Glad You Asked: Weekend Edition



Dear GYA, Last night, I purposed to my girlfriend and we got into a huge fight because I didn't go to Jared. Seriously, what difference does it make what jewelry store I shopped at?! I swear to God, if Jared is a real person I'm gonna punch him right in the jewels. Anything happening this weekend after I whup Jared's ass? - Mick Pumper, Logan ---

Mick, Unfortunately, there is no actual person named "Jared" behind Jared The Galleria of Jewelry. In fact, the company is a subsidiary of Sterling Jewelers and its CEO's name is Mark Light. If anything, that's the guy you want to punch. Here's some stuff to do when you're done with your rampage:
