I've never worked for a union. I get my work week screwed with the same way that a lot of people I know do: Being salaried. An extra hour a day is standard, I don't even notice that anymore. I get pretty salty when I hit 40 hours on a Wednesday, which happens pretty much the last week of every month.
@Josh Michtom@facebook You missed the great signs when you enter Maine on the 95. 1. The way life should be. 2. If your business was in Maine you'd be home by now. The second one is such an excellent lie (as if there wasn't 10+ hours of driving north you could still have, even if you worked there) that it made me laugh every time.
@therealjaygatsby I've been making an effort to eat less meat but it's more related to water usage guilt than price. My inner tree hugger that killed the lawn felt bad about how much water it takes to produce a pound of meat.
Wasn't the lime shortage mostly due to cartel actions in mexico? I haven't noticed much produce price change, but in the summer we do a lot of trades with friends and neighbors. That makes it sound like I live in the country, but most people around here have fruit trees and way more tomatoes and squash than they know what to do with. My grocery bill has gone up a touch, but part of that is getting out of the habit of eating out so much so it's a net savings.
@laluchita They never told how it really worked? That's some bullshit.
@HelloTheFuture So the correct answer is have a fist fight? I'm totally in.
@erinep I'd like to see that, as long as it doesn't involve watching a movie staring Ahrnold.
@Theestablishment That is like 100% contrary to how I have to give my reviews. We have a scale of 1-5 to rate people on. I am not allowed even for a second to give anyone a 5. I'm really not allowed to give out 4's much either. You get rated on 12 different categories and if anyone has more than five 4's I'm in trouble. Of course if anyone has a 1 or a 2 they're on the path to getting fired. My husband's (different company) reviews are the same. He's not allowed to give out the top score. The feeling from both of our evil overlords is that if you get the highest score you have nothing to reach for.
@erinep Dammit. Men in all those other countries give birth?
On a real note what would it take to get subsidized child care in this country?
