Some overheard at work in meme form between coworker (we'll call him Luke*), me, and The Powers That Be (we'll call them Satan.)

*Names changed to protect the innocent

Luke to me:

Satan to coworker:

Coworker tells me he's made yet another plea for them to make me stay...

I explain that contrary to popular belief no matter what they felt I wouldn't be required to stay.  There is no legal indenture applying to me...

He chooses to ignore my delightful joke about indentured servitude...

I then try to get him to focus on training and going over some practical stuff that he needs to know

While thinking...

But helpfully pointing out in an uncharacteristically maternal manner...

and explaining that if he doesn't know what to do just ask a series of basic troubleshooting questions...

and if no joy then escalate...

I even threw in some advice about dealing with end users...

and a little coaching about how I approach embracing new challenges...

Only four more days ...until I get this crap via text and personal email rather than in person at work.

Delightful! Tech support kitty, LOL!

In case it wasn't clear Buffy, you tell a story via memes like nobody else. That's what I found delightful. Your former workplace was anything but. They took assholery to a new level, no compassion whatsoever shown toward you or your son. Enjoy your new job!

      This September 2019 article by Politico is a deep dive into the rat's nest of finances, real estate, and double-triple dealing going on at LU and with LU assets. There is also a 2017 article on the Miami flophouse owned by the Falwells.

      Also, Rolling Stone published June 2019 article on the Pool Boy saga.

      ETA: Also found a link to this 2018 article on the pool boy saga from Buzzfeed.

      Jokes aside, Anna is dressing her daughters in a very specific style, doesn't she? They used regular dresses in the past. Now, they are always pictured in homemade (?) patchwork dresses. It's a cute version of frumpers. In addition, they are always with dolls, girly crafts, babysitting etc. I know fundies reinforce sexism, but it's particulary evident with Anna. In the past, Mackwnzie and Michael were a team, now boys and girls are separated. 

      My guess is that after the Josh scandals, Anna decided (subconsciously, I assume) to not leave the cult but dive even deeper into her faith. She was already raised in a fundamentalist home and now that she’s gone through tough times in her adult life, she’s turning her home into an even more radical one. So her adherence to gender norms takes on a crazy level and her modesty standards are over the top. 

      Additionally, Anna has witnessed some of her siblings leaving their cult despite their super strict upbringing. Maybe she hopes to keep her own kids in the fold by being even stricter than her parents were? Whatever her reasoning might be, I feel so sorry for her children. 

      Regarding your other point: I cannot tell if the dresses Anna’s girls wear are home made or not. But if they are, why not use a little extra fabric and cover up those sinful collar bones? Why would they still need extra layers for modesty?
