  • Job asked me to work during my self quarantine ?

    So a coworker of mine tested positive for COVID-19. I then saw a doctor, who told me (in writing) that I need to self quarantine for 14 days. My HR department and my top boss approved. My immediate boss, however, just asked me to work regardless of my self quarantine. She said she knows it’s before my two weeks are up, but she is swamped and doesn’t have any coverage. Can they do this to me after a medical professional advised me to self quarantine for 14 days?

  • Coworker tested positive for COVID 19?

    So a coworker of mine who I have been in close contact with has now tested positive for the coronavirus. I have been advised by my doctor to self quarantine and get tested. Is there any unemployment/disability I am entitled to in California? My job has been notoriously bad at handling this case.

  • Can my employer get in trouble for this? (COVID-19)?

    I just found out that one of my coworkers (who I was in close contact with) has been tested for COVID-19. I also found out that my company did not inform over half of the staff of the possible infection (when I brought it up, many of my coworkers had no idea). Does my company have to disclose that someone in our shared workplace may have COVID-19? Or do they only have to tell us if he tests positive for it?

  • Coworker may have COVID-19?

    Went into work today to discover that a coworker of mine (who I am frequently around) complained of body aches and a cough yesterday and still came into work! After he was quickly sent home, he was tested for COVID-19. We won't know the results until Friday, but is there any precautions I should be taking until then? (ie: staying home from work, self quarantining?) Admittedly, I woke up this morning with abdominal cramps and I was feeling very feverish (no fever, 98.4).

    Note: I am a healthy 20 yo female. Also, on 6/19/20, I donated blood and it was tested for the covid antibodies. My test came back negative.

  • Photographer hasn’t sent my pictures back yet?

    I’m a model that just signed to an agency, and naturally they need headshots for their online profile of me. I hired a photographer I found on Groupon and had the photo shoot. 

    Overall it was a good experience! I texted her the same day to ask when the pictures would be ready. She then told me that they would be ready in two days (Wednesday). It is Wednesday today and I texted her again asking when I can expect them by.

    No response.

    Personally, I wouldn’t usually care but my agency is blowing up my phone asking when the pictures will be ready. Should I reach out to her again?

  • Am I eligible for Unemployment? (COVID-19)?

    I work as a part time receptionist at Honda. I used to work 20 hours a week, and my hours have now been cut to about 10 hours a week due to COVID-19. I am barely able to pay for my car payment now, is there any benefits for those that have had their hours reduced due to the coronavirus?

  • How to stop having anxiety over dumb reasons?

    I deal with anxiety on a daily basis, and catch myself having these mini panic attacks over things I KNOW are dumb. The attacks mostly have my heart beating fast and my thoughts going into overdrive. The following are some examples:

    1.Going to the doctor (I have been diagnosed with White Coat Syndrome). My blood pressure is ALWAYS high when I go, but never high when I check at home.

    2. Waking up in the morning (for whatever reason I wake up thinking I am late, and I go into panic mode). The thing is, I can very much recognize the fact that I am not late for anything.

    3. Any family issues 

    4. Constantly thinking about the past

    5. Constantly thinking about what I have to do the next day 

    It’s like my brain and my body are on two separate pages. My brain can definitely recognize that there is no threat, but my body reacts as though I’m about to get into a fight. The anxiety is way worse when I’m alone, and isn’t so bad when I’m distracted (i.e.: talking to someone).

    Why is this happening and how do I get it to stop? I have been taking benedryl to ease the anxiety and it tends to work.

  • Family Disowned Me (How do I fix it)??

    So all of this really started with my oldest brother (he’s 33, I’m 20). I’ll call him “John.” For years I would help John “finish” his relationships- meaning when he breaks up with the various women he dates, I was always asked to take their belongings back to them for him (sometimes even going to their house).

    Recently I was asked again to return some more belongings to a girl that lives closer to me than him (probably why he asked me to do it).

    This time I said no. I didn’t think it would matter because I had to work anyway, and it all made me super uncomfortable.

    When I told him I wanted no part in it (dealing with crying ex’s, screaming in my face, asking ME why the relationship didn’t work out), he blew up.

    John told me that since he had helped me out with the child abuse I suffered from my mother (we have different moms), and since he co-signed on my car, that I should do whatever he asks me to do. 

    He has since called me unloyal, and I am now no longer allowed in his house (where my two other brothers live) and I am no longer allowed to see my niece (7) and nephew (4).

