Do you handle every stressful situation like a dog?

@dalefvictor I think we have discovered part of my issues at work. Seems I may have some hearing loss. So next week I get to visit an audiologist to get my hearing tested. If I do have hearing loss, I'm wondering what else I have missed.... That is my major stressful situation, sadly can't piss on that one. :)

While I know the group here works very hard , to remove potential scammars early on , I sometimes wonder , if they're removing folks who aren't scammers , because they were originally from a different country , so their communication is a little different from what we're used to .
HippieChick58 replies on Jul 11, 2019:
First I want to stress that the group does not remove anyone. The findings are reported to Admin and Site Support. We image search their pictures to see if they have been used on other sites and frequently scammers use photos from porn sites. We do pay attention to language, but we're looking at the broader package. Does the use of language reflect the level of education they say they have, even given for the non native English speakers. We also look at the interactions they have with other groups. Do their comments make sense or do they follow the thread of the conversation. Often potential scammers are reported to the group by other site members when they have had contact and red flags are raised. One red flag is that they want your phone number right away, or call you dear, or similar flags. Bios are frequently copied from other sites. If you google parts of the bio you can find other sites where it is used. People who claim to be from the US but are working overseas are frequently scammers. Sadly I think I have had more contact with scammers than with "real" people on dating sites, except for this one, and I've had contact with more than one scammer here as well. Like I said, we don't remove them, we simply report and let Admin/Site Support make the judgement on that.

I suppressed so many memories that when one slips out I grieve and then remind myself of how strong I am because of that, and how my girls are proud of me for how strong I am, and from that how strong they are. One of the things I did right as a parent was keeping my kids away from my folks. It helped that their dad was in the military and we did not ever live near them. When I moved away, I really moved away.

I have a special place in my heart for Washington. It was there that I found (or refound) my liberal side. I lived in the Tacoma/Bothell/Everett area from 1993 to 1999. In 1999 we moved to Kansas. What a freaking shock, even though I'm originally from Nebraska. I loved the hiking, the ice caves, the water. If not for the cost of living and distance from extended family, I would have loved to stay there.

I never pressured any of my girls to have kids, in fact I was more on the take your time side. I think it worked out well. The youngest had her first child at 25, and the oldest at 33. Considering the toll that babies take on relationships, your body, your finances, and your time, every individual needs to make a decision that is right for them. One size does not fit all.

HippieChick58 replies on Jun 19, 2019:
Ask and you shall receive... sometimes... (Franziska Barczyk/for The Washington Post) By Joyce Cohen June 17 at 12:00 PM It was supposed to be a joyful family gathering. Last spring, Kim Powers-Brown took an overnight train from her home in eastern Washington state to join her relatives at a restaurant near Seattle. Because of her hearing difficulties — she cannot understand speech amid background noise — the group of four requested a quieter spot. “The waitress said no, that side of the restaurant was closed and she was the only waitress on duty — it would be too much trouble,” Powers-Brown said. The family was led to a corner table, with a speaker playing music overhead. She couldn’t understand a word. Her brother demanded they sit in the quieter closed section. “I begged him not to embarrass me,” said Powers-Brown, who was born partially deaf and wears a hearing aid in one ear. [Why I will start including accessibility information in my restaurant reviews] “I apologized twice, but we were still treated rudely,” she said. “It was very uncomfortable. I felt terrible that our get-together meal was such a disaster because of my needs.” Under Title III of the Americans With Disabilities Act, restaurants — as places of public accommodation — must accommodate disabilities. But what if the disability is a hearing impairment, and the request is for a lower volume? On this issue, the law has largely remained silent. Hard-of-hearing diners report a vast range of responses when they seek softer music or quieter seating. Sometimes the music is turned down or off, and sometimes it isn’t. Sometimes it is even turned up. Maybe the volume is declared unchangeable, set by corporate overseers. Or there’s no available seating far from the clattering kitchen, the droning ventilation, the hearty partyers. Powers-Brown, 60, who is earning a library degree, rarely dines out with anyone but her husband. She never even thought to request quiet. “I was brought up to adjust to others,” she said. Instead of struggling to converse over a meal, she reads. The law, though, requires “full and equal enjoyment in places of public accommodation,” said Daniel Fink, a retired Los Angeles doctor and a noise activist. His paper on the disability-rights aspects of ambient noise was presented at a recent meeting of the Acoustical Society of America. “I can guarantee that people with hearing impairments don’t fully enjoy noisy restaurants,” he said. Pisco y Nazca in the District, where dining-room noise levels last fall measured 95 decibels, or about as loud as a power mower. (Deb Lindsey/for The Washington Post) Restaurants these days are louder than ever, to the point where critics (led by The Post’s Tom Sietsema) check volume ...

@Cast1es I talk to people all day long with similar questions, I work in customer service for the Central Billing Office of a not for profit hospital for children. I just started this job 14 weeks ago, this is my second week on the phones without a lead tethered to me. All our calls are recorded and my calls are all reviewed, I have to keep a log. So, I am also reading a book right now called An American Sickness How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back by Rosenthal, Elisabeth I so want to recommend this book to about half of my callers, however I am sure I would be fired so fast there would still be a breeze next week. However, I can recommend it to you. I actually bought a tablet so I can keep the titles of my books private, I read some pretty subversive and rather anti christian stuff, and I'm just not ready to advertise in that office that I'm that far out of the common mold. My supervisor and her boss both wear crosses. I feel your pain, my dear. No one has that type of money. Yes, you can ask for an estimate before you ever have a procedure.
