His shooting percentage is less than 40 percent and the coach keeps letting him fire away. According to my nephew the guy can't even make shots in practice. Yesterday at practice he yelled, "Do you ever make a shot? I haven't seen you do it in over 2 weeks!!!" His coach made him run laps for that outburst. How does my nephew learn to keep his composure?

    I am traveling to be with my family this Christmas. I have not gone to visit in 3 years. This visit is stressing me out. I have an older sister who is an adult spoiled brat. She baits me and my other relatives with her rude and mean comments. She seeks out confrontation. I used to cope with this behavior by over eating. I got very fat. I had massive health problems from being fat. Today I am healthy and in shape. I got serious about eating right and exercising. Every day I stay on track with eating healthy and exercising. I am concerned I'll get knocked off when she goes after me with her spiteful mean behavior. At the same time I don't want to ruin things by standing my ground. I also don't want to go back to over eating to cope. In a perfect world my parents would tell her to leave if she can't behave. That's not going to happen. In their words it is easier to give in than fight. My gut is telling me to stand my ground and if she ends up leaving all sad and angry then that is her problem and her problem alone.

  • Search Warrant and Nobody is Home?

    I've always wondered this. The police obtain a search warrant on a home. They knock and nobody is home. The people who live there are shopping at the grocery store. Do the police have to wait for someone to come home before searching the home?

  • Has The Property Owner Waived a Lease Clause?

    My friend bought a coffee bar in a strip mall two years ago. The coffee bar has been around for 15 years. In addition to selling coffee drinks the bar has a cooler with milk drinks, juice boxes and energy drinks. These items are usually purchased by parents for their kids when the parents come in for coffee. Three months ago a small grocery store opened in the strip mall. It also sells milk, juice boxes and energy drinks. The property owner informed my friend in writing he has to stop selling the products in the cooler because they are not coffee related items. This is in his lease. The hitch here is for 15 years under all ownership the property owner was aware of the cooler and the items for sale. This was never a problem until the grocery opened. Has the property owner granted waiver by ignoring the sales of the cooler items in the past?

    Does the expression Revenge is a Dish Best Served cold mean you should never take revenge? A person would never serve cold food. So if Revenge is served cold then that means you do not take revenge on others?

So tell me how it feels to be on the winning side. I'd love to know.

    If anyone credible other than Hillary were the Democratic nominee then would that person be 10 or 20 points up on Trump? I am not a Democrat and no fan of Trump. I think even Bernie Sanders would be ahead by double digits. Trump is who he is and it amazes me the race is as close as it is.

You ask what is taking so long and the food server tells you 2 cooks are out sick and the kitchen is understaffed. Had you known the place was having a bad night, you would have gone somewhere else this one time only. Do you tip like you normally tip (generous yet not over the top) or do you lower it for being "deceived"?
