The unemployment days.. Really takes me back. I was depressed as hell then. You feel worthless and as if you're contributing nothing to society. Feels so much better to be productive and EARN a paycheck. I do miss the carefree attitude and wearing shorts/schmedium t-shirt everyday.

Then she slept with the Boss and he wants her gone because he's moved on to a new office piece.

Comments like this is what makes getbig so insightful

Why don't you just tell us she's a bitch, admit you're an enabler, realize she wants unemployment pay to sit around and do nothing, and stop making shit threads.

Couldn't be further from the truth. She has been working since she was 14. Does not want unemployment, would just like to hear her options in case she is fired and has to worry about bills while searching for a new job. I think anyone in her situation would think the same.

California has a strong Labor Relations Board. It is very uber Liberal and pro employee. Employer will have had to 'written her up' 3 times and given her a copy. If not she is in a good position to win a suit with the State representing her.

That's the thing, she has been written up twice. We are thinking this is their way of getting rid of her on the 3rd write up. Her write up from Friday pertained to the way she greeted the incoming regional manager. She didn't chat or exchange pleasantries, basically said "hi" and left it at that. I have been telling her to sign the write ups but explain why you disagree w it in writing.

What is it about her they don't like? What does she do that angers them?

She isnt a kiss ass, nor is she fake. Most people there are over the top nice, whereas she isn't as personable. They want her to be ridiculously pleasant and someone she isn't. Realistically it isn't a good fit. They are in the process of selling and she isn't that type of individual.

Reasons for denying unemployment is:
  • Malfeasance (dishonesty, violence, and the like)
  • voluntary separation (quitting)


Being bad at a job is not malfeasance.

I've read however that having a bad attitude is still grounds for dismissal and gives the employer the ability to contest unemployment

It's difficult for her to leave. She makes decent $ with little education. We are hoping unemployment is an option in case she gets laid off so her bills are covered while she looks for a new position. She works for an at-will employer. We are in California

Girlfriend is being written up for bs reasons at work? She has great performance evaluations but they say her "attitude" is bad and it is considered misconduct. She had been written up twice. We are both wondering if she is fired, whether or not she will receive unemployment. She isn't doing anything to cause the business to lose $, just isn't a person who kisses ass like most others in her position.

Sabotage looks good, but bombed at the box office. I'll definitely check it out on DVD.

As for Escape Plan... It was ok, but they definitely waited too long to do a flick together.

I picked up onion rings, 4 rodeo burgers, chicken nuggets, stouffers pizza, beer, whiskey, cookie dough ice cream and chocolate cake... Let the games begin!
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Cheat meal ideas? on: March 22, 2014, 12:06:00 PM
Onion rings are pretty fucking good.

This! Burger King onion rings sound pretty damn good.

It's that day. Unsure of what to have. Ideas for epic cheat meals?

What have you found best when cycling it? 6 weeks on, 6 off? Ive got a bottle here of pure monohydrate I'd like to start using again.

amazing physique in his prime.



I believe he is only 22 or so in this picture. Looks 42. Good on him to realize what's important in life. Health!

Happy 99.9% of the time with her. Amazing, amazing woman. She would do anything for me and treats me incredibly well. All around great girl who comes from a great family. We've been together over 2 years. No complaints whatsoever.
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Nick Wright seems like a fake natural (Dustin Loyd's friend) on: February 18, 2014, 08:45:47 AM
This kid looks like garbage. I've seen a few of his videos and just shake my head at each and every one. He follows the notion that every carb is created equal. Must be why he looks like a tub of goo offseason. I remember seeing one of him eating a bowl of cocoa puffs at 2 in the morning, discussing how this will not e stored as fat. Might be a little bit easier to believer him if he didn't have such a horrible build.

Kid looks a lot better when dieted down, but even still, I know of a lot of natural guys who lift weights and look better than this guy, myself included.

