Jeff M replied to Dave's discussion Have any of you fucked up a business/mentor relationship before?
"A man has got to know his limitations. Sometimes when you start advancing at your job because of your hard work and ability to take on things that are above your pay grade it's hard to just stop and say i don't think i can accomplish that…"

"Yep as a security precaution people are terminated when they give notice.  Some places feel this is better then to let someone work for another 2 weeks and possibly hurt the operations. "

Jeff M replied to Corbin's discussion "Art of Manliness" in my car?
"may not be manly, but i keep a flashlight, rain jacket, and a pocket knife or razor knife within arms length of me while i drive. i drove over a bridge everyday for most of my life and drowning because i stuck in my seat belt was a real concern."

"i know, i just feel like employers have more power now with such a bad market. why pay you if they could bring in your replacement cheaper and not waste another dime on you? luckily my employer is the polar opposite, and hopefully her next one will…"

Penelope replied to Jeff M's discussion Relocation
"I can't really follow with all the run-on sentences. But, does your wife's employer have more than 50 employees? It's against the law to fire people for taking medical leave. Is there a human resources department that's not part…"

Relocation

So here's a brief intro to what's going on:I have a job that moved me out of state for 2 years. My wife moved with me and found employment out here at a large online college (a physical campus position, that can't be moved to online). My time out here is up in the next few months so we decided to look into buying a house in our home state for when we move back. We've been preapproved for our price range (our preapproval is far above what we're willing to pay), but here's the catch:My wife is…See More

Jeff M replied to Matthew J Dorry's discussion Realization of a disturbing fact: I don't have a positive view of women.
"i agree with this. women don't have to prove anything to you, they'll do fine on their own. i think that a lack of exposure to real women can cause a person to become jaded, then again meeting men of a certain caliber will certainly cause…"

Regular Joe replied to James!'s discussion Amnesty Intl petition against rape as punishment.
"Hey Dan. Your default approach is confrontation and condescension, and then you escalate when people respond in kind. Maybe tone it down a bit, focus on facts and ideas, and dispense with the snark; people might be more open to considering the…"

Regular Joe replied to Zachary Stucki's discussion How do we inform more people about ISIS?
""How can we inform others?" I don't think we need to inform more people about ISIS. Pick up any newspaper, tune into any news broadcast or news channel, load up and news website and ISIS is plastered all over all of them, all day,…"
