getting my checking account number stolen...finding out these people took out like a thousand bucks...dealing with that...but getting it all taken care of in one day..i have a new checking and savings account on the way and cool new M&M checks..
 
so i guess bad things can turn around in one day..
 
my other gripe is really minor but its the fact that my bag to go home is super heavy.

i went to a very small high school that really can't be called a school, but a family.  An illustration of that is the fact that whenever I go back there I receive 20-30 hugs and many more "HEY!!!"s.  Anyway, my gripe is that last night I went to the graduation there -- those kids were sophomores when I graduated so I still knew all 22 of them -- and nobody from my class was there except for me and my brother who came later!  I was talking to a guy from the class that graduated a year before me, and he was the only one there from his class.  The 2 classes that graduated before us?  Nobody from either.  So it was sad... I wanted to see everyone who used to be my best best best friends... I guess the alternative of "only" seeing the entire faculty and a bunch of other people i was friends with all through high school isn't that bad though...

Alright...gripe and frustration....having to work in an insanely busy children's store with practically no break dealing with kids with no patience, parents that think that's ok....and oh so much more....I'm so glad that day is done!  Hopefully it doesn't rain for a while, so people go outside and play instead of shopping!

OK, so this isn't really a gripe but sort of a query.  And I think I need some advice and everyone checks this bored frequently so maybe y'all can give me your 2 cents.
 
So my former boss asked me out yesterday.  He was my manager until last week when he moved to another store (same chain) but we still work together ocassionally as equals.  We've kind of had this casual-flirty relationship, but I always held back because (a) he was my boss and (b) he had a girlfriend.  Well, now he's (a) not my boss and (b) not with his gf anymore.  So we had an extra-extra-extra flirty day yesterday and I drove him home and we made a date for Tuesday night.  And I'm kind of wondering if it's weird.  Because, as previously mentioned, he's my former manager and recently unattatched.  And, oh yeah, he's 32 years old.  I'm 18.  He knows how old I am, and I know it kind of gets to him.  Please, give advice.  How weird is this?  
 
So it still fits with the thread, my frustration is that I don't know what to do.

Hmm ... honestly, my instinct is that it is fine, but I think you are going to find some more conservative voices on this forum than mine. Or not, we'll see. But I see a couple of issues: 1) work ethics, and 2) personal ethics. Regarding #1: since he is no longer supervising you, and when you do work together it is as equals, then there is no ethical sketchiness that I can see. You might want to read your company's policy about dating (if they have one). Don't want to put your or his job in jeopardy. Regarding #2: you are both single and interested in each other. No problems there. The one thing that gives me pause is the fact that you are 18 and he is 14 years older. But I have read your posts for awhile and I know that you are very mature for 18. As long as you feel comfortable and safe with this situation, then go for it. But please also go into it realistically, knowing that he probably has quite a bit more sexual experience than you do.
 
That's my $0.02! Good luck!
 
Edit: there's one other thing that strikes me.  Are the two of you really truly "equals" at work?  You are an 18 year old girl and he is a 32 year old man and you have the exact same job?  I'm just asking because sometimes those power dynamics can be very subtle.

Thank you much Liv! Honesty and clarity. Perfect. So the company (which is really and truly a Mom-and-Pop business) has no actual rules about dating, but there would be problems if he was my manager, just because it wouldn't be fair to the other people who work under him. But that problem is cleared up.
 
And I totally see your point about "equals." At Top Dog, you are either a manager or a regular employee. He no longer has the "manager" title, but he has worked there much much longer than me, and he has some superiority over me. As in, he does most of the cooking and I take orders, get drinks, etc. But thinking about it, there is still an inequality there. But I think I can deal with that as long as it stays at work and nowhere else.
 
And yes, he has quite a bit more sexual experience than me. Like 14 years more. But I will cross that bridge when I get to it.

I say go for it.  When I was a manager at FYE I never officially "dated" any of the associates but most of them were around my age so a bunch of times I'd end up hanging out with some of them outside work.  Anyway, I don't think it's unprofessional or anything, especially since you're now equals.  The age thing is a judgment call in my opinion.  To me age isn't that big a deal-- my circle of friends varies in age from about 13 to about 33, and they all seem the same to me.
