Forexample, when you see a thread discussing MCR’s latest video and you want toshare your favorite part, please post in the existing thread rather thanstarting a new one. Asking questions isn't necessarily a bad thing; however,please use the search button first. Do not post the same thread in more thanone forum. This will all keep the board less cluttered and help things to runmore smoothly. Please post topics in their appropriate forums. If youposted a thread (that doesn't belong in the forum it was posted in) and it hassuddenly disappeared, chances are it has been moved to the appropriate forum.Please look there and please DO NOT re-post a moved thread because you cannotfind it. Also, feel free to refer back to the forum descriptionsabove when posting topics. If you aren’t sure where to post, come back here andre-read the info.

Some peopleare on here every day and have relationships outside of the boards. Do notexpect to make friends over night. Don’t be afraid of posting or askingquestions. We’re all here for the same reasons. Also, don’t hesitate to contactthe board admin/mods. They’re here to answer your questions and make thismessage board a great place for all fans to hang out. If you stick aroundthough, you'll make friends and participate in a lot of fun activities. **That said, please be extra cautious giving out anypersonal information. Additionally, do not post anyone else’s personal/ privateinformation on the boards.** 4. Respect Board Members: Please be respectful of others. It is ok to have an opinion;however, it is not an invitation to bash someone. Disagreement is OK.Controversy is OK. Everyone can be respectful when they disagree. There is noneed to get nasty over a disagreement. Keep in mind that people of all agesread these boards. Some people may kid around and be sarcastic, but I thinkpeople can generally decipher the difference. Provoking them will not solveanything and if they are bothersome to everyone (and its obvious), they will betaken care of. Report ANY thread you think a moderator should look at.Sometimes the board admin/mods might miss a thread. If you find spammers,obnoxious threads, or anything you think should be reported, send the mods/admina message or report the thread (see below for more info on reporting posts). 5. Personal Attacks and Trolls: Sometimes, disagreements can turn into personal conflicts. This canbe classified as something going beyond a minor disagreement and it turninginto something that can be handled outside of the boards. Please, try to avoidthese, or they will be handled otherwise. However, if someone makes fun of youbecause you didn't read the above listed advice, that is NOT considered apersonal attack. There is a difference. If it needs to be more clearly definedlater, that can be arranged. 6. Closed/DeletedThreads: Please be aware that if you don't follow the rules, there will beconsequences. It’s up to the discretion of the board admin and moderators.Threads/posts can get deleted, edited, or closed when deemed appropriate. Mostlikely there is an explanation why a thread has been closed; however, if youare unsure why one of your topics gets closed or deleted, contact the admin/modthat closed it. Threads/posts will ALMOST never be disposed of for an opinion.However, the option is always there for a thread to be deleted/edited(especially if it goes against the board regulations). 7. Reporting Posts:Do you see a post/thread with content that you think violates some of the ruleslisted above? Most of the time a board admin or mod will catch it. If it’s notclosed or handled quickly, feel free to report the post. Although they try, itis not possible for admin/mods to view every post on every page all the time.Any help you can provide in helping us solve these problems is greatlyappreciated. When reporting a post, please make sure to include a descriptionwhy the admin/mod needs to address the thread or post. It will help them knowwhat they are looking for instead of reading through pages of posts. If thereare certain members causing trouble in a particular thread, make sure youinclude their usernames and why you think they should be reported. **To report a post, use the Report button on the bottom-lefthand side of each post. If you can’t find it and still want to report thethread, copy the thread link and send it in a message to the boardadmin/mods.** 8. Signature Guidelines: For more information on signature guidelines, click here. 9. Spelling and Grammar: When posting, please make sure to double check your spelling.Additionally, please refrain from using text/AIM speak such as, "i wnt 2tlk b4 tmrrw" or "idk y u r tlking lyke that". It's ok to usesome terms like "lol", "bff" or other common abbreviations,but please don't compose a whole post like that. We appreciate your input andwant to make sure that everyone can read it. Also, please don't use a large font or bright colors as yourdefault posting settings. It's ok to use once in a while, but can make yourposts difficult for members to read. 10. FileTrading/ Bootlegs: Discussion of how and where to obtain bootleg (illegallyrecorded) audios or videos is not allowed. Direct links to such files will beremoved promptly and threads will be closed if it gets out of hand. Please keepsuch discussion segregated to private messages. If you're unsure whether or notsomething is a bootleg, here's a simple rule of thumb - if someone sitting inthe audience recorded it, it's a bootleg. Officially recorded aired ontelevision, radio, etc are perfectly acceptable. If you're still unsure, do nothesitate to contact a mod asking whether or not the audio/video you'd like topost is an illegal recording. This is both out of respect for MCR and any otherperformers, as well as to conform to all applicable copyright laws. 11. Becoming a Board Mod: If you are interested in applying for a board mod position (or suggesting another member), please PM the board Admin for more information.

  1. I'm excited! The main drawback is that it doesn't offer health insurance. Bleh. But I'm so excited to work for this organization regardless!
  2. I got offered the job y'all!!!
  3. It's great to see some new faces! I need to give MCR a proper listen again sometime... maybe I'll have that experience like you! Y'all... I had an interview yesterday for basically my dream organization, for a position I know I'll be good at and am qualified for. I wasn't sure how to feel after the interview yesterday, but one of my references just texted me and she said when she was talking to them they said they were excited to get me on board! Maybe this is the one! I'm trying to not get my hopes too up to high still.
