Do people expect you to reply when they send you “thank you!”? I always reply you’re welcome or no problem but sometimes I’m slightly worried if they are busy with tons of other important things and when they get a message notification and see my “you’re welcome” they will see that as a waste of their time… and even just liking their thank you would push a notification to them too. But simply ignoring a thank you just seems rude.

You’re overthinking it OP. Just do you. Doesn’t matter either way tbh.

I do a mixture of both depending on my mood. It really doesn’t matter. Focus on important stuff like trying to be happy 😬

If I send “thank you” that’s the end of the convo for me. If someone replies with “you’re welcome” I just ignore it. I think it’s a bit annoying. But again, that’s my personal take on it.

The conversation should end at “thank you.”

If you send it right away it’s good. If you don’t see it till 10 or more minutes later, don’t bother.

Don’t sweat it. They won’t even remember by the end of the day. Thank you and you’re welcome won’t prevent you from getting promoted (I hope not lol says a lot about the culture if that’s the case).

You’re just like me. Then I learnt to stop over thinking and just said f it. Why do I care? If they’re even slightly irritated, they’ll get over it.

I say no problem if they’re above me and I want them to like me hahahhaha

If “no problem” annoys you, you’re not really thankful, are you? Since it’s their job… Maybe don’t say thanks haha

If you say thank you then you should be concerned if you get an answer. Same would go with asking someone how they are.

Hi 🐠! What are some tangible methods you have successfully used to avoid lifestyle creep? I currently max my 401k and IRA each year, and was thinking of putting 50% of raises/bonuses towards investments so I never see it hit my bank account, but curious what you all have done. Trying to find a balance of prep for fin freedom while enjoying life. Thanks!

If I gave a salary range in my pre-screen and then got an offer in that range, can I negotiate higher? They said 70-80k. I said I’m look for something higher (more in the 90-100k) and they said that should be doable, but really I want something in the 110-120k range (gave a lowball bc didn’t want to turn them off in the first round). How do I got about asking for higher?

Has anyone ever used the SkyBaby for flying? What are your thoughts? Me and the 6mo old will be flying solo cross country. It’s not our first rodeo, but the last one (when he was 4mo) was pretty miserable. I had the boba wrap on the way there and it was just way too hot and confining. The baby bjorn on the way back was better but he still got pretty squirmy so I ended up taking him out and holding him for 4 hours. And tickets are way too expensive for his own seat.
