I seem to be asking advice a lot on here…
Basically there are two things that are really making me scratch my head. Here they are:
I recently got (finally!) a really good job. It’s enough money to give us a shot at getting out of debt, and it’s one of the best jobs you can imagine. Good pay, a FANTASTIC boss, and I wake up in the morning (right after I get over being upset about waking up early) I look FORWARD to going to work. However, it is in construction, and my company hands out free calendars to our customers with our information on it for advertising. These are a hit with the guys, especially the biker babes and topless girls. They aren’t in plain view and we only give them out maybe 3 months a year. I am just wondering from a moral standpoint what I should do if a customer comes in and asks for one and I’m the only one in the office? Should I give it to them? What would you do?
Part of the reason for the new job is that I had to move to a brand new area far far away from everything I knew. This means friends. I don’t hear from them much, but I do have one friend who is on IM all the time. We were friends through high school, and we were always very close. Matter of fact for one summer, we were really close, with him stating he loved me, and by the time I felt ready to tell him the same, he dumped me because I was…as he said “VERY unattractive”. Needless to say everything ended. We didn’t talk for more than a year, but when I met my husband, I was ready to forgive him, and we went right back to being friends as if nothing happened (after a long talk). My then boyfriend was okay with it. We got engaged, got married, and I always knew he felt jealous, but jus trecently I finally got out of him that he is REALLY jealous, and even confessed he’d feel better if we didn’t talk at all, but he know how horrendously alone I am since i moved away from everyone I knew to be with him. The problem is, this guy is a good friend. He really helps when I am feeling lonely (we talk about movies, books, comics, art, stuff like that, nothing personal, usually) so I am not too willing to cut off this friendship, and my husband feels really bad for feeling that way. What do I do? I’ve already lost so many friends from moving, and friends who have made really bad choices in life and cut me out of them. I lov emy husband to death, but I feel like I m having to give up all my friends for him. My husband never presses the issue, but he does remind me from time to time how uncomfortable he feels.
Any advice is appreciated, but please be kind
