The weekly register for the week of June 18 is a little different, and isn’t necessarily directly related to background checks. I found some freakin’ awesome material that everyone can either use or have fun reading. Life’s not all serious and I highly recommend that you take the time to laugh your @$$ off a couple of times a week.
Some People Just Don’t Get It
Amy Alkon over at AdviceGoddess.com is a syndicated columnist who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. I recently discovered her blog while out searching for material in connection to a dating article that is going to be released in the next couple of weeks. I would highly recommend you go and check out the sarcasm. For example, some women wanted her boyfriend’s email password, and here is a little tidbit from Amy’s response: “Of course, there’s no place for waterboarding or other enhanced interrogation techniques in a healthy relationship, but after two years of having sex with a guy, you’d think you’d at least be allowed to have a spy drone follow him to the office”… “Like these other ladies, you seem to be confusing dating with rent-to-own.”
As part of the same project I ran across David Wygant of DavidWygant.com, a dating expert who is no stranger to dispensing brutal honesty and useful bits of advice. I interviewed him for the upcoming “Dating Safety” article and was actually a little shocked at his responses to some of my questions. As it turns out, all the scare tactics the media and background check companies have been using don’t exactly apply as one might think. Mr. Wygant has been featured on a number of media channels which include USNews, AskMen.com, FOX, CBS News, The BBC, and others. I would guess this increases his legitimacy and it might even be worth your time to check out his site. Anyway, have fun and make sure you leave comments below.
Chickens and Criminal Charges
I recently ran across an article in The Kansas City Star about a chicken that was allegedly scared to death by two Chihuahuas belonging to the chicken owner’s neighbor. It would seem the pint sized dogs barked incessantly until the poor chicken died of a heart attack. Now, the woman is facing criminal charges with the potential of spending a year in jail and being fined up to $1,000. Of course I highly doubt it will come to either of those, but it just goes to show what can happen if you don’t assume proper responsibility for your pets. Personally, I think the matter is being blow out of proportion and that the judge should order the woman to pay $500 to the chicken owner, and case closed. That may seem excessive, but the fact remains that the two dogs were allowed to run free, and in today’s society manners and respect have taken somewhat of a back seat.
