Everytime I am told this that it has nothing to do with my leave.

In regards to insurance I am 22 and my mom is able to add me to her insurance only thing is that I have to go to school. To be on her insurance. I am waiting to see what happens but my work is getting hard with me being treated badly.
I'd quit. I was in a similar situation with the quota deal and they had a step by step process written up for termination for those failing to meet quota. I didn't take the job under those conditions, wasn't going to kill myself to meet quota, so I left. I did not even try for UI, as their process was so well defined I didn't think I'd have a chance at it. It would have been termination for cause in my case and that damn company would have found a way to not pay it.

Fortunately, you have an opportunity where I did not. Grab it and run with it ASAP.

When you go to live in someone else's home you must abide by their rules and desires and it is very selfish of us to think that we can have everything all our way, especially when you are relying on the finances of someone else. These kind of situations always come at a price and that price is, you are subject to the whims and rules on whoever is providing you with room and board.
I totally agree!

My issue is with the idea she'd actually see going to mom's as an option without her pet.

I guess I'm one of those people who feel a pet is for life.

Could be wrong, but that's the way I read it!
Yeah I was kind of wondering that too. I hope this is the case and she's not actually putting her daughter in a position of giving up her pet.

lol Don't judge a book by its cover, my cousin went through a period where her typing made her look like a ghetto hillbilly and I know she's anything BUT.

Some peoples' typing is far different from how they are in life. Just look at Cher's tweets on Twitter...

Aside from your assumption of her literacy, that is solid advice. (If she can keep the pet!) It's up to her, obviously. But I'm just saying if it were me personally, no matter how rough times got, leaving my pet would not be an option.

Cher's tweets on Twitter? I doubt if she even finished high school. Bad example to make your point.

Have you heard her speak in interviews? Very intelligent, wise, and funny woman.

She didn't become and remain rich by being dumb.

But anyway... back to the topic...

I don't care if a person has a Master's Degree, if they're slim on manners, I don't want them around...

I have talked with my mom and family in regards to my dilemma of what to do. Will I have decided based on family suggestions and advice. Thats it is best to plan to move back home, and to continue to the pursuit of going to college once I am back home. I have already started the process of getting ready to move. In regards to my kitty cat I have plans for her since the airline will not let her travel since she is one of the breeds that are known to have issues with flying. So she is being given to a family friend who took care of her when she was first adopted, if I could bring her my step dad doesnt like pets but my mom said that my step dad will think about for the future.

My mom is helping me moved but we argeed once I have moved and working again that I would pay back the money for airline ticket.

I'm glad that you have made that decision - and it sounds like your kitty will have a good home. Good luck with school and finding another job.
