I just taught my kids how to do it. 9 and 13. They each have a laundry basket on their closet floor and they use it to take to the washer and then bring back clean clothes to put away. My 9 yr old can't reach the bottom of the washer because it is huge but that is the only help needed. It is not too much if each person does their clothes separately. Then the sorting is NBD. When my mom visits she does all of the laundry and it is nice but it also messes up our system. [ Reply | More ]

I am very very very nice - truly, overly nice. Also, I am the only one who gave him $500 a month for the 3 out of 4 months he has been with us. I'm still viewed as a nagging bitch - there is no escaping it. [ Reply | More ]

Not trying to be combative but why do you believe you are perceived that way? If you are nice and bonus him why wouldn't he find you wonderful? [ Reply | More ]

because it's similar to the battered wife syndrome. the guys yell at him, he feels like he has to work harder and be better for them; so they will eventually like him. with me, I am a stupid nothing softie. [ Reply | More ]

This. Men won't dare do admin work but they fully expect women to. Not that there is anything wrong with admin work but if the men aren't doing it why should you. [ Reply | More ]

Right. the men just keep yelling at him to get it done. I just do it on my own because it's easier. but it's wrong and I should not be doing it. [ Reply | More ]

You’d probably hit that revenue level if you weren’t wasting time doing grunt work. Do you agree? Can you ask for a year to try it? [ Reply | More ]

I do my regular job AND grunt work. I work Sundays, evenings, at home, everything. [ Reply | More ]

They are assholes. No mincing words there. Here's how I see it -- getting you an associate is investing in you. They want more revenue? Then let's not use your time doing admin work that could be put towards bringing in more revenue. $25,000 is nothing to invest in someone of your skills to help level things up. I get you about being shaky and upset easily -- I'm the same way because I've been, quite frankly, holding on to the anger and want to unleash. If you work out, I recommend doing that morning -- it really takes the edge off of me. Calms me and makes me less reactive. Go to them saying, hey, I spend X hours a week doing admin work. My hourly rate is Y. It costs a total of A a week to do this where I can be growing revenue that will more than outpace B dollars to invest in an associate to provide support. Do it calmly and succinctly. You don't have to fight. You've already won. They're just not on board. If they say no, think about plan B. Meaning, do you go? Or do you stay? Companies are short sighted. They wouldn't give me an associate. I quit a year later and they're now drowning in shit. Good luck [ Reply | More ]

Can we meet for coffee : ( I work out intensely every morning just to get through my day. I am most poised at 10am, when the blood is really settling all around my body - but this meeting is 3pm, right when my energy drops, hair goes flat, and I'm weak. I will try to be strong though. I love my job, my pay, my schedule, I just hate that I get no respect, and do admin work. Overall, it is still a good deal for me, and I don't want to leave. I just want a dedicated admin. They totally do not care about me, or doing what is right by me.... [ Reply | More ]

EXACTLY this. You need to explain to them that your $200 an hour admin job isn't beneficial to the firm. [ Reply | More ]

They don't care in a $2.7 trillion firm, unless she can prove to the person directly above her that his own bottom line is being affected and could benefit from a $25k spend. [ Reply | More ]

agree here. OP, this really sucks. years ago two young women reported to me - their office was right next to mine. they would complain how horrible it was to have a woman boss, that I should handle my own administrative work. fortunately they both moved to jobs outside the firm. and it sucked for them.

[ - ] Will be in New Orleans one night (have never been) with DC to look at Tulane. Staying right next to campus. Would like to have a fun, very New Orleans-style dinner. Not overly touristy, but fun. Recs? Thanks! 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP We will only have the one evening (flying out early next day), so ideally in an historic/fun part of the city where we can walk around to burn off the fat grams. lol [ Reply | More ]

I just recently went to this place called Le Petite Grocery, which is in the Garden District. The neighborhood is absolutely stunning. The food is fabulous -- it's fine dining but with roots in the south. Not touristy at all but on all of the foodie magazine itineraries. There are more famous places, i.e. Jaques Imos, etc, but they are SUPER popular and very touristy. [ Reply | More ]

Come back and tell us how Tulane was. My son received a letter he can apply for free and is eligible for merit aid. We can't afford to visit so he may apply and visit if accepted. [ Reply | More ]

OP: my DS got that letter too. Tulane actually doesn’t have an application fee. I didn’t realize that either, but now see it is a very clever marketing strategy! I’ll check in when we get back in a few weeks :) [ Reply | More ]
