I’m sorry that you had this shitty experience. I can tell you that you I gave up a job in a field I love — teaching, not baseball — for just this reason, and it’s best fucking decision I’ve ever made. Now I care about my job, but every issue or complication doesn’t impact my sense of self worth or joy because I don’t …
I’m sorry for the loss of your friend. That’s heartbreaking.
Fucking THANK YOU. Raw tomatoes are fucking disgusting, and no you can’t just take them off the damn sandwich because they’ve already leaked their fucking innards all over it.
I’m sorry, I wasn’t clear in my comment — the two cousins I mentioned were his own kids.
Ask them again when they’re in their 20s and see what answer you get. Maybe you’re right and they loved it and everything is fine. But my uncle got an earful from me and my sister and two cousins when he tried to reminisce about how much we all loved to be tickled when we were kids, and there are several other…
Yeah, it’s Super Fun to tickle kids who hate it and will remember you for the rest of your life as an asshole. Who doesn’t love that???
My sock drawer is a fucking work of art now, thanks to her book, and it makes me happy every time I open it.
Plus rubber gloves make the whole thing less gross. We didn’t have a dishwasher when I was a kid and I loathed putting my hands into the water and encountering whatever slime was in there, but now that I have gloves, dishwashing is kind of therapeutic.
My loan seems to work like yours: if I make additional payments, it takes them out as soon as they clear, and advances my due date so that if I don’t make the next payment, I won’t be late. However, my automatic debit is unaffected, so I’m essentially paying into the future once I get ahead. It’s pretty cool.
The off-brand places can be vulnerable because of the lack of corporate standards, but it really depends on the quality of the management/employees.
If you happen to live in an area where card skimming is that rampant,
I can eat with my right hand, if I have to, but I don’t if I can avoid it.
I was just going to say that it’s obvious this poor schmo is right-handed. I will fight someone for the end of the table seat to avoid getting an elbow in my arm.
He doesn’t care whether people are white, black, green, or polka dot, man!
That’s the rub, isn’t it? Labor needs to stand together, pre- and post-arb, in order to have an impact.
First, I think we have to establish that Tom Ricketts could identify whether something is racist or not. He seems like the type of guy who thinks calling black people “articulate” and “clean” is a complement.
This is what I do and it’s a great idea. My hobby is teaching. I used to do it professionally, but quit because I got burned out, so now I pick up a class or two when I want to (I teach LSAT test prep, now) and make a couple extra bucks and then stop before it’s too muvh of a grind.
I lift first because I hate lifting and if I do cardio first I’m more likely to skip lifting. But if I lift first then I get the sweet relaxing joy of cardio as a reward.
It’s a negotiation strategy, not a litigation strategy. It’s entirely possible that your employer might be willing to take the risk of you suing and refuse to increase your severance as a result of the strategy, because they see the risk as low. It’s also entirely possible that they think an explicit waiver in hand it…
You don’t threaten to sue. You offer to waive potential claims in exchange for a financial payment. The waiver of claims is going to be in the document you get anyway, if your employer has any clue what they are doing, so all you’re doing is pointing out that additional areas of risk for them can be eliminated for…
