            • Peeve of the day: when I read the words "pregnant people" in some article. How is that possibly better than "pregnant women"?

              • People who tell my wife about whatever fundraiser they are doing. She cannot say no, and we already have plenty of worthy causes we donate to. I don't get it. Why don't you just give the money to the cause you pick? Why do you have to hit up all your family/friends about it?

                  Ha. My wife never says no to kids in the ward.

                      Thanks for the tip. I have an idea.

                      Step 1 - start charitable organization
                      Step 2 - move into JL's ward
                      Step 3 - have each child visit Mrs. JL repeatedly soliciting contributions to charitable organization
                      Step 4 - pay myself generous salary from charitable organization
                      Step 5 - retire with welder money

                        I'm the same way. We don't get hit up every other day, but I always pull a $20 out of my wallet for their cause.

                          I have no problem giving money as long as the kids are offering some kind of service in exchange for the money. Otherwise it's just pan-handling.

                            Usually it's a fundraiser for school sports or scouts and involves food or a discount card. Honestly, I'd be happy to cut out the overhead and just make a donation.

                              Last time one of my kids came home with a fundraiser that required contacting friends and family about a product/service nobody would really want, I just made a donation for the amount they needed to collect. So much better than pestering everyone. Plus, donations to Idaho schools generally qualify for an Idaho tax credit for Idaho residents.

                              • This isn't a pet peeve per se, but I wanted to share. I was on a video call with a very educated woman, Ph.D., who pronounced "reciprocity" as "re-ci-pri-cah-kity".
                                Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.
