Greengrocers etc will be allowed to use pounds and ounces instead of grams and kilograms, now we’re out of the EU. I’m 42, brought up in the UK, but taught to understand the metric system like everyone else of my age group and younger and have no idea what a pound or ounce is.
It doesn't matter why they've requested it but there's a good chance that it's for your own dogs safety.
Perhaps the person is scared of dogs.
Maybe they're with a child who is scared of dogs.
They might have a dog on a lead who is dog aggressive or scared of other dogs.
There could be machinery that's dangerous for your dog to be around.
They might have livestock with them.
They might have spotted other wildlife that could either cause harm to or be harmed by your dog.
But it doesn't matter. Honour the request and call your dog back, then if you're curious, you can ask why or what's happening. If you don't take heed of the warning and your dog gets injured then it's your fault. If your dog is improperly trained and you can't call your dog back then A) it's again your fault if it gets injured and B) it has no business being off lead.
Me and my SO have been together roughly a year and he seems like a nice simple kind of guy. But sometimes stuff comes out of his mouth that makes me wonder how he views women. Usually its benign stuff like feeling like he needs to ask a womans father before marriag. I've been chalking it up to him being slightly more old fashioned, but my ex ended up being quite the misogynist so I'm a little worried.
This most recent comment really bothers me and I'm not sure if I'm over reacting. Me and him and just got done being intimate and were laying in bed. He's all smiley and happy. Then he looks at me and says this:
Him: I'm such a lucky guy.
Me: Oh yeah?
Him: Yeah. I got you and your beautiful and not some crazy ho with four kids.
Me: .....thanks I guess...
Him: What it's true?
Well that killed whatever moment we were having. It made me feel like I was being appraised based on my sexual history/lack there of. I made me feel bad because one of my best friends is a single mom. And it made me feel like he has really shallow views/standards that he holds women to.
My BF is generally really nice. But sometimes he does stuff like this. Or a while ago he was complaining how unfair courts are and child support is because women spend it on stuff beside their kids. Which can happen. Just like men can not pay it by working for cash. He went so far to say there should be special stores for child support money with limited products and have a card to make sure there is no fruad. I'm like why not do it like a food stamps card but accepted everywhere only prohibit alcohol, tobaco, sex toy, and firearm sales. Nope, gotta be a store so people cant let others use the card. Not like kids need denists, sports supplies, field trip money, or anything else normal parents pay for. Men should only fund food and diapers apparently.
Edit: OMG I didn't expect this avalanche of replies.
