For more then one reason. 1.) You lied, and are not the original owner. 2.) The diaper is so old that they can not verify how frequently it was used. 3.) It really looks like you dried on high or soaked it in oxyclean.

My other ASSumption is, that due to the tone of your post, your email was likely rude and accusatory (and that isn’t going to get you far).

So, good for RaR sticking to their return policies and not getting screwed over.

RaR, Defective and they don’t care

I just thought I would share my experience with this company with everyone, and please let everyone you know how much the RaR company doesn’t care about its product or customers.

I bought a new RaR on DS in January or February. The woman I bought it from had bought it new from the company, tried it on her daughter, and didn’t like it. So she sold it. I got it in new, unwashed condition. I washed it as the label suggests and with All Free and Clear detergent. It went in the dryer on low. Almost immediately, I noticed that the diaper didn’t fit as well. With each wash, it seemed to be stuck to itself inside, pulling the outside in, and making it smaller. (I have other RaR diapers that I wash in the same way and have never had a problem, but those were bought used off of DS). It has gotten to the point where it doesn’t fit well on my daughter.

I contacted the company and explained the situation. I sent in a picture of the problem like they asked, and was told that it is not a defect. Holly Stevens told me, “Thank you for submitting your claim to us. Unfortunately, your diaper appears to be from a much older production run based on the color, and does not qualify for replacement. We stopped producing this color before the supplier issue occurred. Sometimes diapers will delaminate after a certain number of use/washes/trips in the dryer. Also, soaking of any kind can damage the bond between the TPU and the fabric. Certain laundry agents will also cause the TPU to age prematurely such as bleach or oxyclean. If you would like more information about care please let me know” and in another email, “The diaper that you have submitted is not defective. It was purchased before the supplier issue occurred and is free of any defects. Diapers with TPU may delaminate after a certain amount of use depending on the care routine. I know you are disappointed but hope that you will understand that we are only able to provide replacements for diapers that were produced at the time we experienced the supplier issue.”

If a ton of people don’t complain to them, then it is not defective. This is the worst company I have ever encountered. They clearly care nothing for the quality of their product or the satisfaction of their customers. I will never buy another diaper from this company, and I suggest you think twice about ever doing so in case you ever end up with a “non-defective” defective diaper like me.

    Where’s a super mod to jump in and close the thread down?
    Not that I agree with the OP- they jumped that other thread pretty quick though.

  2. Taterbug says:

    So she bought the dipe in January or February. It is now August. Either she waited an awfully long time to complain about a problem, or she used the diaper for at least 5 months before there was a problem. Who knows how long the former owner had this “new” diaper before selling it to her. The company clearly does care about their reputation, or they wouldn’t have replaced diapers from the run of PUL that actually was defective. The CS rep was very polite (not cool to post her name) in dealing with a customer who she may or may not have known was lying to her, and offered suggestions for how to avoid problems in the future. Gee, what a horrible company to do business with.

    I think I’ll call Rooms To Go later and demand a refund on my paid off couch because one of the strings is unraveling on the leather. It totally doesn’t matter that it’s six years old and I have two one year olds climbing on it every day! THEY ARE AT FAULT, DAMNIT!

  5. Redhead says:

    I was surprised at how many people thought she deserved a refund after so long.

  6. DocsNemesis says:

    Seriously. You bought it off of DS, you used it for who knows how long, and did who knows what to it.

    I’ve had worse customer service from Thirsties but I haven’t made a thread bashing the company. Lots of people get great CS from them. I’m not sure why I didn’t get the same, but whatever. I just cut my losses.

  7. kimbella says:

    RaR stopped selling G1 diapers over a year ago.

    I’m fairly sure that the G1 diapers were made with PUL and not TPU. So, this diaper would not have the same delaminating issues as the recent RaRs.

    The pink diapers were all clearanced last Spring, some as seconds, even before the rest of the other G1 diapers were clearanced to make way for the G2s.

    Why would the buyer think that RaR would exchange a diaper that they know is over 1 yr old and that she could have purchased on clearance and/or as a 2nds? No way for them to know since the buyer has no receipt.

    (I had a Lil’Joey with the delam issues. RaR didn’t even ask to see a receipt, just for me to write the invoice # from the store where I purchased it on the return form. I didn’t even have to send it back, just take a pic of the diaper with the return form. So, I think RaR is pretty easy to work with on returns!)

    I don’t see anything wrong with they buyer asking, but once RaR said “no”, she should have just moved on.

  8. XComsGirl says:

    If the post wasn’t deleted just because a few people on the site cannot have a rational, adult conversation, that is not my fault. I did, however, explain the situation and why I was upset at the company more fully in later comments because people were obviously confused about why I was upset. I also didn’t realize that the blogs were public information, or I would not have posted the CS rep’s name.

    I’m not going to restate everything I’ve already said, but I wonder why you just put my original post and not the comments or my replies to other comments. Perhaps it is because you are trying to vilify the people whose posts you put on your blog. I would request that you take this down because I was unaware that what I said was public, but it is my mistake for not researching the publicity of the forums before posting.

    I would like to state, at the least, that

    1) I did not lie. If the CS rep had asked if I were the original owner, I would have told the truth. She did not ask, I did not tell. That is not lying. All I said to her was that I bought a diaper in January or February and that I did not have a receipt. I was incorrect about it being a G2 diaper, but that wasn’t lying. It was me being misinformed.

    2) I don’t know how “old” the diaper is. All I know is that I got it in new condition.

    3) I dried on low and never used oxyclean.

    4) My email was not rude or accusatory. And you’re right, it is an “ASSumption”

    In response to the other comments:

    I did wait a while to complain because I have a lot going on and complaining about a diaper isn’t #1 on my to-do list. I also wasn’t sure how bad the diaper was going to get, until about 2 months ago, it was still wearable. Now, however, it is too small for my daughter because the laminate inside is pulling the outside in, making the diaper fit badly.

    Finally, I am not upset at the company because they did not exchange the diaper. I am upset at the reasons they give. It is a defective diaper. I have other G1 RaRs that are fine after at least a year of use. This one started to fall apart within 3 washes. I cared for it exactly as it says on the tag. A defect can happen in any part of the manufacturing process, so it isn’t impossible that this diaper is defective while others in the batch were not. I understand, now, that this diaper is older than I thought. All the CS rep had to tell me was that they cannot do exchanges for the G1 diaper because the warranty had expired. End of story. Instead, she blames my care of it. THAT is bad customer service.

  9. eeek says:

    No one actually thinks she deserves a refund. People just feel compelled to ass pat those with delusions, otherwise they wouldn’t be being supportive. MUST-BE-NICE, even to morons….

  10. KAL says:

    I have a ton of RaRs and love what Julie puts into the product.

    I’d like a return on my unders that I’ve been wearing through my pregnancy, they no longer fit well.

  11. dundundun says:

    I don’t understand how you post something on a forum and not understand that it’s public.

  20. Redhead says:

    I love it how people end their rants with “end of story”– like it somehow makes them right or justified…

  21. melmelly says:

    XComsGirl, for all your non-lying little brain knows, that woman could have bought the diaper as a second, never used it because, as you stated, it didn’t fit her DD. She then could have kept the diaper folded up, in the bottom of a drawer for MONTHS, and then decided to sell it.

    Yes, you may not have lied, but you weren’t truthful.

  22. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Well, Redhead, what end of story means is, “I’ve said my peace and since my ears/eyes are only tuned to listen to the sound/shape of my own voice/type, it doesn’t matter what you say/type because I can’t hear/read you anyway!”

  23. Munklettes says:

  24. Flat Stainley says:

    23-ROFLMAO!

  25. snafoo says:

    xcom – your thread was probably removed because you can’t talk shit about a company and trash them on DS, especially naming names of CS reps who are only doing thier job. That’s their rules, like it or not, and when you post on a free, public site supported by minions of advertisers you pretty much can’t be trashing their businesses. Apparently without those dollars DS won’t be able to keep their site up and running, virus free… 😐

    If you’re looking to not be censored, look somewhere else.

  26. žába says:

    OOOh, I think some WAHM need to make “end of story” shirts with matching YAGE panties. What an nice little set for over the top drama queen mamas.

  27. Mommy Grizzly says:

    26 – I think that’s a great idea.

    and for the EXTREMELY dramarific ones, or those like, IAS, they could say NEVER end of story!

