Is anyone reporting this besides Dickles. I wonder where she stole that picture from.

Seems like a really stupid time to give up his day job. Hopefully he's not boarding the grafting train.

I wonder if he left for reasons other than going to Nepal, as it has been rumored. He might have found a more lucrative position somewhere? Regardless, it does seem like an odd time to be quitting.

I have seen rumors the Dullards are heading back to Nepal.

Whatever will JimBob do???? He didn't mean for them to ACTUALLY serve anyone other than him. Derick is wise to get his wife the hell out of Arkansas.

I agree RE getting the hell out of Arkansas right now, though I'm sure they'll be back.

For those who will bash Derick leaving his job, tax accountants are VERY employable. I just learned last weekend that they can make 80% (or more) of a full-time salary by contracting during tax season. It's actually a very good job to have if you want flexibility.

Where would the baby stay? They can't convince anyone that they're going as missionaries if they'll be hauling around a baby.

They must be desperate to get out of Duggarville.

Just based on the timing, I would wonder if Wal-Mart asked him to resign because they don't want to be in the middle of the controversy over the child molestation?

I would hope that Wal-Mart has the capacity to see that Derick is not Josh and should not be held accountable for Josh's actions. I don't know, it doesn't seem like Wal-Mart is in any kind of hot seat for employing Derick. I can understand if this decision was reached amicably because Derick has been needing a tremendous amount of time off work lately. But I don't think Wal-Mart would ask Derick for a resignation over an event that happened long before Derick even came into the picture and an event that Derick was not involved in.

Missionaries take their kids with them all the time (on long-term trips, not short-term ones).

It should be pretty easy to verify whether or not this is true. Pickles' proof is his auto-reply, so if someone wants to know if this is for real, you can just email his Walmart address and see if you get the same auto-reply.

Someone already did this in the other Jill thread. It's legit.

He might be on leave for the new baby. What's the auto-reply say? Companies sometimes suspend accounts when employees go out on leave.

I just did with my fake e-mail, and, yep, I got the same response. Seems legit, unless someone went to the trouble of making a fake Derick Walmart e-mail address.

I should've figured this was being discussed elsewhere. 8-)

The baby has lost the new car smell...no way he is on leave. Plus the auto-reply proves that too.

I doubt it. Can you imagine the conversation in the Wal-Mart boardroom?

"We have to do something about the people we employ! We're drowning in controversy!"

"By god, we've held strong through decades of lawsuits and boycotts. We already pay our cashiers a whole ten cents above minimum wage* and I'll be damned before we pay them one cent more."

"No, I'm talking about that guy in accounting whose brother-in-law was in the tabloids!"

*speaking from personal experience, not that I'm bitter or anything

I might be in the minority here, but good for them. The 9 to 5 small-town Arkansas life might not be a good fit for this young couple - Derick sounds like an adventurous person.

I was assuming at first that this break was in response to the Josh scandal, but wasn't there a clip showing their announcement of a big change BEFORE the scandal broke?

I'm all for people switching up their life if they so desire, especially when young and with a portable breastfeeding baby. We only get the one shot at life (far as I know) so why not try to make what we want of it?

Just somebody please tell me the Dillards are NOT heading to Nepal!?!? That's more foolhardy than adventurous at the moment, surely. I've been to Nepal and enjoyed it, but the country sounds devastated and dangerous now.

      Happy Shavuot to all those who celebrate! I have no idea why, but for some reason God commands us to eat ice cream. Well, dairy. So eat cheese! Eat pizza! Eat ice cream! Eat cheesecake! It has no calories because God commands us to do so!

      I know it’s just a beauty contest but this is the 4th time Jamaica was snubbed in favour of 5 contestants who were clones (with the exception of Peru) 
      Still can’t believe Mexico won. Even Olivia Culpo was looking at the results confused😂
      Shoutout to Haiti, Canada, Thailand and Myanmar who were also snubbed.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      I just made a lovely discovery! Type a colon, then a ) without any spaces. Then type a space. 
          
      I am ridiculously happy to discover this! (I also have a nagging feeling that I should have figured this out sooner...)

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.
