Teenagers Profiled for Shoplifting?

Teenagers Profiled for Shoplifting?

I’m in high school and I hate it when my friends and I go to stores and feel like we get followed around in the store like we’re shoplifters. We don’t do that kind of thing and I get tired of feeling like we’re getting profiled. We’ve talked about saying something to them (the store clerks), and sort of messing with them, but should we? I don’t want to get in trouble for something I wouldn’t do anyway? You know, your question reminds me of a time when my kids were teenagers and would come home from shopping, and tell me that they felt like they were being profiled. They would get followed around and watched in stores. Like you and your friends, they weren’t shoplifting, but they felt like just because they were teenagers, they were being targeting and watched closely. They talked about how this made them feel angry, frustrated and unfairly treated. I’m sure you and your friends feel kind of the same way. It doesn’t feel fair to be looked at like you’re a criminal when you aren’t doing anything wrong. If it makes you feel any better, recently, I felt like I was being carefully watched for shoplifting at a sidewalk sale. The clothes racks were sitting outside the store so close to the parking lot that it would have been easy to grab a few things and stash them in my car. While looking through the racks, I noticed a store clerk pretending to be shopping close to me while keeping an eye on me. I chuckled to myself because, like you, I don’t shoplift (never have, never will…probably something to do with those Catholic school nuns and the possibility of going to hell…), but I quickly just told myself that she was simply

Intimate with Co-worker?

Intimate with Co-worker?

I recently left a job where a coworker and I were intimate. I saw her out last night with another guy. I still have feelings for her but don’t know if I should pursue her. How can I let her know how I feel? Have you tried the communication style of just straight out telling her how you feel? No games, no strings attached, no beating around the bush; but just telling her openly and honestly that you have feelings for her? The tricky part here would seem to be that you saw her out with this other guy. Did it look like they were on a date, or just friends? Either way, you will have to decide for yourself if your feelings for her are strong enough to weather a possible rejection, or move forward with a relationship. Either prospect can be scary. If she does decide to go out with you again you may want to define your relationship. Is this just a “friends with benefits” pairing or do you both agree to move forward in an exclusive relationship? Having “The Talk” sooner versus later seems to be in order. Embrace your Personal Power with Life Coaching~ Are your feelings for this person strong enough to warrant taking the steps to define your relationship? How will you make a plan for telling her how you feel? What will your response be if she rejects you? How will you move your relationship forward if she wants to date? How can you improve the communication you have in relationships?

Work Hard but Can’t Get Ahead?

Work Hard but Can't Get Ahead?

What can I do about the fact that no matter how hard I work I can’t ever seem to get ahead? In these difficult economic times, I hear this all too often… so many people have lost their jobs and are struggling either to find a job or make do in a new job where their pay and benefits have been cut. Lean times come and go (or at least I remain hopeful that better times will again find us), so accept the tried and true saying of “this too shall pass”. Hold on to that hope, but also be practical in taking action to better your chances for getting ahead. Sit down and take the time to objectively analyze why you seem to be working hard, only to be left with so little in your bank account at the end of each month. If you don’t have the facts, you don’t have a starting point from which to better your situation, so write down everything using “Money In” and “Money Out” columns. Be honest with yourself in looking at whether you are overspending for your income. Case studies I’ve heard of people who’ve gotten themselves out of debt, all carried the discipline of closely monitoring the “In” and “Out” columns. Remember too that getting ahead isn’t all about watching your spending~it’s also about looking for a better job, taking a second job, or asking for that long overdue raise (Yes! Even in this economy good employees are getting raises!). Another thing you should seriously consider is going back to school for the training that will bring you a better paying job. Talk with career counselors at your local colleges and vocational schools. They can tell you which employers are hiring right now. I just heard how welders in training

Eeew! Embarrassing Text?

Eeew! Embarrassing Text?

I sent a text out to the wrong person and am dying of embarrassment. I sent the text to a man I work with who has the same first name as my husband. I didn’t realize until after the text was sent that it went to the wrong person. The text I sent was complaining to my husband about a vaginal itch I’d been suffering with, asking him to pick something up from the pharmacy on his way home from work. I am dying of embarrassment, and soon will be seeing this person face-to-face, but don’t know what to say. He didn’t respond to my text. I’m guessing he realizes it wasn’t meant for him. What shall I do? Ouch! I feel your pain! I have had a text go out to the wrong person on several occasions, but thankfully I wasn’t discussing my vagina with a co-worker! There are stories about these happenings all over the Internet. There are whole websites dedicated to smart phone autocorrect mess-ups, and texts like yours that got sent to the wrong person. Recently in the news, there was a story about a young college girl who texted a sexy post-coital picture, with a telling caption, to her boyfriend…but, the message ended up going to her Father. Cringe. One can only hope her Dad didn’t cut her out of her college fund account! Getting back to your itchy vagina…since he didn’t respond, I agree with you that he probably has no intention of addressing this, and neither should you. The next time you see him don’t even bring it up. Treat him like you always have. Do your best to put on a brave face and a smile and act like the text never happened. A non-response will always keep him guessing. Maybe he’ll
