[ - ] My family is going to combust over money. My grandpa died year at 91 and my grandma is in her mid 80s and still going strong. They have 4 kids, 2 sons and 2 daughters, including my dad. My grandparents are really difficult but my dad has been taking care of them for the last 5 years (he moved them to an apartment near his house). When my grandpa died 3 years ago, my grandma moved in with my dad and he and his wife have been caring for her. Anyway, somehow word got out that she's decided to leave her $300K inheritance to him and all hell has broken loose. I feel like my grandma can do whatever she wants to do with that money and it will likely go to my and my brother. We have a ton of cousins and everyone feels that the money should be split between the grandchildren. Thoughts? 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

NP My family had similar drama. My grandmother wanted to leave her money to each of her three children. I'm an only child. My mom's two brothers each have two kids. So one of my uncles convinced my grandmother (as in, she was scared and he seemed angry at her and she did it under some duress) to change it to leave it to each of the 5 grandkids (so his family got 2/5 instead of 1/3). I never said anything but my mom died when I was pretty young and my uncle knew I could have used that money. I figure it is what it is but man, money makes people suck [ Reply | More ]

that's not the point. The point is that they hired you under certain conditions. These flexible conditions is probably part of the reason why you remained on your job for 9 years. Your new boss is a total bitch. Especially if you can get your work done on time. "Support your coworkers"???? This is BS. Your coworkers need to do their own work. You are not responsible for them. Anyway, if you cannot deal with new hours and no one , higher up, would go to bat for you now, say yes to 9-6 and then quietly look for something more flexible. [ Reply | More ]

yes I said this. But she should always consider looking elsewhere. If her company, after 9 years, does not value her enough to override the new boss' apparently idiotic decision then its time to let the company become part of your past. [ Reply | More ]

If you've managed to pull off that deal for 9 years with your old boss, then I'd consider that a win. This new boss/management team wants to do things their way and that's their prerogative. Your prerogative is to address it with them and ask them to work with you. If they refuse to, then I would look for a new job...assuming that you have no other options for sorting your childcare.

yes, i explained that this was negotiated when i was hired and that i have had no problems getting my work done during this time and that i am able to stay as late as necessary on the 2 other days of the week, but she didnt really hear me. I have to choice but to fall in line as requested. [ Reply | More ]

Ugh. I can totally empathize. I was hired by someone who said it was OK if I left at 5 and not 6 because my kids were in a daycare center that closed. I happily agreed to a reduced salary because of this. I later found out that my coworkers didn't know that they had cut my pay, and that they resented the fact that I was "leaving early." This is the problem - even if you can make an arrangement with the new boss, others may resent it. [ Reply | More ]

totally sucks, I'll manage, but im pissed about it. I dont think my immediate boss ever told this lady about my work schedule. New boss lady has been here nearly a year. She finally called me in last week- im sure someone complained and gave me up. The other 2 people that worked here and had small kids have also been let go during the last 2 rounds of layoffs.
