Negotiating terms of job offers. May have to walk away from yet another one. *sigh*
:( - Heather
:( - Elena
:( Can you freelance or work as a contractor for a while? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
:( - Shevonne from Android
Zulema: I am temping right now, but I can't budget for things like rent, phone bills, insurance payments, etc without that guaranteed salary. I'm also living in a friend's guest room with all my stuff in storage whilst I search for full-time permanent employment. - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
The good news is, however, that the written agreement I should see by noon tomorrow will look better than what we initially discussed a month ago. And we're reviewing in 90 days, per my request, so I can move on easily if I need to. Definitely feeling more comfortable with this situation... We'll see. *fingers crossed* - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
*taking deep breaths* Still no contract in my inbox. I did get a phone call explaining why, however, and a summary of how it's being taken care of. Should have it tomorrow morning. Such an anti-climactic way to accept a job offer. So, I guess there will be cause to celebrate this weekend... - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
Lisa, if my Mum wins lotto and gives us a couple million dollars, and I offer you a job as my nanny, will you take it? - Melly Claus #anticaper
Melly . . . I will. :^) - Friar Will
Yes! I'm dying to live somewhere with good health care! Plus, my humor usually fits well with Aussies. :) - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
Back off, Will! EDIT: *hoping that doesn't come across as harshly as it looks* - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
But . . . but . . . but . . . :^( EDIT: I was thinking you were kidding. - Friar Will
Will, I'd love a cook, cleaner, gardener, dog walker and handyman also - can you do any of those things? :oD - Melly Claus #anticaper
Seriously, Lisa, I hope this current offer works out for you. - Friar Will
Yes. All of the above. I will be waiting for your email/call. :^) - Friar Will
My terms are really tough, Lisa. You can choose whether to live in or out. Some overnights and weekends required. Lots of hanging out with me and time to play on the Intarwebs involved. - Melly Claus #anticaper
Will, you're hired! Lisa - if Mum ever did win lotto, I would seriously call you! Meanwhile, I hope this job works out! xoxoxox - Melly Claus #anticaper
I'll help with the dog, too. I'll even take turns with Will. - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
Now we're talking! - Friar Will
And both of you can beat me at word games on facebook. - Friar Will
Um, Melly? Do I get to play with your spawn, as well? - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
No, you're MY nanny, not theirs :op But yeah, I'll need someone to watch them while I study criminology :oD - Melly Claus #anticaper
Will, will you be our pastor, too? It would be pretty cool to have church without having to get out of bed. - Melly Claus #anticaper
I can do that. It will be pretty cool to be a pastor without having to go to church as well. :^) - Friar Will
Just as I thought! Love it! PS: I'm not kidding. I would totally be your nanny. I'm also willing to hang out with any of the other #FFBabbies, if anyone can match Melly's terms. - Lisa L. Seifert from Android

UUUUUUUUGH! The drama continues... I am drinking wine and drafting responses to their PATHETIC attempt at an employment agreement. I just can't. Wow. *pours more wine* - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
Still negotiating. *sigh* I can't start drinking for the weekend until this is finished. Otherwise I might say what I really want to say instead of being charming and diplomatic...not to mention professional. - Lisa L. Seifert
What sorts of shenanigans are they trying to pull? - Hookuh Tinypants
Unpaid vacation/holidays/sick days is the biggest thing. - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
Fuuuuuuuuuuuuu! This is becoming a HUGE headache. Please send prayers. And tequila. - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
Can I drink the tequila on your behalf? I promise I'm a very charming drunk. - Hookuh Tinypants
Yes, you may. You are charming either way, doll. Can you get me a job, too? ;) - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
Cancel the tequila for me now. My stomach is responding to the stress & anxiety. Working my plan. *deep breaths* *recites mantra* - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
Well, the negotiating is over. I have walked away. Onward and upward. :) - Lisa L. Seifert
Best of luck to you, Lisa. - Friar Will
Thanks, Will. :) - Lisa L. Seifert
