    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    There's just one hitch. I need to fill out the I-9 and a) I cannot find my social security card and b) we're not sure about the birth certificate's record number

    do we have anyone here born in Maryland? I'd be grateful if we could compare notes.

    I'm not sure, but maybe @Xaquin was born here?

    If you need a copy of your birth certificate, any county health dept. should be able to help you!

    Eh, most of NH is fine. We all make fun of the freepers.
    Most of the population is along the border/highways to Mass, so don't let the random weirdness of backwoods NH scare you. It's definitely a low tax/services state, but it's pretty great for us opinionated weirdos.

    It's not so much the weirdos that scare me, it's the human-hungry bears.

    @Xaquin

    HR needs a "record number". We think this is stamped on (for me it's just above the 'birth no.' field), but due to some fading, there's some confusion.

    I need to know the format. Is it supposed to be an 8-digit number (ABCDEFGH) or is 2+5 (AB-CDEFG); if the latter, is the separation symbol a dash or a space?

    (also if you're in a position to confirm that we're looking at the right number in the first place, that would be swell)

    Thanks so much.

    @Tamin

    the file number should be your year of birth followed by 2 digits followed by 5 digits in this format

    xxxx-xx-xxxxx

    on my official copies, the number is located at the top right above the name box

    that's the only number with that format

    my original birth certificate from 1979 (cool kids never have the time) has a 3 digit number followed by a 5 digit number in this format

    xxx-xxxxx

    the last 7 digits of each format match

    They are both labeled 'file numbers' which is probably what you're looking for

    Happy to help and also kind of funny because I needed to open my safe today anyway =)

    How does a city like this exist and I didn't know about it until now? Setting aside the bears, I would have imagined this sort of anarchic takeover to have been met with the various federal powers, most especially the IRS.

    It wasn't anarchic. They just voted in people who slashed budgets and defunded programs into extinction. All above-board.

    Yeah this is really the key. It was all legal, except probably shooting and feeding bears is probably not, but since NH has an underfunded fish and game department, there's no money for them to bother about people mistreating the bears.

    A conversation I hate the idea of having to do for the first time but also get that I have to do it? Explaining to the minors employed at this place (highschool kids obviously) that sure, they're just trying to earn some cash to spend with their friends when they hang out so I don't hold so much against them when it comes to effort put into the job, BUT at the same time they have to understand that those of us that are adults working there rely on that job to have a roof over our heads. And it fucking sucks if someone is deliberately screwing the job up or otherwise making it harder on us. I can only imagine which of two reactions I'll get:
    - the reasonable minded kind
    - the "well now I hate you and am going to be vindictive" kind

    I mean hey I get it. If they look at their phone more than they should, whatever, they're 17 or 18, whatever. I'm not that much of a tool / playing the role of straight-man on the job that I'm gonna give them grief for it. One kid in particular though, holy shit he just does not stay at his assigned station ever and actively resents being urged to get back to it - no matter how polite or phrased-as-a-favor you put it to him.

    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    It sounds like it was only state and local taxes they were refusing and dismantling. Obviously they had no power to remove federal taxes.

    NH is still mostly run at the municipal level by volunteers and town meeting. At a town this small, you realistically only need 20-30 motivated people to meaningfully change a town.
    That said - towns in NH inherit most of their powers from the state, so someone can tell them to cut the shit if they need to.
    Also - it has less than 1500 people in the town, so not like this is something impacting a significant number.
    Part of the fabric of NH is a reasonably high amount of municipal control, but it's truly a double edged sword.

    When I see articles like that, I sometimes search the URL on reddit to see some of the comments. This one was too good not to share.
    Pressed by bears from without and internecine conflicts from within,

    Guarantee the author is still bitter that the editors wouldn’t let him keep “Pressed by ursine and internecine conflict...”

    I'm not even the author and I'm kinda angry at it :P

    I am explicitly management now. We have a high volume of customer interaction and business for several hours in a row and we need everyone focused doing that. Even when down one person on staff we get pretty screwed over so we really do need all hands on deck doing what they're supposed to.

    This one goddamn guy though. I don't understand how he works the hours he does while still being a minor. Like I guess he was pulled out of school and got his GED? Either way you're on the clock at work, so... work. I'm not saying people shouldn't talk / try to have whatever fun they can while on the job. I'm saying they also have to be doing the job. He doesn't. He literally just... wanders off once in a while, abandoning his task and sometimes we don't catch it right away so we fall behind in some way or another when we have to jump in while simultaneously try to get him back to where he's supposed to be.

    I'm also restaurant management. Your best bet is to put them somewhere that they can't vanish. I've got a couple of those but if I put them on main production lines they can't go anywhere because they don't have time for it.

    Make sure to chat with them about how getting the orders out first needs to be the priority and work from there.

    If they don't respond to gentle nudging to be more responsible for themselves or to low grade babysitting, you'll have to go to the manager tools that are much more patronizing. Like the anti phone policy that pretty much everybody has but isn't enforced. Utilizing disciplinary actions (writeups) for poor performance. Letting them know that if they dont improve someone else will get their hours.

    Ultimately if you just let them do whatever, other people will notice and follow suit. Gotta foster a culture where everybody helps each other out or else work sucks for everybody.

