[ - ] We live in suburbs. Last night, DH was going out to pick up something while I was nursing the baby. He left the bowl of chocolates outside the home because it would have been difficult for me to leave the baby if someone knocks for candy. When he came back, he saw the group of black kids and they stole the whole bowl. They saw DH coming and they ran away like a street thug. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

So when she has a bad day I assume she is just having a bad day but then somehow the bed day turns into worse etc. I don't know what triggers these declines in performance. I don't know what makes her resentful all I a sudden. We pay well, job has gotten easier over time. I don't know how to address it when I see that she is back to resentful and slacking. She always denies resentment and has a reason for all performance slips. For example she will say that kids didn't feel like going to playground or children really wanted cereal for dinner and so she didn't make dinner. [ Reply | More ]

NP - I agree you have a lot of excuses. I wouldn't fire her but I have always set clear and reasonable expectations for performance up front.

I don't make excuses for my inaction and expect employees to be clairvoyant or magically know something is an issued if it hasn't been discussed. Bosses like you are difficult to work for.

I do all this. Like I sad she denies being resentful and will not open up. She comes up with excuses for things not getting done. She will say to my face that 2 hours without kids wasn't enough time to make dinner because she also had to do laundry and next day will do dinner and no laundry. When she has a good day she can easily do laundry and dinner with no issues. So I know she is giving me BS excuses but I don't even know what to say but can you please try to do both tomorrow and then she will let some other thing drop. She does this methodically and non of these problems exist when she isn't in this resentful mood stretch [ Reply | More ]

Well sometimes crying children need to be ignored under certain circumstances.

They're just voicing the same resentment childfree people have had for years. You should just remind them that every time someone stays home to take care of kids, it's a childfree person's opportunity to step up and move ahead. Most of the great projects I got to work on, and most of the promotions and raises that followed, happened because I was there when someone else was off taking care of kids. [ Reply | More ]

Again, if you company hired enough staff for the workload, this wouldn't happen. But they would rather employ fewer people and funnel the profits to shareholders and execs. [ Reply | More ]

Then maybe you should direct your outrage towards the employers who don't hire enough staff. Couple of years ago my company offered reduced week schedules where you could work 10 hours per day for 4 days. They cancelled it because why bother when the suckers can work 10 hours per day 5 days per week? [ Reply | More ]

I'm OP - there are some amazing things coming from Millenials, and I love a diverse team. I'm open to feedback and take it, but have found many Millenials on our teams to be offended by feedback or coaching. Is there a specific angle that may work better with this generation, other than constant praise? [ Reply | More ]

I'm a Gen x'ER and I agree with this completely. There's no honor in working until 7pm every night. Unfortunately there are still people of my own age who bought into that scam - "don't you see how great I am, I'm here all the time!" It's a sucker bet. I run my own business and I am out the door at ten to five every day, and I tell my employees to do the same. It's just a job. [ Reply | More ]

Dear Gen X bosses, Please consider growing a sense of humor. Also, try to remember with more clarity and accuracy what you were like in your 20s, because we can tell you from experience that you weren't that great. Learn to embrace change, and just plain learn from the next generation, because we can tell you, again from experience, that the next generation has a lot to teach. A little humility goes a long way. Signed, the Baby Boomers who used to be your managers but have taken early retirement buy-outs and are now your consultants. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Spin off from the catcalling post...do you actually get asked out, like really asked out by strangers? It's happened twice in the last year. I started chatting to both - once in a grocery store and once on a street corner. Just being friendly. I did not look great either time. It made me realize that if my cool, gorgeous single 30-something friends would LOOK UP FROM THEIR PHONES they may meet someone. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm older than you and met my BF that way. I'd walk past some construction workers who made comments to me which I ignored. This man who'd been walking behind me said something about them and we started chatting. He gave me a short intro and his biz card. We went out and have been seeing each other almost 3 years. I was focused on the real world not my phone when we met. [ Reply | More ]
