Default Is this weird?

Thumbs up for you!
I'm on your [and your cats'] side.
What's it to them anyway what your reason is, I think it's more odd they
felt they had to juge and voice their critic of your beliefs - unless you're
already on that kinda friends terms with them.
Btw, love your signature, " Slave of the Fabulous Furballs"

As some of you may know after almost 2 years of trying I finally got a

permanent job!

Doing the paperwork there's some sort of insurance policy so if I die in

service there will be money to be paid out and I get to nominate who gets
what share

So a third each to both my brothers so they can cover the funeral costs

and the other third..

The system doesn't let me enter a third so I end up calling HR.

Their system only lets me enter 2 names but the HR person can override

the system:

The conversation went: "Okay so who do you want to give the last third


"My friend Jim Martin"

"You've got him down as the person to contact in an emergency? So is he

your partner?"

"No he's just a very good friend who has promised me if anything happens

to me he will give my cats a good home with him and since that means he'll
have two extra mouths to feed and vet bills etc I want him to have the money
so he won't be out of pocket"

The reply was: "That's a very weird reason"

I think my reply was along the lines of "What is weird about making sure a

friend isn't put out of pocket and providing for my cats?"
