I went through our finances this morning. After all the bills are paid, my paycheck leaves us about a hundred bucks for food, gas, and incidentals. Thank goodness my husband has a job too. I'm the breadwinner, and he only works part time. But without that part time job, we'd be pretty screwed. I don't think he realizes this. I should tell him.

In response to a confession. Without hearing her tone a bunch of strangers definitely aren’t going to get the same feeling from her questions that you did. It’s possible she was just making small talk and you didn’t like it, or it’s possible she was actually being bossy and you didn’t like it. But you are right, you don’t have to explain your plans or reasoning behind your request off to anyone. If there’s ever a spot to put why I’m requesting the day off I just put “for personal appointments” idk if my management is less nosey in general or realize they’d be in the wrong if they asked me anything else about it. But since I started doing that I don’t get asked either way.

In response to a confession. You say I'm being unpleasant but I felt like my supervisor was being nosey and invasive especially when we don't get to ask her what she does with her PTO. I don't like people asking me what I'm doing with my personal time off at work if I didn't say anything to them about it first. I wasn't rude to her, and never have been, and as long as I'm using time allotted to me legally I shouldn't be questioned about it.

Helpful life hack for everyone living in a northern state but especially people who live around Akron. When you know let's say Tuesday that a major snowstorm is coming Saturday, don't wait until Friday night to do your shopping. Lines at two different Walmart's were beyond ridiculous tonight.

In response to a confession. Geez, you sound real pleasant. It sounds like she was just making polite small talk, not grilling you.

I took some paid time off for 2 days through the PTO system (mostly for mental health. It's been tough for me this Jan) and my supervisor asked me what I was going to be doing, if I was going to be 'having fun'. I just looked at her and said I had some things to take care of. Um...none of your business first of all? It's paid time off, I don't have to tell you anything? Why do you want to know??

Minor peeve rant: my in laws eat late, which is fine... I learned quickly during the week that if they’re cooking I still need to make something at least for ds because they don’t usually eat till 8pm and that’s his bed time. But when they come to me at 5pm asking what ds and I want for dinner and we agree on take out... I think it’s a little fair to expect someone to leave to go get it as soon as we’ve decided what we’re having. I always offer to go, but fil I think likes the time to himself and insists on going alone 2 hours later. This also means that sometimes they come home with a full meal for us from McDonald’s at 8:30 at night... and I don’t want to seem ungrateful, so we eat the full meal of fast food after eating a full dinner and just before going to bed.

I'm trying to look for alternative sources of income, because I'm sick of my full time desk job and my life in general, but unfortunately I don't have anything greater than a high school diploma and I'm quickly learning that obtaining any type of skill set outside of an actual college is still costly. College never ever felt like it was for me. I had a hard time figuring out what to do with my life, and being chained to a desk for another 4 years repelled me from pursuing a higher education. I'm now wishing that I'd gone when I was younger because the sweet, sweet irony is, I'm still chained to a desk.

In response to a confession. Most people are shallow and that's okay. If it makes you happy and doesn't hurt anyone, do it! Do it guilt free, too!

I just got a FB message from an old (OLD old, like 30+years ago) friend telling me that I helped her in life by calling her out on her avid shoplifting. When we were maybe 14 or 15 years old. She said I made a difference and she thinks her life may have gone down a darker path without me. My God. I barely remember doing that. My little heart is warmed.
