Re: “Wanna be business man

I can understand that some people would find a guy like that a bit much but, that said, I don't think he merits public shaming or an organized boycott. He isn't endangering anyone. If his customers feel they get what they pay for and are treated well then he has fulfilled his side of the bargain. If they find him boorish then they can decide for themselves not to go there.

Serving the public is difficult. I witnessed someone have a meltdown in a store just last week. It was way over the top in relation to the gripe so I can understand how business owners get a bit jaded.

As long as their staff are courteous to me and provide the right service at the right price I don't care what their private thoughts are. I do agree though, they should probably keep those thoughts to themselves.

Re: “Be Smart

If it's the pedestrians who are at fault then why are the drivers almost always ticketed?

Ghost J/ Nukka,
Extensive research (ie. a Google search) indicates that the term WSV originated with the movie Mean Girls.

It seems to be just a way of saying "big" as in:

Re: “Stop being scared!

Dr Z,
At the risk of generalizing, the younger folks today are a super-sensitive lot. I find myself choosing my words much more carefully when I am around someone under 30. They seem to be constantly on the alert for "micro aggressions" and, the latest fad, "trigger words". I suspect that every time a trigger word shows up in a bitch post someone is clicking on the "report" button to flag it and have it deleted.

Below is a link to an article in the Atlantic entitled "The Coddling of the American Mind"
"In the name of emotional well-being, college students are increasingly demanding protection from words and ideas they don’t like. Here’s why that’s disastrous for education—and mental health."
