Hmm. We've got two single women talking about cooking children.

Must be close to Halloween.

Which is another thing. A week and a half ago (still September) they had freakin' EGGNOG in the supermarket. Sometimes I think it's a good thing we have gun laws in this country, and sometimes I just wish I could get my hands on a full automatic.

LH, Yes dogs can recognise fear.
Try carrying a couple of dry dog biscuits when hiking. Or people cookies.
If you get scared by an approaching dog throw it a treat and try to speak with authority.

LH - you're a smaller woman, so if you do 'speak with authority', drop your voice a bit - make it come from the lower abdomen. Don't toss the treat AT the dog but in the opposite direction you are going, kind of skipping it along the trail for them to see. If you're hiking with a stick, they might feel the stick is threatening but keep it between you and the dog, stand taller and have your shoulders straighter. If it attacks, be prepared to let if have your jacket or backpack - if the dog is biting your bunched up sweater or your waist pack - well, he isn't biting you. I backed down a pack of about eight wild dogs by picking up a rock and telling the lead dog where I would be throwing that rock and how hard and how his own pack would tear his useless carcass apart. Ok, most of that was to keep myself from acting terrified but dogs are pretty good at understanding intentions and when I walked off at a tangent they relaxed because I was moving off their territory and I relaxed because they weren't following me though I did keep the rock until I got home.

I'm with sealady - I'd rather deal with a vicious dog rather than a vicious child (or a vicious adult for that matter) but mostly because I'm more sure of what a dog will do or attempt to do. With humans, there's no telling.

Yeah, the correct verb there isn't "think", it's "hope." Gretzky says you miss every shot you don't take.

Glad I could help.

Thank you, 2ufo. I appreciate your help. For a year after being attacked by dogs, on hiking trails I stopped and shouted to dog owners as they approached me with unleashed dogs:

"Grab your dog's collar NOW! Control your dog NOW!"

I was terrified. My voice was shrill and filled with fear. I didn't realize this alarmed the dogs. It upset my hiking partners. I didn't care if I upset the dog owners. I got them to control their dogs before they got to me.

Because my hiking partners were upset, I consulted an expert. She echoed your suggestions:

1. Pitch my voice in a powerful, lower register. As an alto singer, this was easy.
2. Stand tall and square my shoulders. Look as big and assertive as possible.
3. Don't stop. This makes the dogs come to me, thinking I want to pet them.
4. Never look strange dogs in the eye. They see this as a threat.
5. Walk strongly past the dogs. Keep going.

This worked.

However, I counter-attacked when one small dog ran toward me barking and growling. I threw my arms into the air and lunged at the dog, hiking pole in hand, shouting loudly in a low voice:


That dog yipped, wheeled around and ran back to the owner. "Good job!" my hiking partner said.

Exactly right LH.
Alto and Grrr.

Waving your arms in a shooing manner is excellent.

Try doing that with an out of control child. lol

the trouble with the awful brats running wild in the supermarket is that smacking just makes them worse and it is not allowed in our country. I blame the preservatives in the food for some of their behaviour. Children are often not taught how to behave in public and run riot. Their parents are often just as ill mannered.

I have lived next door to a screaming brat for two years who acts like he is being murdered. But just reacts to the simplest thing in a very angry manner. He is lucky one of the neighbours has not actually murdered him!!!. He is just bad tempered and loud. Smacking does not help in that situation.

Rant over

Begin rant...

Children who:
Scream on airplanes, trains, buses.
Kick the back of my seat.
Pull down displays in shops.
Throw tantrums.
Stab strangers in the ass with a pencil.

You get my drift.

I had to add one to your list.
Caught a kid about to do exactly that to a friend of mine in Sears.

Jealous people. They are quick to point fingers at somebody else's endless dates. They can't get dates, so they hammer people who can and make up wild bacon about them.

I figure by the time one is 40, they have grown out of their growing pains. How do people still deal with this Much later in their lives? Something smells like Denny's bacon....

bacOnflavOredbacOn, spelled my name wrong and I don't have any bacon.
( I copied and pasted your user name and the zero's ? don't show like yours? I changed them to big O"S, LOL)

So aside from the noisy snack food/foil crackling guy at Barnes and Nobles, a month or so ago, LOL Life is good!
Oh AND my "Boggles my mind" co-worker. Sheesh, how could I forget that? LOL
Oh AND the moron who let the door shut on my lil ol' aunt. Now he was just plain mean.
Aside from this ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ Life is good!

Hmmmm Did I forget anything? ( She scratches her head and ponders)

BTW, I love children. They can be returned, no money back though.

"They can be returned, no money back though."

Not if they're your own. :(
And....when the stork dropped them off...didn't leave any money, either.

What's worse is that the heathens didn't come with any instructions!
Gosh! Even the crap I buy from Taiwan comes with some....course...I can't read's something! :/

Alrighty......guess that was my rant for the day! :)

The baskets that you use at the grocery store instead of a cart. When you're just going to pick up a "few things". Who designed that pos? Invariably one of the few items always needed....bread. It does'nt fit...not even close. Try and put it on top and the basket handles crush it. Nothing quite like squashed bread. :/

I try to avoid the carts because the 10 yr old inside likes to jump on and ride down the isle. Ya'll gotta have some fun while you can. ;)

Girl: I like you.
Me: Thanks
Girl: You're not like most guys I've dated. You're not an ***hole.
Me: Oh..OK that's a good thing I suppose.
Girl: It's really good.

Few weeks later

Girl: I didn't think you were that into me.
Me: Why do you say that?
Girl: Well the guys I dated always *Insert stupid shit here*
Me: OK

Weren't you attracted to me because I'm not like the guys you dated, so why the **** are you freaking out? According to you, your boyfriend cheated on you multiple times and verbally abusive, I'm sorry that I'm not drunkenly calling you at 2 AM looking for sex, I have work the next day. And yes that was recently a real complain from a girl, that I didn't pick up the phone at 2 AM when she drunkenly called me looking for sex on a Wednesday and was upset that I didn't answer because lo and behold I was asleep, mind is ****ing blown.

Dude. Dude. Duuuudeee.

I don't know. Whenever I dated someone that at some point was looking for sex and I was not in the mood, I made a pack with them, that I would oblige to their needs. But when they were not in the mood and I was, that they would then reciprocate. I know, I know its a huge sacrifice, and let them know. Let them know that you could not stay awake the next day at work. Let them know that while driving you almost past out. Let them know that you love a little black dress with no underwear at that place you park before going to that awesome restaurant is so much better when the windows are completely fogged.

She was totally freaked out, like completely freaked out that I didn't answer, to the point that she showed up unannounced the next day at 1:30 AM claiming that I'm ignoring her which I wasn't because I texted her earlier that day explaining my reasons. She then apologized several times, claiming that she's just "weird" and hoped that I wasn't now turned off by her except that moment has completely turned me off, I was so freaked out though that she may stab me in my sleep that I just humored her until she left, I didn't even sleep with her I thought it may be a plot for her to bite my****off mid-coitus and run away with it in her damn mouth while I scream bloody murder. I'm still afraid that I'm going to find a dead bunny boiling on my stove even though I own no pets.

Yeah….this is probably why she thought you weren’t into her, because when she said, “I like you,” you responded “Thanks.” What kind of a response is that??

If you were into her, wouldn’t you respond, “I like you, too,” not “thanks.”
To me that definitely says “not interested.”
