Targe employee discount (nothing to do with bathrooms) [Apr. 28th, 2016|07:14 pm]
The Question Club

kindmemory
A friend of mine got a job at Target (last year I think) and I heard some other friends talking about her--"oh she shouldn't use her employee discount for anyone but close family, not friends, they fire you for that."

I went through her checkout line shortly after that (I hadn't been shopping Target so much since she got the job, so hadn't been there on her shift before), and said, don't you give me any discounts! She said she "oh, I'm allowed". I insisted no, nicely.

Does anyone know about this, Target's employee discount policy, because I really hate to take advantage of anyone, especially if it means they get in trouble. Friend and I are in Southwestern Ohio.

So I don't know how you guys' Facebook (assuming you have one) feed is, but on mine a lot of content is going on about Target's verbal confirmation of their long standing policy regarding trans people.  It's simple, people can use the restroom that corresponds with their gender identity.  And I just can't keep off these posts.  I'm trans and I have a lot of Facebook friends that are trans.  Most of the content is good, just reposts of posts in support of Target, or posts that are critical of the reactionary videos being made by the boycottTarget people.  I cannot stay out of the comments on these posts, I know it's talking to brick walls for the most part, but I can't quit commenting.  I'll stay off the posts for a while but then just go back again and keep getting embroiled in a comment battle.  What do you suggest to stay off these posts?

These questions are brought to you by Home Depot [Apr. 26th, 2016|12:45 pm]
The Question Club

l_o_lostshadows
I just got new trash cans. What's the best way to mark them with my address?
I've had no luck getting sticky numbers and letters to stay stuck, but I don't know what paint would work best. (They're plastic.)

What's the last thing that made you feel old?
I briefly got excited that the delivery date of the trash cans had moved up.

What practical item do you seem to accumulate way faster than you actually use them?
Notebooks. I just got four more. (In my defense, trying to pad a Home Depot order to as close to $45 as possible is tricky. A lot of cheap items are in store only.)

Is anyone developing LJ anymore? [Apr. 26th, 2016|02:58 pm]
The Question Club

radiantsoul
Has Livejournal basically decided to stop communicating entirely with its English speaking userbase? Or is there an official channel I am missing?

The last news post was in August 2015, the last changelog post was Jan 2013, the last LJ_dev post was October 2015, Howto was October 2013, learn_support was July 2013, LJ_Biz was Nov 2008, LJ_policy was March 2015, LJ_design was August 2009, LJ_style was May 2012, LJ_support was MArch 2013, lj_textmessage was March 2008, s2how was October 2009, LJ_nifty was March 2015, LJ_Feedback was April 2015, LJ_Maintenance was February 2014, LJ_release was November 2014, LJ_spotlight was December 2011, LJ_2008 was August 2008, Paid_members was April 2011, LJ_English was March 2013, LJ_userdoc was Nov 2012, LJ_translate was Nov 2012, Howto_userdoc was Jan 2012.

LJ_abuse was updated a week ago and LJ_sugestion was also this month(although the last idea that was actually implimented appears to be combining tags from 6 May 2013). Writers_block was March 2016.

I see the release numbers go up at the bottom of my screen, but honestly nothing really seems to have changed.

So my question is has livejournal got another conduit by which it can talk to listen to its userbase. Or has it just decided to shut down all official communication? And is there any further development planned on this site? I am guess that this is now essentially a Russian website and the English speaking part might get some development as a spin-off. But I wonder if there even is an office in SF anymore. I am not even sure if brenden who set up ONTD even is still employed.

What do you do about previous coworkers lying on LinkedIn?

I worked as a sales coordinator at X company, starting May 2014. The person who took the job after me says he took the job in April 2014.

I wanted to think that maybe he just put the wrong year, but he started July 2015. He had another job at that same place, which he started way before 2014.

I'd pass it off as nothing, but the way that they have treated me before and after I left (accusing me of lying about my job title during interviews with hiring managers who called for a reference check, and taking over a month to pay me since my paychecks kept getting "lost" in the mail) makes me suspicious.

is there potential for a future employer to think I am lying about my job history, simply because someone else put the same title with dates that overlap?

Hey, TQC, here's one that's bugging me.

If you're emailing someone to whom you've never spoken before, and you don't have a surname (or is it sirname??) but you do have their first name, is it better to put "Dear Bob/Mary," or "Dear Sir or Madam," at the beginning of the email?


(I got the person's email address which is firstname@jobplace.com but his last name is not visible anywhere to me and I don't want to make a mistake, as this will be a job application for a job I would both love and excel at, and I'm overthinking this for sure, but I'd rather make the best impression possible)

Dk/Dc: where is your favourite place to travel to?

Does anyone know why I am unable to see anything on Instagram? I created an account to be able to view pics and they still don't show for me now. I'm using Chrome and it's up to date, and IG's help pages have been worthless... I don't see a loading symbol or anything, just blank squares instead of pics.

Do you know any "secret" recipes?
I do not, but my roommate used to work for a local chain and he knows their secret biscuit recipe. He's baking some this morning and the house smells DIVINE!

DK/DC: I wanna go dancing tonight but I can't decide where! What would you do?
Option A: Soul Night with a group of friends. It's free, but it doesn't start until 10 pm and I'd likely need to take a cab there and back. I like the venue, it's verging on "incredibly hip," but it's pretty small.
Option B: A queer dance party at a multi-floor club! $7 cover and I'd be going alone, though I'd likely run into folx I know and make new friends too. Close enough that I can bike to it.

I think that maybe moving out of LiveJournal would be beneficial. I have tried journal apps and I really do not want a blog just an online diary for me, alone. Call me unsociable..

Does anyone know a good diary app, site that I can keep a private diary?

Am I delusional to think that anything online is truly private?

So, in an effort to save money on protein, I have been making tofu meals once or twice a week instead of meat.

I have noticed that whenever I say I had tofu, or if I bring tofu as part of my lunch to work, or mention tofu at all, people seem to have an opinion about it.

"I don't know how you eat that shit. I'm too much of a carnivore for tofu."

"If I told my husband it's tofu for dinner, he'd tell me to fuck off..."

So what's your opinion on tofu? Is tofu weird or something?
