I have been working in HR since 2004. I have a bachelor's degree but it is not in HR, it's in a medical/technical field. My entire career in HR has been on the job training and I have worked besides people with HR degrees doing the same things they do. What extra skills do you think your HR degree gives you that you wouldn't have without the degree?
Does anyone know someone who was placed on a pip who then found a way to get on medical leave so could apply to jobs while still employed? (Idea being that you greatly extend your opportunity to look for jobs while still being able to say you’re at current firm. Example: Person gets 1 month pip, gets medical leave, then is able to look for new jobs for many months rather than 1 month. If you don’t know anyone, any opinions on how this could work?
Seeking Advice: I thought I could save on taxes and enrolled for a HDHP medical insurance plan for the first time this year, and BHAM - had to schedule an appointment with my GP this Monday for a sports related injury (bummer). Will I have to use my HSA card upfront or will the medical bill be sent later? Also can I bring it up with the hospital folks about the HDHP plan and ask for a discount - does that ever work? Thanks in advance.
I get so sick of working with men who don't do their jobs, try to make you deal with issues they own. Ugh! I finally set boundaries with a coworker and was met with an interesting combination of condescension and cluelessness. "Feel free to check out after you report the issue"....Um, I'd love to, but you're refusing to call them and they keep blowing up my phone.
Does anyone have trouble getting their SO to be more cleanly? My SO and I moved in together 1 ur ago and I feel like I’m constantly reminding him to do certain chores or pick up I after himself. I’m nice about it but it’s exhausting and a lot of the time he gets defensive or annoyed when I ask. I don’t have high expectations, just doing dishes as they pile and not pleasing clothes on the floor, putting dishes in the sick when you’re done etc. Anyone else had this problem?

My sister and I are 29 and 31, respectively. I’m struggling with something that has irked me our entire lives. My parents pay for things like her dog’s medical bills, vacations and moving expenses. They always want to help. The problem is they’ve never offered to pay for those things for me, and I’ve never asked because I’m a fully grown adult and don’t want them to spend their retirement on us. She has savings and isn’t struggling financially. Why does this bother me so much?

Dropping this in a few bowls, sorry if you see it twice. I'm transitioning from teaching 8th grade mathematics at a public school to teaching a 7/8 self-contained classroom at a charter school.

Thanks to everyone for your commitment and time, enjoy your summer!
