Help? I Don’t Know What To Do.?

So here’s the situation, and I apologize in advance for the long question but a best answer will be chosen, well worth your time! I have always loved dogs, and when I was 8 my family got my very first one. She was a very expensive little chihuahua puppy and I (admittedly) didn’t take the best care of her. I was 8, and didn’t understand anything about training a puppy yet, I mean I was even scared to let her meet another dog because I thought they would hurt her. Long story short we were left with a chihuahua without proper socialization or training, and my mom still puts it off as my fault. Which would make since if we had gotten the dog recently (I’m 17), but I was 8, for god’s sake give me a break. My dilemma is now that last year around Christmas I finally got my very own Christmas puppy! Boy was it the happiest day of my life, and the dog (Tessa), continues to be the happiest thing in my life. She was listed as a Border Collie/Lab at a local shelter, but it is apparent she is a Border Collie/Pit Bull now. The dog is my life, I have taken her to more obedience classes then I can count on both hands, she is an exceptional animal. CGC certified, quite the agility star, and a favorite of everyone that knows her. I can honestly say that she is the one of two (I have another dog, we’ll get to that later) of the best things in my life. I did Junior year online this year because I am a competitive equestrian and all the absences for shows got complicated, so she’s always there to make my days a little less lonely. About 6 months ago I adopted another puppy, Shiah, who is now a 1 year old border collie. She is also CGC certified, an agility competitor, and a registered therapy dog. Again, they are both completely my responsibility. I take all credit, along with all accidents, and all of their necessities as my daily job. Training them has been one of the most rewarding things in my life! I have a love for training animals, but being able to have them with me all the time has truly been an amazing experience. Yes I still have friends, a family (a rather crappy one sometimes), etc, but they are the two things I never wish to rid myself of for even a day. I cannot imagine life without them.
Now for the real dilemma – the first time I left my first dog, Tessa, I went to camp for two months. She remains to be different then when I left still to this day, with a new-found fear of people (something of which we are still working on to this day to build her confidence on). Not sure how this came to be, not sure I’ll ever understand, but I take responsibility for having left her for so long. The second time I left (I had Shiah now too), it was for 10 days over Christmas break. The second day after I was gone Shiah had gotten into chocolate and had an emergency visit to the vet to induce vomiting. The 5th day into my trip I got some worse news, Tessa had cut her front and back left paw on something in the back yard and was at the vet for surgery. Turns out on the front food she only cut tissue, but on the back she cut into a tendon, needing to be sedated and off her feet for the next couple of weeks. By the time I got back both dogs were in pretty poor shape, my mom having sedated not only Tessa (who had the prescription), but Shiah as well. Man was I furious! That she would drug my dog to make life easier on her, blah I can’t even get in to that at the moment. All I can say is the whole event seemed careless to me, and I am secretly a little mad at my Mom for not keeping a closer eye on them. Anyways I’m a Junior in high school, and as you may be putting together I leave for college at the end of next year. What in the world do I do with my dogs? The purpose of the long messages above was to get two points across, the dogs are my life and I don’t feel safe leaving them at home. Do I go to the extent of going to a community college for 2 years so I can opt out of the dorms? Do I suck it up and leave the dogs at home? Do I attend a college (I’ve found 2) that have a pet friendly dorm (note- I could only take one, sigh). Do I attempt to opt out of the dorms but attend the college I want to? What are your suggestions, and am I being ridiculous about now wanting to leave them home? Please help, I’m not sure what to do, and thank you so much for your time.

Is There A Point In Pressing Charges?

I worked at my last job for about 3 months. The entire time i worked there one of my bosses was very sexually forward with me. Saying things like “Lets go down stairs and you can give me head.” Or “I just want to F*** you so bad.” Lots of things like this. It made me super uncomfortable and i told him it was inappropriate. There were a couple occasions where we’d sit on a couch together and he’d grab my hand and put it on his lap or stomach. And i didn’t stop him. I was worried about losing my job or having drama at work so i didn’t do anything. And then recently my other boss began being very verbally abusive. I’d do little things like drop a glass or count money wrong and he’d ask me “Are you F***ing Retarded?” or “Are you a F***ing Idiot?”. It has caused a lot of stress in my life, and I’m investigating the possibility that i might have DPD (Depersonalization Disorder), and stress can make DPD worse. I had to quit my job because of my bosses, i couldn’t handle not standing up against them, And i did tell both of them it bothered me. I even cried a couple times at work. But it persisted.
They’ve also asked me to evade taxes for them and have gotten mad at me when i don’t evade the taxes. There is evidence and witnesses that could back me up n court on all 3 fronts.
So my question is can i get money if i press charges on them and how much. Or is there any point?

What To Do If Manager Favors Coworker Because Of Race? ?

I work in an Indian restaurant where only 2 of my coworkers are not Indian. My manager constantly favors the Indian workers over those of us who are of a different ethnicity. Me and my Hispanic coworker are constantly accused of being lazy or even stupid, while our Indian coworker really IS lazy and no one says anything to him. When something goes wrong the boss blames us instead of looking at the Indian employee, even though he is supposed to be the “manager” (we don’t have a heirarchy, so I guess he’s like a shift leader). Our Indian coworker is verbally abusive to us and has a history of making inappropriate sexual remarks, asking about our wages, etc.. He is constantly on his cell phone, but we are yelled at if we are seen even checking the time. He gets hour-long luch breaks while we are told that we have 10 minutes to eat, which isn’t even legal given that we work 10-hour days. Our boss has said that the same rules apply to everyone, but our Indian coworker is still oviously favored.
What can I do about this? We’ve tried talking to the boss about it, but he doesn’t do anything and the more we bring it up he accuses us of complaining, saying things like, “You had this same complaint last week.” But nothing changes! This must be against the law somehow! What can we do?!

Messed Up… Big Time?

I had a work party the other day and I made out with my boss. Yeah, I know it’s bad but he’d been flirting with me with months on end and after having a few drinks, I just smooched him elaborately on the lips, lol. Do you think my job’s on the line if I don’t apologize or should I just pretend nothing happened? He’s married… Not my responsibility, but still.

Does This Guy Like Me, Or Is He Just Being Nice?

So this guy started at my workplace not too long ago. I forgot how we even started talking. But, everytime we see each other at work. He will always be first to start our conversations. I mean I start some conversations between us too, but he mostly starts them. When I’m doing something, he randomly calls my name and asks me random questions about work, or how he feels. Like how tired he is, and what he’s going to do the next day, small things like that. And he’s always so happy and he smiles alot when we talk. He doesn’t really make eye contact, and there are time when he does, but they’re not long. Also, one time, he was cleaning his register, which he was behind me, and my back was towards him, all the sudden, he sprayed me with his cleaning spray. I started laughing, and asked him in a joking way “did you spray me”? And he started smiling, and joked around trying to deny he did it.
And two days ago, I came into work to check my new schedule, and as I was talking and laughing with my cousin. Somehow I looked his way, and he stared at me. Idk if it was just an accident where he was trying to look up but accidently looked our way, or something to that matter, but it felt weird. Also, he randomly wished me a happy early birthday, and I thanked him and asked him how he knew, then he told me my cousin told him. But you know, he could of told me happy birthday tomorrow because we both work, and its my actual day. So idk why he told me early for.
Does this mean he finds interest in me, or is he just being nice? Thank you, I’d appreciate it. I’m just confused on the truth, and I don’t wanna assume anything. =)
