    Hi I'm 22 and unfortunately have just left my job due to being badly bullied by a co worker, and management doing absolutely nothing about it. I am currently looking for a new role in the same industry. However, my mind has now conjured up a new worry. The co worker that was bullying me was also looking to leave and find a new job doing the same thing (we both did the same job). The problem is, where I live there are only really 40-50 places you can work doing what I do, so the chances of running into someone you already know is reasonably high. I'm worrying now that me and my ex co-worker will unknowingly apply at the same company and become co-workers again. This co worker was throwing food at me, so I'd really like to avoid them if possible, as I'd probably end up leaving again, is this my anxiety creating these worries. The thing is, they are perfectly fine out of work, I.e. Work night outs, so I guess I could message them on Facebook and see what they're up to before I accept a new job offer. I know there is a small possibility of this happening, but am I over thinking/exaggerating it all?

  • My boyfriend doesn't think I should get a personal loan?

    So I found a decent loan for the amount I want, to expand his business. My credit is "good". But I'm currently unemployed. He said "Nobody will throw you money and expect you to pay it back".

    So I found a decent loan for the amount I want, to expand his business. My credit is "good". But I'm currently unemployed. He said "Nobody will throw you money and expect you to pay it back". I guess he's right? I don't have any assets (in my name) I have given him a couple thousand to get his company off the ground. It's been carrying us through these past couple of months, but we're slowing down for the season.. So money is getting tighter. I wanted to get a personal loan, so I can buy better equipment for his company for next year AND create an emergency fund. I did the math and we can do it. It would only cost us $2k. But it could take us up to 10 years to pay the loan back. (if business doesn't improve - which is doubtful, because of the awesome new equipment I want!) Otherwise, pay it off quicker and save money! I don't know why he's against this?

  • Not agreeing on buying a house?

    My fiance found a house she really likes, but it was built in 1930. I liked the house as well, but she is highly worried about asbestos in older homes.

    My fiance found a house she really likes, but it was built in 1930. I liked the house as well, but she is highly worried about asbestos in older homes. The house fits our needs, and is in our budget. I told her it should be fine, but she won't stop worrying about it, and if we choose to get the house she wants to have extra testing done on it. I think it's a waste of time, and money. She is extra worried about living in a house that contains any sort of asbestos is because her mom passed away of lung cancer, as her uncle. Her mom died in her early 60s and apparently her uncle died in his early ot middle 40s. I tired to tell her she will be fine, and it has to be air bone, but she doesn't care. She doesn't want to put her self as the "extra risk" I don't think it's that big of a deal, but she just seems to get upset with me, and thinks I'm being insensitive

  • Can I use a priority shipping box that is dated 2016?

    I have some old priority mail shipping boxes in my closest. I have to ship something and pack it tonite. The boxes are dates 2016, so I'm not sure if that's allowed? It's a USPS priority box. Also the item I'm shipping is about 3 pounds, is USPS the best choice for this?

    It's relevance you want to be attention-grabbing. The rest is a bit superflous, but always relevance to the post - 1st.
    I wish you well.

  • I want to know can a landlord tell a tenant what he/she can and can't wear?

    Best answer: Depends. Inside your unit no. Outside your unit in the "common" areas - yes. I live in an 8 story building; we cannot wear night clothes outside our apartments. If we want to get our mail, take the trash out or whatever we must be dressed appropriately - by that I mean private body parts... show more

    They want a better class of people where I live (as evidenced by the appearance and all the money they've sunk into landscaping, the lobby, new roof, etc - not to mention high rents). Looking like trailer trash discourages people from renting here.

    Best answer: Have him third party endorse the check. Where he would sign on the back, he writes, "pay to the order of <your name>" followed by his signature. Then you take it to your bank. Google "how to third party endorse a check."

    Having inspection done this coming Saturday for a house that is being sold "As Is". It's obvious the roof needs some repairing and some of the electrical outlets aren't grounded and there may be some other damage we don't know about. This is our first house, so just curious, would seller's normally agree to negotiate and work out a deal to take, say $5,000 off of closing costs if there are some serious issues? Or would they not even bother and usually just kill the deal because they are strictly selling it "As Is" after all? I mean, based on your experiences...generally speaking here? Thanks
