Hi ladies. I'm seeking a recommendation for an Amazon (or Office Depot) laptop bag for use in those occasions when I take my "work" laptop to and from client meetings and court proceedings. Anyone have a recommendation they love? It would be great if: 1) it was feminine but could be gender neutral for occasional use by others; 2) needs to fit a 17" laptop; 3) has the ability to hold the charger and a few extras (pen, post it's, and maybe even a small mouse); and 4) is around $75-$100. Thanks!

I just finished a big jury trial with a senior partner (SP). There were co-parties w/separate counsel. SP mentally checked out, to the point that co-counsel was asking what SP was doing/if SP was okay. I ended up handling most everything. SP did a few parts but went rogue and did things that were offensive/risky/bad for client. It became clear that SP is not performing like SP used to and may be a liability. Do I tell someone at my firm? Don’t want to offend SP or cause drama, but I’m concerned.
