    No, I had not decided not to rent from her. We would have given the place a second look, giving it and her the benefit of the doubt that it would have been cleaned up. I think she was somewhat...

    I do feel a simple one-line email: "Hey, the place is ready if you want to see it again"
    would have been considerate and appropriate.

    My words to her exactly: I realize this is a busy time of year, and you are under stress with your family situation and with work. We’re not trying to rush you. But when you feel the house is...

    Donating two books today. Books are always hard for me to get rid of. I love them so much!

    But one of these in particular, I opened it up and realized I hadn't looked at it in YEARS, and there's...

    I did buy a car from a friend, once. It was a good price, but I swear he let everything go before selling it to us. He's dead now...
    But not because of us. LOL

    Update on friend's house

    Some of you may remember this post: http://www.simplelivingforum.net/showthread.php?15602-Animal-smells

    Before that, there was one called "Would you rent from a friend?" If you skip the last...

    Oh, I gave them the "crap" email address. And no texts. I don't even have a smartphone so I don't text a lot.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Yes, there is an employee handbook. However, all it talks about re: vacation is how much you earn, the use-it-or-lose-it policy, and what happens when you leave employment at the college.

    Thanks, yes, this is the job. Thankfully the co-worker got moved to another position. Though I have heard that he will be in the same room with the rest of my department when we are temporarily...

    I've been told by more than one person that this 4-8 weeks time frame is bullcrap. I don't know who owns the transformer, the campus or the power company. It is possible that it's the campus, and if...

    I cannot work in the summer heat w/o AC. I literally feel sick to my stomach on days when there is high humidity and heat combined. I believe there are laws regarding heat and A/C, i.e. providing...

    There is a poster in the break room--don't know if that's the one you're referring to, but I'll check it out. It's a private institution.

    I am always looking for another job, particularly on...

    They are saying 4-8 weeks. My understanding is that it takes nowhere near that long to replace a transformer, even if it's underground.

    I get the feeling we're not being told the whole story here.

    iris lilies, you are probably correct about the situation and the employees. Not to divert from my own thread, but this situation can be both good and bad. Good because we all have jobs. Bad because...

    It's not that I think vacation is bad. It's that I don't have the vacation time to take. In my state, if you get laid off, you can collect unemployment compensation. It's just an option; perhaps I am...
  19. Building shutting down at work (and can they do this?)

    First I will ask: Does anyone on this board work for OSHA or know about employment laws?

    Williamsmith, you may be right about the workforce thing. I have noticed that after 5 p.m., Facebook kind of shuts down. But boy is it humming during the day!
