Pros of Working in a Boys Club: The F Bathroom is now yours. Leave skin care. A hairbrush. Toothbrush. A cot. Buy a door lock. Move in. Sell your condo. Get fired then live rent-free in the vents.
Attention Woke White People: Don’t be this woke white person. Laid off in April. Asked my ACD for final comps of my work for my portfolio. She told me it hadn’t gone public but to check back. I hit her up in May. Nothing. I hit her up in June. Nothing. I hit her up in August. Ignored...ignored...ignored in three separate texts. Finally emailed and mentioned reaching out to the C-level executives and like magic, boom! I get the work in 20 minutes flat. Don’t post BLM stuff if you’re a d*ck.
Are HH layoffs this week?
If you get fired, are you allowed to tell others that you were laid off? Asking for a friend.

Heard through the grapevine. Bunch of analysts got fired for getting too drunk at DU and passed out in the bushes. Can anyone confirm or deny?
Been furloughed for a month. Sucks, but silver-lining is that I'm building a game with my girlfriend. If you're furloughed / laid off, what're you doing w your newfound free time?
A little bit sad that I'm rolling off a project tomorrow because that means I probably won't see the Grindr boy I've been hooking up with at the hotel since the beginning of the project again 😞
For those who have had COVID, how long did you feel constantly tired? It’s been a week for me.
Anyone else finding it very difficult to get any enjoyment out of account management these days? Any coping tips? I feel like being an account person is especially difficult in the COVID era since so much of what we do is manage communications, ensure the team is set up well etc. None of this feels particularly fun alone staring into the void of Zoom all day ... but the same pressure is still there. I feel like I spend every week counting down to the weekend which kinda sucks.
