My husband likes helping around the house and I really appreciate the help, but he can be a lot to deal with. Whenever he cleans, he piles my things up and leaves them waiting for me to put away as soon as I walk in the door. Then he scolds me for being so messy--which I’m not. Last weekend, we went grocery shopping and before I could put anything in the cart, he had to double check the prices of every competing brand. Like I said, it’s really nice that he helps out and tries to save money, but he treats me like a child that didn’t put their toys away or doesn’t understand the concept of money. I’ve tried talking to him about it and he said I was overreacting and most women would kill to have a husband that helps as much as he does. I don’t know what to do. How do I get him to stop trying to be my parent all the time?
Slacker says that most women have a problem with their husband. He thinks she is crazy. It is bad that he is bossy, but it’s a not that bad. It’s all in how a person perceives it. “If someone were to come to my house and clean up and put my things in a corner because they don’t know where they go, then sue me.” It is a partnership. So what, someone competitively shops.
Steve agrees with Slacker and thinks that it is not okay that the gender roles are flipped. Women do this to men all the time. And right when the men tell the women to pick up their things, it becomes an ordeal.
What advice would you give Kim?
I have a man that is like this but he doesn’t scold me. That’s where Kim is right. You don’t have to treat her like a child. My boyfriend cleans up after me all the time and quite frankly is more domesticated than I, but he is nice about it. He neatly places my things for me to put away, and when I see them folded, I’ll put them away. He doesn’t nag me like a child. There’s a difference.I would tell her to just voice how she feels and just say, "Hey, you don't have to be su rude about it." There's moting scarier than an upset wife!
She is responsible, fun, and the kids love her. She is your babysitter of 4 years and is turning into a beautiful young woman. The problem is that Mom wants to fire her, and Dad wants to keep her because the children would be upset. It is the Great Mate Debate.
Slacker said it’s weird because of the “cradle rocking” factor. We don’t know if Amber is one of those girls that want to ruin a relationship. Slacker questioned about the kids and if it would be worth it to cuts those ties and introduce someone new to the kids, and the Mom replied, “Absolutely, it’s worth it to me.” Slacker thinks it’s very hard to find a great baby-sitter. And if the kids are comfortable then keep her!
Steve thought it was a “slam dunk” on his side, until he heard Mom’s side saying, “Amber is like a juicy steak sitting on front of you, when you’re really hungry.” The temptation would be so hard to resist. Steve thinks Dad makes a good point that even if he fired the babysitter it would be a 6-block walk to her house if he wanted to cheat on his wife. It would be awkward if they fired her because then the neighbors would think something already happened.
Whose side are you on?
I am on the dad’s side. Despite their past they need to resolve their differences. A good, reliable babysitter is hard to find. Mom had a great reason to be a little insecure about the babysitter, but not to the point of firing her when she has grown with the family and been reliable for them. I think it would crush the babysitter to know that the mom is being like this especially when I can bet that she isn’t even into the dad!
A recent post on reddit asked, "what is the weirdest thing you've ever seen someone doing through their window?" Among the responses:
- A woman weighing her boobs on some scales. I have no idea if this is a normal thing women do.
- My neighbor licking her cats. She has like 5 cats and they are mostly outside wandering around. One day She just licked the cat for like 10 minutes...I couldn't look away.
- One Christmas when I was like, 8 or 9 my dad and I were walking around looking at Christmas lights in the neighborhood with our next door neighbor. After a while I got tired so my dad put me up on his shoulders. As we're walking along I have a pretty good vantage into this one house where the owners are having a Christmas party. They had all gone outside but they left the candelabra burning in the dining room, and it had burned down far enough to catch some surrounding flowers or something on fire. The entire table had caught aflame, which I saw from my vantage point on my dad's shoulders. I was like "Their table is on fire" so our neighbor went up and looked into the window, is like "holy s***" and runs around to the house's backyard to tell the owners their house was on fire.
- Last winter At around 2am I was coming home from a friends and I turned around in the driveway of a house two doors down so I could park on the limited street space infront of my house a bit better. As my head lights swept the house I saw the silouette of someone staring at me out of the little frosted window at the top of the front door. A very tall person by the height of the window. Got major creepy vibes and noped out of the driveway as fast as I could and ran into my house.
