Imagine this: A child has three parents, either all living together or the Dad living nearby and involved: Mom, Dad, and an unrelated person (who is married to the mother) in a parent role. Can you think of any cute names to call the third parent?
Relational titles (aunt/uncle/etc) are out as they’re reserved for actual relatives (although I am fond of titles like the one Rufus Wainwright and his husband chose, Deputy Dad, it’s just a little wordy). Would you create a different special name for the parent based on gender?
I’m going to the hospital tomorrow to get some blood tests done to find out whether or not my uterus problems are caused by something that means I won’t be able to have kids or something that can be treated / doesn’t affect my fertility.
I will be so pissed if it’s something that renders me infertile. And by pissed I mean I will either kill myself or become a nun. And probably also write hate letters to my adopters and key members of my natural family.
But I’m just hoping it’s something treatable and/or that doesn’t affect fertility.
And from what money, exactly, do you think you’re going to get that £55? The £19 we’ve got for food for the next couple weeks?
What part of “just got a job that hasn’t paid me anything yet” is difficult to grasp? Pay you with what money, exactly???? Monopoly money, maybe?
I just sent them £200 (of £750) of our rent, and the energy company should have gotten my letter proposing £10/month repayment by now.
And let’s not forget all the other places we’re behind with and/or that I’m ignoring (*cough*SallieMae*cough*).
I wish an anonymous generous benefactor could pay our past due bills so that we can actually be caught up by the time I get my first full month’s worth of pay at the end of July. That would be so nice.
I just started a job as a barista two weeks ago, and I’m already not sure if I should continue. For one, it’s very difficult for me to remember so many orders, and I’m rapidly approaching the time when my company will expect me to serve more than one customer/customer group at a time. I just really don’t think I can do it, at least not all the time. When it’s quieter, maybe, and it depends on what drinks/food they order.
Secondly, I’m slow. I’m slow at cleaning, I’m slow at making drinks. Apparently I make the drinks well, and for the most part I enjoy making them, but I’m not fast. And I can already sense this is going to become a problem probably sooner rather than later.
Thirdly, the shifts are very hard for me to deal with. This is my first time working shifts. On the night shift, I clean the entire place, minus the coffee grinder and espresso machine, as the shift leader does the cashing out. Closing has us there an hour past our scheduled end time, and we’re not paid for it. I’m fairly certain it’s not possible to only work one particular shift.
Fourthly, I have another job. It’s a 9-5 type during the weekdays job but only 10 hours a week. The manager already forgets that I can’t be scheduled at a certain time on the weekend because I have church, and now I’m scheduled for a double on a Friday, which I obviously can’t do because of my other job.
I’m already exhausted and dreading going. I don’t know if I can keep it up long enough to make it to the 4-week review that I have in 1.5 weeks.
If it weren’t for the fact I’m desperate for money and drowning in bills, I probably would’ve already quit by now and gone back to looking for office jobs, which is what I truly want.
Does anyone have any advice?
