When you’re working you have to present yourself in a professional way. We all know this…well…we all SHOULD know this.
Even if you have a job that allows you dress casually, you still need to be professional in a casual way. If you don’t your employer has the right to let you know you’re not living up to the company’s standards. Understandable and expected.
One girl who works at JC Penny’s has been sent home for work because the shorts she was wearing were too revealing!
Now if that is true, you go change. You made the mistake.
Here’s the catch…
She bought the shorts from the career section…at JC Penny’s!!!!!!
WAIT JUST A MINUTEEEEEEEE
Are you kidding me?
I personally don’t think the shorts are that revealing…the issue I have it that the girl bought them IN THE CAREER SECTION OF THE STORE SHE WORKS AT!!
She no longer works at JC Penny…understandable.
What do you think? Are these shorts too revealing? Should the girl be punished, she did, after all, buy the shorts from the store she works at?!

I think we should just be friends.
N to the O. I do not want to be your friend after we break up. In fact, if you suggest that, I may punch you in the face.
If we are breaking up, do not add insult to injury.
WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE FRIENDS AFTER THIS AWFUL BREAK UP AND YOU SUGGESTING SO IS INSULTING.
So I know it is possible to be friends with some ex’s…I have remained friendly with some…not so friendly with others. It really depends.
I would say most of the time, it’s better to just cut all ties and not even try to be friends…but there are certain people that you just don’t want to completely let go of, which is okay too.
How do you know which path to take when the relationship ends?!
Researchers studied a group of 18-30 year old couples for a year…they interviewed them about their happiness and satisfaction in their relationship…they also studied the couples that broke up throughout the year and analyzed how much the broken up couples communicated.
“According to the study, published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, couples who had high levels of commitment, high satisfaction, and fewer available alternatives were most likely to remain friends with their ex.”
The research has also showed that if you were friends with the person before you were involved romantically then you are more likely to remain friends after the break up.
What do you think? Is it possible to/should you remain friends with your ex? Email me at Tory@1017thebull.com or tweet me @ToryTheBull!
Ladies, there is a game we play in the dating world…whether we know we are playing the game or not, it’s there and we’re in it.
I will tell you I’m terrible at “the game”…I’m pretty clueless when it comes to “the game”…I’m just hoping my Prince Charming stumbles upon me in my living room…although I’m probably going to come at Prince Charming with mace and a baseball bat if he actually just shows up in my living room.
Anyway, back to “the game”…we play it…and we do things that we think are okay and will land us the guy.
There are some things we need to stop doing because it’s freaking guys out.
Not having friends- Men are attracted to women who have an active social life. Having friends indicates that you have people in your life who want to spend time with you. That is alluring to a prospective partner. It also shows that friends are important to you and that the man isn't the center of your world. So therefore, he has to put more effort in to get to spend time with you. It also gives you so much more to talk about when you do spend time together as a couple. If women ditch their friends to spend all their time with a man, that can be a real turn off.
Texting too much-Men typically have a different perspective on texts. They use them for logistics and aren't as big on texting as women. If you're constantly texting a man, it conveys a sense of neediness and that you have a lot of time on your hands. To start with especially, keep texts relatively short, fun and flirty and avoid sending too many
Baby talk-It's not cute or endearing. It comes across as needy and immature so refrain from it
Being possessive-Allow a man to also be free to keep doing all the things he loves. As soon as a man feels like he's being restricted from other things in his life that he enjoys, it will put pressure on the relationship and it probably won't be long before he starts to lose interest and want out. A couple thrive most when they allow one another to have a life outside of the relationship.
Talk badly of other women-This also conveys insecurity. If you're bringing down something about other women, it can give men the impression that you're hard work and lack confidence in yourself. It's fine to have opinions, but when it's out rightly criticizing or bitching about another woman for no constructive reason, that's not an attractive quality to have.
Let’s not be too hard on ourselves ladies…I’m willing to bet that we don’t even know we do some of these things…and definitely don’t plan to do them on purpose!
I don’t like anyone starts a relationship thinking, “I’m going to be really possessive and jealous, that will make him love me!”
If I ever realize I forgot to put deodorant on…I panic. Paniccccc.
I then shut down and cannot focus on anything!
When this happens, I get super paranoid…OMG DO I STINK? I DEFINITLY STINK! PEOPLE ARE GOING TO THINK I DON’T SHOWER! I SWEAR I SHOWERED! OMG ITS HOT IN HERE, I’M SWEATING. IS IT EXCEPTIONALLY HOT IN HERE? WHY AM I SWEATING!
If I have the time and ability to run home and grab deodorant or to a store to buy some I absolutely will!
I also now carry extra deodorant in my purse, just in case!
Of course the days I forget deodorant are the hottest days and I end up sweating more than average. Of course.
So what can you do if you forgot to put deodorant on?
Get ready to have your mind blown!
Now I don’t really like hand sanitizer but in this case I’ll jump on board!
According to Life Hacker, “Rub a dollop of sanitizer into each armpit. At first, you'll smell strongly of rubbing alcohol, but that odor (and your BO) will go away in a minute or so. You should be good to go until you get home for the day”
OH MY GOD!
My life just got so much easier!
Over the weekend I was enjoying my morning coffee and scrolling through facebook…I came across a glorious article titled, “13 Things You’ll Find In Every Iowa Home”
Well well well, how perfect considering we are in the great state of Iowa!
Even though I’m an implant to the state, I have most of these items in the house!
How many do you have?!
Tons and tons of corn holders
A college football t-shirt…either Iowa or Iowa State…Penn State in my case!
A medicine cabinet packed with bug spray, sunscreen, and everything else you could ever possibly need
An impressive collection of yard games
Pop. No soda to be found here.
An assortment of winter gear
An arsenal of winter tools
One of those fleece blankets with the knotted ends
A t-shirt quilt, or quilt of some kind
A Scentsy and a collection of wax blocks for every season and occasion
A scrapbook full of old photos and clippings from the local newspaper
A welcome mat
How many of these do you have in your house?!
You put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up, put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up!
Who doesn’t love a little LIME?!
Well other than using it with your tequila there are many things limes can do around the house…tequila will still be the best match for your limes though, trust me.
Defunk your microwave
Crusty, musty microwaves are no match for this simple five minute hack. Fill a microwave safe bowl with a half cup of water, two tablespoons of baking soda and half of a lime, then cook on high for about four minutes. Wipe off the muck loosened by the steam, and savor the citrus fresh scent.
Garlic, onions and other ingredients we love in our food can leave hands stinky after cutting. To banish the unsavory odor, scrub your hands with lime juice post-handling.
Send ants marching
Citrus rind oils contain an extract (d-limonene) that's toxic to ants — even dreaded fire ants. Instead of composting your lime peels, use them to create an ant pesticide that will be sure to eradicate ant mounds. If you're more of a live and let live type, you can also spray the concoction in doorways and windowsills to keep the little buggers from invading your home.
Grab some tequila and limes…have a few shots and DEFUNK your microwave!
