Garlic is a wonderful repellant.

Adopt an uncompromising diet like vegan, or just pretend you have one I guess!

Do you have significant other? I always say I have a virtual dinner date with my girlfriend. Works like a charm

Hi,
I just joined DI and have been asked to travel once every month to the client location. Anyway I can refuse this ? I made the switch because of the same reason as I cant travel much, and my HR in Deloitte is aware of the same.
All including HR and Resource Manager are saying to try for 2-3 months,and they will release me from the project if things still don't work out by then. Should I trust them or its just a standard tactic? I can resign,but I dont want to go that road so soon, honestly.

Someone from another department tried to brief my teams in on their project with zero context, info, or details for them to put together a creative response. I told them to supply that information first and that they could brief the team once they do and that I'd be happy to help.

They then spat the dummy and went straight to my boss saying I was not cooperating and making their job difficult. I've now got a meeting with my boss about this EOW.

How do I approach this / what do I say?

Hello!👋🏽I’m new :) how do you calculate your travel/overnight fee? I charge hourly. My client requested that I fly to a location to shoot a video. I will be away for 4 days. Is hourly rate x 12 hour x 4 + overnight fee standard? They are also covering my expenses.

I don’t understand why Biden doesn’t just come out and say, “we’re going to legalize cannabis once and for all.” Honestly, these campaign managers do not get it. Either candidate pushes for legalization, the race is over. Based on polls it’s basically the only landslide agreement across the country in favor for legalization. People like pot.
