Anyone else have a parent who blatantly favors their most irresponsible, underachieving child? I earned a scholarship and worked through college, didn't receive more than a few thousand dollars from my parent during college and grad school. Sibling loses scholarship due to too much partying, so parent pays most expenses and tuition so sibling can continue to party and not get a job. Sibling almost fails out of grad school, but barely lands a job. Parent is now buying sibling new car.
Any foster moms out there? I’m curious if companies provide parental leave to support new fostering relationships? Have your companies been supportive of the time commitment during work hours?
Should synthetic abortion be a thing? I.e. it is made legal for a man to declare before a judge that he wants no part in a child’s life prior to the child being born. He then has no requirement to pay child support but will also never have the right to see the child. Essentially, it’s abortion from the male side. If both man and woman are required to create a pregnancy, but only the woman gets a say after that if the child will be born, is that fair to the man?
Misled on Maternity Leave Policy. I found out I only get 4 weeks pay for maternity leave (STD +“sick days”). I will take 12 weeks but wont get paid for 8 weeks. I work for a US, west coast based company in the tech/VC industry. Their website claims to offer “paid parental leave and other progressive benefits for parents”. I didn’t find out until after I was hired their pay was only 8 weeks but since I have been at the company less than 12 months, I don’t qualify for their policy. Is this unfair?
My wife and I need a break. Had our first baby in March and we are worn out (getting better) but very tired. Wife said to me “I need us time”, and she’s never said that in the 3 years we’ve been married. Suggestions on getaways or things to do?

I am currently covering for someone on paternity leave. This means I've doubled the Sales Managers I'm supporting as well as the clients I'm supporting. I don't mind doing the work but I'd like to ask to be compensated for the increased workload. Has anyone done this? If so, how did you go about it? I'm relatively new to Tech so I'm not sure how to start the conversation.

Custody case last week. On direct: Dad testifying about how his contact name in Mom's phone is baby daddy. (Pretending to cry): "it's derogatory, I know my child thinks I'm just a baby daddy." During recess: Me to the GAL: will you dare me to sing the baby daddy song in court? GAL: I'd pay to see that. Me, on cross: Mr. L, isn't that an inside joke bt you and Ms. L. Doesn't it come from the song from the 90s, "who dat is, that's just my baby daddy, who dat is..." (singing the song in th
How soon after maternity leave can you switch jobs without it being…rude? For context, I was eye-ing other positions but then got pregnant and now I feel like I should stick around through my awesome 16 week leave. I would return to work next spring. Would it be appropriate to plan a job change in summer 2023?

Anyone here actually subscribe to the Windows Insiders Edition thing? I tried it for a bit, and it boggles my mind that native CUDA and some nice UI experiments can possibly be worth your system occasionally deciding it's gonna take 20 minutes to boot and remain only half functional because of a bad push

How to negotiate a raise for a promotion? I've been offered a job in a different group at the same company that would be a promotion and a 10% raise on my current salary. I just received a 3% annual raise 1 month ago and the 10% is on top of that. My new salary would be $106k. Market value would be closer to $110-120k based on what I've been told by recruiters for similar roles. Any advice for how to negotiate to get the offer closer to market value?
What’s your gender, age, & city? After dropping your info, respond to others in your area
Landed my dream job in my dream city. Recently told someone I thought was a true friend through text but they didn't congratulate me or even respond. I am generally pretty ok with self-esteem and not putting my self worth on others but it just sucks knowing that someone I valued didn't feel the same way about me. Sorry just wanted to rant, and potentially get some advice on how to overcome this expectation and disappointment cycle with people...
