    Tell him you can feed him like a dog too fill a dish with kibble and set it on the kitchen floor
    ...and tell him he has to sit quietly by the door when he wants to be let outside to pee.

    I mean, if he wants to be treated like the dogs, it's all or nothing.

    This is just a general rant, because I have had a crappy week!
    I now live alone in a rural area--I often don't see or speak to anyone for 5 or 6 days. This week, I had 3 different people saying they were stopping by or I was meeting up with them for a snack or lunch. I was so looking forward to the outings and the company. All three had to cancel because of overtime at work or family issues. So, I spent my Canadian tire money, filled my fuel tank and went out window shopping alone in town.
    I guess my point is, if you have friends or relatives that live alone, think before you 'cancel out' on them. You have no idea how much they may be hoping for that little bit of in person interaction. And don't just 'visit' on holidays, it is amazing how lonely the rest of the year is and how one little visit can change a whole week.
    there..rant done..and I feel better and now I am going out for a nature walk--yes...alone...

    I HATE nothing more than people cancelling at last minute. I've had a lot of people treating me that way the last year or so, so have cut dead weight people out of my life. But, please do remember that some of those issues you've mentioned are out of people's control. Sometimes your job forces you to work overtime and family issues do come up, so don't feel like they're abandoning you. I hope you have a better week, and we care about you here!

    Just really glad that our power came back on last night.....45 hours without power. Thank goodness for the generator that saved everything in the fridge and freezer again. We were without power 38 hours last Dec. so I guess this last one was the record. I guess my rant is that Hydro One should be able to isolate problems sooner.

    I have worked 6 days straight, 6am to 5:30 pm. I am so freaking tired and yet each night after getting home, I have had to do at least 1 1/2 hrs housework. Which wouldn't be so bad except DH was home for the last 2 days. ARRRRRGGGGGG!

    We don't have to respect the President of the United States.. we should however respect the office.. It's not ok to show video of him with toilet paper stuck to his shoe.. or his comb over flapping in the wind.. There really is no need to do that to anyone.. its not funny..it's not right.. its a form of bullying ..

    It's not ok for anyone to share intimate details between 2 consenting adults.. if a man were to have sex with a female and spread it all over the internet and tv.. we'd be horrified and rightly so.. It's not ok either for a female even if they are a porn star to publicly shame a male.. mocking size and shape.. She had sex with someone that disgusted her by choice.. to discuss and mock that in public is sooo horribly wrong.. there is nothing that makes that acceptable..

    Mental health.. We have supposedly come a long way with regards to mental illness. We're long past the times of locking people away and forgetting about them but lordie.. Kanye West is going through a horrible mental health crisis.. Instead of be supportive and giving him time out of the spot light.. He is being video'd and trashed online.. News programs are blasting his episodes for the world to see.. reporters, comedians , talk show hosts are mocking him and his behavior.. Where is our compassion.. our humanity.. we should be refusing to share that.. Doing the responsible , caring, right thing is not always easy but surely its possible. This is not ok.. I wouldn't want this done to anyone I loved or cared about.. its not ok to do it to anyone
    Be sure to click like and post a brag if you get the deal.. It makes my day!!! Flattery may just get you more deals

    @MillieH wrt to everything you posted I do agree.
    However....Mr Trump is the biggest most obnoxious unrelenting bully on the Twittersphere and until he shuts his ignorant trap the " two wrongs don't make it right " attacks will continue.
    He has never once respected the Office of the Presidency he was so fortunate to have been elected to, so there is that.

    Kanye has had many many tv anchors on CNN and daytime talk shows voice their concern for his mental health, asking why on earth isn't anyone close to him stopping to help him. BUT....they also comment and discuss the validity/purpose of the statements he made while in the Oval Office because that is news.

    I know late night tv hosts do their jokes and stuff, that is their cross to bear. I do remember the Obamas having despicable memes and comments made about them, ( claiming Michelle was a man and depicting her as an ape ) so disrespecting the Presidency is nothing new.

    It is all hurtful but past Presidential occupants were never as disrespectful as this one is. He will never change. The Office did not make him more Presidential it just magnified his worst qualities.

    I am 3/4 the way through Stormy Daniels book, and she never asked for any of this.
    HE called HER a liar. She was not lying and the proof is there. Her life story is quite interesting, it is eye opening for anyone painting Porn actresses as bimbos.
    Imho she only inserted a small part in one chapter of her book with intimate details of her encounter with Trump because she was just so fed up of his bullying tactics. Fight fire with fire.

    Some excellent points as always When a person belittles or attacks another person, it shows who the attacker is, not the character of the person attacked. When we take on the behavior of someone like Trump , it feeds him and encourages more of the same. We can't change the behavior of others but we can change situations by how we respond to them. I highly doubt many believed that she was fibbing. I didn't.. I do find though discussing their intimate interactions and his penis size and shape with anyone is wrong.. To do it on talk shows and in a book puts her lower than Trump in my view and that I thought was impossible to do.

    Why do people ruin a good thing.I do marketing at Walmart demos, shelves etc. Saw someone return everything on checkout 51 a few times at various stores. Since I k ow management I guess walmart people are contacting checkout 51 to flag returns and they don't want to participate in it soon. So if people get their account suspended oh well. One person returned 50 worth of drugs and food that have to be destroyed. Why do people ruin a good thing..
