[ - ] My cleaning lady is so weirdly nasty. Whenever she comes she's got a look on her face, she just walks in without knocking, she barks at me about where the cleaning products are, and then spends the whole time while she's cleaning on her cell phone talking in her native language, no doubt about what an asshole she thinks I am. I mean, yes, I know I could just get rid of her, but its so weird to see someone who is getting paid what amounts to $20 an hour to do manual labor be pissy about it. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I'm a writer/editor looking for a full time job in NYC and I'm getting a lot of pushback at interviews because I spent three years freelancing full time. My freelance gigs were with very reputable sites, had daily deadlines and my clips are great.

Don't mention your son. If you were a man, they wouldn't hold it against you. Say you freelanced because you were trying to gain experience with a wide range of publications. Indicate how your freelance experience gives you deep knowledge of the field. Also tell them in the interview (in some direct way) that no one will do a better job in this position than you. Exude confidence. [ Reply | More ]

OP: Oh, I am all about confidence. And for a long time I didn't mention by son at all in interviews. It's just come up a few times. All my works for the past three years has been contract, which is kind of the way editorial is going. Yet, the tone of some people when they, "Oh, you haven't worked in an office in a loooong time." is bizarre. I need to go back full time because I need benefits, etc. This is def not the way I thought it would be, especially with my background. I've been in the biz for over 10 years and took some time off to freelance after having a baby. [ Reply | More ]

Maybe it's a nice way of saying it's not a good fit? Also, I'm in the same industry, and the freelancers tended to be the less sought after writers across the board (I realize that's harsh, and particularly since you made the change for your family - but their is still the stigma of 'less than' imo). I think you will get a job, but you're going to have to work a little harder for this one - and once you've worked in an office for a year or two again, you'll be 'back' where you were before you went to freelance status. It sucks, but I think this is the reality. [ Reply | More ]

You can get a recommendation from any school guidance counselor, or look up local counselors covenient to you who do children and families. With our health plan we don't need a referral and up to 12 visits per calendar year are covered. Past 12 visits the counselor/therapist needs to submit documentation justifying the extra or extended visits. My guess is you could call any school's guidance office and ask for the names of counselors that school uses. Just pretend to have a student at the school. You can call public or private schools. We had no trouble at all. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] OWs get off on competing with the wife and kids. They require supreme sacrifice and total allegiance. They want the guy to give up something significant to demonstrate fealty to her — his wife and kids. It’s a competition and she must win it. This is symptomatic of some kind of character/personality disorder. Completely without empathy. All cheating involves narcissism. The wife is someone who must be eliminated from the arena. Humiliated. Conquered. Part of the pleasure is mindfucking the wife. This is not to deflect blame from the DH at all, who is 100% for his own actions.

I'm from Bklyn, leaning toward Grace or Friends Seminary over Brooklyn Friends. This is my 4th kid (daughters went ss for hs)so I'm familiar with the Brooklyn independents. Bklyn Friends has always struggled to retain/attract "top" students for hs. IB program was implemented to combat perception that hs academics are less than stellar. I know kids who have left for other high schools, because they wanted "top tier," and kids who have stayed and enjoyed their experience. It's not an HYP feeder, if that's what you are looking for. Grace is new, first class graduates in 2016. Alumni are strong - there's a lot of money supporting the building of that high school! They have a highly regarded college admissions team, which has been in place since inception and indicates the administration is serious about sending kids to top tier schools. They've spent a lot of time designing an interesting and somewhat progressive curriculum. No APs, but the trend at top independents/boarding schools is away from that, so I think that shouldn't be factor. Facilities are quite nice, low student-teacher ratio. We're impressed. Kids seem normal, too. DS has friends there who absolutely love it. [ Reply | More ]

^and I don't understand that correlation between a tough job market / economic circumstances and acting like an entitled brat who wants to tell the bosses their business. [ Reply | More ]

You've got an axe to grind, and want to feel like you had it harder than they do. That's cool, I guess. I don't see it. Also, I don't have such a hard time with these newer workers who won't take shit from their employers. I always hated being the young employee being sent off to my cube to do something I knew was wrong or inefficient or just plain dumb because my boss yelled at me to do it, since I knew I could do it better but wasn't "allowed" to. I have no beef with employees who aren't willing to spin their wheels and placate their bosses to prove their fealty. [ Reply | More ]

+1 I'm 38 and in HR/TA for a multinational. Millennials are no worse or better than any other generation; they're just the latest generation getting beat up on by the media. [ Reply | More ]

Yes. This is a settled matter. Boomers made promises to themselves that they didn't pay for. And now they want the $ (their right). Without paying for it (their entitlement). Millennial is smaller, has to pay for itself, and for the boomers. They are basically fucked by their parents/grandparents. [ Reply | More ]
