Today's Question(s):

When was the last time you said or wanted to say "Not Helping !!!" ?


When my family was at my house for Christmas last weekend my mother kept trying to "help" my grandmother with some things she did not want or need help with, which of course agitated my grandmother...LOL.

Bonus Question:

When was the last time you said or wanted to say "It's about time" ?


Drawing a blank on that one at the moment.

Extra Credit Question:

For those that are single and for those when you were single what is or was a "Dating Deal Breaker" or "Turn off" ?

When someone talks about themselves non-stop or there's no significant conversation (too much awkward silence), body odor or bad breath, being rude or inconsiderate to others, too clingy/needy.

Just for Fun:

Do any of our QOTD family have any New Years Day Traditions ?

My grandmother used to always insist we eat black-eyed peas on New Year's but now that she no longer cooks that has faded away somewhat over the years.

Today's Question(s):


When was the last time you said or wanted to say "Not Helping !!!" ?
The other day at work when one of my coworkers tried to convince me to stand on the top of the ladder to hang something from the ceiling. I told her to wait until our taller coworker came in so he could do it. I don't like the top of the ladder.

Bonus Question:

When was the last time you said or wanted to say "It's about time" ?
I say it all the time. Usually whenever my sister gets out of the shower, since she's in the bathroom a while.

Extra Credit Question:


For those that are single and for those when you were single what is or was a "Dating Deal Breaker" or "Turn off" ?
Arrogance, loud and obnoxiousness/rudeness, poor table manners. There are other things, but it depends on the person and situation. Those are the ones that stand out to me the most.

Watch the ball drop on TV and have a little sparkling-something-alcoholic.

Studedude , I can understand a mechanic having a little grease under their nails but I am talking about the guys that never ever touched anything mechanical

I would say this if someone who is their own worst enemy kept making a mess of any kind and expecting others to help them afterward. After a while you have to be cruel to be kind.

On the other hand, there were a few times this last week when I said: Not another helping. Thanks, but I'm full!

Okay, I misunderstoood this question at first.
Now that I understand my answer is: When doing a minor repair for a family member at his house while he stands nearby making inane suggestions.

Bonus Question:

When the girls at a coffee counter I occasionally visit gave up chatting to each other long enough to wait on customers.

Extra Credit Question:

Too many to mention.

We dance naked in the moonlight....NOT! After Thanksgiving and Christmas, we're mostly all holiday-ed out.

Today in History:
1970 - Paul McCartney sues his bandmates to dissolve the Beatles all you need is lawyers...da, da, da, da, da....

Today is:
National Bicarbonate of Soda Day okay, if you insist
