A vendor I’ve never heard of invited me to connect on LinkedIn. 10 minutes after I decline, they call my work and cell. Ignored both but if they call again should I tell them off?

And now I’m contacting you on here. When can we talk?

They’ll eventually email you where you can tell them never to call your cell phone and thanks but no thanks. Never good to burn bridges with aggression.

100% sure you will never need to work them. Or is it better to say, not relevant now. Assuming you looked up the company and they aren’t something your agency would benefit from talking to

How did they get your cell!?

like

Good question. No idea. I did get four salespeople from different companies asking me to connect so I wonder if someone shared my info.

Dear God, yes.

Wow. That’s aggressive

My wife’s period is a horrible, angry time and I obviously can’t do anything about it, can’t say anything about it, and can’t count on her for any sort of task for the next week at least. And I have to suck it up and deal with someone I love treating me horribly, every month, until the wonderful issues that come with menopause. I really just need someone to tell me this is…something I can actually get through.

Every time I fight with my parent, they bring up the fact that they spent all their money on me and my education. I am grateful that I had parents to support me. But, to always bring it up and to try to guilt me does not sound healthy to me. I am beginning to question my parent’s behavior. Is this toxic? Do other people’s parents also always bring up how much they spent all their life earnings on their kids and how we would be nothing without out them ?
