    Do you think this is a scam?

    I think we need some kind of symbol or code phrase here on AN that stands for "Just registering that I have seen this and let it be known that I am taking the high road." :) Just kidding, Jersey (sort of). Yes. It sounds slightly scammy.

    I think coworker is in witness protection program

    A person whose stories might actually be true, but they always seem just a little extravagant, possibly even grandiose given the other known facts of their life. I thought it was a silly "Hey, maybe......"

    I think coworker is in witness protection program

    If he's in the program then wearing the shirt would be clever. It'd be like any goofy shirt ("Princess" or whatever) - they practically beg people to mentally say :rolleyes:

    OT: purging, not even regifting

    A couple of things come to mind: 1) Giving good gifts is more of a ? talent or maybe personality-associated thing than we give it credit for. I don't know how to describe it but regardless I think many people assume that a good gift would've been given if the person a) cared b) tried c) wanted to - - but I don't think that's a given. 2) I think waaaaay too many gifts are given at the holidays in general. I really dislike especially extended-family gift-giving. If it's someone I only get together with a few times a year or so...the holidays simply shouldn't involve gifts. It may not be too stressful for someone who has that talent, but for those of us who don't it can be angst-inducing! In any case, I wouldn't be thrilled with the gifts received by the OP, and I would seize the occasion to suggest a moratorium on further gift exchanges w/ the individual/family, since that's what I'd like to do about 75% of the time anyway!
  5. I think leftists and rightists are both doing a phenomenal job at removing true compassion and pretty much all common sense from anything related to patient care, each for their own political purposes. So you should be fine. I can't imagine how anyone can pick a side these days, but that's just me.

    Juggling Boyfriend and Nursing

    I believe the time factor will work itself out if you both desire that and plan accordingly. I agree with those who are essentially saying not to sabotage your education and career by worrying about this or slighting your school responsibilities in this situation. But I also believe that if you do indeed have a strong relationship and are mutually committed to it, it deserves continued attention. People can make mistakes on both "sides" of the education/relationship equation, and it IS possible one could find oneself at a place in life (with regard to career and relationships with loved ones) where you suddenly realize which one of those two entities actually cares anything about you in return. Don't throw away a good educational opportunity OR a genuinely good relationship.
