comment Should I monetarily reward the person who found my phone?
What? I think you may have misinterpreted the situation. The person on the bus didn't take the phone and then hang around seeing if it would ring; they were sitting on the bus when an unattended phone began to ring, so they answered it in case it was the owner trying to find their lost phone. It was. The owner then gave them permission to take the phone off the bus.

comment What is the right way to refer to someone with dark brown skin who is not African American?
@Flater - I'll refer you to my previous comment: I agree logically with your points, but my feelings aren't controlled by logic.

comment What is the right way to refer to someone with dark brown skin who is not African American?
@Flater - Look, I don't disagree with anything you or FiatLux have said, but the society I've grown up in (or my interpretation of it anyway) is that skin colour should be ignored. I agree logically with your points, but my feelings aren't controlled by logic.

comment How do I politely turn down a costume party invitation because I am too embarrassed to wear a costume?
"if I managed to get an exception to the costume rule, then a good chunk of the planning and appearance of the event would end up being defined by my personal problems" - Can you clarify if there's a specific theme or not? There's a big difference between "everyone will be wearing random costumes" and "everyone will be wearing identical {wookie/smurf/t-rex} costumes". Though this difference probably only matters for answers doing what @Juan thinks you don't want...

comment Is adding “let me know if anything is unclear” to an e-mail really necessary or is it redundant?
@MusTheDataGuy - Ah, right. You prefer all communication to be completely efficient. So you never put "Dear Joe Bloggs" at the top of an email, write "Please could you" at the start of any request, thank anyone for what they've done or finish with "Kind regards" or similar? You don't consider how the way you phrase things can affect how someone feels?

@MusTheDataGuy - That doesn't contradict that "adding the line takes the stress off asking for help". Which is the whole point of my answer.
