How do you deal with too much advice? so many people telling you 14 different ways to do things? I’m starting to question if these people even view me as an adult at this point. I know everyone is just trying to be helpful in regards to my move, but seriously, I am a grown adult, I have common sense, I think I can figure it out. I’ve got my parents telling me how to do things, pack it this way, leave on this day blah blah blah. Then I have Mark reminding me that he’s moved several times already so I should do everything the way he would do it. People at work flat out telling me I shouldn’t move until I get a ring. That leads me to my joy at work. I have a co-worker who doesn’t feel she needs to put in any effort and it’s becoming a burden on the rest of us. She was “talked to” last week and her response to this, rather than being mature and owning up to her shortcomings, is to act like a petulant child. If I didn’t need the money for moving/etc., I would seriously walk out the door with my things and never look back. I need a mental health vacation or a punching bag at the very least. Ugh.
