My SO gets really upset about background noise when he’s on calls. Running the sink, accidentally knocking something, emptying the trash, opening a closet etc. We live in a 1 bedroom apt and both work in the living area. Today maintinence came to fix a broken thermostat, they knock and he’s on a call and he gestures angrily at me. I let the guy in, he’s gone 5min later. After he yells at me how I never think of him first and I should have had them come back. AITA?

Does anyone here have experience working as a PM for a non-profit? I have an interview with one that I would love to be a part of. I can’t find much information online regarding salary expectations. I am willing to take a pay cut to join a non-profit I am passionate for. That being said - I’m trying to balance knowing it may be lower with not accepting a low-ball offer due to lack of information.
