Jun 23rd 2011 7:14PM Yeah -
My last flight, at 5 in the afternoon, was cancelled and rescheduled to 8 the following morning. It didn't take off until 10, when we were dsboarded because the wheels fell off during an aborted takeoff. Hours later, having been told that the Amtrak trains were all cancelled, we got back on the plane. I held it together, but the flight was so awful I actually threw up. I didn't normally have a barf bag but this time it was there. I was told I wasn't the only one that threw up, and it turns out that everyone on the flight had slept on the floor of the airport.
Yeah, baby! So then the boyfirned to who I had lent my car picked me up, too angry to speak (still not sure why.)
Nasty brusies on my arms, ass - lovin' it.
Just can't wait to fly again. Like, never. I will sit through traffic, I will walk, I will take a taxi. I will never, ever, despite the constant demands of my relatives, that I visit on layovers 5 times a year, on whom I am totally financiallyh dependent, "fly" again.
I saw a video of an English rock star arriving atJFK and had to leave the room. It's not really my decision. I just can't o it anymore.
May 15th 2011 10:07AM I am so glad you talked about this job. I can't believe somebody had it worse (albeit just a little worse) than working for the hungover mood-swingin' sexual harassin' scream-in-front-of-the-judge partner at a law firm with a 80-100% associate turnover rate. I was sometimes refused time to eat (no breakfast, lunch, whatever) and was not allowed to go to the doctor - really - and when the managing partner practically threatened me to ask for my accrued vacation time, my partner fired me. Well, I was humiliated and had stuff thrown at me, but at least I wasn't raped. I appreciate your honesty - it makes me feel like I wasn't the only one treated miserably for no reason. I thought it was because I was female. Now I know, by your story, that some bosses are just, uh, existentially unnecessary.
Sep 24th 2010 11:36AM That is exactly right. I'd say that you won't get a comment on that because Advest has an HR policy of merely confirming a past employment relationship.
I also answered all of these poo-head questions correctly, and in 2 1/2 years got one job offer - minimum wage at Radio Shack. I'm a securities lawyer, number 2 in my class. Yeah.
