It's time for one of Merle Wayne Sneed's sweeping, uninformed generalizations. Who needs information when he is gifted with great intuition? Some people (but maybe not all), who claim to suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) are coo-coo for Coco Puffs and not sensitive at all. There I said it. We have a customer at the store who claims to suffer from MCS. I think she suffers from Obnoxious Personality Disorder (OPD). In her case the MCS is kind of selective. Sometimes she will call the store from her car in the parking lot and ask that a list of items be brought out to her. We take her credit card in and bring her purchases out. Other times she comes to the door and we conduct business at the threshold. She claims that the vast array of chemicals in the store will do her in. One can only hope. Yesterday to my surprise, she barged right into the store and demanded that I get her a light bulb, asap. The problem was that she didn't really know what she wanted. She asked for a specific bulb, but it was not suitable for the lamp she was trying to get it for. I was having a hard time explaining this to her and she finally snapped and yelled at me. Her words were more or less, "I can't be in here because of all the chemicals. Do you have what I need or not?" I was pleased to tell her that we didn't have anything she needed. So, she left. I asked the boss if we can ban her from the store, but the almighty dollar trumps civility again. What do you suppose is up with the nutjob in California who had the eight babies? She has 14 kids and no job, lives with parents and is unmarried. Single mother of 14. Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

MCS? I had never heard of it. Sounds coo-coo to me, too!

Reminds me of the movie Safe. It's a good one.

MCS? Is this new?

I believe that lady with the kids, just wants attention and her 15 minutes of fame ; (
But maybe not.....

At the paper we had someone like the lady you mention, a real pain in the ass. When I took over the district, I asked if we could simply cut them off, and let them purchase the paper around the block at the store.

Oh no, it was a paying customer ; (

And so it goes.....

my maternal grannie had 17 kids. (one set of twins) but the rest she popped out one at a time over 22 years. A somewhat grumpy woman.

Have you heard of the Duggar family? http://www.duggarfamily.com/

I'm not in favor of leaving human fertility in the hands of God, but these people are at least responsible and do it naturally. I think the people who have that mindset would accept God's limits, which means infertility=no more biological kids for you. I usually try to refrain from passing judgement on someone's situation until all the facts are in, but this woman who had 8 kids at once makes it really hard. Did you hear she had all of them in 5 minutes? It takes some people longer than that to poop!
