  • Can banks clear a cheque for an account that is overdrawn?

    Some fraudsters got a hold of my account and paid in a cheque in my name (forged) of the amount £9500. My account was already overdrawn by almost £1000 (I have a student overdraft limit of £1000). Was it right for the bank to let the cheque clear?

  • Why are there people with bachelors degree who are working in low wage jobs or no job at all?

    Best answer: Because they got a degree in a field which employers (rightly or wrongly) put little value on. Maybe there are lots of them? Marine biology is a field for example which graduate far more people each year than there are jobs. For example, there are few jobs for people with a degree in 14th century French poetry... show more
    Best answer: Because they got a degree in a field which employers (rightly or wrongly) put little value on. Maybe there are lots of them? Marine biology is a field for example which graduate far more people each year than there are jobs.

    For example, there are few jobs for people with a degree in 14th century French poetry that pay a 6 figure salary when starting out. On the other hand, tech companies do pay that for new hires with the right degree.

    < Even a Liberal Arts BA used to almost guarantee a decent job of some sort. >

    Not for a long time. I graduated nearly 40 years ago and at that time, people were being told liberal arts BA degrees were having a hard time finding employment with them.

He’s not talked to me about this instead he tells my co/workers , idk how I feel about that , that’s what I want to talk about , it bothers me when he addresses certain things about me to my co/workers , it feels like he’s gossiping about me , I can just tell by the look on his face but it then puts me in a emotional mood and they talk about how I seem like I’m in a bad mood . When he does that I feel he has some sorts team here and I’m just there , he can be stand off ish towards me at most times. Then he wonders why I’m being the way I am so distant because I don’t know how to be , I feel when I’m okay with him he’s not okay with me . When I’m in a room multiple times he’s gone in after I have left the room . I love my job I love being there , he’s a nice person but so weird towards me .

  • Will I be drug tested at new job?

    Best answer: Testing is entirely at the employer's discretion and no one here can know for certain what this specific employer's intentions are.

    Best answer: Testing is entirely at the employer's discretion and no one here can know for certain what this specific employer's intentions are.

    It is NOT safe to assume that just because some positions specifically mention testing that any position that doesn't will not be tested.

    It is entirely possible that they could ask you at an interview whether or not you can pass a test. If they do ask you, here are your options for responses & outcomes:

    1) You can tell the truth and not get the job because you're on drugs.
    2) You can lie, get tested and not get the job because not only are you on drugs, you're also a liar.
    3) You can lie, get lucky that the employer does not test you, and then deal with the cloud hanging over you that you could be tested and lose your job at any moment.

    Of course you could also just grow up and quit smoking...

    Whichever one of those options is most appealing is entirely up to you.

  • Crazy roommate situation: we have a girl who has sex with the door open. It is visible in the kitchen. One roommate says it is illegal.?

    We can see the whole thing, and it is unavoidable. She even does it in the bathroom with the door open. One roommate says it is indecent exposure, etc., we can call the police, but another says it is perfectly legal but just rude. This is an off-campus apartment. It is like living in a porno flick.

    So I worked for Best buy for about 5 years or so. Christmas was coming and many of my friends and family knew that I had a discount. They asked for suggestions for gifts and other necessities and I willingly offered them my discount. A couple months forward I was approached about my discount and asked if I was misusing it. I told them I was gifted majority of the things I ve purchased and they asked me if I ever sold anything. I did purchase products that were beyond the 30 day return policy so I had no choice but to sell them as Best buy wouldn t accept them. I wrote a statement about both and i was later terminated. Now 4 months forward Dyson had a job listing to work for as a representative. I took the offer and realized that I was going to be working within a Best buy. Couple of weeks have passed and eventually someone from management recognized me and told me to leave the store. I was told that I cant work for other companies that work with Best buy even though it wasn t stated. After my management tried to talk to them Dyson had no choice but to relieve me because Best buy refused to allow me to work within their Stores. The question is, is this within their legal rights? Just want some confirmation. Thank you.

    Best answer: I have done this. It was a couple who were married just after we all moved in together. They occupied one large bedroom, me the smaller one. (They were international students, the male in a Ph. D. program; oddly, the lady never spoke to me the entire time! She pretended not to understand English, but others told me she understood English and spoke it perfectly! It never bothered me, or became an issue).

    As with any shared space, there is always a risk, especially when sharing with friends- many good friendships are ruined once they share living space. Are they mature, responsible, emotionally stable? They could argue, or if a situation arises it will most definitely be 2 against 1.

    Ask yourself and each other the questions, 1.) What hours do you sleep? 2). What kind of noise do you find acceptable and objectionable? 3) What temperatures do you prefer, especially in winter (people often neglect this important issue!) 4) Bathroom and kitchen sharing, how much time do you use and when? 5) Guests policy. what is acceptable and unacceptable? 6) Discuss parking arrangements, especially if there is a driveway.

    A lot of bad roommate situations can be avoided by answering and discussing these questions among yourselves before signing a lease and /or moving in.

    Triangulated relationships can be difficult, especially with couples. Mature people can work out well, immature, not so well.

    We've lived in this house for about 40 years now. It is in a residential neighborhood in the city. We own our home and have seen a lot of neighbors come and go, mostly in rental properties surrounding us. The neighborhood has gone downhill some over the years. In a year or two, we're planning to move further out to another area to get away from city nonsense. So there are some people that moved into the house behind us at some point and built this odd deck with just wood slats across the top, but no roof. They put a bunch of colorful lights above the deck and I guess sit out there and drink on the weekends or something. Our back yard is about 80 feet long or so and about 70 feet wide. I mow the back yard every couple of weeks or so because it doesn't grow that fast. The last 20-30 of our back yard has pine trees that drop a lot of pine combs, pine straw and various sticks that fall down. It is impossible to get them all up to mow each time. I mow that very back 20-30 feet area maybe one a month, if even that. This guy claims the "dust is getting on their table" or something on their back deck and that mowing "disturbs their party" or whatever he's talking about. It takes me about 30 minutes to mow that once per month. Obviously, this is pretty childish. I don't control the dust in the air.

    Best answer: Your sister is right to a limited extent. Other factors come into play. Your income is one. If you don't have the income to pay the loan, then your score and credit history is meaningless. Do you have any money in a savings account? You might be able to get a secured credit card (you deposit $300-$500 with the card issuer as collateral). Use the card VERY SPARINGLY (<$100/mo) and pay it off in full every month. You don't even have to use it every month. The collateral is not to be used to make your card payment if you fall short - that would make matters worse. History only has to be 6-12 months, not years. That will be a start.
