8 o'clock meeting in the client site, caught an early flight and planned to get some sleep on the flight. The fucking baby next to me started crying his lungs out. FML.
Pregnant wife just returned from A meditation retreat and is craving Indian food. Any recommendations for decent/ authentic places in Dallas/ Irving area?
Dog parents: Planning to adopt a puppy 🐶 I have volunteered in a shelter and have basic knowledge about owning a dog- but any recommended books / podcasts to help be prepared?
Either my neighbors are trying to make a baby (very aggressively) or somebody is getting assaulted...trying to sleep...I'm okay with the sex...but what if it's not...should I call the cops? #Questions
Husband and I looking to adopt a puppy (he doesn’t travel). Seriously considering outsourcing the potty training step by sending the dog to training camp. Too much? Any experience doing so?
While hosting a mundane status call, I was watching this golden retriever puppy fetching a puck on ice video, and 🐶 was so funny I giggled like a little kid.. forgot I was not on mute !
Shady or not? Met someone on dating app. Made no mention of having a kid until first date. Nothing in profile about being a parent etc. said it's because they wouldn't get any dates if they had.
Quite surprised how often I get called a girl in a professional setting. I turned 18 quite a while ago! Everyone must think I am a child genius wahoo! That's it right?
Just another puppy pic. Say hi to my baby 😍
Found out this week an old friend is now having a kid. This person is a good human but for a variety of reasons, they aren’t so great when it comes to anything romantic with the opposite sex (myself, mutual friends, etc). They managed to get pregnant with someone lives across the country from their old neighborhood. Instead of being happy for them, I hate that the only thing I can think is this will always come to mind taking safe sex precautions knowing that it was definitely unplanned.
Hi ladies. A birth control question. I take oral BC on time every day but I am struggling to feel comfortable with sex without a condom. I know BC is something like 99% effective but I am not ready for the repercussions of failure - whether raising a child or choosing not to, both are decisions I do not want to make. My partner is frustrated by this but defers to me and is willing to do whatever I'm comfortable with. I want to become comfortable without condoms. Any ideas?
I really want to adopt a puppy but don’t know how I can take care of it if I travel too much for work. Husband does not travel but usually doesn’t get home until 8PM M-F. Thoughts? How do you do it?
When I was 13, I was a very impressionable kid. An older cousin of mine had told me that everything on the news is a lie and that there’s always another story to historical events. This lead me to googling every single event in history with the word ‘truth’ attached to it so I could find out what really happened lol. I thought I was the smartest kid in my middle school because I believed we faked the moon landing, the titanic was a hoax, and that they put fluoride in the water to make us passive
I wish some parents in our community would take responsibility for their kids' actions instead of praising the kid when they did something wrong: https://youtu.be/RliKsJlRUJo
My mother sent me a check for $200 for Christmas. She is retired and on a fixed income, not rich by any means. I don’t need this money. Is there a polite way to not cash this check?
Feel so bad for the wailing kid’s mom. She is getting the stares. The baby has not stopped crying on this 2.5 hours. Glad we are landing in 20.
I used to be a sugar baby
Parenting question: Most of my extended family and in-laws are blue collar workers. While I went to grad school & did well in my career, they don't aspire for much & are very content working 9-5 manually intensive jobs. I realize I sound like a coastal elite, but ideas such as wealth creation and retiring early don't appeal to them. I'm concerned some of their ideas, especially the lack of drive, would impact my kid if they spent time with them. Is my concern valid & if so how to manage?
Married woman with a 2 year old kid and found out last week that my husband has been cheating on me for the last 1 year with a coworker who lives in the same apartment complex. Feel like a fool as we all meet socially (she is married too, without kids) and we have had them over at our place so many times (part of our Covid bubble). Turns out those “gym sessions”were just ways to get action. Her husband went to work as essential worker so basically had the the place to themselves. Devastated
US Immigration H1B visa question - My girlfriend got terminated from her job while she's in her home country country for a health related trip. She was hoping to get her visa stamping done in the next few days but I'm not sure what her options are in this case. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Who here agrees?
I want to cry. Got told by manager that they do not give pay raise as €40k is the maxed cap for this role (I work in higher ed recruitment and I overhit my target too). A connection of mine went for an interview last week. Same department, same role and was offered €45k. I’m in the middle of applying for other jobs but it still hurts! 😢 What would you do if you were me?
Any advice on managing and working with 22-25 year olds, especially ones who get offended very easily and have huge sense of entitlement?
Thoughts on exiting to a family office private equity fund? What’s the best way to stand out and prep for interviews?
Hi! 29F visiting Austin with friends for a weekend in January and would love some recommendations for restaurants. Thanks in advance :)
A friend is looking to hire a director full time in LA in-house for a fitness brand, doing videos very similar to those for the classes that are on Peloton. Directing the class instructors, etc. Doesn’t sound like it includes directing ads for the brand, just the class workout videos. Any leads greatly appreciated.
Can anyone refer me.
I will be joining Deloitte. What things should I keep in mind for my career with Deloitte? How is the experience of working with Deloitte?
How would you answer this interview question: “How do you run a program end to end?” I got asked this question during my FAANG interview and I don’t think I answered it well
Does anyone here have mad SQL skills?
Does anyone have a cleaning service/ individual maid they like and would recommend? Looking for a deep clean for moving into a new apartment in Lakeview
Junior associates, We love you. We know you’re working hard. We want you to grow as attorneys and learn from us (because frankly, we need help). Part of that learning process is using your judgment and being resourceful. Please spend at least 5 minutes trying to find the answer yourself before you call/email me. I shouldn’t be googling for you. Sincerely, Exhausted Senior Associate.
