Re: San Francisco

Hey, you were in my old stomping grounds! I should get myself there soon.

Re: Proving Education

And to answer the original question - the last company I worked for (2010) required all sorts of checking. They didn't want to contact my college (in the UK) for a degree proof so they asked me for a copy of my degree - which I don't have. [more]

Re: Proving Education

Yes - every job we fill that has a mandatory college degree requirement requires an official raised seal sent directly to the personnel specialists from the school registrar. No official copy, no hire.

Re: When you were 15...

I tell you what the impact was on myself. Cabinsmama, who worked with social services, IIRC, tells you the impacts she has seen on others.

And yet...

Re: When you were 15...

I'm trying to stay out of this (and failing) but I don't think you are talking about the same thing re: power dynamics. What the other poster meant, I think, is that there's an inherent power difference between children and adults, teachers and [more]

Re: When you were 15...

It's not a simple issue, obviously.

In my mind, it IS a simple issue.

A little late to this, but...

I had a sexual relationship with my boss when I was 19. A full adult. He was 45. More than twice my age. I was not pretty or popular, and it felt good at that time.

Years later, I realised how much that [more]

Re: Dumping a Fiance'

So why didn't he? Was he feeling too pressured to "get married" that it overcame this judgment he had made about himself?

And what about you? Did you understand that this was a risk with him? And if not --- was it something you

Re: Dumping a Fiance'

You know, SP, that's an amazing amount of self-awareness.

My ex said the something similar to me as we were getting divorced - that he should have realised that marriage was not for him - he was not willing or able to put in the work to stay [more]

Re: An Open Letter

I was told by a friend that it was supposed to stand for Nazarene - to show solidarity with the Christians being persecuted in Mosul.

I don't have a FB page, but I use Twitter for work, and I've seen it there as well.

Re: OT: text speak

You're right, I think it is all about context. In the context of these boards, or in work email (or actually any email), it should be almost verboten.

Let me guess, you were born before 1980.

Not the person you were replying to, but I was born before 1980, as, I would presume to guess, were the majority of the regulars on this board.

Thank you for all the advice and suggestions.

Metrochick is right - the two groups do have separate target markets. One has more money though, and there is the desire to tap into it, maybe peel off some of the more progressive [more]

OT: Non-profit ethics

I don't know if this is the correct board, but it is well-travelled, so I will risk it.

I do some work on occasion with a non-profit here in town. In one of the richer suburbs of Houston, there is another non-profit that concentrates on the [more]
