"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. "

"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."

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

"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…"

How can I improve my leadership abilities?

Good evening gentlemenRecently I have been promoted to a Corporal in the US Marine Corps reserve. I was happy being promoted especially cause it was a meritorious promotion and around my two year mark. I only had one problem about this, I feel I lack leading abilities. While I am very good at my job and have good conduct I never really had any leadership experience. I have no idea how to be with my junior Marines how to gain their respect as a leader and their trust. Especially since some were…See More

Out to Build Bridges

This is a GSRM (Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities or LGBTQ+) group.  But And straight men and cis-men are encouraged to join as well.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate…See More
