Would it make the language easier to learn and actually help communication?


I dunno, i just had the half-baked idea while driving back from lunch.


Sounds like the logic behind Common Core.

Well I just had someone from "Microsoft" call to tell me my computer has errors and when I said to please not call back, she called me a moron!

She called me another name too but I couldn't understand that one!

Is there a place I can report these unwanted calls?

The FTC's website has a complaint form in the Do-Not-Call section. Even if you can't identify the caller's number with caller ID (blocked, unknown) you can enter the date and time they called.

They follow the same process as the ones with the full info.

Ignore.


Can someone stop Rachael from calling me?

A CU, Where Regs Don't Apply
We send out birthday cards and balloons to our kid's club members every year. We had a parent call in, furious that we would send out a choking hazard and try to kill their kid. It's our fault that they took the balloon, threw it away, and their kid dug it out and put it in his mouth.

I'm deeply sorry we failed to secure your garbage can. I will mail your kid a "get well" balloon as soon as possible!

Just received that same call. Unfortunately my coworker already gave him my email address crazy
Although I do agree he was entertaining to listen to.

This issue with Bobbi Kristina Brown has really gotten to me. That poor kid didn't stand a chance.

I don't like their plans to pull the plug on Whitney's death day...that's just weird.

Both the Brown's and the Houston's agreed with it. They claim as a way to keep mother and daughter together.

I will not pass judgement on this.

Sure seems like Bobby Brown was a big part of her untimely demise...but who knows the truth?

I think it's bizarre he celebrated his BD while she is on her death bed.

Other than that, I've seen very little surrounding the actual event..pre/during/post other than the BF is being investigated.

I don't watch enough tv apparently?

Who knows if he "celebrated" his birthday or just went out to eat as it had been reported that he does not live in Atlanta.

Supposedly the celebration turned violent and cops were called. Someone ended up with stitches.

Seems strange to me too that they would remove life support on the anniversary of Whitney's death. But the whole darn thing is strange. Pretty sure if my mother had died from a drug overdose in a bathtub, I would not ingest drugs (allegedly) and then climb in a bathtub.

Yeah...it was more than a dinner. wink

Anyone so far over the edge as to commit suicide can't be accountable for how...we don't know how badly she's handled her mother's death...I could actually see the 'repeat'.

If they were, in fact, suicides.

Yes I suppose if it was intentional, that would explain the similarities.