  31. Redhead says:

    WWYD if..

    You won a prize on a FB contest.
    The person contacted you right after to get shipping info & wants to know what color of said item you want.
    You offered to pay shipping.. they declined and said they would take care of it.
    4 weeks go by, you don’t have your prize. You message the person again asking if it was shipped- they said they don’t know & will get back with you.
    2 more weeks go by, no reply, so you message again. They don’t reply.
    You discover one of your FB friends lives in the same town of the store, ask him if he could pick it up and ship to you.
    He agrees. You email the woman in charge of the contest and let her know your friend can PU the item (hoping she realizes she should have shipped it LONG AGO and will get it in the mail ASAP so your friend doesn’t have to).. she just agrees to let him pick it up.
    You tell her what day he will be by, so she can be there or let the store employees know- she says she informed them. You also ask if the item is boxed already so your friend doesn’t have to get his own packaging.. she says it will be ready for shipping.
    You also let her know (again) you color choice for said item.
    Friend goes by the store, woman running counter has no idea what he is talking about. She calls the “boss” who is in a meeting and doesn’t get out for another 20 mins..
    Friend waits. Boss gets out, doesn’t know about giveaway.. calls the person who runs the FB page. They verify details.
    They then inform friend that they never ship giveaways and that you are not given a choice for color (even though they gave you one in the beginning) nor do they supply packaging for items in giveaways.
    So, after 40 mins, you friend leaves the store, with your item.. but not the color you had asked for & without the box for shipping like was promised.

    Should I be upset? I know it was free, but this seems like horrible CS. 😦

  32. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Redhead — WTF was the contest for? Seems like it was for this business to give away their crap!

    I cannot imagine running a business like that. “When will you be shipping?” “IDK, whenever the fuck I get around to it, you know, like, never.” AND how did they expect you to get this item if they don’t ship, even at your cost?

    I would be leaving feedback for them on CDN (if possible) and definitely on their FB page. Can you leave a JAR?

    The biggest point of freebies and giveaways, is to reward customers and gain new ones that might not have been interested in what you are selling. Way to chase away your client base! I sowwy.

  33. Redhead says:

    It was an Oh Plah bracelet

  34. dundundun says:

    “IDK, whenever the fuck I get around to it, you know, like, never.”

    Redhead, that situation is terrible, but the quote above totally made me ROFL. Like, I almost literally did it. That might have to do with the alcohol I consumed, though ;(

    But yeah… I’d speak out about it. Free or not – CS still needs to represent, kwim?

  35. Redhead says:

    The store is Comfy Bummy

  36. Mommy Grizzly says:

    and THAT is why they never sent you your item!

    They were too busy sitting on their Comfy Bummy and providing customer disservice to the people that annoy them locally.

    #50 – just ugh. I really, really hope she never has cause to ever experience how accidents can happen to even the best parents. I’m one of those terrible working mothers and I live with the fear of leaving my kids in the car everyday. I don’t pretend to myself that I won’t make mistakes b/c (paraphrasing) I love my children and those that would forget them are monsters. I am honest, tell myself that at times I can be terribly absent minded, and use that fear to remind myself to check the kids all the time. I did actually lock them in the car this summer – i was right there, got them buckled in, got distracted, shut the door….and realized it was locked, with my keys and phone inside. I called the police, they were there in 5 minutes, it was not a hot day, but I still feel like shit and have taken steps to make sure I check the doors and locks and keys every single time i get out of the car. I just keep picturing the one firefighter dumping a bottle of water on my 2 yo’s head to help her cool off, and how upset both girls were when we got them out of the car….yep. I can make mistakes.

    Here’s the link in case anyone else would like to avoid it.

  54. Amazed at the comments says:

    I also was trying to find the original post as I find company rebuttals very informative [having had my own issues with companies…I’m looking at you cable company]

    Did the company likely assume she was the original owner? Likely.
    Would it have made a difference if she WAS the original owner? Doesn’t sound like it in this case judging from the response posted.

    So let me understand the reasoning…
    -Company makes a flawed product [perhaps not the norm judging from the posts, but it was mentioned by the rep that there have been issues deserving of a recall…what if some made it through to production but company was not aware of?]
    -Owner of product [not original owner, but owner nonetheless) shows an issue with the product and provides visual proof of issue (and mentions that they have other products from same company which work well, thus establishing brand loyalty]
    -Company mentions that they have had issues with other batches, but holds firm that this was not the case this time.

    So if you bought a car second hand and there was an issue with the car (and the car company had recalls for other car types under its company name), you would just say they had no right to complain? Would the posters here get mad at the driver rather then the car company? It sounds like the posts got more worked up over the person rather then the situation. I’d hope if we were in a similar scenario the company would work with us…

    Re: redhead’s issue with the facebook contest…I can’t believe they stalled for so long, I mean you WON a contest which means you won it then right? It’s like winning the price is right, then they give you the prizes a year later after you have to constantly say “Hey, remember me, I was the WINNER” I knew someone who won a radio contest, and they never mailed them the tickets to the show they were promised, and that was live on the air! (They proceeded to send a gift basket with dvds/music as a apology)

    The comments got more bitter as I read down…these are fellow moms right? Like the kind of people who can commiserate about dealing with a child that won’t sleep, not sure why they cry certain times, have each other’s back moms? Is the onus on the person to not buy second hand, or the company to rectify the situation in the case of a visible issue?

    End of Story.

  55. sourpatchbaby says:

    Does XComsGirl realize that in five months her child might have, you know, OUTGROWN the diaper? It happens all the time, you get a six to eight pound baby out of the hospital/birth center and a few months later, bam! They weight three times as much and their diapers need to be upgraded. Even on so called One Size diapers if the child has very chunky or extremely skinny thighs.

    BTW, I’m vacationing in Cali with the family. Only have The Hubby’s laptop and he doesn’t have google chrome or Firefox. There’s no way I’m risking him getting a virus through DS at all (even though in all my years in DS I personally haven’t gotten a virus off them).

  58. snafoo says:

    Well the “leave your cell phone tucked into the car seat” advice was from the lamebook link on the DS page. The topic of that thread. As if to say, you could never forgot your cell phone…

    I’ve heard better advice, like put your baby’s favorite toy on top of your purse/bag on the passenger seat as a reminder. Hang something from the mirror. If you’re frazzled/stressed/distracted enough to forget the baby, you’ll more than likely forget the cell phone too.

    Obviously some company needs to come up with an alarm that will sound when there is a bucket seat snapped in to the base or weight in a convertible car seat once the engine is off.

  59. DocsNemesis says:

    Actually I forget my cell phone all the time. I don’t really know why I have one. I also forget my purse and leave the diaper bag in the car because I know I’d forget that too. 😛

    Azmokitty is just begging karma to bite her in the ass. Accidents happen to everyone, no matter what. Its life. We aren’t infallible. Heck, I was in the midst of knitting years ago and somehow my then 3 year old manage to fall on my knitting needle and have it go through his thigh. Now, what if it’d hit a major artery? Or a vital organ? Accidents happen, thats all.

  60. Snickerdoodle says:

    WOW. Normally I think people get worked up for no reason. I was one of those people who didn’t think *I* could ever forget my kids but I understood that mistakes happen and I didn’t think parents who did should be prosecuted and I also never wanted to say that I would NEVER forget my kids.

    Well, then I read that article that someone posted about the Fatal Distraction. After I wiped the tears from my eyes and my stomach settled down from the queasy sick nauseaous feeling I continued to read the thread and what the close minded rigid person who sells eco stools on etsy is saying and now I DO feel worked up and angry. In my opinion People like her are the reason that nothing is being done about this seemingly increasing tragedy. ie car seat alarms etc

    Anyway.

    I am going to start putting my purse in the backseat. I don’t think I could ever forget my baby but WHY take the chance? And yes I love my baby and I don’t ‘think my purse is more important than my baby.

  61. dawbs says:

    I so want to beat someone after reading that thread.

    Have any of us ever gotten somewhere and thought “huh, did I leave the iron on/door unlocked/oven closed/etc?”
    If you’re capable of risking burning down your house (and apartment–and endangering potientally 100’s of lives in doing so) because you’re fallible and human, you’re probably capable of having a moment where you endanger your child through forgetfulness.

