This is a board where people express their opinions, including criticisms. I'm happy to hear what the OP above, says. Keep it coming. As for "go away if you don't like it," that's akin to people with constructive criticisms of the US government who are told to "love it or leave it." We could, however, have done without the "you are all idiots." That was implied. [ Reply | More ]

It's because they're unhappy. Please don't take any of this personally. Just smile and keep moving, don't get dragged into their drama. I joined a local crossfit and met a couple of good people this way, one of them invited me to join a book club and that's been fun too. [ Reply | More ]

Don't worry about this. Just say that your job requires you to have constant coverage. Don't engage about it otherwise. This is like having a tesla vs a civic. Just answer one thing and move on. [ Reply | More ]

Nanny #2 could have stayed upstairs with DB the whole time, or she could have dropped DB off and gone back upstairs, or you or nanny #1 could have run upstairs when DB woke up. There was no need for all 3 of you to be there. [ Reply | More ]

OK, but think it through next time. You and your entourage were like an invasion. Certainly no need for DB and nanny 2 to be there. At least ask if hostess minds if you bring a nanny, and you can explain you are on call. [ Reply | More ]

Yeah, I live in Europe (not Italy, though) and appreciate the pharmacy culture. I know that sounds weird, but in America it just seems like a division of RiteAid. I find pharmacists often know their stuff better than doctors, so it's nice to have them accessible and working in some beautiful shop. [ Reply | More ]
