Damn right, we just sippin on martini’s. We were born for this. No need to retire, no student debt, just kickin back in senior roles, waiting for the cards to play out. The graphics are perfect too Xena warrior princess getting ready to crush the cry babies. 👌 Maybe a little caption over the boomer with “pls fix”, little caption over the cry babies with “that’s bullying”, little caption over Gen x “Shaken not stirred"

I think that EY is home to some of the most ignorant managers I’ve ever come across. They might know how to amortize the crap out of a lease, but they sure lack a modicum of kindness and ability to actually problem solve. Can’t wait to leave this firm after COVID settles.

Hot Take: Call Her Daddy was a better podcast when it was both Alexandra Cooper and Sofia Franklyn. It's just not the same with Cooper doing the podcast solo with a guest here and there. I'm sure COVID causing the bars to close didn't do her any favors either, limiting her content.

I remember back in early April when covid really took its grips and people were told no layoffs in Q2. A PPMD on here commented that it’ll take 3-6 months before the real layoffs start. Crazy how true

I have been deliberating traveling to India for the past couple of months as I really miss my parents. This is the longest I have been without seeing them with no end of covid in sight. I’m just scared of traveling due to potential risk of catching Covid during flight. I’ll quarantine myself for 14 days away from them so that way I can avoid risking them. Not sure what to do...
