On Ask a Fancy Person: Entry-Level Expensive, Unwanted Guests and the Gratefulness Feedback Loop

@superfluous consonants Yeah, it is literally never too late to send a thank-you note. Especially since between Those Kids Today not ever sending them, and the fact that people who gave you gifts probably know about the pile of crap in your life, I'm willing to bet not one person has been sitting around waiting for it. So it's just a nice surprise if you do send them, even now!

@Luckier It's had a lot of ups and downs over the years, but it's true, the female friendships and the actual growth of characters keeps me coming back.

On Did You Bring Your Dick to the Table?

This does not account for the fact that many women's business outfits do not have pockets! PATRIARCHY.

On George Is the One With the Glasses: My Seinfeld Capitulation

@jazzloon Speaking only for myself, I'm sure your age is perfect on you! The shock for me is realizing how long I have been an adult or close enough. Or, OK, I was in high school in 1989.

On "Excuse me, we've had some complaints you're intimidating people with your toned body."

@angermonkey Seriously. They have a dress code, she wasn't following it, the end.
