I’ve been having issues with mice in my apartment since early November. I’ve used all types of traps, bait, and hired an exterminator (with my own money) who just laid more traps/bait. I got a quote today from a different company for $670 because they will remove my dishwasher and reinstall it and seal holes there and in the cabinet. Is it reasonable to ask my landlord to cover some or at least half of this cost/reduce my next month rent? Is this quote reasonable?
Is it just me, or is it common for former union bosses who go into corporate management to have an inherent inclination try to treat their employees the same way they would treat their employer in their previous role? Anyone else have a similar experience?

I have a trip coming up in October on United and booked first class on points. I checked my flight and it's showing only snacks in First (this is a 7 hour flight). Does anyone know if this is true? If so I'm just going to downgrade to economy
I made the error of telling a recruiter my minimum preference of salary when she asked target salary. She confirmed that’s in line with the role pay scale plus a small bonus. The employer now made me an offer for this exact amount & small bonus.
Do I live with my error and just accept and potentially leave $ on the table? Or is it acceptable to counter with 5k more for example, (seeing as everyone usually recommends countering and that the employer is expecting a counter/can always do better)
Partner I work for I think is attracted to me. I’ve always maybe sensed it but then last week we were at a training and he would always look towards me and smile and they’d be long held smiles, and then would always try and sit next to me or across from me. And then when he didn’t he’d move his chair out a little so he could look at me. Then when he was leaving he came up behind and touched (not just tap) my shoulder to say good by.
Maybe it’s all in my head, but if not, what should I do?

How do you plan out your dates for maternity leave? I do not want to work up until my due date because I do not want the added stress prior to birth. I also want to give the people covering for me some clear instructions and don’t want to deal with going into labor while still in the middle of managing projects. My company does STD for the first 6 weeks but there is a one week “waiting period” that’s unpaid unless you put in PTO. How do you plan your last day knowing baby could come anytime?
I’m six weeks and have either a yeast infection or UTI (been awhile since I had either and symptoms since last night can go either way). Have an urgent care apt later today but worried about antibiotics or medications while it’s still so early and the risk of miscarriage or birth defects. Anyone been through this in first trimester?
I'm 36 weeks and struggling. I had my daughter at the height of the first COVID wave in 2020 and had to labor and recover completely alone due to the hospital regulations and frankly it sucked. Now I have a chance to be with my partner with #2 I really just don't want to catch it so late and am therefore trying to reduce risk.

First trimester insomnia?
I’m only about 5 weeks, but my sleep schedule has gone off the rail the last three nights. I’m sleepy/drowsy, settled in bed around the same time every night, and yet I cannot fall or stay asleep. I have a white noise machine, comfy bed, cool room.. etc. When I do fall asleep, it’s earlier in the morning and I sleep until 1/1:30pm. This was fine the first few nights since it was the weekend, but it can’t keep up. Anyone else experience this and have any recommendations?
I am 8 weeks pregnant, and recently have been getting really bad headaches, mostly on the right side of my head. Has anyone experienced this during their first trimester? Any advice or tricks on what to do?
