Happiest- I got better. there are people looking(spying) as to what is being written in the coffee room(mainly by me) and someone went back to someone and said everything ive wrote and go me into trouble. yet they think because i was talking about somehting they automatically assumed i was talking about them and now i am no longer going to have this username anymore. I will be using another one, just now I can no longer be myself 🙁

ok here we go for some stories:
1. a guy calls me to tell me hes outside that i should come out. so the people who’s house i went out from runs out there and yells at him at how dare you not come to get her. he shows up in jeans and shirt.(he was supposedly aq chassidish guy from WB) and im all fancy for the date he turns around and says to “i just wanted to meet you to see if i wanted to go out with you.” the shadchan who was his cousin was so mad at him and apologized profusely to my mom.
2.usually a guy holds door me unless i tell him other wise. but this one guy walks into store and doesnt hold door and not only that doesnt let me go first!
3.another guy calls me to tell me he needs to go to the mikvah before we go out. so i went to meet him because i didnt want him to pick me and we go. we get outside the restaurant and i go to get out. he says where are you going? and i said into the store!(duh! where else?) then he says “no stay a while lets relax whats the rush?” OK fine. weird thing number one. Now we go into restaurant(this guy is chassidish too) and i start being curteous to waiter. like hi thank you how are you. he says not appropriate to talk to waiter. i said “EXCUSE ME?!?!?! of course you talk to them its called being respectful!” and we go on and on. then i tell him how iw ant an open house and if my friends want to come for shabbos thats ok. to which he says its not appropriate and that really bothers me because i wont talk to them. and i said well then we wouldnt be able to have your friends because I would find it inappropriate(which i totally dont care. just had to say it) so i then i said …”see ya!”January 17, 2011 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm in reply to: Places to live outside NY #1035991

PBA that is hilarious!!!!!!!!!
Always here-enjoy! b’tayavon! at brissim its expected esp since u need to get home or to work etc.
Ladies who bring bags with them to wedding or auctions…thats just plain and simple wrong and gross too!
A kiddish is different though. When I was little I would always bring something home for my mom because she couldnt make it. I knew what she liked and always made sure to get it.January 16, 2011 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm in reply to: Anyone Know Of A Good Photographer? #729439

being a lubab its not a deragatory term. if u mean it as derogatory then it is but usually not. its the same as u call a chassidish guy a belzer or bobover is a stolliner etc etcJanuary 16, 2011 6:18 pm at 6:18 pm in reply to: Most Courteous Place To Shop At:Praise And You'll See More Of It #728824

So it happens to be we are really looking to move out of our apt since we cant stand the ppl on top of us. They are beyond disgusting. whatever! anyways we figured while we’re at it we might as well move out of our community. Although we only got married 10 months ago we dont like the schools here 100%. one of the schools has 6 parallel classes per grade with like 25 kids in each class. its ridiculous. aside from that, we just want to go somewhere else but we need to be near a chabad house!January 16, 2011 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm in reply to: If This Is The Answer, What Was The Question #732041

real brisker-i was going to say the same thing. after reading it I wanted to bring it up here. Me as a teacher I see how the kids need a break. As soon as my kids start being looney and dont know what to do with themselves we know they need a vacation. Besides because of the snow days kids went even crazier bec they didnt have a schedule to adhear to or fun things to do. Think about how coo coo your kids were going bec they were cooped up for two-three days with nothing to do. Taking away a winter break from kids and adults too is just terrible. Dont say that teachers dont need it. You as an adult need it too. Teachers cant make ends meet during the year so they have to get jobs during the summer. dont say that they get a summer vacation because they really dont. Not only that, you probablyhave a 9-5 job or if youre lucky u cood be a stay at home mom, is that why you dotn want your kids home because you want to be without them? If you have a 9-5 job(minus a few hours) are you ever bringing your work home? No? well then youre lucky. because a teacher never gets a break…they run into parents and students at the supermarket(then parents want an update), call parents at home, deal with meetings for different students, lesson plans and more. So before you go thinking of banning winter break think about all those that look forward to it.
If you want to ban it because of money, then my suggestion is to stop spending on unneccessary things and save a little for your children and a few days off!(btw parents get the school calendar before the year beings. if i were you i’d put ur days in to be off for those days!)January 14, 2011 7:07 pm at 7:07 pm in reply to: Do Not Read This Thread #894617
I know someone here but they dont know that i know them. and i always want to say something when i see them but i dont!

