Anyone else’s parents using guilt and bullying to get them to spend the holidays together when you don’t feel comfortable because of Covid?

I sort of knew the I was the child of a narcissist but this confirms it.

Can my parents file taxes while getting paid in cash? Do they just self report the earnings or should there be supporting documents for them like 1099?

Money thread - in chicago. Want to get a nice house in the suburbs (budget is around 800k). One kid is 3 years old. Plan on second. Plan to put kids in public school and then private school for high school and likely fully find kids’ college. How much annual household income would be able to afford this? I’m looking at nice suburbs here. Looks like 800k is entry price and most household has a stay at home wife. Why people are so rich?

Covid question - I work for a small firm (7 lawyers, 4 staff) and do estate planning and probate. They stopped WFH in May, and my office’s Covid policies have been... lax. No masks, half the office has gotten it, I’ve had to self isolate because of work exposures, etc.

Now they want to go back to having clients in the office for estate planning meetings instead of zoom. I don’t feel comfortable being in an hour long meeting with people outside my household - do I bother saying anything?

We would be leaving for Mexico this coming weekend. We don’t have time to rebook given the timelines of our vouchers. I can’t decide if we should go or just eat the trip at this point
