  1. I hope it goes well, Ender! I have an interview tomorrow morning for a job maintaining and updating contracts for a property management company. Basically stuff that an attorney would do, but who wants to pay for that? I have an interview on Monday with a dental insurance start-up for positions not yet listed. One is related to a position that is listed, as a Member Success Representative, which sounds a lot like customer service and would be a step down for my career, but if the money is right, I’m willing to consider it. Especially since it’s not an entry level position. The other

  2. I just accepted the job offer. I start the 28th. It's a $2 dip in pay, but that's actually okay - I'm still in the process of getting disability, and there's a cap on what you can earn to qualify, so this should keep me comfortably within limit.

  3. I just love "YOU DON'T KNOW ME" posts decrying assumptions made by the other person that immediately go on to assume a lot about that other person.

  4. Not really a new job, but a couple weeks ago I had a zoom meeting with my boss and his boss. I had requested it because there were several things going on like work piling up, us having to do a lot more than normal (even before covid), and the fact that my seniority doesn't seem to count for anything. I laid out a case that my group does far more than other groups do with the exact same job titles, yet does not get any additional compensation, and the way I think I came across was pretty upset. Not sure how I was actually perceived, but I felt really upset. It was one of those conversation

  5. Boom....I have an interview. It is a 6 hour drive (it deep in the mountains with lots of twists and turns) so I am tempted to take a half day, but I think I will save that in case I make it to the next round.

  6. “Let’s let the crazies win because they’ll be even more dangerous if we take their toys away” is not a ringing endorsement for the Republican side.

  7. I'm not rolling my eyes at Marc's statement as much as I am that it's just very much part of his pattern. He shows up, only posts in the Lyceum generally, makes some half-assed statements to be contrarian, likes to act like he's smarter than everyone, and tries to impress us by being oddly bipartisan (but not really). He'll imply somebody is uneducated on the topic at hand, or say something outrageously prejudiced, then when there's pushback he cries about how YOU DON'T KNOW ME or WALK IN MY SHOES or IDAHO IS DIFFERENT and proceeds to poke at people the exact same way he's claiming they a

  9. Yeah, I’d definitely leave early if the commute is that crazy. I take it you’d be moving closer if you do get the job? No, but only because Etsy is inundated with them. I’ve actually been sewing myself masks for my new job like crazy this week. I can certainly make up a few and list them if you want.

  11. I had sex with Satan last night It was very ritualistic and involved lines of dialog like “do we really need this many demons? They’re killing the mood.” Don’t listen to Ghost before bed, kids.

  13. What’s the most obvious scam some idiot tried to pull on you? Some guy connected with me on LinkedIn today, and when he saw me get online to check a notification, he starts a chat. He starts with “I know you, right?” Nope. He then tells me that he invested in bitcoin (HA HAHA HAHAHAHA what is this, 2015?), and it hasn’t paid out yet, and his wife is sick, and can I just loan him some money? He’ll pay me back on the third. He’s only asking me because I’m a woman” (what is that supposed to mean, anyway?). This is after this guy looked at my profile, and apparently didn’t notice I have

  14. If this were a normal election I’d say Biden would win with +/- 330 EVs and the Democrats would retake the Senate. But with the guaranteed lawsuits and claims of fraud and ratfucking and voter suppression... I just don’t know anything anymore.

  17. The new one around here is automated phonecalls from the dept of water and power. It's a total covid scam. Knowing people are probably behind on their bill, the recording sounds pretty legit and it gives you an 800 number to call to address your overdue bill. It's done well enough that I thought the call was real. But because I hate talking to people, I went online first and checked my account. Totally paid up in full, next bill hadn't even been issued. Googled the number, and and saw that it was a scam. Apparently you call anf give up your account number, they can then steal whatever cr

  19. Not my fb page. It's different, you'd like it. I do this really cool thing on there where when I go out to eat, I take a picture of my food. I even do it when I cook at home, too. Super cool. When I'm at the pool, I like to take a picture of my legs, with the pool in the background. Oh then when I want to be extra thoughtful, I do this thing where I post about paying it forward, making a difference because I paid for the frappuccino in the car behind me at Starbucks.

  20. I believe that Marc has had more success in convincing Trump voters than most people here. People will trust and listen to someone who is part of their in group. I've managed to get some Trump voters to consider voting third party, or change their opinion on certain stances, because I'm part of their in group, even if I'm not a Trump supporter. But I'm not on social media and I don't broadcast my opinions a lot, rather focusing on individual issues.

  21. Marc, I get it. It's a thing like a flex or something. You have to do it. But honestly we're all friends now posting on this site, so being mean or disparaging like that doesn't help. Yes, it's the internet but come on. Also this highlights one hundred percent why I think we're never going to get a Trump voter to change his mind and see how bad a president he is. It's the unwillingness to consider the other person and their point of view. Not everyone can live where you live and you probably don't want more people moving into your own private world. But helping others out and doing good by the

  24. After a long chat with my wife, spurred by this thread, I’ve found the courage? No. Gumption? Yeah, works. Anyway I have found the gumption to start trimming away my Facebook friends list. With a few doubles dropped, one or two people in jail (apparently) dropped, and the rest being Trumpets which got dropped, I trimmed down to 70 friends. I never had much more than that, but now I have to figure out which single Trumpet family member to drop so I can giggle every time I see my friends list number.

  27. I appreciate your experience. I’m on mood stabilizers, which is probably the main reason I’m not suicidal right now (and I’m really not). It does help to know I’m not alone. A woman jut suddenly quit, despite her intention to stay 5 more years to retirement. She also reported to the same supervisor, and I wonder if she left for the same reason. She definitely had more freedom to quit, because she was basically just working so they could finish paying their mortgage quicker and then join her husband in early retirement I’m especially frustrated because under my last supervisor,

I'm repeatedly telling him he's wrong, because statistics are only relevant when they're relevant, and this is a completely different situation.

  38. Trimming Friends lists opened up a whole new world of things for me. I just spent a lazy hour and a half scrolling through my Facebook wall all the way to January 2015, it was so cool to see silly old photos and silly stories about my kids. As I did this I cleansed my wall of President He Who Shall Not Be Named. ;-) Surprisingly it was only about 40+ posts. Man, it’s probably a good thing that I can’t time travel.

  40. "I know several Trump supporters, and even more people who don’t support him but will vote for him because of single issues, most notably abortion. " This makes me SO SAD, because the issue regarding abortion is not and has never been elective abortion vs. no abortions, it's 'who gets to tell whom if they can have an abortion or not; women and their doctors or the old white guys in DC?'

I brought it up in the Job Hunting thread, but I think starting a new thread is better to keep from hijacking it entirely. The past year and a half has been super shitty for me. I was laid up for most of a year with a rare stomach issue that kept me vomiting and in constant pain to the point that I was getting injections of powerful narcotics on a regular basis. Then when I finally got back to work, I was reporting to a new boss who is terrible. Fortunately there was a new opening in a
