Going through IVF cycle now. Every ultrasound session costs about $800-$900 each. My firm insurance covers like $90. I need to pay the rest out of pocket. Does this sound normal? Thank you!
Customer : you should be getting on your hands and knees like a dog to beg for my business
Manager : sorry for my front desk upsetting you well comp your 90 minute session
Me : gets coached for not breaking policy and giving the lady a massage that’s positive for covid so I told her to rebook
While most teachers are protected by teacher unions, I feel my voice hasn’t been heard at all with my concerns of going back to school next week. Our diocese has decided on full return 5 days/ week for all 42 schools despite a recent increase in COVID in our communities. Every other school that I know of in my state is either choosing remote learning to start the year or a hybrid approach, yet that was not an option for us. Are other Catholic schools I. The same boat? Stay safe!
Any suggestions on how to make a partner who has traditionally been required to spend 30% of their time marketing and 70% billing accountable for their time and efforts spent marketing. I feel during Covid this is becoming increasingly more challenging.

How do you all deal with entitled friends? I feel like most of my life I’ve been surrounded by people who feel extremely entitled to my energy that it became second nature. Now having gone through therapy, having other healthy relationships, I’m starting to peel back from these friendships and/or create boundaries.
I miss her 🥺
I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?

My fiancé will NOT stop talking about her ex. After I found out they were texting arguing she justified it by saying it was about the dogs and not them. Even though Her social media is full of his pics. She still sends him $50 a month for dog food, still goes to work right by his place and suspiciously needs keys. I try to bring it up and I get dismantled for being too mean and making “false accusations.” How much more obvious can it be?

I’m rewatching the Golden Girls on Hulu. This show is lit. I can remember being a little kid watching it with my mom. Good times. And Bea Arthur taught me everything I know about biting sarcasm. That’s it. That’s my Ted Talk.
