If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation. We have in the past and still do appreciate any input that you offer this forum. But critical input and/or judgmental postings towards the staff will result in you getting banned.

          I also babysit a little 8 year old girl after school during the week and also full time in the summer.
          I have a lot of respect for the women who have full time jobs while being mothers!! I don't know how you do it!

              I am a compliance auditor for a large mortgage company.

              Basically I review docs and calculations to make sure we are in compliance with government regulations. If we aren't I pull the chain on the closing. So, I take away a lot of commission from loan officers and realtors...

              They call mad, I argue for about an hour over all kinds of different laws, and then tell them sorry it is against the law, you can't close it unless you change this or that...

              I am corporate, so... what I say goes...

              Funny thing happend today, I was listening to a conference call that was happening between branches, and a person actually was talking about corporate, and called us corporate idiots... apparently they weren't informed that we were all asked to listen in... nothing like calling the Vice President of Compliance an idiot, and then all of us auditors too!!! We will be looking VERY close at her loans from now on... LOL!

                  I have been a registered nurse for 3.5 years, before that I was an LPN, have been a nurse for 10 years in August. We are not well paid in my small Arkansas community, but our problems ultimately started because DH doesn't think he should go without if someone will give him the credit to get it. Before I even knew he had a cc, he was almost 7000 in debt, and the snowball just kept getting bigger.
                  Yes, I could go somewhere bigger and make more $$, but the cost of living would be higher, and my kids would have to change schools.

How I wish I was working for someone and getting a it is now I am billing clerk and just myself and husband, can't afford salary for me.

                              • jane taylor,

                                YOU stick around with us...................

                                Believe me, many of us can us some counseling during the bankruptcy process.....

                                Insanity tries to "claim" us............

                                We all can use some "help" from a friend now and then.....

                                We all try to support each other thru this mess and survive it....


                                "It's amazing the paths that our feet sometimes follow in life".

                                My suggestions are from "personal experience" and research only. Do not consider this as legal advice. Each bankruptcy case is different.
