these frigging earthquakes. there's another tremor shaking the place as I write
store credit only return policy...WTF...the items are clearly not worn!
I know I should have paid more attention when buying but damn that is one shitty policy.
I'm quite generous in agreeing to do independent readings classes with students. I don't get paid a penny to do them, but I nonetheless have to prepare for them just like regular classes. My students, however, seem not to take them seriously at all. It's the first day of class and my student didn't show up. This is not the first time this has happened.
That is so irresponsible and disrespectful.
Oh, don't worry, I've long since figured out how to filter the worthiness of SF insight by user. To wit: Piob usually has good insight; edina... well... no comment.
Thanks guys for the kind words. Not sure there is any advice, really. I understand the motivators behind my wife's enthusiasm at the invitation; I just have to help her hopefully make the best rational decision considering all the factors and setting aside the more egotistical ones for now. How to play the hand really depends on knowing my wife and our relationship. I don't think any advice out there is a silver bullet, or present a solution I haven't considered. It just is what it is. Even winning battles like this sometimes comes with a heavy price - imagine I talk her out of it and she spends the rest of her life wondering "what if?" and being secretly resentful of me.
Supportive means helping her come to the best decision she can live with and dealing with whatever fallout occurs. That's marriage!
Still, it sucks to be me! (at least in this instance)
FWIW in this particular instance all i did was say that you and I feel the same way about Piob's career/work info
even a broken clock is right twice a day
Best of luck with this, Doug.
Doug did your wife ever attempt to go back to the first company?
Yep. She stays in touch, but nothing particularly appealing is open right now.
She did get a fucking FANTASTIC job offer recently for a major company at a very high level. But it was in the Cayman Islands. Which I actually sort of thought she should have taken! We could have worked that out.
Powers out and had a load in the laundry!
Seriously, WTF is this? Is it a clothing company, or an ad for Final Fantasy 78, the Homo Frontier?
I have never deposited my load into the laundry. Just seems wrong, I guess.
At the risk of composing the second gayest post in the history of SF, I'll say that I've always liked that ad; the guy's visage is pleasant to look at.
