And we're off!



jk. That thread blew up.

Yeah, a lot of people jumped all over me for the bread and butter thing, but I thought the cupcake and doughnut stuff was much weirder.

For what it's worth, my husband still butters his bread all at once AND cuts up his entire meal before eating it. And I still haven't said anything about it to him.

Tacky vs. not tacky..


I can't STAND the word tacky. I think the word of choice should be..different. Just because you wouldn't do something doesn't make it tacky. I've been told I am tacky and I find it offensive.

I was waiting for someone to mention Breastfeeding. That's a doozie.

It was more about how you eat your buttered bread in public, if my memory serves me correctly. A Great One!

Here's my top ten, in no particular order:
1. Covering your plate. Can't believe that one was simplified to wedding or wedding etiquette. It's in a class all it's own.
2. Parenting. Seriously, any parenting, from free range to helicopters, and everything in between.
3. Requests for medical advise or tips.
4. Immunizations. Maybe that should be included in parenting, but again, it's in a class all it's own.
5. Birthing 'styles'.
6. Facebook is evil vs. Facebook is the best thing since sliced bread.
7. Cellphones for Kids.
8. How to get out of debt or deal with a sudden debt. Someone WILL look up your vacation history or note that you are posting from your smart phone!
9. The "right" age to get married.
10. Scooters and Strollers.

What are snowflake children lol. Must have missed that!

It gets pretty heated about non Disney resort folk using the Disney transportation at DTD and SSR. The type of thread you open with one eye and winch in pain...oh you are going to get a pm from the mod .. So personal.. How do these threads go from valid points to remarks about people's appearances is beyond me... And still she's glued to it lol..

I am another who is stumped by "coffee" as an often controversial topic here

The ones I notice most (and I pretty much stick to the CB) are (in no particular order):

1. Should kids have cell phones?
2. What constitutes bullying? (both in topics about bullying and in ANY topic in which the OP doesn't like people who do not agree with them).
3. How much reach should school have into life? (allowed to monitor facebook? How many hours of homework? vacations excused? etc)
4. What is or is not okay for a wedding (especially destination weddins and cover your plate topics).
5. How old is old enough to stay home alone? Or in a car alone? etc

Leashes--on kids. I don't know that dog leashes have ever been an issue. Which is a bit of a surprise, in all honesty.

People fishing for handouts around the holidays. Honey baked ham was one thing I recall. And there was something about spilled laundry detergent...

Brew yourself a fresh pot of coffee, clear your calendar for the rest of the day, search "coffee" on this forum or the Cruise Line Forum, and start reading.

I'm sure it has come up from time to time, I just haven't seen it as a frequently recurring theme. If i have to search for it when I read here daily, then I am thinking it is not, to me, a very big theme

Oh yes! That is a big one.
