I think they tried to steal from me…

I’m not against donating in any way, but the fact that they said something cost $5 and said it was ‘against policy’ to give me change…WELL – THAT JUST RUBBED ME THE WRONG WAY. Am I off base? Let me know! As usual, let me know what you think. Not going to...

3 ways Squishy-Men can throw us all out of balance.

I’d like to discuss how a man ‘Reasonably’ SHOULD and SHOULD NOT act. Remember, this is the ReasonableDose Blog….there is not really a right and wrong here, necessarily. We’ll just attempt to look over our lives, the facts we know to be true based on the experiences we’ve had, and our own truths. Then we come out on the other side with a judgement. Yes a JUDGEMENT! ‘I don’t know that it is bad to judge, that seems to be human nature. Condemnation is not for human consumption, it must be left to higher powers.’ Justin McKnight – ReasonableDose As you read...
