    2. I Have a Question...

      Sometimes things happen that make us wonder how or why but leave us too embarrassed to seek advice; don't be afraid, ask your questions here. This forum is for asking questions that you may not be able to ask anyone in "real life".

      Rants will be moved to Let It All Out forum and evocative threads that could potentially turn into flames will be moved to the Soap Box forum.
