[ - ] Occasions like Halloween make me feel bad for my sister - 39, desperately wants to be married, have kids, etc. Hasn't had a serious BF in years, rarely goes on dates. She's tagging along to trick or treat with us (her idea) but I can tell she just feels down. Any suggestions on how to help her?

Do you mean operating memory (DRAM) or storage memory (for files, pictures, videos)?

So many of these wealthy women have no life (or work) experience and do not know how to supervise or speak to an employee. Never mind that they are just plain stupid and mean. (I have never nannied, but hear these women talk to their nannies, and it makes my brain hurt.) 24 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

op: I've noticed that too. But maybe the few that are find better employers? (Our sitter when my kids were little was neither hard-working nor smart, but reliable and kind, which was fine with us.) [ Reply | More ]

I know someone who's been through more than 30 nannies inside the last five years. She thinks it's them, not her. [ Reply | More ]

Wow. That's amazing. Why does she keep hiring them? Obviously, she really does not want someone working for her. [ Reply | More ]

Well, it was an "and"--work experience, and the ability to communicate expectations. And yes, there are many wealthy women with little meaningful work experience. [ Reply | More ]

It is true. She spends 1/2 of her day lunging around our empty apartment, chatting on the phone and maybe doing a little bit of housework while I work in the office then I rush home to make dinner while she goes shopping after spending 3 1/2 hard hours with kids. [ Reply | More ]

My nanny had a master degree and I am a professor. We got along just fine. Not sure how I would deal with some of the nannies I see in the park though. In fact I would never leave my children with some of these characters so maybe it all matches up in the end. [ Reply | More ]
