A cupcake too far A backlash has quashed a Google Maps test feature that showed how many calories people could burn on a trip if they walked instead of drove, using pink cartoon mini-cupcakes to help illustrate the calorie savings. Although many said it could help promote a healthier lifestyle, others were outraged, according to TechCrunch. Some claimed the feature could be a trigger for the estimated 30 million Americans with eating disorders, pointing out that compulsive calorie counting is a warning sign of some disorders such as anorexia. Others said the feature, which apparently could not be turned off, made them feel unfairly judged or shamed.

- Dear Abby: Mom wants to attach strings to treasured hand-me-downs
By Jeanne Phillips - Saturday Jul 15, 2017
Mom wants to attach strings to treasured hand-me-downsBecause the outfits were expensive, as our children outgrew them, we passed them on to my sister-in-law.When my youngest daughter was born, I asked her about the dresses, and she informed me they were not her style so she had given them away.Once a gift is given, it becomes the property of the recipient to keep or dispose of.If someone did something “nice” for you, but it turned out to cause such a hassle that you didn’t appreciate the gesture, how do you politely tell the person not to do it again, or that you wish they hadn’t?Someone gives you a box of chocolates or cupcakes when you are trying to lose weight.Or, the babysitter folds all the clothes that were sitting in the laundry basket, but puts everything away in the wrong drawers.[...] you didn’t ask her to fold the laundry in the first place.Thank the person for the thoughtful gesture and explain that you are watching your diet, cannot have candy and won’t be able to for the foreseeable future.
