re: 401 K question - igoringa

re: how the money works for single payer health care - igoringa
I am always fascinated with these debates. I am bias - having spent 25 years in a single payer system (only one mind you), I wouldn't trade any dollar amount to be subject to it again. Having your father bring told if chemo and radiation doesn't work he has 4 months, but the wait is 8 weeks so...

re: Interviewing young adults today and scratching my head - igoringa
[quote]Gratitude? Seriously thats one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. Why would a worker show "gratitude" for receiving a job they meet the requirements of? Worker does the job, Business pays the worker. Thats how it works - no gratitude required. [/quote] Completely agree, although I...

The hiring manager will likely ask me why I left after only 3 months. If I answer truthfully its likely the answer would be received poorly. If I lie an...
