Comment on: 'Americans do not always use their allotted paid vacation days. Why is that so? And is it a good thing?'
Posted 06/18/2012 06:37:35 EDT
As someone else mentioned, I have a bucket of PTO. That seems to be the way a lot of places do it now. That's for sick days, days I need to go do stupid stuff like renew my license and vacation. This more »

Noooo! What I am going to do with that FM tuner thing in my car's dashboard now? Turn it off, I guess. I hope the original staff take the whole thing online somewhere. I already stream the station mos more »
Comment on: He's ruined our finances

Step 1: Change the locks. Step 2: Restraining order if needed. Step 3: Lawyer. This situation is awful. You need to get out of it for you and your child. Since you do have a child, I suggest you try a more »

It's not just the South Shore. I live north of the city and we've had a rash of break ins, including right next door to me. The police think it's a small group driving around and ringing doorbells on more »

chiclet, I am in the same boat. FHA load that no one will touch with a ten foot pole. I am underwater because my property value keeps going down. We can make our payments no problem. Our home is modes more »
Comment on: 'MBTA shutdown leaves many stranded'
Posted 08/29/2011 08:53:21 EDT
I actually agree with the T did, for once. They were expecting to have debris, power and possibly flooding issues to deal with, so they shut the service down to focus on that instead of dealing with p more »
Comment on: 'Can casual get too casual at work?'
Posted 07/21/2011 12:06:21 EDT
I understand the need for an office dress code. But I also expect an employer to understand that if they choose to place their office in the city and I have to take the T to get there, that I am not s more »
Comment on: The%20savviest%20sellers%3F%20Homeowners%20who%20bought%20during%20the%20bubble
Posted 07/21/2011 10:59:19 EDT
I think those who bought during that time (me in 2005) know they paid too much for their homes and are willing to price more realistically when selling now. I knew at the time that we were paying way more »
Comment on: Should I have ended the engagement?
Posted 07/21/2011 09:56:35 EDT
Sounds like you did the right thing. I am a crazy do everything right now type, and my husband is much more laid back. Sometimes this is annoying, but mostly it gives our lives a yin/yang quality that more »

If anything, given the need for doctors and the implication that women are great primary care doctors,make it easier for women doctors to work part time, not harder. More part time doctors = more doct more »

I know people like to rag on the Globe in these forums sometimes, but excellent work bringing this to light so there is no choice for the authorities but to investigate and actually do something about more »

Sad that people have no qualms using a program meant for severely disabled kids. I have a cousin who gets some help from this program. She has severe down syndrome and can only walk with much assistan more »

Posted 07/07/2011 04:46:39 EDT
I think the monarchy is conservative, and this is her nod to that, much like her wedding dress was stylish yet conservative (covered arms). Bare legs are not conservative, even though they are the tre more »
Comment on: 'Lobbyist’
Posted 06/21/2011 10:08:53 EDT
This is why we need to do away with pensions for public sector workers. Sorry to everyone who works really hard and deserves it, but there's too much abuse. This guy was a no show for 5 years? Disgust more »
Comment on: His family won't accept me
Posted 06/20/2011 09:28:25 EDT
I have the same issue with two totally different families between mine and my in-laws. Mine is the quiet formal one, so my husband's boisterous, affectionate family was overwhelming to me at first. So more »

My husband is the hockey fan in our house, but I've been watching all season and think I've picked up a few things. What I noticed in this final series is that the Bruins played hard and with class. V more »

It's too bad this guy will probably get squashed like a bug for what he's doing, but that's just how the church works. Hide the pedophiles and keep them around, but give the progressive guys the boot. more »
Comment on: 'Aging T cars need immediate $100m upgrade'
Posted 06/10/2011 10:02:17 EDT
The MBTA needs to go private or semi-private, then it can be overhauled without the state getting in a bunch of trouble. I am back using the MBTA (orange line) after 10 years away and it is so much wo more »

Posted 06/08/2011 03:18:00 EDT
I don't doubt that some of the horrible crap we put around and in our bodies could be influencing all kinds of issues. But I think it would have to be an in utero thing, because Autism is a developmen more »

Posted 06/08/2011 02:04:48 EDT
I've been using BostonBusMap for Android, it seems pretty spot on. Occasionally I have that same thing of buses just disappearing, but overall it's been a huge time saver. Nothing worse than standing more »

Posted 05/23/2011 10:45:45 EDT
EnjoyEverySandwich, sounds like you have a cat that was not socialized at all (or correctly). This cat sounds similar to my ferals. Cats that don't meow are a good clue that they are not socialized. M more »

Having temped, I can say that sometimes it throws your schedule way off. Your new temp job may have double the commute of your last temp job, so suddenly you don't have time to run errands after work more »

I definitely use Groupon or EverSave offers to try new places that I didn't know about before. So far, every Groupon or EverSave that I have used has resulted in either a return visit or a plan to ret more »

Posted 01/28/2011 02:22:03 EST
No cable in my place, and I don't miss it. We use Hulu and hook the laptop up to watch movies downloaded from Netflix or iTunes. My husband misses his Bruins and Celtics, though. When the games are on more »
Comment on: 'Driven by tough economy, many stop and swap'
Posted 01/26/2011 09:52:13 EST
I love this idea. In the past year I've had a job change (from corporate to more casual) and a clothing size change, so my wardrobe is seriously lacking for things I can wear to work, while many cloth more »
