What's wrong with doggy slings in a library that has a no pet policy? The fact that there's a no pet policy and it's not your (general) right to decide to ignore that....?

it's not that there is anything wrong with doggy slings in general. the issue is the library seems to have a no pet policy so whether she is in a sling or on a leash is besides the point as she's still a pet and not allowed in So it's not the actual sling that is the issue

OIC see at most places here (excluding one that serve food) there is a loophole that as long as the dog is not "touching the ground" then dog owners could get away with it.

I wish more stores would follow Home Depot & TSC's example & allow pets in, I mean they allow children in (this is not a jab at children or parents, this is just an example of a kind of double standard) but not dogs, it sucks because dogs in general are better behaved then most people's children that I see . If the dog is causing problems the manager can always ask them to leave but why should that say "well some people don't train their dogs so all dogs aren't allowed " it's kind of a blanket statement.

If someone I live with and love very much's work calls and asks if he can teleport ONE MORE TIME I'm going to lose it.

No, he can't make it to work by 1:30 today when you call at 1:29. OMG BAD EMPLOYEE RIGHT. NO. HE GETS MINIMUM WAGE. HE IS NOT ON CALL. STOP STOP STOP.

HE IS NOT PSYCHIC. HE IS NOT MAGIC. IF HE WERE, YOU'D BE PAYING HIM MORE THAN $8/hr.

STOP STIFFING HIM. WHEN YOU CALL HIM FOR A 4 HOUR SHIFT, HE GETS PAID FOR 4 HOURS. SENDING HIM HOME AFTER 1 IS NOT OKAY.

I. am. livid.

I think it's more of an allergy issue rather than a behavioural issue. while many people don't like children they won't suffer from hives, asthma, or other allergic reactions from being around them lol.

Yeah, I was.

We live ~30 minutes away. The only reason he's holding on is that it's much easier to find work if you have a job, so... I'm so over this. Plus we have plans, so it's not like he can go in today ANYWAY, but asking if he can drive that far in one minute (never mind getting dressed and cleaned up and getting his supplies together) is just...

Because of course now he's all stressed out because neither of us is really in a position to turn down work unless we have to, but it's just not possible and ugh.

I should be more exact ... I do not like children who misbehave lol, the well behaved kids are NP, for me & I know there are. Lot of them too, so let me clarify ... It's not ALL kids just the ones who aren't reined in by their parents.

Yeah I kind of got it after I posted lol, I guess I misread her post lol. Sorry.
