It keeps better with the brim up!
NO.. Not really a bechira choice by me BH!
real brisker.. You will be very unpopular at work ampong your co-workers. NO ONE likes tattle talers. Not in school and even more so at work!!
AS well if YOU feel uncomfortable about saying no you should discuss it with a ROv or Rebbetzin. (not sure if you are a boy or a girl!
Sac. as much as you have to look at the person for who they are the pointis that they may be scarred or posess the same negative trait as one of their parents..
I was always thankful when my brithers were involved. It depends if they are older and married or just an immature bochur..
i appreciate that my brother gave an OK to my husband. i know my brothers had high standards!
As well it depends on if you already started or only looked into..
Not so related but they say the women police are the worst! BC they are women they have to prove to everyone that they are just as tough!
As well ppl haven’t yet gotten used to the idea of the women being the bread-winners. They think the men get paid more cause they need it.. No fair!
I hear what you are saying, GYT.
The same thing happens in social life too. Some just are more popular than others.. Soem ppl are the ones that get the good jobs, have good kids etc.. The way it is!December 16, 2010 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm in reply to: yosheiv beseser… mipach yokush midever _____ what? #718399
Blueprints.. Who said tachers are infallable?
Didn’t we all have teachers that made mistakes!?
It is clearly Havois!
From the office! BH don’t have internet or computer at home!
I hate when my married friends send me these marriage emails! I wouldn’t want to read them! I BH am married happily.. Who needs the narishkeiten? Not sure who they make them up for.. my single friends.. why give them the wrong impression. married ones.. who needs this garbage!?
I get along great with my MIL. I would give a tip to any Kalla. Call your MIL “mommy..” right away she likes it and tada easy as..December 16, 2010 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm in reply to: Inappropriate Opposite Gender Interactions in the Workplace #1075585
I would think that to call someone by their title instead of their first name would actually come across more professional than not!
I used to work in a an office with a large amount of both men and women. As soon as I was hired I was told I would be called Miss.. It ends up being the most helpful for everyone.
The next job. my boss calls me by my first name and in the beginong I was uncomfortable about it.. Unfortunately it doesn’t bother me so much anymore..
I was always taught that even for a goy you can not make him brake for you on Shabbos!
Yes a yid may sound worse but really making the goy do a melacha for you!
Popa. I think we could dedicate a thread for driving annoyances..
It would fill up pretty fast.
In NJ it is very annoying when ppl are in teh right lane when they are not turning right when I can go on red if they weren’t in “my lane”
In BP if someone pulls over in the narrow block “for just a min. to drop off someone” Chances are if it wasn’t them blocking traffic they would be the one honking.. The fourth car waiting..!!
the.nurse. You are right. I usually care about spelling. The CR leaves room to make mistakes because most people type in short hand!
Don’t get me wrong.. I am the first one to notice annoying mistakes in ads..
I see alot of the threads in teh CR revolve around shidduchim!!
When people chew gum loudly and stinks up your car, room etc..
I ahd a girl in my class, GEnandel. Everyone knew her! It just added to her hilarious character. As well it was always fun to hear how the goyish/not frum teachers would try and pronounce it!!
P.S She also had a sister called Henchy! (The family alwas had the main part in the plays.. all funny.. Also added to the character!
Not only that she had a niece called Ratze!
Calorie diets work the best. My husband has been on it for years already. It works because you know you can have whatever junk you want .. but then less for luinch etc.
You can eat a full b’fast, lunch and suppper. Looks like a lot but really only 2100 calories. It depends on your build. you can’t go down too much..
If kids used to get hit in the shtetel why do you think kids today don’t deserve it?
Kids just get more and more obnoxious, mischevious and chutzpadik as the yrs go on!
Yes they turn a shtickel brown but are very good. My sister does her eggs like that every week and her kids love it that way!
I can NOT stand anyone chewing gum around me!
Anyone heard of that poem about chewing gum.. I forget the whole thing. It goes something like this ..”what is teh difference between a cud-chewing cow and a gum chewing person..Oh it is the intelligent look on the face of the cow!”
I probably killed it! When I heard it I thought it was made just for me!
i think it is mius!
Couldn’t agree more with BPT. Yes for boys it is expensive and annoying, not easy to keep going out.
Yes it is not geshmak for a boy who is learning to keep missing seder and face their chavrusa again and again after a date falling through because of looks or other reasons..
A boy ends up being burnt out faster than a girl though. A boy has his learning, and his yeshiva life is basically his life. A girl on the other hand has a social, work, maybe college life.
I am a “newly wed” and had a shidduch go out already. (Didn’t work but still…) We are always working on Shidduchim. We try..
Besides we decided if we make a shidduch we will go to EY! Always that incentive!
Ther is actually such a phenomena about a kehilla shadchan.
LA has a shadchan who supposedly works on their girls. The same goes for Baltimore.
If you need some numbers of Shadchanim just lok tehm up in teh phone book: Lewenstein (lkwd- Does mostly learning shidduchim, I assume)
Rabbi Brull(I think he is the one that works on baltimore girls)
Interesting story. A mother was looking into a girl. She asked one of the references if she had a picture of her friend. So the girl goes to drop one off..
The boys mother was really interested in seeing the friend (in person)!!
I am a girl but still beleive a boy is allowed to ask for a picture and evenm make a decision from it. Why should he waste his time going out with a girl who he wont be able to look at?! Why dissapoint her after a date, rather say no before going out! She doesn’t have to know why he said no!December 2, 2010 5:16 pm at 5:16 pm in reply to: Ever Win Anything BIG?

