      As a woman, it really annoys me when other women don’t take responsibility for themselves. When I first decided to try out online dating, I signed up for a site that turned out to be, like Tinder, a hook-up site. 99% of the people on there were just looking to get laid. The first week I was on that site, I got 4 or 5 messages like the ones this woman received. I didn’t wait around until I got dozens more. I quickly determined the site wasn’t for me and deleted my profile. If you choose to stay on a site like that once you know what it’s like then you only have yourself to blame when you continue to get the same results.

      I grew up with Wawa but I’ve traveled a fair bit and been to Sheetz several times. I think they both have their pros and cons. Love the snack foods, i.e. mozzarella sticks, at Sheetz and that you can build your own burrito, but I’m not crazy about the quality of their lunch meat. The turkey was super processed and slimy. I couldn’t even eat it. I’m also super-addicted to the Iced Caramel Lattes that Wawa’s been offering for the last year or so. Cheaper than Starbucks and just as tasty.

      A lot of these look like they resulted from a lack of patience. The frosting melted because you didn’t let the cake cool. The sugar burned because you had the temperature too high. But there is no way in hell they put any effort at all into those Rice Krispies treats. I made treats in the colors of the Italian flag for a birthday party once and that stuff is SUPER workable. You can pretty much mold it into anything you want.

      Am I the only one that understands this list is probably about Italian-American families and that the traditions and culture differ from those actually found in Italy? I’m from an Italian family from Philly. My great-grandparents came over from Abruzzi in the early 1900s and my grandmother and her sisters were first generation Americans. We don’t follow ALL of these things, but they aren’t unheard of. I’ve never met an Italian-American woman who wasn’t damn proud of her meatballs. We always ate braciola with pasta (or macaroni, as it was always called) because it wasn’t cheap and we couldn’t afford large amounts of it. Everyone would get just a small piece with their pasta on Sundays. And we did the Feast of the 7 Fishes every year when I was a kid.

      I find it difficult to believe people are being asked these questions all that often. Some of them are actually valid questions “How do you pronounce your last name?” which is appropriate unless you would prefer they mangle it. And the one about Greek Easter. I have a friend from high school who is Greek and I genuinely didn’t know Greeks celebrated Easter at a different time. I asked her about it out of a desire to understand her culture better and she very nicely explained it to me. But most of the rest are really stupid. How many people are really asking you what The Mati is? I had never heard of it until I read this article. I looked it up and it’s just the Greek version of what we Italians call the molicchio or “the maloiks” if you go by the way my Italian grandmother pronounced it. I can honestly say that, although I grew up hearing that term often, no one has EVER asked me about it. I imagine most people who aren’t of that ethnicity have never even heard of it.
