Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 5358

New tennat in my building, just throws his postal commercials on the floor in front of the mailboxes, instead of walking the entire 4 meters to recycle bin, fucking idiot. He has live here for less than 2 months and I already hate him.

And yes I pick them up and throw them back into his mailbox.

Just to make me hate him even more his shit head kids uses the elevator as their personal playground.

I have a colleague who is totally useless (actually most of them are).  This guy IMs me and asks me if I can join "this meeting."  He sent me the meeting invite an hour after it concluded.

ymmv but with more than say 2 kids i think it's pretty difficult to financially justify 2 working parents, especially being that the pressure between job and family remains regardless. we've just got the one kid (for now...) and we also just rolled our part-time nanny. our default is that one or both of us is around 100% of the time, so i do most of my work at night and weekends. nannies? relatives? really it's a pretty tenuous deal.

I don't know - I'm not a parent - but I read a book by an economist arguing that the marginal cost of children goes down and things get easier.  Especially seeing as they get a bit older, the older ones can and will help take care of the younger ones.

I don't know if you guys shop in the kinds of stores that a reglar man shops at, but if you do you've probably seen "breakfast biscuits" marketed under the brand name of BelVita. That gets me to condition of PO'd because they basically just picked a brand name that already sounded natural to people on account of Velveeta. (It was Kraft what named the product BelVita, and they also own Velveeta, FWIW.) I refuse to buy a product whose brand appeal is based on trickery of mente.

Heard the stories for years from co-workers but figured they were just complainers. Since my kid came into this world we have had nothing but trouble with negotiating a balance between work and home and even though we have a full-time nanny to make that easier it's still anything but. Our nannies have proven extremely unreliable and regularly call in sick with no notice and or pull other shenanigans. I know we aren't alone here and accept that the SF labor market and cost of living works against me.

I am counting the days until we are free from the tyranny of child care but perhaps we need to face the reality that it's basically impossible to have two working parents unless at least one has an extremely accommodating role. I downsized my job to make things easier by reducing commute and hours but still struggling to make it all work.

Someone (Mr G?) should start a parenting rant thread.

and then they answer back....

when i was a kid - like 8 or 9 - i somehow got the idea to "write" The Hobbit. i remember wanting to know what it felt like to write a book and so i sat down and, with Tolkien's book open before me, started typing. after a couple of nights my folks asked me what the hell i was doing. i explained and they pretty immediately told me it was a silly idea. looking back on this makes me hobbitledy-jobbitledy.

I am tired of people saying "doobie" (as in "I could sure use a doobie would be fun to smoke") it is just a ridiculous word.

I like when radio disc jockeys say "Well they aren't related but they Doo-bie Brothers!" when they intro a Doobie Brothers song. I also enjoyed when Rerun was caught bootlegging their concert.

You should see just how ridiculous (funny) it is after a doobie.

Childcare is a PITA but don't forget the longer term cost of stunted career advancement if one parents steps out of the work force for a prolonged period. It could be worth swallowing some exorbitant nanny/daycare costs in the short term.

And thanks for sharing the suggestion on an unusual source of funds. Though if you rolled a full-time nanny, I expect you'd recover more cash.
