In response to a confession. Give me a break- it is not confusing. Whitesplaining is when a white person "explains" racism to a person of color. It's like when a man explains feminism to you or tells you everything women "should do," taking over a conversation you started, speaking for you, and derailing your point, taking up all the air. Do you like that? No. I love how whenever someone even mentions this it's "divisive." LOL, who will protect the white people?!?

Whitesplainer sounds like a derogative term. Is it PC to say it? How about Blacksplainer? Or Yellow or Brownsplainer? Do we really need more divisiveness? How about Trumpsplainer? Hillarysplainer? Are those OK because they only demean political party representatives and not the color of the persons, who in this case are both white? Maybe Berniesplainer would have worked, but is that another name for Jewsplainer? So confusing.

I’m in a weird place career wise. I’m a SAHM now. When I go back to work my income will be low for two years. Basically I’ll pay for daycare plus DH travels for work so any sick kids/school breaks fall to me to handle. If I wait even 1 year, the $$ we’d pay for daycare would be about 90% less because I’d literally only need before school care. I’m hoping to find part-time in my field, but haven’t yet. My question is, what would you do? I’m on the fence. One hand I’m thinking take a job, get in the door. The other hand, I adore this time with my kids. I’m a true crazy person who loves our time together and I don’t for a second take it for granted and why pay someone when I can be there for them. (DH doesn’t care either way, he appreciates me home and also wants me to succeed in my field)

Why can't job posters put the hours in the job posting instead of springing them on you at the interview? It would have been nice to know that the job I interviewed for was 2nd and 3rd shift, alternating. All I want is a job where I work during the day, 5 days a week. Is that so much to ask?

More on sabotaging CW (SCW from now on). Boss suggested I lock up the files at nite. I did, and no more issues. Except one nite I stayed late, and was in a rush to get home. Came in the next morning, and a file was missing. Meantime, boss brought on new team members, which she and other CW were not happy with - literally said they didn't want them to join because they wanted all the leads to themselves. 2wks after one guy started, SCW went off on him - screaming that his opinion was wrong, even though he's had years of experience in that area of work. Other CW is so high strung she flips if something can't get done right away, then apologizes.Flipped bc I couldn't get something for her, when the person I needed it from was not available and not answering emails. But complained to boss about ME not getting it. I've heard no one stays in my position for long bc of "personality conflicts." You don't say...

I had my interview today for being a wastewater treatment operator. They gave me an oral test on how the plant works...I was not ready for that. I think I got most of the answers right, but hey, they probably are looking for someone who has more than just academic knowledge of how things work.

I went from salary to hourly when the law changed awhile back and was mad about it. Now we have a very demanding director who wants shit done and I'm approved for all the overtime I need to get that shit done. Without the exempt law I would've been working overtime on salary and now I'm making time and a half. Awesome! I'm​ empowered to do a lot and get paid for it. Anyone else moved from hourly to salary? What is your experience?

I kind of miss my old office. It's closer to home, and the people were nicer. But I DON'T miss the constant collections. It's Admin Day. It's Boss' Day. It's the Admin's birthday. It's the Boss' birthday. This person is pregnant, that one had a baby. And the tragedies. Just so weird for an office of ~130! So many family/spouse deaths, accidents, fires, etc., it was unreal. My new office has over 400, and there's not been one collection or tragedy in the 5 months I've been there.

I work nights and i like it for the most part. the pace is slower, i don't have to deal with a lot of annoying CWs or mgmt (it's only me and one other person at night), and I get paid more. but i think i may have to go back to days. i've been doing nights for about 3 years and i can tell it's taking a toll on my health. I've gained a lot of weight, am constantly sleep-deprived no matter how much sleep i get (daytime sleep just isn't as restorative as nighttime sleep), and it's hard to have a social life. i think it may be worth the hassle and pay cut to not feel sluggish, blah, and run down all the time.
