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

@ledamarritz They've shared my discontent with this person's supervisor and now I'm waiting to see any measurable change. I'm just now collecting data about the amount of times I handle her duties. It's something quite silly but really interrupts my day and could potentially be seen as petty. I am an analyst and they hired a receptionist to answer the door. I was expressly told that this was not my job to greet guests. If this person is never at their desk to do so, it falls on me because I can't ignore the person standing in the entryway after I've made eye contact with them. If i'm getting up 6x a day, it interrupts my productivity on tasks that require my long focus.

What about disliking someone who isn't doing any work? How do you get over their incompetence when it directly affects you? Harumph.

On Is There a Class Component to Catcalls

I am glad people are pointing out the POC aspect. You get more thrown at you when there's more ammunition. Ni hao Kai Lan? Made up Asian sounding words? I've heard 'em all.

@fletchasketch Yeah but is your story being told? That's my point, they're not.

@Mike Dang I feel like the ratio of Mike Dang-type stories are like 15% to 85% like the one above. ETA: The article title seems misleading. There's not much how.

Are there any stories of being on your own financially, no help, student loan debt, and still making it out alive? Bueller? I agree with pengu1n to say that maybe we're only reading about a certain type of story, one that's not "my parents bought me this" but "my parents heavily helped me." I don't want to begrudge people their station in life but how far off base are we from the "NYT version of the Hunt?"

On Fall Haul

I BOUGHT THREE PAIRS OF SHOES LAST WEEK. NO REGRETS! One of the pairs were Derek Lam booties that were at a steep discount from $895 to $200. I am in love.

On Happy Monday. Are You Richer Than The Average Millennial?

I think the credit card debt thing is due to the fact that it is much harder to get a credit card now than say, ten years ago.
