What would you have done?
After the anthems, audibly commend the 5yo for removing his hat.

As previously posted, strictly speaking, US Code does not require women to remove their hats.

Not concern myself with something trivial that does harm to no one, especially when it is someone elses business and not mine. That's how I try to frame my thoughts on other people's actions or words if I don't agree with it or I simply lack the context to make an informed thought about it.

He went on a date with a gal once who seemed to have the same interests, was cute, yadda yadda. The date went from something like 8pm to 3am. He texted her the next morning at 9am, when she told him that she had a GREAT time, but there was no "spark."

Friend zone... it's a depressing black hole of a place.
Wait.. you and your friends use the term "friend zone" and you're sure he's not gay?

There was a day when women actually wore fancy hats that were a small part of the larger ensamble- I have no prob when women who dress up like that do not remove their hats. Its the ones in a baseball cap that dont remove them. If I'm Miss Manners, I say its not ok if its a baseball hat- but whatever..

The thing that REALLY gets to me is people who sit on the edge of their seats and lean forward, obstructing your view. The only thing worse is the guy who jumps out of his seat when something exciting starts to happen.

Or how about the 8 year old behind us who tries to give the play by play? You can't say anything because you have to applaud his interest in the game, but after sixty minutes of hearing "VANEK PASSES TO ROY WHO PASSES TO ENNIS WHO PASSES BACK TO VANEK WHO SKATES OVER TO ROY" screamed into your ear, you start to wonder if you really do want kids.

As a guy who used to be exactly like this (complaining about not having a GF, never did anything about it), the truth is, he doesn't want to have a lady friend. Back in 07-ish I started dating a girl. We really liked each other, after a month I freaked out and ended it. I could never get comfortable. Looking back at it, I wasn't ready and didn't really want it in my life at the time.

Those little punks at W-North are now taunting Jamey Rodemeyer's sister are school dances.

I'm not a violent person, but I'd love to spend a few days at school putting fear of God into these arrogant little jerks.

So when are the teachers and especially the parents going to step up and do something about this?

The parents must either not give a flying **** about what their kids are doing or they must be similar to Eric Cartman's mother.

However, in reference to today's thread title, I can say with absolute certainty that I do not reside in the 'friend zone'.

Got stuck in the friend zone in undergrad...then she started going out with this real loser.

Moral of the story: Don't stick me in the friend zone, it will come back to haunt you.

When I went to the home opener, I stood nearly the entire game (not by choice). The only time I sat down was during a tv timeout.

There are few responses too strong for those ********.

Wishing someone death, then cheering on when they do die is on another level from bullying.

There are 2 things I don't understand.

1. How do these kids keep getting away with this? Has no one turned them into teachers or some kind of school official.

2. What the hell has happened to kids today. I only graduated from high school 11 years ago and nothing even close to this went on. I mean there were kids who were picked on, but it's not like this. Usually if something like this went on for an extended period of time the bullies were eventually ratted out.

Take him to the "ballet" and show him what he's missing out on.