Good on him for cashing in with YouTube exposure, however.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 425 Lb Squat on: February 15, 2014, 03:21:14 PM
Not a big squatter over here. I prefer front squats with a ROM to the ground and limited rest.
I can't remember the last time I witnessed someone use full ROM while doing squats. It seems I need to join a new gym.

Costco 4.99 chicken is a staple in my household. Such a great deal, and they taste amazing.

Google any picture of a chicken and you'll get the visual of my calves. Refuse to grow. Freaking genetics. Oh well, my arms are huge.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: my deltoid is extraordinarily weak for raises compared to other ppl on: February 05, 2014, 01:26:32 PM
Speaking of raises and presses. Anyone else disgusted by just about every person in the gym, grabbing dumbbells or a loading up a barbell way too heavy and pressing with a ROM starting from the top of their head. Not just one or two, but everyone. Irritates the hell out of me.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Flea... lip-synching the bass at Super Bowl/Bruno Mars show on: February 04, 2014, 05:33:59 PM
Fleas explanation sounds legit.......


Dear everybody,
When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song Give It Away at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums, and guitar would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL’s stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers stance on any sort of miming has been that we will absolutely not do it. The last time we did it (or tried to) was in the late 80′s, we were thrown off of ‘The Top Of the Pops’ television program in the U.K. during rehearsals because we refused to mime properly, I played bass with my shoe, John played guitar atop Anthony’s shoulders, and we basically had a wrestling match onstage, making a mockery of the idea that it was a real live performance.
We mimed on one or two weird MTV shows before that and it always was a drag. We take our music playing seriously, it is a sacred thing for us, and anyone who has ever seen us in concert (like the night before the Super Bowl at the Barclays Center), knows that we play from our heart, we improvise spontaneously, take musical risks, and sweat blood at every show. We have been on the road for 31 years doing it.
So, when this Super Bowl gig concept came up, there was a lot of confusion amongst us as whether or not we should do it, but we eventually decided, it was a surreal-like, once in a life time crazy thing to do and we would just have fun and do it. We had given this a lot of thought before agreeing to do it, and besides many a long conversation amongst ourselves, I spoke with many musician friends for whom I have the utmost respect, and they all said they would do it if asked, that it was a wild trippy thing to do, what the hell. Plus, we the RHCP all love football too and that played a big part in our decision. We decided that, with Anthony singing live, that we could still bring the spirit and freedom of what we do into the performance, and of course we played every note in the recording specially for the gig. I met and spoke with Bruno, who was a beautiful dude, a real talented musician, and we worked out something that seemed like it would be fun.
We recorded a track for the day, just banged one out from our hearts that was very like in spirit to the versions we have been playing live the last few years with our beloved Josh on guitar.
For the actual performance, Josh, Chad, and I were playing along with the pre recorded track so there was no need to plug in our guitars, so we did not. Could we have plugged them in and avoided bumming people out who have expressed disappointment that the instrumental track was pre recorded? Of course easily we could have and this would be a non-issue. We thought it better to not pretend. It seemed like the realest thing to do in the circumstance. It was like making a music video in front of a gazillion people, except with live vocals, and only one chance to rock it. Our only thought was to bring the spirit of who we are to the people.
I am grateful to the NFL for having us. And I am grateful to Bruno, who is a super talented young man for inviting us to be a part of his gig. I would do it all the same way again.
We, as a band, aspire to grow as musicians and songwriters, and to continue to play our guts out live onstage for anyone who wants to get their brains blown out.
Sincerely,

Doctor? Where did I say I was a doctor? If peds would help anyone it would be him with his grinding style. And as for usta only overseeing limited tournaments, well money talks. Rafa failing a drug test would destroy revenue and interest in the sport. Him being one of the GOAT would make it a huge deal.

Not trolling. Just find it hard to believe he takes those 7 months off and had best year if his career. Things just don't add up to me. His knees bothered him his entire career and now are fine? How can this be? The link to the Spanish cycling team also brings up questions. Again, no troll job. Just someone who follows tennis closely and enjoys exploring the what if's
