OW! I hope you were able to get it back in (after you cleaned the ring and your nose up.) If anyone compromised my belly piercing, there would be freaking hell to pay!

46- If you're talking about me, I am not fat. I have big cheeks and boobs and that's all you can see so don't be stupid. Plus, even if I were fat it sure as hell beats being a prematurely balding asshole!

12, 65, 97 - actually, it is positive punishment. Positive reinforcement = slapping her to make her pick her nose more often Negative reinforcement = slapping her all the time except when she picks her nose so she does it more Positive punishment = slapping her when she picks her nose so she does it less

I love long hair on dudes, but most nose piercings just seem... I dunno... pointless to me. When I was younger, having a piercing like that would just give my dad something to grab onto when he was angry at me xD

Honestly, and I know I'm going to be thumbed down, I find most piercings unattractive, same with tattoos. Ear piercings for women are fine, but anything other then that is just excessive. Especially on men. Why do men even need piercings?

Why is it that everyone under the age of 30 thinks they need to pierce everything? You look ridiculous and you are hurting your chances of landing a good job or advancement. Where I work we can afford to be very selective, particularly in this down economy. When we are interviewing for a position and someone comes in with a piercing or a hole where they have removed a stud, we immediately say "NEXT." We have over 200 applicants for every opening and we don't need someone who

That's a very snobbish comment to make about people... A lot of companies nowadays allow people freedom of expression and aren't so elitist as to refuse someone a position if they have a visible piercing or tattoo. If they're good at their job, they're hired no matter what they look like. Surely that's what counts?

Unfortunately, you obviously know little about business. A buiness suit would do much better in securing a deal then trashy looking jeans and a tshirt, if you get my example.

I knew someone would say this. If you have a choice of over 200 people and they are all fairly equitable in intelligence, ability and education, then why would you pick the one who looks like a whore over the one who is smart enough to show her respect and interest in actually obtaining the position by wearing a (gasp) suit? If picking people who have enough common sense to not look like trash, comb their hair, cover their asses and wear proper undergarments and real shoes to a job interv

#48 and #61 by bankrupt, Very well said. It doesn't take much to show some respect, courtesy and common sense. If you can't respect yourself enough to be serious for a job application, why should anyone take you seriously?

Having a nose piercing doesn't make you any trashier than the next person. Piercings, tattooes and any form of body art is as much self expression as your hair cut, clothing or other types of jewelry. Not everyone wants to work at a ginormous suit/dress type work, and not everyone place discriminates like that. To each his own.

I agree that appearance is extremely important when going out for a business job, but I have to point out that dressing well and being presentable are completely different from having piercings and tattoos. Many people do get them because they are bandwagoning idiots, but many others get them because they have a genuine love and passion for them. I love mine and would never regret them. Furthermore, you might be very surprised to see what some of your employees have under their business attire.

Thanks, 64. It's just that I simply can't figure it out. People who are desperate for work show up at our office eager for the interview but don't bother to 'dress the part' then those same people cry that they have been out of college for two years and are still working in retail or waiting tables. When they are told to shape up their wardrobe they take it as an insult to their self-expression and individuality and act like the hirers are the assholes for having a basic dress code.

I agree with 76. I have 3 tattoos, 2 are very easily covered and the one on my wrist just takes a band-aid to hide. I thought of being "professional" before I got my tattoos. Should I now not be hired? Having a tattoo doesn't mean you're trashy. A lot of trashy people have tattoos, yes, but having one doesn't mean you're trashy. I still enjoy dressing up, but I still love flip-flops too. I know when each is appropriate. They stereotyping that went on in a couple of these replies

Bankrupt, I'm not trashy looking just because I have a nose ring. Nor do I show half of my butt or wear broken jeans. Or ANYTHING you're stated that it seems you think pierced people do. And you know what? I'd rather have a nice person working for me, than someone who spits out prejudices and shit like you do.

It makes them unworthy of being hired by my company. Let's see, who should I pick to send into the field to represent us on an assignment...the slutty looking chick with the bizarre hair color not found in nature, the tats and piercings all over her body, the low rise pants exposing her ass and thong, the scruffy pant legs that are too long and are frayed but still fail to hide her flip flops, the layers of tank tops that still fail to hide the fact that she is braless, and the makeup that m

@bankrupt I have a tiny nose stud I have glasses so it's even less noticeable. When I go to a job interview I wear dress slacks and tasteful shirts. I also wear a clear retainer. Just because I have piercings doesn't make me trash or disrespectful. But I can see your point.

Reply

Okay, let's stop equating having tattoos and piercings with "sagging pants" and the inability to know how to dress for a job (or job interview)--those are two TOTALLY different things. I have tattoos and piercings (obviously), but that doesn't mean that when I went for a job interview I didn't know how to dress: I wore a nice, long-sleeved suit like the rest of 'em. My body mods are also not indicative of any type of personality, except possibly more liberal, I suppose. They certainly

You do realize that a piercing does not define how qualified someone is for a job, or who they are as a person. Especially so if it's just one piercing. I got a tiny diamond stud in my nose about a month ago because I think it's pretty. That doesn't mean I'm going to screw up my life and become an awful person. Having a needle shoved through your face doesn't constitute a personality change.

Reply

Fuck you haters, I like my nose ring very much! A few piercings are okay, just as long as your whole face isn't pierced they can be attractive. Along with tattoos. If you don't like them, congratulations. It isn't your body so get over it.

