I have been on two interviews for a job that I really want badly and also filled out the company applications during one of the interviews. On the application, it asked me for references. I listed my three names, but without knowing it, had provided an old number for one of my references. About a week later, the HR contact called me and said that he tried to call one of my references, but the number I provided was out of services. I reached out to that person and got an updated phone number and gave it to the HR person about 30 minutes later. It has now been three days later and they still have not called any of my references (my references will call me after they are contacted). I am curious as to why they had enough interests to make the initial call, but have not tried to call anyone since. I keep going back and forth in my head saying that they are just busy and will call them when they get do it, but on the other hand, I say "you blew it by giving a bad phone number and they have moved on to someone else." Do I have anything to worry about? How long should I wait until I contact the HR person for an update? Calling references normally means you are close to an offer, correct? Or, at least on a very short list?

I was told it was between me and one other person who was having his 3rd interview the following day. I followed up with an email on Friday to see if I could get an update on the status of the position and received no response. I then followed up with a phone call to the HR person this afternoon. When she picked up the call she seemed happy to hear from me, but quickly said that she was in the middle of a meeting and would call me back. She never did call me back. I find it hard to believe that she would have picked up my call in the middle of a meeting! Things are not looking good. My heart tells me that I have not gotten a definite "no" yet and it is possible they are still deciding. But, my head tells me that they have decided on the other person and are avoiding me until his background, drug screen, etc comes back before telling me. My question is this: What do you think is right, my head or heart.

I am a white male and have been dating a Hispanic woman for over a year. We moved in together about 3 months ago and I have noticed something that seems very weird to me. My gf's son is 14 and still wants to sleep with his mommy every night. He is also afraid of the dark and has to have his room light and the hall light on all night. He also will not be upstairs by himself during the day for too long either. The kid is very immature for his age (IMO) and it is starting to cause stress on our relationship. I have two boys that I get on the weekends who are 7 and 8 and have long ago outgrown the need to sleep with a parent. They are very close to getting rid of their night lights as well and I have tried to use this as an example that it is time for her son to move on as well. She insists that this is normal and is a cultural thing among Hispanic mothers. Is this true? My question to her is when is the age when you tell him he needs to sleep in his bed alone? 15? 16? 17? I mean, she sleeps in his bed with him every night and I sleep in our bed alone. I don’t thing there is anything sexual going on, but it does seem odd to me. I tell her, would you think it was weird if I had a daughter who was 14 and I was sleeping with her in her bed everynight? She has no response. I am really getting pissed off about it and she does not see this an issue. Instead she tells me my kids are too "independent!" Oh, and by the way, she is now pregnant and I am wondering how this is going to change things too. I love her very much, but don’t know how much more I can take. He is a good kid and we get along well for the most part, but she treats him like he is 5, so he acts like it a lot. Also, she insists on bringing him with us everywhere we go even if it’s just a 15 minute trip to the store. We never have any time alone, ever. Is this the norm in a Hispanic home and I just need to chill or should I be worried?

I am in the process of going through a divorce and owe my ex approx \$2,000 in back child support from earlier this year. I was supposed to be paying \$50 per week on it, but was not able to because I could not afford it and a place to live. I have since gotten a 2nd job and now have been paying off her a little at a time. Three weeks ago we went to court and the judge said that I was in contempt of court for not paying the \$50 per week and if I could not work out an agreement with her lawyer I could be facing jail time. Me and her lawyer met (I cant afford my own lawyer any longer) and agreed to continue this for four weeks to see if I could take a hardship withdrawal from my 401K (which i can not) and to see if I would show good faith in making payments. The judge agreed to this. We are due to go back to court on 10/14. By the time we go back to court I will have paid her \$600 of the \$2,000 I owe and still be current in my payments. However, that still leaves me with a balance of \$1,400 i owe her. What are the chances he will send me to jail? I am hoping that now I am showing i am making payments he will give me another 4 weeks and continue it again. What would be the point of locking me up, thus causing me to lose both jobs? Is it the norm for judges to lock a person up in a similar situation? It makes no sense because if I lose both jobs I wil not have money for her or me! I am nervous about this. Any advice would be much appreciated. By the way, I live in RI if that matters at all.
