[ - ] Getting laid off at work at a big bank. They offered me a standard severance package for someone at my level of 16 weeks' salary, no bonus. I've been working there just 18 months but I'm 56 years old. Should I negotiate for a better deal? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

That's pretty good for only 18months. Maybe you can say, "thanks, I'll review it with my lawyer and get back to you." I think after a certain age, you have more time to respond. [ Reply | More ]

16 weeks for 18 months is really good. I guess you can try for more but offer sounds generous [ Reply | More ]

Look at it this way-the company doesn't actually have to give you anything-very generous [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] DH was having a hissy fit last night about kids, their mess, the state of the place etc. At one point he threw a skipping rope towards DD7 and it hit her in the leg (I saw him throw it, I didn't see it hit, DD says it hit her in the leg). When I said to him "You can't throw things at kids" everything escalated. He screamed at me "Are you calling me a liar" and I said "Yes, although you've probably convinced yourself that the bullshit coming out of your mouth is now the truth". He lost it, called DD out, asked her to repeat it etc etc. Then started picking on me about something else, brought up an ex-boyfriend etc etc. This happens maybe once a year. I felt afraid when he came near me. Not interested in therapy, have tried that over the years, he says he'll go but won't go. Actually I feel pretty much at the end of the tether, can't be bothered going around again. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

He should not have thrown the rope at her, but you should not have escalated the situation in front of the kids. What he did wasn't OK either way but around the kids, safety first (physical and emotional). If you are done, but focus on a peaceful transition. [ Reply | More ]

Was the house, in fact, a mess because of the kids? [ Reply | More ]

Ouch. If you end up getting divorced, your dd will think it is her fault. If you are done, I would talk to him and agree to wait a while and not speak another nasty word to one another until things smooth over and cooler heads can prevail. It will still screw up the kids' lives, but perhaps they won't think it's b/c of them. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Biggest ERB scandal was not the prepping, but the bias that the testers had when they came to the schools to do the testing. If you look at the average score of a test administered at the test center and the average score when given at a nursery school, you would be shocked! 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yes, ISAAGNY never addressed this more significant issue because their member schools benefitted greatly from this arrangement. [ Reply | More ]
