Just because a hospital provides world-class medical care, it doesn't necessarily mean that their office staff are world-class.

It's harder than it looks to de-gnome a garden.

^For a moment, I thought it was a thread about you that had been misspelled.
I did too, for a couple of seconds. Then I realised there'd be no need for such a thread!
I thought it was going to be an announcement about how something horrible had happened to ITL.

Today I learned that this is not what the thread is about.

Then again, you don't want a bunch of buttons in the way when you're in the bathroom and in a hurry. Unless you're worried about being caught with someone else's SO, why would you be in such a rush closing that part of your clothing? Getting "bitten" by a zipper strikes me as either carelessness dressing or recklessness about your personal relationships.

I re-discover this every time I have to deal with my doctor's billing office. I swear, I don't think they've done the insurance and billing correctly even once.

Well I don't know if I learned this because I used to know it, and I forgot it, but I re-learned who built Mary's room.

In my experience you just have to open the top button -then you can rip the rest apart -do that to a zip and you're likely to ruin it. And besides; it is easier to replace a button or two than to replace a whole zipper...

I learned today not to get capsaicin cream in my eye.

And also I learned to read thread titles better, as I originally thought this was a thread about Public Image, Ltd.

The two events are not related.

Ouch! My sympathy to you, ZR.

TIL... that I still remember vividly what it felt like to go through chemical agents (pepper spray, Mace, etc.) training years ago.