  4. man I don't even know how many rejections I have at this point. If we count the ones that I've actually interviewed for, it's about 5? Although one I knew was just a formality since they were trying to promote someone (I applied anyways since why not) and one I was planning on rejecting if they offered the position to me, I guess we both realized it wasn't what I was looking for. I do have two interviews this week. I'm very excited for the one I'm going to tomorrow. Some of my friends tend to do that sometimes. It's definitely irritating when friends are flaky. I don't really say anything, since I know that I can be flaky as well. Though I have kind of phased some friends out of my life because they have continued to let me down. I guess you have to ask yourself if it their friendship is worth the trouble. If not, I usually just stop making plans with them (since I know they will end up canceling anyways.)
  5. hey laine and sulfur! long time no see. i graduate in about two weeks but still have no job prospects... of course, the whole job application process is so depressing that i haven't been trying that hard, either. ugh why can't jobs just fall out of the sky for you?? also been sort of hanging out/dating someone but i think i'm going to break up with him so... life sucks rn.
  6. Ash, I'm so glad things are going well for you. It's awesome that you're graduating soon! Good luck with your dissertation! Francesca, I'm so jealous of your whole trip lol. Meeting all of those new people must be so fun! Maybe one day I'll be able to backpack like you
  7. Yeah I'm just looking forward to next week, when my last term starts. Then in two months I will be done with school forever!! And I'll only have to worry about finding a job that pays enough for me to start paying back my dad for tuition hahaha. But this term will be a lot less stressful since I will be back to doing only one class.
  8. I've kind of taken a break from the job search since I've been really busy with school, but once this term is over I will start up again. My dad's gf might be able to help me get a job with her company, which is different from what I was looking for, but has a pretty good salary. That's so fun! I'm glad you were able to get together! I feel the same way about the mobile boards, but since I finally fixed my laptop I might be able to comment more often.
  9. So these customers adopted a dog from us during the summer. The seemed a bit off, but the wife had visited us with the dog several times and they seemed to be doing okay. They came back on Saturday and wanted to adopt again. We kind of had reservations since the dog they had adopted before didn't do well with other dogs. But the wife said she had worked with the dog and it was okay. So they adopted a puppy and paid with a credit card, which I can process through an app on my phone. All of this is done offsite so we don't have any computers or anything. A couple of hours later the wife came back and said she needed to return the puppy since her dog wasn't getting along with it. We said we couldn't do the return here since they paid with a card, but they could go to the shelter and they would process the refund. My coworker talked to the husband on the phone and he got really upset, said he couldn't do that since he was at work, and was insistent that we could do it there (we can't...) Then the wife walked away and had left the puppy tied up to our trailer, so we had to chase her down to give her back the puppy and said she could get a citation if she abandons it. Which is true because we have all of their information in our system and the puppy has a microchip that will trace back to them. Like two minutes later the husband comes back and drops the puppy on our table and begins to walk away. My coworker says he can do that but he won't get a refund (and will get cited for abandoning the animal). So he turns back around and starts yelling at me, saying I lied to him about the refund, and then starts calling me a bitch and called our volunteer a fatass when both of us tried to explain that he CAN get a refund if he just visits the shelter, since obviously he's not at work. Then he picked the puppy up and walked off again. I've had customers get upset at me before, but nothing like that, and it was pretty distressing. Especially because he still has the puppy and who knows what they're going to do with it. The wife is also pregnant so that kind of sucks to see :-/
  10. Have fun Sonia and Sandra! It's awesome that you guys get to see each other! Missy, I'm jealous of your trip to India, I bet it was amazing! This week has been a bit terrible, and I had a really bad customer experience today that shook me up. I'm hoping to leave this job soon since I really need to get out of customer service. It's nice hearing about all of y'all's adventures though!
  11. haha I think if you can afford to move states you can probably afford health care!
  12. Also, in person life news, I'm pretty stoked because I have three good interviews next week! One of them is a second, working interview for the manager job I previously mentioned. Honestly I'm leaning more towards that one, even if it doesn't offer benefits, it's out of the city and offers more "personal life" benefits... but I'm keeping an open mind! It's also more in my field of working with animals, while the other two are office/admin jobs. Which I was kind of searching for but which also seem super boring compared to the manager one lol. One of the office jobs is at a brewery that I really enjoy, so it could be cool. The other one is a purchasing job at my current workplace. Kind of wanting to get out of working for the government, but it would be nice to keep my benefits tbh and I wouldn't have to work with the public anymore! Really think I'm just going to have to get advice from my parents on these decisions :-/
  13. It really depends on how much you are earning, and yeah I think it does cost more depending on what sort of coverage you are looking for. and for some people the fee to not have insurance is still actually less than getting Obamacare. Not sure how that makes sense! But yeah I agree that updating the problematic parts is more sensible than repealing it and leaving people in the dust- again. Though now I think they are talking about leaving it up to the states, which could be good or bad depending!
  14. If only it were easy enough to do it state by state! It's very difficult when our states are so politically divided. I believe most people are able to get health insurance through their jobs. For example, the health insurance I have right now through my work is actually very good and affordable. But when you, for example, work several part time jobs, or are a contractor or freelancer, or work for a small business that can only provide limited options- that's when you get into the tricky grey area. My friend is a contract employee for a school district and freelances on the side. Obtaining health insurance has been very difficult for her since she's kind of a "non-traditional" employee. That's the type of situation ACA is supposed to cover :-/ but everything is difficult. My previous job was a small business as well, but they were able to offer health insurance, except it was expensive and provided limited coverage. So some people went to ACA since it was cheaper.
  15. Yeah i understand it is a little harder to implement because of our size and whatever... but still... the thing is too that many poorer people are able to get things like Medicaid, but when you're between dirt broke and comfortable, but you have a job, there's fewer options? If that makes sense. Because a lot of the social programs designed to help people only apply to those making less than a certain amount, but everything else is freaking expensive, so if you make too much for one and can't afford the other you're kind of screwed lol that's why I liked the ACA but i guess we'll see how things go.
