[ - ] Does anyone else have a DH that relies on/consults with his parents over you? Dh has an enormous amount of deference for his father who constantly texts him to "advise" him and generally request updates on his day to day life. We recently had a huge fight because FIL convinced DH that I should accept a job well below my current salary, with a 1 hour commute and with more hours (I work we are relocating) after DH and I agreed it was not a good fit for me and I deserved a better offer. This weekend we had plans, FIL decides we are going to drive to town, invites a ton of family members, and when I tell DH can we try a different day this weekend, he says no FIL wants to do it this way and I don't want to make things difficult for him (Ie FIL said were doing this so we are). Things like this keep happening, some small, some large and I'm starting to feel like I'm married to a little boy who needs to follow his dad's directive regardless of what his wife thinks. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

op: It's driving me insane and I'm starting to lose more and more respect for him. I could tolerate the intrusiveness to an extent, what I cannot tolerate is DH making decisions with his father about our lives and our children at the expense of my own input. Small example but we were driving near his sister's area a few weeks ago and FIL text DH saying you should take your girls (me and baby) to your sisters house. When DH responded we had plans FIL texts she hasn't seen you and the baby in a while are you sure you can't go. Suddenly DH wants to cancel our plans and go see SIL because it's important to FIL. And before you ask, I love SIL and am not trying to avoid her, we just had other plans that day. The only reason FIL even knew where we were was because FIL texts DH daily to ask what he's up to.

I own a rental property upstate and it has been listed for sale several months w/ no offers. I've already dropped the price significantly but broker admits demand for the property is low (its a tiny home among a town w/ bigger homes and school district declining). Most other homes in the area have taken at least 6-9 months to sell. I'm considering also listing it for rent so that I can get immediate occupancy in 2 months until I wait for market conditions to get better in 2-3 years and sell again.

It was a well-intentioned rule to protect poorer families in gentrifying neighborhoods who can no longer afford to live there. Now it is being abused mostly by UMC families who buy cheaper housing elsewhere. [ Reply | More ]

No, it protects poorer families who are generally more transient (gentrification or not) and it still benefits them no matter what a few UMC families do. [ Reply | More ]

There are five kids in my building who all take the bus to a top 5 NYC public 25 blocks away that they are not zoned for. My building is one of the only affordable prewar doorman buildings on WEA with massive apartments (think 3-4 beds under 6k). [ Reply | More ]

But it is widely abused now. I know families who own houses elsewhere, moved to the zone for a year and moved back to their house in a much cheaper area. [ Reply | More ]

It's not a rule, that's how it works out. Our school wanted at least 2 months of bills at time of application which was in the winter. So you have to be in zone in November/December to have the bills. Then you have to wait until September to move. So it adds up to a year. [ Reply | More ]

Yes. You can stay in 234 thru 5th grade. And yes, you may apply to D2 MS if you are in D2 ES. But wait, there's more... You also get to apply to the district you live in. Lets day you move to UWS. You can apply to D3 AND D2 MS. But alas, if you have a younger child; that one might be fucked [ Reply | More ]

Not 4 months because they may check in the fall, so more like 8-12 months, but yes, you can do that. There are no neighborhoods nearby that are cheaper, though (except maybe Chinatown), so your child would have a long commute if you were looking for that. [ Reply | More ]

NYC public Ks are full day. Our school went from 9:00-3:00 to 8:20 - 2:40, so that's about the length of the day, but individual schools can vary the hours. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] You are in a gym running on your favorite treadmill in a long line of 15 empty treadmills. Someone comes over and starts using the treadmill right next to yours despite the 14 other empty ones. Ok np, presumably this is their favorite treadmill. But then as they start running they start spraying sweat all over you. What do you do? 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Not sure what to do, a woman in my building tutors my kids. I prepay her for sessions in advance. We mutually agreed to take a break for several months but it was after I already prepaid her for future sessions. We have always communicated by text and she has been not always responsive. Now I would like to resume the sessions and have send her many texts after which she finally responded that she will check if she can accommodate my preference but then stopped responding despite numerous texts again. I feel so awkward to keep texting her but 1. she owes me many sessions and 2. I really want the sessions to resume. Not sure what to do now.. 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
