Any recommendations for really good sound machines to completely block out loud noise? I live in the North End and am so angry…loud drunk assholes yelled in the street last night and woke me up (even with my loud AC on which typically blocks out most noise) and it took me forever to fall back asleep and sleep quality was terrible because I was on edge.

For sleep I use the Amazfit Zenbuds, they are in-ear white noise emitting earplugs. I find them very effective as the white noise is closer to your ear, so it masks more outside sounds.

Hey Genius, I’ve lived in the North End for ten years now and have never had this problem until now.

I think the only buildings in the North end that wouldn’t have this problem are the taller luxury apartments

Taller*

I usually just have a white noise machine and a fan on and sleep like a baby. I've also sound proofed my windows

I use the Yogasleep Dohm sound machine for construction noise around my apartment and although it doesn’t completely block it, anything helps!

I use this sleep machine + noise cancelling AirPods in the north end and it works perfectly for me.

Has anyone put together gifts for new fathers at their company? We've had a couple of recent first time mother's but have a first time father coming up. I'm assuming most of the items can be the same as they were focused more on the baby or like door dash gift cards, but is there anything father specific i should include before he starts his parental leave?

Hi everyone, current job has obnoxiously long notice period and they won’t let me leave for health reasons. Wondering what my options are if there are any? I never signed a contract for my second year in and definitely did not have an opportunity to renegotiate my terms for my second year at the job. Right now I’m overworked and really want to step away but my job is not letting me do so. Would love some advice if i should involve lawyers vs continue talk to my bosses (who have not been helpful)