BTW about the snack sharing thing…because of allergies these days we cant allow the kids to share. Wanna hear a kid with lots of allergies? She’s allergic to: fish, eggs, soy, dairy, nuts, berries…we cant give her many snacks, yet she gets hot lunch. Go figure?! that’s why we cant shareJanuary 7, 2011 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm in reply to: Being a shadchan for friends #725695

Ehrlicheryid-it was very funny! thank you for bringing some humor into the CR and into my life! that was really great!January 1, 2011 11:42 pm at 11:42 pm in reply to: Chasidim and Misnagnim #723157
1. i can tell ur lubavitch
2. do not call them misnagdim. call them litvish bec misnagdim is a negative and deragatory word(that i hate)
3. the only reason why the chasidim(mainly lubavitch) call them misnagdim is bec when the Alter Rebbe was spreading Chassidus a Liitvisher guy reported to the police how this guy is spreading chassidus around the world thru Poland. so the Alter Rebbe went to jail at the age of 3 that is why Litvishers are called Misnagdim. Bec the Lubavitch were trying to spread Yiddishkeit and the Litvishers didnt like it. (When i see the Alter Rebbe I mean the First Lubavitcher Rebbe.)
Are you Lubavitch? or what are you?December 31, 2010 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm in reply to: When To Tell Our Parents #723981
oomis-mazel tov! may you have lots of nachas from himDecember 31, 2010 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm in reply to: When To Tell Our Parents #723975
well first and foremost, B’sha Tovah! may you and your wife only have nachas from the little peanut(which is what it is now)!
Second, this is a conversation i’ve had with people. It depends on how close you are with your parents. if you want to wait till month 3 thats acceptable. but if your very close with your parents or the fact that your wife is probably closer with her mom she’s most likely to tell your in laws first. Also if you want to be cute you can say to them…”So I was wondering…Which of these terms would like to be called in ___months? Bubby/Zaidy etc.” that would be cute!December 29, 2010 12:15 am at 12:15 am in reply to: School tomorrow?? #726873

i own a tv! im happy to have it. why? because it comforts me when my husband works crazy hours. iy”H when i have kids it will go but until then its staying put.
I am with TheGoq on this one! Exccept Goq I got a Keurig, ya think in like 20 years from now I’ll have a problem with my kids shidduchim cuz of it?? lol
here’s a story-
acouple comes to rabbi Freifeld and says the wife wants a TV because she doesnt like being home alone whenn husband works late etc. rabbi freifeld says they can get it but dont enjoy it. but u know what i spoke to my rav and he told us its ok to have it. my husband wasnt thrilled but i need it.

I happen to know one of the guys from the group as we did know each other is high school and I can tell you he had a great voice then and B”H still has one now. I started playing it for the Rosh Yeshiva in the school I work in and he says “I want to see the rest later but I gotta start my meeting.” A rosh yeshiva!!! He thought it was fun and cute.

