I bought a kangaroo leather show lead from this person up in Canada. I had ordered from her before with no problems, and I loved my leash from her so I ordered again. She never sent me the leash, and said that she was too busy to make it so she'd send me a refund. That was over 6 MONTHS AGO. She kept reassuring me that she'd send the refund, so that I missed the time period that you can "report" something on Paypal as fraud. I email her every month or so, reminding her, and she hasn't responded or she's said "I will get to it soon, so sorry!!"- and yeah, still sitting here without a leash and without $77. FML. I am super pissed.

I found out today that I have to find a new daycare in January. We've had a private person (wife of husband's coworker) who has watched Clive in her home (with one other child here and there) since he was 5 weeks. She's decided to no longer watch other kids.

I've never had to do a public daycare. The one we toured before going with a private individual was skeery. As a bonus, my work hours suck to go along with daycare hours. People are fabulous about sharing tales of bitten children and such.

I'd hoped he'd be able to go here for another year or so until he moved on to preschool. Blah. If there were a viable job force in town, I'd take a third shift job so he could just stay home.

I swear lately that work is just wiping me out. That plus the thousand things I have to do all the time. It's like every weekend or day off I have family members coming into town or I'm having to go to someone's birthday or something.

I love them but I haven't had a weekend to myself in ages. And this upcoming weekend more family is coming in. But I haven't seen them in a long time. But I still just want a weekend where I don't have to entertain and have more time to catch up on housework and things like that.

Welcome to retail, and honestly what is wrong with working more then the 5 hours a day? I mean how many hours a week are you working?

I get it hurts, but what stops you from working? Are you still in school? Are you working to pay bills?

I work in retail and I can tell you most places is like that.

Sadly, this is pretty much how it works on most jobs, retail or otherwise.

But didn't you tell her AFTER you were hired that you wanted to work no more than 5 hours? So really, you broke your promise to her to work when needed? That's how I understood it, at least.

I'm not sure about where you live, but here, you legally can't hire somebody/make them come in for a 2 hour shift. So she was likely trying to keep a decent number of hours for you. If it happens again, ask somebody else to work that shift for you, or ask them to give it to somebody else. It's really that easy.

Being an adult sucks.