My cousin won a set of dimaond studs. It was a whole patchka to get them bec. the store didn’t really arrange it with the organisation..December 2, 2010 4:25 pm at 4:25 pm in reply to: help, can I design pritzus clothing to sell to goyim? #721955
I don’t think there should be a problem. the goyim are not doing anything wrong whrn they wear pritzus. Besides if you don’t design them someone else will and stil wear the pritzus clothes!
Oh so you are the rude people that answer the phones..
You sounds a little fed up but chill!
Besides they ask when is a good time to call because most people aren’t interested in calling an office a few times til they reach the Rebbi etc. Why can’t you be as helpful as you can?!
Not only Yeshivish any way.. not only chassidish.. Lehavdil not only Yidden at all!!! Just BTW
And remember to chill. The people on the other end have hectic lives too!
I like this post a lot. BH every one has their own package, whatever it is. I was once single, didn’t have an easy time having children etc. now BH with things ‘under control’ yes I do not mean to hurt someone who has less. but everyone knows that they like to talk about what is going on in their lives. It is not always easy to talka bout some nutrual topic. No one says something offensive on purpose..
But Still they say no one does the right thing when ‘they meant good’. Some how that is only when they do something wrong!
Dave. that may effect their advertising somewhat. Note the concerts advertised here lately!
As well Schwekey just came out with a new DVD of him in Caesarea again. Anyone buying it after his other concert DVD? I would think that it is repetitious!
Yisroel Werdiger just released his new album. It sounds very nice.
Eli Gerstner released a chnuka Album. To me it sounds like they want to compete with Miami’s Chanuka Album. That is quite a few years old but still most singers don’t need to release a CD for each Yomtov or Chag! Anyway all his music sounds basically the same. he has a new English song on th.re. Didn’t really chap the connection with Chanuka though.
I was taught that if the dish is porcelain it doesn’t require tevila. I guess china today is porcelain?!November 29, 2010 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm in reply to: How important in loyalty when it comes to a shidduch? #714125
Just because a girl looks like a dream girl, she may not actually be one!!
I can’t beleive i am the 1st to say this here! You could say no to the girl you are about to propose to.. Hurt her terribly just to go out with this amazing, stupendous girl where it could crash after 2 dates!!
Once someone is ready they have to take EVERYONE else out of the picture and out of the mind!!!
I would mention one thing: I was taught that when someone tells you a compliment you should thank them. The complimentor may feel slighted if you say “oh this sweater is as old as the hills..” the person would never want to give you a compliment again!
Accept all compliments gratefully!
I like the response of Mother In Israel!
My father always has business card ready to give the woman. I guess if you are still looking for a job you would need a title on the business card under your name!! 🙂
There is definitely sacrifice. For one they are not near thier doting parents. Not always to they come home to give birth. If they are being supported, the parents would spoil them here too. Support is not the topic today.
Before my chasuna I sat down and wrote a beautiful note to both myy parents. They both appreciated it tremendously. Words from the heart are always more appreciated!
A beautiful thing indeed. I learnt that tears can be seen on adult men too! (Though not the first time!)
nachalas puts itself next to Hadar and BJJ. They are still new so are trying to place themselves. From the girrls who went there i only heard good things. Good ehrlich, tznius torahdik girls. Just to note.. Their location is amazing.. that is to bump into any and every yeshiva bochur in EY learning in the Mir or Brisk. They are on teh corner of Shmuel Hanavi and Bar Ilan.
It has a beutiful dorm too..
It’s an attitude one has to be aware of. So easy to chose the easier choice. As well not hard to find heterim.
The ikur is also to stick with one rov. One can’t go fishing..
Our family plays family oriented games.
taboo with the siblings and siblings in law..
We try and keep it family oriented..
it’s not everyday for the whole family to be together..
A harry is someone who is ‘American’ he eats Manischevitz matzos on pesach and does what is typical.. This term my mother HATES!They are often teh people who say ‘oh’ as apposed to ‘oy’ for a choilem!
greasy people are temimusdik learning people. They have dandruff on their shoulders and their hats are a shtickel light from too much wear.. hard to define!
I like that! All kids games are great for adults too!November 23, 2010 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm in reply to: Jews Were Protected From Assimilation By Being Despised and Uncivilized #712280
There is an expression that ‘if we don’t make Kiddush the goyim will make havdala!’ we must separate ourselves otherwise the goyim will hate us for trying to be like them and the Yidden will be separated due to the torments of the Goyim C’V.
It is alesson for us not to come cloese to the Goyim. We have to proud of our yiddish identity!
Often a chosson gets his first one paid for by the ‘shver’ and his mother pays for the sheitel for his wife!
I would assume that the chjildren that do sing in concert etc do have the training. If they wouldn’t it would sound like they are screaming to reach that high note than the beutiful singing that they do..
You wouldn’t think that of the adult men that sing.. ’cause obviously they are trained’
Kiki’s are good as well as Shevy’s. They say that Shevy’s bald but they are nicer smoother hair.
Kiki’s do what they are told while Shevy’s are more lively adn natural looking..
As well you are suppoed to cover your eyes as if you are saying shma if that’s where the kehilla is holding.. Even if you are behind. Otherwise it may look like you do not believe that haShem is Echad CV!
