I think the women defending the status quo on this post just because some working women don’t get any benefits are ridiculous:
So, I know there’s a lot that WASN’T included in the omnibus (the giant spending bill that’s being voted on today/tomorrow) (such as a DACA fix!) and some bad things that WERE (like the aforementioned CLOUD item), but can I just take a second to talk about some good things that happened with it?
So Tuesday is going to be the fourth time I’ve taken a bar exam. Which is kind of embarrassing.
Oh my god, you guys, I am so nervous. I have a THREE-HOUR job interview tomorrow. It’s with three different people, an hour each. I already had a first screening interview with HR. So, I’m pretty sure they’re really interested in me if they’ve booked me for a solid three hours. HR said they want to decide hopefully by…
Good news! We won a skirmish!
My boss, for his first ever written evaluation of me (in five years!), made a PROS AND CONS LIST of me. Who the FUCK does that?
I am so, so sick over the tax cuts bullshit and I don’t even know what to do except curl up in my office and cry. I work with non-profits for older adults, as I’ve said before, and this bill is going to hurt older adults so much if the PAYGO kicks in with the deficit increase (and everyone else too!!, but this is the…
Is there anyone lurking who needs commenting privs? I can’t grant author privs since I’m not a mod, but if you’re in the grays for GT comments, please comment here and unless you’re a total troll, I’ll ungray. I don’t always remember to click on read pending for comments, so I miss gray people a lot, and I’m sure I’m…
I would like to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude that I live in a big American city where IUDs are not considered murder by the vast majority of physicians and where hormones for gender transitions will be prescribed, and my condolences to those of you who live in towns where that is not the case.
Pleasantly telling people (generally self-identified men on Lifehacker) you’re going to leave the online conversation... and getting the Kinja notifications from their comments after you say that. They get so angry! How dare you have better things to do! It’s so satisfying to watch them try to provoke you into…
Trying to win some fucking minds over on FB after I’ve seen one too many of my (white) in-laws post bullshit yesterday and today who are NOT vets:
I am so fucking amused right now. These two men seem to have taken my Lifehacker account of manspreading on airplanes personally. I am a “passive-aggressive shitheel,” apparently, for not asking two men with headphones on to move their legs out of MY middle seat space. (Thanks, cheap-ass work!) Instead, I asserted…
So I have the task of explaining the Senate ACA repeal bill to my national association, and I’m basically sitting on my hands trying not to type “THIS SHIT IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME SHIT AS THE OTHER SHIT WE WERE GIVEN”
I need a happy things post! Everything feels so bleak and it’s raining here in DC and ew. So, share happy pictures and happy stories and such.
This doesn’t even count pregnant people and many of the other pretty bogus “pre-existing conditions” we saw in the pre-ACA years, since they wouldn’t be in the CMS Chronic Conditions Data Warehouse. Because they’re not really health “conditions.”
Suck it, Chaffetz. Do we think he saw the writing on the wall or what?
I meant to update you all on the super low energy situation.
Laugh instead of crying, folks.