    ANd know what’s most infuriating? The “it can’t happen to me” mentality is what keeps people form taking steps to prevent it from happening. If *ONLY* bad parents could possibly commit this horrible crime than if I take steps to prevent it from happening, I’m admitting I’m a bad parent. Therefore, I shouldn’t tie a pacifier to my purse strap/set my purse and cell phone in the back seat/etc.
    (I fully plan on doing all of the above. Hell, I know me and my own habits–good and bad. I NEVER put the dog in the car w/o tying a leash to my purse handle because I know that I AM capable of forgetting the dog in the car. I never have. And I take steps to make sure I won’t. But I’m capable of it)

    I seriously just did this because I thought some of the stuff was funny, and there are so many things that get deleted and no one sees it. I don’t think DS is bad, just very funny. I hope no one is really offended by this, and if they are, they are more than welcome to let me know. I am not against deleting something if someone asks.

    Now that everyone seems finished attacking me, I would like you to delete this post. I emailed DSDM2 about this yesterday, but I have no clue how often emails are checked. For all I know my email went straight to the spam folder and was never seen. I appreciate your understanding and empathy on this matter. 🙂

    So-if you had a sudden bad clogged duct that turned quickly into mastitis and over the course of 5 days refused to get better, but you felt ok, would you go to the hospital? What if said clogged duct felt like it was at least the size of a golf ball and maybe bigger? I’m worried its actually an abscess but I really have no idea and I don’t have insurance…I’ve never had this much of a problem getting rid of mastitis though. And I’ve had it over a dozen times over the years. Nothing comparing to this though. Ibuprophin is keeping the fever down though and I actually feel ok, which seems so friggin odd….

    I know, I know, I should go in. I’m just so broke and already have to pay for a 3 day hospital stay for my fiance 😦

    You want my empathy after insulting the blog, posters, and myself? Not going to happen. Buhbye now, buhbye.

  83. Justanothermom says:

    That girl that expects her husband to stop grieving because she says it’s time just really pisses me off. What a beeotch. I would like to slap the shit out of her. I can’t believe how some people make everything about THEM. yeah, it isn’t easy, but you can’t force him to be happy just because you want some help changing diapers. someone please slap her.

    I hope her not coming back to the forum means she got a clue, but I somehow doubt it. I’m sure everyone that responded is just a big meanie and they just don’t understand (that they world revolved around her)

  84. reallytiredmommy says:

    Now i’m confused. 84 are you talking about the same girl that the thread is about? Ididn’t see her other whiny thread on ds. And I still cant get into cdn. I’m gonna throw a fit cause darnit I wanted those shoes!

  85. DocsNemesis says:

    Srsly. After a month, I could see being annoyed to some extent. After less than a week? Uh, no. It sounds like he’s still working, which would be my primary concern, especially if he’s the only bread winner for the family. Though even there, I wouldn’t hesitate to tell him to take a couple of days off. We can cut back somewhere to make it happen (if he didn’t have sick days/vacation days or a savings account-which even our poor butts have!!). But yeah, he’s still providing for his family financially, let him work through his emotions in his own time. Jeeze.

  86. DocsNemesis says:

    Yay, frozen diaper lady!!

  87. eeek says:

    Frozen diaper lady is completely insane. I am astonished she decided to re-create her frozen child story again.

    And that chic whose husband is grieving his grandpa- she’s awfully selfish. I hope she actually reads those responses and realizes this many people may have a point. I know there have been times in my marriage when I do much more, and times when DH does much more. I’ve had horrible pregnancies and work stuff, he’s had his own things, it’s always best when we are both participating fully but all that really matters is that one of us is there to make sure everything is done and the kids are taken care of. Without that, our family wouldn’t be anywhere near the haven it is, I know that whatever happens we’ll just deal with it.

    And that’s without bitching, too- I can’t imagine how awful it would make me feel if my dad died, and a week later my husband came and told me to snap out of it, I’m hurting the family. Let the children learn about grief, it’s part of being human. She stomps her foot and says how long should she wait, weeks/months/years, well, ONE WEEK is not any of those. She needs to grow up.

  88. eeek says:

    Also, Xcom is silly. Now it’s becoming a pattern, too. She needs to work harder on the jedi mind trick, bitchy isn’t the main idea. She’s never going to be able to get people to do the insane crap she demands if she doesn’t get past that……

  89. XComsGirl says:

    I really don’t see how I was “bitchy”. And I did not once insult the blog posters or you (but you all have done nothing but insult me). I sent a private email to you asking you to live up to your word (or at least the word of the site owner). When I received no response, I posted the same request as a comment since comments are moderated. Not only did you post my comment asking for the post to be deleted, but you post the private email?

    I seriously just did this because I thought some of the stuff was funny, and there are so many things that get deleted and no one sees it. I don’t think DS is bad, just very funny. I hope no one is really offended by this, and if they are, they are more than welcome to let me know. I am not against deleting something if someone asks.” And yet, I’m called a liar?

    Have your little drama-fest. I clearly cannot reach your caring side.

  90. Mommy Grizzly says:

    The email was only private until you hit the send button. Once it was sent to her, it was hers to do with as she pleased. All comments are not moderated, if you have posted before, you do not get moderated unless you include links.

    What you posted on a public site is public. Nobody has to bend to your will just because you demandask them to. If you don’t like what was said about you, maybe you should reevaluate your way of being to make yourself less of a target. Seriously, WE were giving our opinion of your self-righteous demands and indignation at the way you were treated when the company denied said demands. The bottom line is simple: make yourself LESS of a target and you will feel SIGNIFICANTLY less insulted by comments made about you.

  91. Mommy Grizzly says:

    oooh oooh — 93 was directed at 92!

  92. DSDM2 says:

    Xcom, if you didn’t know that something you posted online is public, you are an idiot. A quick google search shows us your public photo bucket, cafe-mom account, reviews on hotels and other products, and where you live. If you are worried about online safety then you have more to worry about then this blog entry. The more times you post that quote isn’t going to change anything, we use our discretion as to what should and shouldn’t be removed. TDM and I talked about it, and you don’t meet our requirements.

    I am not removing it. TDM and I have removed 3 (A TOTAL OF 3) responses to blog posts in the years this has been here, 2 of those were only edited to take out a specific content. All of which were our choice based on real reasons. You want this removed because you look like an ass. Not gonna happen. 95% of the responses on that thread didn’t agree with you, most of us here don’t either. Many of the posters here own CD stores, and what you did was try to swindle a store. That doesn’t go over well with any of them. It wasn’t right. Warranties don’t transfer owners in the CD world. Read the stickies on FSOT (and while you are at it, the rest of the rules on DS since you don’t know them).You don’t know “for sure” the history on that diaper. Was it sold as a second? Was it bought on sale or clearance? Are you sure the seller told the truth? No. That is why the warranty doesn’t transfer. People like you just make the rest of us want to smack the computer screen.

    You come across in your posts as a condescending bitch, and that is how the email came across to me as well. I am guessing your email to RaR was the same.

    As for my “caring side”… I was nice enough to take the photo of your child down, as well as your location, would you rather I put them both back up?

    You made more then one do NOT BST list with your bullshit. Mine for sure.

    End of Story.

    Oh, XComsGirl, give it up. Pull up your Big Girl Panties and deal with the fact that you have showed your backside all over the internet. The Drama Mamas don’t delete the truth just because it’s embarrassing. How things go from here is up to you. If you own up to acting like a douche and avoid doing so in the future, you may be able to show your face again. If not, well, these ladies will be sure to enjoy the show.

  95. reallytiredmommy says:

    Could someone please report crazy diaper lady? I mean this time the post is just rambling. I think she’s had too much b double e r.

  96. DocsNemesis says:

    So can I giggle a little? Isn’t -40 Celsius the same as -40 Fahrenheit? Cause it occurred to me that I’ve been in -40 F weather before in highly inappropriate clothing and my bum was one of the warmest parts of my body. Its insulated. 😛

    I’ve also been in -10 F weather in jeans, skate shoes, and a hoodie, playing in snow. I would not suggest that to anyone. Just thought I’d throw that out there.

  97. Redhead says:

    Frozen diaper lady doesn’t drink b double e r!! She is a committed Above Rubies supporter, don’tchaknow!?

    After she posted her first child neglect thread, she msgd me to buy inserts (I had some listed)
    for, I suppose, her new pocket diapers which magically don’t freeze in -40 “that’s celsius baby” weather.
    :/ She always rambles.

  98. Redhead says:

    and Docs, you’re right- someone should point out to her that -40 C and -40 F are the same thing.

  99. DSDM2 says:

    -40* C and -40*F are the same.

    She is 25-26wks pregnant so she doesn’t drink beer.

    And I still think she is nuts. I don’t get how you would have frostbite on your ASS before a finger. I guess those guys climbing Everest (who wear diapers I would assume since no one wants to hang out their penis in that weather) need to be alerted that there is a new injury to watch for.

  100. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I talked to my husband who was with the 10th Mtn Div for 9 years and went through extensive cold weather survival training. He said it’s possible to get FB on stuff, usually guys “stuff” in cold weather like that if you are under prepared. He pointed out, that if the kid was sitting in a car seat with say jeans over a diaper, that it’s possible for the rest of the kid to be warm and still get chilblains (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilblains) on a tush because the cold weather would have frozen the plastic of the car seat. The FIRST thing this mom should have done, according to DH, is take kid out of car seat and wrap in a blanket. That is far more effective than putting a blanket on the lap of a child. Also, he saw the picture of the family and said, “Why the fuck were they not all huddled together if they were broken down?” He said the moral is the best cure is prevention.

    Oh yeah, and about the mom having to thaw the kid in a bath. He said the kid would have most likely gone into shock if she put it in anything except a cold water bath because of the super drastic temp difference.

  101. Redhead says:

    She should keep some of those emergency heat packs in the van with her.
    I don’t know why I am suggesting this. Not like she is going to listen to any sane advice.
    Man, she makes me so angry.

  102. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, Redhead, what would you know, I mean, you aren’t a northern mama so you cant have any good advice.

    I cant even tell you how excited we used to get when the weather would WARM UP to -40. The coldest I’ve experienced for any significant length of time was -70 before windchill and the ice fog was so thick that busses couldn’t see students. Schools shut down because pipes burst. Eyelashes would break of just from the moisture of your eyes. It is super cool and super annoying. More than half of my life I didn’t even have access to a car, had to walk everywhere, and I’ve still managed to never ever get frost bite.

  103. XComsGirl says:

    #93: My comments were moderated until recently. I guess the site moderates posters until they post a certain number of times? Or the owner decides to allow posters to post without moderation after a few posts? I do not know. I’m not asking anyone to bend to my will. I am asking people to be considerate and empathetic. Put yourself in my shoes, how would you feel? And if you say that you wouldn’t care, I think that you are lying to yourself.

  104. DSDM2 says:

    You comments were moderated for your second post because you misspelled your email on the first post. So WordPress thought you were a new poster when you fixed it.

  105. DSDM2 says:

    You mean be empathetic and sympathetic like you were to RaR? Not likely.

  106. Redhead says:

    Xcomsgirl, personally- I wouldn’t publicly post that I was trying to rip off anyone. Nor would I try to rip anyone off in the first place.
    It isn’t going to be deleted, so you might as well accept it as consequences of your actions and move on.

  107. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I would care, if I’d bought the diaper brand new and had returned the diaper immediately when I realized it was defective. I don’t expect a small business to replace my diapers after I’ve had them for at least 6 months and bought them second hand. Really, EVERYBODY has limits on returns and defective products. The fact that you not only didn’t like what they had to say and went so far as to shit talk about them but then didn’t like it when the table was turned and your peers were shit talking you. Be realistic. Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t realize you shit chocolate while the rest of us normal folk shit – well – shit.

    And, please don’t strain yourself in presuming you know how I think or feel. I promise, that’s a game you’ll never win.

    I have to wonder, if your monster was assigned to you or you are just that lucky in the draw. Either way, it’s ironic, seeing as how your brain is obviously just sitting on top of your head.

  108. Redhead says:

    GM, you crack me up!

  109. Mommy Grizzly says:

    See? Now THAT post was insulting. The rest was just people pointing out their opinions. ::goodvibes::

    I love you, Redhead.

  110. XComsGirl says:

    I will state for the record one more time that I was never trying to swindle RaR. I was merely trying to get a defect replaced, repaired, or at the very least, an acknowledgement of that fact that the diaper may have been defective. Yes, it was bought second-hand. Could the woman I bought it from have lied about it not being washed? Of course. For all I know she dumped sulfuric acid all over it, danced around it naked, all while speaking in tongues. That is not the problem. That has never been the problem.

    The problem I have is that RaR blamed me for the damage to my diaper. They did not once say that perhaps the diaper may have been poorly made. They didn’t acknowledge that maybe they made a mistake while making that diaper. Even then, they could have just mentioned that the warranty on it was over and they could do nothing. I would have understood and went on my merry way (which is what the “end of story” part of my 1st comment was referring to, please re-read that and stop interpreting it as if I am nothing but a whiny bitch). Instead, they took the “there’s nothing wrong with us, it’s obviously you” approach. That is not okay. As you said, most of you have stores of your own. Would you ever treat a customer that way?

    As for why I want my post deleted: I read the comment that was written saying that this blog was “for fun” and that it wasn’t meant to “offend” anyone. I took that to mean that you would be empathetic and understanding when a person who you are insulting and making fun of is not happy about that. What did I do to deserve such treatment? I wrote a post to inform people that the RaR company has bad customer service so that anyone who feels that customer service is important when deciding whether or not to buy a product can make an informed decision. I did not realize that I was “bashing” a company by doing so. Was I speaking unkindly about it? Yes, but I was not untruthful. But free speech is not so free after all. And no, I didn’t realize that the site was public. I read as much as I could about the site before joining. If I had read that part, I obviously forgot it. But go ahead and get on my case for forgetting that. How about I just forget that my child is in the car, then you’ll be understanding….But that is not why I want the post removed. I want it removed because you have published my screenname from diaperswappers, and yet I do not know who you are. My name has been soiled by you. I know you will say that I soiled my own name, but groups hold more sway than an individual. I cannot change the fact that people will see something like this, see how you interpret what I say, and let that sway their opinions of me. And if you did look at my feedback for diaperswappers, you would see that I have great feedback. The fact that you would ban me from b/s/t with you because you do not like my opinion is odd. I would think that my financial reliableness would far outweigh your opinion of my post. If you feel confident that your products are described as honestly as possible online, there should be no reason why you would not want to trade with me. But if you don’t want to trade with me now, many other people who haven’t posted here but read this blog may feel the same way. You are defaming my name all for a fun read.

    I try to be as private as I can online, but it is hard to balance privacy with the need to be social. I have already tightened up security and privacy in anything else linked with that screenname, but there’s only so much I can do without deleting my accounts or just putting false information.

    I also don’t understand how I am coming across as a “condescending bitch”. I realize that my words may seem “cold” or emotionless. I purposely stick to fact and try to leave all emotion out of my online writing to decrease the amount of miscommunication possible. It is the responsibility of the reader, though, to have an open mind when reading someone’s writing. I cannot change the fact that you had a negative interpretation of me because of your reaction my DS post. If you just stop and re-read all that I have written, you would, hopefully, realize that I have had no bad intentions in anything. I am merely trying to clear my name and not let my emotions sway my words because, in all honesty, I am really hurt by all of this. Clearly, though, you do not care about that.

    If you had just copied and pasted my post without posting my name, picture, location, etc., I really would not have had a problem. I appreciate you taking the location and picture down, but it does not change the fact that my reputation at diaperswappers is now going to be affected by this blog. Perhaps I can entreat you to delete all information but the actual post that you copied?

  111. DocsNemesis says:

    What the company said was entirely true though. You just said yourseld that the diaper could have been washed. You have no idea what she used on the diaper that could have potentially eaten away at the PUL. Even sitting in a bad environment for an extended period could have weakened it. That’s not the companies fault.

    They also have no way of knowing how long you actually used it. And if they never had any reports of that version having PUL issues, why would they think yours does?

    I think you’re mad that you couldn’t get a new diaper for free and now you’ve made yourself look like…well, an ass. Instead of defending your actions, get off your high horse and admit maybe you went overboard.

