If there is no money involved (like they are paying you a severance package that depends on it), there is no reason for you to sign this as far as I'm concerned.

Washing my hair? Approx 18 seconds. Drying my hair? About 3 seconds.
I can cut other ppl’s hair without an issue. If I can cut my own hair, I would… but that’s not easy task. My wife have been cutting my hair for 3yrs or so now. I just need to teach her a bit more & im set for life lol

I love my mom to death,but man she is anal. She has repackaged our leftovers from last night twice now. I ate some late last night, so they had to go into smaller containers, everything seperate; rice in one, crab in one, shrimp in one.... The 3 or 4 way light switches all have to face the same way, down for off. You guys saw her Toyota. That will be quite a find for someone when she stops driving and I sell it for her.

Here is one cabinet in her kitchen, and you ever see anyone load silverware the dishwasher like this?

I wish I could talk her into moving in with us. Boy would my house be organized!

I agree with her, light switches should always be down when off, up when on. Turn the light off via the same switch used to turn it on. No confusion that way. (My wife vehemently disagrees. I'm constantly fixing light switch positions).

However, unless she's wearing sterile gloves while unloading the dishwasher, putting silverware in mouth side up results in dirty silverware after unloading.

The pantry organization is on-point.

Just got back from a trip to North Carolina to visit family. Drove the Alfa. After driving the thing 5600 miles in 3 months I feel comfortable saying the below things:

It is a fantastic touring car, as it should be.
The fuel gauge is more of a suggestion than a reading. It took 11 gallons to fill the tank when the reading was at 1/16th, and 13 gallons at 1/8th.
The autonomous driving is nifty, but I still don't trust it. Also the steering inputs are really sharp, like playing a racing game/sim with controller.
The entire electrical system is as wonky as a twin's fuel pump. So far I've been able to readily produce faults in the active aero and throttle by playing around with drive modes, as well as make a read-out in the infotainment think the transmission is operating at about 400* Fahrenheit. It has yet to actually break, though.
Working in helpdesk in the past prepared me for this car. All faults so far can be fixed by turning it off and on again.

How is that even possible unless you always use one switch to turn them on and off?

The suggestive imagery is pathetic. Borderline racist, IMO.

I agree with your wife, what the hell makes the difference - can't you tell whether or not the light is ON or OFF by looking at it? -

Yea, the whole point of 3-way switches is so you can turn it out as you go through a room. Enter one point, turn on light, exit at other end to turn off light, or at top and bottom of stairs.

All this time I've been looking for the center position on 3-way switches! So hard to get them to balance.
