    to Saturday - no time decided yet. He is taking them to his girlfriend's family's house Friday to Saturday, my elderly parents are coming to my house Saturday (2 hour drive). He wants me to drive an hour at least to meet him and get the kids on Saturday at 1pm. I say this is too late, not fair to me or to my parents, for that matter. He's likely to just insist so I need some rational ideas to convince him. I fucking hate this stuff, he's so selfish and I am too passive.

  23. Toddler I teach at a boarding school. When I was hired, we did not have a sick/personal day policy. This changed a few years ago, which is understandable (I'm sure people were taking...(more) 12 min ago (16 replies)
    advantage.) The problem is that that the policy only accounts for 7:30-4 and our work day isn't structured that day. So if I miss a class but work 8 additional hours, I lose a day. If I work an entire weekend, or have to be here for an admissions event or a arts program, I do not get any credit. I don't think a corporate model works for all situations and it is creating a lot of frustration.
