I definitely remember how it started - someone posted a link to the rachel ray garbage bowl that costs $30 - if you've never seen them they're a bowl you put out when you're cooking to throw scraps and garbage in. Very innovative. And then everyone was like haha that's silly. AND THEN. Someone was like "this is great, I don't always want to go over to the garbage when I'm cooking" and someone else was like "well you can achieve the same thing with a regular not expensive bowl" and other person was like "I don't have bowls" and everyone was like "you don't have bowls?" and then lackabowl was all "NO NOT EVERYONE HAS BOWLS"

So now we don't even need the thread.


I wish I could sig this... ALL OF IT.

crasshole at animal care and control won't take his dogs back because they were neutered as per law. He's talking about suing them for destroying his property. I'm enraged.

I have a small covered area just outside my front door, and a rather large spider has build a lovely web pretty much spanning the entire "patio", about three feet away from my door. I don't really use my front door and also I hate all people, so I've let the spider stay and have lovingly nicknamed it my Guard Spider. Unfortunately, I have a customer coming to pick up an order at 8am tomorrow, which means I'm going to have to relocate Guard Spider. I'm upset about this for three reasons: 1) While I'm happy to let said spider live outside my door, I have no desire to actually interact with it. At all. 2) I feel terribly guilty about the distress being moved will cause it, and also about tearing down the web it has worked so hard on. 3) No more Guard Spider keeping the creepers and Jesus-folk away from my door.

It's probably not okay to just ask my customer to meet me in the alley around the back of my house, right?

maybe you can just act like you didn't know the spider was there?

But what if she doesn't notice and walks into the web? Also, there is literally no way to get to the front door through the web. I'm not kidding when I say it's totally blocking the entire door.

I think we need a photo of this web. I always feel a bit torn about destroying spider webs. It takes them so darn long to make them and I tend not to notice them until they have put months of work in. But by then it really looks like my house is a shittip.

I ate a muffin and a big plate of pancakes for breakfast. Now I'm exhausted and want to go to bed again.

more spider talk! my husband is away until tomorrow ... he was not here last night, I woke suddenly, then settled ... BUT when I woke again, turned on the bedside lamp I saw a GIANT black spider on the skirting board staring at me. My arm itched ... I looked at it, 2 swollen bits / bites on the inside of my forearm which settled as I watched them (okay I may have dozed off for a bit) into two red dots ... I had been bitten! by THAT spider! Enraged I threw one of my bedroom slippers at it ... it then scuttled behind the headboard.
I then rose and scuttled off myself to the guest room where I spent the rest of the night.
I have visited the bedroom several times today, even opening WIDE the window in case it wished to go elsewhere with ease ... no sign of it ...
I do not like spiders, they are too fast, often on the ceiling where they might fall into my hair AND they have 8 legs to my 2 which seems rather unfair.
My husband rang today & when hearing that I had been bitten by a spider still loose in the house he calmly said there are NO spiders with killer bites in the U.K. then went to something to speak of something else ...

He said he might be back this evening ... good ... then HE can deal with capturing it on a bowled plate then releasing it back into the wild ...

I love you.

I had what I can only believe to be a few nasty spider bites on my leg a month or so ago. Mosquito bites don't usually stick around or itch so furiously on me. These were angry red bumps that itched like the devil for a couple of weeks. Why spiders gotta be biting us? Why spiders not just keep to themselves and leave us alone?

I didn't get one of the whole thing (I wish I had now), but here's a terrible flash picture of the Guard Spider and some of its web. The entire web was about 3' across, attached to the wall of my house on one side (which extends beyond the front door), and a post on the other side, with its center right at eye level.

Picture of a spider!
Spoiler: show

Thank you for putting that under spoiler tags, but morbid curiosity made me look anyway, and my heart rate sped up. Guard Spider is HUGE.

I had a spider who lived between my windows for around three months. I loved him! I totally left him alone and watched his activities. One day he just never came back and I was actually very sad. I still sometimes wonder what happened to him and hope he had a good life livin' in my bedroom window. I even wrote a poem about him years later.

Your spider is awesome like mine was!

That's a cool pic Poopiebitch. How big is the spider itself? It looks gigantic. I think I might sabotage the steps on my porch or put a wet paint sign* so then maybe the customer will just call when they get there "Uh, I'm here but can't get onto your porch?" And then you can sidle them around to the alley. (This is sounding very sinister, but desperate times...)

*might require some actual painting or painting props to be convincing

So, the plot thickens. I got up this morning with the intention of moving Guard Spider, but it (and any trace of its web) was already gone. I assumed at the time that my husband had moved it last night while I was busy, because we'd had a discussion yesterday about who would be the one to do it. Pick-up goes as planned, blah blah blah... eventually my husband got up and it turns out he didn't move the spider.

You guys, Guard Spider moved out on its own and didn't even leave a note. There was no sign of foul play.

It was about 2 1/2" leg tip to leg tip (so not massive, but not tiny either).

Spiders larger than 2 1/2" are not massive; they are horror movie extras.

Ok, that is one hugeass spider. Should not have looked just before bed.

I'm seriously starting to reconsider leaving my aunt unsupervised in the house. I came home just a few minutes ago and every door in the house was wide open including the back door. It has been raining most of the day and it is damn cold so now my house is like an ice-box. Then a large part of me is thinking she is intentionally doing these things so I don't leave the house. I'm going to be having one serious conversation with her tomorrow morning.

So a couple of months ago I received someone else's iherb order my mistake. I was expecting an order of my own which did arrive a few day later, so I accepted it from the post office assuming it was mine. I brought it home, opened it and nope, not my order - but the customer's name and address was on the invoice inside. I was completely stressed out by this, and not sure what to do. I just wanted it out of my apartment, it felt weird having someone else's personal things. I thought I should contact iherb, but I did not want to get some poor overworked, underpaid person in trouble, so I just eliminated all indication of my name and address from the box, put a note inside to say I had received this order by mistake without including my name and just paid myself to have it shipped express to the rightful owner.

Now my usual iherb order is late, and although this happens occasionally, I live in Canada and sometimes it's held up at customs - I'm having paranoid thoughts that iherb thinks I stole the other person's stuff and is punishing me by denying me my deva vitamins - oh geez. Anyway I'm sure my order will arrive eventually, but in the back of my mind- I have failed the iherb test and have been blacklisted.

I highly doubt you've been blacklisted from iherb. I recently had an order from iherb take three weeks longer than usual because of customs, and it surprised me because it was the first time that happened. I usually get my stuff from them within a week.

But also, you shouldn't worry about letting a company know they've made a mistake. Companies know that shiitake like this happens and have all sorts of protocols set up for how to correct the mistake. It's not that big a deal. They want their customer to be happy. I've worked at a bunch of companies that pride themselves on customer service and never once has an employee gotten in trouble for making a mistake like this (unless it happens repeatedly, in which case the employee may need retraining).

More likely the person you sent the parcel on to has your order. Let's hope they are sweet enough to forward it on (and not evil enough to just keep it) but they may have already returned it to iherb. You should contact iherb and let them know it hasn't arrived.
