    Posted 07/18/2011 05:29:00 EDT

    This is a tricky one. Personally, I prefer when people use terms like "crazy" or "whackjob" as opposed to making tiresome, and usually incorrect, armchair diagnoses. I'm sick of every person being cal more »

    My husband does most of the cooking. I don't mind cooking, but he truly enjoys it. The more steps and ingredients, the better! So I let him do his thing, I do the dishes, and when I do have to cook, I more »

    Unfortunately, some people are too competitive to play a casual game without cheating or getting upset if they do not win. I would talk to her privately, in person, away from the group. Go to coffee o more »

    Ha ha ha ha! The more you hate her and call her a freak, the more her fans love her. And the harder she laughs, all the way to the bank. Just like Elvis, The Beatles, Madonna, The Sex Pistols and Blac more »

    I've encountered this problem, and the solution I came up with is to say "I'm sorry, I'm having trouble understanding you. Can you speak a little slower?" It's also important to change the conversatio more »

    I don't think calling a "spouse free" night or weekend is going to help. I have a straight female friend who doesn't like to do anything without her husband. This is irritating to me, because when I s more »