    And for the record-I bought 3 brand new Thirsties covers off of someone on DS. I had non stop leaking problems, contacted Thirsties, and was told it was my fault because their diaper covers are “#1 in the US!” and therefore they couldn’t be at fault. I never made a thread bitching about it. I’ve casually mentioned it once or twice in threads but thats about it. I really have no idea what could’ve happened to those things before I got them, they didn’t work, I moved on. You should probably do the same. (And also ftr, I am very broke and losing that money hurt, especially at the time)

  112. DocsNemesis says:

    And back to the frozen diaper lady-she’s saying this happened in a snowsuit?! O_o

    And that skin freezes in under a minute there? How can you do anything at all then? I’m so confused….

    I think maybe she’s just looking for a reason to restash. lol.

  113. Redhead says:

    Docs, I used to read Above Rubies. Then I realized it was a bunch of crap about women who think it is their “high calling” in life to stay pregnant 99% of their time on earth, despite- if their husband is abusive, he doesn’t provide heat in the winter, them having a barrage of health issues which they “think” is cured by staying pregnant, & my favorite was the mom who had a DH with severe brain damage (from an accident) which left him with the mental capacity of a 10 yr old and quite disabled, yet she was still getting pregnant by him and “loving every minute of their life” while their highschool aged children worked and supported preggers mom and Dad who couldn’t really get up off the couch.

  114. Redhead says:

    So with that, Patooty or whatever her name is.. there really will be no sense in any of her decisions or posts.

    CJ you should be a personal shopper. You always know where to get the goods!

  125. CJ says:

  126. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Nothing like a job that pays you to spend other peoples money, seriously!

  127. CJ says:

    No kidding. Right now my “job” involves me spending lots of DH’s money on fabric and yarn and coming out in the hole.

  128. downy20 says:

    While I firmly believe that RAR was right in this situation, I have been on the receiving end of very poor customer service also. I had a brand new, never worn G2 with a crushed snap. I sent it back on my dime to be fixed. It came back and looked like a kangaroo put the new snap on. There is now a hole where the first snap was removed. If they suck at putting snaps on, maybe they should just replace the diaper. Or they could take some lessons in working a snap press. They never even responded to my second email letting them know politely that I was appalled by their customer service. So this lady may be way off base in her situation and Julie might be great but her staff does really suck sometimes.

  136. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’m not really going to insert my opinion on whether or not she needs stuff, but, she says on her MySpace that she is in a relationship and has at least one kid and someone congrats her on a pregnancy. That’s 2 kids, 2 adults. How does that make her a low income family of 5? Now, he totally could have had a kid, but…

    I’d not do it if it were my $$.

  137. Mommy Grizzly says:

    OOh, ok my opinion couldn’t stay out for long. She has like 4 posts and already has a IHA and ISO? wow. Her first 2 posts were entering a FFS lotto, her 3rd was asking about a trade and her 4th was to post the IHA/ISO thread asking for donations.

    Her myspace says she uses her laptop to meet people because she is shy but she has an opinion on everything, but she cannot be bothered to post a few opinions in the forums before she’s asking for handouts?

    IDK, maybe it’s because I’ve never been in a kind of need where I asked strangers for things, but I just don’t like that vibe.

    I think it IS weird though. I guess she could be trying to throw people off the scent by saying negative things? I don’t know. I saw that FB ad for Comfy Rumps just this week and was looking at them but this thread has turned me off from them. It is just a little too weird.

    154 – I think your 2 year old and my 3 year old come from similar stock. I keep powdered milk in the pantry just for such times. If DH is on your shit list, send him back out for milky to go with your milky way!

  153. Snickerdoodle says:

    153-Hah hah! I have no idea why that name jumped into my head when I was “creating my identity” for this blog. I guess I was just really hungry! 😀

  154. Redhead says:

    Someone pointed out to me that the comfy Rumps look like Kawaii diapers?
    I haven’t ever paid attention to Kawaii so I don’t know..

  155. Flat Stainley says:

    Comfy Dumps actually lives near me. He posts daily on our local Craigslist about 47,892 times per day, to be precise. He doesn’t know the difference between suedecloth and microfibre. His diapers are bought on wholesale through ebay from China.

  156. Mommy Grizzly says:

    So, Flat, did you count every single one of the posts…?? 😉

    Really though, who names their cloth diaper company “Comfy Dumps”? Really? I mean, really??

  157. Flat Stainley says:

    162-nope! But they got irritating when I was stalking to grow my stash. Not because I don’t think that small business shouldn’t advertise there, but because it was often first on the list and I’d have to scroll past it to get to what I was looking for and I definitely was NOT looking for dipes made in China, likely by kids who, in an ideal world, could be my childrens’ playmates.

    Oh and they are called Comfy Rumps, I changed it to Dumps to be a Beeotch. I need my chocolate fix!

  158. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL you rock. Lets go eat snickerdoodle.

  159. CJ says:

    I just had someone asking me about comfyrumps and kawaii diapers today. I had never heard of the comfyrumps ones before. She was saying that the kawaii brand are MIC but supposedly fair trade? Aren’t they like $9 a piece? How on earth are they fair trade at that price point?

  160. Grizzly Mommy says:

    I am going to go make milkshakes with hand whipped cream. Vanilla/Banana and Strawberry. Neener neener!

  161. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Shitola. messed up my name. Have a comment in moderation.

    I am going to go make milkshakes with hand whipped cream. Vanilla/Banana and Strawberry. Neener neener!

  162. CJ says:

    poop. Now I need to make cookies. I made the pioneer woman raspberry cream pie last week and it was delicious. Very easy too, highly recommended for a hot weather dessert.

  163. Flat Stainley says:

    AH do reckon ah need me some PIE! YUM!
    Mommy Grizzly, I’ve been having blueberry-banana-strawberry-rasberry smoothies every day for breakfast for a month! Neener!

  164. CJ says:

    Who knits and loves regretsy? Did you see that she is looking for knitters to make those horrifying masks?

  165. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Flat — I’ve been throwing up every morning for a month. Neener!

  166. Flat Stainley says:

    Haha
    .
    .
    That Tin Man mask! Scary!
    Now I must put 1 more to bed.

  167. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’m 14 weeks tomorrow. I have NEVER had such bad all day sickness as with this critter. My sister thinks she’s a girl because she’s already a pain in the ass. I swear, I’ll post as soon as I find out!

  168. CJ says:

    ugh. My first boy gave me morning sickness every day like clockwork in the morning for the first 13 weeks and then it stopped. The next one was all day randomly through my whole pregnancy.

  169. Mommy Grizzly says:

    My three boys were like cakewalks besides the back ache and dancing on my bladder. This one… not so easy.

  170. Redhead says:

    I have 3 girls. They each gave me ALL DAY sickness to where I was hospitalized during each pregnancy for severe dehydration.
    Pregnancy/labor and me don’t mix well at all. 😦
    I want more, but man.. I don’t know if I could survive another pregnancy and awful labor again.

  171. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, I’ve been really lucky. Not bad pregnancies and awesome labors even with nurses from hell. My sister had similar issues and she has 3 girls, too. Maybe it’s something with girls!

  172. Redhead says:

    Could be..though I have friends who have had girls and GREAT pregnancies.
    Since I don’t have a boy, I have nothing to compare the girls too 🙂

  173. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Want a boy? I have a couple I could spare.

  174. kateri25 says:

    MG I have two girls and one boy. Sick all day everyday with the girls (second one did stop before the end but the first all the way through a pregnancy) With my boy life was great I got mild nausea ONCE. Let’s just say if I have anymore I want it to be a boy because I HATE getting sick. Redhead thank goodness I was not as bad as you with the sickness I hate hospitals.

  175. Snickerdoodle says:

    164- I do look tasty don’t I?

    I have two girls and the morning sickness with both was HORRIBLE. Morning sickness my ass! Try all day sickness. It lasted from morning til night for about 4 months. Luckily it cleared up JUST in time for Thanksgiving! 🙂

    Redhead yikes! I would read stories about women who went through that with their morning sickness and feel grateful for my experience and truly amazed and in awe that these women were able to survive that and THEN have another baby! I don’t know if I could do that!

    I want a boy! Don’t know if it will ever happen though….

  176. DSDM2 says:

    Back to the littlelinzay thing… Hasn’t Montgomery WARDs been closed for almost 10 years? http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=11027784&postcount=12

  177. smartassmama says:

    I caught a glimpse of that, liners right? Just seeing that it was a diapering item carried by a chain store made me curious about its age, and I don’t really know anything about Wards, except for hearing the name on Oprah and the Bozo show when I was a kid (yes, I have a strange memory).

