Already have a crazy week lined up, prepared to work 65+ hours. The semi-retired partner decides (without asking) that I’ll have time to work on his daughter’s (not simple) taxes in 2 days. Oh. Ok 🙄

@KPMG 1 It’s a mid-size firm; this partner’s last initial is one of three that makes up the firm’s name, so I can’t really tell him “no”.

@EY 1 he can barely check his own email so I’m not terribly concerned that he’s reading this 😂

Debating if I should test my luck with the market to see if rates will drop or if I should go ahead and lock my rate in before Rates increase even more

I (29) suggest she uses her money to buy property separately whilst I’m happy to continue living together, whether it’s at my or her place.
She adamantly refused and cried and says we are buying together and she doesn’t want her own place.
I was calm and reasonable. What do I do?