The next morning I went out to my car for work and half the block was covered in ambulances and police cars. It turns out that the neighbor's husband was cheating on her, and was likely going to bring his girlfriend home that night because she was supposed to be visiting her sister. Instead she hung herself infront of the front door so they would walk in and see her body.
The person staring at me was a dead woman. hanging, waiting for her unfaithful husband.
What is the weirdest thing you've ever seen through someone's window?
Demi Lovato recently admitted she would “smuggle” drugs onto airplanes because she could only go so long without a fix. “With my drug use … I couldn’t go 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine, and I would bring it on airplanes,” she told Access Hollywood. She also admitted, “I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka, and it was just nine in the morning and I was throwing up in the car. … When I hit that moment I was like, it’s no longer fun when you’re doing it alone,” she added. “I think at 19 years old, I had a moment where I was like, ‘Oh my God … that is alcoholic behavior … I gotta get my s*** together.’”
We're going into the holidays and we want your mind to be free of burden. What is the biggest secret you need to confess to?
Stephanie joined us on the air today to tell us her OPP. She has been with her boyfriend for a little over 2 years and she doesn't love him anymore. She was planning on breaking up with him, but then her dad let it slip that he knew her boyfriend had a big gift planned for Stephanie for Christmas. Now, she really wants the gift and is trying to decide if she should stay with him until after the holidays. She said that she knows what the gift is and it is something that he put a lot of money and effort into...but she wouldn't tell us what it is!
Both Slacker and Steve say that they have to know what the gift is in order to make their decision on this. Slacker thinks she sounds very shallow without telling us what the gift is. He also said that she should have broken it off before Thanksgiving, and because she didn't, she is now stuck with him until after Christmas. Steve says that for appearances sake, if she stays for the gift, she has to stay with him until January at the very minimum.
Eventually, Stephanie told us that she found out that her boyfriend is restoring her grandmother's china cabinet for her. She was very close with her grandma and she has loved the cabinet since she was a child.
Should she stick around for the gift or leave him anyway?
Swallowed by Slacker and Steve,posted Dec 11 2013 8:02PM
Mark Watts was recently arrested for stealing and swallowing $59,000 worth of diamond rings. He posed as a construction worker before examining the rings at a Brisbane, Australia jewelry store. When the clerk turned her back, Watts bolted. Employees chased him into a pharmacy and cornered him before he swallowed the one-carat diamond solitaire ring and 1.53-carat yellow diamond ring. A judge has refused to grant bail until Watts passes the rings.
Whether it was on purpose or by accident, what is the craziest thing you swallowed? Keep it clean!
Boomerang buys are consumers who go and buy something and use/ wear it once and return it. We are not talking about returning something because it work or fit right, but these people literally have the intention of using it once and returning it. There is even talk of Victoria’s Secret shredding items when returned, things like underwear. This is called “wardrobing.”
Slacker personally knows person who bought the gum to remove the tags off of clothing and put them back on. Slacker has done it before. “We were in band and we couldn’t rent a lighting rig to play the event and we didn’t have the money to buy it, so we screwed a completely innocent store over. We bought the lights and then drove the next town returned it.”
Steve says women are notorious for doing this. It is crazy. Can you do that with cars? Jets? RV’s? Hmm.
Have you ever bought something with the full intention of using it once and returning it?
I have never done this before. When I buy something I want it forever. I am not gonna buy something to wear it once. Especially with going through all the hassle to get the tag back on or look like a fool to leaving the tag on and someone points it out. I’ll pass.
Sneezed by Slacker And Steve,posted Dec 10 2013 5:22PM
A sneeze, a very relieving occurrence can feel so satisfying, but can be very dangerous. A man crashed his 18-wheeler when he sneezed and ran his truck off the road, spilling his shipment of corn syrup. Cleaning crews dropped chemicals to prevent cars from slipping. The driver was not injured but we still don’t know the severity of the damage. This all happened because of a sneeze.
Slacker thinks that people who have sneeze accidents is so insane because he has never confused the gas and the break. He hit his head on stuff. But never blacked out.
