    What is important to remember about ISTPs is that they literally don't know what/how they feel. Our feelings are like a lost planet. Many ISTP relationships are really based on practical considerations or choosing whoever first told the ISTP that they liked him or her. That's how out of touch with feeling ISTPs are. They usually don't get in touch with their feelings til age 50 or so.

    Not pretty , I know.

Around here, I already know what company to go with (Verizon) because of the advice of friends/neighbors, if I should change from my prepaid cell (Tracfone).

    I'll probably end up getting verizon, seems that's what everyone has here too. My brother and his family, my stepdad, everyone. Thing is, I know I'll pay it every month but 60 dollars is a lot more than I was paying to tag along on at&t (10 a month, lol). At that rate I'd actually have to work normal hours! >:|

    My problem is that I need to get my daughter's bathtub drain unstopped by Friday. I tried some liquid plumber- type stuff and it didn't work. I know of a good plumbing co. to call for help, but the last time the guy came by he tried to hit on me, so I don't want to call them again. It would be really nice if you could tell me a way to unstop the drain by myself.

    Hmm the last time my bathtub got stopped up I put some hot water in the tub (like, very hot) from another source (if I used the tub it would have filled up) and I let it sit there for a few minutes. Then I used the plunger on the drain. It wasn't really that clogged up though, so it worked.

    If that doesn't work, get some Draino or something.

    Ha, I googled the issue and here is the site that I used that told me how to unclog it myself the time it happened to me! Unclogging a Drain | DoItYourself.com

    To add to what BlackCat wrote, I'm wondering how long you let the "liquid plumber-type stuff" work. The bottle I currently have says to: let it work for 15 minutes (or in cases of standing water, until the drain is clear, but I've never been in a "standing water" situation, and hope you aren't!), then flush with hot water, and repeat if it doesn't work.

    In my experience, 15 minutes just isn't long enough, maybe they WANT you to have to use up the whole bottle. I use 1/2 bottle like it says, but I let it work for 3 hours. Nothing bad has ever happened to my pipes, knock on wood, and I've even forgotten and let the stuff sit overnight once.

    Good luck!

    Heinel - The best way I can think of is still to say it as bluntly as possible. Try to think of what you'd say to a psychiatrist or your best friend who you tell secrets to, then instead of telling them, you tell him instead.
    Good advice.

    There's another way for ISTP's to get in touch with their emotions. It takes being hit in the face with unwavering and expansive emotional roadblocks coupled with three years of intensive therapy.

    Worked for me.

    I let it sit for about 30 minutes. I'm not sure if I remembered the "rinse with hot water afterwards" part, though.

    I like your avatar, btw.

    Should I show up in costume to school tommorow?

    I missed the "dress up as a holiday character" day because I was sickly.
