LOL ani, not sure who you're referring to, things can get snarky on some threads for sure. It's easy to be a coward behind the keyboard.

If no one has noticed it, I am certainly not going to go quote them or point it out directly, lololol.

Maybe it is just the way it hit me and several others who have tried to get the person to stop the madness.

Yes, easy to be tough behind the keyboard!!!

Or maybe you just haven't read those posts, lol.

Several of us have been targeted with put downs and condescending language . . . from someone who seems perhaps in a manic phase (or maybe it is just a kid acting out).
I've certainly read them; I don't know how anyone could have missed them. But they're nothing new.

The posters are young, uneducated, and unsuccessful. They see us as living off the fat of the land not realizing that we worked for it. They don't want to work for it; they just want the reward for work. Of course, there are old bums as well. They spent their money on liquor, drugs, gambling, prostitutes, etc. Let them all rot in hell.

I would have to reread to find the snarks. Too lazy, and probably too blonde to have picked up on them. Happily living in my Barbie bimbo world

I LOVE my Cuddle Duds! I bought two new sets this year but haven't bought any in over ten years. I 'discovered' them when I lived in Fairbanks, AK. I figured if they'd work so well up there they'd be perfect for down here and I was right. We aren't nearly as cold as you guys are...low to mid 60s for highs...but I still get chilly. So Cuddle Duds it is! It's often chilly at work too so I wear them under my work clothes.

Speaking of freezing cold and predicted winter storms, my favorite winter item is L.L.Bean flannel lined jeans. I just don't know what size to get this time. I was at their outlet yesterday and got a pair of their khaki jeans with (sigh) elastic on the sides of the waist. Sooner or later we have to give in, I guess.

I may order the same size in the flannel lined jeans and if they don't fit, just return them to the outlet. Then I can shop some more.

DH loves his, he has the flannel and fleece lined. I'm too cheap to spring for the LLB's for myself, got a pair of Schmidts at Tractor Supply at year end clearance. They always get stuck with the smaller sizes not selling so win win for me.

Some of you asked specifically which thread Anifani was referring to. Although she has given me no permission to speak for her, I am pretty sure I know which thread she is talking about, and it is "Broke 60 year old friends". It's very active and hence is already quite long. It didn't get nasty right away, so I don't blame anyone who doesn't want to slog all the way through it just to satisfy their curiosity.

Just to cite an example, there was one suggestion that we posters in the Retirement Forum probably consider the movie "The Purge" to be a pleasant little fairy tale rather than a dystopian nightmare. I just rebutted that one.

Happy New Year, every one!
