Grave mistake.. "Interesting proposal work", especially over the holidays is a waste. Give a ton of non billable hours for low likelihood of staffing or recognition. You'd be better off sending a few happy holiday emails to managers /sms you want to work with

OP I'm actually working the 3 days next week as well :) I'd rather use my PTO when my project is doing a lot to take a break from the hectic life. I know quite a few people doing the same as well because it's going to be a light week anyways. Don't let these harsh people bring you down!

Trying to help a friend going through a rough time. She has no assets to speak of and has escaped a DV situation and has many liabilities/expenses. She needs to file for divorce and bankruptcy but her in-laws are demanding that she pay them for amounts she and her husband had borrowed for living expenses - they made her sign a promissory note (which I find despicable). Are there any recommendations for legal services that can help her? Should she file for bankruptcy or divorce first? Any recs?
