My sister started working for the post office in January. A few weeks ago, she fell and hurt her knee walking up some steps delivering mail. I told her to go in, she said she couldn't because they told her if she was injured or involved in any accidents on the job during her first 90 days she would be fired. This includes being bitten by a dog, if someone hits her in her mail carrier jeep, and any injuries.
Today, she slipped on a muddy driveway and broke her ankle. They told her she would be allowed light duty in the office(she lives in Vancouver, works in Portland, broke her right ankle and drives a stick) until her ankle heals so they can pay the worker's comp claim, but advised her after it was healed she would likely be fired.
Ok, as far as I know, isn't it illegal to penalize an employee for on the job injuries? Anyone have any input? This just doesn't seem right.
My friend got her ticket to see the Killers at the Roseland acouple cays ago, we were gunna go to celebrate my 16th birthday. When I went to get mine yesterday they sold out.

I am a US citizen w/o a SSN(i dont want one either) and it has been hell on earth trying to open a bank account. I have full legal backing that banks are not allowed to refuse to opeon the basis of my of SSN, but they are giving me the brush off because they dont want to deal with me.
Does anyone know of a good lawyer who can write a letter on legal letterhead for me? Since I know I have a legal ground to do this, its not shady at all, and I just need a little help to motivate the lawyers at the bank to get off their ass and look at what I am sending them.
I just want a checking account! sheesh. It really shouldn't be this difficult.
Thanks in advance!
Since the concept behind a SSN has come up recently (it is tax time, after all), how can I go about finding out if someone else is using my SSN? I have heard stories about people getting ahold of a SSN and using it for work, etc. but not being the actual owner of the number. Often times the victim does not know until it's too late. Anyone have any ideas as to how I can figure out if there's another name associated with my SSN?
I've already put a credit alert on my number, but I've heard that doesn't always solve the problem.
Hey guys - I know this is short notice, but I need someone with a truck/van/suv to help me move my mattress and box spring from SE to NE sometime tonight. I have help moving everything else but the bed won't fit in my friends truck. :(
I can buy beer, smoke you out, and/or give you gas money. Please respond if you think you can help (or call me as my computer may already be packed by the time you read this - 503-238-4569). Ask for Melissa.
I swear I see the strangest things in the Pearl. Recently, on the same day, While I was driving to work at way-too-early a.m., I saw a young guy bundled up with a scarf around the lower part of his face(ninja style) doing Tai Chi at a bus stop.
Later that day as I was leaving work I saw a man with a wild mane of shock-white hair wearing a wide lapeled, dark jacket driving a small flashy red convertible. Oh yeah.. he was also wearing an eye patch.
I love Portland
So a friend and I are planning on going to dinner tomorrow evening, and I'm having a hard time coming up with a place. I'm looking for somewhere with decent food for a good price that has a chatter-friendly atmosphere in proximity to PSU (we'll give it a 10 block radius). Any suggestions?

Ok guys, does anyone in here or does anyone know someone that knows how to fix cars? I need a tune up and I need my power steering fixed. My rack and pinon is shot and so is my power steering pump. Its a ford taurus if that helps. But I have a condition that makes it really hard for me to try to drive, especially with no power steering :(
Is it true there's a FEMALE version of the statue guy? If so, when and where does she work most of the time?
how come no one told me the bins moved?
if you haven't been yet the new place is kind of nicer and cleaner... for what it's worth...
If I wanted to go on a short hike this weekend with my dog, and get some beautiful scenery at the same time...where would you suggest I go? My dog is 10.5 months old and this would be her first real hike, so I need to keep it pretty simple to test her out. I just bought a new camera and was hoping to get out and get some pictures this weekend with it...so I am hoping to incorporate the two trips. Suggestions please???
anyone else got tickets for thursday nights debate between Howard Dean and Richard Pearle at the Schnitz?
Anyone care to chat for a while?
Update: Going to bed, thanks to those that said hello.