    Apparently, John does not want his kids around me because I’m “starting drama” and “negatively impacting” the children. 

    I absolutely took offense to this, and told him in no uncertain terms that HE is the one that brings loads of women around his kids, and HE is the one negatively impacting his kids (they cry and ask me when these women are coming back constantly.

  • Ex won’t return my things?

    I dated my ex for two years, and we ended on somewhat mature and good terms (we were even friends!). Once I began asking for my stuff back, he stopped speaking to me.

    When I finally did get a response weeks later, it was his new girlfriend saying “we threw your **** away, get new stuff.” She also threatened to kill me on multiple occasions (through text), specifically saying she’ll “**** me up” and “make me disappear.” I have all of these on record.

    I then called my ex and the girl answered, admitting on tape (I recorded it) that she and my ex threw all of my things away. It is SO infuriating, since all I want are my things back. I ended it with him, so I want nothing but my stuff back.

    So now, he is saying that he magically “found” all the things he threw away and that he will send them. That was two weeks ago, and he lives an hour away from me. He is giving me the run around and I’m not sure how exactly to get my things back. We did not live together, nor are we married. He has me blocked and I have no way of communicating with him to get my things back. What are my options?

    **when I threatened to go to the police, my ex made up a story that his girlfriend is pregnant, and that I should feel bad about taking a pregnant woman to court??? So stupid!!

  • My brother won’t let me see my niece and my nephew (help??!)?

    I have an older brother (I’m 19 and he’s 33). In a nutshell, he dates a lot and recently he asked me to return some of his belongings to his ex.  

    I told him I didn’t want to be apart of his past relationships/drama, and he basically said I was cut out of his life. I said that was fine as long as I get to see my niece and nephew (his kids). He said that was fine, and that I can have free access to the kids (his exact words).

    Recently, I went over to see my niece and my nephew and spend time with my other brother as they all live in an apartment together. While I was over there, i guess he said hello to me (I didn’t hear it as I was playing with my niece and nephew).

     The next day he sends me a text that says if I can’t say hello to him then I’m teaching his kids to be disrespectful/rude and I can’t see them anymore/come over. He also said it could negatively affect them if they think there is an argument within the family.

    To be truthful even when we were on good terms I still didn’t really talk to him that much. How do I go about seeing my niece and nephew? Their mother (who my brother is not with) would be more than happy to let me see them but I feel like that would cause even more drama within the family.

  •  My roommate/brother won’t let me invite my own sister over?

    My sister occasionally comes over to my apartment (once a month or so). My brother/roommate has now told me she is not allowed at our home. My brother and sister do not get along, but my sister causes no drama and doesn't even speak to him when she comes over.

    He came to this conclusion because she came over last night and I guess he said hi to her and she didn’t respond to him?? She said she didn’t hear him but now he’s made a new rule that if she can’t say hello to him then that’s disrespectful and she can’t come over.

    Can he legally refuse to let me have her over? I get along with her fine and would hate to stop having her over. I pay a third of the rent and I don’t think it’s fair that I can’t have a guest over.

  • Can I bring a guest into my apartment even if my roommate refuses?

    Once a month or so I have my sister over at my apartment. My other roommate (my brother) doesn’t get along with my sister and won’t let her come over. She only comes over for a few hours, then leaves. She doesn’t speak to him or start any drama. Can he legally demand that she doesn’t come over? I love having her over and I get along with her fine.

  • My brother will NOT talk to me anymore?

    To put things into perspective, my brother is 33 and I am 19. My brother often jumps into relationships quickly. In his latest break up, he asked me to return some of her valuables back to her. When I asked him why he couldn’t do it, he proceeded to make up some excuse about how I live closer to her.     

    I told him I did not want to do it because it makes me uncomfortable (the last time I did this for him, his ex was crying in my arms and screaming at me for answers as to why he dumped her). This ex lives 5 minutes from his home, and he still asked me to go do this while I was in town for my birthday.     

    After I explained why I don’t want to be involved, he blew up at me and told me I was unloyal. He also said we weren’t really “family” and unfollowed me on instagram. His position is that since he co-signed a car for me 6 months ago (the payments are extremely low), I should have his back. It should be noted that I haven never missed a payment or been late.     

    How do I resolve this? He refuses to speak to me, and honestly I just want to move on from this situation.

  • Car is wobbly after I took it to a mechanic?

    Needed a new power steering pump, and it was replaced. Now that I have the car back, it feels wobbly when I’m driving. It definitely wasn’t like this before, should the mechanic fix it?
