I'm in fucking Ogden, which may be a crap commute... but I do have a spare room, if you can live with cats (it is their room.... fuckers fight with my other cats if I don't put them away at night). Warning, every person who has stayed in that room for more than one night has become a Black Rock Ranger. I'm not kidding.
Yeah that would be a bit of a fucking commute. The Job is in Sandy. Something to consider though. Thanks for the offer. And becoming a Black Rock Ranger wouldn't be so bad. :D

Well a little fucking progress was made. Took the seats out and got some 3" foam padding to lay in the floor of the Windstar. Haven't figured out what we are going to do with the cat though. Anybody got any fucking experience with keeping a cat in a car?

I second AnitM on that. It could get way too fucking hot in the daytime. Foster home sounds like an idea, if you can find someone in the area. Box, you said "we". Is it more than just you? Are there shelters in the area that you could stay at for a time while you find another place? There's no shame in that.

fuck. hope it works out BB, don't try to eat the whole elephant with one bite. have to break things down to doable portions. Something I don't manage well I'll admit. when the majority of things seem shitty, I have to transform the non shitty bits to shit to maintain consistency. Got huge HR drama at work, abusive hostile work environment stuff... I have to make a move to either stop doing what I'm doing, or get them to examine the situation. After crying in my car for an hour on Thursday, I figured it was time to escalate my complaint. Shit around my mother's health colors all my world now, and I'm losing perspective. I have documented instances of insubordinate behavior by my subordinates, and they just push me over the edge any time I try to verify or direct work performance. I have one employee who tells me to stop talking to him, or angrily asks me why I'm not doing something or other on a weekly basis, it offends his pride to be told what to do, or asked to be accountable, and he's retaliating by blowing me off and not doing his work. It's part of my job, and his, but it's ridiculous how entitled he feels to just do his own thing and since he draws me into angry confrontation, It becomes my fault. I feel like I'm fucking on the edge of losing my job or my mind. It's hammer time all day long.

I will bonk him on the head with my black cat flashlight.

If your supervisor doesn't respond to your complaint, then what about their supervisor? Do you have any disciplinary authority over this person or are you just the go between for the fucking HR department. I admit I don't' have a deep knowledge of HR type situations because I've never worked in a place that was structured that way, but I like to think that I have a decent ability to read a situation and assess it.

Thanks guys!!! I knew that flashlight was multipurpose. It's escalated out of the store to the area HR, since I used the term hostile work environment. I've been battling this individual with no relief at store level, multiple "talks" with management, where he is basically given a forum to berate me, which he calls, "expressing his opinion." umm, three years now. All managers above me say that it is unbelievable how he speaks to me, but they are so fucking afraid of legal actions, the only way you can actually fire someone is if they steal something. They will not write him up no matter how many instances I've brought to them, well documented work lists, work expectations etc. I try not to speak to him without another manager present, and still it continues. He has a mentor relationship with the store manager. but well, fuck. another chapter of applying my head vigorously to the wall cannot be written. I'm hoping I can either get him transferred out of my dept. or I'll go for another dept. They won't fire him. They might fire me.

HR departments are the bastard child of "corporate responsibility" towards the employees. (There's a fucking oxymoron for you.) It is a way for them to distance themselves from what they do to their employees. There should be some kind of guidelines or rulebook that details how this should be handled. Most commonly, with large corporations. The way it most often works is that when the supervisor identifies a deficiency he writes it up and the calls in the employee. The supervisor the goes over the problem as it is stated in the document and outlines what improvements he feels need to be made. The employee (having read and signed the guidelines when he was hired) is then required to sign a statement that he has read it and it has been explained and discussed with him. This signature does not mean that he agrees to the contents, just that he has read it and it has been discussed with him. A place its provided for the employee to write his version, story and opinion etc. Failure to sign this statement usually means he will be suspended without pay until the issue is resolved by arbitration. :roll: The document is then put in his personal file in HR. There may or may not be an HR person there for the first 2 incidents but there is usually someone there for the 3rd incident and always for the final 4th incident where the employee may be fired. Although this procedure can be abused by bad supervisors, it also provides a way to get rid of bad employees.

Check and see what, if any, guidelines are in place and then point them out (nicely) to the people who should be using them.

Fuck. why does everything have to happen at once. My daughter cut her thumb two weeks ago. Badly. Doctor says that the nerve is cut and that the tendon is damaged and surgery is needed for repair. That will take place Thursday this week. Fortunately she is covered by insurance taken out by my exes new hubby. Probably only pay 80% so I will have to make a deal to pay the balance. Hope they don't refuse to do the surgery because I can't pay huge monthly payments on the balance. After paying child support I do not have enough to get an apartment. Well I could get a fucking 1 bedroom or studio but I then could not drive to work. Or eat any food. Or pay any utilities. oh well... sigh.

Ask them to negotiate the deductible.
It's been known.

I hope her finger is okay.
That's the important thing.

I'm supposed to be out of here on the first.
This was supposed to be long term.
Fuck that.

All those costs are why i know some homeless guys that have chosen to stay in a squat in an old factory.

Illegal, but they didn't bother anyone, so they were allowed for a long time.
