@annecara Dude good luck. That is the absolute worst. I had a similar situation and my (previous) boss' boss ended up handling it crazy poorly and I had to make it a THING with HR. Document everything, with dates and if anyone is around. At the very least it makes everyone take you seriously.
@seakelps Fair point. Maybe a line from the article on the placebo effect?
I volunteer to be your control group.
@Allison I think that's just a sign of being old enough that your age doesn't matter. Although you're right I spent the entire year I was 29 telling people I was 30 because I thought 29 sounded like I was lying.
My parents both did this as long as they could get away with it AND when they were in their late 50's started asking for the AARP/Senior discount. They feel it's ok to lie to corporations. It's never come up for me as an adult because I don't have kids, but I hate lying because you have to remember what you said when you lie and if you just tell the truth you dont' have to remember anything - it's true.
@Renleigh Really? What a bummer, that ride is still super fun. Is that for Land and World?
@Punk-assBookJockey It's pretty awesome, except that at least where I work you end up coming in on a lot of off Fridays.
I would gladly chain myself to the Jungle Cruise to stop it from getting taken out. On the other hand they can have the tiki-room, that place is where nightmares are born.
First let me say that it's insane that your neighbors get to see your debt to income ratio. Do you get to see all of theirs in return? Second, we totally lost 8 offers (way over asking price) to all cash bidders and only ended up getting a house in the end because the seller thought that my husband looked like her grandson. So it does totally happen sometimes.
@callmeprufrock oops, false hope. There was.