Reply

You are missing the point. By wearing the saggy pants and having tattoos and piercings everywhere, you are creating a career hurdle for yourself. Now you have to prove that you're better than how you dress. Wouldn't it just be easier to just look appropriate? When I was first starting out in my career, you dressed for the job. Nowadays you dress for the club you plan to get drunk at after work. You are showing management that work is an incidental part of your day en route to

After reading all of your rambling posts...You really need to stop talking in circles.. No one dresses that way to work. Tattoos and piercings don't mean you wear saggy pants and flip flops. Yadda yadda, we've covered this a thousand times already. To everyone else, I think arguing with this guy is pointless, so let's leave him to his long paragraphs directed at no one but some imaginary group of people he likes to blame for all the problems of the world. This may or may not be some kind of psyc

1. Just because you have had people apply to the job with a lot of tattoos while wearing flipflops does not mean that everyone with tats does. It was like with that black kid that was murdered recently, just because he was black does not mean he was a thug and deserved to be shot down. Judging people on their careers ended years ago. People have lives outside of being peons of the system. Some people with no tattoos and piercings don't know how to dress, bathe, or act either. 2. You don't ha

Bankrupt--no one cares about your "big shot company" or wants to be a part of it especially If the qualifications are to be a ignorant, conceited ass hole such as yourself. Do us all a favor and shut the fuck up about how awesome you are. Frankly, your small insignificant brain fails to see the fact that tattoos do not equal "trashy, ass hang out sluts" God your disgusting I wish I could slap the fuck out of you right now.

dude! what is wrong with this world?! what the hell happened to respecting the people who gave you life even if that's they're only merit?! and not even for fear of an ass whipping! just because they're your parents!!

I think in this case, Op might be excused. I don't agree with slapping people at all. I don't get why people think slapping someone when they are doing something "gross" is okay. The mother should have just said, "Are you picking your nose?" That said, on the respect argument... I agree you should respect your parents and treat your elders with the respect earned by their life experience. I do not think that every parent deserves respect just because they pop you out. Som

Thank you for saying that. I was going to give the same argument, but I can never word that particular one very well. I have a personal hatred for when people tell me to respect my elders. It's usually the ones that demand respect that don't deserve it.

I don't respect people that don't deserve it, I would get into full screaming matches with my parents as a child when I demanded a good reason for their actions and they couldn't provide one. Often I'll try not to piss off people in power however, but that's not because I automatically respect them, I just find manipulation works better (pretty much the opposite of respect) What I'm saying is I don't give a damn if you're 14 or 41, if you're a dumbass you don't deserve my, or anyone else's, res

I love my mother but I find it hard to respect her. Reason? I was in a very happy relationship years ago with a very nice guy. He was nice, kind, handsome. But he was black. She thought our children would be teased because I am white. She invited him over to dinner and called him the N-word. I defended him but she just laughed and said, "But you said he was a worthless sack of shit." I never said this. She later told me it was for the best because black men would not be trusted. I

^best example of "parents can be bloody dipshits just like everyone else and don't deserve respect simply because they fucked each other and made you" I can think of. But sorry about your mum, what she did was stupid, cruel, and small minded, but she doesn't deserve to die and you don't deserve to loose a mum

I said Op could probably be excused for hitting back. However, I doubt she would have due to being in severe pain. However, Thrasher, the point is that hitting someone back does not solve anything. The mom made a stupid mistake but hitting her back doesn't make the situation better. Op was in pain but not in immediate danger where she needed to defend herself by slapping or hitting back. However, the mother does not seem to respect the Op if she is slapping her hand away like they are a child.

Reply

131 - That was a very painful story. I'm sorry things like that happen. Many parents need to learn that they must respect their child as they themselves wish to be respected. Their children are not toys or lumps of clay for them to mold into whatever it is they wish they themselves had become. They were children too once, had no understanding of the world around them, and instead of using their age and life experience against their children, ought to empathize with them. Didn't they too once wis

GoldenGrizzly, if you don't mine me asking (curiousity killed the cat) but what happened with your boyfriend after that? I'm sorry that that shit happened. I don't even understand racism. Or discrimination in general.

My mother hid my keys and refused to let me leave the house. She told me if I went to look for him she was going to destroy everything in my room. I waited two days, got my stuff out and left. I talked to him online about it, told him if I left I would have nothing and really wanted to be with him. I was going to give up my family for him. He told me he could not be with a girl who had grown up around such a biggot. He broke up with me over something I didn't even do. At some point I called my f

I take it back, you aren't loosing a mother, that does not count as a mother, that counts as a goblin masquerading as something with a human mind and heart. You are one hell of a human being to even return after that, let alone even consider forgiving her.

Yes, you are a very strong person. You're the type of person I would respect. Anyone should respect you. And I'm sorry for your boyfriend. He was wrong for not taking you back after all that. Have a good life grizzly.

Thanks. I have moved on now. I am in a relationship with a nice, wonderful man. He is awesome. He doesn't tell me I need to abandon my dying mother because she is racist. He is there to support me and help with my family. I appreciate his support as this is something I feel I need to do to help my siblings and come to terms with my own resentment. It might seem odd to some that I would help my mother after what she did or even love her, but deep down (under all the pain she caused me) I hope she

I know nose-picking can be a nasty habit, but for her first reaction to be to slap your hand away is just puzzling. It makes as much sense as stabbing someone's elbows with a fork if you dare lay them upon the dinner table even lightly!
