    Posted 01/23/2011 08:06:49 EST

    I have a similar gift problem, only the person is in the family of the person I'm with. The gifts are awful, and clearly cheap. It's like a passive-aggressive thing: she thinks she has to give me gift more »

    Why anyone would want to eat that dead thing he's holding in the photo is beyond me... more »

  • Comment on: Plum Island house demolished after being undermined by ocean

    Posted 01/10/2011 03:49:43 EST

    Jeepers, people…this home was probably built 70 years ago (according to Zillow.com). Things were fine then. The governing bodies granted permission, the streets were already planned out and zoned. W more »

    Posted 01/06/2011 12:50:06 EST

    He didn't value her, and her will reflected her recognition of that. I don't think she died a bitter woman, as some suggest. I think she died knowing what was what. She understood. He was the cause of more »

  • Comment on: Macy's to close Chestnut Hill store; begins clearance sale

    Posted 01/05/2011 09:21:49 EST

    I always disliked that store. It carried clothes that were ugly, and high-priced, and was both too small and too big. It just felt thrown together, and was poorly laid out, like the entire store was a more »

  • Comment on: 'The outlaw-in-law'

    Posted 01/02/2011 08:06:14 EST

    People get away with what they can get away with. This is true for both letter writers. I have found that in cases similar to the brother-in-law, they sometimes really don't know what to do or how to more »

    Posted 12/19/2010 06:38:25 EST

    "so readily cast aside its culture, shaped by poverty and oppression…" Gawd almight, who WOULDN'T want to leave that behind? Let's all get nostalgic for OTHER people, so they can go back to their ba more »

    Posted 12/13/2010 11:12:12 EST

    What's breathtaking to me is how incredibly rude so many of the comments are toward the LW. Downright nasty. Possibly ageist. Such…cackling…from so many. I wonder, if this woman had said this dire more »

  • Comment on: 'Moving pains'

    Posted 12/12/2010 01:36:20 EST

    Apparently the commenter never heard of the phrase "If you can't say something nice, shh, say nothing." more »

  • Comment on: 'Yankee Swap sins?'

    Posted 11/29/2010 08:14:30 EST

    Alpine Yuzu - the Yankee Swap that I watched (but did not participate in) had a similar and unfortunately gender split. The guys all--and I mean all five of them--gave gift cards to the standard store more »

  • Comment on: 'Yankee Swap sins?'

    Posted 11/28/2010 05:05:19 EST

    I think the thing about the "less than $5" Swap items has more to do with the spirit and not the cheapness. Obviously cheap/crappy Swap items is kind of the non-verbal way of saying "F-you and your st more »

  • Comment on: Give me an... "ugh" - The Boston Globe

    Posted 11/28/2010 04:51:43 EST

    One wonders about the socialized sexuality at work here: women in very short skirts who don't make a lot of money prancing about in the cold having to be pretty and look happy and don't effect the out more »

  • Comment on: 'Michigan grandmother bags 5-point buck at age 76'

    Posted 11/26/2010 08:37:59 EST

    This is sad. An old woman who got to live her life, destroys a magnificent animal for what, so she could be the "cool" grandmother? more »

  • Comment on: Three Harvard students, one MIT student are Rhodes scholarship recipients

    Posted 11/22/2010 01:25:29 EST

    @traeyeball - the original title of this was something like "Four Massachusetts Students Win Rhodes Scholarships." In my mind that is clearly a reference to students FROM Massachusetts. You will note more »

  • Comment on: 'Fran Lebowitz talks —

    Posted 11/22/2010 07:39:26 EST

    To think that someone who doesn't care about or for the subject matter of the article expended energy to post a comment.

    Have a nice day, @trendy.

    If you can. more »

  • Comment on: Three Harvard students, one MIT student are Rhodes scholarship recipients

    Posted 11/21/2010 03:44:44 EST

    Weird: none of the Harvard students, nor the MIT student, are FROM Massachusetts. Interesting how the emphasis is on schools in Massachusetts and not the two students from Massachusetts, as noted by t more »

  • Comment on: MFA practices the art of selling out - The Boston Globe

    Posted 11/21/2010 01:29:40 EST

    The MFA is a non-profit organization. It's money has to come from somewhere. And clearly "we" weren't supporting "our heritage" enough to meet its financial obligations. I don't care if the MFA's got more »

    Gays are horrible people…until my son comes out of the closet. All Muslims are terrorists…until one of them shovels me out because I've got a broken leg and can't do it myself. Stem cell use is ba more »

  • Comment on: 'Off with your shoes'

    Posted 11/07/2010 09:07:24 EST

    If someone came to me seeking advice on how to handle lunch with the boss, and came to me because this person thought I was older/wiser/someone to whom she could express her anxiety, I would not begin more »

    Nice to finally see the process work and weed out this nut job. The scary part is that she actually got this far. more »

  • Comment on: 'An ex gets engaged'

    Posted 10/03/2010 08:06:28 EDT

    Respond to the ex in kind (a short text), and let it go.

    I have male friends in my life, but no exes. That "old" relationship sometimes cannot withstand the onslaught of life, i.e., new relationships. more »

    Posted 09/29/2010 07:20:24 EDT

    People, if you don't like opera, if you don't "get" the musical virtuosity of Levine, why are you bothering to comment? more »
