Work relationships

We should have added this forum! :D

I have a challenge at work. The retired "expert" was offered her services to assist me in my new position. The problem is that she is going beyond assisting...

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

If DIL meant this to be hurtful, she's got a win-win. Does he know it was mailed to your DD?

The same reasoning which illustrates that it was stupid for him to sign it are the same reasons why...

Re: idiots on the road

One of my boys installed a dash cam because of the nuts.

I'm glad you're safe.

Re: Letting go ... DS & me

You are doing a great job! Learning to hold your tongue because they are getting older is the hardest thing! I clench my teeth a lot. ;)

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

Because it's easier to sign it than it is to fight with the woman he's sleeping with. Men (all people, really) do some dumb things to avoid a fight. He's probably thinking that the paper means...

Re: "child" custody & "adult" child

I'm sorry, snafu. I'm sure you'll miss him. But, you know early enough that you can make some plans to cheer yourself up.

Re: Dr apts. responsibility

"Normal" is exactly what you're doing. If DS wants you, go with him. If he needs you to make appointments for him while he's at school, do it.

My kids just were ready to do it themselves.

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

I understand your pain. I don't want to minimize that.

I do want you to hold off on any confrontations. This "living will" is not the right fight. The document is stupid.

Honestly, DIL...

Re: U.S. Open

She's young. She'll be back, and to many cheers, I am sure.

I wasn't impressed with Serena's behavior during the matches.

I am so sorry that your grandchildren are going through this.

IMO, your grandchildren are being abused, not severely, but still suffering emotional and physical abuse. As a mandated reporter, I...

But, other than moral support, I'm not contributing anything anymore so I just said, "Good...

My DB is middle-aged. He has just quit another job. He has bad credit, no property, and can't stay at one job long enough to be eligible for a pension.

He's got an opportunity to chase his...

Sadly, this person works in social work. She often complains about being overworked, underpaid, and her time off not being respected.

Seriously! I have some "best friends" but we have been "best friends" since high school. That's when we used the label, not now that we're all grown up. That's very immature.