Steve has never blacked out from a sneeze, but he saw the little black dots afterwards. He thinks if you have to sneeze then to just let it out. Do not hold it in. You’re head will explode.
Has something completely outrageous happened to you because you sneezed?
I love sneezing. It is like scratching an itch that you just need to get and having that satisfaction afterwards is pure bliss. Okay that’s a little much. But I have never caused damage because of a sneeze. I do agree that sneezing while driving is quite scary.
Today’s OPP was confused when she received her 18-year-old daughter’s Christmas list this year. She wants collagen lip injections because she in self-conscious about how small they are. Mom and Dad are contemplating between yes and no because it’s not breast implants or other plastic surgery. She is going to be a legal adult in a week, but they are wondering if 18 is too young for surgery.
Slacker says it is not surgery. Parents should help improve her self esteem because that’s their job, to tell her she is pretty the way she is. Slacker’s wife was told by her mother that she needed Botox in between her eyes, so she got it. And she is gorgeous. But he thinks it makes the girl look more sexual and when she turns 18 and can pay for it herself, then by all means go get the collagen.
Steve thinks that 18 is not too young to improve one’s self conscious. He thought they’d start getting it done at 13. He would let his daughter if he had one, because she is 18 and it would improve her self esteem.
What should the parents do? Is 18 too young for surgery?
I am a bit torn between yes and no because if she wants lip injections, get a job and go pay for it by yourself. But also, this society is telling her she needs to have bigger lips to be beautiful which I think is stupid. I mean, being an 18 year old in this society is hard because there’s a standard woman have to live up to. And sometimes that standard is unrealistic.
Asleep by Slacker And Steve,posted Dec 10 2013 3:21PM
Tom Wagoner fell asleep aboard a United Airlines airplane and he awoke to a dark plane. He was confused as to what was going on because there was no one on the plane. Tom even missed his connecting flight because he was fast asleep. He ended up calling his girlfriend and she didn’t believe he was trapped. Low and behold he was telling the truth and the matter is now being investigated.
Slacker hates the whole process of traveling. He is baffled the man wasn't woken up by the cleaning crew or the flight attendants. He has worked for the airlines before and he has never been on an airplane by himself. "I can't get my brain around this. He was totally drunk.” Slacker falls asleep in Vegas all the time.
Steve agrees and hates the process and can't imagine what this guy was thinking. Steve wonders why the guy didn’t open the door on the plane and have the parachute slide pop out, but if the plane is off and everything shut down, does that still work? He fell asleep during a show like Cirque Du Soleil and the whole thing was loud and Steve was unconscious asleep.
I love to sleep. I fall asleep in cars, trains, buses, planes, pretty much any moving object. The weirdest place I ever fell asleep was on the Ferris wheel at an amusement park. Talk about a weird awakening. How did I even fall asleep? I don’t know. I was a kid. And I love my sleep.
A man and woman were hunting in Lafayette, Georgia. The man decided to go after a deer and left his friend behind. He heard a rustling in the woods as he fired a shot, accidentally shooting the woman in the leg. She was rushed to the hospital, but the man waited for her to wake up to read her a letter. In it contained how sorry he was and how much he cared for her. Despite losing her leg and him getting arrested, they are now officially a couple.
Slacker met his wife at a strip club. She was not a stripper. They were both attending an event and their eyes met, and it was history from there.
Steve says a lot of people meet on the internet nowadays. If people met on the internet ten years ago they would be ashamed. But it is acceptable now.
What was the weird way you met your significant other?
I met my current boyfriend in high school and he never knew I had the biggest crush on him. We went our separate ways in life and met again at an event and it was there I knew he was the one for me. Little did I know that he also had a crush on me too back in high school! It was fate. And history ever since.
Sometimes you have to put up with stuff in a relationship and it really bugs you. It bugs you so much that you snap and end it. No ifs, ands, or buts, you’re done! A new survey came out that women cheated on their husbands because they wore socks during relations. The same survey revealed that women cheated because they didn’t like the dirty talk, or were too “ungentlemanly,” meaning they stole the covers at night or only pleasured themselves and not their wife.
