Just yesterday, Google notified me, via email, that IFTTT will no longer (as of 31 March 2019) have access to some data in my Google Account since they have not yet complied with new privacy rules Google announced last October. I assume I got this since I do grant IFTTT access to my Google info for various IFTTT…
Uhhhhh setting aside the use of the word “idiot” here which is super-ablist :( :( I think a lot of the stuff in the first and second episode is meant to emphasize that Annie is bad at taking care of herself because she devalues herself, and not having great birth control practices is sort of part of that- but that…
They’ll know to get ready and meet you at their designated pick-up spot.
I’m on that boat right now. Except I work 30 hour weeks, which ends up being a lot like a full-time job without any benefits. I have no breaks or lunch, so essentially I work only 5 hours less than a full-time employee, and at busy times, I do have to work more than my allotted 30. I don’t get overtime and things…
“And everyone is ready to sell you a sock that reminds you of this particular leg of your trip”
I’ve seen something similar in the US—a fold-down toddler seat with seatbelt in the stall in the men’s room at a Sheetz in southern PA (one large stall, which also contains the changing table, and three urinals—seems to work).
If you want to be part time, you also kind of have to be hourly. There’s not much of a way around it unless you work on quota.
I think the big issue here is simply the fact that the ‘part time’ is only you. So it’s a constant struggle because everybody else related to work (co-workers, boss, clients, subcontractors, vendors, etc) is planning for stuff on their normal schedules, based around the standard 9-5 M-F workweek.
I’ve found much of this depends on which industry you choose to work in, or specialize for from college and early-career. Negotiating any overtime or on-call situations is a must for any skilled worker and takes much of the guesswork out. The two times our resident part-timer got called in, she billed for it all, and…
Flying with kids, especially younger ones, can be a challenge but I don’t see boarding last helping you get them, and you, settled. Why add the pressure of the flight attendants trying to get the plane away? Instead:
And Southwest does let parents and kids board first, for this reason. Southwest also gets people on the plane faster than most other airlines, so kids probably won’t be waiting for too long.
I’m even more entertained by the people that stand up as soon as the plane pulls into the gate. They’re just hunched over under the overhead bins for 10+ minutes until everyone ahead of them clears out.
If you’re going on holidays, I hope they are ruined by explosive diarrhea lasting the whole trip, just like you’ll likely ruin people’s flight with a baby. Yeah I’m bitter, I like to sleep.
This sounds like good advice almost all the time. That said, Southwest is definitely the exception. Showing up last to general, unassigned seating is a recipe for getting separated from your kids. Hey, unless that’s what you want. :)
Obviously a YMMV but for me, the exceptions swallow the rule. Overhead space is almost always an issue.
You might want to put the “finally...” disclaimer earlier on. My family flies Southwest the majority of the time and this is a really bad idea on Southwest.
Counter-argument: Southwest Airlines.
There should be a caveat in here for Southwest, which has open seating. Boarding last with children creates absolute havoc when you can’t find two seats together.
Hope you didn’t have any carry-on you were hoping to stow in overhead, because that’s not happening if you board last. Just saying.
lol you just made me google “dangit” to find out if that’s still culturally relevant. It said google is not a verb, but fuckit!