    And I count my blessings all the time about morning sickness and I’m thankful and hope my future pregnancies are as nice in that department. :blush:

  178. smartassmama says:

    I thought begging wasn’t allowed? And that spotym. . . [something or another] is really throwing on the guilt about people not sending her anything.

  179. Redhead says:

    aww, and Linzy has the lonely sad face for her mood. Where’s my tissues?

  180. DocsNemesis says:

    I had super easy pregnancies with all of mine, until my 2nd youngest and getting HELLP. That was kinda like..whoa. Where’d that come from??

    With my youngest I had morning sickness for the first time in my life. I kept saying “omg, if I’d had this every time no way would I have had so many!”

  181. smartassmama says:

    Tell me I’m not the only one who does an irritated head scratch when someone uses the ` (button next to the 1 key) instead of the ‘ (apostrophe). One of the new mods is all “LO`s don`t wouldn`t, and I don’t understand why you’d want to do things the hard way.

  182. Redhead says:

    188- Maybe she thinks it is artsy or something…weird.

  183. smartassmama says:

    haha. Anytime I hear/read the word artsy, I think artsy fartsy, and my inner Beavis and Butthead chuckle.

  184. dundundun says:

    188, yeah. There’s a girl on a different forum I frequent that does that. I’m like, WTF? The only way I could somewhat agree with it is if your apostrophe key is broken.

  185. Flat Stainley says:

    My first pregnancy was super easy-I upchucked twice, and one of those times was because of the ambulance attendants parking me on the stretcher just beside the running exhaust pipe. Nice, huh?
    My second pregnancy gave me morning sickness all day until 8 months. I had to eat crackers while teaching kids to swim. 🙂 Then, once while guarding, I got sick in a deck bucket while guarding the pool and I had to call it a day.
    Third pregnancy; not quite so severe, but still pretty bad. Still I was on Diclectin for the first 6 months.
    I am kinda not really looking forward to going sailing in the near future because the last couple of times I went the morning sickness + the waves had me leaning so far over the side I thought I would be able to wash my face in the saltwater. 😦 This time will be better, I hope.

  186. Flat Stainley says:

    A girl`s gotta do what a girl`s gotta do. Strange. A lefty, maybe? Haha 😀

  187. dundundun says:

    TOTALLY OT-

    My daughter and I went to a birthday party for a friends kids Saturday. Today (Monday) one of the other children in attendance was diagnosed with chicken pox.

    What’s the likelihood of my tot getting it? I mean if it happens, it happens, but I’m just wondering what the chances are?

  188. Flat Stainley says:

    I exposed my DD to chickenpox 4 times before she got it.

  189. Amber says:

    I don’t know… I’m left handed and seem to be able to type correct punctuation.. 🙂

  190. Flat Stainley says:

    It was a joke, referencing the left-sided slant of many lefties. 🙂

  191. .bin. says:

    It’s possible they have a french keyboard.

    If I switch to french mine does that.
    wouldn`t couldn`t shouldn`t can`t

  192. melmelly says:

    A girl I was in college with said the keyboards were weird when she did her exchange in Mexico.

  193. melmelly says:

    But then again, it could be someone doing the ` just because they want to, or think it is the proper key.

    I have been severely annoyed with the amount of people I have on FB that have been using “your” instead of “you’re”. Another one that is driving me nuts: DID’NT. I thought she messed up, but it was every single time!

  194. JustPeachy says:

    It drives me absolutely insane when I see definately. THERE IS NO FUCKING A IN DEFINITELY!!!

  195. dundundun says:

    “Tomarrow” makes me want to punch a puppy. Hard.

  196. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL I love you guys. Seriously.

  197. Flat Stainley says:

    Last week, DH was singing along to that song “Sweet Old Jello Liner” instead of ‘Jet Airliner’. LOL I bugged him about it all weekend.

  198. bittymomma says:

    204, sounds like my sister. She thought the Beach Boys song “Kokomo” was pronounced “Poconos” and only when they starting talking about going to Jamaica for a honeymoon and she started singing it did we realize!

  199. Syrinx says:

    SepErate bugs me. Didn’t anyone tell them there’s “a rat” in the middle of sepArate?

  200. Redhead says:

    I hate when people write “ya” or “yah” instead of “yeah”.

  201. melmelly says:

    Redhead, does that also include “yay”? Around here, “yeah” is a form of “yes”, whereas “yay” is a form of “hurray!!!” or “yippee!!!”

    I can see “yah” being pronounced when someone is saying “yah mon”, AKA Jamaican style.

  202. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yah, Redhead, that pisses me off, too.

  203. DocsNemesis says:

    Ya, that bugs me too.

  204. smartassmama says:

    I do too!

    Funny about the songs, and it reminds me of my daughter. She sings Twinkle Twinkle Little Star when her brother cries (or if we ask) and says, “Like a Dinosaur up in da sky!” She’s so quiet and sweet with the rest of it, but shouts that line. It’s hilarious!

  205. bearista says:

    ya is a regional thing. you will find ya in the upper midwest more often (IL, WI, MN)…think ja (Swedish/Norweigen for yes).

  206. Aj says:

    With all the recent photo threads on DS, my biggest pet peeve has become people saying…”This is a photo of DH and I” It’s DH and ME!!! If it was just a picture of yourself, you wouldn’t say this is a photo of I! Cannot stand it.

  207. shelbell says:

    The one that drives me nuts is rEdiculous. OMG! It’s ridiculous, seriously.

  208. Redhead says:

    Not DS related.. but is she really asking $30 for these horrible stained woolies?
    Or is my monitor just being weird and they looked stained?

  209. Mommy Grizzly says:

    215- linky?

  210. Mommy Grizzly says:

    no, your monitor doesn’t show them as green. They are definitely stained. Crotch and knees are brownish.

  211. Redhead says:

    $30.. Wow. A lot of her stuff looks dingy to me, and pricey for the condition!

  212. DocsNemesis says:

    Look stained as heck to me too.

  213. Flat Stainley says:

    There is more stain on those longies than there is on my front porch. :/

  214. sciencefair says:

    221, lol

  215. Syrinx says:

    213. Absolutely! I was beginning to think someone changed the rules of grammar and I missed it.

  216. mylilgirls says:

    This is completely unrelated to anything ds or diaper related, but I ordered a wifi usb antenna for my laptop and the disk it came with had ‘read only’ files in it instead of driver files. I emailed the company I ordered it from and told them the problem. Their solution? Insert the CD and try to install the driver files. Really?! I shouldn’t complain too much because I at least got a swift response, but I hate it when customer service doesn’t really read the customer’s emails. I clearly stated in my first email what the problem was. I just want my wifi to work. I’m tired of using my bberry for everything internet related. /offrant

  217. Kimbella says:

    OT: I saw these at my local health food store today. http://hyenacart.com/fashionablygreenbaby/index.php?c=27&p=57927

  218. not me at all says:

    I just got my second strike for “bashing” FG for saying they were shooting themselves in the foot.

  219. DocsNemesis says:

    Lame. Wait…wasn’t that the thread that didn’t actually mention the company name? I mean yeah, we all know what it is, but still…

    And I have to agree btw. I actually got lucky and got all of my stuff pretty quickly, no problems. But gah, the length of time some people have been waiting coupled with the completely craptastic customer service? Yeah….

  220. not me at all says:

    It was and then I mentioned the name and H2BAM edited it out for me and then another mod gave me a strike and insists that the forum rules say that outing a company is an automatic strike.

    Why the hell do they want to protect FG so bad?

  221. slugwaterbug says:

    thanks for digging on littlelinzy for me. she sent me her address but i decided not to send her anything. especially since things are tight for us right now too.

  222. LuvsDrama says:

    I think the mods are going strike happy!!! I just got a strike for posting an ISO for a coupon!! I got a PM with a linky to the rules about not selling coupons. Well right there in the rules it states that no that they can’t be SOLD because they have no cash value and they are free so share the love!! So i Pm’d her back and stated that no where does it say you can’t share coupons, in fact it states “Share the love”. I also Pm’d an Admin, and reposted my ISO. The mod ignorned my PM that day and the next day Pm’s me a strike. Whatever….

