Comment on: Walsh: T Should Shut Down This Weekend If City Gets Blizzard - Massachusetts news - Boston.com
Posted 02/13/2015 10:36:56 EST
The sidewalks in my neighborhood in Quincy are not passable at all. Most were never shoveled, even a little, after the very first snow storm a couple weeks ago, and people are walking in the streets. more »

Actually, it'll take even longer than that. Took the commuter rail in this morning and we passed by Wollaston/North Quincy. Those red line tracks aren't shoveled at all, they're covered in snow still. more »

I agree that people shouldn't be judged on their appearances, but these days, it really is a professional norm to include a photo. As a professional career counselor, I advise all my clients to have more »

Posted 06/03/2013 10:16:46 EDT
Our parents didn't meet until the actual wedding. It was only after that fact that my new husband and I realized we hadn't even introduced them - we just separately pointed them all to the parents tab more »

That's flawed logic. I'm not good at doing my own make-up because I rarely wear it and it's low on my list of priorities. It's not even in the same category as cooking or balancing a checkbook, both o more »
Comment on: Will my feminist friends hate me if I change my last name after the wedding? - Expertly Engaged - Boston.com

In the States, paying a dowry is no longer standard practice and men are no longer the sole breadwinners. It's called history for a reason. If you want to talk practicality, I think people would be ea more »

My fiance's place is equal to, not better than, my place. I'm not going to do something just because it's what's people have done historically. I think if a woman wants to change her name, go for it, more »

Not necessarily. I'm getting married next month, but I'm keeping my name. Doesn't mean I love my fiance any less. We're not his and hers towels, we don't have to match!

The first amendment only protects you from the government, not private employers. Even then, there are limitations based on public welfare, such as you can't scream fire in a crowded theater. And as m more »

Privacy laws are actually not entirely a thing of the past. At least half a dozen (and growing) states have implemented laws prohibiting an employer from asking for your social media passwords (I went more »
Comment on: Can I convince him to have a kid?
Posted 10/10/2012 01:08:45 EDT
I totally agree - it's very different. Just like now people are telling me I'll change my mind about not wanting kids - I roll my eyes and point out how different it is. I was just making the point th more »

I do agree with the majority of comments saying she needs to have a direct conversation, and then decide if she can live with the results. But I wouldn't call it bait and switch, that implies delibera more »

I'm a professional career counselor, and I believe this is crossing a line. It's one thing to look people up on social media and see what info is available, it's another to demand candidates give you more »

Posted 09/01/2011 05:29:34 EDT
I can't help but take offense to some of the insulting posts towards women. I was the eldest child of parents who did split, and my mother tried to make it as easy as possible on my dad. He paid for o more »

I have to disagree with the assumption that better-behaving children are generally wealthier. Some of them are the worst offenders - they think they're entitled to everything, can do whatever they wan more »

Those of you who mentioned nonprofits paying their administrative staff "ridiculous" amounts of money, clearly don't work at a nonprofit. While of course there are some organizations that may seem inf more »

Kick*ss cupcakes has the worst cupcakes I've ever tasted. Dry and bland, not to mention overpriced. I could make myself something better from a box mix. My mother works in that area, and she and most more »

As for the citations, in MA, I'm pretty sure it's the property' owner who is subject to citation, not the renter. The mail man can stop delivering if it's not shoveled, which then affects the renters, more »

As a professional career counselor, I discourage the use of the word "test" when discussing the MBTI, Skill Scan, etc. Tools, inventories, assessments, yes. Test, no. "Test" typically implies that the more »

Unless they are a personal friend, I don't believe there's any obligation to invite coworkers. Most of my coworkers are lovely people, and I enjoy chatting with them at work and eating lunch with them more »
