1. What is one thing that worries you right now?

2. Does the weather by you think it is fall/winter/spring or summer?

3. How is your calendar for October? Slow, medium, busy?

PKA, this discussion has long since stopped being anything other the Thardy, Jamblessed, and Morty spewing venom at people they despise for no good reason. It's sometimes entertaining to see what doozy they will come with next, but honestly, tonight it's so desperate "A work-study student could do Sav's job! Bord hates public Schools! Hooligan is a thief!" It's not creative or clever or even entertaining. I'm actually embarrassed for them.

Wait a minute...you guys are friends, you know her salary and you don't know how large her company is?  Where are you worked that you have been involved in hiring project managers?  You really flip flop from being a sahm and claiming to know a lot about the current working world....makes one wonder, which is the truth and which is more of your fiction.

Bord, yes I agree, very desperate.  I do feel a bit for the wohm being thrown under the bus by the those who claim to "sahm", so much so that she has been forced to claim that she only takes one break a day during lunch, not even stopping to use the restroom on most days!  It's quite desperate really.

Very well said.

Jams? How do you justify your inordinate time here? Parenting, working, exercising, and studying? How?

I used to take you as a fair impartial debater, You're smart and you really used to rise above the attacks on this board, But more and more your comments come across catty and child like, Why?  Are you ok?

I'm wasting time when I post here, Yes.  Is that what you're asking?

You waste time here? Really? If  there is no conversational value. I would move on.

I love PKA (though she annoys me at time ;-), Bord, Marla, SavCal, Bea, Jessica, Empty, and Rolls (sorry there may be more), They are smart women with insights, and I may learn something and be challenged in my beliefs. Also I will be challenged witth you, Morty, and Thardy on what the current modern workplace needs to counter by misinformation.
