What's a nice to way to demand, "Please fix my hair so I don't look like I work at Hot Topic."

I just spent way too much money at the salon for highlights, and after a few days I realized that I am not happy with the outcome. Is there any standard recourse or should I just fix this myself? [more inside]

My maid-of-honor invited her parents without my permission

Asking for desjardins: My maid-of-honor (MOH) invited her parents to the ceremony, which is fine since they can watch her young son, but she also asked if they could stay for the dinner, and share her hotel room (which I'm paying for). I reluctantly said OK, but I'm wondering if I should ask for recompense from the parents? [more inside]

How to balance my budget and my social life?

I will be starting graduate school in the fall (thanks for the great advice on my previous question!), and going from a quite comfortable salary to a typical grad student's pay.

My car is an attention whore.

This is going to sound ridiculous, I think. I got a Honda Fit Sport in August and since then -- well, especially these last few months, with gas more expensive than ever (!) -- it's been grabbing me a lot of attention. If it's relevant for local etiquette reasons, I'm in the US, in Fairfield County, Connecticut. And the car is black, since "stealth" wasn't available as an option. [more inside]

Where does the lady sit if the wall has a nice view?

Seating at a restaurant. I understand that in one-on-one situations, etiquette suggests that lady is offered the seat with the view into the room, and the gentleman takes the seat facing the wall. This and other sites seem to agree. But what if the "wall" is floor-to-ceiling glass with nice views of the outside? [more inside]

Tell me about "Tell me about" ... if you'd be so very kind.

Every time I hear a journalist say "Tell me about ..." when interviewing someone on television, I get really annoyed. It seems so incredibly presumptuous, pompous and impolite to demand an answer of a guest like that. Yet it happens all over the world. Is this standard journalistic practice? What's the reasoning behind it? Anyone else feel the same way or am I being a relic? [more inside]

i see your schwartz is as big as mine

Certain people in our office *have* to talk to me if we're in the bathroom at the same time. No, they can't come into my office before or after, they just have to talk to me while we're in the freaking bathroom. What's a good way to politely but firmly tell them "hey, let's talk shop outside of the bathroom, when I'm not holding my private bits!" I mean, I'm not the kind of guy that thinks it's gross or anything like that. But I think it's kind'a rude and a real imposition.
