A New Employment Opportunity

A woman seeks advice about whether or not she should work for a company that her ex works for.

What Would Debbie Do?

A New Employment Opportunity

Dear Debbie,

I was offered a job where my ex works, and it is $6,000.00 more a year at a great company. Should I go for it to better myself and not worry about him?


Dear Unsure,

This is a loaded question, as I don’t really know what your motives are. Are you interested in taking this job to prove something to your ex? Did you break up with him, or the other way around? There are so many unanswered questions for me, that I really can’t advise you one way or the other. I will tell you this, though: If you both are friends, and there are no hard feelings, it would seem as though this would be a good opportunity for you to advance. But if there are any sub-plots remaining-any lingering feelings, resentments, or anger, I’d advise you to seriously ask yourself why you would put yourself in a situation that could prove difficult for either of you.

Ask yourself the tough questions, and be honest with your answers…then, I think you’ll know exactly what to do.

That’s what I would do.

  1. If you are taking the gig to spite your ex, it will only come back to bite you in the rear, Debbie is right, ask yourself the hard questions.

  2. I can’t say I sympathize with anyone who wears a size 22, let alone a 32. There’s a reason you feel badly about yourself, and that’s because you’re grossly obese. Ask any doctor. You didn’t give your height, but no one needs to weigh more than 150. It’s what you’re eating that’s making you fat, and it doesn’t cost a thing to cut down on the junk food; in fact, you’d save money if you did, and you’d eventually feel better about yourself when you’re a size 14 or 16 than you do now.
