On 'Maybe You Have a Rich Husband?'

@Markovaa I agree that that pay was not unreasonable in that it was very much in line with what other non-profit jobs would have offered. What concerned me in particular was the lack of uncertainty around whether/how I would supplement my income - and the fear that it would make it very difficult for me to keep another job! Also, as I wrote, I'm pretty change averse. The possibility of ending up with only a part-time job, with no benefits and increased expenses, was too daunting for me.

@ronswansonluva Yeah, I believe it. That's dispiriting. And good sleuthing - it was indeed in Marin!

On 'Don't Eat My Oatmeal': Working With Colleagues Who Don't Like You

That's both simpler (because there's something measurable to point to and provide specific feedback about) and more complicated (because it's affecting the business directly). Do you and this person share a supervisor?
