    Lived in the city for the majority of my life. Moved my family to rural America for some peace and space. I've already had some issues with being out here but one of the major ones is how intrusive businesses are. We have a generator (Noyb's story reminded me of this happening recently) and it needs annual maintenance. I call a guy up for an appointment. He says, "we don't do appointments. I'll give you a heads up when I'm omw. Don't worry, I already have a key to the unit outside. I've worked the property before."

    :confused: Soooooooo, I have like, SOOOOO many questions! Also, the whole "no appointments" thing. Every single service we have gotten is the same way. I'm sure it's related to everyone having a second job out here and they want to try to fit you in according to THEIR schedule, but that's just odd to me.


    Ok, as I read this back, this sounds more like "Complaining and Bitching" but....I think it still fits. Just to make sure, here's an announcement: Chips Ahoy are top tier cookies. :)

    You'll get used to it.
    Things are a lot more laid back out in the country.
    The really cool part is if your generator goes out in the middle of the night, the same guy who coaches your kids in softball will be showing up at 2:00 AM in a storm to fix it.
    Because that's just what people in the country do.

    fflowley Don't just do something, stand there!

    Yep, this is exactly how we work with our plumber for example.
    In an emergency....he comes right over.
    Not an emergency, but we need something done.....we leave him the key, when he's by our place he stops in and takes care of it.
    It's actually more frustrating for us to deal with non-local services like DirecTV..... who the heck wants to wait around for an appointment with them?

    One good thing about wearing a cloth mask for working out in the gym is you can dust the inside with cocaine to improve your workout and lose weight.

    Our desert was "light" reduced fat artisan vanilla ice cream with fresh blueberries.

    I accidentally got this because I didn't notice it was the replacement for the ice cream I ordered that they were out of.
    It's not bad.
    It says it is nonGMO, and suitable for a Vegan diet.
    I don't give a shit as long as it tastes good.

    Women are posing topless on Colorado mountaintops in 'exploding' new trend: 'Freeing and exhilarating' — Fox News

    This is a trend I’d like to encourage throughout the US

    No, not your typical guy saying, Whaa-Hoo, boobs!

    I actually believe women have the right to be topless as men.

    I even walked in the “Free The Nipples” protest march in DC

    It’s just breasts, if you wanted, you could see a multitude on the Internet.

    Why should women be sweating to death and not be able to take their shirts off to be cooler??

    The can be topless without legal consequences in many places throughout the world.

    Americans can be often puritanical.

    We need to let go of this old-school mindset.

    Frankly, I was hesitant to put this in General announcements
    Thinking some still relate topless women to sex and may offend.

    Might as well go back to being shocked ankles were shown.

    But, it’s a public new article, so if they can, I can
    Besides, it goes along with the principle
    It should be anywhere the same as men have.

    Too many men, and certainly some women, turn into morons when they see breasts. Perhaps Topless Rights would work out over time.

    I will not dispute... but back in my days as a stripper I made a lot of money from those morons.:) Those drunk and horny morons could be quite generous.:D
    As long as men and/or women do huge numbers of internet searches for "breasts," "tits," "large natural breasts," and as long as women are willing to pay plastic surgeons to enhance their chests it won't change. There's not a snowball's chance in hell that breasts will become as innocuous as ankles.
    Besides, my avatar wouldn't be nearly as interesting if I showed a side ankle shot instead of a side boob shot.:rolleyes:

    maybe one day they will. in some countries and some societies its like that now, but here in america it may be a long time before it happens and is accepted. their are still stupid people that have an issue with breast feeding in public. i mean a kids gotta eat.
