Picture this

You have three kids ages 12, 9 and 6, all in activities, plus you have pets.

You work full time and your husband works part time- has for years, on purpose, to make home life easier and because you don’t need the money.

A position comes up, that is really good, pays more, etc and you both apply.

You could get, or he could, or you both could. If you do then on February 26th you would be gone out of town for a month.

And they wont tell you if you get it until the week before, probably not even a full week. Neither of you might get it at all.

You will have only 7 or less days to plan who will watch your kids/pets etc for an entire month.

Upper management and HR don’t care about you or your situation and there’s nothing you can do to change it.


…. I feel so angry and stressed.