Slacker thinks that wearing socks mean that men care more about their comfort than relations instead of just taking them off. He said, “I don’t wear socks to bed just in case.” The straw that broke Slacker’s first marriage’s back was volleyball. His wife wanted to sign up for volleyball and that was the straw. She was looking for ways to avoid him. “I will wear that insecurity like a badge.”
Steve likes to wear his socks and eat his garlic butter. Yes, Steve loves the garlic butter that comes with pizza that is delivered. He just laughs at the matter and salutes ending the relationships.
What was the straw that broke your relationship’s back?
The straw that broke my relationships back was the guy’s lack of cleanliness. I was like his
mother. I did his laundry, made our bed, cleaned his hair from around the sink, and washed the dishes. He never helped me, not once, nor did he offer. Finally one day, I threw the scrubbing brush into the sink and my hands up in the air and said, “DONE!” And that was that. We haven’t talked since.

Candy has been trying to spice up her relationship with her boyfriend of a year and a half. She started sending him naked pics, but he asked her stop because he doesn’t want a girlfriend that does that kind of thing.
Slacker thinks Steve is over thinking it. Just because he doesn’t want pictures doesn’t mean he is cheating. He doesn’t get the picture thing; he likes women right in front of him. He thinks of himself as “warped, ” because pictures don’t do anything for him. He would rather get a text saying what terrible things you’re going to do. There’s no mystery. Slacker thinks that the boyfriend is just a classy guy that is telling his girl to stop sending. It is not unrealistic for a guy to think this.
Steve thinks he is cheating. What guy wouldn’t want pictures of his girlfriend?! The fact that there’s no mystery is the point of the picture. The boyfriend is done with her. It is over. But there’s something to him vocalizing how he feels.
What should Candy do?
I think that Candy just needs to ask him why he doesn’t want the pics. If he is a real man then he would not get tired of the pictures… I think there is something else going on here. He is getting other pictures from someone else or he’s gay. She either needs to dig deep and do some investigating or leave. If he doesn’t want to spice it up with her…on to the next one!
Christmas lights, candy canes, and ornaments all have one thing in common. Yes, holiday decor, but also a high cause of injury during the holidays. About 15,000 injuries are reported due to putting up holiday decorations and the stats are rising!
Slacker is not decorating this year and usually gets hurt doing one thing or another, especially after seeing an ordeal unfold in his own neighborhood. He doesn’t even want to try and attempt to put up lights on his house because it is very high and a dangerous task to complete. His theory is that this man fell and was hanging by his gutter. A piece of the gutter impaled the man. There was talk for flight for life!
Steve hates those nosey people that try and see what the situation is during an emergency. He hates the inflatable decorations in front of the house, but if the man would have landed on the inflatable decorations, he could’ve been saved.
Have you ever been hurt for the holidays?
I absolutely love decorating for the holidays but you would never catch me on my roof putting up lights. I am not going to be the one getting hurt for the pretty lights to be admired. But I will for sure do the Christmas tree by myself. The only time I was ever hurt by decorations is when a sliver of a candy cane splintered my finger. But that’s about it.

It doesn't faze him and he tells me he doesn't care. I'm at a loss. Has anyone ever had Santa not deliver presents to their kids? How did the kids react? Thanks for your help.

In England, a company director showed up for work in a brand-new $290,000 Ferrari – and spent the day firing 45 employees … Just in time for Christmas. A spokesman for the worker’s union at the company showed some restraint, calling the behavior, “insensitive at best.”
Has anyone ever done something horrible to you before the holidays?
Hot Doctors by Slacker And Steve,posted Dec 5 2013 6:53PM
Ladies, meet Dr. Manuel Rico. He's a gorgeous guy from Spain, also known as The Hottest Gynecologist EVER. Yup ... this ridiculously good-looking male, who was crowned the Spanish Beauty King back in 2010, is also an OB/GYN! Can you imagine having HIM examine you down there?!
Slacker said he would think it was weird if he was coughing while his hot chick doctor was checking his prostate. Your body is a dirty germy place. He doesn’t want good looking people even working on his car. People that are good looking and are for example, an I.T. person, they are “not as devoted at their craft as the others.”
