St. Barnabas Ambulatory care center in Livingston NJ is like a 5 star hotel. The 9th floor of the Milstien building at Columbia Presbyterian is almost the same but not quite.
Health: You’re looking for personal situations. My Brother amu”s while getting a port installed got Staph infection at Maimonides. Maimonides is known for great Cardiac care. Unfortunately in regards to all other Hospital issues their sort of infamous for lack of Patient care.
I just remembered another personal story. I was having my cast on my hand removed. It was supposed to be one of those saws that are not supposed to cut skin. Well, lo and behold it went right through my skin, I have a scar till today, albeit a minute one. While the Doc was cutting the cast I was screaming in pain that he was cutting me as well but he said it’s not possible. He was proved wrong.
It’s a common courtesy for a guy not to end the first date at least not before 2 hours. Like “Dunno” said, she worked harder then the guy to get ready.January 26, 2011 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm in reply to: #732826

As an added note, I added a blessing at the end of my post and it got edited. I don’t remember if giving blessings is one of the things not allowed to be written in the Coffee room. If someone (Mods) can explain please why I was edited I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
It was edited for a typo, feel free to repost your blessing.
The Chofetz Chaim writes in his Sefer Chofetz Chaim Day 119 that there are 5 things to consider before someone tells someone else that they can get it cheaper by someone else. These 5 things are only if the storekeeper is looking to cheat the customer( meaning he/she knows that one can get the item at substantially reduced price elsewhere), then and only then would a person be allowed to tell another that they should shop elsewhere. The 5 things are,
1)You must be certain that your information about the store keeper is correct.
2)You may not exaggerate the storekeepers faults.
3)Your intent must be L’TOELES, for a constructive purpose and not because you happen to dislike this particular storekeeper.
4)You must be certain that there is no way to convince the person to avoid this purchase without telling them the faults of the storekeeper.
5)You will not cause the storekeeper a loss which is not permitted by Halacha. If your warning the person will result in a major scandal which will force the storekeeper to leave town or close his business, then you must remain silent.
If all these conditions are not met then one would be guilty of speaking Rechilus.
The Chofetz Chaim adds that a competent Halachic authority should be consulted regarding how best to prevent further fraud.
I see that your not looking for an Halachic answer, but, it happens to be a Halachic matter and not only a Mentchlichkeit matter. Sorry.

I agree to some extent. I believe that a person CAN change albeit maybe not right away and not a huge turnaround. Sometimes, a person may want to be spiritually higher for themselves, but don’t have the proper motivation to get there. Some people know where they are in life and where they want to go, others need a little chizuk and with the right spouse that can be achieved. All of these things need to be understood before a person gets engage.
May all be blessed and find our Zivug Hagun in the right and sweet time and may it be as soon as we like.
Fully agree with you. I try to make it my business to thank Hashem every time something good happens to me, like when I find a parking spot and so on and so forth.
I’m looking for someone with that attitude.

I would pay to see.

When I do a mitzvah, my primary motivation is to do the mitzvah for the sake of doing it — not for any reward I may or may not receive for it.
I completely agree.
The Hebrew and English versions are not literal translations of each other. I was learning last night Mesectha Bava Basra with my Chavrusah.He had the Hebrew and I the English version. It came to a p’shat in the Gemara where the English verion didn’t have the answer in the foot notes but, in the Hebrew it did. Maybe, it just was a later version I don’t know. Another thing it pays to learn with someone who knows the Gemara or knows how to learn the Gemara before hand cause they can catch a discrepancy in the Gemara that a novice might not catch. Discrepancy you ask? Occasion and I mean very, extremely occasionally we have found a mistake. Meaning,that one Man De’amar was mixed up with another. Being that I am close to Artscroll I spoke to them about it and they told me that it happens and to report it so, that later versions will have the correction.
Whew. Longest post for me, ever. Have a wonderful day people.

eclipse. Yup and it doesn’t take a second either. So, it’s more like ouuuucchhhh. 🙂
Why hasn’t anyone mentioned outside influence as a cause for divorce rates? Be it Litvish or Chasidish.
As a side note I think the mods should put Litvish and Chasidish in to their dictionary so that there won’t be any spell check issues. Chasidim as well. 🙂

Funny thing. I posted in reference to: Research. Guess the mods weren’t posting.
I heard a story of a Chuseveh Yid in Yerushalayim. He was on a bus when, an older gentleman got on, and being that the bus was packed he decided to give this gentleman his seat. A few stops later a young lady comes on. This gentleman sees her and gets up, as if to give him his seat(the one that was given to him earlier by the Chusheveh Yid). The Chusheveh Yid sees this and sits down quickly. The gentleman looks at him as if he’s off his rocker so,, he explains to him that he got up for him and the _______ fill in the blank. 🙂
