    What really seems to work with a lot of clients is sending them a past due invoice with a nice red PAST DUE stamp on the outside of the envelope.

    That whole public shaming thing works. ...

    I just put my ancient Dane down last Saturday. I don't have a 'come to you' service, so I had to get her in the truck and drive her to the vet.

    I didn't bring her body home, so my poor Collie boy...

    How much you payin'? ;)

    I work in the public sector again, and The Public hasn't gotten any better since I jumped ship all those years ago to go with a private company. In fact, they've gotten...

    You're in love with the idea of who you think this guy is, while ignoring the fact that in actuality he's a Grade-A player.

    Stop making excuses for his heinous behaviour. If he had wanted you,...

    It's weirdly compelling. I don't think I have a favorite as the whole ensemble is deliciously strange.

    Took me awhile to reconcile Bob with Archer though, because they're both voiced by the...

    There are BBs wholly devoted to political rantings, erm, discussions, so I'm not sure why the nutbags, erm, passionate debaters, don't take themselves to those instead of crazying up a horse BB.

    The two adult hens I introduced were accepted readily enough after a skirmish or two, but my two new pullets are still being bullied and it's been several weeks. Even the older roo goes after them....

    Agreed TrotTrot, and that was prime, uncaring asshattery that would have me changing vets at the speed of light, but everything else people are screaming about is silly.
  9. Doesn't matter what professional field you're in,...

    Doesn't matter what professional field you're in, someone always thinks it should be cheaper.

    I work for a glass company and people are always bitching about the prices. Well sweetie, you're...

    Not your circus, not your monkeys. Move your horse. You can't worry about other people's horses if they don't care enough to make sure their animals have proper care.

    Another of my childhood/young adult icons gone.

    Godspeed, Casey.

    So basically, you gave her an untrained, unwanted, spoiled brute of a horse, and she put in her time, effort and money to train him, and you consider that a lease? Um, no. That was a giveaway, with...

    My deepest condolences.

    I lost my father in 2011 and my mother in 2013, and my brothers and I are still reeling from their loss.

    At least my parents were in their 80s and had lived a good,...

    We here in the southern part of Virginia do not claim NOVA. We consider it to be nothing more than DC Extended. :lol:

    I live southeast of Lynchburg, and you'd better believe we consider ourselves...

    I'm pretty sure you have your closure. She's done with you, and wants no part of any reconciliations. She owes you nothing.

    Her life is about HER, not you. Stop trying to make it about you...

    Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. It was beyond awful. It should have been canceled after the pilot episode.

    I'm short, fat, middle aged, can curse like a drunken sailor when necessary, and although I've owned and ridden horses for most of my adult life, consider myself a beginner-intermediate rider.

    I'd be lying if I said that scenario goes away quickly. It will, but it takes time. How much time really depends on you and your mental state. For me, it took about 6 months before I stopped...

    Love my 39 y/o Stubben Siegfried. All of the comments I've received on it have been positive, but I ride with adults who have to work for a living just like me, and understand the value of a true...

    Pretty obvious you've never had the dubious 'pleasure' of working retail, OP.

    Your self absorbed, entitled attitude is par for the course with people who have absolutely no clue what it's like to...

    I knew from a very young age that I didn't want children. I like them and enjoy their company, but never felt the need to procreate. As a member of a very large, loud, and prolific Irish family...

    J. K. Simmons. Have no idea why, because he's rather ordinary looking. I just find him strangely desirable.

    RDJ has always been a looker, so not sure why anyone would even consider him...

    So is dying from riding or being around horses. Since you're so concerned and angry, I expect you'll be giving up YOUR passion so as not to be 'selfish' to your family.

    It's a horrible tragedy,...
