Hey there pal! How are you? Wow that's a nice shirt! I suggest you stop kicking my chair if you want it to remain in one piece.

Avoid sounding like a dick to the parents? Lure the kid to the bathroom with candy. Tell him in a slow, clear voice: "i don't know who you are, but if you stop kicking my chair, that will be the end of it. If you dont, I will find you. And I kick your ass."

Or, just turn around and stare at the parents over your seat. They'll get the message.

One more kick and I'm throwing down

Ask him if he knows the sound of one hand clapping.

Say nothing. Punch it in the face.

You can't, you are a dick

Or just punch mom in the nose

@C1 that first suggestions sounds like a good way to end up on a list

"Oh you have a problem with me kicking your seat?! You're my bitch for the next two hours! Kick, kick, kick, kick"

Friends, I highlighted and denied working late because of my child. I was performing good but not in the eyes of my manager.

Can I expect some increment or what will happen to variable? Please guide me saviours!! Also my coach is supporting me and has given a very good rating.

Hi moms - Can anyone share what you do with 2 - 3 YO on weekends? We are usually catching up on house chores and I feel my kid runs aimlessly around the house most of the day.

My kid is terrified of people, going out after being locked inside the house for more than a year. We took him to the beech, play area with kids and he kept yelling back home the entire time.

United Platinum here - got an offer to pay ~$6k for upgrade to 1K. Thoughts on if it’s worth it? Already belong to Club (United Infinite) and have CLEAR credit through Amex Platinum. Still have 40 plus points from hitting Platinum last year. Unlikely to travel for business until late 2Q at earliest but have 2-3 transcontinental flights planned for summer and 1 transatlantic for fall. Maybe another 1-2 shorter trips this year as well. I imagine I’d use my extra plus points on all these.

My in-laws currently live nearby and they have been so wonderful with date nights, weekday babysitting, etc now that we have a 10 month old. We will probably have baby number 2 right after husband graduates, which is also when we want to move cities.

We would probably move 3-4 hours away from them, where we have most of our network (but not immediate family).