  223. Flat Stainley says:

    Okay, so who is having difficulties loading on DS? My computer froze while I was trying to make a post. I restarted it and poof! My account no longer exists!?

  224. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Did you get BANNED, Flat????

  225. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I just tried it, it loaded just fine for me. Try clearing your cookies and typing in the address.

  226. Flat Stainley says:

    That’s what I’d like to know. 😀

  227. Mommy Grizzly says:

    want me to check for you? email me your DS name: roguebruin at yahoo

  228. Redhead says:

    Ooooh, the drama continues!

    On a side note. I am having a craptastic day. Does someone have some yummy yarn for me to buy to make me happy? Less than $50 would be nice. 🙂

  229. Flat Stainley says:

    MommyGrizzly, I just emailed you. I hope I got your addy right!

  230. Mommy Grizzly says:

    nothing so far. Sorry you are having a bad day, Redhead. Want a sour patch kid?

  231. Flat Stainley says:

    MommyGrizzly, this is stupid of me, but what comes after the first part of your email?

  232. Flat Stainley says:

    Is it .com?

  233. Redhead says:

    No, I just want something pretty to look at 😉

  234. Mommy Grizzly says:

    aww shucks, why didnt you say so? I could send you a picture of ME!

  235. Flat Stainley says:

    Haha!

  236. Kirsty says:

    If you are who I think you are, Flat, then you are not banned. And I think you are veeeeeery chilly…at least here in Edmonton where I live 😉

  237. Flat Stainley says:

    244-Chilly!? Nope! I just got back from a walk and I am HOT! 😉 But ya got me curious! 😀

  238. Kirsty says:

    Hmmm either I have it all wrong or I suck doodie at being cleverly vague.

    Anyhoo, nice to know it is hot and balmy where you are. It’s looking like a long, cold winter ahead of us.

  239. Flat Stainley says:

    Message Mommy Grizzly and ask her. She can tell you if you’re right. 😉

  240. Mommy Grizzly says:

    yeah, and you guys REALLY need to watch for those ASS FREEZING diapers. I mean, as an Alaskan mama who has spent more than half my life NORTH of the Arctic Circle, I obviously have NO idea how cold -40 is and how quickly a diaper can freeze to a child’s tush.

    Consider this a snide PSA… I love most Canadian mamas, that one? not so much.

  241. Redhead says:

    Kirsty, I know who she is too. Msg me if you want as well.

  242. Mommy Grizzly says:

    yeah, Mommy Grizzly needs emails. 🙂

  243. not me at all says:

    WTF? The mod who gave me a strike says I “can leave an honest assessment” I just can’t “out” the company? What planet do these people live on?

  244. Mommy Grizzly says:

    The kind where an honest assessment means only saying nice things about a company with shitty customer service. ::goodvibes::

  245. Kirsty says:

    We got to -53 last winter (It was half a degree warmer than Siberia) and none of us got frozen asses. Could be because when it’s cold enough to kill polar bears I don’t go anywhere unless I would die if I didn’t. And if my car broke down, damn rights I would be knocking on doors to find warmth for my tots. I don’t know where in Winnipeg that she lives that she figured she couldn’t even find a 7-eleven to warm up in. Freakin’ psycho.

  246. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, no kidding. I looked her town up, it’s a fricken METRO area! I mean, with a population bigger than the 2 largest cities in my whole state kind of Metro. I just cannot imagine the kind of stupid that some people obviously embrace.

  247. Redhead says:

    Did y’all read that Above Rubies article? That is why she is like that, it is a cult.

  248. not me at all says:

    I have never even encountered this Mod before.
    Anyone else thinks it’s funny that one mod edited and a couple days later I get a strike from a totally different mod? What is up with that?

  249. Redhead says:

    Don’t they have a bunch of new mods? Mainly members who weren’t very active? (at least, I didn’t see them around much)

  250. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, so, that Above Rubies thing was pretty interesting. I told my husband about what you said about that wife with the 10 year old mentality husband and pimping out her kids. He said, “Who the fuck lives like that and thinks it’s OK?” It’s so sad for the kids.

  251. Flat Stainley says:

    Woah! She pimps out her kids!? What what what WHAT? (AS Cartman’s[I think] mom would say)

  252. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I paraphrased a story Redhead told. This woman was married to a guy that had a mental issue that left him pretty much like a 10 year old. She kept getting pregnant by him because that made her happy and she made her older kids work to support their family…

    It’s not technically a “pimp” but, yeah, I’d say it is.

  253. Flat Stainley says:

    Oh, that’s still sad though. How will those wee chillins have a chilehood?

  254. Mommy Grizzly says:

    No doubt.

  255. IHopeSo says:

    255, (lurking here) Where is this article? I have a friend who is into that. I’ve always wondered about it.

  256. Mommy Grizzly says:

    comment 125 and 126 on this thread.

  257. Mommy Grizzly says:

    The one I was just talking about was posted in a comment around those, it is not in the article.

  258. Kirsty says:

    It’s official- I suck at being cleverly vague! But on the brightside- I was right 🙂
    HooHa!

  259. Mommy Grizzly says:

    266 – she said she thought you knew but your hint went over her head. I’d have never guessed if she’d not told me

  260. Flat Stainley says:

    Yeah. Um, it’s not too hard to figure out if you concentrate, hehe. Now, Kirsty, WHO are YOU? 😀

  261. Kirsty says:

    lol actually I’m not so smart I just saw you comment on Redhead’s status once and was like, hmmmm- that’s odd. SO when you said you’re from BC I figured that must have been the connection. Me? I’m not one of the cool cats but have probably annoyed the piss outta you once or twice.

  262. Flat Stainley says:

    So, computer geeks out there, what could be causing my puter to not allow me to login? I can get in on my iphone, just not my PC. I’ve tried deleting my cookies, but that didn’t work. Any ideas of what it could be?

  263. Flat Stainley says:

    So then, does Redhead know who you are? Do you mean on FB? You think you annoyed the piss outta me? Now I neeeeed to know! 😉

  264. smartassmama says:

    i must be the most clueless person ever. i’ve never even had a guess as to Flat’s identity. Even though i think she knew me from day 1. I’m so uncool.

    and I’m in awe of those of you in arctic temps. I’ve never been north of STL. lol
    Roughin’ it. I’d probably die when it hit zero.

  265. Flat Stainley says:

    272. I’m in Redhead’s friend list on FB. I saw you there the other day. Go looky. 🙂

  266. Redhead says:

    I’m friends on FB with all the cool peoples. Because I am pretty darn cool myself. 😉 HEY- I don’t have Mommy Grizzly on my fb yet..

  267. Flat Stainley says:

    Neener! I do!

  268. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I am allergic to green people.

  269. JustPeachy says:

    I haz pretty yarn. Just saying 😉

  270. Mommy Grizzly says:

    linky linky?

  271. Just Peachy says:

    I haven’t gotten it all listed yet but I will hopefully tonite. I need to get rid of what won’t be knit in the next 6 months.

  272. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I really need pretty pretty for this winter.

  273. Redhead says:

    send me the link on CDN when you get it up. 😀 I’m SisterEncarnacion there.

  274. smartassmama says:

    274 – Ok, I think I figured it out with hints, but I would have never guessed it!

  275. smartassmama says:

    I’m gonna sound like I have my trolldar turned up to high, but this lmitchel2002 (or something like that) is totally bumping that stupid belly button thread. It’s bizarre. I’m starting to think it’s actually a kid.

  276. DocsNemesis says:

    I still have no idea who most people are. Though I did friend someone thats friends with Redhead…could that possibly be Flat? Otherwise, nfi who they heck I friended. Ya’ll can add me though, I’m Cari Wike 😀

    284-link? I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m slow people, slow.

  277. Flat Stainley says:

    Haha! 285-that was me. 😀 I recognized your kids’ names. 🙂

  278. Mommy Grizzly says:

    It’s got to be all that rain, Docs.

  279. DocsNemesis says:

    Yay, I guessed right!

    And yeah, its the rain. Not the rubber cement I sniffed in 4th grade. Er….

  280. DocsNemesis says:

    Wasn’t OrganicGem a bad person to deal with? Or am I thinking of someone else? One of her listings is tempting me….

  281. Redhead says:

    DON’T DO IT Docs!! She’s a nut!

