@Phoenix32890,
Since voting on thums is a matter of interest,
let the record indicate that I did not cast a thum vote,
and the reason that I colored word "not" is exploration
and experimentation with the new site and its features.

I might also note that I have never committed the conduct complained of; (more experimentation).

I 'm still trying to figure out how to use the quote function.

Under some limited circumstances,
I have demanded that people not shout so loudly
into their cell fones, as to render other speakers inaudible.
(still testing)

@DrewDad,

AGREED, about keeping down the noise.
I don 't care whether the kid whines or wines, as long as he keeps the noise within reason.

I don't know whether thay love extravagant affection or not;
maybe some do and others don 't.

On occasion, I 've had girlfriends ask to take their very young children
( not geneticly related to me ) along to dinner in good restaurants.
I agreed, on condition that if the baby screams uncontrollably,
that I will pay the check and we will leave immediately, if he does not shut up.

David - I'm assuming you said it a little nicer than what you just expressed or that if that is the way presented, you did not have a second date. Laughing

@Phoenix32890,
This is exactly the part that I am agreeing with - noisy, distracting behaviour. Of any type by anyone. I find it inconsiderate to not notice how you're affecting others. Facial expressions and body language are dead giveaways. I'll vote this up, just to try and even it out. Smile

Every few minutes I had to be subjected to the loud baby talk, and the noisy kisses that the woman kept giving the baby.

Now I am not heartless, and I don't mind a person showing affection to a baby, but enough is enough. I think it is a matter of proportion.

@Phoenix32890,
First, I don't see that it's thumbed down "so heavily," it's at zero right now. Was it in negative numbers at some point?

Second, I'll cop to giving it a thumbs down--two reasons:

a) I read it thru once and thought, "Yeah, that's about enough of that topic, I wouldn't want to read it again, I doubt anything new will be brought to the table. I might as well use the thumbs down the way I've seen Craven suggest numerous times(!!)," namely, using it to remove a topic you aren't interested in from your view. I figgered we'd all be aware that it's not a popularity thing--I mean, it's been made clear that the idea is to customize your view so you don't have to scroll by topics you aren't interested in... I think we're all going to need to realize that the votes our topics get don't tell us anything about how people feel about us personally. (Oh God, I can just imagine all the complaints we're gonna to be seeing from people who felt unpopular even on the old a2k, where there really was very little way of telling. Imagine how fussy people are going to get now that there are actual numbers to complain about! Laughing That's gonna get old.)

and b) I have PMS. It's just going to be a fact of life around here now: you're all going to have to deal with PMS voting from me. Once a month you'll probably ALL be on ignore. But at least now everyone will have something to commiserate with Mr. C about someday at an a2k meetup. Smile

Almost every morning, I go to the local donut/coffee shop to read my paper and meet up with some regulars to spend some social time. Once in awhile, especially now with school vacation, we get families with youngsters who come in and talk and laugh so loud it's hard to enjoy our morning coffee. It's not a huge place, and seats 12 max. I know this doesn't fall under "excessive public affection," but what ever happened to discipline and consideration for others by our children?

@cicerone imposter,
c.i.- Well it is related to my later point, that of invasion of personal space. Teenagers can sometimes be obnoxious, but I have often seen just as annoying behavior from adults.

@Phoenix32890,
I know how you feel. My sisters boyfriend which is her baby daddy always kisses my nieces on her mouth. He even let her suck on his lip one time which i think is gross and something he should deffinatly not be doing. She's only 4 months old and he started kissing her on her lips like when she was 2 months. My grandma told me he put his tongue in her mouth once which i think is DISGUSTING and if I see it happen somethings going down.

That's completely outrageous and inappropriate.

I had in mind ladies with whom I was very familiar, on a long-term basis,
in particular one who was living with me at the time.

@roger,
Rog- Not only inappropriate, but IMO, borders on child abuse. The parent of the niece should tell the bf to stop this behavior, immediately. If I were the parent, I would not allow my child to be alone with this man.
