    Rule29

    You should be available for after work drinks and also for any faculty dinners which occur at 6pm in the city. Taking part in these social events promotes good relationships in the workplace.

    What the??? And who is going to pick up my kids? I dropped them off at 7.30am and would much prefer to be spending time with them than all you people who I have already spent all day with. And no I don't feel like a beer, I am still breastfeeding!

    god what is WITH these people??? what planet do they come from???

    we had a discussion about women's equality at my workplace recently and they were saying how if a man leaves work early to get his kid from school/daycare, everyone goes 'ahhh isn't that sweet, he's such a hands-on dad.' but when a woman leaves work early to pick up her kid, they're all like 'she's not committed enough' or 'what a slacker' or 'what a nuisance she's leaving early, she's obviously not pulling her weight!'

    has anyone read the book 'i don't know how she does it' by allison pearson? it was recommended to me in another thread by another bubhubber, it's a fictional story about a working mum but SO true! it's very funny

    Rule 30:
    If you are a young working mother, it is because you can't be bothered to make the commitment to your child because you are young and only interested in your career.

    also please refer to

    Rule 16 If you are 'young' and a working mum, you are dumb and should have waited to have kids till you had more money

    Young women just don't get it, you just CANNOT be a good mother AND have a career - those terms are mutually exclusive

    I'm not a young mum. But you know what - we could if society had any interest in helping us. I waited to establish my career - I had a wonderful supportive boss. . . .who was promoted wile I was on Mat leave. Since then the company has screwed me every which way it can. It's been such a disappointment.

    Rule 17 If you are 'older' and have kids, you must have been dumb with your money when you were young and waited too long to have kids

    Rule 18 Expect that if you don't like your job and dare complain it's actually 'cos you secretly envy SAHP's

    Rule 19 There are lots of jobs for mothers b/w 9am and 3pm, you just aren't looking hard enough
    Loving this thread!

    Rule 7, clause 1 - except for the Teachers who are also working mothers and who totally get that this is not only a pointless activity, but also give reasonable amounts of time for work to be completed at home, and try to communicate effectively with parents so as to not clash with work commitments.

    Rule 7, clause 2 - Teachers who are also working mothers will learn to smile politely at all the parents who drop their children off and flippantly remark "I don't know how you put up with all of them..." or "You must be looking forward to a break over the holidays". ...Yes, that's when I get peace and quiet and put my feet up. No, wait, what was I thinking? .... that's when I balance spending time with my own children and plan all of my work for the next term. As a teacher I get far too many holidays, why should I actually rest on one of them?

    Rule7, clause 3 - Teachers who are also working mothers need never sleep because although they only get paid for 25 hours a week, if they dont work at least 50 hours a week they will never keep up with the paperwork and marking, and then they will be told to "make a choice" between being a parent and a teacher. True story.
