Can someone shed some light on this for me and why (future) employers do this? It really pisses me off.

So I applied for a job that I've wanted for a really long time. Did the interview, did great, received a call from HR stating I got the job. And she gave me a schedule to choose from. BUT! Here's the thing. Getting the job is contingent upon a favorable background check. I am so frustrated right now.

Actually, it's rather odd, but I really don't exchange presents with a lot of people. I would exchange them with my relatives, but they're the cheap a$$ Scrooges in the family.
I love shopping for people. I'm so sad because this is my daughter's first christmas. I know she won't remember but jeez, I wanted it to be great for her. BLAH.

She's doing great. She's learning how to sit up now. I love her to pieces! I found out the heart murmur she had is nothing to worry about and that I will never have to take her to a cardiologist again! Now, it's just the foot thing I have to worry about. YAY!

She's dedicated and she takes her career seriously.

I know the type.

Snow, I'll try to curtail my crazy partying ways.

sometimes background checks take time to complete, and if you are the most suitable candidate for the job bar the results of the check they may want to "book" you so to speak. maybe


congrats though, and I read from the bottom up so also great news about the wee one's murmur

remember something cold from the freezer for instant skin relief!!

What she said. For all they know, you have multiple offers....they want you to work there, so they make the offer pending what they likely view as a formality.

Congrats!

Hey y'all


I have just now decided that I love Russia

They gave us vodka, Tetris, and fake lesbians. I mean, sure, there was the communism thing, but I can overlook that.

I'm loathe to admit it, but yes, I'm dedicated and contientious. I think not having direct reports will be a nice break for me :mortified admitting that but I hold myself way to accountable to them and the business:


Sometimes I feel like that child Solomon suggested halving.

I know. But with the way some of the doctors were acting, it was like the end of the world which made me freak out.
