That director deserves a swift kick to the nads. That is so awful. Your poor grandma! Honestly, why is he working with the elderly if he's going to be such a jerk?

Does the director have a boss? I would tell on him.

If I were closer, I'd contact them to speak with someone about the issue. At least stand up for her.

I really wish my aunt (her daughter) would do it. She's an ass kicker but she's an accountant and nothing will get her away from her desk this time of year.

I hope she goes back in two weeks when Mr prick is gone.

Found an email address!

Anyone care to help me craft a letter? I'm fairly pissed off right now, but I don't want that tone to come through!

I want to know what happened and why it happened (although, I'm not sure they have any right to disclose that information to me?).

Ok, how does this sound:

Dear Mr. Poopy Pants*,

Good afternoon! My name is Best Granddaughter* and I'm writing to you on behalf of my grandmother, Wonderful Lady*, who is a member of your facility. I just got off the phone with her and she relayed to me that she was recently told it was better if she didn't attend the weekly canasta game anymore. She is terribly upset, and at nearly 93 years of age, this has been her only source of social activity each week for several years now. The details of what happened are unclear (to me) and I was hoping someone could shed some light. I'd like to know what can be done so we can rectify this situation.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day!

Sincerely,
Best Granddaughter*

I approve of the current letter.
Sent!

I changed the last part to: "I'd love for us to work together to rectify this situation."

I'll report back as the drama unfolds on the next episode of As the Stomach Turns...
- Seek first to understand, then to be understood.

I like it. You did good.

I have a slight change.

If this situation is not rectified, please know my curly hair friends will be coming to 1) kick your ass 2) and then will be happy to sit and learn the proper way to play canasta with my grandmother.

since im a dumbass i can help with the ass kicking

These are some beautiful poached eggs:

Great technique for home (in a restaurant sous vide is the best, most practical way to poach eggs)!

That's what I thought too. He also said I needed to come in every 6-8 weeks for a cut. Who gets a haircut every 8 weeks?!

I'm lucky to go twice a year! Although if I had someone I really liked and it didn't cost a fortune I'd probably go a little more often. So far I haven't found either of those things with the two people I've tried in the two years we've lived here. $70 for a haircut is just too much.

$70? Is that the going rate up by you? I do go every 8 weeks or so, though I sometimes stretch it out to 10 with a bang trim in between, but I pay $40.

I couldn't care less about the Deva styling, but I do like a dry cut for curls if it's done right. My hair did not look good when I left there, but after styling it myself I was happy with it.

My neighbor said there is someone she's gone to that says she cuts curly hair and she charges around $40 so maybe she's a little more sane. For me $70 is crazy, especially for a mediocre experience. When I only indulge in a haircut a few times a year it would be nice to enjoy the experience.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
RB, I am soooo angry for your grandmother!! That is such a despicable thing for someone to do to her.

Your letter is great and I hope it helps get some resolution for her. Canasta is such a fun game, shame on them for ruining it for her.

It must be Friday because my logic is already in weekend mode.

I was calling AT&T for info about the cost of making an international call without an international plan.

CS: It's going to be two eighty-four a minute.

Me: Two hundred eighty-four dollars??

CS: No, you simple child.* Two dollars and eight-four cents.

Me: Oh. That makes more sense.

CS: Yes. Yes, it does.

Ooh, I always meant to take one of those classes. I want to learn smocking, and I've forgotten how to do zippers and buttons. What's the focus of your class? And why did they move from Eastgate, disappear for a few years, and then reopen at Golden Gate?

@ L.A.: my male stylist is so stodgy that I'd fall out of my chair if he showed up with rhinestones on his jeans. I've never even seen him in jeans, in fact.

Gives a great cut, though. And I've just about got my impression of his voice down.

I bought a new machine and the Viking store offers one free class. It's a basic class about how to use your machine, how to hem jeans, buttonholes and zippers. I'm also going to pin 2 projects and get some feedback. You can pretend like we bought the machine together and crash, LOL

I'm not crashing, silly. But if you're interested, I'll meet up with you afterward and you can have my Ulta coupon if you want it. I've got to stay away from that place.

Ulta is the devil
Who knew that:

"No dogs allowed"

really means:

"Disregard the leash law and the posted 'No dogs allowed' signs and let your dogs run wild here"?

I mean, who KNEW???!!! Thanks for clarifying the ambiguity surrounding the issue!!!

Perhaps it means everyone else's dogs, not yours.

This just in: Disagreement with particular laws and rules doesn't give you license to disregard them. If you don't like it, work to get the law changed.

Dood, get over it; there's no time limit on lurking.
