True Love

weather: drizzling
outside: 7°C
mood: calm
How have I managed to stay together with userinfoA Guy who has forgotten/missed Valentine's Day for the 11th year in a row?

He didn't get pissy about driving with me to the ER, in the ice and snow, close to midnight, to see my Mom and be available for my Dad, who rode in the ambulance with her, which meant he had no ride home. And he went out there with me again when we found out that the paperwork couldn't all get through for the hospital to provide Mom dinner for the first night of her stay, so we had to make something and take it to her.

He was understanding and supportive enough to be okay with me removing my engagement/wedding rings for job interviews back in mid-2001.

He's always happy as a clam to see me after being apart for even a few hours. This was something my Mom noticed and told me about a month ago.

Some time ago, we were in a quasi-lineup to get food and I was in front of him. I took something and moved on. From behind me, he said, "Did you want this piece?"

Me: *giggle* If I wanted it, don't you think I would have taken it? =D

Him: Sometimes you don't take what you want because you think I want it. You're all silly like that.

It's things like this, all year around, that more than make up for it.

I may not have been considered if the potential employer thinks I might have to bugger off on Maternity Leave soon. It would be near impossible to fight it if it did happen. =)

There's a relatively high probability that a young wife is going to be a young mother soon. If you're legally required to provide mat. leave and a position for her to come back to afterwards, you might think twice about hiring her in the first place. There will be two shuffles in the project teams, one when she leaves and one when she comes back, both of which would be a hassle. And if you're a technology company trying to keep afloat in the economic downturn, the lost time/productivity weighs more heavily in the decision making.

I wasn't going to chance it.

Either way, I wouldn't want to work for them.

There's some truth in that. But OTOH, money talks.