WOW that is very sad! my view on torah reflects theirs???? How could you say that? You are soooo way off! its called having your own views and opinions on things. You must live in a bubble and if I met you Oh boy would I have A LOT to argue about. The main reason why I am not anti-goyish is because I have family members who married goyim and I have all my family members who are not frum. so before you go accusing me that my torah reflects them, it’s because i see both worlds. you obviously dont and next time you want to go and say something negative to ME think about how my family is and how yours is. I have been frum now for 8 years but i was always in a yeshiva(since i was 3 as it was importnat for my mom to send me there) and have been close with many frum families for many years. and just remember…look how many people are geirim and dotn you dare say you are anti goyish because it makes you sound stupid. Therefore because of that I am leaving the CR because I can not and will not associate myself with people like yourself!November 23, 2010 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm in reply to: Solid Frum Working guys #712608
I have goyish views???? Where did you get that idea from?
I have REALISTIC views not goyish ones! Besides are you anti goyim? Sure sounds like it! I’m not anti them. They are the ones that pump ur gas, that cleans your house, checks problems in your home when there is one…so why would I have a problem with them? Furthere more…goyish views??? Ya sure about that? I had a whole talk with my friend last night and she has the same views as me and she grew up in israel so again does she have goyish views???November 23, 2010 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm in reply to: Solid Frum Working guys #712604
im not making them into victims.i was saying that not always do they know what will be. ill never forget one person agirl i was friends with who said she hated that they had no money. she said dont tell my husband…in that case she shouldve bec now was when he needed to get a job. this is all the same girl who had a kid one right after the other and 9 months after she got married. people dont realize what really goes on and ive really really have seen it as i was a bas bayit by many of these homes!November 23, 2010 4:02 am at 4:02 am in reply to: Solid Frum Working guys #712600
i actually live in a community with 3 top yeshivas here. one of them i stay away from because of all the people ive seen hurt from there and how they turn away from certain people. the other yeshiva i happen to love! i am close with the rosh yeshiva and the rosh kollel(yes i am) i was mainly discussing what i have seen in the past. im nto saying ive never seen good. i am simply stating how i feel which is allowed supposedly in the CR and at the end of the day i feel its the mans responisibility to take care of the wife and it shouldnt be her or his fathers. because why should he have to suffer the stress and why cant the son learn how to? Isnt that how daddy got his riches???? it just isnt a way to teach children how to fend for themselves…if you read the books(like even the jewish novels) you see how it effects the children. the wife thinks she can spend and spend and that her father will always be there to bail her out but that is not how it works. the husband and wife are a team and they have to do it together!November 23, 2010 12:53 am at 12:53 am in reply to: Charades by: Riva Pomerantz #756017
i hate when they do that. i think he got involved with the mafia who was that chef at the party…im glad hes out of the picture now. she does not need a husband like him…hes mean!November 22, 2010 10:03 pm at 10:03 pm in reply to: Solid Frum Working guys #712590

you know what the problem is? every other say another school opens or people end up travelling elsewhere. i know of a very famous yeshiva here, where they b”H have expanded tremendously in the last few years. there were 4 classes with 26 kids now they are almost double that(and thats just preschool). whats the trick? amazing rebbes and morahs and of course….FUNDRAISING! if a school is closing they could have a terrible advocate who is trying to fundraise and they dont know what they are doing. it’s all about the PR. you gotta have a good reputation, not kick kids out just cuz they spoke to the opposite gender etc. i would never send my child to a school knowing that they kick kids out for stupid reasons.
at the same time this school that is expanding is i am sure im debt. but the parents give as much as they can and if people stopped having a million kids and paid tuition on time then maybe they wouldnt be have to not pay tuition and be on time with payments. oh and actually pay teachers more money and on time!November 12, 2010 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm in reply to: Dressing More Professionally at work(schools) #708486