Steve said he would not mind a hot chick being his doctor in some situations. He thinks that women would want a female GYNO that is an older man or a woman. If Steve is getting a prostate checked it has to be an old battle ax of a guy.
How about you ladies? Would you like for your “lady” doctor to not only be a guy but a hot guy?
I would not care too much. Male or female doesn’t matter to me the quality and expertise is what I care about. Although I did have a hot guy give me x-rays the other day and I was feeling a bit uncomfortable since I was not looking my best you know hospital gown my legs weren’t shaved etc. So maybe I would not like it unless… ok I would still like it.
Shoplifters by Slacker And Steve,posted Dec 5 2013 6:36PM
The Rochester, Minnesota police recently arrested Shonna Booker for shoplifting and for macing a loss prevention officer. She was holiday shopping at J.C .Penney when the officer confronted her about the stolen items. Booker maced him before an officer arrested her and charged her with disorderly conduct, theft, obstruction of justice and unlawful use of a dangerous weapon.
Slacker this is the time of year that it is really prevalent I think that 15% of people that do it is cause of need. The other 80% do it for the thrill or cause they want it and can’t afford it. A man cased the music store that slacker worked at but didn’t realize slacker was an employee and he shoved a tiffany CD down his pants. He was caught and was unable to join the military because of it! Slacker loved chasing people out of the store. All you have to do is throw something at them and at full momentum they would fall to the ground and bust their face. There are secret shoppers and they are watching you.
Steve says that if you get away with it you’ve got to respect it. Steve has stolen everything but cars. He would run scams with friends. Just pushing the limits to see how far they could get. Now it wouldn’t be worth it because of all the cameras. You’d get caught and they just did it for the thrill. Steve even gave stolen jewelry to his mom. Slacker said he has given stolen stuff to girls but could not give it to his mom.
Have you ever done it? What is your shoplifting story?
I have totally done it by mistake you know walked out with sunglasses on my head or bottled water on the bottom of the shopping cart! On purpose? Not from a store. I did recently lift a liquor bottle and a few beers from some guys at a street event they never even noticed.
This is kind of embarrassing but maybe you can help...I have a FWB and the last time we were having relations, he blurted out "I love you." Then, after our time together, instead of the usual see ya later, he kissed me goodbye and has been talking to me like I'm his girlfriend. I'm freakin’ out! Is this my mind playing tricks on me or did something change without me knowing? Uuugh...HELP!
Slacker has never had a FWB and can’t imagine having relations without kissing. Sometimes an FWB turns into a relationship. She didn’t say she didn’t like it. Slacker thinks that she likes him and is unsure how to say it.
Steve doesn’t believe in love he thinks it is a chemical thing. It is the worst time to say “I Love You” is during the throws of passion. She should dump this guy they had rules and he broke them.
Should she talk to him? Call the whole thing off? What should she do?
When people are that intimate their emotions can run high. It is not a surprise that he is having those feelings. If he has those feelings and you don’t call it off because you will hurt him more if you continue the relationship.

You could not be making everyone else more uncomfortable.
More Americans than ever are dissatisfied with the products and services they buy.
A study showed 56 million American households experienced at least one problem during the past 12 months and about $76 billion in revenue was at stake for the businesses involved.
Satisfaction is no higher than reported in 1976. People are frustrated that there are too many automated response menus, there aren't enough customer-care agents, they waste a lot of time dealing with the problem, and they have to contact the company an average of four times to get resolution. Some of the findings of the survey include:
--The amount of people reporting customer problems went up from 32 percent in the 1976 study, to 45 percent in 2011, and then 50 percent in 2013.
--The number of households experiencing customer rage went up from 60 percent just two years ago to 68 percent this year.
--We're yelling and cursing at customer-service representatives more when dealing with the worst problems, with yelling up from 25 percent in previous rage studies to 36 percent now, and cursing up from 7 to 13 percent.
--The type of product most often responsible for enraging us is cable/satellite TV.
--Though many people associate the government with customer-service issues, 98 percent of the most serious problems stemmed from private companies.
--Despite the rise of the internet, people are still 11 times more likely to complain via phone than web.
