I'm having to make decisions and evaluate one of my coworkers for his grade for his work experience. I like him, he's a good guy, but when it comes to this I have to be honest as I'm technically his supervisor. He's just a teenage boy though and sometimes their brains fall out, his mistakes are serious though =(

Being an adult and in a position of somewhat power over people sucks.

I should not get into threads on other forums that go along the lines of 'there is no reason to get a well bred dog and I hate breeders and you will never convince me otherwise.'

This is what happens when Chaz is blocked at my work! I browse other, crazier forums.

Yup, what forum were you on in particular?

I have had issues like this with dachshund forums. Batty people.

Went next door to check on something.

Mom's painting her kitchen cabinets. She's always complaining about having too much to do, but WTF . . .

So I ask her a question. She can't hear me (she's selectively hard of hearing, let me grumble under my breath and she has the ears of a predator who catches prey by sound), so I have to repeat it.

No big deal, simple answer. Done.

A couple of minutes later she gets up. Puts her hand in the wet paint she just put on the side of the cabinet and starts screaming about how she messed up her paint because *no one* will leave her alone.

Yes.

Screaming.

So my dad starts chimes in and starts on me for "upsetting your mother."

I tell him you can't rationalize crazy and there's no excuse for pure meanness.

We are struggling to catch up with our bills and someone at my boyfriends work damaged the truck they drive. And since they don't know who because they won't admit to it, the boss is taking the money to fix it out of everyone's checks. (It is a cantaloupe sized hole in the box part of a moving van.) The boss is claiming it will cost $1,500 to fix it and is taking $250 out of Josh's check this week. We don't have the money for this. We have bills, **** it. We have rent, electric...we currently have NO food in our house. This is such bullshit and I am pissed.

It may not even be legal, Barbara.

We're having an adoption day at the store with a local cat rescue and its a disaster. First they show up an hour Kate after calling yesterday to double check times. Then they bring twice as many cats as they said, and then they forget all their crates and stuff so I'm running around finding somewhere for these cats to go. Bah!

I agree Renee, but a little bit of reverence wouldn't be out of the question would it? For f&ck's sake - my own parents that thought Emii was abit hard to grasp have been very upset at what happened and our house has pretty much gone into mourning. Outdoor lights are on at night, candles are lit, incense is burned, and bright colors are avoided all as per traditional practices as well as some non-traditional ones I practice; I'm not saying they have to go all out and never get on with their lives or be weeping their hearts out or anything...but at least some sort of gesture of respect/reservation after their child has passed?

I don't know, I really don't...

The one positive thing I can say about it is at least they aren't being hypocrites?
