Candy Cane Lane in Torrance

You can walk or drive! It’s a big neighborhood with houses and trees covered with lots of lights. People will sell hot chocolate and snacks on their front lawn and play Christmas music. Big event every year.

Hi! I need some help negotiating a raise. I have been working for this company for exactly 3 months now, but I was hired as an AGM. I'm not specific on what my responsibilities are as AGM.
However the GM at the time, quit 1 and a half months in. I was thrown into the role and have been handling it since.
My regional calls himself our GM but is never on site.
Was reluctant to cover my shifts when I became sick and requested time off for a few days. (4 days)
Any thoughts?

I’m a man in my early thirties. I’m in a happy relationship, but since the pandemic and my team going fully remote I’ve gotten pretty socially isolated other than my girlfriend, dogs, and some group exercise classes. Trying to put myself out there more as a holiday resolution. I signed up for some meetup groups related to hobbies/professional interests. Any other social platforms/ways to meet people in Denver folks would recommend?

Thanks, and enjoy the holiday weekend!

I am burning out. My manager forgot her password for a program and blamed me. She said: how do you dare to change my password. I just have access to her account not her personal email. To change a password you need an email and a confirmation code because I am an average person, not a hacker. If I was a hacker I would have used that skill to do something better that change her password or look into her things tbh. I cannot stand her, she is constantly attacking me and seriously ruining my life.

Sometimes I wish when you were with a partner, there was a very clear sign that the person doesn’t love you so that you know it’s time to walk away. My partner and I keep having the same problems, and when I express he’s making me feel a certain way he says he didn’t mean it like that obviously. But when i say something and explain that it’s not how I meant it he doesn’t care and proceeds to label me as an unkind person who doesn’t support/love him unconditionally. *continued in comments*

Has anyone done earthquake retrofitting for a house NEWER than 1980? I know it’s a must-do for houses OLDER than 1980. But my house was built in 1988, so it’s not required.

Several contractors provided estimates, in the $40k-$50k range, which seems like a lot of $$$.

Apparently our house has bolts but not enough and not the right kind, plus it needs joist blocking and shear paneling. All to meet codes put in place after our house was built.

Just curious if others have done this.
