Question for the ladies

I'd like to get an idea on how other women feel about being called ma'am and how often does this occur?

I'm 49 and a little sensitive about getting up there, so when people call me ma'am it really bothers the heck out of me.

I know it's a term used to be respectful, but is it just used towards older women?

Oversensitive these days....

Rock Creek Tavern

Has anybody been there yet? I have been dying to try it, but just haven't gotten there yet. Wondering if it's any good and what the menu is like. They don't seem to have a website, only a Facebook page. It also seems that they took the Facebook page over from the old Skoogy's, as it still has Skoogy's menu posted.

Problem Contractor

Hey folks, any suggestions for dealing with a contractor who has not completed work? Unfortunately he was paid in full and continues to fail to show up when he has committed (weeks/months of excuses). Permit is still unconfirmed but major work is done.

Andover Property Tax Assessor lowers hers while increase others


This must be a new low on NJ's corrupt municipal/township officials - Not only do they relentlessly work around the 2% Property Tax cap, but also poach more (pay less in taxes) like their 6digit salaries are not enough, with secure jobs [they can't be fired or voted out by the community] and get free benefits [health/dental/etc.] on the taxpayers bill.

I'm very happy a fellow citizen took the long length to take a stand against those corrupt officials. Let's stand behind Jesse Wolosky and look for other Property Tax shenanigans & hooligans in our own backyard.
