• How does an English Supervisor handle a Mexican co-worker!?

    I am living in Canada and to my Mexican co-worker I am coming across as being very rude, when nothing is further from the truth. I am willing to change to improve the situation and have tried just about everything in the 5 years we have worked together. I am a meek and mild person and a good Christian too if that helps.

  • Do sardines have a lot of mercury in them?

    One of my favourite lunches and today my co-worker warned me about eating them because of what the mercury can do to my brain (if it hasn't already!).

    I really need to be in Manchester, England for December 27th and have a husband and three kids that are looking forward to going too.

    Help I am the manager of 14 women of all cultures but the only one I can't get along with is the one directly below me who is Filipino. Basically, I am needing respect and trust and I can't get this from this woman. Tells me she doesn't come to work to make friends and not to call her either on her off hours (I normally don't but once in a while I may have a question). This conflict bothers me a lot so if anyone knows anything about the Filipino culture and how I can adapt if would be great. Thanks.
