Just a little (link) love: piglets and pitbulls edition

CAREER + MONEY THINGS

I recently discovered No Nonsense Landlord, this was a great introduction into a near-fulltime Landlord’s life.

NY Times: Part Time Schedules, Full Time Headaches
This story was preposterous. I worked retail to put myself through school and before that, I helped my parents run their retail business. As an employee, I’m more grateful than ever that my employers, whatever their failings, didn’t make it a point to torment us like this. This makes no business sense! We had relatively low turnover when all other things were equal, and a big part of that was their willingness to accommodate school schedules with consistent shifts, not punitive scheduling. It made for a lot less time waste for the scheduler, too. From the employer POV I can’t begin to understand what benefit comes from jerking around your employees like this.

FUN THINGS

Maryam warned us but I haaaad to click through anyway. I’m an absolute sucker for organizational, stationery, and packing supplies and resisting this is basically going to end me.

INTERESTING THINGS

A mortician on death and handling bodies (Wired)

On making kids more resilient

It’s the 30th anniversary of The Cosby Show. I fondly remember it for the parenting lessons and particularly Clair Huxtable.

    A great set of links!

    Baby goats are always amusing. 🙂

    That mortician is fascinating. Like her, I’d like to be buried in a natural state, or perhaps be used in research at a body farm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Tennessee_Anthropological_Research_Facility

    The landlord blog is fascinating to read.
