Re: “I Hate Car Alarms

You know you can call the cops when alarms go off and they can deal with it by contacting the owner.

Re: “Landlord or Cult Leader

This turned up on Craig's list in Vancouver a few months ago.

Re: “Poor Peanuts

yes Dr. Fever, you ARE lucky that you only broke out into a rash. The kids that have a fatal reaction have their throats close up.

I think what we need to realize is that, as in any debate, people will always be every emphatic about their side and will never be able to be convinced otherwise. We aren't attacking people here, and please remember this is a place for people to bitch and vent -- no matter what their topic of choice. Counter bitches will not wn them over.

Re: “Poor Peanuts

The peanut issue is a hot topic and each side has their points. I worked in a daycare in which we had toddlers and preschoolers who had epipens for peanut allergies. Most of these kids are unable to tell when there are peanuts in the room, and then ask for those peanut products to be disposed of or wrapped up an put away.

I acknowledge however that a preschool is much different from an elementary school though -- in that kids don't always have their hands in their mouths.

I think what the non-peanut allergy" side needs to understand is that kids with these allergies can die. Does that mean that they should be excluded from the social opportunities and benefits (I use that loosely) of the public school system? If so, where do we stop? Anyone ever heard of the slippery slope?

Put yourself in a parent's position: Your child, who could die from a small exposure, is sent off, away from you, where you cannot protect or control what he/she comes into contact with. Would you not be concerned for your child's life? Esp if there are parents out there who say "who cares if they're allergic? That's THEIR problem -- let them deal with it"? I think a little compasion and understanding would make this topic a little more pallatible.

And if you're looking for healthy food options for your kids: pack them a healthy lunch! What's wrong with a jam sandwich, with some carrot sticks and an apple? Does the two tablespoons of PB really make THAT much difference?