--Customer-complaint posting on social-networking sites, such as Facebook, has nearly doubled from 19 to 35 percent since 2011.
--Most of those who reported a complaint - 56 percent - say they got absolutely nothing as a result, up 9 percentage points since 2011.
--When companies added free remedies, such as an apology, to any other monetary relief they gave customers, satisfaction doubled from 37 to 74 percent.
--If the customer was satisfied or at least pacified, he or she only told an average of 10 to 16 people about the problem, but if customers were left dissatisfied, they told an average of about 28 people.
Slacker worked retail before. It drives me crazy when he sees someone putting steak sauce on their premium steaks. If you have a major food allergy do the research before you go into the restaurant. Slacker says he is not the over pronouncer guy he just pronounces them correctly not with an accent or anything.
Steve says it should say that the customer is always a moron not right. Steve has never worked in the service industry. Steve is the guy that asks for a burger in any restaurant or alfredo in a fancy Italian place.
Little D says that Slacker is the over pronouncer guy when they are out at a sushi place. Every place has policies that are set in stone and people think that since they are in a hurry, or because it is the holidays, or you think you are super special that you should break those rules for them. Then they ask for the manager and the manager says the same thing and then they listen to them. I’m not going to risk my job for you!
If you work in the service industry you get to complain. What is your biggest complaint against the customers?
The worst is when they try to pray for you and want to hold your hand right there in the middle of the restaurant while they loudly pray for you!! Then as if that wasn’t terrible enough and I put up with it anyways they want to give you one of those mini bibles or a fake million dollar bill that says “The million dollar question” “Does Jesus love you?” as your TIP!! That is the biggest thing for me!!
I'm Sorry by Slacker And Steve,posted Dec 4 2013 6:22PM
It's never too late to say, "I'm sorry" – and now one man has lifted a huge burden off his shoulders. In the late 1970s, 18-year-old Michael Goodman wanted to prove to his buddies that he was tough by mugging another teenager on the steps of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Goodman spotted Claude Soffel, reached into his pocket, and swiped his bus pass. However, cops saw what he'd done and cuffed him. He was eventually sentenced to three weeks of community service. But it wasn't over for him. Goodman says he spent the rest of his life feeling horrible about what he had done, and now, thanks to Facebook, he can finally put it behind him. While reading comments about a New York bagel shop on a Facebook page, he noticed the name Claude Soffel and posted an apology to him the comments section. He wrote, "You may not remember this, but a long, long time ago I walked up the steps of [the museum] one afternoon, trying to look like a tough guy and saw you standing there at the top of the steps. I walked up to you and mugged you for your bus pass." He adds, "Finally I can say I'm very sorry that you had to go through that crap that day long ago.” Soffel later accepted his apology saying, "Clearly you’re a 'bigger man' today. Memory is a funny thing. I recognize your name now as well. Any man who draws a line for himself [and says], ‘Today I step forward for myself, my family, and humanity’ is a hero to me. So let us now, jointly, put this in its proper place, behind us.” Goodman tells the New York Post that a very large weight has been lifted off his shoulders.
Slacker thinks it cool. Slacker is having a huge family rift and would like it to be over after 10 years. He is not sorry for what started it but is sorry that it has lasted so long and gone so far. I don’t even understand why we are here. I can’t even point my finger at why we don’t talk anymore. I miss my brother dearly.
Steve robbed a guy of tens of thousands of dollars of booze. He was insured though. If it happens to me it is different. Steve thinks apologize is not the word to use. You should say I’m sorry. It’s therapeutic to say you are sorry for something you know was wrong. Get it off your chest.
Is there something you've done that you need to apologize for?
I want to apologize to my old best friend we aren’t friends anymore per his choice through drama from his jealous pregnant girlfriend. I lashed out too quickly in an immature manner that was foolish and wrong. I stooped to her level and that is not my style. He needed me to be an adult as I always am. I was just tired of the stupidity that he constantly involves himself with. I’m sorry for not being the friend you needed.