  282. DocsNemesis says:

    rofl, ok.

  283. dundundun says:

    I need to work on becoming a cool kid.

  284. Redhead says:

    I do agree that her yarn is very tempting.. but her FB there is bad and she has been featured here before.

  285. Flat Stainley says:

    Okay, so is Organic Gem the same person who does mamacloth, or someone else?

  286. megs2486 says:

    I want to be part of the cool club! 🙂

  287. Redhead says:

    No, I don’t think they are the same.. Flat.

  288. Flat Stainley says:

    Oh, ok.

  289. DocsNemesis says:

    My poor fiance, he has a hospital bill to worry about, lost out on a job (it was between him and one other guy and the other guy got hired), and on top of that, he failed the quarter because he got sick on finals week. I need to cheer him up 😦 I can’t think of any cheap presents though, blarg.

  290. Mommy Grizzly says:

    nakie time is cheap…

    well, relatively.

  291. Flat Stainley says:

    298-When it rains, it pours. Try to boost his confidance, (sp?) sorry I can’t think of anything else to say, but “Yeah, that”–>299. :hugs:

  292. DocsNemesis says:

    Lol, I give him nakie time every night! And last night was all about him 🙂 I just feel like I need to find something special for him. I know he’s feeling a bit defeated at the moment.

  293. Flat Stainley says:

    How about one of these?
    http://www.regretsy.com/2010/08/23/what-2/
    I recommend the second one down.

  294. Mommy Grizzly says:

    OMG WTF?!???!

  295. Mommy Grizzly says:

    What about putting your talents to work … no, not THOSE talents…

    and make you guys matching thongs! and a bonus pair of titty tassels for each of you!

  296. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I was going to attach links but they always hang in limbo. 😉

  297. DocsNemesis says:

    Omg, those are awesome! I couldn’t get one though, he’d actually wear it. Probably everywhere. 😛

    *sigh* I love Regretsy!

    I have no clue who any of you are but I am not on DS anymore and rarely on CDN so that could be why. 🙂

    Docs, what is your fiance in to? (other than nakie time)

  299. Mommy Grizzly says:

    CJ – I am me everywhere I am.

  300. CJ says:

    That almost sounds mysterious.

  301. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, something.

    So, where in the world are you at, Carmen Sandy Eggo?

  302. CJ says:

    Sunny Shuswap lake now. We were in Lac la Bitch, AB for most of the summer. Glad to be home.

  303. Mommy Grizzly says:

    That’s cool. My sister lives on a lake so whenever I want to pretend I have a lake house, I go visit her. Then the kids try to drown one another and I realize why I’d never live on a lake. Maybe, one day, when the kids have been evicted… *dreamy dreamy*

  304. CJ says:

    We just moved back to the beach actually. Just renting a place….I can’t afford the $800,000 that comes along with owning a place here. It’s worth renting for now though, I love it. The back yard is fenced to separate it from the beach and we have locks for the gates so the little one can’t run off.

  305. Kirsty says:

    302- Here I am trying to put the baby to sleep and I open that regretsy link and scare the beejeebus outta her. That is the funniest crap ever. I’m laughing just thinking about it!

    311- Ugg what’s up in Lac La Biche? I got my dog from there and it was a land of hay and dirt. I have no doubt you’d be happy to leave there. I have a lake in my backyard too but it’s from my leaky garden hose. The only one who does any swimming are the mosquitos that breed in there.

  306. CJ says:

    LOL. Everyone who has been there gives me the same “poor you” look when I mention where we were. DH is working up there. He has been there for a year now. With school being out we decided to bring the kids up there so we could see him more frequently than every 5 weeks. Definitely not somewhere that we would want to live permanently.

    I bet if I wore this out on the town it would bring ALL the boys to my yard.

  308. DocsNemesis says:

    Wow….

    Ok anyway, fiance likes to cook. I hate it, so he always cooks dinner and usually lunch. I’ll be so lost once he starts working again. Beyond that…he likes cars, he likes gaming, oo, he keeps saying he wants to go fishing. I’m afraid I’d get the wrong pole though, lol.

    If I could, I’d surprise him with tickets to SC this winter. Its got to be so hard going a year in between seeing your family and baby girl’s grandparents miss her something fierce. They’re coming to visit around her bday but thats still 6 months from now 😦 Ugh, I can’t wait till we can move there! (Having to wait due to my youngest with my ex only being 2…I don’t feel right having him separated from either one of us for long periods yet, so we’re holding off for a couple of years.)

  309. DSDM2 says:

    What about some fishing gear, like line, lures, hooks, etc. I’m sure someone at a place like BassPro or sports store can help you pick something that will work for him. You wouldn’t have to spend much to get him a nice stocked bait/tackle box or something.

  310. Flat Stainley says:

    316-Someone needs to link her to MMP’s page. That model fails at using ‘the other’ feminine hygeine products.
    317-We are biding our time here too w/DD1, only 4 years left to go until we can move wherever we want to.

  311. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Really, you could go to WalMart and spent $30 and get a decent rod/reel set to get him started. Some even have little tackle boxes with them. I have a bunch of stuff from way expensive stores, and I prefer the UglySticks I got from Walmart and the PX because they just rock. Not to mention were significant less expensive than the ones I got from a sportsman store.

    As for lures, Walmart will have a good selection of lures appropriate for catching local fish. You cannot use the same types of lures everywhere because the bugs and fish are different everywhere.

    Uglystick by Shakespeare and Rhino make good rod/reel combos that are available at most WalMarts.

    Do not get him a FLY rod or FLY lures. That’s something very specific and not for general fishing. You will probably want just a straight fishing rod with a spinner reel. I personally like bait cast but most people do not because they can tangle easy and have tensions you have to set every time you change your lure. HTH!

  312. DocsNemesis says:

    I think he scared me last time we were looking at rods, he kept saying “this one is nice, this one sucks, blah blah.” Yeah, I sort of tuned him out. I’m a bad fiance. That and we can’t really afford a fishing license. If we could, I’d just go get our marriage license and surprise him with that. 🙂

    319-your kids are adorable! I can’t imagine waiting until he’s as old as your oldest though. I feel bad about moving, I do…we have 3 kids that’ll be separated from one of us for half the year and I’m going to miss them terribly, but I HATE it here and have no family, no friends, no support. I need to move. That and we can afford a nice big house out there, with acreage!

  313. Mommy Grizzly says:

    How much is a fishing license in WA State??

  314. Flat Stainley says:

    Thanks Docs! I grew them myself. ;D

  315. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL Flat!

  316. DSDM2 says:

    WA fishing licenses aren’t bad. https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/wdfw/licenses_fees.html here are the prices.

    You should call and find out what is required for fishing where. In some states, you have to have a stocked fish permit and a regular fishing permit to fish most rivers and streams.

  317. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Those are about the same as AK prices…

    You might call DFW and ask if you can get a special price if you are low income or on WIC. Alaska does a substance license for super low income.

  318. Flat Stainley says:

    You know what’s annoying about FB? I can’t seem to remove/change pics. Am I missing something? Those typos are annoying me! I do have replacements with the properly edited form.

  319. DocsNemesis says:

    They don’t offer reductions, except for the disabled. And yeah, I looked into it before. They have freshwater, saltwater, or both, and then you have to check into the area you want to fish and make sure you can and then make sure you aren’t getting any fish that aren’t allowed. Seems very annoying to me 😛

  320. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Welcome to fishing. Salt water is if you are going to fish in the sea. Most common type would be just a fresh water, resident license and keeping a regulation book to check areas and catches and their legality which can change by the hour/day.

  321. DSDM2 says:

    Well, a marriage license for you would only be $64. Make him quit playing his WoW for a few months and you have that 😉

  322. DocsNemesis says:

    Well, we live near Seattle though, so there’s the sound too…that’s why he couldn’t make up his mind what he wanted to do. Though now that I think about it, I don’t know if the sound fish are safe to eat…hmmm…

    And we both quit WoW. We have more important bills to pay at the moment. 😦 I miss my boomkin. lol

  323. CJ says:

    Docs, I think you could get him just about any fishing rod and he would be overjoyed at the sentiment. Just get a gift receipt to go with it in case he wants to trade it in for something a little different.

  324. CJ says:

    OldNavy.ca is open now. Soooooo exciting!
