'AITA for choosing our family dog over a friend hard on his luck?': Choosing beggar friend asks for a place to stay, demands family get rid of their dog first

Tattoos are so personal to the individual getting their skin adorned. Everyone knows that tattoos last forever, but it's a hard concept to fathom until you actually get the tattoo.

'I was gone for about 30 minutes': Dad gets put in his place for ditching dinner party to take son to McDonald's

Teaching your kids that they're not always going to have everything handed to them when (and how) they want it is an important lesson to share. It helps prepare them for the reality that things aren't always going to be exactly to their liking; different people do things differently and have different ideas about what is "good" and how things should be done, so learning to work with that as early as possible will only make their life easier and ensure that they don't grow up to be a micromanagi…