I'm writing you for some advice about breaking up with a friend. We used to be really close and did everything together. Then, she got pregnant and had a baby. Now she's always busy and when she can make time to get together, it's all about her baby. Instead of trying on dresses at the mall, it's all bathroom breaks for diaper changes, breast feeding in the food court, and stops at baby stores. I can't stand it! That's how it is everywhere we go. She went from the girl I could have some fun with to the total mom type. Should I tell her I can't be friends with her because she makes everything about her baby, or do I just slowly fade out of her life? Thanks for the help guys!
Slacker says that she should confront her. You can suggest a solution like offer to help pay for a baby sitter. Friendship is about pretending that you care about things even when you don’t. Either you are really friends or you’re not.
Steve says that segregation lies here. There are the people that have kids and the ones that don’t. You lose a lot that you used to have in common. When you are still single your life is still about partying and having fun. Someone needs to break it off because one of them made a life decision and the other didn’t. They don’t fit together anymore there worlds collided.
Whose side are you on? What advice do you have for Amber?
I think that a baby is a life changing event and your friendship is never going to be the same again. Nothing will ever come before that baby now not ever, not you, not a shopping trip, nothing! She has to get used to being a mom, the first time is the worst. Your whole life revolves around that child. Ask your friend to go do specific girls only no baby things. “Hey we should go to see a show or go out for a girl’s night as a break from the baby you deserve it being a mom is hard work.”
Conducting a science experiment on the radio?! We have been checking horoscopes for the last 3 months. That’s right we actually worked for this story. This is how it works, people go to a website in the morning and as they go through their day they notice things pertaining to that horoscope. Have you ever done it in reverse and gone back to a major event and read that day’s horoscope to see if it says anything about it in the horoscope? We asked for people to call in if they had an epic event like babies, proposals, accidents, promotions, etc. We looked back into our archive to see if the horoscope predicted it or not.
Slacker (Aries) read a horoscope dated back to 10/11 on a day when he and Steve gotten into an argument. The horoscope said on both sides that they would be fighting with co-workers. While it is still vague it is still relevant.
Steve (Sagittarius) thinks astrology is bunk. Horoscopes were invented 1,000 years ago yet the star’s positions have all moved in the sky. Steve says that today they would all be off by one.

Has a horoscope ever proved true on something major in your life?
My day today: It was snowing this morning it took me 1 hour and 45 min to get to school. It was my last day at I am now a graduate. I had my exit interview with the school director and told her all the ways I think they could improve the program. I am now on a scary journey to find a job and start a new life fighting for a dream with so many others doing the same. It was a bittersweet day because I’m going to miss my new friends but I am excited for it's finish.
My Horoscope today Virgo: Dive deep. This isn't a day to stay in shallow waters. This is a day to go beyond your normal limits. Although there may be a great emotional charge accompanying everything you do, let this be the excitement that fuels your passion and not the reason to stop. Getting started may be tough, and you may want to spend the day in bed. Once you get going, it may be hard to slow down.
My Horoscope today Libra: You may think only advanced surfers can handle the big waves. But how are you going to improve your ability if you don't test your limits? This is your day. Take control and push beyond your boundaries. You'll find validation. This is one of your fantastic "up" times when you're glowing with passionate radiance that showers light on the rest of the world. (courtesy of horoscope.com)
Pitbulls by Slacker and Steve,posted Dec 3 2013 7:34PM
Ex-NFL star Plaxico Burress is being sued by his neighbors in New Jersey after his dog carried out a vicious attack. Burress played wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Jets and New York Giants. He has a mansion in New Jersey and the attack happened near his home. According to Burress' neighbor, his pitbull inflicted serious and permanent injuries to her head, body and limbs after it got loose and attacked her. Her lawsuit is asking for unspecified damages. Her husband is also part of the suit. He claims the attack has caused him to lose out on the "services" and "companionship" of his wife.

What is your "I Thought It Was Gone Forever" story?
Yi! My boyfriend and I have decided to move in together after 6 years together. He is adamant that we should rent, but I want to buy a house. I think that in the 6 years we have been together, we have spent enough nights together to know that we can live together. He says that since we've never lived together that we should rent first to see how it goes. He says that no matter how long you've been together, there is always things you don't know about the other person until you live together. What do you think? After this long, is renting or buying a good idea?
