This Is Insulting

So, have you ever answered the door as a 24 year old, only to be asked “Are your parents home” by some guy who wanted to sell me something?

I just told him “No” so I didn’t have to tell him “No” later.  But that’s just embarrassing.   Worse than being carded for a rated “R” movie, in which 17 is the cut off – but at least they tell theater owners to card up to age 24.

Also, I forgot why web designers curse IE with every fiber of their being until today: the “Minich & Associates” title line that is positioned right where I want it in Firefox is obscuring parts of the photo that I don’t want it to in Explorer, even after moving it in CSS.  (Translation from the Geek: That title doesn’t go where I told it to in Internet Explorer.  It is on top of something I don’t want it to be.)  This is very frustrating.  I wish Explorer played by the rules that everyone else decided to play by.

    Well Brando, at least you’re not occasionally mistaken for Mom when people call! Now that’s embarrassing (oh well, I’ll live)

    No, that used to happen to me too when I was about your age. So there.
