Work in corporate communications and was recently offered a remote director-level job at a major company. I found it on Indeed or LinkedIn. I just happened to read the job description carefully where they mentioned they'd be open to a remote employee if it's the right person. I'm seeing this more and more often. It's the third job in about 6 months that I've come across that stated this. I think companies are more open to a role being remote if the HQ is in an undesirable location. [ Reply | More ]

All of my friends work remote. Some for big consulting - they opted out of partner track. Some attorneys, most aren't licensed now, but even the licensed contract attorney works remote (I wonder if she qualifies for disability though because she has a severe stutter). One is a technical writer for an educational software company. All of these hijacked their existing role into remote. They became linchpins and then with very little notice said I'm working remote and if you don't like it fire me. No employer fired. But all stagnanted in their careers - no promotions, no salary increases, etc. Maybe that was great 10ish years ago, but now? The COL is only increasing. Some moved to lower COL and or no income tax states. But then what? [ Reply | More ]

And nobody is trying to look like they are 19. Women do botox/fillers to not look tired and weathered out, it smooths some wrinkles and if done expertly doesn't give you a frozen face. Expertly applied moderate fillers help too and you won't look overdone or puffy. [ Reply | More ]

Try to find a 0%, no balance transfer fee and pay close attention to when the interest kicks in. Make sure you make the small payment each month or it will revert to a huge interest rate. There are too many catches to cover a bank. They prey on people this way. [ Reply | More ]

I received and discarded, so operating on little actual info. I think the product is geared toward those who carry credit card debt and feel guilty about it. The bank hopes that, by changing the form of the loan and giving some discount on interest rate, people will continue to keep the debt and feel guiltless, all the time continuing to pile up new credit card debt. Don’t sign up for unless you’ve spoken about with a financial advisor (formal or informal) or it’s part of a debt deduction plan. [ Reply | More ]

Flexibility is key. While 4-day week is good, if there is a parent teacher conference on one of the four days, what I need is flexibility to be able to leave or work from home so I can be there. Additional office or near-office based services are really helpful. My employer has in-office and near-office health services, and it has made it easier to take care of things like prescription renewals, glasses, etc.... Emergency or school-holiday child care is also key, there is always a lot of stress around those days. Finally, I have known women who stopped working when everything came together at the same time - kids, spouse, parents - and they couldn't handle it all. The ability to take a family leave sabbatical would keep those women in the workforce. [ Reply | More ]

If this were me, I would want to be seen by a dr. I would call the general office and explain. They must reserve a few appointments for sick visits, which this is. I would politely push and ask if there might be a cancellation, etc until they squeezed me in. Or ask a friend for a rec. [ Reply | More ]

OP: Yes. It's contagious. And anecdotally, I've never heard of anyone getting pneumonia outside of the hospital. I know it happens, but no one I know has ever just contracted pneumonia. Over the last 6 months, I've known 3 people and obviously, because I had it, several more have told me they recently had it, too. [ Reply | More ]

Did you get prednisone? A steroid is often needed with pneumonia. And recovery can be 6 weeks (speaking from experience). [ Reply | More ]

OP: I have prednisone but I haven't been using it. I have had the infection for 6 weeks and I'm not recovering. That's why I posted because everyone says 6 weeks to be better. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I make good money, but am very down to earth - clean my own house - don’t own anything designer - no fancy vacations - and am fit and pretty - and very grateful and happy. I want to meet other people like me. How do it do this? Is it possible? 56 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Meaning - if I meet someone fit and pretty - they have a personal trainer and Botox. If I meet someone who makes good money - they are all designer everything. If I meet someone randomly - they just complain about everything. [ Reply | More ]

Maybe you're not exposing yourself? At the bottom on the thread people recommended parts of town and weekend homes. Try it. I'd also say try a pilates studio, Orange Theory, Soul Cycle, whatever. But once you find these people, what fun do you imagine having together? Like if you wrote I love playing games I'd say join a gaming group, or reading books a book club, and so on. How much money someone makes - like $1MM - doesn't matter unless you were going to socialize in ways that required that kind of disposable income - but you're not? You're not doing fancy vacations together, you're not shopping together, and so on. And FWIW you don't sound very grateful and happy. [ Reply | More ]

And this won't be UB PC but if people in the group aren't your idea of pretty and fit then don't befriend them. Easily done. It's just like UBers obsessing over a man's height. Or scrolling past or negging profiles when online dating. Don't let UB beat you up about your vanity values because UB has them too. [ Reply | More ]

I wear some designer clothing--some that I've had for 15 years. I have a good work life balance usually. Sometimes things get too busy and I readjust. My haircuts are expensive but I don't use botox. Some of my good friends may do more or less of these things. But none are shallow or vapid or complainers. Maybe you need to form deeper friendships? [ Reply | More ]

For a person who hates complainers and people who are "annoying" op seems to complain a lot and is really annoying. I'm "fit and pretty" but I probably wouldn't use those words when looking for friends who relate. I wouldn't want to hang out with op. [ Reply | More ]

I have a housekeeper once a week because I’m a single mom. I work our a ton because I love it and it helps me stay mentally balanced. I buy a pair of designer shoes every couple of years because I think they are really cute and they are comfortable and will last for many years. I like to travel to places I’ve never been and if the exchange rate is in my favor I’ll stay somewhere nice.. I’m pretty but I get Botox ever now and again for some lines in between my brows that I hate. My kids go to public school and I live in a small apartment and I go to church and I volunteer when I can. Sounds like I have too many no’s for you. Oh and I make good money. [ Reply | More ]
