    I Know, I Know

    How whiney does this appear? I know that it is manners and when addressing people on the phone I do it myself as it is expected, but it is a personal thing to me.  I just do not like being addressed as Ms or Miss H*** and indeed I still get referred to as Mrs even though...

    When you finally get a reply to the "I miss you" text you shouldn't have sent and it only confirms that you're still every obscenity known to man in their eyes. Awesome.
