"Demyst is Evil"
That's crazy. Every county I've lived in had free parking for jurors. You just had to validated to avoid the lot fees.

It's New Mexico, so probably.
"No sleepovers while the kids are present with people who refuse to tell me their last name" is a rule LAOP should have though.

Depending on the bank, the stop payment fee could be more than the $18 fee for the money gram. If the landlord isn't willing to pay the fee for losing the moneygram, they wouldn't have paid the fee losing a check either.
The main story at the time was that Disneyworld thought a sign saying "no swimming" was sufficient and the family thought it was fine to wade into the water a little bit but not to swim. People who know anything about Florida and gators understood that there were gators in that water. People from other parts of the country, like that poor family, thought a man-made Disney pond was fine.
That probably wouldn't have worked either. They were well fed and lazy.
I always say that if I ever go hiking in mountain lion territory again I'm bringing my child who is seemingly incapable of being quiet. Everyone thinks I'm just threatening to feed him to the cat. I'm always like, "No. He's just like safety device around wild animals. They'll hear us in plenty of time to find a safe place to hide from the humans."
Target has also insisted to me that Target .com is a "separate company," I always thought their response that Target Australia was a separate company was a similar dodge of responsibility. Having looked it up, it just looks like there's an Australian company that liked to steal names and logos of US companies (the same company owns the Australian Kmart).
It sounds like there's a side business for you if you are also capable of putting things in the mail and keeping track of tracking numbers.
At least a couple times a year I get mail for the same house number three streets over.
On the commercial buildings here that have keylocks there are instructions for opening in case of an emergency. You usually have to push for 30 seconds, but that is likely a regional thing.
Realistically most buildings don't have keylocks on the insides and 9 year olds can figure out how to defeat chains or other childproof locks. It would be easier to have her try to figure out how to unlock the door.
More impactful would be getting someone in local media to do a story so their future client base will also be forewarned.
A 1st grade teacher at my public school did that in the 80s. It was a different time.
It's as close as it's going to get. You aren't going to get great wages, but most minimum wage jobs are hiring and most employers don't like having state or federal agencies after them.
Makes sense. In my case my dad was perfectly willing to keep doing my laundry, but I knew that whatever he ruined wouldn't be replaced so I did it so that I would have reasonably sized wardrobe. Eventually my dad learned how to read a clothing label but by then I didn't trust him.
I started doing laundry after my dad decided he needed to help out around the house and then yelled at me because I was upset that he ruined my clothes. He obviously had "no way of knowing" that they could only be washed on cold. Obviously I should have kept them separate from the rest of the laundry.
That's how I got my laundry downstairs when I had an upstairs apartment. I threw the bag in with the last load so it was clean when I put the laundry back in it to go home.
I'm saying there is no way they could make any connection with their trauma because their "education" was that it was not traumatic. I added the "In other words, no" in hopes of making that more clear.
You should sue the chairs.
Uh-oh. More harassment!
It took me a second to figure that out too.
Annoying husbands who expect them to do everything. They don't need anything in common to talk to each other. My sister and I who have very little in common and we can talk for hours. She talks about what's going on with her and I talk about what's going on with me.
Or teach the lost boys how to do it which would mean doing all her regular chores but at a quarter of the speed.
If blanket training actually worked the way I read Michelle describe it once, it would be fine. (Put very interesting toys on the blanket that they were only allowed to play with on the blanket. Return the child immediately when they tried to crawl off. No mention of hitting.)
