Partner called me on my vacation to scold me for “not handling a deadline before leaving for vacation” for a deposition that the client didn’t want going forward with anyway. He also mentioned two other “deadlines” that I missed when in fact they were done. The depo was ultimately taken off calendar, so it was never “missed”. Partner then sent me an invite for a disciplinary meeting with him for the day I get back, again while I’m still on vacation. Any advice aside from lateraling?

I want space and feel like I could maybe even keep my car with me in Hoboken. Seems generally cheaper too, but I’m less concerned about price than quality of life. Would definitely prefer more bang for $. Thanks!
