My kids were really upset with me when I told them that my job as an engineer did not mean that I drove trains for a living

Yup, and I do not fix up fancy cars for a living either. Sighhhhhh

HAHAHA, that's the best thing I've heard today.

Children are very innocent, but I would like to know what led them to think that you were a train driver.

I don’t trust that the guy I’m dating is over his first love. We’ve talked about it but it’s hard for me to believe him: he sends her birthday wishes, still hangs out with her in group settings, was very sad when he told me about her dumping him, asked her to get back together a couple weeks before we started dating, etc. Do I just move on now?

Thoughts/advice: my boyfriend and I met when I was in college at 18 and he was 23. We’ve been together 6 years. The first 3-4 years were long distance and then we moved in together in 2020. We have a 1 year old son. He told me he knew I was the one when we moved in together (4 years in) and bought my engagement ring a year ago right before I had our son but still hasn’t given it to me yet. I’m ready to leave honestly. Am I being dramatic and should keep waiting or is his head somewhere else?

Hi everyone, wanted to come back and talk about the work environment at the Washington Redskins/Football Club -- the Washington Post story was pretty jaw dropping.

I think Warren torpedoed Bloomberg's campaign due to his use of NDAs. Thoughts?
