We’re still waiting on an email that’s supposed to come this afternoon (unsure what it says). Clients and firms are ghost towns. One firm sent an email yesterday deciding on working from home

He is great and we have an amazing relationship. However sometimes I just get frustrated dealing with the cultural differences.