and they do. women HAVE TO wear full sheitals. i love it. i get up in the morning, get dressed, put myseld together and say B”H i work in a place where they make me wear hair! outside school i love my snood. but as i heard today from the schools psycologist…little children WATCH EVERYTHING. they notice every detail of their morah. and when a teacher wears a snood or a tichel, you know how it is. it starts to fall back, hair pokes out and then you are constantly adjusting it. the kids will see what clothes you’re wearing,the nail polish, the hair etc. Girls are always intune to this and if you are sending your daughter to a bais yaakov school then there are certain criteria you are dealing with. such as a woman wearing stockings and tights daily. i personally dont do that. i wear a long skirt with sneakers or i wear a short skirt with boots but make sure my leg is covered. a bais yaakov girl/morah is set to a certain standard and wearing a wig is one of those. i love the fact that i have to since it makes me feel like a mentch and i dont look like a shlump!November 11, 2010 1:32 pm at 1:32 pm in reply to: Dressing More Professionally at work(schools) #708481
OOMIS- you’d be very suprised what I see going on in girls schools….November 11, 2010 1:30 pm at 1:30 pm in reply to: Fathers and brothers dancing with the Kallah #709161
I think it’s beautiful when the kallah dances with her brothers and father. I’ve seen it many times and I love it! on that note, since I do not have a father and I am very close with my uncles at my wedding they came and we danced together. I am not MO at all as I am Yeshivish/Chassidish. Yes, they are conservative but they went to yeshiva all their lives and they chose a different path. Number one I would never put them down for it. In fact I had one uncle say a bracha under the chuppah and the other walk my husband down. For me NOT to dance with them would have been a disgrace. Since they are my mother’s brothers my mother joined too as did her 3 sisters. Why is a mitzvah tantz ok? because they are dancing with a gartel? Tell you the truth I think it’s more inappropriate to watch a mitzvah tantz where every single person, man and woman, are watching the kallah dance. if you have a problem with a father and brothers dancing with a kallah then you must have a problem with a mitzvah tantz? why is ok for a kallah to dance with a rebbe and not her father or brother? this is completely ridiculous to even put anyone down bec they dance with their father and brothers! Kol Hakavod to the kallahs that do!November 11, 2010 12:46 am at 12:46 am in reply to: Dating Locations? #708848
i went on a date and walked around downtown williamsburg. saw some Verrrrrry intresting people.
i went to carlos and gabbys on a date…knew i was gonna marry my husband on that one(was the first date). i got to the point that i was like people know im dating so if they see me they see me big deal. but that was me.
i hated the hotel lobby thing. it was so boring! luckily one them had a tv in the background so i was able to watch when they guy got boring.

i am not saying to wear a suit. just to wear a nice headcovering to set the tone. plenty of teachers know how to get dressed nicely and they look great and the kids feel great. im not trying to bash teachers. it just gets to be disgusting at points thats all!November 10, 2010 1:10 pm at 1:10 pm in reply to: Dressing More Professionally at work(schools) #708472
Wisewoman. Now you are equating casual with shlumpiness.
I am actually not doing so. I am simply stating what dressing shlumpy leads to.November 9, 2010 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm in reply to: Dressing More Professionally at work(schools) #708469
Bli ayin Hara I have not seen such problems with sheitals and then getting dirty. if you are being a teacher then you should know that the job gets dirty and if you are s worried then dont become a etacher. at the same time do you knowhow many ppl are becoming teacher(assistants too) just for tuition breaks or because they are bored. these are also the worse kind.
Dvorak-you cant compare a teacher and a doctor.
apushutayid-kids absolutely see the difference. how do i know this? because when a teacher comes late, the class in disorganized. when a teacher in a shlump the class becomes disorganized bec then the teacher doesnt really care.
Bptotty- you are 100% right. a teacher who cares about themselves with also care about their students and how things are going. i noticed that the shlumpy teachers have a hard time with a lot of students. whereas the ones who are put together are the ones who have that calming soothing affect and the kids love their morah!November 8, 2010 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm in reply to: Dressing More Professionally at work(schools) #708461
I hardly ever hear of people being nervous about ruining their head coverings. What about girls who put themselves together and let their hair down(and are told they must wear their hair down for shidduchim.) so why is that any different? because these women are married they should look like shlumps? i dont think so. I would not send my child to a place where the teachers dress down everyday and the classroom/playgroup/school is disorganized
