    Does “Grow a pair” seem to fix a lot of peoples problems?

    • Jon says:

      I was using the expression sardonically, but that doesn’t subtract from the fact that the reader is in dire need of standing up for himself in the face of what has obviously become a borderline intolerable nuisance. He needs to be an adult about this, which is as easy as asking (or, better yet, telling) the neighbor to keep his dog’s shit in his own yard. The act of conjuring up the strength to deal with personal difficulty/discomfort is, in my mind, a significant part of being a man (“growing a pair”), which is precisely what must be done in this particular situation.

        I 100% agree. The guy needs to man up and power through this trivial bullshit! He admitted that he’s sort of a pussy. Well, to solve the problem he simply needs to STOP BEING ONE, and (as you said) that’s as easy as asking the neighbor to keep off his damn lawn. Case closed.

    I really hope that guy marries the unemployed vegan herbalist/wino/pothead/single mom. I’d like to see you do a piece on their relationship.

    Grow a pair is correct.
    Miracle whip? I dumped a girl cause she ate more than I did, wouldn’t even think twice about disgusting food fetishes.
    Herbalist, the guy obviously sees plenty of obstacles in the relationship and yet still thinks she’s the one, I agree he needs to go for it. Although the “propose right away”gave a hint of that Jon-type humor.

    Good deal Jon, keep them coming.
