  1. Girlfriend recently started a new job. Yesterday the company celebrated all of the October birthdays with a group gathering in the break room with treats. Somebody handed her a card to sign.

  2. Ugh. Sorry, man. If it makes you feel any better, my ex said to my very young kids: "Don't listen to daddy. He's being a (female dog) right now." and then another time: "I hope when you grow up you don't marry a jerk like your father."

Something like "...be part of the girls lives because they need you, I can raise them" can be interpreted in several ways. Maybe she's looking at 50/50 custody. Or maybe she's looking at 95/5 where you see your kids for dinners here and there and that's her idea of you being part of their lives. At least she's opening up communication on this so keep talking, asking for clarifications and making proposals. Best of luck to you. ETA: Just saw GM's post ("It's a Trap!"). My point about findin
  7. Not the same, but I know a high-tech company that only hires people with a 3.3 GPA or higher from college...even if they've been in the workforce for years, or even decades. Rejected an outstanding sales manager candidate with an amazing track record because his GPA from 20+ years ago was 3.1.
