Today my boss asked me if I was okay, and I just burst into tears. It wasn't even in person either, it was over bloody Slack. Wtf is wrong with me?
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?

If one is on a long workshop call (not an optional one and spanning more than a few hours) that spans across the lunch time period, does your firm or client generally provide for lunch when it's been in-person, or reimburse for lunch when it's been in-person or working from home (the latter particularly due to COVID)?
