I usually just read these posts but I feel I have to respond to this one.
My name is Linda and I am living in Philadelphia, PA. 40 years old and
yes, I learned (and still am, darn it) things the hard way.
I had a nervous breakdown and refinanced the house twice within a
year, lost my job because the ex-boyfriend who was mentally,
emotionally, and (finally) physically abused, called the people I
worked with and started harassing them and telling them lies. Due to
the bad decisions I made while under that type of influence and losing
my job for six months, I may lose my home. I bought the house 10 years
ago and my payment was $320. After all the refinancing over the years
it is now (are you sitting down?) $1,471. My lawyer believes that
there were unlawful lending practices involved and that if it was a
“real” application I would have never been approved. No-document loans
and the appraisers were in on it (they would NEVER have appraised my
home at the price it was appraised for except to qualify me for the
loan).I am also bi-polar which didn’t help matters at all. I am hoping
for a 40 year mortgage at best.
I read the original post and I have to say that what Walmart did is
illegal. they are not allowed to release a worker due to pregnancy.
that is discrimination. if the job that she did was too physical they
are to find her a comparable job for the time of the pregnancy and
hold that job for up to one year under the family medical leave act
(flma). it shouldn’t matter if she was part time or not either. i
would check into that. flma is federal.
as for the license situation, more and more americans are having a
hard time getting licenses. my boyfriend is from jersey. you have to
have six points of id. all he wanted was a duplicate. he had to have
some form of mail with that address on it. his ex girlfriend isn’t
going to give him his mail, now will she? i thought perhaps he could
put a hold on the mail and pick it up. all he wanted to do was get his
license and put it in pa.
i can’t imagine why she would have to take the test over again, that
doesn’t seem fair. i am unfamiliar as to how that works in those
states. in pa once you take the test that is it. i am sure that if it
expires you may need to take the test again. i hated taking that test.
i was a nervous wreck. and i agree with chrissy, have her take in tn
to avoid all the hassle.
i wish her good luck and congrats on the baby!

> I had a friend who had a similar situation with the out of state
driver’s license. I think she will have to take the driver’s test
again to get her license, but instead of doing it in Carolina and then
transfer it to tn, she should just save the additional expense and
take the test in tn. it shouldn’t be that big of a deal to take the
test (assuming she’s been driving enough for experience). she should
check with the tenn dmv to see what would be required. she’ll need
her birth certificiate, but i’m not sure what else. good luck!
