@amy i have recently started in recruitment and when reviewing resumes I only pay attention to their name when keeping records, I don’t look at a name until after I have reviewed their work experience and if they have the correct skill set, in fact I spoke to someone yesterday who had the exact skill set for the job I was recruiting for and when I spoke with her it was quite obvious she was Polynesian, I could tell by her work experience she has worked hard to prove herself as capable.
@elspeth I feel like by just ready the descriptions I think I already can tell the ‘twist’ in at least 4 of them. Part of the reason I only borrow books from the library now.
I fell in love with the Tiffany’s princess cut ring, so got a much cheaper/smaller version. Engagement rings all look the same nowadays, anyway, is it really that big a deal??? They can’t be the exact same as you are different people in different relationships. A ring doesn’t define a relationship.
@rush exactly, it’s obvious all of those photos of her with smooth skin are photoshopped, just look at the scar on her cheek in natural photos 🤷🏼♀️ It’s quite obvious she has acne scarring in those photos too. You only have to watch a make-up tutorial on YouTube to see what a crap tonne of makeup and good lighting can do, ‘Nikki Tutorials’ is the perfect example here. Even a fake tan can make skin look smoother!
Having had a trial declared a mistrial and the thought of the prospect of having to go through it again leading me to self-harm, I really feel for these women.
To be fair, the bank one is the banks own stupid fault for having a phone number so close to a competitors, I’m sure that there would be plenty of customers who would make that mistake themselves over the years if they are that close!
@mamamia-user-482898552 I get what you are saying, as someone who has been in and out of hospital my whole life and had thousands of medical students accompanying my several doctors, I know the difference between students, residents and registrars (from my experience most leave between residency and becoming a registrar - and all of this was observed and learned before I was even in high school, let alone Greys being on TV), but she is still ‘technically speaking’ a doctor IN TRAINING, you don’t become qualified in anything until AFTER you have completed training. And given all of her achievements AND studying medicine AND doing placements with a small child who seems to still be in nappies, those are amazing achievements! She’s not going to have access to patients without supervision so I really don’t think the way she uses the terminology outside of the hospital setting matters, given she will always be introduced by the supervising doctor before even being allowed to say hello to a patient. Personally, I think she deserves to call herself a a trainee doctor - in her personal life, the general population don’t understand most terminology anyway.
All well an good for someone who can actually afford close to $200 a WEEK to put aside.. for all those out of work thanks to covid they can’t even afford that much for groceries for a family, let alone to put aside.. as a pensioner, that’s almost half my annual ‘income’. I have just started a casual job just to afford more than baked beans soup and eggs for dinner.
@maya I was seconds away from death and my offender still only got a good behaviour order and ‘DV education’ and I have a DVO I can renew every 2 years. I had an incident where he inadvertently threatened me with his car and do you know what the police told me? “He didn’t verbally threaten you and he didn’t follow you so there is nothing we can do”. What was the point of me reliving the hell he put me through when I testified, then again the ongoing hell I went through after that reliving it in my victim impact statement, only to be told when an incident occurred, with witnesses, there’s nothing that can be done?
@rush my offender had to do compulsory DV education. At sentencing he still didn’t think he had done anything wrong and blamed me for what HE did. I am certain the education would have been pointless with him. Unless the offender understands and takes responsibility for their actions, no amount of anything will make a difference. He still lives in my neighbourhood and over two and a half years later I still struggle with the aftermath and am triggered if I even drive past him.
My hair is naturally this exact colouring! Finally I’m effortlessly trendy... only 30 something years...
My cats knew I was pregnant before I knew both times. Females cats, desexed, but started spraying around the time I conceived (hadn’t done the tests yet!) stopped after a few weeks. Also became REALLY smoochy and neither were typically smoochy. Obviously they didn’t know it was pregnancy, but they could tell something had changed in me.
@fightofyourlife I read the whole thing and honestly, even if I was willing to spend $200 on a single pair of jeans (if my Kmart $15 jeans only last 3 years, still a decent investment imo!) the article was very lacking in enthusiasm considering she apparently lives them..
That first one, a definite married man trying to have an affair, it has ALL the red flags.
@snorks thank you for the intellectual conversation rather than the stupidity being broadcast out there. Whist the first WWII reference was kind of a moot point (realistically, they are still doing it with asylum seeker detention..).
I haven’t watched it yet, but I am going to.
@rush right?! I had wanted to go on a weekend cruise for my birthday this month.. it would be my first if I had (not that any are available here) now I am reconsidering ever going on one!
@snorks I do understand where you are coming from, but it’s not as simple as “the government telling us what we have to wear”. They aren’t doing it to infringe upon our human rights, in fact they are doing it to protect our human rights - the right to live a safe and healthy life. They are doing it to save lives, not to be a$$holes. And it’s only under emergency orders, once the country is declared pandemic free (hopefully sometime in the next 6-12 months, for all our sakes!) those emergency orders are discarded because of the order they were made under.
As someone who has suffered on and off (I say on and off as I haven’t always suffered from it, but always have it) with mental illness my entire adult life (and then some), I know now I can’t survive without psychologists. I would see one when things were bad then stop when things were good. This meant my BPD2 went undiagnosed until I was 31 when I finally saw my psychologist when I was doing well too. I realise now they aren’t just there for the crisis and they can know you much better if they see you in the good times as well as the bad. I’m very lucky to have been given funding for extra visits this year through a victim support organisation so I can see my psychologist every 2-3 weeks without having to worry about if I can afford it (at $120 a session there’s no way I could even afford monthly after my 10 Medicare sessions were up!) but if you can space out sessions outside of crisis times to once a month (take off December/jan of you can, being such busy times for most people anyway) when you are doing well, you will be amazed at how much seeing a psychologist even in good times helps! It also means when you reach a crisis 1. It’s not hard to get in to see them and 2. They recognise it sometimes before you do!
I assure you, height restrictions don’t stop this happening!
My mum somehow convinced me when we went to wonderland for my 9th birthday, that the pirate ship at the end of wonderland was different to the one at the start and this one didn’t go all the way around. I easily met the height restriction!
But when the ride started going upside down, because I was so skinny (how I wish I had that build still) I started slipping! I was sure I was going to fall out of it which is why I screamed. My mum thought my screaming was hilarious not realising it wasn’t just the going upside down but I honestly felt like I was going to fall out and die. It didn’t make my mum irresponsible taking me on it, I was at least a good 7cm over the height restriction. I just didn’t have enough body fat to fill out the gap between the seat and the harness, they don’t alert you to things like that!
I went back years later and went on the pirate ship 5+ times with my friends not scared at all, because I didn’t literally lift out of my seat.