    Like I get kids are dumb, and a certain, tiny amount of leeway can be given what on account of their smooth brains and maybe not completely ossified skulls. But if I'm paying you to do a job you will do the job. If I say "I will give you x moneys for you to complete y tasks in z amount of time" then that is at minimum what I expect to happen. Even a tiny idiot baby can understand that. You don't do the tasks you don't get paid.

    You've given this kid ample opportunity. He's not correcting his behavior.

    I am explicitly management now. We have a high volume of customer interaction and business for several hours in a row and we need everyone focused doing that. Even when down one person on staff we get pretty screwed over so we really do need all hands on deck doing what they're supposed to.

    This one goddamn guy though. I don't understand how he works the hours he does while still being a minor. Like I guess he was pulled out of school and got his GED? Either way you're on the clock at work, so... work. I'm not saying people shouldn't talk / try to have whatever fun they can while on the job. I'm saying they also have to be doing the job. He doesn't. He literally just... wanders off once in a while, abandoning his task and sometimes we don't catch it right away so we fall behind in some way or another when we have to jump in while simultaneously try to get him back to where he's supposed to be.

    I'm also restaurant management. Your best bet is to put them somewhere that they can't vanish. I've got a couple of those but if I put them on main production lines they can't go anywhere because they don't have time for it.

    Make sure to chat with them about how getting the orders out first needs to be the priority and work from there.

    If they don't respond to gentle nudging to be more responsible for themselves or to low grade babysitting, you'll have to go to the manager tools that are much more patronizing. Like the anti phone policy that pretty much everybody has but isn't enforced. Utilizing disciplinary actions (writeups) for poor performance. Letting them know that if they dont improve someone else will get their hours.

    Ultimately if you just let them do whatever, other people will notice and follow suit. Gotta foster a culture where everybody helps each other out or else work sucks for everybody.
    I've been in this line of work for a decade out the near 2 I've been working for a living. I know what to do with him and where to put him (he's just qualified to be register biscuit), but he won't... stay there. And for what it's worth my boss has the same trouble keeping the kid to stay still and focused.

    I'm very recently promoted by the way so I'm trying not to do any harsh power flexes. I don't have the authority to fire him as someone suggested (besides there's someone else I would rather fire if I could), but I do have the authority to tell him to clock out and leave. It'd be a bad look though. And really not worth it; even if him being a body present at a basic position is met only half the time, it's better than having no body there. Not to mention the hoops I'd have to jump through about register / money counting horse shit.

    Like I get kids are dumb, and a certain, tiny amount of leeway can be given what on account of their smooth brains and maybe not completely ossified skulls. But if I'm paying you to do a job you will do the job. If I say "I will give you x moneys for you to complete y tasks in z amount of time" then that is at minimum what I expect to happen. Even a tiny idiot baby can understand that. You don't do the tasks you don't get paid.

    You've given this kid ample opportunity. He's not correcting his behavior.

    Eliminate him.
    I largely get that the younger people are gonna screw around to some extent. For the most part they will stop on their own when customers and orders come up to get the job done. They still have other tasks they could and should be working on, sure, but if they're getting the primary thing handled then I'm not that bothered by having to explicitly tell them "hey can you go stock up (whatever)" even if it's something they should be doing on their own initiative.

    I've got a different guy on the staff that is not only half-assing his position at our fryer, bulk-cooking things like crazy and producing a lot of food waste, but he jumps out of his lane into other positions and fucks up customer orders almost 100% of the time. THIS is a guy who is fucking things up on purpose. I mean, not with intent to get things wrong with the customer, but he is into the idea of doing things he is being told not to do. My boss is handling him though; I went in today to have a look at the schedule for this week and this fuck face is yet again working like 7 hours the whole week because he blew it last week (he had normal hours last week; for the two weeks prior, he was working 7 each). Hopefully this is the last chance he's getting to get his shit together.

    That guy I described above is way more troublesome than the kid I came in here posting about. I mean again it's a 17 year old being 17 vs a guy that's I think 21 who is supposed to be helping his household income and is absolutely not having any respect for the fact he has a job in a weak-ass economy. I dunno if making that argument to him would get him to come around because I'm not sure he'd care or really get it.

    I dunno. Both of them suck and I'm just blowing steam here I guess.

    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    Yeah, I'd give him maybe one more talk and make it clear that it's the last one. Lots of people looking for any job right now.

    Wow, that article is fascinating. It's like a train wreck. My only disappointment is these people seem to have no introspection. Not one seems to have pondered that maybe--just maybe--their libertarianism is the problem.

    My libertarianism is just fine, it's other people's libertarianism that's the problem

    That's the thing about "personal responsibility" - when you aren't responsible with something you are supposed to be, it ends up affecting a lot more than just your person.

    Reminder to self: Never, ever take a job in New Hampshire. Added it to the nogo zone, along with most of the deep south.

    How does a city like this exist and I didn't know about it until now? Setting aside the bears, I would have imagined this sort of anarchic takeover to have been met with the various federal powers, most especially the IRS.

    It's not a city. Population 1340. My town is bigger at 2000.

    Yeah it's not a city until it has a population of, I think 10,000? Maybe 50,000, it's been a while since I played SimCity.
