Person #1: Hey can I touch you there?
Person #2: No.
Person #1: Okay.
It isn’t complicated. Sam Pepper should be prosecuted for what he did.
WIL WHEATON dot TUMBLR: Consent: A Short Story
Preferably offer both choices verbally in situations like “I want to touch a stranger’s butt”. I know I’m not alone in freezing up and defaulting to whatever option was presented when caught off-guard (instead of being able to verbalize the alternate option).
Something as simple as:
Person #1: Hey, may I touch your butt, or would you rather not?
Person #2: I’d rather not.
Person #1: No worries!
Sometimes I’d be cool with a stranger, acquaintance, or friend touching my butt! With permission! And like… real consent, not just startling me on the street or in the bar so I turn into a deer in the headlights and parrot out the response they wanted.

It’s not Adam and Steve, it’s Adam and STEPHEN. With a “P-H”.
It’s not Adam and Steve, it’s Adam and Kevin. Don’t get Adam started on Steve, he was the worst.
It’s not Adam and Steve, it’s Eve and Lilith.
It’s not Adam and Steve, it’s Adam and Carol and Ted and Alice.
It’s not Adam and Steve, I mean, it was at one point, but it’s Adam and Stephanie now. You didn’t hear?
It’s not Adam and Steve, it’s Eve. Just Eve. Happy by herself.
It’s not Adam and Steve, it’s eesh, look, I’ll date at some point but I’m just too busy right now. Give it time.

It’s policy AFAIK, but the floor-monkeys rarely give much of a shit.
I’m sure most of the higher management wouldn’t like it, but most “team leads” I know have more pressing concerns than giving some disposable signage away.
The problem you may encounter trying to snag something like that is finding out when they’re re-setting the area. Depending on the schedule and who’s working, signage may come down before the store opens, or it might be at some weird time like 6pm on a Tuesday.
that post that calls british english “english (traditional)” and u.s. english “english (simplified)” is literally the most preposterous thing like a) do you understand what complexity within a language even entails and b) do you understand that english in the uk is no more traditional than english in the us bc they’ve undergone linguistic change simultaneously and c) you do know that the simplified in “chinese (simplified)” refers to the writing system don’t you
YO BITCHEZ, LOVE DUNKAROOS?

WELL HERE YOU FUCKING GO:
1 box funfetti cake mix (DO NOT add the ingredients that you usually would to actually make the cake - you need just the mix)
2 cups plain yogurt
1/2 container of cool whip.
Serve with animal crackers or graham crackers.
SIGNAL BOOST THIS. HELP ME FEED MY PEOPLE.
Oh my god
Some people take taxidermy to an entirely new level of creepy…
WHAT THE HELL ARE THOSE
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCKKKK
Oh god, it’s Assquatch.
Um. That’s the technical name. That’s a taxidermied white-tailed deer butt, flipped over so the tail makes the beard. There are people who work very hard to shave and shape the hair to make a nose.
The mouth is…well, it’s exactly what you think it probably is. Putting teeth in them and making it look like lips is the true test of the assquatch artist.
I wish like hell I was making this up, but I’m not.
Target has BARELY begun to put out their Halloween items but their mascots this year are this goddamned precious spider and fly and I want every one of these cardboard signs so bad
But all stores are actually required to rip up seasonal signage and throw it all out at the end of the season, apparently because people used to fight over them. Fuck
Um we don’t rip it up and most of us don’t care if someone grabs them… but for sure we don’t rip them up, that’s way too much effort for the time we’re given.
