you're speaking in terms of heterosexual relationships.

yeah I hate how we guys have to get labeled, wimps, cowards, pussies, weaklings for not approaching and talking to a girl, just because a guy is shy, timid, afraid to approach a girl does not mean he will be afraid to protect her and stand up for her, because being afraid to approach a girl and ask her out versus being afraid to stand up for her, protect her, are 2 different issues, i obviously know that girls are not gonna bite me or stab me, it's just rejection hurts guys too you know.

I have no idea why my arms are in so much pain >.<

Not to mention work called yesterday when I was over a friends house and my mom's all worried.

Just got off work so I have a peeve to vent about.

Why is it that people try to order food while talking on their cell phone? Especially in the drive-through! Look, it's hard enough hearing what you're saying through these crappy headphones, and you're just making my job harder when you're talking on the phone. Not to mention it makes you take twice as long to order as you try to focus on two things at once, and then when you finally get done there's like 3 irritated cars behind you. Seriously, you don't even have to hang up your phone, just be like "hey I need to set down the phone for 30 seconds so I can order food". It's that easy.

Drunk guys are like Houdini if it is seemingly impossible they will do it. Drunk people can pull of something so amazing, not even they know how they did it. Bryan and Ryan I forgot about them for an hour because I swore they got in. Swore Ryan slipped between the gates some how, and Bryan ran in after a white SUV. However an hour later Bryan knocks on my door much to my surprise. Some how they made it back outside the community without a key and I totally didn't notice them. Apperently they don't even recall getting in the gate the first time. They swore they never got in the first time... ... I think they got in this time.

J_Otaku can you imagine how much it took for some subways to put up a sign that says no celphones.

I wish that I could just put up a sign like that where I work. Sometimes I can't hear them because they say half a sentence of their order, half a sentence of conversation, and it's just completely unintelligible, so I just have them order at the window, which slows down everyone, especially during a lunch rush. It's just frustrating. >_<

THIS IS ONE OF MY BIGGEST PEEVES.
And not just people who stay on their phone during ordering food..it applies in any retail situation ever.

If I'm ringing you up and you're trying to ask me a question AND balance a conversation it gets confusing and annoying REALLY fast.
I've gotten to the point where I'll completely ignore the fact that they're on the phone. I will continue to go through the spiel I have to. Whether or not you pay attention is up to you but I've done my job so there..lol

My boyfriends old job finally put up signs saying no cell phones at the front desk. He was allowed to ignore them until they hung up their phone/stopped talking on it. ^_^ If I ever open up my own business I'm totally going to post similar signs.

I understand your frustration. @_@ If someone comes up to order and they're yammering away on their cell phone for a while without even ordering, I usually just call up the next person and help them since the other person is too busy to order. >>; It just slows everything down, and it makes the people behind them irritated, which I end up having to deal with.

I imagine that it's also painfully annoying in retail! :O Any place that you're trying to give a service, for the matter. It's just very rude to me. I'm trying to provide a service for you, so don't ignore me/gab away on your phone and expect me to understand what you're saying to me in a half-assed manner.

Yes agreeing with "CELL PHONES ARE ANNOYING". had plenty of customers at work who wouldn't get the hell off their phones, and actually thought I could show them the perfect, perfectly-detailed, exactly-what-they-wanted piece without them even as much as saying more than three words to me. It's one thing to be texting or asking someone ABOUT what you're buying if it's for them or whatnot, but going "Liek I KNOE, OMG... what? How much? OMG OMG OMG YEAh... what? ...YEAH I can totally talk I'm not busy! ...what did you say?" ...yah. During Xmas I just refuse to help until they're willing to actually TALK to me. I don't have time to stand there for ten minutes while you yap your head off.

Okay, so I know my parents have done a lot for me and I love them very much, but I'm getting pretty sick of this. My mom thinks she can do no wrong, and every time I try to even reason with her she counts it as talking back, and tells my dad, and then he goes and guilt trips me and makes me apologize. This is seriously getting old.
