Hey everyone. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to start confirming submissions. I've had one individual who has submitted about 30 items in the past four weeks from the same IP address. S/he's pretty good at creating fake email addresses but, after an IP check, it's all from the same person. Your chances of having a submission posted are much greater if you give a REAL email address. Again, it won't be shared with anyone, but I'm not into fake posts.

Man logic

Woman: "Are you ever going to help me with the kids?"

Man: "I try to help as much as I can."

Woman: "But you don't do anything. When I ask for help, you always say you can't, or you'll do it later, or some other excuse."

Man: "But, honey, you don't understand. The more I help, the more I cause problems. I can get in the way. I can do something wrong. I can mess something up. The more I'd help, the more you'd need to clean up after me. By NOT helping, I'm actually doing more than you think."
