“You are horribly misinformed. 100% preventable disease? Ok I will tell my friend that.... oh wait, I can't because she is not with us anymore.
Man, what is with the comments on this thread? They are getting more crass as the day goes on.”
“Speaking without any experience whatsoever and I probably shouldn't even have an opinion on this but I think they do it for power. It's not just a transaction for sex. It's a transaction that denotes that they have power over whomever for however long they pay for it.”

“You're overthinking it. For him, it's convenient and easily affordable, with no strings attached. He said it himself, "I don't pay them for sex, I pay them to leave." The sexual equivalent of fast food.”

“Yet The 48 Laws Of Power states that playing power games with money isn't the way to go.”
“I think there is a lot more to this than we are ever going to be privy too. I am sure it didn't just end once she put the phone down after that call. There would have been serious consequences, not only from the hospital but the Royals too.
Again it's not always cut and dry.”

“I have begun a recent job search in Canada and it has enlightened me to say the least. I started off with an honest reflection of my work experience and references. One company went through a couple of interviews with me before finally telling me that HR couldn't be bothered to call my Irish references. After sending out another 100 resumes and not getting a bite I decided to change my resume entirely and lie about my past work experience. Now I wasn't saying I could fly spacecrafts, I was merely stating that my experience took place in Canada. I must have got 5 or 6 calls in one week on the heels of my new fake resume.
How sad that my honest resume is overlooked by HR because of my country of origin. And what's even more disturbing is that Canada have just upped the amount of work visas for the Irish wanting to come to Canada to 6000. Someone should explain to them that they will have to lie in order to get employment.
Sorry for my rant. It's just that old buzzwords may not be the reason you aren't getting that job.”

“Damn, I didn't think of that possibility. My husband's been having problems getting a job, and I wonder if its the same reason (different country though). Mind you, in this day and age of email, I would have thought they would just send a standard email asking the relevant questions rather than calling.”
