@honey cowl No, you're right, and I'm sorry if it sounded like I PERSONALLY think it's weird -- I already wear men's deodorant on the weekends. The "masculine" scent doesn't draw attention? That is a sincere question and my only holdup.
@Tyche I agree so much with both of your comments! I can't even believe the ladies acted like this was so normal and then gave what I think is kind of awful advice (very atypical!!!).
I would not ever ever ever tell a boss I was applying for new jobs and I would move mountains to avoid them needing to talk with my current supervisor. I've never heard of that and it endangers the employment of your candidates -- how could anyone ask for that privilege??
@HelloTheFuture Listen I'll just tell you without editorializing it that I remembered this minute how "Mayday" is also an emergency call sign.
Today is the first day of the first full month of my new budget! We can do this thing, Nicole.
I have to laugh because I think it’s a lot like our relationship has been. I was always ready to commit and do the work to get what I wanted and he would always be laissez-faire about things and put stuff off. For example: “we’ll get engaged when the snow melts” (which: WHAT?!?!?). Coincidentally also-Canadian young person from the other day, this is what we fear for you.
@Mike Dang I know you're so busy, Mike, but I miss your voice here and probably others do too. THIS IS NOT LIKE MOM GUILT THOUGH, just fondness.
@j a y I am a writer and editor and I work in publishing. I've written for the Billfold, actually, on top of having read the site since its inception. So it's my purview for a handful of different reasons, but it's just as much your purview, too!
@pain The "cashing whatever is handy to float my checking account" thing is a Metaphor in this case. Oof. Tough stuff.
@Stina I forgot you mentioned your ear before! (Distracted by pita.) Why did that cost so much for the piercing?
