Employer reached out after 2.5 months of my initial application. I am still interested and unemployed, so I really this works out! Fingers crossed!

Tired of hearing all my co-workers whining about them not receiving their W-2s yet. Imagine being that broke and needing your refund so soon. Not in my world.

No. I cannot email your and your husband and your son's W2s to you. WTF? Call your EMPLOYER. I don't know who you are. I'm not emailing you jack shit.

In response to a confession. I had a job afew years ago like this, managing a team of 5. It was 9-5, but there was just way too much to be done, so I was often there until 6, 7 and even 8:30. The office head would often pop in on his way home and ask why I was still there. I've always been the kind of person to not leave until all the work is done, but there were times I'd have to get home, so I'd just do more work at night. And on weekends. And the team members took advantage of my constant availability but would lose it if I made a mistake - which was inevitable considering the workload. I still kick myself for allowing it to happen, because I worked myself to a near-breakdown. And for what? I wasn't respected, nor was I compensated for the extra time because I was salaried. Never again.

In response to a confession. Former teacher and mom of 2 high schoolers here. I'm in Texas. Our governor, who already champions some of the lowest school funding in the US, thinks everything is just fine and evryone should be in school. He has ruled that he will not find ANY virtual learning this year, provide no PPE for teachers or students, has fought mask mandates by issuing executive orders forbidding them, and will not issue any calendar variances for schools that close due to COVID. Schools are having kids sit in the auditorium all day because there are no teachers. Buses are running an hour late in our district because no drivers. My kids' school had 51 new COVID cases reported just yesterday (that they know about). I feel you. There's a reason I left teaching. Those that stay and fight for our kids are the true heroes. It's not the districts here. The state is basically forcing them to stay open.

The staff at my school voted to do a sick-out action in support of students' demands for safety. What I wish people knew: This doesn't feel like a day off. It's actually stressful. The test positivity rate at my school is 15%. The student organizers are demanding KN95 masks for students, more testing, and outdoor lunch areas. If the students don't feel safe, it isn't safe, and I stand with them. My heart has been in my throat all day though.

Does anyone else have any idea how it feels to be given more work than you can handle, and then venomously hate yourself for not being able to do it all? Especially because it's very detailed and HAS to be right, and it HAS to be done within the deadline. And I can't do it all. I certainly can't do it all make sure it's 100% perfect and correct. And I'd almost rather kill myself than not be able to do my job. Then there's my husband at home calling and wondering when I'm gonna be home. Then there's my kids who want me to babysit my DGD on the weekend when I really should be working. I hate this. I hate me.

Would it bother you if you found out that a person who works at your tax office and sees all your personal financial information was dumb enough to fall hook line and sinker for an email scam to the tune of 30k, complete with driving to their bank and providing information to the scammer via cellphone WHILE at their bank? (thankfully the bank manager was cued in that something weird was going on and prevented the 30K transfer from actually finalizing)

In response to a confession. When I worked in nursing I had a patient grab my ponytail and slam my head repeatedly against his chair tray. He was about 50, a big dude and a veteran, and had advanced Huntington's. He was in a high chair type restraint because he was non-ambulatory but kept trying to get up and walk around. I leaned in to talk to him and he lunged at me, grabbed my ponytail, slammed my head into the tray three or four times and then threw me across the hall where I slammed into a wall and fell into a heap. FROM HIS CHAIR. It was nuts and very scary. Your post brought the whole incident back in full force. *shudder*
