My random-poll specialty strikes again. The original poll title is a bit narrow for what it ended up turning into; overlook that. For question 1, option one says "Always" but can also be "Often." For question 3, those of you still there can project to what you expect to do. And question 7 can be quite broad; I was thinking along the lines of having a question about a product or, I don't know, wanting to know about about travel policies with a particular company.

I wasn't aware there was a day-old bread section of stores. I'll have to look next time.

"Day old" was kind of a catch-all term for bread products at their expiration date (although some places do sell fresh-baked stuff and those are usually discounted the next day), but yeah, depending where you go there's usually some small area with sale stickers.

I buy discounted bread that's only got a day left on its "use by" date, but stores here (that I'm aware of) don't sell bread that's actually past its date.

I also hate the phone and would much rather correspond fully by email.

Interesting -- I never actually checked the dates; maybe the stuff I'm thinking of is almost-old bread? I'm lumping it all together because it doesn't taste quite as soft as really fresh stuff, and some people won't eat it unless it is.

We have a soda gun in our house, so we buy syrup.

That is RAD and I am jealous.

I blame my husband 100% :)

I don't think my store has any day-old bread section. If it does, I've never seen it. Which is sad, because I'd totally buy it!
20th-Oct-2010 06:36 pm (UTC)
I don't buy soda. It's just too sickeningly sweet.
20th-Oct-2010 06:43 pm (UTC)
Also, the ends of sliced bread are the best part! What i wouldn't do to buy a loaf of bread that has more than two end pieces! </3

"Live on campus" isn't something we do in my country, so that didn't really apply to me, but I put 0.

Really? Oh, I am forever fascinated by the discrepancies in upper education in other countries, because I am completely clueless. At mine you *have* to live on campus all four years (they didn't when I attended, but they were in the process of building a new residential building to accommodate the change), and most places I looked at required it for at least the first year or two.

I'm in Finland. We don't even HAVE apartments on campus, no dorms, nothing like that. Students live in... well, whatever people live in. Mostly rental buildings around town. There is affordable rental housing available for students, often near a campus, but never ON it, and it's provided by housing associations, not the schools themselves.

Only so-called "folk high schools" offer on-campus housing in a dormitory environment, it's not required, and that's secondary education. Outside of those schools, living in dorms just... isn't done. The closest you could get is student rental housing in "cell apartments", where each student has their own room but kitchen and other common areas are shared.

Phone vs. email really depends for me on what the information is. If it's something super simple and I only need a quick answer, email is fine, but if I'm likely to have questions or want more information or it's more complicated of a question, I'd prefer to talk by phone (or in person).

I'm still in school, and this is the second year I will be living on campus (in a super nice on-campus apartment!) but I don't plan to after this year, but we'll see.
20th-Oct-2010 08:22 pm (UTC)
On-campus apartment, nice. We couldn't get into those until junior year, and in my opinion their junior apartments were worse than the newer, prettier sophomore dorms. Only seniors got to live in the really good apartments.
20th-Oct-2010 08:33 pm (UTC)
The on-campus apartments are for sophomores, but anyone could live in them. They're really nice, and there's a pool, sand volleyball courts, mini-gym that only people living here can access. And people come and clean the kitchen and bathroom. High class on campus apartments. And I go to a state school.

Ack, I just deleted my last comment instead of editing and now I don't remember what I said or what I was going to say. But I'm pretty sure the sentiment was "your school is fantastic."

to the bread crust question:
it all depends on the bread. if its prepackaged sandwish bread, then no. but bakery type bread in different varieties, then yes i will.

my first permanent job after college started out as part-time but became full-time after a month when i had the opportunity to replace someone who was leaving. that worked out nicely!
