Question of the day

If someone had food in their teeth or their zipper was down, would you tell them?  Would it depend on if you knew them and were close or not?

    I always tell everyone, if I can get their attention. Discretly, of course, but I’d want them to do the same for me. Some people are gracious about it, others can be downright rude though.

    I walked around the commissary for two hours with my zipper down, didn’t find out until I got home and my daughter informed me. I wish someone had taken me aside. Sure, it’s a bit embarressing, but so is walking around with my underwear possibly showing!

    Usually yes, if I knew and liked the person or was walking around with him/her. There are some situations where you can’t do it, though. Like, you’re at the other side of the table in a big client meeting. That’s hard.

    I’m not sure if I’d go up to a total stranger and do this. Everyone is so different as far as how they react to stuff like that. I think I’d be very grateful (though very embarrassed) if someone told me. (Though when I do discover such a thing on my own, at least I can hope really hard that nobody else noticed.)

    Why does God put embarrassing moments like that into our lives? That’s what I’d like to know.

    If I know them yes, if I don’t but am talking with them or whatnot I think I would tell them. I know I wouldn’t want to run around with something in my teeth!

    I’d tell them if I knew them but not if they were a stranger. I would just laugh and take a video of a stranger. 😉

  5. nikki says:

    I do tell if I know them. I’m guilty of letting people go on their way if I don’t know them. That’s horrible huh?? Joan~that’s funny!!!

  6. Joy says:

    Oh Joan, you and your video’s!!! Dumbass people!!

    Heck I tell everyone regardless of who, where or when. Of course I try to do it in such a way as not to embarrass them.

    Has anyone else ever seen a woman with her dress partially stuck into the top of her panty hose. I’ve only seen that a couple of times…. I let those go. lol

    Some times when people don’t have food in their teeth I say. “I think you used to much pepper in your lunch.” Then I gesture to my teeth.

    I can’t believe all the answers that say they would only tell their friends.

    So some where between having spinich stuck in your teeth and a stranger’s house being on fire is the line of involvement?

    It would totally depend on whether or not I knew them.

  9. SKL says:

    I guess having been told to “go to hell” for being nice to strangers a couple times has jaded me.

  10. Joy says:

    I have to know them too. I’m not sure why but it seems so personal.

  11. Tosha says:

    i’d tell them regardless who it is.

  12. DM says:

    I just went to the dentist last week, had my annual checkup…after the girl had finished cleaning/flossing my teeth my dentist came in to do whatever she had to do…she looks @ me after 5 seconds and says…”did you have an egg this morning for breakfast?” :-)…because there is egg in your beard…I’m thinking two things…#1..It’s not egg, it’s probably peanutbutter (it was) and #2, why didn’t that girl who spent the last 15 minutes working on me say anything……I will ususally tell someone if that sort of things is happening regardless of whether or not I know them….so if you ever see something out of place w/ me (even on the blog)…I want to know…:-) thanks for commenting on my blog today BTW..and whe are we going to have coffee w/ Vanessa, Amber and Sanityfound? I think it will be a hoot.

  13. Joy says:

    Yes, wouldn’t it be fun to all meet and have coffee? We’ll have to hide all chocolate if Sanity’s coming though. She’s like Winston that way!! LOL!! Wait till she gets up and sees that!

  14. DM says:

    Boy are YOU going to catch it…when Sanity finds out you compared her chocolate intake w/ that of my dear Winston…who by the way (winston/ not sanity) tipped over the garbage can today full of pig food…

    the little stinker got up on her hind feet (Winston/ not Sanity) and tried to eat 30 pounds of pig starter feed..they don’t call them pigs for nothing.

  15. Joy says:

    I felt brave since she’s in bed right now. That’ll teach her to go to sleep!! LOL!! Good thing you clarified who, Winston/not Sanity, that tipped over the pig food. I’m just LMAO!!!

  16. SanityFound says:

    *ahem* are you callin’ me, MOI, a pig??? *throws a major tantrum and then grins* I am so planning a pay back… and DM … did you just call me a Stinker???

    *glares* that is sooooo rude

    Pay back is comin and she’s a meanie I tell ya…

  19. SanityFound says:

    Awwws you guys just miss me so much yes? I just know it hmph …. aaaaah *light bulb moment* you’re scared of the payback?

  20. Joy says:

    I’m VERY scared!! I’ve seen what you do!!

  21. Jane says:

    I would tell. It’s just how I am. It doesn’t hurt that I know most of the people I see.

  22. Joy says:

    There is nothing *innocent* about you!

  23. SanityFound says:

    Ahhh wait till you meet me, you will think so to. I always wonder why people are surprised when they meet me… can’t wait for the look on your face!
