    1. Because it is expensive and not everyone can afford a car with it.
    2. Because some of us are driving perfectly good cars built before the tech was readily available.

    I'm sure at some point...

    I don't like to drive. It's okay for short trips and to get to work.

    But the only decent way to get to my brother's house, 450 miles away, is to drive. The bus take 24 hours, the train gets in at...

    One place I worked let you accumulate sick days. But we had only three sick days a year. If you didn't use them, you could let them roll over to the next year. I think they topped off at 10 sick...

    Most managers don't want to hear the gory details of why you aren't coming in. A simple, "I'm not feeling very well today and I'm staying home," should be enough.

    But I've had employees who...

    I use the paper towels as a sort of liner for the rag that does the bulk of the clean up.

    Actually, I find this to be an interesting question.

    If you have the plastic bags, you have a few choices as to what to do with them. Recycle, reuse or toss.

    Clearly, just tossing them is the...

    Could the swimsuit be mended? Would the boots still be okay on a dry day, so you could wear them a few more months until they are worn out?

    If not, then could they be disassembled and the parts...

    It's not perfect, I'll grant you. But it...

    I'm not so sure it would be possible to self-quarantine easily in most of the US.

    I'm single, live alone. So the family/roommate problem wouldn't affect me. But let's say I'm a doctor (I'm not,...

    Yes, leave your personal needs out of the meeting.

    It might help if you have everyone in the committee identify what they think worked for the day camp and what didn't work. Then you will all...

    Coming at your problem from a purely business point of view, why can't you (or someone with the authority), just tell staff that they will be working on a given date? If that's not part of their job...

    We usually have a thread somewhere about when you make the decision to finally turn the heat on as the days get colder.
