The local healthcare system is here because we have high poverty and jobs in the hospital pay the best. There is, imo, a majority of healthcare workers here who are simply collecting the highest paycheck available and because of the turnover rate few of them are experienced. I’ve stayed home as much as possible Read more

Anyone else see a younger man pleading with Boomer to think of something other than fucking money for a minute? Cause this really does seem to represent a lot of conversations I’ve seen and had.

I believe one of her parents behavior killed her career.  Her dad was a stage monster if I remember correctly.

TBF we’ve really let a lot of early Gen-Xers slide under the radar with their Boomer-like terribleness.  From what I can tell, 1972 is about the cutoff.  The others had just enough adult time in the 80s to internalize Greed is Good.

A not-insignificant portion of our homeless population uses Starbucks during the day to work. The gig economy is a trip.

I love my Fiat.  It’s my favorite car I’ve ever owned.  This makes me big sad.  I’ve never had any problems with it.

This same thing literally happened to me on my 16th birthday on a Costa cruise. The only thing that saved me was I ended up vomiting severely for over an hour before they got me undressed.  They eventually ditched me on the floor outside of the elevator on the floor they thought I was staying. My dad found me at Read more

I always forget that the Jez comments are a classist nightmare of folks who are genuinely repulsed by folks who remind them that a great many people in this country don’t even have savings but J Crew for all!! What wealthy women married to wealthy men in positions of power wear is the least interesting or worthwhile Read more

Depends on your skin.  I’ve slept in my makeup for 20 years and have clear skin with no crow’s feet at 40.  The only difference cleansing at night makes is with my lashes.

I live in the Deep South and it actually mostly isn’t. White upper middle class Christians are the ones pushing this hard. Poor folks don’t have the money to get a say one way or the other. Even in local comment sections the lifers are outnumbered. Shit, some of the most vicious brothers I’ve met live in MN.  But Read more

She once came to my table and sat across from me at a union function while she ate bbq with her fingers because half of her face was still numb from the dentist.  She’s gonna eat, dammit.

Same. 39, childless, and covered in stretch marks. I didn’t have a baby, I just got fat and then slightly less fat. I feel more confident and comfortable than the years I tried to maintain the ideal. I don’t obsess over everything I eat and enjoy food without guilt. I’m healthy, happy, and fulfilled. I may not have Read more

I worked with her MN staff on various projects. Her former CM is out and started his own consulting firm. If he won’t go back, that tells me everything I need to know. Read more
