I just found out that a few of my coworkers talk a lot of shit about me. Apparently, they don't believe I have a Master's degree, they think I suck as a supervisor, etc. This isn't reason for dismissal, obviously.
What I did find out tho, is that they are constantly late opening the office and patients are left waiting outside the door for up to 15 minutes. They mess up on bills, they refuse to clean up their work stations or keep the waiting area clean & tidy, they all lie/cover up for each other, etc.
I wrote one up for her constant lateness and apparently she laughed it off, said she doesnt give a shit because she couldn't find a baby sitter and her kids come first. I understand kids come first, but she should at least call me and tell me she will be late so I can figure out some other way to open.
And.....when they are 15 min. late, they don't mark it on their time cards. We have an honor system.
TQC- we are an at will state. Can I fire them? One gave notice already that she will be leaving in late July.
What are you reading/watching now? What do you think of it so far? What are you going to read/watch after?
I'm currently... reading: Out by Natsuo Kirino. I'm really enjoying it and want to find out to all the characters already. watching: Dawson's Creek though it's on the backburner since I've been reading more these days.
Going to... read: Ready Player One - Ernest Cline (I heard/read good things about this one) watch: How I Met Your Mother (maybe since my brother is highly recommending it to me)
I recently left a job on negative terms (they lied to me about what they actually hired me for and what they were paying me, so I walked out; don't judge). How do I pick up my final paycheck? How do I gather the nerve and what do I say? What if I have to pick it up from someone I know? I knew I should have signed up for direct deposit.
I'm freakin out here.
Have you had a negative end to a job? What was it like? How did you deal?
TQC, I am about to spend the next five weeks studying abroad in London, as well as visiting Paris and Amsterdam. What are some things that I MUST DO while I am there? I am up for exploring and for finding non-touristy things as well as touristy. Cheap and free would be awesome.
Have you ever studied abroad? Where? How was it? What advice can you give me?
DK / DC: If you could study abroad anywhere, where would you go?
Have any of you adopted senior pets before? How was the experience when compared to adopting an adult pet?
I'd like to adopt some cats/dogs in the future, and I think I'd like to adopt some seniors because nobody ever adopts them; I'm trying to get a feel for any financial and/or emotional accommodations I'd need to make.
I'm trying to apply for CHIP healthcare for my son, but it's asking how many family members live in my house and what our family income is. Am I supposed to count my husband as living here/add his income even though he's not my son's father? What about my son's bio-dad, since I have no clue what he makes and he's not going to tell me?
ETA: Disregard, I found a number and was able to speak with someone. She said my husband counts wrt family size, but not to include his income. Ooookay!
Have any of you had a breast reduction? Did you have your insurance pay for it or did you pay out of pocket? If your insurance paid for it, how difficult was it to get your insurance to approve it? How long did the entire process of getting insurance approval take?
I'm a little lost as to what to do with my current situation.
My son's biological father has decided to tell me he's going to start a new family with a new women and he's refusing to send child support.
So I have no choice but to take him to court right? I've never been involved in anything like this and it seems no one knows whats right and whats wrong. I've tried looking stuff up online but it all just confuses me.
Have you ever been through this yourself as an adult?
My son is only 9 months old, so it's not going to really affect him. He saw his bio. father MAYBE once a month (which was HIS choice, not mine.)
So we've recently learned that some guys from the next street over walk towards our house, cut through our backyard, hop our fence to get to their house. We felt kind of annoyed by this, but we didn't take any action. About a week ago a huge tree branch and some brush was in our yard and my mom attributed it to the wind, but I felt it was cut down to make the path to their house easier. Today our neighbor confirmed my suspicions and now I am annoyed.
Unfortunately we live in a neighborhood where "snitches" usually get their comeuppance somehow. For reference, our house has been broken into twice, all of our cars at least once. And at least once a month we see cars on our street get important parts stolen.
What would you do if you were in my situation? Moving out, at this point, is not an option.
How do you get a storm/screen door to stay open? There's a square-shaped washer on the pole thingy at the top of the door, but when I slide it all the way to the tube thingy, it doesn't do anything. I always thought that was the way to do it, no?
Edit: the washer has a pronounced lip on the top, which looks like its purpose might be to catch the door frame and hold the door open that way.. but I built the back porch myself ~5 years ago, so perhaps I built the frame a tad too large for a standard storm door. Other than this disproving the widely-held theory that I am perfect, does this sound plausible?
Are there laws where you live about elderly drivers? Do those exist anywhere?
I was on the way home from work and the car in front of me is swerving all over the place, driving in the wrong lane.. they almost hit someone on a motorcycle going the other way! Just barely missed them. I called the police to report it while I was driving, and when they turned, I saw it was just a really really old lady. She should not be allowed to drive!!
